The Party

We find ourselves in chapter 5 of Daniel today. Thirty years has passed since King Neb blessed the Most High. He dies seven years after that proclamation. A new king comes on the scene and his name is King Belshazzar. It looks so much like Daniel's Babylonian name but don't let it trick you.

King Belshazzar loved a good party. He invited a thousand of his most important friends and got drunk. He profaned the holy things of God. He orders brought out all of the gold and silver goblets that had been stolen from the Israelites when they were taken into captivity. He wants to impress the party goers so they drink out of the holy things of God while praising all the little gods of gold, silver, bronze, iron, wood and stone. I am not sure we can comprehend the gall it took to do such a thing.

God will not be mocked without a response and in this case it is immediate. Tomorrow we will discover "the rest of the story"

Till then
In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
