The story of Jehovah's Witnesses in Germany standing up to Hitler cannot help but remind us of the three young Hebrews in Babylon who refused to bow before Nebuchadnezzar's golden image. It is the exact same issue repeated over and over. For example, the original Christians were put in the arenas to face literal ferocious lions and their only hope of escape was to take a pinch of incense and sprinkle it on the conveniently placed altar as a sacrifice to Caesar. The reason things never change is because what is being played out upon the earth is merely a reflection of the great universal issues between Jehovah and Satan. Although most of Jehovah's Witnesses alive today have never had to stand before the lion, the day is coming. The really good news is the test that is coming upon the world is going to be the culmination of the whole shebang. This time Satan and his beast are going down. And those who come off victorious will have a reward so wonderful it is almost unbelievable!
