Daniel (Program #4) – The Vision of the Great Image — the Controlling Vision in the Book of Daniel

In Daniel chapter 2 there is an impressive human image which is the controlling vision in the entire book of Daniel.  Today we want to consider this image and how close we are to Christ’s coming as the smiting stone to crush it and all that it represents.

The things that we are going to touch in this broadcast are indeed momentous and this vision is a controlling vision to understand all of human history.

Revelation (Program #44) -The Beast Out of the Sea (4)

In the Old Testament book of Daniel in chapter two, King Nebuchadnezzar has a great dream, a vision. Daniel who has been imprisoned is the only one able to interpret this dream. In this dream, there was a great image representing all the kingdoms of the earth. And a great stone ultimately smashes the image. And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth, the Bible says.  Included in the image in Daniel two are all the worldly powers consummating with the Antichrist and his soon-to-be kingdom. The stone is Christ, crushing and replacing the worldly kingdoms with the kingdom of God. This is the view from Daniel chapter two.

Joel (Program #2) – On Joel (2)—The Content (1)

The book of Joel in the Old Testament contains 3 main points. The first is the plague of the 4 locusts found in Chapter 1. These 4 locusts in Joel 1, the 4 horns in Zechariah, the 4 beasts in Daniel 7 and the great image in Daniel 2 seen in 4 sections all refer to the four great empires of human history. The Babylonians, the Medo Persian, the Greek and the Roman Empires. These 4 empires representing the totality of human government had been consuming Israel for 27 centuries.

The second main point of Joel is the outpouring of the Spirit prophesied in Chapter two, and referred to by the apostle Peter on the day of Pentecost.

The third main point in Joel is the coming restoration, not only of Israel but of the whole universe. Such a short book, a Minor Prophet in the Old Testament, yet such a great content.
