The Beast of the Earth Was/Is Not An Animal - Part 5

In The Beginning

        On the sixth day of creation, God issued a command for the earth to bring forth the living creatures, each after his kind. Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." (Genesis 1:26)

        In general terms, as differentiated from the flying and swimming creatures and from plant varieties, there are two forms of life; animal and human, one the product of the earth, earthly, "after his kind;" the other in the image of God, "after our likeness."

        Each order of life has its special place in the overall plan of creation. As long as those "of the earth" adhered to the dictum, "after his kind," and refrained from crossing the boundaries of their particular species, all was well.

        Equally so, those created in the image of God were to conduct themselves according to the accountability engendered by their preferential status, for Divine satisfaction with His work was expressed when it was recorded: "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." (Genesis 1:31)

        However, in the course of time the Divinely-set barriers were crossed and the resulting defiance of the jurisdiction of the Creator brought about a chain of biological and physiological developments upon the earth leading to dire physical and spiritual eventualities.

        One consequence today is that Negroes aspire to wrest a place for themselves in the White Man's domain. Impetus is given to this Negro intrusion by his very ignorance of his own origin. Martin Luther King, Jr., unconsciously sensed that basically the Negro does not belong in the White Man's society by using a revealing phrase in his statement that the Negro must attain "human dignity."

         King was far more correct than he realized in his intimation that the Negro does not possess the status of the White Man. Actually he never will. He has his place, but the abortive aspirations that urge him on to violently break down the barricade God has placed between the white man and the black can never come to realization.

        A phrase of particular interest appears in the Book of Jude to describe the defection of those angels whom the Apostle Peter says "sinned" before God and are therefore "reserved unto judgment" (2 Peter 2:4)

        Jude says they kept not their "first estate." (Jude 6) In other words, they left their own "habitation," their natural sphere, and invaded another, entering the human plane to marry the daughters of men. This breach took place prior to the Deluge: "And it came to pass...that the sons of God [angels] saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose." (Genesis 6:1-2)

        These sons of God, who were of an angelic order, descended at that time to a lower plane and today the Negroes are aspiring to ascend to a higher plane than their normal station. Both instances involve an invasion of the human sphere, and in each case with the same objective: to satiate incest and gain power over men.

        The Negro who remains in his natural habitat will be at peace, but his illegal encroachment upon forbidden areas, in an effort to obtain rights which are not his, can only produce trouble. In addition to this, the outcome can be nothing less than disastrous for both the blacks and the whites who attempt to amalgamate.

        This very danger makes it imperative to arrive at an understanding concerning the ancestry of peoples and recognize the specific realm of activity assigned to each race. Where are we to find the answers to the many questions raised? There is one unimpeachable source of truth and that is the Bible.

        However, due to Christendom's failure to "rightly divide the word of truth," and analyze the meaning of the descriptive language used in designating the Negro apart from the White Man, the key to understanding has been lost. Knowledge of the true origin of the races will resolve the present racial dilemma and halt the trend to integrate those whom the Bible definitely teaches must remain racially apart.

        We are aware of the identity of the descendants of Jacob in the world today, for modern Israel is found in the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples. Few, however, are cognizant of the fact that this race was dedicated to the service of the Lord when Abraham laid his only son Isaac upon the altar.

        God accepted that dedication and Isaac's descendants, later called Israel and now known as the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples, became His servants. Therefore, through the Prophet Isaiah it was proclaimed: "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen." (Isaiah 43:10)

         A servant race! It is no disgrace to be a servant. The angels of God are properly a serving order and many Scriptural statements bear this out. (See Psalm 91:11-12)

        The original place of the Negro was as a serving order. When the Negro finally becomes willing to resume his role according to the Divine design, he will be in a position to engage in the performance of beneficial labors which will be of material assistance, instead of a hindrance, to the servant people. Herein lies the solution to present-day racial problems, confirmed by the evidence disclosing the origin of the Negro.

An Enigma Solved

        Many insurmountable obstacles hinder the acceptance of the orthodox position concerning the account of creation, as set forth in the first chapter of Genesis, as far as the creation of man is concerned. The endeavor to postulate a common origin, or parenthood, for both the white and the black peoples, as well as those of other shadings and colors, poses a number of problems which defy solution.

        There are basic characteristics setting each race apart by itself which cannot be satisfactorily explained unless the fallacy of a common origin is admitted. There is, in fact, no other logical explanation for the divergences encountered in specific instances as the researcher delves deeply into this subject.

