Based upon the Scripture:
“….we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up." Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 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." 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." Daniel 3:18…25
3 children of Israel were in captivity in Babylon. They refused to bow the knee to worship the king. In his anger, he sought their annihilation, and so he threw them into the fiery furnace. Our world, too, seeks the destruction of the children of light. We see persecution against the Church happening every day. This story reminds us that there is a fourth person in our furnace, the savior. We are not alone in the battle.
