DECLARATIONS & DECREES: REST & LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF GOD’S REVIVAL!
December 6, 2017 – 1 Corinthians 9:23-27; James 4:6-10; 2 Kings 7:1-6, 9-13, 16-20; Psalm 68: 32-35 (NASB)
1 Corinthians 9:23-27: 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it. 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
James 4:6-10: 6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
2 Kings 7:1-6, 9-13, 16-20: 1 Then Elisha said, “Listen to the word of the Lord; thus says the Lord, ‘Tomorrow about this time a measure of fine flour will be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.’” 2 The royal officer on whose hand the king was leaning answered the man of God and said, “Behold, if the Lord should make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” Then he said, “Behold, you will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat of it.” 3 Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate; and they said to one another, “Why do we sit here until we die? 4 If we say, ‘We will enter the city,’ then the famine is in the city and we will die there; and if we sit here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us go over to the camp of the Arameans. If they spare us, we will live; and if they kill us, we will but die.” 5 They arose at twilight to go to the camp of the Arameans; when they came to the outskirts of the camp of the Arameans, behold, there was no one there. 6 For the Lord had caused the army of the Arameans to hear a sound of chariots and a sound of horses, even the sound of a great army, so that they said to one another, “Behold, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.”…9 Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, but we are keeping silent; if we wait until morning light, punishment will overtake us. Now therefore come, let us go and tell the king’s household.” 10 So they came and called to the gatekeepers of the city, and they told them, saying, “We came to the camp of the Arameans, and behold, there was no one there, nor the voice of man, only the horses tied and the donkeys tied, and the tents just as they were.” 11 The gatekeepers called and told it within the king’s household. 12 Then the king arose in the night and said to his servants, “I will now tell you what the Arameans have done to us. They know that we are hungry; therefore they have gone from the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, ‘When they come out of the city, we will capture them alive and get into the city.’” 13 One of his servants said, “Please, let some men take five of the horses which remain, which are left in the city. Behold, they will be in any case like all the multitude of Israel who are left in it; behold, they will be in any case like all the multitude of Israel who have already perished, so let us send and see.”…16 So the people went out and plundered the camp of the Arameans. Then a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the Lord. 17 Now the king appointed the royal officer on whose hand he leaned to have charge of the gate; but the people trampled on him at the gate, and he died just as the man of God had said, who spoke when the king came down to him. 18 It happened just as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, “Two measures of barley for a shekel and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, will be sold tomorrow about this time at the gate of Samaria.” 19 Then the royal officer answered the man of God and said, “Now behold, if the Lord should make windows in heaven, could such a thing be?” And he said, “Behold, you will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat of it.” 20 And so it happened to him, for the people trampled on him at the gate and he died.
Psalm 68:32-35: 32 Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth, Sing praises to the Lord, Selah. 33 To Him who rides upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times; behold, He speaks forth with His voice, a mighty voice. 34 Ascribe strength to God; His majesty is over Israel and His strength is in the skies. 35 O God, You are awesome from Your sanctuary. The God of Israel Himself gives strength and power to the people. Blessed be God!
I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).
» We decree the SERVANTS of God are submitting and resting in God to KNOW HIS WAY in the days to come. Each will RUN the race set before them as they REST and FOCUS on God and His PERFECT PATH for them.
» We decree and declare YOU are running the race set before you to win a CROWN that will last FOREVER! You are DISCIPLINED and have brought your body under control so that, after proclaiming the Good News to others, you will not be disqualified.
» We declare the GRACE God gives is greater! He opposes the arrogant, but to the HUMBLE He gives grace. Therefore, SUBMIT TO GOD! Come CLOSE to God, and HE will come close to you. Cleanse your hands and purify your hearts! HUMBLE YOURSELVES before the Lord, and HE WILL LIFT YOU UP!
» We declare and decree RELAX and LISTEN to the Word of the Lord coming forth on the WIND of the SPIRIT! His Word is TRUTH and there is no doubt that it will come to pass. Be sensitive to Hear His CALL.
» We declare the Lord God is using the poor and sick, the most ostracized of society, to bring forth His TRUTH! Do not judge the one delivering God’s Word. BY THE HAND OF THE ALMIGHTY the message is by HIS SPIRIT.
» We declare that those who DOUBT the Word of God will be removed from their positions of responsibility. Those who acknowledge the POWER and TRUTH of God will be raised up! HE IS MAKING HIMSELF KNOWN IN THE LAND! He is stirring REVIVAL in our midst.
» We decree and declare God, the Lord, RIDES ON THE MOST ANCIENT HEAVENS, He utters His voice, His MIGHTY VOICE! We declare ALL STRENGTH belongs to God with His majesty over Israel, His People and His strength in the skies.
» We declare God Almighty is INSPIRING from His Holy Places; He gives STRENGTH and POWER to His People! The World is spinning and His GLORY is covering the whole Earth!
» We declare a CLEANSING and UNIFYING of the people of this land as these decrees go forth.
In the name of King Jesus Christ, empowered and led of the Holy Spirit of God, we dispatch the Angelic troops, throughout this land and in the spirit realm, to deliver these decrees to all, both flesh and spirit. The enemy, the principalities and powers, have no authority to act against these decrees of our King, the Lord God Almighty; their actions will be of no effect to God’s chosen ones, but will be turned back on themselves for destruction.
The Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we praise Your Name for You are True and Faithful and Just to perform it. Amen!
