The antichrist Beast government system is global and the unified religious system is in the works. One will have to worship the Beast and it’s image to participate in the world and live (Rev.13:15). In Daniel 3, God’s people would not bow down to Nebuchadnezzar’s image. They would not worship the State. They would not worship the “gold”or any idol. They would not worship men. They would not participate in false worship. Their refusal to bow and their faithful stand for God enraged the king of Babylon. In Psalm 2, the kings of the earth take their stand against the LORD and against His anointed. Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego stayed faithful when the “kings of the earth” stood against them. They used their opportunity before the king to declare their devotion to the one true God. They trusted in the LORD no matter what the king did to them. Christ Himself went with them into the fiery furnace. He is with us, too.
Nebuchadnezzar responded and said, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, who has sent His angel and delivered His servants who put their trust in Him, violating the king’s command, and yielded up their bodies so as not to serve or worship any god except their own God.” Dan.3:28.
