It is satisfying and heart-stirring to be reading the Bible and have something jump off the page and say, “Here, here, pay attention here!” That’s exactly what happened last week while reading in the Gospel of Matthew.
In Matthew 25, Jesus gives the parable about the ten virgins and the oil. Read it if you need refreshing on the details! But verse ten says, “and the door was shut.” When THAT particular door was shut, I believe it was speaking of end times, the church is gone and there are no second chances.
After reading that…it occurred to me that when Noah and his family entered the ark, God Himself closed the door to the ark. Genesis 7.16 says, “and the Lord shut him in and closed the door round about him.”
Saying all of that – this blog could go a couple of ways but I want to encourage all readers, Today, the door is wide open for any who will call on the Name of Lord and be rescued! Our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is The Door and He still bids us “Come.”
My dear friend always says as long as there is breath, there is hope! Yes, we are still living in the day of the OPEN DOOR!
Please be sure you are on the right side of The Door!
