When Will It Get Better? A Biblical Response to the Pandemic

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc upon our way of life. From schools to jobs, the economy and even churches have been impacted in unprecedented ways. One question people continue to ask is when will it get better? When will we return to our previous way of life and no longer need to fear closures, restrictions, wearing masks, or getting sick? In program 4 of Dr. Ankerberg’s series with Dr. Erwin Lutzer entitled Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us?, they address the relationship between today’s pandemic and what the Bible predicts in the future. They ...

And Forgive Us Our Debts

The word translated “debts” in some translations and “trespasses” in others, is the Greek word opheilema. Jon Bloom writes at desiringgod.org, “Nearly all of the most credible English translations over time have translated the Greek words, opheilēma/opheiletēs, as “debts/debtors.” And that’s because in the New Testament and the Septuagint, these words almost always convey the meaning of owing a financial or moral debt or obligation.”[1] What does ‘And Forgive Us Our Debts’ mean? Now, that’s not to say that “trespasses” is entirely wrong. In verse 14, which is a commentary, or expansion on this petition, the word translated trespasses, offenses, sins, or ...

How Does God Use Evil for Good?

In program 1 of Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us? Dr. John Ankerberg interviews Dr. Erwin Lutzer regarding the many ways the Covid-19 crisis has changed our world—and how God is working through it. Some claim the pandemic is a judgment from God. Others suggest God seems to be uninvolved and unconcerned. How does God work in times of trouble? How does God use evil for Good? One enduring story that chronicles how God works through evil is found in the life of Joseph. The final chapters of Genesis reveal his journey from favored son to slave ...

Discovering God’s Will: A Parenthetical Thought

[Author’s note: While writing the article on “Thy will be done,” I struggled to keep the focus on God’s will, rather than “God’s will for me.” Several of the books I am reading while writing this series seem to entwine the two thoughts. So, since that topic is clearly important to many believers, it seemed prudent to take a moment to address it.] I would be hard pressed to count the books that have been written in an attempt to help Christians discover God’s will for their lives. It’s a subject that has paralyzed many a young believer who is ...

The Mind of God

In a recent conversation with a dear friend I made the comment, “I love God’s timing, don’t you?” (Oh, I need to be much more careful about what I say!) But here’s the thing. Most of the time, I really don’t love God’s timing. I want immediate answers to prayer! And I want that answer to be what I want—when I want it. But God doesn’t work that way. Yes, He may very well grant me what I have prayed for, but then again, He may not. He may well grant me what I prayed for in a timely manner (to my ...

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A PRAYER WARRIOR?

Here at the John Ankerberg Show we know how powerful prayer can be - both personally and as a ministry staff - as we have seen God answer prayers for things that seemed impossible at the time.

Likewise, praying for others can be one of the best gifts you can offer. Lots of people share prayer requests from around the world, and we have worked to facilitate a community of prayer warriors to commit to praying for these requests. A commitment to pray for these people and situations means so much to us and to the people sharing the requests. As Christians, this gives us the opportunity to share each other’s burdens and lift one another up before the Lord, even if we have never met in person.

SCRIPTURE FOR THE WEEK

Lamentations 3:22-24
"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 'The LORD is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I will hope in him.'"
