Scripture Reference:

  • Proverbs 18:21
  • Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
    And those who love it will eat its fruit. (NKJV)
  • The tongue has the power of life and death,
        and those who love it will eat its fruit. (NIV)
  • The tongue can bring death or life;
        those who love to talk will reap the consequences. (NLT)
  • Words kill, words give life;
        they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. (MSG)



  • Comes from a Latin word that means “to shout forth”.
  • A proclamation is a confession that is made aggressive. It is a word that speaks of spiritual warfare. It is releasing the authority of God’s word into a situation, into your own life, your family, the life of your church, a political situation, or whatever it may be.


Ministry of Proclamation:

1. Proclamation: Proclaim the appropriate scripture with bold unwavering confidence. Change “you” to “I” and “we” to “us”.

2. Thanksgiving: Accept the scripture we proclaim as true even before we see its actual outworking in any situation. The natural result of this is to thank God for it.

3. Loud, brilliant PRAISE!!!
