“Some readers may be puzzled by the exclusion from king Nebuchadnezzar's dream of any reference to countries outside the Middle East and Europe. What, for instance, about the mighty Mongol empire of Genghis Khan, modern China or the United States? Bible prophecy does not overlook the extra -European nations, as we shall see more clearly when we study the Dragon, the Beast and the two horned creature of Revelation 13.

Daniel 2 is only one of several prophecies which it introduces. It presents an outline. Other chapters fill in the details. We believe, moreover that the feet and toes include some nations outside, but descended from Europe.

Nebuchadnezzar's dream does not predict future events in general but only those concerned with salvation history. It is also interesting to note that the Holy Land was ruled by each power depicted, from Babylon right down to the Crusaders who maintained their Kingdom of Jerusalem for almost a century, from 1099 to 1187.

The prophetic statue is demolished by the Second Coming at a time when history will again find its focus in Western Europe. We therefore think that Japan and other Asian ‘Tigers,’ apart- perhaps- from China, will fail to realize their optimistic dreams of becoming super powers early in the new Millennium.”

(Edwin de Kock, Christ and Antichrist in Prophecy and History, 2013, p.47)
