- Now about that time Herod the King stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
- And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
- And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
- And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
- Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
- And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
- And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
- And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
- And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
- When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the Iron Gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

DOORS OPENERS/ANGELS OF OPEN DOORS
There are some people, they are doors openers . If you are in a convoy of the president and you are heading to presidential villa, you will automatically enter the villa without any hindrance.
JOHN 18:15 -16
- And Simon peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
- But Peter stood at the doors without then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the doors, and brought in Peter.
Simeon Peter followed Jesus to the palace of the high priest in the above passage and was not allowed in because he was not known unto the gate woman at the palace. It was the other disciple who was known to the high priest that introduced Peter at the gate.
Doors Openers are those who have the doors opened to them. They have access to wherever thy go. Those who are with them have the doors automatically opened to them also. They are called ANGELS OF OPEN DOORS.
Herod had detained Apostle Peter in Acts 12:1-16. Angels visited him and brought him out through several closed doors. The main gate of the city opened unto them of their own accord. The Angel of open Door appeared to Apostle Peter, Chain that was used to bund him fell off without prayers. Peter was able to walk freely in the midst of sleeping soidiers in the night.
THE DOORS AND THE GATE DID NOT ACTUALLY OPENED TO PETER BUT OPENED TO THE ANGEL. BUT BECAUSE PETER WAS WALKING WITH THE ANGEL, THE GATE AND THE DOORS OPENED TO PETER ALSO.
He continued on his way after the angels has finished his assignment to bring Peter out.
Peter proceeded to the house of Mary, the mother of John Mark (Act 12:12) where they were praying for his release.
When he arrived to the place without the Angels. He knocked and knocked and yet did not open the door for him. (Act 12:13-16).
When he was without the Angels, he spent a lot of time knocking before the door could be opened to him,
He knocked and walked even though they knew his voice. They debate whether to open or not for a while before the door could be opened unto him.
REMEMBER A SHORT WHILE BEFORE THIS: WHEN WE WAS WITH THE ANGELS
- Several doors in the prison opened to him automatically.
- Iron gate had to him voluntarily.
- He left the prison through guards and gate men.
- Doors open voluntarily, nobody touched them.
Now, left alone, after persistent painful knocking a mere wooden door did not open after identified himself. If the Angel had followed Peter down to Mary’s house, they wouldn’t have knocked.
They would have found themselves inside.
THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT GOD WILL PLACE IN YOUR LIFE:
- Iron gates will open
- Several doors will open
- Labour will be minimized
- Harsh knocking stubborn doors will be removed.
