Dr. Erwin Lutzer: January 22, 2013

Now Available in the Situation Room

We're sorry this broadcast is now available to Situation Room Members Only.

The culture in the United States is one where the occult isn’t taken seriously. It’s glamorized in best-selling books, makes big money at the box office, and garners high ratings on television. But demonic influence is very real. In this message, Pastor Lutzer helps us see the dark side of “fantasy.”

The Straightway Vs. CAIR (program #13)

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung talks with Winkie Medad, from Shilo, Israel, about the last of the seven Feast that God gave the Jewish people, as found in Leviticus 23 in the Torah. Winkie will share his experience in a "succa", thatched hut, for the seven days of Feast of Tabernacles. They will also discuss the troubles that have been taking place on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Dr. Jane Orient, is Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS), a non-partisan professional association of physicians in all types of practices and specialties across the country. She is an internal medicine physician and has been in solo private practice since 1981. She is currently president of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness and since 1988 has been chairman of the Public Health Committee of the Pima County Arizona Medical Society. She is the author of “Your Doctor is Not In: Healthy Skepticism About National Healthcare.” Dr. Orient began by describing why Omaha, Nebraska, is on the map regarding the current Ebola crisis. This is because it has one of 4 hospital units in the nation that is capable of caring for patients under Bio Safety Level 4 (BSL-4) conditions. That is the category for organisms such as Ebola.

The cross is the centerpiece of history and the core of God’s redemptive agenda. On Running to Win, we have been exploring God’s view of the cross, but today we will focus on man’s viewpoint. As we will soon see, the contrast is startling.

Topic: Hear the new audio of Kenneth Copeland shouting and attempting to bind the demon of Ebola. Then listen as he takes Psalm 91:3 out of context. Brannon puts it back into context. Then listen as he takes Deuteronomy 28 out of context as well as Isaiah 53:5. Brannon explains the true context of these passages. Brannon told you a few weeks ago that these guys would claim they could heal Ebola. Topic: When we see video of people like Copeland or so called-evangelicals leaders promoting and interviewing in an affirming manner false teachers that believe, among other things, that they are binding Satan, binding the demon of Ebola, gold dust is falling, that glory clouds are appearing, you would think it was a parody or skit on a television program as they seek to mock Christians. Yet, these videos are not a parody or a joke but real. Brannon explains why he believes these false teachers are leading millions astray and are given credibility by the pro-family industrial complex as Brannon warned about years ago and in his book Religious Trojan Horse. Topic: The USA Vineyard Churches has put out a white paper entitled Pastoring LGBT Persons. In this report the Vineyards says they will serve communion willingly to gays and lesbians and those living in open and unrepentant sin. What does Paul say about this in I Corinthians 11? Pastor Mike Abendroth joins us to tell us the Biblical standard his church follows in regards to communion. Topic: We take your calls.

Hello friends - there was a mix-up on this week's program. I sincerely apologize for a repeat program being posted. We should be back on track now. The move to Idaho has left me most unorganized. At any rate, let's continue our study into biblical hermeneutics. It's one of the most well known verses in the Old Testament: "If My people who are called by My name..." 2 Chronicles 7:14. Many Christians take this verse and apply it to the United States or whichever country in which they happen to reside. It has become a popular verse both in the realm of religion and that of politics. Does this verse encompass the United States as, for example, Joseph Farah asserts? Can we take promises God made to Israel and make blanket application to ourselves or our home country? We will look at this question and utilize other texts (Scripture interpreting Scripture) to come to a biblical understanding of this question. (Hint: No, we can't) What about texts such as Isaiah 54:17 which says that "no weapon formed against you will prosper" and then appears to give a universal application by saying "This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord." Surely a promise such as this has a broader application than that of Israel, correct? Aren't all Christians "servants of the Lord"? How can we know what applies to us and what does not? We will examine this question and, hopefully, answer it!

Jimmy DeYoung will cover geo-political events around our world with Ken Timmerman on today's edition of PTIB. Jimmy will discuss with Ken the frustration of the United States with Turkey in the fight against IS; an Imam says that Islam will take over the world within the decade; Iran is still seeking nuclear WMD's and the bomb blast at an Iranian nuke site.

The Straightway Vs. CAIR (program #12)

Religious People Need The Gospel,– Part 1: When you think of people who most need the gospel, who do you normally think of? Pastor Mike shares 4 facts about God’s judgment designed to draw you to Jesus Christ in a recent sermon on Romans 2.

On today's program, JD answers a sincere question about Matthew 18 and church discipline, discusses Heath Mooneyham's return to ministry after only 4 weeks after his DUI, Joel Osteen's prayer of blessing at Houston Mayor's inauguration, and then Spurgeon is Calling.

: HOUSTON, VATICAN, GAY MARRIAGE Chris discusses a series of recent stories on the gay marriage controversy, including the subpoena of Houston area pastor's sermons by the openly lesbian mayor, Annise Parker. Also discussed is the latest attack against two Christians who own a wedding chapel in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. They have now been threatened with jail and a $1000/day fine if they refuse to perform gay weddings. Meanwhile, in Rome the Vatican has concluded its synod on the family, offering an initial "welcome" to homosexuals that was later amended to a more conservative tone. But is this the beginning of a progression towards accepting gay marriage in the Roman Catholic Church?

Mark Krikorian is a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues who has served as executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies since 1995. The center is an independent, non-partisan research organization that examines and critiques the impact of immigration on the United States. His knowledge and expertise in the immigration issue has brought him many times before Congress to testify. He has written numerous articles and has authored two books, “The New Case Against Immigration, Both Legal and Illegal” and “How Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration.” 1 in 5 U.S. residents speaks a foreign language at home. This amounts to 61.8 million people. Immigration is the reason for this and according to Mark, too much of it becomes a problem for national unity.

The cross of Jesus was in God’s mind from eternity past. Its benefits extend to eternity yet to be. It is history’s great intersection; the place where God expressed His love to fallen mankind most clearly.

Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association and American Family Radio interviews, and promotes the book of, false teacher Bill Johnson of Bethel Church. Hear the audio clips of the two of them talking. This is the same Bill Johnson that talks about feathers following out of the sky, gold dust falling on people and a glory cloud appearing in his church auditorium. And now he appears on AFA/AFR to promote his book Experiencing the Impossible. Listen as Johnson takes Mathew 10 out of context to call for Christians to do the works that Jesus commissioned the Apostles to do. Listen as Tim Wildmon, who seems to have no Bible knowledge to refute the false teaching of Johnson, claims that the question of signs and wonders is really a seminary discussion. One reason evangelicalism is in the mess it is today is because non-discerning evangelical leaders seem to think a very basic doctrinal question and discussion is seminary level. Brannon and Justin discuss from the Scriptures why people today cannot perform signs and wonders as the Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ did. Furthermore, as the Apostolic Age was coming to an end upon the completion of the New Testament Canon and the completion of the laying down of foundational doctrine of the New Testament Church, the Apostles themselves began to lose the ability to heal. Why is Tim Wildmon having a theological conversation with a false teacher and promoting his book? Topic: Why does America not need more religious broadcasters but Biblical broadcasters? Topic: We take your calls.
