Gospel Light Minute X

Daniel Whyte III is a full-time evangelist by calling. Through the Gospel Light Minute X, his main aim is to present a short, clear, understandable presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which saved him over 30 years ago. Throughout his ministry, he has emphasized a clear presentation of the Gospel because he believes that many pastors and churches mix up the Gospel with other things, and this causes confusion for nonbelievers. In order to do that, Daniel Whyte III uses tracts that he has written, as well as tracts produced by the following ministries: Fellowship Tract League, the American Tract Society, and Good News/Crossway Tracts in the production of this broadcast.

Feeling All Alone and Like No One Cares for You? Well, Someone Does (GLMX #408)

Feeling All Alone and Like No One Cares for You? Well, Someone Does (GLMX #408)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #408 titled, “Feeling All Alone and Like No One Cares for You? Well, Someone Does” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

Someone cares for you.

He knows your present circumstances. He knows your very thoughts. And He is calling to you now: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. He is Jesus Christ, and rest—real rest—from the burdens of life, is what He offers you. Rest from fear and guilt, from worry and frustration, from loneliness and disappointment.

If you are struggling under life’s pressures, He offers to bear your burdens with you: Jesus Christ said in Matthew 11:29-30, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”.

If you are searching for peace of mind and soul, Jesus offers you His peace: He said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”.

Yes, Jesus, God’s Son cares for you. He became a man to redeem you from the consequences of sin. In His 33 years on earth He suffered rejection, abuse and cruelty. He endured hunger, thirst and pain. And He died on the cross of Calvary to fulfill God’s plan of salvation: The Bible says in Isaiah 53:5, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”. When He arose from the grave He triumphed over sin and death, promising all who will receive Him: “Because I live, ye shall live also.” .

You can be sure that this very moment Jesus cares for you and wants to meet your needs. For the risen Savior is both God and man: being man He understands your every need; being God He is able to deliver you from despair and hopelessness.

Because Jesus is the risen Son of God, He has power to forgive your sins and give you new, eternal life: The Bible says in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”.

Because Jesus lived on earth as a man, He understands your feelings and needs. Through His Spirit He offers you inner peace and strength. Through His people He offers encouragement and companionship. Through His Word, the Bible, He reveals a new way of living in harmony with God and man. And He Himself stands at the right hand of God in Heaven representing those who have put their trust in Him. The Bible says in Hebrews 4:16, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Jesus said in John 6:37, 47, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out…He that believeth on me hath everlasting life”. Come to Jesus Christ today. Receive Him as your Savior and Friend. Then you too can know that truth, power, sympathy, and help are found in one glorious Person—the Lord Jesus Christ!

If you want to be saved from the wrath to come and from an eternity in Hell, and if you believe that Jesus Christ suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.

The Importance of Taking Heed to Storm Warnings (Gospel Light Minute X #407)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #407 titled, “The Importance of Taking Heed to Storm Warnings” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

The deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history claimed the lives of as many as 12,000 people. Tragically, there was sufficient warning and ample time for evacuation; the warnings were simply not heeded.

Saturday morning, September 8th, 1900, residents of Galveston, Texas awoke to find that the warnings were true. Over the next few hours, a monstrous hurricane cut their ties to the mainland, destroyed much of their city, and killed as many as 12,000 people. Galveston had come through storms before, and its people thought this one would not be any different. Even if the warnings were true, they planned to get out at the last moment. But by the time the storm arrived, it was too late to escape.

For those who live in storm-prone areas, there is a risk of becoming desensitized by repeated warnings—especially when many of them pass without incident. Nevertheless, the danger in these powerful storms is still very real, and we are frequently reminded of just how tragic the results can be when warnings are not heeded, or when storms and natural disasters strike without any warning at all.

There is another type of storm which has been forecast for many years, but has not yet occurred. The storm of God’s judgment for sin is looming on the horizon, and this time the danger is not only of losing life and property, but also one’s eternal soul. His Word, the Bible, is full of warnings about this storm. One is very clear in Matthew 3:7: “Flee from the wrath to come”.

