WHAT IS THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST? Holy Prophetic Revelations

THE BATTLE BETWEEN YAH (GOD) AND Satan HAS ALWAYS BEEN & IS STILL IS ABOUT THE ISSUE OF THE IMAGE OF YAH!

Satan desired to be greater than YAH’S IMAGE or at least be like YAH’S IMAGE after he saw the formation of YAH’S IMAGE. He is jealous of YAH’S IMAGE hence he is after the eternal fall of YAH’S IMAGE.

So, mankind (YAH’S IMAGE) is very precious and should regard themselves highly by GLORYING IN YAH!

Shalom, The Prophetic Words are written below but first, an introduction:

(Put together and shared on Tuesday 6th April 2021)

The following Holy Biblical Scriptures are useful to read as they are the ones being referred to on this page.

Genesis 1:27 New King James Version

27 So ELOHIM (GOD) created man (A)in HIS own image; in the IMAGE OF YAH (GOD) HE created him; (B)male and female HE created them.

Luke 10:18-20 New King James Version

18 And HE (YAHUSHUA) said to them, (A)“I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven. 19 Behold, (B)I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but [a]rather rejoice because (C)your names are written in Heaven.”

Note that Satan became became a fallen angel because he refused to WORSHIP THE IMAGE of YAH (GOD). This is evidenced in The First Book of Adam and Eve as well as The Gospel of Bartholomew and various other places in The BIBLE. He was the first and the most powerful angel to be created. He had certain qualities that other Holy Angels were not originally given. The next one in command (Arch Angel Michael) may have been given some of his qualities when he fell.

Satan’s punishment for his actions is severe because he also caused a third of (now formerly Holy) Angels – those assigned to him – to become fallen, that is to say, first 600 fell and later 66 more fell hence 666 is the number of the beast (Anti-Messiah a.k.a Anti-Christ). In fact, the Anti-Messiah (begotten SON of satan; son of perdition) is one of the fallen angels. It is all about mankind, THE IMAGE OF YAH! They fell because they refused to follow their master in terms of bowing down worship YAH’S IMAGE.

This is why the punishment for mankind not worshipping Satan’s image (satanic/counterfeit) will be severe. For him, it is all about revenge.

Revelation 13:8 New King James Version

All who dwell on the earth will worship him, (A)whose names have not been written in the BOOK OF LIFE of THE LAMB slain (B)from the foundation of the world.

Romans 9:21-23 New King James Version

21 Does not the (A)potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make (B)one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?

22 What if YAH, wanting to show HIS  WRATH and to make HIS POWER known, endured with much longsuffering (C)the vessels of wrath (D)prepared for destruction, 23 and that HE might make known (E)the riches of HIS GLORY on the vessels of mercy, which HE had (F)prepared beforehand for GLORY,

Romans 8:30 New King James Version

30 Moreover whom HE PREDESTINED, these HE also (A)called; whom HE called, these HE also (B)justified; and whom HE JUSTIFIED, these HE also (C)GLORIFIED.

Furthermore, Satan caused some humans to fall – those who were in the Heavens and hadn’t yet come to earth in flesh form (evidenced in YAH’S Amightywind Ministry Prophecy 71) and soon after he caused Adam and Eve to become fallen on earth 🌎 thereby losing SHEKINYAH GLORY a.k.a RUACH HA KODESH HOLY SPIRIT). Since Adam and Eve fell, all humans have become fallen and can only be redeemed by YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD (John 3:16; Isaiah 1:18; etc). And it is only through YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD that SHEKINYAH GLORY is fully restored to mankind, HalleluYAH!

Due to the fact that Satan had lost SHEKINYAH GLORY, he desires the same to happen to YAH’S IMAGE which is mankind!

The website page with the HOLY PROPHETIC WORDS which confirm that some humans chose Satan’s side during the Great Battle between GOOD and evil and between LIGHT and darkness in the beginning of time is currently down hence I am posting the video for now. However it can be read in the Amightywind Ministry App (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amightywind.english) if you please.

Video: Amightywind Ministry Prophecy 71: HEAVEN’S SECRETS SEALED ARE NOW REVEALED (41 mins)

Mankind is only empowered as YAH’S IMAGE when mankind aligns themselves well with YAH, that is to say seeking YAH’S WILL and obeying it lovingly and diligently always (without reseevations). Abraham and others in the Bible are good examples of this. One way to align oneself is to be on YAH’S Calendar. Also see Romans 12:1-2.

