Discussion for Daniel 3

  • CHUKS
    God is ever ready to defend Himself in the lives of those who sincerely trust in Him. And He is the ever present helper in times of need
  • Jackie
    What did they when the three men when into the fire
  • Averu
    These three men didn't fear death or man as much as they feared their God. Shou ld we be afraid to be laughed at or being had in derision by the world instead of testifing for our Jesus?
  • Roen
    After the King had forgotten bowing down to Daniel and placing S., M. and Ab over the affairs of the province of Babylon for the interpretation of his earlier dream, he orders the trio into the fire for not worshipping the gold image he set up. Jesus is there with them and the King retrofitted again. But where and what about Daniel? What does he do the whole while, while sitting in the Gate of the King? Clearly why is he not involved when the temp goes up in the furnace? blessed be the sons of God, Amen
  • James H. Napier
