Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: Your reading this message will spell a great disaster in the camp of your enemies

Your reading this message will spell a great disaster in the camp of your enemies. It is going to be a chaotic time for the enemies and l want you to exhibit holy anger in your spirit as you read attentively.

Genesis 22:17

That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand, which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Psalm 107:17

Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

Matthew 16:18

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

In these three verses of the Bible, you will find gate mentioned in three contexts

“…thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies”

“…….for he hath broken the gates of brass”

“…….the gate of hell shall not prevail”

Beloved, it is time for Christians to wake up from what l call “Satanic Slumber” Unless we storm the camp of the enemy and plunder his gates and bring him to submission, it will be impossible to enjoy all our benefits. If we do not become spiritually violent, the sons of disobedience will take over our benefits. If you had thoroughly read the bible, you will find out that gates are made for cities to connote, Entrances (1king17) or for houses (Luke 16) or Temples (Acts 3) Prisons (Acts 12) Camps (Ex 32), Beaches/River bank (Nahum 2) or Palaces (Esther 5).

There are many symbols in the Bible and you will find out that the chief places where important decisions are taken, are the gates of cities. Sometimes,they also function as courts of justice. When people want to sell or buy land, it is at the gates you will find them.

General proclamations are made at the gates; the council running the city meets there and conferences are held there too. Public condemnation of people is made at this point and when the enemy wants to attack a city, the area of concentration is the gate that is why experienced officers are placed there. Also, idolatrous people perform their rites there. Criminals are punished there. Gates are shut at night.


Spiritually, it is the meeting place of the wicked spirits and men. It is an assembly ground where decisions and deliberations are made, where information is passed and action is taken. It is a place of satanic assembly, a house of satanic parliament where wickedness and destruction are planned and the devil assembles his demons and territorial for wicked purposes.

It also regulates entrance and exit into and out of a city.

It determines what time people can or cannot come in.

A gate is the totality of the government and socio-economic life of a city. In the spirit, it has a very heavy meaning which l had tried to explain above. I would like you to follow closely and pray the prayer points that are in this message fervently.

Genesis 28:10-18

And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran. [11] And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. [12] And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. [13] And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; [14] And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. [15] And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

[16] And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. [17] And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. [18] And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

We thank God for G.O's life. If not for MFM, I always wonder what would have happened to people like us. Please I noticed that one of the reference Bible verses on this sermon was mistakenly quoted and stated: it should be Psalms 107:16 and not Psalms 107:17. Thank you and may God have mercy on me, in Jesus Name, Amen
