Book of Daniel Summary: Rockefeller Plaza and United Nations Sculpture Reveal

We currently live in the Church Age where the numbers are being continuously added to God's kingdom. This age started after Pentecost, when Christ ascended into Heaven, placing the start of the church around AD 33. As we witness global events unfold before us, there seems to be a spiritual commonality among Christians: making sure you are in the faith. There's been a new revealing of sculptures in the United Nations and at the U.S. Rockefeller Plaza that have similarities of the beasts mentioned in the prophetic books of both Daniel and Revelation. In this post, we'll evaluate biblical prophecy with a book of Daniel summary, relate prophecies in Daniel to Revelation, and cover the new statue revealings at the Rockefeller Plaza.

Book of Daniel Summary Part 1: The Statue in Daniel 2

When reading prophetic books, there needs to be an understanding of the language they are being written in. Not understanding this vital piece of contextual evidence can set the course to spiritual disaster for the reader. Daniel and the Book of Revelation are such prophetic books both heavy in both literal and spiritual metaphorical language. Daniel was written by the prophet Daniel around 535 BC with the recording of events between 605 and 535 BC, whereas Revelation was written by the disciple John around AD 95. To understand the book of Revelation, it is often precluded by the studying of Daniel. Within these two books, there are mentions of beasts, statues, and kingdoms.

Daniel 2:31-45

“Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.
