In the End, Everyone Takes the Knee Including Trump (Gospel Light Minute X #289)


This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, reminding you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

This weekend, the news media, the sports world, and the internet was engulfed by the debate over football players taking a knee during the National Anthem to protest racial and social shortcomings in this nation. It began during the 2016 football pre-season when Colin Kaepernick, the then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback, sat down on the sidelines while the anthem was being played. He later began kneeling. The debate over the appropriateness of doing so was hot and furious then and the rancor has only increased, culminating with comments by the President of the United States and spilling over into the NBA and Major League Baseball, with LeBron James and Steph Curry weighing in, and the first player ever in the MLB to take a knee while the “Star-Spangled Banner” played before another episode of “America’s favorite pastime.”

The hashtag “TakeTheKnee” exploded on social media, with many using, as a point of reference, photos of Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Abernathy, and other Civil Rights leaders kneeling on a sidewalk during a protest as well as photos of Tim Tebow who was known in the NFL for kneeling as if in prayer on the sidelines and in the end zone.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on this issue. And it is amazing to watch how much a small action (or lack thereof) can stimulate such massive controversy. When you think about it, whether or not one kneels during the National Anthem is really of little consequence. What we each need to be concerned about as individuals is who and what we are kneeling to in our lives.

Kneeling is an act of submission or acceptance. People kneel or bow before kings. Many people kneel in prayer to God. Symbolically, kneeling is a way of saying, “I submit. I acknowledge that I am not in control.” Of course, some people think they are in control of their lives. They see themselves as “the master of their fate, the captain of their soul. But, the Bible tells us that they, too, will have to kneel to somebody. Romans 14:11 says, “As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” The Lord that this verse speaks of is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Philippians 2:10 says, “God exalted Jesus to the highest place, and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”

No matter what your philosophy about life is right now, you can rest assured that you will meet Jesus at the end of your life, and you will take the knee before Him. What happens after that depends on what you do about Jesus right now. You can either let Him be the Lord of your life now; or you can be forced to admit that you were wrong about life later. You can either kneel before Him now, or be forced to kneel before Him later. Kneeling while the National Anthem is playing or while the flag is being raised may or may not change anything, but kneeling before Jesus Christ can and will. I encourage you to put your faith and trust in Him today. Let Him lead, guide, and direct you in this life, and give you eternal life in Heaven with Him. Here is how you can receive Him as your Savior today.

First, you must realize and admit that you — just as myself — are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Our sin nature is the reason why we do not get along with each other on earth.

Second, you must understand that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” — spiritual death and physical death. We die physically and go to the grave because of sin and we die spiritually and go to hell because of sin.

Third, you must understand that you are on the road to hell because of your sins. 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.” The Bible says 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.”

Fourth, you must accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible 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.”

Fifth, you must accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Because of God’s love for you, he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for your sin. 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.” Because God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins, we can live with God in Heaven for all eternity after we die.

Finally, with these facts in mind, you must repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 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 are willing to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, please pray with me the following prayer to seal your decision once and for all: 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 want to trust Jesus 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 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.

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.”

Allow me to share with you another way President Trump can help black America and another way black America can help President Trump.

— President Trump Should Start a Legitimate Institute to Train People in Business

Proverbs 18:15 says, “The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.”

Regarding this verse, Matthew Henry said, “Those that are prudent will seek knowledge, and apply their ear and heart to the pursuit of it, their ear to attend to the means of knowledge and their heart to mix faith with what they hear and make a good improvement of it. Those that are prudent do not think they have prudence enough, but still see they have need of more; and the more prudent a man is the more inquisitive will he be after knowledge, the knowledge of God and his duty, and the way to heaven, for that is the best knowledge. Those that prudently seek knowledge shall certainly get knowledge, for God never said to such, Seek in vain, but, Seek and you shall find. If the ear seeks it, the heart gets it, and keeps it, and is enriched by it. We must get knowledge, not only into our heads, but into our hearts, get the savour and relish of it, apply what we know to ourselves and experience the power and influence of it.”

Scripture repeatedly speaks of the importance of teaching, training, or instructing others. Parents are instructed to teach their children. Older people are instructed to teach younger people. All people are instructed to take heed to teaching and training.

Those who are in positions of authority ought to seek to pass on their training to others. The woes of the ill-begotten Trump University have been well-documented in the media. However, in our view, a business school that teaches the principles President Trump himself has used to become successful is a great idea. Although, Mr. Trump should not directly run such an enterprise. He should sit down with experienced educators and work with them to create a curriculum and then hire teachers to teach that curriculum, both online and at a physical campus.

President Trump should consider making a huge donation to Liberty University and see if Dr. Falwell would let him open a Donald J. Trump School of Business at Liberty University.

No one can deny President Trump’s success in the business world. There are many who do not agree with his politics and who may not like his personality but are willing to learn how to win in business. I am sure there are many who will take advantage of this opportunity.

— Now, here is the tenth thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Churches Can Help Mr. Trump by Being the Church

Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Warren Wiersbe said our churches have departed from this great Commision “In most churches, the congregation pays the pastor to preach, win the lost, and build up the saved—while the church members function as cheerleaders (if they are enthusiastic) or spectators. The “converts” are won, baptized, and given the right hand of fellowship, then they join the other spectators. How much faster our churches would grow, and how much stronger and happier our church members would be, if each one were discipling another believer. The only way a local church can “be fruitful and multiply” (instead of growing by “additions”) is with a systematic discipleship program. This is the responsibility of every believer, and not just a small group who have been “called to go.”

