2 JOHN – “Loving Truth”
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
January 22, 2019, the Year of Our Lord
Pastor Carolyn Sissom
The book of 2 John points us to the truth and encourages us to hold it fast and never let it go. It is the “Living Truth” — Jesus Christ is the “Living Truth.” The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth.
Truth generates love, and love will always be faithful to the truth. To love God is to love his truth and cherish it to our hearts.
Because of the shortness of this letter, I am going to take the luxury of using both the Passion Translation and the New King James Versions.
2 Jn. 1-3: The Elder, to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth. Because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever. Grace, mercy, and peace will be yours from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. (NKJV)
This is the only time in Scripture the expression the Son of the Father is used. Jesus is described in the Gospel of John as the only begotten Son. The incarnation is the very foundation of Christianity and the purpose of John writing this letter.
2 Jn. 1-3: From the elder to God’s chosen woman and her children. I love you all as those who are in the truth. And I’m not the only one, for all who come to know the truth share my love for you; because of the living truth that has a permanent home in us and will be with us forever. God our Father and Jesus Christ, his Son, will release to us overflowing grace, mercy, and peace, filled with true love. (PT)
In 1990, the call came to start a church. We officially incorporated. In retrospect, I now know that we were chosen to be a part of the ushering in of the Third Day Glory Church. At the time, I was preaching by vision and Spirit of Revelation. As in every move of God, we came under heavy persecutions. However, the Lord was more than faithful. He raised up dear Pastors, Prophets and Ministries to stand with us. Those great warriors continue to be a part of the Eldership of this ministry.
We had incredible visitations and mighty outpourings of the Glory of God in our meetings. Hindsight now reveals that without the persecution, we would never have dug in. Also, we had to be tested by persecution in order to overcome and be proven to produce fruit 30-60-100 fold.
In 1997, my husband’s company moved us to Houston, After a much needed rest and time to reflect on what had transpired in those 7-years in Baton Rouge, the Lord again directed me to start a new work here in Houston.
This came in along with the Golden Glory Revival. The Lord did not tell me that I would be a conduit of the Golden Glory, but that I was to prophesy it. I was preparing to teach on Gift of Miracles at a community Bible Study. Our friends, Barney and Joann Fuller, mailed me the book by Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory. I read the book on a flight to Los Angeles. That night I awoke, sitting straight up in my bed. The room was filled with golden angels. They were all singing the song recorded by Candy Christmas, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, THAT’S MY STORY.”
Prior to this visitation, the Lord spoke to me around November 2000, that wherever I went, I was to declare the Glory of God.
It seems that no matter where I preach in the Bible, I end up with only one message, the declaration of the Glory of God: Feast of Tabernacles, The Holy of Holies, the Mountain of the Last Days,The Overcomer, The Sons of God, The Kingdom of God, The Joseph Company, The Bride of Christ, The 144,000, The Remnant, Those who pass under the Rod, The Branch of the Lord, Those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes, Mt. Zion, New Jerusalem, etc. etc. All of this plus more tell only one story, “GLORY GLORY GLORY.
We are an apostolic ministry as well as prophetic. Our desire is to reveal Jesus Christ in the fulness of the Majesty of His Great power and Glory
“Until we all come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.“
Carolyn Sissom, Pastor.
