Hi Lisa. Basically, the short of it, Neb's statue is a list of empires ending with two legs and two feet, ending at ten toes which we believe to be the final kingdom. From a historical perspective we have seen the western and eastern Roman empire as the two legs. But with one foot in the east, now the muslim world, it may be something else. There is a lot of discussion about the EU, and a lot of discussion about the Muslim activities. I am suggesting there may be something to a final formation of five toes on each foot being an eastern muslim alliance working together with an EU alliance. Thus Israel is completely surrounded by a growing anti Semitic two faceted alliance. Europe, the ME and north African nations working together at first for security and prosperity, with ten kings or offices of semi official authority, no kingdom, until the king of fierce countenance arrives on the scene later. Then we have to wonder if the US is part of the western foot, which seems likely through NATO and other economic institutions. Then another question, does the little horn show up in the east or the west ?
I've been thinking about this for some time. As I study and easily find the islamic side something has been sticking in my mind. Trying to be wary of being deceived, even by myself, I have looked for an answer to that nagging question, what else then. I've been buried in the details but when I step back to take a more simplified look, this is what appears as a possibility.
Any thoughts anyone ?
God Bless You
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
