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 bruise. 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.(Daniel 2:40-41)
The Tsunami of third world peoples, mostly Muslim, into first world areas such as the European Union, Great Britain, and both North and South America is a surreal phenomenon, perhaps unmatched in its scope and potential damage in history.
Irrevocable harm is being done to the formerly Christian West as her institutions of welfare, charity, medicine, law and order, and her civil society are all being pushed, drawn on and even ravaged beyond their intended limits by the swarms of “Muslim refugees” are released into these once civilized and orderly societies.
Hordes of Muslim young men, literally disembark off of the trains that brought them into the Western host countries, and into beautiful and historic cities such as Paris, Cologne, Stockholm, London and Amsterdam and without hesitation begin raping, robbing and and assaulting boys, girls, men, women,the old, infirm, and even the sick!
This catastrophic nightmare, brought to you and me by many converging factors which we will discuss in the days ahead; the sickness called multiculturalism, The disillusion of the effects of the World Wars 1 and 2, the sickness of our societies, the loss and abandonment of Christian faith in the public square, the ever remote “ruling elite”(The Kings of the Earth and their rulers) who seek to minimize any remaining Christian influence in western societies, the power of bribery at the hands of Arab princes, as well as Anti-Semitism.
But it is comforting to know that this nightmare is not something random that came out of the blue, for the Biblical prophets predicted these things. More than 2,500 years ago during the Babylonian captivity of the Jews, a pagan King, Nebuchadnezzar, had a dream of the future history of the nations of the world which would dominate Israel, until the very last days and the coming of the Lard to judge the world in Righteousness and establish the Kingdom of God over all of the earth.
Four Kingdoms would rise, to dominate the chosen people in turn, two eastern and two western powers. These are the entities which Jesus reffered to when he spoke of “the times of the Gentiles. First would rise Babylon, then Persia, followed by Greece, and then Rome would dominate, all the way until the time of the end.
There would be several phases to the Roman Kingdom. At first there would be two legs, and it would be as strong as Iron, breaking every challenger in pieces.History verifies that Rome was powerful, militaristic, aggressive and imperial.
The prophecy predicts that the last Empire would go through a long “Two legged” phase. Centuries later, true to the prophecy, the Roman empire split into an Eastern and Western section, the eastern capitol being Constantinople(Now Istanbul) and the Western in Rome.
After the collapse of Imperial Rome in 456 ad, and the fall of Constantinople in the 15th century, the Roman system became Western and eastern Christendom, headed by Popes in the west and Metroplitans in the east. There was ‘the Holy Roman empire” and the Byzantine empire, until the modern nation states,(still the heirs of ancient Rome) arose in western Europe, and which pretty much came to prevail in the world, colonizing much of it.
Out of those colonies arose the nations of North and South America, and Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, all very much the heirs of the Roman empire.
The Jews languished in exile throughout both “legs” of the Roman empire, enduring alternating periods of tolerance, pogram, persecution, and then renewed tolerance throughout the eastern an western “legs” of the Roman empire.
Eventually the two legs of Nebuchadnezar’s vision morphed into recent bi-polar world of Western power versus the Soviet sphere of influence, until that bi-polar tension collapsed, in the fall of the old Soviet system.
According to the prophecy, the “two legs” will become ten toes, then the iron,(the strength and superiority) of the last phase of the Roman empire, is severely weakened, being mixed with clay.Iron and clay don’t really bind, thus the iron is weakened.
The former Roman empire is weakened at the time of the end, by being “Mixed”, literally “Arav”, in the Hebrew language, or Arabized in our vernacular.
I believe that the illogical and irrational admission of millions of Arabs, who refuse to acculturate ( let alone work) is the possible fulfillment of the prophecy given to Nebuchadnezzar, and interpreted by Daniel. I see hope in the horrors of the inundation of the once powerful western world, with millions of Arabs, because I know the “time of the gentiles” is coming to an end, and soon the Rock made without human hands shall descend from heaven to smash the idolatrous Kingdoms of this World.
Come quickly ,Jesus!
