The Year of the Door
Seeing the Door
These are my notes from Collision on 1-1-14
The Hebrew Calendar, the Holiday of Rosh Hashanah, marks the beginning of the New Year. According to the Hebrew tradition, the earth turned 5774 years of age on Rosh Hashanah, Wednesday, September 4, 2013.
The Hebrew alphabet assigns each letter a numerical value which also has a pictorial meaning. Dates are picturesque, revealing the Divine design for that particular year. Ayin dalet is “74″ in Hebrew. Ayin is the number 70 and dalet the numeral 4. Ayin came from a picture of an “eye” and therefore speaks of “seeing” and “vision.” Dalet means “open door” and was derived from the picture of a tent door tied back.
The door means opportunity and combined with the eye for seeing this truly is the year of Breakthrough!
Regardless of the doors that are set before you this year we must keep our intimacy with The Door first! For He (King Jesus) truly is our first love!
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” This figure of speech Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. (John 10:1-6 ESV)
So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:7-10 ESV)
There are other doors that will need to be shut permanently, For these doors are not doors of opportunity but destruction and if left open have the potential to allow the evil one to steal, kill, and destroy!
Then he brought me back to the door of the temple, and behold, water was issuing from below the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was flowing down from below the south end of the threshold of the temple, south of the altar. Then he brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around on the outside to the outer gate that faces toward the east; and behold, the water was trickling out on the south side. Going on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, the man measured a thousand cubits, and then led me through the water, and it was ankle-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was knee-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was waist-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen. It was deep enough to swim in, a river that could not be passed through. And he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he led me back to the bank of the river. As I went back, I saw on the bank of the river very many trees on the one side and on the other. And he said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, and enters the sea; when the water flows into the sea, the water will become fresh. And wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish. For this water goes there, that the waters of the sea may become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes. Fishermen will stand beside the sea. From Engedi to Eneglaim it will be a place for the spreading of nets. Its fish will be of very many kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea. But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they are to be left for salt. And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.” (Ezekiel 47:1-12 ESV)
Things I see for 2014
This is a year that the remnant will see the glory of God return to the body, I believe the presence of God will be ever increasing in the year to come!
I see the division among the body of Christ increasing in the areas of Hyper-Grace and Cessationist, As a remnant rises so will the religious spirit!
I believe that the persecution of the church is just getting started in the US and we will see a ramping up of this as we go through this year and the years to come!
I have seen explosions, rioting and serious devastation to a huge bridge which looked like it was broken in half probably from an earthquake, Though I did not see exactly where this all took place I believe it all was in the US, It was all very dark and I believe that it can be everted by repentance and intercession.
The American Airlines Plain Dream
I was watching from a elevated platform an American Airlines plane taking off over a highway with power lines going over the highway and I thought the plane would never clear the lines but to my surprise it did and then suddenly I was in a car and watching the plane continue to ascend and then all of a sudden the wing broke in half and the plane flew in a 180 and crash landed and instantly their was fire trucks and ambulances there and I asked My wife did you see that and she said no.
When praying today for our nation specifically on the area of abortion I heard the phrase the cup is full!
II Chronicles 7:14
Without repentance I believe that we will begin to see many of things the Prophets have been prophesying for our nation as well as others!
I believe that we will begin to see the ancient ways of the interaction of God with the Prophets this will begin to become more common once again! Example Elijah.
This will be the best of times for the remnant and the worst of times for the world!
The Spirit and the Bride say Come Lord Jesus!
