From My Bishop

YOUR GATES SHALL BE OPEN CONTINUALLY

Dearly beloved, it gives me great joy to welcome you to today’s Testimony Service. As we celebrate the faithfulness of God over our lives as individuals and as a ministry, let me re-assure you, that the God you serve will certainly satisfy the yearnings and desires of your heart. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, beloved, settle it in your heart that you will certainly testify because what God has done for one is a testimony of what He will do for another. I feel constrained in my spirit to share this scripture with you:-

ISAIAH 60:10 – 16{KJV}

‘’And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. {11} Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. {12} For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. { 13} The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. {14} The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, the city of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel. {15} Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal Excellency, a joy of many generations. {16} Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.’’

Beloved, often times we feel that God is too slow in coming through with His word. Many times we even feel God does not bother about how we feel, let alone do something about our situation. The result is that we cancel ourselves out from ever receiving from Him, but I come your way today with a word of assurance from God’s word that He is still committed to bringing to pass every word He has spoken concerning your life. His word to you today is that your gates shall be open continually. Gates represent the place of authority where far reaching decisions are taken; gates also represent access to and from a city. For as long as the gates to a city are open, you can be sure that socio-economic activities would never cease. Beloved, in like manner understand that for as long as your gates are open, the forces {substance, resources, wealth, tribute and allegiance} of the Gentiles and their kings would come to you in Jesus name.

Yes, it may appear long, but like the Psalmist said, weeping may endure through the night but joy comes in the morning. Your morning of joy has come. The Lord has chosen to remember you. Get set for your miracle because it shall surely come. The Gentiles and the sons of all those that afflicted you, shall come bowing down before you. Your gates have been thrown open; so get ready for you shall be sustained with the riches from afar. You will no longer work like an elephant and eat like an ant. There shall be no more empty barrel for you and the days of barely making it are over in your life. The Lord your God will increase you and you will possess the West and the South.

Child of God, get ready for wealth transfer; for you will suck the milk of the gentiles and you will suck the breast of kings. The miracles that hitherto looked impossible are about to become the order of the day in your life. Indeed, those things that you have put on the shelf and termed impossible, are the very things that God would bring to pass that you might know that He is God. Every desire of your heart shall be granted. You will not be denied. I challenge you today to believe God for the impossible. God is not a man to lie neither is He the son of man to repent. What He has said He would do in your life will surely come to pass.

Today, as you listen to the testimonies of others, I encourage you to connect to your own by faith. Open your mouth and begin to call forth those things that be not as though they were. Call forth your dream job. Call forth your husband or wife. Call forth your house or car. Make sure you maximize the power of your tongue. Don’t keep quiet. Never let the devil have the last say. Remember that angels are waiting to hear your voice, so create your day with your mouth. As you begin to speak the promises of God upon your life, God will arise on your behalf and bring them to pass.

Until I come your way again next week, go into this week rejoicing for God will continually watch over His word in your life to perform it. Indeed your story will change. Your   shall be open continually. They shall not be shut day and night. I will hear your testimony. I bless you.

Maranatha!

In His Royal Service
