The world at this moment is probably more divided than any time since the second world war and it's getting worse by the day.
In the Book Of Daniel, chapter 2, Daniel interpreted a dream of Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon. The king saw a gigantic statue made of four metals, from its gold head to its feet of mingled iron and clay; The four metals represented the mighty empires in the history of the world.
The statue had a head of gold and was said to represent Babylon, its chest and arms were silver and represented Media-Persia. The belly and thighs were of bronze and represented the mighty Greek empire. Its legs were said to be of Iron and represented the Roman Empire and its feet were clay and iron and thought to represent the Anglo-American period of now.
As Nebuchadnezzar watched, a stone "not cut by human hands" destroyed the statue (this system of things) and became a mountain filling the whole world and becoming Jehovah's Kingdom. Our world today, or this generation is thought to represent the feet of mingled iron and clay but the idea has given many scholars a headache as to what the iron and clay mix could possibly mean. If we look back at 2020 we can begin to understand just what the "feet of mingled iron and clay," may mean.
Feet of mingled iron and clay
It is a political, religious, social and even technological mishmash which cannot possibly fuse together. We have become, one or the other and never the twain shall meet in our complicated world which has become everything the Bible prophesied would happen. In Matthew 24, Jesus told us "Many false prophets will arise and mislead many; and because of the increasing of lawlessness, the love of the greater number will grow cold."
In Timothy 2, verse 3 we read Evil in the Last Days... 1 But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without the love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these! 6 They are the kind who worm their way into households and captivate vulnerable women who are weighed down with sins and led astray by various passions, 7 who are always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.
