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?
Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was disturbing to him and a complete puzzle to his many magicians. Eventually he remembered Daniel…
At last Daniel came in before me—he who was named Belteshazzar after the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods—and I told him the dream, saying, “O Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in you and that no mystery is too difficult for you, tell me the visions of my dream that I saw and their interpretation.”
Daniel 4:8-9 ESV
The king had left his experience of the True God and gone back to his idols and images of gods that didn’t exist. So the great power he had witnessed did not change him, nor his belief that he was himself the supreme god.
We will either recognize God as THE ONLY or leave Him entirely for false gods we can create in our own image.
