The Horse Gate

Nehemiah 3:28 From above the horse gate repaired the priests, every one over against his house.

Our God is the mighty God in battle, and we are His weapons. The horse gate speaks of warfare as horses were used in battle and became a symbol of war.

Revelation 19:11 ‘I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does He judge and make war.’

There is no escaping the reality of warfare whether at home, in the Church or in the boardroom or careers. You will need to know and apply strategies of war … and there are times to match only with the spiritual strength and force of a horse. There are two kingdoms even in business, the kingdom of heaven and satan’s … pray before you enter meetings and be covered in the blood of Jesus … your weapons however are not carnal and so your legal advantage may not matter … Go higher into the spiritual realm and pull down wicked strongholds opposing your divinely ordained advance. Be strong also in the Lord.

Jer_51:20 Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

A sense of victory in war is important – soon you will identify powerful forces opposing you. The weapons of the enemy include fear, discouragement, accusation and intimidation … but you can hold to your ground …solid ground, Jesus … knowing all other grounds are shifting sands.

The Water Gate

Nehemiah 3:26 Moreover the Nethinims dwelt in Ophel, unto the place over against the water gate toward the east, and the tower that lieth out.

The next gate mentioned is the water gate. The water gate is a picture of the word of God and its refreshing and critical role for the Christian life.

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Psa 119:9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

We are made clean when our ways please God. The water gate is close to the fountain gate …the Holy Spirit is the fountain of Christian life. But it works with the word of God. The Holy Spirit makes the word of God alive to us personally, allowing cleansing, encouragement and direction to take place in our life. When did you last study the word of God, meditating on its comfort and corrections. Did you sense the inner relief and cleansing that brings peace to your soul? Pay attention to the word of God, taking care not to be found straying from its teachings.

Verses for further meditation
1 Peter 3:17; Phil 2:15

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Leaders are constrained by values and boundaries they have elected not to cross. The end does not justify the means.

Suggestions for Prayer
O Lord, may your word always be a lamp unto my feet. Amen
