Who's the 4th Man In The Fire?

When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would not bow down and worship the golden statue that Nebuchadnezzar made (which stood 90' high and 9' wide), they were cast into the flames. The blazing furnace was so hot that those who were ordered to toss them in were killed by the heat of the fire.

What happened next made Nebuchadnezzar stand up in awe and maybe even terror. For in the middle of the fiery flames stood a fourth man, shining brightly as the Son of God! The other three, as you remember, had been loosed from bound-up hands (probably burnt off by the flames) and were walking around in the fire, unharmed.

What conscious awareness these 3 men had, or what they talked with the Fourth man about, Scripture doesn't say. But, you can tell by the text that they were not afraid.

When you watch the Graham Cooke show below, you'll see the in your mind's eye the resemblance of what happened that day in the times of Daniel the Prophet.

Although a statue of Jesus, made of human hands, may be hit by lightening and destroyed, the real LORD, Son of God, Still walks thru the flames and rescues those in bondage. Those He redeems, come out alive, not even smelling like smoke! Now that's REAL POWER and GRACE.
