“A Gate Has Been Opened – Move Forward in Faith!”
Alane Haynes, San Diego, CA
As I was waiting on the Lord the other morning, I heard, “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty…” (Zeph. 3:17). Then I heard, “Open up ye gates” repeatedly. I immediately thought of Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV):
“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.”
The Iron Gate Has Opened!
As I began to decree this in the spirit, I saw a vision of a very dark place and a huge, iron gate. It turned to the right and opened. Many people began awakening and moving through. Holy Spirit reminded me of Acts 12 when Peter was in prison, and how when an angel appeared to him, his chains fell off and he was led to the gate of the city which opened supernaturally.
I immediately heard, “There has been a shift in the spiritual realm. The forces of darkness have held My people captive behind a gate of iron, but now the gate has been opened. Move forward in faith. In the days to come, you will see a great movement. Keep your eyes on Me!”
First, biblically speaking, iron represents affliction and inflexible rule. I hear the Spirit of God saying that this is being broken off in this hour! Second, the gate turned to the right. I asked the Lord what that meant, and Holy Spirit showed me a compass. Right signifies east – the dawning of a new day, the sun rising, the glory of God. The turnaround has begun. The decree has been decreed by the King; the gate of inflexible rule in the spirit that has kept many bound is now open. I prophesy to you that in the days to come, what has begun in part will flood forth, and we will see many gates opening and a harvest of souls. (Photo via Unsplash)
The enemy has already been defeated – he was defeated at the Cross – but he has brought a wave of fear over the earth that has gripped even God’s people. I saw the scene from the Wizard of Oz, where the “Great Oz” was seen for the impostor he was – just a little man behind a curtain causing havoc and harm through deceit. I believe that is such a picture of what the enemy has been doing.
People of God, rise in faith in the overcoming life of Jesus! The only fear that belongs in the heart of a child of God is fear of the Lord! There is, even now, the rumblings of a great awakening – a mighty turning from darkness to light. Oppression is lifting and the sound of freedom is in the air.
Get ready, get ready, get ready! Watch and see as those who mocked our God are removed from their positions of authority and watch as godly leaders are raised up in their stead! I pray for deliverance and salvation, but I also pray that our God, who knows the end from the beginning, will remove those from positions of authority that He knows are enacting unrighteous decrees!
People of God, we are in a time of great turmoil and shaking, but GOD is moving mightily in our midst. Rejoice and praise His name! The plans of the enemy are being turned back on him (Ps. 54:5) and confusion has come to his camps (Ex. 23:27, 2 Chron. 20:22).
God’s resources are limitless and His purposes will not fail! A gate has been opened, so take courage and move forward in faith!
