Summary: The fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed.
Daniel 3:24-27 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astounded, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors,
Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. 26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. 27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
This Is Good News
First, I want to prophesy: Something Good
Is Going To Come Out Of This.
I know that some of you are going through the greatest fire of your life, and it’s the kind that hurts, and the kind that makes you cry, And I know it’s going to sound crazy, but, what you ought to be doing is praising God, that you made it (to) the fire.
There are people that never made it (to)
the fire, there are other people that died
at the door. Say, “This Is Good News”
Do you understand what I’m saying?
The Kings 3 Most mighty men in his army (died at the door). It’s a miracle that you made it this far, by all rights you shouldn’t be here, you shouldn’t have lived through that car wreck. The officers on scene said it’s a miracle, no one should have come out of that alive. Even the Doctor said it’s a miracle.
Somebody else shouldn’t have lived through that drug overdose, you had enough drugs in your system to kill an elephant. You should have died, other people didn’t make, it but here you are. Somebody should be in prison,
but it’s a miracle, you are not in prison, if you tell the truth, you know that you’re just as guilty and more so than some people that are serving prison terms right now. (But God was merciful to you) There’s somebody listening to me right now, that should be in a mental institution, but you’re not, because God healed your mind. Other people have gone through a lot less than you and they
lost their minds, they went off the deep end.
What are you trying to tell me Pastor?
I’m trying to tell you that you ought to be praising God that you made it (to) the fire, there are others that died at the door.
(They died where your miracle started.)
These 3 mighty men, could represent the three greatest athletes, the most popular,
The 3 voted most likely to succeed, they had everything going for them, if anybody should have made it, it should have been them.
But they died at the door.
On the other hand:
Nobody expected you to make it: but here you are alive, in your right mind, serving God, filled with the Holy Ghost and power.
And you want to complain because you’re going through the fire, what you ought to be doing is praising God that you made it (to) the fire. Somebody shout, This Is Good News
Somebody shout, Thank God I made it (to) the fire. I could have died at the door, I could have died in that car wreck, I could have died of a drug overdose, I could be serving life in prison, I could have lost my mind. But God had his hand on me. I didn’t even know him and he was watching over me, I wasn’t serving him but he was keeping his hand
on me. He sent his angels to deliver me.
I wasn’t the strongest, or the smartest.
I wasn’t the most popular one, I wasn’t the one expected to make it, but I made it,
and there’s no other explanation but God.
Somebody shout it out again: Thank God
I made it to the fire. This is Good News.
Now you’re going to get you out of the fire, but God just wanted to remind somebody, that he was with you before you ever got in the fire, and he is not going to leave you now.
As a matter of fact if you are in the middle of the fiery furnace today, it’s proof, that you are coming out. Because the miracle started at the door, and if God wasn’t going to bring you out, you would have died at the door.
