The prophet Daniel saw in vision an immense image with a head of gold, chest and arms of silver, belly and thighs of bronze, legs of iron and feet of iron mixed with clay.

Daniel was granted by God to explain the meaning of this dream to Nebuchadnezzar and that he was the head of gold. After him, would come other kingdoms, namely Medo-Persia, Greece and finally Rome.

Jehovah's Witnesses have always made the mistake of assuming that there are more than 4 kingdoms here. They consider the legs to be Rome and the feet the Anglo-America world power.

But their interpretation just doesn't fit this prophecy at all. Because no nation since Rome has ruled the entire known world like Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece.

Besides, the 10 toes of the image represent 10 kings of Rome. Recall in Revelation the wild beast with seven heads and ten horns and ten crowns representing ten rulers.

It was during this time of Roman world dominance that God sent Jesus Christ from heavenly Mt. Zion.

Jesus said that he was the STONE that the builders had rejected but had become the head of the corner. Through the good news that Jesus preached he conquered the Roman conquerors and thus conquered the whole world.

Jesus thus fulfilled Dan. 2:44 by crushing and putting an end to all those kingdoms and establishing his kingdom in the heavens in the first century.

What do you think?

Except Great Britain who had the largest empire the world has ever seen. It covered over a quarter of the earth's entire land area.

Although Great Britain did rule over a vast amount of territory, it was not the worlds SOLE ruler like Rome was. Great Britain has many contenders.

39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Now the King is informed that the dream meant that two other kingdoms are to arise. He is further informed that the brass kingdom will bear rule over all the earth. Daniel also informs Nebuchaduzzar that the kingdom to follow the Babylonian would be inferior to his. What Daniel is telling as the meaning of the dream is corroborated in the books of history. The four kingdoms are as follows:

GOLD – Babylonian – 600-536 B.C.

SILVER – Medo Persian 536-330 B.C.

BRASS – Grecian – 323 – 30 B.C.

IRON – Roman 30 – 476 A.D.

45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Wow! What a picture. A stone cut out of the mountain without hands. No human being hewed the stone from the mountain. The stone and the Kingdom that the God of Heaven was to set-up are one and the same.

Jesus Christ is the Stone that came out of the Mountain of God and destroyed all the other kingdoms and set up his kingdom.

Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Isa. 28:14-16.

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Mt. 21:42

This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Acts 4:11

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone. Eph 2:20

To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. I Pet. 2:4-8

There is no room for doubt that Jesus Christ is the stone cut out of the Mountian that destroyed the kingdoms made by hands and established his kingdom. Daniel said that the dream was certain and the interpretation thereof sure. We now know by historical fact that the dream was decreed of the Lord and He proved it to be true. The dream was fixed, the sense was certain; it would happen in the future, it is beyond all doubt.
