DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU ARE IN CHRIST & SATURATED WITH HIS WORD – TEST ALL MESSAGES & YOU WILL NOT FALL FOR THE ENEMY’S SCHEMES!
May 4, 2018 – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24; 2 Timothy 2:14-26; Psalm 119:89-106 (NASB)
1 Thessalonians 5:16-24: 16 Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every form of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
2 Timothy 2:14-26: 14 Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, 17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.” 20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 24 The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25 with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
Psalm 119:89-106: 89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. 91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances, for all things are Your servants. 92 If Your law had not been my delight, then I would have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have revived me. 94 I am Yours, save me; for I have sought Your precepts. 95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me; I shall diligently consider Your testimonies. 96 I have seen a limit to all perfection; Your commandment is exceedingly broad. 97 O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. 98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever mine. 99 I have more insight than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the aged, because I have observed Your precepts. 101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word. 102 I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, for You Yourself have taught me. 103 How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 From Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 106 I have sworn and I will confirm it, that I will keep Your righteous ordinances.
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).
» I decree I am ALWAYS JOYFUL, praying regularly, and in EVERYTHING giving THANKS, for this is what God desires from me, as I am UNITED with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» I decree and declare I do not quench the Spirit or despise inspired messages, but I DO TEST EVERYTHING – holding onto what is good, discerning and keeping away from EVERY FORM OF EVIL.
» I decree and declare I do not engage in word battles. They accomplish nothing useful and are a catastrophe for the hearers! I DO ALL to PRESENT MYSELF to God as someone WORTHY of His APPROVAL, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because I deal straightforwardly with the WORD of TRUTH!
» I decree and declare I KEEP AWAY FROM godless babbling; those who engage in it have missed the mark, as far as the TRUTH is concerned. Nevertheless, GOD’S FIRM FOUNDATION STANDS, stamped with these words: “The Lord KNOWS His own.” I BELONG to the Lord and STAND APART from wrongdoing.
» I decree and declare I will keep my VESSEL FREE OF DEFILEMENT by dishonorable things, so I will be a vessel SET ASIDE for HONORABLE USE by the Master and ready for EVERY KIND of GOOD WORK!
» I decree and declare I have fled the passions of youth; and along with those who call on the Lord from a PURE HEART, I PURSUE righteousness, faithfulness, love and peace. I refrain from stupid and ignorant controversies which lead to fights, as a slave of the Lord shouldn’t fight.
» I decree and declare LORD, Your Word CONTINUES FOREVER firmly fixed in Heaven; Your FAITHFULNESS through all generations; You ESTABLISHED the Earth, and it stands. Yes, it stands today, in keeping with Your rulings; for ALL THINGS ARE YOUR SERVANTS!
» I declare by Your Ordinances and Your Word, Lord, I HAVE SURVIVED; I did not perish in my distress. I WILL NEVER FORGET Your Precepts, for with them YOU have made me ALIVE! Lord, I am Yours; I trust in your SALVATION because I SEEK YOUR PRECEPTS.
» I decree and declare that I SEE the limits of all perfection, but the COMMANDMENTS of the Lord have NO BOUNDS. I LOVE the Word of the Lord, I MEDITATE on it all day long. The Lord raises me ABOVE MY FOES; He has made me wiser than those who seek to harm me.
» I decree and declare I will KEEP the Lord’s precepts and OBSERVE His Word; I keep my feet from every evil way. The Word of the Lord is a LAMP for my feet and a LIGHT on my PATH. I will OBSERVE the RIGHTEOUS RULINGS of the Lord my God.
» I 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!
