Five Kingdoms to Come
In two Divinely given prophetic visions, recorded in the Old Testament book of Daniel, chapters 2 and 7, God gave Daniel insight far into the future. The prophecy states that God was making known “what will be in the latter days” (Dan. 2:28).
Using symbolic pictures the prophecies span the centuries from the then dominant kingdom of Babylon all the way to the setting up of Christ's worldwide Kingdom “in the latter days.” The prophecies tell of four world-dominating Kingdoms that would succeed one another, to be followed by a fifth—the kingdom of Jesus Christ—that would “stand forever” (Dan. 2:44). These visions contain remarkable, unmistakable details, showing beyond any possibility of doubt that the knowledge came from God, who alone knows the future.
