2 Corinthians 10:1
No I myself, Paul, beseech you, by the gentleness and consideration of Christ [Himself; I]
who is lowly enough, so they say when among you face to face, but BOLD (FEARLESS AND OUTSPOKEN) to you when I am absent from you.
There is a place where we can wage war fearlessly and that place is in the spirit. What we cant argue in the natural, there is a place behind the veil that we can fight. We can cause catastrophic damage in the kingdom of darkness. Vs. 3 – For though we walk in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. Vs. 4 – For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God to overthrow and destroy strongholds.
How do we overthrow and destroy strongholds?
- We refute arguments, theories, reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
- We lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ [the Messiah, the Anointed One]
There is more power in the unseen realm, use it, be bold and fearless!
GOD YOU SAID: “I WILL BE AN ENEMY TO YOUR ENEMIES”
Exodus 23:20-22, 27
20 See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. 21 Pay attention to him and listen to what he says. Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him. 22 If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you. 27 I will send my terror ahead of you and throw into confusion every nation you encounter. I will make all your enemies turn their backs and run. 28 I will send the hornet ahead of you to drive the Hivites, Canaanites and Hittites out of your way. 31 I will give into your hands the people who live in the land, and you will drive them out before you. 32 Do not make a covenant with them or with their gods. 33 Do not let them live in your land or they will cause you to sin against me, because the worship of their gods will certainly be a snare to you.”
DECREE – WE DECREE AND IT IS THEREFORE ESTABLISHED
Lord we thank You for sending an angel ahead of us to guard us along the way and to bring us to the place You have prepared (DESTINY AND PURPOSE). Lord we will pay attention to him and listen to the directions given; we will not rebel because Your Name is in him.”
We will listen carefully to what we are told and do just what we are told, Lord we thank You for being an “ENEMY TO OUR ENEMIES AND OPPOSING THOSE THAT OPPOSE US”
According to Your Word send Your Terror ahead of us and throw into confusion every nation, every obstacle we encounter. We thank you Lord that ALL OF OUR ENEMIES TURN THEIR BACKS AND RUN!!!!!! Send the hornet to drive anyone that is in our way!
Thank you for giving us the people who may currently live in the land you promised us into our hands. We will not make covenant with any strange idols or allow them to live in the land You promised us. We will not allow idol worship to become a snare to us which would drive us away from Your presence.
In Jesus name, Amen!
….and DELIVER ME FROM EVIL – Set me free from the evil one, sin, iniquities, consequences of ancestral disobedience, old mindsets, hurt, unforgiveness and pain.
Deliverance is defined – “the state of being saved from something dangerous or unpleasant.”
He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.” Isaiah 6:7
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and “TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS”, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. NOW MY EYES will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” 2 Chronicles 7:7-15
God You Said that if we turn from our wicked ways that You would:
- Hear us from heaven
- Forgive our sins
- Heal our land
- Your Eyes will be opened
- Your ears attentive to the prayers offered up
Lord touch our lips so our iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven. We humble ourselves today, seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways. Lord let us know of all our wicked ways, Holy Spirit illuminate every area of our lives that include wickedness so that we can repent and turn away from those worthless things so that 2 Chronicles 7:7-15 can take place in our lives, in Jesus name, Amen!
“Present your case,” says the Lord. “Set forth your arguments,” says Jacob’s King. Isaiah 41:21
One thing I am coming to realize is that we do not spend enough time in the Word. As I sat on the sofa last night and began to study I was amazed at how much attention it takes to do so. Before I knew it, 2 hours had past, and the smell of burnt rice-a-roni was a constant reminder of how it was overlooked as I pondered the scriptures. Then I noticed sleep attempting to come over me like never before. Wow, was all I could say, this word is that serious!
When a lawyer goes into a courtroom, they must have all the evidence and information to win the case. The defendant gives all of the pertaining information in their case to the lawyer so that they can argue appropriately and win. “Setting forth your arguments” is not an easy task. You must really delve into the scriptures finding just the right ones to bring before God in your case. Thank God for Google!
Speaking back His word to Him with clean hands and a pure heart, brings Him in remembrance of what He said about your life before the foundation of the world. God called us to be pastors, teachers, evangelists, missionaries, levites etc. He on the other hand did not call us to be liars, fornicators, adulterers, back stabbers, gossipers or those overcome with envy and jealousy.
Find the scriptures that remind of Him of why He created You, and ask for help in changing your identity. Changing from a liar to one that speaks truth, changing from an adulterer who supports and encourages other married people that might be headed down the wrong path, changing from one that gossips to one that exhorts.
Present your case so that you might be acquitted when you stand before the King of kings and hear these words: “Well done good and faithful servant…”
The story depicted in 1 Kings 21:1-16 is one describing a deal that went sour between Ahab the King of Samaria and a Jezreelite named Naboth. Making a long story short, Ahab asked for Naboth’s vineyard to use for a garden and told him that he would find an even better one for him in place of this one.
Naboth was not moved by the proposition. He was not moved my money or position, and makes this statement in verse 3: “But Naboth said to Ahab,
“The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!”
GOD YOU SAID
Matthew 18:18 – “”Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” The term “bind” means to forbid. Whatever I bind (forbid) on earth will be forbidden in heaven
Unfortunately this story does not end well. Naboth is set up and stoned simply because he didn’t play nicely and just hand over his inheritance.
How much is your inheritance (DESTINY) worth to you? Are you easily sold out to your flesh? Are your fleshly desires more than your destiny desires? When you say “thine will be done”, do you really mean it? If you destiny had a price would you sell out?
Will you be like Naboth and stand up to protect what is rightfully yours even to the point of death? Stand up to the enemy and let him know what you forbid today. Naboth did not have Matthew 18:18 to decree and stand on but you do. Refuse to sell your destiny and eternity for a quick fix.
Lord in the name of Jesus, I stand up to every “Ahab” covered in the blood of Jesus and decree the following so it is therefore established:
“The Lord forbid (bind) that I should give my destiny to you satan, so I declare and decree that according to Matthew 18:18 – that because I bound it on earth it is bound in heaven and I loose (allow) my destiny to run its course through me and through my descendants in Jesus name, Amen!
