I recently read a word by Dutch and Tim Sheets on The Elijah List called "You are Entering a Time of My Kingdom Fireworks," You can follow the link here to read it if you like.
Here is a portion of that article:
Holy Spirit gave my brother, Tim Sheets, a strong word with a unique phrase: "Fire Word Decrees." In the Word, these are decrees made by the Church, which Holy Spirit releases as fiery arrows. It seems clear, from this word, that Holy Spirit is shifting us into a season of great victory over His enemies.
"Fire Word Decrees"
by Tim Sheets
Tim says: Recently, as I was praying over our nation, I received a vision from the Holy Spirit. I believe this revelation and prophetic insight will give us discernment of our times and strategies to implement.
I saw a vast army of angel warriors. Each angel was carrying a bronze bow, and the lines of angels stretched in all directions. They were moving away from a huge warehouse, and I knew they had been inside the building. The sign on the warehouse read: "Arsenal: Fire Word Decrees."
I then saw the angels raise their bronze bows in unison and release flaming arrows. Each arrow tip was ablaze, and the angels were firing them as quickly as possible. The sky was filled with these arrows; they were targeted at enemy positions that the Lord allowed me to see. When the arrows hit the target, they exploded into greater flames, like fireballs.
I was then given an aerial view and saw that the barrage of arrows was devastating the positions of our enemies. I heard Holy Spirit shout: "Behold the 'fire words' of the King's Ekklesia! Empty the arsenals, shoot at the strongholds, and Hell's princes will fall." I then saw the front gate of a stronghold beginning to fall forward. As it fell, I could read the sign over it, which read: "Camp Evil."
After praying about this, Holy Spirit revealed to me that it is time for a move of God that will destroy strongholds in this nation. Angelic warriors are going to empty arsenals filled with the "Fire Word Decrees" of the Ekklesia. Holy Spirit has stored these decrees up for an appointed time, just as Revelation 5:8 describes, stating that the prayers and decrees of the saints are stored in golden bowls. These 'word seeds' have now grown and matured, and angels are assisting in bringing them to pass.
As the voice of God thunders across America through the mouths of His sons and daughters, demonic princes that have ruled territories with their dark agenda will be dethroned. Holy Spirit and His armies are now beginning to tip the bowls, emptying the prayer and decree arsenals of King Jesus. America is going to be saved, and camps of evil, along with their leaders, are going to fall."
Here is also a link to an article I wrote in April 2015 called, Keep Praying, Your Prayers are Setting Off Spiritual Bombs! It confirms what Dutch and Tim Sheets wrote. People are fed up and are releasing the decrees of God. Those are arrows that are hitting their mark, and captives are being set free! There are more decrees on this article.
As I read the article by Dutch and Tim, two things stood out to me. First, we need to do our part to take action when we read a prophetic word. Second, decrees are the stealth bombs that hit the enemy's camp and are needed more than anything in this hour. It is so important to make sure that what we decree lines up with the word of God and also carries the heart of God.
God is so patient and kind, His intention is always to show mercy before resorting to all out war, because He knows that war brings casualties. It is never His intention that anyone would needlessly perish without knowing Him and being assured of a person's salvation. However, with that said, God is also not soft on sin. No one can sin with impunity and think that there are no consequences. There is punishment for sin, and there are people that are called to be tools in His hand to enact justice for the oppressed. Decrees return God's word to Him so that He administer's justice in His way, in His timing. But, as we can see from the many. many prophetic voices, this is a NOW season where God is dealing with many, many years of injustice. Crimes have been committed that require us to formulate very specific and detailed decrees that will hit the bullseye. We are the skilled archers in His hand. We have been trained for the day of battle. It is time to release the firey decrees and not relent until He tells us, because He is dealing with the works of darkness.
Please do not engage the enemy directly in battle, and be careful that you don't go to war with open doors the enemy may exploit. Confess any known sin in prayer and pray for protection, first. Here is a link to a prayer of protection.
Decree the End to the Princes of Hell
I know You are a righteous judge. You tell us to be steadfast in love and faithfulness, and to overcome evil with good. You remind us to turn away from evil, to hate wickedness and love what is good; to establish justice in the gates in hopes that You will be gracious to Your people. Oh Lord, deliver us and our children from the hand of the wicked and preserve the lives of Your people, as it is written in Psalm 97:10. For there are evil people that seek the destruction of our families and Yours. I petition You to send forth your justice and judgement, in whatever form You deem appropriate, that those who are willfully and selfishly conspiring to do evil are brought to a place of accountability. Let injustice be overturned and the captives be set free. On behalf of all those who You desire to save, redeem and restore, please hear this petition and release the Hosts of Heaven to fulfill these decrees.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I take a stand for righteousness and declare an end to all demonic princes and their territories.
