The tradition of making declarations over one’s children is passed on by Jacob to his sons and grandsons. It is his offsprings that are named for the tribes of Israel; Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph (Manasseh and Ephraim) and Benjamin. Here we will find one of the most fundamental example of this practice in the bible.
Jacob’s declarations are highly prophetic. They depict the future of his generation. The declarations encapsulate their faults, their consequences and judgement; their hopes, dreams and mammoth destiny. God through Jacob, provided a clear portrait of the future of the Israelites.
Go ahead and read Deuteronomy 32:1-4 and declare God’s words.
Listen, you heavens, and I will speak;
hear, you earth, the words of my mouth.
2 Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.
3 I will proclaim the name of the Lord.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.

Book 1: Declarations Over My Life
This book, Declarations for My Life, provides bold statements entrenched in the promises of God. The statements empower you to decree godly declarations, which are good, pure, true, honest, just, lovely and of good report, over your life and your family.
The bible says that “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits”. Therefore, as guardians of our bloodline, we must take the reins and strategically place the power, authority presence and dictates of God, over our life.
Book 2: Declarations for My Daughters
When you declare something, you ‘make it known’. When you make a decree, it is ‘a statement of truth that carries the authority of a court order.’ Therefore, it is effectively a tool that will cause things to manifest in both the spiritual and physical realm.
