Revelations 22 - The gate into the city

The gate into the city

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Those who love Jesus and are saved by his blood, through faith, do his commandments from a heart of love.

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

They may have eternal life, entering in through the gate of the city. Jesus is the entrance to the city of God.

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
John 10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
John 10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
John 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
John 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

We follow Jesus through the door, the Porter is the Holy Spirit who allows us to enter and exit following the Shepherd. Jesus must bring us through the gate and into the kingdom of heaven.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Rev 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

A dog is anyone outside the covenant with God. We are in Christ, not outside. Sorcerers trust the power of satan and will perish with him in the lake of fire. Whoremongers sell people for sex and lust, including pornography, Beware lest you partake of their deeds. Murderers are killers, but this does not include instruments of protection. God ordained death to those who murder. War brings killing, to protect our country. People who kill in the name of God, are not of God. God will avenge. Idolaters, are those who worship things other than God. Included in the list our liars. Satan is the father of lies. We are to speak the truth, in love.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

This list includes the fearful and unbelieving, perhaps these are as the dogs. Afraid of what others might think, instead of fearing God. Fear of man, cowering in the dark, instead of the having fear of God and coming to the light.

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Do not fear Jesus, He is God's light sent to forgive our sins. He is loving you and is the way through the gate of the Holy City.
