DECLARATIONS & DECREES: MEND YOUR WAYS – REPENT!
April 16, 2020 – Jeremiah 7:1-11; Isaiah 30:1-5, 8-29; Acts 3:11-26 (WEB)
The word that came to Jeremiah from Yahweh, saying, 2 “Stand in the gate of Yahweh’s house, and proclaim this word there, and say, ‘Hear Yahweh’s word, all you of Judah, who enter in at these gates to worship Yahweh.’”
3 Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel says, “Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4 Don’t trust in lying words, saying, ‘Yahweh’s temple, Yahweh’s temple, Yahweh’s temple, are these.’ 5 For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute justice between a man and his neighbor; 6 if you don’t oppress the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow, and don’t shed innocent blood in this place, and don’t walk after other gods to your own hurt; 7 then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, from of old even forever more. 8 Behold, you trust in lying words that can’t profit. 9 Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods that you have not known, 10 then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, ‘We are delivered,’ that you may do all these abominations? 11 Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I myself have seen it,” says Yahweh.
Isaiah 30:1-5, 8-29
“Woe to the rebellious children”, says Yahweh, “who take counsel, but not from me; and who make an alliance, but not with my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin, 2 who set out to go down into Egypt, and have not asked my advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to take refuge in the shadow of Egypt! 3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh will be your shame, and the refuge in the shadow of Egypt your confusion. 4 For their princes are at Zoan, and their ambassadors have come to Hanes. 5 They shall all be ashamed because of a people that can’t profit them, that are not a help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.”…
8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever. 9 For it is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear Yahweh’s law; 10 who tell the seers, “Don’t see!” and the prophets, “Don’t prophesy to us right things. Tell us pleasant things. Prophesy deceits. 11 Get out of the way. Turn away from the path. Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” 12 Therefore the Holy One of Israel says, “Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely on it, 13 therefore this iniquity shall be to you like a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly in an instant. 14 He will break it as a potter’s vessel is broken, breaking it in pieces without sparing, so that there won’t be found among the broken pieces a piece good enough to take fire from the hearth, or to dip up water out of the cistern.”
15 For thus said the Lord Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, “You will be saved in returning and rest. Your strength will be in quietness and in confidence.” You refused, 16 but you said, “No, for we will flee on horses;” therefore you will flee; and, “We will ride on the swift;” therefore those who pursue you will be swift. 17 One thousand will flee at the threat of one. At the threat of five, you will flee until you are left like a beacon on the top of a mountain, and like a banner on a hill.
18 Therefore Yahweh will wait, that he may be gracious to you; and therefore he will be exalted, that he may have mercy on you, for Yahweh is a God of justice. Blessed are all those who wait for him. 19 For the people will dwell in Zion at Jerusalem. You will weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the voice of your cry. When he hears you, he will answer you. 20 Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers won’t be hidden any more, but your eyes will see your teachers; 21 and when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way. Walk in it.” 22 You shall defile the overlaying of your engraved images of silver, and the plating of your molten images of gold. You shall cast them away as an unclean thing. You shall tell it, “Go away!”
23 He will give the rain for your seed, with which you will sow the ground; and bread of the increase of the ground will be rich and plentiful. In that day, your livestock will feed in large pastures. 24 The oxen likewise and the young donkeys that till the ground will eat savory feed, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fork. 25 There will be brooks and streams of water on every lofty mountain and on every high hill in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26 Moreover the light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, in the day that Yahweh binds up the fracture of his people, and heals the wound they were struck with.
27 Behold, Yahweh’s name comes from far away, burning with his anger, and in thick rising smoke. His lips are full of indignation. His tongue is as a devouring fire. 28 His breath is as an overflowing stream that reaches even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction. A bridle that leads to ruin will be in the jaws of the peoples. 29 You will have a song, as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a flute to come to Yahweh’s mountain, to Israel’s Rock.
11 As the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.
12 When Peter saw it, he responded to the people, “You men of Israel, why do you marvel at this man? Why do you fasten your eyes on us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up, and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had determined to release him. 14 But you denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, to which we are witnesses. 16 By faith in his name, his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which is through him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
17 “Now, brothers, I know that you did this in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 But the things which God announced by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he thus fulfilled.
