Matthew 10:1- Rev. 16: 12-14

Sunday, January 13, 2018, the Year of Our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom


The unclean spirits upon our land, in our soul and in our mouth are not just a national behavior problem. These are weapons of evil which will be released upon the earth at the time of the Sixth Vial Angel. As we enter in and come into agreement with these unclean spirits, we partake of the power of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet; thus giving them power.  The media is the mouth of the beast (kosmos). The Churches are not standing against the evil mouth of the beast blaspheming the name of God.


Revelation 16: 12-14:  The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.  I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  They are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”


Jesus Christ gave His church power against all unclean spirits to cast them out. 


We are blessed to have a church fellowship and leadership who live separated lives, who walk “clean” before the LORD; keep the words of their mouth “clean;” keep their eyes “clean;” and their thoughts “clean.”  So why am I preaching a sermon on “Unclean Spirits?”


We have become a nation without shame or repentance for the wickedness that is done in our land. 


(Strong’s H2930 (Tame) means to become unclean, impure, (1) sexually; (2) religiously (30 ceremonially; Niphal to defile oneself, to be defiled (1) sexually, by idolatry; ceremonially; Piel to profane God’s name.)


Like Isaiah, we can say of our nation, woe is me, for I am undone!!! I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.


We, the church, have been given a Kingdom mandate to cleanse the land and people; to bring forth a Holy Nation of Sons in the image of Christ Jesus just as Israel was kept as a Holy Nation to bring forth the Christ.


Ezra 9:11:  Which you commanded by your servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which you go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.


The Israelites were given the authority to possess the Promised Land and to clean the filthiness of the people out of the lands, and their abominations.


Jesus came and did establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven.  This is not the Kingdom of Israel as some propose.  This is the Kingdom of God as it is in Heaven in every nation.  “The Kingdom of God comes not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo here! Or lo there! For, behold the kingdom of God is within you.”


Matthew 10:1:  Jesus called to Him His twelve disciples.  He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease…(Vs 7) As you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils; freely you have received, freely give... (Vs. 11) Whatsoever city or town you shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go there.  When you come into a house, salute it.  If the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.  Whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.  Verily I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment, than for that city. 


Again the church is sent to “posses the land for the Kingdom of Heaven.” "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean and I will receive you."  (2 Cor. 14-17)  The Lord is not speaking here of the ceremonially unclean according to the Temple, but those who live unclean lives.


Paul’s teaching here includes marital and personal relationships.  We never abandon our responsibility to reach the world; but we must steer clear of relationships that will divide our loyalty to Christ, compromise our testimony which is the Holiness and Righteousness of Christ; or cause us to agree with filthiness of people and their abominations.  We have been called and chosen, to have power against unclean spirits and to cast them out.  If we appease, compromise, placate, and pamper unclean spirits, then we have compromised the power of Christ Jesus and His Kingdom; thus giving power to the unclean spirits of the dragon, beast, and false prophet.


1 Co. 7:1:  Beloved ones, with promises like these, and because of our deepest respect and worship of God, we must remove everything from our lives that contaminates body and spirit, and continue to complete the development of holiness within us. 


“Commit yourselves to becoming more like God and copy him in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as his beloved sons and daughters.  Continue to walk surrendered to the extravagant love of Christ, for he surrendered his life as a sacrifice for us…have nothing to do with sexual immorality, lust, or greed---for you are his holy ones.  Let no one be able to accuse you of them in any form.” (Passion Translation) 


Do not allow yourselves to be drawn into a situation where there is an appearance of evil.  Flee from it.  You cannot pretend to be witnessing to people yet using the world’s system for your secret sins.


Guard your speech.  Forsake obscenities and worthless insults.  Christians have no place for loose talking.  Gossip is repeating anything that does not have something to do with you personally.  These are nonsensical words that bring disgrace and are unnecessary.  Instead, let worship fill your heart and spill out in your words as you remind each other of God’s goodness.  It has been made clear to you that the Kingdom of God cannot be accessed by anyone who is guilty of sexual sin, or who is impure or greedy---for greed is the essence of idolatry.”


Eph. 5:5: For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and God.


