Dena,
We have been discussing the book called revelation and that it is a book of symbols. The one that penned the book, John, was a Jew and I think that his readers could also be Jews and non Jews, and I think that the book could be understood by Jews that were versed in their scriptures. As a Jew, I can relate to the symbols in the book and they are even revealed to me.
So this Lake of Fire is written in many places in the book called revelation and the Lake of fire as a symbol then could be known to the Jewish reader.
But we have also been discussing the beast that came out of the sea and 666 and idols of the heart and Solomon's Temple and that the body is the Temple of God made of stone, a mansion. These are all related in the book and revealed in the scriptures of the Jews.
We have talked about the house built on sand that fell and a house built of wood will burn and fall. And I will be talking about that fire and wood and the Lake of Fire.
In Revelation 20 verse 14 it reads,[...And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death...].And we can read in chapter 2 verse 11,[...He that overcomes will not be hurt of the second death...]
In the part in Danial that you are reading, I think it talks about the king's image, Nebuchadnezzar, in gold. And those that would not bow down to the image and worship it such as Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego were cast into the fiery furnace. But they were not hurt by the fire. They were overcomers and their faith was tried by fire. Their house was not built of wood. Their house was The Temple of God, stone. And in the Father's house there are many mansions.
In the book called Isiah chapter 43 verse 2, we read,[....When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you, when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned neither shall the flame kindle upon you...]. There is much more to this....
Lou
