“Son of Man – Jesus Christ Our Lord” Daniel 7:13-14

An Expositional Sermon
The vision that Daniel had is pointing straight at the good news of Jesus Christ – death, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ. And think of all the imagery of the dream in Daniel 7 so far. The beasts emerging from the water, were judged by the Ancient of Days as the books were opened, and the fourth beast was destroyed and the three beasts’ dominion was taken from them but their lives continued for a season and a time. Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Christ was crushed by the fourth beast, and yet it was in His death that the fourth beast and hence all the mutant-beasts, sinful man, of this world will be destroyed. And here’s why this isn’t an exact chronology of time. God is outside of time working eternal things in time. So, in the death of Christ we see God bringing the event that will take place at the end of time – the final judgment – and focus it all in one event during the historical fourth kingdom after Greece – Rome.
