DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GROANINGS WILL COME FORTH BECAUSE OF GOD’S REFINING FIRE—HIS PROMISE & HIS GRACE!
October 9, 2019 – Romans 8:18-30; 2 Corinthians 5:1-9; Malachi 3:1-6;John 15:1-4; James 1:2-18 (WEB)
Romans 8:18-30: 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us. 19 For the creation waits with eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of decay into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. 23 Not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? 25 But if we hope for that which we don’t see, we wait for it with patience.
26 In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses, for we don’t know how to pray as we ought. But the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which can’t be uttered. 27 He who searches the hearts knows what is on the Spirit’s mind, because he makes intercession for the saints according to God.
28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 Whom he predestined, those he also called. Whom he called, those he also justified. Whom he justified, those he also glorified.
2 Corinthians 5:1-9: 1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. 2 For most certainly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, 3 if indeed being clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened, not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 We are courageous, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him.
Malachi 3:1-6: 1 “Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, he comes!” says Yahweh of Armies. 2 “But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like launderers’ soap; 3 and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness. 4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasant to Yahweh, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years. 5 I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the perjurers, and against those who oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and who deprive the foreigner of justice, and don’t fear me,” says Yahweh of Armies. 6 “For I, Yahweh, don’t change; therefore you, sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
John 15:1-4: 1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer. 2 Every branch in me that doesn’t bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.
James 1:2-18: 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For that man shouldn’t think that he will receive anything from the Lord. 8 He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
9 But let the brother in humble circumstances glory in his high position; 10 and the rich, in that he is made humble, because like the flower in the grass, he will pass away. 11 For the sun arises with the scorching wind and withers the grass, and the flower in it falls, and the beauty of its appearance perishes. So the rich man will also fade away in his pursuits.
12 Blessed is a person who endures temptation, for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to those who love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God can’t be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed. 15 Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin. The sin, when it is full grown, produces death. 16 Don’t be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow. 18 Of his own will he gave birth to us by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
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 that my SUFFERINGS of this Present Time are not worthy to be compared with the COMING GLORY to be REVEALED to us. The Creation EAGERLY AWAITS the REVELATION of the Sons of God/Elohim. For the Creation was subjected to futility – not willingly but because of the One Who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be SET FREE from bondage to decay into the GLORIOUS FREEDOM of the Children of God!
» I decree and declare the Whole CREATION GROANS together and suffers birth pains until now – and not only Creation, but even ourselves. We ourselves, who have the FIRSTFRUITS of the Spirit/Ruach, GROAN inwardly as we EAGERLY WAIT FOR ADOPTION – the redemption of our body.
» I decree and declare we HOPE for what we do not see, EAGERLY WAITING for it with PERSEVERANCE. In the same way, the Spirit/Ruach HELPS IN OUR WEAKNESS. For we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit/Ruach Himself INTERCEDES for us with GROANS TOO DEEP FOR WORDS. The Spirit/Ruach SEARCHES the Hearts and intercedes for the Saints ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD!
» I decree and declare I GROAN, longing to be CLOTHED with my Heavenly Dwelling; for I have a building from God/Elohim – a home not made with human hands, Eternal in the Heavens! For I GROAN while I am in this tent – burdened because I don’t want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal may be SWALLOWED UP BY LIFE.
» I decree and declare God/Elohim PREPARED US for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit/Ruach as a PLEDGE. Therefore, we are ALWAYS CONFIDENT and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent form the Lord/Adonai. For WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT. We are CONFIDENT and prefer rather to be absent from the body and at home with the Lord. So, whether at home or absent, WE MAKE IT OUR AIM TO BE PLEASING TO HIM!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai, at His coming will be like a REFINER’S FIRE, and like soap for cleaning raw wool. He will sit as a smelter or a PURIFIER of Silver, and HE WILL CLEANSE THE SONS OF LEVI, and PURIFY them like Gold or Silver. As the Levites, we are PRIESTS before the Lord our God/Adonai Eloheinu; He is PURIFYING each of us that we may PRESENT AN OFFERING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai will DRAW NEAR to His People in Judgment, and He will be swift witness against those who have oppressed and mislead – those who do not fear Him. He will PROTECT the Children of Jacob, so that you are not consumed.
» I decree and declare every Branch that bears fruit will be trimmed so that it may bear MORE FRUIT. The branches that do not bear will be taken away. You are already CLEAN because of the Word Jesus/Yeshua has spoken to you. ABIDE IN HIM, and He will abide in you. The Branch cannot itself produce Fruit unless it ABIDES in the Vine, Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» I decree and declare trials and the TESTING of your FAITH PRODUCES ENDURANCE! So, ENDURANCE will have its perfect work, so that you will be PERFECT and COMPLETE, lacking in nothing. If you lack WISDOM, ask of God/Elohim, Who GIVES TO ALL without hesitation and without reproach, and it will be given to you.
» I decree and declare as we ENDURE TESTING, we are to be HAPPY, because when we have STOOD THE TEST, we will RECEIVE the CROWN of LIFE, which the Lord PROMISED to those who LOVE Him.
» 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!