        The physiognomy of the White Man has always been known to be distinct in almost every respect from that of the Negro. Or, to state it in reverse, the Negro people are known to be distinct in almost every respect from the White Race. The exceptions stem from crossbreeding, but this produces the mulattoes, a mixed seed, whose children are misfits in the society of either race.

        Furthermore, it is among the mixed seed that we find the troublemakers who stir up racial animosities, fostering the racial antagonisms which are now rampant.

        It is of primary importance, therefore, if we are to properly evaluate the causes of racial problems, to comprehend the purport of the account as recorded when God said, as translated in the King James version of the Bible: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." (Genesis 1:26)

Origin of The White Race

        The Hebrew word translated "man" is "Adam" and means "to show blood in the face, ruddy; to flush or turn rosy;" that is, a White Human Being. Therefore, when God said, "Let us make Adam in our image, after our likeness," this constituted the beginning of a new creation. Adam was unique in the creative work of God under the special circumstances that brought him into being.

        Obviously, therefore, man was to be distinct from all other living creatures, including the black people. This is the logical deduction that follows a painstaking examination of the phases of the Creator's works of beginning. Accordingly, a careful search of all the Scriptures should not only confirm this but it should also show the Negro, who is so deficient in the characteristics possessed by the white man, to be of a different origin.

        At the very outset, the question is posed: Why is the Negro black? This is directly attributable to his origin and was apparently a Divinely-ordained distinguishing characteristic to draw a sharp line of demarcation between the white and the black.
 
 

The Beast of the Earth Was/Is Not An Animal - Part 6

Segregation Mandatory

        We are well aware that this position will be challenged by those who have claimed a common origin for all the races. All that is asked, however, of those who are willing to pursue this study of racial origins,  a subject that may tend in its inception to arouse strong opposition for various reasons, is that the reader maintain an open mind, seeking the truth as we have sought it, which brought us to investigate this whole subject.

        The revealed facts will speak for themselves and when the truth is fully realized, it will bring an end to the endeavor to institute the deliberate integration of the black among the white people. Quite the contrary, it will reaffirm the absolute necessity for the separation of these races for the good of both the white and the black.

        Moreover, it will demonstrate that this separateness is in compliance with Divine regulations, for it is mandatory to heed the Lord's instructions concerning those who are elevated to places of rulership over His people. The command is: "Thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother." (Deuteronomy 17:15)

        Here we have positive direction that all beings are not to be classified as brothers. This in no wise obviates the necessity to treat every creature with equal justice before the law. Nevertheless, the practice of equity does not require the appointment to authoritative positions those who disqualify as brothers of the people over whom they are to exercise power.

Man and Beast

        Who are the "beasts" who have hands and are associated with man in a different relationship than the four-footed domestic animals? These "beasts" were to put on sackcloth, petition God for mercy and turn from unrighteous practices. In other words, they were creatures who were morally responsible to God and could be judged or rewarded accordingly.

        We are faced with the necessity to conduct a full investigation into this matter, for reference to both Strong's and Young's Concordances lists the many Scriptural uses of the term "beast," either as "beast of the earth" or "beast of the field." Let it be understood at the very outset of this study that the word "beasts," as it is to be defined here, is not necessarily a derogatory term.

        In the fourth chapter of Revelation, beasts are mentioned as worshiping before the throne of God -- an angelic serving order: "And when those beasts [margin: 'living creatures'] give glory and honour and thinks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever." (Revelation 4:9-10)

Reaffirming Man's Dominion

        Further emphasis was placed upon the moral responsibility of the "beast" following the Deluge. First, however, the Lord informed Noah and his descendants: "And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered." (Genesis 9:2)

        This was a restatement of man's dominion over the earth, but with a difference that was especially significant in regard to his association with the "beast of the earth." The words "fear" and "dread" are in the emphatic sense, actually denoting "terror," and this relationship of master and mastered was to act as a barrier to familiarity so that the wickedness that brought corruption upon the earth before the Flood might not be repeated. The purpose was absolute separateness in station. It was stated further by the Lord: "And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man [i.e., Adam]." (Genesis 9:5-6)

        The whole context here indicates that the "beast of the earth" would be aware of man's origin, in the image of God, and therefore could be commanded to abstain from shedding man's blood or else forfeit his life at the hands of man. This commandment obviously refers to a "beast" endowed with an intellect in order to be morally blameworthy for his actions. Certainly he would not be in the category of those called dumb animals or brutes.

After His Kind

        It must be understood next, therefore, that the "beast" [the "living creature"] that is associated with man is not a four-footed animal, a quadruped; he is a two-footed animal, a biped. Actually, he is of the ape species, but he is the most advanced order in this classification. We have already established from the record in the Book of Jonah that this "beast" is intelligent, reasoning and has the power of speech; also, that he has hands as well as feet -- a biped.

