Jesus has already opened doors of blessing for His people. He not only opened the door of salvation, but He also opened the door of healing for us and no man can shut it.
Isaiah prophesied many years ago concerning the coming Messiah that He would bear the sicknesses and diseases of us all. (See Isaiah 53:4–5.) When the prophet spoke, he was looking into the future. Isaiah prophesied about Jesus offering Himself as a sacrifice for our sins and bearing our sicknesses and diseases.
When Peter made his statements concerning the covenant of healing, he was looking back in time to Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary and to the stripes that were laid on His back. Peter said, “By whose stripes ye were healed” (1 Peter 2:24). This verse doesn’t say you are going to be healed—future tense. It says you were healed—past tense. In the mind of God, you were already healed at the cross when humanity’s sins and sicknesses were laid on Jesus.
Therefore, the door of healing and health is open wide to you. Jesus opened it, but it’s up to you to enter in! It is waiting for you to make an entrance. In other words, healing belongs to you now.
Jesus works on your behalf to open doors for you!
Someone asked, “How do you enter through the door of healing?” You enter by faith in what God said in His Word! The same way you passed through the door of salvation by accepting Jesus as Savior, you pass through the door of healing by accepting Jesus as Healer.
Not only is the gateway to divine healing now open, but Jesus has opened the door of divine health. That means God not only wants you to be healed if you need it, but He also wants you to stay healthy.
One way to live in divine health is to walk closely with God every day and remain in close fellowship with Him in His Word. But if you need healing, come to God and receive it because Jesus is still the Savior and the Healer.
Only You Can Enter In
No one can enter the door of healing for you. Believers can come into agreement with you in prayer for your healing; others can join their faith with yours. They can help to inspire your faith. But they can’t go through that door for you. Neither can Jesus. He said, “Behold, I have set before thee an open door” (Rev. 3:8).
Jesus was saying, “I’ve done My part. I’ve already paid the price, and I’ve opened the door for you. Now it is up to you to go through it.” In the same verse He added, “No man can shut that door on you!”
Don’t Shut the Door on Yourself
We recognize that Jesus is the One who opens and shuts doors. But when you do not go through an open door, you are shutting off access to that blessing. Therefore, you can close the gateway to your healing.
One way you can forfeit your rights to what belongs to you in Christ is by wrong living and wrongdoing. Failure to judge sin and wrongdoing can eventually result in believers being turned over to the devil if they are not careful.
When you fail to enter through Jesus’ open doors because of sin such as doubt, unbelief, or failing to walk in love—you are shutting the doors on yourself. You close yourself off from God’s entryway of blessings, provisions, and promises.
Jesus works on your behalf to open doors for you! Don’t close yourself off by hindering the work of God in your life through sin and disobedience.
Trust the Holy Spirit to help you see and recognize God’s open doors. You can enter into what God has opened for you! Remember, what the Lord opens, no man can shut.
So by faith and obedience, walk through each door and receive what God has bountifully provided for you. Let your life be a testimony to the riches of God’s inheritance in Christ.
