The Spirit of Truth – John Chapter 14 Part 1

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“John chapters 14, 15, 16 and 17 are pivotal because Jesus is about to go to the cross and during this difficult time He reveals the secrets of God’s Kingdom within these four chapters. The disciples have been with Jesus for almost three years and when they realize Jesus is leaving them, they panic. However, Jesus realizes their predicament and consoles them with news of a ‘comforter’ whom the Father will shortly send in His name. Within this chapter, we learn more about this mysterious ‘comforter,’ which is the Greek word ‘paraklete.’ This word is multi-faceted and in fact has a total of seven meanings. Within the Amplified version of the Bible we learn this word can mean, ‘Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby.’ Let’s find out more of about the specific roles of this comforter in your own life as we study this Gospel chapter together.” – Pastor Carl

Daniel Chapter 8 – ‘Antiochus Epiphanes’

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we’ll continue our study with Daniel chapter 8 specifically. Now, because of the accuracy of Daniel’s visions coming to pass, it has caused several liberals scholars to claim the Book of Daniel is a complete forgery. They claim it was written in about the second century AD because they postulate anyone accurately predicting future world empires is simply impossible! However, God sealed up a time capsule to prove the Book of Daniel to be accurate by allowing the ‘Qumran’ or ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ to be discovered in 1946. In these scrolls, a complete copy of the Book of Daniel was found, containing the very predictions that exactly match the writings of Daniel, found within the pages of our King James Bible. This threw a ‘wrench in the works’ and liberal scholars had no defense against this monumental discovery of historically accurate parchments, proving once and for all, the prophecies of Daniel in the 6th century BC, not only came to pass exactly as he predicted but the sequence of empires was precise also. ” – Pastor Carl

The True Vine

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Are you aware of the pruning mechanism that occurs in your life? John Chapter fifteen reveals a powerful illustration in which God the Father is revealed as the ‘husbandmen’ or ‘cultivator.’ God desires fruit from you, whether you realize it or not. This fruit takes time to grow. In this chapter of the Gospels we learn about our role as a ‘branch’ in God’s tree. Jesus is ‘the vine’ to which we ‘branches’ must remain attached. If we are to bear fruit on a continual basis in our lives, we must voluntarily choose to be attached to Christ’s vine. Once we’re attached, His word must abide within us. Once these two criteria are met, only then can the Father harvest the fruit that He so desires. The Father ‘prunes’ us occasionally to bear more fruit down the road. We all know the pruning process isn’t necessarily comfortable but it’s requisite and for our benefit. We are to be fruit bearers and this powerful chapter describes the process that we are all subject to, on an ongoing basis.” – 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

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

Are you handed over to the tormentors?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Let me ask you this, have you been handed over to the tormentors?…Doesn’t sound like fun does it? What an odd question you might ask, and who are these tormentors anyway? Well the Gospels have the answer and especially the Gospel of Matthew. Here’s the deal, if you’re lacking joy and peace in your life for sustained periods of weeks, months or even years, then there’s something wrong with your Christian walk friend! Evidently you’re not experiencing the abundant, joyful ‘zoë’ life that Christ provided for you, when He died on the cross and rose again. It’s not the normal condition of a ‘Spirit filled Christian,’ to just mope around in life, from one day to the next, feeling down in the dumps and full of angst. This should not be the ‘status quo’ for us. Satan could be robbing your ‘joy’ and it’s time to take it back! And why not during this broadcast? In fact I suggest you could be under demonic spiritual attack or ‘oppression’ as it’s called, without realizing it because of the legal grounds you’ve given Satan in the spiritual realm by giving him place (Eph 4:27).” – 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

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
