DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GREATER ARE YOU WHO SERVE!
February 5, 2019 – Luke 22:25-30; Matthew 20:20-28; Acts 26:13-18; 1 Corinthians 12:4-13 (NASB)
Luke 22:25-30: 25 And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’ 26 But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. 27 For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.
28 “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials; 29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Matthew 20:20-28: 20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to Jesus with her sons, bowing down and making a request of Him. 21 And He said to her, “What do you wish?” She said to Him, “Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit one on Your right and one on Your left.” 22 But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?” They said to Him, “We are able.” 23 He said to them, “My cup you shall drink; but to sit on My right and on My left, this is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father.”
24 And hearing this, the ten became indignant with the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 26 It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, 27 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Acts 26:13-18: 13 at midday, O King, I saw on the way a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining all around me and those who were journeying with me. 14 And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew dialect, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 15 And I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. 16 But get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to you, to appoint you a minister and a witness not only to the things which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to you; 17 rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, 18 to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’
1 Corinthians 12:4-13: 4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
12 For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
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 (Revelation 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).
» I decree and declare the greater among you will be LIKE THE YOUNGER, and one who rules like ONE WHO SERVES. You follow Jesus Christ’s/Yeshua Messiah’s EXAMPLE as One WHO SERVES.
» I decree and declare you REMAIN with the Lord/Adonai through the TRIALS. Just as His Father gave Him the RIGHT to RULE, so He will give you an appointment in the Kingdom to come. You are a kingdom for God to RULE, Priests/Cohanim to SERVE HIM; you will RULE OVER the EARTH! (Revelation 5:10)
» I decree and declare it is the Father/Abba Who will determine who will sit on Christ’s/Messiah’s right and left; it is not for Christ/Messiah to choose. As Believers in Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah we do not presume an elevated position above that which the Scriptures indicate. All that we have and will receive is due to His MERCY and GRACE. It is nothing that we in ourselves have earned.
» I decree and declare among the People of God, whoever wants to be a leader must become your SERVANT, and whoever wants to be first must be your SLAVE! For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to SERVE – and to give His LIFE as a RANSOM for many.
» I decree and declare as Jesus/Yeshua appeared to Saul/Sha’ul to appoint him to SERVE, so does His Spirit indwell all Believers to SERVE and BEAR WITNESS to what you have SEEN and KNOW of Christ.
» I decree and declare you are sent into all the World to open their eyes, so that they will TURN from darkness to LIGHT, from the power of the Adversary to God, and thus RECEIVE FORGIVENESS of sins and a place among those who have been SEPARATED for HOLINESS by putting their TRUST in Christ/Messiah.
» I decree and declare there are different kinds of GIFTS, but the same Spirit gives them all. Also there are different ways of SERVING, but it is the SAME LORD being SERVED. And there are different modes of WORKING, but it is the SAME GOD WORKING them all in Everyone.
» I decree and declare to each Person is given the particular MANIFESTATION of the Spirit that is for the COMMON GOOD. To one is given a Word of WISDOM; to another, a Word of KNOWLEDGE; to another FAITH; and to another, Gifts of HEALING; to another, the Working of MIRACLES; to another PROPHECY; to another, the Ability to JUDGE between spirits; to another, the ability to speak in different kinds of tongues; and to yet another, the ABILITY to INTERPRET tongues. One and the same Spirit is at work in all these things, DISTRIBUTING to each Person AS HE CHOOSES.
» I decree and declare for just as the BODY is ONE but has MANY PARTS, and all the parts of the Body, though many, CONSTITUTE ONE BODY; so it is with Christ/Messiah. For it was by one Spirit that we were all immersed into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free; and we were all give the one Spirit to drink.
» 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!
