11/23 Reading - Thoughts & Comments DX3

Post by Admin on Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:06 am

23-Nov Daniel 3-4, Acts 23-24, Psalms 131-135, Proverbs 23

You Must Choose Who You Will Serve - Or The Choice Will Be Made For You!

Dan 3:16-18 (NIV) 16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up."

The king got one of those hair brained, idiotic, man made ideas that he would set up a golden image and force everyone to worship it along with him.  These fearful, complacent, foolish people who followed him were easily led, easily forced, and easily made compliant.  Just threaten them and they'll comply.  This is what happens today as the circle of life continues forward and history repeats itself.  Our leaders form ideas, laws, and lifestyles that they think are really awesome. They want you to worship these images just as they do.  For instance, the homosexual lifestyle is worshipped as a god by many self serving leaders, and if you don't worship along with them - you are guilty of hate crimes, you are defective, and need to be imprisoned, sued or punished.  The masses will follow in fear, and they will bow down to the golden images of Babylon.  But you and I MUST choose "THIS DAY" whom we will serve, because tomorrow you will be challenged on that commitment.  A person can't make a split decision at the opportune moment that they will serve God, when the time is right.  No - the decision must be made today so you will have the strength and fortitude to stand with that decision tomorrow.

Josh 24:15 (NIV) 15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."

When your leaders come to you with demands of freedoms lost, Bible confiscation, seizure of personal property, worshipping at the new altar of "green living", "homosexual living", "Agenda 21 living", "worship your government living", "food stamp living", "three parent DNA created baby living", GMO cyber life living", "one world system living", and a host of other lifestyle and fundamental core life changes, you and I must have already made the decision, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord - PERIOD, END OF CONVERSATION, NO NEED TO ARGUE WITH THE SERPENT ANY FARTHER!".  I guarantee you, they are coming, and they will use fear to drop the world's population to their knees in worship of the newest, coolest, golden idols and ideas.

The three Hebrew children were confident.  They knew that they were going to tick off the king.  But they told it the way it was.  First of all, they simply ignored the decree to worship the false idols.  When they were arrested and confronted, they heard the threat of the king and then responded.  They let him know under no uncertain terms that they would not be submitting to this illicit new command.  Their God was well able to deliver them from the kings hand, but even if he chose not to, these men were not willing to bow in fear of any man's hand.  They were firmly committed to God, to His kingdom, and to His lifestyle - PERIOD!  The story continues and the king is furious. He heats up a furnace so hot that it kills the guards who are going to throw the Hebrews in. They are bound, tied and thrown into the fire where they meet a 4th man.  That man looks like the son of God (and is the son of God!).  Their bonds burn away and they are FREE to move about in the fire without any burning of their clothing or hair. Only the bonds burned off.  The king finally asks them to come out of the fire to have a talk.  Interesting that he denies their invitation to come into the fire!  Life in Babylon changes that day and the king has a great change of heart.  Glory, honor and respect is paid to the 4th man in the fire, and Jehovah God.  The Hebrew children don't have any further demands placed upon them that they would clearly deny.  They maintained their authority, and God's kingdom was established in the hearts of men, leaders, and the king himself.

Whether God saves you or not, are you willing to make a stand for Him?  Today is the day you must decide.  You will not be able to stand for Christ unless you pre-determine, pre-plan, and pre-set your course for the kingdom of God today.  But if you will do it today - you set yourself up to meet the 4th man in the fire!  You are FREE and cannot be bound by any ideologue, any idiotic manmade creation, or any fundamentally flawed lifestyle change.

Lastly, we are living in the fire every day because we read God's Word daily.  So we can meet the 4th man in the fire every day.  Being cast into a fiery furnace by the king of Babylon is nothing compared to the fire that we submit to in God's Word!  And since we know that OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, we are not afraid of fire.  We are familiar and confident in the purging and cleansing of fire. And we know HE who lives in the fire.  Therefore, we invite all, even the king, to come join us in the fire!  Laughing  cheers  sunny
