    Psalm 24:1
    the earth is the lords and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein

    Hebrew 10:4 for it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins

    Isaiah 10:2

    ro rob the needy of justice; and to take what is right from the poorof my people that widows may be their prey and that they may rob the fatherless

    ecclesiates 12:13

    let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.

    let go and let God because God knows everything after all these programs. something like that was then and this is now. Say it again, that was then and this is now. i know you know about this. And thank you Lord for that you know everything in Jesus name, Amen.

    I would like to know why Steve recommends that the couple get married before the baby is born. I have heard him give this advice before.

      That’s a good question. My husband and I got married before our daughter was born (6 months before). We were not living together prior to that. When we got married, we were able to build a home together and settle in as a married couple before she was born. I think it was beneficial to all of us because we were at that point in right standing with God before bringing the baby into the world; instead of still living in a sin that could easily be rectified. I don’t know if we would be married today if we chose to just live together and pretend longer than necessary, still trying to be blessed by God while living wrong. Anyway…

      May not be like that for everyone else though.
