LISTEN: Don’t Settle (The Brother’s Keeper #53 with Daniel Whyte III)

Even Mo’ Letters to Young Black Men
Letter One: Don’t Settle


Daniel Whyte III
Daniel Whyte III

Dear Y.B.M.,

When I was a young man, there was one thing I wanted almost more than anything else. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than me. I wanted to do something that mattered with my life. Although I was having fun partying and living life as I pleased, the thought that came to my mind quite often was: “There’s got to be more to life than this.” More than working a nine-to-five job. More than getting a paycheck. More than living the same, mundane lifestyle that I saw so many other people living.

I looked at the Civil Rights movement, seeing it as a period of history where people did something that was bigger than themselves. I considered becoming an attorney who stood up for the rights of black people in society.

There is a reason why young people have been at the forefront of major political and social movements throughout history. God has put in every one a desire to live a life that counts, to live a life that matters, to do something that matters. The problem comes when many people, as they grow older, decide to settle. They settle for the mortgage, the car note, the job they don’t enjoy, the steady paycheck, and keeping up with the Joneses. They settle for mere existence, and not really living. The only goal they look forward to is retirement.

This kind of life is a waste of the talent that God has given us. God would not put the desire to do something that matters inside of us if He didn’t intend for us to use it as impetus for our future. God has plans for you, young black man. He wants you to live a life that counts. Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works…”

I did not find my true purpose in life until I trusted Jesus Christ as my Savior on December 19, 1979, when I was nineteen-years-old. So, I was still a young man. I thank God that Jesus saved me. It has made all of the difference in the world.

Shortly, after I gave my life to God, He called me to preach. During this time, I also found that I had an interest in words and writing — something that I had not had before. By the grace of God, I have spent the past thirty-six-plus years preaching the Gospel and writing, and I am not ready to stop. I say with the old saints, “I don’t feel no ways tired.” That is the great thing about doing something that matters with your life: it never gets old. It is always fun.

Yours for never settling,

Daniel Whyte III

P.T. (Power Thoughts):

Rick Warren said, “Without God, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope.”

Steve Jobs said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

John Herrick said, “Gideon saw in himself an unqualified, insignificant individual. But God saw someone He could use. God feels the same way about you. He sees potential and value that you might not see in yourself. He wants you on His team.”

Seneca said, “Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing.”

LISTEN: Slavery & the New World, Pt. 6; the Negro Church, Pt. 6; the Reconstruction Period, Pt. 6 (The History of Black Americans and the Black Church #37 with Daniel Whyte III with Daniel Whyte III)


Daniel Whyte III
Daniel Whyte III

Our Scripture verse for today is Colossians 2:9-10 which reads: “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”

Our History of Black Americans and the Black Church quote for today is from Lee June, a professor at Michigan State University and the author of the book, “Yet With A Steady Beat: The Black Church through a Psychological and Biblical Lens.” On the matter of Negro spirituals, he quoted W.E.B. DuBois who wrote: “What are these songs, and what do they mean? I know little of music and can say nothing in technical phrase, but I know something of men, and knowing them, I know that these songs are the articulate message of the slave to the world. They tell us in these eager days that life was joyous to the black slave, careless and happy. I can easily believe this of some, of many. But not all the past South, though it rose from the dead, can gainsay the heart-touching witness of these songs. They are the music of an unhappy people, of the children of disappointment; they tell of death and suffering and unvoiced longing toward a truer world, of misty wanderings and hidden ways.”

Our first topic for today is titled “The Slave Trade and the New World (Part 6)” from the book, “From Slavery to Freedom” by John Hope Franklin.

The Big Business of Slave Trading, continued

During the Seven Years’ War England transported more than 10,000 slaves to Cuba and approximately 40,000 to Guadeloupe. By 1788 two-thirds of all slaves brought by England to the New World were sold in foreign colonies. Naturally the planters in the English colonies objected to their competitors in the New World being provided with slaves by British traders. What the planters did not realize, perhaps, was that the slave trade had itself become an important factor in England’s economic life. If England’s colonies were the foundation of the English economic system, certainly in the eighteenth century the slave trade was an important cornerstone of that system.

