The Incredible Prophecy of Daniel 2
The Bible records a fascinating account in Daniel chapter 2. Perhaps you may have read it. Perhaps you haven’t, and now you’re wondering what it’s all about! In either case, you’re in for an exciting journey. Buckle up 🙂
Have you wondered if the Bible can be fully trusted? Through a story that took place in the kingdom of Babylon, recorded in the book of Daniel, and written hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, we discover a powerful, compelling reason to believe the Bible… The Bible can predict the future!
We begin with the story of King Nebuchadnezzar.
King Nebuchadnezzar of the mighty world empire of Babylon, had a dream.
We read about the dream, and the aftermath in Daniel chapter 2.
And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.
The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
Who were the Chaldeans? They were the philosophers and wise men of the kingdom. They were all called to this important occasion. The king was troubled by a dream that he couldn’t remember… and this was no ordinary dream!
Nebuchadnezzar was so keen to know the dream and interpretation that he made the decision to kill all the “wise men” (princes or magicians) of his realm if they could not tell it to him.
This was serious!
Imagine how the wise men felt! How is it possible for any man or woman to tell what someone else had dreamed?
