THE MYSTERY OF ROYAL 👑 DECREES
HAS IT EVER OCCURRED TO YOU WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN THE REALM OF THE INVISIBLE, WHEN VISIBLE MANIFESTATIONS HAPPENED SUDDENLY?
EVERY KING CARRIES THE AUDACITY AND AUTHORITY OF AN IRRESISTIBLE DECREE!
EVERY KING RULES WITH ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY OF A DECREE!
EVERY KING RULES WITH THE FORCE OF A VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE ARMY THAT CARRIES OUT OR EXECUTE HIS DECREES.
MANY CHRISTIANS MISUNDERSTOOD THE SUBJECT OF SPIRITUAL POWER 💪 💪 💪. THEY DON’T KNOW THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN PRAYER AND DECREE. THEY DON’T WALK 🚶🚶♀️🚶 IN THE ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY AND CONSCIOUSNESS OF A KING WITH IRRESISTIBLE POWER.
JOB 22:27-28 “27 Thou shalt MAKE THY PRAYER UNTO HIM, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also DECREE A THING, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
THE BOUNDARY IS THAT YOU PRAY UNTO GOD, BUT DECREE OVER YOUR SUBJECTS OR AGAINST OPPOSITION AND ADVERSITY!
18469. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU READ YOUR OWN BIBLE. BUT WHEN I READ MY OWN BIBLE, I INSERT MYSELF MEDITATIVELY INTO THE SCENES.
THIS MINISTRY IS A PRAYER MINISTRY, BUT PRAYER IS USELESS WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF WISDOM, PRAYER IS USELESS WITHOUT REVELATION KNOWLEDGE.
RABBONI TAUGHT ME HOW TO PRAY, BUT ALSO TAUGHT ME THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN SUPPLICATION AND A KING’S DECREE!
I FOLLOWED RABBONI THROUGHOUT THE FOUR GOSPELS. I TEAR-JERKED 😭😭😭 MANY TIMES WHEN HE CAUGHT ME UNEXPECTEDLY WITH HIS UNAPOLOGETIC AUTHORITY. ONE SABBATH DAY, I FOLLOWED HIM INTO THE SYNAGOGUE. I HAD THOUGHT 💭 WE WERE GOING FOR FELLOWSHIP AND TEACHINGS. BUT IT WAS A DRAMA OF AUTHORITY OF A KING’S DECREE THAT MANIFESTED THAT DAY. IT WAS NOT A PRAYER DAY, IT WAS A DECREE DAY…
I KNOW YOU PRAY TO GOD REGULARLY, I KNOW YOU HAVE PRAYER DAYS, BUT DO YOU HAVE DECREE DAYS? DO YOU KNOW THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN PRAYER AND DECREE?
LET’S LOOK AT ONE EXAMPLE FROM MARK 3:1-5 (KJV)
1. And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had A WITHERED HAND.
2. And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
3. And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
4. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
5. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, STRETCH FORTH THINE HAND. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
THIS IS AWESOME! HE PRONOUNCED FOUR WORDS WITH A DECREE AND THERE WAS INSTANT MANIFESTATION! “STRETCH FORTH THY HAND”
HAS IT EVER OCCURRED TO YOU WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN THE REALM OF THE INVISIBLE WHEN VISIBLE MANIFESTATIONS HAPPENED SUDDENLY?
EVERY KING CARRIES AUDACITY AND AUTHORITY OF AN IRRESISTIBLE DECREE!
EVERY KING RULES WITH ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY OF A DECREE!
EVERY KING RULES WITH THE FORCE OF VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE ARMY THAT CARRIES OUT OR EXECUTE HIS DECREES
ECCLESIASTES 8:3-4 (KJV): “… for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him. Where the WORD OF A KING is, there is POWER 💪 💪 💪: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?”
THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRAYER AND DECREE!
