Daily Devotional

by Larry Stockstill

Certain signs indicate to us that someone has truly been born again. The first sign is victory over areas of habitual sin: "Those who have been born into God's family do not sin, because God's life is in them. So they can't keep on sinning, because they have been born of God" (1 John 3:9). True conversion does not mean sinless perfection. Rather, it means that a person has forsaken the habitual sins that once enslaved him.

The second sign of true conversion is love for one's brothers: "If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to eternal life. But a person who has no love is still dead" (v. 14). When we come to Christ, gone are all attitudes of hatred and prejudice.

The third sign of genuine conversion is generosity. Giving is directly connected to love, because love always manifests itself in giving. First John 3:17 tells us, "But if anyone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need and refuses to help-how can God's love be in that person?" A hilarious, cheerful, sharing spirit is physical evidence of the new birth.

A final sign of the new birth is confidence before God for the things requested in prayer (vv. 21-22). The believer does not display a shy, hesitant faith, but a bold, confident position in grace.

Follow these four signs-they are sure to lead you to true believers!

Daniel 11:2-35

The Kings of the South and the North

“Now then, I tell you the truth:Da 10:21 Three more kings will arise in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece.S Da 10:20Then a mighty king will arise, who will rule with great power and do as he pleases.S Da 8:4, 21After he has arisen, his empire will be broken up and parceled out toward the four winds of heaven.S Da 7:2; 8:22 It will not go to his descendants, nor will it have the power he exercised, because his empire will be uprootedS Jer 42:10 and given to others.

“The king of the South will become strong, but one of his commanders will become even stronger than he and will rule his own kingdom with great power.After some years, they will become allies. The daughter of the king of the South will go to the king of the North to make an alliance, but she will not retain her power, and he and his powerOr offspring will not last. In those days she will be betrayed, together with her royal escort and her fatherOr child (see Vulgate and Syriac) and the one who supported her.

“One from her family line will arise to take her place. He will attack the forces of the king of the Northver 6 and enter his fortress; he will fight against them and be victorious.He will also seize their gods,Isa 37:19; S 46:1-2 their metal images and their valuable articles of silver and gold and carry them off to Egypt.Jer 43:12 For some years he will leave the king of the North alone.Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South but will retreat to his own country.10 His sons will prepare for war and assemble a great army, which will sweep on like an irresistible floodIsa 8:8; Jer 46:8; S Da 9:26 and carry the battle as far as his fortress.

11 “Then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North, who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated.Da 8:7-812 When the army is carried off, the king of the South will be filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands, yet he will not remain triumphant.13 For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a huge army fully equipped.

14 “In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success.15 Then the king of the North will come and build up siege rampsS Eze 4:2 and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand.16 The invader will do as he pleases;S Da 8:4 no one will be able to stand against him.S Jos 1:5; S Da 8:7 He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it.S Da 8:917 He will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South. And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plansOr but she will not succeedS Ps 20:4 or help him.18 Then he will turn his attention to the coastlandsS Isa 66:19; S Jer 25:22 and will take many of them, but a commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him.Hos 12:1419 After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own country but will stumble and fall,S Ps 27:2; S 46:2 to be seen no more.S Ps 37:36; S Eze 26:21

20 “His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor.Isa 60:17 In a few years, however, he will be destroyed, yet not in anger or in battle.

21 “He will be succeeded by a contemptibleDa 4:17 person who has not been given the honor of royalty.S Da 8:25 He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue.22 Then an overwhelming army will be swept awayS Isa 28:15 before him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed.Da 8:10-1123 After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully,Da 8:25 and with only a few people he will rise to power.24 When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers.Ne 9:25 He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.

25 “With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South. The king of the South will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him.26 Those who eat from the king’s provisions will try to destroy him; his army will be swept away, and many will fall in battle.27 The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil,Ps 64:6 will sit at the same table and liePs 12:2; Jer 9:5 to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time.Hab 2:328 The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country.

29 “At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before.30 Ships of the western coastlandsS Ge 10:4 will oppose him, and he will lose heart.S 1Sa 17:32 Then he will turn back and vent his furyS Job 15:13 against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant.

31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice.Hos 3:4 Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.S Jer 19:4; Da 8:11-13; S 9:27; Mt 24:15*; Mk 13:14*32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resistMic 5:7-9 him.

