The Story of Big Tom Taking the Whipping for His Classmate Little Jim (Gospel Light Minute X #396)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #396 titled, “The Story of Big Tom Taking the School Whipping for His Classmate Little Jim.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

Rev. A. C. Dixon, the Baptist preacher who was born in the mountains of Virginia, relates the following incident:

Years ago, there was a certain school in this section of the mountains which no teacher could handle, and none lasted very long. The boys were so rough that every teacher resigned.

A young gray-eyed teacher soon applied for the position. The old school director looked him up and down, and then said, “Young fellow. Do you have any idea what you are getting yourself into? An awful beatin’ from the students! Every teacher we have had for years has had to take it.”

The serious-minded teacher replied, “I’ll take the risk.” Continue reading “The Story of Big Tom Taking the Whipping for His Classmate Little Jim (Gospel Light Minute X #396)”

Take Advantage of God’s Grace Because His Wrath is Coming (Gospel Light Minute X #393)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #393 titled, “Take Advantage of God’s Grace Because His Wrath is Coming” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

You need salvation because of your sin. The Bible says in Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” You are not only a sinner by birth through Adam, but also by your choice. Romans 3:10-12 says, “…There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

As a sinner, you are without God and without hope. Sin brings death and eternal separation from God. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” The Bible says in Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Jesus Christ told the story of a rich man who was cast into hell after he died. This rich man is still in hell this very moment, almost two thousand years after Jesus spoke of him. In ten years, this man will still be in hell. A thousand years from now, he will still be in the burning pit of unquenchable fire. He is damned for all eternity. As a sinner, you will share the same fate, unless you accept God’s gift of grace.

Let Me Tell You About the Stars and Stripes (Gospel Light Minute X #351)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #351 titled, “Let Me Tell You About the Stars and Stripes.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



“Tell us something about the Stars and Stripes!”

The young man thus addressed was preaching the Gospel in the public square of an American city, and the remark quoted was that made by a scoffer who had just left the hotel on the opposite side of the square.

It is often the case that an interruption at an open air meeting only serves to increase the number of listeners. It was so in this instance, and as the crowd quickly gathered around, the preacher stopped.

Facing the scoffer, he said: “Tell you something about the Stars and Stripes? I will, and with pleasure, for we read about the Stars and Stripes in the Bible. Continue reading “Let Me Tell You About the Stars and Stripes (Gospel Light Minute X #351)”
