Prophecies from the Book of Daniel
The Chronological Parallels Between Church History and the Old Testament Unlock the Book of Daniel
This prophecy from the Book of Daniel was fulfilled with the coming of Christ. It seems it has a dual fulfillment as it also seems to prophesy the coming of Antichrist. The chronological parallels between the Old Testament and Church history give a key to see this fulfillment also in Church history.
The Statue Dream of Nebuchadnezzar prophesied about the kingdoms that would rule over the Jews until the First Coming of Christ. Because the Old Testament is a prefigurement of Church History, then this prophecy can be seen to have a second fulfillment in Church history. See the paralleled kingdoms/governments that rule over Italy (and the Vatican) presumably until the Second Coming of Christ.
This prophecy's fulfillment is given to us in the Douay Rheims Bible footnotes for this passage. However, there seems to be another fulfillment in Church history which is made clear because of the parallels between Church history and the Old Testament.
