This is the second section of Daniel, dealing with his visions and dreams. Notice a similar vision of God as Ezekiel. Notice too that the Apostle John uses verses 9, 10 in Revelation 4. You will see other verses as well. Whose kingdom will last?
* Mighty God, thank You for Your word to us. Please write it on our hearts today.
“… And behold, with the clouds of heaven, there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.”
What a vision this is, Daniel sees Jesus! Hundreds of years before our Saviour was born on earth, here He is!
The Son being presented to the Father.
In the new testament book, the last book, Revelation chapter 1 we read of John’s vision,
“Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like the son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest.”
Jesus called Himself the Son of Man. _THE_ Son of Man. He knew Daniel’s vision, and He spoke with John in a similar vision. He made and staked His claim as THE SON OF MAN.
We read on in Revelation,
“In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.”
Our King shines like the sun – HE IS LIGHT!
And our King, His weapon is the same as what is given to us. God’s word. The two-edged sword, our one offensive weapon.
Let us be people of His Word!
* Father God,
We come before You Lord, please humble us today and onwards.
Please put within us and grow a desire for Your word.
That we might be a people of obedience to You, for You have saved us.
What else have we to do Lord? Who else have we to go to, for You have the words of eternal life!