These verses consist of what is called the Great Commission. It embodies the complete purpose of the church which has not changed since it was given by Jesus some 2,000 years. Unfortunately, many churches have gotten away from this Commission. We do a lot of other things, but we don’t do the main thing. John Wesley said, “You have one business on earth — to save souls.”

Far too many black churches are guilty of putting other things before the Gospel. Some have put social action in front of the Gospel; some have put politics in front of the Gospel; some have put prosperity in front of the Gospel. Many have forgotten that, as Andrae Crouch sang, “Jesus is the answer for the world today.”

The black church needs to get back to being Gospel-focused. Certainly, we ought to have a voice on social issues, especially those issues that are diametrically opposed to God’s word. But our primary focus should be on telling others about Jesus Christ and the grace that saves. Society needs this witness especially in this day and time when so much is up in the air. The black community needs this witness so that our people will know that their trust should not be in a man. Their trust should not have been in Obama, and it should not be in Trump. It should only be in God. If people begin placing their trust in God, they will not feel dismayed if and when something happens at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that they do not like.

Some Christians have equated the election of Donald Trump with the beginning of a spiritual revival in America. Those who think this are sorely mistaken. Spiritual revival can only come through the church of the Lord Jesus Christ getting back to its first love and getting back to the basics of prayer, evangelism, and discipleship. We want a government that does its job, but we also need the church to do its job. The black church can be a help to the Trump administration by keeping the main thing the main thing and doing the work that it, not the government, is called to do. In the words of Tony Evans, “We’re not on the Democrat’s team. We’re not on the Republican’s team. We’re the referees for both teams.”

The church makes society better by living like Jesus and by winning people to Jesus. This is the only true hope and change possible for the world. The only way America will be truly great is by more people trusting Christ as Savior, and that requires the church to do its job in fulfilling the Great Commission.

In closing, allow me to remind you that the only way America’s problems can be truly solved is through Jesus Christ, God’s Son who came to this earth two thousand years ago. The problem with people on this earth is sin. And Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell. Billy Graham once said, “I do not believe that any man can solve the problems of life without Jesus Christ.” No matter what problems you are facing, you can only find the solution for your problems in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please allow me to show you how you can accept Him as your Savior today:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20, “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

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

3. 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.”

4. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. 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.”

With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. 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 are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following 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!

— President Trump Should Keep Open (and Possibly Expand) Federal Student Aid

Proverbs 3:13 says, “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.”

There are some things that you can only get from God and from having a right relationship with God. Wisdom is such a thing. In fact, James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” However, there are other things that we must work to get. Understanding and education are such things. In the Bible, we see that a man “finds” or “receives” wisdom. But he must work at getting understanding. The preacher of Ecclesiastes spent much of his time studying and observing life in order to understand the meaning of it. That is what the Bible means when it speaks of education — studying, observing, examining, and being trained in a subject in order to understand it.

Regarding the latter part of this verse, Joseph Benson said Solomon’s words imply that “men should labor for understanding as those labor who dig and draw forth metals out of the earth.” Education is hard work because it requires us to discipline our flesh. Paul said, “Much study is a weariness to the flesh.” But God uses those who take the time to get educated. He used Moses who was “learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians” to write the five books of the Law in the Old Testament. He used Paul, who was taught personally by Gamaliel, the most celebrated Jewish teacher of his time, to write most of the New Testament and lay the foundation for the spread of Christianity across the Roman Empire.

Statistics have shown that those who have a college education get higher paying jobs and have a lower unemployment rate. And the more people who are working in a given society, the more stable and prosperous that society is. To that end, we encourage President Trump to keep open (and possible expand) Federal Student Aid.

Most young black people do not have parents or grandparents with the means to save money in a college fund for their offspring. Nor do most black people come from the type of background that the president came from, where they can pay for college expenses upfront. Thus, the government’s federal student aid provision is a great help. (Unfortunately, some of our people do not take advantage of it as they should.) And unfortunately, many people of all races abuse this wonderful opportunity and make it bad for others.

That being said, with Mr. Trump’s emphasis on cutting unnecessary spending and shutting down inefficient government programs, some are concerned that education funding may be affected. If President Trump wants to help the black community, it is our humble recommendation that he keep all education funding, and in fact, expand it.

Providing student aid for those who wish to go to college but simply don’t have the money is an investment that provides a great return over the long haul. A college degree enables people to become citizens who give back to their government (through paying taxes) and their community (through being positive contributors and role models). They add to society, not just benefit from it. Those with college degrees are better equipped to make America great again.

— Now, here is the eighth thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Should Find Things They Can Work On With the Trump Administration

In Matthew 5:25 Jesus admonished his followers to “Agree with thine adversary quickly.” This statement was made in the context of how to resolve legal disputes. “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”

Throughout Scripture, we see the value of cooperating with others for the greater good. In Psalm 133:1, David declared, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” The Wise Preacher wrote in Ecclesiastes, “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.” One commentary says, “Those who live together in any kind of society, and join their powers together in pursuit of any important object act more cheerfully, and accomplish their designs more readily, than any of them could do in a solitary state.”

Steve Harvey, prompted by President Obama, set a great example by meeting with President-Elect Trump and one of his appointees, Ben Carson. Speaking from Trump Tower in New York, Harvey expressed that while he had supported Hillary Clinton, he was ready to work with the Trump administration for the benefit of urban communities.

This should be the attitude of all Black Americans. You may not agree with the Trump administration on everything, but those things that you can agree on you should support and work to accomplish.

One of the banes of our politics is the idea that the “other side” is always wrong. The party system, which George Washington declared was ‘of the devil’, reinforces this. Some Republicans rejected proposals and refused to work on them simply because they were proposed by and/or supported by President Obama, a Democrat. There are Democrats gearing up to do the same thing to President Trump, no matter what he proposes, simply out of spite over the election. Don’t be one of those people.

