Gate for entering the kingdom of God
Lord Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. In this article I will explain how Christ is the gate for entering the kingdom of God. Paul said, “And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.” Hebrews 13:12-14
I am the gate for the sheep
Jesus Christ was crucified outside of Jerusalem and He is the only gate for entering the new heavenly Jerusalem. Christ himself said I am the gate “Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.” John 10:7-9
What exactly happened outside the old Jerusalem gate?
Lord Jesus is not a gate for old Jerusalem on earth, but He moved outside the old Jerusalem while taking sins of all humanity upon His cross and given His life and blood for the salvation of the whole world. What exactly happened outside the old Jerusalem gate?
He is today, yesterday, and forever
Now Christ was crucified for us, we have to follow Him in the same way, how Christ took up our pain and bore our suffering over the cross. Today we have to check where believers are standing while following Him. In times of peril and in times of plenty, faith is the one strand that should remain constant for those that walk the path and for those that believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. These are perilous times in which we live, with conflict in every corner of the globe, and technology advancing faster than we can cope, having a strong faith can be the thing which gets us through all other things. Belief is a powerful thing, and, regardless of your chosen faith or belief system, let it be what gets you through when you need it most. #Religion
