Unprecedented Thrones

The Gates Are Open

Scripture Reading: Acts 12: 1-19


“When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.” (Acts 12: 10)

In our Focal Scripture, Peter and the angel of the Lord went through different doors of the prison, until they came to the iron gate that leads into the city. That iron gate opened to them of its own accord. The iron gate that had the capacity to stop them opened to them on its own. The iron gate was flung open so that Peter and the angel could get into the city. It seemed that the iron gate was erected to stop prisoners from getting into the city.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every iron gate that has been erected to stop your advancement, I command it to give way immediately. Every iron gate that was erected to hinder your progress, let the fire of God take it away. Every iron gate that was positioned to lock you out of your new season, let the fire of God answer. Every iron gate that was positioned to disconnect you from your next level, I command it to go down.

Peter may not have been able to unlock the iron gate by himself, but the angel of the Lord was ahead of him, and the gate gave way sooner than later. The gate bowed to divine intervention. Hear me as I hear the Lord: even if your iron gates do not want to bow to you, they will bow to the God that you serve. Your iron gates will bow to the power of God at work in your life. Your iron gates will give way as the Lord arises to help you.

If there be any man that has arisen as an iron gate that cannot allow you to enter into the city, let the power of God take him away. Let the voice of God speak to every man that has arisen to block the pathway to your new season. Let the power of God arise against anyone that says you will not enter into your new. Let the fire of God locate and consume every wicked man who has vowed not to allow you to break into your wealthy place.

You were not meant to just see and admire your Promised land; you were made to enter into the promised land with ease.


Every iron gate blocking my advancement, let fire answer, in Jesus’ name!
