Make A Stand – Pastor Nick Cassidy – Times Square Church – 03.17.2019

David

It is time to make a stand. We must understand the season we are living in and receive the encouragement and strength of the Holy Spirit to continue to fight. Sometimes we must make choices that appear difficult in the natural, but when we acknowledge the power of God the simple gesture of obedience is our only path forward. There is an onslaught of evil in this generation that vigorously opposes Jesus Christ. We all know it, but will we stand knowing that God is standing with us? How long will we remain cowardly, fearful, and hypocritical? Will we retreat with the crowd? Or will we pray? Will we do all to stand? Will we follow Jesus? Will we be sent into the harvest?

And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a great victory.

2 Samuel 23:11-12

America And Its Children Need Deliverance – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 03.10.2019

Demon

Our generation is sleepwalking into an eternity without God. When they confront some of the church they are unable to find the deliverance and healing they desperately need. An encounter with Jesus, however, is the only thing powerful enough to confront the darkness of this generation. When all the powers of the world are aligned against the cross of Christ, God will raise up a standard for the glory of His name. When God speaks the word of deliverance, when God breathes the Holy Spirit, and when the Lord’s power is made manifest we must be ready. We must be serious. We must be desperate. Either there is a spiritual awakening in America or we will go into unspeakable darkness. Call out to God. Not on our watch! We must be obedient to the Lord in this moment. Don’t let another day go by without crying out to God and drawing near to Jesus.

And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”

Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.

Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Matthew 17:14-21

It’s Time To Go Through Your Open Door – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 03.03.2019

Cornelius

In the pivotal moment when the Lord broadened the scope of the Gospel to include the Gentiles as recipients of the Holy Spirit we find a powerful lesson. God has opened a door for us and has invited us to walk through it. It is a door to freedom, to a calling, to a life full of meaning, and to a hunger for the things of God. A flood of evil is here in our generation, and if we will not bear the cross and receive in the name of Jesus the power to touch this generation we will regret it for all eternity. We must be thirsty for the faith and strength that only God can provide us. Lord help us to see the door and to walk through it for the glory of your name! Raise up laborers for the harvest that is due to the King of Kings in this generation.

So Cornelius said, “Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your alms are remembered in the sight of God. Send therefore to Joppa and call Simon here, whose surname is Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea. When he comes, he will speak to you.’ So I sent to you immediately, and you have done well to come. Now therefore, we are all present before God, to hear all the things commanded you by God.”

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.

Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.

Acts 10:30-47

Lustful Pray-ers – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 02.24.2019

Gethsemane

There is a harvest in this generation that God deserves waiting for us to press in and to cry out for it. Are we seeking first the Kingdom of God? Can we say that there is not strife and division in our ranks? Are we fully surrendered to the will of God? Jesus will always be faithful. He knows what is best for us in all cases. God has given us a calling to seek Him and His righteousness. Are you not tired of fighting in your own strength? Are you not tired of the powerlessness in the body of Christ in this generation? Are you not tired of the onslaught of wickedness? Turn your prayers and seeking to the Kingdom of God. Surrender all at the foot of the cross and receive the free gift of salvation and the Holy Spirit. Lord help us! We believe for the miraculous salvation of many millions. Raise up your people and send forth laborers into the harvest!

Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not comefrom your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:

“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

James 4:1-10

Head To Foot – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 02.17.2019

Honesty

It is exhausting to attempt to be holy in our own strength. We must give it up and simply be honest with God! He already knows the thoughts we deal with, the struggles we face, and live in high definition. We deal with thousands of thoughts each day, and we must follow the scriptures to take them captive. Right after being miraculously delivered from Saul, David had a thought of defeat catch in his mind. He then fled into the land of Goliath, and worse yet he brought hundreds of people along with him. When we obey our thoughts instead of God we can be moved in the wrong direction and even take others with us. However, when the power of the Holy Spirit gives us the boldness to be honest we see freedom. In Ephesus the new Christians openly confessed their sins and cast into the fire their occult books and pagan connections. We will continue to fight these mind battles as long as we are in the flesh, but we must fight in the power of God and be honest and open one with another in maturity and faith.

And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.

Acts 19:18-20

The Mark Of The Godly – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 02.10.2019

DayOfTheLord

Malachi writes that in the last days the hearts of the children will turn to the fathers and the hearts of the fathers will turn to the children. Acts 15 records how Paul viewed Mark as unfit for service. Paul’s zeal led him to break with his friends, and he wasn’t able to extend grace to Mark. Over the course of his walk, Paul encountered Timothy, his spiritual son, and the Lord continued to transform Paul’s heart. Finally, toward the end of his life, Paul calls upon Mark to be brought again as valuable for ministry. The tenderness of God and the mercy of Christ had taken hold of his heart. When Jesus wants to move in our lives, He will continue to present opportunities even when we fail. We must press in to the Lord now and ask for our hearts to be turned to those around us. If you have ever written someone off or been written off by someone, then today is the day of reconciliation!

“For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“That will leave them neither root nor branch.
But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,
Says the Lord of hosts.


“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,

Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With the statutes and judgments.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

Malachi 4:1-6

What Difference Can I Make? – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 02.03.2019

Nehemiah2

The burden of God must come into our heart the way is came into Nehemiah’s. The walls are down physically, morally, and spiritually in our nation and in the lives of so many. Brothers and sisters when you ask if you can make a difference please remember that what matters more is what difference God can make. There must be a rediscovery of the promises of God in our generation. If we will continue to close our eyes and ears to the plight of the lost – even in the church – then we will be abdicating our obligation to obey the Lord that His will should be done. We must accept responsibility and cry out to God! The name of Jesus will be lifted up. Will we be the ones to do it or will our faithlessness and cowardice lead to victories for the deception promulgated by the enemy. God forbid!

The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah.

It came to pass in the month of Chislev, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the citadel, that Hanani one of my brethren came with men from Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews who had escaped, who had survived the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. And they said to me, “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.”

So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.

And I said: “I pray, Lord God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You and observe Your commandments, please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father’s house and I have sinned. We have acted very corruptly against You, and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses. Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations; but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to the place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.’ Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.”

For I was the king’s cupbearer.

Nehemiah 1:1-11
