And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Daniel 3:-6
King Nebuchadnezzar created a golden statue and he demanded everyone to bow down and worship this statue daily. Anyone who refused to worship would be burned alive in a Fiery Furnace.
There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Daniel 3:12
The three Jewish wise men(Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) refused to bow down to the statue because they worshipped the only true God our Heavenly Father. Who has commanded us to not worship any other God or false idols.
But if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Daniel 3:15
The King challenged God then and said if he is truly God then he will deliver you from the Fiery Furnace. Not only were these men bound with rope, King Nebuchadnezzar ordered the furnace made seven times hotter than usual, so hot it burned his own men alive who delivered the Jewish wise men to the Fiery Furnace
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. Daniel 3:17
But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted in God, they will knew God would deliver them from the Fiery Furnace. How many of us have strong enough faith willing to put our lives in Gods hands?
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Daniel 3:25
This event is pretty amazing on many different levels, not only because the 3 wise men were not hurt at all, its says not even one strand of hair on there heads was burnt. But we see the appearance of the Son of God, who we know is only Jesus Christ.
This is not the only appearance of Jesus in the Old Testament, just shows you Jesus is the same today, yesterday, and forever.
Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Daniel 3:28
The Pagan King, confirmed with his own eyes that our Heavenly Father is the only true God and Jesus delivered them from the Fiery Furnace. How strong is your faith today? God is with you even in the Fiery Furnace in Jesus name Amen
