DECLARATIONS & DECREES: TURN FROM YOUR IDOLATRY & REPENT!
July 6, 2019 – Jeremiah 7:1-20; 44:13-29; Revelation 2:18-29 (NASB)
Jeremiah 7:1-20: 1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house and proclaim there this word and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah, who enter by these gates to worship the Lord!’” 3 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place. 4 Do not trust in deceptive words, saying, ‘This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.’ 5 For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly practice justice between a man and his neighbor, 6 if you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, nor walk after other gods to your own ruin, 7 then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.
8 “Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail. 9 Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal and walk after other gods that you have not known, 10 then come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’—that you may do all these abominations? 11 Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” declares the Lord.
12 “But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I made My name dwell at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel. 13 And now, because you have done all these things,” declares the Lord, “and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you but you did not answer, 14 therefore, I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave you and your fathers, as I did to Shiloh. 15 I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim.
16 “As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you. 17 Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods in order to spite Me. 19 Do they spite Me?” declares the Lord. “Is it not themselves they spite, to their own shame?” 20 Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, My anger and My wrath will be poured out on this place, on man and on beast and on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground; and it will burn and not be quenched.”
Jeremiah 44:13-29: 13 And I will punish those who live in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, with the sword, with famine and with pestilence. 14 So there will be no refugees or survivors for the remnant of Judah who have entered the land of Egypt to reside there and then to return to the land of Judah, to which they are longing to return and live; for none will return except a few refugees.’”
15 Then all the men who were aware that their wives were burning sacrifices to other gods, along with all the women who were standing by, as a large assembly, including all the people who were living in Pathros in the land of Egypt, responded to Jeremiah, saying, 16 “As for the message that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we are not going to listen to you! 17 But rather we will certainly carry out every word that has proceeded from our mouths, by burning sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, just as we ourselves, our forefathers, our kings and our princes did in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; for then we had plenty of food and were well off and saw no misfortune. 18 But since we stopped burning sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have met our end by the sword and by famine.” 19 “And,” said the women, “when we were burning sacrifices to the queen of heaven and were pouring out drink offerings to her, was it without our husbands that we made for her sacrificial cakes in her image and poured out drink offerings to her?”
20 Then Jeremiah said to all the people, to the men and women—even to all the people who were giving him such an answer—saying, 21 “As for the smoking sacrifices that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your forefathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the Lord remember them and did not all this come into His mind? 22 So the Lord was no longer able to endure it, because of the evil of your deeds, because of the abominations which you have committed; thus your land has become a ruin, an object of horror and a curse, without an inhabitant, as it is this day. 23 Because you have burned sacrifices and have sinned against the Lord and not obeyed the voice of the Lord or walked in His law, His statutes or His testimonies, therefore this calamity has befallen you, as it has this day.”
24 Then Jeremiah said to all the people, including all the women, “Hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who are in the land of Egypt, 25 thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, as follows: ‘As for you and your wives, you have spoken with your mouths and fulfilled it with your hands, saying, “We will certainly perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her.”Go ahead and confirm your vows, and certainly perform your vows!’ 26 Nevertheless hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who are living in the land of Egypt, ‘Behold, I have sworn by My great name,’ says the Lord, ‘never shall My name be invoked again by the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, “As the Lord God lives.” 27 Behold, I am watching over them for harm and not for good, and all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt will meet their end by the sword and by famine until they are completely gone. 28 Those who escape the sword will return out of the land of Egypt to the land of Judah few in number. Then all the remnant of Judah who have gone to the land of Egypt to reside there will know whose word will stand, Mine or theirs. 29 This will be the sign to you,’ declares the Lord, ‘that I am going to punish you in this place, so that you may know that My words will surely stand against you for harm.’
Revelation 2:18-29: 18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this: 19 ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. 20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. 22 Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. 24 But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them—I place no other burden on you. 25 Nevertheless what you have, hold fast until I come. 26 He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; 27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
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 HEAR the Word of the Lord/Adonai, all you who come to WORSHIP the Lord/Adonai. Thus says the Lord of Hosts/Adonai-Tzva’ot, the God/Elohim of Israel: “MEND YOUR WAYS and YOUR DEEDS, and I will let you live in this place. DO NOT TRUST DECEPTIVE WORDS and say ‘The Temple of the Lord/Adonai’, yet your Hearts are far from Me.
» I decree and declare to MEND your ways is to do JUSTICE between a man and his neighbor, not oppressing the sojourner, orphan and widow nor shedding innocent blood, nor going after other gods to your own ruin –then God will let you dwell in His Presence, in the Land that He gave to your Fathers FOREVER and EVER. Beware, you are trusting in DECEPTIVE WORDS that are empty.
» I decree and declare the Lord SEES, He knows those who steal, murder, and commit adultery and perjury, and offer incense to Baal and walk after OTHER GODS whom you have not known – and then come and stand before Him, in His House that bears His Name, but has become a den of robbers. The Lord has seen it!
» I decree and declare BEWARE of the one who calls herself the queen of heaven; she is a deception to draw mankind from the One True God. Her enticements are lies; she is Ishtar, also known as Ashtoreth, the wife of Baal or Molech! Why do you choose to PROVOKE the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai?
» I decree and declare those who continue to PROVOKE the Lord/Adonai will be punished by the sword, by famine, and by plague. Those who have been called the People of the Lord but have turned their backs and DEFILED themselves by burning incense and giving sacrifices to other gods, you will be cut off. You have REBELLED and said, “As for the Word that you spoke to us in the Name of the Lord/Adonai, we are not going to listen to you! Instead we will definitely do every word as went out of our mouth – burning incense to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, just as we did, we and our fathers, and we saw no calamity.”
» I decree and declare REGIONS will become wastelands, desolations and curses, without inhabitants – the Lord/Adonai can no longer endure your evil deeds, because of the ABOMINATIONS that you have committed. Because you have burned incense, because you have sinned against the Lord/Adonai and HAVE NOT LISTENED to the voice of the Lord/Adonai, nor walked in His Law/Torah, nor in His Statutes, nor in His Testimonies – that is why this calamity is coming upon you.
» I decree and declare the Son of God, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah, Who has Eyes like a FLAME of FIRE and feet like polished bronze says: “I KNOW your deeds and your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your last deeds are greater than the first. But this I have against you, that you TOLERATE that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess – yet she is teaching and DECEIVING My servants to commit sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai says: “I gave her time to REPENT, but she REFUSES to REPENT of her immorality. Behold, I will throw her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation – UNLESS THEY REPENT OF HER DOINGS.”
» I decree and declare all the Christian/Messianic Communities will KNOW that it is Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah Who SEARCHES Minds and Hearts and will give to each according to their deeds.
» I decree and declare to those who do not hold to the teachings of false gods and the ‘deep things’ of satan, HOLD FIRM to what you have until Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah COMES. To the one who OVERCOMES and GUARDS His Deeds until the end, He will give him AUTHORITY over the Nations.
» 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!
