Daniels vision of the history of civilization

Daniels vision of the history of civilization Posted by Hello
All of histories major kingdoms were predicted by Daniel over 2000 years ago.

Babylon (golden head), Medo Persian (silver chest), Greece (bronze) and Rome (iron legs) today's EU are the ten toes of iron and clay mixed. He gives an accurate succession these world realms. In the book Daniel is called it:
"the head was from pure gold, the chest and the arms was from silver, belly and hips was from bronze, the legs from iron and the feet partly from iron, partly from clay." (Dan. 2:32 33)
Once again the Bible is the only holy book to consistantly predict the future. God, in the bible tells us this is how to know he is truly God. Peter called prophecy a light shining in a dark place.
Here it is from the bible:
Daniel 2:31-47 "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.
32 "The head of that statue [was made] of fine gold, its breast and its
arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze,
33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
34 "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.
35 "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.
36 "This [was] the dream; now we shall tell its interpretation before the king.
37 "You, O king, are the king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given
the kingdom, the power, the strength, and the glory;
38 and wherever the sons of men dwell, [or] the beasts of the field, or the
birds of the sky, He has given [them] into your hand and has caused you to
rule over them all. You are the head of gold.

(This head was Babylon the worlds first great empire, they collected all
taxes in gold and had gold everywhere in the kingdom)

39 "And after you there will arise another kingdom inferior to you,

(the arms of silver, {they used silver a lot in their kingdom} the medes
and the persians. By the way the bible predicted cyrus {by name} would
come and take over babylon even though Cyrus was not even born yet)

another third kingdom of bronze,

(this is the greeks, who used bronze weapons)

which will rule over all the earth.

40 "Then there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron
crushes and shatters all things, so, like iron that breaks in pieces, it
will crush and break all these in pieces.

(this is rome that broke up into two empires, rome and constantinople. They also used iron weapons)

41 "And in that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and
partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the
toughness of iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with common clay.
42 "And [as] the toes of the feet [were] partly of iron and partly of
pottery, [so] some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be


(this is rome re-born, most likely the EU who recently signed their
constitution on the hill that rome ruled from for centuries)

43 "And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine
with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one
another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.
44 "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom
which will never be destroyed, and [that] kingdom will not be left for
another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it
will itself endure forever. (this is christs kingdom)
45 "Inasmuch as you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without
hands and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and
the gold, the great God has made known to the king what will take place in
the future; so the dream is true, and its interpretation is trustworthy."
46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face and did homage to Daniel, and
gave orders to present to him an offering and fragrant incense.
47 The king answered Daniel and said, "Surely your God is a God of gods and
a Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, since you have been able to
reveal this mystery."
