Daniel 2:31-34 "Thou o king saw a great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you and the form of it was terrible. This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and thighs of brass, His legs of iron and his feet partly iron and partly clay. You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image upon his feet that were made of iron and clay and broke them to pieces"
Daniel 2:40-44 "Then there will be a 4th kingdom as strong as Iron; in as much as iron crushes and shatters all things, so like iron that breaks in pieces, it will crush and break all these in pieces. In that you saw the feet & toes, partly of potters clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, in as much as you saw the iron mixed with common clay. As the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle. And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men, but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery. In the days of those kings, the god of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left to another people, it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms but it will itself endure forever."
During the time Jesus was born, Luke 2:1 "And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from caesar augustus, that all the world should be taxed." Luke 2:4-5 "And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David. to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child."
The Map below shows how the Roman empire has 2 geographical legs - Northern Africa and Southern Europe and grew into a mighty empire from the time of Christ to it's greatest extent in 400AD.
approximately 700 - 800bc the Roman Empire began to break into 2 distinct legs politically. the capital of the west leg was in germany and they called their leader kaiser, which is german for caesar. Germany calls itself the fatherland! (An observation by Dan from Grapeview, WA)
The East leg moved from constantinople to moscow, and they called their leader tsar, which is russian for caesar. Both these kingdoms have tried to crush other kingdoms - it's in the nature of the beast! Russia calls itself the motherland! (An observation by Dan from Grapeview, WA)
the roman empire is still alive Today, but now has 2 political legs as well as geographical legs. Keep an eye on Italy, Germany & Russia, they were Major players in WWii!
Why the 4 colors used in the reference block @ lower left corner of the map? We'll have to ask Brian Lange - God showed him what they could possibly mean? See Page 5.
Revelation 1:3 says that we will be happy if we read this book, hear the words of this prophesy and take to heart all that is written in it!
