DECLARATIONS & DECREES: CHOOSE, TODAY, WHOM YOU WILL SERVE – I WILL SERVE THE LORD!
September 21, 2019 – Joshua 24:14-24; 1 Corinthians 15:1-12, 20-28; Romans 3:21-26 (WEB)
Joshua 24:14-24: 14 “Now therefore fear Yahweh, and serve him in sincerity and in truth. Put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River, in Egypt; and serve Yahweh. 15 If it seems evil to you to serve Yahweh, choose today whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve Yahweh.”
16 The people answered, “Far be it from us that we should forsake Yahweh, to serve other gods; 17 for it is Yahweh our God who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way in which we went, and among all the peoples through the middle of whom we passed. 18 Yahweh drove out from before us all the peoples, even the Amorites who lived in the land. Therefore we also will serve Yahweh; for he is our God.”
19 Joshua said to the people, “You can’t serve Yahweh, for he is a holy God. He is a jealous God. He will not forgive your disobedience nor your sins. 20 If you forsake Yahweh, and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you evil, and consume you, after he has done you good.”
21 The people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve Yahweh.” 22 Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen Yahweh yourselves, to serve him.”
They said, “We are witnesses.”
23 “Now therefore put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to Yahweh, the God of Israel.”
24 The people said to Joshua, “We will serve Yahweh our God, and we will listen to his voice.”
1 Corinthians 15:1-12, 20-28: 1 Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, who is not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am. His grace which was given to me was not futile, but I worked more than all of them; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 11 Whether then it is I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
12 Now if Christ is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?…
20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruit of those who are asleep. 21 For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s, at his coming. 24 Then the end comes, when he will deliver up the Kingdom to God, even the Father, when he will have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 27 For, “He put all things in subjection under his feet.” [Psalm 8:6] But when he says, “All things are put in subjection”, it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him. 28 When all things have been subjected to him, then the Son will also himself be subjected to him who subjected all things to him, that God may be all in all.
Romans 3:21-26: 21 But now apart from the law, a righteousness of God has been revealed, being testified by the law and the prophets; 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all and on all those who believe. For there is no distinction, 23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God sent to be an atoning sacrifice, through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness through the passing over of prior sins, in God’s forbearance; 26 to demonstrate his righteousness at this present time; that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him who has faith in Jesus.
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 FEAR the Lord/Adonai and worship Him in SINCERITY and in TRUTH! I have rid my house of ungodly articles from prior days and those things that have been gifts. I will decline unholy gifts from this time on.
» I decree and declare to all who call yourselves Children of God/Elohim, Believers in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, CHOOSE FOR YOURSELVES TODAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE! You cannot hold onto things of your former life – embracing them – and say you LOVE the Lord/Adonai also. May you declare, “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord/Adonai to worship other gods!”
» I decree and declare I have received the Good News and take my STAND on it, for by it I am being SAVED as I HOLD FIRM to the Word of Truth: Christ/Messiah died for my sins according to the Scriptures, and He appeared to Peter, then to the Twelve; then He appeared to over five hundred brothers and sisters at one time!
» I decree and declare Christ/Messiah is RAISED FROM THE DEAD, the FIRSTFRUITS of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD has come through a man; for as in Adam all die, so also in Christ/Messiah all will be made alive!
» I decree and declare Christ/Messiah is the First Fruits, then, at His Coming, those who BELONG TO CHRIST/MESSIAH, then in the End, when He hands over the Kingdom to God/Elohim the Father after He has destroyed all rule and all authority and power. For He must REIGN until He has put all His enemies under His feet!
» I decree and declare the last enemy to be destroyed is death. For God/Elohim has put ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDERNEATH HIS FEET. Now when all things become subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also become subject to the One Who put all things under Him, so that God/Elohim may be ALL IN ALL!
» I decree and declare the RIGHTEOUSNESS apart from the Law has been revealed, namely the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God/Elohim through putting TRUST in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, to all who KEEP ON TRUSTING!
» I decree and declare we have all sinned and fall short of the GLORY OF GOD. We are set RIGHT as a GIFT OF HIS GRACE, through the REDEMPTION that is in Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua. God/Elohim set for Jesus/Yeshua as an ATONEMENT, through faith in His Blood, to show His RIGHTEOUSNESS in passing over sins already committed.
» I decree and declare through God’s/Elohim’s FORBEARANCE, He demonstrates His RIGHTEOUSNESS at the Present time – that He Himself is JUST and also the JUSTIFIER of the one who puts his TRUST in Jesus/Yeshua!
» 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!
