DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE WORD OF GOD IS THE SWORD IN YOUR HANDS!
August 27, 2018 – Hebrews 4:12-16; Joshua 5:13-15; 11:6-15; Psalm 149:1-9 (NASB)
Hebrews 4:12-16: 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.
Joshua 5:13-15: 13 Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” 14 He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the Lord.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?” 15 The captain of the Lord’s host said to Joshua, “Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.
Joshua 11:6-15: 6 Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow at this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel; you shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire.” 7 So Joshua and all the people of war with him came upon them suddenly by the waters of Merom, and attacked them. 8 The Lord delivered them into the hand of Israel, so that they defeated them, and pursued them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim and the valley of Mizpeh to the east; and they struck them until no survivor was left to them. 9 Joshua did to them as the Lord had told him; he hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots with fire. 10 Then Joshua turned back at that time, and captured Hazor and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor formerly was the head of all these kingdoms. 11 They struck every person who was in it with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them; there was no one left who breathed. And he burned Hazor with fire. 12 Joshua captured all the cities of these kings, and all their kings, and he struck them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed them; just as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded. 13 However, Israel did not burn any cities that stood on their mounds, except Hazor alone, which Joshua burned. 14 All the spoil of these cities and the cattle, the sons of Israel took as their plunder; but they struck every man with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them. They left no one who breathed. 15 Just as the Lord had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did; he left nothing undone of all that the Lord had commanded Moses.
Psalm 149:1-9: Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise in the congregation of the godly ones. 2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King. 3 Let them praise His name with dancing; let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre. 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation. 5 Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, 8 To bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, 9 To execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the Lord!
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 the WORD of GOD is ALIVE!!! It is at work and is SHARPER than any double-edged sword – it cuts through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is QUICK to JUDGE the INNER REFLECTIONS and ATTITUDES of the Heart.
» I decree and declare, 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 GREAT HIGH PRIEST, Jesus/Yeshua, the Son of God, Who has PASSED THROUGH to the Highest Heaven! We HOLD FIRMLY to what we ACKNOWLEDGE as TRUE. Our High Priest is ABLE to EMPATHIZE with our weaknesses, for He was tempted just as we are, the only difference being that HE DID NOT SIN. So, WE CONFIDENTLY APPROACH the Throne from which God gives GRACE, so that we may RECEIVE MERCY and find grace in our time of need!
» I decree and declare the Commander of the Lord’s/Adonai’s Army, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, STANDS WITH YOU with His SWORD drawn; He battles for all who are on the Lord’s side. You are not alone. You are STANDING on HOLY ground in the Lord’s Presence.
» I decree and declare you DO NOT FEAR because of the people coming against you; as you FOLLOW the Lord/Adonai, He will hand them over to you; the BATTLE is the LORD’S.
» I decree and declare you FOLLOW the Lord’s/Adonai’s INSTRUCTIONS and will not allow the enemy to remain in your midst. To the last detail, you will COMPLETE what the Lord/Adonai has directed you to do.
» I decree and declare you will RECEIVE wealth and spoil from those who the Lord removes before you. As you do HIS WILL and complete His DIRECTIVES that SUCCESS will come into you and your household.
» I decree and declare the Lord is GREATLY to be PRAISED! I lift His PRAISE in the assembly of the FAITHFUL. I REJOICE in my MAKER; the People of the Lord TAKE JOY in their King! The Lord/Adonai TAKES DELIGHT in His People, He CROWNS the HUMBLE with SALVATION!
» I decree and declare the WARRIORS of the Lord have HIGH PRAISES in their mouths, and the Word of God, sharper than any two-edged SWORD in their hands to carry out VENGEANCE on the Nations and Punishment on the Peoples, to bind their Kings with chains and put their nobles in irons, to EXECUTE the JUDGMENTS decreed for them; for this will GLORIFY ALL HIS FAITHFUL! Hallelujah!
» 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!
