How Ancient Babylon Foretold The End Of The World

 David Asscherick preaches on the dream that King Nebuchadnezzar had in Daniel chapter 2. The bible says when Nebuchadnezzar woke up he could not remember that dream. He called his wise men and asked them to tell him the dream that he had and also its interpretation. His wise men told him that this was not possible and asked him to tell them the dream and they would then tell him the meaning. The king was so incensed by this and ordered that all the wise men should be killed.

Those charged with this instruction to kill all wise men went to one of the Hebrew captives, Daniel to carry out the King's command. Daniel had for some reason had not been invited to attend the king's earlier summon.When Daniel was told the purpose of the visit by the king's men he asked that he be given time. He then called his three friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abdnego, and prayed to God for to reveal to them the dream and its interpretation. During the night the God of heaven revealed the dream to Daniel who offered praises to the Lord for this intervention. 

Daniel went before King Nebuchadnezzar and revealed the dream that he had. He told him that God of heaven wanted to reveal to the king what was to happen in future. He said the dream involved a statue made of God, silver,bronze, iron and clay. He said the statute represented various kingdoms from ancient Bablylon to the very end of time when as presented in the dream, a supernatural stone, a stone not made by hand, would destroy the statue and cover the whole world with an everlasting kingdom.
