“In the days of those kings, the God of the heavens will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, and this kingdom will not be left to another people. It will crush all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, but will itself endure forever.”
Daniel 2.44 CSB
The prophet foretold the establishment of the church during the power of the Roman Empire. It will outlast every human kingdom, because God has set it up.
In the church, God’s reign is evident. Whoever is in it now will be given entrance to the eternal kingdom. God welcomes all who will come by faith and obedience.
