Doors in Revelation

Revelation 3:8 “‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. (All scripture quotations from the English Standard Version)

3:
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

4:1 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

These are the only uses of the word, door, in Revelation. They all seem to speak of opportunity, of possibility, and of choice. Good words for early in a year.

Thanks for reading.

P. S. Happy Birthday, Tolkien!
