Is There An Answer? Part 1 (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 441 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 808 since Jan. 1, 2016)


Honoring and giving glory to God and Jesus Christ, and remembering their servant Billy Graham by preaching an adaptation of one of his powerful messages.

TEXT: John 3:1-7:

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

———-

Arnold Toynbee, the great British historian, as he observed the great dilemmas of the world, said that only a revival of Christianity could answer the world’s great problems. If this is true, then I say to you today that you and I, as ordinary citizens, had better be about it! It is the only way out of the world’s dilemma. And if the only way for the next generation to survive is through a revival of Christianity, we had better be about it in every way we can.

But there is another reason why we ought to be about it, and that is because you and I have everlasting souls that are accountable to Almighty God. If you are to find peace for the rest of the days of your life, and peace in those last moments before you stand before your Maker, you had better do something about it!

There was a Man who came along two thousand years ago and said: “I have the answer.” He gave to us in the Sermon on the Mount the greatest moral and social document the world has ever known, but we have never been able to live up to it. Oh, we have tried, but we have failed. Why? Because we find no strength within ourselves to live up to it. When you want to do good, you do bad; and there is something that seems to pull you down all the time and makes you do the things you really don’t want to do.

How can we overcome this? What is the answer? This Man who was born a man, but was the God-Man, walking in human flesh, said, “Ye must be born again.” That is a strange statement. He said it to an educated man, to an intellectual. He said it to a great leader. He told Nicodemus: “Ye must be born again.” In other words, He was saying that the answer is a renaissance, a turn-about, a complete change in human nature.

You find lying, cheating, bigotry, greed, hatred, and immorality wherever you go. I dare you to go to any place in the world and not find these things. You can’t! It is a disease of human nature, and the Bible calls it sin. Jesus Christ said that a man must be born again, He must have a change of his nature, He must be transformed in order to overcome this disease of sin. And what’s more? Jesus said that He was the means by which man can be born again.

You say, “Well, that is too simple.” I know it sounds simple, and it also sounds illogical, and it may not be very academic. In fact, that was Nicodemus’ response to Jesus. He said, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered, “Marvel not, Nicodemus, you will never understand it, but ye must be born again.” The Bible promises that if we receive Christ into our hearts as Saviour, Lord, and Master, our lives will be changed and transformed. This transformation is the answer to the world’s problems. It is the answer to your problems. Will you act on this answer today?

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 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… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ 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.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at dw3@gospellightsociety.com and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

The World’s Darkest Hour, Part 6 (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 440 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 807 since Jan. 1, 2016)


Honoring and giving glory to God and Jesus Christ, and remembering their servant Billy Graham by preaching an adaptation of one of his powerful messages.

TEXT: Matthew 26:36-39:

36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

———-

Jesus suffered greatly in the process of His crucifixion. First, He suffered tremendous physical pain. He was beaten, spit on, and whipped before being taken to the cross. Then, He suffered tremendous loneliness — not only the loneliness of solitude and abandonment in that hour, but throughout His life on this earth, he experienced the loneliness of sorrow, the loneliness of character, and finally, on the cross, He experienced the loneliness of sin.

The third element in the bitter cup that Jesus had to drink was tremendous mental anguish. Jesus had previously quoted the prophet Isaiah. He knew He had to suffer. He knew something about the affliction of the day of His crucifixion and the night prior to it in the garden. He knew what was going to take place, and, naturally, He was suffering much anguish as He thought about that suffering.

Millions of people around the world are suffering mentally. Millions have psychological problems. Thousands are in mental institutions. Thousands of people today are confused in their minds. I want to tell you that Jesus can touch your mind if you will let Him come in. Many of our mental problems are the result of spiritual separation from God, or the result of idolatry — setting up someone or something else as god. Mental unbalance, many times, is the result of putting other things before God.

