DECLARATIONS & DECREES: REMAIN FAITHFUL & HUMBLE BEFORE THE LORD!
August 11, 2019 – 2 Chronicles 26:1-6, 15-21; Isaiah 58:1-14; Romans 12:1-18 (NASB)
2 Chronicles 26:1-6, 15-21: 1 And all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the place of his father Amaziah. 2 He built Eloth and restored it to Judah after the king slept with his fathers. 3 Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Jechiliah of Jerusalem. 4 He did right in the sight of the Lord according to all that his father Amaziah had done. 5 He continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him.
6 Now he went out and warred against the Philistines, and broke down the wall of Gath and the wall of Jabneh and the wall of Ashdod; and he built cities in the area of Ashdod and among the Philistines.…
15 In Jerusalem he made engines of war invented by skillful men to be on the towers and on the corners for the purpose of shooting arrows and great stones. Hence his fame spread afar, for he was marvelously helped until he was strong.
16 But when he became strong, his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the Lord his God, for he entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Then Azariah the priest entered after him and with him eighty priests of the Lord, valiant men. 18 They opposed Uzziah the king and said to him, “It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord, but for the priests, the sons of Aaron who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful and will have no honor from the Lord God.” 19 But Uzziah, with a censer in his hand for burning incense, was enraged; and while he was enraged with the priests, the leprosy broke out on his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, beside the altar of incense. 20 Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and behold, he was leprous on his forehead; and they hurried him out of there, and he himself also hastened to get out because the Lord had smitten him. 21 King Uzziah was a leper to the day of his death; and he lived in a separate house, being a leper, for he was cut off from the house of the Lord. And Jotham his son was over the king’s house judging the people of the land.
Isaiah 58:1-14: 1 “Cry loudly, do not hold back; raise your voice like a trumpet, and declare to My people their transgression and to the house of Jacob their sins. 2 “Yet they seek Me day by day and delight to know My ways, as a nation that has done righteousness and has not forsaken the ordinance of their God. They ask Me for just decisions, they delight in the nearness of God. 3 ‘Why have we fasted and You do not see? Why have we humbled ourselves and You do not notice?’ Behold, on the day of your fast you find your desire, and drive hard all your workers. 4 “Behold, you fast for contention and strife and to strike with a wicked fist. You do not fast like you do today to make your voice heard on high. 5 “Is it a fast like this which I choose, a day for a man to humble himself? Is it for bowing one’s head like a reed and for spreading out sackcloth and ashes as a bed? Will you call this a fast, even an acceptable day to the Lord? 6 “Is this not the fast which I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free and break every yoke? 7 “Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, to cover him; and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? 8 “Then your light will break out like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth; and your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 9 “Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ If you remove the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness, 10 And if you give yourself to the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness and your gloom will become like midday. 11 “And the Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire in scorched places, and give strength to your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. 12 “Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the age-old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell.
13 “If because of the sabbath, you turn your foot from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the Lord honorable, and honor it, desisting from your own ways, from seeking your own pleasure and speaking your own word, 14 Then you will take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; and I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Romans 12:1-18: 1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. 4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 13 contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. 17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
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, who do what is RIGHT in the Eyes of the Lord/Adonai, will be BLESSED by Him. That is to CONTINUE TO SEEK GOD and to gain WISDOM from His Prophets and His Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh. In this way GOD WILL PROSPER YOU!
» I decree and declare it is a DANGEROUS WALK to gain fame and prosperity while TURNING AWAY FROM GOD ALMIGHTY/EL SHADDAI. The Lord/Adonai SEES the heart and KNOWS what your actions are. God will not share His GLORY with anyone.
» I decree and declare it is TIME TO REPENT! Those who SEEK the Lord, day to day and DELIGHT TO KNOW His ways, as if they are a People who are doing RIGHT, but at the same time HAVE FORSAKEN THEIR GOD’S DECREE. GOD/ELOHIM IS JUST and cannot be co-mingled with sin!
» I decree and declare RIGHTEOUS ACTIONS without righteous living will not be acknowledged by the Lord God/Adonai Elohim. DO NOT BE DECEIVED! Come before the Lord with REPENTANCE; TURN FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS and SEEK HIS FACE, then He will HEAR from Heaven and FORGIVE. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
» I decree and declare TAKE NOTICE why your prayers are not answered. You ask, “Why have we fasted, yet You do not see? Why have we afflicted our souls, yet You take no notice?” Behold, in the day of your fast YOU SEEK YOUR OWN PLEASURE and exploit all your laborers. Behold, you fast for strife and contention and to strike with a wicked fist. THIS IS NOT THE FAST OF THE LORD.
» I decree and declare the FAST OF THE LORD is to RELEASE the Bonds of wickedness, to UNTIE the cords of the yoke, to LET THE OPPRESSED GO FREE, and to Tear off every Yoke! It is to SHARE YOUR BREAD with the Hungry, to bring the Homeless poor into your house. When you see the naked, to cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh and blood.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai says, “As you WALK IN MY WAY, then YOUR LIGHT WILL BREAK FORTH like the dawn, and your healing will spring up SPEEDILY. Your RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL GO FORTH before you, the GLORY of the Lord/Adonai as your rear guard!”
» I decree and declare, as you WALK in FAITHFULNESS and HUMILITY, the Lord will GUIDE YOU continually, satisfying your soul in drought and STRENGTHENING your bones. You will be like a watered garden, like a spring of Water whose waters never fail.
» I decree and declare you will REBUILD THE ANCIENT RUINS, will RAISE UP the age-old FOUNDATIONS, will be called REPAIRER of the Breach, RESTORER of Streets for Dwelling.
» I decree and declare, by the MERCIES of God/Elohim, I PRESENT my body as a LIVING SACRIFICE – HOLY ACCEPTABLE TO GOD – which is my spiritual service. I will not be conformed to this World, but rather am TRANSFORMED by the renewing of my mind, so that I may DISCERN what is the Will of God/Elohim – what is GOOD and ACCEPTABLE and PERFECT.
» I decree and declare I will not think more highly of myself than I ought to think – but will use SOUND JUDGMENT, as God/Elohim has assigned to me a measure of faith.
» I decree and declare I will LOVE without hypocrisy – detesting what is evil holding fast to the good. I am TENDERLY DEVOTED to others in brotherly love and give honor to others. I will not lag in zeal; I will be FERVENT IN SPIRIT, continuing to SERVE the Lord, REJOICING in Hope, ENDURING in distress, PERSISTING in Prayer, contributing to the NEEDS of the Saints/Kedoshim, and extending HOSPITALITY.
» 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!
