DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU CAN DEPEND ON GOD’S PROMISES – THEY WILL BE FULFILLED FOR BOTH THE SAVED & THE LOST!
June 12, 2018 – 2 Peter 3:1-18; 2 Samuel 7:18-29 (NASB)
2 Peter 3:1-18: 1 This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles. 3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. 11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! 13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 14 Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, 15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Samuel 7:18-29: 18 Then David the king went in and sat before the Lord, and he said, “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that You have brought me this far? 19 And yet this was insignificant in Your eyes, O Lord God, for You have spoken also of the house of Your servant concerning the distant future. And this is the custom of man, O Lord God. 20 Again what more can David say to You? For You know Your servant, O Lord God! 21 For the sake of Your word, and according to Your own heart, You have done all this greatness to let Your servant know. 22 For this reason You are great, O Lord God; for there is none like You, and there is no God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23 And what one nation on the earth is like Your people Israel, whom God went to redeem for Himself as a people and to make a name for Himself, and to do a great thing for You and awesome things for Your land, before Your people whom You have redeemed for Yourself from Egypt, from nations and their gods? 24 For You have established for Yourself Your people Israel as Your own people forever, and You, O Lord, have become their God. 25 Now therefore, O Lord God, the word that You have spoken concerning Your servant and his house, confirm it forever, and do as You have spoken, 26 that Your name may be magnified forever, by saying, ‘The Lord of hosts is God over Israel’; and may the house of Your servant David be established before You. 27 For You, O Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, have made a revelation to Your servant, saying, ‘I will build you a house’; therefore, Your servant has found courage to pray this prayer to You. 28 Now, O Lord God, You are God, and Your words are truth, and You have promised this good thing to Your servant. 29 Now therefore, may it please You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue forever before You. For You, O Lord God, have spoken; and with Your blessing may the house of Your servant be blessed forever.”
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 AROUSED to WHOLESOME thinking by the REMINDERS of God’s PROMISES; you KEEP IN MIND the predictions of the Holy Prophets and the Commands given by the Lord and Deliverer through the Messengers.
» I decree and declare you KNOW that during the Last Days, scoffers will come following their own desires and asking “Where is the promised coming of Christ/Messiah?” These individuals want so much to be right about this that they overlook the fact that it was by God’s Word that the Heavens and the Earth came into EXISTENCE! It is by that same Word that the present Heavens and Earth are being KEPT FOR FIRE until the Day of Judgment, when ungodly people will be DESTROYED.
» I decree and declare with the Lord, ONE DAY is like a THOUSAND YEARS and a THOUSAND YEARS like ONE DAY! The Lord is not slow in keeping His PROMISE, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, He is PATIENT with YOU; for it is not His Purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that EVERYONE should turn from his sins.
» I decree and declare the DAY OF THE LORD will come like a thief. On that Day the Heavens will disappear with a ROAR, the Elements will melt and disintegrate, and the Earth and Everything in it will be BURNED UP.
» I decree and declare, as you wait for the Day of God, you lead HOLY and GODLY LIVES and work to hasten His coming. That Day will bring on the DESTRUCTION of the Heavens by Fire, and the Elements will melt from the heat; but WE, FOLLOWING ALONG with HIS PROMISE, wait for New Heavens and a New Earth, in which RIGHTEOUSNESS will be at home.
» I decree and declare the Lord God knows YOU INTIMATELY. He knows your HEART and your DESIRES. Nothing is to difficult. Do not be fearful of the OPPORTUNITIES and EXPOSURE the Lord is bringing to you: it is His DESIGN for His PURPOSE.
» I decree and declare You, Lord God Almighty, know me. It is for the sake of Your Word and in accordance with Your own Heart that YOU have done ALL THIS GREATNESS and REVEALED it to your Servant. You are GREAT, Lord God; for there is NO ONE LIKE YOU, and there is no God besides YOU – EVERYTHING we have heard CONFIRMS that.
» I decree and declare that the Lord God REDEEMED for Himself His People from Egypt and from other Nations and from their gods. He set up His People for Himself as His People FOREVER; and He became their God. May His Name be MAGNIFIED FOREVER, so that it will be said, the Lord of Hosts is God over Israel and the dynasty of His Servant David was set up in His Presence.
» I decree and declare Lord God, YOU ALONE ARE GOD; Your Words are TRUTH; and You have made WONDERFUL PROMISES to Your Servants. To DWELL IN YOUR PRESENCE FOREVER is my heart’s desire. I bless Your Holy Name!
» I decree and 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!
