Okay, so I read Daniel chapter 2...about the big statue and the rock and everything. And I looked at the chart too, hehe.
So here's what I think:
The Gold Head is Babylon...obviously.
The Silver is the Persians.
The Brass is Greece...which DID rule over all of the civilized world as people knew it.
The Iron is Rome...obviously, lolz.
This all has come to pass.
What has not come to pass.
I believe that the feet and the toes kingdoms have not yet come to pass. It is possible that the feet mixed with iron and fired clay are the Islamic nations of today. They are together in fighting against the rest of the world, but by themselves, they don't get along all that well. Just a thought.
As for the ten toes, those are the ten kingdoms that can also be found in Revelation chapter 17 verses 12-14.
"The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful."
Daniel also talks about the Stone cut out from the mountain smashing the statue on it's feet. I believe at the end of times that the ten kingdoms in Revelation are the same in Daniel, and these kingdoms will war against the Lamb (as it says in Revelation) and the Lamb is the Rock and will crush them.
Of course, I can't be 100% sure...it hasn't come to pass yet, lol. But I do know the ten kingdoms are not the ones listed on the chart, as these kingdoms did not war against the Lamb as depicted in Revelation and they were not all at once and they were not all crushed by the Lamb (or His people).
That should open a discussion, [evil laugh].
alright i finally got around to reading daniel 2, and i haven't looked at the chart... but i agree with doctorbug. the only thing i think is that the 10 kingdoms are the united nations.
half.note: you haven't replied to "another thread for half.note" in awhile. have you not watched the remaining of the video?
I'll be following this study loosely, I might give an opinion here or there but I think you know my position on scripture so I'm going to try and force myself not to derail a thread for once :P
Don't have time right now, but I would really appreciate some more opinions before I comment.
ANY OTHER THOUGHTS OUT THERE??
I have been ridiculously busy the last couple weeks with school and the farm and everything else going on, so I've barely been on TI. I did read it though!
Will try to post my thoughts/comments soon, but no promises.
All right. The gold head is Babylon. The silver is the Persians. The brass is Greece. The iron is Rome. I'm not really sure about the ten kingdoms. It says they're like Rome, but weaker, and that they're divided. I originally thought that the kingdoms were different religious groups that split up after Rome fell, but that wouldn't really make sense if God broke their religions/beliefs. So I'm not really sure what the ten kingdoms are.
Weelll...it says in Revelation 17 that 10 kings will rule with the beast for one hour...and the beast hasn't come yet.
But anyways, my computer has been giving me a conniption fit and I need to get a system restore disk for it. Unfortunately, I probably won't get that for a week. So I won't be around much in the following days...sorry :(
