Carter Conlon from the historic Times Square Church in New York City.

So John comes to the people any tells the people prepare away. Prepare way for God to do work in you that only God can do. So the question is will how how do we prepare the way for God was so glad you joined us for a call to the nation with Hunter Conlon from Times Square Church in New York City. In Mark chapter 1 we read what I say of the prophet had written. I will send my messenger ahead of you who will prepare your way.

That messenger was John the Baptist who announced to the people after me comes one more powerful than I he was, of course, pointing the way to the coming Messiah Jesus Christ let's join Carter now with this message titled prepare the way of the Lord.

I have a specific word for some people and not just taken some highlights of Supercross on on the tablet that we carry is you are sending the men from all over the world and I want to speak to you and I want to speak also to everybody was in a similar condition from US. My dad has always resented to me and to this day he's an old man. It doesn't love me. Please pray for God's love to reach my life for forgiveness and healing and compassion for Miami, Florida.

God bless me with financial miracles remove all this lost and replace it with grace. Replace with peace take me to better things a man from Angola asked for help in prayer for my professional sentimental and spiritual, and financial life God free me from the spell and curse. I don't know what the spelling curse is in Angola, but I do know that Christ set you free.

If you turn to him.

He'll set you free from Fort Lee my heart is hurting.

I lost my mom a few months ago and I feel betrayed by my husband, my kids are said to Jesus, please heal me.

My children and our marriage from Mussolini, Canada. I can't take this anymore.

I'm tired my believing wrong. I hate the spirit of fear. I need deliverance and I need healing in my body just going to believe God for you as well from Salem, Indiana.

Joshua says I'm in a storm of supernatural proportions. My life is utterly shattered father.

I call out to you from Florida. Please pray for a fresh baptism of God's Holy Spirit. I need deliverance from pornography and having to control everything from Anchorage, Alaska. Eva says please pray for me on drinking almost every day except when I'm working from Sweden.

Lord help me. I can't go on being a man, a dozen being with Amanda doesn't love me and has dating apps on his phone so much is wrong, but I'm weak and from Knox for Monica Knox in the United Kingdom. Please pray for a new love in our marriage, and for the complete healing of our marriage. I give all to Jesus and I thank you and praise you for your will alone, and this is what I just read you symptomatic of so many people who are there waiting for their miracle in this will and talked about everybody who's just been waiting and there's the almost like the people of Israel were many years ago when there was between the Old Testament and the New Testament there was a 400 year period of silence were seemingly God was not speaking to the people and many people that's what you feel like Satan, God, it's been so long I've been waiting for you. Where are you, would you be surprised if I told you that we are on the edge of experiencing a supernatural visitation of God one more time in our generation. I speak to prophetically. I know it in my heart.

We are at a moment Christ is coming and there's. There was a voice that God raised up. It was a message on our generation the second of the in in the generation of Jesus. It was one man, one voice. His name was John the Baptist in our generation is due to the many voices raised many men and women who are locked in with God and they're starting to hear were all hearing the same thing I was talking to Pastor Tim Delina today. He's hearing it as well.

We are hearing the same thing. Kevin Jessica, a guest speaker. We had here in chapel today at our Bible school he's hearing the same thing were on the edge of the visitation of God and before God does something he sends voices in to call the people call the people's attention to the fact that his government is coming to do things that only God can do not are not. This is not wishful thinking on my part.

My friend then talking to wherever you are in your home, your living or whatever group, whatever country this is not wishful thinking. Christ is returning to this world soon before he returns. He and his mercy is going to gather everyone who can still hear his voice.

