DECLARATIONS & DECREES: PUT OFF ALL CORRUPTION – WALK IN TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS & HOLINESS!
September 19, 2019 – Ephesians 4:25-32; Hebrews 12:1-15; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 (WEB)
Ephesians 4:20-32: 20 But you didn’t learn Christ that way, 21 if indeed you heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.
25 Therefore putting away falsehood, speak truth each one with his neighbor. For we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and don’t sin.” [Psalm 4:4] Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 and don’t give place to the devil. 28 Let him who stole steal no more; but rather let him labor, producing with his hands something that is good, that he may have something to give to him who has need. 29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but only what is good for building others up as the need may be, that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 Don’t grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outcry, and slander be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you.
Hebrews 12:1-15: 1 Therefore let’s also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s run with perseverance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider him who has endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, that you don’t grow weary, fainting in your souls. 4 You have not yet resisted to blood, striving against sin. 5 You have forgotten the exhortation which reasons with you as with children, “My son, don’t take lightly the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by him; 6 for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines, and chastises every son whom he receives.” [Proverbs 3:11-12]
7 It is for discipline that you endure. God deals with you as with children, for what son is there whom his father doesn’t discipline? 8 But if you are without discipline, of which all have been made partakers, then you are illegitimate, and not children. 9 Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they indeed, for a few days, punished us as seemed good to them; but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness. 11 All chastening seems for the present to be not joyous but grievous; yet afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. 12 Therefore lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees, [Isaiah 35:3] 13 and make straight paths for your feet, [Proverbs 4:26] so what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
14 Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man will see the Lord, 15 looking carefully lest there be any man who falls short of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and many be defiled by it,
1 Thessalonians 4:1-12: 1 Finally then, brothers, we beg and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, that you abound more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God: your sanctification, that you abstain from sexual immorality, 4 that each one of you know how to control his own body in sanctification and honor, 5 not in the passion of lust, even as the Gentiles who don’t know God, 6 that no one should take advantage of and wrong a brother or sister in this matter; because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as also we forewarned you and testified. 7 For God called us not for uncleanness, but in sanctification. 8 Therefore he who rejects this doesn’t reject man, but God, who has also given his Holy Spirit to you.
9 But concerning brotherly love, you have no need that one write to you. For you yourselves are taught by God to love one another, 10 for indeed you do it toward all the brothers who are in all Macedonia. But we exhort you, brothers, that you abound more and more; 11 and that you make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, even as we instructed you; 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and may have need of nothing.
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 have laid aside the old self corrupted by its deceitful desires, and am RENEWED in the spirit of my mind, and put on the NEW SELF – CREATED to be LIKE GOD in TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS!
» I decree and declare I will not lie, but will SPEAK TRUTH with my neighbor, my brothers and sisters, for we are MEMBERS of one another. If I am angry, I will not sin. I will not let the Sun go down on my anger; I WILL NOT GIVE the devil a FOOTHOLD.
» I decree and declare no harmful word will come out of my mouth, rather ONLY WHAT IS BENEFICIAL for BUILDING OTHERS UP according to the need, so that it gives GRACE to those who hear it. I will not grieve the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh, by Whom I was SEALED for the Day of Redemption.
» I decree and declare I will GET RID OF ALL BITTERNESS and RAGE and ANGER and QUARRELING and SLANDER, along with ALL MALICE. Rather, I will be KIND TO ALL: COMPASSIONATE, FORGIVING OTHERS, just as God/Elohim in Christ/Messiah also FORGAVE me!
» I decree and declare there is a GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES surrounding us, so we will rid ourselves of every weight and entangling sin. I will RUN WITH ENDURANCE the Race set before me, FOCUSING on Jesus/Yeshua, the initiator and perfecter of FAITH. For the JOY set before Him, He endured the Cross, disregarding its shame and He has taken His seat at the Right Hand of the Throne of God/Elohim.
» I decree and declare I WILL NOT GROW WEARY, NOR LOSE HEART! I will not take lightly the DISCIPLINE of the Lord/Adonai nor lose Heart when I am corrected by Him, because He DISCIPLINES the Ones He LOVES and punishes every son He accepts. It is for discipline that I endure. God is treating me as His Child. If you are without discipline then you are illegitimate and not sons.
» I decree and declare DISCIPLINE seems painful at the moment – not joyful, but later it yields the PEACEFUL FRUIT of RIGHTEOUSNESS to those who have been TRAINED by it. Therefore, STRENGTHEN the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble. Make straight paths for your feet.
» I decree and declare I PURSUE PEACE/SHALOM with Everyone, and the HOLINESS without which no one will see the Lord/Adonai. I will Encourage all that they will not fall short of the GRACE of God, and not allow any bitter root to spring up and cause trouble, for by it many would be defiled.
» I decree and declare I WILL WALK IN A WAY PLEASING TO GOD! For this is the Will of God for my sanctification; I have control over my actions and my treatment of others. I will not offend but HONOR my brothers and sisters in the Lord. For God did not call me to impurity, but in HOLINESS.
» 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!