THESE ARMIES COULD BE ANGELIC IN NATURE (DANIEL 4:35 KJV) “And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will IN THE ARMY OF HEAVEN, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?”
(Berean Study Bible)
If He takes away, who can stop Him? Who dares to ask Him, ‘What are You doing?’
(King James Bible)
Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?
18470. HE ENTERED THE SYNAGOGUE. THERE WAS A MAN WITH A WITHERED HAND. NOBODY SPOKE. NOBODY POINTED. NOBODY NODDED. EVERYBODY WATCHED WITH ANIMATED INTEREST. THAT MAN WAS LIKE A SORE THUMB 👍 AND EYESORE OF THE SYNAGOGUE. HIS WITHERED HAND WAS A SUBJECT OF SILENT MOCKERY AND RIDICULE COMBINED WITH FEAR BECAUSE NOBODY KNEW WHAT HAPPENED THAT MADE HIS HAND STIFF LIKE A DRIED-UP STICK. IN FACT, NOBODY SAT BESIDE HIM. THEY DESERTED AND FLED WHICHEVER BENCH HE SAT UPON.
THE PHARISEES AND SCRIBES DESPISED HIS INFIRMITY BECAUSE THEY WERE POWERLESS TO HEAL HIM, BUT COULD NOT STOP HIM FROM ENTERING THE TEMPLE. THEY WOULD HAVE PREFERRED THIS MAN TO STAND AT THE BEAUTIFUL GATE (ACTS 3:2), LIKE THE LAME MAN BEGGING FOR ALMS. BUT THERE IS A STUBBORN STREAK IN THIS WITHERED HAND MAN. HE DIDN’T BEG FOR ALMS OUTSIDE THE GATE. HE CAME INSIDE THE SYNAGOGUE TO SIT AMONG THE CONGREGATION. THE CONGREGATION DESERTED THE BENCH WHERE HE SAT ALONE AS IF THE WITHERED HAND WAS A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE 😭😭😭. HE BECAME AN UNAVOIDABLE SPECTACLE OF THE WHOLE CHURCH. ANYBODY ENTERING THE SYNAGOGUE WOULD SEE HIM FIRST SITTING ALONE ON THAT VACANT BENCH.
HOW DID I KNOW THESE DETAILS? IT’S BECAUSE I FOLLOWED RABBONI INTO THAT SYNAGOGUE, AND WHEN WE ENTERED, THE MAN WITH WITHERED HAND SAT ALONE ON A VACANT BENCH. THAT SPACE WAS MY OPPORTUNITY, SO I QUICKLY SAT BESIDE HIM ON THAT EMPTY AND DESERTED BENCH.
SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THAT BENCH, I WILL NEVER FORGET FOREVER 😭😭😭. THE MAN WAS AN EYESORE OF THE SYNAGOGUE. THAT’S WHY EVERYBODY WERE LOOKING OUT FOR THE DRAMA ABOUT TO HAPPEN THAT DAY.
IMMEDIATELY RABBONI COMMANDED HIM TO STAND FORTH (MARK 3:3), I FELT AN ELECTRIC IMPULSE VIBRATED ON THAT BENCH EVEN BEFORE THE MAN COULD STAND UP. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT INVISIBLE ARMY DID TO THE BENCH THAT MADE IT VIBRATE WITH ELECTRICAL IMPULSES. I FELT A FLOOD OF WIND BLEW PAST ME AND LIFTED THAT MAN TO HIS FEET. HE DIDN’T STAND UP WILLINGLY BY HIMSELF, BUT THAT COMMAND CARRIED IRRESISTIBLE AUTHORITY OF HEAVEN! IT WAS UNMISTAKABLE!
IT WAS AS IF SOME INVISIBLE ARMY WAS OBEYING THAT ORDER TO STAND HIM ON HIS FEET! AND WHEN RABBONI DECREED THOSE FOUR GO YE DECREE: STRETCH ➡️FORTH ➡️ THINE ➡️ HAND ➡️
THAT INVISIBLE ARMY OF HEALING WAS THERE TO HELP THAT MAN STRETCH HIS WITHERED HAND, AND RESTORED IT BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL ROBUST SHAPE!
