Prophesy and teaching
Pastor Paula Baker\On
And the Lord would say, there are doors and doors and doors and more doors. There are
so many doors that you would almost think that you were on the Price Is Right. There are so many doors that you don’t
know which one to choose. And so you look at this one, and you look at that one, then you say maybe I don’t belong over
there, and maybe I’m not good enough to go in that one. But, I am saying to you today the children are called to arise
and come into your destiny and know that you are worthy of all the things I intend to bestow on you. Come on, rise up, come
on through those doors, run through the doors and do not hesitate any longer. The doors were put there so you will know the
places you’re to go into. Everywhere you see a door is a place for you to enter into. Know that this is a new season
and a new timing of My doors. Every door that I have placed in front of you is a strategic door and a set time, and know that
you are called to arise and go through those doors.
As we were listening to the praise and worship I began to chuckle up there, because I
had asked the Lord what to use, and He said to use Steve Swanson’s c d from Thursday night of our conference, and it
was really kinda interesting because as I’m sitting there, he’s singing about doors and opening the doors. And
I thought, WOW, I didn’t remember that was on there. And then during Sunday school this morning, Fred brought out the
prophesy the Lord gave on October the 9th , which is pretty awesome, and will be pasted on our web
sight. Some of us got some copies this morning. One of the things that was interesting, was when Fred was reading back what
was said when I prophesied. I don’t remember what I prophesy. I read it and it was like I’m hearing it for the
first time. When I read it or I listen to the CD, I just go WOW, WOW, that’s really cool. So as he was reading this
this morning I just went wow, because in one part of it it says, "Let My light shine in you, open all the doors in you. In
your spirit, your mind and your physical being." So we even have doors in us that have been closed to the Lord, that we need
to open. And there’s some doors in us that have been open to the enemy, and we need to close them. God is talking about
doors, doors and more doors. This year, the new year, is going to be a year of doors, which is a year of opportunity. Even
if it’s a door you have to shut, because it is either corrupt or evil, or it’s just stealing your time, then your
gaining something. So it’s still a door of opportunity to bring more of God into you. Okay, lets go to Proverbs chapter
8. The Lord has shown me some more doors, and some more things He wants us to Know.
Proverbs 8 :34-35
"Blessed is the man who listens to Me watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. For whoever
finds Me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord."
So there are doors that belong to God. And someone who is waiting at the doors and watching at the doors is
someone who is blessed by God. Why? Because wherever there is a door there is activity. Where there is a gate there is activity.
There is something going on inside those doors. God gave me an awesome revelation last night about this subject, about doors
and waiting at the doors, its really awesome. We’re going to get into that in a minute.
"A foolish woman is clamorous; she is simple and knows nothing. For she sits at the door of her house."
We can sit at the door of our house, and rest in our own knowledge, our own understanding, our own anointing,
or we can wait and watch at the door of the house of the Lord. You have to remember now, you are the Temple of God. We’re
not talking about a church building made out of stone and steel, concrete, bricks or whatever. But when we’re waiting
at the door of the Lord we will not be foolish, because we will not be resting in our own insight, in our own anointing, in
our own knowledge. So we don’t want to be foolish by sitting in the doors of our own houses thinking we have everything
we need and that we are able to instruct others.
Job 3:10 says.
"Because it did not shut up the doors of my mother’s womb."
So there are doors to our wombs. We have physical wombs in our bodies, and there are wombs in the spirit where
we conceive the things of God. Now Job was upset, he wasn’t happy with his life, so he was really wishing his mother’s
womb had been closed. But he calls it the door to the womb, to be closed so he wouldn’t be born. So there are doors
in wombs, and I believe God is giving us some keys for those who physically and naturally want to conceive, and those who
spiritually want to conceive. Because conception is easy, but bringing something forth into birthing is a long process and
it can be a hard process. It can be a process that weighs heavily on you just like job’s life weighed heavily on him.
