O MY GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, That's My Story Print E-mail




Sunday, September 24, 2017, the Year of Our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom


This past week our church experienced the manifestation of the sign and wonder known as the Golden Glory; through the ministry of Apostle Clay Nash.  Normally when I invite a minister who I know moves by grace in a particular gifting of the Holy Spirit, I prepare the church with a teaching.  Because of the challenges we have experienced with Hurricane Harvey, we just went with it.  We must always be ready for the suddenlies of the LORD.


Daniel 4:2:  I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked for me.


As we approach the season of the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, it is timely to magnify the Glory of God.  As you know, the LORD spoke to me in the year 2000 about the three main feasts.  The Passover Feast is Jesus Christ the Lamb of God.  The Feast of Pentecost is the Holy Spirit.  The Feast of Tabernacles is the Glory of God. 


That the Holy Spirit blessed us with an outpouring of a visitation of His Glory is “on time” for the expected greater revelation of the Sons of God. 


Mark 16: 17-20:  And these signs shall follow them that believe…and they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.  Amen.  “Signs and wonders are a natural result of the preaching of the gospel.  We should expect them to be there.  And we should not expect just one or two.  One miracle should lead to another miracle.  God wants to give us an increasing progression of the miraculous, until we come into the supernatural, the realm of the miraculous” (Ruth Ward Heflin-Golden Glory).


Spiritual ministry means a ministry that meets the needs of man through the anointing and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit.  It is the gospel of the Kingdom in supernatural demonstration and power.  It is the Gospel in action.


I came into revelation of this sign and wonder through a dream and divine intervention of the LORD.


In the year 2000, I had been seeking the LORD on how He would have me teach Gift of Miracles in a Bible Study I was teaching in Katy, TX.  On Friday, April 28, 2000, I received in the mail a letter from my friends, Barney and Joanne Fuller along with the book, “Golden Glory” by Ruth Ward Heflin.  Like many Christians during that season, Joanne and I had discussed the “gold dust phenomenon” on their last visit to Katy.  We were both reserving our judgment of the integrity of this manifestation of God’s glory.   (Mt. 7:22; 2 Th. 2: 10-12; Rev. 13:14; Rev. 19:20; Mt. 24:24).


The next day Don and I left for Los Angeles.  I took the book along to read.  I knew the LORD had put it in my hands to prepare me to teach gift of miracles.  As I read, I knew I was reading a book which was bearing witness to the power and glory of God.


We arrived in L. A. on Sunday night.  I had a dream about this sign and wonder:




“My friend, Eloise, was standing in a Christian book store with her niece making a purchase of the book, Golden Glory.”  She had on a gold robe.  Both she and her niece had red/gold hair; and golden oil was flowing from Eloise’s hands.  The song, O My Glory, Glory, Glory, That’s My Story was being sung in the dream.  In the dream, the room was full of golden angels and they were singing the song.  I awoke to the audible sound of the voices of the angels filling the room.  I felt Eloise would have the gift of miracles of golden glory operating in her life.  I believe it was in this dream, the Lord spoke to me that I would prophesy the golden glory, but I would not carry it.


Paul wrote in Galatians 1:1: The gospel he preached came through the revelation of Jesus Christ. If you follow my teachings, you know I glean and quote from great men and women of God.  But before I teach or preach, I receive my revelation of what I am teaching direct from Jesus.  I continue to learn daily and weekly from the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.


Through the ministry of the gift of the Holy Spirit through his servant, Clay Nash, the Apostolic anointing of miracles, prophecy, inner healing, financial and marital restoration, activation of ministry, etc. were released in the meetings. Faith was re-fired.  Hope was restored.  After the storm, Houston, Texas needed miracles and an impartation of fire and power. 


1 Cor. 2 4-5: My speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but  in demonstration of the Spirit and of power; that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power (dunamis) of God.


The demonstration of the Holy Spirit is a “Doing” and a “Practicing” of that which we teach.


A “Doing” ministry utilizes the three doing or power manifestations of the Holy Spirit; namely, Faith, the Workings of Miracles, and the Gifts of Healings. (1 Cor. 12: 8-10).


