2. Dear Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego(Letters from God Volume II)
Dear Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego,
Such faithful and loyal men are few. You are an example to others who will come after you. Even when you were faced with death you still would not bow down and worship any other god. In the pit of fire you walked without getting burned, and not even the hem of your clothing or your hair was burned.
Living captive in Babylon you never left your one true God. You were courageous in the midst of your enemies. You boldly declared your faith in Me. I am so proud of how you stood and did not cower, even though your lives were being threatened. You were given an opportunity to have your lives spared all you had to do was bow down to their idol. Yet you did not do this instead you spoke out and said “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.” So they threw you into the furnace.
You were not alone in the fire were you? You knew I would not forsake you. What strong faith and you even accepted dying before you would deny Me and defile yourself with idolatry. Your story will be one to encourage others as they face the fiery trials in their own lives. You have pleased Me, and I am glad to call you Mine. Well done my faithful servants.
