Jesus Christ Is Coming Back! Are You Ready?

The Jerusalem Wall during the time of Nehemiah had gates all around it. The East Gate is located near the top Northern part of the Jerusalem Wall across from the Old Gate. This gate leads out to the Mount of Olives, and Jesus is to return here. This gate was to never be opened, because the Lord was to enter through it. Jesus entered through it when He rode in on the donkey before His Crucifixion.

Nehemiah 3:29 “Next to them, Zadok son of Immer made repairs opposite his house. Next to him, Shemaiah son of Shekaniah, the guard at the East Gate, made repairs.”

Ezekiel 43:1-5 “Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory. The vision I saw was like the vision I had seen when he came to destroy the city and like the visions I had seen by the Kebar River, and I fell face down. The glory of the LORD entered the temple through the gate facing east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.”

Ezekiel 44:1-2 “Then the man brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary, the one facing east, and it was shut. The LORD said to me, “This gate is to remain shut. It must not be opened; no one may enter through it. It is to remain shut because the LORD, the God of Israel, has entered through it.”

Zechariah 14:4 “On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.”

Matthew 24:27 “For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

Jesus is coming back! Let us all be ready for His return. He will return in the East!
