The Writing on the Wall – God Warns the World

Watching and praying are the two positions the Lord calls us to be in. Prayer is the part of God’s armor that takes us directly to Him for our defense and victory, making sure that the mind will not fall into the temptation of fear and doubt. This is not a time for celebration, but a time for mourning before our God for ours and the nation’s sins. The Prophet Joel in one of his prophecies called the people to repentance saying, Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in love-kindness… (Joel 2:12-13).  The Bible says, a contrite heart God will not forsake. King David uttered these words in Psalm 51:17b:  My sacrifice to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, such O God, You will not despise (Ps. 51:17b). Nineveh repented, when they saw the warning “on the wall” and God spared them. He is ever so longsuffering, but when His righteousness and holiness can no longer look at the sins of men, then His judgments will act against them. In our days, we do not have to look far to perceive the sinful conditions of the world everywhere we go. As it was in the days of Noah… so it is today.

For Belshazzar, it was much too late to overturn the sentence against him. His days came to an end without delay. His wicked deeds compelled God’s judgment upon him. An ungodly government will for certain bring a nation to fall into the hands of a righteous God. We saw this happening in King David’s day, when he committed the sin of numbering Israel and Judah. Seventy thousand men of his subjects died that time from the pestilence God sent their way, as a result of King David’s sin. Much can be said about the wickedness of today’s governments of this entire world. It has been proven to be a sign to all with understanding, that God’s judgment is at hand; few perceive and take to heart what they see in the way of the warning on the wall. The day will come however, when there will be no more time to live as if nothing was going on. Then the cry for help will not be heard and justice will be served.

The writing on the wall has been going on for a while. Only now, has the world perceived in the way of seeing, but not yet understanding the meaning of all that is happening. Their minds are clouded with lies and fear, for they reject the very source of truth-YAHSHUA, the Savior of the world. The world is headed for destruction with no way of return, unless, repentance takes the heart of men.  God desires that no one should perish, reason why He gives chances and time for each one of us to turn around. A warning establishes a point in time and space when we must stop to consider and act upon it, not to suffer the consequences. Today’s times are unprecedent times; the world has made its turn and it will never be the same again, when truth stood and freedom was celebrated in everything we did; when peace radiated in a smile of a little child and their parents. The warning has been established that things will never be the same and we have better to pay attention to it.

The reality of end times is here. It is not for another day, another year far in the future, it is here. There is consolation only if you have accepted the Lord as your Savior and your Lord. The Bible says that there is now no more condemnation for all those who are justified by God through His Son’s reconciliation of men to God, in His death through crucifixion, when He received the curse that due us. There is for us peace in the midst of fear and turmoil; hope through faith that keeps us above the waters of circumstances when all seems hopeless. There is joy in the promise of our salvation and deliverance of all evil coming to this earth. Search your heart and ask the question, What is life worth living for, when there is no hope for the future, but doom and gloom in the place called hell?  This too is reality, my friend; this too is reality. But reality is also the fact that GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON, SO THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE (John 3:16).Believein the Lord YAHSHUA the Messiah and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31a).  You too will experience God’s peace and joy in the midst of chaos; nothing will take you away from Him. It is a promise to live for.
