The form of the fourth

Who wouldn't be thrilled by the biblical account of the three Hebrews and their experience in "the burning fiery furnace"! Because they are allied to the one God and refuse to worship the king's golden image, they are thrown into the furnace, bound. This was surely the way to punish and be rid of them! Later the king sees them unbound and walking through the flames, free. And with them another—a fourth. The Bible tells us, "The form of the fourth is like the Son of God." Dan. 3:20, 25;

His experience of seeing this form changes the king's concept of government and power. The presence of the Christ—what can't it do! The king must have seen this Christ presence, made visible to him as "the form of the fourth," enfolding, protecting, and freeing those who live at one with God. Christly consciousness forever exhibits man's true identity as the expression of God's being.
