TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER –  September 13, 2023

Genesis 9:13 – I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 

Covenant is not the same as contract. At OpenDoor Church, we choose covenant over contract. When you sign a contract, both sides agree to certain responsibilities and standards. If one side breaks those terms, the contract is over, and that side will face the penalty. Our God is a God of covenant, not contract. His covenant with us is not dependent upon our performance, but on Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. He died and rose again to keep His prophetic promise to be our Redeemer. What an awesome God we have! 

Declaration: I choose covenant over contract because it is God’s way. He is totally trustworthy and so am I. 


The passionate heart of our King will never be satisfied with mediocre. When you fight for the heart of the King, you fight for greatness within your own life.

Jesus did not live and die on this earth for you and I to live defeated, insignificant lives – to attend church on Sundays and maybe a Bible study during the week and never let the Word change us or His presence permeate us. 

He would love us and treat us like kings if that was all we did, but that was not His mission.

It turns out, the Christian life is not a vacation. It is a battle for the heart of the King to be made manifest in your life. I want to encourage you to become who He has called you to be.

For many are called, but few are chosen. – John 22:14

The masses are invited, but few people have actually accepted the call to move forward with God’s plan for their fullest potential. They need to grasp the Word His supernatural heart says to us: permission granted.

If we accept this calling and move forward, submitting and conforming our lives to the image of His plan, we no longer find ourselves in shameful places.

Instead of their shame, my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace, they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. – Isaiah 61:7
