DECLARATIONS & DECREES: YOUR TRUST IS INCREASING AS YOU PERSEVERE – YOU WILL BE WHOLE, LACKING IN NOTHING!
April 9, 2019 – Matthew 5:6-16; James 1:2-6; 2 Timothy 2:15-19; Acts 4:24-35 (NASB)
Matthew 5:6-16: 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; 15 nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
James 1:2-6: 2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
2 Timothy 2:15-19: 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, 17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”
Acts 4:24-35: 24 And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, “O Lord, it is You who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, 25 who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, ‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples devise futile things? 26 ‘The kings of the earth took their stand, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord and against His Christ.’
27 For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur. 29 And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, 30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.
32 And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them. 33 And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. 34 For there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell them and bring the proceeds of the sales 35 and lay them at the apostles’ feet, and they would be distributed to each as any had need.
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 HUNGER and THIRST for God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS and you will be FILLED. For some of you who are not THIRSTING and HUNGERING, something is wrong: you are lukewarm. Wake up and DESIRE to be FILLED with the FULLNESS of Christ!
» I decree and declare you who are persecuted are BLESSED because you PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS – the Kingdom of Heaven is yours! You are BLESSED when you are insulted and persecuted and have all kinds of vicious lies told about you BECAUSE YOU FOLLOW CHRIST/MESSIAH!
» I decree and declare your REWARD is GREAT in Heaven, so REJOICE! Know that the Prophets before you were persecuted in the same way. You are SALT for the LAND! But if SALT becomes tasteless, how can it be made salty again? You are LIGHT for the World. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, you LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE before people, so that they may SEE the good things you do and PRAISE your Father in Heaven.
» I decree and declare, as you go through temptations and testings, your TRUST is increasing and produces PERSEVERANCE. PERSEVERANCE will do its complete Work, so that you will be COMPLETE and WHOLE, lacking in nothing.
» I decree and declare, if any of you lacks WISDOM, ask God, Who GIVES TO ALL GENEROUSLY and without reproach; and it will be given to you! Remember to ASK IN TRUST, doubting nothing, for the doubter is like a wave in the sea being tossed and driven by the wind.
» I decree and declare I am doing all I can to PRESENT myself to God as someone WORTHY of His approval, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because I deal STRAIGHTFORWARDLY with the WORD of the TRUTH!
» I decree and declare God’s FIRM FOUNDATION STANDS, stamped with the words, “The Lord KNOWS His Own,” and “Let Everyone who claims he belongs to the Lord STAND APART from wrongdoing!”
» I decree and declare we PRAY with SINGLENESS of HEART, to God Almighty/El Shaddai, Who made Heaven, Earth, the Sea and Everything in them. Our Father is STRENGTHENING us to HEAL the sick and SPEAK His message with BOLDNESS.
» I decree and declare All Believers are in one Heart and Soul, and in UNITY sharing Everything they have. With GREAT POWER the Apostles and Students CONTINUE TESTIFYING to the RESURRECTION of the Lord Jesus/Adonai Yeshua, and are held in High regard.
» 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!
