Daniel 4: 4- 37, 7:1-14
2 Kings 25: 27-30
Jeremiah 52: 31-34
Nebuchadnezzar's second dream. Was bout a beautiful tree with beautiful fruit and on it was food for all wild animals found shelter under it and the birds lived in it's branches.
As i Was lying in My bed, I also saw in the visions of my mind an observer, a holy one, coming down from heaven. He called out loudly cut down the tree and chop off its branches strip leave and scatter the fruit
But leave the stump in the ground and it's roots and with a band of iron and bronze around it.
In the tender grass of the field. Let him be drenched with dew from the sky and share the plants of the earth with the animals.
Let his mind be changed from that of a man, and let him be given the mind of an animal for seven periods of time.
This word is by decree of the observers; the matter is a command from the hold ones.
This is so the living will know that the e Most High is ruler over the kingdom of men. He gives it to anyone He wants and sets over it the lowliest. of men.
Daniel's explanation Then Daniel, whose name is Belteshazzar, was stunned for a moment and his thoughts alarmed him.
The king said, "Belteshazzar, don't let the dream or it's interpretation alarm you."And so Daniel explans the dream to the king. The tree represents the king for he has become great and strong; his greatness has grown and even reaches the sky, and his dominion extends to the ends of the earth.
The King saw an observer, a hold one. coming down from heaven and saying.
Your Majesty, and this is the sentence of the Most High that has been passed against my lord the king;
You will be driven away from people to live with the wild animals.
You will feed on grass like cattle and be drenched with dew from the sky for seven periods of time. until you acknowledge that the Most High is ruler over the kingdom of men. and he gives it to anyone He wants.
As for the command to leave the tree's stump with its roots, your kingdom will be restored to you as soon as you acknowledge that Heaven rules.
Separate yourself from your sins by doing what is right, and from your injustices by showing mercy to the needy,
Nebuchadnezzar's seven years of Madness At that moment the sentence against Nebuchadnezzar was executed. He was driven away from people. He ate grass like cattle, Andi's body was drenched with dew from the sky, until his hair grew like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds claws.
Death of Jeremiah 570 BC
Nebuchadnezzar is restored and praises God But at the end of those days, I Nebuchadnezzar, looked up to heaven, and my sanity returned to me. Then I praised the Most High and honoured and glorified Him who lives forever.
At that time my sanity returned to me, and my majesty and splendor returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My advisers and my nobles sought me out, I was reestablished over my kingdom and even more greatness came to me.
Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise exalt, and glorify the King of heaven, because all His works are true and His ways are just. And He is able to humble those who walk in pride.
Release of Jehoiachin.
Daniel's vision of the four beasts Daniel wrote down this vision...Daniel said, In y vision at night I was watching and suddenly the four winds of heaven stirred up the great sea. Four huge beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
The first was like a lion but had eagles wings. I continued watching until it's wings were torn off. It was lifte up from the ground, set on its fee like a man, and given a human mind.
Suddenly another beast appeared, a second one that looked like a bear. It was raised up on one side, with three ribs in it's mouth between its teeth. It was told; 'Get up! Gorge yourself on flesh.
While I was watching another beast appeared. It was like a leopard with four wings of a bird on its back. It had four heads and was given authority to rule.
While I was watching in the nights visions, a fourth beast appeared, frightening and dreadful, and incredibly strong. with large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed, and it trampled with its feet whatever was left. It was different from all the beasts before it, and it had two horns.
A While I was considering the horns suddenly another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were uprooted before it.
There were eyes in this horn like a man's and it had a mouth that spoke arrogantly.
His vision of the eternal God. As I kept watching, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days, took His seat.
His clothing was white like snow, and the hair of His head like whitest wool.
His throne was flaming fire; its wheels were blazing fire.
A river of fire was flowing, coming out from His presence.
Thousands upon thousands served Him;
ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.
The court was convened, and the books were opened.
I watched, then because of the sound of the arrogant words the horn was speaking. As I continued watching. the beast was killed and its body destroyed and given over to the burning fire.
As for the rest of the beasts, their authority to rule was removed, but an extension of life was granted to them for a certain period of time.
I continued watching in the night visions.
and I saw One like a son of man coming with the clouds of heaven.
He approached the Ancient of Days
and was escorted before Him.
He was given authority to rule, and glory, and a kingdom; so that these of every people nation, and language should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away. and His kingdom is one that will not be destroyed.
I say Amen, Amen!
Therefore He says; God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. THerefore submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you
James 4: 6-7
