Daniel 2 – What Bible Prophecy Says About our Day
Have you ever had a dream that left an impression but when you woke up the next morning you just couldn’t remember it? You know that it was important, bizarre, remarkable even, but for the life of you, you just can’t seem to remember a single thing about it?Well, that exactly what happened to one of the greatest kings in history. In ancient Babylon, dreams had special significance. Dreams were part of religious experience. It was believed that the gods spoke to people through dreams and that the king, especially, was a recipient of these divine messages. So, when Nebuchadnezzar, the king of the Babylonian Empire and the most powerful person on the planet, had a dream, an important one, and couldn’t remember it, he was upset and frustrated and desperately wanted to know what it was. So, he summoned his wise men, who claimed to be in contact with the gods and said they knew how to read minds, interpret dreams and tell the future. Of course, the king assumed that knowing how to interpret a dream also meant being able to conjure up a forgotten one as well. He was wrong. In the end, the God of heaven intervened and through Daniel, a Bible prophet, God showed Nebuchadnezzar not only his dream but its interpretation as well. The dream and its interpretation are the key to understanding and knowing the future. It’s a kind of blueprint that maps both history and prophecy from the time of Babylon, 600 BC, right down to the second coming of Jesus and the end of the world as we know it. It’s one of the most amazing dreams and predictions ever recorded. So, what was this dream? What did it predict, and why should that matter to us now? Well, let’s look at 12 facts about Nebuchadnezzar’s remarkable dream.