Job 38:8 it says.
"Or who shut in the sea with doors."
So even when God created the world and He formed the seas, He shut the seas in so they had a boundary.
"Or who shut in the sea with doors."
Verse 11 "This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop."
So even the Lord God in creation used doors. Job says, He shut the doors of the sea, and you can come no farther.
That’s another key. There are things going on in the world, and things that are going on in our own lives that we can
shut the doors to those things. You’re not coming any closer to me. The door is shut to you and I have set a boundary
for you. God’s word is full of wisdom. In here is His wisdom and understanding and His counsel, and besides that, there
are so many treasures in here. The keys and the doors, because He has given us the keys to the kingdom, did He not? If He
gave you a key, there must be a door that the key fits. There are so many doors, so many doors, because these are doors that
I didn’t talk about last week. These are brand new doors.
"There are everlasting doors to be lifted up and the King of Glory shall come in."
There are everlasting door, doors that are there perpetually, all the time. And we can command them to be
open. Open up you everlasting doors that the King of Glory might come in. He will come in.
"Guard the doors of your mouth."
So there are doors over our mouths. Have you ever said something and you just wished you could take it back,
but you couldn’t. But you know, sometimes there are things we say with our mouth that are not necessarily mean, harmful
or evil things, and then there are things we say with our mouths that are just not scriptural. All of the body of Christ has
some religious spirits. Praise God, we go from Glory to Glory to get rid of those things, because sometimes we think we know
everything in the Bible. So sometimes we’ll speak something that is not scriptural, but we believe it, when really,
we should be shutting the door. A long time ago a young woman, so its probably been 10 years ago, 8 years ago, something like
that. A very young girl, she was probably 12 at that time, came to my house with PJ my daughter, and I was making a glass
of tea at the counter. My back was to them, and the young girl asked, Paula, are there animals in heaven? And I opened my
mouth to say no, and she asked, do animals go to heaven? I opened my mouth to say no, and literally, and I do mean literally,
the Holy Spirit grabbed a hold of my head, because I was turning around to look at her and say no, people go to heaven when,
but animals don’t go to heaven. The moment I opened my mouth, the Holy Spirit a hold of my head to keep me from turning
and said, do not say that, and I went, OH, OKAY, I won’t say that. Now she wanted an answer, so I asked, well, do they
go to heaven? He said, is Jesus coming back on a white horse or not? And I said, oh yeh, okay, there are animals in heaven.
So I turned around to her and I said, Jesus is coming back on a white horse, so I know for a fact there are horses in heaven,
and if God wants any kind of animal in heaven, He can have any kind of animal in heaven He wants. She said, I’m so glad,
because my dog just died and I was so hoping he went to heaven. I just loved my puppy. God literally shut the door of my mouth
literally grabbing a hold of me and spoke very loudly, don’t say that. So sometimes we may say something about the kingdom
of God because we don’t know any better. So I just pray every time I go to open my mouth, if I’m going to say
something incorrect, that He’ll stop me. He did not want me to hurt that little girl, because she was not yet saved.
She did get saved, she’s a woman now with children, and goes to church every Sunday. I could have made her mad at God
by not taking her
doggy to heaven.
"Jesus is the door."
Jesus is the door, He is the only way, He is the way the truth and the light, and nobody goes to heaven except
through Jesus Christ. Jesus is a door isn’t He? If it says Jesus is a door, then Jesus is a door. Amen? I aught to look
that up, kinda courious. I love doing word searches. My concordance no longer has a cover, cause I love to look things up.
So I looked up that word door in John 10:9, in the Greek. The Strong’s number in 2374 if you want to look it up yourself
later on, and it means portal. Jesus is a portal, He’s the way. He’s the way you get there. Now just think, the
door is in you. We have a portal inside of us, a door, the door inside of us, and we only sometimes open it. We go around
doing our daily work and things, and never realize the doors in there going, here I am. I’m with you, I’m open,
I’m a portal lets fellowship. So I thought that was very interesting.
