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

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

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

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

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

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

The Dangers of Kabbalah

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“What on earth is a Pastor talking about Kabbalah for and what exactly is it? Well it’s fast becoming a serious cult in our day and age. When I look at pop stars today compared to when I was growing up, the occultic images and symbolism used within their music videos are rife. I see pyramids, false God’s, all seeing eyes, illuminati symbolism, Egyptian hieroglyphs etc. and the sad fact is our youth are totally blind to the influence of the occult on their lives when viewing these videos or listening to the music. There’s a thirst among the music industry for all things ancient and occultic and that thirst doesn’t seem to be quenched any time soon. I sincerely believe that one of the reasons for this occultic infiltration into the music industry is Kabbalah but certainly not the only reason. Followers of Hollywood Kabbalah, which is one of the three main branches of Kabbalah, often wear a red cotton bracelet around their wrists as a trademark of their membership and you’ll be surprised when I mention shortly, the famous list of celebrities who follow it’s false creed.” – Pastor Carl
