Here is another Belshazzar!

 

Daniel 5: 2”When Belshazzar tasted the wine, he gave orders to bring the gold and silver vessels which Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them.”

 

The town of Babylon was located along the Euphrates River in present-day Iraq, river Euphrates was their fortitude!  They had twenty years provision in the city, now you understand why king Belshazzar was soooo proud! Babylon was a wealthy kingdom and the city was considered impregnable to attack! The walls were 56 miles long, 80 feet thick, and 320 feet high. There was no way that any foreign power was going to take their city, this is how exactly people live today!

 

BOOZE PARTY: This guy was so confident of his ‘savings and of Euphrates river’ that he threw a booze party for thousands of his officers and men. He further  ordered “to bring the gold and silver vessels which Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them.” How dare!  Not over, “They drank the wine and praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.”  This fellow did not use the vessels from the temple of his idols but took the Lord’s vessels and used it for his booze party.

As I read this, I am reminded of the highly educated, posh, high salaried professionals who do not have time for God because they have perks, petrol allowance, car allowance, dinner allowance, Leave travel allowance, medical allowance and what not! They work on Sundays and have no time for God and church, the money thus earned is spent on overseas vacation, weekend bash, swanky cars, clubs, trendy, branded clothes and shoes.  I don’t find any difference between the above group  and the wicked king Belshazzar!

I was inside a church on a Sunday, as a guest speaker when the Sunday class teacher was honored and given awards.  Later her son came to pick her up, he did not attend church though, when I entered his car, I could see it full of sea sand.  Since it was weekend, he had partied the previous day, skipped church and had come to pick up his mom from church. How dare!!!  As I sat there in the back seat, oblivious to whoever sat there, he was playing the music loud and making body movements as he drove.  He is another Belshazzar, son of a Sunday class teacher who lived a hooligan life!  There are many so called Christians born in Christian homes but live like wicked king – Belshazzar.  Anybody want to throw stones at me?

Reckless disregard for the word of God, Church and the pastor.  These Belshazzars’ walk in late to church without Bibles because they are confident of their “Euphrates River” – one day it would dry up, be warned today! Second wave of COVID 19 is on its way…. COVID 19 is the writing on the wall for the world! Game is not over, God is waiting for repentance!