Wherever you are, thousands of people are suffering mental anguish. It is not just an American problem. It is a world problem. It is the problem on Cyprus, it is the problem in the Middle East, it is the problem in New York, it is the problem in Chicago, it is the problem in the Far East, it is the problem in India. Thousands of people are searching their souls. Their minds are tortured and bewildered, wondering what is the right thing to do in a complicated situation.

I tell you Christ, is the answer. Come to Christ. Come to the foot of the cross and let Him touch your mind and your heart. Let Him relax your soul. Only when Christ touches the minds of men will we have love for our fellow man, as love knows no bounds, and we shall love our neighbours as ourselves. Would to God that all of us could come to the cross and see in Christ a solution to all the problems that bewilder us and confuse us. Mental anguish may not be your problem right now. There may be some other problem in your life, but you still need Jesus. You need Christ. The country needs Christ. The world needs Christ.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 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… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

How to Overcome Temptation, Part 80 (Onward Christian Soldiers #204)


Welcome to the Onward Christian Soldiers Discipleship Class. I am Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society and pastor of Gospel Light House of Prayer International. The purpose of this time together is to teach young believers everything they need to know about their faith in Jesus Christ and provide them with the knowledge they need to live victorious Christian lives.

Our key Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 10:13:

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

— PRAYER —

Our lesson today is titled “How to Overcome Temptation, Part 80”

In this section of our Onward Christian Soldiers discipleship class, we are looking at specific temptations that are, as the Bible says, “common to man.” We are looking at what the Bible says about these sins so we can be aware of its dangers and so that we can hide Scripture in our hearts to use when we are tempted.

The sin that we are looking at today is the sin of “sloth.” This is the fourth sin in a list of 12 temptations that comes from two sources — one ancient and one modern. The first source is a list that was developed by monks in the early church called “the seven deadly sins” or the “cardinal sins.” The second source is a Barna survey from 2011 which tracked the top temptations Americans admitted to struggling with.

Today, we will be looking at Proverbs 15:19. (Remember, the text of this lesson is made available online after each class, so you can go to our website GLHOPI.com, click the “Onward Christian Soldiers” banner on the home page, and begin to learn these verses by heart throughout the week.)

Proverbs 15:19

The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain.

This verse speaks to the difference in the attitude of a slothful person and a person who is ready and willing to work. When they get up in the morning or embark on any endeavor, they have different mentalities about the way ahead of them. And this mentality plays a large part in how they approach work.

For the slothful or lazy man, the path ahead is full of thorns. Some versions read, “strewn with thorns” or “blocked by thorns.” The slothful person only sees the difficulties, the impediments to success. He uses any roadblock as an excuse to justify lazy behavior. John Gill writes in his commentary, ‘The way of the slothful man is made difficult by his own conduct. In his slothfulness, he implicates and entangles himself in such difficulties that he cannot extricate himself; his way is not passable, at least not very easily. In his own apprehensions, he raises difficulties about doing business, which to him seem insurmountable, and which discourage him from attempting it, it being like breaking through thorns and briers.’ The slothful man has a mentality which says, ‘Difficulty ahead. Don’t go there.’

The righteous man, on the other hand, sees the way before him as plain. The Hebrew word translated as “plain” literally means to raise a highway. The man who has a righteous, non-lazy mentality sees what lies before him as the means of getting from where he is to where he wants to be. He sets a goal and pursues it . He is not intimidated by the challenges that he may face — certainly not to the point that he never attempts anything.

If we are to overcome sloth in our lives, we must deal not just with our actions, but with our atitude — our mentality. We must choose to see what lies ahead of us as a way of opportunity — a way to reach our goals and accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

If you struggle with sloth or laziness, take this passage to heart and begin to use it the next time you face that temptation.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, John 3:16 states, “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.”

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and I want to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! I want to congratulate you on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”.

The Second Coming of Christ, Part 4 (Second Coming Chapel)

Honoring and remembering God, Jesus Christ, and their servant Billy Graham by preaching an adaptation of one of his powerful messages.

