Nebuchadnezzar’s Siege

“In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. 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.”  Daniel 1:1-2

Jehoiakim means Yahweh raises up or the Lord Will Set Up.  And in the third year (3,000 years), when Jesus sets up his kingdom, the Antichrist will attack in a fierce battle.  Here, Nebuchadnezzar represents that antichrist.  Of course, the antichrist will not ultimately be successful, but the battle will be fierce.  Zechariah 14 gives more details.