        Professor Charles Carroll engaged in profound and copious research to discover the truth about the "beast of the earth," or "beast of the field," and found this "beast" to be of the ape order, or family, but not an ape. He is not human, but an animal order, after his own kind, he is black, he is the Negro. Professor Carroll states: "The Negro, being an ape [more correctly, the anthropoid ape species is derived from the genus of Negroids], entered the ark with the rest of the animals; and as the descendants of Noah spread over the earth, they carried with them the Negroes and other domesticated animals, domestic plants, metallic implements, etc.
        The descendants of Noah developed those superb civilizations, the remains of which are found on every continent of the earth...No Negro Civilization has ever appeared! The White Man is preeminently the man of civilization. This is just what God created him to be."

Subdue The Earth

        It was man who was to have dominion over the earth and "subdue it." (Genesis 1:28-30) The "beast of the earth" is mentioned separately and the conclusion may be logically drawn that a being was created by God in the animal order as nearly as possible like man to take from Adam's shoulders many of the tasks of subduing the earth, maintaining the Garden of Eden and other duties of the earth and the field. It was not until after the fall that Adam was condemned to labor by the sweat of his brow.

        Originally, therefore, the beasts of the earth and field were the true "beasts of burden." It is interesting to observe in this connection that, prior to the Deluge, man was not a meat-eater, nor was the "beast of the earth," for the Biblical record states: "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so." (Genesis 1:30)

        A word of analysis in regard to "every thing that creepeth upon the earth" is appropriate here, for the general opinion is that this is confined to insects and reptiles. However, the word "creep" means "to move along with the body prone and close to the ground or other surface." Therefore, the phrase is more comprehensive than generally understood and includes all four-footed animals that can crouch and move forward, as it were, "upon their bellies." Webster's synonyms comment that "creep" is "used more often of quadrupeds."

Noah's Servants

        When Noah came forth from the Ark, the Lord said: "And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; and with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, as every beast of the earth." (Genesis 9:9-10)

        In the Book of Jasher we find the following verses: "And thou and thy household shall go and gather two couple of all living things, male and female.." (Jasher 5:30)

        Animals are always referred to as "pairs" not "couples."  "...I will gather to thee all the animals of the earth, The Beasts of the Field and the fowls of the air..." (Jasher 6:1); "...and all The Beasts, the animals, and the fowls..." (Jasher 6:2); "...the Lord brought this about on the next day, and animals, Beasts and fowls..." (Jasher 6:3); "And all the animals, and Beasts, and fowls..." (Jasher 6:9); "And the Lord sent all the Beasts and animals that stood round the ark." (Jasher 6:25)
 
 

The Beast of the Earth Was/Is Not An Animal - Part 7

It is to be noticed that the "beast of the earth" is mentioned twice. First, to Noah, God said, "of every beast of the earth with you."

        In the second instance, the final two words do not appear; instead, the "beasts" are included with all those going out of the Ark. Does this not indicate that Noah had servants with him in the Ark, who were "beasts of the earth," to assist him and his sons in caring for the great numbers of animals in their charge, feeding them and bedding them down during the year of the Deluge?

        It would seem so and it certainly stands to reason that a great deal of help was needed by Noah and his three sons in the discharge of this monumental task for the year of confinement within the Ark. Thus, the "beasts of the earth" who remained with Noah would be his servants and the other "beasts of the earth" mentioned would be those who disembarked from the Ark after the Flood receded and went their way.

Murrain and Boils

        The account of the plagues which fell upon Egypt to compel the reigning Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go is a familiar Bible story. However, a closer analysis will reveal a confirmatory truth concerning "man" and "beast:"  "The Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still, Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain." (Exodus 9:1-3)

        This came to pass, but Pharaoh only continued to harden his heart. Therefore, that plague was immediately followed by the next: "And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon BEAST." (Exodus 9:8-9)

        There was no mention of "beast" in connection with the murrain upon the various domestic animals, but here both man and "beast" were afflicted with boils [there are no known animals which have boils]. This is the beast who is closely associated with man as his helper, the Negro, who shared the discomfort of the Egyptians when a different plague came upon them than which came upon the domestic animals.

        Because Egypt has always had a preferential place in the purposes of God as far as non-Israelite nations are concerned, it has also experienced special punishment for arrant wickedness. Through Ezekiel, a prophecy was given that the land would be under Divine chastisement for forty years: "No Foot of Man shall pass through it, nor Foot of Beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years." (Ezekiel 29:11) Notice in this prophecy that the "foot of beast" was not to pass through it, as well as the foot of man. Animals have paws or hoofs, but only a biped has feet as well as hands. This "beast," then, was the Negro who would be with man.

