Open Doors No Man Can Shut — Prophet Tony Mathias

walking-through-open-doorWhile approaching the entrance of a mall, glass doors that were shut opened on their own. I stood at that spot and the doors remained open. It got me thinking. If I had stayed a few feet away, those glass doors would remain shut.

Revelation 3:8. “See I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.” God has opened for us doors that were shut and locked which remain open, because His favor rests on us. All we need to do is walk by faith and not by sight as we approach these doors in our lives. As God’s children, it is our birthright to walk in God’s favor.

The key is confession – “What you say is what you get.” Doors open when you always believe and confess that you’re walking in the favor of God. In fact, your positive confession is your faith in action. Favor is God’s grace, His free gift making room for you Proverbs 18:16. Grace is God doing for you what you cannot do. Eg. “By grace ye are saved” – we couldn’t save ourselves, God’s grace did it. By walking in God’s favor, you have special privileges.

Many are not walking in the favor of God because of negative confession; dwelling in the past rehearsing hurtful feelings, mistakes, failures, wrong relationships and so on. That is why many are sick, depressed insecure. They have not understood the power of repentance and forgiveness to wipe out unpleasant memories. Christianity is based on the law of forgiveness and an empty tomb.

All of us have had some bad past – disappointments, failures, mistakes, wrong relationships, missed opportunities, sin, guilt, and sadness. If we dwell on it, it will repeat itself; we will be robbed of our present enjoyment and future fulfillment. We will lose self-confidence. We will never dream big. We will never start anything new or give up half way. We will get bitter instead of better, sick depressed unhappy and others will get sick of us. We will doubt God and his power.

forgetthethingsofthepastTherefore God says – “Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” Isaiah 43:18-19 – When God determines your future He does not consult your past. Yesterday is history, tomorrow mystery, let not today be pastry!

Jacob deceived others [that was the meaning of his name] and got deceived by others. Genesis 32. God gave him an overhaul changed his name to ‘Israel’ which means ‘Over-comer.’ He did not dwell on his past. He obeyed God and changed his name thereby changing his world. The utterance of his new name changed made him an over-comer – dishonest to honest, lying to truthfulness.

Zacchaeus a greedy tax collector welcomed Jesus the Word of God at his house with genuine repentance Luke 19 – did not go back to his past; turned from cheater to benefactor [generous]; sinner to saint launched into his future as bishop.

Mary Magdalene a well-known prostitute, the last to leave the cross the first to announce the resurrection; changed her future dishonor to honor; sinner to saint by forsaking her past by embracing the Living Word [Christ] – Matthew 27 & 28.

Abraham Lincoln lost several elections but kept trying; born in poverty; did not look to his past; traveled from rags to riches, poverty to affluence ended as President of USA.

What God has done for us He will do for you? Do not dwell on your past. It is all under the Blood! God can turn your mess into a miracle, give you a new beginning. Arise shine…

Psalm 103:2 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not His benefits.”

There are a number of benefits of walking in the favor of God: Lay hold of His promises.

God’s favor brings wealth. He can even give you favor in purchase of land. Deuteronomy 8:7-9, 33:23; Psalms 24:1

God’s favor can bring promotion and recognition – Joseph had problems yet rose from pit to the palace by the favor of God 1 Samuel 16. God’s favor can bring you recognition and promotion despite problems.

For many memory of the past ruins their future. Don’t let your thinking of the past ruin your future whether poverty, insecurities, old mindset, or whatever. It is like driving a car forward with the foot on the brake. You need to ordain you good future, by the words of your mouth – if you take pains to find it in His Word. Say what God says. He says: The plans I have for you are for good and not for evil to give you a good future Jeremiah 29:11.

God wants us to stop dwelling on our past for He is doing new things. What then can we do?

A] Close the door to your past: Learn from it and then forget it.
Believe declare and act like you’re free – and you will!

B] Launch through the open door the future God has for you.
Find and complete God’s assignment for you by Communing with Him and Confirming it.

Be encouraged – The Door God that has opened for you no man can shut!

Prophetic Destiny — Prophet Tony Mathias

Many Christians are unaware that deep down at the core of their beings is a destiny – implant. They go through life doing their own thing even though it may not be expected of them. They are quick to blame God when everything falls apart. Neither is God the source of their problems, nor the devil. It is self-centeredness that leads to grief. God has a specific predetermined destiny for each person. Jeremiah 29:11. He gave man authority to choose and decide yet He desires it would be done through His guidance. We open the door to tragedies when we exalt our own wisdom above God’s wisdom, trusting and leaning on our own understanding. Proverbs 3:5.

decisionDecisions determine destiny. Decisions move you closer to your God ordained destiny or away from it. You can catch a flight or miss a flight. Who wants disappointment, and delay that accompanies a missed connection? Make a quality decision to find your God-given destiny today! It is you and you alone who needs to discover it. When you are on a road trip, those ahead of you can give valuable information – road blocks ahead, alternate routes, accommodations restaurants available and so on. You would be wise to draw from their insights. But decisions, you have to make!

Every one of us has a God-ordained destiny even designed to touch others as no man is an island. We are carrying other people’s miracles. Most don’t intentionally decide to miss their destinies, but are too busy with their mundane routine.

Are you certain that the decisions you make daily are what God wants you to make?

Your life is the result of the choices you make which can be hindered or influenced by others. Your choices determine your destiny. It is never too late to make the right choices. If you ignore them you will soon find you are getting more aged and losing your zeal for life.

