DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GOD’S JUSTICE IS DISMANTLING INJUSTICES!
July 25, 2018 – Isaiah 5:11-21; 33:1-6, 20-24; 51:1-8 (NASB)
Isaiah 5:11-21: 11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning that they may pursue strong drink, who stay up late in the evening that wine may inflame them! 12 Their banquets are accompanied by lyre and harp, by tambourine and flute, and by wine; but they do not pay attention to the deeds of the Lord, nor do they consider the work of His hands. 13 Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge; and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude is parched with thirst. 14 Therefore Sheol has enlarged its throat and opened its mouth without measure; and Jerusalem’s splendor, her multitude, her din of revelry and the jubilant within her, descend into it. 15 So the common man will be humbled and the man of importance abased, the eyes of the proud also will be abased. 16 But the Lord of hosts will be exalted in judgment, and the holy God will show Himself holy in righteousness. 17 Then the lambs will graze as in their pasture, and strangers will eat in the waste places of the wealthy. 18 Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood, and sin as if with cart ropes; 19 Who say, “Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it; and let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come to pass, that we may know it!” 20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!
Isaiah 33:1-6, 20-24: 1 Woe to you, O destroyer, while you were not destroyed; and he who is treacherous, while others did not deal treacherously with him. As soon as you finish destroying, you will be destroyed; as soon as you cease to deal treacherously, others will deal treacherously with you. 2 O Lord, be gracious to us; we have waited for You. Be their strength every morning, our salvation also in the time of distress. 3 At the sound of the tumult peoples flee; at the lifting up of Yourself nations disperse. 4 Your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathers; as locusts rushing about men rush about on it. 5 The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness. 6 And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is his treasure.…20 Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts; Your eyes will see Jerusalem, an undisturbed habitation, a tent which will not be folded; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its cords be torn apart. 21 But there the majestic One, the Lord, will be for us a place of rivers and wide canals on which no boat with oars will go, and on which no mighty ship will pass— 22 For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; He will save us— 23 Your tackle hangs slack; it cannot hold the base of its mast firmly, nor spread out the sail. Then the prey of an abundant spoil will be divided; the lame will take the plunder. 24 And no resident will say, “I am sick”; the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity.
Isaiah 51:1-8: 1 “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness, who seek the Lord: look to the rock from which you were hewn and to the quarry from which you were dug. 2 “Look to Abraham your father and to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain; when he was but one I called him, then I blessed him and multiplied him.” 3 Indeed, the Lord will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places. And her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of a melody. 4 “Pay attention to Me, O My people, and give ear to Me, O My nation; for a law will go forth from Me, and I will set My justice for a light of the peoples. 5 “My righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the coastlands will wait for Me, and for My arm they will wait expectantly. 6 “Lift up your eyes to the sky, then look to the earth beneath; for the sky will vanish like smoke, and the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants will die in like manner; but My salvation will be forever, and My righteousness will not wane. 7 “Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, a people in whose heart is My law; do not fear the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their revilings. 8 “For the moth will eat them like a garment, and the grub will eat them like wool. But My righteousness will be forever, and My salvation to all generations.”
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 WOE to those who get up early to pursue intoxicating liquor and stay up late until wine inflames them. They seek all types of entertainment, but they PAY NO ATTENTION to how the Lord/Adonai works and NEVER LOOK at what His Hands have made.
» I decree and declare in the days of old, for lack of knowledge God sent His People into Exile; TODAY those who have tasted of God’s GOODNESS but refuse to FOLLOW Him are in a much worse condition. Many speak God’s words in emptiness, because they are not following His Spirit daily. We decree BROKENNESS and REPENTANCE to those who have turned from You Lord God/Adonai Elohim, in the Mighty Name of Jesus the Christ/Yeshua the Messiah!
» I decree and declare the masses are lowered, the nobles are humbled – proud looks will be brought down. But the Lord of Hosts/Adonai Tzva’ot is EXALTED through JUSTICE, God the Holy One is CONSECRATED through RIGHTEOUSNESS.
» I decree and declare WOE to those who begin by pulling at transgression with a thread, but end by dragging sin along as if with a cart rope. Those who are inpatient with God’s timing STEP OUT OF HIS WILL when they take things into their own hands. They do not trust. This is their sin.
» I decree and declare WOE to those who destroy and betray! When they stop destroying, they will be destroyed; when they tire of betraying, they will be betrayed. The Lord/Adonai SHOWS MERCY on His People who have WAITED for Him. He is their arm EVERY MORNING, and their SALVATION in their time of trouble.
» I decree and declare the Peoples wander off at the sound of the TUMULT; when the Lord/Adonai EXALTS Himself, the Nations are SCATTERED. His SPOIL is gathered as if stripped by shearer worms; they run over it like a swarm of locusts.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is EXALTED, for He DWELLS on HIGH; He has filled Zion/Tziyon with JUSTICE and RIGHT! He is the STABILITY of our times, a WEALTH of SALVATION, WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE, and fear of the Lord/Adonai, which is His TREASURE!
» I decree and declare the City of Zion/Tziyon and Jerusalem/Yerushalayim will be SECURE, they will not be removed. This is the POSITION of all who are in the Body of Christ/Messiah. The Lord/Adonai is there in His SPLENDOR; He will be with us, in a place of rivers and broad streams.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is our JUDGE and our LAWGIVER; He is our KING and He will SAVE us. The PLUNDER that is shared is so HUGE! No one will say they are ill, they will be full of HEALTH; the People living there have had their sins FORGIVEN and are living in RIGHTEOUSNESS!
» I decree and declare you are BLESSED; you are the Children of Abraham! Listen, you PURSUERS of JUSTICE, you who SEEK the Lord/Adonai: consider the ROCK from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were dug!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai COMFORTS Zion/Tziyon, and all His People; He comforts all her ruined places and makes her desert like Eden, her desert like the Garden of the Lord/Adonai. JOY and GLADNESS are there, THANKSGIVING and the sound of music.
» I decree and declare PAY ATTENTION, LISTEN to the Lord/Adonai your God: the Commandments/Torah goes out from the Him and He will CALM the Nations with His JUSTICE as a Light for the Peoples. His RIGHTEOUSNESS is at Hand, His SALVATION goes out, His Arms will JUDGE the Peoples.
» 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!
