SAA Notes

The Messiah of 9:25 is revealed to Daniel in all His glory – the One who looked like a man, and who became man. The Apostle John uses this picture in Revelation 1 – Jesus is revealed as God’s Christ. What does the Lord’s touch do for Daniel? Verse 19.

SJA Notes

* Dear Lord God, please open our ears and eyes, our hearts and minds, to what Your word tells us today.

“O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you.”

Here we see Jesus!

He is clothed in linen, a belt of fine fold, a body like beryl stone and a face like lightning. His eyes are flaming torches, his arms and legs burnished bronze. The sound of His words are like that of a multitude.

John saw the same vision of Jesus, as we read in Revelation chapter 1,

“His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters.”

This is God in the person of the son, our King Jesus, the Lord’s Christ in truth.

Daniel meets his Saviour, and what a word of encouraged Jesus has for him!

“O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you.”

Jesus meets us too, speaks to us today. The Son of Man who became man and went to the cross, the curse placed upon Him for our sin.

Let us stand upright, humble ourselves before our God and set our hearts to understand His world.

Listen to Jesus today.

“O man greatly loved, fear not, peace be with you; be strong and of good courage.”

Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

* Father God,

Thank You for Jesus, the sacrificial lamb slain from before the foundation of the world.

Thank You that in Him we are GREATLY LOVED.

Amen.
