DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I LIVE TO PLEASE GOD NOT MAN!
April 7, 2019 – Acts 17:5-17; John 5:36-47; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22 (NASB)
Acts 17:5-17: 5 But the Jews, becoming jealous and taking along some wicked men from the market place, formed a mob and set the city in an uproar; and attacking the house of Jason, they were seeking to bring them out to the people. 6 When they did not find them, they began dragging Jason and some brethren before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have upset the world have come here also; 7 and Jason has welcomed them, and they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” 8 They stirred up the crowd and the city authorities who heard these things. 9 And when they had received a pledge from Jason and the others, they released them.
10 The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed, along with a number of prominent Greek women and men. 13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica found out that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Berea also, they came there as well, agitating and stirring up the crowds. 14 Then immediately the brethren sent Paul out to go as far as the sea; and Silas and Timothy remained there. 15 Now those who escorted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they left.
16 Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he was observing the city full of idols. 17 So he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present.
John 5:36-47: 36 But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.
37 And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form. 38 You do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He sent.
39 [c]You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40 and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. 41 I do not receive glory from men; 42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves. 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. 44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
1 Thessalonians 5:12 -22: 12 But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, 13 and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another. 14 We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 16 Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every form of evil.
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 you will NOT BE ALARMED when the people of the city grow jealous and organize people to riot against you. For those of the World do not know how to process or handle the TRUTH of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah and the Power of Holy Spirit. We pray that their EYES and EARS will be opened to the TRUTH!
» I decree and declare the Believers of God Almighty/El Shaddai and Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, His Son, will WELCOME YOU! True Followers are of Noble Character and EAGERLY WELCOME the MESSAGE you bring; checking the Scriptures every day to see if the things shared are TRUE.
» I decree and declare the Lord will GUIDE you, He will have His Servants direct you which way to go and how to avoid the agitated crowds. Communication among the BELIEVERS is crucial as the Spirit is moving and LEADING us in His Way.
» I decree and declare your Hearts will be DISTURBED at the idols, the evil around you and the words spoken that do not align with the Word of God. You will hold discussions with the Believers and all who are HUNGRY to hear the TRUTH. This will STRENGTHEN the UNITY of the Body in His TRUTH!
» I decree and declare, as it was with Jesus/Yeshua, the things you do will TESTIFY of the Spirit working through you. The Works and the Fruit you and others produce will bear witness of whose POWER you are functioning under. Be cautious and TEST all spirits. Verify that all you do and say ALIGNS with SCRIPTURES, the TRUE WORD OF GOD!
» I decree and declare you who TRUST the Father, Who sent Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, will RECEIVE the Words spoken by Jesus/Yeshua. And His Words will REMAIN in you which lead to Eternal Life. Those who search and search the Scriptures, without FAITH in the Father will never come to Eternal Life because they don’t TRUST the One He sent.
» I decree and declare that I do not collect praise from men, but I do know that there are many who have no love for God in them. As I share the Word of God, they will not accept me, but yet they will accept someone who comes in their own name. Those who look to gain praise from men are unable to TRUST IN GOD!
» I decree and declare you will RESPECT those who are working hard among you, those who are GUIDING you in the Lord and CONFRONTING you in order to help you change. Treat them with the highest REGARD and LOVE because of the work they are doing.
» I decree and declare you will LIVE AT PEACE with the People of God; but will be bold enough to CONFRONT those who need correction or are lazy, your aim is to help them CHANGE, to ENCOURAGE the timid, to assist the weak, and to be PATIENT with Everyone.
» I decree and declare you PRAY REGULARLY and are ALWAYS JOYFUL! In Everything you GIVE THANKS, for this is what God wants from you who are UNITED with Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» 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!
