God's future

Monday November 23rd, Daniel 7: Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.  The horn of the beast in Daniel is the mouthpiece of the power of this world, the mouthpiece of military and monetary might.  In God's vision there is no place for it in the kingdom of God, the kingdom of the future, the kingdom of our future.  Other temptations are around us also, but their time is also limited.  When we catch this vision for God's future world, the world to which we are called, it is hard to get all caught up in the power plays of this world.  God's future is a world of peace; a world where all live as the children of God, a place where there is healing and wholeness for all the nations.  God's call is a call to start living that vision now, in our lives here today.
