Who could have guessed, around this time last year, all that the future would hold? In much the same way, the events described in Revelation chapter 6 will come on a world unprepared. In this week's episode of "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," Pastor again addresses the question of whether the pandemic is a direct result of God's judgment. We learn that nothing we see today compares to what is coming and the time is short to turn to Christ.
We don't have to look very far to see the terrible effects of sin around us. The natural world can be beautiful one day and wreak havoc and terror the next. Today, Pastor guides us through Romans 8, where we learn why creation groans, longing to be rescued from its sin-cursed state.
In today's episode, Pastor addresses a question he is very frequently asked—"are natural disasters and pandemics a direct judgment from God?" Join us as we consider the vital truths scripture offers regarding our present crisis.
We're continuing our study on "Pandemics, Plagues and Natural Disasters: What is God saying to us?" This week we take a look at two key lessons from scripture that God wants to teach us in a time of crisis.
When we are hit with a crisis it can turn our lives upside down. Suddenly we discover that the things we prioritize under normal circumstances have no real value in the light of eternity. In today's episode of "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," we learn that a crisis can be exactly what it takes for God to get His message across to us.
In our current series on "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," we're discussing the mystery of the will of God in light of the global pandemic—gleaning wisdom from the book of Job. In today's episode, Pastor shares the testimony of a modern-day "Job"—a true story of a Christian couple thrown into unspeakable grief and how they offered up praise to God in the midst of their storm.
When a crisis strikes, whether personal or public, some decide to fall back on the notion that God may not be all-powerful, thereby decreasing his culpability. In today's episode we learn that true comfort is found in the truth that no disaster can befall us without His express permission.
Today, we continue our study of "Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: what is God saying to us?" Pastor leads us to consider the catastrophic Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 and its devastating toll, still felt in Europe to this day. We learn that we cannot always force a "silver lining" when disaster strikes, but we can relinquish control and put our trust in the unseen hand of God.
Are pandemics new territory for the Christian? Pastor looks at moments in church history, very similar to our own, to glean wisdom for us today. Let's take a moment out of the chaos and the noise to remember that Christ has a mission for the Church despite hardships and uncertainty.
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give onto you. Not as the world gives I onto you. Let not your heart be troubled. Neither let it be afraid.
