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

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

Should we tithe?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we’re going to talk about a topic so controversial that quite frankly it can even divide many churches. This topic is ‘tithing’ and there’re lots of arguments for and against it but I hope to add some clarity to this discussion. Now, we at DHOP believe in ‘tithing.’ “Well of course you do Pastor, because all preachers want today is your money…right?” Wrong friend, but I will say this whole message of ‘giving to God’ has been used and abused down the years; that’s for sure. To be honest, some people are so turned off about giving to God; they don’t even attend church anymore! This is really sad because Hebrews 10:25, makes it clear that, “ We should not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” ‘The day’ in this passage is the return of Jesus Christ and we should not forsake fellowship with one another and our assembling together, until that wonderful day.” – Pastor Carl

Radical Islam

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Does the Quran which millions of Muslims hold dear and even on par with the Bible in their eyes, actually teach ‘love, peace and harmony’ with other religions? Or are these so called ‘Islamic extremists’ we see on television, actually carrying out the literal instructions of the prophet Muhammad? Could the people who performed the recent terror attacks all across Europe, really be ‘extremists’ or merely compliant with the written instructions and commands of Muhammad? Are they in fact justified in their beliefs by killing innocent men, women and children who aren’t followers of Allah? And where exactly does it command this outrageous behavior in their writings?…This is a very dangerous broadcast because if I were proclaiming this message on the internet or in my homeland of Great Britain, it would most assuredly be ‘censored’ or even labeled ‘hate speech’ by our politically correct media. Nonetheless, it’s my job as a Pastor to tell you the truth, regardless of the consequences and that’s what I’m going to do in this broadcast.” – 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

Persistence in Prayer (Luke 18)

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today I’d like to talk about prayer but particularly, ‘persistence’ in prayer. You know the ‘old timers’ would often declare, “We need to storm the gates of heaven, bind Satan and pray until God hears you.” Well I believe there’s some truth in that statement; however, much has been said down the years regarding persistence in prayer and sometimes for the wrong reasons. Having studied the scriptures for a little bit; I firmly believe that God’s ability to intervene in our lives is greatly impacted by our personal prayer life or lack thereof. This may seem an obvious statement but let me put it to you another way; I truly believe Gods ability to move in our lives can be ‘restricted’ by our prayer life. Therefore, if we’re not diligent in some areas, we can miss out on seeing God’s best come to pass in our lives. Firstly, we have to realize that God’s not deaf. He hears us the first time when we ask Him for something. When Jesus said in Matt 7:7 and Luke 11:19, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you,” he wasn’t urging us to repeat the same petition over and over again. He was stressing that we need to be persistent in our intentions when it comes to prayer and don’t quit until we get an answer.” – Pastor Carl

Are you serving God or money?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon“. Now these are Jesus words in Mt 6:24. In Aramaic, (the language that many people believe Jesus spoke), the word for money or wealth is called mammon. In two instances Matthew 6:24 and Luke 16:13, “mammon” is identified as a rival to God for the loyalty of the disciples and the same warning is pertinent to us today. Jesus asks us—”who will you obey: God or money?” It’s impossible to serve this god called “mammon” and the true Yahweh God at the same time. The New Testament calls money, “uncertain riches” for a reason. They’re so labeled because they cannot be trusted, but God can and He offers the greatest return of investment of all when we sow into His Kingdom! In 1 Timothy 6:17, the Apostle Paul warns the rich not to be ‘high minded’,” 17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” This word ‘high-minded’ in the modern vernacular really means ‘arrogant’ and there’s potential for the rich to become arrogant because they have so much money at their disposal.” – Pastor Carl
