DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE LORD REVEALS THE ENEMIES’ PLOTS & PROTECTS HIS SERVANTS!
July 27, 2018 – Isaiah 37:5-37; Daniel 2:17-23 (NASB)
Isaiah 37:5-37: 5 So the servants of King Hezekiah came to Isaiah. 6 Isaiah said to them, “Thus you shall say to your master, ‘Thus says the Lord, “Do not be afraid because of the words that you have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed Me. 7 Behold, I will put a spirit in him so that he will hear a rumor and return to his own land. And I will make him fall by the sword in his own land.”’” 8 Then Rabshakeh returned and found the king of Assyria fighting against Libnah, for he had heard that the king had left Lachish. 9 When he heard them say concerning Tirhakah king of Cush, “He has come out to fight against you,” and when he heard it he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying, 10 “Thus you shall say to Hezekiah king of Judah, ‘Do not let your God in whom you trust deceive you, saying, “Jerusalem will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.” 11 Behold, you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the lands, destroying them completely. So will you be spared? 12 Did the gods of those nations which my fathers have destroyed deliver them, even Gozan and Haran and Rezeph and the sons of Eden who were in Telassar? 13 Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad, the king of the city of Sepharvaim, and of Hena and Ivvah?’” 14 Then Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it, and he went up to the house of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord. 15 Hezekiah prayed to the Lord saying, 16 “O Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 17 Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and listen to all the words of Sennacherib, who sent them to reproach the living God. 18 Truly, O Lord, the kings of Assyria have devastated all the countries and their lands, 19 and have cast their gods into the fire, for they were not gods but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone. So they have destroyed them. 20 Now, O Lord our God, deliver us from his hand that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, Lord, are God.” 21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent word to Hezekiah, saying, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Because you have prayed to Me about Sennacherib king of Assyria, 22 this is the word that the Lord has spoken against him: “She has despised you and mocked you, the virgin daughter of Zion; she has shaken her head behind you, the daughter of Jerusalem! 23 “Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? And against whom have you raised your voice and haughtily lifted up your eyes? Against the Holy One of Israel! 24 “Through your servants you have reproached the Lord, and you have said, ‘With my many chariots I came up to the heights of the mountains, to the remotest parts of Lebanon; and I cut down its tall cedars and its choice cypresses. And I will go to its highest peak, its thickest forest. 25 ‘I dug wells and drank waters, and with the sole of my feet I dried up all the rivers of Egypt.’ 26 “Have you not heard? Long ago I did it, from ancient times I planned it. Now I have brought it to pass, that you should turn fortified cities into ruinous heaps. 27 “Therefore their inhabitants were short of strength, they were dismayed and put to shame; they were as the vegetation of the field and as the green herb, as grass on the housetops is scorched before it is grown up. 28 “But I know your sitting down and your going out and your coming in and your raging against Me. 29 “Because of your raging against Me and because your arrogance has come up to My ears, therefore I will put My hook in your nose and My bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way which you came. 30 “Then this shall be the sign for you: you will eat this year what grows of itself, in the second year what springs from the same, and in the third year sow, reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 31 The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward. 32 For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant and out of Mount Zion survivors. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”’ 33 “Therefore, thus says the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, ‘He will not come to this city or shoot an arrow there; and he will not come before it with a shield, or throw up a siege ramp against it. 34 By the way that he came, by the same he will return, and he will not come to this city,’ declares the Lord. 35 ‘For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.’” 36 Then the angel of the Lord went out and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men arose early in the morning, behold, all of these were dead. 37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and returned home and lived at Nineveh.
Daniel 2:17-23: 17 Then Daniel went to his house and informed his friends, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, about the matter, 18 so that they might request compassion from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that Daniel and his friends would not be destroyed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven; 20 Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him. 21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding. 22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. 23 “To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, for You have given me wisdom and power; even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, for You have made known to us the king’s matter.”
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 to the Leaders of this Nation and to the Servants of God throughout the World, the Lord/Adonai says, “Don’t be afraid of the words you hear from the enemy, from those who oppress you; they are insulting Me. I will put a spirit in them that will make them hear RUMORS and return to their own land; then I will cause them to die by the SWORD in their own land.”
» I decree and declare the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai is FAITHFUL! He who dwells above the cherubim; He alone is God/Elohim of all the kingdoms on Earth; He made Heaven and Earth. He HEARS and SEES the taunts and plots throughout the World. We PRAISE our God for saving us from the enemies’ power—so that all the kingdoms on Earth will KNOW that He is Lord/Adonai!
» I decree and declare we, the People of God Almighty/El Shaddai, DESPISE our enemies; we LAUGH THEM TO SCORN; we shake our heads at them. Who have the enemies taunted and insulted? Against whom have they raised their voices and haughtily lifted their eyes? THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai MADE THE LANDS in antiquity and now He is making it happen: fortified cities are being TURNED INTO HEAPS of ruins while their inhabitants are disheartened and ashamed, weak as grass, like grass on rooftops or grain scorched by the East Wind.
» I decree and declare God KNOWS when you sit, when you leave, when you enter and when you rage against Him. And because of your RAGE against him, because of your PRIDE that has reached His ears, He is putting His HOOK in your nose and His BRIDLE on your lips; and He will make you RETURN by the way on which you came!
» I decree and declare the REMNANT of God’s People who have ESCAPED will again TAKE ROOT downward and BEAR FRUIT Upward; for a REMNANT will go out from Jerusalem/Yerushalayim, the ZEAL of the Lord/Adonai will ACCOMPLISH this!
» I decree and declare concerning the enemies who taunt us, the Lord Adonai says, “They will not come to this city or even shoot an arrow there, they will not confront it with a shield or erect earthworks against it. BY THE WAY THEY CAME THEY WILL RETURN; they will not come into this Land!” The Lord/Adonai DEFENDS this Land and will save it for His own sake!
» I decree and declare God is MERCIFUL to reveal SECRETS to His Servants in the night hours. We bless the name of God/Elohim from Eternity Past to Eternity Future, for WISDOM and POWER are His alone! He brings the changes of seasons and times, He installs and deposes kings, He gives WISDOM to the wise and KNOWLEDGE to those with discernment.
» I decree and declare God Almighty/El Shaddai REVEALS DEEP and SECRET THINGS; He KNOWS what lies in the darkness; and LIGHT dwells with Him. We THANK and PRAISE You, God/Elohim for giving us WISDOM and POWER, and revealing to us what we have sought, so that we may give an answer to the king.
» 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!
