It's obvious if you choose not to be blind to it. Don't know where it came from A sign of impending disaster or danger. The origin


From the Bible, Daniel 5:5/6:

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.

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. when you understand that.explain "you can't see the forest for the trees".lol...just kidding.the link below should help with your question.. It comes from the bible. In the book of Daniel, the king of Babylon was entertaining his court. It was on the night he was to be killed by his enemy Cyrus, king of Persia. IAt that moment,” says the inspired account, “the fingers of a man’s hand came forth and were writing in front of the lampstand upon the plaster of the wall of the palace of the king, and the king was beholding the back of the hand that was writing.” (Daniel 5:5) What an awesome sight! A hand appeared out of nowhere, floating in the air near a well-lit section of the wall. Imagine the hush falling over the party as the guests turned to gape at it. The hand began to write a cryptic message upon the plaster. So ominous, so unforgettable, was this phenomenon that to this day people use the expression “the handwriting on the wall” to suggest a warning of imminent doom. The "WRITINGS ON THE WALL" were--MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN--MENE, MENE, meaning numbered, numbered. Repeated for the sake of emphasis--God has numbered your kingdom, and it is finished (v 25-26); TEKEL, meaning weighed; You are weighed in the balances and found wanting (v 25,27)UPHARSIN or PHARSIN is the plural of PERES meaning division-thy kingdom is split up and given to the Medes and Persians (v 25, 28)--The book of Daniel 5th chapter--it was supernaturally given, and supernaturally interpreted by Daniel--- in other words,--King, you done messed up now! (smile)--The king did not humble himself in his heart-exalted himself against God-desecrated sanctified vessels of the house of God-praised idol gods, and refused to glorify the true God who gives life to all (v 23 of ch. 5). It means that its as plain as the nose on your face The quotation, " The handwriting on the wall" is a Bible quotation that is located in the book of Daniel chapter 5. After reading this chapter we find that the only way to understand it is through a relationship with the one who sent it (God ) or with someone who is connected to God. As you notice from the study of the book of Daniel there were many great men that tried to discover the meaning. But, Daniel was the only one able to give the true meaning. If we look at the character of Daniel we will find that he is a man who is committed to his God and prayer. The true answer to this question and all questions lies within the heart of every individual. When a person develops a sincere relationship with God he will reveal the answers that are already lying dormant (within the individual) to the heart. It will be clear and it will seem as if the answer has always been known. The Bible states in Romans 8:10 that the word is nigh thee even in thy mouth that is the word of faith that we preach. That, if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth you shall be saved. The writing on the wall implies that there is a clear banner, and it is on every individual heart. It is the individuals job to look within to find the answers. i believe it alludes to ones fore sights or the lack there of ! it means, loud and clear which any one can understand and do not need any explanation
