RHEMA 10/18/08 DECREE CONFIRMATION
CONFIRMATION: The following post on Decreeing
came out onto today’s list and I had a neat confirmation
to it. I was looking at the Search Strongs numbers at
the upcoming school and decided to test it. So I
plugged in some numbers that filtered into my mind. God
is SO amazing.
To speak out, speak forth, pronounce
not a word of everyday speech but one
"belonging to dignified and elevated discourse"
NT:669 apophtheggomai (ap-of-theng'-om-ahee); from
NT:575 and NT:5350; to enunciate plainly, i.e.

6/18/08 TO DECREE, A NEW WAY OF THINKING
HEARD: Advancement. Where are we going? Grand finale.
Personality. Reluctant. I changed you. Tenacity to
pursue. Why is this important? So that you would not
give up. Climax. Hang on, it’s going to be fun. It’s
useful. What I will show you. A tree of life as it flows
from the throne. A new way of thinking.
PARABLE: I just went in to get my protein drink in the
middle of the night to take my meds. I had complained to
Wayne how I could not open the drink with my painful
fingers and wrists and Wayne told me to punch a hole
with a knife instead. I remembered this, and it was SO
simple to use the knife instead of my fingers or teeth
and it was the same truth about peeling the banana with
It was quickened to me that what we decree will open
much easier through the realm of the sword of the
Spirit, than by using our natural flesh and hard work to
do the same thing. This really is a new way of thinking
for me, as to daily living and walking out my faith. To
decree instead of pray or request. To decree the natural
results as I walk things out in faith.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper
than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division
of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a
discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Ps 149:5-9 NKJV
Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud
on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their
mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute
vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the
peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And their
nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on them the
written judgment — This honor have all His saints.
Praise the LORD!
Isa 49:2-3 NKJV
And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; In the
shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, And made Me a
polished shaft; In His quiver He has hidden Me."
3 "And He said to me, 'You are My servant, O Israel, In
whom I will be glorified.'
Rev 1:16 NKJV
He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth
went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was
like the sun shining in its strength.
Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will
fight against them with the sword of My mouth.
Rev 19:15-16 NKJV
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He
should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them
with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of
the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
QUICKENED MEMORY: I was reminded of Bobby Conner’s
testimony when many years ago the Lord gave him a vision
of a gunman that was about to shoot Bobby. When the
vision actually literally happened a few minutes later,
Bobby was stunned and the Lord told Bobby to decree what
he wanted to happen, because his life depended upon it.
So Bobby started binding and rebuking the demonic
spirits, and decreeing the results of a several hour
stand off between the police and gunman. It saved
Bobby’s life and the gunman ended up coming out of the
water without shooting anyone and without being shot. It
was an amazing play-by-play testimony of the power to
decree, because as each circumstance played out to catch
the man, whatever Bobby decreed ended up happening
between the police and the man.
When the police would make a decision and give an order,
the Lord would whisper to Bobby, “Is that what you want
to happen?” Bobby would see it through the eyes of
wisdom and say “No.” So the Lord would encourage him to
decree exactly what he wanted to happen in each
circumstance. It was an amazing testimony of the power
and authority He has given to decree and His power to
back our Words.
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be
established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon
HEARD: The joy of the Lord is your strength. I favored
