“O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousness, but for thy great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.” Daniel 9:18-19 PRAYER WARRIORS INTERCESSORS! SOLDIERS AT LARGE! EVERYONE WHO PRAYS! Let us bind together in the privacy of our homes and dismantle the enemy of the North, South, East and West Gates of Our Nation. Let us war and pull down these Evil Spirits and as they are dethroned, "Pray" that the Righteous Judge (JESUS CHRIST) the LORD OF GLORY will once again sit on the Gates of our Nation. Please set some time aside daily and pray in the Unity Of The Faith with United Intercessors in this strategy to take the “Gates” for the Lord Jesus Christ! God has a Mighty Plan for Us and as we achieve this all of us will benefit from this Victory in every area. Psalm 133:1-3
PART #4 THE NORTH GATE – “FALSE GODS”
First, let us talk about the NORTH GATE and where it is located. It is located at 12 o’clock noon on the time clock or pointing North. There was a particular “Ruling Spirit” at this first gate. So if you were looking down at a United States Map that was laying flat on a table-12 0'clock would be NORTH and the states on that gate would be North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois and Alaska. “Then He said unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.” Ezekiel 8:5.
This particular ruling spirit on the North was referred to as the IMAGE OF JEALOUSY because it stood in God’s stead towards the NORTH. It provoked the Almighty God to anger, because a “False” god stood in HIS PLACE. Let us look at this IMAGE OF JEALOUSY, what is it? For one, always a spirit of jealousy is identified with a spirit of strife, division and competition. Some would accept these spirits as good, healthy, and normal attitudes in the hearts of the people, but the truth of the matter is that at the root of competition is “Jealousy” which produces Division, Strife and Hatred. Instead of LOVE among the brethren it produces Disunity. The Word of God reads, “But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. For where envying and strive is, there is confusion and every evil work.” James 3:14-16. As we read this scripture from God’s Holy Word, we can certainly see that envy and strife opens us up to evil spirits. The evil demonic force of the IMAGE OF JEALOUSY (which carries spirits of Strife, Division and Competition) sits on this North Gate as a Ruling Prince, blocking what? Revival,Yes, BLOCKING REVIVAL!
To better understand the North Gate position we have to see the direction of the number twelve on the time clock. It is North. North is also the direction of Judgment. Jeremiah 50:3 reads, "For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.” In Jeremiah 1:14, it reads, " Then the Lord said unto me, Out of the North an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land. In Jeremiah 47:2, it reads, "thus saith the Lord; Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and shall be an overflowing flood..." These are only a few scriptures. Twelve is also the Number of Government. Jesus chose 12 disciples. They were the governing foundation of the early church. (Luke 6:13).
Read Acts 1:23-26. That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. As they gave forth their lot; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he numbered with the eleven apostles.” It was very important the twelfth slot be filled. There were 12 Tribes Of Israel, and Twelve Stones represent the Tribes of Israel (twelve representing governing bodies). In Revelation 19: 4, "And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.” These 24 elders are divisible by 2 which equals two twelves. Washington D.C. the nation's seat of government is located North East on the United States map. In REPOSSESSING the NORTH GATE—just as the people in Nehemiah’s day gathered as one man at the water gate to pray, let us also UNITE in "TARGET PRAYING" to take the Gates Of Our Nation. This evil demonic force of the "IMAGE OF JEALOUSY" Sits on this Gate as the Ruling Prince, Blocking Revival as we said earlier. Many times different denominations, churches, or individuals want to be used to say they broke forth first with revival-Oh, What Terrible Pride! The "Great Revival" that we need will not be identified with churches, denominations, or individuals, but with Jesus and all the people of God. Let us begin by allowing the Holy Spirit to search our own hearts and Repent of Jealousy, Strife, Division, and Competition. We must "War" and "Pull Down" this evil, first in our own hearts, before we can pray and war for our nation.
JESUS REIGNS OVER US
As we continue to look at the NORTH GATE, we read, “Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.” Ezekiel 8:14. Tammuz was also a false god. This NORTH GATE was the gate of "False Gods." As we prayed and fasted many were the false gods that were revealed to me that reigned at our nation's gate. The false gods of the love of money, prestige, pride of life, drugs, alcohol, etc. Others were: Greed, Sports, Addictions, Bribery, Perverted Justice, Prostitution, Corrupted Governments and Pornography. We will take authority over all these spirits in Due Season, Tearing Them Down. As the "Praying Gatekeepers" stood their watch with Prayer and Intercession--we prayed that all Government Officials would Seek the Lord and be Lead by Him.
Pray that all the Unsaved on the North Gate Be Converted to the Lord Jesus Christ. God Loves All Men And Wants To Save All, but those men who "DO NOT" have the best interest of the "People Of Our Nation" and continue to reject God,be "Uprooted" from this Gate. Pray that God replace them with His Choice of Holy, Godly Believers. The Holy Spirit instructed us to pray for the operation of a Pure, Holy, National, State and City Governments, for Men and Women that would Love True Justice, Peace, and Righteousness of God’s Holy Word. In 1 Timothy 2:1-3, "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.”
Jeremiah 1:10 reads, “See I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” Now it was time to plant. We prayed to Almighty God to send His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to Reign Over That Gate. All corruption that had been entering in through that gate will never enter again, because Jesus Christ sits at this Gate as the Righteous Judge over our city—it original function was to be the GATE OF JUSTICE AND TRUTH with OUR LORD JESUS as THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE. It is important to "War in the Spirit Realm" and "Pull Down" All Evil In High Places, that the Lord may place those of "His Choosing" in Positions of Authority Over Our City and National Gates. As we pray about the hidden things going on, He Will Reveal & Tear Down. Because there were no watchmen guarding this gate, corruption came in to our nation. It was around the 1920's that alcohol, illegal gambling, prostitution and murder began to pour in through this gate into our nation. Evil Men like Al Capone and others were used as they took this gate through the city of Chicago, Illinois.
The NORTH GATE—Remember this was the Gate of False Gods, but now it is known as the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, (Gate of Justice/Truth)
1. Pray that Jesus and all His Angels Rule and Seal this Gate Off with the Precious Blood of Jesus – from all Evil--Amen.
2. Pray that our Gates be known as the Gates of Praise! Isaiah 60:18. "Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise!"
