Daniel 7:9-14

Today is Christ The King Sunday; but WHY? CtK Sunday was formed because secular governments try to assert authority over the Church.

Why Look to the Ancient of Days for Guidance Today?

He is The Source of Sovereignty
Daniel 7:9-14

  • v9 look @ attributes: white=pure wisdom; fire=strong authority
  • v10/12 God has the right to judge, and He will do so
  • v13/14 Jews would interpret this as a sign of Israel’s supremacy; God will keep the King forever;
  • in other words, the Ancient of Days knows what He is doing by virtue of His wisdom and authority

He is the Answer for Authority
John 18:33-37

  • v33 Pilate asks a GOOD question: who do you rule, Jesus?
  • v34/35 next good question: what have you done, Jesus?
  • v36 Jesus’ kingdom NOT of this world; what is our response?
  • v37 everyone on side of truth listens to Jesus; what side are you on?

Pope Pius the Eleventh said that if Jesus is actually LORD, then all of our lives must be affected:

  • He must reign in our minds – we submit to His word
  • He must reign in our wills – we obey His word
  • He must reign in our hearts – we love God above all else
  • He must reign in our bodies – we live as instruments of justice for God
