DECLARATIONS & DECREES: IT IS TIME TO ENTER GOD’S REST!
December 14, 2017 – 1 Kings 4:24-25; Hebrews 4:1-16; Psalm 4:3-8 (NASB)
1 Kings 4:24-25: 24 For he had dominion over everything west of the River, from Tiphsah even to Gaza, over all the kings west of the River; and he had peace on all sides around about him. 25 So Judah and Israel lived in safety, every man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan even to Beersheba, all the days of Solomon.
Hebrews 4:1-16: 1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard. 3 For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, “As I swore in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest,” although His works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this passage, “They shall not enter My rest.” 6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience, 7 He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Psalm 4:3-8: 3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; the Lord hears when I call to Him. 4 Tremble, and do not sin; meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and trust in the Lord. 6 Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! 7 You have put gladness in my heart, more than when their grain and new wine abound. 8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
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 and declare it is YOUR TIME to enter into PEACE and REST on all sides: CONFLICTS MUST CEASE; LACK MUST MAKE WAY TO PROSPERITY; ILLNESS MUST GO in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah!
» We declare the PROMISE of ENTERING HIS REST remains; let us be alert that none of us might be judged to have fallen short of it; for Good News was proclaimed to us, just as it was to the World. Those who hear the Word, but do not combine it with TRUST, will not benefit from it.
» We decree it is WE WHO HAVE TRUSTED who enter the REST of the LORD. TODAY, if you hear God’s voice, don’t harden your hearts. We decree hearts will be OPEN to hear the TRUTH of the Spirit with TRUST committing their lives to Him.
» We decree and declare there remains a SABBATH KEEPING for God’s People. For the one who has ENTERED GOD’S REST has also rested from his own works, as God did from His. Therefore, let us do our best to ENTER THAT REST, so that no one will fall short because of the same kind of disobedience.
» We declare the WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword – it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and IT IS QUICK to JUDGE the INNER REFLECTIONS and attitudes of the heart!
» We declare before God, NOTHING CREATED IS HIDDEN, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must render an account. Therefore, since we have a great HIGH PRIEST who has passed through to the HIGHEST HEAVEN, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, let us HOLD FIRMLY to what we acknowledge as TRUE!
» We decree and declare you may CONFIDENTLY APPROACH the throne from which God gives grace, so that YOU MAY RECEIVE MERCY and find GRACE IN YOUR TIME OF NEED!
» We decree and declare the Lord has SET YOU APART FOR HIMSELF! He hears you when you call to Him. Offer sacrifices rightly and put your TRUST in the Lord!
» We declare the Lord God Almighty LIFTS THE LIGHT OF HIS FACE OVER US! He fills our hearts with MORE JOY than prosperity can offer. We lie down and SLEEP IN PEACE; for the Lord alone makes us live securely.
» 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!
