| In this BRAND NEW,
as of January 1, 2015 presentation by Dr. Bob Holt, MD, Daniel chapter
THREE becomes NO LONGER a quaint little story meant to keep up
"Daniel in the Lion's Den" in a Biblical Hero who the Biblical Editors of these stories will later use to teach us the sequences of mystical animals and complex NUMEROLOGY on which we have DEPENDED to justify our belief in whatever worked-over CHRISTIANITY EVERYONE can find ACCEPTABLE and promise everyone ETERNAL LIFE,
In this BRAND NEW presentation, this chapter STEPS FORWARD, out of the cobwebs and shadows it has hidden in for 2000+ years and tells it as it IS, and as it always HAS BEEN!
Chapter THREE becomes a full-scale,
And still, in
the 21st century, remains
DIFFERENT IMAGE -- ALL OF GOLD!
BUT THE SAME MESSAGE AND THE SAME GOD, AFTER ALL! THE GOLDEN TRINITY!
William Miller, like the Seventh-day Adventists who followed him after 1844, adopted Protestantism as his "label" and the Book of Daniel as his book. Daniel 2 was "his" promise that God would destroy Pagan gods and this present world, and set up a new kingdom based on the laws of the True God and sing the new song of His Testimonies. But he failed to see the true story written here between the last few verses of Daniel 2 and the time when those pesky three Hebrews stayed standing when everyone else fell down and worshipped. --
The Adventists in 1844 had a glimpse of a Jewish human Jesus as a high priest, not "God", but later, in 1888, stumbled and resisted the oppressive mass and gravity of the majority for a moment, then fell into line. At that time we joined the crowd of universal gold-god worshippers! And O how good and comfortable it feels NOT TO BE STANDING ALONE while all our friends are bowing and worshipping.
We, the Blind, Deaf, and Illiterate!
Mark 4:9 "And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 11 "And he said unto them, Unto you (those with minds!) it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them."
Daniel 3:1"Nebuchadnezzar the king made an IMAGE OF GOLD, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits; be set up on the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. (The Babylonian numerical system at Daniel's time was based on 6, not 10, but I find no way to make something of this at the present moment. There was, however, an image marked 666 in Revelation chapter 13.)
2 "Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up." (True or not, the story-teller here is attempting to make us see Babylon as controlling the whole world, and these officials as being the officials who control all our behaviors, then and now).
3 "Then the princes, the governors, the captains, the judges, the treasurers. the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up." (Impossible, of course, in a REAL WORLD, but who says we're dealing in REALITY here?)
4 "Then an herald cried aloud, To you is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, --
5 "That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:-- (We'll deal a bit later with appropriate church music, and the instruments one may or may not play a bit later, Patrick!)
6 "And whoso FALLETH NOT DOWN and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace."
Verse 7 "Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchad-nezzar the king had set up."
Daniel 3:8 "Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews."
9 "They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever.
10 "Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image:
11 "And whoso FALLETH NOT DOWN and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace."
12 "There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O King, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou has set up. (We can assume from the way this is written that a certain amount of time had passed after the initial decree, the Decree of the Council of Nicaea had been passed making ALL RELIGIONS other than a carefully structured and rigidly enforced version of Christianity became ILLEGAL and non-conformity punished by DEATH ("The INQUISITION") Nebuchadnezzar's political and religious group the Roman Catholic Church ("Chaldeans") were monitoring the NON-CONFORMITY of JEWS and PROTESTANTS during this rather long period of time.
13 "Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these men before the king."
14 "Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do ye not serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?"
15 "Now if ye be ready that at the time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well; but if ye worship NOT, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?"
16 "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter."
17 "If it be so, Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us out of thine hand, O king."
18 "But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou has set up."
19 "Then was ADOLPH HITLER full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated."
20 "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."
21 "Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace."
22 "Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego."
23 "And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace."
24 "Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spoke, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king."
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."
26 "Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither."
(He was not going to risk the deaths of any more of his best soldiers trying to help them out of the fire!)
"Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire."

27 "And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had now power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them."
Obviously I've got some big-time creative explaining to do to make this fit the real historical situation we know so much about!
28 "Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they MIGHT NOT SERVE NOR WORSHIP ANY GODS, except their OWN GOD.
30 "Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in the province of Babylon." (The new Nation of Israel, still a part of Babylon (the Real World in which we all live,) does indeed convert the family homes of those who explode bombs hurting and killing Israelis into a "dunghill", while their parents or family declare them to be "martyrs" for the cause of Allah. Jews do not "cut these martyrs in pieces", they do it willingly to themselves with explosive vests containing dynamire.)
