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.

We hear the cries, “Our government is out of control.” “What was once wrong is now okay, and what was right is now wrong.” In order to reach this point, people have had to believe some awful lies. In this message we’ll look at four of these lies, and what believing them leads to.

God had Babylon take Israel captive after Israel deceived itself into idolatry. He will not tolerate endless disobedience from His people. He did not then, and He will not today. The story is in the early chapters of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 2:13 says that Israel forsook God, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out broken cisterns for themselves which can hold no water. For this, God’s judgment fell. Have we in the modern church hewed out broken cisterns?

In the divided kingdom, Israel in the north had been carried into captivity by the Assyrians. In the south, the prophet Jeremiah told Judah of God’s coming judgment. Despite a clear warning, the people clung to their idols and did not repent. Does this sound familiar?

After long national disobedience, God judged Israel by having Babylon cart them off into captivity. They became a minority in a pagan land, just as Christians are fast becoming a minority in America. The parallels are crucial to understand.

Another year ends at the stroke of midnight. What does not end is God’s plan for us in the new year. Finding His will is a lifelong quest, and in seeking Him, the details of life come into focus.  When they do, we will know that we have found the right road.

Is God’s will elusive? Does He try to make it hard to find? As the new year dawns, what lies ahead in the plan of God? The best advice is to take one step at a time. As we are learning, God’s will is a series of small events that ultimately take us where He wants us to go.

A new year is like a seemingly blank parchment to us. What will happen is known only to God. Thus it only makes sense to allow God to order our steps in the uncertain days ahead, because no one can do it better.

On a pivotal day in Bethlehem, God sent his only Son to live among us, a day marked by a chorus of jubilant angels. Today we will discuss why those angels were rejoicing and why we can rejoice with them this Christmas. 
December 26, 2014
Angels are God’s messengers, and Luke tells us that angels were instrumental in making Christ’s birth known over the skies of Bethlehem. Royalty was coming into the world in a king who would live, die, and then rise again to return in glory.
