    I am interested in a discussion of this passage of scripture. Here it seems to me to establish the fact that there is not a particular election concerning just Israel, nor just the prophets and apostles, but the passage is declaring God's sovereignty among all the inhabitants of the earth. I also believe this extends beyond just the general context speaking to Nubuchadnezzar and Babylon, but that it encompasses our own generation and those to come as long as the world stands.

    In light of my view, not that you didn't already know my view, and this scripture how can we continue to contend for the argument that man has a free-will that would give him an ability to choose good over evil?

    God Bless.

    Brother Dallas,

    I have duly noted the Sovereignty of God in this passage before us. Before I read your post I had the word sovereignty written down three times once in vs. 25 'the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and in verse 26 'that thou shall have known the heavens do rule.' And lastly, in verse 32 where it says, 'tht the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whomsoever He wills.'

    Do you think after Nebuchadnezzar's return from the field and back to his sanity, do you think he was actually saved/converted to God? . . . in the light of his wonderful testimony in vs34-35. Yes, and verse 35 indicates His direction in the affairs of human beings.

    How many do you know who have had the experiences of NEBUCHADNEZZAR? Yes there are some, even in low places who are humbled by circumstanses not of their making. However, God allows man to choose his course. He reminds us that He is the author of life and death and tells us to choose life.
