Open the Heavens Wide



The prophetic word is: An open heaven over our lives and church. David & Greta Peters, our prophets, confirm open heaven is God’s word for us.

Deuteronomy 28:12-13

“The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

“And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.

i. Rain to your land in season: God’s favor on your life.

ii. Bless all the work of your hand

iii. Financial blessing: You shall lend to many nations but you shall not borrow.

iv. Walk in victory: The LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath
. A condition of this; if you heed the commandments of the Lord.

v. A sudden invasion of God: Malachi 3:1 "the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple."

Six aspects of an open heaven

1. Abundance of God’s Word

Psalm 78:23-24
Yet He had commanded the clouds above,
And opened the doors of heaven,
Had rained down manna on them to eat,
And given them of the bread of heaven.

Open heaven is more than just natural blessings

One of life’s great experiences for an open heaven is when you read God’s word.

Job 23:12
I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.

Psalm 119:103
How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth.

Your spirit will be well fed, strengthened, faith increases, ready to face the challenges of the day. 

Heaven can also be closed

Deuteronomy 28:23

“That which has gone from your lips you shall keep and perform, for you voluntarily vowed to the LORD your God what you have promised with your mouth.

We struggle for success in our work, it affects our worship, prayer, God’s power, everything. Life and living for God becomes difficult. The Heavens are like brass. 
Have you ever prayed and it was like God was distant, your prayers bounced of the ceiling. 
In ministry the ground is hard, you plough diligently but make little progress. 
When the heavens are closed, as I believe they are to a measure in our nation, it can bring us to end of ourselves and to a place of desperation. Thankfully God’s prophetic word to us is open heaven. God will have the last say.

Remember when Jews were going to be annihilated as a nation. 

Esther 4:14
“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

You and I have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.

2. The Power of God

Jesus ministered in some of the hardest soil.

The spiritual climate was one of religious spirits, unbelief, and yet He had great success. What was the secret to His ministry? It was an open heaven that He carried everywhere He went. 

If heaven over your life is open, then you will have a breakers anointing, and will carry an open heaven with you everywhere you go. The power of God began to function in the ministry of Jesus after heaven opened.

Matthew 3:16
When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

3. Servant Evangelism

When a preacher who experienced an open heaven of healing, miracles, salvations, he was asked what do you think contributed to an open heaven. He replied that it was because the people had been doing servant evangelism.

4. Prayer

2 Chronicles 7:13-14
“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people,

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Prayer and fasting is one of the most powerful tools to open heaven. 

5. Veil over nations removed

Isaiah 25:7
And He will destroy on this mountain
The surface of the covering cast over all people,
And the veil that is spread over all nations.

The veil being removed speaks of breaking the power of principalities and powers that rule over nations.

In Korea in the 1900's, 2% were Christians now somewhere around 30%. It was a Buddhist nation now turned to God. Lord do it in New Zealand. 

6. The church should have an open heaven

Genesis 28:12,16,17
Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.”

And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”