Heeding the warnings, millions have already evacuated themselves to higher ground. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:5-6, “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:”

Tragically, much of the world, spiritually dead in sins, will only realize the fury of the storm after it has begun and they are eternally doomed. Read what God has to say about the danger faced by all who do not know Him in 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, “…the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord”. The Bible states in Proverbs 29:1, “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

Our sin has put us directly in the path of God’s righteous judgment. How can we elude the storm of His wrath? By following His escape plan. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, opened the evacuation route when He willingly died on Calvary’s cross and suffered at the hand of God, paying the penalty for our sins. Now we must realize our danger and trust Jesus to be our “hiding place from the wind” and “covert from the tempest”.

Perhaps you heard this warning before and chose not to act on it. Do not let your heart be hardened by ignoring God’s Word any longer. Flee to Christ today! The danger is real and there is no time for delay; the time to escape God’s judgment is now. Turn to God and put your faith in the One who died for you and rose again. In so doing, be assured by God’s Word that your soul will be saved forever, and you will start a brand new life with God!

The Bible states in John 3:16,18, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.…. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

The Bible says in Hebrews 2:3, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?”

If you want to be saved from the wrath to come and from an eternity in Hell, and if you believe that Jesus Christ suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.

Knock, Knock, Knockin’ On the Real Heaven’s Door Will Get You Into Heaven (Gospel Light Minute X #406)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #406 titled, “Knock, Knock, Knockin’ On the Real Heaven’s Door Will Get You Into Heaven” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

JESUS IS THE DOOR TO HEAVEN.
Jesus is the Door… He said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Jesus is the Way… He said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

JESUS IS THE ONLY DOORWAY TO HEAVEN
My friend, let me ask you a most important question. Are you trying to enter Heaven some other way than through the way Jesus provided? If you are, Jesus said you are a thief and a robber. Jesus Christ said in John 10:1, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”

There is no other way to get to Heaven. Religion is not the way! The preacher or priest is not the way! Water baptism is not the way! Church membership is not the way! Being a moral person is not the way! Doing good works is not the way.

The Bible states in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” There is nothing you can do to earn Salvation or your way into Heaven. The Bible states in Isaiah 64:6, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags…” Only by receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour can you enter into the Kingdom of God.

HOW CAN YOU ENTER THE DOOR?
You enter the door by asking Jesus to come into your heart and save you. The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” The Bible states in Romans 10:9-10,13, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Don’t let the devil deceive you by making you believe there is some other way. The Bible says that the devil “…is a liar, and the father of it.”

Eternal Salvation is a free gift to all who will simply receive Jesus Christ into their heart. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Jesus said in Mark 1:15, “…repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Believing the Gospel is believing “…that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and was resurrected by the power of God for our salvation. The Bible states in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.

The Bible says in John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Please don’t reject the Gospel! Trust Christ today!

Here’s Your Ticket To Heaven. Get On Board (Gospel Light Minute X #405)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #405 titled, “Here’s Your Ticket To Heaven. Get On Board” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

May I offer you a ticket to Heaven? You don’t have to pay for it, and that’s a good thing, because you could never afford to buy it! It’s free, but only because someone has already paid the ultimate price for it.

God loves you and not only wants you to have a fulfilling life on earth, He wants you to live with Him in Heaven forever. He’s the One Who offers you a paid-in-full ticket. No one wants to go to hell where there will be no joy and no pleasures whatsoever, and God doesn’t want anyone to go there either. The Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9 that God is “not willing that any should perish”.

But there is a problem with getting that free ticket. We have all done wrong — we have all sinned, haven’t we? God’s Word says in 1 John 1:8, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves…” Sin pollutes — it makes us unclean, unfit for God’s presence in that wonderful, perfect place called Heaven. Sin penalizes — it separates us from a sinless God. The Bible states in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death”

In short, our sinfulness blocks the delivery of the ticket that we need to get into Heaven!

