There are two documents that reveal a lot about who we are, the calendar and the checkbook. These reveal two precious resources
we have, time and money.
The Church is turning more into becoming consumers than stewards. People are spending money on things they don’t need with
money they don’t have to
impress people they don’t even like. The checkbook tells us who we worship and what we worship. Tithes are your “thank you note”
Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World
When humanity wants to be its own God and government desires to become “god” to the people, they will attempt to pass laws against prayer. As Christians, we
must not let the window of prayer be closed even for one day. It’s time to pray and press into the power of God because He desires to show us His willingness to
Are you experiencing a season of despair where you find yourself confused about the direction your life is taking? The devil’s plan us to convince you that God
doesn’t hear your cry. On the contrary, it is in our valley experience that we learn more about the depth of God and we realize that what we are experiencing is so
much bigger than we can understand. The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him and it is at your lowest point in your life that He will whisper a profound
secret in your heart.
Jesus must be first in everything, even when it is inconvenient or when it is hard. We are not called to self-gratification and ease, there is a cost to serving God.
As humans, we have this innate ability to shrug off the Word of God. You are bearing good fruit don’t be deviated from prayer and the power that God has placed
inside of you. Stay in the Word and close to the Cross. Don’t go back to the person you left behind. It’s Christ in us that is our treasure and we must bring this
treasure to others.
It is in our nature to want to impress others. The only thing that impresses Jesus is our faith. We only need a small mustard seed of faith for God to do big things
in our lives. We can judge what kind of faith we have by the decisions we make. Faith that amazes Jesus submits to the direction that God has for our life, asks
for the mind of God when we are in fiery trials and turns to prayer and praise until the break through comes. Today we are reminded that God never gives up on
His people. He works with us in every situation.
We are living in an extremely lawless time. Jesus said in the last days lawlessness will abound to the point where the love of many will grow cold. We are in a
spiritual war and it can’t be won by human effort. We must put on the full armor of God to stand against the arguments of Satan that goes against the will and
the ways of God. We can fight the darkness by being a lover of truth. Don’t live in a spiritual halfway house, find the will of God and embrace the full journey
and the full supply of Himself that He gives to complete the journey. Let your cry be, “Lord my heart is open, help me and give me an inner supply of your
power and strength.”
When we pray, the Word of God exhorts us to pray “thy Kingdom come thy will be done.” The will of God is to cleanse the sinner and empower those who desire
to do His will on earth. God gives us everything we need to do what he has called us to do. We are cleansed and commissioned by God to be His ambassadors
here on earth for a divine purpose. The kingdom of God is experienced on earth as it is in Heaven when God’s work takes the preeminence in our heart and we
begin to bring the cleansing and a commissioning of God to others.
Do you find yourself at the border of God’s promises facing giants and obstacles that are hindering you from moving forward? Satan’s objective is to conform us
to the mindset of the world. The enemy has an assignment to keep you from the plan of God for your life. Today it is important for you to understand the victory is
yours because of what Jesus Christ has done for you. The victory was won at the Cross where Jesus defeated the plan of the enemy and He has given us power
to fulfill the plan that God has for your life.
The Word of God will bring God Himself to glory in the people and God will do for us what only God can do. We must never be under the ministry of people that
get there by natural means. The Word should challenge our unbelief and cause us to believe in the supernatural. We must believe that God is for us and is willing
to do in us and through us and for us what only God can do. When you go home today don’t weep, instead determine in your heart to believe God for the
This is a message about Time Square Church and the next thirty years. It is imperative that we become a people who learn to say yes to
God. The eyes of the Lord are going to and fro looking for somebody that He can show Himself strong to. Will you abandon your plans
and your image of yourself and not allow yourself to be hindered by your own sense of smallness? When God opens a door for you will
you go through so that the Kingdom of God can go forward through your life? Say, “Yes”, and God will do the rest.
When a society chooses to obey God they will be blessed, when a society chooses to reject God they will be cursed. God wrote one song about
Himself and the lyrics to this song is, “God is good and His mercy endures forever.” It doesn't matter how dark the times get if you make the
choice to live for God, your life will be protected and blessed by the hands of a loving Father.
Discouragement comes when we begin to lose courage on our forward journey. Sometimes the journey we have crafted for our future
is partly true and partly fiction. We fall into the theological error of “WhatHowWhen” when we know what God has promised us but we
want to tell him “how” and “when” to do it. In the midst of all our discouragement Jesus still comes and reminds us that He will never
leave us of forsake us. Be encouraged, the plan that God decreed for your life is still unfolding and it will happen in God's time and in
God made a covenant that we will be His people and He will be our God. He promises to send His Holy Spirit to live inside of us and guide us
on our journey. Sometimes the climate of the fulfilment of His promise is contrary then anything we expected. When we think about God
fulfilling His promise we understand the only way that can happen is when we bear our Cross and have each other's back in a covenant
community. When God does a work in us he then begins to reach others through us.
