THE DESTROYER 2021
THE DESTROYER - 2021
“ABADDON” “The Prince of Grecia”
Preached by: Carolyn Sissom
January 1992, January 1993 and November 9, 2008; April 25, 2021
The last time I preached on the Destroyer was November 9, 2008, which was five days after the election of Obama. We watched during his two terms as he systematically began to destroy the Judeo/Christian culture in the United States with the intent to establish a new government based on Socialism and Marxism. However, for the most part, his government was clandestine successfully covering the furtive activity of the departments of the Executive Branch.
In April 2021, after four months of the Biden Administration which we can call Obama’s third term, Satan is no longer clandestine in his attempt to destroy our nation:
Under Biden’s signature the administration is overtly destroying jobs; the military; law and order; the balance of power of the three branches of government; constitution; sovereignty of our borders; election process; gun rights, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, history, redefine equality, etc. The administration is blatantly stating its intent to create a new culture by their support of Cancel Culture, B.L.M., and Critical Race Theory. They have been and continue to use academic disciplines formulated in the 1990’s in universities and academic journals. In recent years, it has become the default ideology in our public institutions.
Obama joked to Stephen Colbert about a third term: “If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a front-man or front-woman, and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, then I could sort of deliver the lines but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, then I'd be fine with that because I found the work fascinating,” Obama said.
John 10:10: The thief comes to steal, kill and to destroy. I am come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.
We can say to kill, steal and destroy is the unholy trinity.
The destroyer is the enemy that invades the land from within or without.
We continue to believe this administration will be exposed and overturned; but until then, we the church must deal with the reality that a demonic power is ruling our nation with the intent to destroy our constitution, Christian culture, and history.
My first introduction to the Destroyer as the third power of Satan was in the late 1980’s. I was praying for a young man when the Holy Spirit stopped me. He said, “The man has the spirit of destruction. If you rebuke it, the spirit will attack you. The spirit of destruction carries a battle axe in his hand and destroys everything in his path. You do not have the anointing to deal with the destroyer. But one day you will have this anointing.”
At that time, the only revelation from Scripture I received was Jeremiah 51. This entire chapter is prophetic of Babylon being destroyed by the Medes and Persians under the leadership of Cyrus. The verses were partially fulfilled by Cyrus. However, some of them are prophetic of “Mystery Babylon” and its destruction.
Jeremiah 50-51 and Isaiah 46-47 read almost word for word with Revelation 17, 18, and 19. Jeremiah’s prophecies are the prediction of the fall of the city Babylon, but also perpetual desolation of the spirit of Babylon. Mystery Babylon is the spirit of Babylon which means “confusion.” It is also rendered as “age of Bel the supreme deity of god in the Babylonian pantheon.” Babylon worshiped the god of Baal. Babylon was the most powerful financial center and powerful city of the world. The wealth of the spirit of Babylon continues to control the economies of the world/cosmos. The beast/world system carries her.
Rev 17:7 - And the angel said unto me,’ Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.’
In Revelation 18: Babylon is presented in terms of the destruction of a great mercantile city--- “portrayed as not merely the doom of an ancient city, but the sure collapse of all human organization, commercial and otherwise, that leaves God out of its reckoning” (Spenser).
Beginning with 51:20, Cyrus is metaphorically described as God’s battle axe and Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, is spoken of as a destroying mountain. God is using Cyrus to bring judgment on Nebuchadnezzar. God used Nebuchadnezzar to bring judgment on Israel.
The destroyer is the enemy that invades the land.
Thus says the Lord:
You are my battle axe and weapons of war; for with you will I break in pieces the nations and with you will I destroy kingdoms, with you I shatter horse and rider, with you I shatter chariot and driver, with you I shatter man and woman, with you I shatter old man and youth, with you I shatter young man and maiden, with you I shatter shepherd and flock, and with you I shatter farmer and oxen, with you I shatter captains and rulers.
Before your eyes I will repay Babylon and all who live in Babylonia for the wrong they have done in Zion. Declares the Lord.
I am against you, O destroying mountain, you who destroy the whole earth.” Declares the Lord.
I will stretch out my hand against you, roll you off the cliffs and make you a burned-out mountain. No rock will be taken from you for a cornerstone, nor any stone for a foundation, for you will be desolate forever. Declares the Lord.
