My darling Caroline.   I met you at Sara Ballenger's meeting in Washington, DC 6 or so years ago and you have faithfully sent me your sermon notes.  You are so very faithful to send these.  I highly admire your amazing faithfulness through the years.  You are to be commended with utmost admiration and respect.  You shall be rewarded by the Lord for all your teachings and labors.  Thank you, sweet Caroline, and may God shine His glorious light upon your love and ministry. (Phyllis Highfill)
Pastor Carolyn, I love your insight, I wish I lived near you to learn from you to take the Word apart and lay it out as you do. Its so clear and I see everything going on today as a continuance of those very scriptures. Thank you for your diligence to teach, the Lord’s anointing is powerful.  God Bless You. Stephania Grani
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "It is your time to release your ROAR! I have placed a message on the inside of you for this season, and now it must burst through the noise in the world. I have called you for such a time as this! Rise up in My glory and release what I have placed inside of you! No one can stop you except yourself!" (Barb McGraw)

THE service where the angel of Fire showed up was one of the most anointed powerful services I have been in AND I HAVE BEEN IN SOME AMAZING SERVICES!!!! All over the World. - Lori Bee
I woke up at about 10pm out time here, and recall asking the Lord to judiciously use the next couple of hours - though I didn't know what I would do, either study, pray or listen to a ministration.  But by reading this message which I hope to read again and again, I can say i got my prayers answered. This was a peculiar and timely blessing for me - as would be for many others I believe. Many thanks for these labours of Love on your part. Ma, like Rev. Kay once said, "its very rare to see vessels partake of both rains - like we say in the early apostles". The Lord counted you worthy of such and we rejoice such such tidings of good and glad things. Many thanks once again. I would use the next few hours to read other outstanding mails from you. From a dear son always...
I hope you are resting after the amazing conference...in 21yrs of salvation this conference was the most anointed, that I have ever been a part of....to experience all the gifts flowing....Saturday night when u anointed everyone, my friend and I had gold on our hands....yesterday and our service right before we prayed for people I just happened to look at my hands and there was gold again....I thank God for your life...love you....God bless you

The Hill of the Lord - Mount Sion Thank you I so am touched moved by the revelation of this word Robyn. The blessings of the Lord overcome you ! - Robyn T. Rodgers
Hello Ma, It took quite a while to carefully ruminate on this meal. I could only pray that angels would give wings to this/other ministrations. I/posterity would have no excuse but to someday dig into your archives and make reference to the fact that "I/we entered into the labours of Pst Carolyn". AND WE WOULD THEREBY COMMIT SAME UNTO FAITHFUL MEN. AMEN. Thanks for all once again, ma  
Bless your heart, Carolyn.  I love you and so appreciate your ministry.  May God open many doors of opportunity for you to minister and reach the masses with the gospel so that lost souls will be saved and brought into the kingdom of God.  Glory.  We ask this in Jesus' Name.
I'm praying for your coming conference and how I wish I was there! It will be very powerful and full of physical, mental and spiritual healings! We are eagerly waiting for your historic and long awaited visit to Uganda. It's safe and the atmosphere is ripe for your teaching! Yes, I understand when you talk of the lawlessness led by Islamic ideologists! I have witnessed it for a very long time. As you know in November I'm heading to Pakistan! I obviously need your prayers. 
We Praise and bless the name of the Lord! Nice to know ma. Grace and peace to this glad tidying This conference would entertain the trumpet of the Lord that promises to shake everything in hearts that's prone to corruption; things that must be shaken so that his righteousness/judgments alone would remain in us I bless the name of the Lord because the spiritual climate over Houston and environs is being gradually reshaped and re-cultured for men to receive the Lord into their hearts... Your delighted son always!
Beautiful!  Love how wood comes from "trees" that have been "slain" or "cut down".  And reminds me of Rev. 7 where the 5th Angel (initial, True Grace - company) ascends ("come up here") and then descends with "a little book that is open" in Rev. 10.  The genuine love of God (Lamb) is perfected, or brought to maturity, in them (severing them from "the earth"-identity); thereby giving them the authority of the Lion:-).  Carolyn, most people who have become caught up in this "grace movement" are mistaking "Uncircumcision" for True Grace.  "They" are using it to serve themselves, rather than serve one another by love; all the while claiming, "God loves ME, no matter what."  But this isn't True Grace.  It is "Uncircumcision", and part of still remaining under the influence of the spirit of Moses' Law.  Much love and blessings!  Beautiful writing and crystal-clear picture of all that is going on, today.  Sincerely, ~J&K
awesome post by pastor Carolyn! thank you so much Sara for your "blowing the shofar" on repentance at this critical time in our nation's history-- God bless you! jeff
Dear Carolyn, I so enjoyed and was blessed by your Sermon on Love. I have never read a more comprehensive (all encompassing) lesson on love! What a blessing you are to the Body of Christ as He uses you so powerfully to impart His Truths! Love and Appreciation, Aileen 
I am deeply touched and greatly blessed by this anointed writing.  You can quote me on that, if you wish, Mom. I love you!!! (With three, or four, explanation marks!) --- Shanna --- Sent from my iPhone On Jan 22, 2016, at 10:43 PM, CAROLYN <casissom@comcast.net> wrote:
Carolyn, This is so beautiful. I could feel the flow of the Holy Spirit as I read each beautiful line. This really touched my heart. You are such a blessing to me and the church. There never has been or ever will be another love as what I have for Jesus. He is my first love.
