"Behold, I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it. (Rev 3:8 KJV)
Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary says:
I HAVE SET — Greek, "GIVEN": it is My gracious GIFT to thee.
OPEN DOOR — for evangelization; a door of spiritual usefulness. The opening of a door by Him to the Philadelphian Church accords with the previous assignation to Him of "the KEY OF DAVID." -- JFB
What is that "OPEN DOOR, WHICH NO MAN CAN SHUT" as according to Jesus Christ Himself?
THE "OPEN DOOR" FIRST AND FOREMOST IS THE DOOR OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
First, and foremost, we should realize that this "OPEN DOOR" is the DOOR OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. And believe it, or not, men and churches attempted to shut this Door leading to the Kingdom of God!
TO OPEN A DOOR YOU NEED A KEY! WHAT IS THE KEY TO OPEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD?
To open a door you need a key. What is the Key that will open the door of the Kingdom of God? It is no other than the KEY OF KNOWLEDGE (Luke 11:52, and Mat 23:13)! This KEY OF KNOWLEDGE opens every door leading to the Kingdom of God, which is the ultimate destination of every human being!
CHURCHES AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS ATTEMPTED TO SHUT THE DOOR OF THE KINGDOM BY THROWING AWAY THE KEY OF KNOWLEDGE, WHICH IS THE MESSIANIC KABBALAH KNOWLEDGE!
"Woe to you Torah scholars! For YOU TOOK AWAY THE KEY OF KNOWLEDGE. You didn't enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in, you hindered." (Luk 11:52 HNV)
"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For YOU SHUT UP THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AGAINST MEN. For you neither go in, nor do you allow those entering to go in. (Mat 23:13 MKJV)
