We consider the appearance of a fourth person in the fiery furnace in Daniel 3, and the prophecy of the 70 weeks in Daniel 9 as God reveals more of His plan of redemption in anticipation of the coming of Messiah. We see:

  • In the account of the fiery furnace there is a picture of the redemption that Christ would accomplish in His coming.
  • In the prophecy of the 70 weeks, God gives us the timetable according to which Christ would come to redeem His people.

We are encouraged to be grateful to God if Christ has saved us from the fiery furnace of Hell, and to urgently seek Him for salvation if we have not yet done so.
