“ And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate” -Isaiah 28 vs. 6
There are physical and spiritual gates to the destiny of individuals, nations and continents. The gate to the body is the mouth, the gate to the house/office is the main door, the gate to a room is the door, the gate to the street is the junction, the gate to the city is the city gate, and the gate to the nation is the border.
Every Physical Gate is manned by a power. The lips and tongues are soldiers guarding entrance into the mouth, the gate man is the power that monitors entrance into an house of office, the burglary proof is the power that monitors entrance a room, and a combined team of security forces including immigration offices guard entrance into cities and nations.
You must overcome the Gateman before you can enter a room, office, city or nation. If the lips are not open, no food or drink can enter the mouth, if the door is opened no guest can enter a house or room, if the immigration officers do not give necessary access, a foreign visitor cannot enter a nation.
The gate is therefore very strategic and important in order to gain entrance into a space to achieve a purpose. In the ancient times, nations do not joke with the city gates. Battles are won and lost at the city gates. The city gates are usually heavily fortified and protected. Once and enemy is able to overcome the Guardsmen at the city gate, the inhabitants of the city surrender to the invaders.
It is for this simple reason that very high city walls and security posts are erected around ancient towns in order restrict a monitor access. The children of Israel could not process Jericho until the city walls crumbled. It took seven days of divinely inspired march round the city before the won the battle at the gates.
In most African societies, fetish sacrifices are still placed at the entrance of streets by ritualizes. The entrance of streets and city junctions represent the spiritual gates, and the ritualists are merely taking battles to the gates using demonic powers.
Christians must know how to take battles to the gates. Just as there physical gates, there are also spiritual gates. Heaven has a gate, and this is plainly mentioned several times in the Bible. Christians must identify the physical gates to their residences, offices, streets, cities, and countries and pray to overcome every evil gateman that may be standing at these gates to restrict entrance.
If you go to a Cinema, you will not be allowed to enter unless with the permission of the gate man. In the same case, there are gatemen guarding the gates to houses, street, cities and nations. You need to take authority over these evil gatemen, overcome them before you can process your poccession.
Take the battles to the gates. There are spiritual gates to the destiny of where you are living and working. Though you cannot see these gates, you need to pray in faith and overcome these gates.
The Psalmist knew quite well that there are gates of brass and bars of Iron: Psalm 107 vs.16
King James Bible
For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
These strongholds of darkness preventing Christians from entering in to their canaaland must be destroyed in Jesus name.
