On the cover … Daniel

On the cover … Daniel 2 NLT (The Statue) 32 The head of the statue was made of fine gold. Its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs were bronze, 33 its legs were iron, and its feet were a combination of iron and baked clay. Daniel's interpretation in the bible indicates that the statue represented four different kingdoms that were to follow after king Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom, Babylon. These are the kingdoms that ruled with pagan principles. The film details these kingdoms as follows: - Head of gold: Kingdom of Babylon - Silver chest & arms: Kingdom of Medo-Persia - Belly & thighs of bronze : Kingdom of Greece - Legs of Iron : Kingdom of Rome/Roman Empire - Feet mixed with iron & clay : Roman Empire divided into two areas of ruling (East & West), now called Europe. The Empire was further divided into ten tribes represented by ten countries in Europe. (Note: Two feet with ten toes). The ten countries/Tribes are German; Swiss; French; Italians; English; Portuguese; Spanish; and three others that became extinct (Heruli; Ostrogoths & Vandals) 22

On the cover … Daniel 2:43 As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. The Roman Empire tried to fix the division, however, did not succeed. Then, the alliance, government (iron) and church (clay) was formed as prophesied and became the ruling power at the feet of the pagan ruling power (the statue). These feet represented the Roman church, a mixture of paganism and Christianity. This authority was now led by Constantine, who was also the 1 st Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. The iron in the feet represents Rome (political power with pagan principles). The clay represents the church. This resulting in The Papacy kingdom, the Roman church with a political, civil and ecclesiastic power, with the Bishop of Rome (the Pope) as the head of all churches. - The rock (which destroyed the statue): The Kingdom of God And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever … Daniel 2:44 You will notice that the bible talks about these kingdoms coming into power all the way from the ruling of king Nebuchadnezzar to the crucifixion of Christ by the divided Roman Empire. From the time of the Apostles of Christ being baptised in the Holy Spirit, the Kingdom of God started to grow enormously till today. It is also important to note that the book of Daniel was written by Daniel (except Daniel 4 by king Nebuchadnezzar), 600 years before the time of Christ. Therefore, these kingdoms continued in power for 600 years before Christ. April 2018 23
