This power-packed message and the prayer points that accompanied it were specially released by the Holy Spirit to confront and surmount stubborn problems in your life. They are God’s lethal weapons at your disposal. Smite the enemy of your soul with them, he will flee and you will have your freedom, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
In Job 22:28, the Bible says:
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
This verse states that you have to make a decree and when it is established, light will shine on your way. It means that without issuing that decree, nothing will be established; there will be darkness.
The whole world was in darkness until the Lord issued a decree. The world was void, dark and He said : “Let there be light.” In Hebrew the translation is: “Light, be!” He created something out of nothing. You too can issue decrees today and something will happen in your life.
WHAT IS A DECREE?
It is an official command, the establishment of a thing in a militant way or issuing an official order. The Bible says: “Whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.”
A decree is a decision of a king or government.
It is an order having the force of law behind it. That is, the fellow is not just saying it; something is backing it up.
A decree is an authoritative order or decision to which people have to comply.
It is the determination of someone who has power.
It is to ordain a thing.
It is to decide what is to be done and what has to take place. The Bible says: “Where the word of the king is, there is power and who may say unto him, what doest thou? (Ecclesiastes 8:7)
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen”.
This means we are princes and kings therefore we can decree things in and out. Our kingship is not by selection nor by election nor by inheritance so we can not be voted out of power. A person can take over government by a coup d’etat and a counter coup can move him from power.
Our own is not like that. We are kings by divine appointment. We are not asked to plead with satanic powers to release what they have captured or make a request to them. We are not asked to pacify the enemy; pacifying prayers do not work any more.
When we issue our decrees, they cannot be challenged by any court of law. Job 22:28 which was quoted earlier says, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
The Bible also says:
If any of you shall say to the mountain: Be thou removed and cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he saith (Matthew 11:23).
You need to issue decrees against some powers today. God has a lot to do in your life today.
WHAT TO DECREE AGAINST
The Bible is divided into two: the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament, you can find shadows of the substance found in the new the New Testament. Most of what you find in the Old Testament which you think no longer exists
