What does Daniel 4:28 mean?

This verse confirms that what God decreed would occur, as shown in Nebuchadnezzar's dream, happened in just that way. The king dreamed of a massive tree which was sentenced to be cut down to a stump (Daniel 4:10–14). His dream included judgment in the form of a period of insanity (Daniel 4:15–17). Daniel explained that the king would be humiliated with madness for "seven periods of time," but would ultimately be restored to rule (Daniel 4:24–26). The following verses record what happened one year after Daniel's visit (Daniel 4:8, 29).

To be sure, God's timing may differ from that of humans, but in His chosen time He will fulfill His promises and prophecies. The apostle Peter writes about the way skeptics will respond to delayed fulfillment of prophecy as if the prophecy is false (2 Peter 3:4). God always keeps His Word. Everything He prophesies comes to pass. The most important of these predictions involve Jesus Christ. His birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension were foretold in the Old Testament and their fulfillment is described in the New Testament. Even the prophecy in Micah 5:2 was fulfilled to the letter. When Jesus was born, two locations were called by the title "Bethlehem." Micah 5:2 specified that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem Ephrathah, a little town about five miles from Jerusalem. Every prophecy concerning Jesus' second coming will be fulfilled too. This fact gives believers a blessed hope.
