Daniel's opening chapter sets the stage for what will come. The explosive first chapter of Daniel's book highlights two kings--Jehoiakim and Nebuchadnezzar who were enemies; two countries -- Israel and Babylon who were enemies; and two gods, the God of Israel and the gods of Babylon, who were enemies. Daniel;s description of this hostile situation sets the stage for what will come. Babylon had proven to be the more dominant military power. But there was an extremely important caveat.; God had orchestrated the defeat of His people because of their grievous sin. this was divine punishment for Israel but also part of His plan for the ultimate redemption of the earth. In basic, fundamental terms, this was all about the conflict between God and Israel on the one side and Satan and the Gentile nations of the world on the other side, which had begun centuries earlier in the Garden of Eden. it was because of the grievous sin of the nation that God permitted the tragic events which befell Jerusalem to occur in the days of Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 1:2). The city would be captured, and the Temple would be desecrated and destroyed.
