The Troubling Dream of Nebuchadnezzar

In the ancient world, dreams were thought to be visions of future events.  King Nebuchadnezzar's dreams were troubling him and he sought resolution and interpretation of his visions from the wise men of Babylon.  However, the king would not reveal his dreams to them and said if they truly were supernatural men they would know his dream and its interpretation.  God then discloses his dream to Daniel, a vision of a giant statue made of gold, silver, bronze, iron, and clay.  Then, in the dream, "a stone was cut out by no human hand" and struck the statue breaking it into pieces as the wind carried them away leaving no traces behind.  Daniel explained to the king that the statue represented four successive kingdoms based upon power and wealth, beginning with Babylon, while the stone and mountain signified a kingdom established by God which would never be destroyed nor given to another people.