Romans 12:1-2New King James Version

Living Sacrifices to YAH

12 I (A)beseech[a] you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YAH, that you present your bodies (B)a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to YAH (GOD), which is your [b]reasonable service. And (C)do not be conformed to this world, but (D)be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may (E)prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of YAH.

Matthew 6:10 New King James Version

10 YOUR KINGDOM come.
(A)YOUR WILL be done
On earth (B)as IT IS  IN HEAVEN.

Eve got understanding of this when her son, Seth was once attacked by a wild animal a.k.a beast (Second Book of Adam and Eve).

When Eve challenged the animal saying that how dare it have the guts to attack THE IMAGE OF YAH, the beast answered saying the doesn’t she know that she lost YAH’S GLORY when she fell out of alignment with YAH back in The Garden of Eden when she took the forbidden fruit and ate it (thereby disobeying YAH ALMIGHTY)? She was gobsmacked.

Revelation 13:15-18 New King James Version

11 Then I saw another beast (A)coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, (B)whose deadly wound was healed. 13 (C)He performs great signs, (D)so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.14 (A)And he deceives [a]those who dwell on the earth (B)by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword (C)and lived.  15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak (A)and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, (B)to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [a]the mark or (C)the name of the beast, (D)or the number of his name.

18 (E)Here is wisdom. Let him who has (F)understanding calculate (G)the number of the beast, (H)for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Daniel 3:1, 4-6 New King James Version

The Image of Gold

3 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was [a]sixty cubits and its width six cubits. He set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Then a herald cried [a]aloud: “To you it is commanded, (A)O peoples, nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall (B)be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”

Light is thrown in this subject in THE GOSPEL OF BARTHOLOMEW as well as various other places in The BIBLE as shared above.

Here is a link for those who wish to listen to THIS PRECIOUS LOST GOSPEL:

Sadly, this GOSPEL didn’t make it to our Holy Biblical Scriptures that we read today. There is a reason why which is best understood if one takes the time to listen to or read THE GOSPEL. It bears many useful secrets.

Mankind is THE IMAGE of YAH (GOD) ALMIGHTY!

Satan counterfeits everything that YAH ALMIGHTY creates.

Therefore Satan’s image a.k.a the image of the beast has to be something that looks like humans and can get close to humans to fool and deceive them. There will be demons/fallen angels inside of Satan’s image.

So, the idea that Satan came up with is artificial intelligence. Mankind is natural intelligence. So, Satan has created counterfeit intelligence, that is to say, a copy of mankind which is robots. They will come in all shapes, forms and sizes including car, etc. They will be released to befriend humanity worldwide 🌐 and even reside in their homes for those who want them. Then, one day, all hell will break lose. The person assigned to bring this to fruition is also a demon/fallen angel and a High ranking one in the kingdom of darkness as revealed by YAH ALMIGHTY.  Watch movies such as, “I Robot” to learn more about what it will be like on earth 🌎 in the future. Also, fhe movie, “Bumblebee” is helpful to watch. “Transformers” also.

Video: I, Robot 2004 Trailer

Video: Bumblebee (2018): New Official Trailer – Paramount Pictures

Satan is a liar and the father of lies. Satan’s image will be both male and female.

Video: Tonight Shobotics: Jimmy meets Sophia the human-like robot (video uploaded 3 years ago)

In order to overcome Satan and his image, you need to have YAHUVEH’S (YAHWEH) SHEKINYAH GLORY. See Isaiah 60:1-2; Joel 2:28-30/Acts 2:1-4; Isaiah 61/Luke 4:18; etc.

The Children of Israel constantly encountered Satan’s image in various ways. It usually appeared as other humans who don’t love and Worship THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD and desired to see their end. Whenever the Children of Israel were well aligned with YAH ALMIGHTY, they were victorious over their enemies. HalleluYAH for the Pillar of Cloud by day and Pillar of FIRE by night which were YAH’S SHEKINYAH GLORY!👏👏👏

Brethren, what is coming to this earth 🌎 in the Great Tribulation (since 2020) is no joke!

