Where is God?
This is often the question of skeptics, scoffers, and even troubled souls. Trials and tribulations of one sort or another crowd our personal lives, while corruption, conflict, and catastrophe command the world scene. Indeed, where is God in all of this?
Asking the question is fair enough; answering demands caution.God’s Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel is a cautious and biblical answer to that question. This book focuses on the heavenly throne from which God rules according to his perfect will and unchangeable, unfailing purpose. God is in absolute control of all things: the big issues of the world, as well as the seemingly bigger issues of our lives. Daniel’s view of history and prophecy shows that God’s kingdom is coming and that God’s will is being done on earth as certainly as it is in heaven. Daniel’s message is simply, “Not to worry—everything is under control.”
“he remained pure in a place where sinning was easy.” (Page 32)
“All of time and all that happens in time from the past to the present to the future are the prerogative of the one true, living and only sovereign God. Not even the most powerful kingdoms of earth own their own destinies.” (Page 53)
“As so often occurs in sinful abandonment, the sins of the flesh express themselves in sacrilege against God.” (Page 149)
“Faith must resolve the constant tension between experience and truth.” (Page 2)
“Daniel skips from Intertestamental opposition to eschatological opposition without warning or clue” (Page 110)
