  1. The gospel by which we're SAVED. We're under Paul's ministry today. Therefore we're not under the law of the old testament. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)(1) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the GOSPEL (good news) which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (2) By which also ye are SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain (self). (3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED for our SINS according to the scriptures; (4) And that he was BURIED, and that he ROSE AGAIN the THIRD DAY according to the scriptures.

    And that takes us back to 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. Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) (8) For by GRACE are ye SAVED through FAITH; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the GIFT of GOD: (9) NOT of works, lest any man should boast. So it's only by GRACE that we are SAVED not by works. JESUS did all the work and gave us GRACE (unmerited favor) as long as we have FAITH (believe) in the DEATH, BURIAL, and RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ for SALVATION (trust in his BLOOD ATONEMENT). That's the gospel. JESUS said, Ye must be BORN AGAIN to enter into the kingdom.(accept Jesus as your SAVIOUR) 

    READ, UNDERSTAND, BELIEVE (from the heart by FAITH) and be SAVED

  2. Someone close to me had been a torn in my side for a very long time and yesterday they made a comment that the old me would have reacted to. I just ignored them and while driving to a friends house, God spoke to me and told me this person was only a distraction. This video affirmed that. I am healing, I am being restored, I am in my season of my more than enough and this person is trying to cause me to lose my focus. Instead of praising and giving thanks to God, their distraction is meant for me to lose my joy and turn my attention towards them. Far be it from me. This person is not my enemy and not my focus!! Thanks for this message Steven!! I refuse to let them steal my light and take my joy away! They will not ruin my day!!

  3. I finally left a 5 year abusive relationship a few months ago and recently so many things keep getting thrown onto me and it's like no matter how hard I try something goes wrong and causes me to be defending myself to my family who allowed me to come stay till I could get on my feet with my babies almost making me give up and go back to my abuser but after watching some of your preachings I realized the devil is using them to distract me so I get discouraged and give up going back to my abuser will only give him what he wants and what hes been trying so hard to get me to do give up he knows I won't kill myself because I have my children so hes trying his hardest to push me back into the hands of my abuser like he was able to in the past bc he knows that I'll pick my kids having a roof over their heads even if it means being with someone who hurts me and kills my spirit and comes between my faith I would put them above myself to make sure they have a place to live and this time I don't want him to win I just pray God gives me a way to get a roof over their heads without having to depend on a family or anyone else so I won't be in constant fear of my children not having somewhere to live.
