You, O king, are the king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, the strength and the glory… Daniel 2:37
I’ve read that before, but never really noticed how very similar it is to the Lord’s prayer: “For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory…” But Daniel was saying this to an earthly king, Nebuchadnezzar! He even called him the “king of kings” a term I usually reserve for God. So what’s the difference? The Lord’s prayer goes on to say “,,,FOREVER”
Ah, yes. A man may be the king of kings and have a kingdom with power and glory, but only GOD has that forever. Other kingdoms come, and other kingdoms go, but the kingdom of God will stand for all eternity!