Everyone was still at the side of the road crying Jesus son of David, have mercy on me, everyone was looking for a reason for life. Everyone who's was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Everyone was in the storm and they don't know how to get out of everyone is just crying at the end of the thing God where are you. It seems like 400 years of been crying out to you and you not answering my prayer than then suddenly the word of God comes to men. Luke chapter 3 in verse two it says while Annas and Caiaphas were the high priests the word of God know there's a priest judgment that they don't have a word you know then that can happen in any generation business people up and adjusted the reading things in there. They're quoting things that are true it's it's right in the reading from the Scriptures, but they don't have a living word from God that they're not hearing from God, but the word of God came to a man called John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness benefactor was needed because they were specially was in the middle of nowhere, but God started speaking to this man and he went into all the region round about Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled every mountain and hill brought low, the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough ways smooth and all flesh cells see the salvation of the Lord. So God Almighty God Almighty God Almighty anoint these words, God Almighty send your power into every home, every bedroom, every couch, every living room every department every car every place where somebody is listing God, send your power, God, let your word. Your word is alive your Lord created the universe. No send your Lord, send your as you did to John and John use this man to get the attention of a generation that art became used to not hearing from God. Father God in Jesus name field.

Lord we ask you to heal the sick, deliver the oppressed active site to the blind, bruised, and wounded heart imprisoned are the treasure of God preached to them.

Lord, do what only you can do. Jesus son of God, harvest in this generation that was so so glad your heart hold God we didn't go to cross you because you loved us. You said so we know that we believe it was the temple you said this is why father sent me to heal the sick to raise the debt to give sight to the blind open prison doors, and that the poor might have the treasure of heaven open to them.

So God we just pray and speak in accordance with your will let your kingdom come, and let your will be done. God I promise you one thing, we will give you the glory my God. We know what we are without you but we know that because of you. We are sons and daughters of your kingdom and we give you praise and glory in Jesus name. So John comes to the people and he tells the people prepare away. Prepare way for God to do work in you that only God can do. So the question is will how how do we prepare the way for God. Christ was just about to be revealed is you know it was an under the ministry of John one people came into the waters of baptism as soon as they were baptized. It was then that Jesus said, behold the Lamb of God one date when they actually responded to this word. Their eyes were opened and they saw God's son, the atoning sacrifice for their sin but hope for the future. Their freedom for healing that longing, desire that they'd had for years and years and years that cry.

It was in so many hearts of the people. Now the first thing out of John's mouth when he's telling the people to prepare way for the Lord is.

It told him to repent and not going to tell you that repent, repent means change. Repent means I'm not here's here's an example of repentance in here an alcoholic but you be satisfied with getting away with this five or six drinks a day.

If you could, control your behavior in your calling out to God, but you don't really want to repent, you just want to kind of less consequence from your sin. That's not repentance. Repentance means I don't want my lip stain by alcohol, the more I want the living water of God coming from my inward parts, that's the promise of God for my life. So I'm going to put this part of my life away. I'm going to repent of being selfish in my marriage. I'm going to repent of that the dating after this lady said that on my house of my husband's phone. I'm going to repent of the pornography about looking at work. I'm going up I'm going to repent of the gossip and slander. This in my time with the hatred that's in my heart for the unforgiveness. I felt towards family members.

He mimed I'm going to repent with reason going to stop living my way and I'm going to start living the way that God says I should live.

This is how the way he comes to set us free, but we have to want to be free to comes to changes, but we have to want to change. You can't sit there and make peace with your sin and ask God to come into your life it doesn't work that way soon separates from God and the wages of sin according to the Bible is that it's always been death, it still is death. That will forever be death.

The only way out of the wages of sin is through Jesus Christ the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Repent.

When I got saved and I started reading my Bible the first thing that started happening to me as I started seeing my my character in the light of what God says my character should be is like going to a doctor and you look good on the outside to stand in front of an x-ray machine and there was down front of the x-ray machine to see the broken bones and the good of the tumors. Whatever's in your body the things that shouldn't be there. That's what the word of God does, for example, is somebody that's listening to me word of God says.

Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her, so start there sir, if you got trouble in your marriage.

Let the x-ray machine of God taught your heart but yourself is this touch are lost and you ask yourself, am I loving my wife as Christ loved the church am I given for my wife and if you're not repent that the needs turn.

