May 31, 2016, the Year of our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom


A few years ago, a minister friend of mine (I will not use his name to spare him the embarrassment) said to me, “Carolyn you are always in drama.”  Now he intended it as a “friendly put down”; but a “put down” nevertheless.  Just for the record, I didn’t take offense.


I forgot about it---until we were on the flight to Las Vegas this past Friday.  I believe the Holy Spirit brought it back to my memory.  I told Sandra, “Everything God does is surrounded by drama.”  Lightning, thunder, earthquakes, parting the Red Sea, manna from heaven, raising people from the dead, moving stones, tongues of fire, etc. etc.  When the Lord interjects and interrupts the kosmos, it is always with signs, wonders, and miracles.


The story I am going to tell you today is just one of the many times in my life when the Lord has supernaturally injected Himself into my life (in drama).   Most of you have heard part of this particular story, but the purpose tonight is to bring the story up-to-date.


Twenty-eight years ago Don and I were in Las Vegas.  He was there on business.  We stayed at the Flamingo Hilton.  I walked in to what was then the Flamingo room.  The room was empty.  The function of the room was a show-room.  The Holy Spirit spoke to me, “One day you will have a conference in this room.”


At that time, a conference was not on my mind.  I had started the church in Baton Rouge and had hosted a city-wide meeting or two, but was being stretched to fulfill the calling of Pastor and starting a new church.


During this same trip to Las Vegas, the Holy Spirit also spoke to me, “The strongest spirit over Las Vegas is rape.”


In the past twenty-eight years, this has not been on my mind, although not forgotten.  I have a very busy and full life.  I am not looking for “adventure” or another “job”.  I walk with the Lord in the realm of the “Spirit” and my life is a continuous adventure.


In January of this year (2016), Prophet Chuck Pierce gave me a Word at a meeting in Houston.  He said, “Twenty-eight years ago the Lord moved on you.  At that time, you did not know what to do with it.  It will come again in April and May of this year.  You will walk right into it.”

I thought of many things it could be because twenty-eight years ago, I was under a mighty visitation of the Lord on my life. 


In April, I received a notification from Kathie Walters that she would be holding a conference at the church of Pastors Mike and Ck Thompson in Las Vegas. I knew immediately this was that which was spoken of by the Prophet Chuck Pierce.  I made the reservations in April and completed the trip on May 31st.


As the message and Word of God is always an on-time Word, I have started teaching Joshua at the Tuesday Morning Bible Study.  When we are called by the Lord and walk in His will, we become the message.  .


 Joshua teaches us the lesson that FAITH is “the victory that overcomes the world (kosmos).” (1 Jn. 5:4).


The metaphorical principle of Jericho can be any stronghold “that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.  Every high thing that exalts itself against the Word of God.” (2 Cor. 10: 3-5)


This trip was to “spy out the land” and to “walk in to” this calling


Rape not only means sexual assault but wanton destruction or spoiling of a place or area: destruction, violation, ravaging, pillaging, and plundering.


Under the spirit of rape, we can include:


  1. Financial rape – gambling
  2. Sexual rape
  3. Sex trafficking
  4. Homosexuality
  5. Same-sex marriage
  6. The transgender spirit which has been loosed in the U.S.A.
  7. Harlot
  8. Pornography
  9. Fornication
  10. Adultery


(The Greek word for harlot is “porne” N.T. = (#4204).  #4203 is pornue and means to engage in unlawful lust or fornication.  So now we know where the word pornography originates.)


It is my consideration that Las Vegas would be a “tap root” for this spirit as well as a strong hold of the Canaanite Curse (see below 13-sins of Canaanite Curse).


May 27-31, 2016 – Las Vegas


Sandra Farley, Sonya West and I arrive attending  Kathie Walter’s conference at Word of Life Church, Henderson, Nevada, hosted by Pastors Mike and Ck Thompson.  If you live in that area, I commend this church as one led by the Holy Spirit.


We are focused on prayer and seeking the Lord for direction.


Saturday evening we take an “Uber car service” to Trump Tower International as our first stop.  Trump is now a “spiritual power” over the United States.  He has surely been empowered by the Lord to over turn the media and the establishment of the  Republican Party.  He has won the popular vote as the Republican candidate.  He has also backed down at least two international powers.  We prayed for Donald J. Trump.  We also prayed taking authority over the “spirit of rape” in Las Vegas manifesting through the gate opened for the transgender spirit by the spirit of anti-Christ.   I was very pleased that Trump International in Las Vegas is not a casino.


The Trump shuttle driver rescued us as we were trying to figure out how to get to the bus to ride up and down the Las Vegas Strip.


At every turn when we would pause to consider our next way, someone immediately showed up to give us direction or assistance.  I believe there were angels sent to show us our path.


The bus ride Saturday evening on a holiday weekend was a “reality check” that we were in way-over-our-heads; and this mission was definitely “folly”; or we were sent by the Lord.  In order to fulfill this “call”, there would have to be miraculous intervention from the Lord.  Exhausted, we catch a cab back to the hotel in Henderson.


2 Thess. 2:7: “The mystery of iniquity does already work; only He who now lets will let, until He be taken out of the way.  Then shall that wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth…”


When the Lord does a work, our Faith becomes a fact.  Faith can never be based on circumstances.  Faith knows the Lord Jesus Christ will intervene supernaturally as we watch God and the movement of the Holy Spirit on the earth.


