What is Righteousness?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Have you noticed my podcast is called, ‘Reigning in Righteousness’ and there’s a reason for that. To the casual listener however, this title might sound a bit pretentious. But you might be saying, “are we not all weak worms of the dust Pastor? I thought we were sinners saved by Grace?” But friend, the reality is, we are the righteousness of God now and my purpose in each and every broadcast is to forge and solidify Christ’s righteousness in you. One of the most disturbing doctrines in Christianity today is ‘Calvinism,’ where the congregants of Calvinistic preachers are never really confronted with the true Gospel. I would say this represents almost half of the church as a whole. This mindset is rooted in a false teaching, where God has supposedly ‘foreordained’ those who will be saved and those who will not. Therefore in these churches, no invitations are offered from the pulpit to become ‘born again.’ There are a lot of assumptions going on, assumptions unfortunately that could result in many people never entering into the promise of salvation. Shockingly, the Pastors themselves may not be ‘born again’ and it’s just like the church I grew up in back home. In these churches there are seemingly no testimonies of a solid conversion experience, an encounter with the Holy Spirit or much else for that matter…” – Pastor Carl

Listen to your heart

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“If there’s one thing I want you to do this year… that is to listen to your heart. You know one of the most tragic things that can happen in a Christians life is going through the ‘day to day’ grind, but never discovering the real purpose of why God put you on this earth. Just because you’re born again or even Spirit filled, doesn’t mean you’re going to fulfill the calling God has for you, unless you purposely seek out and discover God’s plan for yourself. Hebrews chapter twelve reveals there’s a specific ‘race’ that is set before you, that only you can run. I can’t run your race for you; neither can you run my race. I truly believe that learning to be led by the Holy Spirit in line with God’s word is the most important lesson we can learn in this lifetime and you need to learn it friend, in order to live out your purpose. By listening to your heart, you will better be able to navigate the course God has for you, but oftentimes we ignore our heart and ‘keep on plodding along’, much to our detriment.” – Pastor Carl

Disturbing Trends

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This podcast will review some of the most disturbing trends in our society today. Now whenever we desire to predict the future in science, engineering or culture for that matter, we often observe ‘trends.’ If we look that word ‘trend’ up in the dictionary, it means ‘to veer in a new direction,’ or ‘to extend in a general direction,’…But friend, are you not simply alarmed at some of the trends we see in culture today? Even in the past decade, seemingly the moral restraints have been ‘cast off’ and we’re headed in a direction that can only end up in a societal car wreck, if we don’t put the brakes on fast. There are trends in the moral realm, in the economy, in the weather, in fashion, disease, crime, social media, geopolitics, consumer spending, education, and a whole host of others that go to make up the very fabric of our existence. One of the trends I see unfortunately is an ‘apostasy’ or ‘moving away from core values’ upon which most Christian denominations were founded and our Judeo-Christian society as a whole. I believe this to be in direct correlation with the abandonment of God’s word which is the underlying foundation of our society. Right now, we are now reaping the seeds sown in the 1960’s in particular, when prayer was taken out of schools in tandem with the explosion of the sex, drugs and rock n ‘roll culture.” – Pastor Carl

The Beasts of Daniel Chapter 7

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The beasts of this chapter represent various brutal World empires that cruelly ravaged the people of God. That’s why these empires are in the form of a ‘beast’ which is a lower being, exhibiting the savagery of an animal and the harsh treatment of God’s people. The first beast was of course Babylon, symbolic of the ‘lion,’ which had Eagle’s wings. If you look at the symbol of Babylon, a lion is without doubt the national symbol of this nation. This first beast is a ‘hybrid,’ having traits of both lion and eagle. The lion of course, is the king of the animal kingdom and the eagle being the head of the bird kingdom. This truly reflects Babylon which was the head of all empires at the time. Notice this animal had its two wings ‘plucked’ and a ‘man’s heart’ was given to it. The plucking of the wings refers to the insanity that King Nebuchadnezzar exhibited and the subsequent humbling he experienced at God’s hand. After spending several years living in the wilderness, the king was eventually converted to Christ and His heart changed; an apt description of a ‘beast’ receiving a ‘man’s heart.'” – Pastor Carl

The Majestic Human Body

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Did you know you are the crowning achievement or pinnacle of God’s creation, which is the supernatural tripartite infusion of spirit, soul and body? As I’ve said before, our spirit man contacts the spiritual realm, our soul is able to access the intellectual realm and our human body contacts the physical realm. Our focus today is the majestic physical body. Now, how could anyone in their right mind claim the human body with its 206 bones and 639 muscles could have possibly spawned from an ‘algae’ in a fish pond…are you kidding me? But of course, those that make this false claim of ‘particle to person’ are blinded to the truth of the Gospel by Satan himself. They’re unable to receive God’s truth concerning our Genesis as a consequence of their own blindness. God’s word literally reveals this in 2 Corinthians 4:4, where it says 4 ‘In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.’– Pastor Carl

