The book of Daniel opens with Jerusalem besieged by Babylon and God’s people under the control of a pagan king. As Alistair Begg leads us through the conditions of Daniel’s captivity and Daniel’s response to those circumstances, we are reminded to keep our focus on the sovereignty of God. In the midst of our own persecution, we can look to the example of Christ and rest in God’s promises to us.
Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws Him.” Since Christians are called to evangelize, we must ask the question, “If God is in control, then what is our role in the process?” In this message, Alistair Begg helps us clarify the balance between our responsibility and God’s sovereignty.
Esther’s prayers were answered as she acted in faith and approached the king. Instead of making her request right away, she invited him to a banquet – and invited Haman, the Jews’ enemy, as well! As we see the stark contrast between her wisdom and Haman’s pride, we are encouraged by Alistair Begg to act wisely and depend on God’s sovereign purpose.
The world has all kinds of ideas about what is required to fix its problems, but in this message, Alistair Begg points to the most essential need in the lives of all people. In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul wrote of his desire for them to become experientially aware of the power and authority of Jesus Christ. Affirming Christ’s supremacy, His authority over the Church, and the security of the Christian in Jesus, Paul proclaimed the hope that can only be found in our risen, ascended, and reigning King.
Biblical prophecy can be confusing and difficult to understand. The apocalyptic images in Daniel 7 communicate truth in a way that is vivid and that can be understood by believers in every age and culture. In this message, Alistair Begg walks us through the terrors of Daniel's vision to its conclusion: the promise of the Son's unending dominion. We are reminded that God is the One who sets up and brings down authorities, and He is sovereignly in control of history.
Paul's “closing argument” in Romans 8 begins with a series of questions and answers encouraging believers to view everything from a renewed perspective. In this message, Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus is both a victorious warrior-king, greater than anything that opposes us, and God’s perfect sacrifice, providing everything necessary for our salvation. With the light of these truths in mind, we can walk in the benefits and blessings of His grace.
