Chapter 2__The Dream of Nebuchadnezzar
Daniel 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
It would seem that this verse should read:
And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar HE dreamed dreams.
In Daniel 1:5 we read that the three years had already been completed and yet this verse says:
in the second year of Nebuchadnezzar.
The problem is that Nebuchadnezzar first began to rule under his father, Nabopolassar, which is what chapter one refers to. The second year, here in chapter two, is the second year when he ruled by himself.
There’s no explanation given here because at the time of the writing it was common knowledge to everyone that ‘ole Neb ruled under/with his father for the first year.
If you caught that, good for you! Most people would have read right over it. And what might have looked like an error in the record, really adds validity to Daniel having written this book. An unauthorized copyist wouldn’t have purposely inserted an apparent error.
But Nebuchadnezzar dreamed this dream and it awoke him with a start…his sleep brake from him…because it troubled him. It was a bad dream, simply put.
Daniel 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
A sorcerer was a person that was supposed to be able to communicate with the nether world, be able to put spells on folks and such:
✡ Sorcerer_OT:3784 kashaph (kaw-shaf'); a primitive root; properly, to whisper a spell, i.e. to inchant or practise magic:
Daniel 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
I think that we need to understand why Nebuchadnezzar had this dream. It’s going to foretell the coming captivity of Judah and the fall of the next four world powers to come.
Judah had drifted away from our Father to such a point that He was now going to chastise them by putting them into captivity under the Babylonians. Their daily life, socially and religiously, had fallen into some very dark places.
Adultery, sodomy, covetousness and a great desire for luxury became a way of life. False prophets and renegade priests took the place of the Levites. They no longer worshipped our Father.
They worshipped and burned incense, not only to Baal, but to everything that could be seen in the sky at night: planets, moons, stars and what have you. Moloch worshipping became rampant, the burning of their babies alive, was seen daily on the edge of the valley of Hinnom, the garbage pit area for the city of Jerusalem. (Also the place where the spiritual war of Armageddon will be fought. Our Father in control of it, naturally.)
Daniel 2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
In Syriack . The first part of this book, from chapter 1:1 to this verse was written in Hebrew. From here until chapter 7:28, it will be written in the language of the Babylonians, Chaldee or Syriack. Chapter 7:28 being the end of chapter 7.
Then from chapter 8:1 to the end of the book, it will switch back to Hebrew. No one knows for certain why the switch in languages. Some say that the first part was written while Daniel was in Babylon and the rest written while he was in Jerusalem.
Others speculate that the entire book was written in Hebrew and then parts of it were lost or destroyed and other Aramaic writings were used to fill in the lost material.
Be that as it may, the King’s people, his wise men, are still saying that they will interpret this dream for him.
Daniel 2:5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
No pressure put on them there, what?
Daniel 2:6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
If they can do it they’ll become rich; if they cannot, they will die.
Daniel 2:7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.
Just tell us what the dream was and we’ll try to interpret it from there. It’s going to be pretty hard explaining something that they don’t even know about.
Daniel 2:8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.
I know of certainty that ye would gain the time. Even the king knows that they might just tell him anything just to gain a little more time. Maybe to consult among themselves, try to make something up that would satisfy him.
Now, since Father is the originator of the dream in the first place, why would He stop ‘ole Neb from remembering it? To allow Daniel to do it; to not only know what the dream was but the interpretation of it. It’s to show everyone that the God of Daniel is far more powerful that the pagan gods of the Babylonians.
That goes for you and I as well.
Daniel 2:9 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.
This actually includes Daniel and his three friends, although they are not mentioned or present here, but they are still a part of this dream-revealing group of individuals.
Till the time be changed means that until the king either lets this dream go and not worry with it any longer or until a coup-de-‘tat forces him off of the throne and out of power.
What the king knows, as well, is that if these people can’t tell him what the dream was about and what it means, it also suggests that they cannot foretell the future either, and that’s reason enough to have them killed.
