DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I WILL LISTEN, OBEY, & CONTINUE TO LISTEN!
November 18, 2019 – Genesis 22:2-14; 1 Kings 17:1-9; 2 Kings 3:11-27; 1 Corinthians 13:9-12; Isaiah 55:8-11 (WEB)
Genesis 22:2-14 : 2 He said, “Now take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go into the land of Moriah. Offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you of.”
3 Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his donkey; and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son. He split the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went to the place of which God had told him. 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place far off. 5 Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I will go over there. We will worship, and come back to you.” 6 Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. He took in his hand the fire and the knife. They both went together. 7 Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, “My father?”
He said, “Here I am, my son.”
He said, “Here is the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”
8 Abraham said, “God will provide himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they both went together. 9 They came to the place which God had told him of. Abraham built the altar there, and laid the wood in order, bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, on the wood. 10 Abraham stretched out his hand, and took the knife to kill his son.
11 Yahweh’s angel called to him out of the sky, and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”
He said, “Here I am.”
12 He said, “Don’t lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him. For now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.”
13 Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and saw that behind him was a ram caught in the thicket by his horns. Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 Abraham called the name of that place “Yahweh Will Provide”. As it is said to this day, “On Yahweh’s mountain, it will be provided.”
1 Kings 17:1-9: 1 Elijah the Tishbite, who was one of the settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As Yahweh, the God of Israel, lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.”
2 Then Yahweh’s word came to him, saying, 3 “Go away from here, turn eastward, and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, that is before the Jordan. 4 You shall drink from the brook. I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” 5 So he went and did according to Yahweh’s word; for he went and lived by the brook Cherith that is before the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. 7 After a while, the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.
8 Yahweh’s word came to him, saying, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.”
2 Kings 3:11-27: 11 But Jehoshaphat said, “Isn’t there a prophet of Yahweh here, that we may inquire of Yahweh by him?”
One of the king of Israel’s servants answered, “Elisha the son of Shaphat, who poured water on the hands of Elijah, is here.”
12 Jehoshaphat said, “Yahweh’s word is with him.” So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.
13 Elisha said to the king of Israel, “What have I to do with you? Go to the prophets of your father, and to the prophets of your mother.”
The king of Israel said to him, “No, for Yahweh has called these three kings together to deliver them into the hand of Moab.” 14 Elisha said, “As Yahweh of Armies lives, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I respect the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward you, nor see you. 15 But now bring me a musician.” When the musician played, Yahweh’s hand came on him. 16 He said, “Yahweh says, ‘Make this valley full of trenches.’ 17 For Yahweh says, ‘You will not see wind, neither will you see rain, yet that valley will be filled with water, and you will drink, both you and your livestock and your other animals. 18 This is an easy thing in Yahweh’s sight. He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand. 19 You shall strike every fortified city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all springs of water, and mar every good piece of land with stones.’”
20 In the morning, about the time of offering the sacrifice, behold, water came by the way of Edom, and the country was filled with water.
21 Now when all the Moabites heard that the kings had come up to fight against them, they gathered themselves together, all who were able to put on armor, young and old, and stood on the border. 22 They rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone on the water, and the Moabites saw the water opposite them as red as blood. 23 They said, “This is blood. The kings are surely destroyed, and they have struck each other. Now therefore, Moab, to the plunder!”
24 When they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and struck the Moabites, so that they fled before them; and they went forward into the land attacking the Moabites. 25 They beat down the cities; and on every good piece of land each man cast his stone, and filled it. They also stopped all the springs of water, and cut down all the good trees, until in Kir Hareseth all they left was its stones; however the men armed with slings went around it, and attacked it. 26 When the king of Moab saw that the battle was too severe for him, he took with him seven hundred men who drew a sword, to break through to the king of Edom; but they could not. 27 Then he took his oldest son who would have reigned in his place, and offered him for a burnt offering on the wall. There was great wrath against Israel; and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12: 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when that which is complete has come, then that which is partial will be done away with. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I was also fully known.
Isaiah 55:8-11: 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says Yahweh. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth, and makes it grow and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 so is my word that goes out of my mouth: it will not return to me void, but it will accomplish that which I please, and it will prosper in the thing I sent it to do.
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 as Abraham continued to LISTEN and OBEY God’s Voice, each step of the way, so WE MUST ALSO. We cannot rely on yesterday’s word to DIRECT us today. We know God’s PROMISES in our Heart, but we don’t clearly SEE the steps necessary to reach the GOAL. I will be INTENT in LISTENING for EVERY WORD from the Father’s Heart.
» I decree and declare you will DISCERN those who you need to leave behind. Know that where the Lord/Adonai is leading you, everyone is not CALLED. The PROMISE of God/Elohim is your STRENGTH and your FOCUS!
» I decree and declare in OBEDIENCE I will do as the Lord/Adonai Directs. I will GO, STEP BY STEP, CONTINUALLY LISTENING TO HIM! REALIZE HOW CLOSELY Abraham was LISTENING: he stopped as the angel of the Lord CALLED OUT TO HIM! The Father KNOWS your heart, He is testing that YOU MIGHT KNOW YOUR OWN HEART.
» I decree and declare you will receive BOLDNESS as you step forth and DECLARE the Word of the Lord/Adonai! The Lord/Adonai is making it CLEAR that nothing is taking place without His allowance. When there is famine, or drought, HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD! Do as He COMMANDS. CONTINUE TO SEEK HIM. Recognize that in a time of LACK, the LORD/ADONAI WILL PROVIDE!
» I decree and declare I will ALWAYS HAVE MY EAR TUNED TO THE LORD MY GOD/ADONAI ELOHAI! I will go and do as He DIRECTS; I will POSITION MYSELF FOR HIS PROVISION!
» I decree and declare the Word of the Lord/Adonai, often, does not make sense to our human understanding. As is the case with Elisha, the Word was to FULFILL THE IMMEDIATE NEED and to CONFUSE the enemy. We cannot REASON OUT the ways of God/Elohim.
» I decree and declare ACCEPTANCE and OBEDIENCE to the Word of God/Elohim is necessary to see the ACCOMPLISHMENT of all He desires to do. There is a COMMITMENT and TRUST required in order for the Lord/Adonai to FULFILL HIS WORD.
» I decree and declare we KNOW IN PART and we PROPHESY IN PART! We see only a GLIMPSE at a time. Continue to SEEK the Lord in ALL YOU DO!
» I decree and declare the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai says: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways. For as the Heavens are higher than Earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
» 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!
