Beloved Names of God .....series "Ancient of Days"

Today's post is from my book "Beloved Names of God"


Ancient of Days

 
"As I looked, "thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat.
His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool.
His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze."
Daniel 7:9 NIV
 
  • Name of God the Father
  • "Ancient of Days" appears three times in the KJV
  • Ancient of Days is variously attributed to Adam and Jesus. The Western church associates the name with God the Father.
  • Daniel had a vision of the end times in which great beast battled for control while the Ancient of Days looked on.
Daniel would have been very aware of the transience of earthly things. The land of his people had been devastated, and the faith of his fathers had all but been wiped from the earth. Almost nothing in his experience, was permanent- and he told his masters this. They should turn to God, who ruled when their empires were but a dream and would rule still when their empires turned to dust.
When Adam walked in the Garden, God smelled beside him. Those were ancient days for Moses, but God strode the desert with him as well. The days of Moses were ancient for Daniel, but God still shielded him from the flames. Daniel' days were ancient when Jesus became flesh, but God was an adoring Father to Him. Even now, God walks with you; Ancient of Days, and as young as a heart in love.