Allow me to share with you another way President Trump can help black America and another way black America can help President Trump.

— Mr. Trump Needs to Cease Assuming that All Black People Live in “Hell”

Matthew 7:1 says, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

These words of Jesus are often quoted among both Christians and non-Christians. Some seem to think that this command constitutes a Christian’s acceptance of any lifestyle or belief system. But that is not what Jesus is saying here. Rather this command has to do with the spirit in which we judge, scrutinize, or criticize the behavior of others. We ought not to judge in a spirit of hypocrisy or arrogance as though we are glad to catch and expose someone else’s wrong, but in a spirit of love and compassion, one that is eager to help the guilty party see the error of their ways and correct their behavior. One commentary lists the following ways in which we judge others in the wrong spirit:

1. When we think the worst of others.
2. When we only speak to others of their faults.
3. When we judge an entire life only by its worst moments.
4. When we judge the hidden motives of others.
5. When we judge others without considering ourselves in their same circumstances.
6. When we judge others without being mindful that we ourselves will be judged.

Skye Jethani writes that Jesus is drawing a line between judgment (righteous discernment) and condemnation (declaring someone irretreviably sinful). He says, “Jesus is warning us about excluding anyone, or seeing ourselves or our group as inherently better than any other. He is calling us to not condemn people, to not pass final judgment and declare them irretrievably guilty. We may disagree and discern another person or group to be wrong — but when that discernment causes us to value another person or group less, then we’ve crossed the line into judgment, condemnation, and exclusion.”

This principle can be applied to the political climate present in America. Too often, one group condemns another group and refuses to work with them simply because they disagree on a certain issue. We all should refrain from this type of behavior in all walks of life.

The new president must not have a spirit of condemnation toward black people. He must not subscribe to stereotypes about black America. All black people do not live in the “hood” or in a “ghetto.” All black people are not living on food stamps and refusing to look for jobs. By the grace of God, my family and I have never been on food stamps in our lives. Now, food stamps are good for people who really, really, really need them. But as a Christian, I believe in the principle of praying for my daily bread and God has provided my daily bread all of these years.

Most black people are trying to live better. Some have the means to do so; others just need a little help. If President Trump wants to avoid continuously insulting black people and keeping the black community upset over his characterizations of us, he must cease making these assumptions.

— Now, here is the fifth thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Can Help the Trump Presidency by Working Hard and Striving to be Successful

Ecclesiastes 5:19 says, “Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.”

There is nothing wrong with hard work and striving to be successful in whatever endeavour you set your mind and hands to. In fact, the Bible extols such behavior as long as one does not make such behavior the center of his life. God wants us to enjoy Him most of all, but also to enjoy the fruit of honest labor on this earth as well as the level of wealth and blessings that God chooses to give us from that labour.

Ray Stedman said, “When people discover the blessings of life that God has provided, they become richly involved with the savor of life right now. How good it is to know the living God, to know that He controls what comes into your life. He expects you to make choices; Scripture always encourages that. But rejoice in the wisdom of a Father’s heart and richly enjoy what is handed you day-by-day; that is the secret of life.”

Many today have an attitude of loathing toward those who are counted as super wealthy. Concerns about income inequality and global poverty are understandable, however, they do not negate the fact that many of those who are wealthy, like Trump, are wealthy because they worked hard and smart for a long time. Instead of getting upset at Mr. Trump for his wealth, black Americans should be inspired to work hard and make a better life for themselves and their families and to make the nation better. Hard work is always rewarded.

More importantly, we all should be ‘content with such things as we have.’ This does not mean that we cannot work for more, but that we should be happy with what God, in His infinite wisdom, has chosen to grant us at the time. Simultaneously, we should not begrudge others who God has blessed to be wealthy.

Trump has promised that one of his main goals will be to create jobs for all Americans. When those jobs come, we encourage black Americans to take advantage of them. Start looking for work now and let God lead you to the employment situation that He wants you to have.

If you are on food stamps or other government aid programs, don’t be content to stay there. There is a myth perpetrated among conservatives that all black people are lazy, want the government to take care of them, and always vote for Democrats because they promise “free stuff.” Don’t let this be true about you.

————–

In closing, allow me to remind you that the only way America’s problems can be truly solved is through Jesus Christ, God’s Son who came to this earth two thousand years ago. The problem with people on this earth is sin. And Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell. Billy Graham once said, “I do not believe that any man can solve the problems of life without Jesus Christ.” No matter what problems you are facing, you can only find the solution for your problems in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please allow me to show you how you can accept Him as your Savior today:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20, “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

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

3. 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.”

4. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. 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.”

With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. 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 are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following 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.”

Here We Go: Liberty Counsel Reports Trump Will Continue to Support Obama’s Tragic Homosexual Executive Order

As I have stated previously, if Trump supports homosexuality, homosexual marriage, and the homosexual agenda, his presidency will be doomed to fail like Obama’s and America will never be great again. Just as the ministers surrounding Obama failed to press the urgency of this matter in God’s sight, so have the ministers surrounding Trump. Sadly, people do not understand that God will not bless what they do if they defy Him on something so basic to human existence. To roll back Obamacare, immigration laws, and abortion laws, and not roll back the abomination of homosexuality, homosexual marriage, and the homosexual agenda, is evidence of a lack of wisdom and understanding. It is also cowardice, for the real reason the Trump administration will roll back all these other things and not the abomination of homosexuality is because they do not want to tackle the demonic, vindictive, well-heeled homosexual community, and because they fear man more than they fear God. As this is a slap in God’s face and in the Christian community’s face, mark our words: this will doom Trump’s presidency like it doomed Obama’s presidency if he does not repent of this foolishness and strike down everything in his power regarding this abomination that Obama has unleashed on this nation.

