You can rise above any an every situation that comes your way. You can rise above those who have mistreated and wounded you.
You can rise above those who have harmed and wounded you emotionally, those who have wounded you spiritually, and those who have physically hurt you, even those whom have robbed you financially.
These gates of hell are people in whom have allowed the enemy to use them to in one way or another to wound you in one or more areas mentioned above.
Some of them may have even been family members, church members, or just some you met along the way.
These allow the enemy to use them because they have not passed from death to life, in other words they have not truly been born again by the Spirit of God.
These have not learned to love and do unto others as they would have them do unto them.
The enemy has infiltrated them through the carnal mind, as the Bible says, to be carnally minded is death.
These may even appear to be beautiful and all religious on the outside like white washed tombs but, inside they are full of dead mans bones and all uncleanliness!
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness,” Matthew 23:27-28.
These ones did and do not even know who it is, or what it is that is influencing them to act out the way they have against you.
It indeed is the thief that comes to steal, kill, and destroy! The devil and his cohorts that abides within them!
Jesus came to give you life and give it to you more abundantly. He bleed and died at the hands of these demon possessed people but, he did not stop there and neither should you!
He rose again and he overcame them all and, because He is alive inside of you, and because the same spirit that raised Him from the dead abides in you, so can you!
Granted, some of them have tried to destroy your character through character assassination, as they lied and gossiped about you in hopes others would find them more appealing than you.
They were operating in a jealous, murdering, and religious spirit and they did not even know what spirit they were truly of.
Some have even further spread those lies and are of their father the devil just the same. Some have physically tried to kill you, while others have tried to financially destroy you.
More often than not the wounds you received you got them most likely in the house of your friends and family members even as Jesus said “I got these wounds in the house of my friends,” and “a man’s/ women’s foes are those of his own household.”
The key is to forgive them and move on!
Yes, I said FORGIVE AND MOVE ON! You have no time to dwell among the tombs and those who are filled with legion of demons!
Even Jesus said to behold His mother, and His brethren are those who hear the Word of God and keep it. He went on to say, you are indeed His friends if you do what He says!
You can love and pray for them from a distance, but you must set healthy boundaries as to not allow the enemy to would your soul.
You must guard your own heart against soul wounds, offence, bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, hatred, rage and grudges. These wounds can and do cause many to become sick and cause diseases.
Give them a space to repent but, after you have given them space to repent and you see no real genuine repentance, then shake the dust off your feet and move on for a testimony against them!
Love is the commandment that is the fulfilling of the law but, love does not in any wise mean you have to stay in a toxic relationship or allow the enemy to walk all over and abuse you through others.
The enemy is after your life and your destiny and he has sent many out against you but, you have the power to take it up again!
This commandment you learned of your Father even as Jesus did! You have the same resurrection power on the inside of you, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, and He is alive on the inside of you! You can get back up and rise above them!
It was after Jesus said “Father forgive them, because they know not what they do,” then He died and rose again.
He plainly said, “No man taketh My Life from Me, I lay it down willfully and, I take it up again. This commandment I learned of My Father.” He also said the last enemy to be defeated is death!
The Bible declares that the gates of hell shall not prevail against you. Why? Because He is with you and in you to deliver you!
The greater one lives on the inside of you! You hold the power and Jesus has given you the keys!
He has given you the wisdom you need to let the dead bury the dead and take up your cross where they have killed your reputation and wounded your soul and follow Him!
Shake those snakes off in the fire and move on taking the wisdom you learned with you. Leave the grudges and the past behind you an forget those things that are behind you as you press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus.
There are many who have overcome them, and so can you!
The Bible says you have overcome them by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, for you loved not your fallen life unto death, and, unless a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die it abides alone but, if it dies it can produce much fruit!
What you have learned through this process is how to die to your own flesh-nature and you have learned how to produce the fruit of his nature.
The gates of hell, (those who have demons operating in them), death, (those who are in the carnal mind of the devil), and the grave, (those who are white washed tombs/ religious people filled with all uncleanness), these actually have not the power to keep you in the ground!
“The Spirit of The LORD would say unto you this day, rise up my fair one an follow me, come away with me into the realm of my spirit where there is safety.
Come into My secret place and find your refuge from the storms of life. For it is in Me that you will find rest for your souls.
Forgive those who have trespassed against you, even as I forgive you of your trespasses.
Love and pray for them. Bless them and do not curse them, and follow me on into all that I have designed for you.
For now I have robbed you with my own righteousness and I shall uphold you with My own right hand.
You shall surely sit with Me in heavenly places and you shall reign with Me as you have partook with me in My great sufferings.
You, My chosen ones, shall also partake in this greater glory that is even now being revealed within you.
Watch now, says the Spirit of The Living God, as I cause those of the household of Satan to fall at thy feet and to surely know that I have loved thee.”
