THEME FOR 2020-21: “Season of Open Doors”
Every year we come up with an overarching theme for all our churches and ministries in local congregations to run with and build God‘s people to reach people and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ.
Rev. 3:7-8, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.“ ‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
Revelation 3:7 describes Jesus as the One that OPENS A DOOR which no one can shut and the One that shuts a door which no one can open. For the Bible to describe Jesus in this way, it means in this life, everyone needs Christ to open certain doors and to close certain doors. Through this theme, the Lord shall close every door in your life that needs to be closed and He shall open all doors you need in order to enter a new season of progress and alignment to His will.
As a ministry, there’s sense that He’s ushering us into a new season of OPEN DOORS. Most DOORS ARE OPEN by a supernatural intervention. Jesus has the key to open the right doors. It is not something that man can do for you! You need a door to get into and come out of a place. Doors help us to get in and out of a room, car, bus, train, or airplane. We all desire growth and progress in every area of our lives. Where there is no door, a person could be confined or locked up in a particular place or zone. Being confined or tied down to a particular place speaks of stagnation and lack of freedom.
WHAT DOORS IS GOD OPENING IN THIS NEW SEASON?
A. Door of Opportunities (1 Cor. 16:5-9; Rev. 4:1-5)
B. Door of Enlargement—harvest/territory (Book of Joshua)
C. Door of the Manifold Grace of God—favour (Book of Esther)
D. Door of Open Heavens—Spiritual dimensions (Priesthood) (1Peter 2:9-11)
All these doors have one thing in common—to advance the kingdom of God!
What are the keys we need to open doors of opportunities, favour, victory, deliverance, breakthrough, promotion, enlargement, more grace and open heavens? In Matthew 16:19, God says that He has given us the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Note that He didn’t say key (singular) but keys (plural), meaning that more than one key is needed to experience OPEN DOORS. But all the keys you need have been given to you.
Jesus says in the book of Revelation, He has placed before us an OPEN DOOR which no man can shut! From today, as you stand on the Word of God and declare it over your life, all closed doors no matter their size, no matter their texture, no matter the force of darkness working to see that the doors remain shut, they will burst open for you. No matter what kind of doors stand on your way, I pray that God will OPEN DOORS of opportunities, enlargement, favour, blessings and manifold grace in your life in this new season! I declare into your life that starting from today, the DOOR that will make you stand out, God will OPEN for you. In Jesus name, AMEN!
