DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU ARE MATURE: WALKING IN WISDOM, CAUTION & TRUTH!
August 18, 2018 – Proverbs 8:1-14; 14:16-22; Daniel 1:8-17; 1 Peter 2:11-17; Romans 3:11-14 (NASB)
Proverbs 8:1-14: 1 Does not wisdom call, and understanding lift up her voice? 2 On top of the heights beside the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; 3 Beside the gates, at the opening to the city, at the entrance of the doors, she cries out: 4 “To you, O men, I call, and my voice is to the sons of men. 5 “O naive ones, understand prudence; and, O fools, understand wisdom. 6 “Listen, for I will speak noble things; and the opening of my lips will reveal right things. 7 “For my mouth will utter truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 8 “All the utterances of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing crooked or perverted in them. 9 “They are all straightforward to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge. 10 “Take my instruction and not silver, and knowledge rather than choicest gold. 11 “For wisdom is better than jewels; and all desirable things cannot compare with her. 12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion. 13 “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate. 14 “Counsel is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine.
Proverbs 14:16-22: 16 A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is arrogant and careless. 17 A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, and a man of evil devices is hated. 18 The naive inherit foolishness, but the sensible are crowned with knowledge. 19 The evil will bow down before the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous. 20 The poor is hated even by his neighbor, but those who love the rich are many. 21 He who despises his neighbor sins, but happy is he who is gracious to the poor. 22 Will they not go astray who devise evil? But kindness and truth will be to those who devise good.
Daniel 1:8-17: 8 But Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself with the king’s choice food or with the wine which he drank; so he sought permission from the commander of the officials that he might not defile himself. 9 Now God granted Daniel favor and compassion in the sight of the commander of the officials, 10 and the commander of the officials said to Daniel, “I am afraid of my lord the king, who has appointed your food and your drink; for why should he see your faces looking more haggard than the youths who are your own age? Then you would make me forfeit my head to the king.” 11 But Daniel said to the overseer whom the commander of the officials had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, 12 “Please test your servants for ten days, and let us be given some vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then let our appearance be observed in your presence and the appearance of the youths who are eating the king’s choice food; and deal with your servants according to what you see.” 14 So he listened to them in this matter and tested them for ten days. 15 At the end of ten days their appearance seemed better and they were fatter than all the youths who had been eating the king’s choice food. 16 So the overseer continued to withhold their choice food and the wine they were to drink, and kept giving them vegetables. 17 As for these four youths, God gave them knowledge and intelligence in every branch of literature and wisdom; Daniel even understood all kinds of visions and dreams.
1 Peter 2:11-17: 11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. 12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation. 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16 Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. 17 Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.
Romans 3:11-14: 11 Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.
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 WISDOM is calling you, raising her voice to all Mankind. You who look to the Lord understand caution; you know that you don’t direct your lives. Those who think they have control need to seek COMMON SENSE.
» I decree and declare WISDOM speaks worthwhile things; when she speaks her words are RIGHT! Her mouth says what is TRUE, because her lips DETEST EVIL. All the words from her mouth are RIGHTEOUS, nothing false or crooked is in them.
» I decree and declare you RECEIVE WISDOM’S INSTRUCTION, because it is much greater than silver, and her KNOWLEDGE because it is much better than the finest gold. WISDOM is better than pearls; nothing you want can compare with her. WISDOM and CAUTION live together; those who receive her ATTAIN KNOWLEDGE and DISCRETION.
» I decree and declare the FEAR of the Lord/Adonai is hatred of evil. Wisdom hates pride and arrogance, evil ways and deceitful speech. WISDOM gives GOOD ADVICE and COMMON SENSE; Wisdom is INSIGHT – POWER is hers.
» I decree and declare you are WISE; you fear God and turn away from evil. You do not act as a fool who is reckless and overconfident; you are not quick tempered doing stupid things, and you do not do vile things so people hate you.
» I decree and declare you are CAUTIOUS and are CROWNED with KNOWLEDGE. Those who are evil and wicked bow down before you who are GOOD and RIGHTEOUS. You show COMPASSION to the humble and are HAPPY. GRACE and TRUTH are yours because you plan GOOD!
» I decree and declare you RESOLVE not to defile yourself with the things of the World; you follow the Lord’s leading to be an EXAMPLE for others and ENCOURAGE them where they are. With the Lord’s creativity and leading, you will RISE above all others in the world; God’s anointing is placed upon your head.
» I decree and declare you are ALIENS and TEMPORARY RESIDENTS in this World; you do not give in to the desires of your old nature that keep warring against you, but you LIVE SUCH GOOD LIVES among the unbelievers, the pagans, that they will see your GOOD ACTIONS and give glory to God on the Day of His Coming.
» I decree and declare you submit yourselves to every human authority, whether to emperors or governors, for it is God’s will that your doing good will SILENCE the IGNORANT TALK of foolish people. You submit as people who are free, not allowing your freedom to serve as an excuse for evil. You are RESPECTFUL to all – you LOVE the brotherhood, fearing God and honoring the emperor.
» I decree and declare you are walking in WISDOM, you are CHILDREN of the LIGHT. You put aside the deeds of darkness and ARM yourselves with the WEAPONS of LIGHT. You LIVE properly; clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah!
» 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!
