Decreed and Demanded by Watchers

Decreed and Demanded by Watchers

Daniel 4:17 (KJB) This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Nebuchadnezzar knew that the matter was spoken of by angels and demanded of them, but that ultimately, all things rest in the hands of God. 

God does move men into influential and political positions in this world and can just as easily remove any from such power and place according to His will and way.  Simply put, such a person can be there and in charge one day and gone in the next.  This minute by minute changing of the guard can develop and stir like the blowing of a contrary wind all for pleasing God and giving Him all the glory and honor.

When the crowds of this world demand and decree instantaneous changes, you can be confident the God hears their claims and requests.  However, not one person or group, no matter how loud they protest, can influence or change that which God wills. Otherwise, God would operate as a puppet according to the whims and ways set by men in this world rather than a sovereign God.

God exists and operates in the eternal realm.  His way and His desires can and will circumvent any interference propagated by any person in this world.  God is, and forever will be, the ruler of both this world and eternity and will both setup men in positions of power and importance and can remove them at any time according to His will and way.
