The Writing’s on the Wall
Bible Text: Daniel 5:1-31 | Speaker: Dave Tate | Series: Daniel: Cultures on Collision
Daniel 4 was about the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, his story of how he became prideful and how God humbled him. There’s a 23 year gap between chapter 3 and 4, but there’s a similar theme: God humbling the Babylonian king. But this time, his name is Belshazzar, and this time, it does not end well. Once again, God uses Daniel to speak truth to power and this king should have seen it coming. He should have seen the writing on the wall, before he saw writing on the wall.
