Many are looking for a new world order, or world government to take over, but as usual they are all looking the wrong direction. In this final episode the final world government will be revealed. Learn how and when this is set to take place. This is the last in this series of Daniel Unsealed. http://www.danielunsealed.com youtube
The climax of the prophecy is here brought to view. When the History of nations is considered it is very clear that kingdoms come and Kingdoms go. But here is presented a Kingdom that will not be destroyed.
The reason for this is found in the next verse. “Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands”. In view of the fact that it was cut out without hands is the reason given that it will never be destroyed. What is this stone and what is meant that it is cut out without hands? Jesus Christ when speaking to the Jews, tells us what this crushing stone is.
Luke 20:17 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
Luke 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Speaking to the Jews again Jesus, tells us what it means to be cut out without hands.
Mark 14:58 … I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
In this statement that Jesus made he was speaking about the temple of his body.
John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
John 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
The meaning then is clear. With hands means the thing is accomplished through a human agency without hands means through supernatural.
This is further proven in the book of Hebrews.
Hebrews 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Moses Built the Hebrew sanctuary with all its offerings and ceremonies and all of this was done through the human agency but When Christ went to heaven after his resurrection he entered into the heavenly sanctuary and that is referred to as not being made with hands. In other word there was no human input into the building of it.
The mountain that was the origin of the stone is recorded in Hebrews 12:22
Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
Therefore this stone that is cut out without hands refers to resurrected glorified Christ who will Leave the Heavenly City know as Mount Zion, return to earth in a physical literal and visible manner as King and Ruler of the World.
This stone is not any particular church or religious organisation because these are all administered my Human beings. It is important to note that this final and everlasting dominion is set up without human power or help. No Human agency is responsible for the stone being cut out of the mountain nor responsible for it being hurled with great force against the image. The setting up of this everlasting kingdom and the destruction of earthly dominions are accomplished by Jesus Christ Himself.
The timing of the setting up of the final Kingdom is clearly indicated, although no exact time is given a waymark is clearly layout before us.
Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed
The plurality of kings here mentioned refers to the division made after the fall of the Roman Empire in 476AD. We are currently still living in this euorpean division and therefore are living in the days of these kings or Kingdoms. So the Kingdom that is yet to be realised is to be done so during the existence of the various nations of Europe not before any one world government comes to fruition.
Now some may say that the Kingdom was realised during the first advent of Jesus Christ.
Christ plainly taught that His Kingdom was still future when he had the last supper with his Disciples.
Luke 22:17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
Luke 22:18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
Again Christ did not set up this Kingdom before His Ascension
Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
Also Christ did not teach us something to pray for that was already fulfilled when he said pray “Thy Kingdom Come thy will be done”
The Bible teaches that this kingdom is a matter of promise to the believer in Christ
James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
And it was told us in the scriptures that it would be set up when Christ Shall judge the living and the dead.
2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
So some may ask what Kingdom was realised when Christ first came to earth? There are two types of Kingdoms brought to light in the Bible. The Kingdom of Grace and the Kindom of Glory one is current and the other is future. This is simply shown by the text in Heb were we shall come boldly to the throne of Grace, this is present tense the other is mentioned in Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
And this is future. A throne implies a Kingdom and so the Kingdom of Grace was realised during Jesus first advent and the Kindom of Glory will be realised at his 2nd advent.
The prophecy tells us that during the existence of the various nations of Europe that Jesus Christ Himself will set up a kingdom it will not be left in the hands of a Church or a organisation or a board of directors or any representative, Christ Himself personally will administer this Kingdom.
It also tells us that when He comes the Nations of this world will be destroyed.
This is the time when all wickedness and evil will cease to rule our world. Looking at the History of the World as we have done there has only been war bloodshed and wickedness and mankind does not have the capacity to develop a righteous kingdom in this world.
At the time of the the destruction of the nations – Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome will loose all of the legacy they have left behind and it is then that the Gold and Silver brass and Iron will cease exsist in all things.
Daniel 2:35 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 threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them.
While Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome do not have dominion, what they have done while they had dominion is still present in our world today.
Babylon the source of cultic religion and spiritualism is alive and well today.
Persia that pioneered the principle of rulership through global economy and worldwide trade is also very prominent today.
Greece introduce philosophy and mind culture coupled with sports and Olympic games that has never been lost in our world.
Rome with the principles of and Iron government clothed in the garb of democracy and republicanism is also alive and well today.
However When Christ comes all this this the Gold and Silver Brass and Iron will all be destroyed and forgotten in the kingdom to come.
After the nations have been blown away and the earth has been cleaned from thir exsistance Then mount Zion will fill the whole earth
Daniel 2:35 … and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
God as made a guarantee that that which is yet to take place is sure to happen and the prophecy is true and faithful. Daniel give this guarantee to the King of Babylon
If the Prophecy has been accurate for thousands of years it would be very unwise to dismiss the last part of the prophecy as untrue. A prophecy in psalms give us good instruction as to this last part to the prophecy of Daniel 2
Psa 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
Psa 118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
The centre verse of the king james bible is, Psalms 118:8… it is better to trust in the lord than to put confidence in man.
God Loves and want you to have an expected End, unlike all the nations before us, we need to take heed to the warning.
