THE DREAM OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR, The Beginning and End of the of Gentile Dominion. Daniel 2 & 7
 
Nebuchadnezzar's dream, as interpreted by Daniel, but given to Daniel by God, gives the course and end of the times of the Gentiles.
 
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword (Word of God), and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
 
The last generation of the Gentiles Nation was fulfilled May 14, 1948  - 6th kingdom
 
The Gentile world-empires. This was and is Satan's power structure from beginning to end.
 
We're talking about the place, not the people which is in Jerusalem
 
Daniel 2:29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
 
What was Nebuchadnezzar dream about?
 
 kingdoms & Kings setup in Jerusalem until Christ return
 
Daniel 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
 
Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these.
 
Nebuchadnezzar was not the first king; but he was the "head" or beginning of Gentile dominion in the earth when Israel had been "removed" (according to Jeremiah 15:4; 24:9; 29:18)
 
Daniel 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
  • Thus linking on this chapter of momentous prophecy with Daniel1, which is pure history.
  • The second year: 495 B.C. (Daniel eighteenth year).
  • Therefore Jehoiakim's fifth year, the year of the burning of the roll which marked the official rejection of God. Hence Nebuchadnezzar's dream.
  • Daniel was in Babylon and writes from that standpoint.
  • The supposed difficulty is a proof of genuineness; for the writer would have been a fool as well as a forger to have left it unexplained.
  • Nebuchadnezzar was troubled because the dream had frightened him.
2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
  • You'll get a glimpse of their religion here.
  • The magicians supposedly drove away evil demons and bad spirit; the astrologers looked into the future by planets, gods, etc; and the sorcerers means wizard, they would dreamed up more or less what ever they wished.
  • Sorcerers = Sorcery = Of evil spirits, or the power of commanding evil spirits; magic; necromancy; witchcraft; enchantment
  • They were all Chaldeans.
  • This tells us of the religious system of Babylonia, of which subsequent Jewish commentators and Greek translators would know little or nothing.
  • There were six classes of the Chaldean priesthood.
3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
  • The king dream, his spirit trouble him
4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
  • The book of Daniel up to and including the word "Syriack" was written in Hebrew.
  • The words from "O King" to the end of the seventh chapter were written in Aramaic, or Chaldean, of which there were five dialects.
  • What does this mean?
  • Merely that the Israelites were taken into captivity, and they dropped their own language.
  • This is symbolic of the fact that they were under captivity from chapters two through seven.
  • The writing then is in Aramaic, a Gentile language.
  • Thus we begin the reign of the Gentile.
  • The Syriack and Chaldeans are properly Western and Eastern Aramaic.
5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
  • The thing was the dream
  • Gone from me, referring to the forgotten dream
  • Cut ... made a dunghill
  • A further mode of punishment, from the Medo-Persians, in Dan 6:7.
  • That was quite a shock to the Chaldeans.
  • Not only were they required to interpret, but also to know the dream itself.
  • Absolutely no person could do this.
  • Not even Daniel, without God's help.
  • But remember in Daniel 1:17, God had already given Daniel special knowledge of dreams and visions.
6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
  • Rewards = a present
7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.

8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.
  • The king saying, You're stalling.
  • Gain the time = gain time. It may have reference to that day being an unlucky day.
9 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.
  • Note, the king realized the lying and corrupt things put before him.
  • This can be compared to the falsehoods put out today by the king of Babylon, even within the Churches.
  • This is not only history of long ago, but it is repeated by current events of our day.
  • What do you think has happen today, with the so called rapture theory?
  • How many people have read the book, The Incredible Cover-up by Dave MacPherson, Learn where the rapture theory came from, In 1830 Margaret MacDonald, speaking in tongues, announced the "revelation" that the true church would be caught up (rapture) to heaven before the tribulation and before Christ's return. She said, there was great darkness and error about it.
10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
  • They're telling the king he's asking an impossibility.
11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
  • They held that there were gods who dwelt in men.
  • But these were beyond mortal men altogether
  • They have almost come to the right conclusion.
  • The truth comes not form gods, but from God.
  • That is where the answer is.
  • He is the One that has, and is, the answer to all things.
12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
  • Wise men: the members of all the classes collectively, mentioned in Dan 2:2 above. Chaldee. chakam, denoting acquired wisdom.
  • All the wise, of course, included Daniel.
13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.
  • All the wise men of Babylon, went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel
  • Fellows = companions.
14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:
  • Guard = executioners.
  • Arioch means venerable or respected
  • Arioch = an ancient Babylonian name, preserved and handed down from Genesis 14:1 = Iri-Aku
  • I mention this so you will see the quality of the names of these people put over Daniel, indicating the treatment he was receiving in captivity.
  • God protected the Israelites through these ten days the same as He will protect you during your ten days tribulation.
  • Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
15 He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.

