Arise pray and possess the gates!


Arise pray and possess the gates. . . . .   stand in the gap!

I woke up very early this morning and the Lord said, “Arise, pray and possess the gates.”

I knew it was key instruction.  David would always inquire of the Lord as to whether it was time to go up or not.  Strategic warfare is just that. . . .  strategic. Battles can be won many ways.

Sometimes, it will focus on moving in a direction of unity and love without being divided in what we do, think, or say.  It can be casting down imaginations, thoughts and perceptions that might try to invite themselves in our way seeing or thinking about a thing.  There are so many ways. . . . . a wise person once said to me, “If you can’t dance, you can’t fight.” (There are allot of dance moves out there.)

There comes a time, when the season is ripe and the Lord is saying, Arise and possess the gates.  Gates mean many things, it has everything to do with entry, access, and dominion.

I heard the Lord saying, “Press in because He is about to release abundance (spiritually and naturally) upon His people.”

I have been waiting and watching for this time.  Two scriptures came to my heart:

“So I stationed armed guards at the most vulnerable places of the wall and assigned people by families with their swords, lances, and bows.  After looking things over I stood up and spoke to the nobles, officials, and everyone else: “Don’t be afraid of them. Put your minds on the Master, great and awesome, and then fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes,”   Nehemiah 4:13-14 The Message Bible.

“I’ll go ahead of you, clearing and paving the road.  I’ll break down bronze city gates, smash padlocks, kick down barred entrances.  I’ll lead you to buried treasures, secret caches of valuables — Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.  It’s because of my dear servant Jacob, Israel my chosen,”    Isaiah 45:2-3 The Message Bible.

Time to position ourselves for serious prayer through (praise/ worship/ word).

Get ready as the Lord leads you in intercession to kick some stuff out of the way.  Warriors – Arise and possess your gate!
