Handwriting on the Wall (Cartoon)

Handwriting on the Wall (Cartoon)

King Belshazzar had a great
feast in his castle. He invited thousands of his lords to
come and drink wine with him. While Belshazzar was tasting the
wine, he commanded. Bring the golden and silver
vessels to us, so me and my princes and
wives might drink from them. These golden vessels had been
taken from God’s temple by Belshazzar’s
father, Nebuchadnezzar. The king and his lords drank
wine from these holy vessels while praising the false gods of
gold, silver, brass, iron, wood, and stone. In the same hour, fingers of a
man’s hand appeared before the guest of the feast and began to
write on the wall. And when the king saw it, he was
troubled and his knees begin to shake. Astrologers… chaldeans…
soothsayers… Who ever reads this writing and
shows me the interpretation, shall be clothed in scarlet, and have
a chain of gold around their neck, and will be the third ruler in the kingdom. All the king’s wise men came to
try and read the writing on the wall, but none could make any
sence of the writing. This troubled the king even more. Now the queen heard how troubled
the king was, and came into the banquet house and told him. Let not your thoughts trouble you. There is a man in your kingdom who
has the spirit of the holy gods. In the days of your father, light and understanding
and wisdom was found in him. So the king brought Daniel in
before him and said. Are thou Daniel? Of the children
to the captivity of Judad, whom the king my father
brought out of Jewry? I have heard that the spirits
of the gods are in you. And that the light of understanding
and excellent wisdom is found in you. Now the wise men and astrologers
and been brought before me, but they could not read and
interpretate this writing. But I hear you can make
interpretations and dissovle doubts. If you can read the writing
and tell me what it means, then I will clothe you with scarlet and
have a chain of gold put around you neck, and you shall be the
third ruler of the kingdom. Keep your gifts and give them
to someone else. I will read the writing on the wall
and make known the interpretation. The most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar your
father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honor: And for the majesty that he
gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled
and feared before him: whoever he wanted slew, he slew; and whoever
he wanted kept alive, he keep alive; But when his heart was lifted up,
and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne,
and they took his glory from him: And he was driven from
the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts till
he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he
appointeth over it whomsoever he will. And you, his son, have not
humbled your heart. But have lifted up yourself
against the Lord of heaven; and brought the vessels of the Lord’s
house, and have drunk wine from them; and praised the gods of silver, gold,
brass, iron, wood, and stone, but the one true God in whose hand
you are, have you not glorified: This is why he sent the
hand to write on the wall. It says, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin.” Mene means God has numbered
your kingdom, and finished it. Tekel means You are weighed in the
balances, and are found wanting. Peres means your kingdom is divided,
and given to the Medes and Persians. Then King Belshazzar did as
he said he would, and clothed Daniel with scarlet and
put a chain of gold around his neck, and make a proclamation that he should
be the third ruler in the kingdom. That night, Darius the Median
took over the kingdom, and slained King Belshazzar,
just as Daniel had said. Proverbs 20:11 says, “Even a
child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure,
and whether it be right.” King Belshazzar saw his father be taken
from his thrown for not obeying God but he follow in the
way of his father. He continued to praise faults gods and
used the holy vessels for the temple to drink wine so God
removed him from power. Subtitles by:
