The Importance of Gates
We will be looking at the subject of opening the gates in the realm of the spirit. In the natural, gates are used for two primary purposes:
- To keep things or persons out by being closed.
- To let things or persons in by being open.
As it is in the natural, so it is as well in the spiritual.
- From the Life of Abraham
Gen. 22: 14-18 – Indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.
- Gal. 3:16 – Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “and to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “and to your seed,” that is, Christ.
- It is through Christ that you are blessed. The power of the blessing will flow to such an extent that the power of the blessing will overpower the curse.
