Rock becomes Mountain

In Daniel chapter 2 we are told that the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream. He not only wanted the dream interpreted but that interpreter must also tell him what the dream was. No chance for faking. This interpretation must be a supernatural event.

Only Daniel could interpret this dream. Not because Daniel was great, but in his words, “there is a God in heaven who reveals dreams.” Daniel 2:28

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. 35 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. Daniel 2:34-35

Watch a video portrayal of the dream here


The rock is Jesus Christ and the mountain His Kingdom.

“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. Daniel 2:44

The ultimate hope is Jesus Christ the Rock who became the mountain that fills the earth and endures forever.

At the second coming of Jesus this kingdom will be fully established and endure forever.
