(KJV.) DANIEL 3:25
(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.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Brethren, at times when issues of life overwhelm our souls, as waves of the ocean, roaring and tumbling, casting down our lives into its depths, though we may feel like our lives are almost over, that there are no other ways out of what we face; today, Jesus encourages all suffering believers that they are not alone in this world, regardless of what their circumstances may be, he is within, around and watching over their souls, to free them from all troubles, work all issues together for good; because of his agape love for souls; therefore, if there are brothers and sisters among us, who are overwhelmed with the cares of this life; pray fervently, read the scriptures, put your trust in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
In reference to the above text, in a nutshell; King Nebucadnezer made a decree in his province, that when the sound of musical instruments, was blown, every man should fall down and worship his golden image, that anyone who refused to obey his declaration would perish in a burning fiery furnace; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego servants of God were Jews, who feared the LORD, obeyed the laws of Moses, cf. Exodus 20:2-5; therefore, they refused to bow down to worship his golden idol; as a result, they were condemned, bounded, and cast down to perish in a furnace of fire; because of the intensity of the burning fire, the people who threw them into the fire, lost their lives, but the servants of God, entered into the fires without the screams of the heat, nor burned into ashes, why? because Jesus quenched the heat of the fire, though the fire was burning, they did not feel the heat or the impact of its flames; therefore, believers, there are no type of furnace fires burning in our lives, that Jesus is not aware, with us, or cannot quench entirely; he is in our flame of fires; therefore, let us not worry ourselves, no fires by enemies, can burn believers into ashes, no matter how intense the flames of fires may be, believers will come out safely, without burns, or the smell of smokes from the furnace of fires; trust in Jesus!
The King was worried, went to view what was going on with the servants of God, surprisingly, he saw another person with them in the midst of the fire, and they were no longer bounded, rather walked and talked freely amid the fire; the King called his elders and said "I saw a fourth person who looked like the Son of God in the fire with the rebels."; The Son of God? This is a revelation of Jesus! This my point, first of all, at the time of King Nebuchadnezzar, Jesus was not yet born; therefore, how could the King perceived that the fourth person was a Son of God?, it was only by the revelation from God; therefore, truly, Jesus is the Son of God, who was with God, before the foundation of the world; for instance, during his ministry on earth, when Simon Peter discerned who he was, Jesus said to him, Blessed art thou, ....for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. cf Matthew 16:17; therefore, the King might have had a vision, saw Jesus by revelation from God, or else he could not have discerned who Jesus was with the rebels in the furnace of fires.
Dearly beloved, Jesus is real! let us put our trust in him, he heals the sick, cures the blind, lepers walk, answers prayers, there is salvation, free grace, peace, the hope of his second coming, life everlasting in him: therefore, whatever is overwhelming souls? Jesus says, come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. cf. Matthew 11:28; overload the burdens upon his shoulders, trust in him, with him all things are possible. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 JOHN 5:11-12
(11) And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
(12) He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
JESUS IS ALL IN ALL!
Brethren, from the foundation of the world, the fact of life remains the same; Jesus is life in all of the creation; he is the word which was spoken by God, to create all things of the world, he was with God during creation, everything was made by him, there was nothing made without him, he is the living, life and the light of man, cf. John 1:1-5; therefore, whether we acknowledge him as Lord and Savior or not, he is still the breath of life, the quickening force, the light that lightens the heart, engineers the mortal bodies of all souls throughout lifetimes; not only that but also his spirit resides in all things created by God. this is a great factor!
(i) life is given freely to souls by Jesus Christ on the day of conception, birth into the world with gifts and talents to shine among the darkness; whether we exemplify ourselves in him or not, we have his life and light within our hearts, each and every soul is equipped with wisdom, talented by his spirit to perform certain duty very well than others; therefore, let us thank him for his grace of life, appreciate him and glorify his holy name; for, without his Spirit, we can do nothing ourselves.
(ii) the second life, is the eternal life, the life after death, this is the life that all souls need to seek after before death; the first life was given freely to souls during conception; the second life, which is the eternal life, is free as well, however, a soul has to take the necessary step to receive it, the fact is, we can only have the eternal life when we accept the giver of life, Jesus into our heart as our Lord and Savior of the world; he suffered for our iniquities, was crucified, buried, resurrected from the grave on the third day granted victory, free grace to eternal life, if we receive him into our heart, acknowledge him as Lord and Savior, salvation and eternity is secured in him forevermore: Jesus is the way, truth, and life, no one comes to the Father, but by him; cf. John 14:6; this is an amazing grace!
Dearly beloved, for the fact that the spirit of Jesus lives in all the living, all souls are one in him, if we choose Jesus as Lord and Savior, we have eternal life after death, if not, we end up in eternal damnation; the question is what is your choice? eternal life or eternal damnation? ponder on it, and make the right choice today before it is too late! Jesus is coming soon! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) JAMES 5:8-9
(8) Be ye also patient, establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
(9) Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
ESTABLISH YOUR HEARTS IN JESUS!
In the above text, Apostle James encourages believers to have patience with one another, and solidify their hearts, in expectation of the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; he also advised them not to resent one another in the faith, harbor malice, bitterness, enmity, hatred, envy, jealousy, strife spirits etc., against another; believers are to exemplify themselves in Christ, our actions and behaviors are under scrutiny at all times, what we do in this world, say to people matters to Jesus Christ and the world as a whole; therefore, let us not get carried away with the carnalities of this world, but watch our steps, walk in the spirit, be shining examples in this world of darkness; when temptations crosses our pathways, rebuke them away, when we sidetracked from the will of Jesus, let us ask for his mercies to get back on track, that we may be worthy on the day of accountability before the judgment throne: Jesus said, "But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. cf. Luke 12:48: Therefore, let us know what we are doing in the body of Christ, be truthful to one another, time is upon us, Jesus is coming back soon!
Brethren, the world is for those who can wait; therefore, for those of us who are in waiting rooms all over the world, in expectations of the goodness and mercies of Jesus Christ, today let us be encouraged to exercise patience, wait upon him, the author, and the finisher of faith; his timing is the best time, he knows our blueprints before we enter this world; our days are numbered before him, if we yield our lives completely unto him, trust him no matter what may be our predicaments, Jesus will align all things in proper alignments and make it all good again; grant our heart desires and expectations, direct our pathways in his righteousness into eternal lives. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!
