Daniel 4:25

…”till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses”


Daniel 4 37

Daniel 4:37

Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.


Nebuchadnezzar was a slow learner

Nebuchadnezzar was a slow learner

Chapter one = The dietary laws of Israel’s God are better.

Chapter two = God tells the King his dream and thefuture.

Chapter three = Only Israel’s God can deliver and

frustrate the commands of earth’s greatest ruler!


Nebuchadnezzar was a slow learner1

Nebuchadnezzar was a slow learner

In spite of all of the revelation he had been given AND the warning he received from the Lord, Nebuchadnezzar still refused to humble himself and honor the Lord.


Seven times

“Seven times”

Israel was told to honor the Lord with the Sabbath.

______________________________________

But there was more than one Sabbath.


Seven times1

“Seven times”

One Sabbath involved the seventh dayeach week.

______________________________________

The other was to be kept every seventh year.

Leviticus 25:1f.


Seven times2

“Seven times”

Israel failed to keep the yearly Sabbath…for 490 years!

________________________________

In other words, they ignored it 70 timesand went into captivity for 70 years as a consequence.

Jeremiah 25:8-14


Seven times3

“Seven times”

Daniel “got it” and stood in Israel’s stead, confessing their sin, as they had been told to respond.

Daniel 9:1-4; Lev. 26:40-45; 2 Chron. 6:36-39


Seven times4

“Seven times”

Israel’s punishment was for disobeying “70 times 7” or 490 years.

They were in captivity one year for every Sabbath year missed.

They had to “get it”.


Seven times5

“Seven times”

Interestingly, Israel’s future kingdom would arrive in 490 years, or 70 times 7…

but only after they “got it” and repented.

Daniel 9:24-27; Joel 2:12f.


Seven times6

“Seven times”

The book of the Revelation focuses on that last seven year period when the Gentiles of the future are given seven years to “get it” like Nebuchadnezzar.

_____________________________

During that time, Israel “gets it” and repents!


Seven times7

“Seven times”

God always gives plenty of time!


And the point is

“And the point is…?”

The importance of being teachable.

Luke 10:38-42


And the point is1

“And the point is…?”

Do we get it?

Do we learn our lessons? Or, are we like Nebuchadnezzar?Do we just mouth the right words, maybe even in sincerity, while failing to “bring forth fruit in keeping with” our repentance?
