Thus says The Lord … “I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessings” Ezekiel 34:26
In 2015, as a church, our hope, prayers and desires are for constant showers of blessings on all of our lives and on every place the truth of Christ is taught and preached, and on all who hear and profess the gospel, that we might be filled with the fruits of righteousness.
The Prophet Ezekiel in the 34th chapter, prophesies the coming of Christ and of the most glorious days of His church. Ezekiel points out that the Lord will be Israel’s shepherd. He speaks of a season of showers that begins ‘A Reign of Blessings’. My hope for us is that 2015 will be the beginning of such a season, a time when all church members, the places surrounding “God’s hill”, (The Church of the Open Door), and the world will all be blessed.
Given that the church is the ‘Tree of Life’, all its people are to bear the fruits of salvation. Our faith in Him yields spiritual food to all souls in the church, in the community, the city, and in the nation. All are The Lord’s flock. Therefore, let our constant prayer be for a continual “Reign of Blessings” upon all who enter the sacred doors of the Church of the Open Door, with open hearts, open minds, and open spirits. Amen.
