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 7:11-14

Recommended Posts

[h=1]Daniel 7:11-14 King James Version (KJV)[/h] 11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

[h=1]Daniel 7:11-14[/h] Darby 11 I beheld therefore, because of the voice of the great words that the horn spoke; I beheld till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed, and it was given up to be burned with fire. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away; but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. 13 I saw in the night visions, and behold, there came with the clouds of heaven [one] like a son of man, and he came up even to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

 

11 This world the evil one will come but the Lord will handle him and put him out for good, he will be in the fires of hell for eternity.

 

12 The Lord has mercy but the time is already set for those that follow satan to be judged, the demons will be thrown in the lake of firs along with satan.

 

13 This is Jesus going up to the Father.

 

14 This may describe what could have happened at the cross or this could before judgment on the earth is poured out, it isn’t sure when because we aren’t meant to know, but we should be ready. He will be king and His reign never ends. His earthly kingdom hasn’t started yet but we are as Christians are on earth being apart of that kingdom.

Hello, clark thompson, I just wanted to mention that verses 13 and 14 of Daniel 7 describe Jesus receiving His kingdom from the Father. It is also paralleled in Daniel 2:44,45 as Christ is the rock that was cut out without hands and destroys all the other kingdoms. But a study of Revelation chapters 19-22 shows the timing of the setting up of Christ's kingdom on earth only happens after the earth is made new, which follows the destruction of all the wicked, which follows Satan being bound for a thousand years on this earth while all the redeemed are reigning with Christ in heaven for that thousand years. Christ will return to this earth soon to redeem His people, and will destroy the evil kingdoms of this earth at his coming (1 Thes. 4:16,17; 2 Thes. 2:8). God bless.

When the Lord destroys the wicked, I believe He is also going to destroy the entire universe. Below is a good article on this:

I believe the new heaven and new earth will be outside this universe.
