Mixed With Iron And Clay

Daniel 2:41-43

Who but Daniel, under divine inspiration, could foretell that the mighty empire of Rome would suffer division?  But when he came to the feet and toes in his explanation, Daniel predicted, "The kingdom shall be divided"   Did Daniel's prediction come to pass? History records clearly that it did.

During the fourth and fifth centuries AD the empire of Rome in the west became divided as several distinct barbarian kingdoms with her midst gained independent power.  And these kingdoms, which later developed into the nations of Europe today, have ever remained divided. 

Daniel declared that "they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay."  Down through the centuries many powerful men have attempted to overthrow that prophecy and unite Europe. Charlemagne, Charles V, Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm, and Hitler all tried and failed.  Attempts to bring an intermingling between these kingdoms, especially through the practice of intermarriage among royal families, also failed just as Daniel predicted in verse 43.  The five fateful words, "they will not hold together" have accurately portrayed the sweep of European history from the disintegration of the Roman empire till today.  Gods word has clearly proved true.

Daniel 2:41 - And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Daniel 2:42 - And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

Daniel 2:43 -  And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