Lift up a banner in the land; Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare the nations for battle against her…summon…send up horses…the Lord’s purposes against Babylon will stand…Babylon’s warriors have stopped fighting…This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel says: the daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is trampled: the time to harvest her will soon come.
After this revelation, I happily forgot about the study. In 1989, I once again had a dream about the destroyer. This time attacking my household. You may remember families were under attack in those years. I again resumed a word study on the destroyer. My progress was slow because of so many everyday duties. Likewise, also as it was in the days of Lot, they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded (Luke 17:28). God was trying to communicate with me to tell me some things, but I had been too busy.
The second dream came in December 1991. The message was chastisement for me to complete the assignment. In hindsight, I now understand that this study coincided with the birth of Critical race theory which in 2021 has become a vehicle of the Destroyer to destroy this nation.
I believe Obama is behind this 100% and had his plan in place to implement it under the guise of equity. “In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism.
I don’t want to stand before God and not have done what He asked me to do. I cleared my calendar in January, 1992. I completed this study in obedience to the Lord. I offer this to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
The destroyer’s name is “Abaddon”.
Thus says the Lord:
They had a King over them which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has his name Apollyon…and the sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God. It is said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind…and the number of the horsemen were 200,000,000…The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood – Idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts Rev. 9: 11-21.
Abaddon is first mentioned in the bible in Job 26:6 R.S. “Sheol (death) is naked before God and Abaddon (destruction) has no covering.” Abaddon is also named as destruction in Job 28:22 and Proverbs 15:11.
Abaddon is further identified as the prince of Grecia in Daniel 10: 20-21:
Then said he, know that I come with you and now will return to fight with the prince of Persia and when I am gone forth lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will show you that which is noted in the scripture of truth and there is none that contends with me in these things, but Michael, your prince.
It is of interest to me that I have recently identified the present cancel culture, critical race theory, black lives matter, class conflict, loss of equality, etc. with the Greek spirit of Sophism using teaching techniques to change the meaning of a lie to truth and truth to a lie, calling evil good and good evil.
“In the Hebrew prince is from the word sar which means a chief ruler.”
The prince of Grecia is the spirit confined to the abyss who will come out in the last days and cause the human antichrist to revive the old Grecian Empire so that they can oppose Jesus Christ at Armageddon. The beast out of the abyss is a satanic angel and not the human spirit of some dead man. He controls in the human antichrist or beast out of the sea, and uses him as a tool to revive the 5th or Grecian Kingdom as the 8th and last kingdom in the times of the Gentiles. This is also the 4th Beast of Daniel 7. This spirit ruled the old Grecian Empire that had fallen before John’s day. (Rev. 17:10). When his Kingdom fell, he was confined to the abyss where he remained during the 6th kingdom, the Roman Empire, which was the one in existence in John’s day.” (Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible- end of quote)
It is my belief since the Lord showed me the destroyer and his method of operations, that this spirit was released on the earth in the late 1980’s. This is my personal opinion and if you disagree with me, I will not impose that on anyone as doctrine. I also find it interesting that I taught this for the first time in January 1993, shortly after Bill Clinton became President.
“The Prince of Grecia is the satanic ruler prince of the Grecian Empire that caused Alexander the great to be so successful in 13 years as to destroy the Medo-Persian Empire completely. In Jeremiah and Daniel, the Medes are foreseen as the conquerors of Babylon.” (Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible).
Page 620 of Dake’s A.F.B. defines five departments in the underworld of departed spirits. These are Tatarus, Paradise, Hell, the Abyss and the Lake of Fire. The abyss is what we are concerned with in this study. “The abyss or bottomless pit is the abode of demons and some angelic beings…The O.T. equivalent is Abaddon and is translated to mean destruction.” The abyss is not the place of confinement for human beings who die in their one and only mortal lifetime. It is a place for confinement of demons and certain fallen angels. (Luke 8:31; Rev. 9: 1-21; 11:7, 17:8, 10:3, 7,) Human souls that are righteous go to heaven at death. The wicked go to Hell. Therefore, no human being could ever come out of the abyss as the antichrist. This is a demon spirit and the third part of the devil’s nature who will embody a human being.
