DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE LORD IS CALLING YOU TO COME CLOSER, DWELL WITH HIM & HE WILL GIVE YOU REST!
April 20, 2018 – Matthew 11:25-28; Colossians 3:1-4, 12-17; Ephesians 2:4-22 (NASB)
Matthew 11:25-28: 25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. 26 Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27 All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
Colossians 3:1-4, 12-17: 1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.…12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. 14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Ephesians 2:4-22: 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. 11 Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; 18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
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 Father, Lord of Heaven and Earth, CONCEALED the things of the Spirit from the sophisticated and educated and revealed them to ORDINARY FOLKS. Yes, it pleased the Father to do this.
» We declare the Lord has handed over EVERYTHING to Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua! No one fully knows the Son except the Father, and no one fully knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son wishes to REVEAL Him!
» We decree and declare the Lord is CALLING all to COME NEAR; those who are STRUGGLING and BURDENED, come NEAR and He will GIVE YOU REST! For his YOKE is EASY and His BURDEN is LIGHT!
» We decree and declare YOU HAVE BEEN RAISED with Christ/Messiah, so SEEK the things above, where He is sitting at the right hand of God, the Father. FOCUS your minds on the things ABOVE, not on the things here on Earth. For YOU HAVE DIED, and your life is HIDDEN WITH CHRIST/MESSIAH in God!
» We decree you will LIVE as God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE, HOLY and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with feelings of COMPASSION and with kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with one another. Above all these, clothe yourselves with LOVE, which BINDS EVERYTHING TOGETHER PERFECTLY; and let the PEACE/SHALOM which comes from Christ/Messiah be your heart’s decision-maker, for this is why you were called to be part of a SINGLE BODY.
» We decree and declare God is SO RICH IN MERCY and LOVES US with such intense love that, even when we were dead, He brought us to LIFE along with Christ/Messiah – IT IS BY GRACE that you have been DELIVERED!
» We declare God RAISED US UP with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua and SEATED US WITH HIM in Heaven, in order to exhibit HOW INFINITELY RICH is His GRACE, HOW GREAT is His KINDNESS toward us who are UNITED with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» We declare YOU HAVE BEEN DELIVERED by GRACE through TRUSTING, and even this is not your accomplishment but GOD’S GIFT!
» We decree and declare, NOW, you who were once far off HAVE BEEN BROUGHT NEAR through the shedding of Christ’s/Messiah’s blood. For HE Himself is our PEACE/SHALOM – He has made us both one; He did this to create in union with Himself from the two groups a SINGLE NEW HUMANITY and thus make PEACE/SHALOM.
» We decree and declare you are no longer FOREIGNERS and STRANGERS; on the contrary, YOU ARE FELLOW CITIZENS with God’s People and Members of God’s family. You have been BUILT on the FOUNDATION of the emissaries and the prophets, with the CORNERSTONE being Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah Himself.
» 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!
