THE WORD OF GOD

Sunday, August 14, 2016, the Year of Our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom

 

Week after week I come before the church as we watch another crisis of heaven and earth being shaken.  Our hearts are heavy for our friends and family in Baton Rouge, La.  The flood is affecting, disrupting and destroying the property of thousands of people.  My children and their home are safe (so far), but their lives have again been disrupted.  The people of Baton Rouge, La. have still not recovered spiritually and emotionally from the attack from the recent police shootings and the invasion into the city by the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter groups.   

 

I received many blessings from our conference, The Victory of Faith.  The Lord moved sovereignly in me personally; as I pray He did for each and every person who attended.  Certainly I was not without being attacked by the “prince of the power of the air” as we boldly confronted his world/kosmos.  The prince of the power of the air attacked my respiratory system before and after the conference.  I am now almost fully recovered.   It is our inheritance to be given authority over plagues, viruses, chemicals , etc. which attack us through the air.  The priests of old were given the authority of the anointing of the fire pan from the Brazen Altar to sprinkle over the people to break the plagues off the land. (Number 16: 46-47).  Jesus Christ became the fire pan to give us power over the prince of the power of the air.

 

From the WORD OF GOD which came forth at the conference, there was a sealing and settling work of the Holy Spirit within me.  I am settled that all of my days and ministry have been established and set in Heaven.  My future and the future of Eastgate Church have been written and sealed in Heaven.  I have no concern for finances, where we shall meet, where I will live, my comings and goings as well as the comings and goings of the congregation have all been settled.  Of course, I could willfully disobey the LORD and miss Him.   Why would I want to do that?  The only way I could miss my destiny is He lift His grace from my life.  I am comforted.

 

Paul said it best” “Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God.”

 

I have never doubted that I was a minister according to the dispensation of God; but whoever I am in Christ, it will be.  There is a new sealing. 

 

Today I was blessed by a message sent to me from Tayo Fasan of Nigeria.  The name of his message is “Another Look @ Things “from” God and Things “of” God – Part I.”  I will be anxious to receive Part 2.

 

“The bible contains promises or Words from God (which unbelievers and carnal believers can or have accessed) but most importantly, THE WORD OF GOD, which few believers and even ministers have discerned till date---because it has to do with God’s secret that must be revealed in appointed seasons and to those whom the Godhead grants sure mercies unto.” (Tayo Fasan) 

 

So I began a word search on THE WORD OF GOD.  There are (48) exact verses in the Holy Bible using “THE WORD OF GOD.” 

 

John 10:35 caught my Spirit.  Jesus was rebuking the Jews who had taken up stones to stone Him.  They accused Him of blasphemy that being a man He had said He was the Son of God.  Jesus answered them, is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the WORD OF GOD came, and the Scripture cannot be broke; say you of Him, Whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world that I blasphemed because I said, I am the Son of God.”

 

Jesus is quoting Ps. 82:6: “I said: Ye are gods, and all of you the sons of the Most High.”

 

Jesus does not deny that He is God, equal to the Father; rather, He confirms His divinity by referring to the law.  “If you approve men who have been deified by grace and are (called) gods, why do you condemn Me, Who am God by nature, the One Whom the Father has sanctified and set apart to be slain by the world?”  Whatever God has set apart is holy.  God sanctified Jesus for the salvation of the world.  He is God the Son.  A man who has been made Godlike by grace cannot save.  God alone can save.  They are called gods, unto whom the Word of God came.  The WORD OF GOD is (Jesus Christ).  Jesus Christ is the Son of God, not a creature and is God by essence and nature.  Being the WORD OF GOD by nature, He is not made divine by grace but bestows divinity upon men.  There are men who have been made Godlike by grace.  Jesus Christ is the WORD OF GOD dwelling in them.  Unto whom the Word of God camemeans those with whom Christ was present and in whom He dwelt.  Carnal human nature would have remained forever incapable of conversing and communing with God had not the WORD OF GOD became flesh and dwelt among us.

 

The scripture confirms to us that Jesus Christ came “FROM GOD”.   John 16:27: “For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.”

 

There is another one who was sent “FROM GOD”, whose name was John. (Jn. 1:6).

 

The angel Gabriel was sent “FROM GOD.

 

There are no other men or angels mentioned in the Holy Script who were ‘FROM GOD.”

 

Our brother Tayo Fasan reveals in his message, “There is a wisdom FROM GOD.”

 

1 Co. 1:30: “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God---and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”

 

“The Cherubs of the third heaven have access to the highest form of this wisdom.  One of them (Satan) fell and perverted (inverted) this order of this wisdom in him. (Ez. 28:15) and he has been reigning over generations of fallen men ever since.  Adam, his sons, the patriarchs, Solomon and men over generations before Jesus Christ accessed this order of wisdom in different degrees.” (Tayo Fasan)

 

Some of you may recall the Lord speaking to me in the year 2000, telling me there were three kinds of Wisdom.  Through these many years I have studied the Wisdom of God always seeking Him for His Wisdom.

