His Tae Bo fitness system has helped millions of people around the world get in shape and feel great. In 1975 he became the first Amateur Athletic Union champion, a title he won five times. The AAU is a multi-sport organization that is dedicated to the promotion and development of amateur sports and physical fitness programs. By age 16, he had earned a black belt in karate and went on to earn a spot on the U.S. Karate team which won 36 gold medals in international competition. He became the captain of that karate team in 1980. A seventh-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, the dominant Korean version of karate, he holds black belts in five other forms of martial arts. He also became the 1984 Massachusetts Golden Gloves Champion and the Tri-State Golden Gloves Champion of Champions.
In 1988 and 1989, while pursuing a career in acting he felt that something was missing in his life. As he continued to become more successful, he said “I was always searching” for something else.
One day a friend suddenly invited him to church. They went together and he was so impacted by the Lord that he “received Jesus the same day.” When his wife, Gayle, saw the change in him over a period of months, she gave her life to Christ, too and their children soon followed. When people ask him his secret to success, he says that it was when he dedicated his life to the Lord that his career took off. His name is Billy Blanks.
This is the “Chief of Sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, and just as Michael Franzese gave her life to Christ, may I encourage you to do the same. The Bible says 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.” If you want to know Jesus Christ today as your personal Saviour as Angela Bassett does, all you have to do is acknowledge and realize that you have done some bad things in your life which are called sin; you have sinned against God. The Bible says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Then believe on Jesus Christ for salvation, and pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will. The Bible says in Romans 10:9, “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.” Romans 10:13 states, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me the following 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.
Until next time…
Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith! God Bless You!