Then the Lord showed me something I’d never seen before. Look at this.
John 18. This really blew me away. I searched it out, and searched it out, and searched it out, because it
was such an awesome revelation.
"Now it was Ciaiphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people’
And Simon Peter followed Jesus and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with
Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. But peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who knew the high
priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought Peter in. Then the servant girl who kept the door said to
Peter, "you are not also one of this mans disciples, are you?" He said, "I am not."
Now most of you probably know those scriptures, and you’ve read them as many times as I have, but the
Lord began to show me something about this. Lets go back to verse 15.
"Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest."
Who was the other disciple? Yes, John.
When your known by the high priest, you can walk right through the door and nobody stops you. You can walk
right into the courtyard of the high priest and nobody even asks you for identification. It did not say he was known by the
servant girl that kept the door. It said he was known by the high priest.
"But Peter stood at the door outside, then the other disciple who was known to the high priest went out and
spoke to her who kept the door, and brought Peter in."
When your known by the high priest you can go in and out, through the door into the courtyard of the high
priest, and you can even go get somebody else and bring them in there with you. You can go get them and you can say to the
one who is the keeper of the door, I want that one to come in here with me. And because of your positioning, your ranking
with the high priest, their going to allow you to bring somebody in. Have you ever been with someone who wasn’t saved
yet, when you were near them and you prayed for them, they experienced some of the Glory of God? Why? Because you’re
already in the door and when you touched them, when you were around them, when you prayed for them, the Glory came on them,
because you were able to draw them into the courtyard of the high priest. I also thought it was very interesting that it was
a she that was the keeper of the door. She was a server. There’s a scripture in the Bible that says, "I would rather
be a door keeper in the house of my God. " And here was a servant girl who was a door keeper for the high priest. I just thought
it was very interesting.
"Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, "you are not also a disciple of this msn, are you?"
She had discernment. The keeper of the door had discernment of who belonged to who. "And he said, no I’m not. I’m
not one of His. So I got really intrigued by all that, because everything in the scriptures is for our teaching and for our
learning. So there are everlasting doors. There are doors into the courtyard of the high priest. Doors in out own lives. There
are doors and those that are keeping watch over those doors. There are holy that angels are keeping watch over. The door to
the Garden of Eden is guarded by 2 angels with flaming swords, that’s so that no one can go in there. And there are
doors of evil that are being watched by demons that will try and draw you in there. Have you ever gone to a place that’s
known for its evil, that’s known for its perversion, that’s known for its wickedness? You can feel it. Whoo-ee,
this is not a good place. Its because there’s an evil watcher, an evil angel that is stationed at the door of that evil
place trying to draw in the unaware.
I want to go back to something, you don’t have to, you can look later.
In Proverbs 9:13 I read to you,
"A foolish woman is clamorous, she is simple and knows nothing. She sits at the door of her house."
Her house, not the Lord’s house, is an evil house.
"On a seat by the highest places of the city."
The highest places of the city were the places of idolatry where they worshipped and sacrificed.
"To call to those who passed by who go straight on their way. Who ever is simple, let him turn in here. And
for him who lacks understanding, she says to him, stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he does
not know that the dead are there. That her guests are in the depths of hell."
I wasn’t going to read that part today in case there were people here who that might frighten, but your
all pretty mature Christians. So there are watchers at doors and that foolish woman is one of them. Watching at her door,
and the dead are in her house.
I was so intrigued by all this, its like, Lord I see what you’re saying, you’ve been talking about
the doors. You’ve been talking about all the different doors and there’s things you want us to know. So I get
out my concordance again, I want to look up something I’d been thinking about. I wanted to look up the servant girl
and the gate keeper.
So in John 18:17
"So the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter."
