As I was meditating upon The LORD, I could still hear The LORD speaking that the judgment of God is coming, unless repentance is done!
God began again speaking to me regarding the spirit of pride and how it can have a profound affect upon the lives of the people whose lives it has allowed to take, and take root in it.
As we all who are Bible scholars know, King Belshazzar, came from much royalty and who came from a bloodline of Kings in his family, also had problems with pride.
He allowed this particular spirit to cause him to disrespect the things of God; as well as the God of heaven.
You see, one night he got so lifted up in pride that he took the golden vessels that his father had brought from Jerusalem, whose which was dedicated to the LORD God Almighty and he began to have a party and to drink wine from them.
But as soon as he did, he released and unleashed the wrath of God upon himself with a Holy vengeance that would lead to his very demise!
Belshazzar became so distraught, when all of a sudden, he saw something out of the unusual happening. He saw fingers and a hand that began to write something on the wall – and he knew it had meaning!
He was so troubled, that he began to shake, tremble and to seek counsel for what he had seen, like many of us do when we see a vision, imprint or have a dream out of the usual!
But, to no avail. He couldn’t find an interpreter in his kingdom to give him an understanding as to what he had, seen until he found Daniel.
As Daniel began to read the writing it said, “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. And, Daniel said that this is the interpretation of the thing oh King:
MENE ; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
PERES ; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians,” (Daniel 5:24-28 KJV).
The King could not believe, like a lot of people, that The KING of kings and The LORD of Lords, that this God in heaven, could actually reach down from Heaven to bring judgment to his kingdom, even though God had brought it upon his ancestors before him!
You see, pride foolishly blinds one into thinking that one is better than everyone else, and it makes one think they are untouchable, when in fact none of us are out of the reach of God!
As I read this story and pondered upon it, God begin to speak heavily unto me letting me know that the king’s heart is in His hands, and he can turn it whatsoever way He will!
God let me know that He is a Great God and no man, no matter how high or great they are, is untouchable or unreachable when they touch the Holy vessels and the things of God!
You see, these vessels had been dedicated to the House of God and they were only to be used for God’s Glory!
But, King Belshazzar thought differently I guess. He felt he was an exception to the rule!
God had to reveal and to show His glory to King Belshazzar, because his pride had reached high into the Heavens and obviously, like many of us who have refused to repent and to humble ourselves, so when that happens, if we refuse to do it ourselves ,that is when the God of Elohim will do it for us!
People, I’m telling you, that you don’t want that to happen to you!
Yes God loves us, but when you put yourself above God and challenge His Word, you are asking to be demoted and replaced, and if that is not enough, for your own demise to come!
God absolutely hates pride! Just ask Lucifer?
People, it’s time to get on your face and to ask God to remove whatever is hindering and causing you to rebel against Him in this season!
See Daniel 4 – 5.
