1 Yellow text = Bible. White text = explanation. “The Image Destroyed by a Rock!”A 2,600 year old prediction of our time, our future and our World’s history!By Daniel the Prophet Daniel Chapter 2, From The BibleYellow text = Bible. White text = explanation.
2 Daniel’s Symbolic Vision of our Future! Did you know that long ago one man foresaw what would happen in our time? God’s prophet Daniel saw a terrible statue symbolising 2,600 years on the timeline of World History.It was hit at the feet, at the end, in our time, by “a rock” coming from “the Mountain of God.”The Rock totally destroyed the image!And what happened to the Rock?It became a mountain & filled the whole Earth!
3 The Prophet Daniel Lived 2,600 Years Ago! Daniel, an Israelite of royal blood from the tribe of Judah, was born around 620 B.C. (Before Christ)He lived in exile in the Babylonian & in the Medo-Persian Empire.This is said to be Daniel’s tomb in the city of Susa in Iran.Anti-God forces recently changed B.C. to “B.C.E.”, meaning “Before Common Era.” Of all things, they changed Christ into Common. Smell the bias?
4 Daniel & King Nebuchadnezzar! In 605 BC, when Daniel was teenager, Nebuchadnezzar II besieged Jerusalem for the first time. Daniel & other Jews were taken as slaves to Babylon. (Dan 1:1-33,6)There he spent 3 years ‘studying the learning & the language of the Chaldeans’ (Dan 1:4).Along with his 3 friends Daniel was made courtier at King Nebuchadnezzar’s court & later became one of his counsellors & wise men. (Dan 1:19,20 & 2:13)The siege of Jerusalem 605 BCThe Jews are forced into exile
5 The King of Babylon had a Dream… Daniel became God’s prophet in 603 BC, when King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had an important dream that he couldn't remember after waking up.So he called his wise men!He dreamt something very importantHis sleep brake from him ….but he couldn’t remember
6 The King Tests His Wise Men. He told his wise men to "remember the dream" for him, & to tell him its interpretation.If they could not, they would be "cut in pieces and their houses would be made a dunghill!“His wise men protested that such a thing was impossible!So the King ordered their execution!
7 Daniel Asked God for Mercy Daniel was also one of the wise men and asked the King to give him time.He didn't want to die & so he asked "mercies of the God of Heaven about this secret, so that Daniel & his fellows wouldn't perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon!”“Then was the secret revealed to Daniel in a nightly vision.”
8 Daniel’s First VisionHis first vision predicts the World’s history from his time (600 BC) until our time (2005 AD) and beyond the End of the world, into the 1000 year reign of God!Later on, Daniel received even more visions about the future of Israel & of the entire World, especially about the Endtime also called the “Time of the End”, “Latter days" or “Last days"!His visions are recorded in the ‘Book of Daniel’ chapters 2, 7, 8, 9, 11 & 12, in the Holy Bible.
9 Daniel Goes In to See the King. The Captain of the guard brought Daniel before the king & told him, “I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known to the king the interpretation.”The king said to Daniel, “Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen, and its interpretation?”Daniel answered, “The secret which the king has asked for cannot the wise men, astrologers, magicians, & soothsayers, show the king.”“But there’s a God in heaven that reveals secrets, & makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream, & the visions of your head on your bed, are these:”Daniel credits God for the vision!
10 God Reveals Secrets!(Daniel 2:29) “As for you, O king, your thoughts came into your mind on your bed, what should come to pass hereafter: & he that reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass.’30 “But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, & that you might know the thoughts of your heart.”
11 Daniel Tells The King His Dream! 31 “You, O king, saw, and look a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form thereof was terrible.”32 “This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,33 “His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.”
12 A Stone Hits The Image’s Feet! 34 “You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which hit the image on its feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces.35 “Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors;“And the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that broke the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
13 “You Are the Head of Gold!” 36 “This is the dream; and we will tell its interpretation before the king.37 “You, O king, are a king of kings: for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.38 “And where so ever the children of men live, the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all.“You are this head of gold.Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon are symbolised as a head of gold!
14 The Babylonian Empire. 610 BC until 538 BC. A Head of GoldThe golden head was Nebuchadnezzar’s Kingdom. Babylon was closely associated with gold. Herodotus reported an abundance of gold in Babylon, and a great golden statue of Zeus . Babylon was the best & most glorious empire of all. Babylon’s hanging gardens were world famous, even today!
