What does Daniel 6:25 mean?

Following Daniel's deliverance (Daniel 6:19–23) and his accusers' execution (Daniel 6:24), Darius (Daniel 5:31) wrote to all his subjects. While Daniel was in the lions' den, Darius had suffered from an extreme lack of peace (Daniel 6:14–18). Here, he wishes the opposite for his people. What follows is a glowing endorsement of Daniel's faith and an appeal to the entire world to honor Daniel's God (Daniel 6:26–27).

The book of Daniel includes overt and indirect references to the events of the end times. When righteous Jews emerge triumphant over the persecution they experience in the end times tribulation, the King of kings and Lord of lords will cause peace to sweep over planet earth. Isaiah describes Jesus as "Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6) and promises that His power will never end (Isaiah 9:7). Isaiah 54:10 promises God's redeemed people that that the mountains and hills may fall flat but his steadfast love will not depart from them, nor will his covenant of peace be removed. While Darius could only wish for peace, Jesus will establish and sustain peace in His kingdom.
