DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU FREELY RECEIVED, SO FREELY GIVE!
August 23, 2018 – Matthew 10:5-15; 1 Corinthians 2:6-15; 2 Corinthians 9:1-2,6-15 (NASB)
Matthew 10:5-15: 5 These twelve Jesus sent out after instructing them: “Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter any city of the Samaritans; 6 but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give. 9 Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts, 10 or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support. 11 And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay at his house until you leave that city. 12 As you enter the house, give it your greeting. 13 If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace. 14 Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet. 15 Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.
1 Corinthians 2:6-15: 6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; 9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.
2 Corinthians 9:1-2,6-15: 1 For it is superfluous for me to write to you about this ministry to the saints; 2 for I know your readiness, of which I boast about you to the Macedonians, namely, that Achaia has been prepared since last year, and your zeal has stirred up most of them.…6 Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; 9 as it is written, “He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor, His righteousness endures forever.” 10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; 11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. 12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God. 13 Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all, 14 while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you. 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
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 GO and PROCLAIM “The KINGDOM of HEAVEN is near!” HEAL the Sick, RAISE the Dead, CLEANSE those afflicted with leprosy and EXPEL DEMONS! You have received without paying, so GIVE WITHOUT ASKING PAYMENT!
» I decree and declare as you go, DON’T TAKE MONEY with you, no gold, no silver, no coper; and for the trip don’t take a pack, an extra shirt, shoes or a walking stick – a worker should be given what he needs.
» I decree and declare you will find one who is TRUSTWORTHY as you travel; stay with him until you leave. When you enter the household bless it with your greeting of Peace. Let your blessing of Peace remain on that home if it deserves it.
» I decree and declare the WISDOM of God is beyond the World’s knowing. We are communicating a SECRET WISDOM from God that has been HIDDEN until now but which, before history began, God DECREED would BRING US GLORY.
» I decree and declare God’s Word says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined ALL THE THINGS THAT GOD HAS PREPARED for those who LOVE Him!” And it is to us that God has REVEALED these things.
» I decree and declare You have not received the spirit of the World but the Spirit of God, so that you can UNDERSTAND the things God has so FREELY GIVEN us. You speak in a manner taught by the Spirit, not the way of the World. Only the people who have the Spirit will understand these things.
» I decree and declare the Lord SEES your eagerness to GIVE. Your zeal stirs up others to give also. You give to what you decide in your heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God LOVES a cheerful giver.
» I decree and declare God is ABLE to provide you with EVERY GRACIOUS GIFT in ABUNDANCE, so that always in every way you will HAVE ALL YOU NEED yourselves and be able to PROVIDE ABUNDANTLY for every good cause!
» I decree and declare the Lord, who PROVIDES both seed for the planter and bread for food WILL SUPPLY and MULTIPLY your seed and INCREASE the harvest of your RIGHTEOUSNESS. You are being ENRICHED in every way, so that you can be GENEROUS in EVERYTHING!
» 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!
