2024, The Year To Soar Through The Open Door.

Jesus is the Open Door!

Every ten years, the Holy Spirit reveals the heart of God's Kingdom. In 2020 / 5780 on the Jewish calendar, we entered a new decade with many spiritual significances.

Hebraic letters have a numerical value on the gematria. A gematria assigns a numerical value to a name, word, or phrase by reading it as a number or sometimes using an alphanumerical cipher to interpret the values.  

Year2020 - 2030 / 5780 - 5790 is the decade of the mouth. There is so much power in your mouth that Proverbs 18:21 states, "Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences."

The seventeenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is "peh," and its numerical value, or gematria, is 80. On the Jewish lunar calendar, 5780 or 2020 on the Julian solar calendar was heaven's announcement to use your mouth to bring forth God's purposes for your life.

The fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is called "Dalet," and its numerical value is the number four. The spiritual significance of the number four represents the words poor in spirit, door, and lift, realizing that you possess nothing without Jesus.

Symbolically, the Dalet also represents your choice to open yourself to the door of your dreams or to remain alienated from God's open door of hope set before you.

It wasn't by chance that the adversary launched his attack nearing the close of 2019. COVID-19 entered the conversation in the U.S. in January 2020 when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention alerted the nation of the outbreak abroad. By March of 2020, everyone was mandated and marked by the mask. The spiritual significance behind this was that we would remain silent and live a life of despair at the onset of our new decade. The world remained disquieted and threatened by the words of the manipulative media mountain of influence as the death tolls arose, and many fought for their lives. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared the COVID-19 public health emergency was officially over as of May 11, 2023.

God always has the last due season Word amid Satan's sadistic attacks. I immediately received a Word from the Lord to declare to the hearers on our morning prayer call from The Message Bible in Galatians 3:13-14, "Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the Cross: He became a curse and, at the same time, dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham's blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God's life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing - just the way Abraham received it."

Abraham operated by the Blessing of the Lord in Romans 4.  And Believers, too, have been mandated to seek and speak the oracles of God. On the onset of the pandemic, I wasn't waiting until the world declared that it was over! I sought the Lord's response in Job 22:28, “You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And the light [of God’s favor] will shine upon your ways." God's eyes constantly move throughout the earth in search of someone to partner with Him and decree His Word so that He can reveal Himself.

Lean into this Word for 2024...

Here we are in the fourth year, 2024, of the decade of the mouth, the decade of breakthroughs and recovery! This year is the year of the open door with many opportunities. The year to open your mouth and speak God's Word only by calling those things into existence like God did in the beginning when circumstances contradict His promises.

It's time to come out of bondage and confinement! In Jeremiah 1:9, "The LORD reached out his hand, then he touched my mouth and said, "I am giving you the words to say." You will come out this year on top with the Lord's words that He has given you to say to the mountains that stand in your way. You will get over to the other side with God's Words.

Jesus is the Door! The Door is open to all who are willing to enter through Him as stated in John 10:9, "I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely], and find pasture (spiritual security)."

Jesus is the Door for Your Salvation "Sozo"

When you enter through the Door of God's Word, Jesus, you will experience His rescuing power and protection amid challenging times. You will be kept alive, delivered, healed, made whole, and liberated throughout the new year. God has made a reservation for your preservation through Jesus!

Matthew 1:20-21
Amplified Bible

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus (The Lord is salvation), for He will save His people from their sins.”

Jesus is the Door for Your Ears to Hear

To experience all that God has for you this year, it's essential to keep listening to Jesus so that faith comes and increases your belief and receivership to execute the promises of God on demand. God has established His desire for you to listen, obey, and yield to His chosen Son, Jesus. When attending to God's Word, carefully consider how you listen. You will be wise and gain more understanding with a teachable heart. Practice listening and following through to complete your cycle of obedience with rewards to follow.

Proverbs 4:20-22
The Message

Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice. Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart! Those who discover these words live, really live body and soul, they’re bursting with health.

Luke 9:35
Amplified Bible

Then a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, My Chosen One; listen and obey and yield to Him!”

Luke 9:35
International Standard Version

Then a voice came out of the cloud and said, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen. Keep listening to him!”

Luke 8:18
Amplified Bible

So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.

Hebrews 5:11
The Message

I have a lot more to say about this, but it is hard to get it across to you since you've picked up this bad habit of not listening.

John 1027
Amplified Bible

The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.

