THE EFFECTS OVER THE KING’S ANXIETY
BY Henry Jaegers
Then king Belshazzar was greatly alarmed, his face grew even paler and his nobles were perplexed. (Daniel 5: 9)
Belshazzar failed to learn the lessons that Nebuchadnezzar had to learn the hard way: To look to the magicians and Babylonian wizards to find answers that were beyond their ability to understand. All that they could do was raise more questions to which they had no answers. Belshazzar’s countenance was changed and his fear and desperation turned to anger. Something had to be done but there was no one to turn to.
We see a similar incident taking place at the birth of Jesus. When Herod heard about another king being born, he became troubled (Jealous) and all Jerusalem with him. His anger affected everyone else around him. Imagine the perplexity and confusion that abounded as they were controlled by their fear of what the king might do.
There is a bright spot in all of this. For twenty three years Daniel had lived in relative obscurity and was almost forgotten until a crisis arose and memories began to activate. It was no accident that someone remembered Daniel. They also remembered something about the God whom he represented. God is still around when difficulties arise and His servants were available when He needed them.
We might wonder why men wait until they are in difficulty to call on the Lord. We can rejoice that there are His servants all around when we need them. It’s just a matter of remembering who they are and being humble enough to recognize our need and their ability to help.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Belshazzar failed to learn the lessons that Nebuchadnezzar had to learn the hard way: To look to the magicians and Babylonian wizards to find answers that were beyond their ability to understand. This line seems incomplete. However, another good lesson. Now,I have found that the wicked kings and people in our lives are not always glad that we are around, and after the crisis is over they forget about us. They do Jesus the same way though. Liked the comparison to Herod.
