Welcome to Gateway Worship Center
Dear Friends of Going Up to High
Places and Gateway
I greet you in the Name of Jesus!
I trust that all is well with you and your church and city.
Be encouraged to keep standing on the wall and interceding. There are
changes occurring with every prayer you pray. One of these days God is
going to honor all that has been asked of Him for the Harvest, which is His
heart. We think that we need to pray to somehow stir and
convince God to do something about what we care about, our city and it's
souls. Really it is the reverse: Prayer is for our benefit because
it keeps us focused on God's heart long enough to be convinced about it enough
to begin doing something about it. The prayers for the Harvest must
motivate us to action as well. Prayer must keep on being a central focus
and call that we will always do, but there is a time to also
transition the words into action, on our part. We just keep
sitting and waiting for God to do something. He is asking us, "Do
you feel my heart enough to be moved with compassion and do something about
This is a time for all of us to be checking the motives of our
hearts and ask ourselves why we want to have the power and glory of God to
come down upon us. We tend to be glory hogs, get it and keep it to
ourselves, and not share with the world the wonderful Jesus that has
transformed us. A lady asked me this Sunday, "What do I say when I
meet one who is destitute and hurting? I just don't know what to
say." My answer is, "Let me introduce you to my Friend.
I want to tell you what He has done for me. I want to let you know how
much He loves you and desire to have you as His friend. He has so much
that He wants to and can do for you if you will open your heart's door and
give Him a chance. His name is Jesus." What we have
experienced in transformation should be able to be shared so that others have
hope for transformation also. Our testimony is a powerful tool.
Jesus went into the crowds and just simply met people who had
needs, which He met. He had His place of sweet communion with His Father
and learned there about His Father's heart towards humanity, and went about
doing what He saw His Father do and saying what He heard His Father say.
He became an imitator of His Father who expressed His heart to Jesus during
those times of intimacy. From that place he went out into the highways
and byways and hedges and compelled them. We need our places of Glory
and basking in the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but it should
so compel us that we too go out, doing the works of Him who has sent us.
"As my Father has sent Me, even so send I you."
We need to keep praying so that we will never
forget the focus of the prayers and warfare, which is, "It's all
about you Jesus." If we cease praying, the fire will grow
cold and the harvest will die because we have no passion for going,
passion which is being birthed into our spirits through prayer and intimacy
Be encourage today to keep on pressing in.
We are almost there! A great cloud of witnesses are
gone on before us who would love to have experienced the hour that we live in.
The fact is, we are chosen for this hour. What a privilege to be a part
of the Move of God today. One such as the world has never seen is about to
unfold right before our eyes.
Included are some prayer motivators that may be helpful to you.
God Bless each of you. Please feel free to share this or forward it to
others who may be encouraged by by these words to stay faithful in this hour.
