Every kingdom crumbles… except the kingdom of God.
The book of Daniel opens with King Nebuchadnezzar laying siege to Jerusalem and overpowering Israel. God’s people are defeated, humiliated, and taken away into exile. But the big message of Daniel is that how things seem is not how things are. God is still in control. God reigns over all cultures, all kingdoms, all peoples. Across all of history God has been working to set up his everlasting kingdom – the kingdom where King Jesus reigns forever. All kingdoms crumble, except the Kingdom of God.
I’m looking forward to working through the book of Daniel and learning more about the Most High God and His kingdom that lasts forever.
