We can clearly see this at work in our own country. In spite of his efforts, George Washington feared party politics would develop in the U.S.; and it didn’t take long to manifest. Before he even left office two parties had developed. Back then they were called the Federalists and the Democrats. The Federalists were led by Alexander Hamilton, and the Democrats were led by Thomas Jefferson. The tension between these two top advisers to poor George no doubt caused him to grind his wooden teeth at night—one reason he never smiled. Today, the Democrats of the 1700s, who favored individual and state rights, would be considered Republicans; and the Federalists, who wanted bigger government, would be called Democrats.
We can also see strengths and weaknesses in both parties as well as strength and weaknesses in having two parties. We can trace some biblical principles to both parties. We can also see having two parties provides a check and balance system. In our iron and clay parties we can also see one party is clearly more biblical and the other more evil. The Democratic party of the U.S. actually voted to remove God from its platform a few years ago; and the last Democratic president, Obama, openly criticized the Bible and Christians. In the new Republican president, Trump, we can clearly see an agenda to favor the Bible and Christians.
The pendulum swings back and forth. While thinking of writing this blog, I heard an interview of Robert Redford speaking of the Sundance Film Festival say,
“The idea is that presidents come and go. The pendulum swings back and forth…so we don’t occupy ourselves with politics.”
I wondered how he knew what I was thinking of writing about.
Under Obama the pendulum could hardly swing any further left, and so now it has again begun to swing right. This seems to me a type of check and balance system that God Himself has put into governments to keep them from going in one extreme for too long–although “long” is a relative time term in God’s usage. Even communistic Russia, after being devastated by that ideology is now moving more toward the right. Currently in most of Europe, the pendulum is beginning to swing right after being left and being left devastated in many ways I might add. As I said, one side always seems to be more biblical than the other. Jesus said concerning the judgment of nations that the goats would be on the left and the sheep on the right.
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left” (Matt. 25:31-33 NKJV).
The minions of the New World Order have chosen the goat ideology of the left. We do not know how far or how long the pendulum will swing right. This, however, we do know: It will eventually swing back very far left into goat territory for three and one-half years. It looked like the NWO was almost far enough left to implement their goals until God played and sounded His surprise Trump.
While Daniel’s vision of the statue has been applied to nations, it could be applied to individuals as well. We all have some iron and clay in our feet that cause us to be unbalanced in all areas. We have a war going in inside of us with the flesh against the Spirit,
for the flesh doth desire contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit contrary to the flesh, and these are opposed one to another, that the things that ye may will--these ye may not do (Gal. 5:17 YLT).
The only person who was ever perfectly balanced was Jesus Christ. The more we become like Him, the more balanced and stronger we will be.
Also James said speaking of two opposing views in Christians, the iron mixed with clay making his feet “unstable,”
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways (James 1:6-8 NKJV).
The New Word Order planners don’t seem to understand that there can never be a permanent one-global nation while doing away with all the sovereign nations. They just don’t get that iron does not mix with clay. One reason they want to eliminate borders and throw the gates of all nations open to anyone is to destroy national sovereignty to create a giant one-world government. We already see the results of this in Europe with immigrants from many Muslim nations going into European nations assaulting people and raping women and causing other crimes to spike. It has thrown many nations into chaos. The two differing ideologies are not blending well.
Sweden is the most liberal nation in Europe and has taken in the most refugees. Thousands of Swedish women have been raped by them. I saw one article on rape in Sweden that predicted 1 out of every 4 women would be raped! There are areas where migrants have settled that the police will not enter because they are so dangerous. Sweden has done more than any other nation for these migrants by giving them homes, jobs, money and just about anything else they could want. A reporter and film maker, Ami Horrowitz, went to Sweden to film some of the gangs and interview people. He was beaten by a gang when he tried to film them. When Horrowitz interviewed women there, he asked them if the migrants were to blame for all the crimes and rapes they commit. These Swedish women—so brainwashed by liberalism—blamed it on their nation not helping them enough! The NWO propaganda machine has done its job well in Sweden! He interviewed police who said they were afraid to do much because they would be called “racists.” We think political correctness is bad in America! As hard as Sweden is trying, they just can’t seem to mix that iron with the clay. However, they are in total denial about it. I don’t need to say anything about Germany and France since their migrant problems have been in the news so much.
The statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream represented empires. The feet made of iron and clay represent an empire of the end times—apparently the NWO empire according to many end-time teachers, books, and commentaries. Here is how Daniel interpreted the statue:
“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all--you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 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. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will 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 consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold--the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure” (Dan. 2:36-45 NKJV).
I think this interpretation of the fourth kingdom could be applied to the U.S. today. However, I believe with many others that its ultimate fulfillment will be in a one-world government. I have read that they have already divided the world into ten regions to be ruled by ten “kings” (the ten toes).
We know from the book of Revelation that this kingdom will only last for three and a half years. So even though the servants of Satan have been working on this plan for decades if not centuries, it is doomed to failure from the beginning because of the mixture of iron and clay—even as Hitler claimed he would have a thousand-year Reich, but it lasted only 12 years.
The kingdom Jesus set up is the stone that will smash all of the other kingdoms in the end as Daniel says. We see a biblical picture of this when David, representing the kingdom of God, throws the stone and knocks down the giant Goliath. The ideology that Jesus taught will ultimately prevail—particularly during that three-and-a-half-year reign of the anti-christ. The kingdom of Jesus will last a thousand years and beyond to eternity. The contrasts between the two kingdoms will be so clear at that point–as well as the conclusions that each lead to–many will give up on the beast ideology and embrace Christianity. So many of the Christians will be walking in such supernatural power that they will be a great witness and help to undermine the kingdom of darkness. Ultimately light will overcome darkness, love will overcome hate, and Jesus will stop the devil. If the NWO proponents would only read Revelation, they would know everything they have worked for will last only three and a half years before getting terribly beaten, humiliated, and condemned for eternity in the lake of fire. Somehow they thought they could mix iron with clay.
