Sunday, March 20, 2022, the Year of Our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom


The story of the three kings of 2 Kings, chapter 3, has been quickened to me by the Holy Spirit for the past two weeks as we are watching the LORD shake by His hand of judgment, nations, rulers, the media, and the alliance of nations. 


This is the story of three kings who made a covenant of compromise to go to battle against the King of Moab.  Let us keep in focus that the King of Moab and its people worshiped the god of Chemosh to whom they offered child sacrifice.


 Today, I will also be reading Mario Murillo’s message from March 19, 2022 titled: “Satan’s bait in the Ukraine.”


When Putin bombed the maternity hospital killing pregnant mothers and babies, that is a fulfillment of Matthew 24:19-20:  Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!  Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.   


Lara Logan, a Fox Nation Host made a statement on Ed Henry’s show 3/15/22:


“There's so much more going on in Ukraine that nobody is talking about. You see such dishonesty when it comes to the history of Ukraine. You see dishonesty when it comes to the Azov Battalion, which is funded by the U.S. and NATO. I mean, you can find pictures of them online holding up the NATO flag and the swastika. And at the same time, their own emblem contains the black sun of the occult, which was a Nazi SS emblem. And it also contains the sideways, you know, lightning insignia of the SS. I mean, this is on throughout the Ukrainian military you can see that black sun of the occult on their body armor, even on the female soldiers who are paraded in front of the world as being, you know, such an example of Ukraine's independence and spirit and nobility. Even they are wearing the black sun of the occult. And, you know, we want — the White House wants you to believe, well, this doesn't matter; it's just a small number of troops. It's not true. The Azov Battalion has been murdering its way through eastern Ukraine.”


I believe we have evil rulers fighting each other; BUT GOD, is uncovering the wickedness and evil in the U.S.A, Ukraine, Russia, China, NATO and the E.U. as well as the media.


Back to our story about the kings of 2 Kings, chapter 3.  The King of Moab had been paying tribute to Ahab for years.  Since King Ahab died, King Jehoram his son decided to go to war against him.  History repeats itself.  There are no good guys in this story.  The LORD God moves through his prophet, Elisha, because of His covenant with Judah. 


Let us keep in mind that the Ukraine has been paying tribute to Biden and Company for decades. 


The king of Israel (Jehoram), king of Judah (Jehoshaphat) and the king of Edom went together with their armies through the wilderness of Edom to fight Moab.   Jehoram did evil in the sight of the LORD, but not like his father and mother; for he put away the pillar of Baal that his father had made 2 Kings 3:2), After a 7-day journey through the wilderness of Edom, the three kings had no water for their armies, nor for their animals.  The King of Israel who had not inquired of God as to whether he should go to war, now blames the LORD for his trouble.


2 Ki. 3:10:  Alas! for the LORD has called these three kings together to deliver them into the hand of Moab.


To Jehoshaphat’s credit, he asked for a prophet.


2 Ki. 3:11-12: Is there no prophet of the LORD here, that we may inquire of the LORD by him?  One of the servants of the king of Israel answered and said, “Elisha the son of Shaphat is here, who poured water on the hands of Elijah.  Jehoshaphat said, ‘The word of the LORD is with him.”  So, the king of Israel, Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.


It is well that Jehoshaphat inquired of the LORD now, but it would have been better if all three kings had prayed before they decided to go to war and found themselves in trouble.


Elisha is obviously traveling with the army.  However, his rebuke is stern.  Those leaders and or the people who push God’s purposes for nations will not only receive a stern rebuke, they will also receive judgment which did follow a few years later for Jehoram and the whole house of Ahab 


Proverbs 12:7: The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.


2 Ki. 3:13-14:  Elisha said to the king of Israel, “what have I to do with you?  Go to the prophets of your father and the prophets of your mother” (Ahab and Jezebel).  The king of Israel said to him, “No, for the LORD has called these three kings together to deliver them into the hand of Moab.”  Elisha said, “as the LORD of hosts lives, before whom I stand, surely were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, I would not look at you, nor see you.


I read into that that Jehoram was not anointed by the LORD to be king of Israel.


Elisha ordered a musician and when the musician played, the hand of the LORD came upon him.  This points to how important it is for anointed musicians to bring in the presence of the LORD through worship. 

2 Ki. 3:16-18:  Thus says the LORD:  Make this valley full of ditches.  You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle and your animals may drink.  This is a simple matter in the sight of the LORD; He will also deliver the Moabites into you hand.   


This was done for the sake of the Davidic Covenant (House of Judah)!  Elisha promised victory and deliverance.




We can all agree that what Putin is doing is inhuman and barbaric. Nevertheless, the war in the Ukraine is not our war. It is a globalist war. A war without heroes on either side. And, it is a war we must avoid. Our sons and daughters should not be sent to die in this war.

The true victims are the Ukrainian people. We will talk later about what we can do for them.

The European Union encouraged the Ukraine to take a hard line with Russia. They promised to have their back if Putin did anything. Now they have backtracked and are only granting token support.

Are they hoping, yet again, that the United States will step in and take the lead—even if it leads to World War Three?

