The Open Door - Cal Pierce
We have entered into the year 5778 on the Jewish calendar. This is the year of the Open Door. The reason God opens the door of Heaven to us is for access to God's provision for us. It is His desire that we receive His will or promises. If we are to establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven, then we must have access to the fullness of the Kingdom.
We need to have the revelation that there is a door standing open that no man can shut. The door is Jesus. (John 10:9) He is our head and we are His body. The government of God is therefore on our (collective) shoulders. In Ephesians 2, verse 18, we are told,
For through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
Our access through the door, Jesus, is by the Holy Spirit that is in you and I. The provision of the Kingdom is in the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is in us, so that we can access all that is in the Kingdom.
This isn't something we have to look forward to, it is already here. We access it by our relationship with the Holy Spirit. In that relationship He will lead us into all truth. It is the knowing of Truth that makes us free. (John 8:32) Too many believers struggle with receiving their blessings from God. We need to know that our blessings are guaranteed by God. Let's look at the promises in Galatians, chapter 3, verse 14
In order that in Christ Jesus the blessings of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Jesus is the guarantee of our blessing that we receive by the Spirit of God by faith. When we believe the truth of God's promises, our faith assigns the Holy Spirit to the fulfillment of the promises on our behalf. Abraham was a very blessed man and God wants us to receive the same blessings. We must set our eyes on the things above and not on the things on earth that are going wrong. We are in the world but not of the world, so let's keep seeking the Kingdom of God where our blessings come from.
