Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Dan 7:1-3

Daniel 7:1-3

KJV 1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. 2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

Darby 1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream; he told the sum of the matters. 2 Daniel spoke and said, I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of the heavens broke forth upon the great sea. 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, different one from another.

 

 

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

 

1 For Daniel to have dreams at this point was normal, it is the way God spoke to Him. He writes down the dream so he makes sure he knows what it means, when God speaks to us we need to make sure we know what He means, also God doesn’t speak thru every dream but He can speak thru dreams.

 

2 Wind often times symbolizes God’s presence, the sea often times symbolizes the people.

 

3 These four beasts we see as four kings of four great kingdoms.
