Wesley's Notes for Daniel 2:44


2:44 In the days of these kings - While the iron kingdom stood, for Christ was born in the reign of Augustus Caesar. And this kingdom is not bounded by any limits, as worldly empires are, but is truly universal. And it shall be for ever, never destroyed or given to others, as the rest were.


Discussion for Daniel 2:44

  • Brianna for verse 44
    I never believe the Kingdom of God to be symbolic. This scripture back that up. It is a REAL government, that will replace these worldly governments. It is the rightful sovereign institution to rule over all mankind. It won 't rule for a few years and then be handed over, and it can 't be destroyed. A truly superior Government.
  • Godwin Ikechukwu for verse 44
    The boundless Kingdom of Christ has the capacity to overthrow all idol based system of government. The revelation God gave to Nebuchadnezzar a Gentile king is that all systems will collapse and Christ will reign for ever
