Jehovah`s Witness/Nebuchadnezzar's dream 2,520 years invented by the Jehovah's Witnesses

Question
The whole concept that one can apply the "seven times" in Nebuchadnezzar's dream to "seven prophetic years" of 2,520 years  has been invented by you people, its claimed by you that the destruction of Jerusalem through Nebuchadnezzar [alleged to have occurred in 607 B.C.] began the times of the Gentiles which allegedly ended in 1914 when God allegedly reestablished His Kingdom in heaven but on a closer review that entire concept is biblically unconvincing.

Modern Babylon is not a combination of the USA and the Catholic Church, as it has been suggested, and, in passing, the modern Medes are not the Iraqis, either.
modern Babylon is identified in Revelation 17 as the "WOMAN riding the beast." That woman is a religious power which has been sitting on the LAST SEVEN POLITICAL AND MILITARY REVIVALS of the ancient Roman Empire. It is true that modern Babylon also describes the military and economic aspect of the Babylonian SYSTEM in Revelation 18, but the fact that the woman (the religious system) has been riding the last seven revivals of the beast (the political system) MUST NOT BE NEGLECTED. This PROVES that Babylon has not been dormant for 2,520 years. Quite to the contrary, BABYLON has been ALIVE and WELL for many centuries prior to 1982.


Babylon the great... exactly fits Papal Rome." Ungers' Bible Handbook states that the woman "denotes a religious system... the woman has her headquarters in the Beast's capital, which is the seven-hilled city of Rome

To say that biblical Babylon was inactive for 2,520 years since its fall in 539 B.C. is historically inaccurate


The biblical prophecies and the historical records prove beyond the shadow of any doubt that the dream in Daniel 4 could not possibly be construed as a prophecy, stretching over 2,520 years, beginning with the fall of Babylon and an alleged revival in 1982.


The dream in Daniel 4 related strictly and exclusively to the life of ancient King Nebuchadnezza and nothing more,prove me wrong.

Answer
"The dream in Daniel 4 related strictly and exclusively to the life of ancient King Nebuchadnezza and nothing more"



That statement makes no sense,why would bible believers be interested in a man going insane,I mean what lesson does it teach us thousands of years later ,why is it recorded in scripture by God if it has no fatidical meaning.

Of course to you it doesn't just like the dream itself the Demonic priests couldn't tell him its meaning.


(Daniel 2:27) 27 Daniel was answering before the king and saying: “The secret that the king himself is asking, the wise men, the conjurers, the magic-practicing priests [and] the astrologers themselves are unable to show to the king.. . .


So yes to Christendom its just a lesson of a crazy man for 7 years and thats it,but just like Daniel said:


(Daniel 2:28) 28 However, there exists a God in the heavens who is a Revealer of secrets, and he has made known to King Neb·u·chad·nez´zar what is to occur in the final part of the days.. . .


So his dream points to our time not what you are saying.


The reason it makes no sense to you is the same reason the Demons had no clue to the dream is your god is the Devil not Jehovah,he like Daniel has revealed the truth to his witnesses,all you get out of this account is a man went crazy.


Daniel told the king about the gigantic image he had dreamed about and what it meant.how can anyone tell what another man dreamed about unless he was a prophet.

Even when the three Hebrews then present did not share in the ceremony and was threaten God was able to save them from the fire.


Nebuchadnezzar would be insane for seven years and then would regain his sanity and his kingdom

Jehovah sent that dream to Nebuchadnezzar of the huge tree,The tree represented Nebuchadnezzar. Just as the trunk was banded for seven years,All of this was a prophetic pattern not what you teach, Nebuchadnezzar pictured Jehovah’s worldwide rulership. At first, this was exercised through descendants of King David in Jerusalem. When Babylon conquered Jerusalem in 607 B.C.E.,


Its not invented its scriptural ,there would never be another king in David’s line :


(Ezekiel 21:25-27) . . .“And as for you, O deadly wounded, wicked chieftain of Israel, whose day has come in the time of the error of [the] end, 26 this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, ‘Remove the turban, and lift off the crown. This will not be the same. Put on high even what is low, and bring low even the high one. 27 A ruin, a ruin, a ruin I shall make it. As for this also, it will certainly become no [one’s] until he comes who has the legal right, and I must give [it] to him.’



I know this verse means nothing to you but it shows it be from 607 B.C.E. until Jesus would begin to reign,Seven prophetic years. 2,520 years.



And 2,520 years from 607 B.C.E. brings us to 1914,try hard as you will no one can disprove this because its biblical,they have changed the date to 586,587 said the Jews didn't return in 537 and then it was 539,then most now agree with us it was 537  ,they had to because 539 is a
pivotal Date in bible history and in secular history.



The overthrow of the city of Babylon by the Medes and Persians under Cyrus. The Bible records this event:


(Daniel 5:30) 30 In that very night Bel·shaz´zar the Chal·de´an king was killed

Various historical sources (including Diodorus, Africanus, Eusebius, Ptolemy, and the Babylonian tablets) support 539 B.C.E. as the year for the overthrow of Babylon by Cyrus.

The Nabonidus Chronicle gives the month and day of the city’s fall
Secular chronologers have thus set the date for the fall of Babylon as October 11, 539 B.C.E.

When one examines the historical record concerning the fall of the city of Babylon in 539 B.C. to Persia




Why is this important,because if they returned in 537 that means they left in 607 70 years earlier,simple math now,even you can get 607 from this not 586.


Its dumb to admit Babylon was overthrown in 539 and the Jews returned in 537,but it shows how much more dumb Church people are,the Devil has the info there for all to see,he understand for the most part Church people are not spiritual and leave the research to the one who they pay for spiritual guidence,the Pastot/Priest/Preacher/.
