What does Daniel 2:25 mean?

Arioch (Daniel 2:12–15) hurried to take Daniel (Daniel 2:16–19) to Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2:1–4, 24). He must have believed Daniel could solve the mystery of Nebuchadnezzar's dream. It also sems he hoped Nebuchadnezzar would reward him for his part in revealing the secret (Daniel 2:6). Arioch claimed some credit by saying he "found" Daniel among the captured Hebrew youths (Daniel 1:1–7). Of course, Daniel 2:16 tells us that Daniel had requested a stay of execution from the king. It seems reasonable that Arioch would know that. But he still announces Daniel in this way and wants to link himself to the success he expects Daniel to experience before the king. This could have backfired on Arioch: the king ordered him to kill Babylon's wise men, not to seek out the answer to a mystery. And yet, Arioch, a pagan with no connection to the God of Israel, trusted Daniel, a captive Jew, to shine light into Nebuchadnezzar's dark and mysterious dream.

In the future tribulation period, saved Jews will be among those to shine the light of the gospel of the kingdom into both Jewish and Gentile hearts. Matthew 24:14 promises, "This gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."
