Inviting the Name In with Keith Johnson (Open Door Series Part 6)

In Part 6 of the Open Door series, Keith Johnson speaks about “Inviting the Name In”. Throughout history both Jews and Christians have allowed fear, anger, and circumstances to separate them from God’s name. But our heavenly Father said He would bless every place where his name dwells. Johnson examines two “Gittites” who interacted with God’s name — Goliath the Gittite who cursed it, and Obededom the Gittite who received the Name into his home. Johnson exhorts Christian listeners to be ambassadors of the name, and for the sake of the Jew first, to proclaim it to the world so that the house of Israel may be blessed and restored. Be like Obededom, “the Gittite who got it right!”

Opening the Door with Nehemia Gordon (Open Door Series – Part 5)

In Part 5 of the Open Door Series, Nehemia Gordon teaches on the name that is the source of all blessing and at the heart of the Priestly Blessing. Gordon explains the literal meaning of God’s personal name and the power inherent in its uniqueness. With accounts from the lives of Abraham and David, he addresses the problems of ambiguity and syncretism (the spiritual mixing of seed) that arise when only the titles of God are used. Gordon discusses the great unlikeliness of the Smithfield revival and reveals a 30-year secret about a shut door — and his commitment to not shut the door again.

The Name of God in Action with Keith Johnson (Open Door Series – Part 4)

Part 4 of the Open Door Series features Keith Johnson speaking on the Name of God in Action. God is breaking down barriers of tradition and calling Jew and Gentile to search the Scriptures for truth that will allow them to fellowship with His Holy Name. Johnson explains how the Leningrad Codex and Aleppo Codex, the oldest and most complete Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible, reveal the pronunciation and the power of the name that slew Goliath, the name that is a strong tower, the name that is a song on the shofar—the name of our heavenly Father Yehovah.

The Name of God with Nehemia Gordon (Open Door Series – Part 3)

In Part 3 of the Open Door Series, Nehemia Gordon explains how the name of God, sacred to both Jews and Christians, has become hidden by time and tradition. Beginning with Roman persecution forbidding Jews to speak the name through rabbinical adaptations, translation errors and other misunderstandings, the one and only name of the Lord was superseded over time by titles—like “El Shaddai,” or “Adonai”. As the exiles of Israel and the others joined with them to return to the Promised Land, the name of the Lord Yehovah is again being sanctified and exalted.

The Hebrew Gospel of Matthew with Nehemia Gordon (Open Door Series – Part 2)

Open Door Series Part 2 features Nehemia Gordon speaking on the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew. Nehemia Gordon, a Karaite Jew and academic scholar, relates how he joined together with Keith Johnson, an African American Methodist pastor to study an original Hebrew version of the Gospel of Matthew. Gordon explains the flaws inherit in the best translations and explores the rich meaning in the word puns only present in the Hebrew text. He focuses on passages from the Lord’s Prayer, which led him to the realization that the concept of God as Father is also prevalent in the Tanakh (Old Testament). Gordon concludes with a moving account of a personal revelation of God’s Fatherly love and his willingness to carry the sin debt for us.

Discovering Common Ground with Keith Johnson (Open Door Series – Part 1)

Open Door Series Part 1 features Keith Johnson speaking on the topic of "Discovering Common Ground." Johnson relates the fascinating beginnings of his prophetic friendship with Nehemia Gordon. A dream led Johnson to Jerusalem in search of a Torah scroll and ultimately to an encounter with Gordon, who taught him to read the sacred text in its original language, history, and context. The duo’s unique partnership illustrates the “mixed multitude” that stands with Israel and the God of Israel as the people fulfill their destiny as a light to the nations.
