Daniel: Our Only Hope
Tom Atchison   -  

Wars and More Wars, but God is in Control

While these final verses of chapter 11 continue from our last message, they point beyond to another great, but destructive leader. Jesus spoke in the same way in Matthew 24 of near events folded into faraway events. The end of this chapter reminds us the battle is ultimately the kingdoms of this world against the kingdom of God or Humanity against God. There is more yet to come and we need to continually trust on God who is in control and cares for His people. While we are prone to fear, anxiety, discouragement and depression when all seems so dark, there is always hope. Jesus only gives us this hope because He is the final Conqueror.
