SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023, the Year of Our Lord

Pastor Carolyn Sissom


Friday, Phyllis Garrett asked me to decree Apostle Tim Sheets’ prophetic word which he gave on the Elijah List on August 17, 2023.  I purposed to share the word today with our Church family because I have been under a hopeful assumption that in September the "fierce war season" prophesied by “the prophets” would culminate in September and we should expect a glorious move of God.


Well not so, according to Brother Sheets.  He is saying that June, July and August have been preparation for what is coming in September which will probably continue through to the Spring.  Yes, we are coming into the breakthrough, but “The Breakthrough Battle begins.”


This has been a Summer to pray through.  There has been intense heat all over the nation.  The fire in Maui was apocalyptic with the Hurricane winds (tempest) actually raining down brimstone from the sky.


Psa. 11:6: Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest this shall be the portion of their cup.


Luke 17:29: But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.


Rev. 9:18: By these three was the third part of men killed, by he fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.


In no way am I judging the people of Maui or condemning anyone.  I am simply stating the present conditions.


With all the pending lawsuits against Donald J. Trump and the corruption in the By-den Mafia, we are at risk of a constitutional crisis.  Amanda Grace gave a prophecy this week which I feel applies to the By-dens.

 "They have a VERY public issue with the face, in name only, of the highest seat in your land. Subterfuge," says the Lord, "an act of subterfuge... A VERY public act to attempt removals will be executed, as father and son shall attempt to sell each other out. However, mother has already made a deal," says the Lord, "to allow them to fall," says the Lord.

"The Witch of Endor," says the Lord. Saul and the Witch of Endor... In this time you shall see the same patterns come forth, for the Kingdom has already been torn away in the spirit," says the Lord. "The KINGDOM HAS ALREADY BEEN TORN AWAY AND GIVEN TO ANOTHER

"The secrets of Iraq and Baghdad are about to surface. The bricks have fallen," says the Lord, "and they have attempted to defiantly rebuild. However," says the Lord, "the meetings that occurred between former presidents on both sides of the aisle, as well as vice presidents, shall be exposed. Each has a string that connects to the shell of a man you call president. A shell, a shell company – another shall be found connected to another high up in the White House," says the Lord. "Garlands shall be hung," says the Lord, "around the time a garland is done.” (Amanda Grace).


We could continue talking about inflation, war around the Black and Caspian Seas, nuclear threat of Iran, on threat of war with China, the war against our schools and children, etc.

I cannot say from which direction Lucifer will intensify what has been prophesied as a “Fierce War Season,” but I have a surety that he will not win the war.

That brings us to Apostle Tim Sheets’ recent prophecy.  As a teacher, I have taken the liberty to elaborate on the scripture references.  I pray Brother Tim Sheets will not take offense, but consider I am using His revelation to instruct and prepare our church body for the coming days.


Tim Sheets 8/17/23 – The Breakthrough Battle begins.



“September brings Fierce war season.   You are going to move into a fierce war season.  Don’t get shook! Pay attention.”



“Take what the Lord has said in the past.  Pray into it, steward it, then it will come into what he is saying now.”

On June 4th, the Lord said, June, July and August have been a time of preparation of the great shaking and a reset to the prophetic roots of our nation, the church and individually.”


“Great Shaking for September and beyond and will probably go until spring.”


We have received a Kingdom that cannot be shaken.


Heb. 12: 25-28:


12:25: See that you refuse not him that speaks.  For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from that speaks from heaven; whose voice then shook the earth; but now he has promised saying, yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.  And this word, yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.  Wherefore, we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear; for our God is a consuming fire.”


The prophetic roots of Hebrews 12 is from the prophet Haggai.


Paul quotes Haggai who predicts a super shaking like an earthquake which not only shakes this globe, but everything out in space as well.


Hag. 2:6 For thus says the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come; and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of Hosts.


 Tim Sheets: Message Bible: Hebrews 12: 25-28: So, don’t turn a deaf ear to these gracious words.  If those who ignored earthly warnings didn’t get away with it, what will happen to us if we turn our backs on heavenly warnings? His voice that time shook the earth to its foundations, this time he’s told us that quiet plainly he will also rock the heavens.  One last shaking from top to bottom, stem to stern.  The phrase one last shaking means a thorough housecleaning getting rid of all the historical and religious junk so that the unshakeable essentials stand clear and uncluttered.


“God is not an indifferent by-stander of all that is going on in the earth.   The Godhead is not standing by in a passive mode.


The Great Shaking will bring a reset of the nation of the U.S.A. back to its covenant roots.


Paint your borders again with the forward of America like a forward in a book.  The forward of a book tells you what is coming up in the book.  God gave principles for our nation to be founded on.  Go to state borders, pour out oil, go to your capitols pour out oil and declare the forward.    We, the kingdom ecclesia, will not get shook.  We will stand.  God will reconnect to our covenant roots.”


