Matthew 16:24

Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. The Cross truly is an ugly thing. We try to pretty it up by turning it into jewelry, decretive wall hangings, memes, and tattoos all in the effort to beautify our relationship to that Cross. Here is the unadulterated and hard truth, we cannot add any sparkle, shine or technicolor to the place of our Lord’s torture and death… nor should we. I am not...

“Church Grace vs. God’s Grace”

Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Message of the Month Romans 11:6, Ephesians 2:8, John 1:17, Romans 5:15-17, Ephesians 1:6-9 Hello, my beloved! It brings me great joy to bring this subject to our teachings. This revelation of Grace that the Lord has given us is radical and life changing. I am a little hesitant to discuss it here because this short teaching cannot do the subject matter justice, but the Lord has instructed me and so I am happy to obey. Here is the opposing dichotomy that we, as a church body, have struggled to reconcile: “I...

Message of the Week: Sept. 28, 2017

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Of all the churches that the Apostle Paul had connection and fellowship with, it seems that he was the most blessed by the Philippian people’s hearts. If you recall this was the only group of believers that tried to support Paul, from afar, while he was on his missionary journeys. Not only did they send him not one but two offerings while he was ministering to the hurting...

Weekly Message September 19

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page 1 Corinthians 9:10b For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. I am writing today to encourage you to increase your expectancy. Your Father wants you to have a desire to see the things you have been working towards in the Kingdom, come to fruition. Even God Himself has this desire and expectancy. When creation was formed He expected man to rule over it, to increase the garden and...

Luke 24:16

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. On Resurrection Sunday two of the disciples were headed to Emmaus, about a 7 mile walk from Jerusalem. As they were walking they were discussing and debating the things of the last fews days, probably trying to make “sense” of things that had transpired. While they walked and debated, Jesus joined them, but He was in a form not familiar to them. Specifically their “eyes” did not know Him. I have always read this verse and implied that God...

Message of the Month: ‘Jesus was MAD!’

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Ephesians 4:26-27, Mark 3:5, Psalms 97:10, Proverbs 8:13, 1 John 3:8, John 2:14-17 Hello my beloved! I know that the title has already caused a new wrinkle in some of your brain’s gray matter, but hang with me. This particular revelation freed me from many bondages that were inflicted on me by my former religious mentality. I also believe there is freedom here for you as well. A religious mind will constrict and halt the work of God in your life. The only thing I can find in searching out...

Message of the Month ‘Perception is Deception’

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page   December 2011 2 Kings 6:15, Genesis 39:2, 1 Samuel 12:7, Acts 9:6, Hebrews 4:15, Matthew 17:2, Matthew 28:17 Hello my beloved! We have all heard the old adage that “perception is reality”. This is actually taught as part of management foundation. It is also one of the primary people relations principles espoused by the best of the best in the world’s system. It is also a potentially devastating belief as a Christian because it takes the finality out of the Word of God. I am here to offer you a different, and potentially revolutionary point of view. Perception is deception. This is going to take a serious amount of explanation so I am asking you to soften and open your heart to this teaching. Let me start with a story that started me on this radical journey. I was involved with a big hubbub in one of the restaurants I managed a few years back. An older black man entered alone and sat at one of the bar seats that we had to order breakfast. He was greeted by his server and then waited patiently for her to arrive and take his order. While he was waiting another young man entered, a white fella, and sat a few seats away at the other end of the high bar. The...

Romans 6:22

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Glorious Independence Day America! Today we rightfully and honorably celebrate our freedom as a nation and as a people. This freedom has been purchased and defended by the strong hands and thick blood of the patriots, soldiers and public servants who proudly salute “Old Glory”. I salute you and your selfless service also. We have also been given an even greater freedom then just what we enjoy...

I was made aware of a recent statistic that affects our live. “Fewer than one in four Americans (24%) now believe the Bible is ‘the actual word of God, and is to be taken literally, word for word,’...

Galatians 5:13 & 2 Corinthians 5:14

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. This is your calling, my dear Beloved! Your calling is to freedom and this freedom is bought and paid for in the atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord humbled Himself and became obedience unto death, even the death of the cross so that we could experience the freedom that the Father intended for His children since the creation of mankind. We were...

Hebrews 5:9

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him The perfection that our Lord Jesus had was from His birth as part of His nature and identity. We could say it like this: Jesus was born-again from His birth. The same perfection is a reality for you and I if we will yield to and become obedient to the God-identity that we have through the new-birth. This new identity and divine reality is more real and powerful then your first...

Message of the Month: Blinded Eyes

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page John 12:40, 1 John 2:11, 2 Corinthians 3:14 and 4:4, Psalms 19:8, Mt 13:13, Ephesians 4:19, Mark 4:3 Hello Beloved! This teaching has been very exciting for me to write, so I hope it is as exciting for you to receive. This has been burning in my heart for years now. I think the potential freedom that can be gained from this revelation is wonderful. Praise Jesus for his anointing embedded in the Word. He is the Word (John 1:1, 14) therefore the Word carries the same burden removing and...

Philemon 1:14

    Pastor Steve Cassell BelovedChurchIllinois.com Beloved Church Page Philemon 1:14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. Paul, the apostle and leader of the move of God that Philemon is submitted to, is writing to him about dealing with the problem of a wayward person who did Philemon much damage. The personal application for you and I would be in the context of how do we deal with people who have treated us with malice and hurt/damaged us with their words or actions. Paul...
