DECLARATIONS & DECREES: GOD ALONE WILL BE EXALTED!
February 15, 2020 – Isaiah 2:11-17; Proverbs 16:1-9, 13-24; Mark 7:20-23; James 4:1-12 (WEB)
11 The lofty looks of man will be brought low,
the arrogance of men will be bowed down,
and Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day.
12 For there will be a day of Yahweh of Armies for all that is proud and arrogant,
and for all that is lifted up;
and it shall be brought low:
13 for all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up,
for all the oaks of Bashan,
14 for all the high mountains,
for all the hills that are lifted up,
15 for every lofty tower,
for every fortified wall,
16 for all the ships of Tarshish,
and for all pleasant imagery.
17 The loftiness of man shall be bowed down,
and the arrogance of men shall be brought low;
and Yahweh alone shall be exalted in that day.
Proverbs 16:1-9, 13-24
The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from Yahweh.
2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
but Yahweh weighs the motives.
3 Commit your deeds to Yahweh,
and your plans shall succeed.
4 Yahweh has made everything for its own end—
yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.
5 Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to Yahweh:
they shall certainly not be unpunished.
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for.
By the fear of Yahweh men depart from evil.
7 When a man’s ways please Yahweh,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousness,
than great revenues with injustice.
9 A man’s heart plans his course,
but Yahweh directs his steps.…
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings.
They value one who speaks the truth.
14 The king’s wrath is a messenger of death,
but a wise man will pacify it.
15 In the light of the king’s face is life.
His favor is like a cloud of the spring rain.
16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!
Yes, to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil.
He who keeps his way preserves his soul.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
and an arrogant spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor,
than to divide the plunder with the proud.
20 He who heeds the Word finds prosperity.
Whoever trusts in Yahweh is blessed.
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent.
Pleasantness of the lips promotes instruction.
22 Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it,
but the punishment of fools is their folly.
23 The heart of the wise instructs his mouth,
and adds learning to his lips.
24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
20 He said, “That which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, sexual sins, murders, thefts, 22 covetings, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”
Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don’t they come from your pleasures that war in your members? 2 You lust, and don’t have. You murder and covet, and can’t obtain. You fight and make war. You don’t have, because you don’t ask. 3 You ask, and don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 You adulterers and adulteresses, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously”? 6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”Proverbs 3:34 7 Be subject therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners. Purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Lament, mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you.
11 Don’t speak against one another, brothers. He who speaks against a brother and judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12 Only one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge another?
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 those who are haughty and prideful will be HUMBLED, the lofty ones will be brought low, for the LORD/ADONAI ALONE WILL BE EXALTED! For the Day of the Lord of Hosts/Adonai-Tzva’ot will be against anyone proud and haughty, against anyone lifted up – he will be humbled!
» I decree and declare, though a man’s ways are pure in his own eyes, the Lord/Adonai WEIGHS THE MOTIVES. COMMIT WHATEVER YOU DO TO THE LORD/ADONAI, and your plans will SUCCEED! The Lord/Adonai works everything out for His own purpose!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai ABHORS ALL THE PROUD IN HEART. They will not go unpunished. By MERCY and TRUTH is iniquity atoned, and by the FEAR of the Lord/Adonai one avoids evil.
» I decree and declare it is much better to get WISDOM than gold, to choose UNDERSTANDING rather than silver. The Highway of the Upright avoids evil. He who guards his way PROTECTS his life.
» I decree and declare PRIDE goes before DESTRUCTION and a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly in spirit with the afflicted than to share the spoil with the proud.
» I decree and declare the One who TRUSTS in the Lord/Adonai is BLESSED! The WISE in heart is called DISCERNING, and sweetness of lips increases persuasiveness. INSIGHT is a FOUNTAIN OF LIFE to one who has it, but folly leads to the discipline of fools.
» I decree and declare I am CAUTIOUS of what I think and speak, for it is what comes out of the Person that makes them unholy. For from within, out of the heart of men, come evil intentions, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustfulness, envy. Slander, pride, and foolishness. All these evil things come from within and make an individual unholy.
» I decree and declare I will ASK and BEHAVE with Godly MOTIVES such that I WILL BE HEARD and RECEIVED by God Almighty/El Shaddai through Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah my Lord/Adonai. I will not entertain friendship with the World for it is enmity with God/Elohim. Those who are friends with the World make themselves enemies of God/Elohim.
» I decree and declare God/Elohim YEARNS JEALOUSLY over the Spirit/Ruach which He made to dwell in us! He gives GREAT GRACE! He opposes the proud but GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE! Therefore, I will SUBMIT TO GOD; and resist the devil and he will FLEE from me. I will DRAW NEAR TO GOD, and He will DRAW NEAR TO ME.
» I decree and declare I cleanse my hands and purify my heart daily. I Humble myself in the sight of the Lord/Adonai, for He will then LIFT ME UP. There is only one lawgiver and judge – the One who is able to SAVE and to destroy!
» 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!
