Dan 3:26-30 So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. In this way, the “image” set up by Nebuchadnezzar is similar to the “image of the beast” that all men must worship under threat of punishment. Daniel 3 is an outstanding exhibit of Christian faith in action, where the belief in the Lord and obedience to His word cannot be compromised. The three Hebrews showed strong faith when they chose to trust God regardless of whether or not he would … This is one of just a handful of examples we have from the Bible of God’s people defying the command of a supreme authority. After all, this is the same fate that awaits those who fail to obey and follow Christ. We tend to give in and give up. This theme runs through both the books of Daniel and Revelation..

Faced with the king’s wrath and the threat of a quick, but gruesome, death, these Hebrews refuse to bow their knees to serve Nebuchadnezzar’s gods, including the “golden image” that the king has set up for all of his officials to worship. They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, 'O king, live forever! So how do you think the king would respond? However, the dedication of this gold image is not made in God’s honor, but in man’s honor. Instead, Nebuchadnezzar only calls those who serve at his pleasure to attend. This passage and event constitutes a change for the lives of all Jews exiled in Babylon. This conflict brings to memory Christ’s wisdom when He said: “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28), 7 “Therefore at that time, when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, flute, lyre, trigon, psaltery, bagpipe and all kinds of music, all the peoples, nations and men of every language fell down and worshiped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.”. So king Nebuchadnezzar makes an image of gold and it is no small undertaking. And notice why it was that they were able to come through this fiery trial (quite literally!) (Daniel 6:22). "THE BOOK OF DANIEL" Chapter Three Nebuchadnezzar builds a large image of gold, demanding all to worship it (1-7). After all, the king had never witnessed any other so-called god deliver his adherents in the way that the Hebrew God had been able to deliver his own people. – With the three Hebrews already in the blazing fiery furnace, there should be no further need for alarm or concern.

After all, fallen man’s heart is naturally rebellious towards authority. What an amazing testimony they gave  . And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9b-11). 5 that at the moment you hear the sound of the horn, flute, lyre, trigon, psaltery, bagpipe and all kinds of music, you are to fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up. Indeed, the dimensions of this image (60 cubits H x 6 cubits W) are remarkably similar to that of an obelisk, which was an extremely common pagan symbol used in ancient religious rites and ceremonies. This, of course, will further serve to highlight the miracle that is about to take place. Like Job, these Hebrews are willing to face physical death in the event that their God, in His infinite wisdom and knowledge, chose not to deliver their physical bodies from the fiery furnace. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. But as we will discover soon, that is about to change. I don't give you the money until we approach the ticket office.

Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.' Daniel Chapter 10 [1990s] STREAM. – This verse explains that all of those who were summoned by King Nebuchadnezzar indeed come and are gathered together (“assembled”) to faithfully appear at this dedication event.

After all, they serve as some of his top officials within the very heart of the Babylonian empire! Daniel and his three amigos Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were exalted to a position of privilege and power in Babylon. There is an interesting irony here as King Nebuchadnezzar (who in his madness will literally roam the earth as a beast himself as described in Daniel 4) threatens all who fail to worship his authority by paying homage to his “image” will face a fiery furnace. Daniel 4 Bible Study: Lessons from a Loon! Christians in persecuted countries have faced these questions since the time of Christ. You know that to do so will break the first two commandments in that you should not have any other 'gods' or idols. – All of the assembled leaders are standing before the gold image are instructed to listen for Nebuchadnezzar’s orchestra to play. When Corrie Ten Boom was afraid as a small girl that she would never have the courage to put her faith on the line for Jesus, her godly father simply said to her 'Corrie, when we take the train to Amsterdam, when do I give you the money for the ticket?

According to Matthew 13:49,50: “So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”, So too, the New Testament warns that those who worship the beast and his image will be cast into the fire, as described in the book of Revelation: “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. Like the Apostle Peter, when instructed by the Jewish authorities to stop publicly preaching the name of Jesus, we must obey God rather than men. So too, the number “seven” in scripture carries the figurative idea of “completion” or “perfection.” Of course, this sevenfold increase in the heat of the fiery furnace will actually make the miracle that God is about to perform even more incredible to the onlookers. So the king's thought is to unite religious belief in the worship of his image! Go To Daniel Index.

