God did not command creation by the imperative, or a mere simple command, but rather, the jussive.
The jussive describes a command coming out of a strong personal desire or wish, in the heart.
When God created, He was speaking to Himself out of what He desired or wish to see occur in the world.
When you command something in the Name of Jesus, see to it that it comes out of a desire that it’s in your heart, birthed by God’s Spirit.
Look at nine instances of the jussive in the Genesis creation account.
This is vastly important at how God speaks.
This is the work of wish, desire and motivation in our hearts.
God speaks in our hearts.
Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there ( jussive ) be light: and there was light.
6 And God said, Let there be ( jussive ) a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together ( jussive ) unto one place, and let the dry land appear ( jussive passive): and it was so.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth (jussive) grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
14 And God said, Let there be lights ( jussive )in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply (jussive) in the earth.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth ( jussive ) the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be (jussive) for meat.
