DECLARATIONS & DECREES: IN REST, YOUR WORSHIP IS SPIRITUALLY ALIGNED & RISES BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD!
August 19, 2018 – John 4:21-24; Hebrews 4:8-16; Psalm 23:1-6; 63:1-8 (NASB)
John 4:21-24: 21 Jesus *said to her, “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Hebrews 4:8-16: 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Psalm 23:1-6: 1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 63:1-8: 1 O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; my soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. 2 Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory. 3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips will praise You. 4 So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. 6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, 7 For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. 8 My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.
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 we WORSHIP what we KNOW, salvation comes from the Jews and is Christ Jesus/Yeshua Messiah! The time is HERE NOW that TRUE WORSHIPPERS worship the Father in SPIRIT and in TRUTH, for these are the kind of People the Father desires to WORSHIP Him.
» I decree and declare God is SPIRIT, and Worshippers must WORSHIP Him SPIRITUALLY and TRULY!
» I decree and declare you are ENTERING GOD’S REST, so your WORSHIP is aligning with His design. There remains a Sabbath/Shabbat-keeping for God’s People. As you do your best to ENTER THAT REST, you will not fall short because of disobedience.
» I decree and declare the Word of God is ALIVE! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword – it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to JUDGE the INNER REFLECTIONS and ATTITUDES of the Heart. Before God, NOTHING created is hidden, but all things are naked and open to the EYES of Him to whom we must render an account.
» I decree and declare we have a High Priest, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, the Son of God, who empathizes with our weaknesses. We CONFIDENTLY approach the Throne from which God gives GRACE, so that we can RECEIVE MERCY and find GRACE in our time of need.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is my SHEPHERD, I lack nothing! He has me lie down and REST in grassy pastures, He LEADS ME by quiet water, HE RESTORES MY INNER PERSON. He GUIDES ME in RIGHT PATHS for the sake of His own Name.
» I decree and declare I will not FEAR disaster, for the Lord/Adonai my God is with me, His ROD and STAFF REASSURE me. He PREPARES a TABLE for me, even as my enemies WATCH; He ANOINTS my Head with OIL from an OVERFLOWING cup.
» I decree and declare God’s GOODNESS and GRACE PURSUE me EVERY DAY of my Life, and I will LIVE in the House of the Lord/Adonai FOREVER!
» I decree and declare You, God/Elohim, are my God; I SEEK YOU EAGERLY. My HEART THIRSTS for You; I long for You in a land parched and exhausted, where no water can be found. I contemplate You as I worship, seeing Your POWER and GLORY; for Your GRACE is better than Life!
» I decree and declare I will BLESS You, Lord/Adonai, AS LONG AS I LIVE; in Your Name I WILL LIFT UP MY HANDS! I PRAISE You with JOY on my lips when I remember You as I REST and MEDITATE on You in the Night Watches.
» 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!
