Week 33 King’s Dominion
Today’s Text: Daniel 7-12
Key Text: Daniel 7:13-14
“I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven, one like a Son of Man was coming, and he came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom that all the peoples, nations, and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.”
Mention “King’s Dominion” in the state in which I live and most people will immediately think you are talking about a popular amusement park.
Daniel’s vision is quite another matter.
It is a dramatic and powerful vision of the Lord’s kingdom which “will not pass away” and “which will not be destroyed.”
Is there anything – anything on the face of this earth – that can boast of such eternal, lasting prominence? No.
Sadly, though, many go about their daily lives barely giving it a passing glance.
Those who would follow Christ should think and act much differently.
I am not talking about going on and on, a “holy roller” who will only attract negative attention from others who fail to understand.
I am talking about simply acknowledging that God’s kingdom is something that is greater than any earthly king can boast – and pay due homage to it.
We have a wonderful opportunity – to be part of that kingdom – through following Christ.
Or, we can make another choice, and ignore God’s reign.
“King’s Dominion” can represent the greatest kingdom of all – or just a bunch of roller coaster rides.
The choice is ours.
