Wesley's Notes for Daniel 4:35


4:35 As nothing - A due consideration of God's infinite greatness, makes the creature appear as nothing; creatures are nothing to help, nothing to hurt, nothing in duration, nothing solid and substantial, nothing without dependence, and influence, and support from God. His will - Being the Lord of hosts, and the only absolute and universal monarch of the world.

    Like so many of us that have been blessed and refuse to acknowledge the poor, abused, and oppressed. Your pride will make the Lord a base you. If your truly a child of God!

    God took control of The Kings Life from the beginning by putting Daniel in His court. The Chaldeans were the smartest around in that day and spoke Armenian; later on, some of them were Christianized by the disciples and their followers, these believers are very persecuted even to this day.
    The King put out a decree that the subjects of His Northern Kingdom would know the Mosiac law.

    We must remember that God is in control. The Lord is able and will bring us down, if we fell to recognize Him. He has is a mighty God!

    Praise God, who releases understanding as he pleases, that king must have gone what we call today as mental illness. God decides what is good for us, God decides what to do with us to bring us closer to him, closer to each other and humble us together for His glory. To bring back the ultimate glory to Himself. The king Nebuchadnezzar is a perfect example, thank God who keeps us safe.

    THIS SCRIPTURE HELP ME TO EXAMINE MY SELF AND TO HELP OTHERS TO EXAMINE THERE SELF ,TO KNOW WHO GOD IS AND WE ART TO HUMBLE OUR SELF ,AND TO ALLOWED GOD TO EXAULT US IN EVERY WAY.

    I looked up "Esdras" in Wikipedia, since I didn't want to spend the time actually reading in it; and what I read, I didn't like. It apparently has some so-called visions of Ezra, and him asking questions of God; which in my opinion don't match up to the kind of man of God Ezra really was. For example; how could he think that misery and punishment is unjust for a people who obstinately refuse God?
