During a semi private prayer meeting this weekend, I heard a couple things from the Lord and I felt a hesitation in my spirit that I should share all.  I was trying to seek what He wanted me to do, when I was called upon to share what I had received.  I was hesitant and didnt have a settled peace in sharing.  But because I felt pressure under the spotlight, I went ahead and shared a matter of concern that I received.  I realized I should NOT have shared all of it until after I had started, because it caused confusion, but instead I should have waited to share it privately later.  When I tried to back out, it made the situation worse. 


ANSWER TO MY PRAYER:  As I was trying to back out, two people at the very same time said out loud with the same tone of voice, “Protect the body!”  I realized that it was my responsibility as a doorkeeper to share what I had received.  Part of what we do as doorkeepers, is close the door on things that are  unsafe among the sheep.  It was a fabulous confirmation that it was acceptable to share my concern.  However pastor and I decided that the part that I wanted to hold back I could share privately later. 



LESSON:  It was a very good lesson for me that just because we receive something, doesnt mean it is the right time and place to share it.  I would have saved a lot of personal remorse (afterwards) if I had simply not said anything, waited and prayed about seeking a private time to share it. 


The following are really good scriptures on being a doorkeeper:


Matt 7:13-20

"Enter by the narrow gate ; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. 


15 You Will Know Them by Their Fruits


(Matt 12:33; Luke 6:43-45) NKJV

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them. 


John 10:1-15 NKJV

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door , but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.  2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.  4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.  5 Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."  6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.


Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.  8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  9 I am the door . If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.  10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 

11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.  12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.  13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.  14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.


REVELATION:  It occurred to me that the Lord was sharing a deeper revelation about learning to be a doorkeeper. Prior to this, we were breaking the curses of witchcraft during prayer meeting and the Lord led me to read the following out loud while all were praying.  At the exact moment, both pastor and I said “Righteousness” at the same time.  If I had not been so shocked and stopped reading, we also would have said judgment at the same time because he said the same two words back to back in 2 sentences.  This is the sentence I was reading:


Ps 36:6 NKJV

Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep;



Ps 36:12 NLT

Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God to restrain them. 2 In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. 3 Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do what is good. 4 They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their course of action is never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil.


 5 Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O LORD. 7 How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. 8 You feed them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from your rivers of delight. 9 For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see. 10 Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you; give justice to those with honest hearts.


11 Don't let the proud trample me; don't let the wicked push me around. 12 Look! They have fallen! They have been thrown down, never to rise again.


STRONG WORD:  Twice, the Lord was emphasizing His Word to us through exact “in synch” spoken words by two people at the same time.  First through pastor and I:  Righteousness and Judgment, then another two people, Protect the Body! As doorkeepers, we need to wait upon the Lord carefully for confirmation as to what and who passes through the door to the sheep.  Because the Lord is giving authority to judge and judging without love, wisdom, discernment and knowledge can become deadly.
