Text: And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)

Tweet: According to Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s nightmare, the feet of iron and clay of the kings’s dreamed of nightmarish image represents the fact that the world’s final superpower will be pulled apart by the polarizing partisanship of its people Although this end-time Rome will be strong and not done in by any external threat, it will be done in from within—pulled apart by the pathological partisanship of its hopelessly polarized population.
