Daniel Interprets King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

Watering the Garden


But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter daysThy dream, and the visions of the head upon thy bed, are these; As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon they bed, what should come to pass hereafter; and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass. 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. 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 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 break them to pieces. 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 smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. This 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. 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 burse. 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. 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. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain 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. (Daniel 2:28-45)

Babylon’s King Nebuchadnezzar was given a dream from God which included the end times that the king did not understand. Daniel was given the ability by God to interpret that dream for him. In the dream it is indicated that in the end times the world kingdoms would be part iron and part clay, or possibly part weak, part strong and that, “They” shall mingle themselves with the seed of men. “They” may be those angels that are kicked out of heaven, along with Satan. Iron and clay do not mix.
In the end God will topple all kingdoms and will sit up a non-ending kingdom with the stone cut out of the mountain without hands. We find in Psalms 118:22-23 that stone is Jesus Christ, “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
(The kingdoms described in the above scriptures are believed to be, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, and in 636 AD until today, the Mohammed Kingdom.)

In the end times, the “powers that be” will not mix very well, but God is going to topple all kingdoms by his son Jesus Christ and set up an eternal kingdom.

Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.
