Isaiah 45:1 "Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held to subdue nations before him,
and I will unarm and ungird the loins of kings to open doors before him, so that gates will not be shut. 2 I will go
before you and level the mountains (to make the crooked places straight); I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
and cut asunder the bars of iron. 3 And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, hat you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you by your name."
As leaders of ministries and churches it is important to know, that we need to take dominion at the gates. I am reminded of the book of Nehemiah, when the walls were rebuilt around Jerusalem. It was when the gates were ready to be placed into the opening in the wall, when the enemy attacked more fervently than ever.
Because he knew there is access at the gates. We have access in to heaven because we are seated in Christ Jesus in heavenly places. We are seated in a place of authority and as we take dominion in the gates, it is like heaven being released on earth.
As we enter the Throne room of God, as in Rev. 4, there we receive strategies and assignments and we release it on earth. Each one of us have been given authority in different cities, regions, nations; wherever the Lord has assigned.
But we have to take dominion at the gates as leaders. The enemy wants to run and dominate the gates, but Jesus is building His church and the gates of hell can not prevail against it.
The way He is building His church, is by building us as His children and leaders as well as being His disciples. We want to see the kingdom come. The kingdom of God is here and it is within. We have the keys to the kingdom.
I also release the kingdom as He is taking me to places, into new cities, countries and regions with the authority He has given to me. Since it is His assignment, it is legal and not an illegal access.
Be aware of "strange fire." There is much talk about fire and the Refiners' fire and there is an need to be refined, because strange fire is not allowed on the altar of God. It is those who illegally try to access to go through the doors or gates they are not assigned to go through in this hour.
"I thank you Father for revelation about the access we have been given through Jesus Christ. Even as Jakob's ladder, where angels descending and ascending and we are already seated in heavenly places in CJ and we have the access, the ascended lifestyle, and we have been given the authority and it has been increasing for the regions and nations he has appointed us, as our jurisdiction, so to speak. Even Apostle Paul said, I know the regions and the places I am assigned to and he was not going anywhere else nor establish anything, in the place where someone else is stationed or assigned to. That would be an illegal access. Or even try to overtake someones calling, that is illegal access and God is setting it aright right now.
I thank You Father, for a greater revelation because when we stop doing that we can do much more for the kingdom and he gives us a greater picture and it is released even in this hour to many, especially leaders, and those who are going into leadership and prepared for l no strange fire but the fire of God and the we can release the fire and we can relase others and to walk and be fitly joined walking circumspectly readeeming the time Eph. 5 how to walk we c as
wise not as foolish and quickening that, quickening others right now as I speak.
There has never been a more exhilarating time in the history of God's kingdom. The Lord has been equipping His people to be well able to take the mountain of challenge and to overcome in Jesus Christ. The Lord has anointed us to go through every gate that He opens before us. We are receiving greater grace and more favor for the increase of authority received in Him.
Many have been pruned (see John 15), only to produce more excellent fruit for the glory of God. Nothing has been lost, only those things we do not need to have clinging to us, as we enter into this new season of acceleration. Everything has been gained, as we have said:
"Not my will be done, but YOURS..." and "I give my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto You."
There has been a deep resolve to only live for, and to love Him first.
The gate represents a place where the king's authority was implemented, issues of culture, commerce, and military strategies were decided, and judicial renderings were released.
The Bride of Christ stands ready with keys in her hands, anointed to unlock the gates of earth, in order to establish His "kingly anointing". Jesus already opened the gates of heaven, but many treasures are yet to be unearthed globally.
Matthew 16:18 "And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not overpower it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven."
JESUS CHRIST is building His church, He is doing it and therefore the gates of hell shall not prevail against the kingdom of God. To the increase of His government there shall be no end!
We have the keys of authority to open every gate set before us and we can receive fresh revelation from the Lord (see Jeremiah 33:3).
These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”
It is the time of apostolic reformation. Greater wisdom is revealed for divine strategies on how to advance the Kingdom of God, even releasing His fire to ignite a Global Awakening.
Therefore listen to and heed what the Spirit of God is saying:
Revelation 3:8 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name.
9Take note! I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say they are Jews and are not, but lie--behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet and learn and acknowledge that I have loved you.
10Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth.
11 I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown.
12 He who overcomes (is victorious), I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never be put out of it or go out of it, and I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven, and My own new name.
13 He who can hear, let him listen to and heed what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).
