The Big God has the Last Word, March 3-9

Daniel 5

Message Outline

Wild party – drinking wine
Terror – fingers writing

The Queen endorses and The King inquires

Daniel confronts Shaz – you messed up badly
Learn from Neb

Five-fold failure by Shaz
Did not humble himself
Set himself up against the Lord
Drank wine from temple goblets
Praised the gods of silver and gold
Did not honor the God who holds his life in His hands

Daniel interprets the words – you are doomed
They come true
