If it is not written do not worry
Daniel 2:45 -
Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
The book of Daniel is divided into 2 parts according to the language it was written. Chapters 1 to 6 was written in Aramaic and chapters 7 to 12 were written in Hebrew. This was done by purpose because the disclosures of prophecies in the first 6 chapters are more earthly / worldly and the second 6 chapters are more spiritual. Aramaic was the language of the people at that time and Hebrew the language of the Sanctuary. For example the little horn in chapter 7 is not really a kingdom, although it's got the status of a kingdom it is actually an institute which rules over the people. On the other hand the statue of different metals connected to the dream in chapter 2 was purely earthly kingdoms.
In today's message the scripture talks of a stone which will crush all these kingdoms. People think the stone is a kingdom and think Jesus will come and rule the world as a man for a thousand years.
This stone spoken here has something special about it which helps identify it. The stone is said to be 'a stone cut out of the mountain without hands'. If we look at scriptures there is only one set of stones which were cut without the hands of man and those were the tables on which the Lord wrote His Commandments. Thus this stone too is not a kingdom but part of the Word of God in another word means prophesy.
In today's message the Lord is telling us everything in this world which has been given power is also bought down by His Word. People sometimes ask me how I am able to speak about world events before their time.
One should realize all major events are already given in scriptures. The Lord has allowed them for a purpose but also has written their end. The Bible is not a history book having everything in detail but has all historic events which are of concern for the people of God. If any event is not written in the Bible then the people of God need not worry about it for it will pass by without making much effect to God's people.

Exodus 34:1 - And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
Daniel 7:8 - I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
