Can God Open the Doors of Heaven For You?

“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)

For the sixth (and second to last time) he states the fact: I know exactly where you are at, “I know thy works.” And he accepts the works of those at Philadelphia because they have a little strength, they have kept his word, and not denied his name and what it all stands for. Consequently, he opens the doors of heaven to them that they might receive all the spiritual blessings, understanding, and nourishment from God’s Word and his Holy Spirit. This is the way it was in the Old Testament type when the Israelites traveled through the Sinai desert:

“Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.” (Psalms 78:23-25)

This “angels’ food” is provided today by spiritual angels – true message bearing ministers of the Gospel, sent to preach and open the door of understanding; revealing the truths of Jesus Christ and his plan of salvation:

“Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.” (Colossians 4:2-4)

After so many years of the confusion of false Christians and their false teachings and churches, the “doors” to the truth of God’s plan and the truth of his church must be “opened” so that those who are honest can “clean house” and fully measure up to God’s plan. In type, in the Old Testament, this same thing needed to happen after years of spiritual corruption amongst the people. A true and faithful king would need to stand up, open the doors, clean house, and set the true worship of God in order:

“Hezekiah began to reign when he was five and twenty years old, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Abijah, the daughter of Zechariah. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done. He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the LORD, and repaired them. And he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them together into the east street, And said unto them, Hear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place. For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of the LORD, and turned their backs. Also they have shut up the doors of the porch, and put out the lamps, and have not burned incense nor offered burnt offerings in the holy place unto the God of Israel.” (2 Chronicles 29:1-7)

King Hezekiah not only opened the doors and cleaned house, but he also addressed the need of the lamps of the candlestick that had gone out. He had those who lead the worship sanctify themselves, and fully reestablish the proper worship of almighty God according to God’s plan.

When all things that are owed to God are set in order pertaining to the true worship, God himself opens the spiritual heavens to pour out spiritual blessings upon his people:

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Malachi 3:10-12)

Whenever any people throughout history would seek the Lord with all their heart and thoroughly “clean up” the worship and their lives, God always has opened up a blessing for them from heaven. This especially started happening around the year 1880. At that time God began to anoint a ministry with the fullness of his Word and Holy Spirit so that they would preach a full Gospel message of: deliverance from sin and deliverance from false, so-called “Christian” churches, and the true love and unity of the brethren. This ministry would knock on the door, Christ Jesus, and he would “open unto them” and they would have understanding to preach the “come out” message. Come out of: sin, false doctrine, division, and false religious organizations of men, and come to mount Zion, the true spiritual city of God, the heavenly Jerusalem, the true church of God:

“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect” (Hebrews 12:22-23)