The truth of the matter is, President Trump, we’d rather have a million Muslim refugees come to our shores who strongly agree with Christians against homosexuality than to have this abomination continue in our country.

According to Liberty Counsel:

The White House stated today that President Donald Trump will continue to enforce Obama’s bad executive order imposing the LGBTQ agenda on federal contractors. There is no federal employment statute that includes “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” Congress has repeatedly rejected efforts to amend federal employment law to include “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” The order, signed by former President Obama in 2014, imposes the LGBTQ agenda in the employment context for federal contractors.

The White House press release from his press secretary’s office stated, in part: “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said, “President Trump should not continue to impose Obama’s bad executive order that goes far beyond federal law. The fluid and subjective term ‘gender identity’ does not prevent discrimination in the work place but rather injects in the workplace an agenda that is harmful to businesses and to other employees. Such a policy opens women’s restrooms to men. To force businesses to be at the mercy of a person’s subjective and changing thoughts or be forced to allow those with ill intent to cause harm is absurd.”

____________________________________

As President Trump begins his time in office, I am sharing some practical and biblically-based ways in which he can help black America as well as some practical and biblically based ways black America can be of help to him.

So far, we have named the following ways President Trump can help black America:

1. President Trump Can Help Black America by Setting a Godly Example
2. President Trump Can Help Black America by Not Circumventing the Legitimate Leadership of the Black Community; Rather he Should Reach Out to Them Respectfully and Individually
3. President Trump Can Help Black America by Hiring a Trusted African-American to be One of his Senior Advisers Along with Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, and Jared Kushner

We have also named the following ways black America can help President Trump:

1. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Praying for him
2. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by being Open-minded and Giving him a Chance
3. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Respecting the Office Even if They Can’t Respect the Man Occupying the Office

Allow me to share with you another way President Trump can help black America and another way black America can help President Trump.

— President Trump Should Take Some Time to Learn How to Communicate Well With Black People

1 Corinthians 9:22 says, “To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

In this verse, the Apostle Paul talks about part of his evangelistic strategy. Although he was a Jew, the majority of his ministry was spent reaching people outside of Judaism. He knew that there were barriers between Jews and Gentiles, so in order to reach his Gentile audience, he adopted, as much as possible, the culture of his audience. This strategy has been used by missionaries in foreign lands, notably Hudson Taylor who adopted the dress and hairstyle of the Chinese people he was seeking to reach even against the criticism of the British Christians who were supporting him.

Chuck Smith said, “Paul sought to win people to Jesus Christ by being sensitive to their needs and identifying with them. We should try to reach people where they are today and expect to see changes later.” Adam Clarke adds that those who seek to follow Paul’s example should “attend to the end he had in view and the manner in which he pursued that end. It was not to get money, influence, or honour, but to save souls. It was not to get ease but to increase his labours. It was not to save his life, but rather that it should be a sacrifice for the good of immortal souls!”

In a lesser sense, Paul’s strategy can be adapted to any area of life in which you are seeking to connect with people who are in a different culture, race, ethnicity, or social standing. In the political realm, President Trump should take some time to learn how to communicate well with black people. This will require him to listen to and communicate with a diverse array of black leaders. He needs to learn that “the blacks” are not a monolith. This is not to try to get the president to be “down” or “act black.” But the simple fact is that President Trump was born into and raised in an entirely different cultural and social reality than most black people. This does not make him a racist, but often ill-advised and uninformed. If he is going to be a great president of all the people, he needs to be willing to admit that he is not familiar with all the people, and then make an effort to learn about all the people.

— Now, here is the fourth thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Should Not Do to President Trump What Some Whites, Including Trump, Did to President Obama

Luke 6:27-28 says, “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” This type of behavior goes against human nature. It is normal to seek retribution for wrongs done against us or our kind. But, through the power of the Holy Ghost, we can love and even do good to those who have done wrong. William Barclay said, “We cannot love our enemies as we love our nearest and dearest. To do so would be unnatural, impossible, and even wrong. But we can see to it that, no matter what a man does to us, even if he insults, ill-treats and injures us, we will seek nothing but his highest good.”

Matthew 5:38-39 says, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

Craig S. Keener said, “Jesus’ words strike at the very core of human selfishness, summoning us to value others above ourselves in concrete and consistent ways. Some misread this text as if it says not to oppose injustice; what it really says, however, is that we should be so unselfish and trust God so much that we leave our vindication with him. We have no honor or property worth defending compared with the opportunity to show how much we love God and everyone else. By not retaliating, by not coming down to the oppressors’ level, we necessarily will appear unrealistic to the world. But Jesus’ way scorns the world’s honor and appears realistic only to those with the eyes of faith. It is the lifestyle of those who anticipate his coming kingdom.”

Throughout his eight years in office, President Obama had to endure a litany of insinuation about who he was and what he believed. He was accused of being a Muslim and having sympathy for terrorists. He was accused of hating white people. Some claimed he was a socialist. Even up until the final months of his presidency, people were claiming that he was an illegitimate president because he was allegedly born in Kenya and faked his Hawaii birth certificate. Many believe that some whites in Congress refused to work with President Obama because he was black. Even President Obama said as much in an exit interview.

Some black Americans may be tempted to engage in the same kind of activity against President Trump. However, that is not wise; that kind of tit-for-tat is foolish and pointless. It only poisons the waters of possible future cooperation. The Bible commands us to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us. You may have felt slighted on behalf of President Obama, but if we want to make progress in America, we must learn to lay aside past insults for the sake of the nation and for the success of what we can accomplish together.

