    Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast "Pur", that is the lot, to consume them and to destroy them; but when this became known to the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked plan, which he had plan...

As Scary As Hell

  • Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the form of his appearance was changed against ccc. He spoke, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. He commanded certain mighty men who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their pants, their tunics, and their mantles, and their other clothes, and were cast into the middle of the burning fiery furnace. Daniel 3:19'21 WEB.

    Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were bound and pushed to the edge of the roaring furnace. King Nebuchadnezzar had decreed that they were to be incinerated because they refused to bow to his new nine-story idol of gold when the music played.

    They refused to compromise and told King Nebuchadnezzar that their God was able to deliver them. Yet, even if He didn't, they wouldn't bow down to his new idol. It made the king furious, and he had the furnace heated seven times hotter.

    The heat coming up from the inferno was so intense that it killed the soldiers around them. Then the three Hebrews fell through the flames into the roaring fire below. This fate had befallen them simply because they refused to break the Lord's commandment:

    You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God... Exodus 20:4-5 WEB.

    I am sure it was scary as they looked down into that blazing furnace. It was certain death. Yet, they landed safely at the bottom, for they found they were not alone. There was a fourth Person in the furnace with them, the Lord Jesus Christ. When they came out of the fire, the ropes binding them had burned away, but they were unharmed. Their clothes didn't even smell like smoke. A nice touch.

    You are going to make it. Though it looks as scary as hell itself, you are going to make it. Don't waver in your faith, and don't compromise. When you get to the bottom, you will find that you are not alone, and only the things holding you back will be burned away.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that you are with me and that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I submit to Your will for my life, and I know You will bring me through this. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

This is one of my favorite devotionals, Its almost mind boggling how the three were cast in the furnace, they should have died instantly like the guards, But Jesus protected them for remaining faithful to Gods commandments. That is one of the most dramatic instances of Gods Love and Favor on His servants. Just Awesome :)

In Lord Yeshua's name I ask this, Amen. Thank You Father God Yahweh for speaking this message through Your servant Dion. It has encouraged me. You know I needed to hear this from You right now especially after feeling defeated and depressed yesterday. And because of what my wife Paula is facing with her employer about not receiving the poison fake covid vaccine .Praise You oh Lord my God!

Amen! This is an incredible message today!! To be thrown in a roaring fire would be so scary but instead of being burned up they were not even singed a  bit and did not even smell like fire. This was truly an incredible Miracle. Jesus was in the furnace with them, and He kept them safe the whole time, and they were not burned or hurt at all. This message is a great inspiration to me that we truly do not need to fear anything man can do to us because God is able to keep up safe through any and all circumstances. Praise the name of Jesus, the Holy Son of God and my Savior. Thank you, Pastor Dion for this incredible devotion today!!!
