CHAPTER ONEFIRST WITNESS - MANThe first witness I would like to present in this case is man: the beingGod created in His own image and likeness Genesis 1:27. Before the birth ofChrist Jesus, Nebuchadnezzar, a heathen king in ancient Babylonian Empiretestified by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that God has a Son. Let us readthe account in the book of Daniel Chapter 3:24, 25.The Bible says “Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up inhaste, and spake, and said unto his counselors, Did not we cast three men boundinto the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. Heanswered and said, lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, andthey have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is LIKE THE SON OF GOD”. (Emphasismine).This is a familiar and popular story of the encounter of the three Hebrewchildren Shadrack, Meshach and Abednego with Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. Thethree of them were among the Jews taken captive by the Babylonian king. Though ina strange land under captivity, they refuse to worship the heathen god Daniel3:16-18. They knew the Omni-potent God, Jehovah-Shammah as their God and as such,they were not afraid of death. Hebrews 13:6.As a result of their refusal to worship the gods of Nebuchadnezzar, theBible says-“Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changedagainst Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded thatthey should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach,Meshach, and Abed-nego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.” Daniel3:19-20.In verse 21, the Bible says “Then these men were bound in their coats,their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into themidst of the burning fiery furnace.” The king carried out his evil plan but littledid he know that the God of the three Hebrew children made the fire. No wonderJesus says “Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul,but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew10:28. This is why they were not afraid of the destruction rather, they trustedthe God who says “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; andthrough the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through thefire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah43:2.To the king's dismay, the Ancient of days arrived at the burning fieryfurnace to welcome His faithful children. The eternal Son of God was beforecreation. “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing madethat was made.” John 1:3. As you read my book titled Hundred Names of Jesus FromGenesis to Revelation, you will discover that Jesus, the Son of God was frometernity past.
