I only know of one story where the Finger of God wrote upon a wall......in the Book of Daniel....:unsure:

Daniel 5:22-28 New King James Version (NKJV)
22 “But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this.
23 And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified.
24 Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written.


25 “And this is the inscription that was written:

MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it;
27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting;
28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”
yes, this was the simple verse I was looking at...

Daniel 5:5 (KJV) 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.

Your turn.:coffee:

(Jesus did some fingerpainting Himself, but not on a wall.)

Sounds like you are spying Jesus pawning His goods on the Laodiceans.
Correct, @crossnote! Excellent! :love:(y)

Revelation 3:18 New King James Version (NKJV)
18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

Your turn! :love:(y)

Hmm........ I’m guessing the answer is somewhere in Hebrews 1.......I shall go take a look to see if I find it! :unsure::giggle:(y)
Found it! Yay!!! :love:(y)

Not in Hebrews 1 but, in Hebrews 11:


Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
