DECLARATIONS & DECREES: WALK CIRCUMSPECTLY IN A MANNER WORTHY OF GOD!
August 14, 2019 – 1 Thessalonians 2:11-13; 4:1-8; Ephesians 5:1-20; Colossians 1:9-14 (NASB)
1 Thessalonians 2:11-13: 11 just as you know how we were exhorting and encouraging and imploring each one of you as a father would his own children, 12 so that you would walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-8: 1 Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. 2 For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 and that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you. 7 For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification. 8 So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.
Ephesians 5:1-20: 1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.
3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 ( he fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14 For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;
Colossians 1:9-14: 9 For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.
13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
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 are EXHORTED and encouraged and urged to WALK IN A MANNER WORTHY OF GOD/ELOHIM, Who calls you into His own Kingdom and Glory! I am thankful that when you received the Word of God/Elohim, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it truly is – the Word of God/Elohim, which does its work in you who BELIEVE!
» I decree and declare I will continue PROGRESSING in the way I ought to walk and PLEASE God. For I know what INSTRUCTIONS I have received from my teachers through the Lord Jesus/Adonai Yeshua. For this is the WILL of GOD/ELOHIM – my sanctification: to abstain from sexual immorality; to know how to gain control over my own body in HOLINESS and HONOR – not in the passion of lust.
» I decree and declare as Children of God/Elohim, you will not overstep your brother nor take advantage of him, for the Lord/Adonai is the AVENGER in all things, as you have been told before and solemnly warned. The Lord/Adonai has not called us to impurity, but in HOLINESS.
» I decree and declare you are to be IMITATORS of God/Elohim, as dearly loved Children; and walking in LOVE, just as Christ/Messiah also loved us and gave Himself up for us as an OFFERING and SACRIFICE to God for a fragrant aroma.
» I decree and declare you WILL NOT ALLOW obscene, coarse, and stupid talk be found among you. Know for certain that no immoral, indecent, or greedy person—who is really an idol worshipper at heart—has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ/Messiah and God/Elohim. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s judgment comes on the children of disobedience. Therefore do not be partners with them.
» I decree and declare once you were in darkness, but NOW in Union with the Lord/Adonai YOU ARE LIGHT! Walk as Children of LIGHT, for the fruit of LIGHT is in all goodness and RIGHTEOUSNESS and TRUTH! Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord!
» I decree and declare I will not be foolish or reckless, as those in the World, but rather I am FILLED with the Spirit/Ruach, speaking in Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, SINGING and making music in my Heart to the Lord – ALWAYS GIVING THANKS to God the Father/Elohim Abba, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua the Messiah!
» I decree and declare that I have not stopped PRAYING for you! I keep asking God/Elohim that you might be FILLED with all KNOWLEDGE of His Will in ALL WISDOM and Spiritual UNDERSTANDING—to walk in a manner WORTHY of the Lord, to PLEASE Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the KNOWLEDGE of God/Elohim!
» I decree and declare that you will be STRENGTHENED with all POWER that comes from God’s/Elohim’s GLORIOUS MIGHT, for you to have all kinds of PATIENCE and STEADFASTNESS. With JOY, I give THANKS to the Father/Abba, Who QUALIFIED you to share in the INHERITANCE of the Saints/Kedoshim in the LIGHT. In Christ/Messiah we have REDEMPTION—the release of sins!
» 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!
