Jesus is our example for everything, even though we may not think He went through what we are going through. The reason we think this is because we have limited Jesus Christ as God to His human life on earth as expressed in the gospels. But the Lord is unlocking the mystery in the history we call the Old Testament. Jesus is visible in the Old Testament in so many places, but we missed them because they were hidden for such a time as this, just like the truth of the Gentiles as members of the body of Chist was hidden until God unlocked that revelation for the apostle Paul.
Jesus is all over the book of Daniel and today I was reading Daniel 6 and I saw Him again, when Daniel was thrown in the lion’s den. Peter says, Satan roams around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, which makes the connection to the lion’s den. But the point I wanted to make to you is, have you felt falsely accused and imprisoned in some way because of those false accusations? David did, and he penned it in Psalm 55 when he says, I could have handled it but it was you, a brother, one who I went to the house of God with. David, like Daniel and Jesus were innocent despite the accusations and imprisonments levied against them.
I sense there are people in the body of Christ that have had false accusations levied against them and have been imprisoned because of it. The Lord would say, first of all this is the work of Satan, not a man, and the Lord has seen the injustice and He is about to release you from the imprisonment of those false accusations. Here is how it is said in Daniel 6, “Daniel spoke to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths and they have not harmed me, inasmuch as I was found innocent before Him; and also toward you, O king, I have committed no crime.” Then the king was very pleased and gave orders for Daniel to be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den and no injury whatever was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.” Your trust in your God is causing you to come out without injury despite the accusations. It’s a new day, and it is all about Yahweh!
