The Prince of Greece Part 1

Prince of Greece Part 1

In Daniel 10:20 it reads; Then he (the angel) said (to Daniel), “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.” (Italics mine)

The prince of Persia is a spiritual principality. He is so powerful that the angel sent to Daniel needed help from the arch angel Michael to be able to get to Daniel (verse 13), and he was going to have to fight going back as well. The physical manifestation of the prince of Persia outworked itself through the Persian empire, but the power behind this empire was spiritual. Likewise the angel talking to Daniel said that once he had gone forth then the prince of Greece would come (another spiritual principality).

God's Commands to the Ends of the Earth

Ends of the Earth Part 2

In my last article we looked at the Biblical phrase “the ends of the earth.” We saw this encompasses all the island nations from Japan through to New Zealand, in fact all the countries on the immediate western side of the international dateline. We also saw that New Zealand is the “End of the Earth” or the “Uttermost part of the Earth”. But the Bible doesn’t just mention where these nations are, it commands them to do certain things. Let’s take a look (they’re mostly self explanatory):

Isaiah 45:22.
“Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.”

Is New Zealand in the Bible?

Ends of the Earth Part 1

There is a phrase which appears many times in the Bible and it has a quaint ring to it; it is “the ends of the earth.” The question is what and where are they? – especially given the earth is round!

So Where are the Ends of the Earth and What are they like?

Are we given any indication about where these mysterious ends are? By searching various Bible passages we can indeed find some clues about the Ends of the Earth. For starters, God defines where the ends of the earth are in His challenge to Job:

Parihaka continues to Prophesy

On the morning of Sunday 12 September 2010 God showed me a vision of a greenstone mere. He asked me what it was and I said it was a mere. “Keep going,” He said. I said it was a treasure. “Keep going,” He said. I said it was also a weapon. “Good,” He said.

God told me the mere was a picture of Maori, that Maori were His treasure, a people He held in His hand like a mere. And they were not just a treasure but also a mighty weapon in the hand of God.