My Dearest Carolyn, You are a saint and hero all wrapped into one. I have admired your work and ministry these years since our first meeting. I, and Bev, carry a deep and abiding love for you and for all you stand for. When the time is right, I want to come for a visit. Love ya, Ras
I was sick and getting sicker.   On May 22, 2015, it culminated in a stroke.   Thankfully, my husband was home.   It could’ve been that he was at the office that day, but I wanted to go to the emergency room due to my illness. I got out of the shower, and then it hit.  I had the stroke. Being at the hospital seven days, there was plenty of opportunity to do a thoughtful contemplation.  I really wondered what was going on.   I didn’t hear the LORD.  I wondered why I didn’t hear the LORD.   Day after day in the hospital, I lay and I didn’t hear the His voice to me.   But His Holy Spirit in me, rose up and I prayed in the Spirit.   Now, that was something!   The Holy Spirit prayed through me.   It was an awesome moment, awesome in that I could barely speak.   When you have a stroke, you don’t talk.   My natural language, though I could think straight, was not coming out.   Yet, I could pray in ever-flowing tongues.     This was marvelous to me.    The speech did not affect, for the most part, my singing.   I came home and started to play the piano and sing, a little rough at first.      But I was back in the hospital within a week, not a stroke, but the other incident that led me into the stroke.   I had a condition known as ulcerative colitis.    They once again told me, because I have had this happen before ten years earlier, that I would have to have my large intestines taken out.  That didn’t happen, praise God!   My prognosis was to see if medicines could alleviate my condition.   After six days in the hospital, I was home with a ton of prescriptions to take.    I finally discovered what was the source of my gastrointestinal problems.    I had chewed gum almost every day that includes sorbitol, a known irritant to gastrointestinal problems.   Sorbitol doesn’t digest properly. My recuperative time were days of singing to the Lord and reading portions of Scripture.   Then I heard from Him.  I was about to close the piano and go.   But I heard the Holy Spirit saying to write a song.    “This is my song to you.  And you will sing it before crowds of people.  Yet I will come to you and sing it personally.  This is my song to you.”  I sat down and immediately wrote, “I have loved you.  I have loved you with an everlasting love.”   Ah, sweetness!   God was speaking His love for me!  “With an everlasting love”!   Oh, the joy of that moment! A month later of my last hospital stay, on July 5th, 2015, I was back to lead worship at church---a little hesitant, but they prayed for me and I made it through.    It amazed the people that I could lead worship at our annual conference in July.   If you were in a real lengthy discussion with me, I was a little less than coherent, but that was not the point.  I was there.  At the end of the conference, I played my song, “I Have Loved You”.  God allowed this.   He did it to prove that the devil is a liar.   I was supposed to have started full-time as music minister in the beginning of June.   I couldn’t.   But I was determined to play because that is my calling.  I started a little late … but with God on time!  God was just going to show what He could do with me.   To God be the glory!    God allowed this.   God used this to show me how much my husband loved me.    He really did! My husband struggled almost to the point of exhaustion through my weeks of illness, visiting me at the hospital, taking my medication, and with a job to boot.  I cried with tears of joy, the many times I thought of it after.    The love of Christ was extended to me.   My husband and all my children were there.  My sister and her clan came in from California.  My church was there, some ministers of the Lord, and even some people I didn’t see often were there. “God allowed this,” a prophet of God told me.   “You have not cursed God.”  And I hadn’t.   The attack of the enemy came.   But my sweet husband really, really loving me was a greater joy!   That joy far out weighed the pain it took.   If you wait towards the end, God always brings forth the JOY of victory. “I Have Loved You” I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have saved you; I have saved you With an everlasting love I have saved you; I have saved you With an everlasting love   Who can separate us from the love of Christ! Who can keep us apart? Who can separate us from the love of Christ! Yes, you have stolen my heart!   I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love   The breadth, length, height and depth beyond conception Of the love lavished on us To know the love of Christ that exceeds perception,  His love so boundless!  His love so boundless! His love so boundless!   I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love   Many waters cannot quench love,  Neither floods drown it, too. Christ gave Himself up, up for love,  A fragrant offering, a sacrifice  … for you.      
Wish we had been there! Awesome words and insight - THANK YOU for your faithfulness! Gina Tanner
Thanks Carolyn, “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away” may not always be true. You have always been my encourager Carolyn. And you already know I am president of your fan club. Hope to work out a visit with you and your most precious people in God’s good timing. May God ignite your fires to a roar today at Eastgate.
Isn’t it amazing that, once Jesus begins to teach about NT fellowship with Himself… in and through His Corporate Body (eating His flesh and drinking His blood)… that many of His disciples draw back and walk no more with Him, because they realize they can no longer approach Him with a “what’s in it for me?”- mentality?  They realize it is no longer just about “me and the Lord”; but also laying down their lives for one another.  And this occurs in John 6:66?  666 ~ the same mark received by the harlot church in the wilderness in Rev. 13, distinguishing them from the Overcomers who stand with the Lamb on Mt. Zion??  The Overcomers are dead-to-self!  The works of men glorify men, the works of God glorify the Lamb:-)  There is an element of “being under the Law of Moses” which is being missed by the current “Grace Movement”… “uncircumcision” (Gal. 5:6).  It believes that, because we are no longer under the letter of the written word of God, we are simply free to "love God, and do WHATEVER"; which translates into: “Freedom to ‘love God’ and SERVE OURSELVES.”  This is a perversion of the true Grace of Christ, just like the Book of Jude describes.  Blessings, Pastor Carolyn.  ~John & Kelly        
Thank you,  once again, for this excellent study, Carolyn.  God bless you!  Sara Ballenger
