Remember the FAITH of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in the days of old during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar, the Third World King over the world Kingdom of Babylon (Daniel 2:49; 3:1-27).

The Seventh and Last World Kingdom is COMING, and untold numbers of people are frightened, fearful and frenzied about the coming last years of time when there will rise to power two wicked to rule from Jerusalem over the Last World Kingdom (Daniel 8:23–24; 11:36–37).

This period will lead up to the period of the Great Tribulation which many people fear and have found comfort in the false doctrine of the “rapture” believing that Jesus will come as a thief in the night to take them off the earth to escape this period.


However, for those who believe in this fable, fantasy and fiction, and are having difficulty coming to knowledge of the truth, need to go back in time to see the patience, courage and FAITHFULNESS  of three men – Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar over the Babylon world kingdom (Daniel 2:49).

King Nebuchadnezzar had made a very large golden image. On the dedication of this image a decree was established which commanded all people and languages throughout Babylon on the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musical instruments, to fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Everyone who did not fall down and worship the image would be at that same hour cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace (Daniel 3:3–6).

Many of the Chaldeans complained to the king that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego refused to worship the gods of the king and to bow down to worship the image which was set up (Daniel 3:12). The king then requested that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego be brought before him.

“Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, ‘Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?’” (Daniel 3:14).

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king’” (Daniel 3:16–17).

King Nebuchadnezzar was furious and he ordered that the furnace be heated seven times more than usual, “and these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace” (Daniel 3:23).

The king then inquired whether it was three men who were cast into the furnace and it was confirmed to be so. However, the king said, “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” (Daniel 3:25).

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, ‘Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most High God, come forth, and come hither.’ Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire” (Daniel 3:26).

When they came out of the furnace there was not any hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, or the smell of fire was on them (Daniel 3:27).

For those alive when the Antichrist and then Satan, the Seventh and Eighth World Kings rises to power in the Seventh and Last world kingdom, have NO FEAR.

BELIEVE our Lord JESUS when he says, ““Be thou [FAITHFUL] unto death…” (Revelation 2:10). “But there shall not a hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:16–19).

REMEMBER SHADRACH, MESHACH, AND ABED-NEGO did not perish when they were cast into the furnace of fire (Daniel 3:25)!

Our Lord Jesus also says: “[BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HEAR THE WORD] of God, and keep it” (Luke 11:28). “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: [THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU, THEY ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE]” (John 6:63).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that [HEARETH MY WORD], and [BELIEVETH] on him that sent me, hath [EVERLASTING LIFE], and shall not come into condemnation; but is [PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE]” (John 5:24).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).

“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s [GOOD PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM]” (Luke 12:32).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