Don’t get shook!  Don’t be shaken! If you are not focused on God’s promises, you can be shaken.


 Heavenly gates are opening up angel armies to us like he (Tim) has never seen before.  Angel activity…  angels engaging with big guns. These are the mighty ones.  The enemy is at war trying to stop the great campaign of King Jesus for a billion or so harvest.


2000 years ago, 2/3 of the Godhead came to earth.  The Godhead does not intend to lose this war.  King Jesus and Holy Spirit came to bring His kingdom on earth.


Holy Spirit spoke:   


1.       I will now lead another campaign for the King, similar to     Acts Chapter 2.  Except this time, I will be bringing far more   of the angel armies.  The angel-gate is now open.  Tim is   convinced this is now.     

2.      The greatest days of church history are not in your past. They are in your present and in your future, but not in the nominal churches.


What Jeremiah prophesied is about to happen.  Words will uproot, tear down, build up and plant.”


God told Jeremiah:


  Jeremiah 1:9: I will put my words in your mouth.  See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms; to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant. 


Bro. Tim went to Washington D.C two-weeks ago.   At the White House, he prophesied and decreed these words to the W.H.  “I invited people to pray with me concerning this prophetic word.  130,000 have decreed uproot, tear down, destroy and throw down.  Reset, build, and plant” (Sheets).


Heb. 1:13-14:  angels…  are ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation.


Vision give to Tim Sheets:   Corporate higher authority angels have been released for the ecclesia. He had the same vision four times.  Thanksgiving 2022, He was caught up in the spirit.  Two months later in December same vision.  Two times in January 2023 exact replay of vision. 


Vision: He saw four Seraphim.  These are mighty and powerful angels. Seraphim are the most powerful of all the angels.  These are the highest-ranking angels. They have a throne room ministry.  They receive assignments, direct influence or commands from the Godhead. 


Tim:  I had seen two Seraphim angels four months before the vision in our church service.


1.       Government angel – always in his church (15 years).

2.       Reformation angel - always in his church  (15 years).


Seraphim angel arrived and came between the Government angel and the Reformation angel.  The Seraphim was 12 ‘ tall, very muscular, His wings were translucent. His appearance was Gold reddish color, the color of fire.  Dark penetrating eyes.   Supreme confidence of knowing, “I carry the power and the authority of the Godhead” … no arrogance.  Radiant light, bright glistening light around him, gold belt, very tall.  


Powerful realms of God are opening that he (Tim) has not tapped into yet and the church hasn’t tapped into either.


“When Lucifer attempted the coup to take-over Heaven, 1/3 of the angels fell.  God could have taken care of that many ways.   


God turns to a Seraphim in the throne room.  His name was Michael.  “Michael take care of this!”  Michael and his angels fought Lucifer and 1/3 of the angels.  Michael threw them out.  Lucifer and his entire kingdom are no match for Michael and his angels” (Sheets).


Rev. 12:7:  There was war in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels; and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  The great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world; he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.     


“Lucifer leads by default… authority we gave away.  He leads through fear and intimidation.   This fierce warfare season is led by Lucifer.


Michael and Gabriel are archangels of the Seraphim order.  Lucifer is a fallen Seraphim” (Sheets).  


In Daniel 10, Daniel had been praying for three weeks for the promise of God to restore Israel.  A messenger angel was sent to Daniel.  A war was going on in the heavenlies. The Prince of Persia withstood the angel for 21-days.  But lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help him (Dan. 10:13).   If the messenger angel was Gabriel, then two Seraphim angels were waring together to overturn the Prince of Persia.  Verse 13 identifies the angel is associated with the kings of Persia.   Brother Sheets identified the messenger angel as Gabriel, the Scripture does not.   Seraphim beings are activated to war against evil.  Prophetic word: “Michael will release in sufficient numbers his armies to take back the earth.”  “Of course, he will.”



Vision seeing seraphim and 51 government angels:


  “I know them by what they wear.  They wear a purple sash.   They assist the decrees the saints are making.  Purple is a governing color.  They especially assist the governing decrees the saints are making of prayer, prophetic worship, and worship warfare” (Sheets).  


Isa. 51:16:  I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadows of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth and say unto Zion, you are my people.  Our words are seeds.


“Millions of prophetic Seeds planted in heaven and in earth are going to come to pass.  They are going to bear their fruit.  We have been in a season of watering, watering, watering. Millions of prophetic seeds in the heavens and earth are going to grow and bear fruit.?  We are there!


I recently preached a message on Jezreel which compliments this word.


“Jezreel is God’s promise to the world that when His Bride is cleansed and made holy, he will sow her in the earth.  That she might reproduce her Holy Seed in the earth.  God does not sow dead seed. He sows a living seed.  If God sows a living and righteous seed in the earth, he does so that he might reap a harvest after the kind of the seed that he planted.”



