DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GOD’S CHILDREN DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD, BUT LOVE CHRIST/MESSIAH & OBEY HIS COMMANDS!
August 10, 2018 – 1 John 2:1-22; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (NASB)
1 John 2:1-22: 1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. 3 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: 6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 7 Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. 8 On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining. 9 The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. 10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 12 I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. 18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13: 1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
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 Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is the MEANS OF ATONEMENT/KAPPARAH for our sins – and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole World! We are not to walk in sin, but when we sin there is FORGIVENESS, for HE pleads our cause with the Father.
» I decree and declare as you OBEY His COMMANDS, you are sure that you KNOW HIM! There are those who say they love God, but are not obeying His Commands – these individuals are liars – the TRUTH is not in them. You will know them by their fruit. Those who keep doing what He says, TRULY LOVE for God has been brought to its goal in them.
» I decree and declare the Command of God is not new, but it is coming to FULFILLMENT as Christ/Messiah GAVE HIMSELF, and LIVES through His Body on Earth. As God’s Kingdom is being revealed on Earth as it is in Heaven, the FULLNESS of God’s Love is being MANIFESTED.
» I decree and declare you, who KEEP LOVING your brothers and sisters REMAIN IN THE LIGHT, and there is NOTHING in you that can make you trip. But DISCERN that those who hate their brother are in the dark – yes, they are walking in the dark, and do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded their eyes.
» I decree and declare, through Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, YOU HAVE OVERCOME the Evil One. You are STRONG – the Word of God REMAINS in you! Do not love the World or the things of the World because they are not from the Father but from the World. And the World is passing away, along with its desires.
» I decree and declare that no gift of the Spirit can function COMPLETELY and PROPERLY in those who are lacking in LOVE. The gifts become hollow and empty, they are merely blaring brass or a clanging cymbal.
» I decree and declare it is TIME to evaluate your MOTIVES – what is your driving force? Do not desire to be recognized or seen; these are the ways of the World. But rather let LOVE grow in you and let it emanate forth from you. Love is PATIENT and KIND, not jealous, not boastful, not proud, rude or selfish, NOT EASILY ANGERED, and it KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS.
» I decree and declare you do not gloat over other people’s sins, but you TAKE DELIGHT in the TRUTH. LOVE NEVER ENDS! All the gifts will end, for our knowledge is partial, and our prophecy partial, but when the PERFECT comes, the partial will pass.
» I decree and declare for now we see obscurely in a mirror, but soon it will be FACE to FACE. Now we know partly; then we will KNOW FULLY, just as God has fully known us. For now, three things last – TRUST, HOPE, LOVE, and the GREATEST of these is LOVE!
» 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!
