Matthew 16:18(KJV); And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
The advancement of the church of Christ is against the gates of hell.
Our advance on them is an advance of knowledge and revelation.
It is for this reason that Christ’s declaration about our ordained victory came after Peter received the revelation from the father about who Christ is( Matthew 16:16).
Paul bore this testimony in his life of ministry. The Bible reveals that there were beasts at Ephesus(1 Corinthians 15:32). This means that there was all manner of demonic activity.
However, the Bible says that while he was there, the Word mightily grew and they prevailed.
As the body of Christ is built and grows in the revelation of the Christ, the gates of hell will not be able to withstand its advance.
By knowledge, the church is reclaiming territory that has been overtaken by the enemy through the paradigm of ignorance.
We are occupying political territory, financial territory, media territory and all other territories to the glory of God.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I am thankful for this great Word. Greater is He that is in me than the devil in the world. I am more than a conqueror through Christ who strengthens me. I stand in the confidence that my victory against the gates of hell is guaranteed because I am immersed in the revelation of Christ and the knowledge of God. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
