The Origin of the Nations, Part 2 of 3

April 13, 2012
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. To achieve this, He caused the language of His people to divide.

We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

With hundreds of nations and billions of people, the earth of 2012 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.

Although the church celebrates the resurrection of Jesus every year, in one sense it celebrates that great event every week. On the first day of the week His disciples found their crucified Lord very much alive. Every Sunday since, God’s people have gathered to mark the raising of Jesus from the dead. He is indeed the Victor over the grave. Since we are His followers, we too shall have victory.

The resurrection of the dead at the end times is a huge concept. Imagine billions of graves springing open. This concept, though hard to imagine, is at the core of the gospel. Just as God raised Jesus, so believers too shall be raised with glorious new bodies fit for eternity. It is the real you that will once again live and move.

Many people have said things about Jesus, adding their biases to the biblical account of His life. But the most attested fact of ancient history is the bodily resurrection of Jesus from a cold tomb. It is that resurrection which gives us the promise of our own resurrection one day. God raised Him in power and He will raise all who believed in His Son while alive on this earth.

Who killed Jesus? The question is more complex than it first appears.The Romans carried out the crucifixion. But why? Jewish religious leaders wanted Jesus out of the way, but they had to entice the occupying Romans to do the deed. Because Jesus died for the sins of all mankind, in one sense all of us killed the Son of God. Today we look into a centuries-old question.

We have all said “no” when we should have said “yes.” We all have missed opportunities. Once gone, those decisive moments cannot be regained. The people of Israel had a chance to embrace Jesus as their promised Messiah. Instead, they clamored for His execution. Jesus wept over Jerusalem because He knew that its destruction was certain. Today we will look at an important opportunity which Judas missed.

On the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem is a church called Dominus Flevit, which means “the tears of God.” Near this spot, Jesus wept over a city which was soon to be destroyed. God would use the Romans to level the temple in judgment since the nation of Israel did not acknowledge the day of their visitation by the Son of God. In 70 AD, not one stone of the temple was left upon another.
April 4, 2012
On Palm Sunday we commemorate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem just days before His trial and crucifixion. Even today, pilgrims to the Holy Land walk the road Jesus walked, imagining the momentous events which led to the sacrifice that makes salvation possible. Jesus entered Jerusalem as a king unlike any who had ever preceded Him.

Football players who put on their “game face” may not always reflect what they feel on the inside. Life is a lot easier if we reflect on the outside what we are on the inside. This was a central point of the famous Sermon on the Mount where Jesus explained in simple terms the kind of character that pleases God.
April 2, 2012
The Beatitudes are the heart of the Sermon on the Mount. These eight statements sum up the kind of character God wants us to have. Eight times Jesus pronounces a blessing on those who are poor in spirit, those who mourn, who are gentle, who hunger for righteousness, who are merciful, pure in heart, peacemakers, and who endure persecution. Join us as we focus on these monumental words.
