Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Mourning the Destruction of a Great City, Part 3 of 4 (The Church in Babylon)

January 29, 2015

Jesus looked on Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives and wept over the destruction He knew the Romans would soon bring. Many centuries earlier, the prophet Jeremiah wept when the city was destroyed. Do we weep for our nation, soon to feel judgment?

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

Those who lived in Jerusalem did not realize their destruction was imminent. They never thought God would bring them to account, since this was where His Temple stood. Jeremiah rightly wept as he foresaw the terrible hand of God’s judgment.

When the judgment of God falls, things we hold dear are often laid waste. The city of Jerusalem with its temple was sacked and looted by invading armies whose actions came in the plan and will of God.

What might it be like when God judges America for its personal and national sins? All we need do is see what God did to Judah in the days of Jeremiah, when both the righteous and the wicked suffered. 
January 26, 2015
When Jeremiah proclaimed the coming judgment of God, his fellow Israelites paid him no heed. Life went on with no thought of a day of accounting. The lessons they ultimately learned are lessons we in America must learn, because where Israel went, so will we.

When God’s judgment comes, it’s not pretty. Jeremiah’s warnings to Judah were disregarded, and the people and their king paid a great price. In this message, we’ll see more of what happened to a sinning nation, and how judgment might look as our nation feels the wrath of God. 
January 22, 2015
When the cup of iniquity is full, God pours out His wrath. Judah felt that wrath as invading armies looted Jerusalem and took the people into captivity. America may soon feel that same wrath.

God’s call to ancient Judah was “Repent of your sins and return to the God of your fathers.” The clay on the potter’s wheel cannot control its destiny. Yet we think we can tell the Potter what to do.
January 20, 2015
A lump of clay has no clue what its potter intends to make out of it. Jeremiah 18 tells how God views Israel, as clay on His wheel. Life begins to make sense when we have a right view of ourselves and a right view of God. 
January 19, 2015
Many people think they are masters of their own destiny. But God sees His people as clay on a potter’s wheel, and since He’s the potter, He controls their destiny. We need to see ourselves as vessels God can make and remake as He chooses. 
January 16, 2015
It’s a paradox. When people refuse sound teaching, God sends false prophets to give them lies to believe. Jeremiah teaches that false prophets in themselves are a judgment from God. In this message we’ll see the takeaway lessons from our look at false prophets.
