We often think of Jesus in terms of his earthly ministry. We rarely consider that Jesus is the King of the Universe, even though the prophet Daniel foretold the extent of the dominion of the Son of Man ages before Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary.
As the visions during the night continued, I saw
one like a Son of man coming,
on the clouds of heaven;
when he reached the Ancient One
and was presented before him,
the one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship;
all peoples, nations, and languages serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
that shall not be taken away,
his kingship shall not be destroyed.
It’s not shocking that we focus on the humanity of Jesus. After all, we are human and we feel a kinship with Jesus. We should not forget, though, that Jesus is much more than human. He is the King of the Universe, his dominion lasts forever and all things are subject to him.
Praise and glory to the King!