10 Ways President Trump Can Help Black America; 10 Ways Black America Can Help President Trump (Part 3)

Proverbs 15:22 says, “Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.”

— PRAYER —

As President Trump begins his time in office, the Lord has led me share some practical and biblically-based ways in which he can help black America as well as some practical and biblically based ways black America can be of help to him.

So far, we have named the following:

1. President Trump Can Help Black America by Setting a Godly Example
2. President Trump Can Help Black America by Not Circumventing the Legitimate Leadership of the Black Community; Rather he Should Reach Out to Them Respectfully and Individually

1. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Praying for him
2. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by being Open-minded and Giving him a Chance

Allow me to share with you another way Trump can help black America and another way black America can help Trump.

— President Trump Can Help Black America by Hiring a Trusted African-American to be One of his Senior Advisers Along with Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, and Jared Kushner

Proverbs 15:22 says, “Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.”

Here, again, the Bible speaks of the wisdom of those who seek out the counsel of others. This verse speaks of a “multitude” of counsellors — that is, many counsellors. God has blessed all people with different gifts. Everyone does not have the same type of insight or way of seeing things. That is why He expects leaders — and all people — to seek out the advice of others. If they do so, the Bible says their purposes or plans will be “established.” The word “established” means to stand or to be accomplished. Those initiatives that have the firm foundation of solid council will be more likely to be successful.

John Gill said, “If a man determines and resolves upon a matter, and at once hastily goes about it, without mature deliberation, without consulting with himself and taking the advice of others, it generally comes to nothing. However, having the advice of others, even many others, he can be confirmed that he is right in what he has thought of and purposed to do; and therefore goes about it with the greater spirit and cheerfulness, and is more likely to succeed, and generally does.”

Here is one way President Trump can take this advice to have “many” counsellors in his cabinet. It has been said before that politics is a game of perception. What things look like is what people will believe they are. If President Trump does not have any black people in the key advisory roles in his cabinet, it will be difficult for him to fight the assumption that he does not care about black people. However, having a trusted respected black Christian person advising him alongside Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner can go a long way to easing the concerns that many in the African-American community have. Black people need to know that someone who has their back also has the president’s ear.

Mr. Trump should not be afraid to tap someone who has publicly disagreed with him for this advisory role for he has done so with other cabinet and advisory picks and that is a positive thing. He needs to be able to hear things from someone who is not enamored with his wealth or his power. He needs someone who will be able to tell him the truth as to what is really going on in the black community, what black people are really saying and feeling, and what they really need. This would be a tremendous help to him and to the black community.

Additionally, Mr. Trump would help himself a great deal if he hired some African-Americans in all departments of government, making some leaders of those departments. He also should direct his children to hire more blacks in prominent positions throughout his companies.

— Now, here is the third thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Respecting the Office Even if They Can’t Respect the Man Occupying the Office

Mark 12:17 says, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Romans 13:1-7 says, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.”

All Christians are called to respect governmental authority, no matter who is in office. R.C. Sproul said, “The function of government is to restrain evil and to maintain, uphold, and protect the sanctity of life and property. Given this function, the Christian understands that government is ordained of God, and so Christians, first of all, are called to respect whatever it is that God institutes and ordains. For God sake we are called to be model citizens. We are told to honor the king or be obedient to the civil magistrates. That doesn’t mean a slavish obedience to the civil magistrates. There are occasions on which Christians not only may, but must, disobey the civil magistrates. Anytime a civil government requires a Christian to do what God forbids or forbids them to do what God commands, then the person must disobey. But our basic posture toward government, according to the New Testament, is to be submissive and obedient citizens of the state.”

The office of President is not and has never been about the person occupying it. The framers of the Constitution specifically crafted the government so that it was not about the man (or woman) who held the office. The authority lies in the office itself, not the person. President Obama’s chief speechwriter, Cody Keenan said, “The office of the presidency is way bigger than the man.” That is why we have had forty-four successful and smooth transfers of power for over 240 years.

So, if you cannot bring yourself to respect President Trump, you can at least respect the office he holds. This respect is something we render to “Caesar” because that is what God has commanded and is, in fact, what our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did when he told Peter to pay his taxes to Caesar. And Jesus is God. When a soldier is given orders, it does not matter what he thinks of his commanding officer or even the Commander-in-Chief. He is obligated to carry out what he has been instructed to do. Even with Mr. Trump as President, you are obligated to obey the laws of the land, to pay your taxes, and to give all government authority the respect they deserve.

The problem with people on this earth is sin. And Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell.

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 are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following 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!

10 Ways President Trump Can Help Black America; 10 Ways Black America Can Help President Trump, Part 2 (Revive the Family, Revive the Church, Awaken the Nation, O Lord #295)


Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.”

Proverbs 24:6 says, “For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.”

Proverbs 13:10 says, “Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.”

Proverbs 12:15 says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.”

As President Trump begins his time in office, the Lord has led me share some practical and biblically-based ways in which he can help black America as well as some practical and biblically based ways black America can be of help to him.

So far, we have named the following:

1. President Trump Can Help Black America by Setting a Godly Example
2. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Praying for him

Allow me to share with you another way Trump can help black America and another way black America can help Trump.

— Donald Trump Should Not Circumvent the Legitimate Leadership of the Black Community Rather He Should Reach Out to Them Respectfully and Individually

Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.”

Proverbs 24:6 says, “For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.”

Proverbs 13:10 says, “Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.”

Proverbs 12:15 says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.”

