EPERIENCING AND KNOWING HIS LOVE

by: Steven LeVine

03/17/2021

It is very important to stay focused and stay in His presence when the worship team takes us deep into silent worship. We experience just how precious that time is when the two, Jesus and you, become one, and no one is helping us   worship. Our hearts, like broken pots, are being restored and pouring out into a new deeper relationship. Some feel like "I’ve never been here before" and are swimming in new waters. Others know these waters. This is the moment that walls are br

CULTIVATING THE ATMOSPHERE OF HEAVEN

by: Steven LeVine

03/17/2021

0

When we meet we create a Tent of Meeting with God through our praise and worship. Breakthrough happens here because spiritual hindrances are not allowed. We open the floor to prophetic words, words of encouragement, psalms, visions, and any kind of word or expression from Holy Spirit. This is important because the words that proceed through us from the Father strengthen us and grow us into the people that will change the world.

The words encourage us for the now. And, they

PRAYING WITH GATE KEEPER AUTHORITY

by: Steven LeVine

03/03/2021

0

     We are GateKeepers in Washington DC, and Jesus has given us authority to bring the power of the Kingdom to the land we live in. We have authority that flows from the Kingdom of God through us. We come in that authority to take down enemies so we can live in peace.

     Our friend Rick Ridings recently released a prayer strategy for our nation and times, and we prayed along with others in our nation. The following is that prayer:

      “So Lord God Almighty, the Lord of

GIVE THANKS...... FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD

 Let this be a SEASON of THANKSGIVING where we do not focus on what we don’t have. Let us focus on what we do have.  Let this be a season where we do not focus on what we think God has not done. Let us focus on what He has done.  First Thessalonians 5:18:  “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”    Let's Celebrate Him and give thanks.  He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places and he has promised to ...

BAPTIZE US INTO YOUR POWER AND BOLDNESS

by: Steven LeVine

11/18/2020

I love the new boldness that is coming and falling on God's people. It's great to hear that the days of slumber are coming to an end. I love reading in the Acts of the Apostles about the day of Pentecost when our friend Holy Spirit came and released Power, Tongues and great Boldness. Today is no different than that day. The enemies are just as cruel, killing and destroying every life they're allowed to touch. That is why it's time to cry out for Holy Spirit to come and Bap

FOLLOWING HOLY SPIRIT

by: Steven LeVine

At every meeting of the Gate DC we are looking to follow Holy Spirit's direction. Like Abraham's servant bringing Rebekah to Isaac, Holy Spirit takes us deeper into our relationship with Jesus. At every turn in our lives, at every adventure, He is looking for an opportunity to bring us into the dance that changes us. As we are changed we are filled with a new expectation to know Jesus better, face to face and breath to breath.As our expectation to see our beloved increases...

WHO AM I IN CHRIST?

     According to the Bible, You are God’s possession, You are  His child,  You are His workmanship. 

     You are His friend, His temple, His vessel, You are a              co-laborer, and His witness.

     You are a soldier, an ambassador and a building, a temple.

     You’re His husbandry. You’re a minister and an instrument.

     You’re His chosen, His beloved, His precious jewel, and His heritage.

      In Christ, you have been redeemed by blood, set free from sin, set fre

PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD AND STAND YOUR GROUND

by: Steven LeVine

09/11/2020

0

I was thinking about the preaching and teaching I’ve heard about the whole armor of God and how the purpose for the armor is rarely discussed. We tend to get ready, polish our armor but never go to battle. Hearing the armor teaching is not enough, it takes going to war to see how awesome Jesus is as He saves, heals and delivers the world from the works of the enemy.

 Our warfare looks different because so much of it is Spiritual. No one holds his sword out and yells, “Attac

OVERCOMING EVIL IN HIS LOVE

by: Steven LeVine

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and release mankind from his influence. Now Jesus continues to release the Kingdom accomplishing the same purpose through His children: children who the world is not worthy of, children that are called by Him for this time, children like us who are full of the grace, mercy and the saving power of God.

 When Jesus was baptized by John, the Father spoke these amazing words, “This is the Son I love, and my greatest delight is in him

Revelation, Faith and Power

“Two weeks ago as I was praying, God gave me a vision and said it was a continuation of a word He’d given me at the beginning of the year, when we gathered to see what the Lord would say concerning the Gate, DC for 2020.  In the vision, I was taken up into the air and I could see below to a plane of land.  Then three swords came out of Heaven and embedded into that plane of land.  On the first sword was written the word “Revelation”     

 On the second sword the word “Faith

BATTLES ARE WON IN THE GLORY

by: David Ruleman

08/11/2020

0

We can either hide from the enemy, stand and wait for the enemy to attack us, or pursue the enemy and take the fight to him. Paul tells us that our fight is not with flesh and blood but that our true enemies are authorities, cosmic powers over this present darkness, and the spiritual forces of evil that are in the heavenly places. We battle on two fronts. We show the Love of God in weakness that we might win some, and on another front we fight the battle that is waged in t

CHOSEN FOR WARFARE

by: Steven LeVine

07/25/2020

0

Several years ago Jesus started talking to me about warfare. He said, “Many are prophesying it’s time to prepare for war, but I say the war has already come.” We know that the strategies of the those who are evil have put their strategies in place and are being worked out, hence war has already come. We see it in the streets. We hear it on the news.  It’s brought to the forefront of our thinking every time we walk into a store, and they demand that we wear a mask. The warf

When Opinions Are Irrelevant

Had an encounter with the Lord tonight at The Gate..  He had me glued to the chair after worship and all during the rest of the meeting.  

I could have forced myself to get up, but who would want to do that?!

First, I saw the silhouette of a man standing on a shore. Ahead of him was a vast ocean. His hands were open and his palms were facing the ocean. On the horizon was a huge ball of light.

At first, I wanted to think it was the sun, or even the Son.  The fireball got large

Vision For Pentecost 2020

by: Dr. Deborah Jenks

We are hearing this is the start of a new Era or Age. Nancy Coen is calling it a global reset of every entity, Lana Vawser is calling it a new Era of His Majesty, and Rick Ridings is calling it the bringing down of evil structures.

In the first vision, I saw what I knew to be a bowl of incense filled with the prayers of the saints. When I think of a bowl of incense, I think of something shallow and wide. What I saw looked like a tall and deep vase of green translucent glass