The Hands of The Beast

        When the people of Israel were standing before Mount Sinai to receive the Law from the Lord God Jehovah. Moses was instructed: "Thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying. Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: There shall not an hand touch it [Note: it is a hand, not a paw or hoof], but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man." (Exodus 19:12-13)

        The beast to whom reference is made has hands, just as a man has hands, by which he could have touched the mountain. Here again a creature of the animal world is designated, but one like unto man in that he has hands, a biped. This, then is a reference to the Negro servants who accompanied Israel when they left Egypt.

Providing For The Beasts

        Evidence that the Israelites possessed Negro servants, who were "beasts of the field," is found in the following command: "Six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof: But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard [olive trees]." (Exodus 23:10-11)

        Here we have addition positive proof that the "beasts of the field" were not domestic animals, for they do not eat grapes and olives. Besides, Israel would [nor would God have commanded it] never have turned their cattle, horses, sheep, etc., into their vineyards and oliveyards to browse, trample down and destroy them every seven years.

        The Negroes would gather the grapes and olives and not injure the vineyards or olive trees. The Negro will eat the products of the fields, gardens, orchards and vineyards, and anything else that a man White man will eat.

Confusion

        The inhabitants of Canaan, who were to be driven out by Israel upon their entry into the land, were guilty of committing gross abominations in the sight of the Lord: "For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled." (Leviticus 18:27)

        The Lord warned Israel, therefore, that their continued possession of the land given to them through their forefather Abraham depended upon their strict adherence to the moral laws laid down, for He said: "Ye shall be holy [set apart]: for I the Lord your God am holy." (Leviticus 19:2)

        Among the Divine commands was this injunction against the crime of miscegenation: "Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion." (Leviticus 18:23)

        The reference here is to the "beast" who is nearly like a man, the anthropoidal Negro, who simulates many of man's characteristics and shares his moral responsibility. The violation of this law, and the failure to apply its penalty, brought into being the race of humanoids [mulattoes], with all the far-reaching consequences now to be faced.

A Precautionary Provision

        The Canaanites, whom the Israelites were commanded to destroy when they took possession of the land promised to them, were the owners of great numbers of Negroes, as shown by the following statement: "And the Lord thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest The Beasts of the Field increase upon thee." (Deuteronomy 7:22)

        Observe that there was no fear expressed lest the "cattle" and the "creeping things" increase upon the Israelites! But not so with the "beasts of the field" -- the Negroes.

        Let us bear in mind that the country of the Canaanites was a rich, productive country, "a goodly land;" that it was a high state of cultivation -- "a land flowing with milk and honey;" that it abounded with cities, town, villages, farms, vineyards and orchards. This land was occupied by seven nations greater and mightier than Israel.

        It would have been impossible for the people of Israel to immediately populate the numerous cities, towns, villages and farms and maintain this well-developed civilization. According to the expressed desire of the Lord, the land of Canaan, with its natural wealth of every description, was to become the property of the people of Israel, the descendants of Abraham, His friend.
 
 

The Beast of the Earth Was/Is Not An Animal - Part 8

        If the occupying Canaanites were all destroyed "at once," much of their civilization would crumble into ruins for want of upkeep. It would require centuries for the Israelites to increase their numbers to the extent that would enable them to settle the entire land.

        Hence, it was the better part of wisdom, as the Lord pointed out, for the Israelites to first possess only as much of the land as they could adequately maintain, leaving the remainder, with its wealth and advanced standard of civilization in the hands of the Canaanites to care for and preserve. In addition to this, there was apparently a greater number of Negroes in the land of Canaan than the Israelites could at first effectively handle.

        Therefore, if the Canaanites were destroyed all at once, much of their civilization and accumulated wealth would have fallen into the hands of the Negroes to be wasted and destroyed. Also those Canaanites left were to be used to test Israel to see if they would keep their word, which they did not.

        In their primitive state as beasts of the earth, field and forest, they would be preoccupied with following the chase, not maintaining a highly civilized culture. Also, the prolific Negro would increase very rapidly and would soon become very troublesome neighbors, as Negroes in groups never fail to prove. Finally, it would have been a violation of the Law of God to release the Negroes from the control and protection of their former owners and not give them new masters.

