Text: Revelation 3: 7. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth.
A man either opens his door to God or the devil.
The outcome of any door a man chooses to open is clear. The fruit of such fellow speaks of what has taken control of His life.
The Bible tells us that “by their fruits, you shall know them”. (Matthew 6:16)
Biblically, we can clearly see that a man either opens to the spirit which is life or he opens to the flesh which is death.
When we open our door to the flesh, the outcome results are; lust, adultery, malice, hatred fornication, wild parties, lies, idolatry, witchcraft, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, wrath, seditions, heresies and other sins like these. Galatians 5:19-21.
But when we open our door to the spirit of God, the outcome results are; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23.
Our main text tells us that when God opens a door, no man closes and when God closes a door, no man can open.
We must, therefore, understand that not every closed door is of the devil and not every open door is of God.
Today God wants to close all the negative and sinful doors that are open in our lives.
But we need to first open the door to enable Him to come into our lives. Revelations 3:20
Say these prayers to give Jesus Christ access.
“O Lord I repent of all my sins, forgive my trespasses, wash me with your precious blood and deliver me from all evil. I confess you Jesus as the Lord and savior of my life Amen”
The Lord will close doors of untimely death, doors of disfavor, doors of hardship, doors of poverty, doors of sin, doors of sickness and any possible negative door you are experiencing.
And I assure you that when God closes all these doors, no man can open them.
At the time of Noah, before the flood, it wasn’t the ark that kept water away from coming in, it was because God by Himself closed the door of the ark the Bible says. Genesis 7:16.
“I pray for you, every open door that has given the devil access into your life, your family, relationship, marriage, business, ministry, is closing from now in the name of Jesus Christ”.
In conclusion, the only person that opens a door God has closed is you.
Now be careful not to go back to those sins and evil that the Lord has set you apart from.
Beware of friends, environments, and associations that would lure you back to sin and open the door for the enemy again.
Command every ancient, ancestral, sinful doors and gate to be lifted up and in thanksgiving, welcome the King of Glory to take over your life.
