Lessons from the Life of Nebuchadnezzar

Our recent conference was on the topic of the life of Nebuchadnezzar and the object lessons we can gather from this great heathen king.

All audio studies are now published here:


Some of the 15 YouTube videos are also now up:


Through Daniel and others of the Hebrew captives, the Babylonian monarch had been made acquainted with the power and supreme authority of the true God; and when Zedekiah once more solemnly promised to remain loyal, Nebuchadnezzar required him to swear to this promise in the name of the Lord God of Israel. Had Zedekiah respected this renewal of his covenant oath, his loyalty would have had a profound influence on the minds of many who were watching the conduct of those who claimed to reverence the name and to cherish the honor of the God of the Hebrews. – {PK 447.2}

This has been the danger of the people of God in all ages; and especially is this the danger of those living near the close of time. We are cited by the apostle to the unbelief, blindness, rebellion, and repeated sins of the Hebrews, as a warning. Paul plainly states that “all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” If, in these last days of peril, for the encouragement of persons in responsible positions, God in mercy gives them a testimony of favor, they frequently become lifted up, and lose sight of their frailties and weaknesses, and rely upon their own judgment, flattering themselves that God cannot accomplish his work without their especial aid. They trust in their own wisdom; and the Lord permits them, for a time, to apparently prosper, to reveal the weakness and folly of the natural heart. But the Lord will, in his own time, and in his own way, bring down the pride and folly of these deceived ones, and show to them their true condition. If they will accept the humiliation, and by confession and sincere repentance, turn unto the Lord, perfecting holiness in the fear of God, he will renew his love to them. But if they shut their eyes to their own sins, as did the Jews, and choose their own ways, the Lord will give them up to blindness of mind, and hardness of heart, that they cannot discern the things of the Spirit of God. – {2SP 52.4}

    Good morning, Trusting all is well, I have been following John Thiel sermons, my habit is to download the mp3 and listen to these sermons in the car or at work, or when I am studying the lessons with pen and paper. But, the Lessons from the Life of Nebuchanezzar, I cannot seem to download the mp3 from no.2 onwards, the first one came through perfectly. Just before receiving these lessons, I was reading Daniel, and these lessons will help me understand the message from Daniel. I trust that you will be able to help me.
