Daniel Whyte III’s Salvation Testimony

Evangelist Daniel Whyte III was born into a very religious family. He was brought up in the church, and on occasions he took part in the church activities. As Daniel got older, he adopted a life of fast living, drinking, rock music, and partying. While he increased in his life of sin and degradation, he developed a deep hatred for religion and preachers, including his own father. His hatred grew to the point that he had vowed to many of his close friends that he would never be a preacher.

At the tender age of seventeen, Daniel left home and started working as a trainer for a restaurant chain across the states of North Carolina and northern South Carolina. During this time, his life of wickedness and rebellion intensified. Daniel Whyte was on the broad road to a devil’s hell. But by the gracious providence of God, he was led to sign up to join the United States Air Force. He signed up on August 15, 1979, just a month before he turned nineteen years old.

At that time, Daniel Whyte did not know what was happening in his life, for he planned to continue in his sin. But after three and a half months of the Lord dealing with his hard heart, one cool Wednesday evening, around 8:30 P.M., December 19, 1979, a young man, by the name of Michael Lewis, came to his dorm room and showed him the “Romans Road” to salvation from the book of Romans in the Bible. Sad, but true, this was the first time Daniel Whyte had heard a clear, understandable presentation of the Gospel, even though he was raised in the church.

On that memorable night, December 19, 1979, Daniel Whyte received the Lord Jesus Christ into his heart, and was marvelously Born-again. Three days later, he was on the street corners of New Orleans in the rain and cold, preaching the glorious Gospel that had just saved him, and he hasn’t stopped since. He has gone on to travel and preach in 43 states and in 25 foreign countries. Through his ministry, there have been thousands of professions of faith. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

The Mission of Gospel Light Society (GLS) is to turn many from darkness to light in America and around the world, through a clear presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through understandable principles that will aid in the spiritual growth of new Christians through literature, videos, and other multimedia.

Gospel Light Society is a global evangelistic ministry that seeks to present the Gospel to all people, in every language, around the world by any means necessary. People all over the world need to hear about the love, peace, and joy that only comes through Jesus Christ. For many people, they are not free to practice their Christian beliefs in their country. For others, they do not feel comfortable in a public place of worship. Because of this, millions of people search for God on the internet. In many languages, GLS shares the Gospel of Christ and helps individuals grow in the saving knowledge of Jesus by connecting them with a church or a home Bible study group.

Gospel Light Society International and GLM Omnimedia Group LLC have a network of over 1,000 Christian news sites which contain the preaching of the Gospel and Christian discipleship teaching in every country of the world and in every major city of the world. BCNN1 is a part of that network. Please click here to view some of those sites.

About the Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign

Here is the original statement that was written for the Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign right before the first of over 1,000 sermons was preached on January 1, 2016:

The daily Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign sermon series 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.

Now, once the first 367 sermons were preached and the 2016 election was over, the mission statement was added to and Daniel Whyte III kept on preaching:

If you think a new president being in office is the only thing needed to save America and “make America great again,” you are woefully deceived. The church must follow through and 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 to, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,” and who have refused to obey God’s repeated command to “pray without ceasing” for unbelievers, believers, and political leaders. Pray for the president, but don’t get caught up in the political happenings like the world does. Nothing much is going to change until people get saved and get their hearts right with the Lord.