Jesus is the Door for Your Mouth to Speak

All born believers think, speak, and act immaturely when entering God's kingdom. Holy Spirit is the Teacher, and He's after your spiritual growth to mature you, so you will steward wisely over the possessions He puts in your heart and hands. Learning to speak the language of faith and being skilled in righteousness takes time as you put away childish ways. You can tell a child by their speech, thoughts, and how they reason and respond, especially during times of crisis. Keeping your spirit full of God's Word and Jesus as the Watchman over your lips to keep you from speaking thoughtlessly. Your mouth makes your salvation a reality and will preserve and promote you throughout this year.

1 Corinthians 13:11
Amplified Bible

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.

Psalm 141:3-4
The Passion Translation

God, give me grace to guard my lips from speaking what is wrong. Guide me away from temptation and doing evil.

Psalm 34:13
Amplified Bible

Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit.

Proverbs 13:3
Amplified Bible

The one who guards his mouth [thinking before he speaks] protects his life; The one who opens his lips wide [and chatters without thinking] comes to ruin.

Luke 6:45
Amplified Bible

The [intrinsically] good man produces what is good and honorable and moral out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart; and the [intrinsically] evil man produces what is wicked and depraved out of the evil [in his heart]; for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart.

Jesus is the Door to Your Identity

Knowing who you are and where you have come from will open doors of opportunities to boldly fulfill your purpose without compromising your beliefs and values to get results. Daily acknowledging every good thing that is yours in Christ strengthens your identification, communication, and participation so that you effectively share every blessing you have in Him to the glory of God.

Philemon 1:6
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

[And I pray] that the participation in and sharing of your faith may produce and promote full recognition and appreciation and understanding and precise knowledge of every good [thing] that is ours in [our identification with] Christ Jesus [and unto His glory].

Acts 17:28
Amplified Bible

For in Him we live and move and exist [that is, in Him we actually have our being], as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’

Jesus is the Door to Your Rest

God has promised rest for all who trust Him. This year, be diligent in entering God's covenant of rest by hearing His voice and not hardening your heart. Fear, doubt, and unbelief are little foxes that steal your belief in God's promises and prevent you from entering His rest.

Whatever you put your hands to this year, work from a rested place with wisdom after seeking and seeing what the Father is doing just like Jesus did. Wisdom will be poured out to unlock mysteries within you. The things that your eyes haven't seen yet, nor ears heard or recognized within your spirit.  

John 5:19-20
The Message

So Jesus explained himself at length. “I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does. The Father loves the Son and includes him in everything he is doing.

Hebrews 4:1-3
The Message

For as long, then, as that promise of resting in him pulls us on to God’s goal for us, we need to be careful that we’re not disqualified. We received the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but the promises didn’t do them a bit of good because they didn’t receive the promises with faith. If we believe, though, we’ll experience that state of resting. But not if we don’t have faith. Remember that God said, Exasperated, I vowed, “They’ll never get where they’re going, never be able to sit down and rest.”

Jesus is the Door from Where the Holy Spirit Pours

Joel 2:28
Amplified Bible

“It shall come about after this That I shall pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.

Isaiah 32:15
Amplified Bible

Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fertile field, And the fertile field is valued as a forest.

Proverbs 1:23
Amplified Bible

“If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

John 16:13
Amplified Bible

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future].

Jesus is the Door to Explore 

The secret things belong to the Lord! This is your year to get curious and explore all you've inherited in Christ as a royal citizen. The mysteries of God belongs to kings, lords, and the gods in the earth.

1 Corinthians 2:9-12
The Passion Translation

This is why the Scriptures say: Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine — these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers. But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things. After all, who can really see into a person’s heart and know his hidden impulses except for that person’s spirit? So it is with God. His thoughts and secrets are only fully understood by his Spirit, the Spirit of God. For we did not receive the spirit of this world system but the Spirit of God, so that we might come to understand and experience all that grace has lavished upon us.

Deuteronomy 29:29
Amplified Bible

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed and disclosed belong to us and to our children forever, so that we may do all of the words of this law.

Proverbs 25:2
The Message

God delights in concealing things; scientists delight in discovering things.

Proverbs 25:2
Amplified Bible

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Jesus is the Door to Your Dreams

This year, I believe that you will awaken with a dream like Jacob saying, "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was unaware of it." You will dream like Joseph with interpretations and strategies to fulfill them. This year will be a year to dream again as God restores your good fortunes. You will sing as you experience the goodness of God. You may have experienced a heavy heart, but you will come home laughing with armloads of blessings this year.

