The dream of Nebuchadnezzar which was interpreted by Prophet Daniel, showed the world’s dominant kingdoms from Babylon to the Roman empires, etc. That everything came to pass literally shows that Jehovah is indeed “[the] God of gods, [the] Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets” (Daniel 2:47). He also spoke of another kingdom which “break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44). That kingdom is the everlasting kingdom of Christ to which all believers belong today.
The passage under review is an instruction to Jeremiah to make yokes and send to the kings of surrounding nations – Edom, Moab, Ammon and so on, instructing them to yield themselves to the rulership of Nebuchadnezzar whom God called “my servant”, who was to rule all nations and his son and grandson. He declared that He made the earth and all things in it and gives it to whomsoever He wills (verse 5). Anyone who failed to submit to this king will be punished by God.
Jehovah is the only true God that declares the end from the beginning. What a great privilege to be a child of this great God. What a great privilege to have His Book, the Bible, through which He has revealed His attributes of love, holiness, mercy, omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and faithfulness to man. There is nothing He says or does that is an afterthought. He knows what will become of everyone who fears Him. Let us, therefore, worship Him for He is our God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
God rules in the affairs of men.
