DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GOD DEMANDS TOTAL SURRENDER TO JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA MESSIAH!
September 28, 2018 – Romans 12:1-13; Jeremiah 29:10-14; Ephesians 4:17-24; Philippians 2:1-11 (NASB)
Romans 12:1-13: 1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. 4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 13 contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.
Jeremiah 29:10-14: 10 “For thus says the Lord, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
Ephesians 4:17-24: 17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. 20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
Philippians 2:1-11: 1 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, 2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
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 OFFER YOURSELVES as a living SACRIFICE, SET APART for God. This pleases Him; it is the logical ‘Temple Worship’ for you. You don’t allow yourselves to be conformed to the standards of the World, but you are continually TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of your minds. By doing so, you KNOW WHAT GOD WANTS and you agree that what He wants is GOOD, SATISFYING and ABLE to SUCCEED.
» I decree and declare you have been CALLED by the GRACE of God! Be HUMBLE and develop a SOBER estimate of yourself based on the STANDARD that God has given to you, namely TRUST. We are many parts of One Body and we don’t all have the same function, so there are many of us, and in UNION with Christ/Messiah we COMPRISE ONE BODY, with each of us belonging to the others.
» I decree and declare we each have GIFTS that differ and which are meant to be used according to the GRACE that has been given to us. If your gift is prophecy, use it to the extent of your trust; if it is serving, use it to serve; if you are a teacher, use your gift in teaching; if you are a counselor, use your gift to comfort and exhort; if you are someone who gives, do it SIMPLY and GENEROUSLY; if your are a leader, lead with DILIGENCE and ZEAL, if you are one who does acts of mercy, do them CHEERFULLY!
» I decree and declare you don’t allow LOVE to be a mere outward show. You recoil from what is evil and CLING to what is good. You LOVE each other DEVOTEDLY and with brotherly love; and set examples for each other by showing RESPECT. You REJOICE in your HOPE and are patient in your troubles, continuing STEADFASTLY in Prayer, and you share what you have with God’s People.
» I decree and declare God REMEMBERS YOU and will fulfill His GOOD PROMISE to you! He has PLANS in MIND for you: for WELL-BEING, not for bad things, so you can have HOPE and a future!
» I decree and declare, as you CALL to the Lord/Adonai, and PRAY to Him, HE WILL LISTEN to you. As you SEEK Him, you will find Him, PROVIDED YOU SEEK for HIM with YOUR WHOLE HEART, then He will let you FIND HIM. He will REVERSE the exile, the rejection you have felt in your life. He is drawing you CLOSE into His Body, His Family, FOREVER MORE.
» I decree and declare the Lord INSISTS that you do not live any longer as the pagans live, with their sterile ways of thinking. Their intelligence has been shrouded in DARKNESS, and they are ESTRANGED from the Life of God, because of the IGNORANCE in them which in turn comes from RESISTING GOD’S WILL.
» I decree and declare those of the World have LOST ALL FEELING, so they have ABANDONED themselves to sensuality, practicing any kind of impurity and always GREEDY for more. You know this is not the LESSON you learned from Christ/Messiah. We speak LIFE and REPENTANCE into the Atmosphere. May hearts be SOFTENED to receive the LOVE and FORGIVENESS of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua Messiah.
» I decree and declare you KNOW that TRUTH is in Jesus/Yeshua, and you know that your FORMER WAY of LIFE, the old nature, must be STRIPPED off, because your old nature is thoroughly ROTTED by its DECEPTIVE DESIRES. You must let your SPIRITS and MINDS KEEP BEING RENEWED, and clothe yourselves with the NEW NATURE created to be GODLY, which expresses itself in the RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS that flow from the TRUTH.
» I decree and declare you are SERVING Christ’s/Messiah’s Body with COMPASSION and SYMPATHY. You are in UNION with Christ/Messiah and give COMFORT to one another. You complete each other’s JOY by having a COMMON PURPOSE and a COMMON LOVE, by being ONE in HEART and MIND.
» I decree and declare your attitude toward one another is GOVERNED by your being in UNION with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua. Though He was in the form of God, He did not regard EQUALITY with God something to be possessed by force. So, He EMPTIED Himself, in that He took the form of a SLAVE by becoming like human beings are, and when He appeared as a Human being, He HUMBLED Himself still more by becoming OBEDIENT EVEN TO DEATH – death on a stake as a criminal!
I decree and declare God raised Christ/Messiah up to the HIGHEST PLACE and gave Him the NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME; that in HONOR of the Name given Jesus/Yeshua, EVERY KNEE WILL BOW—in Heaven, on Earth and under the Earth – and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah is Lord/Adonai – to the GLORY of God the Father.
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!
