live in that vision now

Sunday November 22nd, Daniel 7: As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him.  Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. This is one of the visions of the end times in the book of Daniel.  It was a vision that helped put in perspective the power and force of one of the mightiest nations in the world.  This nation had great power, and weapons and might, and was to be feared by all on earth.  It was the Super Power of the day and it ruled by use of that power, military might, influence and money to control by one means or another all within its grasp.  Perhaps, you could draw the parallels to other Super Power nations.   Compared to the Ancient of Days, the Lord God Almighty however, the power of the so called super powers is nothing, and perhaps one could also draw parallels on this issue also.   This section of Daniel is a call to place ones focus not on the power of this world, but where this world will ultimately be when the reign of God is finally manifest.  It is a call to catch the vision of the future and live in that vision now.  All of scripture can be summed up in the words, love God, love others.  The current discussion on refugees is one way we show our true colors in how we love others. That was good advice in Jesus day and it is good and God advice for today.  What is God’s all inclusive vision for your future?  Ponder on that and then live it in your life today.