Daniel 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
They are in one heck of a predicament but still they have a little backbone left among them because what they’re saying is that NO OTHER king would ask THEIR magicians or astrologers to do this.
But by saying this, they have as much admitted to the king that they couldn’t foretell the future nor the past from the git go.
Daniel 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
They keep on trying to convince the king that no one could do what he is asking. Notice the word god has the small g in it, still referring to some pagan deity and not our Father.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, so to speak, Daniel and the three others must have been wondering what the heck was going on in the king’s court and I’m sure that Daniel was praying to the Father for all he was worth.
Don’t forget, too, that Nebuchadnezzar was our Father’s servant and was doing exactly what He wanted him to do. Father was still in control of the whole situation.
As human beings, it’s extremely difficult to place our faith in something or someone unseen, especially under extreme circumstances but then, that’s what faith is all about.
If someone is brand new at putting their faith in our Father, it is more difficult for them than those of us who have loved Him and studied about Him, through the Scriptures, for many years, because, if you have had your eyes and ears opened during those years, you have seen Him work in your life more than once.
Daniel 2:12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
That would include Daniel and the other three.
Daniel 2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.
This is the day of reckoning.
Daniel 2:14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:
Where did Daniel get this counsel and wisdom? From the Father, naturally.
Daniel 2:15 He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
This is the first word that they had about the king’s dream and the interpretation required, and the order to have all of them killed if no one could do what the king had ordered.
Daniel 2:16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.
He would not only show the interpretation but he would tell him what the dream was that had awakened him.
Daniel 2:17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
Daniel went to confer with his compatriots, all of whom were a part of our Father’s election. How could they not be? Father wouldn’t just pick three guys off the street corner and ask them to go through the fire in the furnace.
He had to have three people, three souls, that had proven themselves, and these three, no doubt, did it back in the first heaven/earth age. He had to have someone that He could count on, someone that He had confidence in.
Can He count on you? Does He have confidence in you? He will if you start paying attention to Him. How do you do that? By studying His Letter to us, just like we’re doing right here. We all have very, very busy lives but you’ve got to take some time every day to read and study His Book.
Don’t let these few years in this earthly body slip by and end up doing nothing to ensure that you’ll spend eternity with Him. And if the church you go to doesn’t feed you from this Word, you’re basically wasting your time.
That will probably upset some people but I don’t care. Time is running out. Just listen to the news lately. Do you wonder why every Democrat or progressive or socialist hates President Trump? Do you wonder why people across this country are forming groups to rally against him?
One reason is that they’re scared to death that he’s going to take away all their free money from the government. They might actually have to get off the couch, put down that bottle of beer, put that roach out in the ashtray, and go out and get a job.
President Trump is a person with a good soul. We haven’t seen anyone like him since President Reagan. Trump is standing up for what is right and righteous for the people and this nation.
Is he going to do everything right? NO. But he represents everything that is good about this country and that’s why the democrats and the socialist hate him.
The Democrats are a group of people that represent HATE. Just look at Nancy Pelosi the next time she’s on TV. The hate just spews out of this woman’s mouth, so much so, that her voice quivers when she speaks.
They have wanted to take this country and put it into the sewer for many, many years and I don’t think that money is a prime objective lately. Control certainly is.
They despise the people, the flag and every good thing this great nation stands for or represents. The venom that comes out of these people's mouths, since the election, just makes me look at them in amazement. But then, they were like that BEFORE the election, it's just now coming to light. They've had dark souls for many years.
And what about Russia and Putin? Why are they so prominent, in the election to begin with, and every day since? Don’t ever forget that America represents Jacob and Russia represents Esau. Those two souls that our Father said would be the leaders of two great nations: America and Russia:
Ref: Genesis 25:23 And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
Ref: Genesis 25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
Ref: Genesis 25:25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. KJV
This is so obviously a pointer to Russia that a blind person could see it. I’ve written about this extensively but some of that work may have been lost when I transitioned to the new editor so I’ll make an effort to either restore that work or create something new.
