God’s love endures for ever.

Daniel 7:1-8:14; 1 John 2:12-27; Psalm 136:13-26

Daniel 7:13-14 looks forward, prophetically, to the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the future towards which history is moving, the future towards which God is working, the future of the Kingdom of God. This world is passing away, “but the man who does the will of God lives for ever” (1 John 2:17). Psalm 136 continues to emphasize, over and over again, that “His love endures for ever.” This love does not guarantee salvation to those who refuse to welcome God’s Son, Jesus Christ, as their Saviour. Responding to God’s love by doing His will, we receive, eternal life. Those who belong to the Lord, those whom He has redeemed, are His for ever. Psalm 136 contains the contrast between Israel and Egypt. Israel are brought through the midst of the Red Sea. Pharaoh and his army are swept into the Red Sea (Psalm 136:13-15). The Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ will bring the ultimate division of men and women. There are those who belong to Christ. For them, there is salvation. There are those who have refused Christ. For them, there is judgment.
