The Power of the Dung

Calvary Life Family Worship Center

Pastor John tells the story of the three gates in Nehemiah 1-3, the Dung gate, Valley gate and the Fountain gate and relates it to our Daniel fast. Entering the city of Jerusalem, the gates lead to the center of the city. Passing the Dung gate, we dump our refuse much like we fast and pray to be cleansed of sin known and hidden. We pass through the Valley gate with a good view of the lay of the land much as we ask God for direction to navigate our future. We pass through Fountain gate with its fresh water to be cleansed. Pastor John focused alot on the Dung gate with the point to dump or detox in 3 areas: heart, mind and soul so we don’t carry our past ‘crap’ into our future.
