Revelation 4:1 – “Then as I looked, I saw a door open in Heaven.”
I believe that like me, many of you have been in what seems like a season of wandering and transition. During this past season there has been intense warfare and sometimes down right heaviness. The Lord gave me a Word to eliminate any confusion and that this spiritual colliding was over our DESTINIES. You have to understand that Satan is not afraid of you going to Heaven. His greatest fear is you fulfilling your DESTINY. I believe that what the Lord is saying NOW is that this season is coming to an end because there is a door open in Heaven. Whenever there is a door open it requires us to walk through it in order to get to what is on the other side of the door. Since this door is in heaven it requires us to go up to go through. In other words, we will not find the solution to our wondering or our wandering from the natural world around us. Remember our lives and existence are not earth-bound. No, NOW, we are raised up and seated together with Christ in Heaven, NOW (Ephesians 2:6). We are called to be an extension of Heaven on earth. So, the answer to your situation will not be found here on earth. It never has been. Most people just think, “I’ll find a new job, that will fix it. Or I just need a new church, that will fix it.” I’m telling you the answer is not found in natural solutions. The answer to getting through this season of transition is on the other side of the open door in Heaven.
As I went up through the open door, the Lord told me, “Your season of birthing is over, and you are entering a season of fathering.” As you enter through the open door, the Lord Himself has answers for you. I sensed that the Lord was saying that He is going before us and preparing the way for everyone that recognizes this opportunity. That this open door is about seeking His face. That He has the answers and directives to transition us out of this season (Matthew 5:6).
In Revelation when John looked and saw the open door, it was in Heaven, not on earth. This is a door made available in the spirit realm, right over your existing situation. People who try to fix spiritual battles with natural means will never transition into the next season of their destinies. Only faith takes us forward into God’s plan for our lives (Hebrews 11:1). We are called to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Your promotion is connected to the strength of your inner man. That strength is only gained as we spend time with our Father. Our willingness to worship Him in spirit and truth gives us the capacity to go up through the open door – to hear His voice. That will enable us to transition into a new greater anointing and a new season of harvest. The door is open…. His voice is calling…. the time is NOW!
I now understand the reason for this season of warfare. We do not grow without adversity. Adversity either grows us because we fight in the spirit or it stops us from advancing because we attempt to fix it in the flesh (Ephesians 6:12). Our spirit man must become stronger to reach this new dimension. In order to see more of Heaven on earth, we must access more of Heaven.
Then John heard, “Come up here, and I will show you things to come” (Revelations 4:3). John was told that when he went up and through the door into the next dimension, he would see things to come. If we will learn to live from this place, we will live with Heaven’s authority and the things trying to hold us back will fall off. There is an anointing for upgrade NOW, if you will go up and through the OPEN DOOR.
My prayer for you today is that you will hear God (your Father’s) voice calling you to come up to the place of greater intimacy with Him and to experience His glory and presence in your life. This is the secret to the overcoming life.