Esau means Red. Edom means Red. The stew Esau ate was Red in color because of the spices. They settled in the land of Idumea which is southern Russia (Generally). Red is the national color of Russia. Red is the color of communism and socialism. Not the people, the government. And on and on it goes.
There is a lot happening behind the scenes in Washington and around this country right now and you had better make an effort to listen to a news site that you can trust and stay on top of it all. Stay away from sites like CNN, MSNBC, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, all those places that the progressives use to spew out their socialism. Their version of the truth.
If you want to get a different slant on what’s happening in this country, go to a foreign news website like Jerusalem Today or BBC or some Canadian sites. They don’t have an ax to grind in this country and will pretty much report SOME of the truth of it all.
There is no doubt in my mind that President Trump was placed in the Oval Office by the hand of our Father Himself.
Just read verse 21 of this book, just down the page…. he removeth kings, and setteth up kings.
Look at the breaks in national security today. Look at the traitors that are giving national secrets to the enemy. Julian Assange and Edward Snowden should be captured, blindfolded, and shot for treason. The CIA has been compromised beyond belief by the leaks that have come out.
You’d better get your head out of the sand because we are living in treacherous times right now. Today.
Enough said. I’ll get off my soap box.
Daniel 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
Man, how that must have felt to Daniel and how relieved he must have been when he woke up. It’s always a great feeling to have the faith to begin with and then have it proven to you that it was well founded.
I have experienced that a time or two and it’s a wonderful feeling. It wasn’t over some big life-changing event or anything like that but when it happens and you recognize it when it does happen, your first thought should always be to thank Him for doing that for you.
And the key words here are recognizing and thanking Him for what has happened and who was behind it. Heaven help you if you give the praise and glory to another human being. He may never interfere in your life ever again.
Daniel didn’t come up with the solution, our Father gave it to him.
Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
That’s where true wisdom comes from. You can obtain street wisdom without His help and you can get what may look like wisdom from Satan but when it comes from Satan, the result will always be a bad time for you, ultimately. True wisdom from our Father will always help you and benefit you.
Daniel 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Understanding is common sense. If you possess common sense, then God can assist you with wisdom. If you don’t have any common sense, He’s probably not going to give you much wisdom because you wouldn’t know what to do with it when you get it.
Daniel 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
If you receive these things from Him, reflect them back to the other people, always share it, don’t embellish it within yourself. If Father gives you a truth don’t put a bushel basket over it and hide it from others.
Daniel 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
Really, Father was their savior right then. They were facing death if someone didn’t come forth and give the king what he wanted, concerning this dream.
Even today, if Father doesn’t give you knowledge and wisdom to overcome the false messiah, you are in for a bad time because you’ll probably believe that the false one is the true messiah who’s come to rapture you away.
In a generation of high tech knowledge from every point, most people haven’t studied or read enough of His Word to save their very soul from spiritual destruction.
Daniel 2:24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.
Daniel says that he’s got it and he’s ready to see the king.
Daniel 2:25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
One of these children of the captivity, they’ve got it for you.
Daniel 2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
Daniel CAN but our Father accomplished it for him. Father gave the interpretation and the dream to start with. He caused these events to come to pass because it is prophesy that has to do with the end time. That’s why it’s so very important.
Daniel 2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
They can’t do it. It won’t happen.
Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
The latter days. That’s today. This generation. And who is it that reveals this information to us? Our Father.
And this is the answer.
Daniel 2:29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
The thoughts that Father put in Nebuchadnezzar’s mind, He now puts in Daniel’s mind.
Daniel 2:30 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, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
Daniel is saying that HE doesn’t have any more wisdom than anyone else in this world, but, so that the king doesn’t kill everyone in the room, Father has given the information to him.
Daniel 2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
It was a scary figure.
Daniel 2:32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
What we’re presented with are different types of metal, some precious, some not.
Daniel 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Does that sound unnatural to you? How can the feet be part IRON and part CLAY? If you put iron and clay both in a smelting furnace, the iron will melt and the clay will float to the top and run off as slag.
