Well, it was actually about 2.30 am, because I got up to check. I was sleeping and heard a bar of beautiful, beautiful music suspended next to my bed, about ear  level. It was clean, pure and quite distinct. I awoke and wondered if  my cellphone had rung, but no, my cell has a totally different sound.  I got up to check anyway and heard, “that’s Gabriel”.  I wondered if the rapture had taken place. LOL.

I went back to bed and later heard another bar of  beautiful, beautiful music that was, like the first, nothing I had ever heard on earth.  Thanks for sharing heaven’s music with me, Chief Prince Gabriel!

I wrote previously that I met Lord Jesus at a ferry berth.  He had a laptop computer and opened it up to do some work. I was reminded about several features:

  1. He tapped on the keyboard quickly and several screens came up simultaneously
  2. I could see that He had several pages (web pages open). However, there were no boxes at the upper right hand corner to allow any one to minimize, restore down and/or close these pages
  3. Furthermore, the pages were layered over each other and I could see about a 4mm bar at the top of each which indicated that each was a new page.
  4. I am not sure exactly how He did it, but He opened up a page with a picture of a Himself.  When He did so, I could see that this page  was surrounded by pictures from other pages.

Everything happened very quickly. The images were extremely lifelike and the colors real. I was reminded about this a few nights ago and asked to write about it.

Blessings!

Daniel referred to himself as Archangel Gabriel’s servant December 7, 2009

I wrote in the previous post that Prophet Daniel addressed Chief Prince Gabriel as “Lord”, using the Hebrew word ‘adown.  When used in reference to heavenly inhabitants, this noun addressed members of the God family. The Lord also drew to my attention that Daniel referred to himself as a servant:

O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength

For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? (Dan 10: 16, 17)

“Ebed (H 5650) is the word that Daniel used. It is found seven times in the Hebrew  and interestingly, Daniel is the only person who apparently used that word  (blueletterbible.org).  He used ‘ebed twice when asking the chief eunuch in Babylon to allow himself and his three companions to eat vegetables instead of the king’s meat.  The other references to ‘ebed (apart from Daniel 10) are found four other times in Daniel 9 where the Prophet referred in his intercessions to the ancient Prophets and Moses as servants of the Lord.

Now, it is clear that Daniel deliberately used the same word ‘ebed because he was acknowledging Chief Prince Gabriel’s status. Twin this with the usage of ‘adown and you will discover the secret.

Prophet Daniel used “adown” when he called Prince Gabriel Lord December 3, 2009

1. Introduction

I ended the previous post  by saying that  ’Adown is the Hebrew word that Daniel used in the text when referring to the Chief Prince Gabriel as “Lord”:

“then I opened  my mouth, and spake , and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord (‘adown) (Dan 10: 16)

For how can the servant of this my lord (‘adown)  talk with this my lord (‘adown)? (Dan 10: 17)

I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord (‘adown) speak; for thou hast strengthened me (Dan 10: 19)

Why did Daniel refer to Chief Prince Gabriel as Lord/‘adown?  Here is what I found  when I examined the usage of the word.  

2.  ‘Adown was used as a form of  respect when addressing other people in their various leadership roles. For example:

  • Sarah called Abraham her “Lord” (Gen 18: 12)
  • Lot used in when addressing the members of the God family who had entered Sodom, although he did not know who they were (Gen 19: 2, 8)
  • the children of  Heth used the term to address Abraham, recognizing him as a “mighty Prince” (Gen  23: 3-20).
  • the english word “master” is used for ‘adown when describing the interaction between Abraham and his servant (Gen 24: 9-14).
  • Rebekkah again used ‘adown when speaking to Abraham’ s servant as a form of respect (Gen 24: 18)
  • Jacob used it when addressing or referring to his brother Esau (Gen 32: 4,5,18)
  • Pothipar was referred to as Joseph’s lord (Gen 39: 3, 7, 16 etc)
  • Joshua referred to Moses as “my lord Moses” (Num 11: 28)
  • Rulers such as Pharoah and others were referred to as lord/’adown (Judges 3: 25, Judges 4: 18)

3. Humans used the word ‘adown to refer to  members of the God family, recognizing God as  Lord of lords, ruler of heaven and earth:

  • Prior to passing over Jordan, Joshua worshipped God as the Lord of all the earth. For example, he told Israel that, “the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan” (Johsua 3: 11, 13)
  • Joshua referred to the Captain of the host as “my lord” (Josh 5: 14). I ‘ve written before about this, showing that Joshua knew that he was visited by a member of the God family because he fell on his face and worshipped and was told to take off his shoes  since the place where he stood was holy.  This is similar to Moses’ experience in Ex 3. When the mantle is  passed on to another individual, the God family will reproduce in him or her the same kind of visitation that the forerunner experienced.
  • Gideon used ‘adown when referring to the angel of the Lord, who was really one of the members of the God family. Read the text carefully and you will see this (Judges 6: 11-14)
  • Nehemiah called God by the name ‘adown (Neh 8: 10)
  • When worshipping God, whose name alone is excellent in all the earth, David in Psalm 8, referred to God  as ‘adown  (Ps 8: 1, 9)
  • The psalmists referred to God as ‘adown in the Psalms when worshipping the great Lord of the earth (Ps 110: 1; 114: 7;  135: 5; 136: 3; 147:5)
  • Prophet Isaiah referred to God as ‘adown when extolling Him as the Lord, the Lord of hosts (Isa 1: 24;   3: 1;   10: 16;  10: 33;  19: 4;   37: 4; 51: 22)
  • It is important to note that when Prophet Isaiah referred to God as the Lord (adown), he twinned the term with Lord (Yĕhovah/H3068) for greater emphasis   (http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?strongs=H113&t=KJV&page=11    http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H3068&t=KJV)
  • Prophets Micah, Zechariah and Malachi  also referred to God as ‘adown  (Micah 4: 13; Zech 4: 14; Zech 6: 5; Mal 3: 1)

