DECLARATIONS & DECREES: BOLDNESS TO MOVE THROUGH THE ENEMY’S CAMP!
November 16, 2019 – 1 Kings 18:20-26, 30-40; Proverbs 28:1-10; 2 Corinthians 10:1-6, 17; 11:10-14, 21-33; 13:1-10 (WEB)
1 Kings 18:20-26, 30-40: 20 So Ahab sent to all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together to Mount Carmel. 21 Elijah came near to all the people, and said, “How long will you waver between the two sides? If Yahweh is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.”
The people didn’t say a word.
22 Then Elijah said to the people, “I, even I only, am left as a prophet of Yahweh; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred fifty men. 23 Let them therefore give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under; and I will dress the other bull, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under it. 24 You call on the name of your god, and I will call on Yahweh’s name. The God who answers by fire, let him be God.”
All the people answered, “What you say is good.”
25 Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one bull for yourselves, and dress it first; for you are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it.”
26 They took the bull which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, “Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice, and nobody answered. They leaped about the altar which was made.
Proverbs 28:1-10: 1 The wicked flee when no one pursues; but the righteous are as bold as a lion. 2 In rebellion, a land has many rulers, but order is maintained by a man of understanding and knowledge. 3 A needy man who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain which leaves no crops. 4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked; but those who keep the law contend with them. 5 Evil men don’t understand justice; but those who seek Yahweh understand it fully. 6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich. 7 Whoever keeps the law is a wise son; but he who is a companion of gluttons shames his father. 8 He who increases his wealth by excessive interest gathers it for one who has pity on the poor. 9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. 10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, he will fall into his own trap; but the blameless will inherit good.
2 Corinthians 10:1-6, 17: 1 Now I Paul, myself, entreat you by the humility and gentleness of Christ, I who in your presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you. 2 Yes, I beg you that I may not, when present, show courage with the confidence with which I intend to be bold against some, who consider us to be walking according to the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don’t wage war according to the flesh; 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds, 5 throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience when your obedience is made full.…
17 But “he who boasts, let him boast in the Lord.” [Jeremiah 9:24]
2 Corinthians 11:10-14, 21-33: 10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no one will stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia. 11 Why? Because I don’t love you? God knows. 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.…
21 I speak by way of disparagement, as though we had been weak. Yet in whatever way anyone is bold (I speak in foolishness), I am bold also. 22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the offspring of Abraham? So am I. 23 Are they servants of Christ? (I speak as one beside himself.) I am more so: in labors more abundantly, in prisons more abundantly, in stripes above measure, and in deaths often. 24 Five times I received forty stripes minus one from the Jews. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I suffered shipwreck. I have been a night and a day in the deep. 26 I have been in travels often, perils of rivers, perils of robbers, perils from my countrymen, perils from the Gentiles, perils in the city, perils in the wilderness, perils in the sea, perils among false brothers; 27 in labor and travail, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, and in cold and nakedness.
28 Besides those things that are outside, there is that which presses on me daily: anxiety for all the assemblies. 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is caused to stumble, and I don’t burn with indignation? 30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that concern my weakness. 31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, he who is blessed forever more, knows that I don’t lie. 32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas guarded the Damascenes’ city, desiring to arrest me. 33 I was let down in a basket through a window by the wall, and escaped his hands.
2 Corinthians 13:1-10: 1 This is the third time I am coming to you. “At the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” [Deuteronomy 19:15] 2 I have said beforehand, and I do say beforehand, as when I was present the second time, so now, being absent, I write to those who have sinned before now, and to all the rest, that, if I come again, I will not spare; 3 seeing that you seek a proof of Christ who speaks in me; who toward you is not weak, but is powerful in you. 4 For he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we will live with him through the power of God toward you. 5 Examine your own selves, whether you are in the faith. Test your own selves. Or don’t you know about your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. 6 But I hope that you will know that we aren’t disqualified.
7 Now I pray to God that you do no evil; not that we may appear approved, but that you may do that which is honorable, though we are as reprobate. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we rejoice when we are weak and you are strong. We also pray for this: your becoming perfect. 10 For this cause I write these things while absent, that I may not deal sharply when present, according to the authority which the Lord gave me for building up, and not for tearing down.
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 IN OBEDIENCE Elijah went to Ahab; and IN OBEDIENCE Elijah went to Mount Carmel and called the Children of Israel and the Prophets of Baal. As Elijah MOVED in OBEDIENCE he was filled with BOLDNESS to carry out the Lord’s/Adonai’s Command. As you move in OBEDIENCE, the Lord/Adonai FILLS YOU WITH HIS HOLY BOLDNESS!
» I decree and declare, as the Lord/Adonai LEADS, YOU WILL CHALLENGE the spirits of darkness working in your midst. Because you have stepped out in FAITH and BOLDNESS, in the places near you, the Lord/Adonai is SENDING YOU TO THE NATIONS, to places many will avoid because of FEAR. But YOU DO NOT FEAR; YOU MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH, as the Lord DIRECTS. You say in your Heart, “Here I am Lord, SEND ME!” (Isaiah 6:8)
» I decree and declare you will WALK in BOLDNESS that the VOICE of God/Elohim will be heard on the Earth and the People will KNOW HE, THE LORD/ADONAI, IS GOD/ELOHIM!
» I decree and declare the RIGHTEOUS of the Lord/Adonai are as BOLD as a Lion! A Country that has a Man of DISCERNMENT and KNOWLEDGE in leadership MAINTAINS ORDER! We PRAISE You Lord God/Adonai Elohim for leading this Nation.
» I decree and declare you who KNOW and OBEY the Scriptures STIR UP the wicked in the Land. You do not praise them but bring them to accountability. Evil men do not understand Justice, but those who SEEK the Lord/Adonai UNDERSTAND IT FULLY!
» I decree and declare BETTER is the Poor who walks in INTEGRITY than the Rich whose ways are crooked. He who KEEPS God’s Word is a discerning Child!
» I decree and declare those who increase their WEALTH by exorbitant interest, GATHERS IT FOR ONE KINDER to the Poor! The Blameless will INHERIT GOOD! We praise the Lord/Adonai and CALL into our accounts the WEALTH of the wicked that it may be used for the Work of the Kingdom as the Lord/Adonai directs.
» I decree and declare, though we walk in the flesh, WE DO NOT WAGE WAR ACCORDING TO THE FLESH. For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly but POWERFUL through God/Elohim for the TEARING DOWN OF SPIRITUAL STRONGHOLDS. We are tearing down false arguments and every high-minded thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God/Elohim. We are taking every thought captive to the OBEDIENCE of Christ/Messiah. It is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the ONE WHOM THE LORD COMMENDS!
» I decree and declare to the Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua Messiah: YOU WILL NOT KEEP SILENT! You continue to speak forth the TRUTH of God’s Word that you may cut off the opportunity from those who want an opportunity to boast in what they call the truth but is a lie. For they are false apostles, deceitful workers masquerading as Christ’s/Messiah’s apostles. And no wonder, for 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 that there will be TRIALS and PERSECUTIONS as you fulfill the CALL of God on your life and for this generation. If you must boast, boast in your weakness and in the STRENGTH of the Lord/Adonai. It is by His LOVE, PEACE and STRENGTH that you continue the race until the end.
» I decree and declare that Christ/Messiah is speaking through me. He is not weak toward you, but POWERFUL among you. For He was crucified in weakness, yet HE LIVES through the POWER of God/Elohim For, we also are weak in Him, yet we shall LIVE with Him by God’s/Elohim’s POWER toward you! TEST YOURSELVES, to see whether you are in the Faith. EXAMINE YOURSELVES!
» 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!
