Topic: POSSESSING THE ENEMIES’ GATES 2

Text: Proverbs 13:22

📖22….”A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.”

Message:

🔥The most precious thing to Abraham as at the time of Genesis 22, was Isaac. Yet he gave him to God in exchange for God’s trust. Christianity is all about earning the trust of God to have us positioned by him for a better future. Trust made God to confide in Abraham in Genesis 18:16-21, before going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. This trust culminated in the blank cheque given by God to Abraham’s children’s children in Genesis 22:17, which makes us to possess the gates of our enemies today. Once God makes the wealth of your enemy’s yours, you have possessed his gate (Prov 13:22, 2 Chro 20:24-25).

🔥🔥According to Proverbs 13:22, the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. The sinner here is the enemy of the Cross, whose gates our children must possess. The gates of our enemies are where they pass our stolen goods through into their habitations. This informed David’s command in Psalms 24:7, for the enemies’ gates to have their heads lifted up for God to ride into their store houses and release for us, the enemies’ possessions.

🔥🔥🔥We have seen now that we neither possess by wishing, nor by power and might, but by God’s Spirit (Zech 4:6, Judges 14:5-6). For God’s Spirit to effect the ability to possess the enemies’ gates in us, we must be ready to change whatever name that connects us to the enemy. When the set time by God for Jacob to possess Canaan in Gen 32:24-28 came, God had to change his name to Israel. By this, his character, authority and identity were changed. These changes made him to limp though (Gen 32:31), but gave him the authority over Esau (Gen 33:8-20). The authority he once exercised over animals was changed to possessing Canaan from Esau. May we also possess our prepared places from our Esaus by God’s touch today.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly Father, may I earn your trust by being able to give up for you, all my valuables, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, open wide for me, the gate of my enemy’s store house, containing my stolen goods, for my repossession, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Blessed Redeemer, give me the authority, character and grace I need, to enable me overpower the enemies occupying my prepared place and wealth in Jesus’ name.
