The Night Belshazzar Died

The Night Belshazzar Died…

The night when Belshazzar seen

God’s writing on the wall,

He did not know that soon

Babylon would FALL.

This king who thought he was so

awesome and great.”

Didn’t know that death soon

would be his fate.

Eat, drink and be merry”

was the motto of the day.

But God had something

else to say!

The days of endulging themselves

in wickedness and sin,

Was soon to be destroyed

by their enemies within.

This life which for long

you have enjoyed,

Shall one day perish

and be destroyed.

Allow the “writing of God”

to reach your heart’s door.

It is for you that Jesus died for!

Don’t allow the enemy

to destroy your soul.

For Jesus loves you more

than you’ll ever know!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
