The name ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ refers to the king of Babylon who is a type of the coming Antichrist and someone used of God to punish the Jews and put them in bondage
Kanye West has just announced that he is now turning his attention to producing an opera called ‘Nebuchadnezzar’, which is really interesting for a number of reasons, the main reason being that Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible is a type of the coming Antichrist. The book of Daniel tells us that Nebuchadnezzar created an ‘image of gold’ 60 and 6 cubits, and he demanded that the people fall down and worship it just like the actual Antichrist does in Revelation 13. Nebuchadnezzar is a bad guy, and why on earth would someone who is claiming to now be a born again Christian want to create an opera around a type of Antichrist? It’s like producing a play about Hitler and then identifying with it. Mind boggling.
“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” Daniel 3:1,4-6 (KJV)
Not only is the image of gold that Nebuchadnezzar creates 60 and 6 cubits, Daniel tells us that there are also musical instruments that will be playing to inform the people that it’s time to worship the image of Nebuchadnezzar. How many instruments are there? You could probably guess, 6 of them. Why are musical instruments connected to worshipping the image of gold? Because Lucifer was the ‘music minister’ in Heaven before his rebellion, and he has been controlling music on earth ever since. Just like Kanye West is playing the role of end times Pied Piper and leading Laodicean Christians down the primrose path to their own destruction, and like Nebuchadnezzar and like the coming Antichrist, he is using musical instruments to do it.
- THE KANYE WEST DECEPTION: The Truth Behind The ‘Jesus Is King’ Deception
The Kanye West deception is slick and smooth, and he has a huge portion of the church eating out of his hand. He is so sure of his ability to deceive that he has the boldness to create an opera dedicated to a type of Antichrist, and proudly call it ‘Nebuchadnezzar’. Nebuchadnezzar is not a good guy, he is a bad guy of the highest order, and this is how Kanye West sees himself, as a type of Antichrist. He even had his designer create promotional material showing what they thought was the evil and terrible ‘image of gold’ that Antichrist Nebuchadnezzar forced the people to worship. (actually they put King Darius as the artwork instead of Nebuchadnezzar, but you get the idea). And what was the name of the magazine where Kanye first broke this news? It’s called Pitchfork!
If you cannot figure this out by now you are not only deaf, dumb and blind, you are likely unsaved as well. Wake up, church, wake up, the wolf is not only at the door he is now inside your house.
ADDENDUM TO THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE: We had so many deceived Christians on Facebook defending evil king Nebuchadnezzar that I needed to write this quick blurb. First of all, no, Nebuchadnezzar did not write Daniel 4, Daniel wrote it and he uses the king’s first-hand account in the first 18 verses of the chapter before reclaiming the narrative in verse 19. Secondly, yes, the king says some nice things in chapter 4, mostly because he is happy to have his kingdom back. But are any of these swelling words backed up with repentance? I do not see it if they are. And nowhere do we read what God thought of the king’s “conversion”, why not? Certainly God could have spoken through Daniel to tell the king that God had accepted him, and yet, we do not read that anywhere. If I am missing something here please let me know. If Nebuchadnezzar really did believe in God, then WHY didn’t he release the Jews he took captive? Certainly a truly repentant man would have done that. Why didn’t he RESTORE what he had stolen from the Temple in Jerusalem? Don’t people who get right with God make amends, especially in the Old Testament? No, he went right on enslaving the Jews as he had for the previous 70 years. Yes, chapter 4 of Daniel records some nice words, but where do we find action behind those words? 🤔
Kanye West announces his first-ever opera, ‘Nebuchadnezzar’
FROM YAHOO NEWS: The announcement arrived a few hours after West paid a visit to renowned televangelist Joel Osteen at his Houston megachurch to discuss his recent commitment to Christianity.
“I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time. Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him,” West declared.

Like much of his latest “Jesus is King” album, the rapper is drawing inspiration from the Bible for his first-ever opera, which will premiere on November 24 at Los Angeles’s Hollywood Bowl.
The name “Nebuchadnezzar” refers to a king of Babylon who was famously driven insane for seven years in the book of Daniel, as he refused to acknowledge that his power, wealth and influence were from God and not of his own making.
As Pitchfork pointed out, West mentioned the ancient Babylonian monarch during a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, while talking about his “Yeezus” tour.
“God is saying, Let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character — Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this. I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’– I had a guy dressed as Jesus,” he said.
The upcoming opera will be directed by West’s frequent collaborator and Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, who has previously assisted the musician on his “Runaway” short film and the scenography of his Yeezy fashion shows.
“Nebuchadnezzar” will also include music by Yeezy’s Sunday Service collective as well as Peter Collins & Infinities Song. READ MORE