What is our inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ? Exceedingly great and precious promises in the Word of God; Eternal Life;  The Holy Spirit in the power, gifts of the Kingdom of God; an abundant entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; partakers of His divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 


“Don’t be fooled by those who speak their empty words and deceptive teachings telling you otherwise.  This is what brings God’s anger upon the rebellious.  Don’t listen to them or live like them.  The supernatural fruit of Christ’s light will be seen in you---goodness, righteousness, and truth.  Then you will learn to choose what is beautiful to our Lord.” (Passion Translation)


“Don’t even associate with the servants of darkness because they have no fruit in them; instead, reveal truth to them.  The very things they do in secret are too vile and filthy to even mention. 


Be very careful how you live not being foolish as those with no understanding, but live honorably with true wisdom, for we are living in evil times.  Take full advantage of every day as you spend your life for his purposes.  Then you will have discernment to fully understand God’s will.”


Paul to the Church at Corinth: 2 Cor. 7: 9-10: God designed us to feel remorse over sin in order to produce repentance that leads to victory. This leaves us with no regrets. But the sorrow of the world leads to death." (Passion Translation)


Repentance is to turn from sin and come back to God and to have a change of mind/direction.  Godly remorse is a “God-intended” feeling that moves the heart back to God.  Our repentance is not a work of the flesh, but the result of God’s Spirit stirring our conscience.


Through the New Covenant, the LORD has brought us to the pattern of worship in Heaven.


 Jesus Christ serves in a greater, more perfect heavenly tabernacle not made by men.  He has entered once and forever into the Holiest Sanctuary of all, not with the blood of animal sacrifices, but the sacred blood of his own sacrifice…Under the old covenant the blood of bulls, goats, and the ashes of a heifer were sprinkled on those who were unclean and defiled How much more will the sacred blood of the Messiah thoroughly cleanse our consciences!


Through the Blood of Jesus Christ, the church has been given power against all unclean spirits.  Let us arise and join with the Host of Heaven and war against these unclean spirits in our land and culture which are so common, no one even notices when someone profanes the name of God, teenagers live together in sin, our televisions and movie theaters spew profanity, etc. etc.


Revelation 16: 12-14:  The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.  I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  They are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”


We are in a serious time prophetically.  Turkey’s Erdogan is shaking his fist in the face of the four angels at the Euphrates River.  Iran and Russia now have their armies in Syria.


After the blowing of the sixth trumpet four angels bound at the river Euphrates were loosed to slay 1/3 of mankind.  The demonic calvary released numbered two hundred thousand, thousand.  The Euphrates River is drying up.


At the time John wrote this, the Romans regarded the Euphrates River as the Eastern boundary of the empire.  This 2200 mile river stretching from the Turkish mountains through Syria and Iraq to the Persian Gulf was the last natural barrier between the Middle East and the Far East.  It provided protection against the dreaded Parthian (Northern Iran) armies on their way to attack Jerusalem. 


Prophetically it is the removal of all barriers that would keep the oriental armies from joining with the armies of other nations for the Armageddon campaign.  Today we see the alignment of Iran, Russia, Turkey and Syria.   The Lord spoke to me, “The dragon and the Illuminati have conspired together to bring down Donald J. Trump.”


The kings of the East are in reference to the Parthians (Iran) and their allies.


This is the overrunning of ordered civilization by the incursion of alien armies.  The unclean spirits indicate the perversion of the minds of those in authority by demonic powers.  The demonic powers are operating on a world-wide scale to engulf humanity in ultimate catastrophe.  These demonic powers are here pictured as three evil spirits…like frogs from the mouths of the unholy trinity.


The kings of the earth and the whole world will succumb to these evil spirits.


Quacks and charlatans were represented as “frogs” and were metaphorically associated with serpents.  The Greek word for “unclean” also translated as “foul” in the KJV means impure (ceremonially morally, lewd or demonic).  The Hebrew word for “unclean” is “tame” and it means “foul in a religious sense.”  This word denotes a state of being ceremonially unfit, defiled, sexual immorality, and polluted.


Rev. 16:15:  “Behold, I come as a thief.  Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, less he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
