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 U.S. Empire. We are the sole superpower of the world – the Pax Americana – the revived Roman Empire of the end times. We have conquered Babylon-Iraq with our beastly empire.


   The U.S. was formed and created by these European nations that were part of the old Roman Empire. We are an extension of them. We were established as a colony of them, and those colonies became Jamestown VA, and Plymouth, Mass. Like Rome we have turned from being a republic to an empire. This unprovoked war in Iraq is showing us this. We are the aggressors, not in self-defense but in self-offense. We are now an empire and we await the emperor soon to come – the president for life of the Imperial-dictatorship of the U.S.A. – the Antichrist-Beast. He will be the greatest idol the world has ever seen and the world will worship him and his image.


   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 the U.S. – the black and white problem that has divided this nation from the beginning and made us weaker. A nation of half slave states and half free states. A segregated church and nation. Blacks and whites mingle together but they don’t cleave together.


   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 U.S.


   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?


   You can plainly see the iron and clay as you travel through Dixie. You can see miles of red and black and white Kaolin clay. You can see these scriptures come alive especially in Alabama. Alabama is called ‘The Heart of Dixie.’ The constitution of the confederacy was drawn up in Montgomery and it was the capital of the Confederacy. Jefferson Davis took the office of president there. And M.L. King became pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery in 1954. In 1956 he led the Montgomery bus boycott to abolish racial segregation on buses. This is considered the beginning of black civil rights in the U.S. Montgomery is called ‘the cradle of the confederacy’. In 1963 Gov. George Wallace tried to prevent integration in Alabama schools. The largest protest against segregation was a 5 day march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. The iron and clay doesn’t cleave - amen.


   But we especially see the iron and clay of segregation in Birmingham, Ala. It is 75% black and 24% white. In addition to the abundant clay soil, it is the South’s leading iron and steel producing center. It lies at the foot of Red Mountain which has large deposits of iron ore. In May, 1963, thousands of Negroes demonstrated against racial segregation there. Birmingham was the epicenter, the crucial battleground of the Civil rights movement. We remember Bull Conner’s police dogs and fire hoses and the KKK  bombing of the church killing four black girls. Surely we can see a divided nation – “the kingdom shall be divided” – (Dan.2:41). A segregated nation, an iron and clay nation that does not cleave together in love. President Lincoln said this about our divided nation just before the Civil War ‘A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this nation cannot endure, permanently half salve and half free.’


   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 America is 11 o’clock on Sunday morning. And after centuries, we have not repented of this vile sin of being a respector of persons and not loving our neighbor and eradicated it in our churches. We will stand in judgment before God because of our segregation preachers who have no love for his lost black neighbors and yet claims to love Christ. God may very well give U.S. the Antichrist to rule over U.S. – a wicked man to rule over our wicked nation – “That the most High God ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men” – (Dan.4:17). And he may be a black Antichrist-President who could bring great persecution upon our churches, especially the segregated churches. It will be pay-back time for the white’s oppression of blacks for over 400 years. Segregated churches will surely bring down the wrath of God upon U.S. soon because it goes directly against the gospel of Christ.


   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).


   There is a black man running for president of the U.S. who fits the scripture perfectly for the empire of the Antichrist-Beast, the feet of iron and clay of (Dan.2). As God’s watchman I’m blowing the trumpet of warning about Senator Barack Hussein Obama. Obama is exactly what Southern whites have always feared the most. He is the child of sex between a white woman and a black man – of an interracial marriage. His mother was a white woman from Kansas and his father was a black man from Kenya. He is half Kansan and half Kenyan. He grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia with his higher education in N.Y. and Mass. His father left him when he was two years old and his mother left him to be raised primarily by her parents in Hawaii. He considers himself a black man. “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me” – (Job 3:25). Obama is a living, breathing embodiment of miscegenation and he’s using this as a marketable asset everywhere. It’s the flashpoint of white guilt that not too long ago was unthinkable to talk about, but is winning him votes today.


   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.
