FACING DEATH WITHOUT FEAR 不害怕面對死亡

Daniel 但 以 理 書 3

Listen to the sermon, 聽講道

1. The Threat Of Dying Is Real 死亡的威脅是真實的

14 Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you refuse to serve my gods or to worship the gold statue I have set up? 15 I will give you one more chance. If you bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments, all will be well. But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. What god will be able to rescue you from my power then?” Daniel 3:14-15

14尼布甲尼撒問他們說:“沙得拉、米煞、亞伯尼歌啊!你們真的不事奉我的神,也不向我所立的金像下拜嗎?15現在,如果你們想清楚,一聽見角、笛、琵琶、弦琴、豎琴、風笛和各種樂器的聲音,就俯伏向我所做的像下拜,那還可以。如果你們不下拜,就必立刻扔在烈火的窯中。哪裡有神能救你們脫離我的手呢?”  但 以 理 書 3:14-15

2. Faith Enable You To Face Death Without Fear 信心可使你面對死亡不害怕

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, Your Majesty can be sure that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

16沙得拉、米煞、亞伯尼歌回答王說:“尼布甲尼撒啊!這件事我們無需回答你。17如果我們被扔在火窯裡,我們所事奉的 神必能拯救我們;王啊!他必拯救我們脫離烈火的窯和你的手。18即或不然,王啊!你要知道,我們決不事奉你的神,也不向你所立的金像下拜。” 但 以 理 書 3:16-18

3. Fear Does Not Go Away Quietly 害怕不會安靜的離開

19Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that his face became distorted with rage. He commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual. 20Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully clothed.22 And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames leaped out and killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in! 23 So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell down into the roaring flames. Daniel 3:19-23

19當時尼布甲尼撒向沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌大發烈怒,連臉色也變了,吩咐人把窯燒熱,比平常猛烈七倍。20又吩咐他軍隊中幾個最精壯的士兵,把沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌綁起來,扔在烈火的窯中。21於是這三個人穿著外袍、長褲、頭巾和身上其他的衣服,被綁起來,扔在烈火的窯中。22由於王的命令緊急,窯又燒得非常猛烈,那些把沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌抬起來的人,都被火燄燒死了。23而沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌這三個人仍被綁著,落入烈火的窯中。但 以 理 書 3:19-23

4. Facing Death Is Easier When You Know Who Is With You 當你知道是誰與你同在時, 面對死

    亡就比較容易

24But suddenly, as he was watching, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?” “Yes,” they said, “we did indeed, Your Majesty.” 25“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire. They aren’t even hurt by the flames! And the fourth looks like a divine being !” 26Then Nebuchadnezzar came as close as he could to the door of the flaming furnace and shouted: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire. Daniel 3:24-26

24那時尼布甲尼撒王非常驚奇,急忙起來,問他的謀臣說:“我們綁起來扔在火裡的,不是三個人嗎?”他們回答王說:“王啊!是的。”25王說:“但我見有四個人,並沒有綁著,在火中走來走去,也沒有受傷,並且那第四個的樣貌好像神子。”26於是尼布甲尼撒走近烈火的窯口,說:“至高 神的僕人沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌啊!你們出來,到這裡來吧。”沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌就從火中出來。但 以 理 書 3:24-26

5. People Notice When You Face Death Without Fear 當你面對死亡沒有害怕時, 人們會注意到

27Then the princes, prefects, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke! 28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. Daniel 3:27-28

27那些總督、總監、省長和王的謀臣,都聚攏來看這三個人,見火無力傷他們的身體;他們的頭髮沒有燒焦,衣服沒有燒壞,身上也沒有火燒的氣味。28尼布甲尼撒說:“沙得拉、米煞、亞伯尼歌的 神是應當稱頌的,他差遣使者拯救那些倚靠他的僕人;他們違抗王的命令,寧願捨命,除了自己的 神以外,不肯事奉敬拜任何其他的神。但 以 理 書 3:27-28
