The Fire of Three Men

The Bible tells a great story about three Hebrew men walking in a fire. Scripture revealed, “I see four men loosed and walking about amid the fire without harm…. Our Bible, specifically Daniel 3:25 in the NIV translation, recounts the story of the Hebrew men thrown into the furnace by Nebuchadnezzar for their refusal to worship his idol. The three men were Shadrach (Hananiah), Meshach (Mishael), and Abednego (Azariah), who came out of the fire unscathed without the smell of smoke. The fourth man was the Most High God’s Son, Messiah Yeshua.

Nimrod subjected Abram (Abraham) to a scorching furnace for three agonizing days. The ropes binding Abram’s hands burned off. Nimrod was trying to kill Abram because he denied idols in the land and his convictions of the Omnipresent Adonai laws. El Shaddai gave Abram grace and mercy because he was a pious man who followed God’s statutes. After Abram’s encounter with Nimrod, Abram left Ur of Haran and went to the land of Canaan.

The fire represents purification and devotion to God. Everyone must be ready to be tested for Messiah Yeshua at any cost - even unto death if necessary. If you die for God, you might be “absent from the body but present with Yeshua” for all of eternity.

“Fire represents mesirut nefesh,” meaning ‘self-sacrifice’ in Hebrew. Should we not sacrifice our lives daily to Jesus? He is our Creator, who died for our sins because He loved us so much.
