The Handwriting on the Wall for Babylon
In a political uncertainty world, it is easy to become frustrated and upset when life is not going our way. These occurrences happen to everyone, including King Belshazzar, who has witnessed a terrifying image such as human handwriting on the wall that spells his kingdom's end. Only Daniel can interpret what God has written. In the end, Belshazzar idolatry and pride cuts short his kingdom reign. The only certainty God's people can have is Jesus is control of every circumstance, even the fall, and rise of earthly kingdoms. We learn from Belshazzar to turn away from idolatry and worship the only king who lives forever.
