Open Doors




Venue: The King's Glory Church, King's Lynn

Preacher - Pastor Toyin Adegoke
Sermon topic: Open doors

Meaning: An invitation to come me in.
An open door ushers in a new season and closes the previous.

Ways in which doors can be opened

God himself opens it. 
When God opens a door no one can shut it. Isaiah 22:22, Rev 3:7

God can open a door unto a new revelation. Rev 4:1
God can open a door for soul winning. Acts 14:27. Acts 16:6-7. Before we go out to evangelize, we should pray to find out where an effective door of salvation has been opened, lest we toil for nothing.
God can open a door of escape in challenges. 1 Cor 10:13, Hosea 2:15

Hindrances to entering the door God has opened

1. Doubt. e.g the children of Israel in the wilderness 
2. Wrong focus. Working our own calendar. 2 Cor 2:12
3. Not being aware of the door - Spiritually blind. Isaiah 42:20, Heb 5:11
Not yielding to the Spirit leads to spiritual blindness. Prayerlessness leads to spiritual blindness.  Mark 1:35, Rev 3:1-12
4. The devil. 1 Cor 16:9

People open the door
The people you associate with can open a door for you for God or the enemy to come in. Joshua 6:17,18
Certain items can open doors to blessing (e.g Ark of God in Obededom's house) or destruction (Achan's stolen items and Israel's defeat).
Lack of spiritual growth is an open door for the enemy to come in. 
Giving is an open door for blessings. Mal 3:10
We can open doors by asking for it in prayer. Knocking on God's door. Matthew 7:7
