Are the Windows of Heaven Really Open?
By Dr. Kluane Spake
Why do we have soooo many Church Conferences and articles about “How to Open the Windows of Heaven?” The church of Jesus Christ has far more inheritances than it realizes. Salvation means you don’t have to blast open the Gates to penetrate heaven and with your prayers in order to see the power of God released.
Really? Do your prayers open the windows of heaven? Can you plead, shout, holler, yell, sing, dance, or petition enough to get God to answer you? Do you have to tear them open? Why? Is God unwilling to answer you? And anyway, just how good do you have to be?
We end up with a faith that is based on what I do (works) rather than what Jesus already did.
Why do you pray for what you already have?
Why do you pray for what God has already done?
That same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead does already dwell in you. He positioned Himself IN YOU, and that means YOU carry that same Spirit in your mortal body – you can sit where He sits. He knows what you will face and He ever intercedes. The Holy Spirit intercedes for you, and Jesus stands in the GAP for you.
Some tell how Isaiah prayed, “Oh, that You would rend (tear, rip to pieces) the heavens! That You would come down!” (Isaiah 64:1).
You may have prayed this hundreds of times, but here are some questions to ask:
Is the veil rent in the tabernacle? Of course.
What does that mean? Everyone can now enter beyond the veil – into what was before the mystery.
Did Jesus already “come down?” Yes, of course!! Any questions? Did Jesus finish His work? That’s what He said!
I hear questions like, “If the blessings of God are in the heavenly realms, how we bring them down?” My friend, that’s what Jesus already did! Believe it!
Yes, Malachi is conditional promises based on your obedience. But, be careful to not live in the Old Testament so much that you miss the power of the New! Don’t just believe out of your own experiences! Change your mind – refine your belief systems – discover greater Truth… and you will see more happening in your life!
All the promises of God are Yes and Amen! What you believe in your heart, so it shall be!
Jesus, the Pattern son, was baptized and the heaven’s opened (Mat. 3:16) and …. The Bible never says that the heavens closed again! God the Father tore open the heavens because He issued in a whole new era of dispensation.
Open = open wide, loosen, start, plow, to be loose, to be free!
You have the promise of walking and living in an open heaven – NOW, if you choose to believe. If you live under closed heavens, they are closed for you. Jesus said that the Kingdom of Heaven is within — and that means most warfare is between your ears! You have to believe!
Over you is an Open Heaven.
No demonic power can close what God has opened. If God opens, who can close it? God opens doors for us. And when He opens a door, no man can shut it (Rev. 3:8).
Acts 7:55 “But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 “Look,” he said, “I SEE HEAVEN OPEN and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
Like Stephen, can you say this out loud with me? “I see Heaven OPEN!”
This Open heaven releases treasures!
The already open windows of heaven mean that spiritual communication is ongoing, just as it was before the Fall. Jesus restored us into right positioning.
The ALREADY open heaven provides the entrance to all that is new. The open heaven means you can do nothing to open it! It already is!!
Today, take what is yours… Align your thoughts to this truth! Be conscious and begin to delight in the fact that the Spirit of God dwells in you and become alert to the FACT that an Open Heaven surrounds you at all time.
Discover the intense passion of God’s love for you.
When Jesus met Nathanael, he said, “Hereafter YE SHALL SEE HEAVEN OPEN, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”(Jn. 1:51). It is possible to see it. Jesus referred to Jacob’s dream at Bethel, when he saw a ladder set up on the earth, that reached up to heaven, and Angels ascended and descended on it. God promised to give him the land (Gen 28:12-14).
In Psalm 78, the manna that the Israelites ate in the wilderness was associated with the doors of heaven being opened. Psalm 78:22-25
Then I SAW the doors of the Temple, the Tent of Witness in Heaven, open wide (Rev. 15:5).
I looked up and saw that heaven had opened. Suddenly, a white horse appeared (Rev. 19:11).
I just read a well know preacher who said, “We can stimulate the heart of God to open the windows of heaven for blessing in our lives.” Listen… it is not by personal effort! What a relief to know that a loving God choses to keep Himself near. You and I are not responsible to open heaven! It is not by your might or your power, but by His Spirit that we can come boldly to the throne.
Why not use this Scripture (also in Isaiah) instead? “This is what the LORD says to his anointed, to Cyrus … TO OPEN DOORS BEFORE HIM SO THAT GATES WILL NOT BE SHUT: I will go before you and will level the mountains ; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. ” (Isa, 54:1-2).
