Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Light Shines in a Prison, Part 1 of 4 (Light Shining in Darkness)

February 19, 2015

The Bible calls the gospel “the power of God.” The word “power” in Greek is the word that gives us “dynamite” in English. That power began to be felt in the early church, and today we begin tracing the impact the gospel made in the first century.

Ancient Babylon’s leaders had no idea that their time was up. A festive party ended in the King’s death, and God’s judgment was served. Modern America also has no idea how many minutes are left on its ticking clock. In this message, we will see our handwriting on the wall.

When God says a nation is doomed, that doom is certain. Belshazzar’s feast began with revelry and ended with Belshazzar dead. Babylon died with him, as might America if we don’t heed the warnings of God.

The judgment of God may be long in coming, but it can come with a vengeance. For ancient Babylon, that time came when Daniel foretold the doom of Babylon’s king. We in America should take heed, as his story might well be ours.

When the government tells you who to worship, believers face an easy choice. The answer is simply “no, we will worship God.” Then we, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, have to be willing to face the consequences, whether God delivers us or not.

During persecution, some believers are spared; others go through torture and death. Some wonder why God doesn’t deliver all of His people, since He surely could. In this message, Pastor Lutzer shares an answer to a vexing problem we all face as we try to understand God.

Kings can become very angry when disobeyed. Daniel’s friends said “no” to Babylon’s king and were tossed into a fiery furnace. God does not always deliver His people from harm, but this time He did. And one king found out who was really in charge.

Every day, government pressure mounts on the Christian faith. How should believers react? We can look to a similar time of persecution long ago for guidance. The place was Babylon, and the minority Jews were in the hot seat.

Daniel’s friends went along with their Babylonian captors, but drew the line when their consciences told them to. Some life situations force us to make tough choices. Today we will learn how to live by the Bible’s principles when making them.

When the government creates a law, and the Bible tells us to do the opposite, what do we do? The answers are not always clear, since we are called to obey those who rule over us. We can learn from four men handled who this in ancient Babylon. 
February 6, 2015
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 in order to live in such a culture?