It means I was walking this way and now I'm going to turn I'm going to walk this. It's a willful choice that I make in my life not to live in sin or not, to live with an attitude of heart that God says I shouldn't have. Now Ephesians chapter 4 verses 21 to 24 says this, if indeed you have heard him and have been taught by him as the truth is in Jesus that you put off concerning your former conduct. The old man the old nature which grows corrupt.

According to deceitful laws and others without Christ you're continuously being deceived and you're actually getting darker and you're more in getting more entranced in behavior that alienates you from who you're supposed to be in God and pulses, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God in true righteousness and holiness of supposing get into the word of God and and put away, this old nature, my God, if I could get in your living might shake you I'm talking to somebody I know in talking to somebody I just feel like I grab you by the collar right now is it what are you waiting for, why do you sit in this poverty when you are offered this treasure of life when you're offered the freedom from sin when you're offered healing in your home when you're offered a away in the future. What are you doing sitting there still compromising with this stuff. This is not repentance looks like. Go to the comfort part of that whiskey down the drain flies those drugs down the toilet so that laptop in the garbage. If you can't get rid of the pornography in your life path amidst change because you being offered life Johnson make a straight path into your heart for God to come don't make it a crooked place. Don't make it a place where ducky and wheezing and hiding behind curtains and trying to see how close guys data hello how does guy get to God at the same time repent. Make a straight path that was the word the John brought to the people. How does it happen though no Luke chapter 3 verse five here it is.

He says in verse forces the voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord make his paths straight. No verse five is all God. This is where the beauty of it comes in this what God does. He says every valley will be filled every little place in your life if you think your net recovery all your in that you think you're never going to get out of God's go to Philip and God to give you the power to get out every mountain shall be brought low. Every thing that's too big.

Everything that stands in your way every every place where you feel like you can't climate the devil put there. You can't get over it.

You can't get through it.

You can't get around it got sincerely that McNamee you make a straight path into your heart and I'll look after your mountains. I'll take those mountains out of your life and I will give you the power to cast them into the midst of the sea. The good places shall be made straight. This is what God will do if we have made a straight path all these crooked places in there. We beg to sit straight out. We are crooked without God we we deviate we we we craft crooked reasonings were like snakes. We just would like this in the inner logic always reasoning, always conniving, always, always figure out how we can do it.

How can we get away without. We do this, how can we deviate around the truth of God. God says no I'm to make all of crooked places straight a straight path and the rough ways will be made smooth, and the bill clear. This is all be the voice behind you that says this is the pathway walk in it. So we repent. Then, we believe that God will give us the victory in verse six is the capstone and John said, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God. When you think you're going to see it and you all flesh is your house is your family visit friends.

Major neighbors that they'll see in you what God alone is able to do all flesh shall see the salvation of God. That's that's I think were going as a society. In this last hour time that everybody's going to be given an opportunity to see who God is what God can do through to me through you through people's lives have been transformed because what they made a straight path for God to come into their life. They confessed and they repented of their sin allowed God to come in. They have believed that he is able to transform their lives and they have a confession. Only God could have done this for me, but God could've changed my life the way my life is been changed. Praise be to God.

I was not nor was, and is interested in theology when I before I got saved. That is how this thing works. I think everybody's got a stick in New York City or "everybody's got a gimmick, everybody's got an idea.

But when it when this the police officer came to me and started telling me about Christ that my quest was to show me how it works will not affect he did remember the man looked at me, so I used to be a womanizer in a drunken, a gambler, I look at this guy needs a straight is narrowing as a career manning the sharpies clear and is clean and even more than that. He loved me. He cared for me. I buy could blow smoke in his face I could take there in front of them. I could make fun of him and he kept coming to my house because he cared for my soul and was in his theology that won me to Christ. It was him. It was the reality of Jesus in his life. All flesh shall see. Without him I don't know if I would be safe. Today I needed a flesh and blood example of the reality of God, because everyone has an opinion about everything, especially God, I needed an example does this thing work in people's lives. He told me if anyone is in Christ is a new creation. All the old things are passed away behold all things are big become new. And he wants to me a living example of man was everything other than what he said he used to be. He had repented of his sin, yet repetitive, womanizing and gambling and drinking it repented of the yet open desert to God made a straight path the Lord had transformed his life and he was confessing the transformation before me and because of it. I saw the salvation of God policy. Hallelujah. It was a copy trying to observe and I knew at a certain point. This is true, and it provoked me then to read the Gospel of John, and when I read the Gospel of John. I prayed and I said Jesus.

