Careful who you open the door

Careful who you open the door
.The Bible speaks of different kinds of doors. Some that open if many blessings, and others that open to attract trouble. Today we will look at some of these doors, for identification, and identify what is behind them.
1. The door of sin (Genesis 4:3-7) "3 And it came about the time that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat thereof. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering. 5 but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And so Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. 6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth, and why is thy countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door, with all this, you shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him "
Abel gave God the best we had, and Cain simply gave.
(Hebrews 11:4) "By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and dead still speaks"
Our giving is a sure indicator that this is where our heart. The offering of Cain trivial, shows when the valued his relationship with God, and in what place he had God in his life.
(Genesis 4:7) "sin lieth at the door"The Bible tells us that sin was at the door, was not in the house yet, which indicates that Cain had a chance to do one of two things:
a) let in the sinb) not allow sin to enter his house.
But unfortunately we all know the choice of Cain.
So also in the case of Cain, sin in our lives is at the door, and we are responsible for that sin does not enter our homes, because we know that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) " For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. " And this is exactly what happened to Cain became a murderer.
Cain did not want to give the best, he would not do what was right. Thus he opened the door to sin, and sin entered.
Cain was angry because God had looked the offering of Abel pleased, but he was not willing to do what was necessary to also receive the blessing from God.
a) Get angry when others are blessed and prosperous (Envy)b) Do not keep God first in your life
Cain gave God the first fruits, because God was first in his life;But Abel gave God the first fruits, for God was number one in his life.Where do you have your God in your life, what you give?Offerings or Leftovers??
Some have to sin to the door, others have hand on the handle, and others already have opened the door and are dominated by it, when never should have opened the door, look at my brothers loved many of you want God rebuke the devourer for your finances but as thieves walk before the Lord God and we deceive ourselves, that the Word is the Word and what written is written, Jehovah God is not alms from anyone, and if you want it all I urge you do well in the love of Christ to obey His Word so that you do well at all.
(Mal 3:6-12) "For I the Lord do not change for you, O descendants of Jacob, are not consumed. 7 From the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye say, Wherein shall we return? 8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. And ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for you, the whole nation have robbed me. 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that. 11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of the soil, and your vine in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. 12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye land, saith the Lord of hosts. "
This is critical for many reasons, one being that once you open the door to sin, that leads to another door ....... An open door that no one wants to ......
2. DOOR TRIAL (Genesis 4:11 Romans 6:23) "11 Now therefore you are cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy hand thy brother's blood; 23 For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. "
Cain dropped a curse because of sin(Genesis 4:11) "Now therefore you are cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy hand thy brother's blood."
THE JUDGE IS A DOOR(James 5:9) "Brothers Do not grumble against one another, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door"
This reminds us of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11) "1 Now a man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2 And kept the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, the placed at the feet of the apostles. 3 But Peter said, Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and of the price of the land? Unsold, did it not remain your own? and sold, was it not in your power? Why have you conceived this thing in thine heart? You have not lied to men but to God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words, fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard it. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out and buried him. 7 was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what had happened. 8 Then Peter said, Tell me, Ananias got for the land? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9 And Peter said Why agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? Here's feet to the door of those who have buried your husband, and they will carry you. 10 Immediately she fell down at his feet and died, and the young men came in and found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things. "
a) They agreed to sell a property together and give all the apostles, but selling the property, he stole a part, without telling anyone and therefore not lying to men but to the Holy Spirit.
b) When he went to deliver the money and lied about the amount fell dead. After his wife had the opportunity to tell the truth, but he did, then tells Peter: Here at the door the feet of those who have buried your husband, and they will carry you. Immediately she fell down at his feet and died.
With some trial footsteps are approaching, are about to reap what they sow. The only remedy is to repent!
Did not God is merciful? Sure, but none of us were alive. He is great in mercy (Ps. 57:10) "For great is your mercy in the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds."
But there is a big difference between a person who hates his sin and to become holy peeling; Being ready to repent of them.
