|Daniel 2:41-45 The 5th And Final Earthly Kingdom And God's Kingdom Which Will Finally Be Established Forever|
Daniel 2:41-46 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.
Nebuchadnezzar's dream foretold all the kingdoms that would follow Babylon right down to the present. A little stone was cut out of the mountain and the stone grew and struck the image on the feet and destroyed all it's rulership and authority. It ground the image to powder and swept all of this out of the way by the wind of the Spirit of God.
Daniel 2:34-35 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 brake 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 threshingfloors; 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.
When the Kingdom of God is established in the earth, this will be a great era of peace what nations will beat their spears and swords into plowshares and pruninghooks and they won't make war during this time. All of human effort to create peace has resulted in frustration and more wars than ever. The wars become more terrible and the weapons of war become more awful, but peace escapes them. The Secularists, who hate God, protest in the streets. They form organizations like the League of Nations and the United Nations to make peace, and those organizations are used, by evil men, to bring oppression and to steal, lie, and deceive the nations.
And peace will escape the worldly systems. Peace will come to the earth when the Prince of Peace begins His reign through His sanctified saints. All of this is also predicted in Isaiah 2:2-4, Micah 4:1-5, and Philippians 2:10-11.
This is an era of liberty. During this time, the entire creation will be released from bondage and decay. We can't know, there is no way to observe, what life will be like in the Kingdom or what life was like before the fall. Scientists, with all their presuppositions (which are based on a combination of their observations of the fallen world and the imaginations of their fallen minds) have placed limitations on God. This is not to say that anyone can place any limitations on God, but, in their minds, they have placed limitations on God. God is not limited by the imaginations of the human mind. He will have a Kingdom and a restoration. We cannot imagine. Indeed, God asks us not to try to imagine, but to receive the vision that only He can give.
A brother writes the following: I awoke one morning at about 4 AM with a strange feeling. I could feel an awesome presence in the room with me, whether in a dream or awake, I do not know, but I could sense the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It seemed that I was at the edge of the universe. I saw a curtain at the edge of the stars and I could not see beyond it. Then the curtains parted and I could see beyond the stars. It was empty and dark with wisps of white here and there throughout the empty space. I wondered at this and as in answer to my silent question I heard a voice say, "I am not finished yet". I can understand to some degree what Paul meant when he was caught away in the Spirit... I do not understand fully the whole meaning of this experience, but this one thing I know, that God is eternally progressive. He is not finished creating but is ever progressing. I am aware that God is constant, He is the same yesterday, today and forever, He does not change but is ever the same. His eternal purpose is unchanging and He is establishing an eternal kingdom which shall never pass away. He is calling out a people for His name, and He is bringing to birth children of God who are maturing into mature sons of God who shall bring deliverance to the whole of creation. We have a never-ending God who is ever increasing a universe that has no end. We are entering into the fullness of God's creation. It has been in God's mind from the beginning and will not change, but line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, God's eternal purpose will come into being. I lay awake for some time and wondered what all this might mean. A word came to mind. It was a word that I had heard of but was not fully aware of the meaning. The word was 'epiphany'. ..
