9I kept looking until thrones were placed [for the assessors with the Judge], and the Ancient of Days [God, the eternal Father] took His seat, Whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame; its wheels were burning fire. 10A stream of fire came forth from before Him; a thousand thousands ministered to Him and ten thousand times ten thousand rose up and stood before Him; the Judge was seated [the court was in session] and the books were opened. Daniel 7:9-10 (AMPC)
He’s the beginning of all beginnings. Before everything else was He was. He has always been I am. Before time was He was. Since He brought time into existence He lives outside of time and therefore cannot be defined or dictated to by time. He is the Eternal God in whom dwells the eternities of the eternities and who inhabits the eternities of the eternities. He was and is and is to come. He is the Ancient of days. Before days were He was. Since He created days He lives beyond the reach of days, He cannot be described by days. There’s no counting of the number of the days of His existence, that’s why He’s called the Ancient of days.
This dateless, long lived One is our Everlasting Father. We come from Him and we live in Him. He’s our endless source and sufficiency.
Because we are the offspring of the Ancient of days we can expect to live full, fruitful, and fulfilled days in this life here on earth.
Hear what the Ancient of days affirms to all of us:
Exodus 23:26 (AMPC) None shall lose her young by miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.
No barrenness in your spirit and mind – that means creativity, invention and resourcefulness.
No barrenness in your body – that’s healing, health, strength, virility and fertility.
No barrenness in your land, your fields, your flocks, your job, your business, your ministry – that means blessing, productivity, profitableness and success.
When we reverence and worship the Ancient of days we attain wisdom which multiplies our days and increases the years of our life.
Proverbs 9:10-11 (AMPC) The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding. For by me [Wisdom from God] your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.
Get acquainted with the Ancient of days, enjoy length of days, and get satisfied with fullness of life.
