Matt. 24:15 Jesus directs our attention to the book of Daniel to help us further understand
where we are in the stream of time.
Daniel 12:4 In the time of the end knowledge would be increased. The book of Daniel was
specifically written for the “latter days.”
Isa. 46:9, 10 Only God can declare the “end from the beginning” and, therefore, accurately
tell the future.
Amos 3:7 God reveals His secrets to His servants, the prophets.
Daniel 1:1–21 The book of Daniel begins with Daniel and his three faithful friends
demonstrating their faithfulness to the true God. Thus God honored them
highly. The theme of the book of Daniel is about true vs. false worship.
READ ALL OF DANIEL 2
vs. 1 King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream he can't remember.
vs. 19 God revealed the dream to His prophet Daniel.
vs. 28, 29 The dream shows what would happen in the latter days of earth’s history.
vs. 31–36 Four metals: Gold, Silver, Brass, Iron—representing four kingdoms of Babylon,
Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.
vs. 41, 42 The fourth kingdom (Rome) would divide into many parts like the feet and the
toes on the image; some of the divisions would be strong, others weak.
NOTE: This dividing of Rome took place between A.D. 351 and 476. The most
recognized and basic divisions of the Roman empire were: Alemanni
(Germany); Visigoths (Spain); Franks (France); Suevi (Portugal); Burgundians
(Swiss); Anglo Saxon (English) Lombards (Italy); Heruli (destroyed in 493);
Vandals (destroyed in 534); Ostrogoths (destroyed in 538).
vs. 43 “They shall not cleave one to another.” Here God predicts that throughout
history, these 10 kingdoms will never again become one nation.
vs. 44, 45 In the days of these kings, God will set up His kingdom. The great Rock that
smashes the image, reducing it to powder, represents the coming of Jesus
Christ, which will bring the destruction of all earthly kingdoms and
governments and the set up God’s eternal kingdom (Matt. 21:42–44).
Rev. 21:1–5 A picture of the new heavenly kingdom.