16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.
  • Give him time = appoint him a time.
  • Daniel went in, he would shew the king the interpretation of the dream
  • Daniel was attempting a great deal, but remember God had already prepared him with an understanding of dreams and visions.
17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
  • Daniel = God is my Judge
  • Hananiah = Jah is gracious; or, graciously given by Jah.
  • Mishael = who is (or is as) El?
  • Azariah = helped of Jah, or Jah has helped.
18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
  • Their lives were at stake, but the point I want you to realize is this.
  • Daniel had split his group from the Chaldeans here, but both fractions had to come to one agreement, or to one truth, to save them all, in a sense.
  • The fact is, there is only one truth..God's Truth.
  • Of = from before.
19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
  • God told Daniel the meaning of the dream
  • Never cease from thanking God when He does something for you.
  • Thank Him and He continue to bless you.
20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
  • For ever and ever = from age to age.
  • Always ask God for understanding and wisdom
21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
  • It is from God that these things flow.
  • It is for this purpose that we study and research, and pray for wisdom and knowledge which brings truth and peace of mind.
  • Daniel is giving God all the credit.
  • He was humble before God
22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
  • Satan's the prince of night.
  • God has called you to be a child of light.
  • Your light will show up the working of Satan and His children.
  • Revelation 8:12 Explaining the 4th trump
23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
  • If God haven't given Daniel the interpretation, they wouldn't be here
24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
  • How did Arioch know this?
26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
  • Remember, Belteshazzar means protect his life, O Bel.
  • Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
 
28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
  • Maketh = hath made.
  • Daniel answered, there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets.
  • Make special note of the phrase, in the latter days.
  • This is prophecy, and we today in the latter days, so this pertains to us.
29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
  • The city of Jerusalem fell in 1967, and we will as certain through this dream, and things that transpired in our history, and it will match and fit this word.
  • Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart
 
31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
  • Nebuchadnezzar's dream, as interpreted by Daniel, but given to Daniel by God, gives the course and end of the times of the Gentiles.
  • Daniel tells us about the kingdoms and kings that setup in Jerusalem
  • Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
  • That is the Gentile world-empire.
  • Get your history books out and look up.
  • Where = kingdom, kings that setup in Jerusalem, Daniel 2

  • Revelation 13:1 And upon his ten kings and upon his evil leaders they setup Satan's seat in  Jerusalem. (Dan 2 and Dan 7)
    The feet (6th kingdom) and toes (7th kingdom Satan's Crowns

  • Daniel 2:42 The two feet are the two branches (6th kingdom) from whence the ten toes (7th kingdom) come.

    12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
    13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

  • One Hour = 5 months Rev 9
  • Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
  • Note the five parts:
  • 1. The head -  was of fine gold = Babylon - Nebuchadnezzar
  • 2. The breast  of Silver = Medo-Persia - Cyrus - now Iran - Daniel 10
  • 3. The Arms - of silver = Greece - Alexander The Great
  • 4. The belly - of brass = Rome - Caesar - when Jesus walked the earth
  • 5. The thighs - of brass = Mohammedans, The Arabians
  • These five are preserved distinct throughout.
  • 6. The feet and legs verse 33 - will be part iron and clay. The nation Israel the good figs and bad figs Satan's seed was setup.
  • Gold . . . clay (Daniel 2:33). Note that the most precious metal, and the highest specific gravity was
    at the top, decreasing with its descent:
  • If you were to break this down into specific gravities, you would find it top heavy, from the first
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
  • 6th kingdom = The tribe of Judah became a nation, Israel but the Mohammedans the Arabians wouldn't give up the Dome of The Rock.
  • The good figs the tribe of Judah and bad figs the kenites was setup in Jerusalem.
  • Learn the parable of the fig tree, you have the good figs and bad figs setup.
  • Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
  • We are talking about the nations not the people. You have the good and bad in all nations.
  • If you were to break this down into specific gravities, you would find it top heavy.
  • Gold is 19.3; silver is 10.5; brass is 8.5; iron is 7.6; clay is 1.9.
  • This image would not stand of itself.
  • Consider the United Nations for a moment, whose aim is one world order, and now consider the image of the political beast in the 13th chapter of Revelation.
  • When you get down to the feet, it is mingled iron and clay.
  • Note that iron and clay will not mix.
  • The feet are the two branches from whence the ten toes come, being the same as the free world verse slave or communist world, or the mingling of the true Israelites with other religions.
34 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.
  • What's this stone that was hewn without hands that smiteth the mingled clay and iron?
  • This is the Messiah.
  • Ezekiel refers to God as the Rock and Psalm 118:22 refers to Christ as the cornerstone.
  • Christ is the stone that will smash the image of the beast, which is the one world order.
  • And so again we have the tie between Daniel and Revelation.
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 threshing floors; 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.
  • So the image broke and the wind carried the pieces away.
  • "Wind" here is the word "ruwach" which is Spirit.
  • And the stone, or Jesus Christ, became a great kingdom or nation and sealed the whole earth with His Truth.
  • Again a reference to the message in the book of Revelation.
  • Read Psalm 118 in relation to what we're reading in Daniel.
  • We get a little better understanding from Psalm 118 about this stone that was hewn without hands, because Christ himself made this stone, and I hope that you could grasp part of the comfort the protection, and His closeness with you.
  • It doesn't matter that you are only 7,000 in number as mentioned in Romans, and even less than that at this time, when nations will soon stand against us.
  • It doesn't matter how many toes the image has that represents their leaders, because you are priests of God.
  • The living God chose you, and if you will only partake of His power, nothing is impossible for you to attain. He is with you always.
36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
  • Daniel going tell the interpretation thereof before the king, which God gave to Daniel
  • Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these.

Saul was then appointed as Israel's first king.
