Modern Day Nebuchadnezzer?

Bill Gates Gives Lutherans $539,000 for Sudan Relief Work

Bill Gates, arguably the most powerful atheist in the world, has donated a large sum of money to Lutheran World Relief (which is based in my home town of Baltimore).

Jeremiah 27:8 (New International Version)
8 "If, however, any nation or kingdom will not serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon or bow its neck under his yoke, I will punish that nation with the sword, famine and plague, declares the LORD, until I destroy it by his hand.

If the Lord could use mean old Nebuchadnezzer as his instrument, why not the "Overlord of Microsoft"?

The proceeds will fund humanitarian work in southern Sudan.
