The Willful King

According to Merriam Webster Dictionary the word willful means: obstinately and often perversely self- willed. (A stubborn and willful child)   It’s synonym means, unruly.

What do these words look like and where have we seen them before?

If you have ever met a person that is strong-willed or willful, they almost assuredly always want THEIR way.  When they are told no, when someone speaks out against their idea or desire they become angry. The look on their face expresses it all. When we look at an unruly person, we find someone who is not bound by any laws. They desire to live according to their own will, idea and rules. Many times the unruly thrive on CHANGE. They want to make those changes to fit their agenda and their desires. They reject authority and  scream to be free from laws.  Another words the unruly person could be called (lawless)! The Bible warns of one who is coming that fits that description well. I tell you that he has already appeared on the scene and this willful king is only about to get worse.

“And the king shall do according to his will; he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods. He shall prosper till the indignation is accomplished; for what is determined shall be done. He shall give no heed to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women ; he shall not give heed to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all. He shall honor the god of fortresses [That is, the god of force, of war] instead of these; a god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god; those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price.” (Dan 11:36-39 RSV)

Keep your eyes upward dear Saints! WE have a sure HOPE and VICTORY and His name is JESUS CHRIST!