Because the Babylonian empire covered a vast territory, which included many lands of conquered peoples, it is understandable that this command is given to “peoples, nations, and men of every language.” In other words, the forthcoming royal command will apply to all who have gathered in the plain of Dura. – Obviously in shock, the king approached the entrance to the blazing furnace to get a better look in case his eyes were deceiving him. Clearly, something has gone awry with the king’s “hasty” plans as we will discover in the next verse. The king, without a hint of a smile on his face has just challenged them with 'if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Under almost all circumstances, God’s people are directed to “fear”, “submit to”, “pray for”, “obey” and “honor” the king. This time, instead of demanding an interpretation of his dream, he erects a golden “image” in the plain of Dura (just outside of his capital city of Babylon) and commands all officials within his government to bow in worship to this golden image or face an immediate fiery death. It could even have been in his own image. – Here, we see that the king’s foolish haste is the direct cause of death, not of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, but instead of his own elite warriors. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

But Nebuchadnezzar was not content to simply toss the three Hebrews into the fiery furnace. So these men were brought before the king, and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, 'Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? – The three Hebrews are brought in before the furious king. Rebellion to kings and other authorities is not a virtue, though sometimes it is required. So too, when the Apostles were instructed by the Jewish authorities to no longer teach in the name of Jesus, they had to “violate” that command because they must “must obey God rather than men.”, However, it should be noted that rebellion to the king in ALL other circumstances is prohibited by the scriptures as it is no different than rebellion to heaven’s divine agenda. His admittance that the God of the three Hebrews was the “Most High” or supreme God of gods reveals the work that God was doing in his heart through this incredible moment. Although, like in the days of Daniel, there will be some that it cannot touch (more on that later). 22 “For this reason, because the king’s command was urgent and the furnace had been made extremely hot, the flame of the fire slew those men who carried up Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego.”. Well, not well. (See Romans 13:1-7, especially 1,2), In more recent times, misguided Christians have attempted to use all manner of reasons for rebelling against the king. – Once all of the king’s men are in position before the gold image, the “herald” (the one who issues public proclamations) issued a loud command directly from the king. Dan 3:16-18 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter.

This divine act of grace and mercy is recalled in Hebrews 11:34 in reference to those faithful men who “quenched the raging fire.”, So too, the prophet Isaiah beautifully portrays God’s act of mercy when he reminds His readers of God’s promises: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you go through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand , O king. He heated the furnace up seven times hotter and decrees that our three friends will be thrown in alive. The false prophet shall setup an image that the entire earth has to worship. Instead, God’s people reserve their defiance to authority ONLY for when they are asked to directly disobey the specific commands of God. Peter told Jesus that even if all deserted Him, he never would. Many questions must have plagued those looking on, including: How are these men still alive?

Between the vision of Nebuchadnezzar in the second chapter and that of Daniel in the seventh, four narratives of Daniels and his friends' personal history are introduced. – As this story unfolds, it is clear that the writer, Daniel, is making a strong point about the harsh (and even rash) nature of the king’s command towards these three Hebrews. Nebuchadnezzar was awestruck by the power of deliverance displayed by the Hebrew God and sought to prevent anyone from provoking Him again, as he himself had among Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego. 8 “For this reason at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and brought charges against the Jews.”. The king’s subjects have their orders. What about if you are Jewish and to bow down and worship this image would break the first two of the Ten Commandments? Of course, the fact that their bodies are covered in flammable clothing, including undergarments, trousers, stockings and shoes, and even their hats also serves to intensify the miracle that is about to occur. – The king’s reasoning for his new decree is rooted in the obvious reality of the Hebrew God.

So too, here in this first verse of chapter three, we see the actions of King Nebuchadnezzar foreshadowing the actions that will be later taken by the beast described in Revelation 13, whose “image” must be worshipped with something of a loyalty oath.
