Jan. 17. “ If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways - THEN I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14) When the heavens are shut up…when the heavens are as brass and we cannot break through…when we lack the spiritual rain and refreshing from Your Spirit - we know it is time to pray and repent. When the heavens are like brass, it’s because sin has created strongholds where principalities and powers rule. It is like a blanket of heaviness and apathy, kind of like spiritual smog, but the scriptures call it ‘the valley of the shadow of death.’ Only the Word of God can defeat the enemy. Only light displaces darkness. When we use the sword of the Spirit, the enemy must bow and submit to the Word of God, for they are under the feet of Jesus. The Word of God commands the ungodly authority structures to be torn down so that principalities can no longer block our prayers. It releases the wind of the Holy Spirit to bring an open heaven. Lord of Hosts, King of Glory, we ask that You take the sword of Your Spirit , and release angelic assistance to dismantle the ungodly authority structures in the heavenlies as we make these declarations.
We have pursued our enemies and overtaken them, neither did we turn back again until they were destroyed. We have wounded them so that they could not rise; they have fallen under our feet. (Ps. 18:36,37) And, ‘May the God of peace crush Satan under your feet shortly,’ according to Rom. 16:20
I declare, "Let the principalities and powers fall like lightening out of their heavenly places," and we shall say, ‘I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightening.’ as it is written in Luke 10:18. Let Your light strike the mountains of pride, swiftly, Lord Jesus! Let Your light strike the mountains of resistance! Let the light of Your Word strike principalities and powers! Move, mountains, move, in Jesus name! Mountains of sickness, poverty, debt, and bondage come down now in Jesus name! Mountains of division, discord, and doubt, be removed in Jesus name! For it is written, ‘Who are you, O great mountain? For before the Lord you shall become a level plain.’ We declare grace, grace, grace to the works of the Lord and of His servants, in Jesus name!
I declare, ‘For You are good, O Lord, and Your mercies endure forever!’ The heavens do not belong to the enemy, for it is written, ‘Indeed, heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord our God, also the earth with all that is in it.’ And we declare, ‘For You are good, and Your mercies endure forever!’
I declare, it is written, ‘He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death; and broke their chains in pieces.’ (Ps. 107:14) and, it is also written, ‘The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a great light has shined.’ (Is. 9:2).
Enemy be dismayed at the strong arm of the Lord! Be vanquished, be removed from your high places, for it is written, ‘For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former shall not be remembered nor come to mind.’ Is. 65:17
‘The heavens declare the glory of God,’ according to Ps. 19:1, and we say, ‘His mercies endure forever!’
I declare, “The Lord will open to us His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to our land in its season, and to bless all the work of our hands.” Deut. 28:12 And we shall say, ‘For He is good, and His mercies endure forever!’”
I command all ungodly altars to be silent now, and I declare the enemy shall no longer be worshipped through sin and iniquity. I loose all evil spirits off of ungodly altars, shrines and places where false gods are worshipped and I ask for the Lord of Hosts to rebuke and remove those spirits out of the airwaves and tear down the high places of the enemy. I declare they are displaced by the light of the Lord Jesus Christ, in Jesus name.
