The Kings of Babylon | Week 1: The Seduction of Pride
In the Old Testament, the reigns of four powerful kings—Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Darius, and Cyrus the Great—stand out as significant symbols during the Jewish people’s 70 years in Babylonian captivity. Although each of these kings came from a pagan background, all were ultimately used as instruments in God’s hand, with one king freeing the Jewish people through an unlikely decree. In his new series, The Kings of Babylon, Pastor Robert Morris brings to life the stories of these four ancient kings and relates them to the struggles God’s people still face today and, more importantly, His redemptive plan that awaits us all.
This weekend, Pastor Robert begins this series with a message titled “The Seduction of Pride” where he uses the biblical story of King Nebuchadnezzar to show how the enemy uses pride to attack us.
