Focus: Amos 4:13 - KJV
13. For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.
One of the definitions of the word host is an army. A lord is someone or something having power, authority or influence. In the world, there are various realms with each realm governed or manned by hosts. Each host has its lord reigning over them, just like we say, the commandant of the army. Now, of all the hosts, there is a supreme commander and He is called the Lord of hosts. This Lord of Hosts has influence, power and authority over the hosts in every realm. Hence, when His presence is announced in any realm, the host there, salutes by bending their knees to Him. This Lord of hosts is the Almighty God, the one whom we serve. Wherever He makes His presence, gates and everlasting doors are lifted. They were lifted for Daniel when the prince (commander of the host) of the kingdom of Persia waylaid the angel bearing answers to his petition; for Paul and Silas as well as Peter when they were imprisoned. Also, the hosts of hell and fire lifted their gate for the Hebrew boys in the lake of fire to come out unhurt.
The hosts in every realm recognize the Lord of Hosts anytime He makes an entry. This Lord of Hosts indwell men who are born again by His Spirit. At the announcement of His presence or appearance, all knees should bow. When Jesus got to the tomb of Lazarus, as the Chief of those born of the Spirit, the everlasting doors of death were lifted for His sake and Lazarus came out, alive. The same happened for Peter in the case of Dorcas. When there was a storm on the sea and Jesus appeared bearing in Himself the Lord of Hosts, He commanded the host to be quiet and the gates were lifted such that the storm stilled. Recall the great and mighty fetes of the disciples recorded in scriptures. Their carrying in them the Lord of Hosts made it possible. For those who do not so carry Him, the hosts, in the various realms, treat as they will, and that is why some get sick unto death and others are denied fruitfulness whether in the body or in business and so on. If only they can carry in them the Lord of Hosts. Remember the sons of Sceva: the host refused to lift the gates for them because they could not find the Lord of hosts inside them.
Beloved, we also can have the hosts bow to our requests by commanding them to lift up the everlasting doors they guard for the King of glory, who is resident in us to come in. The reason the Christian who is born again but remain in bondage is so, is because he fails to activate the authority of the King of glory who is the Lord of Hosts that resides in him. If we will all begin to pay attention to this fact and activate the power in us to command the hosts for our goodness, then shall we begin to operate properly in the largesse of God, who is the Lord of Hosts.
SOLUTION: Command the gates manned by the hosts in every realm to be lifted for your sake from today and start taking benefit of being on the side of their Supreme Commander.
Please pray: Father, I come in your name and command every gate blocking access to my prosperity, divine health provisions, fruitfulness and all-round success to be lifted up now, in Jesus’ name.
