TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Behold, I stand at the door of your life and knock. Will you let Me in? Will you let My Holy Spirit have its way in your heart and fill you with the oil of joy? Let your lamp be lit with enough oil to spare for I Am coming soon.
ARE YOU CALLED TO AN OPEN DOOR?
Jesus says in the book of Luke and in Matthew 24 that the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the heavens and when you see these things begin to happen, look up from what you’re doing because it’s even at the door. What’s at the door? The Bridegroom, Jesus.
Now, “even at the door” means one of two things: you are either the Church of Philadelphia or the Church of Laodicea.
The Church of Philadelphia had its act together. They were known for “brotherly love.” They knew love is a verb. They knew how to take care of others in a selfless way that proved Jesus is good. Because of that, this church is called up to an open door, amen.
“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.” – Revelation 3:7-8
I believe that open door no man can shut is the rapture of the Church – the five wise virgins with the oil of the Spirit in their lamps – for the marriage supper of the lamb.
Now, the Church of Laodicea was known for being lukewarm, just like the water that flowed there from the Roman aqueducts. They have no fire, no passion, no zeal. In the Laodicean Church, Jesus Christ is at the door and he’s knocking because we’ve kicked Him out. Did you catch that? He’s at the door.
My friends, the Bridegroom cometh. He’s at the door. The Sign of the Son of Man appeared in the heavens in September of 2017. We’re supposed to be looking for Him. He’s at the door and I’ve got to ask, are you called to an open door or is your door shut? Don’t leave Jesus on the outside. Love thy neighbor as yourself.
