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
