April 12, 2015 – Morning Worship
Monday – Daniel 7; Revelation 14:14-20
Read these passages and consider what we learn about the Son of Man. Also list any lessons you see there for us as Christians.
There seems to be an even more serious interest in the end of the world than in the recent past, in movies, books, games, etc. Why do you think that is? Is that good or bad? Why?
These passages are good examples of apocalyptic literature (i.e. focused on the end times, uses fantastic and sometimes unusual images, revealed and interpreted by a messenger and ending in a great cataclysm). How does this type of literature fit with the gospel message?
Believe it or not, the focus of Daniel 7 is not the beasts and who they represent (then or now!) but on something else. What do you think it is? What’s the application to you? To the church?
Friday – Daniel 7:9-14; Revelation 4, 5
Consider these descriptions of the heavenly court, the throne- room of the God in heaven. What is the writer trying to teach us? How might this affect our daily lives?
What do we learn here about the son of man? How is he different than the kings of this world, like Nebuchadnezzar? They were also glorious, mighty, majestic and powerful. So what’s the difference and how does it apply to us?