God permits what He hates to accomplish that which He loves. God takes no pleasure in our infirmities but He loves the way He
changes us and encourages others through it. God is calling us to search for a deeper healing. He is interested in delivering us from a
complaining spirit, cleansing our heart and healing our soul. Our physical problems are not God's main focus. The Gospel is His focus.
Sin kills, Hell is real, His kingdom can change you and Jesus is your passport.
We are living in a very confusing time, the lines between right and wrong have never been more blurred in the history of our country. As human
civilization advances so does human corruption. This teaching gives us the tools we need to make moral decisions? As Christians, we are
responsible for knowing when and where God's value system and the society's value system part ways. As God's Temple, we must not be
unequally yoked in our environment, behavior and relationships. Today, God wants to fill you with His presence and His power so you can
represent Him in this city.
God invites us to come and reason with Him so He can give us is heart for all humanity. We cannot bless God and curse people who
God made in His image. The violence we let get a hold of our spirit will consume us. It is so important that we ask God to help us
reason with Him until we agree with His ways. God wants to give us a clean speech so our prayers can be heard and we can cry out
for those who are wrapped in grave clothes. We are called to be of a different spirit and to be a voice of forgiveness and love so we
can push back the darkness. What do people think of Jesus because of you? Does your life carry the fragrance of Christ? It's time to
reason again and say, “Lord I choose life and love.”
A value system is a set of principles that guide and drive our behavior. History proves that any value system that is independent from God's
laws results in chaos, confusion and destruction. God places value on obedience to Him. The decisions we make will affect our attitudes,
relations, speech and conduct. If we call Jesus Lord, we must value what He values and obey His commands. When we obey, the supernatural
occurs and the miraculous breaks out. When Jesus speaks, what do you do with it? Will you obey Him? As you obey, you are positioning
yourself for the miraculous.
There is a moment coming to this world where everything that's manmade and everything that professes to be to be of God will. In
spite of the darkness that will be on the world, there will be a people who are going to sing a song of glory who have an unshakable
ability to worship in these last days. This song cannot be sung if your value system is still in the world. As the land grows darker those
who have Heaven's value system (which is a value system for souls) those who have Calvary's Kingdom planted in their heart will
understand God's keeping power and His willingness to forgive. We must learn to sing and rejoice that we are left on this earth for the
sake of the people who need to know God.
The Glory of God reigns supreme over the world. God will show up in a dark fearful time and reveal His glory. When the eyes of our heart are truly
opened by the glory of God we will be emboldened and empowered to know and believe our God reigns over all the chaos and darkness. When
the glory of God touches our heart, we will be deeply moved to evangelize the world.
If we are not careful with the things of God something in our heart can close off to who Jesus is and what His purpose is or our lives.
Don't be caught blind in this generation because you crafted another Jesus in your heart. Do we have the courage to humble ourselves
and say God our ways are not your ways? We won't see the real Jesus unless we say blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
When we open our heart to what He wants for our life, Jesus will shine through you in the darkness.
Unity is important and imperative, yet within the body of Christ there is diversity. God calls diverse people to become one family. There is strength
in unity. If we are united there is not a single thing that will be left undone. Every one of us has a specific call to serve, it is a special and unique
call and your contribution is vital to the Kingdom of God and the body of Christ. Dare to believe God can use you and do everything to honor and
Don't be deceived into to thinking you can have the worship of God and have your sin too. You humiliated the devil the day you came
to Christ and Jesus made an open display against the powers of darkness but now your mortally wounded by an enemy you let live
and you sit in the House of God disguising your sin. It's time to get to higher ground and move to where the Cross is. Today, humble
yourself, pull of your disguise and the Lord will receive your prayer and shame the devil. Today don't reject the voice of God lest your
compromise swallow you up.
Offenses come to all of us. How do we handle offenses and what do we do with the pain? Hurt and pain are an indicator that something is
wrong, and if not dealt with in a healthy way it will manifests itself in an unhealthy way. Forgiveness is not optional. It is a commandment and
there is no limit to the times we are to forgive. To forgive is to stop requiring payment for their sin, we give up resentment and choose not to hold
the sin against them. Will you live in the bondage of bitterness or the freedom of forgiveness? Forgiveness is not east but it's right.
Have you ever been disappointed in God? Are you among those sitting in the house of God feeling a little outside of it all, wondering
if your relationship with God could ever be the way it once was? In these seasons we are prone to make the mistakes.
Discouragement and bitterness against God come into the heart when the plan doesn't move forward like we thought it should move
forward. Your plans may have amounted to nothing but God's plan is still ongoing and God's plan is the best plan of all. God hasn't
written you off, He has not forgotten you and the best for your life is yet to come. Today, if you are hungry and thirsty come home to
God always saves the best for last. Do you trust God enough to wait for the greater glory? It's important to wait on God in faith and to trust Him
when we don't understand. Jesus wants us to know Him and to want Him more than we want the answer to our prayers. When we wait for God's
timing the results are better than what we want or ask for. In between asking and receiving Jesus wants to have a personal encounter with you.
