Genesis 24:60 (NIV) ~ “May your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.”

To enter into a stronghold, you first of all have to go through the front gates. Gates are put in place to provide protection for those inside; they create a feeling of safety and security. The gates are also there to prevent things from entering that should not be there. Furthermore, gates are a symbolic image of power.

From our text for today, it says in Genesis 24:60 (NIV), “May your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.” This is a very powerful, prophetic word, for when you possess the gate of your enemies you take away their power, their fortified entrance. When you do so, their stronghold is laid bare, their city is overthrown and all that they possess becomes your plunder.

The Bible says in Judges 16:3 (NIV), “But Samson lay there only until the middle of the night. Then he got up and took hold of the doors of the city gate, together with the two posts, and tore them loose, bar and all. He lifted them to his shoulders and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron.” Samson tore the gates from the walls and carried the gates to the top of the hill. This sent out a signal to his enemies and for all those who looked up to the hilltop. The gates of the city were now broken down and those who saw this understood the message that Samson’s actions conveyed. Through God we gain the victory and His anointing breaks every chain, pulls down every stronghold, and takes away every gate that stands against the LORD.

My friend, may you possess the gates of your enemies. May all their strongholds fall before you, may you plunder hell to populate heaven, and may you take back all that the enemy has taken from you, as plunder. May you walk in victory and may the powerful, prophetic word bring you release and liberty as you possess the gates of your enemy, while your stronghold will never be uprooted, or torn away from the walls of praise and the gates of Salvation that are found in Christ Jesus your Lord and Savior.

God bless you my friend, Pastor Matthew.