Hosea 2:19-23:  I will betroth you to me forever; yes, I will betroth you to me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving-kindness and in mercies.  I will even betroth you to me in faithfulness: and you shall know the LORD.  And it shall come to pass in that day, “I will hear, says the Lord, I WILL HEAR THE HEAVENS, AND THEY SHALL HEAR THE EARTH; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil, and they shall hear Jezreel.  And I will sow her for Myself in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; then I will say to them which were not my people, You are my people; and they shall say, “You are my God.  


Calamity is also ripening. It will be a painful, severe, shaking because they are not listening. We (the Kingdom saints) are not going to be shaken.  It may be difficult, but we overcome.  When this hits, go to war!   God has been preparing us!  Go to war with your word!  Be prepared to run with angels!  Don’t be silent!  If this shaking silences us, we will lose!  It is not a time to be intimidated, it is a time to shine!  We are to intimidate Hell!   You are going to have to battle, and you will have to stand strong in battle” (Sheets).  


Heb. 12:1: Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.


Brother Tim pointed out the exhortation and encouragement of the great cloud of witnesses is placed there to instruct the Ecclesia that we too, like the heroes of faith, will have to battle with Heaven’s help.


Every one of the heroes of faith went through a battle and won. Don’t get shook at the battle.  Understand that you are going to be led into battle by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit has the strategy.   Elijah fought 800 prophets of Baal.  Elijah won.   Don’t get shook at the battle!” (Sheets).  


It will be a choice of faith or unbelief.  Don’t tremble!  Don’t be afraid!  Do not fear!


Heb. 12:25-26:  Make Sure that you never refuse to listen to God when he speaks. For the God who spoke on earth from Sinai is the same God who now speaks from heaven.  Those who heard him speak the living Word on earth found nowhere to hide, so what chance is there for us to escape if we turn our back on God and refuse to hear his warnings as he speaks from heaven?  The earth was rocked at the sound of his voice from the mountain, but now he has promised. “once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!” (PTP).


Brother Tim then used the example of Joshua, and the Lord commanded him (Joshua 8:3). The Lord commanded Adam, but Adam did not obey (Gen. 3:11=17).  The Lord commanded Moses ( Ex. 31:6)..  The Lord commanded Israel multiple times and they disobeyed. (Deut 1:18);  


Joshua 1:9:   Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.


365 times in the bible it says fear not. 


In the shaking, there can still be outpourings of the Holy Spirit.


Tim was in Tucson with Dutch in 2016. He had preached a sermon on the “Standing King,” the order of the service was, decrees and prayers followed the sermon for one hour.  He had just finished preaching.  He saw lined up around the room government angels wearing purple sashes.  Holy Spirit said there are 51.  One for each capitol and one for the nation’s capital.  “We begin to decree over the states.  We decreed until all the angels left the room one by one.”  The Holy Spirit said, “they were here to get their assignment.” 


Ps. 103:20:  Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.  Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure.


When we voice God’s word, the angels perform it.  The Seraphim are over the government angels.  The government angels are also very powerful.


In the vision in D.C., he saw 4 seraphim and 51 government angels.  They were taking word-threads (decrees) of the heirs of salvation and weaving a cocoon around D.C.  The words and decrees are creating the word-threads.   A metamorphosis is going to take place.  As they are weaving, I heard Holy Spirit say one word, very loud, like thunder, “REFORMATION.” 


The shaking is about the great reformation or reset. Re-form- ation.  A reforming of this nation back to its roots.


Father thank you for your warriors.  A great refreshing will come by you Holy Spirit, a great determined heart.  These warriors don’t get shook.  They look Hell in the eye.  Supernatural strength will come.  Help is on the way.  Outpourings and refreshing will come.  We believe Lord that you are hearing and answering from heaven.  We believe billions of souls will be saved.   His word is in our heart.  We will march forward with our God.  We will cross over into new territory.  Our adversaries will scatter before us.

We will take back what the enemy has stolen.  The spoils of war will come into our hands.  We will have more than we started with. 


I would add the Lord has been speaking to me about regeneration which is even more radical than reformation.


Regeneration” a word used by Jesus in Mathew 19:28:  Jesus said to them, Verily I say unto you, that you which have followed me in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you shall also sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 


Regeneration – Strong’s G3824: “New birth, reproduction, renewal, recreation

A radical change of mind for the better.  Denotes the restoration of a thing to its pristine state.  Renovation of the earth after the deluge, Renewal of the world to take place after its destruction by fire as the Stoics taught.  The signal and glorious change of all things (in heaven and earth) for the better, that restoration of the primal and perfect condition of things which existed before the fall.  Regeneration was expected by the Jews at the advent of the Messiah.  Christians expect in connection with the visible return of Jesus from heaven.”
