Belshazzar's Feast

Daniel 5:1-31 (ID: 1645)

King Nebuchadnezzar’s successor Belshazzar didn’t honor the one true God, but instead worshiped many gods. When the new king held a feast to honor these gods and his own greatness, he didn’t anticipate the coming collapse of his kingdom. God, however, foretold of this doom, writing an inscription that only Daniel could interpret on the palace wall. Alistair Begg explains how this memorable moment shows us that not honoring the true God is an indication of pride—and pride can lead to our own demise.
