The Hand Writing on the Wall

Fandango’s word prompt

Imminent! with True Story a YouTube movie I watched!

Because of the strange happenings in the entire world these days and my curious personality, I found myself watching an old Testament Bible story on YouTube about the book of Daniel.

The movie was interesting in many ways, but in particular, the story explains an incident. Daniel, the prophet, was summoned by King Belshazzar to interpret! This king had just defiled sacred objects meant for the One True God; the king dishonored religious cups at his pagan feast.

Imminently strange, mysterious writing appeared on the wall, the frightened king called his soothsayers et al. to interpret, but they could not. Daniel was finally called and told the king “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” and analyzes them for the king: “MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed … and found wanting;” and “PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” (Daniel 5;5-31)
Imminently that same night, the king was killed.

This is the origin of the phrase, “The writing on the wall” interesting, don’t you agree!
A snip of the movie below:

  1. Verse five says the king was so shocked to see the writing appear that “his knees smote one against the other.” And Daniel’s prophecy of the imminent coup didn’t help. I find it amazing how the enemy actually got into the city. When God’s hand is in it, the ousting doesn’t always take big guns. 🙂
