Daniel 7:9-28 "As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire...
think about it.
Who did Daniel see on the throne (7:9) and who came before him (7:13-14)? What hope and promises do you find here for those who belong to God?
End times in the Old Testament? Yep. Daniel's dream in Daniel chapter 7 is like a sneak peak, a little overview if you will, of what's to come in Revelation. So you can consider this prep work as we gear up to really jump into the Book of Revelation next week on P4 and Back to the Bible.
Now I'm a firm believer that God doesn't put things in His Word just so we can have head knowledge. He puts things before us so we can draw on them and put them to use as we live for Him. So how can we draw on and use Daniel's vision and its interpretation in our lives today? I know, this is tough, but it's a question we'll need to keep before us as we work through Revelation. The temptation will be to let ourselves get caught up in all the details and the goings on and not step back and consider why it matters for us to know this information and what we should do with it.
