The open door of opportunity

Isaiah 55:6-7 (6) Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

(7) Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

I believe that there is a period of time that the Lord will keep an open door of opportunity before us so we can escape from the dark basement of sin in our lives. Come out of the sinful darkness of sexual immorality, cowardliness, unbelief and faithlessness, murderings, lying, sorcery and idolatry and come into the Light (Rev. 21:8). For there is coming a time when the open door of opportunity will be shut and it will be to late and some will sadly find themselves left in the darkness knocking on the door wanting to be free. But sadly, once the door is shut the opportunity for escape is no longer available.

The Holy Spirit will draw and knock on our heart's door calling for us to come out of the darkness and into the Light. And there is a time frame for each individual to answer His call.

It will be to late for some. The Word of God is full of references in the scriptures concerning this. For example the Foolish Virgins in Mt. 25. In Luke 13:25-27; others came knocking on the door for the Lord to let them in but the Master would not open the door unto them. It was to late for Esau; Heb. 12:7. The Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul in 1 Samuel 16:14. In 2 Thess. 2:10-12; this is the great apostasy where men will be deluded and believe a lie and not the Truth. It was to late for all of these people. The open door of opportunity for them had already been shut.

There will come a time when the Holy Spirit will stop drawing and He will shut the door and leave. David would not have prayed such a prayer in Ps. 51:11; Take not your Holy Spirit from me if it wasn't possible for that to happen.

But I have some good news for you my friend! The Word of God says that we are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil. 2:12). If you have found yourself entangled in sin's darkness and you are being convicted of this then I can assure you that the Holy Spirit is still drawing you, and there is an open door of opportunity in front of you. It is not to late for you to reach out and walk toward the open door and leave the dark basement of sin in your life. So yield to the Holy Spirit's drawing today and move in a new direction and rise up out of that dark cellar of sin and don't look back. He is drawing you today my friend! It might be to late for you tomorrow.

Today is the day of salvation!
Don't miss your open door of opportunity!

Amen! The time for those who are walking in spiritual darkness and sin need to repent before it is to late! God is telling those who have separated themselves from Him to change your ways, repent of your sins and be saved! God bless!
There will come a time when the Holy Spirit will stop drawing and He will shut the door and leave. . .

A great message shared in Spitit and in Truth
Godbless you sis

For Christians there is a great sense of "urgency" for the lost and unsaved. We want to shout, "hurry - don't delay!!!! If you wait, it may be too late!!!" Because one day, the Holy Spirit WILL leave...

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
