DOORS OF THE SPIRIT



The Jewel of Revelatory Realms
"I have set before you an open door" (Revelation 3:8, NKJV).

To visit my mother in the gothic-style apartment building where she lives on Staten Island, New York, I enter massive wooden doors with stained-glass panels. These open to a gleaming marbled lobby, reminiscent of a castle hall.

From there, an elevator ascends several floors. When I emerge, my footsteps echo through wide corridors. Doors stretch down the corridors and I wonder what souls and secrets might be beyond.


Doors can represent many things. We know Jesus is the Door to salvation.[i] Doors also represent opportunities or relationships and these may open or close. When the door to my mother's apartment opens, she welcomes me into her home.
But are there doors of the spirit, through which the believer may enter the inner kingdom or revelatory realms?
This is discussed in "Where Your Heart Meets God's," a devotional book that explores the many expressions of God's voice. E-book only $1.99.


[i] See John 10:7
