Bible Prophecy / Think Tank
Class Three

 

 

For Class Three the student will apply some of the fundamentals learned in Classes One & Two. Students are encouraged to apply all the fundamentals and techniques learned in the first two classes. By this time the students will have all the basic fundamentals to apply to the next five (5) Bible Prophecy / Think Tank Classes. 

In this third Bible Prophecy / Think Tank Class we shall now focus on The Mighty Empires mentioned in the Bible.

The Mighty Empires are:

  1. The Babylonian Empire of King Nebuchadnezzar who ruled this empire and was responsible for the destruction of the 1st Temple Mount of Israel in 587BC which was first built by Solomon in 960 BC.  
  2. The second Great Empire was that of the Medo-Persian Empire or the Achaemenid Persian Empire of 539 - 331 BC, one of the largest empires of the ancient world.  The identification of Medo-Persian is based primarily on the vision of the Ram and the Goat, where the kings of Media and Persia, Daniel 8:20 are represented by the ram's two horns. Daniel 8:3. Prophecy scholars maintain that this beastly empire represents a combined Medo-Persian Empire, i.e., a single empire.
  3. The third Great Empire was that of The Grecian Empire of Alexander the Great, 331 - 197 BC.
  4. The fourth of the Great Empires was the Roman Empire, a Mighty Empire under which the 2nd Temple Mount of Israel which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD and was rebuilt by Herod the Great who was made King of the Roman Empire from 37-25BC, from 25-14BC and from 14-4BC. The Roman Empire was the mightiest, most dreadful Empire of all the Mighty Beasts into which Jesus was born. 

The worst is jet to come which is the Holy Roman Empire, which contains the Mark of the Beast leading up to the Second Coming of the LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.      

The Mighty Beasts

Images of King Nebuchadnezzar's Bad Dream 

The Holy Roman Empire is where we are right now.  This is the worst of all beasts. We shall focus on this Beast, which involves all of us in our modern times of today, and compare it with current events in the Middle East using the tools and the fundamentals we have learned in the Bible Prophecy / Think Tank classes.

Daniel 2:1  And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar  Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. Daniel 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. 

 

Daniel 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.

Daniel 2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.

Daniel 2:5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

Daniel 2:6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.

Daniel 7:4-7

4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast,

dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

The students are encouraged to monitor the news of the Middle East and the broadcasted news surrounding the State of Israel and the Palestinians in the troubling events threatening global peace. The students are encouraged to bounce the Bible Prophecy off of the events taking place around the State of Israel, a State in the Holy Land that is constantly on a war footing. We will see how incredibly precise the prophecies of the Bible really is in unfolding what is actually going on in the Middle East.  

We shall hold Class Think Tank Discussions
