The OPEN Door!
My friend, Pastor Randy Phillips, just returned from an extended visit to Israel. He said that the tomb of Jesus is the only place that people line up for blocks to see…nothing. Because the tomb door is open and there is nothing inside the tomb, we are living a victorious life right now.
The open door of the tomb is the focus of our Easter celebration this year. I will be speaking on the open door and all the implications that it has in our lives. We will celebrate the open door. We will invite others to enter the open door by Faith.
Many of us know the scriptures in John where Jesus says that He is “the door” and “the way, the truth, and the life”. However, there are scriptures sprinkled all over the New Testament proclaiming Him as the open door.
Galatians tells us as Gentiles that we have an ALL-ACCESS pass through the door. Check out chapter 3:
13Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
We walk through the door with FAITH. That faith in Jesus as Lord, releases power of the Holy Ghost that the gates of hell can not prevail against.
