Part 4# (THE MISSING KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE BOOK OF DANIEL) (12-12-20)
**(PT. 4 Of This 5 PT. SERIES INTITLED: ‘THE LITTLE HORN & THE RED DRAGON’: ‘2 VISIONS OR 1!)**
Now, many scholars teach that, there are, ‘2 DIFERENT VISIONS’, in the Book of Daniel. Now, while I agree that there are ‘2 Visions’, I totally disagree that, there are ‘2 Different Visions’. This might be over simplified, but ‘The Book of Daniel can Broken Down Into 2 Parts, with each Part Being Focused on The Events Surrounding ‘One Of The 2 Visions’! The 1st being found, in ‘Chapters 2- 7, concerning ‘The Great Image’ that we studied in our earlier segments, and a ‘2nd Vision’, found in ‘Chapters8- 12, concerning ‘The Vision Of Different Kinds Of Symbolic Animals’.
Although Daniel had ‘2 Visions’, they are not ‘2 Different Visions’, they are actually ‘2 VISIONS OF THE SAME THING’, both ‘Visions’ are ‘The Revelation Of The Kingdoms Which Made Up The GREAT IMAGE That Nebuchadnezzar saw, but in the 2nd half of The Book of Daniel, God showed Daniel ‘The Same Vision Only From A Different Perspective’.
Daniel records the ‘2nd Vision’that he received in the 1st year of the Babylonian king Belshazzar. This ‘2nd Vision’ predicts major world Empires and Events from ‘The Time of Daniel, Even To The 2nd Coming of Christ’! The vision ended with Daniel saying:
“My thoughts Greatly Troubled Me, and my Countenance changed; but I kept the matter in my heart”.
So What Did Daniel See That Troubled Him So Much That It Changed His Countenance?
In verse 1 Daniel had “A ‘DREAM And VISIONS’ Of His Head While On His Bed.” If you’ll notice, here in this ‘2nd Vision, Daniel uses ‘The Same Expression That He Used While Describing The ‘1st Vision’ recorded in (Daniel 2:28) concerning King Nebuchadnezzar’s “DREAM And VISIONS” that came in the 2nd year of his reign!
As we’ll discover in this Video Series, that the ‘2 Sets of DREAMS And VISIONS’ were seen about 43-44 years apart; but as we will see, they both describe ‘4 World Empires’. The ‘2nd Vision’ concerning the ‘4 Beasts’ seen in this Video, reveals more information about ‘The Same 4 Empires’ that are described in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the ‘1st VISION’.
While The Book of Daniel can sound dreadful and a little frightening, Daniel proclaims that the Empires and kingdoms of the world doesn’t win, ‘But A Prepared “STONE WINS IN THE END’!
You watched while a ‘STONE WAS CUTOUT WITHOUT HANDS’, which struck ‘The Image’ on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were ‘Crushed Together’, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; ‘The Wind (RUACH – SPIRIT) carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And ‘THE STONE’ that struck ‘The Image’ became a ‘Great Mountain’ and filled the whole earth.
Both ‘Visions’ present God as ‘The Supreme Sovereign’ over the entire world. He not only ruled over men during the time of Nebuchadnezzar, but He would also judge ‘The Empires’ that followed. The end result is that all worldly kingdoms will be destroyed and replaced by ‘God’s Eternal Kingdom’ (Daniel 2:44-45; 7:9-14).
