Steve's journey learning about spiritual warfare got serious when a non-Christian man came to him with a problem: he said he had demons on his property. Steve didn't know how to respond, so he silently prayed as the man talked. After the quick prayer, Steve had a strange verse pop into his head from Deuteronomy 6 that instructed God's people to put Scripture on their gates and doorposts. So Steve & this non-Christian man who was desperate for help put Bible verses on ordinary tent stakes. Then they placed these stakes in the ground on the corners of this man's property, read the verses out loud, and prayed for God's protection. Everything changed. The man confessed Jesus as Lord, was baptized, and is now living faithfully in peace and safety as a Christian. Others heard about this event and copied this idea, and Spiritual Warfare Stakes were born (also available from Steve and on Amazon). So many people began to call Steve with amazing stories of good things that happened after placing this symbol of their faith around them that Steve researched the biblical connections to this idea and put these amazing stories together in this second edition of "What Are The Stakes?" God markers on the land are throughout the Scriptures: Goshen was set apart, blood on the doorposts protected the faithful, there were markers around Mt. Sinai, piles of stones marked connections to God, altars honored God, and the list goes on and on. It's all about faith. Jesus could do few miracles where there was no faith. Prayers without faith accomplish little. But Jesus noticed, honored, and rewarded great faith with healing. The woman with the issue of blood had no reason to think that touching the hem of Jesus' robe would heal her, but she decide that it would, she acted on her decision, and she was literally healed. That's the principle behind the placing of these spiritual warfare stakes around your home, your property, your office, your hotel room, or your loved ones. Take a leap of faith and read these amazing God-stories, and you, too, will be placing Bible passages around your land and your family. Watch what God does after you do, and your life will never ever be the same. Lord, I pray for every person who reads this. Open their eyes to Your mighty power today and to the strength that lies in the words from the Bible. No evil force can stand against You and Your powerful Word. Use this to Your glory. In Jesus' Name, amen.
How fun we are still here at the National religious broadcasters convention on the convention for Dobson's assembly, people, statements, passion and use it to build the kingdom and I am was the capital, who I think my goodness somebody a man after my own heart. By this passion. In a word might be spiritual warfare, but nonetheless like I think a great way to start out this like I'm sitting there with a bunch of 10 states of these are no ordinary tent stakes and maybe could tell a story about the state okay.
It's a bizarre story is cancer high in the distinct RI alighted upon a feminist think is a dumb I am.
I would say Sam Kenwood with respect.
I was a raise an extremely conservative Christian home, which I'm happy about and proud of but I'm sort of the last guy you should hear miracle stories from but I was writing my second book which is called my search for prayers. Satan hates and I was I meant the cover to think that our error and yeah I know that I know the artist to do that he is that great guy Bill Osborne but anyway I was I was right in this book and I wanted to share prayer success stories from the 30 years I owned a technology company and as I started to write the stories are blessed how active God was in my life, may help me through so many things I prayed a weird prayer.
I pray rear prayers I like and this one was Lord, please give me something to put in this book that really truly helps people. That was my hearts desire. And that's when things started exploding. One of the leaders at it at my home church called and said Steve is true that your next book is on spiritual warfare nested yet what he said I got a buddy up in trying to bring to Jesus Christ for 25 years. The guys been mad at God about some things that happened long ago and I wasn't making any progress. But right now he has a spiritual warfare problem and I'm thinking maybe this is our chance to convert. Would you be willing to talk to Cheryl thing help or not. So I go meet Bill and I look at Bill and say what, what's the spiritual warfare probably got. He looked to be serious and says I have demons on my property and getting ready to commit suicide. I just wanted to talk to you first. Talk about pressure.
So I started what I call panic prayer begins to describe all the reasons why he thinks her statements on his property and I just I'm just panic is a look at what to say. I don't how to help this guy. He's going to kill himself is not a Christian. Please tell me what to say.
As soon as I prayed a strange verse in Deuteronomy chapter 6 popped in my head where it says you are living in a land full of evil.
By the way, I think were living in a land full of living in a land full of evil. Be sure and put my word on your gates and doorpost, and the Jews didn't say all that just symbolic you know it's it's it's a real thing when it's not a magic box. It's a symbol of their covenant relationship in connection with God. And so I'm trying to think how to apply this in this modern world, and it click nested bill. Don't take yourself yet? Some bizarre Bible full of bizarre stories of talking snakes walking on water resurrection. Why don't we put Bible verses on some tent stakes and hammer them all away in the ground on the four corners your property and read the verses together and pray for God to make it stop and he looked at me. He said okay I'll try in the stories too long to tell now, but when we did that everything changed.
He said the atmosphere changed.
I can say is attitude changes next week. You want to be baptized. He and his wife and all of a sudden he wants to be a Christian than Jesus Christ.
So because I'm ready, so conservative and an unthinking director story not look weird that that's my literal thought process. My wife six red math teacher.
She's in the kitchen cooking supper and the phone rings and she answer the other teacher. She knows the true states that focus on spiritual worker. Yet, what I got talk to him right now.
Right now Noah brings yeah moreover what is it she had been on a mission trip with her church overseas and now for the first time in her life. She's having terrifying demonic nightmares every night at exactly 3 AM on the clock and she's scared to go to sleep is going on for six weeks. You want to tell anybody afraid that thinks is crazy, just as what I do in a supply never heard of demonic that what was described and when she described. I later found the Bible verse that was almost word for word what she was saying never saw that before it's Job for 13 to 74, 13 to 17 NLT says it came to me in a disturbing vision at night when people are in deep sleep dear get me in my bones symbol a spirit swept past my face. My hair stood on end. That's Joe, for that's what she's describing and I just looked at her nested well Victoria I don't know how to help really exceptional bills going to kill himself be put Bible verses on tent stakes and everything changed Christian. I'm so should go to Army-Navy bus mistakes reverses how Hoberman is going to move. This was taken with her so she stand them in her apartment.
In the course of apartments just read the verses that led to board what about anything because in these numbers make it stop. Jesus then she would sleep and never had another and then try to make a long story short, the event the idea sort of exploded. I got invited to stake out a public school where they were having a lot of problems and began causing all the problems died suddenly of a heart attack is in his 30s and people start causing a state how much you states so stakes go a matter of how long will they help are part of the will, though they won't verses that you sent me verse go all the way the ground up on the properties.
That's where I'm laughing at all these questions and telling my men smog about it on Thursday mornings and finally they looked at me and they said Steve we've been thinking about this and you know you walked away from a good salary. Now your ministry have no salary. You got some books but maybe this is wait God's way of giving you something that helps people and helps you to do.
We think you want to sell stakes in a fist of God you can't stop it, and if it's not from God. You can't make it successful. You not good enough sense. So they taught me into selling stakes in one of the guys had a machine and make thermal labels attached to them that are very durable. They last 10 years and the weather so I started selling way more stakes in books and people started calling me was story after story, we were about to get divorced and respect at her house and of peace came over our house and now were reconciled and there were things which we think that our church building in a given went up and the elders meetings are shorter because the problems went away can't make this stuff up and so finally I got a call from the camp and company in New Jersey rows order the stakes and put the stickers on them and they said Sir we just called to tell you we just canceled your last order for 700 more stakes have anymore. We don't know what you're doing with all the states, but would you please find somewhere else that can you shock me and I just said okay in two days later I get another phone call this guy goes his estate. Yes, you got put Bible verses on tent stakes and yes, sir, that's me, plastics manufacturer and would like to make them for you to make the cut for the Dallas Cowboys game to look on the bottom of the cups as words we do that, but building a mold or having a mold belt that has raving in the mold.
