NEBUCHADNEZZAR TO GO MAD FOR SEVEN YEARS
God is opposed to the proud (Jam 4:6). Even Nebuchadnezzar, who had no rivals, could not boast of his accomplishments. God humbled him by making a most inferior creature of him until he repented. Then God restored him. The Bible says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom (Pro 1:7, 9:10). When we respect the Almighty and let Him lead us, He is the One to bring the vision to pass.
NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S SECOND DREAM

Dan 4:25 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox and be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.
Dan 4:32 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.”