A person who is continually in sin, without any worry that one day their souls will be judged (Hebrews 9:27,28) "27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to save those who await you. " And they never repent of their sins.
For people who continue to live in sin, judgment treads are approaching, many people think that the door where Christ is narrow and does not believe that the road is too narrow, and only in this way walking in obedience, remember that not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven.
Indeed, the whole world is held guilty before God. (Romans 3:23) "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"3. DOOR OF FAITH (Acts 14:27, Hebrews 11:1-6) "27 And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to Gentiles, one is therefore faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old. 3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and dead, still speaks for her. 5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death, and was not found, because God had translated him, for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please God, because it is necessary that cometh to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. "
(Hebrews 11:27) "And having come, and had gathered the church, talking about how great things God had done with them, and as he opened the door of faith to the Gentiles."
Prior to this, the church was entirely Jewish, but now God has opened a door of faith for us Gentiles.
a) In order that we may also hear the gospel of Christ, and receive it through the sound doctrine of Christ which gives us a balance in our lives.b) Through this door, the sound doctrine of Christ we find many more doors, which lead to specific groups, cities, and even individuals.
DOOR TO EPHESUS:(1 Corinthians 16:8-9) "8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 9 For I have been great and effective door open, and there are many adversaries. "
God had opened a great door and effectual to the apostle Paul to preach the gospel in a city idolatrous and pagan as was Ephesus.
The apostle says in verse 9: "there are many adversaries" The enemy will always try to raise opposition and persecution when God opens the doors. But I think the devil is defeated, and that the gates of hell not prevail against the church of Jesus Christ the Son of the living God! Amen???.
(Mat 16:18) "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it."
(Jer 20:11) "The Lord is with me as a mighty terrible therefore my persecutors will stumble and not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed, because they thrive; everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten."Rather than break the spirit of a faithful serve, before a much deeper desire to continue with the task God has given him (Nehemiah 4:1-23).
DOOR Troas:(2 Corinthians 2:12) "When I came to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ, although I opened door in the Lord."
This door was not opened Paul on his first visit, but until his second visit. God opens doors when and where and to whom the Lord wants. Sometimes we wish that God may open a door immediately, this is not very wise, because if God has not opened the door because we want is not yet God's time we always have to wait on God's timing .
Therefore many ministries fail, because ministers were launched without God's launch; (Ps 127:1) "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, in vain candle Guard ".
Because the doors God opens, no one can shut, and that God closes doors no man can open. (Revelation 3:7) "To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy and true, who holds the key of David, who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens".
DOORS present help OR RELEASE:(Acts 16:23-26) "After having many stripes, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. Who, having received such a charge, thrust into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. Then suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened from prison, he drew his sword and was about to kill supposing that the prisoners had fled "
God always going to open the doors of a very present help in the midst of your problem. Just as he did with Paul and Silas, and so will you. Auxiliarte and God wants you free, but it is very important that you understand that it is not for you nomas.
Relief and liberation are a divine purpose!God loves you, but you also want to love someone else through you.(Acts 16:29-34) "And he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas. And brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? They said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, you and you and home. And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptized, he and all his. And them into his house, he set food and rejoiced with all his house, having believed in God. "
God aided Paul and Silas, with a purpose. The jailer and his family turned to the Lord.a) God wants to prosper, but also to prosper others through youb) He wants to heal, but also wants to heal others through youc) He wants to save you, but also wants to save others through youAND FINALLY .................4. DOOR OF SALVATION(John 10:1-10) "1 Verily, verily, I say unto you: He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him, for they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This parable spake Jesus unto them but they did not understand what he was saying. 7 Again therefore Jesus unto them, Verily, verily, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me will be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy: I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly. "
Thus returned Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you: I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, out, and find pasture "
We invite you right now if you do not know Christ, or are not sure you are saved, you surrender to truly and with all your heart to Christ today.
Because no other door that ETERNAL LIFE DRIVE(Matthew 7:13-14) "Enter by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and few there be that find it. "(Proverbs 16:25) "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death"
