DECLARATIONS & DECREES: AS YOU DWELL WITH THE LORD, YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE CLEARLY!
February 19, 2019 – Jeremiah 29:11-14; Job 37:1-5; Galatians 5:5-10; John 10:1-16; Matthew 18:1-7 (NASB)
Jeremiah 29:11-14: 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
Job 37:1-5: 1 “At this also my heart trembles, and leaps from its place. 2 “Listen closely to the thunder of His voice, and the rumbling that goes out from His mouth. 3 “Under the whole heaven He lets it loose, and His lightning to the ends of the earth. 4 “After it, a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, and He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard. 5 “God thunders with His voice wondrously, doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
Galatians 5:5-10: 5 For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.
7 You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. 10 I have confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.
John 10:1-16: 1 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6 This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.
7 So Jesus said to them again, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, 15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd.
Matthew 18:1-7: 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, 3 and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 “Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!
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 Lord/Adonai LOVES you dearly. He has GREAT PLANS for you: plans for WELL-BEING, not for bad things; so that you will have HOPE and a FUTURE! As you CALL to the Lord/Adonai and PRAY, He will LISTEN to you. As you SEEK Him, you will FIND Him, when you SEEK for Him WHOLEHEARTEDLY!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai will REVERSE your Exile. He will GATHER you from the Nations and Places where you have been DRIVEN and BRING YOU BACK to the Place where you BELONG!
» I decree and declare the Lord’s/Adonai’s GREATNESS is beyond my COMPREHENSION! At this, my own Heart Trembles and LEAPS out of its place. Just LISTENING to the RUMBLING of His VOICE, to the Thunder that comes from His Mouth! He sends it out under all of Heaven, His LIGHTNING to the Ends of the Earth!
» I decree and declare as the Lord/Adonai SPEAKS, there follows a SOUND, a ROAR – He is THUNDERING with His Majestic VOICE, and He KEEPS RELEASING the LIGHTNING even while His VOICE is being heard! God/Elohim THUNDERS WONDERFULLY with His VOICE, He does GREAT things BEYOND OUR UNDERSTANDING!
» I decree and declare it is by the POWER of the Spirit/Ruach, Who WORKS in us because we TRUST and are FAITHFUL, that we CONFIDENTLY EXPECT our HOPE of attaining RIGHTEOUSNESS to be fulfilled. When we are UNITED with Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, what matters is TRUSTING FAITHFULNESS EXPRESSING ITSELF THROUGH LOVE!
» I decree and declare to some of you, you were running the RACE well; WHO HAS STOPPED YOU from FOLLOWING the TRUTH? Whatever means of PERSUASION he used was not from the One Who CALLS you. I am CONFIDENT that since you are UNITED with the Lord, you will take no other view; and I am CONFIDENT that the one who has been disturbing you will have to BEAR HIS PUNISHMENT.
» I decree and declare the person who doesn’t ENTER the sheep pen through the DOOR, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. But the One who goes in through the GATE is the sheep’s own SHEPHERD. This is the One the Gate-Keeper admits, and the SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE. He CALLS His own sheep, each one by name, and leads them out. The Shepherd goes on ahead of them and they FOLLOW HIM because they RECOGNIZE His VOICE. They never follow a stranger because strangers’ voices are UNFAMILIAR to them.
» I decree and declare Jesus/Yeshua is the GATE for the Sheep. All those who came before Him were thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn’t listen to them. Jesus/Yeshua is the GATE, if anyone enters through Him, HE WILL BE SAFE and will go in and out and find PASTURE.
» I decree and declare Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah is the Good Shepherd Who lays down His LIFE for the Sheep. The hired hand, since he isn’t a shepherd and the sheep aren’t his own, SEES THE WOLF COMING, abandons the sheep and runs away. Jesus/Yeshua is the GOOD SHEPHERD, He KNOWS HIS OWN, and HIS OWN KNOW HIM – Just as the Father knows Jesus/Yeshua and He knows the Father – and He LAYS DOWN HIS LIFE on behalf of the sheep.
» I decree and declare the GREATEST in the Kingdom of Heaven are those who BECOME LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN. Whoever makes himself as HUMBLE as a Child is the GREATEST in the Kingdom. With SIMPLICITY and TOTAL TRUST, lean into the arms of your Lord and Savior, your FRIEND Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah.
» 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!
