Declarations: I am Growing in Discernment!


January 4, 2020 – 1 John 4:1-6; Acts 16:16-35; Hebrews 5:5-14; Matthew 4:1-11 (WEB)

1 John 4:1-6:  1 Beloved, don’t believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit who doesn’t confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God, and this is the spirit of the Antichrist, of whom you have heard that it comes. Now it is in the world already. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God listens to us. He who is not of God doesn’t listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Acts 16:16-35:  16 As we were going to prayer, a certain girl having a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much gain by fortune telling. 17 Following Paul and us, she cried out, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us a way of salvation!” 18 She was doing this for many days.

But Paul, becoming greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!” It came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that the hope of their gain was gone, they seized Paul and Silas, and dragged them into the marketplace before the rulers. 20 When they had brought them to the magistrates, they said, “These men, being Jews, are agitating our city 21 and advocate customs which it is not lawful for us to accept or to observe, being Romans.”

22 The multitude rose up together against them and the magistrates tore their clothes from them, then commanded them to be beaten with rods. 23 When they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely, 24 who, having received such a command, threw them into the inner prison, and secured their feet in the stocks.

25 But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were loosened. 27 The jailer, being roused out of sleep and seeing the prison doors open, drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, “Don’t harm yourself, for we are all here!”

29 He called for lights, sprang in, fell down trembling before Paul and Silas, 30 brought them out, and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

31 They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32 They spoke the word of the Lord to him, and to all who were in his house.

33 He took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes, and was immediately baptized, he and all his household. 34 He brought them up into his house, and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, with all his household, having believed in God.

35 But when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, “Let those men go.”

Hebrews 5:5-14:  So also Christ didn’t glorify himself to be made a high priest, but it was he who said to him,

“You are my Son.
    Today I have become your father.”Psalm 2:7

As he says also in another place,

“You are a priest forever,
    after the order of Melchizedek.”Psalm 110:4

He, in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered. Having been made perfect, he became to all of those who obey him the author of eternal salvation, 10 named by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.

11 About him we have many words to say, and hard to interpret, seeing you have become dull of hearing. 12 For although by this time you should be teachers, you again need to have someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the revelations of God. You have come to need milk, and not solid food. 13 For everyone who lives on milk is not experienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a baby. 14 But solid food is for those who are full grown, who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil.

Matthew 4:1-11:  Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. When he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry afterward. The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of God’s mouth.’”Deuteronomy 8:3

Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,

‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and,
‘On their hands they will bear you up,
    so that you don’t dash your foot against a stone.’”Psalm 91:11-12

Jesus said to him, “Again, it is written, ‘You shall not test the Lord, your God.’”Deuteronomy 6:16

Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. He said to him, “I will give you all of these things, if you will fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him only.’”Deuteronomy 6:13

11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and served him.

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 I WILL NOT BELIEVE EVERY SPIRIT but TEST the spirits to see if they are from God. For many false prophets have gone out into the World. I KNOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD/RUACH ELOHIM by this – every spirit that ACKNOWLEDGES that Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua has come in Human flesh is from God/Elohim, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus/Yeshua is not from God/Elohim!

»  I decree and declare I AM A CHILD OF GOD!  I have OVERCOME the spirit of the anti-christ/anti-messiah, which is already in the World. I OVERCOME because GREATER IS JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA MESSIAH, Who is within me than he who is in the World. Those in the World speak from the World and the World listens to them. We are from God/Elohim; whoever KNOWS GOD LISTENS to us, but whoever is not from God/Elohim does not listen to us. BY THIS WE KNOW THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH and the spirit of error.

»  I decree and declare I will forever be in the STATE OF PRAYER that I will be QUICK to DISCERN in both the natural and spiritual realms. It is not only what is said, but the spirit by which the words are spoken. In the Name of Jesus/Yeshua I have the power to COMMAND evil spirits to leave those who are possessed. They must LEAVE in the Mighty Name of the Lord/Adonai!

»  I decree and declare, though the World complains and persecutes, I WILL PRAISE THE LORD and SERVE HIM ONLY! In the midst of incarceration and harm, the Lord will send His Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh and Angels to DRAW ALL MEN UNTO HIMSELF!

»  I decree and declare PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS/ADONAI YESHUA and you will be SAVED – you and your Household!

»  I decree and declare Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is my EXAMPLE! He offered up both prayers and pleas, with loud crying and tears, to the ONE ABLE TO SAVE Him from death; and He was HEARD BECAUSE OF HIS REVERENCE. Though He was a Son, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE from what He suffered.

»  I decree and declare you, who have known the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua the Messiah for a while, ought to be teachers! Do not continue to drink the milk of the Word – the foundation and basics – but GROW INTO MATURITY eating solid food; through PRACTICE YOU WILL HAVE YOUR SENSES TRAINED to DISCERN both good and evil!

»  I decree and declare it is the SPIRIT OF GOD/RUACH ELOHIM Who I follow; not just anyone who quotes Scriptures. For we see that satan challenged Jesus/Yeshua, time and time again, but his intentions were not righteous. I WILL CONTINUE TO STUDY THE SCRIPTURES so that the DISCERNMENT of the Spirit/Ruach within me is STRONGER than the challenges of the enemy.

»  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!
