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?
The Stone and the Kingdom are one and the same. It is the Kingdom of Christ, and we are built on the Cornerstone only insofar as we are dwelling in the Kingdom of God!
In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.
Inasmuch as you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold, the great God has make known to the king what will take place in the future; so the dream is true and interpretation is trustworthy.
Daniel 2:44-45 NASB
The dream is future, perhaps our near future. It WILL come to pass. It IS trustworthy. The Stone will come – and is near!
Our lives are only as stable as our secret foundation. The source of my foundation determines the nature of my entire building – my life and work. Foundation means “the lowest load bearing part of a building typically below ground.”
It’s not the external that counts but what is underneath. It’s not how much success or knowledge we have. The issue is, what is the secret basis of that achievement? It’s not the beauty of the building or the magnificence of a work for God. The foundation of each one of us will be exposed by fire. And survival in what is coming depends on our being built, founded, established on the Cornerstone!
