The following prophecy was written by Daniel, a prophet of God's who received a message from him through the dreams of King Nebuchanezzar, the Babylonian king who had his army destroy Jerusalem and capture many Jews. Daniel's writings were about end time prophesies and this one in particular shows the religion of Christianity that came out of the fourth Kingdom, which was the Roman Empire. Most people don't realize that the Roman government had a law forbidding the gospel being preached soon after the disciples became sinless saints and preached the same gospel as Jesus did, which is the voice of God. The Romans kept killing the saints until they were all eliminated by the early fourth century. With many followers left, the Romans had to find a way to deceive them so they started the religion of Christianity and changed the writings of some saints they killed to make a falsified new testament. This started the famine of the Word found in the prophesies of Amos 8:11-12 and Daniel 9:22-27. The beast that Daniel interpreted had a head of gold to describe the Babylonian Empire. The silver chest and arms described the Persia-Medes Kingdom. The bronze belly and thighs was the Greek world rule and the legs of iron was the Roman Empire. The feet of iron and clay come out of the fourth Kingdom and is symbolic for a continued world power that will be destroyed at the end of this age. The only world kingdom that has remained intact since the fourth kingdom of the Roman Empire is Christianity. The Vatican and the Roman Catholic church were a dominating world power for over a thousand years and they still have world influence. This is the symbolic iron feet of Daniel's beast and the clay symbolizes the Protestant churches with all it's denominations. Clay breaks into many pieces when struck on a hard object. This world power is in place today but it will be destroyed when the earth's crust is melted by hot lava, which won't be long from now. Here's the prophecy that reveals Christianity as part of the beast that will be destroyed in the end. Daniel 2 31: "You saw, O king, and behold, a great image. This image, mighty and of exceeding brightness, stood before you, and its appearance was frightening. 32: The head of this image was of fine gold, its breast and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33: its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. 34: As you looked, a stone was cut out by no human hand, and it smote the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces; 35: then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. 40: And there shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things; and like iron which crushes, it shall break and crush all these. 41: And as you saw 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 miry clay. 42: And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. 43: As you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. 44: And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand for ever; 45: 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 hereafter. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure." The following prophecy shows that the saints were killed by the Roman Empire ( horn) and that the saints will receive the kingdom after all these earthly kingdoms are destroyed. Daniel 7 17: `These four great beasts are four kings who shall arise out of the earth. 18: But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, for ever and ever.' 19: "Then I desired to know the truth concerning the fourth beast, which was different from all the rest, exceedingly terrible, with its teeth of iron and claws of bronze; and which devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet; 20: and concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up and before which three of them fell, the horn which had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things, and which seemed greater than its fellows. 21: As I looked, this horn made war with the saints, and prevailed over them 22: until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High, and the time came when the saints received the kingdom. 23: "Thus he said: `As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces.
