You profess faith in Christ? But how real is that faith in school and when you are in University how real will be there. Away from the Church, away from your parents are you true to your convictions? For faith to be faith it must be tested. Every Christian must face Babylon and Babylon represents the world. And in the world, you will be pressurised to conform to the worldly mindset.
Satan is on the lookout for the best of our youth, he wants their talents and their knowledge for his kingdom. He wants our budding musicians to play and sing the songs of the world, he wants our future authors to write the empty and vulgar stories that fill the best seller lists, he wants our doctors to capitulate to the secular clamour for abortion and transgenderism, he wants our public speakers to address any issue but Christianity, he wants our politicians to conform to the secular mindset that drives society, he wants our scientists to tolerate the evolutionary mind set. To the youth of today I appeal – don’t let Satan have the best that God has given you. He will take you and use you and then your soul will be lost.
Daniel is a significant book for us to study. We can take encouragement from this man who served his God with distinction in the most hostile society imaginable…We may consider our times to uncertain, but our situation was not as grim as the days experienced by Daniel. Yet still he kept his faith in God and he learned that in that darkest day God was on the throne.
Babylon did everything that was humanely possible to eradicate Jewish culture from Daniel but still he did not forget the God of his Fathers and boldly represented His name in a hostile culture.
