Dear Mosaic Family,Have you noticed the recent trend in Hollywood to make movies and shows about the end of the world? The future of our planet is always being threatened, by aliens, asteroids, floods, freezing, killer viruses, robots, mutants, nuclear weapons, and of course, zombies. Ours is a culture full of existential angst and Hollywood (and Politicians!) are cashing in on it. We're past the question, "Is the world going to when?" Not "is" but "when?" This is the perfect time to study the biblical apocalyptic literature in the Book of Daniel. The visions Daniel sees reveal a grim future full of chaos, conflict, and rebellion against God. However, Daniel assures us, salvation will come from the "Son of Man" to whom will be given "dominion, and glory and a kingdom that all peoples, nations, and languages" will serve him and "his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed." No matter the chaos in the world around us, King Jesus is on His throne and in control.
We're devoting the next two Sundays to covering the prophetic passages of the book of Daniel. Tomorrow we'll look at portions of chapters 7-9, and then next Sunday, we'll cover parts of chapters 10-12. Since we won't have time to cover all three chapters each Sunday, I recommend you take some time to read through the text ahead of time. This way, our time in God's Word together will be much more fruitful.
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
