The Finger of God
Truth for Life
In Daniel 5, another pagan king, Belshazzar, reigned over Babylon, and in the midst of a lush banquet, he was confronted by the hand of God. Despite his knowledge of God’s power and dealings with Nebudchadnezzar, Belshazzar refused to humble himself before God’s throne, and it cost him his life. Alistair Begg reminds us that there is no refuge from God except the refuge found in God. Although all stand condemned in sin, Christ offers forgiveness and protection to those who humble themselves before His goodness and power.
