DECLARATIONS & DECREES: AS YOU WALK IN TRUTH, YOUR LIFE IS A PLEASING FRAGRANCE BEFORE THE FATHER, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!
November 14, 2018 – Ephesians 5:1-21; 1 John 1:5-10; 2 Corinthians 4:1-12 (NASB)
Ephesians 5:1-21: 1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14 For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
1 John 1:5-10: 5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
2 Corinthians 4:1-12: 1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, 2 but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; 8 we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death works in us, but life in you.
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 God is your Father, you IMITATE HIM, and live a life of LOVE, just as also Christ/Messiah loved us, indeed, on our behalf He GAVE HIMSELF up as an OFFERING to God with a PLEASING FRAGRANCE. As you imitate the Father your life is a PLEASING FRAGRANCE before Him.
» I decree and declare your speech is PURE, always GIVING THANKS! For you know that idle words, any mention of sexual immorality or any kind of impurity, or greed; these are utterly inappropriate for God’s People. Also out of place are obscenity and stupid talk or coarse language. Those who share in such things have no place in the Kingdom of our Lord.
» I decree and declare you are LIVING like Children of LIGHT for you are NOW UNITED with the Lord, and you are LIGHT. The FRUIT of the LIGHT is in every kind of GOODNESS, RIGHTNESS and TRUTH –this is what will PLEASE the LORD!
» I decree and declare you are CONTINUALLY DWELLING in the Lord’s PRESENCE, being FILLED with the Spirit – singing Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs to each other; singing to the Lord and making MUSIC in your hearts to Him; ALWAYS GIVING THANKS for everything to God the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah.
» I decree and declare GOD IS LIGHT, and there is no darkness in Him – NONE! You who claim to have fellowship with Him CANNOT WALK IN DARKNESS for He is LIGHT. If anyone continues to walk in the darkness they are lying and not living out the TRUTH. When we walk in the LIGHT, as He is in the LIGHT, then we have FELLOWSHIP with each other, and the Blood of the Son Jesus/Yeshua PURIFIES US FROM ALL SIN.
» I decree and declare as we ACKNOWLEDGE our sins, then He is TRUSTWORTHY and JUST to FORGIVE them and PURIFY us from all wrongdoing.
» I decree and declare God has shown us GREAT MERCY so that we do not lose courage as we do the WORK He has given us. By making very clear what the TRUTH is, we commend ourselves to Everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
» I decree and declare if our Good News is veiled, it is veiled only to those in the process of being lost. They do not come to trust because the god of this world has blinded their minds, in order to prevent them from seeing the LIGHT SHINING from the Good News about the GLORY of Christ/Messiah, Who is the Image of God.
» I decree and declare we PROCLAIM Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua as Lord, not ourselves; for we are slaves for you because of Jesus/Yeshua. For it is God Who has made His LIGHT SHINE in our Hearts, the LIGHT of the KNOWLEDGE of God’s GLORY shining in the face of Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» I decree and declare we have this TREASURE in clay jars, so that it will be EVIDENT that such OVERWHELMING POWER comes from God and not from ourselves. We have all kinds of troubles, but we are NOT CRUSHED, we are perplexed, yet NOT IN DESPAIR, persecuted, yet NOT ABANDONED; knocked down, yet NOT DESTROYED!
» 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!