Hearing Americans rooting for action and rallying for us to send troops to die in the Ukraine is utter madness.

Have we learned nothing from our disastrous involvement in Vietnam? Afghanistan? What about Iraq?  Even the New York Times was claiming that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. He did not. The same mechanism that duped us into the war in Iraq is doing the same thing now. The same people who profited from the war in Iraq stand to profit in this one.

Why are you not suspicious when MSNBC, CNN and all the other Leftist hollow heads are unanimous in the drum beat of war? Why are you agreeing with the same people who locked down your church, forced masks on your children, and made billions off of forced vaccinations?

Are you buying the new-found patriotism of the Left who want us to attack Russia? This from the very ones who have proven, again and again, their mortal hatred for all things American?

Do not take the bait. This is Satan’s bait. It is a distraction from other critical issues.

1. This is a distraction away from the corruption which is about to be uncovered. A wise man once said, “A lie can travel half way around the world, while the truth is still putting on its shoes.” Well brothers and sisters, the truth finally got its shoes on. How convenient that the war in the Ukraine arrived just as the world was waking up to the truth about the present administration?

The truth about Hillary, Hunter Biden, the Wuhan Lab, Fauci, Pfizer, election fraud, mass profiteering, and the backlash against their cramming CRT, transgender and other sexual perversions down our throats got too close for comfort, and the Left needed another distraction. This is a distraction! It is meant to cause us to take our foot off the gas, just as we are about to uncover mass corruption.


2. It is a distraction away from Democrats passing the most evil laws ever. While you were looking at the war in Ukraine, Colorado passed a law that allows abortion, even at full term.

Maryland goes one better. It is a monstrosity called Senate Bill 669. It reiterates current law that deprives fetuses of all rights, meaning they could be the subjects of live experimentation when that is technologically feasible. The language of this Satanic bill is chilling:

“Nothing in this section shall be construed to confer personhood or any rights on the fetus.”

Next, the bill would prevent investigations and legal penalties for abortion at any point in the pregnancy and “perinatal” deaths caused by “failure to act” — which extend from the 22nd week of gestation.

That means a baby may be neglected and allowed to die even 28 days after it has been born alive.  It states:

“This section may not be construed to authorize any form of investigation or penalty for a person:

(1) Terminating or attempting to terminate the person’s own pregnancy; or

(2) Experiencing a miscarriage, perinatal death related to a failure to act, or stillbirth.”

This means that a baby who survived an abortion can be allowed to die without care, and no investigation could be pursued nor legal penalty applied.

Imagine letting a newborn that survives an abortion go without any attention, medical or otherwise, for up to 28 days?

3. This Satan’s bait also distracts us away from the midterm elections.

To rehabilitate their heinous history, the Democrats now want to appear patriotic. They want to drum up the kind of patriotic fervor that existed during the Second World War. They are even saying Putin is worse than Hitler.

I do not care how spiritual your pastor sounds when he or she says you should ‘stay out of politics’. Staying out of the midterm elections would be the worst thing the American church will ever do. This is our chance—maybe our last chance—to make them pay for the towering list of evils and misery they have heaped on the American people.

The Ukrainian people—and not the corrupt regime—deserve all of the help we can give them. But we must not be distracted from an enemy at home that is just as lethal. The Left is equally at war with our freedoms, even if they are not yet turning their guns and tanks on American citizens.

Keep your foot on the gas. Let us first win this war against evil at home. Then we will be better equipped to deal with evil in other parts of the world” (Mario Murillo).

Phyllis Garrett, Sonya and I made a prayer journey to Washington, D.C. this past week.  We were there one full day, but our destination was the Supreme Court to tear down the altar of Baal which legalizes abortion and to overturn Roe vs. Wade.  The Prayer-Net prayer team came along-side us through telephone and we decreed and prophesied from the front portico of the Supreme Court.  That evening we went to David’s Tent which is a 24-hour house of Worship.  We were refreshed.  Then returned to the prayer house of the American Center for Law and Justice behind the Supreme court to join with Nancy Cloud in prayer.

One of the things I saw when we were praying was a strong spirit of witchcraft over the Supreme Court.  I also saw a spirit of oppression over the people different from the fear of COVID.  They seemed to be bent-over waiting for the next trouble to fall almost as if they were without hope. 

I will close with the end of the war of the three kings against Moab.

2 Kings 3:26-27:  The king of Moab saw the battle was too fierce for him…then he took his eldest son who would have reigned in his place, and offered him as a burnt offering upon the wall; and there was great indignation against Israel.  So, they departed from him and returned to their own land.


This is a picture of the battle going on today in the realm of the spirit.  The king of Moab did this to obtain the favor of Chemosh, his god, which being a devil, delighted in blood and murder, and the destruction of mankind.

The prince of Gog and the prince of Rosh also delight in blood, murder and the destruction of mankind.  Let us continue to seek the LORD for His Victory which shall be great.  Surely, we will see the dismantling of evil rulers and their kingdoms.  Out of the ashes, there will arise a glorious New Testament Church.
