Men and brethren, when God made a declaration to Abraham in Genesis 22:16-17, He said “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son – blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the d-seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies” The gates are symbols of authority.
The king had a throne at the gates. The elders sat at the gates. Judgments were passed and sentences carried out. To possess the gates of the enemy, or Satan, is to displace Satan’s authority with that which is entrusted to us by Jesus Christ. As a seed of Abraham, every gate obstructing your breakthrough shall today be lifted.
