Jesus doesn’t say the following statement to atheists or unbelievers, but to Christians (to the church of Laodicea, which stands for the church of the followers of Jesus, who form the body of Christ): “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” (Jesus in Revelation 3:20; NIV)

God has no door

As the holy saints (Hebrews 10:10; Colossians 1:22), we have unrestricted access to God at all times. Grace, which has reconciled us to God, makes that possible. Because God can only endure saints in His presence (sinners do not come into the presence of God, remember your ancestors Adam and Eve: 1 sin = kicked out of God’s glorious presence).

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16; NIV)

Anyone who, of course, despite the shed blood of Jesus, still sees himself as a sinner who must be forgiven, has no fellowship with God. He doesn’t open the door for Jesus (who was brutally murdered for us).
