DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I CHOOSE THE BLESSING OF THE LORD!
October 30, 2019 – Deuteronomy 28:1-15; 2 Chronicles 34:1-7, 18-28; Colossians 3:1-17 (WEB)
Deuteronomy 28:1-15: 1 It shall happen, if you shall listen diligently to Yahweh your God’s voice, to observe to do all his commandments which I command you today, that Yahweh your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 All these blessings will come upon you, and overtake you, if you listen to Yahweh your God’s voice. 3 You shall be blessed in the city, and you shall be blessed in the field. 4 You shall be blessed in the fruit of your body, the fruit of your ground, the fruit of your animals, the increase of your livestock, and the young of your flock. 5 Your basket and your kneading trough shall be blessed. 6 You shall be blessed when you come in, and you shall be blessed when you go out. 7 Yahweh will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be struck before you. They will come out against you one way, and will flee before you seven ways. 8 Yahweh will command the blessing on you in your barns, and in all that you put your hand to. He will bless you in the land which Yahweh your God gives you. 9 Yahweh will establish you for a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, and walk in his ways. 10 All the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by Yahweh’s name, and they will be afraid of you. 11 Yahweh will grant you abundant prosperity in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give you. 12 Yahweh will open to you his good treasure in the sky, to give the rain of your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You will lend to many nations, and you will not borrow. 13 Yahweh will make you the head, and not the tail. You will be above only, and you will not be beneath, if you listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God which I command you today, to observe and to do, 14 and shall not turn away from any of the words which I command you today, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
15 But it shall come to pass, if you will not listen to Yahweh your God’s voice, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come on you and overtake you.
2 Chronicles 34:1-7, 18-28: 1 Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. 2 He did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes, and walked in the ways of David his father, and didn’t turn away to the right hand or to the left. 3 For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, the Asherah poles, the engraved images, and the molten images. 4 They broke down the altars of the Baals in his presence; and he cut down the incense altars that were on high above them. He broke the Asherah poles, the engraved images, and the molten images in pieces, made dust of them, and scattered it on the graves of those who had sacrificed to them. 5 He burned the bones of the priests on their altars, and purged Judah and Jerusalem. 6 He did this in the cities of Manasseh, Ephraim, and Simeon, even to Naphtali, around in their ruins. 7 He broke down the altars, and beat the Asherah poles and the engraved images into powder, and cut down all the incense altars throughout all the land of Israel, then returned to Jerusalem.…
18 Shaphan the scribe told the king, saying, “Hilkiah the priest has delivered me a book.” Shaphan read from it to the king.
19 When the king had heard the words of the law, he tore his clothes. 20 The king commanded Hilkiah, Ahikam the son of Shaphan, Abdon the son of Micah, Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king’s servant, saying, 21 “Go inquire of Yahweh for me, and for those who are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found; for great is Yahweh’s wrath that is poured out on us, because our fathers have not kept Yahweh’s word, to do according to all that is written in this book.”
22 So Hilkiah, and they whom the king had commanded, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tokhath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe (now she lived in Jerusalem in the second quarter), and they spoke to her to that effect.
23 She said to them, “Yahweh, the God of Israel says: ‘Tell the man who sent you to me, 24 “Yahweh says, ‘Behold, I will bring evil on this place, and on its inhabitants, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah. 25 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath is poured out on this place, and it will not be quenched.’”’ 26 But to the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of Yahweh, you shall tell him this, ‘Yahweh, the God of Israel says: “About the words which you have heard, 27 because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God, when you heard his words against this place, and against its inhabitants, and have humbled yourself before me, and have torn your clothes, and wept before me, I also have heard you,” says Yahweh. 28 “Behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you will be gathered to your grave in peace. Your eyes won’t see all the evil that I will bring on this place and on its inhabitants.”’”
They brought back word to the king.
Colossians 3:1-17: 1 If then you were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, our life, is revealed, then you will also be revealed with him in glory.
