WE ARE TALKING TONIGHT ABOUT A SUBJECT WHICH SHOULD BE OF MUCH IMPORTANCE TO YOU BECAUSE THIS IS AN HOUR OF PROPHETIC DEVELOPMENT. This is an hour in which we find the economic and social life of our nation in a strange and unusual unbalance. We turn to the words of Daniel as he came before the King of Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar who had just had a dream and a vision. And although he could not remember it, he was still very disturbed by it. And he wanted an explanation as to this vision and its meaning. When Daniel, inspired by the Living God, came before the king then Daniel told him about the course of the pagan powers that sought to rule the world. He told him of how these Empires would run their courses and that with great significance would be identified by their part in prophecy. Then Daniel said, ‘Thou Babylon, thou O King art this head of Gold.’
As Daniel introduced this vision to the King as a great statue, he said that the statue had a head of gold. Its arms and breast were of silver, his belly and thighs were of brass. The legs were of iron and his feet and toes were part of iron and part of clay. This was the symbolism of these Empires, but especially was this important as it related then to Babylon. Because Babylon summed up the total of Satanic and evil influence. It became the tremendous international world metropolis of evil. Here were gathered together the pagan priests of every pagan philosophy. Here they were gathered together in a vast Baal temple of universal worship. Behind the scenes the strategy of this evil, Satanic, Serpentine program, was to extend through their Priest craft into the thinking of men throughout the world.
