The 3 Gates at the Eastern Doors in New Jerusalem…have you ever really thought about them? I mean really? What are they for – just 3 open doors for one huge crowd or are they doors that 3 different groups of Believer’s will walk through, or will need to walk through in order to enter into The Great City of God? To tell you just how good God truly is – He is allowing all of us to know and understand these Gates now, ahead of time – God’s Truth:
The Gates of the City
30 “These shall be the exits of the city: On the north side, which is to be 4,500 cubits by measure, 31 three gates, the gate of Reuben, the gate of Judah, and the gate of Levi, the gates of the city being named after the tribes of Israel.32 On the east side, which is to be 4,500 cubits, three gates, the gate of Joseph, the gate of Benjamin, and the gate of Dan. 33 On the south side, which is to be 4,500 cubits by measure, three gates, the gate of Simeon, the gate of Issachar, and the gate of Zebulun. 34 On the west side, which is to be 4,500 cubits, three gates,[h] the gate of Gad, the gate of Asher, and the gate of Naphtali. 35 The circumference of the city shall be 18,000 cubits. And the name of the city from that time on shall be, The Lord Is There.”
Remember last year, I did a post on “WE ARE THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN”? Well, I knew nothing of the Tribe of Benjamin, nothing. Now, the Lord has brought up and out Benjamin and what I did know, He was going to show me in my “God School” crash course training of the everything “Old Testament”! All the days we were given for this time – Benjamin in all of it, as was Moses and the 12 Tribes. The Tribe of Dan is not included in the tribes mentioned in End Times events – but are they? Yes, they are. The Tribe of Dan is the “unbelievers”, the “worldly”, the “idol lovers”, basically, the deaf, dumb and blind that overpopulate this earth today. How about that one!! I could not make this stuff up and again, I’m just not that smart to know this on my own!
The 3 Gates into the City, the East Gate that Jesus said He would come through – that is His “Door” that will be opened to all who comes through “Forgiveness”. The other 2 Gates, those are called The Enoch Door, those that come and enter through Repentance and the last one is the Elijah Gate, those that enter through Truth. (These were not given in their orders of entry which is Enoch, Elijah and Jesus.)
THE BRIDE/THE CHURCH – THE ENOCH DOOR AND THE GATE OF BENJAMIN
See, The Bride and The Church, they have been made to see the sin in their life and the sins of the world or that fill the world and they have come to the City by way of repentance. They have asked for forgiveness for their former way of life and sins committed during their time of ignorance. They saw the “Light” so-to-speak through this Message which represents Enoch – as Enoch in his pre-flood era and time, did preach and spread the Word throughout asking people to turn away from the wicked and the wicked ways of all that had spread through the land. The exact time periods of this is not necessary as it was an “AGE” that was counted by God. Those that came through that “AGE” will be taken just as Enoch was, alive and they were not subject to the wrath that unfolded upon the land/earth. These are those that came in through The Message of Repentance.
THE JEWS/ISRAEL, REMNANT, SLEEPING CHURCH – THE ELIJAH DOOR AND THE GATE OF DAN
Non-Believers, Jews, Israel – now, this is the group who will walk through the Gate of Elijah as they will come in by way of Truth. This group will be made to see that Jesus really was and is the Son of God, The True Messiah and The Savior and the only way to God the Father, Abba, is through belief in Him. Like Enoch, those that come through that “AGE” or Gate will enter the Holy City and will come just as Elijah did, alive and they will be removed before God’s Wrath completing unfolds again upon the earth. These are those that came through The Message of Truth.
THE SINNERS AND LOST AND MORE… – THE JESUS DOOR AND THE GATE OF JOSEPH
Now, the last Gate, the Jesus Door…this is all who will walk through the Gates of the Holy City through FORGIVENESS! Jesus died, but was risen after 3 days so this group, they just very well may be a quite DIVERSE GROUPING! This is for whomever the Lord forgives and who are we to know just who that will be. Hopefully, this will be all that are born of Him so done should perish…this should be our prayer to the Lord that all is forgiven and will be given access to Heaven on Earth, right? This would be those that would come in through the “AGE OF GRACE” or really, FORGIVENESS which is through Jesus Christ and was The Message of Love and Forgiveness.
The Gate of Benjamin in Ezek. is Enoch. The Gate of Dan in Ezek. is Elijah. The Gate of Joseph is Ezek. is Jesus.
How can God The Father cut these days short as I posted prior? Are you screaming via your keyboard “Okay Mary Beth, but what about the full-filling of the Fall Feasts? What about Yom-Kippur and Day of Atonement? Huh?” Well, the thing is – those Feasts are not really needed now are they? Jesus does not have to go through the rituals and traditions of the Law of Moses as it was really completed when He came the first time – they just didn’t believe it…they missed what Jesus really did in His Walk because they were trying so hard to prove He couldn’t complete them…they did not realize He already had! He does not need to full-fill any Jewish Feast Days here on earth in order for the Jews to be brought to their Messiah. This is why they will be brought in through the Door of Truth, the Elijah Message/Gate as this is who they are waiting to hear from anyway, aren’t they? Jesus is all 3 Doors, all 3 Gates and all 3 Messages. This my friends, is why and how the Lord can and will cut the 240 day period down to just ONE COMPLETE PERIOD of 120 days of REPENTANCE, TRUTH AND FORGIVENESS and will bring it all “Home” within three 40-day periods of time.
The Temple of God will not be “rebuilt” on the Temple Mount as people think…God is the Temple Mount, He is the Mount of the Temple – our Mount as WE ARE HIS TEMPLE! We are also “gates” in which many will come to the Lord through and many “doors” will be sent out to be opened to the North, South, East and West but all will be brought in through the GATES ON THE EAST – one of the 3 Gates listed above as those who may already “know the Truth” have yet to Repent; those who may have Repented do not yet “know the Truth” and those who have not yet been Forgiven…well, they neither “know the Truth” nor “have Repented” in order that they may be “Forgiven”. See how this is working here? If we, His Children, are His True Temple, which we are, would not His Temple reside or be “built” wherever His Children reside? And, where exactly will that be? New Jerusalem, Paradise? This is the meaning of Ezekiel’s vision…the portions that are allotted gives us a glimpse of where “tribe” will be given their Heavenly Fields wherein lies their Heavenly Treasures, do they not? It is where their Pearls have been cast. If their Pearls are cast to the swine, then they have NO Heavenly Fields in which to uncover their Treasures promised us by the Lord God Himself.
More to come and I will continue this further this evening…
