DECLARATIONS & DECREES: MY LIFE IS TO GLORIFY GOD — I WILL LIVE FOR CHRIST!
August 10, 2019 – 1 Corinthians 10:23-33;Colossians 3:1-17; Psalm 1:1-6 (NASB)
1 Corinthians 10:23-33: 23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. 24 Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor. 25 Eat anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience’ sake; 26 for the earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains. 27 If one of the unbelievers invites you and you want to go, eat anything that is set before you without asking questions for conscience’ sake. 28 But if anyone says to you, “This is meat sacrificed to idols,” do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for conscience’ sake; 29 I mean not your own conscience, but the other man’s; for why is my freedom judged by another’s conscience? 30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks?
31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 32 Give no offense either to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God; 33 just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, so that they may be saved.
Colossians 3:1-17: 1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. 6 For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, 7 and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. 8 But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. 14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Psalm 1:1-6: 1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
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 WALK to HELP and BUILD UP for the GOOD of my neighbor. All that I do will be to ALLOW the LOVE of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua Messiah to be expressed. Therefore, whether I eat or drink or whatever I do, I do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD!
» I decree and declare I try to please Everyone in Everything, not seeking my own benefit but the BENEFIT of MANY, so that they may be SAVED!
» I decree and declare I have been RAISED UP WITH CHRIST/MESSIAH, so I will CONTINUE TO SEEK THE THINGS ABOVE – where Christ/Messiah is, sitting at the Right Hand of God. My MIND IS FOCUSED ON THINGS ABOVE, not on the things of this Earth, for I HAVE DIED, and my LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST/MESSIAH in God/Elohim!
» I decree and declare I am PUTTING TO DEATH what is Earthly within myself – evil desires and greed – for that is idolatry and is at enmity with God/Elohim. It is because of such things that God’s/Elohim’s wrath is coming upon the sons of disobedience. I have set them all aside – anger, rage, malice, slander, and foul language out of my mouth.
» I decree and declare I have TAKEN OFF the OLD SELF with its practices and PUT ON the NEW SELF that is being RENEWED IN KNOWLEDGE, according to the IMAGE of the ONE WHO CREATED HIM.
» I decree and declare, as one of God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE, Holy and Dearly Loved, I am CLOTHED IN TENDER COMPASSION, KINDNESS, GENTLENESS, AND PATIENCE – bearing with one another and FORGIVING each other, if Anyone has a grievance against another. As the Lord has PARDONED me, so I must PARDON others.
» I decree and declare, above all these things, I PUT ON LOVE, which is the BOND of PERFECT HARMONY. I let the PEACE/SHALOM of Christ/Messiah RULE IN MY HEART, for to this Peace/Shalom I was surely CALLED in One Body!
» I decree and declare I am THANKFUL. I will allow the Word of Christ/Messiah to dwell in me richly, as I TEACH and ADMONISH others with all WISDOM in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs, Singing with GRATITUDE in my Heart to God/Elohim. In ALL I DO, I will do in the Name of the Lord Jesus/Adonai Yeshua, giving THANKS to God the Father/Elohim Abba through Him.
» I decree and declare I will not walk in the advice of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers. But MY DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW/TORAH OF THE LORD/ADONAI, and on His Law/Torah do I MEDITATE DAY and NIGHT!
» I decree and declare I will be as a Tree PLANTED over STREAMS of Water, PRODUCING its FRUIT during its Season. Its leaf never droops – but in all I do, I SUCCEED! The Lord KNOWS THE WAY OF THE RIGHTEOUS!
» 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!
