The Statue Dream In the beginning of Daniel's writings, while the Israelites were being held captive in Babylon, Daniel was given the interpretation of the king's dream. The dream was of a statue, which symbolizes empires that would be on this earth until the end of the age.
Daniel's interpretation was:
Daniel 2:31-36 You, O king, were looking and behold, there was a single great statue; that statue, which was large and of extraordinary splendor, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was awesome. The head of that statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay, and crushed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
2:39 And after you
there will arise another kingdom inferior to you, then another third
kingdom of bronze, which will rule over all the earth.
· The Head- Babylon, under Nebuchadnezzar the Chaldean.
· Upper Body and Arms- Media-Persia, under Darius the Mede and Cyrus the Persian.
· Belly and Thighs- Greece, under Alexander the Great. (thighs - Seleucus (Babylonia) and Ptolemy, (Egypt)
· Legs and Feet- The last days beast and 10 Toes – the revived empire
This statue is symbolic of the time from Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon, in 607 BC, to the last Empire of this age, the Gog Empire that brings on the last war of this age. Each of these empires have, or will have in the future, conquered Israel. It is the struggle over Israel (Jerusalem) that will bring about all the end time events that, in turn, will bring this age to an end.
Jesus, as the stone not made without human hands, and will be the one to destroy this last Empire by crumbling the feet of the statue on the last day..
As I was studying about the first three empires of the statue dream I noticed a common thread.
King Nebuchadnezzar ruled over his lands and Israel from the city of Babylon. The Media-Persians set up kings to rule over Israel from the city of Babylon, as we see from the book of Daniel. Alexander the Great moved to the city of Babylon and made it his capitol city in the east. Most people don't know that Alexander fell in love with the city of Babylon and moved there to rule his kingdom from there. He died there, and his empire was split up between his generals. Two became very powerful. The king in the North, which was Seleucus, and the king in the South, which was Ptolemy. Seleucus built a new city in the land of Babylon called Seleucia, just 40 miles from the city of Babylon which now lay in ruin, and from there he rued over Israel. The Seleucid, Northern kingdom, included not only the Babylon area but also Syria, which is located directly North of Israel. Seleucus is sometimes called the King of Syria, because he had a second palace there. But He ruled from his capital city that lay between the two rivers in the Iraq area. Babylon and all the following empires that occupied that area attacked Israel from the North and that is what all these visions are really about. In fact many of the battles took place in the same northern valley in Israel that will be the place of the final battle called Armageddon.
These empires are consecutive and so it has been thought that Rome was the legs and feet and will be the revived empire in the end days. However, Rome did not rule over Israel from the Babylonian area. They weren't the next empire to conquer King Neb’s old empire. And this is something I hope to prove to you as we continue in this study.
Further along in this study, in the King of the North time-line in Daniel 11, I will be matching scripture with history about these kingdoms represented in the statue dream. The last King of the North of the time-line prophecy is the empire of the feet and 10 toes of the statue dream. It will come out of the dust of the Northern Grecian kingdom of Seleucus (in the same northern lands of Syria and Iraq and will be the revived empire, a caliphate, revived from the first Caliphate set up in Iraq/Syria area. This Caliphate, like the former one, will lead all radical Islamics in an attack against Israel. I believe this is also the one God calls Gog.Home page
