DECLARATIONS & DECREES: CHAZAK! COURAGE!
October 16, 2019 – 2 Chronicles 32:7-11, 16-22; Deuteronomy 31:3-8; Psalm 27:1-6, 13-14; Acts 4:1-4, 8-22 (WEB)
2 Chronicles 32:7-11, 16-22: 7 “Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid or dismayed because of the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude who is with him; for there is a greater one with us than with him. 8 An arm of flesh is with him, but Yahweh our God is with us to help us and to fight our battles.” The people rested themselves on the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.
9 After this, Sennacherib king of Assyria sent his servants to Jerusalem, (now he was before Lachish, and all his power with him), to Hezekiah king of Judah, and to all Judah who were at Jerusalem, saying, 10 Sennacherib king of Assyria says, “In whom do you trust, that you remain under siege in Jerusalem? 11 Doesn’t Hezekiah persuade you, to give you over to die by famine and by thirst, saying, ‘Yahweh our God will deliver us out of the hand of the king of Assyria?’…
16 His servants spoke yet more against Yahweh God, and against his servant Hezekiah. 17 He also wrote letters insulting Yahweh, the God of Israel, and speaking against him, saying, “As the gods of the nations of the lands, which have not delivered their people out of my hand, so shall the God of Hezekiah not deliver his people out of my hand.” 18 They called out with a loud voice in the Jews’ language to the people of Jerusalem who were on the wall, to frighten them, and to trouble them; that they might take the city. 19 They spoke of the God of Jerusalem as of the gods of the peoples of the earth, which are the work of men’s hands.
20 Hezekiah the king and Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz, prayed because of this, and cried to heaven.
21 Yahweh sent an angel, who cut off all the mighty men of valor, and the leaders and captains, in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. When he had come into the house of his god, those who came out of his own body killed him there with the sword. 22 Thus Yahweh saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria and from the hand of all others, and guided them on every side.
Deuteronomy 31:3-8: 3 Yahweh your God himself will go over before you. He will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall dispossess them. Joshua will go over before you, as Yahweh has spoken. 4 Yahweh will do to them as he did to Sihon and to Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when he destroyed them. 5 Yahweh will deliver them up before you, and you shall do to them according to all the commandment which I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid or scared of them; for Yahweh your God himself is who goes with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you.”
7 Moses called to Joshua, and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land which Yahweh has sworn to their fathers to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it. 8 Yahweh himself is who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be discouraged.”
Psalm 27:1-6, 13-14: 1 Yahweh is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? Yahweh is the strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evildoers came at me to eat up my flesh, even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear. Though war should rise against me, even then I will be confident. 4 One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after: that I may dwell in Yahweh’s house all the days of my life, to see Yahweh’s beauty, and to inquire in his temple. 5 For in the day of trouble, he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the secret place of his tabernacle, he will hide me. He will lift me up on a rock. 6 Now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me. I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh.…
13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living. 14 Wait for Yahweh. Be strong, and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for Yahweh.
Acts 4:1-4, 8-22: 1 As they spoke to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came to them, 2 being upset because they taught the people and proclaimed in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 They laid hands on them, and put them in custody until the next day, for it was now evening. 4 But many of those who heard the word believed, and the number of the men came to be about five thousand.…
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “You rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9 if we are examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed, 10 may it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, this man stands here before you whole in him. 11 He is ‘the stone which was regarded as worthless by you, the builders, which has become the head of the corner.’ [Psalm 118:22] 12 There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven that is given among men, by which we must be saved!”
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled. They recognized that they had been with Jesus. 14 Seeing the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? Because indeed a notable miracle has been done through them, as can be plainly seen by all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we can’t deny it. 17 But so that this spreads no further among the people, let’s threaten them, that from now on they don’t speak to anyone in this name.” 18 They called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
19 But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, judge for yourselves, 20 for we can’t help telling the things which we saw and heard.”
21 When they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people; for everyone glorified God for that which was done. 22 For the man on whom this miracle of healing was performed was more than forty years old.
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 walk in COURAGE! I am not afraid nor dismayed by those who come against me, no matter their numbers – for I have more with me than those who are with them. Those against me rely on the arm of flesh, but the Lord God/Adonai Eloheinu is with me to help me and to fight my battles!
» I decree and declare those who criticize our faith and are boisterous and haughty, belittling the POWER of our God/Elohim, will come FACE TO FACE WITH GOD ALMIGHTY/EL SHADDAI. As we SEEK HIM, He will DELIVER US. He will send an Angel who will annihilate every mighty Warrior, Commander and Officer in the camp of the enemy. They will withdraw in disgrace to their own land.
» I decree and declare the Lord your God/Adonai Eloheykha goes before you. He will destroy your enemies and YOU WILL DISPOSSESS them. The Lord/Adonai will make a WAY and GUIDE you you into your Promised Land!
» I decree and declare you are COURAGEOUS! You will not be afraid or tremble before your enemies, for the Lord your God/Adonai Eloheykha is the One Who GOES WITH YOU!

He will not fail you nor abandon you. You will not fear nor be discouraged!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is my LIGHT and my SALVATION – there is none whom I will fear! The Lord/Adonai is my STRONGHOLD – there is none whom I will dread. When evildoers approach me to devour me – my adversaries and my foes – they stumble and fall. Though an army camp besieges me, MY HEART DOES NOT FEAR. Though war breaks out against me, even then I WILL BE CONFIDENT!

Then my Head will be HIGH ABOVE my enemies. In His Tabernacle I offer SACRIFICES with SHOUTS OF JOY. I will SING PRAISES to the Lord/Adonai!
» I decree and declare you will not worry when those of the World, the public and the governing powers, are angry that you are SHARING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST JESUS/MESSIAH YESHUA. Though they may put you in jail, many who HEAR THE MESSAGE WILL BELIEVE! Thousands will come to believe the Savior because of your Words.
» I decree and declare it is by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth/Yeshua HaMashiach HaNatzrati that the People are MADE WHOLE! It is by His Spirit within us that we will LAY OUR HANDS on the Sick, the Lame and the Dead, and they will be made whole; they will be raised. There is SALVATION in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to Mankind by which we must be saved!
» I decree and declare when those in authority tell you not to speak anymore to anyone in the name of Christ/Messiah, we must respond, “Whether it right in the sight of God/Elohim to listen to you rather than to God/Elohim, you decide. For WE CANNOT STOP SPEAKING ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE SEEN AND HEARD.”
» 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!