Should women be in ministry?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Gentlemen, it’s time to close your ears because we’re talking to the ladies today and more specifically about a woman’s role in the ministry. All joking aside, in truth gents you need to hear this broadcast too because we’re often the ones guilty of discriminating against women in ministry, so we need to perk up and listen intently to this message. Now some conservative denominations think women should just keep quiet in church and forget about the ministry altogether and they use two of the Apostle Paul’s statements to back this up; namely 1st Corinthians 14:34 and 1st Timothy 2:12. However, we must study scripture in context and in light of its Geographical and Historical setting, for accurate interpretation. Remember, ‘context determines meaning’ and we would be amiss to ignore these important and pertinent contexts when reading these controversial passages.” – Pastor Carl

Noah’s Flood

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Noah’s flood was real; hands down it was a fact, not a ‘story’ as many secularists often couch it. What you really believe that Pastor? I mean come on eight people get on a boat with a whole bunch of animals for 370 days, are you kidding me? Well, 1st Peter 3:20 reveals categorically that eight people did indeed board the ark and God’s word is true no matter what the critics might say. Yes friend, there are boats far larger and heavier than Noah’s Ark sailing the oceans today. They also take advantage of God’s ideal ‘length to breadth ratio’ of 6.5 times as long as wide, being the optimum choice for the buoyancy of vessels, as Noah’s ark demonstrated. Noah’s global flood was most assuredly an historical event and the fossil record ‘shouts’ and ‘screams’ of an archaic, cataclysmic and worldwide deluge. But believe it or not, there are even some Christians who don’t believe Noah’s flood was real either. So I’m going to clear up some of these doubts in this broadcast today.” – Pastor Carl

The Rapture – Part 3

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“We continue to today with Part 3 of our topic of the ‘rapture of the church’ and this will be my second to last message on the subject or at least for now. The ‘pre-tribulation rapture’ is an integral doctrine of the New Testament and one which has come under a lot of attack recently, hence the reason for this broadcast. To recap, the church (or ekklesia -‘the called out ones,’) will not see the antichrist because we’re the very restraining force that withholds his appearing. Once we’re removed from the earth however, the Antichrist is able to manifest and embarks upon a seven year peace treaty (or one week) with Israel to commence the tribulation period (Daniel 9:27). As I’ve stated previously, this ‘mystery of iniquity’ cannot come to full fruition until we the church have been removed. However, once we’re gone, the entire earth’s population will be subject to mass deception or ‘strong delusion’ because God will cause them to believe a lie, having chosen to deny the Gospel in this dispensation. So where exactly did this ‘mystery of iniquity’ come from?” – Pastor Carl

The spirit within and the spirit upon

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“I’m going to talk to you today about the Holy Spirit and His operation within this dispensation of Grace, better known as the ‘Church age,’ in contrast to how He used to operate in the Old Testament. We know from scripture that when anyone is ‘born again’ by God’s Spirit and ‘baptized into Christ Jesus,’ the Holy Spirit dwells within that person. However, in Old Testament times; scripture says the Spirit of the Lord would ‘come upon’ people but never permanently resided within them. His manifestation was both selective and temporary. However in this New Testament dispensation, things are very different. We have now been redeemed by Christ’s blood and have permanent access to the Holy Spirit’s indwelling presence. In scripture the Holy Spirit is sometimes described as ‘water’, ‘oil’ or even a ‘dove.’ So water is often one of several ‘types’ of the Holy Spirit in the Holy Writ. By receiving Christ into your heart you have access to an eternal spring of life, residing deep within you.” – Pastor Carl

The righteous are as bold as a lion!

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“We need to be bold, daring, and resilient in these last days. We should not shrink back but boldly complete the task God has set before us. Quite often we use the terms ‘gun-shy,’ ‘snake bit’ or ‘once bitten twice shy,’ for those who are overly cautious. These terms perhaps best describe our reluctance to move forward with God’s plan because of past failure, shame or even humiliation. We’ve all experienced times like this, I know I have. But it’s so important that even if we’ve experienced some failures, they should not stop us from completing the calling God has placed on our life. We must have courage friend! We need temerity, gumption, hubris, gallantry, fortitude, grit, guts or whatever else you call it in your parts! Yes friend I swallowed a thesaurus there but you get my point! Ha. But where does this courage come from if we’re to be successful for God?” – Pastor Carl
