The Theological Reason for Hope

From one of our favorites, Dr. Voddie Baucham.

“[God] has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days.”15

How can God make known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days? By the way, notice this is not what Daniel says. Daniel doesn’t say, “God gave you a dream so that you can make a choice.” That is not what Daniel says. Daniel doesn’t say, “God gave you this dream so that you would know that if you go down this road here is what is going to happen to you and if you go down that road, here is what is going to happen to
you.”

That happens in Scripture. That is not what happens here. Daniel doesn’t say, “God gave you a dream so that he would give you a choice.” Daniel says, “God gave you a dream so you would know what is going to happen.”

And what we are going to find out next week is God gave you a dream about how you are going to be wiped out. But don’t fret, because the nation that wipes you out is going to be wiped out. And that is ok, because the nation that wipes them out is going to be wiped out. And ultimately there is only one kingdom that is never going to be wiped out and it happens to be the kingdom of this slave that is standing before you giving you the interpretation of the dream. I am so happy to tell you.