33 “Those who are wise will instructDa 12:3; Mal 2:7 many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered.Mt 24:9; Jn 16:2; Heb 11:32-3834 When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincereMt 7:15; Ro 16:18 will join them.35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined,S Job 28:1; S Ps 78:38; S Isa 48:10; Da 12:10; Zec 13:9; Jn 15:2 purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.

Kings of the South and North

“Now then, I will reveal the truth to you. Three more Persian kings will reign, to be succeeded by a fourth, far richer than the others. He will use his wealth to stir up everyone to fight against the kingdom of Greece.Hebrew of Javan.

“Then a mighty king will rise to power who will rule with great authority and accomplish everything he sets out to do.But at the height of his power, his kingdom will be broken apart and divided into four parts. It will not be ruled by the king’s descendants, nor will the kingdom hold the authority it once had. For his empire will be uprooted and given to others.

“The king of the south will increase in power, but one of his own officials will become more powerful than he and will rule his kingdom with great strength.

“Some years later an alliance will be formed between the king of the north and the king of the south. The daughter of the king of the south will be given in marriage to the king of the north to secure the alliance, but she will lose her influence over him, and so will her father. She will be abandoned along with her supporters.But when one of her relativesHebrew a branch from her roots. becomes king of the south, he will raise an army and enter the fortress of the king of the north and defeat him.When he returns to Egypt, he will carry back their idols with him, along with priceless articles of gold and silver. For some years afterward he will leave the king of the north alone.

“Later the king of the north will invade the realm of the king of the south but will soon return to his own land.10 However, the sons of the king of the north will assemble a mighty army that will advance like a flood and carry the battle as far as the enemy’s fortress.

11 “Then, in a rage, the king of the south will rally against the vast forces assembled by the king of the north and will defeat them.12 After the enemy army is swept away, the king of the south will be filled with pride and will execute many thousands of his enemies. But his success will be short lived.

13 “A few years later the king of the north will return with a fully equipped army far greater than before.14 At that time there will be a general uprising against the king of the south. Violent men among your own people will join them in fulfillment of this vision, but they will not succeed.15 Then the king of the north will come and lay siege to a fortified city and capture it. The best troops of the south will not be able to stand in the face of the onslaught.

16 “The king of the north will march onward unopposed; none will be able to stop him. He will pause in the glorious land of Israel,Hebrew the glorious land. intent on destroying it.17 He will make plans to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will form an alliance with the king of the south. He will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom from within, but his plan will fail.

18 “After this, he will turn his attention to the coastland and conquer many cities. But a commander from another land will put an end to his insolence and cause him to retreat in shame.19 He will take refuge in his own fortresses but will stumble and fall and be seen no more.

20 “His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. But after a very brief reign, he will die, though not from anger or in battle.

21 “The next to come to power will be a despicable man who is not in line for royal succession. He will slip in when least expected and take over the kingdom by flattery and intrigue.22 Before him great armies will be swept away, including a covenant prince.23 With deceitful promises, he will make various alliances. He will become strong despite having only a handful of followers.24 Without warning he will enter the richest areas of the land. Then he will distribute among his followers the plunder and wealth of the rich—something his predecessors had never done. He will plot the overthrow of strongholds, but this will last for only a short while.

25 “Then he will stir up his courage and raise a great army against the king of the south. The king of the south will go to battle with a mighty army, but to no avail, for there will be plots against him.26 His own household will cause his downfall. His army will be swept away, and many will be killed.27 Seeking nothing but each other’s harm, these kings will plot against each other at the conference table, attempting to deceive each other. But it will make no difference, for the end will come at the appointed time.

28 “The king of the north will then return home with great riches. On the way he will set himself against the people of the holy covenant, doing much damage before continuing his journey.

29 “Then at the appointed time he will once again invade the south, but this time the result will be different.30 For warships from western coastlandsHebrew from Kittim. will scare him off, and he will withdraw and return home. But he will vent his anger against the people of the holy covenant and reward those who forsake the covenant.

31 “His army will take over the Temple fortress, pollute the sanctuary, put a stop to the daily sacrifices, and set up the sacrilegious object that causes desecration.Hebrew the abomination of desolation.32 He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him.

33 “Wise leaders will give instruction to many, but these teachers will die by fire and sword, or they will be jailed and robbed.34 During these persecutions, little help will arrive, and many who join them will not be sincere.35 And some of the wise will fall victim to persecution. In this way, they will be refined and cleansed and made pure until the time of the end, for the appointed time is still to come.

And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.

But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:

And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.

So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.

10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress.

11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches.

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.

15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.

19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.

20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.

26 Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.

