WEIGHED IN THE BALANCES!
BELSHAZZAR THOUGHT THAT BECAUSE HE WAS A MIGHTY KING, HE COULD BREAK MY LAWS WITH IMPUNITY. I SET BEFORE HIM THE EXAMPLE OF HIS FATHER, NEBUCHADNEZZAR, WHO I HAD FORCED TO EAT GRASS WITH THE CATTLE UNTIL HE ACKNOWLEDGED ME AS RULER OVER THE KINGDOM OF MEN, AND TO AGREE THAT I ALONE APPOINT OVER “MY KINGDOM” WHOM I WILL. BELSHAZZAR SAW THAT MY RULER SHIP FAR EXCEEDS THAT OF A FLESHLY KING, AND YET HE THOUGHT HE WAS INVINCIBLE AND IMPERVIOUS TO MY OMNIPOTENCE. FILLED WITH PRIDE, HE HAD AN UNTEACHABLE SPIRIT. HIS CUP OF SIN WAS FULL AND RUNNING OVER AND IT WAS TIME FOR HIM TO BE WEIGHED IN THE BALANCES. DAN 5:27 “Tekel: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; DAN 5:30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain. I DIVIDED HIS KINGDOM AND GAVE IT TO THE MEDES AND PERSIANS. HIS THINKING WAS SO EXALTED AND FULL OF SELF THAT HE NEVER CONSIDERED THAT HE WAS SOON TO BE JUDGED. HE MADE NO EFFORT TO BE OBEDIENT OR REVERENCE ME AS RULER OVER ALL MEN EVEN THOUGH I MADE PLAIN TO HIM, “THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.” JUDGMENT AND DEATH WERE NEAR TO HIM AND HE DID NOT PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBILITY. I CAN ONLY WARN EVERYONE TO BE PREPARED TO STAND BEFORE ME, BUT THEY MUST CHOOSE WHOM THEY WILL SERVE AND THE SPIRIT THAT WILL FILL THEIR BEING. MAT 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” BELSHAZZAR DID NOT LEARN FROM HIS FATHER’S MISTAKES AND HE IGNORED MY LAWS OF LIFE AND DEATH. HEB 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, ROM 14:11 For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” 12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. THE PERSON WHO THINKS THEY WILL ESCAPE MY JUDGMENT HAS DECEIVED HIMSELF. THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN MADE RIGHTEOUS WILL STAND BEFORE THE “JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST,” AND THE WICKED WILL ALL MEET AT THE “GREAT WHITE THRONE OF JUDGMENT.” YOU ARE LIVING IN AN HOUR WHEN THE CUP OF WICKEDNESS IS FULL AND RUNNING OVER. JUDGMENT IS DRAWING NEAR! MATTHEW 24:12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” I HAVE NOT COME TO BRING PEACE, BUT A SWORD. MAT 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” IT IS TIME FOR JUDGMENT TO BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF THE LORD! THE CHILDREN OF GOD MUST BE SEPARATED FROM WICKEDNESS TO FULFILL THE DIVINE CALL ON THEIR LIVES. I AM PREPARING MY PEOPLE TO STAND AS THE “LIGHT OF THE WORLD” IN THE MIDST OF THE GROSS DARKNESS THAT WILL SOON COVER THE WORLD. WHAT YOU SEE NOW IS A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME.
BEFORE THE EYES OF MY CHILDREN, I WILL PEEL THE APPLE AND REVEAL THE ROTTENNESS AT THE CORE. I WILL UNCOVER THE WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING. THE FALSE SHEPHERDS WILL RUN IN SHAME BEFORE MY ANGER. YEA, I WILL REVEAL THE HIDDEN EVIL AND I WILL PURGE AND MAKE IT MANIFEST THAT I HATE SIN AND WILL BRING INTO JUDGMENT THOSE WHO ARE NOT WALKING UPRIGHTLY BEFORE ME. I AM NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSONS. 1JO 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.
I MUST PURIFY MY BODY OF BELIEVERS SO THEIR LIGHT IS NOT SNUFFED OUT BY SIN! SIN IN YOUR LIFE WILL NULLIFY YOUR POWER AND SATAN KNOWS EXACTLY THE AMOUNT OF POWER THAT IS IN YOU. EPH 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. HE (SATAN) ALSO KNOWS IF YOU HAVE EXISTING SIN WHICH ALLOWS HIM TO COME AND ROB AND DECEIVE YOU. SAY “NO” TO SIN AND “YES” TO RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH THE POWER OF THE INDWELLING CHRIST. AS CHILDREN OF GOD, I HAVE WRITTEN MY LAWS UPON YOUR HEARTS. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO KNOW MY LAWS; THOSE WHO KEEP MY LAWS WILL BE EXEMPTED FROM SATAN’S TOTAL CONTROL. I PROTECT MY OWN AND WILL NOT LET THE ROBBER IN. ROM 2:13 for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU ARE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS MY SPIRIT INVOKES IN YOU. WHEN YOU WALK IN GUILT AND CONDEMNATION, YOU ARE ROBBING YOUR SOUL AND SPIRIT OF MY POWER. REPENT, BE RENEWED, AND EMPOWERED TO FIGHT THE BATTLE FOR GOOD IN YOUR LIFE AND IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO FIGHT THE BATTLE OVER THE SIN IN YOUR LIFE, YOU CANNOT OVERCOME THE SIN IN THE WORLD. YOU MUST BE IN “RIGHT STANDING” WITH ME TO WALK IN MY OVERCOMING POWER. IF YOU AREN’T WAGING THE BATTLE OF SIN IN YOUR OWN LIFE, YOU WILL BE OVERPOWERED.
THERE ARE BRIARS AND THORNS UPON YOUR PATH THAT CAN BE REMOVED BY INVOKING THE DOMINION I HAVE GIVEN YOU OVER SIN. IF YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO WALK IN MY PERFECT WILL, THEN YOU ARE ROBBING YOURSELF OF DIVINE PROTECTION, GUIDANCE, AND POWER TO OVERCOME. FREEDOM FROM SIN IS YOUR CHOICE! ROM 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, ROM 8:4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirt.
SCOFF YOU SCOFFERS! YOU ARE NEXT! IF THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SCARCELY BE SAVED WHAT WILL BE THE END OF THE WICKED? 1PE 4:18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?” HEB 6:7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; 8 but if it bears thorns and briars, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned. MY CHILDREN, I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. AT THE CROSS I TRIUMPHED OVER DEATH AND HELL AND GAVE MY CHILDREN THE KEYS OF MY KINGDOM. YOU RECEIVED POWER AFTER THE HOLY GHOST CAME UPON YOU. I TOLD YOU THAT YOU ARE GREATER THAN SATAN IF YOU WALK IN MY SPIRIT. 1JO 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. I GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO TAKE DOMINION OVER SATAN AND HIS WORKS. MAT 16:19 “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” MAR 16:17 “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” WHEN YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS AND WALK IN MY SPIRIT, YOU ARE UNDER DIVINE PROTECTION. 1JO 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. 10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.
IF THERE EVER WAS AN HOUR WHEN YOU NEED TO CLING TO MY SPIRIT IT IS NOW! THE DEVIL IS WALKING ABOUT AS A ROARING LION SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR! 1JO 5:18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
My prayer: Dearest Lord and Savior, help me to walk at all times under Your divine protection. I want to be perfect as You are perfect. Quicken Your word to my heart and show me anything in my life that displeases You. Shine Your light on the besetting sins in my life and in my nature. Make me righteous as You are righteous. I want to live to “be a light in the world and bring glory to Your name.” Amen.
In Christ’s love, Anita
