Greetings in the matchless Name of JESUS – THE DOOR OPENER!
The last time we dealt with a few basics on the portal as entrances into God’s presence, with an underlying objective to fulfil His plans and purposes through a release of His power and presence, a release of much angelic activity, ministering angels at work, while preparing His Bride for His soon coming return.
Pathways that connect the Heavenly realm and the earthly realm are portals. The portal we considered was ‘Thanksgiving and Praise’ – which is still under construction worldwide in the lives of God’s people but is gaining momentum. Praise is God’s habitation and should be ours as well – a temple of praise. We know that when we worship the Lord we open up environments that become heavenly portals when heaven will be released
Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of thy tent…stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations…”
1 Peter 2:9. “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
Hope we have been regularly and continually entering the Portal of Thanksgiving and Praise and witnessing a super-abound.
Let us continue to stretch forth the curtain of the Heavenly–Earth connection, bit by bit. This is a clarion call to the Body of Christ to open portals. But how can we unless and until we delve into our next portal – “JESUS THE DOOR OPENER”
God and Adam walked together in the Garden. Adam was expelled from God’s presence and excluded from the glory after he transgressed. In the aftermath, of time immemorial, mankind has sought a pathway back into the supernatural realm.
Thanks be to God for the Lord Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of the living God who became the Door-Opener into God’s presence
According to God’s blueprint, a woman is designed to bear children by becoming a portal of transport of a human spirit – soul from the spiritual to the natural realm.
Jesus fulfilled the Abrahamic Covenant, became the Portal within the ‘portal.’
He became the Portal or Door John 10:7,9 between the natural and the supernatural – the Seed of God, the Reconciler to reconcile man and God, one mediator between God and man 1 Timothy 2:5; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 – legal inhabitant of the earth and spiritual world.
Jesus entered the natural dimension where all humans live through one of Abraham’s descendants, the ‘portal’ – the Virgin Mary, for God’s design and will to be established on earth.
This applies to us as well – we too become portals…As He is, so are we in this world 1 John 4:17.
We are meant to be heavenly portals for heaven itself. Welcome to your pathway to destiny
According to the book of Ephesians we are seated in heavenly places, but to make this an everyday reality with heavenly encounters we need to access this heavenly portal JESUS – THE DOOR OPENER! Let us hold fast to the testimony of Jesus! He wants to spend time with us because He loves us, and He will show us some of the heavenly places.
The Psalmist says in Psalm 24:7-10. “Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, ancient doors; that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty. The LORD mighty in battle…LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.”
How do we stay connected with Jesus?
This goes beyond making room for the King of Glory to enter – through new birth. In this series we will consider three inter-connects: Assembling; Service; Prayer
Assembling. “We should not neglect the assembling of saints, our meeting together as believers for worship and instruction, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more faithfully as we see the day of Christ’s return] approaching.” Hebrews 10:25.
So we need to Choose a Local Church where the Body of Christ gathers to hear the Word of God and respond in worship together and be regularly present and involved in Christian service and fellowship. It’s impossible to maintain a healthy relationship with God apart from his Body on earth, the Church.
Galatians 5:13. “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
We may all like the word ministry but have we pondered over how to minister the life of Jesus? Yes, we need to find people to serve, and a great place to do that is the local Church. – The quickest path to depart from God is to pursue self, your own interests forgetful of others. This amounts to selfishness.
But there is a way out of this – think of yourself less. Put Jesus first, others next and yourself last. You do this by finding people to serve in love. As stated before it can happen in your church. You could also find other ways to serve others around you in different walks of life. This would open up prophetic encounters
Praying without ceasing for this is the will of God. 1 Thessalonians 5:17-19. Make prayer a dialogue with God. Once you do it personally on a one-to-one with God, it can flow corporately through prayer – partners. Prophetic people ought to hear God’s voice as the Lord says – My sheep hear My voice and follow Me. A prayer of dialogue will do the job.
I hear the Lord say: If you abide in Me and My words abide in you ask what you will and it shall be done.
And you will hear what I have to say if you will hold fast to that Door which is Me as the disciple who leaned on Me, whom I loved learned much from Me.
Yes, as you Call on Me I will show you great and mighty things you are not aware of.
Do not neglect assembling together as you have heard before, for there too in the assembling you will hear my voice and learn to discern. You will have heard Me inwardly and outwardly as well and you will know to discern the genuine and the counterfeit through the Anointing that dwells in you and My Word that illuminates you.
Much love in Jesus, the King of Glory!