Matthew Henry said, “The bad omen of a kingdom’s ruin is that there is no consultation at all or no prudent consultation for the common good. Councils are necessary for the operation of the government; two eyes see more than one; and mutual advice is in order to mutual assistance. The sign of a kingdom’s prosperity is a multitude of counsellors who see their need for one another, and act in concert and with concern for the public welfare. In our private affairs we shall often find it to our advantage to take advice from many. If they agree in their advice, our way will be the more clear; if they differ, we shall hear what is to be said on all sides, and be the better able to make a decision.”

It would be easy for someone in President Trump’s position to think and to act as though they know what to do about every situation that presents itself. However, the wisest man who ever lived — King Solomon, who received his great wisdom directly from God — states several times in his Proverbs that a wise person listens to counsel. In fact, here he says a person who listens to counsel is counted as wise. No political leader knows all there is to know about the people he serves — certainly no leader elected in a country as diverse as America. Therefore, it would behoove Mr. Trump to listen to the counsel of the legitimate leaders of the black community (and all communities in the U.S.).

It is no secret that President Trump had trouble attracting black supporters. This is partly because he did not try to win legitimate black leadership to his cause. Some believe it is probably because he did not know who those leaders are. If the president wants to be taken seriously in the eyes of the black community, he must make a strong effort to reach out to and involve these leaders in his administration as they plan strategy to improve the lives of black people and America as a whole. Mr. Trump has already been burned once by getting hooked up with someone who presented himself as a legitimate black leader but who was not who he claimed to be and certainly one who does not have any influence with black people.

I am a conservative Christian who happens to be black. With that said, over the past nearly forty years, I have had to try to help conservative Christians who happen to be white understand you cannot “make black people.” And what I mean by that is: you cannot choose a black person and get them to say everything you want them to say and think they will influence the black community. It doesn’t work that way. You cannot just take any black person and make them into what you want them to be, put them on a pedestal, and think other black people are going to follow suit. It doesn’t work that way. One of the principles of leadership expert John Maxwell is: if you want to lead large numbers of people, one needs to use the legitimate influencers in that community. He said, “True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed, or assigned. It comes only from influence, and that cannot be mandated. Just because someone has a title, doesn’t mean that person is a leader.”

Mr. Trump and his team should be careful not to make the mistake that some conservative whites have made repeatedly — promoting and pushing forward the black people whom they feel comfortable with as “leaders.” It doesn’t work that way. The black community will see these people as “Uncle Toms” or “token” blacks who are just there for show or to make largely white groups feel good about themselves. We believe you can be all Christian, all black, and all conservative and still not be perceived by black people as an Uncle Tom or a token negro. Quite frankly, once you get that tag, you’re not any good to the black community or to the white community.

We know that President Trump has the capacity to engage strong, influential leaders because he has proven this in his selection of advisers and cabinet appointees. Some of the leaders and influencers President Trump should reach out to include: Dr. Tony Evans, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Dr. A.R. Bernard, Coach Tony Dungy, Rev. Anthony Evans, Bishop Clement W. Fugh, Bishop Harry Jackson Jr., Alveda King, Rev. Fred Luter Jr., Roland Martin, Rev. Dwight McKissic, Pastor James T. Meeks, Dr. Jerry Young, Dr. Ralph Douglas West, Dr. DeForest Soaries, Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, Pastor Jeffrey Johnson, Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin, Dr. Allen McFarland, Pastor Miles McPherson, Dr. Kenneth Ulmer, Bishop Paul Morton, and others. These are people who have diverse opinions on various issues, but they have significant clout in the black community. Dr. John Maxwell also said, “He that thinketh he leadeth, and hath no one following, is only taking a walk.”

— Now, here is the second thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Should be Open-minded and Give President Trump a Chance

James 1:19 says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.” This verse warns us against jumping to conclusions about different situations. Our first instinct upon hearing something that we do not agree with should not be to get angry and call for a march, but to take some time to see the issue from the other person’s point of view. David Guzik said, “We can learn to be slow to anger by first learning to be swift to hear and slow to speak. Much of our anger and wrath comes from being self-centered and not others-centered. Being swift to hear is a way to be others-centered. Being slow to speak is a way to be others-centered. In light of the nature of temptation and the goodness of God, we must take special care to be slow to wrath, because our wrath does not accomplish the righteousness of God. Our wrath almost always simply defends or promotes our own agenda.”

Proverbs 18:13 also says, “He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.” If you jump to conclusions, you will most likely end up in the wrong place. Ralph Wardlaw said, “A man who has only heard a part of a matter is in no position to judge in it, and commits a great folly if he attempts to do so. He does violence to his own understanding — to those mental faculties which enable him to place things side by side and to compare them, and to sift and weigh evidence before he arrives at a conclusion. Such a man often deeply wrongs others. A half-told story often makes the state of matters appear so different from the truth that it is a gross injustice to condemn or justify any person when that is all that is known.”

Yes, many black Americans are upset about some of the things Mr. Trump said during the campaign, some past allegations of discrimination, and some of the assumptions that, justly or unjustly, have been made about his views and possible policies on issues that affect race.

All of that being said, Donald J. Trump is the new President of the United States. And if it be the Lord’s will, he will be the president for the next four and possibly eight years. He will be your president. All of the people who were talking about moving to Canada if Trump was elected are still right here in America because they realize that, even with all of her faults, America is still the greatest nation on earth. There is no wisdom in marching, protesting, and declaring #NotMyPresident on social media. The words of the Serenity Prayer come to mind here: “Lord, grant me the grace to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

This, friend, is a thing you cannot change. Contrary to what Rep. John Lewis said, he is just as much a legitimate president as Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and Abraham Lincoln were.