You can only survive it if you have and are in a STRONG, LOVING, OBEDIENT & FAITHFUL RELATIONSHIP with THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE MAKER, YAH (GOD).

If you haven’t already, please Accept YAH’S SALVATION (YAHUSHUA) if you haven’t already as per John 3:14-18.

And for those who have already accepted YAH’S SALVATION, please endeavour to daily and diligently work out your SALVATION with Fear and Trembling. Fast and pray and study YAH’S WORD constantly! Immerse yourself in HIM.

Now, THE TWO PROPHETIC WORDS received by Two YAH’S Children/Servants on this matter:

Note that also those who willingly receive the jab (c19) of all jabs are transformed into Satan’s image. They become Satan’s bride or guest depending… They (mini images of the beast) will be forced to bow and worship the image of the beast in the near future.

FIRST ONE (PROPHECY):

SHARED AS RECEIVED FROM PASTOR MIKE FELIX (Prepared Saints of GOD) & PENIEL NGONDE

AFTER RAPTURE/666 MYSTERY EXPLAINED
In a night vision I received before the dawn of 30th of November 2019, The Spirit of the Lord revealed to me an aspect or a tiny part of the thing that shall shortly befall the earth after the rapture of which I shall share with you shortly but before I share the vision with you I would like to tell you how it all started.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENT APPS
On Thursday, 28th of November 2019, I came across a very useful app on my phone called “Cortana” and “Google Assistant” This two wonderful apps from Microsoft and Google uses Artificial Intelligent known as AI and I only needed to speak to my phone when using that app and it would reply me in audible voice using Artificial Intelligent, of a truth, I support such apps for easy research on things and the apps are good.

TECHNOLOGY IMPROVED LIFE.
Nevertheless, as I was going home on friday 29th of November, I began to consider how technology has drastically improved life which is true and the wonderful things we now enjoy from technology, then the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said, “My son, I shall reveal something to you tonight”. When I got home, I never knew what it was that the Spirit of the Lord wanted to reveal to me, so after having my night bath, I played Audio Hymns on my phone, and prayed and I also said, “Oh Lord reveal something to me”. So after praying, I listened to the Audio hymns and afterwards I closed my eyes.

AFTER RAPTURE ON EARTH
Immediately I closed my eyes, I began to see a scene as though the rapture had already happened and great multitudes and humans were left behind and I saw as many regretted bitterly as they knew that the rapture had taken place, I was then taken forward in time in the vision still in the tribulation period and I saw a scene that shocked me greatly.

POWERFUL ANTICHRIST WEAPON
In that vision, I then saw a large building where people suppose to be working and in that earthly building, I saw so many people of different gender, race and tribe, it seems like a very large organization, I saw them as if they have now been trapped by the Anti Christ and those people I saw were coming to line up one after the other to receive the mark of the beast. Then I was extremely shocked in that vision when I saw a human like robot, this human like robots that works for the anti christ has a very excellent Artificial intelligence and it could even detect those who has not received the mark of the beast or not. It was a sophisticated and highly intellectual robot that the Anti Christ use too along with his followers who are real demon from hell fire in human flesh and those who received his mark.

WHAT THE ANTI CHRIST ROBOT WOULD DO
The robot I saw could speak and reply people correctly and it has great knowledge and then I awoke from the vision. As I wondered about the vision, the Spirit of the Lord then told me and said, “Those robots that will be used by the Anti Christ are programmed with Artificial intelligence, and such will also be used as a powerful weapon by the anti christ to perfectly detect who has received the mark of the beast or not and also the statistics of the world population who has not received the mark from those who received it”
The spirit of the Lord then told me that the enemy seeks to use Artificial Intelligence in robots even for evil purpose and even in the tribulation that the anti christ would use it.

THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST
This robot that uses Artificial Intelligence was used for evil purpose by the Anti Christ and it was this particular robot that the scripture also spoke about as the image of the beast that is owned by the beast and works for the beast which also has the ability to perfectly speak through Artificial Intelligence and many would be killed in that time for the anti christ will do much evil with it.

Revelation  13:15 And he had power to give life unto the IMAGE OF THE BEAST, that the IMAGE OF THE BEAST should both SPEAK, and cause that as many as would not worship the IMAGE OF THE BEAST should be killed. 

Revelation: 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

The Spirit of the Lord also said I should explain to you verse 18 & 17 of revelation chapter 13 for now mysteries shall be revealed that many may be saved.

