Matthew 10:1- Rev. 16: 12-14
Sunday, January 13, 2018, the Year of Our Lord
Pastor Carolyn Sissom
The unclean spirits upon our land, in our soul and in our mouth are not just a national behavior problem. These are weapons of evil which will be released upon the earth at the time of the Sixth Vial Angel. As we enter in and come into agreement with these unclean spirits, we partake of the power of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet; thus giving them power. The media is the mouth of the beast (kosmos). The Churches are not standing against the evil mouth of the beast blaspheming the name of God.
Revelation 16: 12-14: “The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
Jesus Christ gave His church power against all unclean spirits to cast them out.
We are blessed to have a church fellowship and leadership who live separated lives, who walk “clean” before the LORD; keep the words of their mouth “clean;” keep their eyes “clean;” and their thoughts “clean.” So why am I preaching a sermon on “Unclean Spirits?”
We have become a nation without shame or repentance for the wickedness that is done in our land.
(Strong’s H2930 (Tame) means to become unclean, impure, (1) sexually; (2) religiously (30 ceremonially; Niphal to defile oneself, to be defiled (1) sexually, by idolatry; ceremonially; Piel to profane God’s name.)
Like Isaiah, we can say of our nation, woe is me, for I am undone!!! I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.
We, the church, have been given a Kingdom mandate to cleanse the land and people; to bring forth a Holy Nation of Sons in the image of Christ Jesus just as Israel was kept as a Holy Nation to bring forth the Christ.
Ezra 9:11: Which you commanded by your servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which you go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.
The Israelites were given the authority to possess the Promised Land and to clean the filthiness of the people out of the lands, and their abominations.
Jesus came and did establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. This is not the Kingdom of Israel as some propose. This is the Kingdom of God as it is in Heaven in every nation. “The Kingdom of God comes not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo here! Or lo there! For, behold the kingdom of God is within you.”
Matthew 10:1: Jesus called to Him His twelve disciples. He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease…(Vs 7) As you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils; freely you have received, freely give… (Vs. 11) Whatsoever city or town you shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go there. When you come into a house, salute it. If the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. Whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment, than for that city.
Again the church is sent to “posses the land for the Kingdom of Heaven.” “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean and I will receive you.” (2 Cor. 14-17) The Lord is not speaking here of the ceremonially unclean according to the Temple, but those who live unclean lives.
Paul’s teaching here includes marital and personal relationships. We never abandon our responsibility to reach the world; but we must steer clear of relationships that will divide our loyalty to Christ, compromise our testimony which is the Holiness and Righteousness of Christ; or cause us to agree with filthiness of people and their abominations. We have been called and chosen, to have power against unclean spirits and to cast them out. If we appease, compromise, placate, and pamper unclean spirits, then we have compromised the power of Christ Jesus and His Kingdom; thus giving power to the unclean spirits of the dragon, beast, and false prophet.
1 Co. 7:1: “Beloved ones, with promises like these, and because of our deepest respect and worship of God, we must remove everything from our lives that contaminates body and spirit, and continue to complete the development of holiness within us.
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.
