God opens door

Dr. James Arekion

 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia writes; These things say he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name."_cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Rev. 3:6-8

 

When God opens door, no man or devil can shut. This demonstrates the sovereignty of God!

It's a spiritual door granting us access to a new level, new dimension, promotion, increase...

 

Three things that church believed in and held on to:

1. The Word of Jesus Christ

They held onto the Revelation about The Word. 

As a disciple of Jesus, they kept the Word (John 8:36)

 

2. Not denied the name of Jesus

The Lordship of Jesus. Obviously Jesus was their Lord and the one they worshipped.

Today there is not a spirit of anti-god but anti-Christ 

There is only ONE way to God - Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (Jn. 14:6)

 

3. The Patience of Jesus

Perseverance & patience (as Jesus) in times of adversity

God allows us to go through certain things. 

At times He provides an "Escape" (deliverance) route and at times He allows us to "Endure" (discipline)

 

Doors:

Doors can be PULLED (spiritual attraction) towards you or can be PUSHED (spiritual effort).

 

Communion with God through prayer and the Word helps us to know and discern the doors which God opens. Prayer is the PULLING and the PUSHING in the spiritual realm. 

Faith in the Word of God - Faith in the name of Jesus and the power twins of Faith and Patience (perseverance) takes us through every circumstance in life.

Faith opens the door and patience (perseverance) keeps the door open!

 

Different types of doors:

 

A) Door of revelation and instruction - Rev. 4:1

B) Doors of faith - 1 Cor. 16:9

C) Doors of utterance - Col. 4:3

D) Doors of ministry - 2 Cor. 2:12

E) Doors of opportunity - Rev. 3:6-8

 

3 ways to know an OPEN DOOR is from God:

  • The Door that God Opens Will Never Contradict His Word

  • The Door that God Opens Will be Accompanied by Confirmation 

  • The Door God Opens Will Require You to Depend on Him