19 “Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that he may send Christ Jesus, who was ordained for you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God spoke long ago by the mouth of his holy prophets. 22 For Moses indeed said to the fathers, ‘The Lord God will raise up a prophet for you from among your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him in all things whatever he says to you. 23 It will be that every soul that will not listen to that prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.’Deuteronomy 18:15,18-19 24 Yes, and all the prophets from Samuel and those who followed after, as many as have spoken, they also told of these days. 25 You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘All the families of the earth will be blessed through your offspring.’Genesis 22:18; 26:4 26 God, having raised up his servant Jesus, sent him to you first to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your wickedness.”
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 Hear the Word of the Lord/Adonai, all you who call yourselves by the name of Christ/Messiah that come into the Congregation to WORSHIP the Lord/Adonai. Thus says the Lord of Hosts/Adonai Tzva’ot, the God/Elohim of Israel, “MEND YOUR WAYS and YOUR DEEDS, and I will let you LIVE in this place.”
» I decree and declare you WILL NOT TRUST in DECEPTIVE WORDS and say “The Temple of the Lord/Adonai, the Temple of the Lord/Adonai, the Temple of the Lord/Adonai!” No, if you TRULY MEND YOUR WAYS and YOUR DEEDS – if you are doing JUSTICE between a man and his neighbor, not oppressing the sojourner, orphan and widow nor shedding innocent blood in this place, nor going after other gods to your own ruin – then, the Lord/Adonai says, “ I WILL LET YOU DWELL IN THIS PLACE!”
» I decree and declare the words of the Lord/Adonai, “HOW CAN YOU steal, murder, and commit adultery and perjury, and offer incense to Baal and walk after other gods whom you have not known—and then come and STAND BEFORE ME in this house that bears My Name saying, ‘We are saved!’ – so that you may keep doing all these abominations?” EXAMINE YOUR HEARTS!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai SEES YOUR EVERY MOVE; He knows the plans and alliances you make that are not of His Spirit/Ruach – these add SIN TO SIN. You make plans of where to go for REFUGE AND SHELTER, WITHOUT CONSULTING God/Elohim. Their stronghold and shelter will become your SHAME and DISGRACE.
» I decree and declare I will SHARE THE WORD OF THE LORD/ADONAI, as He directs; it is a WITNESS to the People for THE LAST DAY, FOREVER. The Churches and Synagogues are in REBELLION – they are lying Children unwilling to obey the Law/Torah of the Lord/Adonai. THEY ARE SO BOLD TO SAY to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us what is right. Turn away from the Path! Let’s hear no more about the Holy One of Israel!”
» I decree and declare the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai is WARNING: “Because you DESPISE THIS WORD, and trust in oppression and rely on PERVERSITY, therefore this sin will be to you like a CRACK BULGING IN A HIGH WALL, ABOUT TO FALL – its collapse come SUDDENLY, in an instant!”
» I decree and declare BY REPENTANCE AND REST YOU ARE SAVED, in quietness and TRUST is your strength! The Lord/Adonai is LONGING TO BE GRACIOUS TO YOU. For He is a God/Elohim of JUSTICE. BLESSED ARE ALL WHO WAIT FOR HIM! Your ears will hear a Word behind you saying, THIS IS THE WAY, walk in it.
» I decree and declare God Almighty/El Shaddai GLORIFIED HIS SERVANT JESUS/YESHUA. Though He was disowned by many, HE IS THE HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS ONE! The AUTHOR OF LIFE was killed, but God/Elohim RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD! It is Jesus’/Yeshua’s NAME and the FAITH that comes through Him that you can be COMPLETELY HEALED: Spirit, Soul and Body!
» I decree and declare God/Elohim FULFILLED what He had foretold through all the Prophets, saying that His Christ/Messiah would suffer. REPENT, then and TURN TO GOD, so that your sins may be wiped out, that TIMES OF REFRESHING MAY COME FROM THE LORD/ADONAI!
» 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!