WHO PAID FOR IT?
Wait! There’s good news! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth to be born and to live His life without sin. He “suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God” When God “laid on him the iniquity of us all”, Jesus cried out, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” The answer is simple and profound: Jesus was separated from God because He took your place and mine on the cross, and by dying He paid in full the “wages” our sins had earned.

Then He rose from the dead, was seen by hundreds of people, and is alive today so you can know Him and receive the gift of eternal life — your ticket to Heaven. That’s right! The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God…”

That is fantastic! You can become a “new” person — born of God — to start a brand-new life that pleases God. And, of course, all God’s children have a ticket to Heaven!

DO YOU WANT IT?
It is no accident you were given this offer of a ticket to Heaven. God has made sure you can receive it. The whole issue is, did Jesus pay for all your sins or didn’t He? God said He did. Trust God that it is so. John 3:36 states, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life”.

Just as a man says, “Yes, I will take this woman to be my wife,” God wants you to tell Him, “Yes, I will take Jesus to be my Saviour. I believe that He is the only way to Heaven,” The Bible says in 1 John 5:12, “He that hath the Son hath life”. If you believe that God’s way to Heaven is the only way, you can “claim your ticket” by telling God in words like these:

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.

Remember what John 3:36 says: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life” Do you now believe in Jesus as your Saviour, your only “ticket to Heaven”? Do you have everlasting life, like God said?

How to Know For Sure You Are Going to Heaven When You Die (Gospel Light Minute X #404)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #404 titled, “How to Know For Sure You Are Going to Heaven When You Die” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

A professor of philosophy in a university was lecturing on the lack of certainty in our age. “Certainty is impossible,” he said. “We can know nothing for certain.”

A freshman raised her hand and asked “Professor, are you sure of that?”

“I’m certain!” he replied.

Yes, we live in an age of uncertainty. We’re learning more and more about everything and yet we seem to know less and less for sure.

KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW

In contrast, the first followers of Jesus were characterized by their certainty. They didn’t guess . . . or hope . . . or wish. They knew for certain. They were even willing to die for that certainty!

They said, “We know that our sins are forgiven. We know that we are the children of God. We know that to die is to be present with the Lord. We know that nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”

Unfortunately, most people don’t have such confidence when it comes to eternal life. They hope, they wish, they would like to think, but they don’t know for certain. As a result, they have no confidence in the face of death, which is tied to the certainty that we know we have eternal life. Yet, they often decide to put off thinking about death and dying until their “later years.”

KNOWING MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Some time ago I spoke at a meeting of a group of churches. After speaking one morning, I made my way outside for some fresh air. As I passed by the church kitchen I saw a giant of a man washing dishes. “Good morning! How are you today?” I said. He returned my greeting.

We shared some small talk. Then I said, “I’m in town conducting a spiritual workshop, and we’re talking about eternal certainties. I’d like to ask you, ‘When you die, do you know for certain that you will go to Heaven?’”

He set his jaw and looked down for quite a while. When he lifted his face he said, “No, I don’t know.”

“Are you aware that it is possible to know that?” I asked.

“Oh, yes. You see, I’m a preacher. I work here in the daytime, but I have my own church.” he said.

I shared with him about God’s grace and how he could know that he had eternal life. I explained that Christ had paid for all of our sins and that if we trust in Him we can know that we are on our way to Heaven. Then he and I bowed our heads to pray, and he placed his trust in Christ.

Before, he had been trusting in his own efforts to be worthy to go to Heaven. He had been trusting in his life as a minister to gain acceptance with God. But that day he agreed there was nothing good enough that he could bring to God, and he placed his faith in Christ.

A COMMON ROADBLOCK

That reminds me of what a man named John Gerstner once said, “Christ has done everything necessary for [the sinner’s] salvation. Nothing now stands between the sinner and God but. . . .”

