Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans. The Babylonian empire was considered the greatest empire in the Bible according to the book of Daniel. It is likened to the One World Empire of the beast in the Book of Revelation by John.
King Nebuchadnezzar ruled from about 600 – 560 years before the birth of Jesus who is Christ. He was famously known as the king who conquered the Southern Kingdom of Judah, sacked, burned and destroyed Jerusalem. He also killed and carried away as captive slaves the people of the tribe of Judah aka the Jews. The prophecies of the major prophets of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel tell the story of this king. The story is also in the last chapters of Kings and Chronicles.
Judah was to be taken captive for seventy (70) years as punishment for sin. Ezekiel tells of the many abominations Judah did of which many were from their Babylonian neighbors. Look at Jeremiah 10 and read about the tree and think about December and think about it….. Judah also picked up on Sunrise services worshiping the SUN, not the SON. Think Easter SUNrise services and SUNday and not SONday.
God must have figured they do not want me for King I shall give them another king and see how they like it. King Nebuchadnezzar had a monument and it mentions his three sons: One son Evil-Merodach who succeeded him is mentioned. How about a name like Evilmerodach?
Nebuchadnezzar set up temples and shrines to the heathen satanic gods. Some of the names of these “gods” are Sin, Gula, Ramman, Mah, Marduk, Nebo and Zarpinat, and Shamash. How about a god named “Sin” …hmmm Could these be names of the devils or demons who fell with Satan?
We read the following the Lord said to Cain. Gen 4:7 – “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. (Did God just say SIN lieth at the door.) And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” HIS DESIRE? RULE OVER HIM? Daniel is asked by Nebuchadnezzar if he can tell the King the dream as well as interpret the dream. Daniel states no mere man can do this, but there is a God in heaven who will tell the king what will happen in the latter days. This is outlined in Daniel chapter 2. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are mentioned also.
