God created all that was created in six days and on the seventh day, He rested. Each of these days was an indeterminate period of time in which a particular aspect of creation was accomplished.
Peter limited these days to specific time periods by saying, a day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day.
Of this time, six days relates to mans time, and the seventh day, to the Millennial Kingdom of God. The first four, thousand year days relate to the Old Testament, and the next two, thousand year days, to the Church Age.
This time (six days) came to an end in the year 2000, and the time of transition into the Millennial Kingdom of God (seventh day) began.
This door is at the end of the Church Age and is at the point of transition from the Church Age into the Millennial Kingdom Age. This is a conditional promise to those who have a hearing ear.
The Apostle John was transported from his time, to the end of the Church Age, and he heard the voice of the Lord, knocking.
It is very important to notice that this door opened only when John heard the voice of the Lord knocking, and responded (After this I looked). The result of a right response is being able to hear things which must be hereafter. Jesus is yet knocking on the door of our temple, seeking those who will hear and respond. Thus, our ability to hear spiritually is very important.
When Jesus was twelve years old, He went into the temple of His day and time, and astounded all those who heard Him (Luke 2:42-47). When Jesus becomes twelve years old in His corporate body, He will again come into the temple. This time, He will come within the temple that we have become.
During this year, 2012, when Jesus becomes twelve years old in His corporate body, He will begin to come within His present day temple (us).
All that Jesus did in a single body, during His first coming, He will again do through a corporate body, in the progression of His second coming.
The end-time visitation of our Lord is about to begin, as the final judgments have been delayed.
In the Old Testament, the glory came upon. In the New Testament, the glory comes within.
May each of us who desire our Lords best, separate ourselves from all that could hinder our hearing the Lords knock upon our spirit.
If we respond, as John responded, Jesus will come within our temple to affect the world of our day and time, beyond anything that has ever been seen.
The greatest visitation ever is about to begin.
