In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Babylon was represented as a head of gold; meaning riches and power. Today on A Study In The Word, Brother Swaggart and panel discuss the second chapter of Daniel and the time leading up to the fall of Babylon under king Belshazzar as he forsook the ways of the Lord, not once seeking the wisdom of Daniel. In verses thirty-nine through forty-one, we see Daniel interpret the king’s dream where the Medo-Persian Empire would replace the Babylonian Empire. The third kingdom would be the Grecian Empire with the rise of Alexander the Great. The fourth kingdom depicted in the dream, is the Roman Empire represented as a divided kingdom, with two legs. Daniel’s prophecy recounts these four Empires to Nebuchadnezzar’s in the interpretation of his dream. Brother Swaggart says he can only imagine what the king must have been thinking about the fall of Babylon. The panel goes on to discuss Daniel’s prophecy yet to come, with the ten toes depicting the ten nations that will join with the Antichrist and come out of the Old Roman Empire territory. This will be the kingdom of the Antichrist during the Great Tribulation.
