“He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”” Daniel 3:25 (NASB)
IT was none other than the Son of God. That Great Shepherd of the sheep saw three of His faithful servants in peril, and He came from His Father’s presence. He had with His Father’s to be with them in it. He had been watching that terrible attempt to burn the faithful. His tender pitying eye saw that they were condemned to death because of their loyalty to Him. With one great leap He sprang from the Father’s presence, from His palace in glory, right down into the fiery furnace, and was by their side before the heat of the fire could come near unto them. Jesus was with His servants as the flames wrapped around them. He would not allow a single hair of their heads was singed. They were not scorched; not even the smell of fire was upon them. We can almost fancy I hear them chanting the promise God had given through Isaiah: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you. (Isaiah 43:2 NASB)
