“Dominion at the Gate”

Everything underlined is illustrated in the painting

There has never been a more exciting time in Church history than at this very moment. There has never been a people that were better equipped to meet the challenges and to win the victory that God has ordained for the present, than this chosen generation. God has anointed us in this season of new beginnings to go through every gate that forms before us. God is setting us up for promotion but He first has to cut some things away, so that we are better able to align with His purposes. He is releasing to us a greater grace for a new seat of authority in Him. With the Issachar anointing, we know how to discern these times and how to prosper in this new place and in this new year. Although God is speeding things up we are gaining the momentum that we need to keep in step with Him. It’s time to run with the horses and to “suddenly” cross over into our land of milk and honey. His prophetic word to us is that “our end will be far greater than our beginning.”
This is the year 5768 according to the Jewish calendar. 57 means “may this be the year of.” The number 6 is the samech, which means that “it is a year of coming full circle, breaking up and breaking out.” The number 8 is the chet which pictures a “crowned gate” in its form. The prophetic message that the Lord is speaking through the Hebrew calendar this year is that we break through every gate, every iron bar, and every blockade, that the enemy tries to erect before us. God is releasing the “kingly anointing” to accomplish through His church, the same mighty feats that He did through King Cyrus.

Isaiah 45:1 THUS SAYS the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held to subdue nations before him, and I will unarm and ungird the loins of kings to open doors before him, so that gates will not be shut. 2 I will go before you and level the mountains [to make the crooked places straight]; I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut asunder the bars of iron. 3 And I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you by your name.

We must also come into a stronger alliance with Israel this season.

2 Chronicles 36: 22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing: 23 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord, the God of heaven, has given me, and He has charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all His people, may the Lord his God be with him, and let him go up [to Jerusalem].

Listen to the decrees in heaven being spoken over Israel and sound them on earth this year. Be stirred up by the words of the prophets to build a house in Jerusalem, a dwelling place made up of lively stones; Jew and gentile as one new man being made a habitation for God.
The gate represents a place where the king’s authority was implemented, issues of culture, commerce, and military strategies were decided, and judicial renderings were released. In this painting “Dominion at the Gate,” the bride is positioned at the gate with 8 keys in her hand. Jesus, having already opened the gates of heaven, has given her and anointing to unlock the gates of earth, in order to establish His “kingly anointing.” With the keys in one hand and Holy Spirit in the form of a dove resting on the other, she has been given greater power to bind and loose the things that are, and have already been bound and loosed in heaven.

Mathew 16: 18 And I tell you, you are Peter [Greek, Petros--a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra--a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it]. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.

Jesus prophesied in this scripture that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. With every gate the enemy puts before us, we will have the key to open it providing us an escape route. The 8 keys also denote new revelation being unlocked (see Jeremiah 33: 3).
Isaiah 22 describes the key of David pictured in the painting.

22 And the key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open.

This authority is activated and released when the true government of God is in place and the one new man is manifested. When His kingdom order is established, the gates for us will never be shut.( see Revelation 21:25)
This is the year of the apostle and of apostolic reformation. Greater wisdom is being released revealing divine strategies that will show us how to advance the Kingdom of God, to fulfill our dominion mandate to possess the seven mountains of our culture and to subdue God’s enemies, making earth His footstool. This will begin to accelerate as new apostolic networks are linked to transform cities. New authority is being released as God’s governmental structure is established. The angels are in place to contend for us in this societal revolution. The fire of God is surrounding our cities just the way He said that He would surround Jerusalem. As leadership is aligned from city to city, God is going to release His fire from territory to territory until it overtakes this nation.
8 doves represent a new dimension of Holy Spirit being poured out, bringing greater power and release of the gifts of the spirit (see 1 Corinthians 12). This season marks the beginning of increase and amplification of the spiritual gifts that will be so huge in scope and far reaching, so specific and accurate that it will cause an evangelism explosion. It is a set time for ingathering. Chet also means that it is a Feast of Tabernacles year, which the Feast of Ingathering is a part of. It is a time of celebration of the fruit harvest, the finial harvest of the year. Every seventh year at this feast the book of the Law was taken from the ark of the covenant by the Levites, opened , read and explained to the people. God is releasing third heaven revelation in His Word, and highlighting prophetic teachers to bring it forth with an impartation to bring transformation (see Jeremiah 33:1).
The booths that the Israelites constructed during the Feast of Tabernacles spoke of temporary dwellings in route to their permanent place, the Promised Land. We are in such a place; a sparse stopover on the way to our full inheritance in this time of new beginnings. The huppah in the painting is the place where the marriage ceremony is preformed and it represents the new home to which the bridegroom will take his bride. It is a gateway to a new future, a new level of intimacy and a time of renewed passion. Sometimes a tallit was held over the couple as a type of the wedding canopy. The huppah has 4 open sides and symbolizes the hospitality of the Jewish home, and is patterned after the hospitality of father Abraham. It was to be constructed outside under the stars to remind the couple of Abraham’s promise of blessing and multiplication. This covenant gate reminds us that it is a time to renew our eternal commitment to the Lord.
As we, in the spirit, signed a decree of divorced from the spirit of Baal and dissolved our partnership with the principality of mammon, we have come out of an ungodly alignment with all that Baal and his names represent.

