DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU ARE PURIFIED THROUGH CHRIST’S/MESSIAH’S SACRIFICE – YOU ARE SET FREE FOREVER!
August 4, 2018 – Hebrews 9:8-28; Titus 2:11-14; James 4:6-10 (NASB)
Hebrews 9:8-28: 8 The Holy Spirit is signifying this, that the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed while the outer tabernacle is still standing, 9 which is a symbol for the present time. Accordingly both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make the worshiper perfect in conscience, 10 since they relate only to food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until a time of reformation. 11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; 12 and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. 16 For where a covenant is, there must of necessity be the death of the one who made it. 17 For a covenant is valid only when men are dead, for it is never in force while the one who made it lives. 18 Therefore even the first covenant was not inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the Law, he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which God commanded you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood. 22 And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. 23 Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, 28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
Titus 2:11-14: 11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
James 4:6-10: 6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
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 Christ/Messiah appeared as HIGH PRIEST then, He entered in through the GREATER and more PERFECT TENT (which is not man-made) to the HOLIEST PLACE once for all. And He entered not by means of the BLOOD of animals, but by the means of HIS OWN BLOOD, SETTING PEOPLE FREE FOREVER!
» I decree and declare the BLOOD of Christ/Messiah, who offered Himself to God as a SACRIFICE WITHOUT BLEMISH, PURIFIES your conscience from works that lead to death, so that you can SERVE the Living God!
» I decree and declare it is because of His death that He is MEDIATOR of a NEW COVENANT [OR WILL]. Because a death has occurred which sets people FREE from the TRANSGRESSIONS committed under the first covenant, those who have been CALLED may receive the PROMISED ETERNAL INHERITANCE.
» I decree and declare the Scriptures tell us that the Law and the Temple were a SHADOW of THINGS to COME! This is why the first covenant too was inaugurated with blood. In fact, according to the Law/Torah, almost everything is PURIFIED with blood, indeed WITHOUT the SHEDDING of BLOOD there is no forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 8:5)
» I decree and declare Christ/Messiah has ENTERED the Holiest Place which is not man-made, but into HEAVEN itself, in order to APPEAR NOW on OUR BEHALF in the very Presence of God. He has appeared ONCE in order to do away with sin through the SACRIFICE of HIMSELF.
» I decree and declare the Christ/Messiah, Who offered Himself once to BEAR THE SINS OF MANY, will appear a SECOND TIME, not to deal with sin, but to DELIVER those who are EAGERLY WAITING for him.
» I decree and declare God’s GRACE that brings DELIVERANCE has appeared to all People. It teaches us to RENOUNCE GODLESSNESS and worldly pleasures, and to live SELF-CONTROLLED, UPRIGHT and godly lives now, in this age, while continuing to EXPECT the BLESSED FULFILLMENT of our certain hope, which is the appearing of the SHEKINAH GLORY of our Great God and the appearing of our Deliverer, Jesus the Christ/Yeshua the Messiah.
» I decree and declare the Christ/Messiah GAVE HIMSELF up on our behalf in order to FREE US from all violation of the Law/Torah and PURIFY for Himself a People who would be His own, EAGER TO DO GOOD.
» I decree and declare God opposes the arrogant, but to the HUMBLE He gives GRACE. So, SUBMIT to God, take a stand against the Adversary, and he will flee from you. COME CLOSE TO GOD, and He will COME CLOSE TO YOU!
» I decree and declare you are PURIFYING your hearts, HUMBLING yourselves before the Lord and HE is LIFTING YOU UP!
» 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!