TEXT: Matthew 24:1-8:

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

——

We have seen the first sign which Jesus said would tell us that His Second Coming is near — the revival of religion. All over the world, people are turning to religion and religious teachers for guidance. But what they find is false because it is only through Christ that the world can be saved.

The second sign that Jesus gave is found in Matthew 24:6. Jesus said, “Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” Christ said that unto the end there will be wars and rumors of wars. He said kingdom shall rise against kingdom. Some people predicted that great alliances would be formed to fight other great alliances, which brought us to two great world wars and the possibility of a third world war. Christ is saying, in effect, “War is a part of the degenerate economy; and because men refuse to go my way, there will not be real peace among the nations until I come back.”

Ladies and gentlemen, I think every one of us should do everything we can for peace. Every day of my life I pray for peace. We are told in the Scriptures to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” We are told to work for peace; we are told to pursue peace. And I believe that is why we should back every effort to bring peace. But after all is said and done, the very best efforts of man will fail. Men will still fight as long as there is hatred in the human heart. As long as there is prejudice in the human heart, men are going to fight. As long as there is greed within men, they are going to fight.

Jesus foresaw all of that. He knew that as long as human nature was separated from God, there would be wars and rumors of wars. And He said when these great wars get devastating and worldwide, the end is not far off.

Then He gave a third sign: “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” How much hatred there is in the world today! Much of this hatred seems to involve mental problems. When has there been a moment in history when the American people had such prosperity, and yet there are so many mental breakdowns? Psychiatry is busy today in such a frantic effort to patch up our jangled nerves that I am told psychiatrists are going to each other for help.

Do you know how many chronic alcoholics we have in America? We have five million! Think of it, five million chronic alcoholics in America. Do you know how many sleeping pills we take every night? Twenty-one million. Twenty-one million sleeping pills a night to put us to sleep. I don’t know how many wake-up pills we use to get us up. How many people are taking tablets and pills just to dull them from the realities of life?

Never before in history has there been a nation that had so much and is so bored with life. Walter Reuther says that he wants to bring about a four-and-a-half day week. Well, that sounds fine. But I am going to ask you: What in the world are we going to do with our leisure time? If we are going to invest it for the kingdom of God, let us have it. But if we are going to give it to the devil, let us work six days a week.

Then, fourthly, Jesus said in Matthew 24:37, “As in the days of Noah, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” What were they doing in the days of Noah? They were eating and drinking and making merry. In the days of Noah, they were not against God, they were not antagonistic to God, they did not hate God. They were religious; they believed in God. But they just did not have time for God. They were too busy with their eating and drinking and making merry. They were too busy with their work. They were too busy with their pleasure. They were too busy with their own selfishness to give any time to God at all. They were marrying and giving in marriage. Do you know what that is? That is the divorce problem.

Statistics say that half of all marriages in America end up in the divorce court. Jesus indicated that there would be a tremendous increase in immorality. We have gotten to the place that if some actress has had three or four husbands, the more she can attract people at the box office. I don’t blame the star so much. I blame the people. The morals of the people have gotten so low that they are buying filthy literature. Don’t blame the man who is publishing it. Blame the people who buy it. We are in a position today where a man can commit immorality and people don’t even think anything about it. They just accept it. Jesus said this acceptance of immorality is a sign that the end is near.

Immorality is sin, and the only way that man can be saved from sin and the punishment of sin is through Jesus Christ, through placing your faith and trust in Him and Him alone. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are not ready for His Second Coming. Allow me to show you how you can receive Christ as Savior today.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 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… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven.

How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 19 (Praying Through the Bible #295)


Daniel Whyte III

Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Ephesians 6:18-20

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

We are in a series of messages titled “Praying Through the Bible: A Series on Every Passage and Verse Regarding Prayer in the Bible.” The purpose of this series is to encourage and motivate you to pray to the God of the Bible. We highlighted each of these over 500 verses and passages in the Prayer Motivator Devotional Bible. So far, we have completed 294 messages in this series.

