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

a)    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. declare:

KJV - say, speak forth, utterance.




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 the knife.

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.

Heb 4:12 NKJV
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.

Rev 2:16
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.


Job 22:28 KJV
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.


HEARD: The joy of the Lord is your strength. I favored you.
