The 11th hour countdown began on 12/11/13. As usual the watchman started Daniel fast, light clear vegetable soup with rice, once daily. He worshipped more by following the worship service recorded from a Christ centered church. Although he hoped to worship like Daniel, three times a day, he could not make it on the first day as he landed himself in supervising the renovation of a house which required to be repaired urgently before the new year arrives! So he was torn between expending much physical energy and staying still before the Lord, being led by the Lord’s Spirit. However, he still received revelation. Much confirmation. Like the following verses he received in the early hours before the Lord, a noisy crowd (three generations of four women of one family) landed on him and the noise level was beyond any natural human tolerance. However, he was not natural. He continued to sit at the low praying table and enjoyed his own solitude with the Lord’s presence. For awhile he enjoyed some relief in the physical realm too when the 71 years old grandma and the 11th years young grand-daughter were racing each other in copying psalm 119!
HERE IS THE MESSAGE FOR THE FIRST DAY OF THE FAST:
MICAH 2:12-13 New Living Translation (NLT) Hope for Restoration
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4-5 NKJV