5 Put to death therefore your members which are on the earth: sexual immorality, uncleanness, depraved passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 For these things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience. 7 You also once walked in those, when you lived in them; 8 but now you also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and shameful speaking out of your mouth. 9 Don’t lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his doings, 10 and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his Creator, 11 where there can’t be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondservant, or free person; but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, humility, and perseverance; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, if any man has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so you also do.
14 Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.
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 with all that is within me, I WILL FOLLOW ALMIGHTY GOD/EL SHADDAI, through Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, and do His Will. I will LISTEN OBEDIENTLY to the voice of the Lord my God/Adonai Elohai FOREVER!
» I decree and declare the Lord my God/Adonai Elohai will SET ME ON HIGH – above all nations – as I walk in His Way. The BLESSINGS OF GOD/ELOHIM WILL OVERTAKE ME, because I LISTEN to the VOICE of the Lord my God/Adonai Elohai! I will be blessed in the City and blessed in the field. My Children will be blessed and the produce of my soil and herds will be blessed.
» I decree and declare I am BLESSED as I come in and as I go out. The Lord/Adonai will cause my enemies, who rise up against me, to be struck down before me! They will come out against me from one way and flee before me seven ways. The Lord/Adonai will COMMAND the BLESSING on me in my barns and EVERY UNDERTAKING of my hand, and He will BLESS ME in the Land the Lord my God/Adonai Elohai is giving to me.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai will ESTABLISH us as a HOLY PEOPLE for Himself, if we KEEP the COMMANDMENTS of the Lord our God/Adonai Eloheinu and WALK in His Ways. Then all the Peoples of the Earth will SEE that we are CALLED BY the NAME of the LORD/ADONAI and they will stand in AWE of us. The Lord/Adonai will make us OVERFLOW in PROSPERITY on the Land He has sworn to give us. He will open for us His good Storehouse – the Heavens – to give Rain for our Land in its season and to BLESS all the work of our hand
» I decree and declare you, who walk in the ways of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua Messiah, are not passive. You will not allow false gods and altars to remain in your homes and regions. I speak STRENGTH and BOLDNESS into your lives that the Lord/Adonai will be SEEN IN YOUR MIDST! He is giving you STRATEGY and WISDOM to PURGE the evil things out of your regions and Nations.
» I decree and declare we SORROW and MOURN for the sin in the Land. Congregations and Leaders are no longer following the Law/Torah, the Scriptures of the Lord/Adonai that are JUST and TRUE. GREAT is the WRATH of the Lord/Adonai that will be out poured upon those who do not repent. Yet the REMNANT SEEKS the Heart of God/Elohim!
» I decree and declare you who INQUIRE of the Lord/Adonai with TENDER HEARTS have HUMBLED yourselves before God/Elohim when you heard His prophecy, and wept before Him. He will protect you and you will not see the evil brought upon this place and upon its inhabitants.
» I decree and declare we who are raised with Christ/Messiah, must KEEP SEEKING the things ABOVE – where Christ/Messiah is, sitting at the Right Hand of God/Elohim. We must FOCUS our mind on things above, not on things on the Earth. For we have died, and our life is hidden with Christ/Messiah in God/Elohim.
» I decree and declare I put to death, daily, what is earthly in me for it is idolatry. It is because of such things God’s wrath is coming upon the sons of disobedience. At one time I also walked in these ways, but now, I have set them all aside – anger, rage, malice, slander, and foul language out of my mouth. I will not lie. After all, I have TAKEN OFF the old self with its practices and have put on the new self that is being RENEWED in KNOWLEDGE, according to the image of the One Who created Him.
» I decree and declare, as God’s Chosen People, HOLY and DEARLY LOVED, we CLOTHE ourselves in TENDER COMPASSION, KINDNESS, HUMILITY, GENTLENESS, and PATIENCE – bearing with one another and FORGIVING each other.
» 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!