The Bible encourages us that men ought always to pray and never give up. God has given us an open heaven and He put an arrow
in our hand, that arrow is prayer. Shooting arrows require effort and aim and sometimes we have to shoot in the dark. The important
thing is that we don't stop shooting the arrows of prayer, trusting that God hears us and He will answer our cry. Prayer does
something in us, through us and for us. Don't be a spectator in with prayer, get off the fence and lay hold of the victory that you have
in Christ. God is calling His Church to step out of where you are and go deeper into Jesus, deeper into His love and power.
In this teaching, Pastor William draws a correlation between the idea of mercy and grace. Mercy is more focused on the idea of forgiveness and
suggests that we treat each other in a way that correlates to the scripture that encourages those who are strong to bear with the infirmities of
those who are weak. When we choose to immerse ourselves in the needs of others, God gives us a spiritual buoyancy, He lifts us up in ways
that we could never experience if we did not choose to be merciful. It's a kind of grace that comes from choosing to show mercy.
The destiny and faith of all mankind is found in Jesus Christ. Jesus represents God's original pattern for man. Jesus should be the
primary focus of our affection and the primary reference point that every aspect of our lives center on. As we fix our gaze on Jesus, He
will cause our faith to raise and we will be strengthened to get through the storms of life.
Rules and relationships are married to one another and sometimes we try to draw an invisible line between them that really shouldn't be there,
so it is vital to understand how they harmonize with one another through the scriptures. The rules of Christianity reflect who God is and they
serve as an invitation to be like Him, free from darkness. We enter into relationship with God by grace through faith, and we thrive in relationship
with Him through obedience.
God's attitude toward the world is that He loves He loves us. God's attitude towards sin is that He hates it. Everyone has sinned and
missed the mark with God. God loves us not because we are loveable but because He is love. You will never realize that you need a
Savior until you understand that you are a sinner. The Good news is that God loved you so much that He sent Jesus to save us from
ourselves. Today, admit you're a sinner, believe in Jesus and confess Him as Lord of your life.
The Bible is multifaceted and because of what Jesus did for us we are utterly saved. The Holy Spirit takes the truth of God's Word and
applies it to our life so that there is no room for any lie of the enemy. The Holy Spirit will talk to you about what it means to be saved and take
you deeper into God's Word so that we are always be learning more and more about Jesus and the assurance of our salvation. As we go
deeper into the Word of God and understand what Jesus has accomplished on the Cross for us, we are protected from being condemned
from the lies of the enemy.
We have all fallen short because of the sin issue. The entire world has received a citation from God and we can't pay it. Those who God
passionately loves are in a condition that God passionately hates. No man can make himself a Christian, God Sent His Son to die for the
sin of man and only God can make man a Christian. We don't get good and come to Jesus, we come to Jesus and He gives us His
goodness. Admit you're a sinner, believe Jesus for forgiveness and freedom and He will fix your sin condition―it's that simple.
Have you been praying for a long time and has your cry become, “How long Lord?” The most powerful people are praying people. Waiting for
God to fulfill His promises to us is just as important as receiving the answer to our prayers. God is working behind the scenes and when all the
pieces fall into place you are going to be amazed at how He answers your prayers. Victorious prayer begins with those who love the Word of
God and begin to pray the promises back to God.
The distinguishing mark of a Christian and the only true identity and passport we have in the Kingdom of God is the love we have one for
another. The voice of God calls us to a Holy refusal and to come out of places of small fruit. We must rise up and refuse to live in strife
and bitterness and allow the power of God's love and forgiveness to be evident in the way we deal with one another. God has called us
and He will bless us and make us a blessing by the power of the Holy Spirit.
This teaching is a continuation on Christian Ethics. We are drawing from a biblical perspective on how to conduct our lives. The best words you
will ever hear from the Lord are “well done good and faithful servant.” Do we believe that God's Word is infallible and are we willing to allow God
to influence every are of our lives so that we come in line with God's value system? When we have a right attitude of heart God promises to give
us the ability to be accountable for whatever He is calling us to do.
Are you so comfortable in your Christianity that you are unwilling to get uncomfortable for the sake of bringing someone to Jesus? It is
important to press into to Jesus and breakthrough every obstacle not only for ourselves but for those who don't know Jesus. God wants
to stir up your compassion for others so you can put your faith in action. When you are determined to bring someone to Jesus, faith will
make a way out of no way.
Faith in God sometimes calls us to follow in His way even though we don't understand how it will all turn out. In this teaching we inspect five
points of faith. Faith follows in His way, accepts His will, invites God to do His work, trusts in His worthiness and holds to His Word. Faith says I
want to do things God's way because God's ways are not your ways.
The thief has come to kill your future and family, to steal your joy and hope and to kill your effectiveness on earth. The devil will have
us believe we will always be in pursuit of a victory we will never catch. Today we are reminded that we have been given weaponry in
Christ to pursue the kingdom of darkness and pulldown strongholds. As the Church of Jesus Christ we should stop sniffling and stand
up against Satan because we have a General that is so powerful the mention of His name can fold up the universe. Everyone has a
plan until somebody punches them in the mouth—It's time to punch the devil in the mouth.
