Welcome to the How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #25. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.
Jeremiah 50:13 said, “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.”
Matthew Henry said, “The country of Babylon shall be depopulated and lie uninhabited: It shall be wholly desolate to such a degree that every one who goes by shall triumph in her fall, and, instead of condoling with them, shall hiss at all her plagues. Thus the former ages of Christians may justly be confounded and ashamed to see how unlike them the latter ages are, and how wretchedly they have degenerated; and no sin brings a surer and sorer ruin upon persons, or people, than apostasy.”
Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”
According to Reuters U.S. coronavirus deaths increased by a record number for the second day in a row, rising by at least 2,371 on Wednesday to top 30,800.
According to Bloomberg 1-in-7 New Yorkers May Have Already Gotten the coronavirus.
According to NBC Another 5 million people filed jobless claims last week, bringing total to almost 22 million in one month.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”
Dave Ramsey said, “Our championship team is no accident. We have intentionally built a culture, a value system, and operating principles that cause us to win. The vast majority of the plays in the playbook are from our mistakes. We screwed up, that screwup brought us pain, and we vowed to never get hit that way again. Making mistakes and learning from them is crucial to winning. Learning from the mistakes of others is less painful. Henry Ford said, “Those who never make mistakes work for those of us who do.” It is this spirit that built America. If you can relate or want to relate, let it show you how to win.”
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, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.
But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.
The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.
Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.
Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.
And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.
The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you 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!
