Daniel 2:31-45; Psalm – Daniel 3:57-61; Luke 21:5-11
Christ speaks about the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and also warns his followers to guard against antichrist. Do not be anxious about the end of time rather be conscious of having a perfect end. Prepare for a holy death. Avoid distractions; those who claim to know it all, those pretending to be Christ. There is only one Christ and that is Jesus, he has given us the message of salvation and has shown us the way to that salvation. Therefore, do not be distracted.
In the first reading Daniel interprets the vision of King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel predicts that the king’s successors will not be as successful as he, for they will turn from God and so their kingdom and his line will fall. God speaks to us today in different ways but we must not be carried away by all sorts of interpretations. When God speaks the underlining principle is salvation. Ask yourself; ‘where is salvation in my dreams, visions and revelations?’
LET US PRAY
Father in your mercy keep us free from sin today. May we not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But delight in your word. Amen.
