This episode goes deeper into the story of the four Hebrew men and the statue they refused to bow before.


Welcome the truth matters with Dr. Harold.

She discusses this.

You made in the image of those are elected for the people and worship including recognition is awe-inspiring for young held in captivity in a pagan nation deeply devoted to serving the Lord facing death and unwilling to worship in earthly life is a model of behavior and devotion not only for Israel but for the time shortage jeers Dr. Davis prayer man of integrity. We are continuing. The book of Daniel heavy had been doing broadcast and looking into the book of Daniel and his revelation for the end times.

I think they are still very relevant to the events that are going on today we begin in chapters 3 and as some of you may know chapter 3 is where Nebuchadnezzar builds the image of gold swimming to get into the image of gold and really look back at where and Nebuchadnezzar has come from in chapter 2.

Please get back to chapter 2, verse 47. This is really where Nebuchadnezzar's mindset is the king answered Daniel and said, truly, your God is the God of God, the Lord of kings in a revealer of secrets. Since she could reveal the secret sin this case, Nebuchadnezzar was a focal witness of his faith in the Lord. In chapter 2, by the time we get to chapter 3. He has built himself an idol. According to the Septuagint, which is the oldest Greek version of the Old Testament.

There were 16 to 20 years between the end of chapter 2 and the beginning of chapter 3, I would say in 16 to 20 years is plenty enough time to backslide. So let's get into chapter 3 and read verses one through six. Nebuchadnezzar, the king made an image of gold.

His weight was 60 cubits and its width was six cubits, he set it up in the plane of Dora in the Providence of Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar sent word to gather together the satraps the administrators the governors the counselors the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and now the officials of the providences to come to the dedication of the image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up so the satraps the administrators the governors the counselors the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates and all the officials of the providences gather together for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

Then Harold cried aloud to use it is commanded peoples, nations and languages that the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, Lear and pulse at three in Symphony with all kinds of music you shall fall down and worship the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. This is very interesting. As I said previously in chapter 2, verse 47 he really gets an image of God and an understanding of God and is a vocal witness of his faith in the Lord but by the time we get to hear about 16 to 20 years later he's building an image of himself. However, this is really an awkward type structure by which is about 90 feet wide 9 feet wide.

As you know the number of the answer that is revealed to Revelation 13 relation chapter 1318, number of mankind is not only a zonal worship, symbolic of a coming will likewise build an idol. People everywhere to worship him as is approaching as we see signs mentioned by Jesus in 24 coming into reality. Certainly getting closer and forward in time to get our lives right with God's will continue her teaching through the book broadcast leading this coming week seven visions of Jesus in the book of Revelation with Dr. Harold referenced the handwriting on the wall by Dr. David Jeremiah. I'm just going to read this.

This gives us a great example of Nazi Germany in the late 1930s. It was written. One cannot be a good German and at the same time deny God, but in the foulest faith in the eternal Germany as an eval of faith in the eternal God. Whoever serves Adolf Hitler serves Germany and whoever serves Germany serve God. Later on in 1942. This was written. There's a lot of talk in Germany about Hitler's messianic characteristics.

The thesis that Hitler is a miraculous being sent by a supreme power and that he is capable of mystic communion with the German masses is gaining greater currency.

Consequently, the attack on Christian religion becomes more severe in Germany.

No attempt is made to stamp out faith in the supernatural. The policy is more blasphemous is to replace Christ religion is now counterfeited rather than dismissed this extraordinary tendency is perhaps without parallel during the last 2000 years. The Nazis are trying to create an anti-type of Christianity. They have made their leader, their God. We know that is historically true as we can verify that in history, Nebuchadnezzar was trying to unify the people around his image. When the mass of humanity was gathered on the plane of duress shedding their eyes from the reflection of the beating Deseret News on the golden image.

The king gave orders to his professional preacher Harold with a loud voice is all false gods have their own puppeteers.

The king had this man who told the crowd what he was paid to say, he announced that when the orchestra played everyone had hit the ground, worship or burn were the only options auto crimes involving religion and politics as a means of unifying and gaining power over the lives of people learn another tolerance throughout history abuse their power to oppress the people of God, thinking of themselves as some kind of the doctor continues her thoughts on Shadrach me shack up and go Jesus in the fire.

This is an example of Nebuchadnezzar establishing legend, although it pales in comparison to God. It is a false religion that he is establishing his own religion within Babylon in order to unify the nation in which he would have more submission and control over them. This is the epitome of an egotistical ruler similar to Hitler.

