As Daniel had visions of the future and the rise of powerful kingdoms, there would be one more powerful, who would establish a forever kingdom.
Daniel 7:13-14 13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
As human rulers put Christ on trial and condemned him to death, it would not be over for this king, but it would be the start of the forever kingdom.
Mark 14:61-62 again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” 62 “I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
