[A Season of Closing and Opening Doors]

Hi Loved Ones,

This year 2004, the Lord has clearly said to many prophetic people that it is the year of doors. After the Day of Atonement last fall I have seen several doors which brought me to the conclusion that He was highlighting a theme on doors.

If I were to highlight perhaps just one main door among many, I believe it would be called the Door of Opportunity. I have just walked through several months of doors of opportunity and have come to the conclusion that this door is two fold. There is an "in" door and there is an "out" door. There are doors opening to the Lord, doors opening to the enemy; doors the Lord wants us to walk through, doors the Lord wants us to shut, doors the enemy wants us to walk through and doors the enemy wants us to miss.

My life has been so consumed with doors the past few months that it has almost been like a revolving door. To say it clearly, "Stop the world and let me off!" Now the Lord does not want us to be walking in circles and merry-go-rounds, neither does He want us walking out the in door and in the out door. His earnest desire for us is to pray and listen; then choose and walk the right path.

If I could say it even more clearly, I believe we are at a crossroads and the doors we choose will determine our future. It is true that each day the Lord places us at a crossroad and every decision we make determines our future. However this year we are being presented some wonderful opportunities to get off our merry-go-rounds and forever walk away and move forward into our promises.

As you can guess, the upcoming series will be about doors. In order to make the right decisions that are being presented to us, we need to be persistent in prayer until we clearly hear from the Lord about each issue. The first 3 posts are about persistence. After that, the following posts on specific doors will be posted in pairs. The first post of the week will be about a door to close, and the last post of the week will be the door to open in its stead.


QUICKENED THOUGHT: In every opportunity is a choice. In every choice is a test. In every test there is a destiny.

"For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries." (1 Cor 16:9 NKJV)


UPDATE NOTE: After I wrote this upcoming series on doors, I received confirmations from 3 other ministries that are preaching about doors right now. The Holy Spirit is really highlighting this message. Here is a 4th confirmation I received this week:


Mahesh’s Website:

On the way home from church I had a Mahesh tape on in the car. Here is his quote: "I saw many of you like a mansion, a beautiful house. I saw many doors to this beautiful house. When I was praying, I saw angels of God. You know when you check the doors at night? They were checking the doors. Some of your doors need to be locked and secure. If not, the thief comes in through those doors that are not locked or slightly opened. You’ve got to lock those doors. Don’t let the enemy in."

John 10:10 NLT

The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.




{Words to Ponder are summaries of His quickened Words}


Sometimes you will be offered opportunities in your life, and you may start to walk through the door, but I will place a deep unrest in your soul. Listen to your level of peace. For I am walking in you, and My peace abides with you as you please the Father. When you have lost your peace, stop and reconsider your direction. Sometimes doors open so you can get a tiny taste of something different merely to confirm and replant the way you are already going. Sometimes a new door is a temptation to stray and let go of what you have.

If you think that you might be able to handle both the direction you are taking now, and also the opportunity presented, reconsider. For both are in their infant stage and you can not hold and nurture two babies at once. Either you will neglect the one while you give to the other, or you will become distracted and give neither the time they deserve. Do not be disheartened by small beginnings, for I delight in growing and multiplying them.

"You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." (Ps 16:11 NKJV)