The REFUSAL of the 3 HEBREWS, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-hego to worship the Golden "TRINITY" image was honored, symbolically at least, on May 14, 15 - 1948 when Israel became a Nation once again!
The God of Israel is not now, nor ever has been the so-called "Holy Trinity" set up by the Christian Bishops under the direction of the Sun-worshipping Roman Emperor Constantine the Great at Nicaea, in France, in 325 AD. - Dr. Robert F. Holt, MD, MPH
back on -- in my imagination this time -- Patrick and I have not yet had this
conversation! Perhaps we will. Perhaps we won't.
Seventh-day Adventists believe they are the TRUE JEWS ("Israel of God" was
the exact phraseology Ellen White used in 1847). She's dead now and can't very well
change what she has written! But she did write enough to prove
my new interpretation of Daniel chapter 3, as we will now see (those with
"Patrick. God can consider 4 million DEAD JEWS to be just a small down-payment on getting their country back as a Jewish homeland in May 14, 15 -- 1948. Just like we in the Western World consider 50 million war-dead in World War II to be a small, --well maybe not small, but reasonable, -- price to pay for still having our FREEDOM TO SAY "NO" to Islamic Terrorists like Al Quiada after September 11, 2001 --- and to ISIS Terrorists in 2014.
God does indeed look at DEATH quite differently than we do, and MY INTERPRETATION of Daniel Chapter 3 is indeed backed up by PARALLEL sections of Matthew 24 and Isaiah 66 and Ellen White's earliest visions -- let's back-track to Daniel 3:19
SAME THING, ISAIAH VERSION: Isaiah 66:20 "And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts (four-headed leopards?), to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord."
SAME THING, ELLEN WHITE VERSION: "Early Writings" page 15 "When God spoke the TIME,
August 6, 1945 at
"He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, (note this is NOT Ellen White's books, completed long before August 6, 1945), and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses' did when he came down from Mount Sinai (Moses was not a Christian, and he, too, had reservations against worshipping large GOLDEN IMAGES!)
"The 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united (but not on the ground before Hitler's GOLDEN IMAGE). On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star --"
"containing Jesus' new name. At our happy, holy state the wicked were enraged. (They got up from lying face-down before Hitler's GOLDEN IMAGE and "would rush violently up to lay hands on us to thrust us into prison (as non-Trinitarian heretics), when we would stretch forth the hand in the name of the Lord, and they would fall helpless to the ground (common only in Pentecostal churches).
"Then it was that the synagogue of Satan (Trinitarians of all types) knew that God had loved us who could wash one another's feet (accept those with deviant beliefs and practices) and salute the brethren with a holy kiss (some of these practices definitely not Catholic!) and they worshipped at our feet."
"Yes, Bob, -- Patrick here."
"I've finished Daniel chapter 3."
"Did you figure out what 4 million dead Jews have to do with us, the Seventh-day Adventists, the "Israel of God" as Ellen White clearly called us on page 34 of "Early Writings"?
"Patrick, page 34 was part of another of Ellen's visions, which she experienced in 1847 at Topsham, Maine. By then a mere hand-full of Adventists, but not all, were keeping the Seventh-day Sabbath. Ellen was making a big distinction between those who were and those who weren't. Wrote Ellen --"And when the never-ending blessing was pronounced on those who had honored God in keeping His Sabbath holy, there was a mighty shout of victory over the beast and over his image." Here we're seemingly out of the range of Daniel chapter 3, but not really, and next I'll be getting into these subjects also."
"Bob, do you think it's OK for us to allow people to stand up and raise their arms above their heads, and sway like Elvis Presley as we sing the "New Songs of Zion?"
"Hey, Patrick. That's Daniel 3 theology! Go for it!"
"How about if we beat a few drums, loudly! Nebuchadnezzar's herald didn't say a thing about drums, although he specifically mentioned quite a few other instruments."
"Patrick, you guys are definitely marching to the sound of a different drummer!"
"But like I said in our first conversation about this subject, perhaps Christ will consider you as "honorary Jews" --- You're Shadrach, Phil Roseberg who has the initial advantage of a Jewish-sounding last name -- he's Meshach. And Zach MacDonald, he can march under the name of Abed-nego."
"Meanwhile, I'll be studying up for my forth-coming church trial. God has promised us Adventists the position of "Judges of all the Earth" for 1000 years, and we can start by disfellow-shipping Dr. Bob Holt for his totally heretical new interpretation of Daniel chapter 3."
So here it comes! Remember, you saw it here FIRST! Enjoy! --- Dr. Bob Holt, MD.