Deuteronomy 8: 18 But you shall [earnestly] remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

This is a now word to meditate on, as is also the warning that follows in verse

19. And if you forget the Lord your God and walk after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish.
The Lion, the bull, and the bear symbolize what God is doing in our economy. The church is not subject to the dictates of Wall Street. Whether it is a bull or a bear market, or whether stock market trading is up or down is insignificant in God’s economy. The Lion of Judah will establish His own market and triumph over the world system of finance. As we echo back to heaven His mighty roar we will have dominion over this mountain and He will have His lion’s share. The transfer of wealth is at hand.
The Day of Trumpets, which begins the Feast of Tabernacles, is a Sabbath rest day. The wing of the Lord in the painting represents the rest of abiding under the shadow of His wing. In the mist of conflict this year, cease from the works of the flesh and of the law, for Christ is our Sabbath rest.
The eagle is a symbol of strength and renewal to overcome the adversity of the storms that we will encounter this season. God is saying “Don’t let circumstances keep you earth bound, catch the wind of my Spirit and let it lift you. I am bringing you a fresh gust of wind to refresh you and take you to a higher altitude. I am giving you new vision to see and grasp hold of your provision, your eagle eyes will see and understand the enemy’s next move and you will have the stealth and accuracy to take him out.” Job 9:26 speaks of the eagle symbolizing the hastening of days.
The new wine skin is an important element this season. To receive the new revelation that God wants to download we have to stay “renewed in the spirit of our minds.” We can’t step back into old religious mindsets, legalism, negative emotions, or even the previous move of God with last season’s music. We have to stay open to Holy Spirit for quick change. We must transition into the new to sing a new song.
In this time of 8’s we must worship in a new way to break into what God has for us. It is a time of celebration as in the feast days in Israel. Praise, leap, dance, and run into the new this year. The Harp, flute, lyre, symbols, and tambourine represent that celebration as we focus on the awesomeness of the living God. All of creation praises Him. Even the stars and planets have a song of worship to the most high. (see Job 38: 7, Ps. 138:3)
This is a year of the full circle of life, the completed cycle, and a new beginning. Life is a “chet” word. In Hebrew it means to live prosperously, move from discouragement into joy, from sickness to health, to grow, to increase, to restore to life, and to revive. The tree of life gives us access to God’s goodness and blessing. This is a year for miracles signs and wonders to increase. We can expect “life and that more abundantly.”
Circling the tree of life are the 7 species of the land of Israel listed in Deuteronomy 8. They are; wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates (honey). These 7 are the only fruits which can be given as a first fruit offering during the Feast of Pentecost. The Israelites had to be totally dependent on God to control the extreme weather conditions during their growing season, and they were warned not to rely on other gods for their harvest. The full circle here of the 7 species depicts “no lack,” because of their complete devotion and total dependence on Almighty God, and the forsaking of all other gods. As they give of their finest quality of fruit, the Lord continues this unbroken cycle of blessing, and the destroyer is diverted.
The gold crown is embellished with 12 stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel. They radiate the light and the glory of God as they shine through the end time Church of Jesus Christ. These living stones with their 12 hues of the color spectrum are the jewels in the crown of our sovereign King and illustrate the many facets of His character bringing light, color, and creativity to a dark, void, and formless world.
The red “I AM” banner draped over the cross represents all that He is to us and in us and all that we are in Him.
The almond branch, the olive tree, and the pomegranate are symbolic of the Alfa and the Omega. The almond tree blooms first in Israel, the pomegranate blooms last, and the olive tree connects them. They denote the blossoming forth of a new beginning and the hastening of the time of fruitfulness. The three together symbolize a completed cycle of God’s purposes being accomplished this season. They are an example of the acceleration that we will experience this year.
Inside the breastplate of the high priest and next to his heart were placed the urim and the thummun. They were used to determine the guilt or innocence of a person. Urim means lights and thummun perfections. Only the high priest could read the verdict of judgment, in the Holly of Holies before the Arc of the Covenant. These stones of judgment in the Old Testament are type and shadow of The Spirit and The Word of the New and better covenant where everything is judged by the Word of God as illuminated by the Spirit of God.

Micah 2: 13 The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head.

“Dominion at the Gate,” illustrates that the Lion of Judah has broken through, to make a way for His beloved. It is our time to break through, break out and break into all that God has for us. We must break into a time of new hope for the new season. The white buffalo pictured is a symbol of restoration. To Native Americans it has always been a sacred sign of the renewal of the land, hope being restored to the tribe’s and peace to all people groups. It represents provision for the new season. A white female buffalo calf was born in 2007 in Oklahoma; an extremely rare occurrence. This is the first to survive since the 1830’s. God is doing an amazing work of reconciliation, healing and restoration in regard to the First Nations People. He has raised up Apostles and Prophets among their tribes and has brought them, through covenant relationships, into the heart of the Apostolic Reformation.
The Jerusalem Gate featured in the painting is the Lion’s Gate; also called St Stephen’s Gate. There are 4 lions etched into this gate, and after hearing Prophet Chuck Pierce’s word that “on every gate there is a name and a word.” The Lord revealed to me that the name inscribed on this gate, is Lion of Judah, and the word on it is the prophecy given in Genesis 49: 8-12 spoken over the Tribe of Judah.

8 Judah, you are the one whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons shall bow down to you.
9Judah, a lion's cub! With the prey, my son, you have gone high up [the mountain]. He stooped down, he crouched like a lion, and like a lioness--who dares provoke and rouse him?
10 The scepter or leadership shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh [the Messiah, the Peaceful One] comes to Whom it belongs, and to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
11Binding His foal to the vine and His donkey's colt to the choice vine, He washes His garments in wine and His clothes in the blood of grapes.
12His eyes are darker and more sparkling than wine, and His teeth whiter than milk.

As the Bride stands at this gate she exercises the legal right and authority given to her by the King to release His name, His character, and His prophetic word into the atmosphere in order to expand the manifestation of the glory of the Lord into all the earth.

“Dominion at the Gate” was created at “The Starting the Year Off Right” conference in Denton, TX, an annual event hosted by Prophet Chuck Pierce and Glory of Zion International Ministries.
