Lost in a House of Mirrors Part 1

June 3, 2013

Why do good people often act in such selfish, destructive and evil ways? This series helps us face the truth about ourselves and then introduces us to the marvelous grace and mercy of God. Here we see our self-deceptions, our unwillingness to see our selfishness and our uncanny ability to deny how we are perceived by others and by God. Here is hope for those who have denied their deep need for God’s intervention and grace.

But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment? With 700,000 copies in print, this bestselling work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.

All of this life is a preparation for the one to come. For the believer, this finite life will give way to an eternal one, and what God has prepared for those who have trusted Christ is beyond imagination. Not only will sorrows and pain cease, but we’ll experience “joy inexpressible and full of glory.” This message gives us a last look at perhaps the most important part of the invisible world: a place called heaven.

Hollywood depicts heaven as pearly gates, clouds, harps, and wings everywhere, all on streets of gold. The impression is one of a resort, where you can have a good time. But the Bible’s picture of heaven is much richer. Here, the people of God will worship the One most worthy to be worshipped, and enjoy His presence forever.

There are many palaces around the world that have ornate throne rooms for their royalty. Revelation 4 gives us a look into God’s throne room and what a room it is! The symbolic language can only give us a hint of the majesty of that most holy place—the place in the invisible world we most want to see.

We can’t see the life to come as clearly as we see what’s around us. But the Bible does give some tantalizing views of what’s ahead for a child of God. Once we have a grasp of the wonders that await us, making it through this life gets a lot easier. In today’s message, we peer across the great divide into the ultimate destiny for all who trust Christ.

An angel declared that Jesus would “save His people from their sins.” Since we can’t save ourselves, that’s really good news. If God didn’t reach out to us, we’d never find Him on our own. In Zechariah 3, the angel of the Lord spoke of clean garments for the high priest, foreshadowing the robe of Christ’s righteousness that admits us into heaven.

One of Satan’s favorite tactics is to whisper to Christians, “See, you sinned! You’re not worthy to get into heaven!” The truth Satan hides when he does this is that believers don’t stand on their own records. They stand on the merits of Jesus. This allows us to deal with the guilt that often paralyzes us. Knowing our place in Christ means we can tell Satan to get lost.

When angels appear in the Bible, it’s often to bring a message from God. An angel told Mary that she would bear the Christ child. Angels spoke in the Old Testament as well. In today’s message, we’ll look at the crucial message that was brought by an angel in Zechariah 3.

A hymn-writer penned these words: “…clothed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.” The Bible tells us that when we become believers in Christ, we’re given new spiritual clothing. The righteousness of Jesus is wrapped around us, making us worthy to stand before a holy God. In today’s message, we’ll see an Old Testament preview of this wonderful truth.

Just because something is invisible doesn’t mean it’s not there. The air we breathe is invisible, and it’s real. Angels are normally invisible as they do God’s work on behalf of the redeemed. But sometimes, God lets us see them, as when Elisha confronted an enemy king’s men. On today’s message, we’ll learn more about angels: the work they do, and what it means as we live in the visible world.

Scientists theorize that there are many dimensions of time and space, and that we on Earth are limited to just one of them. They say, we could see a parallel universe right next to our own if only we could adjust our “sensors” for them. It’s similar in the world of the spirit. In a dimension we can’t normally see is the army of God ready to serve at a moment’s notice.