Black Americans can be a help to President Trump by being open-minded, giving him a chance, and truly listening to him (with the understanding that he simply does not come from the life background that most black people come from). Now is not the time for marching, threats, violence, riots, and saying stupid things like ‘he is not my president.’ Now is the time to step across the lines that have been drawn in the sand, and as Dr. King would say, sit down together at the table of brotherhood and make the best out of an interesting situation.

————–

In closing, allow me to remind you that the only way America’s problems can be truly solved is through Jesus Christ, God’s Son who came to this earth two thousand years ago. The problem with people on this earth is sin. And Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell. Billy Graham once said, “I do not believe that any man can solve the problems of life without Jesus Christ.” No matter what problems you are facing, you can only find the solution for your problems in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please allow me to show you how you can accept Him as your Savior today:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20, “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

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

3. 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.”

4. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. 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.”

With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. 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 are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following 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!

10 Ways President Trump Can Help Black America; 10 Ways Black America Can Help President Trump, Part 1 (Revive the Family, Revive the Church, Awaken the Nation, O Lord #294 with Daniel Whyte III)

Over the course of the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump and the black community were by-and-large not the best of friends. Trump attempted to reach out to “the blacks,” but repeatedly stumbled when trying to speak to them directly. Many blacks had no interest in reaching out to him. Some in the black community, the majority of which supported Hillary Clinton, have been tempted to hold a grudge over the election outcome. However, this is not wise. Over the next few days, I want to share with you a few ways the new president can be a help to the black community and a few ways the black community can be a help to Mr. Trump during his time in office based upon the word of God.

1. Donald Trump Can Help Black America by Setting a Godly Example

Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”

The leader of a nation is not only the representative of that nation’s people to other nations, but he is a representative of that nation to God. If the ruler is evil, that is reflected on the whole nation. If the ruler is good, that is reflected on the whole nation. God will reward a leader who is obedient to Him by blessing the nation with peace and prosperity; God will punish a leader who is disobedient to Him by taking away peace and prosperity.

Matthew Henry said, “People will have cause to rejoice or mourn according as their rulers are righteous or wicked; for, if the righteous be in authority, sin will be punished and restrained, religion and virtue will be supported and kept in reputation; but, if the wicked get power in their hands, wickedness will abound, religion and religious people will be persecuted, and so the ends of government will be perverted. The people will actually rejoice or mourn according as their rulers are righteous or wicked. Such a conviction are even the common people under of the excellency of virtue and religion that they will rejoice when they see them preferred and countenanced; and, on the contrary, let men have ever so much honour or power, if they be wicked and vicious, and use it ill, they make themselves contemptible and base before all the people and subjects will think themselves miserable under such a government.”

Donald Trump’s past indiscretions were well discussed during the campaign season. He is a sinner like the rest of us. Quite frankly, it was refreshing to see a candidate own up to his sinfulness and keep on rolling. But, now, he is called to a higher standard of leadership that demands he is beyond reproach. The whole nation and the whole world is looking at him; he should aim to set a godly example before all, particularly now as he claims to be a Christian. We know that he will not be perfect and we know that according to Dr. James Dobson, is a baby Christian, and because of that he is not going to become a Billy Graham overnight. But at his age, he can make up his mind to live a certain way for the good of the country and the good of the world. Now that he is the president of the United States and the undisputed leader of the free world, he cannot engage in what he called “locker room talk” or locker room activity from this point on to the day he dies. If, by God’s grace and with God’s help and with the help of Christian brothers who surround him, he sets a godly example, he will give no one in the nation the ability to point the finger and use him as an excuse for their bad behavior.

Now, here is something black America can do to help Donald Trump:

1. Black Americans Can Help President Trump by Praying For Him

1 Timothy 2:1-2 says, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”

The Bible clearly commands that we should pray for our governmental leaders—all of them, whether we agree with them or not. There are two reasons why we ought to pray for President Trump.

First, because he needs God’s guidance. President Obama needed it. President Bush needed it. President Clinton needed it. A wise leader will seek God’s guidance as Solomon did. The least we can do is pray that God would lead him, guide him, direct him, and give him wisdom to make the right decisions.

The second reason why we ought to pray for President Trump is because prayer reminds us of who is really in control. Ultimately, our trust does not reside in President Trump or any other president, but in God. Whatever concerns you have about the new administration, you can take them before the Lord in prayer and leave it there.

David Guzik said, “Early Christians were often accused of undermining the state because they claimed a higher Lord other than Caesar. Yet they would point out that they supported the state by being good citizens and by praying for the emperor, not to him. In the previous verse Paul said that we should give thanks for all men, and here he connects the thought with those who are in authority over us. We should give thanks for those who are in authority, because God has ordained government in society to keep order. The early church leader Tertullian explained: “We pray for all the emperors, that God may grant them long life, a secure government, a prosperous family, vigorous troops, a faithful senate, an obedient people; that the whole world may be in peace; and that God may grant, both to Caesar and to every man, the accomplishment of their just desires.””

————–

In closing, many people have the view that the only way America’s problems can be solved is through the government. These people place their hope and trust in the government for solutions to the difficulties that our country faces and that they themselves personally face. However, there is Someone else who we should look to for the solutions to all of our problems.

His name is Jesus Christ. He is God’s Son who came to this earth two thousand years ago. He came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell.

Billy Graham once said, “I do not believe that any man can solve the problems of life without Jesus Christ.” No matter what problems you are facing, you can only find the solution for your problems in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please allow me to show you how you can accept Him as your Savior today:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7: 20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

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

3. 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.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. “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.” (Jesus Christ, John 3:16).

