Pastor Stephanie (Heaven On Earth Ministry)
When you know you will never lose the right standing before God, u can continue living without fear
U know u r protected because the devil cannot hit your heart when you have the breastplate of righteousness
For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
There is Word for everything we preach
Stand is very important. Right standing.
God righteousness is the ability to stand before God without fear, without inferiority, without condemnation, without shame
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
Right standing is important
If you don’t understand right standing you will stand in fear
There is so much blessings in the righteous person
You can make a mistake and still get up
If we say we can lose our righteousness, you are saying Adam is greater
Jesus came to die to have divine exchange
Whatever righteous work we do cannot make us righteous
By faith are you saved through grace. Not by works
You cannot work for your salvation
The gospel is the message of the cross
Gospel is good news
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
Romans 1:16-17 NKJV
In sharing and preaching this gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed
The scripture is the Word of God. The hoy spirit convict based on the Word of God
When we quote John 3:16, is it real to us?
Don’t ever say you know it already. The Holy Spirit can give you more revelation
The bible is different from our History book
This is Life
My Word are spirit and life
God’s Word will keep on growing and more understanding
Thrilled is more than excited
Each time you share the gospel, are you thrilled?
I refuse to be ashamed of sharing the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved—the Jew first, and then people everywhere!
Romans 1:16 TPT
The 5 senses can be explained in a good way
Have an encounter with the Word of God
This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith , to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!”
Romans 1:17 TPT
The whole christian life is a life of faith
You need to know what Jesus did on the cross
For the Anointed One has sent me on a mission, not to see how many I could baptize, but to proclaim the good news. And I declare this message stripped of all philosophical arguments that empty the cross of its true power. For I trust in the all-sufficient cross of Christ alone.
1 Corinthians 1:17 TPT
Why preach the gospel?
Preach gospel, not christianity or religion
When we present to the people they need to do something, change religion, than Christianity is just another religion
For the message of the cross is foolishness [absurd and illogical] to those who are perishing and spiritually dead [because they reject it], but to us who are being saved [by God’s grace] it is [the manifestation of] the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18 AMP
God already know you will be saved
For it is written and forever remains written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise [the philosophy of the philosophers], And the cleverness of the clever [who do not know Me] I will nullify .”
Where is the wise man (philosopher)? Where is the scribe (scholar)? Where is the debater (logician, orator) of this age? Has God not exposed the foolishness of this world’s wisdom?
1 Corinthians 1:19-20 AMP
God’s way is not man’s way
God’s wisdom and world’s wisdom are completely different
Man’s wisdom is as long as i am good, God will accept me
God’s wisdom is there is no one good. All has sin and come short of the glory of God
For since the world through all its [earthly] wisdom failed to recognize God, God in His wisdom was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached [regarding salvation] to save those who believe [in Christ and welcome Him as Savior].
1 Corinthians 1:21 AMP
Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God
It all started from the wisdom of God
[This is] because the foolishness of God [is not foolishness at all and] is wiser than men [far beyond human comprehension], and the weakness of God is stronger than men [far beyond the limits of human effort].
1 Corinthians 1:25 AMP
Just look at your own calling, believers; not many [of you were considered] wise according to human standards, not many powerful or influential, not many of high and noble birth.
1 Corinthians 1:26 AMP
But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty].
1 Corinthians 1:27 AMP
When Jesus is living in us we are no longer original man.
God has to humble the hero to become zero before He could use them
The weak things of the world
To shame the things that are strong
God has selected [for His purpose] the insignificant (base) things of the world, and the things that are despised and treated with contempt, [even] the things that are nothing, so that He might reduce to nothing the things that are,
1 Corinthians 1:28 AMP
The higher calling is called by Jesus to preach to this world
We are defined by God’s wisdom
so that no one may [be able to] boast in the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 1:29 AMP
Christ Jesus is the wisdom of God
Everything is in Christ is in His Word
Redemption in Christ
In Him we were made righteousness
Everything starts from wisdom in the garden of eden
We get back the wisdom by receiving Jesus Christ
How to preach the gospel?
U go out to preach the gospel cos you know you are called
You are responding to the call that God calls you
Charity is from the word ℓσνє
When we go out to preach the gospel is not just to meet the need of the people. It is higher calling
God found you worthy to send you out and entrust you to preach the gospel
Take this gospel and preach the Word
Jesus by His obedience. Jesus obeyed God
His purpose was to go to the cross
Today we don’t need to die for people. Following the Lord may require sacrifice but it is not law
How to preach the gospel?
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor . He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives , And recovery of sight to the blind , To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].”
Luke 4:18-19 AMP
There is an anointing
Jesus did not come on His own initiative
Our obedience is to Him and not to men
Then he said to me, “This [continuous supply of oil] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel [prince of Judah], saying, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of whom the oil is a symbol],’ says the Lord of hosts.
Zechariah 4:6 AMP
‘What are you, O great mountain [of obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who will rebuild the temple] you will become a plain (insignificant)! And he will bring out the capstone [of the new temple] with loud shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ”
Zechariah 4:7 AMP
It is the Holy Spirit. Preaching the gospel is a spiritual thing
God gives you His power
You going in the power of God
The devil is defeated
God is with you
But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”
Acts 1:8 AMP
Only God can change a person’s heart
When you see a crooked leg, you might think will it become straight or not?
Pastor Stephanie saw it in her leg and the holy spirit asked her to rebuke and pray the leg be straighten and her leg was made straight
Holy Spirit told her she will see that when she pray for people
Whatever that is crooked will be made straight