27 And both of these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.

30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

1 John 3:7-24

Dear children,S 1Jn 2:1 do not let anyone lead you astray.1Jn 2:26 The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.1Jn 2:29The one who does what is sinful is of the devil,ver 10; Jn 8:44 because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of GodS Mt 4:3 appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.Heb 2:14No one who is born of GodS Jn 1:13 will continue to sin,ver 6; Ps 119:3; 1Jn 5:18 because God’s seed1Pe 1:23 remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.10 This is how we know who the children of Godver 1, 2; S Jn 1:12 are and who the children of the devilver 8 are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love1Jn 4:8 their brother and sister.S 1Jn 2:9

More on Love and Hatred

11 For this is the message you heard1Jn 1:5 from the beginning:S 1Jn 2:7 We should love one another.Jn 13:34, 35; 15:12; 1Jn 4:7, 11, 21; 2Jn 512 Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil oneS Mt 5:37 and murdered his brother.Ge 4:8 And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous.Ps 38:20; Pr 29:1013 Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters,The Greek word for brothers and sisters (adelphoi) refers here to believers, both men and women, as part of God’s family; also in verse 16. if the world hates you.Jn 15:18, 19; 17:1414 We know that we have passed from death to life,Jn 5:24 because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death.S 1Jn 2:915 Anyone who hates a brother or sisterS 1Jn 2:9 is a murderer,Mt 5:21, 22; Jn 8:44 and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.Gal 5:20, 21; Rev 21:8

16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.Jn 10:11 And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.Jn 15:13; Php 2:17; 1Th 2:817 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them,Dt 15:7, 8; Jas 2:15, 16 how can the love of God be in that person?1Jn 4:2018 Dear children,S 1Jn 2:1 let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.Eze 33:31; Ro 12:9

19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence:20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.21 Dear friends,S 1Co 10:14 if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before GodS Eph 3:12; 1Jn 5:1422 and receive from him anything we ask,S Mt 7:7 because we keep his commandsS Jn 14:15 and do what pleases him.Jn 8:29; Heb 13:2123 And this is his command: to believeJn 6:29 in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,S Lk 24:47; Jn 1:12; 3:18; 20:31; 1Co 6:11; 1Jn 5:13 and to love one another as he commanded us.S Jn 13:3424 The one who keeps God’s commands1Jn 2:3 lives in him,1Jn 2:6; 4:15 and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.1Th 4:8; 1Jn 4:13

Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous.But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s lifeGreek because his seed. is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believersGreek does not love his brother. does not belong to God.

Love One Another

11 This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another.12 We must not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because Cain had been doing what was evil, and his brother had been doing what was righteous.13 So don’t be surprised, dear brothers and sisters,Greek brothers. if the world hates you.

14 If we love our brothers and sisters who are believers,Greek the brothers; similarly in 3:16. it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead.15 Anyone who hates another brother or sisterGreek hates his brother. is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.

16 We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.17 If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sisterGreek sees his brother. in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?

18 Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.19 Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.20 Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.

21 Dear friends, if we don’t feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence.22 And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey him and do the things that please him.

23 And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us.24 Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

Psalm 122:1-9

Psalm 122

A song of ascents. Of David.

I rejoiced with those who said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

Our feet are standing

in your gates, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built like a city

that is closely compacted together.

That is where the tribes go up—

the tribes of the Lord

to praise the name of the Lord

according to the statute given to Israel.

There stand the thrones for judgment,

the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who loveS Ps 26:8 you be secure.

May there be peaceS 1Sa 25:6 within your walls

and security within your citadels.S Ps 48:3

For the sake of my family and friends,

I will say, “Peace be within you.”

For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,

I will seek your prosperity.Ps 128:5

Psalm 122

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

And now here we are,

standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is a well-built city;

its seamless walls cannot be breached.

All the tribes of Israel—the Lord’s people—

make their pilgrimage here.

They come to give thanks to the name of the Lord,

as the law requires of Israel.

Here stand the thrones where judgment is given,

the thrones of the dynasty of David.

Pray for peace in Jerusalem.

May all who love this city prosper.

O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls

and prosperity in your palaces.

For the sake of my family and friends, I will say,

“May you have peace.”

For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,

I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.

122 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.

Proverbs 29:1

29 Whoever remains stiff-neckedS Ex 32:9; S Dt 9:27 after many rebukes

will suddenly be destroyedJer 19:15; 36:31; Hab 2:7—without remedy.S 2Ch 36:16; Pr 6:15

29 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
