Faith in God Amidst the Beasts [Daniel 7]

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series on the book of Daniel by turning our attention to chapter 7, which begins the markedly different second half of the book. Chapters 1-6 are court narratives, while chapters 7-12 are apocalyptic visions. This first vision serves as a sort of parallel to Daniel 2 and overview of where the rest of the book is going.

You can view the message video and sermon outline below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

“I, Daniel, was troubled in spirit, and the visions that passed through my mind disturbed me. I approached one of those standing there and asked him the meaning of all this.” (Daniel 7:15-16)

Four Evil Beasts from the Sea (Daniel 7:1-8)

 

The Throne Room of God and the Son of Man (Daniel 7:9-14)

  

The Victory of God over the Beasts of Earth (Daniel 7:15-28)

  

Three Takeaways from Daniel 7:

  1. Human evil shakes the earth, but a cosmic conflict underlies all that we see.
  2. Treasure the Son of Man who is the authoritative King of all kings.
  3. God’s ultimate victory should shape our daily living as God’s people.
