Where Our Authority Comes From

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Some people have been amazed down the years, as to the lack of respect we believers have for the word of God and our hypocrisy of not applying it. Even Mahatma Gandhi has made an observation regarding this. He spoke forcefully to Christians when he said, “You Christians have in your keeping a document with enough dynamite in it to blow the whole of civilization to bits, to turn society upside down, to bring peace to this war-torn world. But you read it as if it were just good literature, and nothing else.“… Wow friend, what a stern observation from someone who never even came to the saving knowledge of Christ in his lifetime. Think about that for a moment, the man who led the revolution in India against the British occupying forces saw much hypocrisy in our Christian religion and spoke openly about it. He saw people preach one way and act another. Even Gandhi saw the potential of Gods power in His word and those who were not utilizing it to its full effect.” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Scientology

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, no other religion is as litigious as Scientology. They have been plaintiffs in an enormous amount of lawsuits compared with most churches. Scientology is a false religion by biblical teachings. It has its own scripture; it holds a worldview and seeks spiritual enlightenment. Whenever a religion strays from the biblical outline of God’s plan of salvation, as shown in the Bible then it enters the realm of being labeled a cult and Scientology is most assuredly a cult, by the purest definition. Ron L. Hubbard was a popular science fiction writer of the 1930’s and 40’s but he made a statement at a New Jersey science convention that made people curious of his real intentions and I quote, “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.” And that my friend is what old Ron did. He started a religion… he made it all up…” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Freemasonry

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, I want to talk today about something so subversive, so subtle, so pervasive, so prolific that it has infiltrated some of the largest organizations in modern society, including the highest levels of government today. People that you encounter in everyday life are members of this secret society but you would never know unless you knew their secret handshake. This organization of which I speak has secretly guided the hand of nations because within each nation is an undercurrent of men bound to each other by secret oaths, who acknowledge the brotherhood of man and are even willing to sacrifice their morals for the sake of another brother within their organization. I am of course speaking of Freemasonry. The Bible explicitly warns us against taking oaths in secrecy but simply let your yes be yes and your no, be no. Jesus did nothing in secret, he had nothing to hide and He is our example.” – Pastor Carl

You Have Spiritual Authority

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“It’s desirous that we not only understand our authority in Christ Jesus but know how to use it as I’ve said in previous broadcasts. We have no spiritual authority in and of ourselves of course, but the authority is found in the name of Jesus Christ, as I will shortly explain. Now, the first measure of authority we must enforce; is authority over our flesh. Any context of spiritual warfare in the Bible is first and foremost addressing the war between our flesh and our spirit. They’re at enmity, with each other; they are hostile to one another as the bible says. If we take full control over our flesh then we hereby ‘give no place’ or ‘foothold’ to the devil and he therefore has no means to devour us. Wrestling with the devil and demon forces is a secondary skirmish, after we’ve crucified the flesh and these forces cannot take any ground in our lives if we maintain our flesh’s crucifixion.” – Pastor Carl

Who You Are in Christ

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Did you know the word of God is profitable? In the business realm, people are attracted to that which is profitable because it serves as a good form of investment. Well let me tell you friend, there is nothing more profitable than God’s word, but don’t believe me, believe the scripture, “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” (1 Tim 4:8) and again further down in this chapter, “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. When we are confronted with God’s word we have two choices, we can either embrace the truth and accept it as our reality going forward or look backward at our lives, and what we’ve done, to define who we are. Our identity is tied to what Christ did, not what you have done. Jesus warned about this when he said, “..No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God(Lk 9:62). ” – Pastor Carl

The Five Deliverances

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today friend I’d like to inform you that you have been delivered, delivered from what you might ask? Well, as a Christian you’ve been delivered from five things, so I want to make you aware of them today from God’s Word. It’s imperative that you are cognizant of what Christ won for you on the cross and consequently, you may enjoy the liberty that he paid for in these five key areas. I will spend some time going through each of them with scriptural examples after I list them for you and here they are:-

  • You have been Delivered from this present evil age.
  • Delivered from the Law.
  • Delivered from self.
  • Delivered from the flesh
  • And finally delivered from this world (or better put the world system – ‘Cosmos’).” – Pastor Carl

My Take on Fasting

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The purpose of fasting is to dissipate the power of the flesh and so that we become more sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. As you fast, certain bad habits or strongholds can weaken and your spirit man will rise up in strength. I sincerely believe in fasting and I have a personal affinity for it because it’s how I came to the Lord. Back in the last century I went on an extended juice fast for 28 days and during that time, I came to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That is still the longest I’ve ever fasted at one time, although numerous times I’ve fasted for a day, 3 days, 7 days and even ten days every year. It’s a testimony I will share at another time, suffice to say, during that period it was as if I came to a deeper realization that there was more to life than just the attainment of riches and success.” – Pastor Carl

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses Christians?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Let me ask you this friend, do you think Jehovah’s witnesses are in fact Christians? Heck, you might even be a Jehovah’s Witness listening to this broadcast right now and if so, I would strongly urge you to consider what I’m about to say with an open heart because friend, you’re very soul depends upon it. Now, before I answer the question of whether they are Christians or not, let me share some information with you, concerning its founder Charles Taze Russell. This gentleman was the founder of the Jehovah’s Witness movement and he lived from 1852-1916, passing away right in the middle of the First World War. He was originally a 7th Day Adventist, but he began to disagree with them on several doctrines, but especially that of atonement. I’m not going to get into the ‘ins and outs’ of this but suffice to say, you could argue that the teachings of Jehovah’s witnesses are in fact, a perversion of 7th day Adventism…” – Pastor Carl

Seated in Heavenly Places

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“In our discussion on authority in the past several days, it’s important to understand the context of scripture and what exactly we have authority over. We don’t have authority outside of the authority God has granted to us in scripture. For example we don’t have authority over other people…We do have authority however, over the devil and demon forces! In our secular society of course most people will quip, “who cares? I aint never seen a demon yet and never will!” What’s often overlooked however is that we in ‘the west’ are often blind to the supernatural realm or fail to even acknowledge it. I would also stress that the occurrence of demonic activity is likely to be less in these last days compared to the times of Jesus because if the number of demons are fixed throughout history, and the population of the earth is rapidly increasing, then demonic oppression per person is diminishing. But regardless of your theological stance, Christ has granted us jurisdiction over these nefarious spirits that in some cases can cause us problems nonetheless.” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Globalism

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The world in which we now live is fast approaching a hybridization of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and George Orwell’s 1984 and friend it’s a world I want no part of; nor should you, because it’s built upon man’s ideology of ‘becoming a god’ instead of repenting and submitting to the one Almighty and true, Yahweh God. In 1984 Orwell described a future global regime composed of three totalitarian governments and the Holy Bible actually describes ten regions of global governance in Dan 7:24 and Rev 17:12. A totalitarian regime does in fact, aptly describe the coming New World Order in the Book of Revelation with the earth divided into ten regions, which will ultimately be controlled by the Antichrist during the tribulation period. A totalitarian regime is based upon the subordination of the individual to the state and the strict control of all aspects of one’s life.  This subordination may include coercive measures such as governmental censorship under the looming threat of terror…Sound familiar?” – Pastor Carl
