Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

January 1, 2015

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.
December 25, 2014
Angels had a joyous task over 2,000 years ago, announcing the good news of the Savior’s birth. The skies over Bethlehem were ablaze with light as poor shepherds cowered in fear.
December 24, 2014
God’s angels do His bidding, protect His children, and fight demonic forces in unseen places. The angels always point us to God Himself. They know what we need to know:  that God is seated on the throne of His glory. 
December 23, 2014
Many people confuse angelic visitations with demonic ones. Today’s program will help you understand the difference, a difference that is more crucial than ever, as more and more people are being deceived when they try to communicate with angels.
December 22, 2014
Believers who know the Bible understand the difference between God’s angels and Satan’s fallen angels, who seek to deceive us any way they can. Today, we continue a study of angels, and we will move from what they do to what they know. 
December 19, 2014
The media tells us that angels come to us in disguise to surprise us with wonderful experiences. But these “surprises” often actually come from fallen angels, or demons.  The job of angels is to carry out God’s orders and minister to God’s people.
