Kings in the Ancient Near East earned their position through victory in battle. Nebuchadnezzar proved a competent and successful military commander and assumed the throne of Babylon upon the death of his father. The king’s court would consist of counselors and advisors from a variety of expertise. The wise men or magi were spiritual advisors to the king. What happens when spiritual advisors have no spiritual power and no connection to the omniscient Spirit of God?

Daniel 2:1-49

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, Of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father” (Philippians 2:10-11). Unbelievers will bow and confess at the great white throne judgement (resurrection of the unrighteous). At this point it is too late for salvation. Today is the day of salvation. In the day you hear his voice do not harden your heart. If you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9)
