As I continued to watch this night vision of mine, I suddenly saw
one like a human being
Daniel 7:13-14 (CEB*)
coming with the heavenly clouds.
He came to the ancient one
and was presented before him.
Rule, glory, and kingship were given to him;
all peoples, nations, and languages will serve him.
His rule is an everlasting one -
it will never pass away! -
his kingship is indestructible.
Daniel's vision is an appropriate one for Christ the King Sunday. The same term here translated "one like a human being" was frequently used by Jesus, and traditionally translated as "son of man."
To me, this is a vision of hope. It tells me that this time of rule by humans who often give in to temptations of power and greed will pass away. There is a brighter time ahead.
