DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU PRAY WITHOUT CEASING IN THE SPIRIT, KEEPING YOUR HEARTS & MINDS SAFE IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS/MESSIAH YESHUA!
August 17, 2018 – 1 Thessalonians 5:4-18; Romans 8:26-30; Philippians 4:4-9; Ephesians 6:10-18 (NASB)
1 Thessalonians 5:4-18: 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 6 so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. 7 For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. 8 But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. 12 But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, 13 and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another. 14 We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 16 Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:26-30: 26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
Philippians 4:4-9: 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Ephesians 6:10-18: 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
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 you BELONG to the LIGHT, so the Day of the Lord will not take you by surprise like a thief. You don’t belong to the night or to the darkness, so you will not be asleep, but you will stay ALERT and SOBER!
» I decree and declare we belong to the DAY and we remain SOBER, putting on TRUST and LOVE as a BREASTPLATE and the HOPE of being delivered as a HELMET. It is not God’s intent that we should experience His fury, but that we GAIN DELIVERANCE through our Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, who died on our behalf so that we may LIVE with Him.
» I decree and declare you RESPECT those who are working hard among you, those who are GUIDING you in the Lord and CONFRONTING you in order to help you change. You treat them with HIGHEST REGARD and LOVE because of the work they are doing. You endeavor to LIVE at PEACE among yourselves; but you are ENCOURAGED to CONFRONT those who are lazy, your aim being to help them change, to encourage the timid, to assist the weak, and to be PATIENT with everyone.
» I decree and declare you are ALWAYS JOYFUL, PRAYING REGULARLY, WITHOUT CEASING, and in EVERYTHING you GIVE THANKS, for this is what God wants from you who are UNITED with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» I decree and declare the Comforter, Holy Spirit HELPS us in our weakness, for we don’t know how to pray the way we should, but He Himself PLEADS on our behalf with groanings too deep for words. In all your work and activities, remember to pray in your spiritual tongue; as you do this, PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING is within reach.
» I decree and declare God causes EVERYTHING to work together for the GOOD of those who LOVE God and are CALLED in accordance with His Purpose, because those whom He knew in ADVANCE, He also determined in ADVANCE would be CONFORMED to the Pattern of His Son, so that He would be the FIRSTBORN among many brothers!
» I decree and declare you ALWAYS REJOICE in UNION with the Lord! You let everyone SEE how REASONABLE and GENTLE you are. The Lord is NEAR! You don’t worry, but rather you MAKE your REQUESTS KNOWN to GOD by PRAYER and PETITION, with THANKSGIVING!
» I decree and declare the PEACE/SHALOM of God, which passes all understanding, keeps your hearts and minds SAFE in UNION with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua. Focus your thoughts on what is TRUE, NOBLE, RIGHTEOUS, PURE, LOVABLE or ADMIRABLE, on some VIRTUE or on something PRAISEWORTHY.
» I decree and declare you are GROWING POWERFUL in UNION with the Lord, in union with His MIGHTY STRENGTH! You are using all the ARMOR and WEAPONRY that God provides, so that you are ABLE to STAND against the deceptive tactics of the Adversary.
» I decree and declare we are not struggling against human beings, but AGAINST the RULERS, AUTHORITIES and POWERS governing this darkness; against the SPIRITUAL FORCES of EVIL in the Heavenly Realm. You are taking up EVERY PIECE of WAR EQUIPMENT GOD PROVIDES, so that when the evil day comes, you will RESIST, and when the BATTLE IS WON, you will be standing.
» 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!
