The Book of Revelation is
a book like no other, centered around one person. If you
want to truly know who Jesus Christ is now and who he will
be when he comes back, study the Book of Revelation. We are
told that Jesus Christ is standing at the door.
1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which
God gave Him to show His servants—things which must [a]shortly
In chapter 1 we receive a
symptomatic description of how Jesus will look in his
glorified form. For instance, in Revelation 1:8 the
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, [d]the Beginning
and the End,” says the [e]Lord, “who
is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Jesus Christ is revealed
in the Book of Revelation. There is an unveiling, a
revealing of who Jesus Christ is. He says “I am the
Almighty”. Do you know what that term means? That means
there is no one higher than Him. That means there is no one
like Him. That means Jesus Christ, the Lord Jesus Christ is
in a league completely of His own.
In chapters 2 and 3 He is
addressing Himself unto the churches.
In chapter 4 he takes the
church home to glory.
In chapter 6 the Lord
Jesus Christ takes the title deed of this earth, then when
he does this he sets into motion a sequence of events that
will bring him back to the earth in his full power and glory
to reign over his kingdom.
In chapter 6 right through
to chapter 19 we see him judging the world; and in
chapter 19 there is one of my favorite verses in the bible.
Christ on a White Horse
11 Now I saw heaven
opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on
him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He
judges and makes war.
Now what if I was to tell you that
Jesus Himself is standing at the door. Now lets go back to
stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and
open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him,
and he with me.
Now before we go into
analyzing and breaking down this scripture, I would like to
add this. One could conveniently say that the door Jesus
was referring to in Revelations 3:20 is specific to
the seven churches and how Jesus was giving them a second
chance to reconsider their priorities and return to Him.
Yes, this is true, however, it is not completely true. The
scripture is profitable and useful for all children of God
and all believers, even up to this day. Regardless of when
it was written, the Word of God never becomes outdated or
irrelevant because of time or civilization. Romans 15:4:
4 For whatsoever things were written
aforetime were written for our learning, that we through
patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Revelations 3:20 is valid even
up until this very day. So, let us have a look at this
verse and break it down into segments.
Behold I stand at the door and knock.
The door here represents
our hearts. Jesus is standing at the door. Jesus is ever
willing and ready to let us return into His presence.
Though they had sinned, the door of repentance and
confession of sins was not closed against them. Even after
explaining their misdeeds to them, He still reminded them
that there is room for repentance and the opportunity to
make things right.
However, there is a day when repentance will no longer be on
the table for every individual but until that day comes, He
is constantly nudging us towards Himself, patiently for us
to let Him into our lives and to reign.
If any man hears my voice and open the
door, I will come into him.
Now this scripture isn’t
only for unbelievers. As a matter of fact, the people who
this chapter was intended for is the Church. As believers
there are many things that fade out the voice of the Holy
Spirit and shut Him out. These things are carefully tucked
away and hidden beneath our daily schedules, interactions,
lack of time or zeal for the things of God. So, the next
time we are complaining that God isn’t speaking to us, we
should check ourselves first whether we are the ones not
listening. Jesus is saying if anyone ever hears Him, He
will come into that person’s heart and make his heart his
abode. The term any man suggests an invitation to all, not
just to the church in Laodicea or believers, but to everyone
irrespective of race, color, background, age, or religion.
Anyone that will yield to the call of Jesus, He will abide
to. This knock may be a gentle call or an impression on our
hearts. It varies from individual to individual and will
sup with him and he with Me.
Now there is a reward for
letting him in. When you let him in, he will not just dwell
with you. You will enjoy an intimacy and relationship and a
fellowship with him and how we need that. There are people
who have suffered broken lives. Has your heart been
broken? Has all hell broken loose on your life? Have the
burdens in life gotten so heavy on you and you are
struggling to find strength even to wake up in the morning,
or to get out of bed. You don’t even want to face another
day and you are holding on by the skin of your teeth. You
know the burdens of life can get so heavy sometimes and it
may feel like you just don’t have enough resources or time
to deal with everything that you have to deal with? Has
life broken your heart? Have you lost a loved one? You
don’t have to suffer in silence. Jesus is only one prayer
away. You don’t have to suffer in silence.
Suffering in silence.
In pain in silence.
Dying in your sin in silence.
Living with a broken heart in silence.
Putting a smile on for the world but crying
yourself to sleep at night.
This is something I
struggle with myself. Even when I’m not alright. If someone
asks me I always say “I’m fine”. But we don’t have to live
like this. Each and every one of us have been given the
ability to call on God. He can end your suffering. He can
ease your pain. He can save you from your sin. He can heal
your broken heart. He can heal the damage that man did to
you. He can heal the damage that woman did to you because
He loves you and cares for you. The truth is life is not
fair, it really is not fair at times. Not everybody gets
the same breaks and same opportunities and with life the
burdens and the storms will come and they can get so
difficult that you even struggle to breathe, and life can
break your heart in a multitude of ways.
Your spouse or your loved one leaves you and
moves on with their life. And fastforward two years and you
are still there trying to pick up the pieces and they have
Your business experiences difficulties through
no fault of your own. You went to every meeting, you
treated your customers right, you did everything right and
it just doesn’t work out and you are left with a broken
Your loved one dies unexpectedly, and you
don’t know what to do with yourself and you are left with
memories and a broken heart.
Your health gets taken away from you
completely out of the blue and you are there left with a
I don’t know what’s
broken your heart today but there is only one who can heal a
broken heart. The one who said “Cast your care upon me for
I carry it for you”. Jesus cares for you. Jesus cares for
you. He can heal your broken heart. You know one of the
worse things about a broken heart is that it breaks in
silence, no one knows when its broken, but you do. No one
knows when its breaking, but you do and everyday you are
wiping your own tears from your face because you have no one
else to wipe them but yourself. Some people genuinely want
to ask for help but the words just don’t come out but I tell
you today there is a knock at your door
(you hear knocking at the
door) from a man called Jesus
(you hear knocking at the
door) who stands at the door
(you hear knocking at the
door) and He says “if any man hear my voice open the
door and I will come into him or her and will sup with him
and he with me.”
Have you lost a loved one, the person who is
most precious and near and dearest to your heart and soul?
Have you lost a relationship?
Have you lost a job but I tell you today there
is a knock at your door
(you hear knocking at the door) from a man called
Jesus (you hear knocking at
the door)? He says in His Words in 1 Peter 5:7
all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
He will hear your cry. He won’t turn
you away. In Matthew 11 he says:
Come unto me all ye that labor and are
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of
for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest
unto your soul.
People will only be there for you for
so long. People will only be there for you for a certain
amount of time until they are no longer interested, and they
will move on with their lives. People will say to you “if
there is anything, I can do let me know” and if truth be
told when you need them, they are not there. But I tell you
today there is a knock at your door
(you hear knocking
at the door) from a man called Jesus. He will be
with you, even in a year like this He will be with you.
Jesus is a God that gets into your situation. He will be
with you in your broken heart, your disappointments, your
rejections, your failures, he will get in the situation with
you. Have you ever seen Isaiah 43:1-2?
But now thus saith the Lord that created
thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not:
for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine.
He takes ownership of you. Once you
let Him in, He takes ownership – YOU ARE HIS. You see verse
2 When thou passest
through the waters, I will be with thee;
He won’t send an angel, He won’t send
Gabriel, He won’t send Michael, He says: I will be with
and through the rivers, they shall not
overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou
shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon
There is a man called Jesus who
stands at the door (you
hear knocking at the door).
