Read Introduction to Daniel

 

Daniel 7:26 “But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it forever. 27 Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’ 28 “This is the end of the account. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts greatly troubled me, and my countenance changed; but I kept the matter in my heart.”
 
7:26
‘But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it forever.
When the fourth beast’s kingdom ends, then God launches His kingdom (7:26-28).  God will destroy the fourth beast’s kingdom forever (2 Th 2:7,8; Re 19:20).  Gentile world rule will collapse when Jesus Christ comes in His Second Coming (not the Rapture). 
7:27
Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’
This verse records a promise to believing Jews that they will have a future kingdom.  After God defeats the Antichrist, He will launch the fifth kingdom, the kingdom of the Son of Man.  Saints will be the center of God’s blessing during this kingdom.  Jesus will be King Jesus, King of the World.  His personal reign is the solution to all of mankind’s problems. 
7:29
“This is the end of the account. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts greatly troubled me, and my countenance changed; but I kept the matter in my heart.”
Daniel notes the end and his personal response to the vision. 
PRINCIPLE: 
Jesus’ kingdom will triumph over all problems and foes. 
APPLICATION: 
Jesus’ kingdom is triumphal.  It is the final and eternal kingdom.  There will be a redeemed, reformed and glorified people of God there. Nations will be there, bringing the glory of their history.  People of all cultures and colors will be there.  No animal will be carnivorous.  There will be no more war, for swords will be turned into plowshares.  All things will be new.  There will be universal knowledge of God. 
Is 11:9 “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.”
Re 21:24 “And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.”
