Portals to heaven can come in literal ways such as streams of light coming through clouds just when everything seems cloudy in your life.
It can come in a December snowfall just when everything in your life seemed dingy and gray.
Portals in pages comes at just the right time, as well.
For example, scripture comes to us from thousands of years ago and seems at the same time to apply to our current era - even our personal lives.
Why would God speak to us through clouds, snow and The Bible at just those times when we need it the most?
It’s the same reason that the incarnation had to come when mankind was at a crossroads - literally when all roads led to Rome.
Could God really personalize and time your portals the way He did the incarnation?
The answer lies in the portals of pages that record the story of the wise men.
For one, we must presume that they had it in their hearts that they needed a king-God for they told Herod that they had come to “worship” him. In this respect, they were looking for someone greater and purer than themselves.
There’s a great deal of humility in such an internal posture and that same stance occurred before the baby Jesus: “they fell down…”
Like the star and the timing, the intersection of knowing we need someone greater than ourselves and that Someone answering at just the right time has all the earmarks of a heavenly portal.
PORTALS TO HEAVEN: The story of the wise men is the story of today… a loving God displays a literal portal for those who truly seek Him. We must be in a seeking and humble posture in order to recognize that portal.
‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him’.…When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him.
Read Matthew 2 for this remarkable, portal-for-today.