If you DO put these two together, the clay will certainly crumble, while the iron will not. They may STICK together but they won’t withstand any kind of pressure. Certainly, they will not hold together with the weight of the other metals on top of them.
If you look at this in a spiritual way, we could say, with certainty, that our Father and Satan won’t mix or stay together.
Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
And brake them to pieces. There you go…the clay broke into pieces. The iron will be turned into dust here shortly.
Without hands. This is a figure of speech that means that no human was involved in it. No human hands had anything to do with it.
This stone was Jesus Christ and we’ll find out what the various metals were all about in just a minute.
Daniel 2:35 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 threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
For illustration purposes, specific gravity tells us how heavy a particular metal is. The higher the specific gravity, the heavier the metal. You will notice that this statue had the heaviest metals on top and the lighter metals on the bottom, along with the clay.
Which means that the statue was destined to fall over or destroy itself because it was top-heavy and the foundation of iron and clay would not support it. Let’s just look at the specific gravity of the metals from the top down:
The higher the number, the heavier the metal or clay.
We can read about our Lord being the corner stone, which is what the stone is that was carved out, without the help of human hands, in the book of Psalms:
Ref: Psalms 118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. KJV
Ref: Psalms 118:23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. KJV
Ref: Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Ref: Psalms 118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
Ref: Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.
Ref: Psalms 118:27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar. KJV
Jesus Christ was the stone that the builders rejected. It was the corner stone of the Temple that Zerubbabel wanted to place there, the foundation stone.
And, of course, the parallel is that Christ was rejected by His people because they didn’t believe that He was the Messiah.
Messiah is the foundation laid by the Father.
This statue represents the nations of Revelation and the ten-toes representing the ten kings that Satan will bring with him.
Clay___Muslims or Muhammadeans.
Their Dome of the Rock, still standing there today, on the foundation of the 1st and 2nd Temples.
Matthew wrote of this stone and our Lord tells us it will break Satan/Antichrist into powder:
Ref: Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Ref: Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
Ref: Matthew 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. KJV
Daniel 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
This is the dream…
Daniel 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
The God of heaven gave Nebuchadnezzar his power and strength and glory. Remember Jeremiah 27:6..
Ref: Jeremiah 27:6 And now have I given all these lands unto the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him. KJV
Nebuchadnezzar his servant.
Daniel 2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
Thou art this head of gold. There it is, from our Father. Babylonia is that head.
What we should learn from this is that ‘ole Neb is a type of the king of Babylon, which in the end times, will be Satan himself. The root of the word Babylon being confusion or babel:
✡ Babylon_ OT:894 Babel (baw-bel'); from OT:1101; confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire:
And as that stone broke the foundation of the statue, so Christ will destroy the foundation that Satan/Antichrist will try to build when the archangel Michael kicks him out of heaven for his five-month time of tribulation.
Daniel 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
The 1st kingdom will be the Babylonians, represented by gold.
Gold___Babylonia or Babylon.
The 2nd kingdom after Nebuchadnezzar, represented by silver.
The 3rd kingdom that will rule is represented by brass.
The 4th kingdom will be iron.
Broken by the kingdom of our Father.
What’s being said here is that Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom will fall to Persia; Persia will fall to the Greeks, the Greeks will fall to Rome, Rome will fall to the Mohammedeans, and ALL will fall to our Father’s kingdom when Christ returns.
Daniel 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
And so it was with the Mohammedeans.
This was written long, long ago and how did things turn out? All of the kingdoms have fallen and the last, the Mohammedeans, the Muslims, have built a Muslim Shrine, The Dome of the Rock, on the very foundation where both Temples of our Father stood in earlier times.
Wow. Can you believe that? And then you look at current events of today and we see the terroristic arm of the Muslims massacring Christians in the Middle East. ALL Muslims are NOT bad people but factions like Al-Qaeda and ISIS ARE.
