Government and religion, the literal meaning of the iron and the clay in Daniel’s vision. The two things people will rise up to defend. Why is there so much emotion associated with these two? The answer is in their spiritual meaning. The iron symbolizes the spirit, which along with the clay governs us from within. Emotion is spirit. Like spirit, you can’t see emotion, but you can see the effects of it. The clay symbolizes the word; the word being the sum of all of the false beliefs we have molded throughout our life, which is responsible for man’s declining emotional state.
“Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.” Daniel 2:31-35
“The head of gold symbolizes the doctrine of the Catholic Church. The breasts and arms of silver symbolize the doctrine of Trinity. The belly and thighs of brass symbolize the doctrine of Pentecost. The legs of iron symbolize the political power that gives strength to the religious image. The feet, part iron and part clay symbolize the mixing of politics and religion… – The Bible Decoded
The spirit of man’s government stands in opposition to the Spirit of God. And the word of man-made religion, through its false beliefs, stands in opposition to the word of God. Man is entering the new age in a terrible spiritual state due to the lying spirit and word at work in government and religion, mirroring the lying spirit and word that is at work in the mind and heart of man. The only way to turn things around is to sacrifice our unholy spirit and word (Psalms 51:17, Jeremiah 23:36). I do not believe that it is a coincidence that a man named Trump is running for president. I see a strong connection between the name and the biblical event that bears the name. I believe that Trump will be the last president of a truly free America if there is not a drastic change with regard to government and religion, requiring a drastic change with regard to the unholy power that is currently ruling the mind and heart of man. “In a moment and a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (1 Corinthians 15:52). This is the word of Paul; the word of man-made religion, teaching that one is instantaneously changed upon what Christians call the rapture. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). A lying word or doctrine that Christians have accepted as truth. They claim to experience this spontaneous change within themselves the moment they accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior, claiming to be born again and saved during this emotionally-charged state; changed in a moment and a twinkling of an eye, which is contrary to what Jesus and the Prophets taught. Paul’s doctrine has caused Christians to skip over the spiritual works necessary for true change, contributing greatly to leading mankind down a destructive path. Paul’s words still have many Christians waiting upon a physical return of Jesus, at which time those that “believe” will take part in the rapture. Not only does the word “rapture” not appear in the scriptures, it is not physical. It is spiritual (emotional) as we see in its definition. The word rapture means the state of being transported by a lofty emotion; ecstasy, which may have already taken place in the mind of the born again believer, but not in his heart; a spiritual ascension the children of Israel would have illustrated for us had they ascended the mount as Moses had instructed them to do.
The last trump sounded for the children of Israel on the third day. The children of Israel are called “the chosen people” because they were chosen to represent us the people. We entered the third day with the new millennium.
“As the children of Israel came to this third day, so too have we. A day in which something most holy is to take place. The holy thing that is to take place is the sowing of God’s holy seed, a marriage, like that of Cana of Galilee; a spiritual intercourse between God and His bride Israel. At the sound of the shofar, the children of Israel are to ascend the mount. Now it was on the third day, when it was daybreak: There were thunder-sounds, and lightning, a heavy cloud on the mountain, and an exceedingly strong shofar sound. And all the people in the camp trembled. Exodus 19:16 (The Five Books of Moses). But the children of Israel could not ascend the mount because of fear… ” – The Bible Decoded
It is the daybreak of the third day. We are, as of the writing of this article, sixteen years into the third day. To ascend the mount, which symbolizes the heart, is to surmount (overcome, triumph over) the painful emotions associated with the false beliefs of our heart, which keep us in spiritual bondage. This is why, America, the country that stands for freedom, is about to loose what so many have died to preserve. We are being given one last opportunity to preserve our physical freedom by overcoming our spiritual bondage. Every fifty years the Israelites celebrated what is called Jubilee, a time when slaves were set free, and alienated property was restored to its former owners. What we have alienated ourselves from, and what is to be restored during the time of Jubilee is the spiritual power we relinquished when we chose lies over truth. We must restore this spiritual power if we want to be free. The “Declaration of Independence,” along with “The Constitution” make up the foundation upon which our great country was built. It is the true foundation, keeping us free for over 200 years as the true foundation laid through the spiritual teachings of Jesus over 2000 years ago brought spiritual freedom to those who heard (obeyed) them. Our governmental and spiritual foundations have been severely compromised, corrupted by those seeking an unholy power through these systems. It is a self-serving power, generated through monetary and spiritual greed; signs pointing to man’s lack of holy spiritual power. It is not a coincidence that this year, 2016, is a Jubilee year. Which candidate will uphold our Constitution, and do their level-best to fight against the power that is hell-bent on destroying it? That power, described in the four horsemen (Revelation 6:1-8) was put into place in the 1760’s by Mayer Amschel Rothschild; banker and the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty. Today it is known as the Bilderberger Group; a group of elitists who hate Donald Trump because he is a nationalist, not a globalist. Nationalist: a person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations. America, which in the past has used its power to help other nations, must now use all of its power to save itself from this global power, whose goal is to establish One World Government, the iron that will give its power and strength to the clay; to One World Religion, whose law will be oppressive!
