Wesley's Notes for Daniel 2:45


2:45 And the gold - This denotes the small beginning of Christ's visible kingdom, and the different rise of Christ from all other; his conception by the Holy Ghost, without father and mother, respectively as to his two natures. This stone, falling from the mountain, brake the image in pieces; for Christ is a stone that grinds to powder those it falls on: and he is a growing stone even to a mountain, and therefore will fill the earth.


Discussion for Daniel 2

    This chapter is a testimony that shows that those that look up to God and rely on HIM will stand where others have failed, may we see this as a call to depend on God in every affairs of our life.

    I believe that there is one thing that God cannot do, and it is that He cannot break His own Commandments.
  • Mekus
    Daniel 2 is a revelation of the World's Government from the Babylonian, the Persian, the Greek, and the Roman empires after which God in Jesus Christ shall establish His Kingdom that will last for ever. Verse 45 in Daniel's interpretation explains the mystery of God personified in Jesus Christ. A stone cut off from a mountain without anyone cutting it out, and it broke into pieces all the empires.