Our second topic for today is “The Negro Church: A Nation Within a Nation, Part 6” from The Negro Church in America by E. Franklin Frazier. He writes:

— The Church as an Agency of Social Control, Part 3

There was, of course, moral support for a patriarchal family to be found in the Bible and this fact contributed undoubtedly a holy sanction to the new authority of the Negro man in the family. However, there were more important ways in which the Negro church gave support to Negro family life with the father in a position of authority. As we have pointed out, after Emancipation the Negro had to create a new communal life or become integrated into the communities created by the Negroes who were free before the Civil War. Generally, this resulted in the expansion and complete transformation of these communities. The leaders in creating a new community life were men who with their families worked land or began to buy land or worked as skilled artisans.

Our third and final topic for today is from “The Black Church in the U.S.: Its Origin, Growth, Contributions, and Outlook” by Dr. William A. Banks.

Today we are looking at part 6 of Chapter 4: “Reconstruction and Retaliation — 1866 to 1914”

— THE BAPTISTS (Continued)

Obviously, the ministers who established these local Baptist assemblies were for the most part unlettered. There was no hierarchy or centralized authority. Each church was its own sovereign body; there was not then and is not now any such thing as the “Baptist Church.” This lack of centralization meant that the Baptists were initially not nearly as strong and influential as the better organized AME Church. Nonetheless, with freedom came the organization of larger Baptist bodies or conventions.

LISTEN: “7 Years,” “11 Years,” “20 Years,” “60 Years Old” (Gospel Light Minute X with Daniel Whyte III)

Lukas Graham: "7 Years"
Lukas Graham: “7 Years”

“7 Years” by Danish group Lukas Graham is one of the most popular songs in recent memory. It reached #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and topped the UK singles chart for five weeks. I first heard this song myself when I was driving from Texas to Virginia for my daughter’s graduation and I was trying to stay awake and was flipping stations when I came across this song and was immediately fascinated with this young songwriter’s insight, understanding, and talent on loan from God.


Daniel Whyte III
Daniel Whyte III

The heart of the song (and the reason why it has resonated with so many people) is about a young man reflecting on his brief past life and looking forward decades into the future to old age. Looking at the ages of “7”, “11”, and “20”, Lukas Graham, remembers how his mother told him to make friends so he won’t be lonely, how his father told him to get a wife for the same reason, and how he began to “write songs and stories” as he sought for success and significance in life.

Then, the singer looks forward to the age of 30 when he would have achieved some measure of success, traveled around the world, become a father, but would still be “learning about life” while some of his friends are out “seeking glory.”

Finally, he looks at the age of “60” and wonders whether his perspective on life would have changed by then — would the world still be the place of possibilities that it was when he was young, or will he see it as a cold place? Either way, he hopes to have “a lot of children” who will come by and visit him once or twice a month and remind him that it’s still good to be alive.

The song embodies the wise practice of stepping back from the day-to-day and looking at one’s life as a whole: Where have you been? Where are you going? Where do you want to be in the next 10, 20, or 30 years? Unfortunately, many people never do this, and they arrive at age 60 or older and begin to wonder if they have spent their years wisely. More tragically, many people do not consider what comes after 60, or 70, or whatever age that is appointed for them to die.

As eternal beings, it is wise to consider that too, because the six or seven decades that we spend on this earth are a very small fraction when compared to eternity. Just as a wise person plans for the years and decades ahead, you can plan for eternity as well. Even if you gained success in this world, as Lukas Graham talks about in their song, none of it would matter if you cross from this life into the next only to realize you made the biggest mistake of your life. The Bible says in Matthew 16:26, “What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

God has provided a way for your soul to be saved and for your eternal future to be secure. This way is through His Son, Jesus Christ. The only way we can have a happy eternal future in Heaven is through Him; the alternative is the torment of eternity in Hell. Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins, which are offensive to God, and which, unpaid for, will keep us out of Heaven. Because Jesus shed His blood on the cross, died in our place, and later rose from the dead, we do not have to go to Hell. If we trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we can go to Heaven to be with Him when we die.

