DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE LORD IS CLEANSING THE LAND & RESTORING HIS GLORY FOR THE REMNANT OF HIS PEOPLE!
December 31, 2018 – Romans 11:1-12; Haggai 2:1-23; Zephaniah 1:2-9 (NASB)
Romans 11:1-12: 1 I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 3 “Lord, they have killed Your prophets, they have torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life.” 4 But what is the divine response to him? “I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” 5 In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God’s gracious choice. 6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
7 What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened; 8 just as it is written, “God gave them a spirit of stupor, Eyes to see not and ears to hear not, Down to this very day.”
9 And David says, “Let their table become a snare and a trap, And a stumbling block and a retribution to them. 10 “Let their eyes be darkened to see not, and bend their backs forever.”
11 I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous. 12 Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be!
Haggai 2:1-23: 1 On the twenty-first of the seventh month, the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet saying, 2 “Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people saying, 3 ‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? Does it not seem to you like nothing in comparison? 4 But now take courage, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord, ‘take courage also, Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and all you people of the land take courage,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ declares the Lord of hosts. 5 ‘As for the promise which I made you when you came out of Egypt, My Spirit is abiding in your midst; do not fear!’ 6 For thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. 7 I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the Lord of hosts. 9 ‘The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place I will give peace,’ declares the Lord of hosts.”
10 On the twenty-fourth of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Haggai the prophet, saying, 11 “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Ask now the priests for a ruling: 12 If a man carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and touches bread with this fold, or cooked food, wine, oil, or any other food, will it become holy?’” And the priests answered, “No.” 13 Then Haggai said, “If one who is unclean from a corpse touches any of these, will the latter become unclean?” And the priests answered, “It will become unclean.” 14 Then Haggai said, “‘So is this people. And so is this nation before Me,’ declares the Lord, ‘and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean. 15 But now, do consider from this day onward: before one stone was placed on another in the temple of the Lord, 16 from that time when one came to a grain heap of twenty measures, there would be only ten; and when one came to the wine vat to draw fifty measures, there would be only twenty. 17 I smote you and every work of your hands with blasting wind, mildew and hail; yet you did not come back to Me,’ declares the Lord. 18 ‘Do consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month; from the day when the temple of the Lord was founded, consider: 19 Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree, it has not borne fruit. Yet from this day on I will bless you.’”
20 Then the word of the Lord came a second time to Haggai on the twenty-fourth day of the month, saying, 21 “Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah, saying, ‘I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. 22 I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another.’ 23 ‘On that day,’ declares the Lord of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,’” declares the Lord of hosts.
Zephaniah 1:2-9: 2 “I will completely remove all things from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord. 3 “I will remove man and beast; I will remove the birds of the sky and the fish of the sea, and the ruins along with the wicked; and I will cut off man from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord. 4 “So I will stretch out My hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the names of the idolatrous priests along with the priests. 5 “And those who bow down on the housetops to the host of heaven, and those who bow down and swear to the Lord and yet swear by Milcom, 6 And those who have turned back from following the Lord, and those who have not sought the Lord or inquired of Him.”
7 Be silent before the Lord God! for the day of the Lord is near, for the Lord has prepared a sacrifice, He consecrated His guests. 8 “Then it will come about on the day of the Lord’s sacrifice that I will punish the princes, the king’s sons and all who clothe themselves with foreign garments. 9 “And I will punish on that day all who leap on the temple threshold, who fill the house of their lord with violence and deceit.
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 Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai has not turned his back on those whom HE CHOSE in ADVANCE. He has kept for Himself a REMNANT who have not knelt down to Ba’al, to Humanism, to Socialism and all forms of RELIGION that deny the POWER of the One True God and SALVATION through His Son, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah.
» I decree and declare the REMNANT, today as always, has been CHOSEN by GRACE! What follows is that Israel has not ATTAINED the GOAL for which she is striving. The ONES CHOSEN have OBTAINED it, but the rest have been made stonelike. By Israel’s STUMBLING DELIVERANCE has come to the Nations, in order to Provoke Israel to jealousy. Their stumbling has brought RICHES to the World – how much greater riches will Israel in its fullness bring them.
» I decree and declare who is there who remembers the GLORY of the Lord manifested in days gone by? The Lord says, “The appearance of the churches and synagogues today may not seem much of a contrast if you have not known my GLORY. But TAKE COURAGE, all you People of the Land. GET TO WORK to RESTORE My House! FOR I AM WITH YOU, says the Lord of Hosts/Adonai-Tzva’ot!
» I decree and declare the Lord will SHAKE ALL the NATIONS, so that the TREASURES of all the Nations will FLOW IN; and He will FILL HIS HOUSE WITH GLORY!!! The Glory of this New House will SURPASS that of the Old, and in this Place HE WILL GRANT PEACE/SHALOM!
» I decree and declare the RECESSION, the LACK, the DISAPPEARANCE of your FINANCES and PROSPERITY has been due to the un-Holy condition of your hearts and of this nation. The Nation has been un-clean. HOWEVER, as the HOUSE OF GOD has its FOUNDATION laid again in the Nation, the GLORY OF THE LORD IS RETURNING and, from this day on, HE WILL BLESS THE LAND!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai will SHAKE the Heavens and the Earth, He will OVERTURN the Thrones of Kingdoms, He will DESTROY the Strength of the Kingdoms of the Nations, and He will Overturn the Chariots and the People riding in them. When that day comes, He will take the Prophet, His Servant, and wear Him like a Signet Ring, for He has CHOSEN the Prophet.
» I decree and declare the Lord is STRETCHING His Hand over this Land. He is WIPING AWAY every remnant of Baal, the idol-serving priests and even their names , every sign or tool of witchcraft and its altars, those who worship and swear by the Name of the Lord/Adonai but swear by Milcom as well, those who turned away from following the Lord/Adonai, and those who haven’t sought Him or consulted Him at all.
» I decree and declare the Lord has INVITED His Chosen Ones, you who have been SET APART by His Spirit. He has prepared a Sacrifice, for the Day of the Lord/Adonai is near. When the time comes for the Lord’s/Adonai’s Sacrifice, He will PUNISH the Leaders and sons of the King, also those who dress in Foreign Clothes. He will also punish all who JUMP OVER the threshold to fill the house of their master with VIOLENCE and DECEIT.
» 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!
