DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I AM STRONG IN THE LORD – I WILL NOT STUMBLE AT PERSECUTION!
September 1, 2019 – John 16:1-15, 19-24; Deuteronomy 30:1-20; Matthew 5:9-12 (NASB)
John 16:1-15, 19-24: 1 “These things I have spoken to you so that you may be kept from stumbling. 2 They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. 3 These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me. 4 But these things I have spoken to you, so that when their hour comes, you may remember that I told you of them. These things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 “But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8 And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.…
19 Jesus knew that they wished to question Him, and He said to them, “Are you deliberating together about this, that I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me, and again a little while, and you will see Me’? 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy. 21 Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world. 22 Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.
23 In that day you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. 24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.
Deuteronomy 30:1-20: 1 “So it shall be when all of these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind in all nations where the Lord your God has banished you, 2 and you return to the Lord your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul according to all that I command you today, you and your sons, 3 then the Lord your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on you, and will gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you. 4 If your outcasts are at the ends of the earth, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you back. 5 The Lord your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.
6 “Moreover the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live. 7 The Lord your God will inflict all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. 8 And you shall again obey the Lord, and observe all His commandments which I command you today. 9 Then the Lord your God will prosper you abundantly in all the work of your hand, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your cattle and in the produce of your ground, for the Lord will again rejoice over you for good, just as He rejoiced over your fathers; 10 if you obey the Lord your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law, if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.
11 “For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach. 12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’ 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will cross the sea for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’ 14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.
15 “See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; 16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. 17 But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. 19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, 20 by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Matthew 5:9-12: 9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
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 not stumble for THE LORD/ADONAI IS MY STRENGTH! The Lord/Adonai told us ahead of time so that we would REMEMBER HIS WORDS when their hour comes. I will REMEMBER that the Helper, the Spirit/Ruach reveals the TRUTH and HE IS WITH ME ALWAYS!
» I decree and declare the Spirit/Ruach CONVICTS the World about SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUDGMENT: concerning SIN, because they don’t believe in Jesus Christ/Messiah; concerning RIGHTEOUSNESS , because He returned to the Father and was seen no longer, and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world HAS BEEN JUDGED.
» I decree and declare the Spirit/Ruach of ALL TRUTH GUIDES me. He does not speak on His own, but whatever He hears, He will tell me. And He declares to me the THINGS THAT ARE TO COME! The Spirit/Ruach GLORIFIES Jesus/Yeshua, because He takes from what is His and declares it to us.
» I decree and declare Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah DIED and ROSE AGAIN; therefore, my sorrow was TURNED TO JOY! No one is able to take my JOY away from me! Whatever I ask the Father in Jesus’/Yeshua’s Name, He will give me. As I ASK, I will RECEIVE, so that my JOY will be FULL!
» I decree and declare, as you RETURN to the Lord your God/Adonai Eloheykha and LISTEN to His voice, WITH ALL YOUR HEART and with all your Soul, the Lord your God/Adonai Eloheykha will bring you back from captivity and have COMPASSION on you, and He will RETURN and gather you from all the Peoples where He has scattered you.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is ABLE to bring you into the Land of PROMISE. No distance is too great. As you TURN your Life to Him, He will CIRCUMCISE YOUR HEART and the heart of your descendants – to LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD/ADONAI ELOHEYKHA with all your Heart and with all your Soul, in order that you may LIVE!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai will put curses on our enemies and on those who hate us, who have persecuted us. Then we will return and LISTEN to the Voice of the Lord and do ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS that He has commanded us. He will make us PROSPER in all the work of our Hands – in the fruit of our womb, and the offspring of our livestock and the produce of our soil – for GOOD! We pray for those who have harmed us and persecuted us: may their hearts be open to TURN and REPENT and receive the SALVATION of the Lord/Adonai, Amen!
» I decree and declare I am a PEACEMAKER and am called a Child of God! When I am PERSECUTED for RIGHTEOUSNESS sake, the Kingdom of Heaven is mine! I am BLESSED when people REVILE me and PERSECUTE me and say ALL KINDS OF EVIL against me falsely, on account of Jesus/Yeshua.
» I decree and declare I REJOICE and am GLAD, for my REWARD in Heaven is GREAT! For the same way they PERSECUTED the Prophets who were before me.
» 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!
