Understanding the Writing on the Wall


In its modern usage, understanding the “writing on the wall” means to perceive danger or bad news ahead. For example, when a college football coach endures a losing season, the “writing on the wall” is often that his job is in jeopardy.

This common phrase originated from Daniel chapter 5, which is Sunday’s preaching passage. In the story, King Belshazzar sees a human hand appear out of nowhere and it starts writing on the wall of his palace. Understandably, he is terrified by the sight.

Come on Sunday as we consider why God sent this chilling message to the king, and how we can avoid facing a similar judgment upon our own lives.
