This Sunday we will be continuing our series “Kingdoms in Conflict.” When we left off last Sunday, we looked at Daniel Ch. 2 and Nebuchadnezzar’s dream; and talked about the prayer of Daniel in which he blesses God, for the fact that He changes times and seasons, that He removes kings and raises them up, that He gives wisdom to the wise, that He reveals deep and secret things and finally that He knows what is in the darkness and that light dwells with Him.
This Sunday, we are moving into the dream and the interpretation that Nebuchadnezzar had; and that God has given Daniel. Daniel 2:31 “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. 32 This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. 34 You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.
God is showing the king; his own kingdom and the successive kingdoms of this world; in the form of an image or idol. When Nebuchadnezzar first saw it, he must have been overwhelmed because the image dazzled with splendor, it was descriptive in that it accurately forecasted all of the future kingdoms… but then the image was demolished by the Stone; it suffered the demise of being completely obliterated and then disappeared from view. And so shall it be when Jesus, the Stone cut without hands; returns to set up His Kingdom which will last forever.
