Bold as Lions: The Final King and Kingdom

Chapters 1-6 in the Book of Daniel are primarily a historical narrative. Beginning with chapter 7, Daniel writes of his God-given vision of the future. This chapter is so significant that it is called a "passage of primary reference," quoted by Jesus Christ as well as the apostles Paul and John. We learn of five earthly kingdoms that are personified by various beasts. The sixth and final kingdom, however, describes God's eternal kingdom ruled by the Son of Man, Jesus Christ. Daniel's vision inspires today's Christ followers to be bold as lions and gentle as lambs.

From Series: "Bold as Lions: The Book of Daniel"

This series explores the narrative of the unlikely hero, Daniel. Even though God's people are in exile because of their unrepentance, the God of Abraham, Jacob and Issac has not given up on them. God uses Daniel and his friends to: (1) Embolden us to stand firm in the face of opposition, especially when the deck is stacked against us; (2) Give hope to His representatives that God is still sovereign over the affairs of the world and will strategically place us to be people of influence; and (3) Reveal that God sovereignly uses powerful kings and kingdoms in his cosmic plans to bring justice and His eternal kingdom. Will we be bold as lions and trust in God's sovereign plan through trouble?
