    Daniel Chp. 3rd chapter: Gives us a God that honors obedience. These three now adults grew up in Babylon.They demonstrated Faithfulness from the beginning of their residency to a foreign land and foreign gods. They knew serving the one True God has always caused God to move on their behalf. They feared the God that is above all gods. They were witnesses of being in right with God never fails.

    In Daniel 4-25.
    How could the King say," The fourth look like the Son of God." If the Son of God hasn't come yet.
  • Rev -Wood
    Some people are using Daniel chapter 3 as a cure all scripture. The whole lesson in Daniel Chapter 3 simply summed up is that if we would only trust and believe in God and truly understand that know good thing would he withhold from them that diligently seek Him. The problem is that few are seeking Him. I often say that we treat God like a spare tire!
