Demontae Edmonds: "When Heaven's Windows Open"

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve Shultz

This is one of the most excellent prophetic teaching messages about the "windows of Heaven" from our friend Demontae Edmonds.

Have you given much thought about the windows of Heaven from Scripture? For example:

"'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and put Me to the test now in this,' says the Lord of armies, 'if I do not open for you the windows of Heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.'" (Mal. 3:10)

Not only does Demontae go into in-depth revelation about the windows of Heaven, he makes this statement:

God will let you know when a window is open in your life and for what purpose. This revelation may come by a vision, dream, prophetic word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit. Watch and pray for these divine openings to take place on your behalf!

Knocking on the Door

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." (Matthew 7:7)

In this verse, the Lord Jesus lays out a powerful key to receiving answers to prayer and accessing the favor of Heaven. He explains that prayer and petitions to God may require one or more modalities. The first is to simply ask. This one is the easiest and least strenuous, but it often does not have enough force of faith to produce a harvest, especially when demonic resistance is involved. The next key to petitioning Heaven is to "seek" God. This involves asking but may also involve confessions of faith, or searching Scripture for a Bible verse to stand on in faith. It also involves a more intentional posture in prayer.

When asking and seeking does not cause one to gain spiritual ground, then the more aggressive approach may be needed, which is to "knock" on Heaven's proverbial door. The purpose of a knock is to get the attention of whoever is able to open the door. Knocking may involve fasting, corporate prayer, praying in the Spirit, and/or other more fervent means of prayer.

The Lord gives a powerful promise to those who adhere to these three methodologies in the following verse: "For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" (Matthew 7:8). This verse should cause us to be elated with the guarantee that Heaven will always respond when we pursue God sincerely. However, there is often another way that God uses.

Taking the Shortcut

When I was a kid, my family lived in a large apartment complex. Often, my dad and I would go out together on errands, and several times, he would leave the key to the house within the apartment. This was never an issue if my mother was home to open the door, but when she was at work, there were two options to enter the apartment.

The first option was to go to the rental office and ask them to send someone over to open the apartment door for us. These were the days before cell phones, so we could not simply call and request assistance. This option required that we walk quite a distance to the rental office and wait for them to send someone over to unlock our door. This was the guaranteed but lengthier option of the two.

My dad often chose the second option – an unconventional shortcut. This method of entering the apartment would involve him somehow jumping up several times to unlatch part of the window from the outside. Next, he would have me place my feet within his two clasped hands and he would guide me in how to open the window from the outside. Once the window was open, the fun would follow! My dad would hoist me upward and forward through the window. I would never get hurt, but it was always fun crashing through the blinds and curtains. After landing on the couch, I would get up and open the front door to let my father into the house. (Photo via Flickr)

Recently while in prayer, God reminded me of these moments which made me chuckle, but He used this memory as an analogy for a spiritual principle found in Scripture.

When the Windows Are Open

The door may be locked, but remember, God has windows too. God not only promises to open locked doors but also to open closed windows. The problem with knocking on a door is, firstly, one doesn't know how hard they have to knock to get the attention of the person on the other side of the door. Secondly, one does not know how long they will have to knock (pray) before the knocks are answered. However, with an open window from God, you can just move through it with a little faith, like when I jumped through our apartment window when the door was locked.

Let's examine some scriptures.

God Will Tell You How to Have an Open Window in Your Life

In Malachi 3, God chastises the children of Israel for not prioritizing the things of God in their hearts and lives. He specifically rebukes them for not tithing as instructed. God, as a good Father, promises that if they will repent and show their gratitude to Him and dependency upon Him through tithing, He will open the windows of Heaven over the nation. Please note that the response from Heaven here does not necessitate prayer but an act of obedience to the voice of God. He did not tell them to give and then seek, ask, and knock in prayer, but He gave a simple promise: IF you do this, then I will do this on your behalf – I will open the windows of Heaven.

"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." (Malachi 3:10)

God Will Let You Know WHEN a Window Is Open

During the days of Elisha, there was a great famine in the land of Samaria because the king of Samaria had besieged the city. The famine was so severe that one mother ended up boiling her child and eating him as a meal (2 Kings 6:29). How terrible! However, the prophet Elisha prophesied a divine turnaround that would take place within the city's economy within 24 hours. God had him declare the divine timing of an open window over the city for supernatural turnaround and breakthrough.

"And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, SHALL BE TOMORROW about this time in the gate of Samaria." (2 Kings 7:18 emphasis added)

Last year as I was ministering online, God stopped me in the midst of speaking and instructed me to declare to the people that a window of supernatural giving had been opened but that they must give "NOW." As people began to give, many felt the presence of the Lord or some level of Holy Spirit manifestation. Then something more unusual happened...some reported that they were INSTANTLY HEALED of physical conditions as they hit the button on their phone to give! I never had a chance to pray for their healing or war on their behalf; they simply stepped into a divine window through an act of obedience. God declared the window was open and they took advantage.

God will let you know when a window is open in your life and for what purpose. This revelation may come by a vision, dream, prophetic word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit. Watch and pray for these divine openings to take place on your behalf!

Don't Allow Doubt to Close the Window

Sadly, in this account, we discover a city official who chose NOT to believe the word of the Lord and not to partner his faith with the divine open windows of Heaven. (Photo via Pxhere)

"And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the Lord should make WINDOWS IN HEAVEN, might such a thing be?..." (2 Kings 7:19 emphasis added)

As we read further, we discover that this same man missed out on the open window of Heaven, didn't partake of the city-wide financial blessing, and also was killed as he was trampled by others at the gate. All of this happened the next day, just as the man of God had prophesied to him in response to his doubt and unbelief. There was no requirement that he pray for the breakthrough – only that he believe – but he missed his moment of divine opportunity.

"...And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof." (2 Kings 7:19)

How to Partner with Your Window by Faith

While fishing, the disciples decided to believe the word of Jesus and cast out their nets, even though they had fished all night and caught nothing. They had toiled. Let's relate this to asking, seeking, and knocking. A window for supernatural provision opened for the fisherman in Luke 5:4: "...He said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught." In this account, it did not say that they asked the Lord for help, a miracle, or to pray to God the Father on their behalf. It only says, essentially, that Simon Peter decided to partner with the word of God.

"And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake." (Luke 5:6)

It was supernatural breakthrough!

Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, we thank You that You are a God who sees and hears from Heaven. We thank You that, always, You hear our prayer in Jesus' name.

Father, we pray that You would open windows of Heaven and portals in and around our lives, that our prayers would be accelerated, and that demonic resistance would be easily overcome.

Father, we repent for any past disobedience or negligence that caused us to miss out on prior supernatural opportunities. We ask that Your Holy Spirit would help us to discern and know the timing and purpose of all windows opened in Heaven in the future. We thank You, Father, for a divine harvest and answered prayers in abundance.