Hebrews 11:6:  Without faith it is impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


  1. Faith is a spiritual force.  God is a spirit.  He is a faith God who is only pleased by faith.
  2. Faith is the absence of doubt; the opposite of fear. (2 Tim 1:7).  For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  3. Faith is in the present tense.  NOW FAITH IS the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
  4. Faith is a gift.  It is an impartation of the Lord. (Rom. 12:3) I say, through the grace given unto me, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.  A big ego and a charismatic personality do not constitute the supernatural power of “Faith”. 
  5. Faith is a fruit.  It grows. Rom.1:17 Therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith. (Gal. 5: 22-23).
  6. Faith comes by the hearing of the Word of God. (Rom. 10:17) Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
  7. Faith speaks.  Rom 10: 6-10: But the righteousness which is by faith speaks
  8. We live by His faith.  Gal. 2:10:  I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loves me, and gave himself for me.


The Gifts of the Holy Spirit fall into three categories:


  1. SPEAKING MINISTRY:  Divers kinds of tongues; Interpretation of tongues; and Prophecy.
  2. KNOWING MINISTRY: Word of knowledge; Word of Wisdom; Discerning of spirits.
  3. DOING MINISTRY: These power or action gifts enable us to ACT (do the works of) Act like God:
    1. Faith---The God-given ability to believe God for the impossible.
    2. Working of Miracles – The God-given ability to perform the impossible.
    3. Gifts of Healings – The God-given ability to impart healing for the physical body at certain specific times.


I came to the awakening of Gift of Miracles in 1995.  My Gifts are stronger in Gift of Faith, Knowing Ministry, Speaking Ministry, and Gifts of Healings through Gift of Faith.


I am a former-spiritual snob.  I thank God that He loved me enough to deliver me from an elitist attitude of my faith.  I say this with grave respect to the Gift of Faith required in those who operate in the Gift of Miracles.  Prior to 1995, I had experienced many miracles, deliverances and healings through the Gift of Faith and Gifts of healings.  I didn’t “get” the need to use “things” to release God’s power for miracles.  By things, I am referring to items used as points of contact.   It was not that I didn’t believe in the gift, but the exercise of the gift by modern evangelists seemed to necessitate it being purchased. (Act. 8:20).


In 1995, I was invited to participate in a miracle revival birthed by Bishop Dwight D. Pate at Church Point ministries in Baton Rouge, La.  Also participating in this revival was Evangelist G. W. Delatte of Knoxville, Tennessee and Pastor Wilbert Scott of Baton Rouge, La.  Through this revival and much prayer and study on my part, I came to the understanding that Gift of Faith, Gifts of Healings and Gifts of Working of Miracles are completely separate gifts and have their own unique way of coming into existence.  Yet, they work closely together when God’s power manifests.


The slower the scholar, the more God will forbear to teach.  Faith will always require risk of things not seen.


Gift of Miracles is most often manifested through the Office of the Apostle and the Evangelist.  It is also a separate body ministry described in 1 Cor. 12:29 as Workers of Miracles.  We are told to earnestly desire this gift (1 Co. 12:31) and to not neglect the gift.  It can be imparted by grace through prophecy and laying on of hands (1 Ti. 4:14).  The Evangelist is the gatherer in the 5-fold ministry.  Gift of Miracles gathers the people, raises their faith level, and then God meets them.  The Apostle governs.  As we are now experiencing the restoration of the apostolic power to the church, we will continue to experience an increase in miracles, signs and wonders.  The stumbling block of those in the flesh will be if they use the Gift for fame or gain.  Through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people…believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women. (Act. 5: 12-14).


Faith says that when we know something is from God, we can run straight forward into it. 


He that ministers to you the Spirit, and works miracles among you, is it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?


A miracle is a free gift from God.  It can’t be earned, bought, or deserved.  This particular gift knows no respecter of persons.  It is a great equalizer.  An 80-year old saint and a new born Christian receive of this free gift equally.  This same grace was made available to the Gentiles when they received the Holy Spirit by faith in Jesus Christ and all the benefits of the Kingdom of Grace.  God was and is no respecter of persons between the faithful Jew who obeyed the law and the pagan Gentiles.


