Fiery Trials

Fiery Trials

One fact for sure about firey trials they always come unexpectedly

Fourth Man in the Fire;

Three young men one day were thrown into an unexpected fire, which was heated beyond measure

One quick lesson for all of us unexpected fires must be dealt with immediately, a matter of fat these three young men didn’t even have a chance for any gear what so ever.

We find them in the middle of the flames and the one who heated the fire seven times over declares we put three young men in the fiery furnace but now I see four in the furnace, and the forth looks like the Son of God.

I would like to speak about the fourth man in the fire; as you study this portion of scripture you will discover yes the fourth man in the fire was the Son of God.

Here is the point when we are cast into unexpected fiery ordeals we too like the three Hebrew young men can believe Jesus to be there with us.

Proper Mental attitude is essential;

1Peter 4:12 12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. 14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.[d] On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.[e]

My Mental attitude should be;

This is not strange…

Rejoice

I am Blessed as a result

I am not alone in this fire Isaiah 43:1-3 {declares}

But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