And they are killing Christians in the most horrendous ways: drowning them in cages put under water, decapitation, women having their chests and breasts torn by a metal claw with four prongs called the biter, men being tortured by a device called the flying carpet, a wooden board with hinges in the middle, that breaks the spine of the prisoner when bent backward.
Another method called the shebeh or ghost which hangs the prisoner by his hands for weeks on end, electric shock, prisoners made to sleep with amputated heads around them.
This is what’s happening to Christians in the Middle East while we stop at the QuikTrip for a gallon of milk on the way home from work.
Do you know where these souls are right now? Revelation tells us:
Ref: Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: KJV
These are the souls that Christ will bring with Him when He returns.
And some of us go to church every Sunday morning and listen to and believe in, some religious garbage about flying away or some kind of rapture. This is what our Lord died on the cross for?
Daniel 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
Kingdom shall be divided: good fig, bad fig. This is a mixture that will not gel.
Daniel 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
Basically, this image is representing mighty nations that will all fall over time. Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome…and it all has to do with conquering Israel but the stone will bring it all back together in the heavenly era.
This will make better sense if one is familiar with world and ancient history.
Now, what happens?
Daniel 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men:
What the heck does that mean.. they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men?
“I thought we were talking about men with ruling kingdoms and all that.”
These ten leaders, or ten toes of the statue, will not be earthly kings but fallen angels. If they’re coming with Satan when he is expelled from heaven, and since flesh and blood cannot enter into the kingdom of our Father, they HAVE to be spiritual.
They have to be a part of the 7000 fallen angels that will come with Satan. That’s why 1st Corinthians is so important:
Ref: 1st Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. KJV
These fallen angels will be coming back to do the same thing that they were doing in the days of Noah. They were taking the daughters of Adam and having sexual relations with them, or another way of putting it, taking them to marriage, because that’s what is done in a marriage.
Ref: Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Ref: Matthew 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, KJV
The foolishness that some churches teach, that women should wear something on their head when they enter such a building, is where that misconstrued idea comes from.
But they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
They can’t build on it because God rejects it. He did it before with the flood, this time with the STONE.
Daniel 2:44 And 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.
The one-world system that Satan/Antichrist puts together will be destroyed, broken in pieces, and HIS kingdom will reign forever and ever.
It is really a sad thing that probably 99% of people walk around every day and have no idea how much the spiritual world is in action around them. Some people will read this and call it a bunch of hogwash. Religious junk.
No eyes and no ears.
Boy, are they going to be surprised one day. Take the time today to read this Letter that He sent us, it contains a whole world of information. Study it every day because you can’t take it all in, in one day, it takes a lifetime of reading and studying.
Israel rejected that stone, don’t you do it too.
Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands,
Man didn’t have anything to do with it, that’s what without hands means. Humans didn’t have any part in it.
and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
The fact that the stone was seen by their eyes as it was cut out of the mountain was proof to Nebuchadnezzar that the God of Daniel was real and that his kingdom and the others after would fall. He had been presented with the future.
Father is always true and honest. Something that you can count on.
Daniel 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
Nebuchadnezzar was worshipping our Father in the person of Daniel because he knew that it was not Daniel that interpreted the dream, but Him.
Daniel 2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
The king answered unto Daniel. Probably means that Daniel refused the offer of an oblation and sweet odors.
Because Daniel could do this it became apparent to Neb that the God of Daniel is the true God.
This is why in the 4th chapter you’re going to see Neb converted and he himself will write one of the most beautiful prayers to God that you will read in the Word of God.
Daniel 2:48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
Be wiser than the serpent. God will give you that wisdom. Daniel is now 2nd in command to the king.
Daniel 2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king. KJV
Judgment takes place in the gate of the king.
A lot of people work night and day to achieve greatness and wealth. Not only do they have to worry about how to keep and maintain all that they posses, they have to keep looking behind to see who is plotting to take it all away.
A man that labors ever day, driving the same old pickup truck, sleeps well every night. No one tries to take away what he has.
And if you love and follow our Father while doing it, so much better is the sleep because the rewards to come are so much greater.
