Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

God's Providence Among The Nations #1 of 3

April 1, 2008
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. That is because the Bible reveals God as more than just interested in the human condition. He is the One Who actively determines the fates of nations. Today: a look at how God superintends what we call history.

Years ago, Alex Haley's "Roots" helped us understand the origins of the slave trade. And origins are 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: a wrap-up on how everybody 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. And a real quick way of doing this was to supernaturally cause people to need lots of translators.

Hundreds of nations...billions of people. The earth of 2008 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.

When you visit Israel, it is possible to stand on the very mount from which Jesus Christ ascended to His father in heaven. Prophecies foretell His return to that very Mount of Olives one day to set up His kingdom...a kingdom whose capital will be Jerusalem. Meanwhile, those who believe in Him are charged to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Today: how Jesus is ruling in heaven even now.

For some 40 days the resurrected Jesus walked the roads of Israel, having fellowship with His beloved disciples. But then the time came for Him to make a journey into the sky. Angels were in attendance as Jesus rose into the air until the clouds took Him out of His companions' sight. Today: more about what it means for Jesus to be with His Father in heaven.

The Mount of Olives sight was unforgettable: the disciples saw Jesus rise into the sky until clouds blocked their view. The ascension of Jesus into heaven marked the end of His earthly ministry and the beginning of a new ministry: interceding for His people at God's right hand. Today, we are going to find out what our victorious Savior's role is as He awaits His return to earth.

Live InterviewLots of people admire Jesus...and they admire many other gurus. They see Jesus as one road to God, but not the only one. Jesus said He was the way - the only way to God. Either this is true or it is not. Today, pop culture tells us that everyone can find their own way to the divine and so Jesus is placed on a shelf with many other pathways to eternity. Today another lie is debunked.

Live InterviewMany people have skeletons in their closets: carefully hidden secrets no one can ever know, lest their reputations be ruined. Some today are saying that Jesus has a skeleton in His closet: that He had a human father and was not virgin-born as the Bible teaches. Those who want to minimize the New Testament Jesus spread this lie to make Jesus just natural, not supernatural. Why does it matter?

Live InterviewIf the claims of Christ are true, then there is no other way to eternal life than through His sacrifice and salvation from sin. Many today cannot tolerate the exclusivity of Jesus' claims. They want to refashion Him as just another man...a unique man, to be sure, but just a man. They have decided to edit the New Testament to remove supernatural references and help us get back to "the real Jesus."
March 19, 2008
Live InterviewConspiracy theorists have taken to the internet like bees to a flower. Imagine any kind of wild scheme, and you will find it there. Those who want to revise history's view of Jesus have come up with a radical concept: that Judas was not a traitor, but rather, a man who helped Jesus attain his metaphysical destiny. Today, we will sort out another lie being spread about the Son of God.
