Toes of the Image

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #7

Toes of the Image

“His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay ” (Dan. ii. 33).

Daniel says nothing about the toes, and therefore it seems to us to be pushing the symbolism beyond “what is written” to insist upon finding five toe-kingdoms in the West, and five in the East.

True, in the vision of the “Fourth Beast” (Dan. vii.7), we have ten horn-kingdoms, but they were all connected with one head, and no indication given as to their occupying eastern and western positions.

“ After this I saw in the night-visions, and, behold, a fourth beast, terrible and powerful, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.” (Da 7:7 ASV)

As Brother Roberts remarked:

“It is a beautiful idea, but if we push it too far it will only be to our own confusion”.

Therefore, let us not waste time and provoke needless discussion in endeavouring to locate the exact whereabouts of the ten horn-kingdoms.