I HEARD THE 👂 👂 CRACKING NOISE AS HIS BONES WERE INSTANTLY REARRANGED, REASSEMBLED, AND RESTORED BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL POSITION.
(MATTHEW 7:28-29) And it came to pass when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes
MARK 1:21-22 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
18471. THE REASON WHY YOU SUFFER POWERLESSNESS IS BECAUSE OF YOUR BLINDNESS TO SEE AND ACT LIKE A KING 👑. THE ROYAL 👑 AND INVISIBLE ARMY IS AT YOUR COMMAND WAITING FOR YOUR DECREE. BUT WHEN YOU SPEAK, YOU SPEAK EMPTY WORDS WITHOUT BURNING 🔥 🔥 EFFECT, OR IMPACT. YOU DON’T SEE THIS INVISIBLE ARMY, SO YOU DON’T SPEAK TO WHOM YOU HAVE NOT SEEN. YOU DON’T EVEN BEHAVE LIKE A REDEEMED KING 👑 WITH AUTHORITY.
IS YOUR LIFE CURRENTLY LIKE A WITHERED FAMINE? WHAT IS THAT WITHERED AND HOPELESS SITUATION IN YOUR LIFE NOW? WHAT IS THAT REPROACH THAT MADE MEN DESERT AND FLEE FROM YOU. WHERE IS YOUR OWN STUBBORN STREAK OF FAITH? WHERE IS THE AUDACITY OF YOUR DEFYING FAITH IN GOD’S POWER AND AUTHORITY?
MOSES WAS A STAMMERER (EXODUS 4:10), YET THE BIBLE RECORDED THAT HE WAS MIGHTY IN SPEECH AND AND POWERFUL IN HIS WORDS 😭😭😭 (ACTS 7:22). WHY ARE YOUR OWN WORDS POWERLESS AND CARRY NO FIRES 🔥 🔥 🔥? POWER IS NOT ABOUT GRAMMAR OR ELOQUENCE! POWER IS NOT ABOUT MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING! SPIRITUAL POWER IS ABILITY OR CAPACITY TO WIELD, FORCE, AUTHORITY, INFLUENCE, CONTROL, DOMINION, CHANGE OUTCOMES, RULERSHIP OVER PEOPLE, EVENTS, TERRITORIES, NATIONS, CIRCUMSTANCES, SITUATIONS AROUND US.
GO BACK TO GENESIS CHAPTER 1, IF YOU’RE STILL HARD OF HEARING 👂 👂. GOD’S SIGNATURE IN THAT CHAPTER WAS: “AND GOD SAID, LET THERE BE… AND IT WAS SO”
YOU HAVE STAGNATED IN ONE POSITION FOR DONKEY YEARS, AND YOU CAN’T SAY: “LET THERE BE DOUBLE PROMOTION FOR ME…”. WHY IS THE WORD OF GOD SO EFFECTIVE INSTANTA, AND YOUR WORDS CARRY NO FIRE 🔥 🔥 🔥 OR POWER? IT’S BECAUSE OF YOUR SLAVE MENTALITY THAT DID NOT RECOGNIZE THAT YOU’RE A KING WITH AN INVISIBLE ARMY TO CARRY OUT AND EXECUTE YOUR DECREES!
THE BORROWER IS A SLAVE TO THE LENDER. WHEN YOU GO ABORROWING, YOU BREAK GOD’S LAW (DEUTERONOMY 28:12; ROMANS 13:8). CAN A SLAVE OF CAPITAL COMMAND THE LENDER TO OBEY HIM? 😭 😭 😭 WILL YOUR EMPLOYER WHOM YOU ARE OWING MORTGAGE, CAR LOANS, INSURANCE, ETC. OBEY YOUR DECREE TO GIVE YOU DOUBLE PROMOTION? WILL THE INVISIBLE ARMY OBEY YOUR DECREES WHEN YOU HAVE DISOBEYED GOD’S DECREE ON BORROWING?
