An Analysis of the Open Door

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name” (Revelation 3:8).

Chosen

Out of the many names of Jesus the one used to describe Christ is unique in this passage to the Church of Philadelphia. …“He that opened and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man opened … I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it”… (Revelation 3:7, 8). The accomplishments of the church or saint are not the reason for the open door (it is noted that this church/saint had a little strength), but God chose to set an open door to this church/saint, after the counsel of His own will

“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will”
(Ephesians 11:1).

Captain James Lawrence commanded the USS Chesapeake in a single ship action against the British HMS Shannon during the War of 1812.  He is probably best known today for his dying command “Don't give up the ship!" Captain Lawrence, was mortally wounded by small arms fire.  He ordered his officers, "Don't give up the ship. Fight her till she sinks.   Men carried him below, and his crew was overwhelmed by a British boarding party shortly afterward. James Lawrence died of his wounds on 4 June 1813

A Little Strength

The point can be illuminated that having an opened door in front of them and having a little strength, sets the stage for multi-dimensional (spiritual, physical, etc.) breakthroughs. Truth says God will not give you more than you can bear even when cast down and forsaken for the name of Christ, you shall receive a victors’ crown.

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it (I Corinthians” 10:13).

Good Stuff!

Even when at a breaking point or even death, with the help of God, any situation could quickly turn around; disengage from failure and gain altitude into greener pastures. All you need is a little strength! Just enough to bat your eye. The culmination of everything that you have experienced before and after you’ve accepted Christ throughout your life qualifies you for the open door, including your development of what you are going through now.

"He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing" Job 28:10.

God’s Time

Over step your current dilemma, know your destiny, focus on it, create a relationship with it, then seize it. By doing this, your making God’s time (kairos) your time, merging your will with His and bringing a greater peace upon the Earth. You’ve hastened into the time to venture beyond the threshold. Beyond the open door God shall invest Himself in your life. Some of the preceding periods in your history set forth positive qualities, but this current age is remarkable having fewer deficiencies your older, wiser, stronger (spiritually) and over all together better than at any other time.

Believe this!

Be Well 2Day!