If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him today.

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 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.” 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 just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving 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.”

Believe by faith. Share the faith. And keep the faith! God Bless You!

LISTEN: The Judgment of the Living Dead, Part 14 (Second Coming Chapel with Daniel Whyte III)


Daniel Whyte III
Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Revelation 20:11-15

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The Judgment of the Living Dead (Part 14)

In order to fully understand the reality of the judgment of Hell and the Lake of Fire, we have begun looking at the major aspects of Hell. In other words, we are answering the question, What kind of place is the Lake of Fire? There are twelve main aspects of the Lake of Fire spoken of in the Bible. We have already looked at eight of them:

1. The Lake of Fire is a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.
2. The Lake of Fire is a place of outer darkness.
3. The Lake of Fire is a place of various torments.
4. The Lake of Fire is a place of sorrows.
5. The Lake of Fire is a place of unsatisfied desires.
6. The Lake of Fire is a place of hopelessness.
7. The Lake of Fire is a place of bitter memory.
8. The Lake of Fire is a place of no rest.

Today, please notice from the Word of God that Hell is a place where the fire never goes out. In Mark 9:43-44, Jesus Christ said, “If thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into [eternal] life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

In the following verses, He says the same thing regarding two other body parts: “If thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Regarding this passage, The Bible Knowledge Commentary states, “These strong words warn disciples about the danger of letting themselves be led astray. Jesus reinforced the demands of discipleship in hyperboles. If the activity of your hand, an instrument of inward inclinations, causes you to sin then cut it off. Jesus meant a disciple should take prompt, decisive action against whatever would draw him away from his allegiance to Him. The same is true of the foot and the eye, for temptations come through various means. Whatever tempts a disciple to cling to this world’s life must be removed much as a surgeon amputates a gangrenous limb. It is better to be a disciple and to enter eternal life in God’s future kingdom, and to do so maimed, minus earthly possessions that have been renounced, than to be an unbeliever. An unbeliever retains his allegiance to this world, refuses eternal life with God on His terms, and so will be thrown Into hell.”

Five times in these few verses, Jesus declares that the fires of Hell will never be quenched. Jesus is so serious about this matter that He tells us it is better to lose a foot, a hand, a limb, an eye, than it is to enter into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched. If Jesus took this matter seriously, we should too.

Most things on earth, good and bad, eventually come to an end. We can cope with difficult situations because we know that there is an expiration date. Over the past few years, the state of California has suffered through a severe drought. Every year there have been ferocious wildfires, eating up thousands of acres of land, devouring homes and livelihoods, and wreaking damage that costs millions of dollars to repair. But each of those wildfires, no matter how deadly, no matter how monstrous, have been quenched.

But in Hell, there are no fire departments, no hoses, no water hydrants, no helicopters flying overhead to dump retardant on the flames. In Hell, the fire never goes out. John Trapp said, “A child with a spoon may sooner empty the sea than the damned escape from their misery. A river of brimstone is not consumed by burning.”

Hell is, of course, commonly associated with fire. This association began before Jesus’ day as the Hebrew word translated fire in the New Testament is a word that refers to a place outside Jerusalem. This place was the Valley of Hinnom or Gehenna. In years past, heathens sacrificed their children to Molech in this valley, and the Jews viewed it as a cursed location, one where they dumped their garbage and burned it. Fire was always burning in the Valley of Hinnom. Stinking refuse built up, bringing out worms and other insects that fed on trash. It was also a place where people dumped the unclaimed bodies of dead criminals.

Jesus invoked this powerful image to describe the place that He died to save us from. Hell is a place where the fire never goes out. You do not want to go there.

Allow me to share with you how you can trust Jesus Christ for salvation so that you can avoid that awful place.

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 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.” 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.”