One of the greatest choices and decision you can make is to make Jesus your Lord and Savior, find His plan for you and pursue it. The study of God’s Word could be the one most influential force on your decisions. God’s Word is a light to your path Psalms 119:105 that causes you to be debt free, blessed and a blessing to others. Decisions determine destiny, but make sure they are based on the truth of God’s Word which will change your life. “You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” God’s Word is truth.dowhatneedstobedone

Will you choose to seek God’s destiny for your life and pursue it, or insist on doing your own thing, leaning on your own understanding? – God made you with a purpose and you have only one life to fulfill it. Unless you realize you have a destiny and seek God for it, you will never reach your full potential despite your talents abilities and gifts. But when you find it you will hear the Lord say: “Go do all that is thine heart; for the Lord is with thee.” 2  Samuel 7:3 – So discover that destiny–implant, embedded in your spirit.
Do what needs to be done.

Prophet Jeremiah and the Apostle Paul knew that God had a predetermined plan for them, where their talents abilities, gifts would be used to implement that plan Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 1:15. Likewise, God created you for a destined purpose with talents abilities gifts to fulfill the need. It first begins with knowing His will and depending on Him. Ephesians 5:17; Jeremiah 10:23. You can’t find your destiny accidentally; you will need to seek find and fulfill it.

If a company hired people without job descriptions for anyone there would be chaos. Without direction from God, people would find themselves unfulfilled, unproductive, with self-inflicted problems. Though God has a destiny for you to fulfill which is for good and not for evil, Satan wants to kill, steal, and destroy that plan. Jeremiah 29:11; John 10:10. If your life is a mess, it means you have not followed His plan, yet, His destiny or expected end for you hasn’t changed. God can put you back on course. You were not an accident. God knew you before you were born Jeremiah 1:4-5. Everything about you was created by God inclusive of gifts, talents, looks, race, and location to fulfill your destiny. And the important ingredient ‘supernatural anointing ability’ for fulfillment comes alongside provided you obey His leading. It is in seeking His kingdom doing His will that blessings flow. Matthew 6:33

A unique way to create awareness of God’s destiny comes through rhema, keys of revelation, prophetic words spoken over you by self or others. They may come in manifold ways – through a prophet, dream, vision, illumined scriptures, television broadcast and so on. You need to know how to make them come true so that there is not much delay.

These keys are given by the Lord to unlock heaven and release your destiny. Simon (Peter) was given a prophetic key in reply to Jesus’ question – “Who do you say I am?” He answered – “You are the Messiah the Son of the living God.” Jesus next explains to him that this revelation came to him from His Father – a change of name to Peter [rock – revelation] would further release revelations [keys] in building His Kingdom – Simon birthed this Word by receiving it and obeying its direction. He changed his name to Peter in obedience. Man builds his home with bricks and stone…God builds his Kingdom, His Church on revelation – ‘on this rock I will build My church’ – specific word [rhema] to Peter. Jesus goes on tell him: ‘I have given you the keys to the kingdom.’ Matthew 16:15-19;

You too may also have received divine inspiration. Through that prophetic destiny key you can with the help of the Holy Spirit unlock heaven and release your destiny, call things revealed to you into existence, uproot pull down opposition to its fulfillment, build plant, loose, birth manifest Jeremiah 1:10. Expect God to give you wisdom in properly using these keys.

Daniel had a revelation while reading the book of Jeremiah that he was about to come out of Babylonian captivity after 70 years Daniel 10. He began to fast meditate and pray about it recognizing that God wanted him to get involved in the word. He continued praying for 21 days till the opposition of the enemy was eradicated. Like Daniel, we too need to birth and manifest prophetic words for in them God is releasing potential. What we do with it can determine our destiny. Many Christians don’t realize that most prophetic words, and their timing, are conditional upon us taking steps of obedience. We have a responsibility to birth prophetic promises given to us, and not shift the blame on God or the devil for unfulfilled destinies. It would be appropriate to fast and pray over the prophetic words received.
So here is what you can do activate your prophetic destiny

– Four simple words to remember: Welcome; Dispatch; Bind; Loose

Welcome the prophetic word 2 Chronicles 20:20.God builds His Kingdom through prophetic words. When you believe God, and His prophet – you will stand firm and succeed. Believing is receiving. When you speak those prophetic words with conviction like Peter God begins to build His Kingdom through you.

God builds His Kingdom through prophetic words. When you believe God, and His prophet – you will stand firm and succeed. Believing is receiving. When you speak those prophetic words with conviction like Peter God begins to build His Kingdom through you.

Dispatch warrior angels in Jesus’ Name to wage war against the evil one trying to keep you from your destiny, with directives regarding the word you received.
Psalms 34:7; Psalms 103:20; Jeremiah 1:10.

Bind the ‘evil one’ pull down uproot what opposes fulfillment of the prophetic word Matthew 18:18. Be alert and recognize the enemy, put your foot down and drive him away 1 Peter 5:8 John 10:10 Luke 10:19; 1 Peter 5:8-9
Loose or release your prophetic destiny – decree by faith the word given to you Psalms 39:3.

Christianity is called ‘Our Great Confession’. You have to be vocal in activating your prophetic destiny while you welcome, dispatch, bind, and release. You may add fasting to increase sensitivity in the spirit realm and hastening of the manifestation of the word.

If the prophetic word seems slow in coming to pass don’t give up, hold fast to it without wavering for faithful is He that has promised, He will also keep His word. Peter was blessed through receiving and acting upon that revelation. So will you if you do likewise
