DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I AM A FRIEND OF GOD!
February 9, 2019 – Isaiah 6:1-3; John 15:12-17; 17:1-26; Exodus 33:12-17 (NASB)
Isaiah 6:1-3: 1 In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory.”
John 17:1-26: 1 Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You, 2 even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life. 3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
6 “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7 Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You; 8 for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me. 9 I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours; 10 and all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11 I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are. 12 While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name which You have given Me; and I guarded them and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled.
13 But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
25 “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; 26 and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
Exodus 33:12-17: 12 Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people!’ But You Yourself have not let me know whom You will send with me. Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’ 13 Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people.” 14 And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” 15 Then he said to Him, “If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16 For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?”
17 The Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name.”
John 15:12-17: 12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17 This I command you, that you love one another.
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 of Hosts/Adonai Tzva’ot is beckoning us to COME, COME through the veil that was rent by the Lamb that was Slain! Come and Enter His Presence through Christ Jesus/Yeshua Messiah! The Hem of His Robe, His GLORY, fills the Temple! More HOLY than the Holiest Holiness is the Lord/Adonai!
» I decree and declare ETERNAL LIFE is Christ’s/Messiah’s GIFT to all whom the Father has given Him. This ETERNAL LIFE is to KNOW the Father, the One True God, and Him whom He sent, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah!
» I decree and declare the True Believers KNOW that everything the Father gave the Son is from Him; Christ/Messiah gave the Father’s Words to those who TRUST and BELIEVE. We are in the World and the Father GUARDS us by the POWER of His Name, which has been given to Christ/Messiah. We are One in Jesus/Yeshua, just as He is One with the Father.
» I decree and declare the Father is PROTECTING us from the evil one. We do not belong to the World, but we have been SET APART for HOLINESS by means of the TRUTH—the Father’s Word is TRUTH! It was on our behalf that Christ/Messiah set himself apart for HOLINESS, so that we too have been set apart for HOLINESS by means of the Truth.
» I decree and declare Christ/Messiah prays not only for us, but for those who will TRUST in Him because of our word, that we may all be one. Just as the Father and the Son are UNITED, He prays that we may be united with them, so that the World will BELIEVE that He was sent by the Father.
» I decree and declare Jesus/Yeshua has given GLORY of the Father to the Believers, so that we may be One just as they are One. Christ/Messiah is united with us, and the Father with Him, so that we may be COMPLETELY ONE, and the World will realize that the Father sent the Son, and that He loves us just as He loves Jesus/Yeshua.
» I decree and declare the World has not known the Righteous Father, but He is KNOWN by Christ/Messiah and those sent to Him by the Father have known Him. Jesus/Yeshua has made the Father’s Name known to us, and He Himself will be UNITED with us.
» I decree and declare Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai, I PRAISE Your Holy Name. I BLESS You, You Who CREATED the Universe, and Who KNOWS ME BY NAME. Lord/Adonai SHOW me Your Ways, so that I will UNDERSTAND You and continue finding FAVOR in Your sight. Thank You, Father, for giving us Your Spirit/Ruach, that Your Presence is with us always.
» I decree and declare the World will KNOW that Your People, Lord/Adonai, are SET APART; they will SEE God’s Presence that distinguishes us from all the other Peoples on Earth!
» I decree and declare that I am a FRIEND of Christ’s/Messiah’s for I do what He has commanded. He calls us friends, because everything He heard from the Father He has made known to us. We did not choose Him, He chose us, and He has COMMISSIONED us to GO and BEAR FRUIT, fruit that will last!
» 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!
