DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU ARE ANOINTED & CHOSEN FOR THIS HOUR!
January 4, 2018 – Genesis 41:39-43; 45:1-18; 1 Samuel 2:6-10; 1 Peter 2:9-10; Isaiah 61:1-6 (NASB)
Genesis 41:39-43; 45:1-18: 39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are. 40 You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you.” 41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” 42 Then Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put the gold necklace around his neck. 43 He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, “Bow the knee!” And he set him over all the land of Egypt.…1 Then Joseph could not control himself before all those who stood by him, and he cried, “Have everyone go out from me.” So there was no man with him when Joseph made himself known to his brothers. 2 He wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard it, and the household of Pharaoh heard of it. 3 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Is my father still alive?” But his brothers could not answer him, for they were dismayed at his presence. 4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come closer to me.” And they came closer. And he said, “I am your brother Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. 5 Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. 8 Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt. 9 Hurry and go up to my father, and say to him, ‘Thus says your son Joseph, “God has made me lord of all Egypt; come down to me, do not delay. 10 You shall live in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near me, you and your children and your children’s children and your flocks and your herds and all that you have. 11 There I will also provide for you, for there are still five years of famine to come, and you and your household and all that you have would be impoverished.”’ 12 Behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin see, that it is my mouth which is speaking to you. 13 Now you must tell my father of all my splendor in Egypt, and all that you have seen; and you must hurry and bring my father down here.” 14 Then he fell on his brother Benjamin’s neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. 15 He kissed all his brothers and wept on them, and afterward his brothers talked with him. 16 Now when the news was heard in Pharaoh’s house that Joseph’s brothers had come, it pleased Pharaoh and his servants. 17 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Say to your brothers, ‘Do this: load your beasts and go to the land of Canaan, 18 and take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the best of the land of Egypt and you will eat the fat of the land.’
1 Samuel 2:6-10: 6 “The Lord kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. 7 “The Lord makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts. 8 “He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with nobles, and inherit a seat of honor; for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He set the world on them. 9 “He keeps the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; for not by might shall a man prevail. 10 “Those who contend with the Lord will be shattered; against them He will thunder in the heavens, the Lord will judge the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king, and will exalt the horn of His anointed.”
1 Peter 2:9-10: 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Isaiah 61:1-6: 1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; 2 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, 3 To grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. 4 Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, they will raise up the former devastations; and they will repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. 5 Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks, and foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers. 6 But you will be called the priests of the Lord; you will be spoken of as ministers of our God. You will eat the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.
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 God is POSITIONING you to INFLUENCE multitudes. The journey has been long, the circumstances difficult, but KNOW THIS IS THE LORD and HE is RAISING you up in this hour!
» We decree the WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE you impart will be EXCEED all others; DOORS WILL OPEN that have been closed, you will gain AUDIENCES that you have not considered. Know that this is the HAND OF THE LORD on your life!
» We declare you are being RAISED UP to positions where your own family will not recognize you. Maintain HUMILITY, giving all PRAISE and GLORY to the Lord Most High. There is a SHIFT required in your THINKING: it is no longer you, but CHRIST/MESSIAH who lives in you. Of yourself you are not able, but by the POWER of Holy Spirit, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
» We decree and declare God’s MERCY and COMPASSION are upon you and are FLOWING out to those who are SEARCHING! They will EMBRACE and acknowledge HIM and His working through YOU.
» We decree and declare God Almighty is RAISING UP the POOR and, lifting up the NEEDY; HE GIVES THEM A PLACE with Leaders and assigns them seats of HONOR! For the Earth’s pillars belong to the Lord; on them HE has placed the World.
» We declare the Lord God, Creator of the Universe, GUARDS the steps of His FAITHFUL, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. For it is not by strength that a person prevails – those who fight the Lord will be shattered; He will thunder against them in Heaven – the Lord JUDGES the ends of the Earth. HE STRENGTHENS His King and ENHANCES the power of His ANOINTED!!!
» We declare you are a CHOSEN PEOPLE, the King’s PRIESTS, a HOLY NATION, a People for God to possess. You declare the PRAISES of the ONE who called you out of darkness into His Wonderful Light! Once you were not a people, but NOW you are God’s People, now you have received MERCY!
» We decree and declare the Spirit of the Lord Most High is upon YOU, He has ANOINTED YOU!!! YOU will ANNOUNCE Good News to the poor, HEAL the brokenhearted, proclaim FREEDOM to the captives, let out into light those bound in the dark; and PROCLAIM THE YEAR OF THE FAVOR OF THE LORD and the day of Vengeance of our God!
» We decree and declare PROVISION for those in Zion who mourn! We give them the oil of GLADNESS instead of mourning, a cloak of PRAISE instead of a heavy spirit, so they are called OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS planted by the Lord, in which He takes PRIDE!
» We decree the People of God are REBUILDING ancient ruins, restoring sites long destroyed; they are RENEWING ruined cities, destroyed many generations ago.
» We declare strangers will stand and feed your flocks, foreigners plow your land and tend your vines; but you are called the PRIESTS OF THE LORD, spoken of as ministers to our God. YOU WILL FEED ON THE WEALTH OF NATIONS, and revel in their riches.
» 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!