 

Tayo: “There is the Wisdom of God.  This was the wisdom packaged in the tree of life but despised by Adam.  Such was the wisdom meant to make him wiser than the devil.  Just like most generations of believers, Adam despised learning it because of the demands that it places on everyone that would partake of (inherit) it, i.e. the demand of losing what we call “our life” (Mt. 10:39).  This wisdom was repackaged and fully revealed by God in and through the last Adam (Christ Jesus), and then unto the Apostles.” (T.F.)

 

This wisdom is hidden before the world/aion.  But we speak the wisdom of God in mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world (aion) unto our glory.”

 

The world/aion speaks of an unbroken age, perpetuity of time, eternal period of time; an age.

 

 “This Wisdom of God remains the only answer to the gates of hell/the wiles of Satan.” (T.F.)

 

Tayo:  There is a Faith FROM GOD:  A selfless edition of this faith was what gave birth to the good reports (breakthroughs) enumerated in Heb. 11: 1-39a.  The Corinthian church once struggled from being weaned from this faith, while the Hebrew church who had graduated above this faith and been exposed to the next faith (the faith of the Son of God) wanted to draw back from it, by remaining with this milky dimension of faith.” (T.F.) 

 

Heb. 5: 12-13: “…you have need that one teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.  For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness; for he is a babe.  Strong meat belongs to them who are of full age…”

 

“Some in the early church (1 Cor. 3:1-2) and many in the corporate church today have refused to be weaned from it (Isa. 28:9) because of the carnal solutions/provisions it guarantees, which carnal minds can’t see beyond.  Settling with this form of faith has limited many from coming into spiritual maturity.   A stronger edition of faith guarantees i.e. the Faith of God (or of God’s elect).

 

Because of the fall of man, God had to start and train the likes of Abraham with faith toward God, so man (believers) can have a foundation to relate with unseen things (promises).  This dimension, however, could not accommodate the weights of Kingdom truths which were required to build man to become a habitation for the Spirit. Jesus Christ came to establish the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven.  Until he came Old Testament faith could bear the weight of His Kingdom.

 

Acts 20:32: “Now brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and give you an inheritance among all then which are sanctified.” 

 

Eph. 2:22: “In whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.”

 

This faith is called faith toward God in the Old Testament (Heb. 6:1b) or Faith in the Lord Jesus in the New Testament. (Eph. 1:15; Col. 1:4)

 

Acts 20:21: “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

 

The carnal believer who still depends on his natural judgment, and whose eyes of his understanding has not been enlightened (Eph. 1: 17-18) is not yet able to discern or over come the world (kosmos) (1 Jn. 2:15).” (T.F.)

 

There is a Faith that is Of God:  This faith is the key that opens up the promise of the New Testament. (Heb. 11:39b; 1 Jn. 2:25)

 

Old Testament Faith of a good report:

Heb. 11:39b:  These all having obtained a good report through faith received not the promise.”

 

New Testament Faith: “This is the promise the he has promised us, even eternal life.”

 

This is the faith Christ used to inherit God I (not material things which perish with use).  This faith is the machinery that the Godhead uses to strip us of the sinful nature in us that secretly or openly loves the world/kosmos.” (T.F.)

 

1 Jo. 2:15: “Love not the world (kosmos), neither the things that are in the world, if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

 

The “kosmos” is the world system which is in opposition to God and the ways of the God.  It is the world system and economy under the spirit of the antichrist.

 

This week I received a revelation while in conversation with a friend.  I was saying to her the spirit of divorce was released in the kosmos during your parents generation (those now in their 60’s).  The spirit of deception through drugs and alcohol was released to the generation now in their 40’s and 50’s.  The spirit of lewdness, fornication, living together has been released upon those in their 20-30’s.  A spirit of the beast has now been loosed upon the world/kosmos to the children.  This came in through ISIS and is re-enforced with all the death and killing on television.  These are spirits of the (age) within the kosmos.

 

This is why we must not love the world/kosmos neither the things that are in the world because gross darkness is upon the peoples of the earth.

 

“This faith is born of God (1 Jn. 5: 1-5) and it empowers us with a victory that has a superior intelligence to that of sin (the world).  It is responsible for overcoming the world.  God has walked with generations of old faithful like Noah and others, but this faith was fully born when the father walked in the Son from the age of 12 to the age of 30.  When he was faced with the world and it’s wisdom and overcame it by this faith.  This faith is alien to Satan’s comprehension and carries the life-exchanging-empowerment that enables a believing believer to trade “his life” (the flesh/carnal life) in preparation for God’s divine nature.” (T.F.)

 

1 Jn. 5:18: “We know that whosoever is born of God does not sin; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not.”

 

1 Jn. 5:1: “Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and every one that loves him that begat loves him also that is begotten of him.”

 

We cannot say the church of the 21st Century walks in this Victory of Faith.  Yet it is our inheritance in Jesus Christ.  Surely the Apostles and early church had the faith to overcome the World/kosmos.  Surely there will arise an overcoming, triumphant church who will overcome the world/kosmos.

 

‘There is a Righteousness From God and There is a Righteousness of God.  There are separations that came from God, and Separations that is of God.  There are powers from God, and there is a power that is of God.

 

The power from God was manifested through Genesis up until Jesus showed up with the Power of God.” 

 

I will continue this study as I am being blessed.

 

Next week unless the storm in Louisiana is a deterrent, I will be ministering in Albany, Louisiana at The Gathering Place.
