What is to take place in the days of these kingdoms?


"And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed:
. . . but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever." Verse 44.
NOTE-This verse foretells the establishment of another universal kingdom, the kingdom of God.
This kingdom is to overthrow and supplant all existing earthly kingdoms, and is to stand forever. The time
for the setting up of this kingdom is to be "in the days of these kings." This cannot refer to the four
preceding empires, or kingdoms; for they were not contemporaneous, but successive; neither can it refer to
an establishment of the kingdom at Christ's first advent, for the ten kingdoms which arose out of the ruins
of the Roman Empire were not yet in existence. It must therefore still be in the future.
