Declarations and proclamations are tools of government used by kings. When Jesus cleansed us by His blood He made us kings and priests unto our God. The scripture says:
And who can proclaim as I do? Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me...
You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the vision And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
1 Timothy 1:18 (Fight the good fight)
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, NKJV
God wants us to write the vision down like the Declaration of Independence is written down and then He wants us to begin to proclaim the vision or the prophetic word God gave us. Just like the Declaration of Independence initiated a war to free our people from oppression so our declarations which have been divinely inspired declare war on our adversary the Devil and his demons. It is a war against oppression and to expand the kingdom of God (Rev. 19:11, 1 John 3:8, Matt. 6:9-12).
One way we express this is by writing down the prophetic words God gave to us through prophets and then we pray using those prophetic words. The written prophetic word becomes like the written decree of a king which must also be proclaimed (written & verbal). What follows are the declarations we are encouraging our congregation to join us in making.
These declarations were first compiled by Pastor/Apostle Dan Hammer at www.ISonrise.org.
Proclaim these declarations over yourself, your family, church, city, nation and the world.
