GCC's Children's Ministry exists to make faithful followers of Christ by connecting, challenging, and impacting parents and their children.
This week, we're learning:
Daniel 7: Daniel's Dream
To convey God’s message, Daniel shared his dream of four beasts, which each represented a nation or empire. As before, God revealed that these empires warring against Him are temporary. Under the umbrella of Rome, Daniel revealed that “little horn,” which stands for an evil figure often referred to as the antichrist, will rise to power. Just when it appears that the antichrist will destroy God’s people, he too will face the Ancient of Days. These verses not only give us a glimpse into the culmination of Daniel’s vision but also of redemptive history. Daniel described the Son of Man’s eternal dominion over a vast kingdom and the glory that encompasses it, all of which commences with what the Bible refers to as a new heaven and new earth.