The sins throughout scripture that reap destruction in addition to those listed in Rev. 9: 20-21 are murder, magic arts, pride, adultery, whoredom, murmuring, and sexual immorality; an uncontrolled tongue; and a man who robs his parents, (Job. 31:3; Prov. 28:24, 6:32; 31:3; 16:28 and 1 Co. 10:10)
So how does this affect us? Jeremiah has instructions for us as he tried to prepare Israel for her coming judgment, so are we prepared. Israel’s sin of idolatry and following their vain imaginations plus all of the above-mentioned sins brought this judgment on the nation.
Thus says the Lord:
- Break up your fallow ground! (idle, uncultivated, unproductive)
- Sow not among the thorns!
- Circumcise yourselves to the Lord! (remove all stubbornness)
- Take away the foreskin of your heart!
- Declare, publish and blow the trumpets!
- Cry, gather together and say assemble yourselves!
- Set up a standard toward Zion!
- Retire to defensed cities, stay not outside.
- Wash your heart from wickedness!
- Make mention to the nations!
All of this language expressed alarm in view of impending war---Blow the Trumpet; Cry; Gather Together; Go into the defensed cities; Stay not outside. The destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way to make the land desolate! At that time the destroyer’s tool for destruction was Nebuchadnezzar who conquered many nations, took the Jews captive and founded the Babylonian empire of Daniel 2: 37-38; 7:4.
It is my belief that the destroyer has been released from the abyss and his 2000,000,000-demon army has been released upon mankind. Judgment begins at the household of God. It is God’s way to start at the top and go down. I believe the sixth angel has sounded the sixth trumpet.
The Good News is God has made a way for us through the blood of Jesus Christ. He always makes a provision for his remnant before the need arises.
- God’s provision from destruction is first repentance and obedience.
Secondly, the blood on the doorpost protected the Israelites from the destroying angel.
2. Further God sent His Word and delivered them from destruction. (Psalm 107:20)
3. God promised protection from destruction for those who would commit their cause to him.” (Job 5: 21-22)
4. Tithing is spiritual warfare against destruction.
Malachi 3:11: And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground.”
There are many other provisions, but last and most important is chapter 10:1 in Revelation:
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven clothed with a cloud and a rainbow was upon his head and his face was as it were the sun and his feet as pillars of fire…
This angel is Jesus. As he prepares His Bride for His coming, we are going to experience an outpouring of His Glory, the power of His Might, a harvest of souls, an opening up of the revelation of His Word that has been sealed by all the prophets, Daniel, Jeremiah, Isaiah and John. Etc.
When Jesus comes with Michael contending with Him, they will fight against the Prince of Grecia, the destroyer. God will raise up His final battle axe and weapons of war against the destroyer. In Ezekiel 9: 1-6, we have God’s promise that the righteous have been marked by God’s seal for deliverance:
Then I heard him call out in a loud voice. “Bring the guards of the city here, each with a weapon in his hand.” And I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north. One man among them was clothed in linen who had a writing kit at his side. They came in and stood beside the Bronze altar (The Cross). Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament (cry) over all the detestable things that are done in it.” As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter old men, young men and maidens, women and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So, they began with the elders who were in front of the temple.
Those of us who have passed the brazen altar (The Cross), who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be marked with the sealings' of the Holy Ghost:
- The Blood of Jesus
- Baptism of Water
- Baptism of the Holy Ghost
- The Mind of Christ
- The Word of God
Wise men and women weep! Cry! Blow the trumpet! Gather together! Wash your hearts from wickedness and set up a standard!
Worldly kingdoms have always been controlled by Godly or satanic angels. It is God who rules over all the kingdoms of men, the underworld, and the heavens. God plans the rise and fall of certain kingdoms.
Satan seeks to keep the prophetic word from coming to pass.
But help is on the way – Isaiah 63: 1-6:
Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments-stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor striding forward in the greatness of His strength? ‘It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save.’ Why are your garments red like those of one treading the winepress? ‘I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath, their blood spattered my garments and I stained all my clothing. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year of my redemption has come. I looked, but there was no one to help. I was appalled that no one gave support, so my own arm worked salvation for me and in my own wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground.
The Son of Man came not to destroy men’s lives but to save them. (Luke 9:56)
