God's Judgment of the Nations, Part 4 of 4

April 25, 2012
The Old Testament prophets brought many messages of God’s judgment on both men and nations — messages we would not like to 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.” Tune in today for a bottom-line analysis of what God’s judgment on the nations means.

We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

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 national 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 we will take a look at the real prospect of God’s present day hand of judgement.

The Bible is a guidebook for living. In its pages we find what God wants us to do and what not to do. The same holds true for the 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.

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 we will look at how God judges the nations who 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. Should we defend the nation? You bet. Should we give in to fear? Not on your life.

Some realities do not fit in finite minds. Men do what they choose. Yet God directs those choices to suit His purposes. As we wrestle with the mystery of God’s hidden will, we must acknowledge His sovereign control of history. Sometimes He uses the bad guys to judge the good guys. Our task is to trust His purposes are right, no matter what.

Some people think that random chance dictates what happens on planet earth. Either God is not involved or He is not interested. Believers running the race of life have a different perspective. The Bible reveals God as more than just interested in the human condition. He is the One who actively determines the fate of the nations. Today we will take a look at how God superintends history.

Years ago, Alex Haley’s Roots helped us understand the origins of the slave trade. Origins are very important. That is why God recorded the beginnings of human history in the book of Genesis. Here we find out where we came from as members of the nations of the world. Today we will do a wrap-up on how everyone can trace their roots back to the sons of Noah.

There are literally thousands of languages spoken here on planet earth. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself where they all came from? At the very beginning, God saw to it that people would be divided into many geographical and ethnic groups. To achieve this, He caused the language of His people to divide.

With hundreds of nations and billions of people, the earth of 2012 is a seething cauldron of unrest, warfare, and change. As things seem to be slipping out of control, we must remember that the God who created the nations is not asleep at the switch. He is moving the nations into position for the climax of this present age. Today we begin a series that outlines some of His purposes.

Although the church celebrates the resurrection of Jesus every year, in one sense it celebrates that great event every week. On the first day of the week His disciples found their crucified Lord very much alive. Every Sunday since, God’s people have gathered to mark the raising of Jesus from the dead. He is indeed the Victor over the grave. Since we are His followers, we too shall have victory.
