Evil is still at work. Not all actions are of God. People often use “open door” theology to try to discern God’s will. We are presented with a choice and sometimes wait to see if one door closes. A new job opens up and we apply believing that if God wants me to have it then he will open up that door. There is a huge problem. The enemy opens doors too. It is called temptation. In fact, I believe that many open doors and opportunities in life are more from the enemy than from God. If Ed McMahon showed up with a million dollar check and a TV crew, I probably would say, “Get behind me Satan.” Not all doors are opened by God even though the kingdom is present.
