Gospel Doctrine Notebook

  1. Daniel was privileged to see much of the history of the world from his day forward. As we review that history, we see the rise and fall of remarkable kingdoms. And yet Daniel saw that one more kingdom would rise, fill the earth, and stand forever. We are blessed and privileged to be part of that kingdom. Do we appreciate the importance of this? The ancient Greek and Roman empires were considered among the greatest of all time, and yet, we are part of a kingdom that will dwarf these remarkable empires from history. We should catch Daniel's vision and strive to do all that we can in building God's kingdom on earth.
  2. Record your thoughts on Daniel's interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar's dream. What significance does this have in your life? What can you do to help build this great kingdom/
