OTS-4 - Daniel 5: A Deadly Night Feast
“The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses” (Dan. 4:25). Welcome to our study of “A Deadly Night Feast” from Daniel 5. The background for this text in set in Daniel 4. King Nebuchadnezzar believes that he is the true king, and the one who has, in and of himself, made his kingdom powerful. His heart becomes prideful, and as a result God lowers him, even to the point where he is in the field with the wild animals eating the grass, and the dew of the ground is upon his body. He then realizes that his power is not in and of himself, but is through God. He then gives God the praise for his kingdom. How sad it is that Nebuchadnezzar never taught this lesson to his son. It could have saved him from a deadly night feast.
