Surveillance Society

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Like it or not; you are living in a surveillance society and one that you may not be even aware of. Someone once said, that “privacy is the foundation of a free society,” and if that’s a true statement (and I believe it is), then our society is rapidly losing its freedom and showing no signs of abating. Freedom is of course the basis of all democratic societies which are founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. These principles stem from the Torah, the book of Isaiah, the book of Proverbs and the Gospels. When George Orwell penned his now infamous novel of a coming technocratic dystopia in sharp contrast to the statues of true democracy, it was a society in which ‘everyone’ and ‘everything’ was monitored on a continual basis. But little did Orwell know that almost 68 years after he wrote the novel, ‘1984’, his envisioned technocracy would be well on its way to completion in our present day and age. The cold hard truth is that right now, as George stated, “Big Brother truly is watching you” and video cameras literally capture our every move, just as they did in Orwell’s sinister novel. Even your credit cards have recently had RFID chips installed in them and now provide a far greater level of intrusion via increased surveillance sophistication, unlike the credit card companies of yesteryear.” – Pastor Carl

The Last Trump

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we will turn our attention to one of the most famous Rapture passages in the Bible and this is of course 1st Corinthians 15:50-57. The Latin verb rapio means “to snatch, or seize” and this is where we get the word English word ‘rapture’ from. This passage speaks explicitly of the transformation that will occur when we’re caught up with Jesus ‘in the air’ and our simultaneous transformation into glory, by exchanging our corruptible body into an incorruptible one. Now as you know, we at DHOP believe in the ‘pre-tribulation rapture’ of the church, or ‘the blessed hope’ spoken of in Titus 2:13. The logical question concerning the end times is, ‘How can anyone have ‘hope,’ if we the Bride of Christ will be dragged through the mud, blood and fire in the catastrophic events of the seven year tribulation period?’ There’s no hope whatsoever if that’s the case, yet some Christians wrongly insist on this false premise that we the Church will endure ‘God’s wrath’ because they simply don’t comprehend the love of God the Father. A loving Father would never allow His Son’s bride to endure the very wrath that Jesus took for us on the cross. On seven occasions in the Book of Revelation the tribulation period is described as the ‘wrath of God’ (Rev 19:15, Rev 16:19, Rev 16:1, Rev 15:7, Rev 15:1, Rev 14:10, Rev 14:19).” – Pastor Carl

Historical events in the Bible – Daniel Chapter 2

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“There’s no better way to witness to our friends, family and colleagues than to reveal to them that history is written in the bible… in advance! Yes I said it, God wrote historical events in advance, having full knowledge of their outcome, whether they be battles, empires, kings that would rise and fall, or even the rise, fall and rebirth of the nation of Israel itself. Think about it, if we compare Jehovah God, Jesus Christ to the pantheon of other false Gods, none of these ‘false Gods’ or ‘prophetic pretenders’ foretold events like our God does in His Word. In some cases these prophecies were given, hundreds of years prior to their realization. That’s why the Holy Bible is unique among all other religious writings because it houses the truth written by a God, living outside our space-time continuum, who’s ‘ever present,’ ‘all seeing,’ ‘all powerful’ and ‘all knowing.’ Today we will study Daniel Chapter 2 and King Nebuchadnezzar’s metallic statue.” – Pastor Carl

Stories of Healing

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“God is equipping the saints (that’s you), through the fivefold ministerial offices (Eph 4:11), so you will be ready when God asks you to move by faith. So let me begin now by sharing several real life testimonies of how God used me, when I first became ‘born again.’ The first testimony concerns the miraculous healing of cancer. I have a dear friend from Stafford, Texas called Dolores. Now I befriended this lady and her wonderful husband Roel, who’s a godly man, whilst living in Houston, Texas in the early 2000’s. Anyway when I mentioned in a previous broadcast of the time when I prayed for the lady with the brain tumor at a nearby food pantry, Dolores was by my side. She was volunteering that very same day and she’s a great woman of faith. Now during 2003, Roel’s sister Linda, was unfortunately diagnosed with Cancer of the lymph-nodes and she chose not to do chemotherapy. She was also a practicing Catholic but unfortunately her local priest was not willing to pray for her to receive healing or didn’t believe the Lord could move in that regard today. So that’s when myself and Dolores offered to pray for her.” – Pastor Carl

