But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Now if you would take just a moment and read Daniel Chapter 2. What in this chapter makes this a mystery? It’s not a trick question. We know it’s not the head made of Gold. That was Nebuchadnezzar, right? Breast and arms of silver. I believe they solved that mystery by determining that the kingdom was divided into four parts and given to his generals. I actually do t remember what the belly was but if it’s that important to you, it’s no mystery so you can find that information on the internet. Anyway, that brings us to the legs of iron and feet mixed with iron and clay.
its legs of iron, and its feet partly iron and partly clay. While you were watching, a stone was cut out, but not by hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from summer threshing-floors that the wind blows away. Not a trace of them could be found. Then the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Daniel 2: 33-35
If you read this today and it’s meaning is no longer a mystery, Daniel 12:4 has been fulfilled.
When you make for Me an altar of stones, do not build it from cut stone, for if you use a tool on it, you will have profaned it.
Exodus 20: 25
Then Joshua built an altar to Adonai, God of Israel, on Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of Adonai had commanded Bnei-Yisrael, as written in the scroll of the Torah of Moses, an altar of uncut stones on which no man had wielded any iron tool. They offered on it burnt offerings to Adonai and sacrificed fellowship offerings. There on the stones he wrote a copy of the Torah of Moses, which he had written, in the presence of Bnei-Yisrael.
Joshua 8: 30-33
Keep my mitzvot and live, my teaching as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Proverbs 7: 2-3
Now when you cross over the Jordan, you are to set up these stones about which I am commanding you today on Mount Ebal, and coat them with plaster. 5 There also you will build an altar to Adonai your God, an altar of stones—you are not to use an iron tool on them.
Deuteronomy 27: 4-5
Moreover, I will give you a new heart. I will put a new spirit within you. I will remove the stony heart from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36: 26