Now when I looked this up in the concordance, what it gave me was another word for door. In the Greek, #2377
which came from 2374 which said portal. But 2377 said a watcher, a gate warden. Now I’m looking this up to see who the
servant girl is, and she’s not in the concordance. Servants not there either. The girls not there for that scripture.
Just the word door. It just said, the servant girl who kept the door was a watcher, a gate warden. She obviously was not a
real girl, she was a watcher, she was a gate warden, and she had control over who came into the courts of the high priest,
but you won’t find her in the concordance. She’s not there. When you go to look her up it just gives you another
word for door, and then it says a watcher, a gate warden. She’s not in there, isn’t that interesting? They have
the word TO, they have the word GO, they have the word DO, but they don’t have the word GIRL or the word SERVANT for
that scripture John 18:17.
God is saying some very strong things during this time and during this season about doors. He has set before
you an open door. He has set before you doors of life and death and He says choose life. Your coming into a season this next
year of many doors. Many of these doors are going to be open, or will be opened by a watcher, a gate keeper, especially for
you. You have not stepped through yet, but your going to. This is going to be a year of acceleration, a year of doors, and
a year of us learning how to use our keys to get into the doors.Prophesy
And the Lord would say to you, that I have called you to come up, come up, come up. You
have been in the trenches, you’ve been crawling around on the ground. You’ve been in the warfare and you need
to come up above the war and look and see your future. You need to come up above the battle and see the doors that I have
opened before you in the heavens. The door that I have opened for you in the earth. You will see your doors and you will see
your seasons and you shall begin to walk towards them, and you shall go through them. You shall go through those doors. So
rise up above the battle, rise up through worship. Rise up through intercession and come up high, come up high. You’re
seated in heavenly places. Come up high and sit there and look and see the doors that abound to you. Where I am opening doors
to My people, My children, the ones that I love. I am opening those doors and I have already told the watchers to allow you
to come in. And I have already told the enemy he cannot refuse you entry, to stay out of your way. So come in, come in with
boldness, come in in authority. Come in, come in, come in. Teaching
I’ve had several different people ask me lately, how do we war over our prophesies?
How do we war? The Bible says in
1 Timothy 1:18
"Timothy, war a good warfare over your prophesies."
I’ve been asked by 3 or 4 people lately how we do that? My pat answer has been, pray over it, decree
it, and speak to things that are not as though they are. But I’m going to tell you what happened to me the other day.
It changed my Theology. You know an experience will change your Theology in a heart beat. It could take 20 years of teaching
to get it into your head, but one experience and whow, you’ve got a whole new theology of what God does and what He
means. So the other day, just a few days ago, I was reading the prophesy that Dennis Cramer gave to Dale and I at the kabode
conference, and it’s the first time that I had sat down and read the whole thing through. I had listened a couple of
times to the tape, then Fred was gracious enough to transcribe it for me. So I’m sitting there and I’m reading
it and I’m just wowed by what was said. God, this is awesome what your going to do. Its not because of us, but what
He wants to do in this area and this region. I’m thinking, I’ve got to war over this, and pray over this, and
I’m not sure where to start, what to say, when all of the sudden, I was holding it with both hands, and both of my hands
went straight up in the air and this is what I did to war over those prophesies. Both hands just went up, whoosh. Sometimes
when I go to take communion, my hands go whoosh, right up in the air, and I didn’t put them there. Sometimes I’m
just asking God to bless the communion and my hands go straight up in the air. Well that’s what happened with that prophesy.
I was holding both sides of the paper, both hands, and I said Lord, and about that time, straight up in the air and what came
out of my mouth was, THY WILL BE DONE, THY WILL BE DONE, THY WILL BE DONE, THY WILL BE DONE. Over and over and over again.
I just kept saying it, I couldn’t stop, and the presence of God was all over me. I suggest that you all get your prophesies
out and hold them up to the Lord and begin to declare His will be done, and it will be. After I had said it about 25 times
I was finally able to add, thy will be done in my life. Thy will be done in this place. Thy will be done in Indiana. I’m
not sure of what all I said.
