An Atmosphere of Praise and Worship

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, right now in this nation 11 percent of Americans are on some kind of antidepressant drugs, they’re also called Psychiatric Drugs. Some sources believe that number could soon be as high as 1 in 6 in the very short future! Check this out, the number of people on antidepressants increased by 400 percent between 1998 and 2008. What’s even more surprising is that 69% of the people taking Anti-depressants have never suffered from any major depressive disorder and have never met the criteria for obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia or generalized anxiety disorder. Yet they still take these anti-depressant pills anyway. That means friend in layman’s terms, one in ten people in this nation are on anti-depressants and the majority of those taking them are doing to so just to feel better or get by in life without a proper diagnosis for what ails them. The reality is we’re fast becoming a society that increasingly self-medicates, turning from last resorts to quick fixes.” – Pastor Carl

The Global Warming Hoax

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Global Warming is a hoax friend and that’s a fact. Jesus Christ gave his life for humanity, not Terra Firma. Christ’s blood was shed for the sins of mankind, and there’s no sinfulness in our carbon footprint and no shame to breathing out. To claim CO2 is a sinful byproduct of our very existence is to attack God’s creation itself and the way He designed our bodies for His glory. So where exactly did this concept of Global warming first gain momentum? It started in the Club of Rome when they produced a Report in 1993 called the First Global Revolution and I quote from page 75 of this report, “In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would foot the bill….the real enemy then, is humanity itself.– Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Mormonism

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, today I’d like to talk about Mormonism or the Latter Day Saint Movement and particularly the dangers of Mormonism because you could argue that of all the cults out there, Mormonism is the most effective counterfeit of biblical Christianity ever devised. Right now there are about 15 million adherents of Mormonism worldwide with roughly 57% of them living outside the United States. These numbers stem from an aggressive form of evangelism, having a very zealous missionary program; in fact they have 18,000 missionaries and growing. They’re well trained and seem to focus more on college towns. Basically Mormonism is run like a giant corporation with a huge annual income. All Mormons are required to give, they are required to tithe their income and have very faithful givers as a result. They also hold to a high moral standard and generally harbor good reputations…” – Pastor Carl

Hell is Real

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now did you know that about 13% of all that Jesus spoke was about Hell. In 2003 the Barna research group conducted a survey and found that 76% of Americans believe in Heaven but less than 13% believed in a literal Hell. What’s even more disturbing is less than one half one percent believed they were actually going to Hell. Friend, society today has become hoodwinked as to the reality of Hell. In fact the reality of Hell throughout the ages has been a certainty in the hearts of men until the latter part of the 19th century, when for the first time an alternative world view was presented by Charles Darwin and contrary to man’s common consensus of Hells existence…. Have you ventured into a graveyard lately? One day your name too will be etched on stone friend, and your physical body will lie in a grave but the real you on the inside, your spirit-man and soul, will spend eternity in either Heaven or Hell.” – Pastor Carl

The Danger of UFO’s

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“I’m going to talk about a topic that quite frankly will not only surprise you but might cause you to think I’m losing my marbles. I’m talking about UFO’s. Now UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object as I’m sure you’re aware but there’s something very salient I wish to point out about all UFO sightings, they occur in the air; and more on that shortly. In the United States alone there are approximately 7,000 UFO sightings reported each year according to the National UFO Reporting Center but one must also consider that for every sighting that’s reported perhaps there are three times as many that go unreported.  This flood of sightings really began in 1947, coincidentally right around the time the nation of Israel was established, which is a marker for the end times. The flying saucer story really began on June 24, 1947, when a private pilot, Kenneth Arnold, who was taking part in a search for a missing transport aircraft, saw nine disc-shaped objects….” – Pastor Carl

Noah’s Flood

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, let me begin by stating that in 500 cultures around the world, each and every one of them has an historical account of a flood and these are independent records I might add.

I will name a few of them for you in a moment. But what does the National Geographic Magazine have to say about Noah’s flood? Well in the article,” Ballard and The Black Sea: The Search for Noah’s Flood”, they wrote and I quote, “Almost every culture on Earth includes an ancient flood story. Details vary, but the basic plot is the same: The Deluge kills all but a lucky few….. In fact friend if we go down the list, we find there are 35 nations which have intricate historical records of worldwide floods under many different names, including: – China, Babylon, Wales, Russia, India, America, Hawaii, Scandinavia, Sumatra, Peru, and Polynesia all having their own versions of a great flood.” – Pastor Carl

DHOP Vision Statement

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“When I was in Bible College, several years back now, I felt a strong urge after going on a retreat in the Ozark Mountains that one day I would start a church within the Downtown Denver city limits and this desire has never waned. Now Downtown Denver has been a tough nut to crack for many Spirit filled churches down the years, trying to make a lasting impact in the city. When Denver went from boom to bust in the oil price slump of 1986, many churches left the city and never returned. Back in the day many vibrant denominational churches simply closed their doors and shut up shop, leaving only cathedrals. However since the turn of this century Denver has been in a steady and progressive boom cycle with the downtown area experiencing enormous investiture and architectural renewal that we can all admire. However, I don’t believe the spiritual needs of this city have been catered for in proportion with this explosive measure of economic and architectural growth.” – Pastor Carl

The Olivet Discourse

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now what’s surprising is that many people look for the rapture of the church in the Olivet Discourse but you won’t find it. Remember the church wasn’t founded until the Day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two in the upper room in Jerusalem. Neither the church nor the rapture are found in these chapters about the end times, because the Church was not founded until after this message was delivered to Israel following their rejection of Christ as Messiah. However, I do believe we’ll see the first nine verses of this passage (Matthew chapter 24) in the run up to the rapture and in these nine verses, Jesus describes events that have been witnessed already within the church age. Remember, the only reference Jesus made to the rapture is in John 14:1-4 as I said before, when Jesus said He would go and prepare a place for us and come again and receive us unto himself. That ‘coming again’ is the rapture of the church.” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Buddhism

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now, it’s is estimated that about 6% of the World’s population are practicing Buddhist’s, which would equate to about 420 million people across the globe. The precise number of followers is difficult to ascertain because of Buddhism’s ability to assimilate itself into any culture and subsequently influence that culture’s underlying beliefs. Primarily Buddhism is practiced mostly in the nations of Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Laos, Taiwan, China, Japan, Mongolia, Tibet, Bhutan, Vietnam and finally Hong Kong. But friend it’s also on the rise within this nation and Europe. It influences more people than you think, especially within the celebrity circus. Let me give you a list now of some celebrities who practice Buddhism and you might be surprised at some of these:- These would include, Jennifer Anniston, Orlando Bloom, Angelina Jolie, John Cleese, Richard Gere, George Lucas, Courtney Love, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brad Pitt, Oliver Stone, Steve Wynn, Mark Zuckerberg, Keanu Reeves, Steve Jobs, Patrick Duffy and finally Penelope Cruz.” – Pastor Carl

Why I believe in the pre-tribulation rapture

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The tribulation period is compared to the times of Noah and Lot by Jesus in Luke 17:26-28. The two circumstances that Noah and Lot shared were the removal of the righteous and subsequent judgment of the wicked in their dispensation. Noah and his family were removed in an Ark and Lott’s family escaped from Sodom and Gomorrah by angels after Abraham interceded for them. Abraham acted like a type of Christ in this instance because he petitioned God for the righteous in the city. This is called ‘setting a precedent’ in scripture or the ‘law of first mention.’ Once a precedent is set, God is not capricious friend and does not change His mind or the way he does things. These examples serve as a typology for the removal of the godly into safety and future judgments upon the ungodly, resulting in destruction.” – Pastor Carl
