The king has seen a great image, its head made of gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of 'iron, and its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.
  11. 11. A stone not cut by hands struck the image on its feet and smashed them, and the clay, iron, bronze, silver and gold shattered and were swept away by the wind, while the stone became a great mountain filling the whole Earth. and grows to fill the whole earth.

A stone not cut by hands struck the image on its feet and smashed them, and the clay, iron, bronze, silver and gold shattered and were swept away by the wind, while the stone became a great mountain filling the whole Earth. and grows to fill the whole earth. DANIEL THEN GIVES THE INTERPRETATION
  13. 13. DANIEL THEN GIVES THE INTERPRETATION Nebuchadnezzar is the head of gold: he has been given dominion by God. After him another kingdom who will arise, inferior to his Which in turn will be followed by a kingdom of bronze which will rule over the whole earth.
  14. 14. DANIEL THEN GIVES THE INTERPRETATION Nebuchadnezzar is the head of gold: he has been given dominion by God. After him another kingdom who will arise, inferior to his Which in turn will be followed by a kingdom of bronze which will rule over the whole earth. The a fourth kingdom of iron will come, but it will be a divided, partly strong like iron and partly brittle like clay.
  15. 15. DANIEL THEN GIVES THE INTERPRETATION The a fourth kingdom of iron will come, but it will be a divided, partly strong like iron and partly brittle like clay. In that time God will set up a final kingdom, the rock not cut by human hands, which will smash all the others.
  16. 16. HISTORICIST INTERPRETATION The following Historicist interpretation of the vision of the image has traditionally been prevalent among Christian scholars since the 1st CE.
  17. 17. THE FIRST KINGDOM  The head of the statue refers to the Babylon empire that ruled Judea and the lands around it.  It is the kingdom that king belongs to. Head Of Gold Babylon
  18. 18. THE SECOND KINGDOM The Persians defeated the Babylonians whom Nebuchadnezzar was among its kings in 539 BC. Breast and arms of silver Medo-Persia Empire
  19. 19. THE THIRD KINGDOM Then came the Greek, the second Kingdom, and defeated the Persians and put their hands on Palestine in 331 BC Belly and thighs of brass Hellenistic Greece
  20. 20. THE FOURTH KINGDOM Represents the Roman Dynasty which conquered Palestine after the downfall of Greek. Feet partly of iron and partly of molded clay -The divided Roman Empire Legs Of Iron Rome
  21. 21. This description represented some internal troubles in this dynasty, Representing the Roman empire with Legs of iron refers to its division later into two kingdoms; the Eastern and the western, this supports the fact that the end of the Roman Empire was in 638-640 Ad, not when the downfall of the western part in 476 because Palestine remained under the possession of the eastern part.
  22. 22. THE FIFTH KINGDOM Rock Kingdom of God What is the fifth kingdom? o The fifth empire (the kingdom of God) is the Muslim nation. o The first one who discovered this was a famous Christian priest David Benjamin, who embraced Islam. o The Muslim nation defeated the Romans and expelled them from the Palestine and the lands nearby in 638 Ad o The Muslim nation is kingdom of God because it is a monotheistic nation that call for the worship of God alone Please note that Christian scholars always ignore Islam as religion sent from God.When they face a challenge like that in any prophecy talking about Islam and doesn't fit Jesus, they would claim:This will happen when Jesus returns. The prevalent view of the Christian scholars is that there will be a comeback of the Roman Empire that will be led by Jesus. Please note: the Christian scholars ignore the Islamic Empire that ruled the land for more than one thousand years.
  23. 23. DESPERATE ATTEMPTS o They never controlled the blessed land before they became one empire o Historians always considered them both one empire o The Holy book considered them both one empire(5:28) , they are represented with a ram with two horns, each one represents one of the two joined parts. To avoid the fact that the 5th kingdom, which would be the kingdom of God, is the Muslim nation, some claim that both the Persian and the maiden dynasty are two separate dynasties. This is wrong because of:
  24. 24. ANOTHER DESPERATE ATTEMPT o This is wrong as the first few verses are talking clearly about the Babylonian Empire to which the king belongs to. Some Christian missionaries consider the Assurain kingdom is the first so that the Roman Empire will be the 5th. This is wrong
  25. 25. o Given the fact that the 4th empire had actually ruled Palestine . Don’t you think it is ridiculous the fifth Roman empire will remove the fourth Roman Empire, Romans defeats Romans. Do the Romans rule Palestine now? However we will put our minds aside and we will accept this desperate interpretation, There Is Another Question, The Most Important Of All: They Foolishly Claim that the fifth empire is a Roman empire that will rise again. ANOTHER DESPERATE ATTEMPT
  26. 26. 1. Babylonian 2. Persian 3. The Greek 4. The Roman 5. The Islamic ( During Which The Majority Of Palestine Turned To Islam) 6. Then The Roman If you believe that a certain Roman empire will come in the end, you will be shattering the whole prophecy since the prophecy determines four dynasties that will control Palestine before the coming of the kingdom of God. Please note that the prophecy is talking about four kingdoms in succession then the fifth is the kingdom of God- not the sixth
  27. 27. Islam is a TRUE RELIGION SENT FROM GOD The Holy book is filled with many glad-tidings about the prophet of Islam Though his name was obliterated and many attempts were made to modify verses talking about him to fit Jesus, his name is still there in many codices that are found recently. Islam is the sole religion that calls for pure monotheism. Don’t believe lies about Islam.
