We recently learned about a pair of explosions that killed at least 84 people, injuring 284 near the grave of General Qassem Soleimani, in Iran. Soleimani was the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force who was killed in a US drone strike in Iraq four years ago. ISIS finally claimed responsibility for these explosions this morning, which has become known as the deadliest attack in Iran, since its 1979 revolution.
This news came to us after we had spent the evening last night praising, interceding for Israel and declaring the written judgements from the Word of the LORD upon the enemy, as we are called to do, in accordance to Psalms 149.
This immediately brought to mind Yehoshaphat's plan of war, who put out the Levites ahead of the army, worshiping and praising ADONAI, Who brought confusion upon the enemy's camp:
"Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” 21 After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying:
“Give thanks to the Lord,
for His love endures forever.”
22 As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. 23 The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another."
2 Chronicles 20:20-23
Yehoshaphat received the revelation from the LORD and executed the plan accordingly, and ADONAI worked on behalf of Israel, causing the enemy to fight each other, bringing confusion in their camp, and ultimately destroying themselves!
We also need to draw near to the LORD, in order to receive the revelation, which then becomes our declaration!
Just like the Levites sang and declared "Hodu La'Adonai ki Tov, ki leolam hasod!" (“Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever!”).
When we declare the Word of the LORD, it brings forth the manifestation of that Word into being, and into reality!
"Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand,7 To execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples;8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;9 To execute on them the written judgment—This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!" Psalms 149:6-9
Here are some Declarations we prayed, and continue to declare for OVERCOMING AND DIVIDING DEMONIC CONFEDERACIES OVER THE NATION OF ISRAEL:
We break and divide every demonic confederacy against the nation of Israel, in the name of YESHUA.
We loose confusion into every demonic confederacy directed at Israel in the name of YESHUA.
Divide and scatter them that are joined together against Israel, O LORD.
We bind and rebuke all demonic reinforcements sent by satan to attack Israel.
Make the ruling spirits of these confederacies be like Oreb, Zeeb, Zebah, and Zalmunna, in accordance to Psalms 83:5–11
O my God, make them like the wheel, as the stubble before the wind, in accordance to Psalms 83:13.
Persecute them with Thy tempest, and make them afraid with Thy storm, in accordance to Psalms 83:15.
Let them be confounded and troubled forever. Let them be put to shame and perish, in accordance to Psalms 83:17.
Loose confusion, and let them attack each other in the name of YESHUA, in accordance to 2 Chronicles 20:23.
We release the sword of the LORD against the powers of hell in the name of YESHUA, in accordance to Judges 7:18.
Let your enemies fall by the sword, in YESHUA'S Mighty Name, in accordance to Psalm 63:10.
We release the sword of the LORD against leviathan, in accordance to Isaiah 27:1.

Ordain and release Your arrows against Israel's persecutors, in accordance to Psalm 7:13.
Send out Your arrows, O LORD, and scatter the enemy, in accordance to Psalm 18:14.
We pray that you begin to declare these written judgements of ADONAI, as you praise Him in your intercessions for Israel during these crucial times!
