* Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and the interpretation thereof*
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.
*(hereafter)= end timesBut 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.
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.
This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
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.
*the stone that was cut out without hands is CHRIST. The stone of Israel (Genesis 49:24)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.
So by this time line we know that this dream was of the end times.
*GOD’S KINGDOMThis is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
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.
And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
* notice that all the kingdom’s rule the whole earth/world.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 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.
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.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
* these are the fallen angels. As in the days of Noah. ( but spiritually not physically)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.
* GOD’S KINGDOM*Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain (of GOD) without hands, 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.
*specific gravity of Gold = 19.3
*specific gravity of Silver = 10.51
*specific gravity of Brass = 8.5
*specific gravity of Iron = 7.6
*specific gravity of Clay = 1.9
From this we can see that the beast/image in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream is top heavy and divided at the feet making it unstable.
This beast image starts as history and ends in the future with Nebuchadnezzar as the head of gold as the king of Babylon.
1. Gold = The Babylonian Empire
2. Silver = The Medo-Persian Empire
3. Brass = The Grecian Empire
4. Iron = The Roman Empire
5. Iron & Clay = Mohmmedan power from 636 A.D. until 1948 A.D.
* Now! Today!
6. The good and bad figs (Jeremiah 24) Since May 15, 1948 until now. On their flag is a 6 pointed star.
7. Antichrist. (satan himself comes disguised as Christ and will stand in Jerusalem claiming to be God) Daniel 9:27.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
8. After the millennium satan will be loosed for a short season to deceive whoever he can and sadly there will be as the sands of the sea then he will goeth into perdition.
*Nebuchadnezzar’s beast image is all of satan’s beast government structure that will merge together in the end times.
It’s top heavy so when CHRIST the stone of Israel returns and smashes it. It’s gonna be a great fall!!
For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.
Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
