About Gates and the Orphan Spirit

Nations will see your righteousness and all kings, your glory. You will be called by a new name that the Lord’s mouth will …

Gatekeepers pay attention!

A lot of the conversations these days has been about our personal responsibility and the functions that reflect it.

No longer the 'one-man show' but taking back the …
