In 2016, the Lord spoke to me that 2017 would be the Year of the Open Door for us. And it has been just that for us in so many ways. God opened amazing doors for us including being published regularly on Charisma Magazines online sites reaching hundreds of thousands with the written word, guest spots on local television, involvement in local pastor’s gatherings including the National Day of Prayer event, and so many others.
Now as we prepare to enter into 2018, the Lord spoke to me that this is the season to walk through the open door. More doors are open for us that simply require us to walk through them. In Revelation 3:8, our Lord Jesus says, “See, I have set before you an open door, and no man can close it..” In my naivety, I used to see the door as standing widely open with me only needing to step through it. And sometimes that is exactly the way it is for us as God opens doors before us.
But sometimes the image is a bit different. There are times when we stand before a door and knock, waiting for it to open and we hear someone say, “Come on in. It’s open.” Open? No, it is closed. We can’t see beyond the door. We are still stuck on the same side we’ve been on. But the voice insists! “It’s open. Come on in!”
Doors that remain in the closed position but are unlocked are considered open. We stand right now in front of doors that God has supernaturally unlocked for us. All that is separating us from stepping through is our action of obedience. So, we choose to believe and obey. I declare that 2018 is for us and you, The Year of Stepping Through the Open Door!
Six to eight weeks ago, the Lord spoke to Margie one word that complements the word the Lord gave me: “EXPANSION”! As we step through the open door we will experience expansion. Isaiah 54:2-3 speak of what 2018 will look like: “Enlarge the place of your tent. And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings: Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations and make the desolate cities inhabited.”
It’s time for expansion! We must prepare! We must by faith, turn the knob, push the door and see it swing wide in front of us. Then we step through and believe for His glory!
Just the beginning of this month, Margie, in prayer again heard the Lord say, “It’s time to go on TV now.” We’ve been praying about this for a long time but waiting on the timing of the Lord. I had already been in talks with the station manager and tentatively set a date for early 2017 but this word came as a clear confirmation. The Lord followed it with a vision where Margie saw my dad as a little boy in front of a TV set! The implications are clear! There is a “Larry Nix” out there somewhere who will encounter Jesus through our media outreach! Just think of the multiplied thousands God has touched through Dad’s ministry and it all began in front of a TV set. This is expansion!
Three days following that vision, I received word from the TV station that they wanted to “barter” with us and in exchange for us providing volunteers to clean their facilities – our airtime is paid for! Hallelujah! We need to upgrade some of our video equipment, we need a new media computer, we must add more lights, and we need to make some changes to our stage design, including floor covering, sound panels, etc. These upgrades alone will be in the thousands of dollars. These changes will enable us to produce a quality and anointed program that will impact tens of thousands through our streaming, TV and other media outreaches.
And it is time to step into a new dimension of what I call, facility security. The wonderful building, we are currently leasing is still up for sale with an ugly “For Sale” sign in the front yard. This sign must come down! It is time for the status quo to change!
Will you help us “stretch the curtains?” I am asking you to pray about an end of the year financial gift to help us in this expansion season. Your gift of any amount will be huge for us right now! I believe that your faith-filled prayers and your financial gift will add just what is needed. You and a company of others will stretch the curtains so many more will experience the goodness of our Lord Jesus!
We will not spare or hold back! Now is the time to walk through these doors the Lord is unlocking before us. Thank you again! Together we will see His glory impact this generation in GREAT AWAKENING!
Yours for Awakening,
