Genesis  24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said to her, You are our sister, be you the mother of thousands of millions, and let your seed possess the gate of those which hate them.
Every Country, city, home or neighborhood has gates. Gates are both entry as well as exit points. Whoever controls the gates controls the city. This is greatly realised during time of war in the physical realms. 

The Bible records that Christians are at war.  Contemporary English Version records in Ephesians 6:12 that “We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.”

Many homes,  communities,  cities and the like have their gates controlled by wicked powers. These oppress and intimidate those within.  Do you know that as a born again Christian you can control whatever happens where God has placed you.  God has given each one of us power and authority to control the gates and cities where we live in for wherever the soles of our feet tread, God gives us that land. God told Joshua in Joshua 1:3 that Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses

We are ordained as Kings and priests and wherever we are we should act like the masters.  The enemy knows it but won’t give it up if we don’t arise and control whatever happens where we are. 

The enemy will try to fight back, when taking such lands for the Lord,  just as it happens in the physical realms. His resistance and weapons, however,  are not as deadly as the ones in our arsenal.  We arise and take it by force.  Jesus told his disciples, “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” Matthew 16:18. Gates of wickedness or wickedness will try to control the Church but we are to prevail against them.  A believer can do this in spiritual warfare or in corporate prayers.  The battle intensifies with the expanse of the area covered. David knew this kind of warfare,  he would call upon the name of the lord to intervene. 

Psalms 24:7-8 Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory? Jehovah strong and mighty, Jehovah mighty in battle.

As done in the physical realms, the best strategy would be to bind the strong man and destroy him,  then destroy the gates of the enemies and their cities. You can do so by declaring by the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus you are possessing and destroying the gates of your enemies in your neighborhood etc.  Advance and destroy their cities,  hiding places, altars and their foundations. Declare you are taking them for God. Declare you are establishing new gates,  gates of righteousness with the angels of God guarding them. Welcome the King of glory to enter and take over. It is important to survey where you are and destroy the enemy’s exit and entry points that have been established through evil altars and foundations. God wants to come to your family,  your neighbourhood, city, nation, institution etc welcome him. A pious attitude, stand,  or titles cannot change this; it takes a man or woman of God who knows that he or she has been anointed by God at a time like this to destroy evil establishments and welcome Christ where we stay. Stop complaining about the problems in your locality, for you have the solution. A lion will be ruled by Hyena’s until the day he will arise and roar as the king of the jungle,  then every other animal will take cover. 

You are Abraham’s children by faith

It is your time to arise!

Possessing is a word that is severally used especially in the Old Testament. The children of Israel were to be given a land that didn’t belong to them, after they had miraculously been delivered from their oppressors in Egypt. As part of God’s promise, they were to inherit a “good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land they would sow without scarcity; a land whose stones [were] iron and out of whose hills you could dig copper” Deut 8:7-9.
The reason as to why God was to give them the land had nothing to do with their good deeds, but out of God’s love and compassion for them. He told them De 7:6-7 “For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. “The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples;”
When Joshua took over from Moses, God spoke to him thus: Jos 1:2-3 “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them-the children of Israel. “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.”
It is also evident, from numerous accounts in the Bible that God’s people were not only to possess lands, but people, gates and cities as well. let the scripture speak:
Mic 1:15 I will yet bring unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah, him that shall possess thee: the glory of Israel shall come even unto Adullam.
Ob 1:17 But in mount Zion there shall be those that escape, and it shall be holy; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
Eze 36:12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of children.
Ob 1:20 And the captives of this host of the children of Israel, that are among the Canaanites, shall possess even unto Zarephath; and the captives of Jerusalem, that are in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the South
Ge 22:17 that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies.
For the children of Israel to possess these blessings, God directed them on how to go about it, how to maintain their possessions and the pitfalls to be wary of. First, they were not to be afraid of them, however impossible it seemed.
De 7:17-19 If thou shalt say in thy heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them? hou shalt not be afraid of them: thou shalt well remember what Jehovah thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt; the great trials which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm, whereby Jehovah thy God brought thee out: so shall Jehovah thy God do unto all the peoples of whom thou art afraid.
Secondly, they were to conquer them and destroy them completely, lest they become snares to them. They were also not to intermarry with them
De 7:2-3 and when Jehovah thy God shall deliver them up before thee, and thou shalt smite them; then thou shalt utterly destroy them: thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them; neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
Thirdly, they were to destroy their items of worship, namely altars, sacred pillars, wooden images and carved images. De 7:5 But thus shall ye deal with them: ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and hew down their Asherim, and burn their graven images with fire.
They were also to keep God’s commands by observing them diligently. With this God would greatly bless them: De 7:15 And Jehovah will take away from thee all sickness; and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, will he put upon thee, but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
Moreover, God demanded from them not to covet any of the things used by the inhabitants of the land, they were not also to bring them to their houses for they would bring great ruin to them. De 7:25-26 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein; for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God. And thou shalt not bring an abomination into thy house, and become a devoted thing like unto it: thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a devoted (accursed) thing.
God promised them that He would drive away the inhabitants of the land. This would be done little by little until they were no more. God would hand them over to the Israelites to inflict defeat upon them.
De 7:22 And Jehovah thy God will cast out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.
God’s power would go before them, to smite their enemies, even their powerbases: Zec 9:4 Behold, the Lord will dispossess her, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.
Wherever God takes his children, he expects them to possess. If they would not do this, then they would end up being ineffective in serving God. Child of God, God has raised you in your family, house, place of work, neighbourhood etc to possess. WHOEVER POSSESSES CONTROLS. You possess cities, gates, people, land etc and bring all under the subjection and authority of Jesus Christ. You arise and drive away whatever stands against the purposes of God. DON’T WHIMPER. ARISE AND POSSESS. Consider to use the prayers below to possess:
Start with praise and worship (take good time in this), repent and put on the full armour of God as in Eph 6:12 ff
Let the Lord arise and let his enemies be defeated in my life, in this institution, in  __ (fill as appropriate)

Let the wisdom of the LORD guide me as I rule in this ______ in Jesus name.
Take time to thank God for prayers answered. Repeat these prayers until the Spirit of God leads you otherwise. Declare it, claim it. If you are a leader, you must possess those under your authority in Jesus name. There is no other name greater than that of Jesus. Declare what you wish done on Jesus name. You will be shocked to realize how the wicked rulers have been possessing those they lead through witchcraft and evil powers. Your power is greater than theirs. Be blessed
