Standing For The Truth
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. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. (Daniel 3:17-18)
This is one of the strongest examples of steadfast faith in the Bible. Notice how carefully the three Hebrew children answered Nebuchadnezzar and also notice how they were, able to be delivered themselves from his hand. The same way the Hebrew children were delivered God can and will deliver those who have the faith to believe.
I truly believe that it is coming to the time that all Christians need this kind of faith. The Hebrew children were accused of not bowing down to and worshiping the image, but the real reason was the Chaldeans hated the Hebrew Children. That is the real reason for this accusation. Just as the Hebrew children were hated then, we as Christians are hated now.
The same thing is coming upon Christians or even worse could happen to them in today’s world. We are being hated more everyday even by our own government. In some circles we are called terrorist and worse for standing up for what we believe in. The enemy has already reached our shores. He is in the White House, The government, our communities, and even our churches. It is no time to be a luke warm Christian. It is time to stand up and put on the whole armor of God.
Listen fellow Christian right now, in America we may not have to face the decision to die for our faith, but it is coming and soon. Every day each and every one of us must face the decision to live for it. We must have that determination and resolve to go all the way with Jesus. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light. There is no other way.
We have so much deception in the world and even in the churches. Look what is being passed out to us as being good. There is the one world government, Chrislam (the deadly heresy of Chrislam which denies Jesus as the only way. The people in these churches are deceived and think they are doing a good thing. We have homosexual being married and ordained in our churches, when the Bible speaks against the sin That is just some of the things that are happening and deceiving many Christians. We as Christians must take our stand for the Gospel. Stand up for Jesus! We have our marching orders in the Holy Scriptures. Know and understand what the Bible says.
We must be like the three Hebrew children. They would not bow; they would not budge; and guess what: THEY DID NOT BURN!
