When ever it comes to the issue of destiny, the determining factor is the foundation or background of the individual. No man is an nisland. You are a product of your family background. Each family or lineage is an entity. What we see or know, most of the time, are the members who make up the family. But unknown to most people , every family has a spiritual gate. This gate hovers around every individual member like a dark cloud. consequently, the destiny of every member of the lineage is controlled, determined and affected by the spiritual gate.
For a long time, billions of people all the over the world have struggled to earn a living or attain the fulfillment of their destiny without success. Little or no effect has been done to tackle the spiritual factors behind the fulfillment of destiny.
If you have ever undertaken an intelligent research into the trend of events in your lineage and family, you would have discovered the fact that members of a family hardly rise above their roots. Common limitations, hindrances and problems are like a black thread around the members. Whether the family members are abroad or at home they manifest the same traits, suffer the same attacks, encounter the same problems and are victim of similar ugly circumstances.
Therefore, you cannot fulfill your destiny unless you identify the spiritual gate of your family line and use the weapon of deliverance and spiritual warfare to wrest your personal destiny from the grip of collective captivity.
The fact that you came from a particular family or raised in a particular community should make you to take cognisant of the fact that you are under the spiritual influence of your family gate. The forces behind the gates must be disarmed if you must rise above your circumstances and attain the optimum level ordained for you in life. You must expend enough prayer energy at the gate of your destiny. Constant spiritual bombardment will enable you to rise and attain the heights destined by God for your life.
Psalm 24:7--8. " Lift up your heads, o ye gates; and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle".
There are entities known as the spiritual gates. These gates are addressed in the above text: "Lift up your heads, o ye gates"
Spiritual gates are access routes. They are entry points. They are spiritual doors or pathways of entry into a life, a family, a city, a nation, a continent, a career, a business or a marriage. The gates are not just access routes, they are legal access routes.
Some Gates To Consider:
Demonic Gates: Do you some times notice that you feel choked on your bed? It is the gate in operation. Do you hear voice that others around you don't hear? Then a gate is in aperation. A few years ago. As a sister was sleeping in the middle of the night, she heard a voice calling all her five different names, including two that most people did not know. the voice asked her to get out of her bed, undress, get out into the street and start to walk naked to the market place. She got up of the bed, undressed, opened the first door, but as she was about to open the second door and jump out naked into the street, she heard a counter voice saying " Children of God never run mad". Then her sense came back. She went back to bed, put on her cloths. That was an evil gate in her family, trying to disgrace her.
Do you aften get very depressed suddenly? One morning you are so happy that you feel like jumping up and praising God, the next day you are so depressed that the thought of taking your life comes upon you. It means that a gate is opened.
Do you some times notice a paralysing force moving all over your body? Something presses you down and to lift your body becomes a problem? A gate is opened. Do you sometimes find strange items like insects or human hairs in your food? then a gate is opened. Do you see all kinds of creatures come to fight you? Do you feel unusual heat in your head or does any mysterious object move in your head? A gate is opened.
Do you hear people calling your name without you knowing who is calling you? Do you generally go into sexual relationship in your dream? Do you receive emergency false messages? A message suddenly comes that you should come because someone is dying, but on getting there no body is actually dying? such an emergency false message came because gates are in operation.
Do you sometimes see someone who was confirmed dead coming to speak with you? Do you see yourself in the dream picking eggs or picking dirty things to eat? Do you see yourself walking in a slippery place or do you see the material you put non blown by the wind in the dream? Know that a gate has been opened.
The gate of witchcraft is revealed in Nuhum 3:1. Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not.
Nuhum 3:4. Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavored harlot, the Mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcraft.
A single witch in a family is a gateway to trouble in that family. The terrible problem is that witchcraft sells familie. They becomes a gate to the family, and the whole family will be sold to witchcraft.
I warn people seriously against going to prostitutes and committing immoralities. 99.9 percent of` the prostitutes are witches. You don't need anyone to tell you this. Once you look into their eyes you will know that they are into witchcraft. When a man goes to sleep with a witch, he becomes a wizard and he introduces witchcraft into the family.
These days, we have executive witches working in offices and all kinds of men are being caged, they suck human blood and take it to witchcraft covens. Do not deceive yourself by thinking that witches are old women with grey hairs. Modern day witches and wizards are not so, they dress properly and use the letest perfumes.
The strongest gate is immorality. It will always open the door to witchcraft into your life, why? It is because your sexual organ is a strong gate into your life./ Nothing can protect you from the enemy's attacks. The enemy will have access into your life and thereby introduce witchcraft into your family.
Notice that it was the Lord that delivered Israel into the hands of the Midianites and the devil. When you are living in sin, you put yourself and your family into trouble. When God deliveres you into the hands of your enemies there is a problem.
If you read the book of psalms it appears as if David discussed all his problems to God, but he did not discuss the problem of women with God. If he discussed it, God would have broken the bondage! Solomon his son broke the Guinness book of records in marrying many wives and concubines because of the family sin that was not dealt with. Family sin will open doors to satanic attacks.
We went to pray for a family, getting there we met the man beating his son seriously, we rescued the boy and asked him what he did> He said, the son was using a pieces of mat as cigarette. He put light on them and start smoking. We told him point blank that he was the cause> He was an addicted smoker before. When a father commits sin, the same might be transfered to his children.
Steps to deal with the gates:
1. Identify the gates .You must investigate your family foundation.
2. Go into deep repentance. Repentance will set you free.
3. Renounce evil covenants. Covenants will continue to speak unless renounced.
4. Rededicate your life and family to God.
5. Continue to live a holy life.
1. Every gate of darkness, in my life, be closed in the name of Jesus.
2. Every dark gate of my father's house , die in the name of Jesus.
3. Every wicked gate rejoicing at my problems , fall and die in the name of Jesus.
4. Every negative altar of my father's house, die in the name nof Jesus.
5. Every witchcraft power of my father's house, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
6. Magnets of favor, envelop my head. I re-posses all my lost blessings in the name of Jesus.
Stay blessed in Christ.
