DECLARATIONS & DECREES: BELIEVERS, RESPECT ONE ANOTHER – TOGETHER WE ARE ONE BODY IN CHRIST JESUS/MESSIAH YESHUA!
October 6, 2018 – 1 Peter 2:1-3, 8-17; Romans 12:4-13; Luke 6:30-38 (NASB)
1 Peter 2:1-3, 8-17: 1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, 2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, 3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.…
8 and, “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense”; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed. 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 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 12:4-13: 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.
Luke 6:30-38: 30 Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. 31 Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. 32 If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 If you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners in order to receive back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. 37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
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 that you rid yourselves of all malice, deceit, hypocrisy and envy, and of all the ways there are of speaking against people; and you DESIRE to be like NEWBORN BABIES, thirsty for the PURE MILK of the Word, so that by it, you will GROW UP into DELIVERANCE. For you have tasted that the Lord/Adonai is GOOD!
» I decree and declare those who choose to ignore the Word of God and walk contrary to it will STUMBLE, for Christ/Messiah is a Stone that will make people stumble, a Rock over which they will trip. They are stumbling at the Word, disobeying it. But YOU ARE A CHOSEN PEOPLE, the King’s Priests/Cohanim, a HOLY NATION, a People for God to Possess!
» I decree and declare you were CALLED out of darkness into His WONDERFUL LIGHT to declare His PRAISES! Once you were not His People, but now you are. Before you had not received mercy, but NOW you have received MERCY!
» I decree and declare, as ALIENS and TEMPORARY RESIDENTS, you do not submit to the desires of your old nature, which keep warring against you, but rather YOU LIVE SUCH GOOD LIVES among the pagans that, even though they now speak against you as evil-doers, they will give GLORY to GOD on the Day of His Coming!
» I decree and declare we are MANY PARTS that compose ONE BODY in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua; in UNION with Him we comprise ONE BODY, with each of us BELONGING to the others. We have GIFTS that differ and which are meant to be used according to the GRACE that has been given to us.
» I decree and declare you use your GIFTINGS to SERVE the Body according to God’s Wisdom and Word that dwell in you. You do not allow love to be a mere outward show, but you LOVE EACH OTHER DEVOTEDLY and with BROTHERLY LOVE; and set examples for each other in showing RESPECT.
» I decree and declare YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN! If someone asks you for something, give it to him; if someone takes what is yours, don’t demand it back. TREAT others as you would like them to treat you!
» I decree and declare you MOVE and LIVE in the LOVE of GOD! Love your enemies, DO GOOD, and LEND expecting nothing back! Your REWARD will be great, and you will be children of the Most High/Ha’Elyon; for He is KIND to the ungrateful and the wicked. You show COMPASSION just as your Father shows compassion.
» I decree and declare you DO NOT JUDGE or CONDEMN; FORGIVE and YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN. GIVE and you will receive GIFTS – the full measure, compacted, shaken together and OVERFLOWING, will be put right in your lap. For the measure with which you MEASURE OUT will be used to measure back to you!
» 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!
