Welcome to the How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #9. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.
Jeremiah 50:13 says, “Because of the wrath of the LORD it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues.”
The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Babylon sinned in proudly destroying Judah. God will judge any nation that can rejoice and be glad as it pillages His inheritance, frolicking like a heifer and neighing like stallions. He vowed to disgrace Babylon by making it a desert uninhabited, and completely desolate. The once-great city will be so thoroughly destroyed that all who pass by will be horrified and scoff at her wounds.”
A plague means anything that afflicts or troubles; any contagious epidemic disease that is deadly; any of various calamities sent down as divine punishment.
A.W. Pink said, “The wrath of God is His eternal detestation of all unrighteousness. It is the displeasure and indignation of Divine equity against evil. It is the holiness of God stirred into activity against sin.
According to New York Times, Florida Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne of the River at Tampa Bay Church Arrested for Violating Safer-at-Home Order by Holding Sunday Services.
According to Reuters, the Evangelical Megachurch Christian Open Door Church Set a Coronavirus Time Bomb in France With 2,500 Confirmed Cases Linked to It.

Exodus 20:9 says, “Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:”
Dave Ramsey said, “As a young entrepreneur I often tried to manage results. I would do things like try to get sales revenues up or try to get team morale up or get profits up. I finally realized that results are generated by activities. If I manage my activities then the results I want occur. If my sales team makes more calls, has a better product, and serves customers better, the natural result is increased revenues. If we watch expenses like a hawk, creating a team culture that hates unnecessary expenses while we increase revenues, the natural result of those activities is increased profit. If I want team morale to be up I need to engage in activities like being very careful with how each team member’s situation is handled, and the result is higher morale. Be careful in your management of your time and your team’s time that the activities you engage in are the ones that cause the result you want. Don’t work on the symptom; attack the problem that caused the symptom.”
Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.
First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”
Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 18:8: “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” 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!
