Daniel 3:25

New Living Translation
“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”

New American Standard Bible
He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”

God doesn’t need our help. We are the one who is in need. We are the ones who get harmed, attacked, hurt, bound, tied, and thrown. Who can do any of such things to God?

V.20 of the same Chapter of Daniel is as follows:

20Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace.

Picture this. You are tied. You are carried and thrown down to a blazing furnace – unusually hotter than ever!

What will happen to you now? 

  • broken bones from falling
  • burned hair and skin to the extreme
  • body turned to ashes

BUT, that is not the case with the three (3). They are unharmed! No burns! No nothing! The only thing that’s burned and turned to ashes are the ropes that’s tied to them. Nothing else. Not even their garments or what they are wearing from head to foot was burned. Who can do this kind of saving or rescue to anybody? Who can make the fire not burn anything? Who can make the bones not break from falling? God alone! Our Almighty God and Father!

More than what the Lord can do, you should have asked why the Lord spared the 3. Right?

Daniel 3 New Living Translation

15I will give you one more chance to bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments. But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. And then what god will be able to rescue you from my power?”

16Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you.17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

  • They have complete trust in God
  • They refuse to bow down to any idol other than God
  • They made a declaration
  • They are undefiled (Chapter 1)

How awesome is that? That’s more than just bravery or any courage known to men. That’s also more than just loyalty to God!

Daniel 3:28 New Living Translation
Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

Daniel 3:17 God gave these four young men an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom. And God gave Daniel the special ability to interpret the meanings of visions and dreams.

Trust in God. Trust also in Jesus.

Are You Ready To Accept Christ?

God loves you.

john316

You need to know this. Regardless of what you are now. Regardless of what you have done in the past, even the things you did before reading this. God loves you. To bring you back to Him, and take away your sin, He sent His only Son as ransom – a payment for our sins. The redeemer is Jesus.

The only begotten Son is Jesus, our Lord. He is our Savior. The only one who can erase or remove our sins, and the only way to God, our Father. Call on His name, you will be saved!

There was no other name given for our salvation. You can only be saved by believing and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior. Make the choice now. Decide! Who is Lord over your life? Who is your Savior? Who would you allow to rule and reign in your heart?

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

Prayer of Acceptance

Hated and Loved

Proverbs 11:20 The Lord hates evil-minded people, but loves those who do right. TEV

2 Things. What the Lord hates. What the Lord loves.

7-things-god-hates-1

Proverbs 6:16-17 English Standard Version
There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him:

  • haughty eyes – the arrogant, proud and conceited
  • a lying tongue
  • hands that shed innocent blood
  • a heart that devises wicked plans – schemers of evil
  • feet that make haste to run to evil – evildoers. Hostility
  • a false witness who breathes out lies
  • one who sows discord among brothers – one who makes disagreement rather than harmony. This is the root of quarrelling, jealousy, division and envy

These are detestable, abominable, hatable things to God. Anyone who does any of these things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

  • Galatians 5:19-21 New Living Translation
    When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

What’s worst is that doer’s of these evil will be thrown to the burning sulphur and fire.

  • Revelation 21:8 New Living Translation
    “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Do the right thing. Repent and turn-away from sin. Seek the Lord’s forgiveness and live your life in Christ. Then, you will know how it is to be in the Father’s love…a love given to all from the beginning of time – but completely ignored by many. However, you cannot ask forgiveness nor repent of your sin to a God you do not know, nor believed at. It’s important to know God first – thru our Lord Jesus Christ. The way to the Father. Our Savior. Our Lord Jesus introduced the Father to us by His works and by the very character He has.

Believe in Jesus then. Accept Him as the only Savior of your life – the one who can take away your sins. Repent, then live for Him. Make Him the King that He is in your life – to rule and reign your heart, mind and whole being.

All glory to God!

ONLY JESUS

Only The Lord Can.

everythingpossible

z-nothing-impossible-with-god

New Living Translation
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” – for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.

New Living Translation
For nothing is impossible with God.” – A barren woman conceived a son…

With me, or even with you, there’s so much impossibilities. The limited knowledge we know of what’s possible is far outweighed by the impossibility. But if we take it to God – it’s a totally different matter.

Luke 4:18-19 New Living Translation
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.”

Jesus did exactly what was written in the Scripture when He Himself read the scroll in the synagogue.

But not everything in this context is physical.

EPHESIANS 6:12 New Living Translation
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 New Living Translation
Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

There are things unseen by the naked eyes. Chains. Prison Cells. Walls. The Oppressor. With these things, ONLY Jesus, our Sovereign Lord can help us. 

ACTS 26:17-18 New Living Translation
And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

Prayer is not enough. You will need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding – something beyond your regular vision can see. You need to find a way to hear the healing, liberating news that you really are loved and forgiven by God, our loving Father. 

2 CORINTHIANS 2:11 New International Version
in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

We are not unaware. We know. But we need help. We need power beyond what we have in the physical. We need to fight the battle in Christ – for the Battle is the Lord’s!

Only Jesus. Only Jesus can help. Only Jesus can rescue. Only Jesus can free you!