This is message #295 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 19.

As we have considered the types of prayer that we should employ in spiritual warfare, we have discussed: the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, the prayer of request or supplication, the prayer of intercession, the prayer of thanksgiving, the prayer of worship, the prayer of consecration, the private prayer, and the silent prayer. Today, we are going to continue looking at another type of prayer that we began looking at last week — the prayer of forgiveness.

Last week, we saw that the prayer of forgiveness is based upon Jesus’ words in Mark 11:25: “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” In other words, any time of prayer is a time to forgive — especially if we want God to forgive us of our sins, faults, and failures. It is easy for us to remember those who have offended us because our human nature holds on to grudges. But when we are praying to God, we ought to let go of those offenses and forgive those who have wronged us. Jesus taught that our forgiveness of others precipitates His forgiveness of us. What better way to let God know that we have chosen to forgive someone than through prayer to Him?

The prayer of forgiveness is something that we will likely have to engage in every day. C.S. Lewis said, “This is hard. It is perhaps not so hard to forgive a single great injury. But to forgive the incessant provocations of daily life—to keep on forgiving the bossy mother-in-law, the bullying husband, the nagging wife, the selfish daughter, the deceitful son—how can we do it? Only, I think, by remembering where we stand and by meaning our words when we say in our prayers, ‘Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us.’ We are offered forgiveness on no other terms. To refuse it is to refuse God’s mercy for ourselves. There is no hint of exceptions and God means what He says.”

If you want to be successful in prayer, in your Christian walk, and in spiritual warfare, let go of unforgiveness. Don’t hold on to the wrongs or perceived wrongs that others have committed against you. Follow Jesus’ heart and example when He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Often, forgiving someone in our hearts is all God requires, and telling the forgiven party that they are forgiven is unnecessary, as it can lead to pride on the part of the person who is doing the forgiving. So, pray, forgive, and be victorious in spiritual warfare.

Now, if you are with us today, and you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, your first prayer needs to be what we call the Sinner’s Prayer. First, please understand that you are a sinner, just as I am, and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.”

Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 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… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You have done the most important thing in life. For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ 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.”

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

TEXT: Matthew 26:36-39:

36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

———-

During the process of Jesus’ crucifixion, He endured the suffering of flogging, scourging, and humiliation. He also endured the loneliness of suffering. But that is only one type of loneliness that Jesus experienced. During His time on this earth, the Lord also experienced the loneliness of sorrow.

Some of you have been in a sickroom and you have seen a loved one snatched from you. You could not do anything about it, and your heart was crushed by sorrow. All of us have experienced disappointment in life. Maybe your husband has walked out on you. Maybe your girlfriend has left you, and your heart is crushed, and you’ve become sorrowful. Jesus also suffered, and He knows what sorrow feels like. He stood at the grave of His friend Lazarus and wept. He knows what it means to have a crushing sorrow. And in your loneliness of sorrow, He can be there with you. He can wipe those tears away. He can give you joy and peace in your heart.

Jesus also experienced loneliness of character. A man may find himself in a community or society where he has to stand alone on some moral issue. It is not easy to stand alone. Moses had to stand alone. Elijah on Mount Carmel had to stand alone. The fact is, we who know the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour are in a minority in the world. We are going to be standing alone more and more. Someday we may have to pay with our blood and our lives for our faith in Jesus Christ. You may have to stand alone in your office. You may have to stand alone for Christ at your high school. You may have to stand alone in your community as you try to live for God. Sometimes you get discouraged and you feel lonely. Well, remember that almost everybody whom God ever used knew those hours of loneliness. And Jesus knew them better than anyone.

