DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I WILL OBEY GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CALLED ME!
July 31, 2019 – 1 Timothy 1:18-20; 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8; Romans 6:16-23; 1 Peter 2:9-17 (NASB)
1 Timothy 1:18-20: 18 This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight, 19 keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith. 20 Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so that they will be taught not to blaspheme.
1 Thessalonians 2:1-8: 1 For you yourselves know, brethren, that our coming to you was not in vain, 2 but after we had already suffered and been mistreated in Philippi, as you know, we had the boldness in our God to speak to you the gospel of God amid much opposition. 3 For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; 4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts. 5 For we never came with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness— 6 nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as apostles of Christ we might have asserted our authority. 7 But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. 8 Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us.
Romans 6:16-23: 16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.
20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. 22 But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Peter 2:9-17: 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. 12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16 Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. 17 Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.
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 I will REMEMBER to walk in the WAY I have been CALLED: my SALVATION in Christ/Messiah and the specific DIRECTIVES and COMMISSIONS that the Lord/Adonai has ENTRUSTED to me! I ACCEPT the CHARGE to FIGHT the good FIGHT, holding onto FAITH and a good Conscience.
» I decree and declare we have BOLDNESS in our God/Elohim to TELL of the Good News—even in the midst of much opposition. We have been APPROVED by God/Elohim to be ENTRUSTED with the Good News, SO WE DECLARE IT – not pleasing men but rather God/Elohim, Who examines our hearts!
» I decree and declare we do not come with a word of flattery or a motive of greed or seeking glory from people; rather in SIMPLICITY we share not only the GOOD NEWS of God/Elohim but also our very souls, to you who have become dear to us.
» I decree and declare THANKS to GOD that though you were slaves of sin, you WHOLEHEARTEDLY OBEYED the teaching you received and, after you were set free from sin, you became ENSLAVED to RIGHTEOUSNESS!
» I decree and declare I YIELD my body a slave to RIGHTEOUSNESS, RESULTING in HOLINESS. I will no longer yield myself as a slave to sin which results in death. I AM ENSLAVED to GOD with fruit resulting in HOLINESS, and the outcome is ETERNAL LIFE.
» I decree and declare you are a CHOSEN PEOPLE, a Royal Priesthood, a Holy Nation, a PEOPLE for GOD’S OWN POSSESSION, so that you may PROCLAIM the PRAISES of the One Who CALLED YOU OUT of darkness into His Marvelous LIGHT! You are NOW GOD’S PEOPLE and He has shown you HIS GREAT MERCY!
» I decree and declare I am a SOJOURNER in this World and DISCIPLINE my body to keep away from the fleshly cravings that war against the soul. I keep my conduct HONORABLE among all People; then while they speak against me as evildoers, they may – from noticing my good deeds – glorify God in the day of Visitation.
» I decree and declare I SUBMIT myself to every human authority, for the Lord’s sake, for it is God’s WILL that I silence the ignorance of foolish men by doing good. We are to live as FREE People, living as God’s Slaves, HONORING ALL PEOPLE. We Love those in Christ/Messiah, FEAR God/Elohim, and HONOR those who are our leaders in government!
» 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!
