Prophetic Wisdom: A Strategy to Dispossess Jezebel in Your City

by | Jul 26, 2016 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

In the past several weeks, I have pondered what can the praying church do to help turn the tide of sin, rebellion and lawlessness in the land.

I am re-posting a strategy the Lord gave me in November 2015. This strategy takes the war for the soul of our cities to the gates of our cities (Judg. 5:8). “Securing the Gates”—I need your help in doing this. Take a team to your city and region and make war in the gates with the strategy I am posting. This will make a difference in your city and possibly turn it from darkness to light.

The Gates Must Be Secured!

While in Middletown, Ohio, in November 2015, Chuck Pierce prophesied that we must go through and secure “the Gates.” When I heard him say this, it resonated in my spirit that the church must secure the Gates from city to city and state to state. The Lord then began to download a strategy to me in order to help us secure these gates.

Gates Defined

In the Old Testament gates were entrances used to enter and exit the city. The gates had to be strong and large. Each gate had a specific purpose. Elders of a city ruled and made judgments in the gates of a city. So these gates became places of authority and today represents authority within a city. 

Spiritual Gates

There are also spiritual gates within a region. In Genesis Jacob had a dream in which he saw angels ascending and descending from heaven to Earth. The Lord spoke to him in this gate and when Jacob awoke he said, “This is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven” (Gen. 28:17).

Possessing the Gates

From the time of Abraham the Lord has wanted His people to possess the gates. It’s very important because whoever possesses the gates controls the dynamics of a region. That control can bring in a move of God or it can shut down the heavens depending on who possesses the gates. If the ekklesia of a city possesses the spiritual gates, they can then usher in revival. 

The Lord left Abraham a prophetic promise about the Gates, “Your descendants will possess the gate of their enemies” (Gen. 22:17). That promise extends to us as well. “If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Gal. 3:29). “On this rock I will build My church” (ekklesia-governing body), and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18).

Where Are the Gates in Your Region?

Look where the land was occupied in the beginning. Many of these gates are found where the Native tribes lived and worshipped. Also where the first settlers from Europe came in and lived are also gates within a region. Examples of these are St. Augustine, Pensacola, Jamestown and so on. Also look where there have been previous moves of God because these are gates also. A few examples of this are, Cane Ridge, Kentucky; Red River Meeting House, Kentucky; Azusa Street, California; Topeka, Kansas; Pensacola, Florida; and more.

In 2003, the Lord had Cheryl and me travel U.S. Highway 1 from Key West to the Georgia line to proclaim Leviticus 25:10: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants.” We called it the U.S. 1 Liberty Prayer Tour. U.S. 1 represents His highway of holiness in America and extends from Key West FL to Fort Kent Maine at the Canadian border. It is a gate in this nation. Other gates are places like Disney World and Universal Studios. There are gates in civil government also. Some are: Courthouses, County Seats, City Government, State Capitol, U.S. Capitol and the White House. 

Who Possesses the Gates in Your City?

The ekklesia in most cities have never thought of possessing the gates. However the spirit in control of these gates rules in your city or region. In most cities, a Jezebel/political/religious spirit controls the gates within a region. Where this is the case you can usually see manipulation and control being exercised through the leadership within society and the church. Intimidation, slander, gossip, rejection of the apostolic and prophetic gifts, depression, discouragement, eunuchs, sexual immorality, disunity, drug abuse and suicide are some of the manifestations of this Jezebel/political/religious spirit.

Toleration—Revelation 2:18-29

When Jesus addressed the evil spirit Jezebel in the Church of Thyatira, He said, “But I have a few things against you: You permit that woman Jezebel” (Rev. 2:20). This spirit was operating through a woman named Jezebel. The Lord said this about her: She calls herself a prophetess as well as teaches and leads My bond servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. She is unrepentant. Sexual perversion is also manifested through this evil spirit—Jezebel.

The operation of this spirit releases a false prophetic. Tolerate is the Greek word eao. It means to leave alone or let alone. Church leaders and the church have left this spirit alone for the sake of peace. When Jehu arrived to take down Jezebel, she asked him, Is everything all right, Zimri? (2 Kings 9:31). She wanted him to make peace with her. Jehu said to the eunuchs, “Throw her down.” They threw Jezebel to the ground where Jehu’s horse trampled her under his hooves. Jehu was not going to tolerate this spirit operating in Israel any longer. Will you tolerate this evil demon in your region? 

The time is now. Let’s take this strategy to the Gates of your city. 

Strategy to Displace Jezebel in the Gates of Your City

Praise and Worship—Taking the worship team to the Gates will open the heavens to the Lord. “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him, and bless His name” (Ps. 100:4).

Code Talk—Pray in Tongues. In WWII, the Japanese could never decode the language of the Navajo. These Navajo Marines became known as the code talkers. When you code talk (pray in unknown tongues), the enemy is not able to decode your message to the Lord. 1 Corinthians 14:2 says that when a man prays in an unknown tongue, he prays to God. “But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit” (Jude 20). 

Prophesy in the Gates—Find the prophetic words the Lord has spoken over your region and decree those at the Gates. Ezekiel 37:4 says, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.” Speak to your gates, speak to your city and say, “Hear the word of the Lord.”

It is written—When Jesus defeated the enemy in the wilderness He said, “It is written,” and then quoted the Scripture. Decree the Word of God with authority over your city and gates. 

Holy Communion—Take communion at the Gates, then serve the land communion. Since I’ve been releasing the word about serving the land communion many have asked, “How do we do that?” Simply pour the wine or grape juice representing His blood into the ground and serve it in the name of Jesus. Then take the unleavened bread, representing His body and mix it into the juice or wine you just poured out. Do this as often as you do in remembrance of Jesus (1 Cor. 11:23-26).

Important! When you go to these gates do not bring accusations against Jezebel. Take a look at Jude 9, “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil in a dispute about the body of Moses, did not dare to pronounce upon him a railing judgment. But he said, ‘The Lord rebuke you!”

Just recently a group of friends from Alabama, Florida and Georgia met where the three states connect and applied the above strategies at the gate where these states connect. They had to get permission from the landowner and walk for several hundred yards into the forest. Not only did they worship at these gates but they connected the three states in the spirit. {eoa}

Ken Malone is being used by God to mobilize the body of Christ throughout Florida and the nation. After being a pastor for 24 years Ken has recently stepped down from a pastoral position. This has allowed God to launch Ken into his apostolic role within Florida and the nation. He is an ordained minister and serves as the founder of Forerunner School and Ministry Inc. and serves on the board of Dutch Sheets Ministries. He and his wife, Cheryl, travel across Florida and the nation equipping, empowering and sending out believers into the harvest. Traveling extensively throughout Florida and the nation, spiritual breakthrough in the heavens over churches, cities and regions is producing a great momentum toward an unprecedented book of Acts revival. Ken walks in a governmental apostolic mantle that releases the body of Christ into their destiny. He also ministers with a prophetic, seer anointing which enables him to identify activate and release redemptive gifts in individuals, churches and cities.
