For most kids, Christmas morning is paradise. Amid bright lights, they rip the wrappings off those priceless presents. Later, Mom and Dad pick up the mess as the kids run off with their new treasures. Christmas is certainly a shopkeeper's dream, but now, take a few minutes with Dr. Lutzer and consider Christmas from a place far, far away and a time long, long ago.

All the presents are wrapped...it is another Christmas. But our celebration is but a mere echo of a greater one long ago. Believers running life's race know that God sent His only Son to live among us on that pivotal day in Bethlehem...a day marked by a chorus of jubilant angels. Today: final thoughts on why those angels were rejoicing.

Christmas marks a singular event in human history...the day the Son of God was born. That day was announced by angels. Angels are God's messengers, and the account in the book of Luke tells us that angels were instrumental in making Christ's birth known over the skies of Bethlehem. Royalty was coming into the world, a King Who would live and die, and then rise again to return in glory.

Many families gather at Christmas to read the Nativity story from Luke chapter 2...a story marked by the supernatural work of angels. Angels had a joyous task 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. Today we will take a look at "What Angels Celebrate."

Modern thinking says angels are benevolent friends looking for ways to help us build our field of dreams. Real angels are far different. God's warriors 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 high and lifted up, seated on the throne of His glory.

Christmas is a great time for angels. You see them in department stores, on Christmas tree branches and on holiday greeting cards. But many people are confusing demonic dalliances with real angelic visitations. 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.

Today it is OK to believe in angels...especially the kind that make our dreams come true. But beware of these angels. Believers running life's race 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.

TV shows, books, and magazines all tell us that angels come to us in disguise to surprise us with wonderful experiences. But believers running life's race know that these "surprises" really come from fallen angels, or demons. Real angels do not have time to give us warm, fuzzy feelings. They have a job to do: carrying out God's orders and serving as ministering spirits to God's people.

You can read lots of books about people's experiences with angelic beings. Problem is, some of those beings are no angels. Believers in life's race know that fallen angels, or demons, do Satan's bidding on planet earth. Real angels serve God, and God alone. Today: signs to help us discern the differences between very real beings who inhabit the spiritual realm we cannot see.

Christmas will soon be here, and many of us have angels on the tops of our trees. Pop culture makes much of angels, but who are they? For believers running life's race, God has provided an unseen army of angels, powerful creatures whose duties go far beyond decorating trees. To help us understand them, Dr. Lutzer brings us a series called "The Flurry Of Wings," a study of angels.
