This is a series from Dr. Aikens entitled “Revelatory Words and Concepts” These revelatory nuggets are curated by Jane Babich from Bootcamp Teachings and Podcasts. These concepts are rooted in Apostle Aikens’s heart toward equipping ministries and ministers for the work of the end times.
Daniel 11:32 (KJV)
The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
In Daniel 11:32, as the battle raged in Daniel’s time, this scripture signifies despite our weakness; we may have shown in not intimately knowing God; He supernaturally invigorates and suddenly strengthens all who turn, rising to the occasion, seeking Him and ready to oppose all coming against Him in us. And in that invigoration and strength from God, we can do exploits.
An exploit is a bold and daring feat that results in “unfolding” results to benefit others and capture those attempting to overtake or assault those we are assigned to by our authority.
Just as in Judges 6:12, we can only be men of valor or do exploits if God empowers us. We can not do it on our own. Both walking in valor or doing exploits means we are full of courage to face any danger God sends us unto.
That qualifier to be strengthened to do so must be part of His small remnant that come what may; will remain faithful to His ways. We refuse to be compromised by engaging in deceitful tactics or shadiness He sees as but abominable practices men require.
The conventional Hebrew of exploits means more of a force, especially of an army, but can also mean a force of might, power, riches, or virtue, depended on what God needs for you to have to overcome. So remember this beloved that God is in control of what we need.
Zechariah 4:6 (ESV)
Then he said to me (or you), “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel (fill in your name): Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.
Our doing exploits has integrity, valor, prowess, readiness to perform illustrious deeds in His name in the time of any battle; on any front be it physically, emotionally, financially, socially, or spiritually; all ways in which God is glorified.
Exploits mean we need:
- Integrity: Proverbs 11:3-The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
- Valor: is defined as the strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with bravery.
- Prowess: is seen as extraordinary ability or skill.
- Readiness: 2 Timothy 4:2-preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
This means that because He enables us, we can do exploits that led us to an upright life and a mind and spirit of bravery with extraordinary ability that is ready in season or out of season full of an ability to complete all things with patience.
Yet our but God is yes, men judge our strength and actions by the circumstance of our outward appearances. But know and remember; the Lord looks within hearts to see so know us who are His. He sees those who have hearts perfect towards or after His; He always shows Himself strong on behalf of; always.
