The Long Look

Re:Verse passage – Daniel 7:1-28 (day four)

Books have been written and lives have been spent, trying to explain every detail of Daniel’s vision.  Taking a step back to gain a wider perspective, we can make a summary of observations.  Earthly kingdoms will come and go…each new dominion is more evil than the last.  Evil is not static and is never content with the status quo…it continually seeks more violent and repulsive means of rejecting God’s sovereignty.

In Daniel’s vision, we see that God (Ancient of Days) is still on His throne…always has been.  His dominion…His sovereignty is never challenged.  By His permission, other kingdoms exist.  Ultimately, it is the kingdom of His Son that will be established for all eternity.  All other kingdoms are temporary.

God has opened up the divine playbook.  Those who follow Him will not be devoured…those who invest their lives in the eternal will receive a crown of glory.  Is your life invested in Christ? Is your eye on the eternal?