4. Conclusion

When used in reference to heavenly inhabitants, the term “Adown or Lord refers directly to GOD as the ruler of heaven and earth, His excellent name, Lord of hosts and to members of the God family.

Prophet Daniel called Archangel Gabriel “my Lord” December 2, 2009

1. Introduction

Chief Prince Gabriel appeared to the Prophet Daniel on the 3rd day following a 21 day fast.  Although Prophet Daniel did not refer to Him by name, I infer that the man who appeared in the vision Prince Gabriel.  Maybe the Prophet did not name Him because of the splendour and glory of His  outfit:

I looked up and saw a man dressed in linen clothing, with a belt of pure gold around his waist.

His body looked like a dazzling gem. From his face came flashes like lightning, and his eyes were like flaming torches. His arms and feet shone like polished bronze, and his voice was like the roaring of a vast multitude of people.

I, Daniel, am the only one who saw this vision. The men with me saw nothing, but they were suddenly terrified and ran away to hide.

So I was left there all alone to watch this amazing vision. My strength left me, my face grew deathly pale, and I felt very weak

When I heard him speak, I fainted and lay there with my face to the ground (Dan 10: 5-9).

2. There are similarities between this vision and others in which Chief Prince Gabriel had appeared to the Prophet Daniel:

  1. He appeared to Daniel in response to intensive confession, prayers and fasting.  In Dan 8:   ,  He appeared at the time of the evening oblation or sacrifice, which is symbolic of  confession, prayer and  worship in scripture. He also appeared to Zechariah at the time he offered sacrifices in the temple (Lk 1:             ). God responds to our sincere prayers, confession and worship.
  2. His presence was always so overwhelming that Prophet Daniel fell on his face to the ground.
  3. Chief Prince Gabriel, as usual,  lifted Daniel to his hands and knees, a position of worship in which he was less helpless.  In this position, they could look at each other directly,  a sign of friendship and communication.
  4. Chief Prince Gabriel was the one assigned to directly respond to Daniel’s prayer, just as at other times
  5. Chief Prince Gabriel always came to instruct Daniel in future events and their meanings (Dan 10: 12, 14)

It is rather amusing that the glory, power and visage of the heavenly visitor was so overwhelming  that the men around Daniel became fearful and fled, reminding me of Rev 20 :11 when Apostle John saw:

” a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”

Apostle John also said that  the voice of the Lord Jesus sounded great, like a trumpet (Rev 1: 10).  Again, this Apostle fell down at the feet of the Lord Jesus like a dead man (Rev 1:  17).  No other heavenly inhabitants produced this kind of response in scripture.

3. Daniel called Chief Prince Gabriel “my Lord”:

While he was speaking to me, I looked down at the ground, unable to say a word.

Then the one who looked like a man  touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing in front of me, “I am terrified by the vision I have seen, my lord, and I am very weak. How can someone like me, your servant, talk to you, my lord? My strength is gone, and I can hardly breathe.”

Then the one who looked like a man touched me again, and I felt my strength returning. Don’t be afraid,” he said, “for you are deeply loved by God. Be at peace; take heart and be strong!” As he spoke these words, I suddenly felt stronger and said to him, “Now you may speak, my lord, for you have strengthened me.” (Dan 10: 15-19)

 ‘Adown is the Hebrew word that Daniel used in the text when referring to the Chief as “Lord”.  

4. Daniel referred to himself as a servant of the Lord Gabriel

More to come  on scriptural usage of the word adown!

She had an assignment to curse a Christian believer and sat across from her in the Library.  Suddenly,  she  found herself sliding down rainbows and bouncing on clouds with laughing angels. At the end of the game, she said to herself, “I didn’t know that God was so nice”.

She did not know that the believer had seen her and said, “Gabriel, please play with this witch”.

It was  halloween night 2009 and I heard this conversation taking place in a main street in the city in which I live:

“Worship Jesus”

“No.    Worship satan”

“Worship Jesus!” The first speaker demanded.

“What do you mean, worship Jesus? Worship satan”

“No. Worship Jesus!”

An angel of the Lord appeared and asked, “what did you say?”

The angel then made those occult workers worship Jesus by dancing, clapping and bowing in the streets.  I was laughing so hard. At the end I heard those people tell each other what an embarrassing experience that was.

Worship Jesus!
