  17. The Captivity Daniel, Ezekiel Clock 11

  18. The Captivity - Clock 11 • Judah has been devastated • God’s chosen people • The great nation God promised to Abraham • The land God gave them as an inheritance • All seems to have come to a tragic end • God’s Condition: “….'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel." ……Then all the people answered together and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do….”(Exodus 19:3-8)

  19. The Captivity – Clock 11 • The generation of Moses’ day was sure they could keep God’s commandments, however: • They built a golden calf within 6 weeks of agreeing to worship no other gods (Exod 19:8; 24:3,7) • The Israelites murmured many, many times • Were warned many times they had to obey God • Deuteronomy sets forth the conditions under which they would be allowed to keep the land • Chapter 28 shows one of the most vivid descriptions of their destruction

  20. The Captivity – Clock 11 • Choices • The word “IF” tells man that he has a “choice” • Israelites had a choice (Deut 30:15-20) • Man today has a choice to make “and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9) • Joshua warned them before his death (Joshua 23-24)

  21. The Captivity – Clock 11 • The Prophets: • When the Israelites served God – He fought for them • When unfaithful – He allowed an enemy to oppress them • Instead of learning lessons as they should have, the conditions worsened in the land • The Lord sent prophet after prophet to warn them of impending doom • The people would not listen • The prophets wrote their messages as proof that God did warn them • Israelites made their own choice to go their own way

  22. The Babylonian Empire - Clock 11

  23. The Captivity – Clock 11 • The prophet Daniel • Was taken captive in the first group (606BC) • Trained to serve in the king’s palace • Given honored positions in the kingdom • Evidence shows that the Jews were allowed to establish prosperous and comfortable colonies along an irrigation canal called the River Chebar • Many Jews longed for the day to return home! • The warning of the prophets had great meaning now • They knew that they must obey God’s law

  24. The Captivity – Clock 11 Nebuchadnezzar • Made Babylon the chief city of the world • Covered 200 square miles • Walls surrounded the city • Some wide enough for chariots to pass on top • Babylonians not as cruel as the Assyrians • Tended to leave all people exactly where they found them as long as they accepted Babylonian rule • Nabonidus was the last actual king • Left Belshazzar in charge in Babylon on the night God’s handwriting on the wall pronounced Babylon’s doom

  25. The Captivity – Clock 11 • EZEKIEL • Was taken in the second group of captives • Lived in a Jewish colony by the banks of the river Chebar in Babylon • In a powerful vision, he was allowed to look upon Jerusalem as only God could see • Ezekiel was greatly moved by this

  26. The Captivity • EZEKIEL • Asked if God was going to destroy the entire remnant of Israel • Was told those set apart as serving God would not be harmed (9:5-9) • The same is true today (Rev 14:13; Jude13-14) • God would be loyal “IF”(1 Kings 9:3-9; James 5:15-16) • The time has come – His plan is on schedule • The promises of God are just as true concerning His punishment as His promises of blessing • (Heb 6:18; 2 Pet 3:9, 14)

  27. The Captivity • Another Promise to Abraham • All nations would be blessed through One who would come through Abraham’s seed (Gen 12:3) • Another prophet raised like Moses (Deut 18:15-22) • A King to reign forever on David’s throne (2 Sam 7:11-16) • God has not forgotten His promise • God could fulfill His plan for the redemption of mankind whether Israel was faithful or not (Esther 4:10-14) • If Israel had served God faithfully He would have blessed them greatly – God has not forgotten them, but they must be punished

  28. The Captivity • God’s Remembrance • Other nations were totally destroyed – never to rise again • God continued to remember the Israelites • Ezekiel’s vision included the promise that the faithful would one day return home • (Ezekiel 9:6; 11:13, 16-21; Amos 9:8-10) • The same is true today: "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”(Mat 7:21)

  29. The Captivity • Jeremiah’s Prophecy • Never again would there be a king of the royal line reigning in Jerusalem • God would raise up a Righteous Branch to David who would be a King to judge righteously (Jer 22:28-23:6) • Specified the length of time that the kingdom of Judah would be in captivity: “For thus says the LORD: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place.” (Jeremiah 29:10) 606BC - 536BC
