1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
Our setting is "the province of Babylon." No place in the world could touch its splendor. With its temples, palaces, canals, and double-walled fortifications, Babylon was truly an architectural masterpiece. It's Hanging Gardens for instance, were considered by the Greeks as one of the seven wonders of the world.
Babylon did not reach its zenith until Nebuchadnezzar II took the throne (605-562 B.C.) 'Welcome to his world; one of the greatest empires in history. "Nebuchadnezzar the king" was the most powerful leader in the world. He had an agenda, exhibited by erecting this vast "image of gold." The golden statue was "threescore cubits" or sixty cubits high and "six cubits" wide. According to the Greek historian Herodotus in Book 1.178: "The royal cubit is greater by three fingers' breadth than the common cubit." A common cubit was a little over eighteen inches, while a royal cubit was twenty and a half inches. Therefore the "image of gold" could have been over a hundred feet tall, and ten feet wide. To put it mildly, Nebuchadnezzar wanted everyone to see this golden image "he set it up in the plain of Dura."
Babylon was another white nation which became so powerful, it heavily influenced the rest of the known world, much like America today. Currently, we may not have some huge, still image of gold erected and it being manditory that we bow down to it, rather we have moving images IN EVERY SHADE OF MUD, spread across TV screens everywhere. White men and women burn in their lust as they voluntarily stare at moving images of beasts.
2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. 3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
Nebuchadnezzar had no apparent opposition. All the political officials and dignitaries from throughout the empire were 'on board' with their king. God had allowed him to wield tremendous power. It lasted for a time, as it was set up to fall, yet not before Yahweh would fulfill His purposes and display His ultimate power in it. Men arrogantly make their laws and promote their practices, and we assume because so many go along with them, they must be alright.
4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, 5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: 6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
Even back then music was used to capture the attention and emotions of the masses. Look at the way music is used in our day to 'loosen our people up' to accepting (or at least not opposing) blatant ungodliness. Talentless beasts for instance, go into recording studios and produce music that is taking the hearts of our people and giving them over to satan.
Along with this, the king made the golden image 'big' so everybody would want to see it. Certain individuals are made 'big' today, giving them center stage and unlimited exposure so they can promote their Babylonian agenda. Therefore it's not really that much different today, with Israelites constantly facing the temptation to compromise.
But not only the music and the image, but the "herald", whose job it is to draw and put the people's attention where the king wants it to be. For decades we've grown up with corporate news media which is nothing more than a jew propaganda machine. Now with the internet, we have what was known as 'alternative media' now being called 'the alt-right' which has rounded up millions of naive whites. There's still Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, and Beck, but now there's Alex Jones, Richard Spencer, Jared Taylor, and others. These are nothing more than hired-whore-heralds of compromise, crying out for everyone to look to something other than God- WHICH ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH!
Don't be deceived by these so-called conservatives or these pop, watered-down white seperatists, who are nothing more than CONTROLLED OPPOSITION, GATEKEEPERS, strategically positioned and equipped to distract and confuse whites from finding out THE WHOLE TRUTH. Understand, the enemies of God don't care if you're a republican. It doesn't alter their plans at all for you to be a denominational Christian. They really don't even care if you're just a white nationalist. What they fear are the servants of the God of the Scriptures. We will overcome them by being the only ones with the capacity to go beyond Babylon, thru the indwelling Spirit of God. As you will see, Babylonian power and all that are tied in with it are limited, they can only take you so far. You must decide if you want to continue to go along with Babylon; if whether or not you want to continue following after their shills.
7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. 8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews. 9 They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever. 10 Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image: 11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Further clarification must be given in regards to the term "Jews" as it is used here and throughout the Old Testament. As has been noted before, the use of the term 'jew' can be very confusing. The enemies of God prey upon this to deceive the white race. Those today who call themselves jews are not the ancient Israelites of the Old Testament.
In the Old Testament, the terms 'jew' or 'jews' aren't used anywhere in the first eleven Books of the Bible. Remember, after the death of King Solomon the kingdom divided into the southern kingdom of Judah, and the northern kingdom which retained the name Israel. In the Old Testament, the term 'jews' is used to distinguish Israelites who were from the southern kingdom of Judah. "Jews" is a short form of Judahites, throughout the Old Testament.
As we've seen in other studies, the terms 'jew' and 'jews' in the New Testament are used in reference to those who geographically resided in Judaea- they were Judaeans. Whereas again in the Old Testament, after the kingdom divided, it refers to Judahites. Today, those who call themselves jews are predominately the genetic descendants of the Canaanites thru the Edomites (for further information, see the article: "SEX IN THE GARDEN 1: JACOB & ESAU").
Therefore even though those who call themselves jews today are not Israelites, throughout the Scriptures "jew" is a geographical term in reference to those who still could've been Israelites. Such is the case here with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and of course, Daniel.
