尼布甲尼撒的梦

尼布甲尼撒是巴比伦王国伟大的国王,在位时约为公元前605年到562年之间。有一天,他梦到了关乎自己未来的可怕的梦。为了解梦,他特地召来上帝的先知——但以理。(但以理书 4:19-23)

但以理书4:24-26   “你必被赶出离开世人,与野地的兽同居,吃草如牛,被天露滴湿,且要经过七期。等你知道至高者在人的国中掌权,要将国赐与谁就赐与谁……”

后来,尼布甲尼撒王变得高傲,认为这国度是他用大能大力建立的。从那时起,他就衰落了。

但以理书 4:28-37  “尼布甲尼撒王……说:「这大巴比伦不是我用大能大力建为京都,要显我威严的荣耀吗?……当时这话就应验在尼布甲尼撒的身上,他被赶出离开世人,吃草如牛,身被天露滴湿,头发长长,好像鹰;指甲长长,如同鸟爪……”

“是我做到”的想法产生的瞬间,尼布甲尼撒王的全部智慧消失,得到了兽心。

骄傲在败坏以先

箴言书 16:18   骄傲在败坏以先;狂心在跌倒之前。

人会在不知不觉中产生骄傲的心,很容易觉得是因为我有能耐才有了今天的成就。想一想尼布甲尼撒王吧。我们成功与否取决于上帝,与个人的能力和智慧无关。是上帝恩赐了一切。我们要懂得时刻心怀上帝,谦卑地献上感谢和荣耀。

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

King Nebuchadnezzar was the greatest king of Babylon who reigned between 605 B.C. to 562 B.C. One day, he had a terrifying dream about what was to happen to him. He summoned Daniel, one of God’s chosen prophet, to interpret the dream for him (Daniel 4:19-23).

Daniel 4:24-26  “… You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox and be drenched with the dew of heaven … until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth

Time passed and King Nebuchadnezzar grew arrogant, thinking that his kingdom was built with his own power. From then on, he began to fall.

Daniel 4:28-37  “King Nebuchadnezzar … said, Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” … Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like the ox. His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird

As soon as King Nebuchadnezzar thought ‘I did it myself’, all his wisdom perished and he was given the mind of an animal.

Pride Goes Before Destruction

Proverbs 16:18  Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

As time passes, we may also become proud. We are apt to think that our success or achievement is due to our own ability. Let us remember the lesson from King Nebuchadnezzar. Whether we achieve something or not depends only on God, not on our own ability and wisdom. All we have, we owe to God. Let us remain humble by being conscious of God, giving all glory and thanks to Him.
