Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
A door is an entry point
Door ...thura ..gk.. a portal ... an entrance ... a closing or opening ... door ...gate.
Jesus is the door to all that pertains to life
...door into the ministry ...the door into the sheepfold v1
...door into personal life ...the door of the sheep v7
The door into the sheepfold ... the designated entrance into ministry, kingdom or the father
It is only one way entry. The only way to the father Jn 14:6
To access the sheepfold ... you use the assign door ...entry.
Any other entry is by thieves and robbers ...to rob you of your blessings and send you into bondage
Jesus is the door of entry...by him we have access into the sheepfold and its privileges
By his authority and power we have to enter the sheepfold
Jesus is warning us ...some have climbed other way into the sheepfold ...not by the door
He refers to such as thieves and robbers ... not called but appropriate to themselves ministers of the gospel ... in subtle deception to lead astray, steal and rob the sheep
They have taken the ministry for a mechandise instead for the salvation of souls
Let he that want to enter the sheepfold do so by the door ...Jesus, who calls and ordains to march with him and for him
The call must be purely divine ...Jesus must know you and the devil must know you too
The door is the way into your life ... soul, spirit and body
The one who enters your door matter ...either to give life or to destroy life
Guard the door ...for out of it are the issues of life
The porter of the door must give access both into the sheepfold and to the sheep
To the sheepfold ...ministry, God ordains a shepherd
To the sheep, you are to keep vigilant at the door who you allow to enter your life, only the one the porter has opened
You have a responsibility to Hear the shepherd's voice... by letting the word abide or dwell in you richly
Hearing the word builds up faith in the unseen word sitting at the right hand of God
Faith comes by heaing his voice ... the word of God
Jesus emphatically said ... the sheep hear his voice
...on opening the door hear his voice first and judge who want to enter your life
Are you a hearing sheep or deaf to his voice?
He calls his sheep by name
... as you have entered the door, Christ recieves you into the the presence of the father.
You are now known and called by name out of the book of life, he will not blot it out.
Lk 10:20... rejoice, because your names are written in heaven
Blessed is he whose name is in the book of life
Rev 3:5 ... I will confess his name before my father and before his angels.
Only those who are his hears his voice, if not you won't and will go astray to perish
As you hear his voice daily through his word, he is reading and speaking to us as we read and meditate
Let your reins, your conscience, instruct you to follow him only
He leads them out ... in his paths of righteousness for his name sake
The sheep must be led always ... be led in your endeavours by the Holy Spirit living in you
He will put you forth and go before you ...follow him, his voice and prompting you know
Be aware that he is before you perfecting all things concerning you
I am led forth in peace and joy, blessed of the Lord.
Discern the strangers voice and flee ... it will lead you into bondage ... he will have access to enter your life to destroy it
Jesus is the door to all doors in his creation and the door to all that we seek for in this world
The door to -- wealth, blessing, finances, etc
Jesus emphatically stated he is the door.
Be vigilant therefore about how you enter and who enters the door of your life.
Satan and his corhorts will seek an opening to enter your life ... to steal, kill, and destroy.
Satanic doors presented to us looks like that of God's but a way of connecting you to himself for entry to fulfil his commission
Acknowledge Jesus the door and he will take charge. He is driving a point for vigilance for other fake doors opened to us
It is by Jesus the door, we should enter in, then we are guaranteed of being saved from all the vices and manage the resources he has given us
You shall be saved ...sozo..gk...delivered, protected, preserved, healed, do well, be whole
You will go in ...all you seek for ... and out of the door, Jesus, being led forth in peace, joy, blessing according to his word that both our going out and in is blessed
He will command his angels charge over you
And You will find pasture ..nome..gk ... food, supply, etc according to his riches in glory
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
