The Year of the Door (Nov., 2023)
This is the year 5784 on the Greek calendar which means “The Year of the Door.” I understand that these doors are automatic doors. They will accommodate coming and going. With all that is going on in Israel, how could this be? I certainly do not know, but the Lord does. We saw the Six-day War in June 1967. There were many miracles in that war that allowed Israel to walk through the door of victory. I say, “Father, in Jesus’ name, may it happen again.”
We are watching Israel, and we should also watch the church. There are certainly parallels between Israel and the church. Could it be that we, too, will experience “Open Doors”? Jesus said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved (will experience life, freedom, and satisfaction), and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” You can see that walking through God’s doors will give satisfaction. How powerful is that?
Paul said in First Corinthians 16:9 (Passion Bible), “There’s an amazing (effectual) door of opportunity standing wide open for me to minister here, even though there are many who oppose and stand against me.” I can surely tell you that we, too, may have open doors to us to do the work of ministry, but the enemies of God will attempt to stop us. What do we do? Psalms 100:4 says, “Enter into his gates (doors) with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” How do we walk through the amazing (effectual) doors that are set before us? We enter through them with thanksgiving and praise to our great God. I am concerned that too many of God’s children just stand and look at the doors and think, “I can’t do that. It is too hard.” Be sure to know that your enemies will remind you of that over and over in an attempt to keep you from entering into God’s open doors that are found in the Door, Jesus. Begin thanking and praising the Lord and watch our God lead you right through.
Jesus is worthy of our worship, praise, and thanksgiving. “Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude (thanksgiving). Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ (Phil. 4:6&7 Passion). It is time that the Church rise up in peace and in His anointing and power.
