This divine invitation is for those who are thirsty and lounge for the power and blessings of God, those whose money have failed and disappointed them, it is for those who have “no money” because this programme will penetrate places where money can’t get to, and obtain many things which money can’t buy. It is designed by Heaven annually for the poor and needy who seek “WATER” and found none and their tongues “faileth for thirst!” Isaiah 41:17-18:: “When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.”
It is also for those who are not afraid to start the year walking through the desert, through the dry and thirsty land where no water is. That is where God’s power and Glory will B-U-R-S-T Forth to bring water out of the flinty rock to refresh their destinies for a victorious race of year 2012. [adsense] ISAIAH 63:1-3:: “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.”
So, over to you: Pick your invitation cards and let’s get marching order from the Lord of Hosts for the battle of the Gate: Isaiah 55:1-2: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness”
PSALM 66:3:: “Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.”
PSALM 62:11: “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.”
I did not set out to seek for God’s power, I was only on an adventure to know God better than my previous acquaintance. Apostle Paul said: Philippians 3:10: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” In that adventure, I stumbled onto the discovery that it is impossible to know Him and not encounter His raw power in action. In those 11 months of seeking in the wilderness (June 2001 to April 2002), I got enlisted in what I called THE MIDNIGHT ARMY of the Lord of Hosts. There, the epistle of the battle of the gate was delivered to me. God took me through the secrets of timing, times and seasons.
After that discovery, January 2003 gave me the first opportunity to practice the spiritual mandate. The prayer series vomited by the Holy Ghost into my heart then flung open astonishing supernatural doors, and till date, for the past ten years, I have not recovered from the awesome deeds of God’s power in my life. Oooh, I was a “Syrian ready to perish” (Deuteronomy 26:5), but God gave me an imperishable ladder to climb out of peril into glory with the battle of the Gate.
We have sustained that tradition of 21-day battle of the gate at the start of every year (January 11th to 31st). Every year is a great leap above the previous, and we are fortunate to enter a leap year 2012, so we should expect to experience a double leap.
At the beginning of every year, I am divinely presented with options either to fly a spiritual aeroplane or rocket. Whenever I chose the aeroplane, it taxies on the spiritual tarmac for some weeks before gaining momentum to take off by March of that year. Whenever I choose the rocket, the result is electrifying, there would be instant launch from the very first month into outstanding and astounding testimonies. My choice may not be the same as yours because a conjecture of circumstances surrounding me and several little decisions ultimately determines my annual choice of either a plane or a rocket.
This is our season of spiritual momentum to break gravitational limits and traditional shackles, doing battle at the gate of each year. This exercise is nothing but a revelational secret of a prayer eagle in battle. The spiritual transactions of this 21-days can catapult you into a power merchant that dispenses power to dissolve knotty problems in your life and that of your loved ones. Like I always said: the price is not in money, not in Euros, Dollars, Shillings, Rands, Rupees, Pound Sterling, or Naira but in thirst and longings, with sacrificial prayers and fastings. May God bless you as you actively participate and pray along. This is my inexhaustible spiritual gold and silver that I have and therefore share with you. Welcome to the arena of power merchants who travail with sweat and blood with unquenchable longings for power that cannot be mocked or toyed with.
