    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

The Writing On The Wall

  • In the same hour, the fingers of a man's hand came out and wrote near the lamp stand on the plaster of the wall of the king's palace. The king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king's face was changed in him, and his thoughts troubled him; and the joints of his thighs were loosened, and his knees struck one against another. Daniel 5:5 WEB

    Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, threw a huge party for a thousand of his lords. He had the gold and silver vessels that were taken from the temple in Jerusalem by his father, Nebuchadnezzar, brought out so they could all drink from them. As they did, a hand appeared in the air and wrote a prophecy on the wall in a cryptic language. The king panicked and called all the wise men together to read it, but they could not.

    Then Daniel the Jewish exile was summoned, and he interpreted the writing. The writing meant: 'God has counted your kingdom and brought it to an end. You have been weighed on the scales, and found wanting. Your kingdom has been divided and given to the Medes and Persians.' The city was overrun that night and the king of the party was killed. Daniel lived and prospered under the new leadership.

    There were two men in this story. There was a godless king who seemingly had everything, but lost it in a moment. The other was an exile who faithfully served God, and continued to prosper in all that he did, even when the kingdom changed hands.

    Seek God now. Many will try and wait until the very last minute, but in this king's story, he was too late. God is long suffering, but there came a time when He shut the door of the ark Himself (Genesis 7:16). There will again be a time when the door will be shut (Matthew 25:10). Don't wait until the writing is on the wall to begin a relationship with God. Choose Him now for we are all one heartbeat from meeting Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your mercy and ask that You forgive me of the things that I have done wrong in my life. Wash me and I will be clean. Set me free and I will be free indeed. I choose You. Come into my heart and guide me from this day forth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

God is always waiting for his children to come to him and lean on him and know that he will love them with every breath of his being.  Jesus, his Son, is the true King of King's and he will always be out comforter, protector but most of all he will love us to infinity.  Jesus my best friend!!  Amen!!

Everyday on the news talks about seeking monetary gains in stock market, businesses and other get rich schemes. Money nowaday seems to be a God for many until the very last minute of their lives, but like in this king's story, it will be too late.
