Leland Maples runs the LOOP’s Ministries (Loved Ones Of Prisoners) and leads a Thursday night bible study held in the Rec Room at Life Change Baptist Church in Odessa Texas. The Rec Room message on Thursday, February 26, 2015 was entitled “The Writing on the Wall” and was given by Leland. Special music was by Charles Reynolds.
The message was based on the scripture from Daniel 5:1-6 KJV
- Pride Goes Before a Fall – Proverbs 16:16
- A Party Can End in Death – Hebrews 9:27
- Every Man Will Be Weighed in God’s Balance – Romans 6:23
Scripture from the lesson:
Daniel 5:1-6 KJV
1 Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand. 2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein. 3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them. 4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone. 5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king’s palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. 6 Then the king’s countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.
16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
