Excerpt:

Excerpt:

“The Key Is at the Door” is a Bible principle. It tells us that the key to understanding a Bible book is
found at the beginning of that book. The sanctuary, or temple, is mentioned at the beginning of
Daniel. The temple is all about Christ and his cross. It is a symbol of every believer’s “Pilgrim’s
Progress.”

Excerpt:

In the space of one chapter, Daniel summarizes all human history. The dream of Chapter 2 reveals that God sets up and takes down human empires. The stone in the dream is the everlasting kingdom of God. That Stone is Christ also. If we choose him, he breaks our sinfulness. If we reject him, we are crushed.
