- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
3:20 I stand at the door, and knock - Even at this instant; while he is speaking this word. If any man open - Willingly receive me. I will sup with him - Refreshing him with my graces and gifts, and delighting myself in what I have given. And he with me - In life everlasting.
Re 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. The language implies that Christ is near. If they will open the door by repentance he is ready to enter and bless. If any man shall hear my voice, and open the door. Hear and obey. Then the Lord will enter, and they shall partake together of the richness of the feast.

This is what the word says to me. None of us are perfect,repent and be ready at all times for Jesus,having undefiled garments would be-cleansed from sins,and only God opens and closes doors in our lives,He will make us over our enemies,Jesus is the faithful and true witness.The Lord cleanses us from within,be happy in the lord and repent. When you here the Lords voice listen and open the door way of your heart and let him in. When we over come as Jesus over came then we shall sit with Jesus in his throne (heaven)and for us to listen to God and His Holy Spirit.

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door and I will come in and eat with him and he with me;
This meant; Jesus is available anytime, so whoever who try to seek him, can find him possibly and he'll share his grace with him.

fREE mORAL AGENCY
Man's life is in God. This means that man can't move and think without God. But since God gives him the power to decide how this will be enacted, God holds him responsible for what he does.
Free moral agency is for a being, whether an angel or man, to decide whether to use for good or evil what God sustains him to do. That is, I can't move my finger or eyes without God enabling me to do so. But God lets me decide whether to use my finger or eyes for good or bad. Then, he punishes or rewards me accordingly.
That's why animals are not held responsible for good or bad actions. They do not have the will power to make decisions.
Yes, God sustains and provides for all human functions. Even a little sparrow can't fall to the ground without God. But some men make the choice to kill the sparrow for evil purposes. And for that he is held responsible. That is, it is man's choice, not God's.
So to sustain something is one thing. It is necessary for the thing to exist and function. This shows God's goodness and love. And for this, God holds us responsible.
To put it plainly, I can't make a decision without God enabling me to do so. But God holds me responsible for the decision I make.
Let us make the choice to follow Jesus. BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK.

God is always looking for those who are ready to move with him. Now its optional for human kind 2 accept or reject Him in there hearts.Those who accept Him always obtain FAVOUR from God "I'll dine with him.
