DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU ARE CALLED & SET APART; THE ACCOMPLISHING OF GOD’S GOAL IS CLOSE AT HAND!
March 8, 2018 – Hebrews 3:1-6; 1 Peter 4:7-19; Matthew 25:1-13; Philippians 3:13-16, 20-21 (NASB)
Hebrews 3:1-6: 1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession; 2 He was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was in all His house. 3 For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. 4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5 Now Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; 6 but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.
1 Peter 4:7-19: 7 The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. 8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Be hospitable to one another without complaint. 10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner? 19 Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.
Matthew 25:1-13: 1 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
Philippians 3:13-16, 20-21: 13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you; 16 however, let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.…20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; 21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
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 YOU ARE SET APART by God; YOU SHARE in the CALL from Heaven! Think carefully about Jesus/Yeshua, whom we acknowledge PUBLICLY as God’s emissary and as HIGH PRIEST. He was FAITHFUL to God, Who appointed Him, just as Moses was faithful.
» We declare Jesus/Yeshua is FAITHFUL over God’s House, as He is the BUILDER of the House. We are that House of His, as we HOLD FIRMLY to the courage and confidence inspired by what we hope for.
» We decree and declare the ACCOMPLISHING of the GOAL of all things is close at hand. You are ALERT and SELF-CONTROLLED, praying at all times. More than anything, you continue to LOVE EACH OTHER ACTIVELY, because love covers many sins.
» We decree and declare Believers WELCOME one another into their homes; Each is serving the other, sharing the gifts, like good managers of God’s many-sided grace. In everything God is GLORIFIED through Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah – to Him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen!
» We decree and declare YOU REJOICE, to the extent that you SHARE the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings, so that you will rejoice even more as His SHEKINAH GLORY is revealed. As you are insulted because you bear the Name of Christ, YOU ARE BLESSED! For the Spirit of the SHEKINAH GLORY, that is, the Spirit of God, is RESTING ON YOU!
» We decree and declare you are NOT ASHAMED for carrying the Name of the Lord, but you BRING GLORY to God by the way you bear His Name. Know that the judgment is beginning, and it BEGINS with the HOUSEHOLD of GOD. Those who suffer, according to God’s will, entrust themselves to the FAITHFUL CREATOR by continuing to do what is good.
» We decree and declare you are SENSIBLE, ALERT and PREPARED, for the Lord’s return. You are constantly LOOKING for Him. You are active in “preparing your lamps”: studying His Word and doing the WORK AT HAND.
» We declare to the NATIONS, “The Lord is not slow, but is patient towards all, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to REPENTANCE!” We shout to the Nations, “Awake!” (2 Peter 3:9)
» We speak “AWAKE” to those who are not prepared. “PREPARE yourselves, for the Day of the Lord is at hand!” We decree “EARS BE OPEN to hear the WORD of the SPIRIT!” He is saying “COME!”
» We decree and declare we FORGET WHAT IS BEHIND and PRESS ON TOWARD WHAT LIES AHEAD. We keep PURSUING the GOAL in order to win the prize offered by God’s UPWARD CALLING in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» We decree we CONTINUE PAYING ATTENTION to this! Our conduct is appropriate to the level we have already reached. WE ARE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN, and it is from there we expect our Deliverer, the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua Messiah.
» 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!
