According to Daniel’s second chapter in the Bible, a king of Babylon had this dream..... It was a statue with five levels made of five different materials, and since that history has all but completely played out since then, we know what these parts now represent.
1. Golden Head: Babylonian Empire
2. Silver Chest/Arms: Medianite/Persian Empire
3. Bronze Pelvis/Hips: Greek Empire (this was the Bronze Age as well.)
4. Iron Knees/Calves: Roman Empire (Iron Age)
5. Clay/Iron Feet: Roman Catholic Church (Dark Ages to currently.)
6. The Rock that smashes the statue: Kingdom of Heaven (the event being the Rapture/Resurrection.)
