When God created the world it was perfect. He created Adam and Eve with the ability to choose whether they wanted to follow Him or not. Satan tempted Eve and she chose to follow Satan instead of God. Right then God put into place a plan to redeem, or buy back, Adam and Eve and the whole human race. He promised that one day He would send a Savior. The Bible traces the course of God’s people through history. At one point, when His people had refused to listen and instead followed their own inclinations, they were captured by Babylon, an enemy kingdom. During their captivity the king had a dream about an image. God gave Daniel, one of the wise men taken into captivity, the interpretation of the dream. This dream can be found in the book of Daniel, Chapter 2. The dream was a prophecy and explained what would happen in the future – all the way down to the time we are living in today. At the very end of the dream "a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them”. Daniel Chapter 2 says that the statue represented kingdoms. The rock represents Jesus’s second coming. The head was the kingdom of Babylon, the chest the kingdom of Medo-Persia, the waist and hips the kingdom of Greece, and the legs the kingdom of Rome. The feet made of iron and clay represent a time in history when there will be no major world-wide dominating kingdom. We are living in the time of the feet. Jesus is coming again soon. He promises that He is coming back to take us home to Heaven with Him. We can have confidence that He is with us and loves us.
