Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

God And The United States #3 of 3

April 17, 2008
An Alabama courthouse...a granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments...and a judge who believed they should stay there. The struggle over the public viewing of God's law to man led to Chief Justice Roy Moore being ousted from office: evidence that God is being systematically excluded from public life. Today: more about the judgment of God on America.

Somewhere, somehow, we got the idea that God's only desire for America is to bless her, no matter what her people do. We need to get real. God judges nations when they violate His commands. He judged His own nation Israel by using the armies of nearby pagan nations against it. Today: more details about God's purposes among the nations, and why we should not assume that if "you are OK, I am OK."

Somehow, many of us have the idea that God owes us His favor. After all, we are Americans, the defenders of democracy. As we run the race of life, let us ask ourselves if God owes us anything. After examining the evidence, we might have to conclude that what He owes us is His judgment. Today: we will consider what God thinks of the US of A.

The blessings of God are not constitutional rights. They are bestowed on people and nations that follows God's commands. God's judgment on nations takes many forms: natural disasters, the deprivation of personal freedoms, wars, and deafened ears toward God. Today: a look at two final forms of judgment that are very evident in America today.

When our children disobey, we as parents have many creative ways of punishing them to try to prevent future disobedience. And when God judges a nation, He also has many ways of doing it. As events seem to be careening out of control around us, let us take a moment to review the means God may use in judging even our nation in the days ahead.

The Bible gives us words of encouragement as well as words of warning. It is our obligation to understand and heed both. Few of us would make the wrath of God our first choice for a Bible study. Yet, God's prophets thundered words of His judgment to the people of their day. God's warnings to the nations have not changed. Have we? Today: a look at what God's wrath is all about.

The Old Testament prophets brought many messages of God's judgment on men and nations...messages we would rather not hear. Many of us would rather celebrate the positive than face up to the negative. We forget that the first public words of Jesus were "Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand." Today, a bottom-line analysis of what God's judgment of the nations means to you and me.

When you hear about all the sins for which God judges nations, you get the uncomfortable feeling that your nation might be next. Unprincipled expansion, arrogance and violence are sins one, two and three. America's guilt may be better described by sins four and five...indifference to God and the acceptance of witchcraft. Today: a hard look at the real prospect of God's judging hand in our day.

The Bible is a guidebook for living. In its pages we find what God wants each of us to do, and what He says not to do. The same holds true for nations. The Scriptures list at least seven sins for which God promises to hold nations accountable...sins that grow out of their leaders' desires for power and control. Today: the list grows longer.

Sometimes it seems that the bad guys keep winning. Terrorism and mayhem are everywhere. Some ask, "Is God still in control?" We need to understand that justice delayed is not justice denied. There will be a day of reckoning for both men and nations. Today: a look at how God judges the nations that violate His commands.

We have all seen bomb-laden terrorists waving their guns and shouting "death to America" on TV. How should we respond? Some cower in fear. Others brandish bigger weapons. But believers can have confidence that God is in charge even if another 9/11 happens. Defend the nation? You bet. Give in to fear? Not on your life.
