    Though I walk in the middle of trouble, you will revive me. You will stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies. Your right hand will save me. Yahweh will fulfill that which concerns me; your loving kindness, Yahweh, endures forever. Don't forsake the works of your own hands. Psalm 138:7 ...

    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

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, prospered, and was promoted 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.

    Note: Happy Sunday! For those who missed our various announcements, we will not be having our weekly RHM Live service this weekend, as we are taking some time to celebrate Dion's birthday :). You are more than welcome to fellowship in the chatroom though! Lord willing, we will continue with our weekly Bible Study next week.
