Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society, Responds to Otis Moss III's Letter to Black Pa...
When President Barack Obama announced his support for homosexual marriage, many pastors and Christian leaders took issue with that stance and stated that they could not vote for a president who endorsed a view that they believed was contrary to God's Word. Numerous ministers also expressed their disappointment and shock in the President who previously claimed that he believed marriage was a "sacred union" between a man and a woman.
In the wake of that reaction, the pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, IL, Rev. Otis Moss III, wrote a letter to a minister expressing his view that black churches should still support the President in the November election. He later released a version of the letter online along with a video of him reading a portion of the letter to his congregation. In his letter, he accuses black clergy of hiding "from true dialogue with quick dismissive claims devised from poor biblical scholarship" and urges ministers to stand behind Obama despite their disagreement with him.
Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society, has just published an open letter in reply to Otis Moss III's letter. He states that he found Moss' letter to be "troubling in light of God's Word." He goes on to refute Moss' argument by pointing out seven flaws in his letter and encourages all pastors to stand on what the Bible clearly states about homosexuality. He goes on to state that the "President did not exercise good judgment when he endorsed homosexual marriage." Whyte also says that the church should "love all people who are engaged in any sin including the abomination of homosexuality, but should not abandon God's word and endorse their sin."
Daniel Whyte III: "The wonderful thing about prayer is that you can do it right now." (The Prayer Motivator Minute #488)
Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
Our prayer motivator quote today is from Jonathan Edwards. He said, "It is God’s will through His wonderful grace, that the prayers of His saints should be one of the great principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ’s kingdom in the world. When God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people; as is manifest by Ezekiel 36:37. and it is revealed that, when God is about to accomplish great things for His church, He will begin by remarkably pouring out the spirit of grace and supplication."
Daniel Whyte III said, "Many people don't pray because they don't want to obey." (The Prayer Motivat
Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God for today is Nehemiah 1:6 which reads: “Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned."
Our prayer motivator quote for today is from Andrew Murray. He said, "The majority of Christian men and women who pray to a Living God know very little about real prevailing prayer. Yet prayer is the key that unlocks the door of God’s treasure-house. It is not too much to say that all real growth in the spiritual life – all victory over temptation, all confidence and peace in the presence of difficulties and dangers, all repose of spirit in times of great disappointment or loss, all habitual communion with God – depends upon the practice of secret prayer."
Daniel Whyte III said, "Prayer is a flesh-crucifying experience." (The Prayer Motivator Minute #228)
Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is James 4:8 which reads: "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you."
Our prayer motivator quote for today is from Walter J. Chantry. He said, "If you have never felt your soul poured out before the Lord with a consequent exhaustion, it is doubtful whether you have advanced far in the school of prayer."
Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #152
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 11:23-31
Daniel Whyte III shares a special message explaining three wrong views of the Lord's Supper (Communion) and the correct, Biblical view of the Lord's Supper. The three wrong views of the Lord's Supper are: the Roman Catholic view (transubstantiation), the Lutheran view (consubstantiation), and the Reformed (Calvinist) view. The correct, biblical view is the Memorial view.

Thomas Brooks said, "Christ is a jewel worth more than a thousand worlds, as all know who have Him. Get Him, and get all; miss Him and miss all."
This is Daniel Whyte III with Just Jesus, a podcast designed to celebrate the birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the impact He has on the world, and the salvation He offers for all people. This is episode #63. The aim of this podcast is to encourage you to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to begin to live your life according to His Word.
Our Just Jesus passage from the Word of God today is John 1:18 which reads: "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."
Our featured Just Jesus quote today is from John Pulsford. He said, "Christ is in all His redeemed, as the soul of their soul, the life of their life. He is the pitying heart and the helping hand of God with every needy, praying spirit in the world. He is the sweet light of the knowledge of God that breaks in upon every penitent heart. He is not only with those who believe in Him and love Him, but also with those who neither believe in Him nor love Him, that He may be to them also Jesus their Saviour. The Christ of God is in thy heart, waiting and aiming to get the consent of thy will, that He may save thee. Wherever man is, there also is Christ, endeavoring to free him from the law of sin and death, by becoming Himself the law of the spirit of his life."

TEXT: Daniel 9:1-8
We are continuing our look at the prayer that Daniel prayed for the nation of Israel as they were on the cusp of being delivered from their time of exile. Daniel chose to be an intercessor for his people. Many of them had probably lost faith in God and were discouraged about their present situation. Many of them probably thought that God had forgotten them and that they would remain scattered in foreign lands. However, because Daniel was close to God, he took it upon himself to bring his nation before God in prayer. He took it upon himself to stand in the gap for his people.
In our last message, we saw three things about Daniel's prayer for his people.
1. Daniel took time to prepare to pray.
2. Daniel kept in mind God's awesomeness and faithfulness
3. Daniel openly confessed that his people had sinned.
Right now, we are going to zero in on verses two and three of our text and look at three key points that made Daniel's prayer so powerful and that made Daniel a very effective intercessor for his people.
1. Daniel's prayer was based on the Word of God. In verse two, Daniel says, "I understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem." Daniel's basis for praying for the deliverance of his people was the "word of the Lord" that had been given to Jeremiah.

