Turn there with me and lets look at this passage.
While living in Babylon, Daniel is given several prophetic visions.
The one we are looking at here beginning in verse 9 and going through verse 14 is Daniel’s vision of the throne room of God.
It is the heavenly portal.
Look in verse 9
The Ancient of Days refers to the eternality of God.
Remember this is a vision.
Its a prophetic vision, so what you are reading is pictures.
The White Hair is meant to give the understanding that God is all wise and able to judge from His throne.
And thats precisely whats happens in verse 10
There is coming a day of judgment when all will stand before God Himself.
Thousands upon thousands of people.
The Books will be opened..
Th book by which we are judged.
The Word of God
This is why what we do here on Sunday morning, Sunday Night, Wednesday, Thursday is so important.

Has your name been written there.
Has Christ saved you.
On that day, you will know, if not before
Look at verse 11-12
Some believe this is referring to the anti christ at the end of time.
My personal belief here is that he is speaking of evil in general altogether in the future that will be judged.
Verse 12 speaks of the empires that he has spoken of in the rest of the book.
Their authority has been taken away, but they have been allowed to continue living for a short time, until they will find themselves in the same place as the rest of evil doers.
Suffice it to say that verse 11-12 states that God will judge all evil.
Look in verse 13
this is a vision of Jesus Christ.
One like a son of Man was coming.
Like A Son of Man tells us that this figure is human.
He approaches the Ancient of Days.

Who is able to waltz right up to the Father.
He given something.
Dominion, glory, and a kingdom (That sounds familiar)
He is given this for a purpose.
That sounds familiar as well.

Because he is man.
Because He is God, and because he has revealed the glory of God to us.
I would add that the Son of Man now sits at the right hand of God.
Stephen saw him, and one day I pray that you and I will too.
Not only did Stephen see him but John saw him as well.
If anyone would have recognized Jesus, it would have been John.
Here he calls him the Son of Man.
That is, He is the Son of God that comes to take on humanity for us, that we may behold His glory.
