OtO 354: The Promise Of God – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! The promises of the Lord are true, faithful, and eternal. The time it will take between now and the fulfillment of all of God’s promises is finite, but the time we will have with the Lord after they are fulfilled will be infinite. This is impossible for us to fully grasp, but we are justified in relying on the Word of God and on His promises. God will prove Himself faithful in all things. The next time you encounter a promise of God in scripture, please take some time to reflect on it. Each and every one of God’s promises can radically transform our lives if we really understood and applied them. The scriptures in this broadcast are from 1 Thessalonians 4.

OtO 352: Jesus Is Victorious – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! In this season when Christians celebrate Jesus’ cross, atoning death, and vindicating resurrection let us always be reminded of the astonishing nature of what He has done for us. Jesus is absolutely and irrevocably victorious, and nothing will ever remove Him from His throne. Let us run the race that is set before us with all the strength and faith God will provide brothers and sisters. Jesus deserves a harvest in this generation. Let us all be a part of it, and when it comes time for us to go into His Kingdom let us be greeted with an abundant entrance. The scriptures in this broadcast are from Psalms 22 and 1 Peter 1.

OtO 351: Not Many Wise – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! In this episode we explore the dynamic of salvation where God focuses on the weak, the poor, and the feeble as the primary recipients of the Gospel. This is antithetical to the style of religion that is engineered by man, and it is not simply an opiate for the masses constructed to preserve dominant power hierarchies. Rather, it is the truth, of infinitely more worth than any scheme the brightest mind of man can concoct. The inaccuracies in the prevailing worldview of our day are fundamentally misguided. We must be content to be counted among those who are looked down upon as superstitious and backwards. The scriptures in this broadcast are from 1 Corinthians 1.

Why Exactly Do We Want An Awakening – Pastor Carter Conlon – TSC Prayer Meeting – 03.16.2021

Why are we asking for a spiritual awakening in this generation? Is it just to preserve ourselves and the lukewarm gospel of prosperity that has been present in American pulpits for several decades? At a certain point in time the Lord will defend His own name. Are we tired of the name of Jesus being trampled on and brought low in this generation? Is God able to glorify His name once more in this generation? There is a declaration against the people of God that echoes the taunt of Goliath: you will serve us. Pray without ceasing! Jesus will be glorified!

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”

1 Samuel 17:45-47

Let’s Talk About Sin – Pastor Carter Conlon – TSC Prayer Meeting – 03.09.2021

Sin must be an urgent priority for all Christians. Leaving it unaddressed, even if doing so would spare us some pain, discomfort, or sorrow, is never the right option. All of us must ask the Lord to continually search our hearts. Holy Spirit show us what needs to change, give us the faith to lay it all down before you in repentance, and give us a vision of what we are intended to become. A hallmark of maturity is a greater sensitivity to sin, a greater humility with respect to our dependence on God’s righteousness, and a shortened time frame between awareness of sin and repentance. All of us must adjust in order that our walks with God would be amplified in every way.

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”

Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”

And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

So the Lord God said to the serpent:

“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

To the woman He said:

“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”

Genesis 3:1-16

OtO 346: Time To Trade Up – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! In this episode we revisit the important idea of avoiding foolish and ignorant disputes. Surely in each one of our lives there is a pursuit that we have spent at least a dozen hours on in the past month that is not bearing as much fruit as is becoming the Kingdom of God. Perhaps this are of our lives isn’t bearing any fruit at all. Perhaps it is even a practice that we know to be sinful. In any of these cases, it’s time to ask the Holy Spirit to show us how we can trade up and to take any steps necessary, including repentance, to increase the fruitfulness of our walk with the Lord. The scriptures in this broadcast are from 2 Timothy 2.

OtO 345: Rejoice In Truth – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! In the list of the properties of love often quoted as part of marriage ceremonies, one particular aspect stuck out to me as I was reading through the verses again. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth. How much are we in a state of rejoicing over the truth of the gospel? Is there significance to truth being juxtaposed with evil in this scripture? How can we properly weigh the truth? What dynamic of love is applicable here? Many of these questions come into greater clarity when we consider that Jesus is the truth. The scriptures in this broadcast are from 1 Corinthians 13.

You Didn’t Lose It, You Left It – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 02.21.2021

There is a big difference between losing something and leaving it. When Jesus gave John the letters to write to the seven churches he included an oft-cited comment to the church at Ephesus. They had held fast to many things, but they had left their first love. The implication is that it was deliberate. Somewhere along the line in the decades that had passed since the church was established by the Apostle Paul, the Ephesians had moved away from the potency of their original relationship with the Lord. In this day and age many have walked away from their initial passion for Jesus for any number of reasons. The Lord remains as faithful, loving, and steadfast as ever and earnestly beseeches us to repent and to return. This is no time for mediocrity, confusion, or half-heartedness. Either God is who he says He is or not. Spoiler alert: He is.

“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” ’

Revelation 2:1-7

OtO 343: Arise and Eat – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! So many are looking for a word – any kind of word – to sustain them. The only word that can truly sustain us is the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and righteousness. He will quicken the scriptures to provide you the spiritual nourishment you need. In any hour of discontent or hopelessness, take heed to the messenger of the Lord who came to Elijah saying ‘arise and eat’. Jesus is the bread of life, and we must rely on Him to provide a true word for our lives in every season. The scriptures in this broadcast are from Psalm 123 and 1 Kings 19.
