We will be taking a break for a while from 2 Samuel. This week we will be looking at Daniel 2 which sets forth God‚Äôs plan for the nations. I was drawn to this text in light of our nation‚Äôs recent celebration of Independence Day. Daniel 2 puts the greatness of our nation and all other nations into perspective. Daniel 2 also presents an overview of eschatology with which we all can agree (whether pre-mil, a-mil, post-mil, or pan-mil (it will all pan out in the end)) and profit. How blessed we are to be a part of a kingdom which is glorious and everlasting.
