2015 and the Key to the Door

key-in-old-door29-450x221

We recently turned our calendars from the year 2014 to the year 2015 and we look to this year being even a more awesome year for us at Janesville Apostolic Ministries and the Kingdom of God than any year before it. We believe a great number of souls will be added and with it a greater power of God.

Recently we at JAM received a prophetic word that just confirms this; we have been told that we have a “key”. As we look in the word of God we see many instances in which Jesus or the angels have keys to open doors. But we find Jesus giving the keys to Peter in Matthew 16:19, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind in heaven.” Peter then in Acts 2:14-39 we find Peter using the keys to this Kingdom which have never been closed. Whenever anyone holds or has been given a “key” in the word of God, it is referring to the authority that this person or persons have been given.

And what are keys usually used for? ” Unlocking or locking doors! So the second part of the prophetic word is that there is a door, a very old-looking door, meaning it’s been closed for quite a long time. So the leaders of Janesville Apostolic Ministries have been given the authority to open this door. So what is behind it? Well that’s the very question that kept running through my mind, could it be “Great Faith”, the ability to perform greater miracles, and so on. But as I was pondering this one day, I heard the voice of our Lord Jesus Christ say “do not limit Me!” Many times Jesus can’t do the things He would like to do through us because in our finite minds we limit what He can and will do.

So we recently built a door, put a lock on it and placed it in front of our congregation to symbolize what the Lord was telling us. Let me tell you that the day we had set to do this, the presence of Jesus Christ was very heavy, it was like His Shekinah Glory was there to usher us into this new realm. We then unlocked, opened, walked through, and every person in the building followed us through in agreement to what God is about to do. Revelation 3:8, “I know thy works:behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” We place no limits on what Jesus Christ wants to do in and through us and all the glory is HIS!

  1. I loved having everyone be able to walk through that door at the end of service. It was like walking into the newness of God. Thank you!
