During that night of prayer, Daniel receives what he
needs. King Nebuchadnezzar asks, "Are you able to
tell me what I saw and what it means?" Daniel replies,
"No wise man, enchanter, magician, or diviner can
explain to the king this mystery, but, there is a God 
in heaven who reveals mysteries." Then Daniel begins
to relate the dream and the interpretation which entails
things to come in the near and far future. The king
dreamed of a large statue with a head of gold (Babylon),
a breastplate of silver (Meads and Persians), abdomen
of bronze (Greece), legs of iron (Rome), and toes of a
mixture of clay and iron (today?). As Daniel watches
a rock appears, not made by human hands, that smashes
into the statue and breaks it into smithereens.

I am trying to write a blog not a sermon! Read the book
of Daniel because many of his prophecies are still to
come, perhaps in our time. Scholars have taken the
initiative to link the kingdoms to real kingdoms and
real wars and found the dream historically correct.

Here is the most important thought. "There is a God in
heaven who reveals mysteries." Camp on this thought!
The Apostle Paul says this: "My purpose is that they 
may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that
they may have the full riches of complete understanding,
in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely 
Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of 
wisdom and knowledge." (Colossians 2:2,3)

Dearest reader, I pray this scripture for you. May He
satisfy your deepest hunger!
