Dan. 4: 14 He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:
I could write a long message on this chapter but do not wish to do so right now.
but to head you into this:
This is past, present and future. as all Scripture is.
but for the past:
It was when Adam was driven out of Eden. Seven heads or the four full kindgoms run over while he is out with the beast of the field…. = men of this world.
Daniel interpreted it to Neb. for him personally. This is the dust interpretation, which is all most people ever see.
But see, Adam was driven out and became as an animal or beast.
The glory of this kingdom will actually be restored in the kingdom of Christ. It will not be as it was then, but the same glory.
Now it shows the crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus was cut off then and left as a beast for seven churches. Do you see this?
He scattered the power of the holy people during this time.
They, (church) became as a beast with claws etc. but at the end of those days, or seven churches, His Glory will be restored to him and his kingdom will then fill the earth and glory will be forever.
Much more could be said, but if you can see this, you can fill in all the rest.
