About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series

Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?

Devotional

Never will we enter our furnace alone. ‘God with us’ is individual but also corporate. God is with me and with us – in His Body together. “A threefold cord is not quickly broken” (Eccles. 4:12).

Only in three-plus-the-Fourth can we endure and survive unhurt. The three men represent the Church. Christ as the Son of God, the Fourth.

As a Body of believers with Christ as Head, we will face our fires together. As Church, we will be formed together by the preparation of His will in everyday life. And by sharing real life, we will be endued with the faith to live or die, together leaving the choice to God.

The Famous Three were obviously forged by earlier fires into a unit of consecration. They did not arrive at the top of the furnace in a moment. They were rehearsed by many daily fires in how to face the big one.

I will build My church and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it].
Matthew 16:18 AMP

The ‘infernal region’ is the furnace of everlasting fire, the real furnace from which Christians have been rescued. And from this fire of evil, Christ’s true Church is immune. O Glory!
