Inner impressions (like the open/closed door theory) are not supernatural revelation, nor are they authoritative.
So it is inaccurate to apply the vocabulary of revelation to inner impressions. Phrases such as "from the Holy Spirit," "God told me," "God showed me," is misleading. This is not just a matter of imprecision. It causes confusion in the minds of believers and creates the expectation that all Christians should be receiving these messages.

23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
Sit back, listen to God's word, listen to it again, look into it, listen and look some more and we will be blessed in what we do.