MEANING OF 666
Revelation  13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the NUMBER OF HIS NAME.

Revelation  13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for IT IS THE NUMBER OF MAN; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

It is said that it is the number of man. Please note that man was made on the 6 day.

Man only has 3 main entity made on the 6 day. Now see this:

MAN SOUL MADE ON DAY 6
MAN SPIRIT MADE ON DAY 6
MAN BODY MADE ON DAY 6
Which gives us 666 to be the number of man. But we see in verse 17 that it is referred to us as the number of his name. What that means is that satan wants to claim total ownership of man soul-6, spirit-6, body-6, which were made on the 6 day to his name, that is whosoever that receives that mark 666 has given his/her entire being soul, spirit and body to satan and such can never be saved.

Repent now beloved from all sins,
Believe in Jesus Christ and you shall be saved from all your sins.
GOD BLESS YOU.

SECOND ONE (PROPHECY):

AN URGENT WARNING FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO HIS CHURCH.

DO NOT WORSHIP ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE A. I, IT IS THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST.

ANYONE WHO IS ENAMORED, CAPTIVATED, ENTHRALLED, ENCHANTED, FASCINATED, ENTRANCED, SMITTEN WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OR LIKE IT, OR LOVE IT, IS GUILTY OF WORSHIPPING THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST AND SHALL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. BE WARNED.

BY SISTER HAPPINESS AIBANGBEE

DEC. 1ST, 2020

I was very disturbed while I was watching this video a couple of days ago. I showed it to some brethrens who were in my house last Sunday. I told them that
Artificial Intelligence, aka A.I is getting more sophisticated and more advanced by the day. And many are simply blown away with it and this poses the danger of falling into the trap of worshipping the image of the beast. I told them never to be excited or go wow when they see these things.

A short while later, the Lord said, Daughter post that video. And warn my people not to worship the image of the beast. The Lord explained that those things we watched in the video have damned many souls to hell. While some have received the mark of the beast by accepting the rfid microchip, others have also have their souls damned to the lake of fire, by worshipping the image of the beast. The Lord was very emphatic about it.

God’s people should not be carried away with these hellish scientific breakthroughs.

And now, as you can see in the video, we now have car robots. Cars that can convert to cyborgs or vice versa. Dancing and flying cars. And humanity are going crazy about them.

SO WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ?

The Lord Jesus Christ have revealed that Artificial Intelligence ( A.I ) is nothing but the image of the beast spoken of in the book of Revelation 13:15.

The divine revelation of A.I being the image of the beast was given by the Lord Jesus Christ sometime in 2018. I posted it on August 11th, 2019.

And it’s titled ; THE ROLE OF A.I (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) IN THE AGENDA OF THE ANTI CHRIST.

The following is an excerpt from that post.

The Lord said ” Daughter, The A.I is the image of the beast. The robots that are now invented are the main A.I agenda, they are the image of the beast. In Revelation 13, the image could speak. The whole world is worshipping this image. Daughter , very soon any body that shall opposed the A.I shall be put to death or imprisoned.”

This is what the Lord Jesus Christ said about Artificial Intelligence. In addition, the Lord called A.I Anti-Christ Instrument .

“And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed” – Rev. 13:15

Indeed, Artificial intelligence which is the image of the beast is been made to both speak and act just like humans. In most cases , with a more superior intelligence.

A.I have become such hyper-intelligent machines that today, computers can fly planes, interpret X-rays, and sift through forensic evidence; algorithms can paint masterpiece artworks and compose symphonies, Acts as sex partners ( sex dolls) to such an extent that some humans prefer them to natural human beings, acts as news casters, bank workers, address international conferences, appear in t.v talk shows, etc. “Google is developing “artificial moral reasoning” so that its driverless cars can make decisions about potential accidents.” And one renown American professor ( name withheld) is greatly fascinated with uploading the human brain, intellect, and emotion into a computer. He is going about exploring how the human brain can be digitalized and how humans can become immortal through artificial intelligence.

Do not be carried away with the so called technological innovation. No, it’s not mere technology. This is the image of the beast.

Brethren be careful, be very careful. Do not be carried away with the so called technical revolution of artificial intelligence, which the Lord Jesus Christ called “anti Christ instruments.”

