Apostle Duane Swilley invites Diamond and Kennard Stevens long with his wife, Prophet Deborah to speak about the importance of having level 5 relationships – reaching the world.


Principle: Everything we believe and know starts with level one.

Principle: When in the Word in John 17 it says, “father make us one.” I believe God wants us to share the same heart, His heart.

Matthew 5:8 Amplified

8 “Blessed [anticipating God’s presence, spiritually mature] are the pure in heart [those with integrity, moral courage, and godly character], for they will see God.

Principle: If your heart is not pure, you can’t really see God.

Psalm 24:3-4 Amplified Bible

3 Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place? 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully.

Principle: The mountain is upside down. You got to learn to serve to get to the top. 

Principle: Brothers and sisters, it is possible for us to have clean hands but not have a pure heart.

Principle: A bad covenant will pollute your heart. 

John 3:16-17 Amplified Bible

16 “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him.

Principle: Do you see if you really live and are founded in level one, it makes you fall in love with level five.

Luke 19:17 Amplified Bible

17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant! Because you proved yourself faithful and trustworthy in a very little thing, you shall [now] have authority over ten cities [in my kingdom].’

Luke 19: 1-5 Amplified Bible

1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And there was a man called Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector [a superintendent to whom others reported], and he was rich. 3 Zaccheus was trying to see who Jesus was, but he could not see because of the crowd, for he was short in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead [of the crowd] and climbed up in a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. 5 When Jesus reached the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 

Principle: Out of a whole city with many religious leaders present ,who did Jesus choose to go see… in front of everybody? When you save the world, everyone is blessed! 

Principle: Joseph saved the world, therefore, he saved his family and his people/family.

Luke 19:6 Amplified Bible

6 So Zaccheus hurried and came down, and welcomed Jesus with joy. 

Principle: The world is waiting to receive us. If we come in the right spirit, they will greet us with joy.

Luke 19:7 Amplified Bible

7 When the people saw it, they all began muttering [in discontent], “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a [notorious] sinner.”

Principle: The way many Christians in social media are complaining about the ads, Jesus gets us. He’s washing the feet of sinners. Well, He washed the feet of Judas and Peter.

Luke 19:8 Amplified Bible

8 Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, “See, Lord, I am [now] giving half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anyone out of anything, I will give back four times as much.” 

Principle: The world/Zaccheus immediately responded without being ask to give. The rich young ruler, who knew the Bible all is life, but his heart was far from it.

Luke 19:9 Amplified Bible

9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this household, because he, too, is a [spiritual] son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Principle: Yes, God loves the world. All people are created in the image of God, and thereby receive God’s common grace and provision. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. 

Matthew 5:43-45 New International Version

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Principle: We’ve lost our love to reach the world.

Matthew 9:36 New International Version

36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd

Psalm 100:5 New International Version

5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