With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 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 are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following 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 It is Not God’s Will for You to Become President like Trump, What Should You Do? (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 386)

TEXT: John 21:17-23:

17. He [Jesus] saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

18. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19. This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

20. Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

21. Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

22. Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

23. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

———-

Today, I am continuing the daily Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign sermon series, which is aimed at sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with unbelievers and reminding Christians, in this important election year, to keep the main thing the main thing — and that is reaching unbelievers with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and praying for their salvation, for the problem in America is not only disobedient presidents, politicians, and people, but disobedient pastors, preachers, and parishioners who have refused to obey the Lord’s Great Commission which is to, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” and who have refused to obey God’s repeated commands to “pray without ceasing” for unbelievers, believers, and political leaders. Yes, you should pray for the right candidate to win; yes, you should vote for the candidate that the Lord gives you peace about voting for. But, don’t get caught up in it like the world does. Nothing much is going to change until people get saved and get their hearts right with the Lord.

This campaign is inspired by the following three verses: 1 Corinthians 2:2 which says, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” Acts 5:42 which says, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” And 2 Timothy 2:4 which says, “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”

This series is not for Christians necessarily. However, I do hope you are one of those saints who still loves to hear the “Old, old story of Jesus and His love” — As another hymn says, “For those who know it best Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.” This series is primarily for unbelievers, so they can hear and understand the Gospel and be saved from sin and the punishment of sin which is hell. This is message number 370.

George MacDonald said, “Doing the will of God leaves me no time for disputing about His plans.”

There are many people in America today scratching their heads saying to themselves if Barack Obama (with a name that sounds like Osama) and if Donald Trump can be president, why can’t I be president? Well, because it’s not God’s will for you to be president.

After Jesus publicly restored Peter to the ministry and commanded him to “Feed my sheep,” there must have been a deathly silence around the seaside fire where the rest of the disciples were eating breakfast. What does one say after witnessing such an emotionally-charged scene? The exchange between Peter and Jesus was like a private moment that the other disciples would have been embarrassed to witness. When the moment is over, Peter looks around realizing that everyone else was watching and listening.

We do not know why Peter asks this question, but it’s possible that he was trying to shift attention away from himself. He asks of John, “Lord, and what shall this man do?” ‘You’ve told me that I’m going to die. What about this man?’ It is a natural thing to wonder about others when you are going through or are about to go through something distressing. ‘What about this person? It looks like they never have any troubles. Am I the only one who has to suffer?’ Jesus’ response to Peter is rather sharp, almost a rebuke. He says, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Peter, having been informed about God’s plan for his life, naturally wondered what the future held for his friend John, the disciple whom Jesus loved. Jesus sharply rebuked Peter for being curious about God’s will for another’s life: What is that to you? You must follow Me. Some disciples can be easily distracted by unnecessary questions about God’s secret will; as a result they neglect God’s plainly revealed will. God’s plans for Christians vary and His reasons are not often made known. Peter was to commit himself to God’s plain commands to him.”

God has given each of His children plain commands. Some of these commands, such as those included in the Bible, are universal. Others are specific to each individual. Often, when we see someone not following God’s universal commands or not following a similar specific command to the one that we are following, we are tempted to pause and wonder, ‘What about them? Why aren’t they going through what I’m going through? It doesn’t look like they are following God, yet they are being blessed.’

In such instances, Jesus’ response to us is the same, ‘What is that to thee? Follow thou me.’ The only Christian walk that you can control is your own. There is no use in wasting time fretting over what others are doing or are not doing. You do what God has called you to do and let God take care of everyone else.

Horatius Bonar wrote:

Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
However dark it be;
Lead me by Thine own hand,
Choose out the path for me.

Smooth let it be or rough,
It will be still the best;
Winding or straight, it leads
Right onward to Thy rest.

I dare not choose my lot;
I would not, if I might;
Choose Thou for me, my God,
So I shall walk aright.

God has chosen a path for each of us. What remains to be seen is whether we will walk in that path. You can begin walking in God’s path for you by trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Here is how you can receive Him into your heart and life 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 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!

How to Use Presidential Terms to Accomplish Great Things in Your Life Instead of Whining and Complaining

new-year-goals


“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 3:13-14

One of the things we see in the Old Testament is how that people dated events in their lives by the number of years the king had been in power. For example, Daniel says, “In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me after that which appeared unto me at the first…” I believe that, instead of whining and complaining, we ought to use every president’s term as a time marker to accomplish things that God wants us to accomplish in our own lives. Below are some ways that you can get started doing that.

Try to learn a good quality from the outgoing president and the incoming president that you can apply to your own life.

For example, from President Obama, you can learn how to make your family stronger. You can also learn how to believe that the impossible can be done. For him to become the first black president certainly seemed like an impossible situation, but he believed he could run the greatest country on earth and he did.

From Donald Trump, you can learn how to raise your children to be responsible adult leaders. You can also learn the power of hard work and doing what it takes to be a winner in life.

Instead of whining, complaining, and worrying about the state of affairs in the world, decide what you want to do with your life in the first four years of the new president’s term and set some goals so that you can accomplish it.

Here are some things that you can do over the next four years:

1. Get a degree
2. Start your own business
3. Learn Spanish, Chinese or some other language
4. Write a book and publish it
5. Go on a mission trip to another country or in your own community
6. Learn to understand the stock market
7. Develop an exercise regime and stick to it

Now, I did not vote for President Obama for certain reasons, but instead of whining and complaining, I chose to set some goals and accomplish several things during his eight year term. God has allowed me to get four advanced degrees and I am working on my fifth degree, a Doctor of Ministry degree as his term comes to a close.

Also, instead of whining and complaining pray for the president and his family and for their guidance and safety. You can also lovingly and respectfully address certain issues you are concerned about to the administration and do what you can to help change some of those issues.
