LISTEN: The Coming Joy of Seeing Jesus Again, Part 7 (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 273 with Daniel Whyte III)


Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: John 16:26-27:

26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

———-

Today, I am continuing the daily Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign sermon series, which 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. This is message number 273.

Clovis G. Chappell said, “As the saints of God meet together Jesus still manifests Himself. And seeing Him, there comes to us a new joy and peace, a new sense of the purpose and worthfulness of life. Seeing Him there comes to us a new power for battle and for conquest.”

In these two verses, Jesus extends His revelation of how His disciples and all believers will be able to communicate with the Father after His Ascension. When we think of Jesus’ activity in Heaven, we normally recall those passages in Romans 8 and Hebrews 7 which speak of Jesus interceding for us. But, as we look at Jesus’ words in this text, we find that we ourselves are given direct access to the Father in the new day of grace following Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection, and ascension as we are now able to pray in His name.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary states, “The coming new day would give the disciples intimacy with the Father and clarity of understanding. The disciples would have direct personal access to the Father by the name of, that is, through Jesus. Jesus would no longer need to pray on their behalf since they could ask for themselves.” Importantly, we should remember that “this truth does not negate the promise of Christ’s intercessory work in overcoming a believer’s sin. However, the disciples were now in a personal love-and-faith relationship with the Father. Only children have this privilege of access to their Father.”

Jesus says, “For the Father himself loveth you…” He utters these words before He goes to the cross. He is telling His disciples that they can go to the Father because the Father loves them of His own will. Someone once said Jesus did not go to the cross to make God loving; He went to the cross to show us that God is loving. God the Father did not make Himself the enemy of man. It was man who made Himself the enemy of God, building up the wall of sin between himself and God who is holy.

Our sinfulness necessitated the coming of a mediator who could stand between us and God. That is why Jesus says the disciples could approach God “because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.” While it is good to know that the Father loves us even in our sinful state, it is futile to approach God in prayer or otherwise without being in love with Jesus and believing that He is, in fact, God and that He came from God.

We do not have to convince God to listen to or answer our prayers. He wants to hear from us and answer us. We are His children, and, He is more eager to answer than we are to ask. Just the knowledge of how God sees us is enough to bring joy to our hearts in any situation. John Newton said:

I asked the Lord, that I might grow
In faith, and love, and every grace;
Might more of His salvation know,
And seek more earnestly His face.

T’was He who taught me thus to pray
and He I trust has answered prayer,
but it has been in such a way
it almost drove me to despair.

I hoped that in some favored hour
At once He’d answer my request,
and by His love’s constraining power
Subdue my sins, and give me rest.

You can take part in the joy that Jesus fulfilled in His disciples by receiving Him as your Savior today. Here is how.

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says 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.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. 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.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 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!

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.”

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

LISTEN: The Gifts God has Given to His Church, Part 14 (Revive the Family, Revive the Church, Awaken the Nation, O Lord #238 with Daniel Whyte III)

A series of homilies on Ephesians.

A homily is “a short talk on a religious or moral topic; a usually short sermon; a lecture or discourse on or of a biblical theme.”

I am sharing a verse-by-verse series of short messages on Ephesians (as well as other passages of Scripture) specifically targeted at reviving families and encouraging and exhorting husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, and children to do what God has commanded them to do, for if the church is to be revived and the country is to be awakened, the family must be revived first.

TEXT: Ephesians 4:12-13:

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

—-

Oswald J. Smith said, “Any church that is not seriously involved in helping fulfill the Great Commission has forfeited its biblical right to exist.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Do you know what’s wrong with modern preaching? It’s missing three things: one, it has no intensity; two, it has no majesty; three, it has no eternity.”

In their book, The Ten Greatest Revivals Ever, Elmer Towns and Douglas Porter share with us: “Several from Sister Hutchins’ church attended the meeting along with others in the shabby neighborhood north of Temple Street. Most of the congregation was composed of domestic servants and women who took in laundry. As word of the home meetings spread, the crowds grew. People came to hear a preacher who had never spoken in tongues tell how the blessing of God would come soon when all would have this unique gift.”

—-

Today, we continue looking at the end result of every believer using their spiritual gifts “for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”

Paul says that we do this “till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God…” As we look at what the ‘knowledge of the Son of God’ means, it is important to remember that knowledge in the Bible is not just knowing something mentally. Rather, it is knowing connected with meaningful action. Jesus does not allow us to become more familiar with Him just so that we can say that we know Him better. The more we get to know Jesus, the more we should be becoming like Him.

Some might ask, How long will it take for a local church to attain fully to the knowledge of Christ? If we look around today, it seems as though we are far from that goal. Alexander MacLaren said, “Paul gives no clear definition of the time when one body of Christian believers should have attained to the unity of the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, and the question may not have presented itself to him. It may appear that in view of the immediate context he regards the goal as one to be reached in our present life, or it may be that he is thinking rather of the Future, when the Master ‘should bring together every joint and member and mold them into an immortal feature of loveliness and perfection.’ But the time at which this great ideal should be attained is altogether apart from the obligation pressing upon us all, at all times, to work towards it. Whensoever it is reached it will only be by our drawing ‘nearer, day by day, each to his brethren, all to God,’ or rather, each to God and so all to his brethren.”

Our goal must be to learn to live like Christ and to love like Christ. In so doing, we will be moved to obey Christ and to exercise our spiritual gifts in His service. As we draw near to Him, He will reveal more and more of Himself to us, and we will be able to live in the knowledge of the Son of God both here and in the hereafter.

Fanny J. Crosby wrote:

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.

There are depths of love that I yet may know
Before Thee face to face I see;
There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
Before I rest in peace with Thee.

Let’s pray.

Now, if you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, please keep in mind that the Bible says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Just pray and ask Him to come into your heart and He will. I will be sharing more on the matter of salvation in the next segment of our service which starts in about 5 minutes.

New Study Finds that Police Brutality Leads to Thousands Fewer Calls to 911

A young girl walks between police in a park in Milwaukee, Monday, Aug. 15, 2016. Following a night of violence that left half a dozen businesses in flames, the Milwaukee police chief expressed surprise at the level of unrest that erupted after the fatal shooting Saturday of a black man by a black officer. "This was, quite frankly, unanticipated," Chief Edward Flynn said Monday, two days after the worst of the rioting hit the Sherman Park neighborhood on the city's economically depressed and largely black north side.

Black Americans are less likely to dial 911 immediately following, and for more than a year after the highly publicized assault or death of a black person at the hands of police. That’s the conclusion in “Police Violence and Citizen Crime Reporting in the Black Community,” a study to be published in October’s American Sociological Review, the official publication of the American Sociological Association.
