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?

Devotional

…And the Stone that smote the image became a great mountain or rock and filled the whole earth.
Daniel 2:35 AMP

The term ‘mountain’ in scripture stands for a kingdom or a dominion. The ‘Precious Cornerstone’ will not only rule the earth but will fill the earth with Himself. “The whole earth will be filled with His glory” (Ps. 72:19).

The Stone and the Kingdom are one. The Stone is the indestructible, immovable, transcendent Son of God. The Kingdom that will fill the earth is His reign as King. The cornerstone is the foundation rock that sets and determines the stability and trueness of a structure. Christ is the foundation of the believer and the Church.

For thus it stands in Scripture: Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen (honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him [who adheres to, trusts in and relies on Him] shall never be disappointed or put to shame.
1 Peter 2:7 AMP

It “stands in Scripture.” The Cornerstone is mentioned 10 times in the Bible, seven of which are in the New Testament. We need in this hour to know our Lord as the Stone who is coming. We need to believe in and rest on…the Precious Cornerstone.

The Stone is either collapse or stability, depending on our response to Him (reading Mt. 21:42; Mk. 2:10; Lk. 40:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Cor 3:11; Eph. 2:20; 1 Peter 2:6).
