Today, I want to share a word from Bill Yount with you. I believe this word applies to us personally, as well as our cities and states and our nation.

Murmuring And Complaining Were Putting Locks On The Gates Of Our Cities Including “Washington, D.C.”

In the Spirit I saw the King of Glory standing just outside the gate of many strategic cities in our nation and abroad. He was ready to come in through the gates with power and authority. But He could not. I then noticed on the inside of the gates were huge locks with words written on them –

“Murmuring and Complaining”.

I sensed the Spirit saying, “murmuring and complaining” coming from God’s People has put a lock on the front gate of many cities, keeping the King of Glory from entering in.

I heard the King of Glory saying as He stood in front of the gate…”Through their murmuring and complaining My people are saying, “God is not able to meet our needs – let alone save our city!

Complaining and murmuring is really unbelief at its worst! If I came through the gates of many cities now, My hands would still be tied by unbelief in many hearts of My people. I could not do much. My Glory inside of cities would soon fade because of unbelief. My Son faced the same problem when He entered His own hometown where people knew Him best but He could not do many miracles because of their unbelief! ”

Once again faith is locked outside the gates of many cities wanting in and fear takes a city to prison.

I sensed the Lord saying. “My people must start believing now that I can save them and their city before I come in or their unbelief and doubt will stop Me when I do come in.”

In the Spirit I saw a key that would fit the lock that murmuring and complaining had put on the gates. The key had the word “Thanksgiving” engraved on it. I heard the King of Glory say. “If My people will repent from the unbelief and draw nigh to Me and begin to enter My gates with “thanksgiving”, I will enter their gates with Glory and great Power!

They must start right where they are at and begin to thank Me that they are anywhere on this earth alive! I have spared their lives to praise and worship Me in this last hour for their giving of thanks and praise and worship will become My strong habitation among them as I fight their battles through the weapon of worship! “In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” You must trust Me on this command.

As I began to hear a Spirit of thankfulness rise up out of God’s people in cities around the earth, I saw the key of “thanksgiving” turning the lock on city gates and demonic powers fleeing as the King of Glory took a giant step through the gates to inhabit the praises of His people. Filling His people on the inside with His very self He began to rise up within them and began to loose whole cities through them as they then began to send Judah ( praise ) first!

God was now entering the gates of our cities through thanksgiving in our hearts and entering our courts (dwelling places) through our praise to Him. We had become terrorists to the devil through our worship which is the highest form of warfare.

A great cloud of witnesses on high seemed to be joining in with angelic choirs singing, “Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him!” Psalm 68:1 (NKJV)

“And Oh sing you desolate cities for you shall be inhabited!”

“Your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.” Isaiah 54:3 (NIV)

I believe this word applies to our personal lives, cities, and states, so I ask…Is there any area of your life where you need God to come into, yet you have a lock on the gate through murmuring and complaining? Has murmuring and complaining stopped the glory of God from coming into that situation? If so, you can change it today. Instead of negative talk, instead of complaining, begin to thank God.

Remember these words. I heard the King of Glory say. “If My people will repent from the unbelief and draw nigh to Me and begin to enter My gates with “thanksgiving”, I will enter their gates with Glory and great Power! It’s time for God to enter your situation with His glory and power – allow Him that access through thanksgiving today.
