ராஜா தானியேலை நோக்கி நீ இந்த மறைபொருளை வெளிப்படுத்தினபடியினால் மெய்யாய் உங்கள் தேவனே தேவர்களுக்குத் தேவனும் ராஜாக்களுக்கு ஆண்டவரும் மறைபொருள்களை வெளிப்படுத்துகிறவருமாயிருக்கிறார் என்றான் [தானியேல் 2 : 47]
Daniel 2 -(v47) The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings”.
-God revealed the vision to Daniel and made the king to proclaim your God is the God of gods. God can do anything anywhere. The king made Daniel ruler over the entire province of Babylon!
9 தேவன் தானியேலுக்குப் பிரதானிகளின் தலைவனிடத்தில் தயவும் இரக்கமும் கிடைக்கும்படி செய்தார். தானியேல் 1 :9
Daniel 1:8,9. God favored the situation possible for Daniel’s decision on purity.
Daniel 3: The three men had unshakable faith: God whom we serve will deliver us, but if he doesn’t, it wouldn’t make a much of difference (vv. 17-18).
1. King N does not insist that Daniel should worship Yahweh. In fact, all he says that Daniel must “add”/or “also” worship the idol. The modern “idol” sounds exactly like that. Sure pray to Jesus in your room/apartment but when in the public you must understand there are many gods and be tolerant.. They never say don’t pray. They say to treat their values “as equal”to our values. All they ask is to treat “Their gods as equal to our God”. Modern idolatry. Sorry, Daniel knees does not bend to other gods in the name of being nice. Today Daniel might has looked as a stiff necked, disrespectful, arrogant youngster. But he is a modern missionary.
2. Furnace. Sometimes our God does not prevent us from our furnaces but joins us in our furnace. He walks through the furnace with us. That is the difference between this God and other so called gods. Even King N says so in v 29. ” no other God rescues this way”. It is the difference in how our God responds to suffering not with all the answers but with his Presence. Sometimes quite and invisible but never never quitting on us
Daniel 3 -(v17) The God we serve is able to deliver us from it (the fire), and he will deliver us.
-Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego are in foreign land, standing before the king of that nation, they don’t seem to be afraid, their “faith” on the LORD didn’t change, they boldly refused to serve and worship the image of gold.
