Prophetic Vision: The Gates Are About to Open

by | Feb 28, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

I recently had a prophetic vision in the middle of a time of corporate worship at our church, ROAR Church Texarkana.

As I was worshipping, I saw a jockey on a racehorse. The two were behind a gate, waiting for a race to begin. I could sense the excitement and anticipation of both the jockey and the horse.

Then I heard the Lord say, “The gates are about to be open.” Through this vision, the Lord showed me so much prophetically for the body of Christ in this hour. Many have been eagerly awaiting the prophetic words and promises God has given them to come pass. The gates are about to open.

God has been aligning things for those who have stewarded their prophetic words well. He is making a way where there seems to be no way and for those who are ready, when the gates open, an acceleration like never before is going to be like the wind at so many people’s backs.

As the gates open, and God has made a way, if you find any area that may be slowing you down, start refining that area. You may not be able to finish as fast as you want, but make sure you finish strong.

If you start the race more slowly than you like, don’t quit, just keep running. Understand this: Resist getting frustrated. Stay in your lane, stay focused and keep running. God is pouring out His Spirit as never before.

We are entering a season where those who are qualified by God and properly positioned will be able to run through the gates as they open. They will run hard after all that God has placed in front of them. The gates are opening, and we must be ready to run when they do!

In order to run through the gates when they open, we must be in position. We must pray into, recite and declare the prophetic words God has given us. However, we must also be in the proper position for God to actually be able to use us and bring those things to pass through us. Make sure you are in position and leaning into all the Lord has for you in this season because gates are opening!

I believe that God gave me this prophetic word and vision because when the gates open, we must all be ready to run with everything we have. As the body of Christ, we must be ready to take off when the gates open. Many of you have been qualified by the Lord to run the race God has set before you.

When God opens the window of opportunity, we must be in position. We must be ready, focused, and free from fear and insecurity so that when the gate opens, we can take off running until we complete our race! {eoa}