The Words He’s giving us are life and they are instruction, and He wants us to get it. It is given to
us to know the mysteries. That’s what the word of God says. Its given to us to know the mysteries. One mystery we haven’t
gotten yet and that we’ve not cried out for, at least I haven’t. Maybe you have, maybe you guys do, but sometimes
I’m behind the times. I’ll cry out for anointing. I’ll cry out for healing. I’ll cry out for words
of prophesy. I’ll cry out to God for wisdom. You know, I really can’t say that I cried out to God in that, I’ve
got to have it or I’ll die format, for wisdom. I’ve asked for wisdom, I’ve prayed for wisdom, and in what
I call my daily prayer I’ve asked for wisdom, knowledge, understanding, on and on, it became mechanical. But I have
not gotten on my face and cried wisdom, wisdom, give me wisdom, give me wisdom. I have now though and you’ll see why.
Turn back to the book of Proverbs to the 8th chapter as I release the word of the Lord, you can read along with Me.Reading
And the Lord would say to you that wisdom has been standing at the doors and she’s been crying out to
you. She has a message to give you. But you have come in and out of the doors and you have not sought her counsel. It
doesn’t matter, because she still has the message to give you. And as you come in and out of the doors
listen for the cry of wisdom. For she stands at the doors to cry out to you. To give you what you need to Reading
The Lord would say as you begin to seek wisdom, even though your going to be seeking wisdom
for the doors your to go through, and to the locations of the doors, wisdom has much more to tell you than that. Wisdom has
many things to share with you if you will listen. You will hear and you will gain knowledge.
Proverbs 8: 12-21
And the Lord would say to you, there is more I long to give you. There are treasures,
treasures unknown and untold to you, that are for you, but you have not found them. You have not come to the place of asking
for them. Ask. Ask wisdom she knows where they are, and she knows how to get them. Ask wisdom.Reading
And the Lord would say to you, that wisdom loves to grow with you. Wisdom loves to be
with you. Wisdom loves to teach. She will teach you, she will train you and she will not hold back from you any wisdom that
you need. She delights to be with the sons of men. She delights to be with you, and she has much to teach and train you.Reading Proverbs 8:32-36
And the Spirit of wisdom waits at the doors to impart all that she has. She’s fill
of rejoicing, and she’s full of instruction. And if she reproves you, don’t get mad, just learn.
And the Lord would say to you that this is a day and an hour that I am causing you to come up in wisdom and
power. This is a day and an hour I’m asking you to lay down mans wisdom. This is a day and an hour that I am asking
you to stop seeking the advise of the world, the instruction of the world. I’m asking you to turn off those things that
offer you advise, for they are only a form of godliness. They’re only a form of intelligence. Turn off those things
that are not Me, that are not wisdom, and listen for wisdom. She’s calling out to you with a loud voice. Turn off the
other sounds. Turn off those that offer you advise and instruction of the world, and open your ears and turn towards the door
of wisdom. Today I will bring you to the door of wisdom, I will bring you into the door of wisdom, and I will let you pass
through the door of wisdom. And all the wisdom of the world, and all the wisdom of man must stay outside the door of wisdom
of My Spirit. They cannot cohabitate. They cannot commingle. My wisdom is pure. It is from above, and not from beneath. It
is pure and it is Holy, and you must leave your own wisdom, the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of man outside the door
of wisdom. Leave it there, you don’t need it. You will feel as though you’re only now beginning to learn, that
you have not learned anything your whole life till now. But that is okay, because the wisdom that you need is for now. The
wisdom that you need is for the hour that’s coming upon earth. The wisdom that you need now is how to prepare for the
future. So your not to late. You’ve not been left out. You can come in. But you must come in alone without your wisdom.
Without mans wisdom and without the wisdom of the world. You must lay it down, you must lay it down and you can walk through
the door of wisdom. And you will be known as you are known.
Thus saith the Lord.
