Bible commentary

Discussion for Daniel 7:14

  • The Kingdom and dominion of Christ mentioned in the book of Daniel Chapter 7V14 can begin in our hearts if we allow Christ to take authourity of our life and be our ruler in all angles of our lives today.Christ's dominion of our lives will be everlasting even if we die because his dominion shall neither be destroyed nor pass away
  • The term God is a title not a name. As such can and does apply to the Father(2 Peter 1:17),The Son (John 5:16-18,23;Philip 2:6 "who being [Grk. remaining] in the form of God"; Heb. 1:8,10; Ps.102:25; Jn.20:28; 1Jn. 5:20; Exod. 3:14;Jn. 8:24. 58; Is. 44:6; Rev. 1:17-18; 2:8; Is. 6:1-10; Jn. 12:39-41), and of the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3-4; 2 Cor. 3:17) Also the word "serve" in Dan. 7:14 is only used 10 times in the bible, each referring to religious service or worship of Jesus.
  • Who is the son of man? and who is the ancient of days? and what is this kingdom that shall not be destroyed? And there will be given him dominion.... The definition of dominion is:
    1. rule; authority
    2. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) the land governed by one ruler or government
    3. sphere of influence; area of control

    When the bible uses the term "son of man" it always refers to Christ. In 7:13 the "ancient of days is refereing to God. So 13 is making a distinction of to seperate persons. The ancient of days and christ. And that God will be giving Christ a kingdom. And this kingdom appears to be one on earth. How is it then that most christians think that Christ is God and that this kingdom is heavenly and not on earth?
