The SHEPHERD | Danilo Q. Junco

This is now the focal point of all the dreams and visions of Daniel while being in exile of the empires of Babylon and Medes-Persia serving four kings Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar; Cyrus and Darius, respectively. This is about the seventy (70) weeks that God revealed to Daniel through Angel Gabriel, God’s messenger about the future of the national Israel or the Jews, the city of Jerusalem and all nations in general.


In spite of Daniel’s impeccable life and testimony, Daniel’s intercession and supplication did not base on his righteousness but on the mercy of God.
It is important to note that fervent prayer with fasting is effective to get an answer from God and this has been practiced by His people in the past and even now.


This time Daniel discovers the writing of Jeremiah that after 70 years of captivity in Babylon, the desolation of Israel has ended and God had promised that the exiled Jewish people would be brought back to their homeland Israel and bless them.


In turn, Daniel prays and fasts to reinforce God’s vow to let the Jews to go back to Israel after staying in Babylon for 70 years. Indeed, God heard and answered Daniel’s intercession and supplication by sending His messenger-angel Gabriel but he was blocked by the rebellious angel under Satan’s domain called the “Prince of Persia” in the heavenly realm to guard its entire territory and prevent God’s purposes to the sinful people of Persia.


There was an ongoing fight between Gabriel and Satan’s rebellious angel and it took him 21 days to overcome the evil angel with the help of the archangel Michael, an angel designated by God to watch over Israel.