15 Chest & Arms of Silver!139 “And after you shall rise up another kingdom inferior to you.”2In 538 BC, Darius the Mede, king of both Medes & Persians, conquered Babylon.God pictured Medo-Persia as 2 silver arms and chest.—A dual or double empire of 2 nations!As the right arm is stronger than the left, so the Persians were stronger than the Medes!
16 The Medo Persian Empire from 538 BC til 333 BC Arms & Chest Of SilverGreek historian Herodotus tells us: “The Medo-Persian empire collected taxes in silver as a rule; even the one vassal state that paid gold (India) had its tax calculated in terms of the value of silver!”In 333 BC Medo-Persia was defeated by the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great.Picture: Darius the Mede who conquered Babylon. King Cyrus’ tomb in Iran.
17 A Belly of Brass (& Legs of Iron.) Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar:39 And after you shall rise up another kingdom inferior to you,12and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.(The Earth as known to Daniel.)340 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron:4After Medo Persia a belly of brass symbolised the 3rd kingdom, the Greek Empire, under Alexander the Great who defeated the Persian armies in 333 BC, & conquered the then known World in less than 10 years time.
18 The Greek Empire 333 BC until @ 42 BC. Belly of BrassGod symbolised the Grecian Empire as a belly! And it was indeed well- known for its interest in food, sex, & — the belly being the seat of the Spirit — in philosophy! And guess what! Greek weaponry was made of Brass! (A copper & tin alloy.)Alexander the Great conquered his great Empire in a very short time & it was very large, all the way from Southern Europe to India! — “Bear rule over all the earth”
19 Legs of Iron, the 4th Kingdom. 40 “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron:41 “for as much as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things:and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.12The iron sword & breastplate was standard for the Roman soldier, plus Romans were great on building roads for marching.Does it not make sense now, that God created Italy — the center of the Roman Empire — in the form of a leg or a boot?Even its toes stumbling over a … ROCK!? (The island Sicily.)34
20 The Roman Empire. 42 BC until 1400 AD The Roman Empire. 42 BC until 1400 AD. (“Anno Dominium” = The year of our Lord!)The Greek Empire was succeeded by the Roman Empire. Why two legs? Was Rome ever divided? Oh yes it was! Into the Eastern & the Western Roman Empires that later became Roman Catholic Western, and Orthodox Christian Eastern Europe.2 Legs of Iron
21 Toes of Iron & Clay!41 “And whereas you saw the feet & toes, part of potters' clay, & part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.42 “And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, & part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.43 “And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mix themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not stick to each other, just as iron is not mixed with clay.
22 Coming Antichrist World Government Toes of Iron & ClayThe “New World Order” has been forming for over 200 years.This final One World Government will be a combination of iron dictatorships & clay democracies. Iron rule & clay like people.Like the 10 toes, it will be led by a nucleus of 10 “Kings” or Nations! Either the European Union or the Security Council of the United Nations, or some other ruling body.It will rule the World for a very short time! Only 7 years!Then it will be destroyed…. By a powerful ROCK!
23 “The Kingdom that shall never be Destroyed!” 44 “In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
24 The Rock Destroys the Evil History of Man. 45 “Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.”46 “Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet perfumes to him.”
25 Jesus returns to establish the final Everlasting Kingdom of God The Rock is the soon return of Jesus Christ completely destroying the last World Empire of the Antichrist, and all leftovers of the old empires. Then the World will be filled with the Millennial Kingdom of God that will last a thousand years and Jesus & His saints of all ages will reign and rule it forever.
26 5+2=7 Empires + the Kingdom of God Plus the 2 previous empires, Egypt & Assyria, there are a total of 7 Empires involved with Israel, 7 is God’s number!God’s Kingdom is no. 8, which means: “new beginnings!”The Rock destroys all what remains of these 7 empires!“And the Rock became a great mountain and filled the whole earth!”
27 The Millennial Kingdom of God We are now living in the period of “the feet” just before “the toes".Jesus is about to return, to set up God’s Kingdom over the World for a thousand years of peace & love!There’ll be peace on Earth!Are you already part of His Kingdom?