I declare the demonic strongholds are crumbling in families, regions, cities and over this nation. For it is written in 2 Corinthians 10:4 that Your people have divine power to destroy strongholds. And, according to 2 Corinthians 10:5, I ask You, Father, to release angels and the Spirit of Truth into the minds and hearts of people everywhere, to destroy every argument and lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every renegade thought into obedience to the Lord.
I declare the name of Jesus Christ is the stronghold over this nation, and people will run to the stronghold of the Lord declaring, (as it is written in 2 Samuel 22:3), “My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge,my Savior; You save me from violence.”
I ask You, kind and gracious God, to show mercy to anyone that can be saved, and bring them into the kingdom of Your dear Son quickly. Let not one soul be lost if they are willing to turn from their wicked ways. Let the fear of the Lord and conviction of their hearts compel them to repent and cry out for salvation to the Lord Jesus Christ before it is too late.
Whereas, there are people You have raised up in positions of authority and power to be as princes over Your people, but they have walked in the ways of the wicked, stood in agreement with sinners, and sat in the seat of the scornful, in their ways mocking God and causing others to sin; therefore, I declare an end to generational iniquities and demonic dynasties, according to 1 Kings 16:3 and 1 Kings 14:10.
Whereas, there are those who have occupied seats of authority and have power over the citizens of this nation, and they have attempted to control society at the expense of democracy and equality; they have ruled your people with an iron hand, to control, oppress and take Your people into captivity; and, they band together against the lives of the righteous, and condemn the innocent to death;
Whereas, there are those in power that have murdered and taken possession, and made sacrifices to their idols and they have filled up the measure of their guilt; therefore, I decree Your justice has become a light to the nations and Your arm has brought justice to the nations, according to Isaiah 51:4-5 and it is written the Lord will judge his people in Hebrews 10:30. Let those who practice wickedness and evil be brought to justice and made subject to the governing authorities, as it is written in Romans 13:1-4.
Whereas and they have said in their hearts, ‘Depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways, and who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him?’ Neither do they fear because the rod of God is not upon them. Therefore, visit their transgressions with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes, as it is written in Psalm 89: 32.
Whereas, there are unethical, ungodly and wicked people in places of leadership and influence, who have mistreated others and are unfit to continue in leadership; whereas, there are those that have acted proudly in their heart and disregarded your counsel and your wisdom; therefore let the net they have spread for others catch their own foot, and the trouble they have conspired against others, let it come back upon their own head. Therefore, as their sins have come before You as a stench in your nostrils, and as the injustice of the innocents cries out against them; therefore I declare their end has come. May you judge them according to their ways. Repay them with trouble and strike the demonic principalities, powers, rulers and dominions with Your mighty hand according to Ezekiel 7:3-12. Let the rod of Your strength be sent out of Zion, and may Your strength enable Your people to rule in the midst of our enemies, according to Psalm 110:2.
Whereas, there are those who have unlawfully seized authority through coercion, deception, bribery and persuasion, which promotes leadership of the strong over the weak; therefore, I decree a release of the fear of the Lord, and I declare the Righteous One has brought the house of the wicked to ruin, as it is written in Proverbs 21:12. I declare the wicked are overthrown and are not, but the house of the righteous shall stand, according to Proverbs 12:7.
Whereas, the wealthy have taken control of the government and disregarded civil liberties of this nation’s citizens, and whereas there are leaders that have imposed unjust laws and mandates, bypassing due process of law; whereas, there are judges that have taken bribes that have persuaded them to pervert justice, and others have been intimidated to interpret the law unjustly; therefore, I decree the axe is laid to the root of bad trees, as in Matthew 3:10. For bad trees can only bear bad fruit. And it is also written in Isaiah 1:17 that we are to learn to do good, to seek justice, correct oppression, bring justice to the fatherless and plead the widow’s case; and again in Psalm 82:3 it is written to give justice to the weak and fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.” Therefore, I declare the unjust and unfit to rule are removed from their positions according to 1 Corinthians 4:2 and Luke 12:42-46 because stewards are required to be trustworthy, and as it is also written in Isaiah 22:20-22. May those summoned by You, O God, take their appointed place.
Father, as the judge of heaven and earth, and all that is under the earth, I present these indictments and decrees for your consideration. I do not wish that anyone would perish unnecessarily, nor do I wish to speak a curse over anyone; however, the whole world is accountable to God, according to Romans 3:19. There is condemnation that is deserved according to Romans 3:5-8. These declarations are not about hard heartedness, hatred towards those committing wickedness or revenge, but about correcting injustices from ungodly people that are under the influence of demonic spirits. I pray for the salvation and deliverance of the individuals where it is possible. If these decrees meet Your approval, let the weapons from Your arsonal be released against the demonic powers that have used these people as their pawns. I pray these things in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Oh righteous judge, please forgive Your people for their sin. Let the blood of Jesus cover the sins of a thousand generations. We have committed many sins and offenses, but I pray for mercy.
