Are we willing to stand alone, knowing that God stands with us? Daniel was alone in warning the Babylonian king of his pending destruction. That night, Belshazzar’s feast began with revelry and ended with his death In this message, let’s explore Daniel’s three indictments against Belshazzar. We’ll be challenged to live for Christ in a world that’s lost its way.

The judgment of God may be long in coming, but it can come with a vengeance. As the Babylonian Empire partied, Daniel stood before the king and read the handwriting on the wall. The pride, blasphemy, and idolatry of Babylon could be overlooked no longer; God would destroy them that very evening. In this message, we face what God is doing here in America, and how God deals with nations. We must be willing to speak about God’s judgment with compassion and conviction.

During persecution, some believers are spared while others go through torture and death. Do you ever wonder why God doesn’t deliver all His people? For three exiles in Babylon, their immediate well-being was less important to them than honoring the one true God. In this message, we’ll nail down three lessons for Christians living in America. God’s purposes will prevail, even amid persecution.

Every day, cultural and civil pressure mounts on the Christian faith. How should believers react? For Israelites in ancient Babylon, there was no freedom of religion. In this message from Daniel 3, we’ll explore the context of a true story of courage. How could three men say, “Throw us into the fire, but we’ll not deny God whether we are delivered or not?”

When authorities tell us to do one thing, and the Bible tells us to do the opposite, what do we do? Whenever possible, we should be in the culture, just like Daniel and his friends in Babylon who worked for the king who had destroyed their homeland. But sometimes, we must resolve to take a stand and draw a line in the sand. In this message, we’ll contemplate biblical principles when we face conflicts of conscience. Let’s prepare to face any consequences from a hostile world.

Christians in America are rapidly becoming like Daniel and his friends in Babylon: out of sync with their pagan environment. How do we reconcile what we believe with what we have to do to live in such a culture? In this message, we’ll identify three different ways we can respond to a pagan culture. Before we look at how Daniel stood against the culture, let’s find out how he participated in the culture.

Christians are no longer the dominant cultural force in America. How do we live with lasting peace amid a pagan culture? In this message, we’ll find three vital lessons God gave exiled Israel to live in His peace—seeking the shalom of the city. Whatever job or situation we’re in where we’re the minority, we can be encouraged to remain faithful.

Should Christians separate themselves from the prevailing culture or engage it with enthusiasm? The surprising answer comes from God’s instructions to captive Judah living in Babylon. Under the judgment of God, thousands were taken into Babylonian exile, where they dwelled in a pagan society. In this message, we’ll find five instructions God has for His people in Jeremiah 29. We could do well to live by these instructions in today’s culture.

Do we weep for our nation’s destruction? Jesus looked on Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, weeping over the destruction He knew would come from the Romans. Centuries earlier, the prophet Jeremiah wept when the city was destroyed. In this message, we’ll ponder lessons from a city under God’s direct judgment. Even in the midst of destruction, God’s steadfast love will never fail us.

When the judgment of God falls, the things we hold dear are often laid to waste. The city of Jerusalem with its temple was sacked and looted by invading armies, acting under God’s ultimate plan. In this message, we’ll see how the book of Lamentations exposes Jeremiah’s heart as he looks at this devastated city. Through the grief, we’ll discover what God holds dear.
