Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did not follow the status quo…There is only one God who made heaven & earth. Dan 3:1-30. It’s no different today for Christians either. The political forces are just as much anti Jehovah Jireh. Vindication is not always as obvious, nor was it in the Old Testament, the New or in these Last days, but God’s everlasting arm is just as mighty to save. The people may have changed but God has not.
The world subtly says bow before me, at times it loudly beats its drum expecting us to dance to its perverse tunes, and moreover it will turn up the heat for a desired effect. Secular evangelism intertwined with political punch & the church of modern myth, church & state two. Behind it lays a spiritual battle of unseen magnitude just as it has been for a long, long time.
The talking snake (spirits enter in) is just as much a roaring lion looking to devour.
1 Pet 5:8-9.
