Ezekiel 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. (KJV)
When we look at the book of Daniel, in chapter two it gives us an understanding of the King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. In this interpretation, it talks about many kingdoms. The first kingdom is the head of gold which is King Nebuchadnezzar, he then talks about the chest and arms of Mede/Persia. The next part of his interpretation is the kingdom of Greece. It was started by Alexander and then we see by the end of it with Antiochus IV Epiphanes. The two legs, are talking about the Roman Empire and the other leg was the Roman Catholic Church. Finally he came down to the two feet and ten toes of iron and clay. The feet talk about a governmental structure and a religious fervour which don’t mix. When we looked at the Roman period, we have the Roman government and Roman Catholic Church who had supreme power. The Roman Catholic Church does not have that power anymore.
When we look at Daniel’s final stage of the interpretation we come to the feet, in Daniel 2:33-42. The feet are made of iron and clay and this kingdom of the iron and clay has ten toes. Ten represents governmental structure, wherever we see ten, it is talking about governmental structure. The Iron talks of absolute dominance while the clay is talking about ineffectual wishy-washy leadership.
With the European government and the Muslin living in Europe, we see symbolically the ten toes, five are iron and five are clay, and iron and clay don’t mix together. When we take a religious fervour that is ideological mixed with political aspiration of dominance and mix it with political power which is trying to please everyone, they don’t mix. The clay is the government of Europe and the iron is the Muslim uncompromising ideological stance. When clay comes in and contacts with the iron, the clay starts to break away. The iron toes are relating to the Muslin going into the Europe with a view of dominance, either by outgrowing the local populations or forcefully trying to bring change.
