DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE BODY OF CHRIST/MESSIAH IS UNITED & STANDING STRONG IN THE FACE OF OPPOSITION!
June 25, 2018 – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; 1 Corinthians 12:14-31; Hebrews 10:19-25; 1 Peter 4:8-11; Matthew 18:18-20 (NASB)
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: 9 Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. 10 For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. 11 Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.
1 Corinthians 12:14-31: 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now there are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 25 so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it. 28 And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? 31 But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.
Hebrews 10:19-25: 19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
1 Peter 4:8-11: 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.
Matthew 18:18-20: 18 Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. 19 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. 20 For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
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 the COOPERATIVE EFFORTS of the Lord’s People yield a great advantage. For each supports the other when they fall or are weak. Three standing united are as a three-stranded cord that cannot easily be broken. As we stand shoulder to shoulder, and shield to shield, we form an impenetrable barrier by the POWER of the Lord God Almighty!
» I decree and declare there is ONE BODY in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, but many parts. Unified and supporting one another there is strength. By Holy Spirit, You know your function in the Body. You encourage one another and do not covet others’ positions.
» I decree and declare that ALL PARTS of the Body are important; there are some that are not seen, but are most necessary to support the inner workings. God has put the Body together in such a way that He gives greater dignity to the parts that lack it, so that there will be no disagreements within the Body, but rather ALL THE PARTS are EQUALLY CONCERNED for all the others.
» I decree and declare you TOGETHER constitute the Body of Christ/Messiah, and individually you are parts of it. Recognize that IT IS GOD Who has placed the giftings within the Believing Community first, emissaries/apostles; second, prophets; third, teachers; then those who work miracles; then those with gifts of healing; those with ability to help; those skilled in administration; and those who speak in various tongues.
» I decree and declare you have CONFIDENCE to use the WAY into the Holiest Place opened by the Blood of Jesus/Yeshua. He instated it for you as a NEW and LIVING way through the veil by means of His flesh. You have a great High Priest, in Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, over God’s Household.
» I decree and declare we APPROACH the HOLIEST PLACE with SINCERE HEARTS, in the FULL ASSURANCE that comes from TRUSTING – with our hearts sprinkled CLEAN from a bad conscience and our bodies WASHED with pure water.
» I decree and declare we CONTINUE HOLDING FAST to the HOPE we acknowledge, without wavering; for the One who made the PROMISE is TRUSTWORTHY. And we will continue to pay attention to one another so that we can spur each other on to LOVE and GOOD DEEDS.
» I decree and declare you continue LOVING one another actively; as you have each received some spiritual gift, use it to SERVE others, like good managers of God’s many-sided GRACE! So that in EVERYTHING God is GLORIFIED through Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah!
» I decree and declare WHATEVER you PROHIBIT on Earth is prohibited in Heaven, and WHATEVER you PERMIT on Earth is permitted in Heaven. For WHEREVER TWO or THREE are gathered IN JESUS’/YESHUA’S Name, He is there.
» 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!
