The Power of Prophetic Declarations

Updated: Jul 1



Satan’s most powerful and effective weapon is deception. He understands he is powerless but many Christians don’t. If he can get you to believe a lie, he can get you to declare one. If the doctor says you are sick, and God says you are healed. Who do you believe? I choose to believe God and declare what He says about my situation. I will obey the doctors if it is in alignment with what God has spoken to me. I want you to take a moment right now, and repent for agreeing with the enemy rather than standing firm on what God said or is saying to you about your situation. The word repent in Greek means to change your mind. Come into an agreement, with the victory that Jesus, won in the wilderness. He did not let Satan persuade Him. He responded with rapid-fire, “It is written.”


The enemy was defeated on the cross from the beginning and Jesus knew that and was operating from that position. He was working backward because He had already been slain from the foundations of the Earth and Satan was defeated at the same time (Revelations 13:8). From this reality and truth, He was very intentional about teaching His disciple's Kingdom dynamics. He took every situation and turned it into a powerful life-altering message.


We are born to dominate, but if we fail to exercise the authority that has been given to us, we will live a life of mediocrity and far below our privilege; positioning ourselves to live from one crisis to another. The greatest asset we possess is the power to speak to our circumstances. John 3:8 says, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” Every attack of the enemy is the counterattack to a victory that you have already wrought.


In the lesson with the Fig tree, Jesus took this moment to teach them about faith, prayer, forgiveness, and the power of a prophetic declaration. In Mark 11:20-25 (Message Bible) In this passage Jesus is teaching His disciples the power of a faith-filled declaration;


In the morning, walking along the road, they saw the fig tree, shriveled to a dry stick. Peter, remembering what had happened the previous day, said to him, “Rabbi, look—the fig tree you cursed is shriveled up!”

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or hemming and hawing—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”


The disciples received a life-altering Kingdom message which changed their lives forever.
