God is showing you his heart. In this case when God looks upon the earth, he sees nations as being in turmoil.
“Daniel, you have served your God continually, you are faithful to him, you have honored him with your life, and He will save you.”
You see compromises are for your benefit, not God’s. Compromises make us feel better, they don’t lift God.
Time is up, you didn’t take God seriously and now you will be replaced.
From his rooftop he sees a fortified city, a city filled with gold and silver.
If only he had repented things could have been different. It’s amazing to me how we force ourselves into a hard spot. We’d rather hit rock bottom before turning to God.
The tree once beautiful and glorious will be chopped down in a destructive way with the leaves scattering, animals and fruit scattering.
Their chains were broken, they were no longer in bondage, they are in the refiner’s furnace, being made pure by the hand of God.

We create idols because we really don’t know what to do with God in the first place. We don’t know how to “fit” him into our lifestyle. It’s sort of like receiving an awkward gift, you try to make it fit in, you try to figure out where to place it in your home, but no matter what you can’t make the thing work. It just doesn’t fit in, so you take it back and find a replacement, you replace the gift with something else that makes you happy.
