Crisis Point - Daniel 1:1

Jehoiakim became the vassal of Nebuchadnezzar in the summer of 605 B.C. The king of Judah might have been deported if the conqueror had not received bad news; his father had died on August 15 or 16. Nebuchadnezzar hastily returned to Babylon by way of the Arabian Desert to secure the throne for himself. He arrived either on September 6 or 7, 605 B.C., and on the same day ascended to the throne. Now the conquering hero was king of Babylon, which would become the greatest empire of history under his shrewd leadership.

Nebuchadnezzar took the fastest way to Babylon. The members of the royal family of Judah, along with the articles from the temple of God, were taken on the longer trek around the Fertile Crescent. This exportation began the fulfillment of the prediction Isaiah made to King Hezekiah, more than a century earlier.

"Hear the word of the LORD: The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your fathers have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left,
says the LORD" (2 Kings 20:16-17).

The prophetic future had arrived for Judah—God rules!