Let's move on to verses eight through 15. Therefore, at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and accuse the gees they spoke and said to King Nebuchadnezzar king live forever you a king had made a decree. Everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, heart Lear and Casa Terry and Symphony with all kinds of music shall fall down and worship the golden image, and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast in the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

There are certain Jews him you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach me shack and Abednego these man a king not pay due regard to the they do not serve your gods to worship the golden image in which you have set up Nebuchadnezzar in rage and fury gave the command to bring Shadrach me shack and Abednego said they brought these men before the king Nebuchadnezzar spoke asking them. Is it true Shadrach me shack, Abednego, that you do not serve my God to worship the golden image which I have set up now. If you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, heart Lear and pause the tree and Symphony with all kinds of music and you fall down and worship the image which I have made good, but if you do not worship you shall be cast immediately into the mists of the burning fiery furnace, and who is the God who will deliver you from my hand was a master of politics and religion among the people of Germany during the 30s and 40s was a type of foreshadowing the one who will do all in his power to eradicate relation sayings and the Jews establishing himself as the one true God, but his mission will fail because Jesus will return in all his glory, the nation's most recent 4000 will trouble is everlasting on the horizon joined Dr. Davis and truth matters for our next broadcast in our journey through the book of happening in the nation like America is launching one attack from political strife and economic shutdown causing massive limited eruptions of the supply chain along the foundation of the nation people are asking what the future hold joined Dr. Cheryl Davis truth matters on Christian 105 and discover God's plan for the future. Welcome to truth matters with Dr. Cheryl. When Daniel purposed in his heart.

In verse eight not defile himself with Kings delicacies and he was able to see that God had provision ever. Daniel and Shadrach me shack and Abednego in chapter 1 and chapter 2 is that because her second experience with God as the dream that Nebuchadnezzar had that Daniel could only interpret and that his magicians could not and Nebuchadnezzar makes the shallow commitment in chapter 2, to God in the third chapter is his third experience with God, seeing the fourth like the son of God in the fiery furnace and witnessing Christophe any but again that was a shallow commitment and we know that by virtue of the definition because he needed 1/4 warning that this is his fourth experience with God. But his final warning before judgment that will get into what this dream means. As Daniel interprets it in 19 to 27. Telus read verses 19 through 27 then Daniel. His name was built this as are was astonished for time and his thoughts troubled him. So the king spoke and said that the shows are.

Do not let the train or its interpretation trouble. You felt the shows are answered and said, my Lord, by the drain concern. Those who hate you misinterpretation concern your enemies, and here we see where Daniel is compassionate on behalf of Nebuchadnezzar because when he hears the drain from Nebuchadnezzar, his thoughts troubled him believe that Daniel respected Nebuchadnezzar boss that he cared for him believe he had a compassion for his lost heart and try to help him numerous times, but by seeing this fourth dream and knowing its interpretation in trouble. Daniel the King Nebuchadnezzar told him.

Do not let it trouble you just go and give it to me straight said this is what he does in verse 20 through 27. The tree that he saw which grew and became strong. His height reach to the heavens, which could be seen by all the earth.

His leaves were lovely and its fruit abundant in which was food for all, under which the beast of the field, dwelt in and whose branches the birds of the heaven had their home is you a king who have grown and become strong for your greatness has grown and reaches to the heavens and your dominion to the end of the earth, and inasmuch as the King Saul. A watch or a holy one, coming down from heaven saying chopped down the tree and destroy it but leave it stump and rates in the earth bound with a band of iron and bronze in the tender grass of the field, let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let him graze with the beast of the field till seven times pass over him. This is the interpretation of King and this is the decree of the most high, which has come upon my lord the king, they shall drive you from man dwelling shall be with the beast of the field and they shall make you eat grass like oxen, they shall what you with the dew of heaven, and seven-time shall pass over you. Till you know that the most high rules in the kingdom of man and gives it to whomever he chooses.

And inasmuch as they gave the command to leave the stump and rates of the tree.

Your kingdom shall be assured to you after you come to know the heaven rules there for a king, let my advice be acceptable to you, breakoff your sins by being righteous in your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity. Said interestingly, this is a warning as you say Nebuchadnezzar is that great fast trees. He was then known as the modern ruler of the known world at that time he has dominion over all of the earth at that time. Still, his heart was not in the place that it needed to be and God needed him to know him and needed to get his heart where he wanted it and where he wanted his heart was this he wanted him to know that in order that the living may know that the most high rules in the kingdom of man, that he wanted Nebuchadnezzar to realize that God's role was higher than his, and that God is sovereign over their will and over it the lowest of me and not that he has to have a certain status to be a ruler or to be a keen that it could be even the lowest of man. The downfall of many leaders in history like never to measure in their narcissistic personality being self absorbed in their own sense of right but they failed. Ultimately, of their life purpose because they failed to heed the advice and guidance of others and especially the Holy Spirit, God is speaking you are not sure what is.