RABBONI SAID IN JOHN 14:30
(New International Version)
I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me
(New Living Translation)
“I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me
(English Standard Version)
I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me
(Berean Study Bible)
I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming, and he has no claim on Me.
(Berean Literal Bible)
No longer will I speak much with you; for the ruler of this world comes, and in Me he has nothing.
(King James Version)
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh and hath nothing in me.
WHAT CLAIM DOES YOUR CLIENT, EMPLOYER, PROSTITUTES, SATANIC BLACKMAILERS, GOVERNMENT, LENDERS, HAVE OVER YOU? HOW MANY GENUINE QUERIES ARE IN YOUR FILE?
I’M TELLING YOU SOME OF THE REASONS WHY YOUR WORDS CARRY TO FIRE 🔥 🔥 🔥 AND YOUR DECREES CARRY NO POWER 💪 💪 💪
EVERYTIME GOD SAID “LET THERE BE… “, THAT WAS A SIGNATURE OF ABSOLUTE DECREE, SUCH THINGS AUTOMATICALLY BECAME WHATSOEVER GOD DECREED THEM TO BE! I COUNTED MORE THAN 14 DECREES IN THAT CHAPTER 1 OF GENESIS.
LET THERE BE LIGHT
LET THERE BE A FIRMAMENT
LET IT DIVIDE THE WATERS
LET THE WATERS GATHER
LET DRY LAND APPEAR
LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH GRASS
LET THERE BE LIGHTS
LET THEM BE FOR SIGNS
LET THE WATERS BRING FORTH
LET FOWL MULTIPLY
BE FRUITFUL, AND MULTIPLY
LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH LIVING CREATURES
LET US MAKE MAN
LET THEM HAVE DOMINION
THAT WITHERED HAND MAN WAS A REPROACH TO THE SYNAGOGUE. ARE YOU A REPROACH AMONG YOUR PEERS AND RELATIVES?
THE DOUBLE ODDITY OF INFIRMITY ON A SABBATH, AND SEATED IN THE HOUSE OF GOD IS A TRAGEDY MANY OF TODAY’S MODERN-DAY CHRISTIANS SUFFER FROM.
THE CHURCH HAS BECOME POWERLESS TO HEAL AND HAS BECOME A DEN OF ROBBERS, THIEVES, AND GAMBLERS IN CASSOCKS MERCHANDISING PRAYERS, ANOINTING, AND THE DOVE 🕊 🕊 🕊 OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (MATTHEW 21:13).
SABBATH SHOULD BRING YOU INTO PERFECT REST FROM EVERY AFFLICTION. YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE RESTLESS AND TROUBLED BY INFIRMITIES, POVERTY AND REPROACHES ON A SABBATH. THAT’S WHY RABBONI GOT SO ANGRY HE HEALED MULTITUDES ON MANY SABBATHS!
WHEN THEY CHALLENGED HIM FOR HEALING PEOPLE ON A SABBATH, HE SIMPLY TOLD THEM HE IS THE LORD OF THE SABBATH (MATTHEW 12:8; MARK 2:28; LUKE 6:5). HE SAID THE SABBATH WAS MADE FOR MAN, AND NOT MAN FOR THE SABBATH (MARK 2:27)
IF YOU MEDITATED DEEPLY ON THOSE SCRIPTURES, YOU WILL SEE HIS EMPHASIS CALLING HIMSELF “THE SON OF MAN”. HE WAS TELLING US THAT WE TOO CAN BE LORD OVER OUR DESTINY’S SABBATH. WE DON’T HAVE TO BE A SLAVE OF RELIGIOSITY OR BE ENSLAVED BY THE SABBATH.
