LETTER #31 of “LETTERS TO MY YOUNG ADULT CHILDREN AND TO A WOKE, DECEIVED AND UNLOVED GENERATION” (Letter 31) by Daniel Whyte III, Author of the National Bestselling Books: “Letters to Young Black Men” and “Letters to Young Black Women” First written over 30 years ago.
Dear Danita, Daniel, Danni, Danyelle Elizabeth, Danyel Ezekiel, Daniqua Grace, Danae, Danielle Tekeela, Duran, and Kywaizia:
I trust you are doing well in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose birthday we celebrate this month and that you have had a wonderful December 1st as I have had, by the grace of God.
As you know, we did not do much throughout the month of December other than pray and witness for the Lord, but one thing we always did on Christmas Day was, read the Christmas story and have a Christmas Service, and so, by the grace of God for this month I am just going to share with you the Christmas story from the Word of God as a reminder and celebration of all the Christ-honoring Christmases that we have had in the past.
The Christmas Story from the Word of God—the Holy Bible: Luke 1:1-7:
1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
My loving Christmas Devotional “Text” is Luke 11:9: “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
I cannot emphasize enough to each of you children the importance of praying without ceasing and the importance of reading the Word of God each day. As you know, we are reading privately the Chronological Bible from December 1st, 2023 through Thanksgiving Day of 2024, if the Lord tarries His coming and we live. Meriqua Whyte and I plan on reading day one, which consists of three chapters. The first three days of the Chronological Bible are posted on Blackchristiannews.com (BCNN1.com). It would be spiritually and mentally healthy for you to join us in reading the Chronological Bible along with the continuation of the Standing Between the Living and the Dead Devotional Services, which Daniqua, Danyel Ezekiel, and Danyelle still help produce.
Everyone, remember, if something bad has happened or there is something you need to tell me concerning any of the children, do not let it grow and fester before you tell me about it. Everyone act like adults, step up, and tell the truth no matter how you may feel about anyone in the family. Tell the truth, no matter how bad the situation is. And remember, if Danyelle would feel safer and more comfortable here, and she is asking you to come back here, let her do so.
Danita, Daniel, Danni, Danyelle Elizabeth, Danyel Ezekiel, Daniqua Grace, Danae, Danielle Tekeela, Duran, and Kywaizia, I love you all, and I am praying for you all. Please pray for me as well.
Love God and Jesus Christ first.
Love, Papa second.
