OPENED DOORS PART III
“Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” – Isaiah 45:1-3
When doors that should be opened are locked, it causes limitation, restriction and captivity. Opened doors symbolizes unrestricted access, platform for progress and advancement. In other words, opened doors signifies green light; which is permission or authorization to proceed.
Brethren, doors being referred to here is not just some metal, wood or any natural access partition. It refers to spiritual barriers preventing free access. Among the things that God has already put in place to ensure the success of Cyrus (in the assignment that God gave to him) is opened “two leaved gates”. All the forces that could make the opening of the gates difficult or impossible have been subdued. Not only that, all other things that could hinder free access like gates of brass and bars of iron were destroyed because of the might of the One that opened the “two leaved gates”. The purpose of opening the two leaved gates would never be jeopardized by anyone or anything (animate or inanimate). Opened two leaved gates is not just for access; it is to facilitate access, for the success of divine purpose; therefore, opened two leaved gates come with other benefits such as access to the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places.
Friends, I have good news for you, the two leaved gates are opened for you. No force in hell can hinder your access to God’s beauty and glory that has been prepared for you. The fringe benefits of access to the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places is a natural sequence to the opened two leaved gates.
Treasures of darkness are not treasures that belong to the devil (because the devil is often named with darkness); it refers to treasures hidden from the world but for the children of God. Treasures of darkness are everywhere! Hidden riches of secret places are riches kept away from the eyes of the world but kept securely for those that God want to give them to. Hidden riches are everywhere too. No matter the research, investigation or scientific exploration of man on the eath, the world can never discover the treasures of darkness or the hidden riches of secret places. They are spiritually hidden, they cannot be scientifically discovered. The can only be divinely allocated by God Himself.
It is important to note that Cyrus was referred to as an anointed of God. He was anointed by God for a specific purpose. Every believer is called, justified and glorified for specific purpose; to show forth God’s praise and glory and to bring abiding fruit into the kingdom of God. As long as our lives keep glorifying God and we are winning souls into His kingdom, we remain candidates for opened two leaved gates which comes with amazing blessings.
It is your turn to experience the opened two leaved gates and gain access to the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places wherever you live. Let your life keep reflecting the glory of God and keep winning souls into His kingdom!
