Prophecy points to a fulfillment of Daniel’s pivotal prophecy and the soon coming of the Kingdom of God.
[Gary Petty] We just finished recording a Beyond Today program on the image of Daniel 2. And this is one of the charts that we use – we’re using a number of different charts, but this one really shows and gives us an understanding of what the image of Daniel 2 is all about. We see that the image that was given to Nebuchadnezzar in his dream – and Daniel of course came along and gave him an explanation of the head, the chest and arms, the belly and thighs, and these legs of iron and feet of iron and clay.
And we show through the program – we invite you to be sure and see this program when it’s on – that what he was talking about is the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, the Greek Empire, and the Roman Empire. And of course we can see that these empires have actually happened during the course of history, which inspires us, because we can look back and see, wow, these prophecies took place. But this prophecy also reaches out into the future and it’s going to predict some of the headlines in the news that you and I are going to see in the near future. And that involves the rise of ten toes that are ten kings that are part of the Roman Empire.
So what we know from this is that there’s going to be an attempt to restore the Roman Empire. And this is very important because when this happens, this is when Jesus Christ returns, which is the stone cut out to become a mountain and sets up God’s kingdom on this earth. So we invite you to be sure and watch this program when it comes out in a little bit. It’s on the image of Daniel 2.