The dancing cars turned cyborgs dancing in this video are no ordinary machines. These machines are purely demonic invention with a sinister hidden agenda. They are gradually taking over the world. Many companies are laying off their workers as robots have taken over the employees jobs. This is trending everywhere nowadays. And one day after the rapture , they will destroy humans.

You will recalled that the Lord gave us a divine revelation exposing the sinister agenda of artificial intelligence in terms of robots.
I posted that revelation on Oct. 7th 2020. You can find it on my timeline.

( A DIVINE REVELATION FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

HOW THEY STOLE HUMAN’S INTELLIGENCE AND TRANSFER IT TO MACHINE TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

THE “STAY AT HOME” SLOGAN.

SATAN,S AGENDA TO REPLACE HUMANS WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (A.I) ON PLANET EARTH.

AFTER THE RAPTURE, ROBOTS SHALL DESTROY HUMANITY ON A LARGE SCALE.

OCTOBER 7, 2020.)

HOW DOES ONE WORSHIP THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST ?

So how does one worship the image of the beast ? By showing admiration, wonder, awe for it, by liking it, or loving it , all these are ways men worship the image of the beast. When men sees these things and go wow , this is awesome, such an individual is worshipping the image of the beast. Additionally, anyone who buy these kind of cars, or buy sex dolls, or who is fascinated with these things in the name of technology , electronic and robotic innovation is really worshipping the image of the beast. There are Christians who foolishly defend these things and argued that these things are mere technological innovation and nothing else.
I plead with you, to desist from such arguments, so that you won’t be find guilty of worshipping the image of the beast.

When you buy these satanic cars or sex dolls, you are worshipping the image of the beast. The Lord Jesus Christ said I should warn you, do not engage in any of these things. It will take you straight to the lake of fire.

PUNISHMENT FOR THOSE WHO WORSHIP THE IMAGE OF BEAST

The punishment for those who worship the image of the beast is the same as those who worship the beast and those who received the mark of the beast.

The truth is, when you worship the image of the beast you are giving your allegiance, your acceptance and your devotion to the beast and invariably to the devil who gave his power to the beast. You are showing admiration to satan who is behind all these things.

These three things must be avoided at all cost.

1. Don’t worship the beast.

2. Don’t worship the image of the beast.

3. Don’t receive his mark on your forehead or on any of your hands.

CONSEQUENCES OF WORSHIPPING THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST

Firstly, all those who worship the image of the beast will suffer the wrath of God. The Lord had designated special angels for this assignment. These angels shall pour the wrath of God on those who accept the mark of the beast and those who worship his image.

Revelation 16:2

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which WORSHIP HIS IMAGE. (emphasis mine)

Secondly, those who worship the image of the beast will suffer eternal torments in the lake of fire, alongside those who worship the beast and those who receive his mark.

Revelation 14:9-11

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and HIS IMAGE, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and HIS IMAGE, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.( emphasis mine)

The bible reiterates this in Revelation 19: 20.

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and THEM THAT WORSHIPPED HIS IMAGE. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone” ( emphasis mine)

You have seen it, that those who worship the image of the beast shall eternally burn in the lake of fire with the beast whose image they so much admired and worshipped. Stay clear of this damnable sin.

May the Lord grant his people the grace to stay away from worshipping the image of the beast.

God bless you.

Shalom.

Daniel 3 New King James Version

The Image of Gold

3 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was [a]sixty cubits and its width six cubits. He set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. And King Nebuchadnezzar sent word to gather together the satraps, the administrators, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. So the satraps, the administrators, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces gathered together for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then a herald cried [b]aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples,⁹ nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”

So at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the horn, flute, harp, and lyre, in symphony with all kinds of music, all the people, nations, and languages fell down and worshiped the gold image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

Daniel’s Friends Disobey the King

Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and accused the Jews. They spoke and said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O king, live forever! 10 You, O king, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the gold image; 11 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”

13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

Saved in Fiery Trial

19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. 20 And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore, because the king’s command was [c]urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his [d]counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the[e] Son of God.”

Nebuchadnezzar Praises God

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the [f]mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire. 27 And the satraps, administrators, governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together, and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them.

28 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel[g] and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God! 29 Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.”

30 Then the king [h]promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the province of Babylon.
