Irrespective of which position one holds, it appears no one has identified or applied the clay symbols of Dan. 2:41 and 43, the “potter’s clay”, the “miry clay” or the “iron mixed with miry clay.” As it is the miry clay that unites with the iron, it is logical the kingdom power or powers represented by the symbol of “miry clay”, is not the same kingdom power or powers represented by the potters clay.
The point is not whether iron and clay represents strength and weakness or political and religious kingdoms, (both can apply) the point is what does the potter’s clay and the miry clay represent ? i.e. what types of kingdoms are represented by the symbol of iron mixed with miry clay, who unite and annul their marriages?
