The Names of God

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Within this theme of ‘names,’ there are the names of God in English, the Hebrew names of God, then there’s about 33 names for the Holy Spirit in scripture, and finally for Christ alone, there are 117 names for Him also! The subject of names is very extensive and one broadcast isn’t enough to cover it all! I will certainly discuss all these other names at another time, so stay tuned but today we’ll focus directly upon the names of ‘God the Father.’ Now, we no longer hold names in high esteem as humanity once did in times of antiquity. ‘Back in the day,’ a name really meant something. You were granted a name by your parents because in Biblical times, it was arguably a prophetic expression of what the child would become or achieve in his lifetime. In the past, names also identified the character or nature of the person.” – Pastor Carl

The Fear of the Lord

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Let me ask you; is it a good thing to have a ‘fear of the Lord?’…Well the term, ‘fear of the Lord’ is mentioned 30 times in scripture and the vast majority of occurrences are in the Old Testament. But there are however, well over one hundred references to the fear of God in a positive sense. Now what does it really mean to have a “fear of God” or a “fear of the Lord?” Well the word ‘fear’ in Hebrew is usually either pa-khad or yir-ah. Pa-khad means ‘terror’, ‘dread’ or the literal emotion of fear that one experiences in dangerous situations. The other Hebrew term for ‘fear’ is yir-ah and in contrast means ‘piety’, ‘a state of reverence’, ‘worship’ or ‘awesomeness.’ So which one of these definitions best describes the reverential fear we should harbor for our Father in Heaven? The answer is both.” – Pastor Carl

12 Reasons why evolution is a lie

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Evolutionary theory (not fact I might add) is of the opinion that we developed from a primordial protozoa; merely an algae or amoebae from a water pool. Evolutionists claim that, “over millions and millions of years,” man developed from an algae over a series of transformational events into the sophisticated human beings you see walking around today. In a nutshell they suggest the algae grew an eye, and then became a fish, which then became a mammal, then an ape and finally became man in his glorious form. Basically, their premise is that we evolved from ‘molecule to man’ or ‘particle to person’. This is known as ‘macro-evolutionary theory.’ Despite much evidence for ‘micro-evolution’ within the animal kingdom, there is no evidence of ‘macro-evolution’ whatsoever, as many evolutionists would have us believe. However, macro-evolution is indeed the platform from which their deceptive theory of evolution is spearheaded.” – Pastor Carl

An Introduction to Prayer

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Prayer by definition is ‘having a dialogue with God,’ not a monologue and the reason I say dialogue is because the basis of prayer is communication and that works ‘both’ ways. Often times we have a monologue with God, spouting all our cares, concerns, needs and desires, but it’s imperative that we take time to listen as well as talk, when we pray. In its purest form one could say that prayer is simply ‘talking to God.’ Our Heavenly Father is the ultimate authority in the universe and He is the one whom we seek in prayer. Because He is a just God, He needs permission to move in our lives. If He moved without permission, He would be a ‘usurper’ or ‘subjugator,’ and He is neither. Satan in contrast is a usurper; he oppresses by force, without permission. God however is a gentleman and requires permission to move. This is why the bible speaks about ‘asking’, ‘seeking’ and ‘knocking’ (Mt 7:7, Lk 11:9).” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Islam

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Islam today claims 2.2 Billion followers which represent about one third of the earth’s population but one thing is for certain, the God of Islam is NOT the God of Christianity. The word Islam means, “surrender” or “submission” to the will of Allah, whom they call God. The term Muslim means, “one who submits.” Islam is intensely monotheistic and the term they use for God (Allah) likely came from ‘Al-illah,’ which means “the God.’ One of the greatest sayings in the Islamic culture is that, “all is as God wills it,” but nothing could be further from the truth. By saying this, Moslems couch that Allah is on the side of both good and evil and personal responsibility is largely ignored in their beliefs. In fact this false ideology is a form of fatalism from our Christian perspective.” – Pastor Carl

You are the Enforcer

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Authority can be defined as delegated power and its strength depends on the force behind the enforcer. We have been granted both authority and power by Christ to act on His behalf and we merely enforce what Christ has already won for us, as an occupying army on this earth. Any authority that isn’t enforced however is equivalent to no authority at all. Every man and woman has authority the moment they’re born again into Christ and it has nothing to do with ‘the baptism of the Holy Spirit.’ They have authority even if they have no knowledge of it, but with knowledge comes the responsibility to enforce that which has been bestowed to us. As members of God’s heavenly throne room and being seated in heavenly places, we utilize the name which is ‘above every name’, and that name is of course Jesus Christ!” – Pastor Carl

Faith as a Law

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today I wish to discuss with you one of the numerous laws mentioned in the word of God. Now you might say Pastor Carl, I’m aware of that, the book of Leviticus has 247 laws alone, so big deal, is that why you went to Bible school?….No friend I understand your reticence, we don’t need any more ‘Old Testament laws’ as Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law which is poverty, sickness and spiritual death. Believe it or not, I’m talking about laws in the New Testament. Yes, I’ll repeat that, laws in the New Testament. What are you kidding me? Now I can hear your brains working right now, wait a minute is he trying to get us to come under the law again like them Galatians?…no, no of course not, but when I explain to you these laws and how they work,  you’re going to be encouraged because they will bring you peace not bondage.” – Pastor Carl

Are You at Odds with Yourself?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This is going to seem like a strange point to make but there are Christians out there who are working against themselves and the Bible actually speaks of this. There’s a fascinating scripture to be found in the second book of Timothy which reveals something every believer ought to get a hold of. Now, some people are flat out angry and mad at God because there are some things in their lives that haven’t gone according to their own plans or expectations and they’re blaming God for it. The cold hard truth is that, despite what we may feel about these issues God is innocent, He is not to blame for what might appear unfair to you. What we often try to pin on Him is in fact is a work of the enemy that’s trying to cause us to doubt God’s goodness in your life. Let’s read 2 Tim 2:24-26 together right now…” – Pastor Carl

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
