As I contemplated about the word DOOR I looked for the significance of the word door in scripture.
As I read the scriptures one thing jumped out at me. Doors are ways into places, Jesus is the door, the way to the Father (John 10:9). Jesus will one day be at the door to return to be with us on Earth (Mark 13:29). Jesus stands at the door and knocks (what a gentleman) (Rev 3:20). In Song of Solomon 5:2 it says, “I slept, but my heart was awake, when I heard my lover knocking and calling: Open to me, my treasure, my darling, my dove, my perfect one.”
Doesn’t this ring as a wonderful thing, one day He will come calling and be at the door of the Heavens, coming on the clouds, returning for the one He loves. As a bride waits for her bridegroom so should we be ready and waiting for his return.
Revelations 3:20 Jesus says he has opened a door that no one can close, that door is to the Father, that door is the door to home. Our final place of communion with Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit, HOME at last. A place of total love, peace and joy.
Before that day there are many doors we will walk through, doors into people’s lives that Our Father will prepare for us so we can share His love and life with others. Doors to healing, health, friendship, family, work. So in our waiting for that final victory when Jesus comes through the door, coming for His Bride, lets prepare our hearts, complete the task he has given us, to make disciples of all people, by loving them.
Let’s ask the Father to guard the door of our lips and our hearts so no evil will pass through. As The Father told Cain in Genesis 4:7, “You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be it’s master.”
As we walk each day, let our heart’s door be guarded and filled with God so the overflow of our lips will be God-wise and bring healing and health to our bones and those of others as well. Praying for the doors of others to be open to Jesus, that none will be left behind on the day of His return.
