I was watching National Geography. One of the things they showed was how Shanghai World Financial Center, the tallest building in China and the third tallest in the world was built. What interest me was about the rise of China in controlling the world financial power. When the commentator mentioned how it was constructed by using tons of iron and cement, immediately I reflected to the Book of Daniel about the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar and the statue with toes of partly iron and clay.
Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.
Dan 2:43 And as you saw the iron mixed with the clay of the clay, they shall be mixed with the seed of men. But they shall not adhere to one another, even as iron does not mix with clay.
Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other people. It shall break in pieces and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
Now could these be a symbolic building of the statue with toes of iron mixed with clay? Even in Kuala Lumpur you will notice that the bank buildings are among the tallest. Nevertheless, we all agree that we are in the end time. The God of Heaven will set up His kingdom that can and will never be destroyed. Amen.
Let us declare Revelation 11:15 together : "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever." Hallelujah!
