The Gift of Faith

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“As mentioned in my introductory broadcast of the spiritual gifts, ‘the gift of faith,’ is the first of the three power gifts. Let’s be very clear from the outset that faith could be described as the ‘currency of God’s Kingdom.’ Firstly, there’s ‘saving faith’ granted to each man to enter the kingdom of God as outlined in Rom 12:3. We also know that faith can increase in one’s life by hearing the word of God over and over which Romans 10:17 makes very clear. Jude 20 also demonstrates that faith can be built upon by ‘praying in the Holy Ghost,’ but none of these attributes of faith can be included within the jurisdiction of ‘the gift of faith.’ ‘The gift of faith’ is unique because it’s given supernaturally for a period of time, in contrast to ‘general’ or ‘saving faith’ mentioned in the Book of Romans. It’s a gift given to the believer in order that he or she might receive miracles in their life. ” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Word of Knowledge

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we will focus upon ‘the gift of the word of knowledge.’ Now there’s no mention of ‘the gift of knowledge’ in the Bible specifically, as some surmise. Like I said before, God can empower you with wisdom or knowledge as outlined in Daniel 1:17, where Daniel and his three friends were bestowed with ‘knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom.’ But today I’m talking about ‘the gift of the word of knowledge,’ as outlined in first Corinthians chapter twelve. Remember, ‘the word of knowledge’ falls under the umbrella of the ‘revelation gifts.’ The three revelation gifts are ‘the word of wisdom’, the ‘word of knowledge’ and ‘the discerning of spirits’ because when these gifts are in operation, they ‘reveal’ something to us. The gift of ‘the word of knowledge’ by definition is, ‘supernatural revelation by the Holy Ghost of certain facts in the mind of God, concerning the past or present, but not the future.'” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Word of Wisdom

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Every gift works according to the Holy Spirit, not our spirit. We’re not working or manipulating the spiritual gifts, but we allow the Holy Spirit to manifest them through us by making ourselves available and receptive to His unction. However, if people have wrongly judged these gifts, as no longer in operation today or are in complete ignorance of them, they’ll not work through them. God works through willing vessels. We have to be careful because sometimes we may want to operate in a certain gift but the Holy Spirit does not want us to, therefore, we must always yield to His desires. In other words to one person, ‘the word of wisdom’ may be given and to another person ‘the word of knowledge’, and to another person ‘the gift of faith’ and so on, but we don’t personally choose which gifts are going to manifest. The Holy Spirit divides these gifts between us as He wills, not as we will it. In fact there are some gifts people may operate in often and there are some gifts a person may never operate in, during their lifetime.” – Pastor Carl

God speaks to us today

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“It’s crucial that you know God speaks to you today and not only that, but He strongly desires and yearns for this communication. Now religious people will fight me tooth and nail on this, but by the end of this broadcast you will know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Lord still speaks today. In fact He actually craves for a time of fellowship with you, daily. Let me start out by clarifying that God sees you as a unique individual and thinks about you often. Do I have proof of this? I sure do. Check out Psalm 139:7-18, 17How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. God clearly wants to communicate with you as this scripture attests. His thoughts towards you are almost countless and He loves you so much!” – Pastor Carl

The Names of God

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Within this theme of ‘names,’ there are the names of God in English, the Hebrew names of God, then there’s about 33 names for the Holy Spirit in scripture, and finally for Christ alone, there are 117 names for Him also! The subject of names is very extensive and one broadcast isn’t enough to cover it all! I will certainly discuss all these other names at another time, so stay tuned but today we’ll focus directly upon the names of ‘God the Father.’ Now, we no longer hold names in high esteem as humanity once did in times of antiquity. ‘Back in the day,’ a name really meant something. You were granted a name by your parents because in Biblical times, it was arguably a prophetic expression of what the child would become or achieve in his lifetime. In the past, names also identified the character or nature of the person.” – Pastor Carl

The Fear of the Lord

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Let me ask you; is it a good thing to have a ‘fear of the Lord?’…Well the term, ‘fear of the Lord’ is mentioned 30 times in scripture and the vast majority of occurrences are in the Old Testament. But there are however, well over one hundred references to the fear of God in a positive sense. Now what does it really mean to have a “fear of God” or a “fear of the Lord?” Well the word ‘fear’ in Hebrew is usually either pa-khad or yir-ah. Pa-khad means ‘terror’, ‘dread’ or the literal emotion of fear that one experiences in dangerous situations. The other Hebrew term for ‘fear’ is yir-ah and in contrast means ‘piety’, ‘a state of reverence’, ‘worship’ or ‘awesomeness.’ So which one of these definitions best describes the reverential fear we should harbor for our Father in Heaven? The answer is both.” – Pastor Carl

12 Reasons why evolution is a lie

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Evolutionary theory (not fact I might add) is of the opinion that we developed from a primordial protozoa; merely an algae or amoebae from a water pool. Evolutionists claim that, “over millions and millions of years,” man developed from an algae over a series of transformational events into the sophisticated human beings you see walking around today. In a nutshell they suggest the algae grew an eye, and then became a fish, which then became a mammal, then an ape and finally became man in his glorious form. Basically, their premise is that we evolved from ‘molecule to man’ or ‘particle to person’. This is known as ‘macro-evolutionary theory.’ Despite much evidence for ‘micro-evolution’ within the animal kingdom, there is no evidence of ‘macro-evolution’ whatsoever, as many evolutionists would have us believe. However, macro-evolution is indeed the platform from which their deceptive theory of evolution is spearheaded.” – Pastor Carl

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
