DECLARATIONS & DECREES: BEWARE OF APPEARANCES – YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUIT!
November 7, 2019 – 2 Corinthians 11:12-15; Matthew 23:23-36; Hebrews 4:11-13; Psalm 119:97-120; Luke 6:43-45 (WEB)
2 Corinthians 11:12-15: 12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from those who desire an occasion, that in which they boast, they may be found even as we. 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as Christ’s apostles. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is no great thing therefore if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
Matthew 23:23-36: 23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faith. But you ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone. 24 You blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel!
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and unrighteousness. 26 You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the platter, that its outside may become clean also.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitened tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men’s bones and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we wouldn’t have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Therefore you testify to yourselves that you are children of those who killed the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you offspring of vipers, how will you escape the judgment of Gehenna? 34 Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom you killed between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Most certainly I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.
Hebrews 4:11-13: 11 Let’s therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
Psalm 119:97-120: 97 How I love your law! It is my meditation all day. 98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for your commandments are always with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the aged, because I have kept your precepts. 101 I have kept my feet from every evil way, that I might observe your word. 102 I have not turned away from your ordinances, for you have taught me. 103 How sweet are your promises to my taste, more than honey to my mouth! 104 Through your precepts, I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path. 106 I have sworn, and have confirmed it, that I will obey your righteous ordinances. 107 I am afflicted very much. Revive me, Yahweh, according to your word. 108 Accept, I beg you, the willing offerings of my mouth. Yahweh, teach me your ordinances. 109 My soul is continually in my hand, yet I won’t forget your law. 110 The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I haven’t gone astray from your precepts. 111 I have taken your testimonies as a heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart. 112 I have set my heart to perform your statutes forever, even to the end.
113 I hate double-minded men, but I love your law. 114 You are my hiding place and my shield. I hope in your word. 115 Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God. 116 Uphold me according to your word, that I may live. Let me not be ashamed of my hope. 117 Hold me up, and I will be safe, and will have respect for your statutes continually. 118 You reject all those who stray from your statutes, for their deceit is in vain. 119 You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross. Therefore I love your testimonies. 120 My flesh trembles for fear of you. I am afraid of your judgments.
Luke 6:43-45: 43 For there is no good tree that produces rotten fruit; nor again a rotten tree that produces good fruit. 44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For people don’t gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings out that which is good, and the evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings out that which is evil, for out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks.
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 you are receiving INCREASED DISCERNMENT to know those who are false apostles, deceitful workers masquerading as Christ’s/Messiah’s apostles. Know that even satan masquerades as an angel of light. It is no great thing therefore if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be according to their deeds.
» I decree and declare BEWARE of the hypocrites who are so precise in obeying CHURCH or SYNAGOGUE DOCTRINE, but fail to show LOVE. They have neglected the weightier matters of God’s Law/Torah – JUSTICE and MERCY and FAITHFULNESS!
» I decree and declare WOE to the Bible Scholars, HYPOCRITES! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but INSIDE YOU ARE FULL OF GREED and UNCONTROLLED DESIRE! You are blind! First clean the inside of the cup and dish so that the outside may become clean as well.
» I decree and declare there are many HYPOCRITES who are like whitewashed tombs, which LOOK BEAUTIFUL on the outside but inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean. In the same way they APPEAR RIGHTEOUS to men on the outside but are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
» I decree and declare Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah has sent YOU, HIS DISCIPLES, into the world to preach the GOSPEL that men might turn from their evil ways and REPENT, receiving SALVATION from the Hand of God.
» I decree and declare I am making every EFFORT to enter that REST, so that I will not fall through a pattern of disobedience. For the Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE and SHARPER than any Two-Edged Sword – piercing right trough to a SEPARATION of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to JUDGE the THOUGHTS and INTENTIONS of the Heart. No creature is HIDDEN from God/Elohim, but all are naked and exposed to the Eyes of Him to Whom we MUST GIVE ACCOUNT!
» I decree and declare Lord/Adonai, HOW I LOVE YOUR LAW/TORAH – it is my MEDITATION all day long. Your Commandments make me wiser than my enemies – for they are MINE FOREVER! I kept my feet from every evil way, IN ORDER TO FOLLOW YOUR WORD!
» I decree and declare from the Word of God/Elohim I gain DISCERNMENT, therefore I hate every false way. His Word is a LAMP unto my feet and a LIGHT to my Path. I have sworn and confirmed to observe His RIGHTEOUS RULINGS.
» I decree and declare I turn my Heart to do Your Decrees, Lord/Adonai, FOREVER TO THE VERY END!
» I decree and declare do not be fooled by appearances, but rather EVALUATE the teachers and leaders BY THEIR FRUIT! For there is no good tree that produces rotten fruit, nor again does a rotten tree produce good fruit. Out of the good treasure of his heart the good man brings forth good, and out of evil the evil man brings froth evil. For from the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.
» 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!
