Sunday Pulpit Series – Transformation: 10

Sunday Pulpit Series

Transformation: 10
Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

God promised to judge Babylon for its excessive cruelty. Jeremiah prophesied about the fall of Babylon.
Jeremiah 51:8 NKJV
“Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed. Wail for her! Take balm for her pain; Perhaps she may be healed.”

The rule of the Nebuchadnezzar dynasty would come to a sudden end.
God stirred up the anger of the Medes to bring judgment on Babylon.
Jeremiah 51:11 NKJV
“Make the arrows bright! Gather the shields! The Lord has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes. For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it, Because it is the vengeance of the Lord, The vengeance for His temple.”

God was going to take vengeance upon the Babylonians for desecrating His temple.
Belshazzar was a descendant of Nebuchadnezzar.
He was ruling Babylon when the 70 years of captivity was drawing to a close.
Daniel 5:1 NKJV
“Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his lords, and drank wine in the presence of the thousand.”

Belshazzar gave a sacrilegious order under the influence of alcohol.
Daniel 5:2 NKJV
“While he tasted the wine, Belshazzar gave the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple which had been in Jerusalem, that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them.”

He and his concubines and friends used God’s holy vessels for their drunken feasting.
Daniel 5:4 NKJV
“They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze and iron, wood and stone.”

Suddenly a hand appeared and wrote on the wall.
Daniel 5:5 NKJV
“In the same hour the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace;”

May every spirit of Babylon against you fall as you go to church.
