Psalm 100:4-5 “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”
The Scene: The gates* into heaven (pearl gates with gold posts) through which the righteous people must enter.
Psalm 118:19-21 “Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.”
Likewise, God’s people will go in and go out of the holy city, the New Jerusalem, by way of the gates. Revelation 21:21 “The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.”
Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.”
All whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter through God’s gates:
- Jesus is the gate through which all must pass to gain access to heaven. He is the only way to salvation, through belief in Him, the only Son of God, our Savior.