Finally, the third type of loneliness that Jesus experienced is the loneliness of sin. That is the worst loneliness of all. The Bible says that when Judas betrayed Jesus after the Last Supper, he left the meeting of the disciples and he went out into the night — away from Jesus, away from God, a son of perdition, lost forever. You remember when you were young and your conscience was sensitive. If you told a lie, your conscience spoke to you. But now it has become hardened and seared. There are many of you who wish your life were different. You wish that you were not chained by the habits of sin. You would like to be through with it but you cannot break free although you have tried. You are alone in the night. Yes, there is a loneliness of sin. The older you get, the more lonely you will be, because you will be farther away from God. And away from God, there is nothing but loneliness and remorse.

Go ahead and continue with it for a while. The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season — but only for a season. A man told me one day, “I’m not afraid of going to hell; there are going to be a lot of other people down there.” But, listen, the Bible indicates that hell is a lonely place. You won’t see anybody else there. You won’t even see the devil. The Bible’s picture of hell is one of separation from God amid the blackness of night, darkness, and loneliness. You will be all alone in hell. You won’t see your husband or your wife. You won’t see your friends. You will experience for eternity the loneliness of sin. Sin pays wages. It crushes your personality, it crushes your life, it crushes your soul, and it ends you up in hell.

But, on the cross, Jesus experienced all of that crushing loneliness of sin on your behalf. He took on Himself the loneliness of suffering, the loneliness of sorrow, and the loneliness of sin, so that you would not have to endure that for eternity. Turn to Christ from your sins today. Let Him free you. Let Christ come in, and then you can enter heaven — a place of fellowship with God, a place where you will never be alone. Heaven will be a glorious world of fellowship and friendship. There will be no loneliness there.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.

I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

The Second Coming of Christ, Part 3 (Second Coming Chapel)

Honoring and remembering God, Jesus Christ, and their servant Billy Graham by preaching an adaptation of one of his powerful messages.

TEXT: Matthew 24:1-5:

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

——

Jesus informed us that there would be certain signs that would lead us to believe that His second coming is drawing near. I believe we are seeing some of these signs today indicating that the climactic point of history is about to be reached.

The first sign He mentioned in Matthew 24 saying, “Many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” I take that to mean that there will be a resurgence of interest in religion all over the world, and we are certainly seeing that today. I doubt if there has ever been a time when there has been such a revival of religion as we are seeing today. All over the world, men are speculating. All over the world, they are talking about God. They are talking about religion because the world sees the hopelessness that we are in. So, we have a revival of religion, but that does not mean that we have a revival of true religion.

In Christendom today, all over the world, in every church, there is the church within the church. There is usually a minority of people that do the work in every church. They are the people the pastor can count on all the time — the ones that tithe, the ones that are there rain or shine, the little crowd that is there at the prayer meeting. Sure, on Sunday morning, everybody is there. But there is a faithful number that truly believe; there is a group that is born again by the Spirit of God; and nobody knows who they are. Within the church, the wheat and the tares grow together.

That’s the reason there is no such thing as a perfect church. I know a lot of people that jump here and jump there, looking for a perfect church. They’ll never find it. If you found a perfect church, the moment you joined it, it would be imperfect. None of us is perfect. The wheat and the tares grow side by side.

I know people who carry their Bibles with them. They can quote you one verse after another. They are orthodox to the core, but it is questionable if they have ever been born again of the Holy Spirit. They have become cold, hard, and callous, like the Pharisees. There is no warmth; there is no love.

We have others today who give intellectual assent to Christ. They believe in the Bible, yet they have never had a personal experience with Christ. Their lives have never been transformed. Their talk, their conversation, and their thoughts are entirely on the things of the world. They give themselves to pleasure and to business, and have little time for Christ. They want to be a Christian as long as it’s not too inconvenient. If it is going to cost them anything, they don’t want to pay the price.

This revival of religion — false religion, without true faith in Christ — is a sign of the end times. Religion won’t save the world; and religion won’t save you. Salvation only comes through Jesus Christ, through placing your faith and trust in Him for deliverance from sin and the consequences of sin. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are woefully unprepared for His Second Coming. Allow me to show you how you can receive Christ as Savior today.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said 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.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.
