One like a son of man coming,
on the clouds of heaven;
When he reached the Ancient One
and was presented before him,
He received dominion, glory, and kingship;
nations and peoples of every language serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
that shall not be taken away,
his kingship shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7
Amidst all the turmoil and terrorism, the totality of geopolitical strife and instability, in the midst of all our fears, the prophecy of Daniel seems remarkably timely and consoling. The prophet reminds us that God's love and dominion are everlasting, very real and will not be outdone. We delight to entrust ourselves to God's providence.
