A number of years ago, I had a powerful encounter where an angel named Glory of Nations handed me a scroll that was a three-layer map revealing corresponding pathways and gates in the heavenly realm, in the geographical earth and in the human body. This scroll was also an invitation to a heavenly counsel chamber, where I could learn how all these pathways and gates worked together. After that experience, every time I began to worship, I heard the Father say, Look at her! Isn’t she beautiful? My gate of heaven upon the earth! And He wasn’t just talking about me, but about every believer who allows Him to flow through them freely.
Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean — whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior- God. They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob.
Pause in his presence
So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! –Psalm 24:3-10, TPT
Have you ever wondered why these living gateways are described as ones who seek the God of Jacob? Several months ago, you saw Jacob wrestling with God, dancing the dance of the two camps, when he was on his way home from exile. But this encounter was built upon the foundation of another experience many years earlier. When he first left home, Jacob camped for the night and dreamed of a stairway to heaven, where angels were ascending and descending. God appeared to him in his dream, promising to protect him, to bless him and his descendants, and to bring him back to that very place once again. Notice what happened next…
Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, “God is in this place — truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.” –Genesis 28:16-17, MSG
There are gates in the heavenly realm, gates in the geographical earth and gates in the human body. And you literally ARE a gate of heaven! Why? So that the King of Glory can flow through you, establishing His government here! As a gate of heaven, the gatepost of your spirit (the real you) is firmly anchored in the heavenly realm, the gatepost of your physical body is firmly anchored in the earth realm, and your soul, when properly aligned, connects the two. Over the next few weeks, you will learn how to use tangible anchors to pull your miracle from the spiritual realm, where it is already done, into the physical realm.
When the Father pours things out, my level of maturity will determine how much I can pull from the realms of heaven into the material realm. –Dr. Adonijah Ogbonnaya
Until next time…
