DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GO & ADVANCE IN THE POWER OF THE LORD!
August 11, 2018 – Joshua 3:1-13; 6:1-5, 15-23 (NASB)
Joshua 6:1-5, 15-23: 1 Now Jericho was tightly shut because of the sons of Israel; no one went out and no one came in. 2 The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the valiant warriors. 3 You shall march around the city, all the men of war circling the city once. You shall do so for six days. 4 Also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. 5 It shall be that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people will go up every man straight ahead.”…15 Then on the seventh day they rose early at the dawning of the day and marched around the city in the same manner seven times; only on that day they marched around the city seven times. 16 At the seventh time, when the priests blew the trumpets, Joshua said to the people, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city. 17 The city shall be under the ban, it and all that is in it belongs to the Lord; only Rahab the harlot and all who are with her in the house shall live, because she hid the messengers whom we sent. 18 But as for you, only keep yourselves from the things under the ban, so that you do not covet them and take some of the things under the ban, and make the camp of Israel accursed and bring trouble on it. 19 But all the silver and gold and articles of bronze and iron are holy to the Lord; they shall go into the treasury of the Lord.” 20 So the people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets; and when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight ahead, and they took the city. 21 They utterly destroyed everything in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword. 22 Joshua said to the two men who had spied out the land, “Go into the harlot’s house and bring the woman and all she has out of there, as you have sworn to her.” 23 So the young men who were spies went in and brought out Rahab and her father and her mother and her brothers and all she had; they also brought out all her relatives and placed them outside the camp of Israel.
Joshua 3:1-13: 1 Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and he and all the sons of Israel set out from Shittim and came to the Jordan, and they lodged there before they crossed. 2 At the end of three days the officers went through the midst of the camp; 3 and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God with the Levitical priests carrying it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. 4 However, there shall be between you and it a distance of about 2,000 cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you shall go, for you have not passed this way before.” 5 Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” 6 And Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, “Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over ahead of the people.” So they took up the ark of the covenant and went ahead of the people. 7 Now the Lord said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you. 8 You shall, moreover, command the priests who are carrying the ark of the covenant, saying, ‘When you come to the edge of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.’” 9 Then Joshua said to the sons of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the Lord your God.” 10 Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will assuredly dispossess from before you the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Hivite, the Perizzite, the Girgashite, the Amorite, and the Jebusite. 11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over ahead of you into the Jordan. 12 Now then, take for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man for each tribe. 13 It shall come about when the soles of the feet of the priests who carry the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan will be cut off, and the waters which are flowing down from above will stand in one heap.”
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, though your goal, the city, is barricaded and out of reach, the Lord says it is HANDED OVER TO YOU, including its king and his warriors. Follow God’s INSTRUCTIONS PRECISELY and you will SEE Him move on your behalf.
» I decree and declare your ACTIONS come into agreement with the COMMANDS of the Lord. It is by your TRUST in His PROMISES – your STEP OF FAITH that will bring the BREAKTHROUGH!
» I decree and declare you DO NOT COVET the things of the World, the possessions of those you OVERCOME. “DESTROY COMPLETELY!” is the Lord/Adonai’s command. Only those items that God has spoke of SPECIFICALLY may be spared.
» I decree and declare DISOBEDIENCE brings a curse upon you and your People. Do not begin to think you know more than God Almighty/El Shaddai!; do not USURP His AUTHORITY by moving in your own understanding and greed.
» I decree and declare as you COMPLETE in FAITH as God instructed, SHOUTING with the RAMS’ HORNS/SHOFARS BLOWING, you will GO UP and POSSESS the city HE HAS GIVEN YOU!
» I decree and declare GOD IS FAITHFUL and JUST: those who have Protected His People will be saved. They are to be WELCOMED into the fellowship of His Children.
» I decree and declare, each day, CONSECRATE yourselves before the Lord and be HOLY, through the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, for HE IS HOLY. Do not allow anything that is not consecrated make you unclean in His Presence. Your DISCERNMENT is increasing that you will continue to walk in HOLINESS.
» I decree and declare you KNOW the PRESENCE of the Lord and dwell in His PEACE/SHALOM! You will not MOVE AHEAD of His Will. You will not leave your POSITION, until YOU SEE HOLY SPIRIT move. HIS MOVING PRESENCE is your sign to LEAVE YOUR POSITION and FOLLOW HIM.
» I decree and declare you DO NOT RUSH ahead losing sight of HOLY SPIRIT’S LEADING. You REMAIN in PACE, SYNCHRONIZED with each move He makes.
» I decree and declare it is GOD Who RAISES UP His Leaders and Prophets. No work of man or attempt at greatness will succeed. “Not by might, nor by power, but BY MY SPIRIT,” says the Lord. Remain HUMBLE and PLIABLE in the Hands of the Potter, the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai. (Zechariah 4:6)
» I decree and declare you will STEP INTO the EDGE of the Jordan, the barrier, itself. As soon as you, who CARRY the PRESENCE of the LORD, put the SOLES OF YOUR FEET in the water of the Jorden, the water will be cut off upstream and will stand piled up like an embankment.
» I decree and declare you will know that the LIVING GOD is HERE with you and that, WITHOUT FAIL, He will drive out from before you the enemy, those who possess your promised land. As the waters part, you are to ADVANCE!
» 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!
