When God put Noah in the ark He shut the door behind him (Genesis 7:16). When the time was right God spoke to Noah and said, Go out…bring out…breed abundantly, be fruitful, and multiply on the earth (Genesis 8:17). The days of the shut door are over, it’s time to open up the gates and doors. Some will try to delay the shut door season, but God says that season is over, come out! The Lord is inviting us to declare be opened, be lifted up.
The Lord wants to open the ancient doors in our bloodlines. These open doors are going to bring into our life the river of God that was inaugurated in the Garden of Eden “Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers” (Genesis 1:10). These ancient doors are likened to dams that have been set up by “man” to control how much we receive. But God is opening the ancient doors and is lifting up the heads of the city gates. These doors and gates in our lives must be opened so the King of glory can come in. When city gates are shut and ancient doors are locked the river can’t get in. Declare them be opened inside of you, the days of shut the door are over, it’s time to open all doors, even ancient doors.
Psalm 24:9-10 says, “Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.”
Dams are put in place to control how much of the water gets to flow down stream. They are gates and doors placed on us to control us, but the Lord is breaking off all control and heaven has opened the floodgates. To receive the abundance we must declare all ancient doors opened. We know how to live in exile being controlled but we are about to learn to live in abundance because this is a kingdom that has no end, no control and limits. There is so much to explore, to discover, to learn and there’s more than enough room for everyone to fulfill what they were made for. Declare the ancient doors be opened that the king of glory may come in! The iron and clay kingdom is falling once and for all!
