I received the following message a few days ago and, while it uses incorrect names and certain other concepts that i do not fully agree with, i believe the fundamental message IS relevant
We should be prepared to be thrown into the furnace if necessary rather than compromise our faith and we should trust Yah to be there for us in such a situation
May Yah bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and grant you His peace.

“GOD KNOWS .. AND HE WILL BE THERE”
When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you.
When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you.
ISAIAH 43 : 2
GOD, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND .. I AM A CHRISTIAN .. I DO BELIEVE .. BUT WHY AM I STILL HAVING SO MANY PROBLEMS ?
When you read the above Scripture .. you will notice that as God speaks, He begins each sentence with the words when you ..
Isnt it amazing how so many people are still living each day with this mistaken belief .. The moment I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior .. my life is going to become really simple .. no more sleepless nights .. no more stress .. no more troubles .. no more problems ..
WHO SAID SO .. We have said so .. We have decided that is how it should be ..
Well it certainly was not Jesus .. in fact in John 16 : 33 He warned us .. In this world you will have tribulations
And it was not God our Father .. because in His Word He Himself is telling us .. When you go through
So we need to get ourselves out of the mindset that when we accept Jesus into our lives .. that He is going to act as our magic wand to remove and take away all of our problems, troubles and worries.
Having real faith in God does not mean that you will never have to walk through some fiery, tough situation ..
What having real faith actually means is this .. Knowing, trusting and having full faith in Jesus Christ .. and walking fully in His spirit means that although the tests and trials will come .. God is able to turn everyone of your burning firestorms into a walk in the park ..
In the book of Daniel 3 .. We are told the remarkable story of three young men .. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego .. These three boys loved their Almighty Father God so much that when they were ordered by King Nebuchadnezzar to bow and worship the golden idol that he had built, they refused .. when the three boys refused, they did so knowing that their punishment for not obeying the King, was that they would be thrown into a burning furnace .. but they were willing to take their chances in the cruel hands of King Nebuchadnezzar because they had full faith that God would deliver them from the furnace.
And so it was .. the three Hebrew boys were tied together and thrown into the blazing fire.
King Nebuchadnezzar was rather impressed with himself .. the furnace was seven times hotter than normal and he knew that he had surely taught the three young men a good lesson.
But Wait .. as he stared into the furnace to admire his handy work .. what did he see .. what he saw was not one .. not two .. not three .. but four men in the fire .. four men that were untied, walking around in the fire showing no signs of being injured by the flames.
The King was so amazed when he saw this and he was astonished when he realised that the fourth man looked just like the Son of God .. he immediately called the boys out of the furnace and when he inspected them closely he saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies .. not one hair on their heads had been burnt .. in fact they did not even smell of smoke.
King Nebuchadnezzar was so surprised when he saw first hand that the boys had defeated and survived a situation that had destroyed so many other people.
What an amazing story .. and here is why it is so relevant to you today .. you have absolutely no guarantee that you will never have to face some terrifying situations if you believe in God .. but what you can do is declare, with one-hundred percent faith that if you face your circumstance in and with the presence of Jesus Christ that the effects of the circumstances on your life will be drastically and significantly changed.
If you have real faith in God .. you will be given His power to walk through what so many other people have burned in.
There are very few people who will ever truly understand or appreciate the fire that you have personally had to walk through .. but GOD knows .. He knows your fiery walk to victory .. and do not fear .. He is willing and more than able to heal the blisters on your feet .. the feet that have traveled THROUGH the tests and trials that have come up against you.
THE CHALLENGE AHEAD OF YOU IS NEVER AS GREAT AS THE POWER BEHIND YOU
