Further to Dave Hood’s reference to ‘open door’ in his For such a time as this I thank Chris Bennett and UK Prophetic Words for this on the new Hebraic year:
If the coming year is the year of the open door for Israel, then it is surely the year of the open door for Christians too. I read relatively little prophecy from others, that I may know that anything I speak prophetically is from God rather than something already implanted in my mind by another’s prophecy. So this, like anything else I write, is what I believe I am hearing from God.
We’ve heard a lot about open doors lately. I’ve written about it and so have others. I/we’ve had ‘open doors’ prophesied over us three times recently and, indeed, new doors have been cracking open before us. So when I read the other day that the Jewish new year, 5778, is the Year of the Open Door, I sat up and paid attention.
“Have I not opened every door necessary to bring you thus far?” says the Lord. “And will I not open every door necessary to ensure your path in the future?”
I feel the Lord saying that He is clearing a way for revival, opening doors of opportunity, preparing hearts both for the work and for salvation. He is changing mindsets from doubt to expectancy, and He is fulfilling the expectant heart by His Spirit.
Doors are opening for all His children. Some will be the answer to prayer, but some will be totally unexpected opportunities for bringing even the most lost of people with the hardest of hearts to the throne of grace.
Yet the most important doors the Lord is opening are the doors to revival. In the UK, this has already started to happen. In America, the course that President Trump is taking is opening many, many doors to revival. Indeed small spiritual fires are already burning in places, and I feel that, under the example shown by Mr Trump, many more will start until America is ablaze with revival.
“PRAY!” says the Lord, “PRAY for REVIVAL, PRAY for YOUR LEADERS, PRAY for YOUR CHURCH, PRAY for YOUR CITIES, PRAY for YOUR FAMILIES.
“LET YOUR PRAYERS RISE AS A SWEET AROMA BEFORE ME”, says God, “and let my enemies be scattered as I arise and bring MY SPIRIT with REVIVAL to both the UK and AMERICA and from there to THE WORLD.
“This is the season. This is the year. Now is the time to TEAR DOWN those things that hold you back. Now is the time for HARVEST. Now is the time for my spirit to show the world that I am God, that I am the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. That is my name and I will be heard throughout your land!
I have OPENED THE DOOR, I am coming, and I am bringing REVIVAL with me!” says the Lord!
