Many prophetic voices have said that God is up to some BIG things in this time..including fulfilling His promises in a grand way and opening great and effectual doors before us.
With that has come a time of standing and believing...just as Alane Haynes shares here:
I know this speaks to many of you...take heart that His open doors are manifesting before you in this season. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Over the passing months I have been hearing, "Get your house in order." The necessity of this has been increasing and I have been responding, personally, as Holy Spirit leads. The other day He took me to Hebrews 11:14-15 (I did not realize until afterwards that the date was November 14).
"For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned." (Hebrews 11:14-15 KJV)
The Battle of Doubt and Unbelief
"Doors are being manifested so that we will see what is in our hearts and turn to complete separation unto the Lord."
We are all standing on and believing to see the manifestation of the promises of God we have heard by His Spirit within us. The waiting is hard, and discouragement is ever at the door tempting us to return to the land of "comfortable but not fulfilling." I personally have had to battle negative thoughts of doubt and unbelief—the lies that it was better before with the temptation to settle (or quit altogether).
Genesis 3:1 tells us that the enemy is very subtle in his temptations. The word subtle, according to Strong's Concordance, means "shrewd, sly and crafty."
Manifesting Open Doors
Holy Spirit then gave me a vision of a vast array of doors and showed me that doors are manifested before us by the desires of our hearts and thoughts of our minds. He had me re-read the beginning of Hebrews 11, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (Hebrews 11:1-3 KJV). There is a framing of our houses and an opening of doors to our future by the words of our mouths that come out of our hearts and minds. Mindful, according to Strong's Concordance, means "to exercise memory, recollect; to rehearse; to make mention." What are we rehearsing in our minds and out of our mouths?
In ancient Greek, the word for opportunity is kairos, which (according to Strong's Concordance) means: "a measure of time, set time, due measure, the right time, opportune or seasonable time." (Photo via Unsplash)
The Israelites did not enter the promised land because of unbelief. They didn't stay mindful of what God had told them. If you are hearing this, there is a measure of faith being added to those seemingly dormant promises. Declare, "Dry promises live!" Declare the Word of the Lord. It is time to come forth. Even as the bones grow new and muscle upon them, words of faith spoken are adding layers of substance to form open doors before you!
A Disconnect in Our Faith-Activating Process
Hebrews 11:13 gives us a process to activate our faith. "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth" (KJV).
We "see" a promise from the Lord—a rhema word, a vision, a dream, an impression upon our spirit that bears witness that it is for us. What do we do with it to become persuaded of it? We meditate on it, search out the Scriptures showing that God did it for others (He's not a respecter of persons), and receive confirmations. Then we are persuaded of them. Yet, I am hearing the Lord saying that they aren't being fully embraced, and there has been a disconnection to the confession of faith because of that. There are other things that we are embracing in our hearts and minds which are displacing the fullness that must be in place to confess in full faith.
"What are we rehearsing in our minds and out of our mouths?"
Romans 4:16-22 tells us that when Abraham received the word of promise for a son, even while in the natural, it was impossible because of age, but was "fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised." "FULLY persuaded" and his "faith" was imputed to him as righteousness. He embraced the promise and received the reward.
As I was pondering the connection between, "Get your house in order," and the, "Doors of opportunity," I heard the Lord say, "I have set before you an open door (Revelation 3:8), and you hold the key. The key is seeing it and walk through by MY faith. I AM the Author and Finisher of your faith...real faith; faith that comes by hearing, and hearing by MY words.
"I AM the Word made manifest before you. Your words are manifesting doors before your eyes. I am extending supernatural grace to you right now to be able to discern between good and evil, to see the doors that are from the enemy, those that are from your own heart, and My doors. Receive My grace and be aligned fully. I am enabling you to get your house in order."
We are HIS house IF "...we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end." (Hebrews 3:6 KJV)
I am hearing so clearly that there are doors manifesting before us and it is critical that we keep our faith high, keeping the visions fresh in our mind's eye, and persuading ourselves by the reality of God's goodness and faithfulness. We embrace this fully by seeing ourselves as separated unto God and aligning spirit, soul and body to Him and confessing the same. Our tongues are the rudders of the ship, or in this case, the framing of our house.
A Time of Birthing
We are entering a time of birthing. There is a great pressing, and even at the last moments before the birth there may be a turning for proper positioning. Doors are being manifested so that we will see what is in our hearts and turn to complete separation unto the Lord. (Photo via Unsplash)
I am hearing that many are frustrated and tired of the waiting, but the Lord is saying, "Trust Me in this time of waiting. I hear your groaning...tired of anticipating. Do not grow weary, but trust and rest. I am working in this and will bring forth the best. I am preparing a place for you and others. Many are not yet fitted as sisters and brothers. Feel the urgency of the time; I am jealous for what is Mine. You know that I am a faithful rewarder. Receive fresh grace to put your house in order." (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