Genesis 28:10-22
The Message

10-12 Jacob left Beersheba and went to Haran. He came to a certain place and camped for the night since the sun had set. He took one of the stones there, set it under his head and lay down to sleep. And he dreamed: A stairway was set on the ground and it reached all the way to the sky; angels of God were going up and going down on it.  13-15 Then God was right before him, saying, “I am God, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. I’m giving the ground on which you are sleeping to you and to your descendants. Your descendants will be as the dust of the Earth; they’ll stretch from west to east and from north to south. All the families of the Earth will bless themselves in you and your descendants. Yes. I’ll stay with you, I’ll protect you wherever you go, and I’ll bring you back to this very ground. I’ll stick with you until I’ve done everything I promised you.” 16-17 Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, “God is in this place—truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.”  18-19 Jacob was up first thing in the morning. He took the stone he had used for his pillow and stood it up as a memorial pillar and poured oil over it. He christened the place Bethel (God’s House). The name of the town had been Luz until then.  20-22 Jacob vowed a vow: “If God stands by me and protects me on this journey on which I’m setting out, keeps me in food and clothing, and brings me back in one piece to my father’s house, this God will be my God. This stone that I have set up as a memorial pillar will mark this as a place where God lives. And everything you give me, I’ll return a tenth to you.”

Psalm 126:1-6
The Message

1-3 It seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God returned Zion’s exiles. We laughed, we sang, we couldn’t believe our good fortune. We were the talk of the nations—“God was wonderful to them!”
God was wonderful to us; we are one happy people. 4-6 And now, God, do it again—bring rains to our drought-stricken lives So those who planted their crops in despair will shout “Yes!” at the harvest, So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.

Jesus is the Door to Your Restoration

God is faithful to restore and replace the lost years as He gathers you to Himself.  You will never be put to shame again.  2024 is your year of restoration and celebration.

Deuteronomy 30:3
Amplified Bible

Then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes [in your return from exile], and have compassion on you, and will gather you together again from all the peoples (nations) where He has scattered you.

Genesis 28:15
Amplified Bible

Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go, and I will bring you back to this [promised] land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.

Joel 2:25-27
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

25 And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. 27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.

2024, The Year of the Open Door and Opportunities. As you enter through Jesus, the Door, you will be like a tree planted by the rivers of living waters. God will fill your spirit with His Spirit, and you will decree a thing out of your belly and be established.

Just speak the Word only! And you will be healed, delivered, set free, and experience breakthroughs that only God's Word can provide.

Matthew 8:8
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

But the centurion replied to Him, Lord, I am not worthy or fit to have You come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant boy will be cured.

Job 22:28
Amplified Bible

“You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And the light [of God’s favor] will shine upon your ways.

No one needs to permit you to speak. God has authorized you to speak His Word only. What God reveals to you in the dark, speak in the daylight.

Matthew 10:27
Amplified Bible

What I say to you in the dark (privately), tell in the light (publicly); and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops [to many people].

2024, the Holy Spirit will be demonstrating miracles outside of the four walls of the church building. The building will be the place for training to reign as royalty. The marketplace will be a place to execute your faith by practicing and demonstrating the Word of God. This year, you will become skilled in righteousness and use your words to meet the needs of others.

This year you will have what you say by calling things that be not as though they were. You will arise this year and consider not the wind or the cloud, no longer stagger at the promises of God through unbelief, and give glory to God by faith like the father of faith, Abraham. This year, you will look away from all that distracts at the joy that has been set before you like Jesus.

Hebrews 12:2
Amplified Bible
Looking away from all that will distract us and focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, regarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].

This is your year to trust the LORD and find new strength. Your year to be strong like eagles soaring upward on wings; you will walk and run without getting tired (Isaiah 40:31). This is your year of  more! More of God's grace, more favorable outcomes, more peace, more joy and laughter, more dreams, and more prosperity. The more you see and say, the more you will more have what you say and experience miracles, signs, and wonders on demand as the Holy Spirit dominates your vocal cords in the decade of the peh. "mouth."

Let's agree and decree on the onset of our new year, "I declare that this is my year of the open door with many opportunities that I will take by faith. I will partner with God and decree a thing by calling things that be not as though they are, and God will do His part to establish His Words that I release from my mouth. I am expecting great things this year by the demonstrations of my faith. Jesus is the Door of my salvation, hearing and speaking. He's the Door to my identity, my royalty and rest. He is the Door of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. With Christ, I can explore and dream again as God restores my good fortunes. My God has given me a great expectant end. This is my year to soar and experience more.  I believe I now receive all that God has in store for my 2024.”
