Dan. 3:4-5 “Then the herald loudly proclaimed, ‘This is what you are commanded to do, O peoples, nations and men of every language: As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up.”
Here is a wicked king, King Nebuchadnezzar, with absolute power who set up an image that must be worshipped. He has declared a global decree: “All people, nations, men and women of every language must bow down to the image!” Disobey him and you’ll lose your life. So what exactly is happening here? What is Nebuchadnezzar doing? I believe he is uniting world religions into one religion!
We have known that in Daniel 2, he has a dream of an image that represents five divided kingdoms that was struck and smashed by a Rock. That’s what made it weak. So the king’s thought is to unite religious beliefs in the worship of his image to avoid a divided kingdom! Note also that this new image is 60 cubits by 6 cubits! (Remembering that the number 6 is the number of man). In the last days, this shall happen again as we read in Revelation 13:11-18. A king will rule the entire earth and will unite worship unto himself. The Second Beast shall set up an image that the entire earth has to worship. One religion once again! And he will give that image power to speak and cause those that will not bow down in worship to be killed. That is where things are heading. As it was in the days of Daniel 3, so shall it be again.
