Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from an Unknown Author. He said: "Fasting casts out devils, chases away demons, and breaks the gates of hell like nothing else can. When we are made physically weak by fasting, the power of God is made powerful in our lives."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "WHAT IS THE DANIEL FAST?" from Susan Gregory, author of the bestselling book titled "The Daniel Fast"
The Daniel Fast is a biblically based partial fast. It is a method of fasting that men, women and young people all over the world are using as they enter into the spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting.
There are two anchoring scriptures for the Daniel Fast. In Daniel 1 the Prophet ate only vegetables (that would have included fruits) and drank only water. So from these scriptures we get two of the guidelines for the fast:
1. Only fruits and vegetables
2. Only water for a beverage
Then in Daniel 10 we read that the Prophet ate no meat nor any precious breads or foods and he drank no wine for 21 days. So from this scripture, we get a third guideline: No sweeteners and no breads
Another important guideline is drawn from Jewish fasting principles, where no leaven is used during the fast. So that's why yeast, baking powder and the like are not allowed on the Daniel Fast.
Finally, with these puzzle pieces, we conclude that no artificial or processed foods nor any chemicals are allowed on the Daniel Fast. When asked about the eating plan on the Daniel Fast, I often say it is a "vegan diet with even more restrictions." So, I would encourage you to read the ingredients on labels of prepared foods to make sure they only include Daniel Fast friendly ingredients.
In today's society, so many want to live the fast life, but claim they are ready to settle down. Times have definitely changed, and its a new epidemic going on. Back in the day people made their relationship/marriage work, and when it wasn't working; you had people there to support you, and help get you through those trying times. Now, people are quickly to tell you to get out of the situation without knowing all of the details. In this segment, you will have the opportunity to shed some light on this controversial topic, but first you will have the opportunity to speak with Author/Musician Louie Versace; about his endeavors, and take a journey into his world. We hope to see everyone in the playhouse; where only the grown, and sexxy play.
Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from James Hudson Taylor. He said: "In Shansi, I found Chinese Christians who were accustomed to spend time in fasting and prayer. They recognized that this fasting, which so many dislike, which requires faith in God, since it makes one feel weak and poorly, is really a Divinely appointed means of grace. Perhaps the greatest hindrance to our work is our own imagined strength; and in fasting we learn what poor, weak creatures we are - dependent on a meal of meat for the little strength which we are so apt to lean upon."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST PRESCRIPTION: BE SPECIFIC" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
Daniel was not vague in his objection to the Babylonian diet. He defined the problem immediately, and had a clear solution to suggest to the king's servants. Although it was an act that had social and political implications and may well have cost him his life, Daniel was specific about his plan.
With so much at stake, why did Daniel reject the delicacies offered by the king? Three possibilities have been suggested: (1) The king's food was against Jewish dietary laws; (2) Daniel and his three friends had vows against partaking of the alcohol (wine) that was included; and (3) The king's food had been offered to foreign idols/demons.
The exact reason Daniel refused to eat the king's meat is not clear. Two principles, however, are evident: (1) Daniel felt it was a religious test of his faith (he "would not defile himself"); (2) Daniel had a desire for a strong physical body in which to serve the Lord.

Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Arthur Wallis. He said: "Fasting is important, more important perhaps, than many of us have supposed. When exercised with a pure heart and a right motive, fasting may provide us with a key to unlock doors where other keys have failed; a window opening up new horizons in the unseen world; a spiritual weapon of God's provision, mighty, to the pulling down of strongholds."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST: A BRIEF BACKGROUND" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
The Hebrew, Daniel, had been taken into captivity by the Babylonian army as a young man, and transported to the city of Babylon. He and his three friends from Judea were being trained as diplomats/bureaucrats to serve in the Babylonian government. It was probably King Nebuchadnezzar's plan to have them carry out his administrative policies over the Jewish remnant.
The plan included giving the four Hebrews the finest delicacies and wine from the king's own provisions according to Daniel 1:5. But for reasons we will discuss later, such food was not acceptable to the Hebrews. So Daniel proposed to the king's servants that they be allowed to "fast" from the king's sumptuous fare, and to eat only vegetables and drink only water. If, after 10 days, they were not in better health than their Babylonian counterparts, Daniel promised that they could be dealt with as the Babylonian guards wished. (The fact that they were allowed to demonstrate the effectiveness of their vegetarian diet indicated how important Daniel and his three friends were to the Babylonian government.)

Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Edith Schaeffer. She said: "Is fasting ever a bribe to get God to pay more attention to the petitions? No, a thousand times no. It is simply a way to make clear that we sufficiently reverence the amazing opportunity to ask help from the everlasting God, the Creator of the universe, to choose to put everything else aside and concentrate on worshiping, asking forgiveness, and making our requests known-considering His help more important than anything we could do ourselves in our own strength and with our own ideas. "
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST: CURATIVE HEALING" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
God has promised that prescriptive healing can come by faith and prayer. James 5:15 says, "The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up." Faith and prayer must be joined. Faith is an instrument of healing when it is joined to the tool of prayer. Even when you have faith and pray, it is still God who heals, or maintains health. The Daniel Fast rests on a three-platformed foundation: (1) faith, (2) prayer and (3) fasting.
Kevin Romine, a student at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, sat through my course "Spiritual Factors of Church Growth" during the summer of 1994. One of the assignments is to fast for a project, and/or faith event. Kevin had injured his back delivering packages while working to put himself through seminary. He was not only disabled, but he was also in intense pain. Often he had to stand in my classroom because of back pain.
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST: PREVENTIVE HEALING" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
God has promised, "Is not this the fast that I have chosen...[that] your healing shall spring forth speedily". When we begin fasting and praying for physical health and healing, we must realize that it is God who heals. His name Jehovah Rapha means, "I am the Lord who heals you".
We enter the Daniel Fast for two physical reasons: (1) as therapy when we are sick and need healing, or (2) as prevention to keep us from becoming sick or getting a disease.
In the setting of Exodus 15, the Lord was promising preventive healing. He promised His divine protection to keep his people from becoming sick, rather than just "prescriptive" healing---removing an illness from them. Exodus 15:26 says, "If you obey me by doing right and by following my laws and teachings, I won't punish you with the diseases I sent on the Egyptians".
Preventive medicine is like the mother who gives her children vitamins and bundles them in warm clothing before sending them off to school in the snow. Curative medicine is like putting the children to bed, providing medicine and rest.
An example of God's preventive healing power is the Old Testament law prohibiting eating blood and animal fat in Leviticus 3:17. Recent medical research seems to show that bacteria and disease reside primarily in blood and fat. God wanted his people to enjoy good health.
Daniel 8:1-27 (KJV)
1 In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.
2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.
3 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.
4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.
5 And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.
6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.
7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