If this is true, show it to me and he did say I was making. Now, straight path from the come into my life and start speaking. I wasn't trying to cropped it. I wasn't trying to carve it into something that I thought would be palatable to me of the same God show me. He showed me the cross. None of the cross, but without ever hearing a sermon on it showed me that I wasn't coming up to him just to dump my bad feelings about myself directly. Repent of my sin and give the rights to the rest of my life over to God. Nobody ever told me that I read it sought when I turned to God. In 1978 on the side of the road. It was the beginning of a brand-new life that I've been over most of the world. I guess by this point and hopefully many people have had the chance to see the salvation of God.

Hey, don't make this thing complicated. No, you don't have to know any Hebrew words to experience sex just Jesus had saw just have to disbelieve just repent, may I challenge people so many people online. You know me with a per request like my boyfriend has eyes for the women I'm not a member seen that two weeks the role of what you doing with him dump the guy done for these guys to still break your heart is not commit adultery. When you get out of there and treat you like a ragdoll. You get out of there.

Your you're coming into a prayer meeting, asking for prayer. But you know what to do as God, what is it in you that gets you into these relationships in the first place in the busy Bible says repent and believe that he's going to come. It is going to make your valleys going to lift you up and bring your mountains down and make your crooked way straight, and you're going to have a testimony, maybe even he will see it.

Who knows, you know what God will do.

Maybe the beats on the one that turns his heart to the truth of Christ, who knows God Almighty father in Jesus name. In Jesus name.

In Jesus name. Father, I ask you for people to finally make the decision that need to finally diskette sin sick and just get up and say I'm going with God I'm going with God and whatever that means in my life. I am going to repent of my sin, putting away my drugs. My wicked tongue my love of pleasure, everything else that I know is wrong.

I'm just by the hatred my heart for somebody and discomforted all way I'm going to trust you, Lord, that is. I make a straight path into my heart that you will give me freedom and victory you change me and I could become another person, another man, another woman, whatever your cases.

Another mother, another father, another brother, another sister got I could be a person different than what sin is made, making me into an Lord, I will confess you, I will. I will speak of you as my God, than I do long for people around me to know that you are real you real soiling to get up and I'm gonna walk on the water.

I heard it today I'm in a walk on the water towards you, as the song said earlier, I'm coming home. I seems like a long way but I'm just gonna come home and come in please please come home. Please, please, I know how discouraged you are and I know hot down the field with don't you know how much God loves you. You feel along in his heart for you he died for you.

It wasn't just an empty display on his part. He died for you because he loves you that you had no way out but through him paying the price for your sin. So why would she just come home and you sit there any longer. He has a not only in eternity for you, but a full meaningful life on this side of eternity reason to live in and you will experience a supernatural God, you will become another person. I'm telling you straight out the man I was a 24 died, literally died and another man was born the Bible because of being born again by the spirit of God that man died doesn't exist anymore in the new man was born because God came because out my heart and someone ask you to do that prayed with me right now and make these words. This is not a formulae we don't. It's it's not it's not my prayer this going to save you.

It's it's you making it your thought.

I'm just helping you and guiding you to say these were Lord Jesus Christ and I don't want to live like this anymore. I'm not the person that you are calling me to be tired of my sin and I want to change.

I'm willing to be the person that you want me to be. You died on it on the cross, you were nailed there were beaten were rejected and you did for me so that I wouldn't be rejected so I could come home. I opened my heart to you and I invite you to come into my life and be my Lord and my Savior. I believe that you have a new purpose for my life. You won't fail me and that people will see you in my life.

I believe you bring healing into my mind, my body, my family and marriage with children.
