Discussion for Daniel 3

  • Zakhar
    It appears Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and all the mighty men were rendered invulnerable to the immense heat causing the mighty men to march right into the heat without realizing how abnormally close they were to it and as they threw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego the mighty men were judged right as they released their grip on them and were no longer invulnerable to the heat and were consumed.

    BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. PSALM 46:10. When was the last time you sat with your God and listened? Thank you Father for your strength. Help me see what l can do through you today. The strength of Christ reaches right down into our turmoil and pain. It's there, that we can truly do "ALL THINGS." God always equips us with the armor we need, to stand firm. God will PROTECT ME ALWAYS!

    JP: I think it was the mighty men in verse 20 who were binding Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that died. Somehow the flames got too close to them while trying to toss the three into it in haste and they died.
  • JP
    Who died? those men who believed in Nebuchadnezzer vs. 22.
  • Obbie Beal
    the question was bow down and worship the idol or die trussing Jehovah / GOD !
