Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

Can you read the writing on the wall?

Daniel 5:25-28

25 “And this is the inscription that was written: MENE, MENE, TEKEL UPHARSIN 26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”[

These ancient words were not understandable to the people of the day; but they were understood by Daniel – the man of God.

Events are happening today like unthinkable supreme court rulings, volatility in various financial markets, signs in the heavens and weather phenomenon.

The secular mind is not able to interpret as a whole the events of our day. The meaning of Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin is that God had numbered the Kingdom of Belshazzar and brought it to an end. This king was weighed by God and found wanting.

As Daniel could in days of old, the people of God can read the present writing on the wall. The days are numbered for the earthly kingdoms.

Sin, greed, lust, idolatry, pride, etc. are being codified into law and will ultimately bring judgment. God is giving signs in the heavens. The specific events that will follow are debatable but the crux of what is happening is not. Rampant sin destroys societies. This is happening in Europe, the middle east, the USA and elsewhere.

Sin is not the only thing on the rise. The Bible says, “where sin abounds, grace does much more abound”. Today, worldwide, there are more evangelistic church planting and discipleship efforts than ever before. Certain ministries are laser focused on reaching the masses. At Word of Life Church God has given us an assignment called Vision 2020. In this vision we are financing gospel crusades worldwide as well as reaching people locally. We are also duplicating our efforts in ourself in many places around the world.

Currently there are 70 Word of Life Churches. Each of them pursuing the Vision 2020 mandate. Our goal is to win 20 million souls for Christ and to start a spark of Christian unity that will prayerfully take off across our land.

Stay tuned. Jesus will not be undone by the decline of the kingdoms of this world.  Stay alert. The time is short.

Unity For the Sake of Souls,

Pastor Rob