On nearly every airwave, the heralds are ranting, the beats and moans of multiculturalism can be heard, the subtle counterfeits to faith in Christ is being promoted; what will you do? These Judahite Israelites would not compromise:
13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? 15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? 16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. 17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. 18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Secretly we may ask: "Were these three men insane?" "Would God expect them to risk their lives?" That's how our carnal mind works. We try to rationalize how we think God should be. Yet God's ways are not our carnally-minded ways: HE IS SPIRIT. In spite of questions which pop into our minds, there's Someone inside of us Who wants us to stand up and proclaim- ONLY WHAT YAHWEH WANTS MATTERS!
This was some kind of ceremony. Babylon was the most powerful political/religious system of that time. There were others such as Egypt, Greece and Rome, even the British Empire and America. But all of them were a mixture, based on the philosophies of men, with some Bible principles thrown in at varying degrees.
The golden image represented Babylon's appreciation to the false gods they looked to for protection. To bow to this image was to worship their gods. However, Israelites should never compromise, but only worship God, depending upon His protection.
19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
Nearly everybody- a king, a president, even a preacher, will put up with you just fine, until you refuse to go along with his agenda. Nebuchadnezzar was "full of fury" when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego openly refused to comply with his demands. The king wasn't used to this so he "commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont" or it was known "to be heated." There is nothing here from this king except carnally-minded arrogance, invoking fear, nothing else. The highest power this world has is the fleshly fear of death. Therefore going beyond Babylon is trusting God can defy death on your behalf if need be.
20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
These "three men" put it all on the line for God. They faced giving their lives thru an excruciatingly painful death. Yet to compromise was not an option. There was no fear or hesitancy in them, at all. These men not only said it, but they were fully persuaded that they could trust God. They settled in their minds that they would not be afraid.
When you refuse to compromise, when there is no fear, it confirms that an additional Person is with you. At first we may not become aware of His Presence, but He's there. Because of this "fourth" Person, they suffered "no hurt." Recognize why this happened: so no Israelite should ever be afraid. The worst that the most powerful king on earth can do, is not enough to hurt an Israelite who trusts God. We know when we've went beyond Babylon, when others look for us and they see "the Son of God."
26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
The last thing our carnal mind wants is to take one step toward a burning fiery furnace! These three men did the complete opposite of what 'makes sense' or the majority. Sure moderates are better than liberals, conservatives are better than moderates, and white nationalism may be better than conservatism, but nothing compares to being a faithful Israelite who trusts God!
POLITICS AND RELIGION DO NOT MAKE US MORE SPIRITUAL OR BRING US CLOSER TO GOD. BABYLON MAY BE THE BEST MEN CAN DO, BUT IT CANNOT STOP GOD! God can personally take us beyond Babylon WITH HIS MIGHTY, SUPERNATURAL POWER!
The king had such big plans to put more people under his control. Yet he left like everyone else, amazed at the dependability of God. All of this occured because three faithful men would not compromise! They all witnessed the power of God thru the lives of these three men:
27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
Going beyond Babylon is not fearing the fire! Nothing can touch you without first coming thru God. These three Hebrews tuned out all the noise, even the threats of the king, so they could obey the God within them. They denied reality and the consequences of what they would suffer, remaining true to the Invisible God AND HE MET THEM in the flames.
28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
Now we have this king praising God! What a testimony! We would hope our new 'king' in Washington DC might do the same if he could only come out from the whispers of the serpents- one being his senior advisor, his own son-in-law Jared Kushner, WHO OF COURSE IS A JEW! Just look up 666 5th Avenue Manhattan, New York and find out who just had to buy it.
God is already there, ready to help the white race when we finally decide we're through with Babylon. We must repent of our carnally-minded, reactionary methods and ways, and follow the Spirit of God! Stop going along with 'the big show' and begin trusting God. Even this carnal king recognized what it all came down to, for he said that God "delivered his servants that trusted in him." No matter where we go in the Scriptures, it all comes down to one thing- whether or not Israelites will trust Yahweh. WILL WE CONTINUE TO COMPROMISE OR WILL WE TRUST GOD, WHEN THE MOMENT COMES FOR EACH OF US TO GO INTO THE FIRE?
29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.
This king is no different than those today who think the only answer is to keep making more and more laws. Yet God doesn't want mere outward conformity; He wants your whole heart. There's no doubt He had the hearts of these three faithful men. We already have His law in the Scriptures and we have His Spirit to govern us from within; we need nothing else.
30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.
Humble yourselves in the sight of Yahweh and He will lift you up! Why were these Judahites in Babylon in the first place? Because Judah ended up going the same way as Israel, into idolatry and racemixing. Today, we as Israelites are in Babylon for the exact same reason except this time, the jews have brought Babylon to us. Can't you see that only His Spirit can deliver us?! When whites finally turn to Yahweh alone, away from Babylon, there will be far more than just a political turn-around.
God is with us when we will not compromise, in places like a fiery furnace. What we need is beyond Babylon; beyond conservatism, nationalism, or just the Constitution. What we need is pure Christianity which only comes from within. What we need is the God in the furnace Who is the same God within you; Yahweh the Most High.
We must trust God like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. There is no doubt Israel's God is real and fully trustworthy. The Spirit of God gives us the courage to stand in the face of our greatest fears. For us to experience God in our lives, we must look beyond Babylon.
