WIL: Daniel 2-4SummaryWIL: Daniel 2-4 by KaitouSamurai2
Chapter 2 dealt with Daniel telling and interpreting King Nebuchadnezzar's dream when no one else could. The dream was about the coming kingdoms after his own to the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth.
Chapter 3 told of Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah's righteous rebellion of the king's order to worship his idol. They were thrown in a furnace, yet were preserved by God through an angel. The three forgave Nebuchadnezzar, who honored them and God.
Chapter 4 is a letter of Nebuchadnezzar's about his second prophetic dream of his own humiliation. He asks for Daniel's interpretation once more to Daniel's horror. Daniel proclaims that Nebuchadnezzar will live a period of time as a beast of the field for his greed and pride. After this occasion was fulfilled, Nebuchadnezzar recognized the God of Israel as the King of heaven.
Even in this point of the story, God is still very much in control. I think it's telling how we perceive of God

Observation: God is in Control
Summary: Though it seems strange to us, God calls the shots from giving the kingdom of Judah and its Temple items to Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon to bestowing grace on Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah in his very own court. This is due to their faithfulness in God in a pagan land, where an example of their faith is shown in rejecting Babylon's foods that were separated to idols or were ritually unclean, and were thus not permissible to eat as they were Jewish. After a period, they proved that their meals of vegetables and water made them more healthier enough than the others, which also saved the life of their supervisor. The four were also given special wisdom pertaining Babylon, and Daniel in particular is given the gift of interpreting dreams.
Question: What does it mean when God “gives” something
|Me doing the art thing.|
I'm just a Christian who arts for Jesus and geeks out on a whole bunch of things (and arts out on that, too).|
Also, if you have any kind of questions about Christianity, feel free to ask without fear of being shot down. I'm not going to say that I have all the answers, but I try my best when it comes to research and stuff.
