DECLARATIONS & DECREES: CAST ASIDE ALL EVIL – DESIRE ONLY TO BE IN GOD’S PRESENCE!
November 5, 2019 – 1 Peter 2:1-5, 11-17; Matthew 7:1-5; Philippians 2:12-16; Ephesians 4:17-32 (WEB)
1 Peter 2:1-5, 11-17: 1 Putting away therefore all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisies, envies, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the Word, that with it you may grow, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious: 4 coming to him, a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, precious. 5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.…
11 Beloved, I beg you as foreigners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 having good behavior among the nations, so in that of which they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they see, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13 Therefore subject yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether to the king, as supreme; 14 or to governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evildoers and for praise to those who do well. 15 For this is the will of God, that by well-doing you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God.
17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
Matthew 7:1-5: 1 “Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged. 2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but don’t consider the beam that is in your own eye? 4 Or how will you tell your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye,’ and behold, the beam is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.
Philippians 2:12-16: 12 So then, my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without complaining and arguing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without defect in the middle of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the world, 16 holding up the word of life, that I may have something to boast in the day of Christ, that I didn’t run in vain nor labor in vain.
Ephesians 4:17-32: 17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their hearts. 19 They, having become callous, gave themselves up to lust, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 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.
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 the Body of Christ/Messiah MUST rid itself of all malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and evil speaking. These are the ways of the World and you are to be SEPARATE and HOLY for God/Elohim is HOLY.
» I decree and declare you FEED YOUR SPIRITUAL MAN, YEARNING for the Word of God/Elohim; in this way you come to KNOW HIS VOICE. Longing for the PURE SPIRITUAL MILK and the BREAD OF LIFE, for by it you will GROW toward SALVATION!
» I decree and declare as you COME to Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua, a Living Stone rejected by men but CHOSEN by God/Elohim and PRECIOUS, you also, as Living Stones, are being BUILT UP as a SPIRITUAL HOUSE – a HOLY PRIESTHOOD to offer up spiritual sacrifices ACCEPTABLE to God/Elohim through Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua!
» I decree and declare we are STRANGERS and SOJOURNERS in this World. We will keep away from the fleshly cravings that war against the soul. As you keep your CONDUCT HONORABLE as you walk among the Unbelievers, then while they speak against you as evildoers, they may—from noticing your good deeds – glorify God/Elohim in the Day of Visitation!
» I decree and declare you will not judge one another; for with the JUDGMENT you JUDGE, YOU WILL BE JUDGED; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. You will not look at the speck in your brother’s eye, without first examining the beam in your own eye. You will not be a hypocrite.
» I decree and declare I will work out my SALVATION with FEAR and trembling. For the One working in me is God/Elohim – both to will and to work for HIS GOOD PLEASURE.
» I decree and declare I will do EVERYTHING without grumbling or arguing, so that I might be blameless and innocent, as a child of God in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation. Among them I will SHINE as a LIGHT in the World, holding fast to the Word of LIFE!
» I decree and declare, in the Lord, you will NO LONGER walk as the pagans do, stumbling around in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the Life of God/Elohim because of ignorance in them due to the hardness of their heart. Since they are past feeling, they have turned themselves over to indecency for the practice of every kind of immorality, with greed for more.
» I decree and declare to walk in Christ/Messiah is to WALK IN TRUTH. You cannot continue in the way of the World. With respect to your former lifestyle, you must LAY ASIDE THE OLD SELF corrupted by its deceitful desires, BE RENEWED by the spirit of your mind, and put on the NEW SELF—created to be like God/Elohim in TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS!
» I decree and declare I will let no harmful word come out of my mouth, but 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 of God/Elohim, by who I am sealed for the Day of REDEMPTION. I will be KIND to others, COMPASSIONATE, FORGIVING others just as God/Elohim in Christ/Messiah also forgave me.
» 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!
