Daniel 2 Iron Clay Feet

This Islam In Bible Prophecy study shows how Muslims fulfill prophecy in Daniel 2.

Daniel 2 describes a statue with iron legs, which represents the Roman Empire.

Satan used the Roman Empire to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints.

The Lord exacted vengeance against it by causing the Roman Empire to collapse from within, from civil wars and excessive taxation; and from without, when the Lord sent army after army against it.

The last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., and Satan responded by empowering the Roman Catholic Church to rise to power in their place.

The Popes took the title of the Roman Emperors, Pontifex Maximus, as the head of the church and state, healing the deadly head wound.

The Roman Catholic Church didn’t have an army, so they used other people groups, the clay of Daniel 2, to wage war for them.

The statue has feet made of iron/clay, which tells us that the Roman beast would mingle with other people groups, to battle against the kingdom of Christ.

Daniel 2:41-43 “the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay

The Bible is its own dictionary, so we need not speculate about the meanings.

The Strong’s Hebrew word for both “mixed” and “mingle” is 6151 “arab”.

The word ‘arab’ in Daniel 41, 43 is not found anywhere else; because the passage in Daniel was originally written in Aramaic, which is very closely related to Hebrew.

But when we do a word study, we can see that the Aramaic 6151 ‘arab’ corresponds to Hebrew words that describe the mixing of the Arab race.

Aramaic 6151 arab corresponds to Hebrew 6148 arab – is a primative root, meaning ‘to braid, to intermix’

Hebrew 6150 arab is a primitive root identical with 6148.

Hebrew 6152 arab is derived from 6150, and it signifies the land of Arabia.

Hebrew 6154 ereb is derived from 6148, and signifies a ‘web of cloth’, also a mixture (or mongrel race), and especially the people of Arabia, a ‘mingled people’ or ‘mixed multitude’.

Hebrew 6163 arabee is derived from 6152, and signifies ‘an Arab or inhabitant of Arabia’.

Smith’s Bible Dictionary also states that “Arab” and “mixed” are related terms and ideas:

“Arabia cannot be held to have a more extended signification than the Hebrew equivalents in the Old Testament. (a) ‘erb’ (Exo 12:38; Neh 13:3) and ‘erb’ (1Ki 10:15; Jer 25:20, 50:37; Eze 30:5), rendered in the AV “a mixed multitude” (Exo 12:38), here followed by ‘rb’, ‘the mixed multitude,’ kings of ‘Arabia’ so in Vulgate, and in Hebrew in corresponding passage in 2Ch 9:14, and (in the last two instances) ‘the mingled people,’ have been thought to signify the Arabs.”

We can clearly see the relationship of these words, which are pointing to the mixed race of the Arabs.

The clay represents the Arabs, who became the great Ottoman Empire, who worked with the Roman Catholic Church, to control the lands previously held by the Roman Empire.

They both killed Christians and Jews, but they have also warred with each over possession of Jerusalem and other territories, which led to the Crusades where they fought against each other, as they don’t mix well.

Jerome said “In our time, the clay has become mixed with iron. Once nothing was stronger than the Roman Empire, now nothing weaker, mixed up as it is with, and needing the help of barbarous nations.”

The Catholics and Arabs killed Jews because of Jerusalem but Christians because of the satin’s fear of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit knowing its power, If you are apposed by any force greater and stronger than yourself threatening to destroy you the only option is to find allies to join hands with and kill the threat. Anyone who apposes Christians do it out of fear put there by Satan.

And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay“

IRON MIXED WITH MIRY CLAY = THEY SHALL MINGLE THEMSELVES WITH THE
SEED OF MEN

SO TO MIXE = TO MINGLE

AFTER THE IRON KINGDOM THAT WAS PAGAN ROME
THERE ARE THE KINGDOM OF PAPAL ROME(IRON+CLAY) “RESURRECTED ROME”
A RELIGIOUS POLITICAL POWER, where THE RELIGIOUS POWER HAS THE ASCENDANT ON THE POLITICAL POWER OF STATES AND USES ITS POWER TO DOMINATE ON AWARENESS…SEE REVELATION 17(FROM 538 to 1798)

When the early church became corrupted by departing from the simplicity of the gospel and accepting heathen rites and customs, she lost the Spirit and power of God; and in order to control the consciences of the people, she sought the support of the secular power. The result was the papacy, a church that controlled the power of the state and employed it to further her own ends, especially for the punishment of “heresy.”

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Psalms 118:8,9

Thus saith the LORD: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. Jeremiah 17:5

SO, IRON + CLAY = CHURCH(corrupted) +STATE(10 toes)
