DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOU WHO SOW IN THE FIELD OF THE SPIRIT, WILL REAP FROM THE SPIRIT EVERLASTING LIFE!
November 7, 2018 – Ephesians 6:4-10; John 4:34-38; 1 Corinthians 9:1-27 (NASB)
Ephesians 6:4-10: 4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. 5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; 6 not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. 7 With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. 9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him. 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
John 4:34-38: 34 Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. 36 Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this case the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
1 Corinthians 9:1-27: 1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? 2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 3 My defense to those who examine me is this: 4 Do we not have a right to eat and drink? 5 Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas? 6 Or do only Barnabas and I not have a right to refrain from working? 7 Who at any time serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Or who tends a flock and does not use the milk of the flock?
8 I am not speaking these things according to human judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things? 9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing.” God is not concerned about oxen, is He? 10 Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops. 11 If we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things from you? 12 If others share the right over you, do we not more? Nevertheless, we did not use this right, but we endure all things so that we will cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ. 13 Do you not know that those who perform sacred services eat the food of the temple, and those who attend regularly to the altar have their share from the altar? 14 So also the Lord directed those who proclaim the gospel to get their living from the gospel.
15 But I have used none of these things. And I am not writing these things so that it will be done so in my case; for it would be better for me to die than have any man make my boast an empty one. 16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach the gospel. 17 For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me. 18 What then is my reward? That, when I preach the gospel, I may offer the gospel without charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the gospel.
19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law though not being myself under the Law, so that I might win those who are under the Law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some. 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.
24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
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 SCRUTINIZE your own actions so that if you do find something to boast about it will be based on what you have done and not on a judgment that you are better than others, for EACH PERSON WILL CARRY HIS OWN LOAD.
» I decree and declare you who are being INSTRUCTED in the Word will SHARE ALL THE GOOD THINGS you have learned with your instructor. This will encourage you both and will strengthen the bond of the Body of Christ/Messiah.
» I decree and declare you know better than to try to make God appear foolish; those who are worldly delude themselves for NO ONE MAKES A FOOL OF GOD. Each person will REAP WHAT HE SOWS. Those who keep sowing in the field of their old nature will eventually reap RUIN. But those who KEEP SOWING in the field of the Spirit will REAP from the Spirit EVERLASTING LIFE.
» I decree and declare YOU WILL NOT GROW WEARY OF DOING WHAT IS GOOD; for if you don’t give up, you will in due time REAP THE HARVEST. Therefore, as the opportunity arises, DO WHAT IS GOOD to everyone, and especially to the family of those who are trustingly faithful.
» I decree and declare you DESIRE to do what the One Who CALLED YOU wants and to COMPLETE it. You do not procrastinate but do the work He has SET BEFORE YOU. Look at the fields, they are already RIPE FOR HARVEST!
» I decree and declare the one who REAPS receives his wages and GATHERS FRUIT FOR ETERNAL LIFE, so that the REAPER and the SOWER may be GLAD together – for One sows and another reaps. You have been sent to REAP what you haven’t worked for. Others have done the hard labor, and you have benefited from their work.
» I decree and declare you are aware of those who are SHEPHERDING the flock among you. Those who shepherd and sow spiritual seed among you should reap material harvest from you also. Be gracious in LOVE and APPRECIATION for those who support your spiritual growth. For the Lord directed that those who proclaim the Good News should get their living from the Good News.
» I decree and declare that even if you don’t get your living from the Good News, since you have not made use of any of the rights stated by our Lord, yet you have your REWARD: that in PROCLAIMING the GOOD NEWS you can make it AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE, without making use of the rights to which it entitles you.
» I decree and declare we are not bound to do anyone’s bidding, yet we have made ourselves a slave to all in order to win as many people as possible to SALVATION in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua! We do it all because of the REWARDS PROMISED by the Good News, so that we may SHARE in them along with the others who come to TRUST.
» 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!
