VESSELS OF GLORY
The writer’s of the Old and New Testament were acquainted with the glory of God.
Rev. 1: 13-18: In the midst of the seven lamp stands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the last.”
Ez. 1:26-28: Above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.
Paul spoke so often of this kind of “glory” that subsequent readers have a tendency to pass over the word, much as they do the word grace. Paul spoke about this kind of “glory” in every epistle.
Paul’s treatment of “the glory” identified a “state of being.” In modern theology, many have factored the glory out, just as they have factored out the ministry of angels, the power of the Lord’s Supper, and the power of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The answer to Jesus’ prayer for glory to be manifested was seen first at Pentecost and then multiple times throughout history. What the early church described as “cloven tongues of fire,” came not only upon them, but was also inside them.
They glowed with supernatural power. (Stephen’s appearance was hailed to be as glorious as an angel.) So much glory power resided in those early disciples that, “they turned the world upside down.”
They reacted like freshly created Divine creatures. They were filled with His (I AM) Glory. Every creature in heaven possesses “that kind of glory”
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.