That is what makes gift of miracles so much fun.  It takes away all struggling.  As a Pastor, this is one of the reasons I was slow in seeing the long-term benefit of miracles (Not that I didn’t appreciate miracles---I would and will take all I can get).  I was trying to help people mature, stabilize commit and be fruitful.  This is valid and important in the Kingdom.  However, Gift of Miracles shows no preference over the fruitful, mature saint and a sin-soaked pagan.


We will never get so full of faith, or become so mature that we no longer require miracles.  Miracles are a part of the blessedness of the Kingdom of God.  Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved by God among you, by miracles, signs and wonders, which God did by him in the midst of you, and you yourselves know this.” (Acts 2:22)  Jesus said we will do even greater works.  This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.”


To activate this gift seems to be by declaring it and moving out in Faith.  The way to develop a healing ministry is by laying hands on the heads of many sick people.  Just find people who need a miracle and lay your hands on them and believe. 


Daniel 4:2:  I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked for me. How great are His signs, and how mighty His wonders!  His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.


John 11:40:  Jesus said to her, Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?


Purposes of Miracles:


Reveal God:  Ex. 7:5; 9:29; Dt. 4:33; Ex. 7:17:  Thus says the Lord, in this you shall know that I am the Lord…

Produce faith in God: Ps. 106:8:  He saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.

Produce Fear of God: 1 SA. 12:17-18; Da. 6:20

Encourage obedience: Ex. 19:4; Dt. 29:5; Ps. 78:10

Glorify God:  Lk. 5:25; Jn. 11:4:  Jesus said, this sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be thereby glorified.

Testify of Jesus: Mt. 11:3; Jn. 2:11; Heb. 2:4: God also bearing them (the apostles) witness (of Jesus) both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost according to his own will.

Glorify Jesus: Act. 3:16:  Faith in His name…

Testify to God’s Servants: Ex. 4:2; Zech. 2:9; Acts 2:22

Preserve the righteous: Da. 3:28

Changed wicked purposes:  Ex. 3:19


John 14:12: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Scripture from K.J.V.; I entered into the labors of Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory;  The Tongue of the Learned by: K. J. Varner with J. L. Dutton; Teaching by Carolyn Sissom May 10, 2000, Gift of Miracles;  Dream, Comments, Testimonies, and Conclusions are my own and not meant to reflect the views of those who I entered into their labors.


I am adding the lyrics to the song O MY Glory because I heard golden angels sing the song. 




Charlie was a man about 69; he went to our church back in the Georgia pines

He lost his wife and his kids were gone but every Sunday night after the special song

The preacher’ d ask the people to testify Charlie’d stand up with a gleam in his eye

He never was a man of very many words, most of the time all that we heard was


O my glory, glory, glory that was all that he said that was his story

O my glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, o my!


Well he looked kinda funny with that big old grin.

I said “hey, hey momma what’s the matter with him”

She pulled me up close and then she took my hand

She said someday, baby you will understand.

Sunday after Sunday during prayer meetin’ night

Charlie’d stand up when the feelin’ was right,

He’d raise both his hands and he’d start to cry

Then he’d open up and testify…and he’d say


O my, glory, glory, glory that was all that he said that was his story

O my, glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, o my


Many years later I went back to see if that little country church was how it used to be

Momma and daddy and Charlie were gone

But when the preacher got up after the special song

Something very strange began to happen to me

I was shakin’ all over I was weak in the knees

I stood there cryin’ and I tried to explain

But Charlie’s words were all I could say and I said


O my glory glory glory that was all I could say that was my story

O my glory glory glory glory, glory,glory o my

O my glory,glory,glory that was all I could say that was my story

O my glory, glory,glory glory, glory, glory

O my glory, glory, glory that was all I could say that was my story

O my, glory, glory, glory glory, glory, glory o my

O my glory, glory, glory that was all I could say that was my story

O my glory, glory, glory glory,glory, glory o my

Glory glory glory oh my! That’s My Story