TEXT: Daniel 9:15-19
A devotional book tells the story of a man who was traveling across the United States. He stopped for gas in Montgomery, Alabama, got back in the car, and drove for five hours before realizing he had left someone behind -- his wife. He couldn't call her because she had left her cell phone in the car when she had gotten out to stretch her legs. So, the man called the police and asked them to help him get in touch with her. When he arrived back in Montgomery, the police asked him what happened that would cause him to leave his wife behind, and the man admitted with great embarrassment that he just hadn't noticed her absence.
Now, most of us couldn't imagine what would cause a man to not notice his wife's absence for five hours. But, the truth of the matter is, we are not much different in our relationship with God. As the hymn says, we are "prone to wander" away from Him. That is why, in Scripture, God warns us not to forget Him or His Word. In Deuteronomy 8:11, speaking to the nation of Israel, He says, "Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day."
Today, as we return to the topic of standing in the gap and being intercessors for God's people, we are going to look at the matter of remembrance in Daniel's prayer for his people. As you may recall, on last week, we talked about three things the church needs to do in order to fulfill its duty as God's representative on Earth.
Today, we are going to look at how Daniel employed the power of remembrance in his prayer and three things the church needs to remember as it prays.

TEXT: Job 21:15: "What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?"
We are in a series of messages titled "Praying Through the Bible: A Series on Every Passage and Verse Regarding Prayer in the Bible". The purpose of this series is to encourage and motivate you to pray to the God of the Bible. We highlighted each of these over 500 verses and passages in the new Prayer Motivator Devotional Bible. So far, we have done 37 messages in this series.
This is message #38 titled "Is There Profit in Prayer?"
Today, as we return to the book of Job, we come across a question that I am sure many people have asked. Job asks this question in the midst of a discussion about the seeming prosperity of those who do not serve God. These wicked people ask, 'Who is God that we should serve him? Why should we pray to him? Is there even any profit in prayer?'
If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that at times, some of us have wondered the same thing: Why should I keep praying? What good is there in spending this time in prayer? The devil will sometimes come to us as we pray, and remind us of all of the things we could be doing instead of praying. And, if our prayers are not getting answered as fast as we want them to be answered, we are tempted to throw up our hands and say, 'What's the use?'
So, taking this question from the book of Job, I want to give you tonight three reasons why prayer is profitable.
The authors that we are featuring today are: Greg Laurie, author of "Road to the Resurrection"; Daniel Whyte III, author of "The Unsung Heroes of Easter"; and Max Lucado, author of "Six Hours One Friday: Living the Power of the Cross"

Praying Through the Bible #95-B
TEXT: Daniel 9:9-23
We are continuing our mini-series on the prayer that Daniel prayed for the nation of Israel as they were on the verge of being delivered from their time of exile. Daniel, who had always been a faithful prayer warrior, now in his old age, intercedes for his people. He didn't have to. He wasn't required to. But, I believe God called him to the task and he obeyed.
Right now, we are going to take a look at three things we must do as we seek to stand in the gap as intercessors.
1. We must pray with an understanding of who God is. In verse nine, Daniel prays: "To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him..." Last week, we talked about how we ought to appeal to God's mercy when we intercede for others. The reason why Daniel did this for the children of Israel is because he had an understanding of the nature of God.
2. We must pray with the determination to live righteously before God. Daniel sought to live out Godly principles in his life and we see this desire in his prayer. In verse 13 he prays, "As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth."
3. We must be ready to receive God's answer to our prayer. In verses 21-23, Daniel writes: "whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision."

This is message #37 titled "When It Seems as Though All is Lost, You Can Always Look to God"
On last week, we looked at the topic of prayer from a passage in the book of Job, particularly from the words of Bildad, one of Job's friends who had come to comfort him in his time of despair. As you might recall, the Bible tells us that Job was "the greatest of the men of the east." He had 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 donkeys, and a large household, consisting of seven sons, three daughters, and multiple servants. He was also "blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil." However, because the devil wanted to cause Job to turn his back on God, God allowed the devil to test Job by causing all of Job's material possessions to be taken from him or destroyed. His ten children also lost their lives, and Job was struck with a severe disease. God had allowed the devil to take everything away from Job except his own life.
