THE 2520 DANIEL 4.
Now lets turn to Daniel 4 where it was revealed that the king of Babylon was to suffer from a form of madness for a period of seven times. [READ 4v16]. A time as we've seen donates 360 days, so 7 time equates to 2520 years.
This was to commence after the tree denoting the Babylonian power is cut down v14, the stump banded by Iron and Brass, and then wetted by the dew of heaven. The metals Brass and Iron denote the Greek and Roman empires as explained in the image in Dan 2 as seen by the king of Babylon in his recurring nightmares. So we understand that the destiny of the Babylon kingdom would be perpetuated by the Greek and Roman empires for seven times or 2520 years after which the Babylonian power would be restored.
The period commences, v14, when the tree is first cut down, which commenced when Babylon was overrun by Cyrus the Persian, in BC 538. The fleeing of the beasts v14 denoted the release of nations from the Babylonian servitude by Cyrus, but Babylon wasn't finally destroyed as a city until BC 514, by Darius, after the Euphrates was again diverted from its channel (as Cyrus had done years before), and after a 20 month siege. 2530 years from BC 514 brings us to AD 2007, after which we understand from v34 that there will be the restoration of a great king over the empire of men. Such a king of fierce countenance will fall in the vale of Jehoshaphat, at the battle of Armageddon, in the time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. At that time the kings of the earth will be made to know that the Most High liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom from generation to generation.
So we understand from this vision that from 2007 onwards, a king of fierce countenance, the king of the north will arise and start to make his move in preparation for the great battle of Armageddon, involving all the kingdoms of this world.
