TEXT: Acts 17:24-28

24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.


As a reminder of what this series is all about, allow me to finish sharing with you once again “The Forethought” of “The Lost Souls of Black Folk and White Folk”:

As you may know, I preached the Gospel for 367 days straight during the tumultuous 2016 presidential campaign. I also preached the Gospel for 100 days straight in between Barack Obama’s two terms as president in 2012. The campaign is called the “Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign.” Since that time, I have continued preaching the Gospel nearly every day—totaling now over 1,000 Gospel, Christ-centered messages—throughout the Trump years as a symbol to the church on how we need to get back to the main thing, and that we need to keep the main thing the main thing which is to love all people, witness to all people, pray for all people, and keep ourselves unspotted from the world by confessing sin daily and repenting of sin.

One of the reasons I am sharing this with you is because before I became a believer in Christ, I was determined to make my life’s work the work of fighting against the injustices against black people. But then, I met Jesus Christ on December 19, 1979 in an Air Force dorm room around 8:30 that night, and He dramatically changed my life and my perspective. And even though He gave me a burden for “my brethren according to the flesh,” that is black people, because I was raised up in the black Baptist church and in the black Pentecostal Holiness church, because my dad was ordained as a Baptist preacher and my mother was ordained as a Pentecostal Holiness preacher, yet I was lost and on my way to hell and had not heard the Gospel for nineteen years of my life and I knew that others in the black community were misled as well, so God put in my heart to reach my brethren according to the flesh “ with a clear presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, it was a white, independent, Baptist church plant in Mississippi of all places where I heard a clear presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and my eternal soul was saved from a burning hell to a Heaven that I do not deserve because of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Later, God began to show me a vision that all people needed the Gospel. That was when He led me to preach the Gospel in nearly every state in the United States including Alaska and Hawaii and over twenty-five foreign countries.

If you think a new president being in office is the only thing needed to save America and “make America great again,” you are woefully deceived. The church must follow through and 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. Pray for the president, but don’t get caught up in the political happenings like the world does. Nothing much is going to change until people get saved and get their hearts right with the Lord.

Using how God — the same God who changes not — dealt with His chosen people in the past (and based upon First Corinthians 10:1-12), this book will show God’s chosen people of today, the lost souls of black folk and white folk, how to find their soul and their way again. Understanding that “judgment must begin at the house of God,” it is then and only then that God’s people, black and white together, can lead America and the world pass the problem of the color line, along with other problems, closer to where God wants us all to be while living on this earth.


If you are a Christian listening today, here are three things you need to do:

1. Confess and repent of your own sins. You already know what they are.

2. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ to repent of their sins and get back to their first love

3. Pray for souls to be saved, and do your part by witnessing to the lost.


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, 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 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 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 and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail 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.
