DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE PEOPLE OF GOD ARE EVIDENT BY THEIR WALK OF FAITH IN LOVE – WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!
May 5, 2018 – James 2:20-26; Mark 10:23-31; 2 Chronicles 20:5-9; 1 John 3:1-10, 16-24 (NASB)
James 2:20-26: 20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God. 24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
Mark 10:23-31: 23 And Jesus, looking around, *said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus *answered again and *said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 They were even more astonished and said to Him, “Then who can be saved?” 27 Looking at them, Jesus *said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” 28 Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.” 29 Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, 30 but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last, first.”
2 Chronicles 20:5-9: 5 Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord before the new court, 6 and he said, “O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You. 7 Did You not, O our God, drive out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel and give it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? 8 They have lived in it and have built You a sanctuary there for Your name, saying, 9 ‘Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.’
1 John 3:1-10, 16-24: 1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. …16 We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? 18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. 19 We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him 20 [j]in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. 24 The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
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 and declare YOU ARE A FRIEND OF GOD: your FAITH is EVIDENT in your ACTIONS. Through your actions FAITH is made COMPLETE; you are declared RIGHTEOUS because of ACTIONS and not because of FAITH alone.
» I decree and declare, with God, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Those who appear to be impossible to reach with the Gospel will RELEASE THEIR WEALTH, become gracious, and will be filled with HUMILITY to enter the Kingdom of God.
» I decree and declare ALL who have left house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children or fields, for the SAKE OF THE LORD and of the GOOD NEWS, will RECEIVE a HUNDRED TIMES more, now, in the present age with persecutions – and in the coming age, ETERNAL LIFE.
» As I STAND in the court of the Lord, among the GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES, I decree and declare, Lord God, YOU ALONE ARE GOD in Heaven! You RULE ALL the KINGDOMS of the Earth. All POWER and STRENGTH are in Your Hands – NONE CAN WITHSTAND YOU!
» I decree and declare YOU, Lord God Almighty, DRIVE OUT those Nations and entities that control the Land and territory before us. The Land has been SAVED for Your CHOSEN ONES. It is being RESTORED for those who TRUST IN YOU, and CALL on Your Name, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah!
» I decree and declare WE STAND before YOU, Lord! When calamity strikes, WE CRY OUT to You and YOU HEAR us and RESCUE us. You are our HIGH TOWER and NOTHING is too hard for YOU.
» I decree and declare, SEE WHAT LOVE the Father has LAVISHED on us, His Children! The World doesn’t know us because it does not know Him. WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN NOW! Each day HE is REVEALING the PATH of our DESTINY. We KNOW that when HE appears, we will be like Him!
» I decree and declare YOU, WHO HOPE in the Lord, continue to PURIFY YOURSELF, because GOD IS PURE. For you who KEEP ON doing what is RIGHT are RIGHTEOUS, just as God is RIGHTEOUS!
» I decree and declare DISCERNMENT is INCREASING, so you will KNOW those who are the People of God and who are impostors. No one who has God as his Father keeps on sinning, because the seed planted by God REMAINS in him. Know that anyone who does not CONTINUE doing what is RIGHT is not from God.
» I decree and declare Christ Jesus/Messiah laid down HIS LIFE for us. The Servants of God also lay down their lives for the Body of Christ/Messiah. We give to those we see in need. We do not love with words only, but with ACTIONS!
» I declare God’s COMMAND that we are to TRUST in the Person and Power of His Son Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah and to KEEP LOVING ONE ANOTHER, just as He commanded us. You who OBEY His Commands REMAIN UNITED with Him and He with YOU!
» 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!
