Nebuchadnezzar, The Bird Man

The judgments of God can be very uncommon. One such example is what happened to the mighty king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, who was the world power in his day. God knows how to humble the proud and showed such by how he dealt with him! In Dan 4:33 we read:

Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like cattle. 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.

Nebuchadnezzar lost his sanity for a time period. During that time, he appeared as a 6 foot tall, grass-eating, bird-man with feathers and claws! Imagine what it would have been like to see him then in the wild. Trying to convince others what you saw might not have been easy! Chances are some might have ignorantly scoffed!

God can do anything, even reduce the king of the world power, to that low degree. We are told repeatedly to fear God. To disregard that advice is to be dangerously deceived and is spiritually self-destructive!
