Declare the end from the beginning
Pastor Todd and I were in Arizona last week for conferences and a prayer service at Fresh Start Church. We gleaned so much from the time we spent there and The Lord clarified many things in our hearts. I will share one of them with you in this blog today.
First, allow me to clarify that God calls each of us to be extreme disciples and make extreme disciples. The first step in extreme discipleship is to submit to Him, listen to His voice and follow Him (John 10:27). Get into His Word every day. Submit to His Lordship in every way. Wait upon Him, be still and listen for His directives. He will speak, if we will only take time to stop, be still, and wait upon Him. He speaks to us through His Word primarily and then He confirms His Word through the whispers of The Holy Spirit. He also speaks to us by using other people to speak words of Truth that guide, direct and confirm. He will NEVER tell you something that is in opposition to His Word.
This week while we were in Arizona, The Lord spoke two very clear objectives to me and Pastor Todd, for the Church, and for the season we are in. This is for all of us in this season. Throughout the conference sessions and into the Prayer Service the Lord continued to speak this message to me over and over: “Declare the end from the beginning.”
Last October, God gave me a very vivid, detailed prophetic dream of two prophetic streams that would carry the move of God in this time. The vivid scenes and the words of the angel in that dream along with this recurring message, “Declare the end from the beginning,” continued to echo through my mind for days. Please hear what The Holy Spirit is saying to us right now. This is very important for all of in this season. We must continue to decree God’s heart, God’s Truth, and God’s victory over our church, our families, our youth, our city, state, and nation in this time.
God’s children must stop decreeing darkness, doom, despair and destruction. Instead, we are to decree His Word and His heart over the darkness, doom, despair and destruction. Resist the temptation to speak curses over your life, your family, your marriage, your nation, etc. SPEAK LIFE! SPEAK REVIVAL! SPEAK AWAKENING! SPEAK THE NAME OF JESUS!
God teaches us by example through the lives of those who have gone before us, like Abraham. The Word of God records how Abraham’s faith moved mountains as he called those things which be not, as though they were, according to God’s Word. He didn’t curse his life by calling out all the things that were wrong with himself, his body, his wife, his circumstances and those around him. He decreed the end from the beginning! He called himself the father of many nations, when he was old, his wife was barren, and they had no children. He decreed the end from the beginning. Undoubtedly, many people in Abraham’s shoes would have had a pity party, griped, grumbled, complained and despaired in the midst of those same circumstances.
Many today, look at the world, the nation, their families, their lives…and they choose to speak out of a carnal mind set, calling those things as they are and giving up in despair. Some just go through life as if they have no real part in how things play out in life. Recently, I was deeply grieved to hear a professing Christian tell me that it didn’t matter what she did because, “whatever will be – will be”.
Yet, God’s Word instructs us that the power of life and death are in the tongue and those who love it, will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:1). My own words have limited authority, but God’s Word is final authority! I have seen this played out in my own life multiple times. When I walk in faith, praying, believing, and decreeing God’s Word; I see miracles happen! I experience His victory again and again and it is glorious!
Likewise, the times in my life when I have given into fear, doubt, unbelief, discouragement, and have spoken out of my carnal nature and human reasoning; I experience darkness and despair. Praise overcomes this darkness. Praying, believing and decreeing God’s victory over the darkness breaks the enemy strongholds. Therefore, we must become extreme disciples of Jesus and in the authority of His Name, let’s decree His heart and His Word over our current circumstances. Decree the end from the beginning. Somebody has to stand in faith in our day, like Abraham did in his.
As for us, and our house, we’re going to serve and follow The Lord! We are asking each of you to join with us in decreeing God’s victory and declaring His glorious end from the beginning.
* Pray, believe & decree revival and awakening over our cities
* Pray, believe & decree revival fire spreading throughout our
state for the glory of God
* Pray, believe, & decree 1,000’s of souls coming to Jesus and being set
free from hell’s bondages, traps, snares, lies and deception
* Pray, believe and decree 1,000s added to the Church and becoming
passionate followers of Jesus Christ
* Pray, believe and decree an army rising up in our cities; of holy rebel
warriors who rebel against hell’s strategies and plans with God’s righteousness, holiness, and Truth
* Pray, believe & decree a GREAT VICTORY and a GREAT EVANGELISM
EXPLOSION through the crusade this summer that will lead to a holy transformation of our cities and our state
* Pray, believe & decree the glory of God descending upon His People and
bringing about miracles, signs and wonders that result in a great harvest of souls and another great awakening in our nation
*Pray, believe & decree blessings, salvation and freedom from bondage over
your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors.
We are the army of God and it’s time for battle! We must let the high praises of God be continually in our mouths and a double-edged sword in our hands (Psalm 149:6).
Choose today to honor Him and decree His victory over the darkness in your life, your family, and your world. Put a guard over your mouth and a watch over your lips; choosing only to speak right things. Speak blessings, victory and life; declaring the end from the beginning, in Jesus’ Name and for His glory!
