Ezekiel 5:1 (b) Here we see how GOD notices the smallest person and the smallest sin. He is interested in every detail of life and knows how important each movement is, whether right or wrong.

Daniel 5:27 (b) This represents GOD's judgment in Heaven wherein He weighed the life of the king on one side of the scales, and the just demands of the law on the other side.

We must have the imputed righteousness and righteous life which GOD gives to those who belong to JESUS CHRIST by faith.

Revelation 6:5 (b) Here is a symbol of GOD's careful adjustment of earthly supplies to man's needs. In this particular case the supply was greatly cut down as a punishment on the wicked people.
