Alot of people are familiar with King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in the book of Daniel… but it’s plain to see that many havn’t put its interpretation together or really allowed it to sink in….
Any time a person is looking for continuity of ideas. Any time we are debating ideals and searching for a middle ground. Any time a politician says “bipartisanship” or “reach across the aisle” or “come to center”…. We are seeing someone who might understand the symptoms of the battle, but it hasn’t really registered with them.
All they want is unity, in a world where unity is impossible.
We are in the last kingdom of the earth right now. If you think about the reason for our lack of continuity, it comes from all of us being very self educated people. We are not a monarchy society, rather a democracy. There isn’t a single time in history that every nation across he globe was a democracy. This period is represented well by king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of kingdoms
….The feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay.And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage,but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. Daniel 2:41-43
Another one of Daniel’s prophecy talks about us being very self educated people… Though you may also be aware Jesus said the same thing.
But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.
If you find yourself ever trying to agree with someone, or get them to agree with you – remember this has been prophesied. If you are thinking this lack of “Unity” will ultimately lead to destruction on a global scale… Well your absolutely right… That would be the point. Just as Daniel concluded with the kings vision…
And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever,just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.” – Daniel 2: 44-45
As Christians, what do we do with this?
We ourselves are just as divided as Republicans and Democrats.
The only thing we can ever agree on is that we disagree. I think it’s best we only trust in what the bible says, nothing else man says or even says what the bible says. That is the source of our only truth, in a chaotic world full of facts.
Even on this conclusion, I know people will not understand what I’m saying or will profusely disagree. And so, Anyone who has an ear, let them hear me repeat myself. We have no unity, nor will we until Jesus destroys all the kingdoms of the earth. It is inevitable one way or another. The very best you can do for yourself is pick the side of Jesus, or pick the side of the world. Anything in between these 2 extremes is chaos and confusion.
