As we start Daniel 7, we are coming to the second half of the book — the prophetic section. As with the Book of Revelation, there is much here that at first glance can seem so confusing, and even frightening. And that is a shame. God does not give prophecies like this in Daniel (or in Revelation) to confuse us or scare us, but to assure us. And here He is assuring that no power in all of creation can separate us from the love that has been won for us by His Son, the Son of Man, coming onto the scene of history….for us!
