About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series
Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?
Daniel is a picture of the life of the believer in the “last days” – a symbol of the times and circumstances that occurred then and that will occur again many centuries later, even now unfolding.
There is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and He made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days (Daniel 2:45).
God in heaven raises kings and takes them down. To this heathen king, God reveals history.
Why? God set him in place. He is God’s instrument.
How? God is God!
For Daniel, God is sovereign – over tyranny, destruction, death and bondage. To believe God is God in a time of great distress is to enter His safety. But it is a great challenge to believe Him. This goes against our human drive to make God into our image and to sit in His chair to judge Him!
