THE KINGDOM OF MEN
The visions of Daniel and John not only revealed the existence of the FOUR GREAT EMPIRES and other nations that should arise, but are also descriptive of their political career during the Seven Times of the Kingdom of Men; whereas the vision of the Image, seen by the King of Babylon, had SPECIAL REFERENCE to “what shall be in the latter days.” In the interpretation of the dream, he was informed, however, that the metals composing the Image represented a succession of empires, each dynasty superseding and absorbing the other, but as the Image has never yet existed as a whole the constituents forming it must be brought together. The kingdoms found in the territory of these four successive empires will exist contemporaneously. This Image-Kingdom of men will then stand upon its feet, assuming an aggressive attitude when the Stone-Power (Christ) descends upon the feet of the Image of various metals, “then was the Iron, the Clay, the Silver, and the Gold broken to pieces TOGETHER…and the Stone that smote the Image became a great mountain” (or empire of nations). Dan. 2:34,35,45. Therefore, all that Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream has never yet been fulfilled, but revealed to him “what shall come to pass hereafter”; and that the destruction of the whole Image would result in “the God of Heaven setting up a KINGDOM, which shall never be destroyed, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever…the dream is certain and the interpretation thereof sure.” – Dan.2:44
