Daniel: The Sovereignty of God and the Future of Mankind

Daniel paints a picture of the great God of the universe fully in control of Israel, the Gentiles, and indeed the world as it develops.

This series of messages is a verse-by-verse exposition of the book of Daniel by Cornel Rasor, a pastor at Kootenai Community Church. These messages were preached during our Sunday Morning Adult Sunday School Service. Click here for more teaching by Cornel Rasor.

Purging, Wickedness, and Insight (Daniel 12: 3-13)

The angel finishes his discourse with Daniel. While Daniel is not given total information regarding the end times, he is given enough to understand what he must do and how he should act in the wicked generation he lived in. That supply of information resonates down through the ages to the people of God in every circumstance and provides hope for Israel and the Gentiles in the future. The final statement encourages Daniel that a bodily resurrection into glory with Yahweh awaits him.
