OPEN DOORS ARE MANIFESTING BEFORE YOU
Over the last months, I have been hearing – “Get your house in order,” and the necessity of this has been increasing. I have been responding personally, as Holy Spirit leads. The other day, He took me to Hebrews 11:14-15. I did not realize it until afterwards that the date was November 14.
“For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.” (Hebrews 11:14-15 KJV)
We are all standing on, and believing to see the manifestation of, the promises of God we have heard by His Spirit within us. The waiting is hard, and discouragement is ever at the door to tempt us to return to the land of “comfortable but not fulfilling.” I personally have really had to battle negative thoughts of doubt and unbelief; the lies that it was better before; the temptation to settle (or quit altogether); battle against the lure of the world and desires of my own flesh and soul. Genesis 3:1 tells us that the enemy is very subtle in his temptations; the word subtle, according to Strong’s Concordance, means shrewd, sly and crafty. Crafty brings to mind witchcraft, seduction and trickery.
If they had been “mindful” of where they were before, they might have had opportunity to return. Mindful, according to Strong’s Concordance, means to exercise memory, recollect; to rehearse (make mention). What are we rehearsing in our minds and out of our mouths? Holy Spirit then gave me a vision of a vast array of doors and showed me that doors are manifested before us by the desires of our hearts and thoughts of our minds. He had me re-read the beginning of Hebrews 11, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:1-3 KJV) There is a framing of our houses, and doors opening to our future, by the words of our mouths that come out of our hearts and minds.
Opportunity in Strong’s Concordance is the word Kairos – a measure of time, set time, due time, an appointment, a season of time to do something. Can you hear this? If we stay mindful of those things we came out of, a measure of time might be manifested to us for the return! Going around the mountain again! The Israelites did not enter the promised land because of unbelief. They didn’t stay mindful of what God had told them. If you are hearing this, there is a measure of faith being added to those seemingly dormant promises. Dry promises live – declare the word of the Lord! It is time to come forth, even as the bones grew sinew and muscle upon them, words of faith spoken are adding layers of substance to form open doors before you!
Hebrews 11:13 gives us a four-step process to activate our faith.
“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” (Hebrews 11:1-3, 13 KJV)
We “see” a promise from the Lord – a Rhema word, a vision, a dream, an impression upon our spirit that bears witness that it is for us. What do we do with it to become persuaded of it? We meditate on it, search out the scriptures showing that God did it for others (He’s not a respecter of persons), receive confirmations. Then we are persuaded of them. Yet I am hearing the Lord saying that they aren’t being fully embraced, and there has been a disconnection to the confession of faith because of that. There are other things that we are embracing in our hearts and minds that are displacing the fullness that must be in place to confess in full faith. James 1:6-8 tells us that when we are double-minded, we are not asking in faith and we will receive nothing. Romans 4:16-22 tells us that when Abraham received the word of promise for a son, even while in the natural it was impossible because of age, he was fully persuaded. FULLY persuaded – and his faith was imputed to him as righteousness. He embraced the promise and received the reward.
As I was pondering the connection between “Get your house in order” and the “doors of opportunity,” I heard the Lord say, “I have set before you an open door” (Rev.3:8), and you hold the key. The key is seeing it and walk through by MY faith. I AM the author and finisher of your faith…real faith. Faith that comes by hearing, and hearing by MY words; I AM the word made manifest before you. Your words are manifesting doors before your eyes. I am extending supernatural grace to you right now to be able to discern between good and evil, to see the doors that are from the enemy, those that are from your own heart, and MY doors. Receive MY grace and be aligned fully; I am enabling you to get your house in order. We are HIS house…IF…
“But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.” (Hebrews 3:6 KJV)
I am hearing so clearly that there are doors manifesting before us and it is critical that we keep our faith high – keeping the visions fresh in our mind’s eye, persuading ourselves by the reality of God’s goodness and faithfulness, embracing it fully by seeing ourselves as separated unto God and aligning spirit, soul and body to Him, and confessing the same. Our tongues are the rudders of the ship, or in this case, the framing of our house.
We are entering a time of birthing. There is a great pressing, and even at the last moments before the birth, there may be a turning for proper positioning. Doors are being manifested so that we will see what is in our hearts and turn to complete separation unto the Lord. I am hearing that many are frustrated, tired of the wait, but the Lord is saying, “Trust Me in this time of waiting, I hear your groanings, tired of anticipating; do not grow weary, but trust and rest; I am working in this and will bring forth the best. I am preparing a place for you and others, many are not yet fitted as sisters and brothers. Feel the urgency of the time; I am jealous for what is Mine. You know that I am a faithful rewarder, receive fresh grace to put your house in order and the open doors will be within My borders.”