When I woke on Sunday morning, I had regained my courage and as we continue to “walk into” this assignment, the Lord would provide and equip.


Kathie Walters graciously presented our ministry assignment to the congregation on Sunday.  I was given the opportunity to state the “call” and our present mission.  She requested a driver to take us to the Stratosphere (the tallest structure in the U.S.A.)  A gentleman, Thomas McGlade, came to me and offered to take us, which he did.  He served us as our guide to the top of the tower.


While sitting in the church service, I believe the Lord spoke to me that the “iniquity” of Las Vegas had come into fullness.


Brother Thomas was the man sent to us by God because of his great faith and deep knowledge of the Word of God.  By declaration, I took the Las Vegas strip to the court of heaven and the righteousness of Jesus Christ.


Ps. 98:9: “…for the Lord comes to judge the earth; with righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.” (world=tebal #H8398-inhabitants of world)


 I again prayed breaking the strong hold of the “spirit of rape” off the city as well as a national gateway for the transgender spirit.


Mt. 13:41 “The Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, them which do iniquity.”


As Brother Thomas and I were walking around the Stratosphere, we were waiting on Sandra and Sonya.  We “just happened” to sit at the point where traditionally thousands of marriage proposals have occurred.  I broke off the same-sex marriage spirit, and declared, “The Lord God made male and female in His image to reveal his glory.”


Monday morning (Memorial Day) we proceed to our final assignment on the journey to “spy out the land.”  We take the Uber car service to the Flamingo hotel.

The check-in lines were long.  However, once in our room it was very nice and comfortable.


Next---was our search for the room where the Lord spoke to me.  We made our way to the conference rooms----it was not there.  All the conference rooms were empty and no one was in sight.  Suddenly a gentleman appeared asking if he could help us.  I told him I was looking for the “show-room”.  He described one that that holds 200 people and is now called “The Bugsy Room”.


Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel (February 28, 1906[1] – June 20, 1947) was a Jewish American mobster. Siegel was known as one of the most "infamous and feared gangsters of his day".[3] Described as handsome and charismatic, he became one of the first front-page-celebrity gangsters.[4] He was also a driving force behind the development of the Las Vegas Strip.[5] Siegel was not only influential within the Jewish mob but, like his friend and fellow gangster Meyer Lansky, he also held significant influence within the Italian-American Mafia and the largely Italian-Jewish National Crime Syndicate.


Our new found guide offers to take us to the Bugsy Room.  He said, “You just happened to run into me before I  was leaving for the day.”  There was no personnel that day for the conference rooms because of the holiday.  Amazing – he has a key to the room.  We walk in and even though the room has been redecorated.  I know it is the room.


It is now being used primarily as the “show-room” for chorus girls, etc., i.e. spirit of rape.  The conference rooms are amazingly affordable; but the “show-room” may be more costly.  I have not yet pursued the pricing of the room.


After a short rest, we decide to ride the monorail and take a tour of the lobby of the Paris hotel.


CONCLUSION – To date- June 1, 2016, the Year of Our Lord


I have followed through and done all that I have been shown to do.  This is either the Lord Jesus Christ or I have the intelligence of scrambled eggs.  The Lord never gives us an option when He moves by His Spirit.  Prophet Johnny Barham gave me a “Word” about this “call” in late 2013.  He said, “The Lord has called “a man” to finance this conference.  If he obeys the Lord, the conference will be in the next year (2015).  If he does not, then the Lord will pay for the conference the next year (2016.)


It would appear the iniquity of Las Vegas had become full with the present open gateway in the United States of the Transgender restrooms legalizing the spirit of rape nationally.  To expose women and children to this transgender spirit is  “rape” of self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect.


For those of you reading this who have prophetic insight, you may note that I intentionally interjected our many modes of transportation on this trip.  There were at least twelve.  Also to add to the mystery, we were picked up at the Houston airport by a retired policeman driving a black Cadillac limo.   He was also dressed in a suit and tie as if royalty were being escorted.


I am in “rest” about this assignment.  There is absolutely nothing I can do to make this come to pass.  Perhaps we were to do the warfare (as spies) and other more prominent ministers will bring the conference.  Certainly whoever the Lord sends in will go as “warriors” to possess the land.  They must have the authority and impartation of boldness and courage.  They must have authority over the spirit of rape, gambling, drugs, alcohol, sexual perversion, etc.


I am a “God watcher”.  I watch Him and move according to His directive.  If I am to proceed, the way will be made clear.  Yes, it will cost me something.  The cost will be “Faith”.   We must know the Lord is with us, but more important, we must know we are with the Lord.


 The book of Joshua reveals a people who enter, overcome, and occupy the Land of God’s promise.  This is the principle of Victory by Faith.  For the New Testament Church, it is the principle of the overcomer who lives, walks, and has his being in Christ, in the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven.


Hab. 2:12: “Woe to him that builds a town with blood, and establishes a city by inquity!”


As believers, by FAITH, we are responsible to surmount formidable obstacles, engage in protracted warfare, and overcome fierce opposition.


I covet your prayers and good will.  If the Lord gives you a “Word” concerning the above, I will receive it in prayerful consideration.
