Daniel tells Nebuchadnezzar his dream.

This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Daniel 2:32-33

Then a stone was cut from the mountain and with no one holding it, it crushed the statue to bits. Daniel went on the explain the different sections of the statue, starting with gold, and becoming less valuable as the ages passed. 

What we know about the dream today:

Head of God: Babylon with Nebuchadnezzar as king. 

Breast and arms of silver: two kingdoms together represented by Darius the Mede and Cyrus the Persian.

Belly and thighs of brass: monarchy of the Grecians, founded by Alexander. 

Legs of iron: the Roman Empire 

Feet with its ten toes: the Roman Empire divided into ten different kingdoms.

This is one statue representing the different kingdoms that had influence over the nation of Israel. We are living in the age of the feet and toes; some nations are strong as iron and others are as weak as clay and they don’t stick together because iron and clay don’t mix. The final kingdom is that of King Jesus that will stand forever! Jesus represents the stone that was cut out of the mountain and he crushed the statue to bits to become the one nation will never fail. 

After Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar his dream and its meaning, he fell at his feet to worship him then Daniel was promoted in his kingdom.
