Antichrist’s Kingdom of Iron and Clay
“And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay. They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay” – (Dan.2:41-43).
The last empire
of iron and clay feet is the empire of Antichrist. This is Satan’s super empire
with the greatest superpower ever seen on planet earth. Antichrist’s empire is the
The Lord Jesus made clay and anointed the eyes of the blind man and gave him sight (Jn.9) and I’m trying to give you spiritual insight into the clay feet of Nebuchanezzar’s image. Clay always means people in the Bible, created by God out of the ground and fashioned by God as the potter fashions clay vessels. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” – (Gen.2:7). Again – “Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay: and wilt thou bring me into dust again?”– (Job.10:9). Again – “But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand” – (Is.64:8). There is a red clay and black clay and white clay as God as created a rainbow of people. I want you to consider in this sermon red iron earth and red clay earth forming the feet of the image. It looks the same, but one is strong and the other weak. It’s the American Empire and it’s Antichrist with feet of iron and clay.
Now what is the
clay in the feet? That which makes the
empire of Antichrist weak, that makes it a divided empire – iron mixed with
miry clay. The people shall mingle together, but like iron and clay they don’t
cleave together. “They shall mingle
themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another” – (Dan.2:43). It points directly to our great weakness in
Our blacks and
whites don’t cleave together in love. Instead of the church preaching the
gospel to ‘every creature’ and fulfilling the great commission, we whites
refuse to preach to blacks, and have segregated churches – this is heresy. And
this heresy has permeated our society and politics. It divided our country in
the 1800’s with our Civil War and has given us riots in our cities over civil
rights in the 1960’s. It has kept blacks out of positions of power in all
aspects of our society and has greatly weakened
And the bottom line is sex between blacks and whites – the great taboo. To cleave together and two becoming one flesh as husband and wife. The south had laws against this called ‘miscegenation’ until recently. Interracial marriage was considered a felony in half our states. In many parts of the south, a black man could have been hung on a tree for merely looking at a white woman the wrong way. Most preachers in the South “forbid to marry” blacks and whites even though both are born again and this is the main reason they don’t want blacks in the church and preach against ‘mongrelization of the races.’ And this is totally against the scriptures. Because they look at people on the outside and not the heart – “For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” – (I Sam.16:7). We can plainly see the sex with the words ‘the seed of men.’ God cares about a black heart, not a black skin – it’s sin not skin. Interracial sex is seen as the worst possible integration of all and muddles the purity of the white race.
God is also showing us this truth with the black boxer Cassius Clay during the 1960’s as well. He was named after the U.S. Abolitionist Cassius Marcellus Clay. But he joined the Black Muslims and changed his ‘slave name’ to Muhammad Ali. He very proudly called himself ‘The Greatest.’ Like Antichrist he had a mouth speaking “great” things – (Rev.13:5). Will Antichrist have a Moslem name?

I believe that
the root cause for segregation in our nation is the segregated church because
they preach this heresy. The most segregated and divided time in
God has been longsuffering and merciful with our nation that espouses liberty for all and yet we deny liberty to blacks to attend the church of their choice to hear the gospel and get saved. When blacks go to all white churches or all white Bible schools, they are asked to go elsewhere and let them know they’re not wanted. This is totally against the scriptures and a stench in the nostrils of God. God’s marching orders for all His preachers is His great commission to “Go ye into al l the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” – (Mk.16:15). Every creature, every color, every nation, Jew or Gentile – EVERY CREATURE. How would you like federal troops forcing you to integrate your church instead of doing it because of love to black sinners who need Christ? “Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” – (Prov.16;18).

Antichrist being a child of interracial marriage or miscegenation will make him a counterfeit of Christ, a poor imitation of Christ’s birth, in order to more easily deceive. It’s a counterfeit of Christ’s Incarnation, the union of divinity with humanity in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the God man. His father was God and a human woman was His mother. He was miraculously and supernaturally conceived in the womb and born of a virgin. His earthly foster father was Joseph and was his human father since the day of Christ’s birth, but He gave all the glory and honor to His heavenly Father to show us that He was in fact the Son of God and not just the Son of man. He truly is the most interracial child ever born on earth – to say the least.
When a person repents of his sins and by faith believes on Christ in his heart and receives forgiveness of sin, He becomes a new born again creature in Christ. We are born of God the Holy Spirit and become a child of God and cry out in our spirit, Abba-Father. We are born again by the greatest Daddy in the universe - we become “partakers of the divine nature” – (2 Pet.1:4). We have a human mother but now God is our Father - an interracial birth – amen. Jesus said – “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7).
When we’re born again we no longer belong only to the human race but also to the heavenly race. And our Heavenly Father will give us a heavenly body, an incorruptible, immortal body. “As we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” – (I Cor.15:49) – yes, interracial. Trade in your corruptible earthly (clay) body for a heavenly body.
Receive the Lord Jesus as Savior – be saved today.
Receive Eternal Life – be born again.