Did Jesus Exist?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This broadcast is in response to a documentary I recently watched from the UK in which a so-called, “religious expert” had stated in a publicly televised debate, “there was no evidence that Jesus Christ ever existed!” This wasn’t ‘Brexit’ but apparently the complete exit of Jesus from Europe’s history books! Frankly, I nearly fell off my chair upon hearing this false claim and having been born in the UK, my blood started to boil. This woman denied that Christ ever existed…at all! Which is definitely a counterfactual statement rooted in either ignorance at best or perhaps nefarious Gnosticism at the very worst (1 John 4:3). Despite numerous so called ‘Christians’ being present in this live debate, I was most perturbed that not one of them confronted this so called ‘expert’s’ ignorance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for education but we shouldn’t educate ourselves at the expense of common sense and sound judgment. Let’s do our homework before we spout out a level of ignorance which frankly embarrasses someone holding the credentials of a scholar, reputedly at the Doctoral level.” – Pastor Carl

The Homosexual Lifestyle

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“If America was on the operating table right now, some would contend its pulse is weak, the heart palpitating, its eyes dilated and with every symptom pointing towards imminent death. The moral fabric of this nation is eroding so swiftly, it’s hard to keep up with the latest depth of depravity or rebellious ruckus in the corporate sponsored and government censored, news media. Morality my friend is the foundation of any nation; it’s the compass that steers us toward either godliness or lawlessness. Governments come and go, but God remains. The US Government may declare new boundaries of marriage, in the Supreme Court in the ruling of Obergefell vs. Hodges on June 26th, 2015 but “Holy Matrimony” is decreed by God. Therefore, government has no right to amend what it did not instigate. I will say it again, government has no right to amend what it didn’t instigate and because it didn’t ratify marriage in the first place, it has no right to amend the definition of it, only God does, and He isn’t changing it any time soon.” – Pastor Carl

Justification vs. Glorification

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we’re talking about the difference between being ‘justified’ and ‘glorified.’ Now you might say who cares Pastor? But what I’m about to share with you is rudimentary orthodox Christian doctrine. These are tenets of the faith that you must be aware of! The focus of our discussion will be Romans Chapters 6-8. Here the Apostle Paul reveals the perpetual vacillation between our flesh and spirit, the various temptations we encounter and God’s limitless grace to overcome them. Let’s start our broadcast today with Deuteronomy chapter 32 which is a powerful passage that reveals God’s righteousness, “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: For all his ways are judgment: A God of truth and without iniquity, Just and right is he.” God’s righteousness is immutable; He is ‘the Rock’ upon which we stand! He’s someone you can count upon. He’s stable, He never changes, He can be trusted and He is for you, not ‘against’ you (Rom 8:31). God is not a respecter of persons; He is fair; in fact He’s the ultimate definition of fair. What He’s done for one He will do for another.” – Pastor Carl

Giants in the Land

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The information I’m about to share with you today could be considered controversial within some circles but it’s the truth nonetheless. Remember what I told you before ‘no topic is off the table’ here at DHOP. We will not shy away from truths long held in the ‘Oracles of God’ and recently corroborated by notable historical manuscripts, found within the Dead Sea Scrolls. Having scoured the Old and New Testaments, the writings of the Early Church Fathers, the book of Enoch and several other historical texts, I’m going to reveal to you today, the precise Genesis of ‘the Giants’ or ‘mighty men of renown,’ in the ancient land of Israel and its surrounding nations. However not only that, were you aware there were giants discovered in numerous burial mounds within this nation also? And President Lincoln spoke of them? This is hard for many to fathom, albeit these mounds and the accompanying discovery of gigantic bones within them, have been well documented for the last 150 years within many local newspapers in the USA.” – Pastor Carl

Is there a time to die?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we will ask the question, “Has God decided beforehand a time for you to die?” The short answer is “no,” but it’s going to take me a while to explain this. There are some of you out there right now who’re already saying, “No Pastor, I thought there was a time to die and when your time is up that’s it and that’s based on the book of Ecclesiastes.” Yes friend, there’s a time to die certainly; everyone on this earth is certainly going to die at some point but it’s not a designated point in time, already decided by God. This is not biblical. God hasn’t got a ‘plug’ upstairs. He doesn’t randomly ‘pull the plug’ on people every day and all of a sudden their time is up and they expire. No, this is not scriptural at all. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27 27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” It does not say there’s an ‘appointment’ for man’s death, no; it says every man is ‘appointed to die once’ and there’s a vast difference.” – 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
