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.

3 Things God Cannot Do (Gospel Light Minute X #312)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #312, titled, “3 Things God Cannot Do” 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.

Are there really 3 things that God cannot do? Can’t God do everything? Let’s take a look at God’s own Word to see what He Himself tells us.

1. GOD CANNOT LIE
“Ahh,” you say, “yes, I believe that God cannot lie.” This may seem rather obvious or even a trick answer, but nevertheless absolutely true. According to God’s own Word in Titus 1:2 we see “God, that cannot lie.” God, and God alone, can make that claim.

2. GOD CANNOT CHANGE
“Oh, sure,” you say, “I believe that God cannot change.” This is also a rather obvious truth. God tells us in His Word, in Malachi 3:6, “I am the Lord, I change not.” This is another characteristic which is unique to God alone.

3. GOD CANNOT ALLOW SINNERS INTO HEAVEN
“Hmmm,” you say, “I’m not so sure about that one. I don’t know that I believe that.” But, do you know why we know that this is true—absolutely true? Because God Himself tells us, and God cannot lie and God cannot change. So, if God said it, it is true and it is true for all time. Jesus Christ spoke in John 3:3,5 “Verily, verily [truly, truly], I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God…. Verily, verily [truly, truly], I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

You may reasonably question the truthfulness of whatever you hear from men including myself. But what we find in God’s Word (the Bible) is absolutely true and true for ever. Psalm 119:89 says, “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”

Now, if God cannot allow sinners into Heaven, this is very bad news for all of us because God also tells us in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. That may be a difficult truth to accept of yourself, but accept it you must. You may have believed that you were pretty good, but you now know that you are a sinner. The Bible says in 1 John 1:10: “If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him [God] a liar.” Is there more to the story? Is there a way to get to Heaven? Let’s examine more of God’s true words to us.

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” Jesus explains that there are not many ways to get to Heaven. There is one way, and that way is Jesus Himself, because He alone died for our sins: Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Again, we know this is true, because God said it and He doesn’t lie and He doesn’t change. 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”. Salvation is only through Jesus.

There is an incident recorded in the Bible where a man asked: “What must I do to be saved?” The answer was: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”. You may say, “But, don’t I have to do something else?” God gives the answer in Ephesians 2:8-9: “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”. God made salvation so plain and so simple.

Simply take God at His Word. His Word is eternally true. Psalm 119:160 says, “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.” You now know that you are a sinner; you know that there is no salvation in works; and you know that you must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved.

Jesus commands us in Mark 1:15, “Repent ye, and believe the gospel”. Romans 10:9 says, “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.”.

If you have repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, then you may know that you have eternal life. God says in 1 John 5:13: “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,” In the past, you may have hoped that you were going to Heaven. Now you may know it!

So, You Think You’re a Pretty Good Person? (Gospel Light Minute X #311)

It is true; most people are pretty good. However, contrary to popular opinion, not all good people go to Heaven. In fact, you do not have to be a bad person to go to hell. Notice what the Bible says in Titus 3:5: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…” The Bible also states in Ephesians 2:8-9, “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.” You can see that even if you are a good person, God’s Word declares that your goodness is not sufficient to merit Heaven.

Another interesting fact found in the Bible is that you are not really as good as you think you are. Ecclesiastes 7:20 states, “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:10, 23 states, “…There is none righteous, no, not one: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Continue reading “So, You Think You’re a Pretty Good Person?

Have a Good Day! (Gospel Light Minute X #306)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #306, titled, “Have a Good Day!.” 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.

Ever have someone wish you a good day? Your next door neighbor, the cashier in the grocery store, your friend at school, or even a total stranger may say to you, “Have a good day.” But does this wish cause us to have a good day? How can we really have a good day—not only today, but every day? Continue reading “Have a Good Day! (Gospel Light Minute X #306)”

When the Party’s Over (Gospel Light Minute X #301)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #301, titled, “When the Party’s Over.” 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.

There are many people who still believe that life is one never-ending party. We have friends to meet, places to go, and things to get. We seek constant amusement in the pursuit of happiness. We need non-stop activity to fill the emptiness inside, to fight the boredom that surrounds us. Drugs, alcohol, immoral sex, money, and rock and roll are some of the most popular choices in this never-ending party called life. We don’t want to think about the fact that the party will end.

However, there is an enemy to all this fun and excitement. It is death. We all—you—have an appointment with death and eternity. “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Continue reading “When the Party’s Over (Gospel Light Minute X #301)”

Suppose It Is True After All (Gospel Light Minute X #299)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #299, titled, “Suppose It Is True After All.” 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.

Two friends were talking on religious topics. They discussed the question of punishment for sin in a future life. They settled to their own satisfaction that there was none. They decided that hell was a myth. They argued that there was no need for God or a Supreme Being since scientists say that the universe and life and man could have come into being through “natural” causes. And they agreed that even if there were a God, He would be a God of love and thus could not consign His creatures to everlasting punishment.

Then a Christian, who had been a silent listener to the discussion asked:

“SUPPOSE IT IS TRUE AFTER ALL?” Continue reading “Suppose It Is True After All (Gospel Light Minute X #299)”

“I’ve Got My Own Religion” (Gospel Light Minute X #298)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #298, titled, “I’ve Got My Own Religion.” 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.

“Whatever you believe is alright.”

“Everybody has their own beliefs.”

“Just so you believe something.”

These are sayings which you will hear from many people today. They sound nice, and help to make people feel good, since their own beliefs are said to be as valid as those of anyone else. “After all,” some say, “can you really know anything for sure?” People who claim to have “the truth” are looked down upon as being arrogant and intolerant. For some reason, people can accept the idea that any religion is valid as long as it doesn’t claim to be the only true religion! Do you know why that is? It’s Satan’s way of getting people to believe anything but the one thing that will remove his grip on their souls. Continue reading ““I’ve Got My Own Religion” (Gospel Light Minute X #298)”