But what? What is this roadblock that stands between so many people and their salvation by the gracious, forgiving God? That roadblock, he continued, is “the sinner’s ‘good works!’” Not their sins, but their good works, and their delusion that they do not need Christ and that their own good works can satisfy God.

FALSE ASSURANCE AND CERTAINTIES

It’s exactly like the Bible—God’s Book to humankind —says in Jeremiah 17:9: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”. Unfortunately, many people don’t awaken to their error until it’s forever too late. How many people in the first five minutes after death would give anything for simply one minute to get right with God?

Do you have certainty about eternity? Do you know for sure?

Throw away all trust in your own goodness. Look to the cross of Jesus Christ. See Him Who suffered the agony of the condemned in your place, Who received from His own Father the penalty we deserve and then rose from the dead. Christ Himself “bore our sins in his body on the tree [cross]”. Transfer all of your hopes from what you have done to what He has done for you at Calvary. Place your trust in Him alone. The Bible states in 1 John 5:12–13, “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”.

Do you know that you have eternal life?

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.

Are You Born Again? (Gospel Light Minute X #403)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #403 titled, “How To Be Born Again” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

Satan, the god of this World, is the One Telling You to Kill Yourself So You Can Go to Hell in a Hurry– Jesus Has Power Over Satan (Gospel Light Minute X #402)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #402 titled, “Satan, the god of this World, is the One Telling You to Kill Yourself So You Can Go to Hell in a Hurry– Jesus Has Power Over Satan.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

According to World Health Organization, Close to 800 000 people — that is nearly a million people — die due to suicide every year worldwide, which is one person every 40 seconds. Suicide is a global phenomenon and occurs throughout the lifespan. There are indications that for each adult who died by suicide there may have been more than 20 others attempting suicide. And I say to you that if you commit suicide you are going to a place called Hell, where Jesus said, “Their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Satan Controls the Lost Immoral.
I have talked to men and women behind prison bars and on skid row, with the ugly scars of sin showing in their faces and broken bodies. Most of them did not realize that Satan is the god of sin, and what power he has had over their lives. It is sad to see men and women with broken lives under the dominion of Satan.

Satan Controls the Lost Moral.
My friend, we see on the other hand though, men and women that are good parents, first class citizens, fine moral leaders, and church members that are also under the dominion of Satan. It is hard to understand how these two classes of people could be under the dominion of the same person. The answer comes from God’s Word in John 3:18, “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Satan Controls False Teachers.
Satan has influence and power enough to keep a man from looking into the Bible and seeing that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, gave His life for a sin-cursed world. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 11:13-14, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”

In this Scripture, God reveals Satan as a deceiver, even working in religious fields, and that certain men have joined Satan to help in his work.

You may ask, “How can I tell false teachers from the true ones?” False teacher will never mention the fact that Jesus Christ paid all your sin debt with His own precious Blood. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:22, “…without shedding of blood is no remission.” Revelation 1:5 says “[Jesus] loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,” They teach good works and church membership, but never tell you that you need to turn from your sin and trust in the work Jesus did to save you. Jesus Christ said in Luke 13:3, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” 1 Corinthians 15:3 says, “…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;” They laugh at sin and at the present and eternal damage that it does. Proverbs 14:9 says, “Fools make a mock at sin…” Romans 6:23 states, “For the wages of sin is death…”

Jesus Has Power Over Satan!
You may ask, “How can I be saved?” Only by God’s power! The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:57, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” The Bible alone reveals the true work of Jesus Christ. In His death, burial, and resurrection, He took your place and completely paid for your sins so that you could escape hell for eternity.

The Decision is Yours!
If you really believe Jesus can save you, pray to Him now. Confess that you are a helpless, guilty sinner, and that you want to be released from the power of Satan and from spending eternity in Hell.

If it is your desire to be saved, and if you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
