The “World” is full of Idol Worshipping….Men Worship their Jobs, Cars, Money, Houses, Themselves, Gold, Silver, Riches, Famous People, etc.
The story of Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego in Daniel 3 should be a reminder to us all today, that this type of worship is literally, playing with fire.
Daniel 3 is a reminder in the sense that those who Idol worship any other than God will be eventually tried by the fire.
1 Corinthians 3:13 the word states their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego were thrown into the blazing furnace because they would not worship King Nebuchadnezzar’s Image of Gold.
As we read this biblical story of truth from Daniel 3, we will see the Power of Faith and Hope activated within these 3 men, thus bringing about a miracle that only God the Father could rain down.
Daniel 3:19-25Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual 20 and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21 So these men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. 22 The king’s command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, 23 and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace.24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.”25 He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!”
To sum this up, If you worship any other than God you are playing with fire, and this “playing” can end your soul in eternal fire.
Also this story shows us that when pressure is applied in our lives, that we as strong believers should have that mustard seed Faith
And hope that God will come through for us….
He has not failed us yet! Walk by Faith, not by Sight and worship none but God the Father, The Son Jesus & The Holy Spirit.