An Identifying Characteristic

        When the modern Christian is approached, either pastor or layman, with a query about the identification of the "beast of the field" or "beast of the earth," he will very likely reply, "These are the domestic animals, sheep and cattle, and those of draft and burden, such as the horse and the oxen, with which we cultivate the fields."

        It is well known that our domestic animals subsist on grass, hay and the cereals. Not one of them is a flesh-eating animal. But the Biblical "beast of the field" is a flesh-eating creature; he is the worst form of flesh-eating animal; he is a man-eater, a cannibal, as shown by the following Biblical incident: "And when the Philistine [Goliath of Gath] looked about, and saw David he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of fair countenance. And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to The Beasts of the Field." (1 Samuel 17:42-44)

        Notice, in the first place, that the Philistine giant, who was a mixture of bloods, was incensed against David, not only because he was a young man, but because he was "ruddy and of fair countenance," bearing in mind that "ruddy" means "to show blood in the face; rosy": David was a White Human being. David was a pure-blooded youth (This we know is true because if he had not been born of pure blooded parents he would never have been able to be the King of Israel (Deuteronomy 23:2) and this, in itself, infuriated the coarse, idolatrous champion of the Philistines.

        After cursing David, he threatened him with death, after which his body would be thrown to the "beasts of the field." Among the "creeping things" of the earth, the quadrupeds, there are numerous carnivorous animals that will feed upon the flesh of man, but the Negro is the only "beast" [biped] that will feed upon the flesh of man.

        This is amply testified to by the wide-spread cannibalism among the black tribes in Africa. Hence, the "beasts of the field," to which the Philistine said he would give the flesh of David, and the "beast of the earth," to which David said he would give the flesh of the Philistine, were identical.

        This indicates when Adam named the animals, he gave the Negro the descriptive title: "beast of the field." Both the Philistines and the Israelites recognized the Negro as a beast. Sometimes he is known as "beast of the earth" and he is frequently referred to simply as "beast."

        It is significant that David referred to the "wild beasts of the earth," for this would properly designate those Negroes with cannibalistic propensities. Further support of the fact that the "beasts of the field" are flesh-eaters is given by the Biblical account of Rizpah's touching exhibition of motherly devotion in guarding the bodies of her sons who were hanged by David's order: "And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air [vultures] to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field [cannibals] by night." (2 Samuel 21:10)

Additional Identifications

        The Prophet Jeremiah was informed by the Lord about the coming captivity of the southern Kingdom of Judah. At the same time he was instructed to tell the surrounding non-Israelite kings that they would be compelled to serve Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, whom the Lord called "my servant."

        Animals would not be able to act as servants to the king, but the "Beasts of the Field," who were Negroes would certainly be able to serve Nebuchadnezzar.

        They were all to be brought under the yoke of Babylon, for world dominion was to be delivered into the hands of the monarchs of the Babylonian Succession of Empires for a specifically-named period [Seven times or 2520 years].

        Therefore, the Lord commanded Jeremiah to say on His behalf: "And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and The Beasts of the Field have I given him also to serve him." (Jeremiah 27:6)

        The records of history disclose that slaves from various Negroid tribes acted in this capacity in the palaces and homes of kings and nobles in every age. Later on, when the doom of oblivion was pronounced upon Babylon, the record states: "So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even all these words that are written against Babylon. And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and shalt read all these words; then shalt thou say, O Lord, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever." (Jeremiah 51:60-62)

        Today the region around the ruins of Babylon abounds in game. Wild, four-footed animals make their lairs there. But the "beasts of the field," the Negroes along with man himself, are there no more; nor will the Arabs even pitch their tents there.

The Price of Arrogance

        In the Book of Daniel the story of King Nebuchadnezzar's period of temporary insanity is told and newly-revealed information now provides a greater comprehension of the details of this account. Daniel warned Nebuchadnezzar of the consequences of his pride and arrogance, giving him the interpretation of his prophetic vision concerning what would befall the king: "They shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will." (Daniel 4:25)

        Nebuchadnezzar was to dwell with the "beasts of the field," the Negroes who served him, living with them in their quarters while he was insane. They would make him eat grass as oxen; that is, they would feed him as they fed the oxen.

        They would compel him to remain in the open field, without shelter from the elements at night, for this was their dwelling place. We have here a literal fulfillment of Jeremiah's prophecy, for he had foretold that the "beasts of the field" were to be given to Nebuchadnezzar "to serve him." His Negro servants cared for him day and night and undoubtedly protected him during those seven years of madness from enemies who would have slain the king and seized his kingdom. This story has a happier ending than many taken from life's pages, for King Nebuchadnezzar's sanity was restored, as he himself testified: "At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me." (Daniel 4:36)
