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.
