“and the foolish said to the wise, ‘give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out”, “but the wise answered, saying, ‘since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves”, “and while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut
Agony of many people today
A lot of people worldwide are experiencing so many battles in their lives. A lot of lives are fragmented, a lot of believers are weeping day and night because of what they are passing through. So many people are depressed, in distress, disappointed and frustrated as a result of closed doors.
Many people are battling with closed doors. Everywhere is closed. Worst of all, some people had opportunities before in various places, but due to one reason or the other the doors are closed against them. What used to be is no longer be.
Beloved, the battle against closed doors must not be taken lightly and should not be handled with levity at all. I counseled a bank manager who lost his job recently, and felt sorry for him. He has been sacked three times and i discovered that in the spiritual realm, his doors have been closed against him. I pray that no power will close doors against your life this year again in Jesus name, amen.
The bank manager is now a beggar who could no longer fuel his car. A lot of people had made several attempts in ventured but no way. Why? The doors of business have been closed against them. So no matter the struggle or the activity on the surface, nothing works because the door was already closed. Doors that would have opened to many people that will cause poverty to cease refused to open the them. You need to pray very well and probably lose your voice in the process; it will be a good thing in your life as long as the closed doors can open.
Lamentation of Paul
1 Corinthians 18:9
For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
So many adversaries are preventing Paul from getting to where god planed for him. This message must propel you into prayers. Several years ago, i prayed for a man who failed WAEC four times. He declared was over battle against closed doors of academics and challenged the witches and the wizard in his family compound. Subsequently he passed.
