DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I WILL SERVE THE LORD, REGARDLESS OF THE COST!
January 13, 2018 – Luke 14:25-27, 33; Esther:4:6-17; 5:1-3; Romans 12:1-3, 14-21; Acts 20:18-24 (NASB)
Luke 14:25-27, 33: 25 Now large crowds were going along with Him; and He turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. 27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.…33 So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.
Esther 4:6-17; 5:1-3: 6 So Hathach went out to Mordecai to the city square in front of the king’s gate. 7 Mordecai told him all that had happened to him, and the exact amount of money that Haman had promised to pay to the king’s treasuries for the destruction of the Jews. 8 He also gave him a copy of the text of the edict which had been issued in Susa for their destruction, that he might show Esther and inform her, and to order her to go in to the king to implore his favor and to plead with him for her people. 9 Hathach came back and related Mordecai’s words to Esther. 10 Then Esther spoke to Hathach and ordered him to reply to Mordecai: 11 “All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that for any man or woman who comes to the king to the inner court who is not summoned, he has but one law, that he be put to death, unless the king holds out to him the golden scepter so that he may live. And I have not been summoned to come to the king for these thirty days.” 12 They related Esther’s words to Mordecai. 13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.” 17 So Mordecai went away and did just as Esther had commanded him.…Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king’s palace in front of the king’s rooms, and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. 2 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king extended to Esther the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter. 3 Then the king said to her, “What is troubling you, Queen Esther? And what is your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be given to you.”
Romans 12:1-3, 14-21: 1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. 3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.…14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. 17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. 19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 “But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Acts 20:18-24: 18 And when they had come to him, he said to them, “You yourselves know, from the first day that I set foot in Asia, how I was with you the whole time, 19 serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials which came upon me through the plots of the Jews; 20 how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from house to house, 21 solemnly testifying to both Jews and Greeks of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And now, behold, bound by the Spirit, I am on my way to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there, 23 except that the Holy Spirit solemnly testifies to me in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me. 24 But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of 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 and declare the Servant of Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua is willing to LEAVE HOME and FAMILY, to give up their LIFE, for the sake of the Gospel. Nothing stands between them and the Lord. Only those who take up their cross, execution stake, and follow the Lord can be His Disciple.
» We declare the THINGS OF THIS WORLD cannot compare to LIFE and SALVATION in Christ/Messiah. Only those who renounce all they have can be a Disciple of Christ/Messiah. As you WALK this LIFE for Him alone, your RICHES will be stored up in Heaven!
» We decree and declare you are not fearful or ashamed to pray or mourn for the People of God. You are PERCEPTIVE of the laws and rulings that will endanger them, and you are PROTECTIVE of them, doing all that is within your power to RIGHT the situation and CHANGE the SPIRITUAL CLIMATE.
» We decree and declare you will not hesitate to ENGAGE others who will help to PROTECT God’s People and ACHIEVE His Goal. God will give you the STRATEGIES and words to encourage and persuade others to join in accomplishing His will.
» We declare the Lord God has RIGHTLY JOINED TOGETHER His Body so that one part will support the other. The stronger and more experienced will support the younger and the more exposed individuals. Be FIRM in encouraging all to BELIEVE IN and JOIN IN the efforts of God.
» We decree and declare ALL People are in POSITIONS as destined by the Lord God Almighty. Rich and poor, educated and not are all on this Earth by God’s design. Those who are in government or realms of authority, don’t suppose that you will escape a destructive decree. If you fail to speak up for the People of God, the Believers in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, then relief and deliverance will come from another source.
» We decree and declare JOINING with one another in PRAYER and FASTING brings unity to the Body and BREAKTHROUGH against principalities in the spiritual realm. God’s Angel Armies join those who HUMBLE themselves and decree His Word. Nothing is too difficult for the Lord God Almighty!
» We decree and declare the Lord God goes before you to PREPARE the WAY! Whether you are preparing for a battle or to present a request, KNOW that He has touched hearts and planted seeds to prepare your way!
» We decree YOU are offering yourself as a SACRIFICE, living and SET APART for God! This pleases the Father and it is the logical “temple worship” for you. Do not let yourself be conformed to the standards of this World; instead, keep letting yourself be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind, so that YOU WILL KNOW what God wants and will agree that what He wants is good, satisfying and able to SUCCEED.
» We decree and declare, in the POWER of Almighty God, you will BLESS those who persecute you – bless them, don’t curse them! Repay no one evil for evil, but try to do what everyone regards as good. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be sensitive to each other’s needs.
» We declare you will not think of yourself as better than others, but you will make HUMBLE people your friends. Don’t be conceited. To the extent that it depends on you, LIVE IN PEACE with all people. Never seek revenge, instead, leave that to God’s anger.
» We decree and declare the Servants of the Lord serve with MUCH HUMILITY and with TEARS! They are PREPARED to share the Good News and teach both in public and from house to house, declaring with utmost seriousness the same message to all: turn from sin to God; and put your trust in our Lord, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah.
» We declare we will go as the Spirit leads, not knowing what will happen to us, but knowing that it is the Lord’s will. There may be danger, even as we walk in His Way. The Spirit will prepare us for what is to come. We recognize our lives are of no importance, as long as we can finish the course set before us, the task received from the Lord Jesus/Yeshua.
» 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!
