THERE IS MORE SAID IN THE PODCAST AUDIO THAN IN THE NOTES BELOW
Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #116. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Thomas Constable said “This passage shows how to avoid the consequences of disobedience: submit to God, pray, and repent (i.e, change direction, not just feeling). This remedy is as applicable today as it was in postexilic Israel and in the days of Israel’s monarchy. The promise that God would “heal their land” ties in with His earlier promise to bless the Israelites” land with rain and fertility if they obeyed His commandments in the Mosaic Law. God has not promised specifically to heal the land of other believers who obey His will for them. However, He has promised to bless generally those who do so.”
Leonard Ravenhill said, “Ministers who do not spend two hours a day in prayer are not worth a dime a dozen, degrees or no degrees.”
According to CNN, a new model says more than 410,000 people in the US could die from the coronavirus by January 1. That would mean 224,000 more lives lost in the US over the next four months. If a herd immunity strategy is pursued, meaning no further government intervention is taken from now to Jan 1st, the death toll could increase to 620,000. The death rate could reach 3,000 a day by December.

5 Steps to Simple Homeschooling Planning, Part 2
Study your kids
This might seem obvious, but, you’ve got to study your kids. You need to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Hone in on their passions. Make time for those in your day–that is the beauty of homeschooling!
If you typically follow a more traditional homeschool curriculum or have a kid (or a parent) who just likes to “check the boxes”, I invite you to push your boundaries a bit. Brainstorm some out-of-the-box ideas with your kid. Breathe new life into your homeschool year. It might just be the thing you both need as you continue your journey.
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 any time. 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 in 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! 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.”
If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please email that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.
God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.
