• New Hope for God’s People Devotional

    Daniel 7:1-12

    We will look at the specifics of Daniel 7 in more detail tomorrow. Today, we note that to know and understand Scripture according to the original meaning of its authors is the only way we can rightly apply the Bible in a way that pleases God. God grants us the right to private interpretation, but as Dr. R.C. Sproul has often said, He does not grant us the right to misinterpretation. Insofar as we are able, let us be careful to understand Scripture according to its original intent. View Resource

  • He Who Comes in Clouds Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    We may not often use the title Son of Man when we refer to Jesus, but we must never forget the reality behind it. Jesus alone is the King of kings and Lord of lords. It is His will that stands supreme and must be obeyed even if it conflicts with lesser authorities. It is Him in whom we hope, not the kingdoms of men. When we look at the world around us we should be comforted that our Savior rules over all and that we are a part of His never-ending kingdom. View Resource

  • Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    Given the original context of Daniel 7, the title “Son of Man” is indeed fitting for the Son of God who became incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ. He is already sitting at the right hand of His Father, having come into His kingdom at His ascension and session (seated on the throne) in heaven. Even now He is extending His reign as people believe and submit to His rule. Let us bow to Him as King of kings and Lord of lords so that others may see His reign. View Resource

  • Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    Enemies of the faith say that Jesus never claimed a special heavenly status or kingship for Himself. But, as we have seen, when Jesus calls Himself “Son of Man,” He is claiming to be sovereign over all things. Pray for those who will not submit to Christ’s rule that they may see that they owe obedience toward the King of kings. View Resource

  • One like a Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:13-28

    Tomorrow we will see that this text foresees the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and divine Son of Man in His ascension and session at the Father’s right hand. In His death, resurrection, and ascension, He has won the decisive battle against evil, and reigns over all things even if His enemies have not yet given up the fight. We are His people, and we benefit from His reign and His protection in ways that we can see and in ways that we will not know about until we are in glory. View Resource
