  • In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king
    of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to
    Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord gave
    Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with
    some of the vessels of the house of God and he
    brought them to the land of Shinar, to the house
    of his god, and he brought the vessels into the
    treasury of his god.

Some Principles from Daniel 1
  • The Babylonian Exile of the people of Judah was
    inevitable, and it was necessary for Daniel and
    his three friends to accept that Daniel 11-2
    cf. also Jeremiah 251-14 291-9.
  • Daniel and his friends could participate in
    Babylonian culture provided they did not
    violate the law of God Daniel 13-8.

10
Some Principles from Daniel 1
  • God was not averse to providing protection
    within the culture for Daniel and his three
    friends Daniel 19-14.
  • God was faithful to Daniel and his three friends
    for their obedience Daniel 115-21.

11
Applications
  • This period from the history of Judah (Daniel
    Ezra-Nehemiah Esther) best mirrors the situation
    of the church today.
  • Our loyalties are first and foremost to the
    kingdom of God second, our loyalties are to the
    nation in which God has placed us.
  • Simply put, we are Americans (or Romanians, or
    Mexicans, etc.) second we are first and foremost
    citizens of Gods kingdom.
  • We must never uncritically equate any political
    or cultural entity with the kingdom of God.
