Gates, by Larry
I did not set out for this message, to be very long. I, only had, a couple of paragraphs, but the Lord, kept on adding to this
Gates of Nehemiah
I was reading today, in the book of Nehemiah. As I was reading, I began, to wonder, what these gates were showing. Here is what I saw. 1st gate that I saw was the sheep gate.
3 Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priests, and they builded the sheep gate; they sanctified it, and set up
the doors of it; even unto the tower of Meah they sanctified it, unto the tower of Hananeel.
Ok, here we go. This is showing, Jesus and his sheep.
Jesus said, John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. ( door, the same, as gate.)
John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. ( he is the, shepherd, we are his sheep….
but we must enter in thru the sheep gate)
Now, I would, like to, ask you all. Who, was the ones, building the sheep gate? The vs. said, the priests were the ones…. that
builded, the sheep gates. Now, I need to show who, these priests were. Well, it started, with the apostles and the day of, Pentecost.
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable
to God by Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the
praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
The people, of God, are the priests, we all are priest, of God. This includes, women, as well. The churches, of today, leaves the
woman out. They say, a woman cannot teach etc.
I had not intended, for this be long, but seems, it is.
How did they, sanctify it? Let me try, to show you.
Romans 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the
Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost ( so this, sanctification, came from, the Holy Ghost)
The apostles were the ones, that set up, the doors.
2 Corinthians 2:12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord
Paul, said that this door was opened to him. There is much more, I could do, but to save time, I will go to the next gate.
The next gate is the fish gate.
Nehemiah 3 3 But the fish gate did the sons of Hassenaah build, who also laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, the
locks thereof, and the bars thereof.
Let’s go to Matthew 4:19
19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.( this fish gate is the apostles and all the ones, that follow the
Mark 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. ( there is 2 scriptures, showing
the fish gate)
The sons of Hassenaah were first, the apostles.
To show more of the sons of God.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters
shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: ( we all that has received, the Holy Ghost,
are included on the fish gate.)
Who was the one who laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof.
To see the answer, let’s go to Matthew 16
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my
Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and
and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. ( so Peter was the one that set up the door, and the one that had the
key to the fish gate. He is the one that could lock that fish gate and the bars thereof. He also was the one who also laid the beams thereof.
Next is the old gate
6 Moreover the old gate repaired Jehoiada the son of Paseah, and Meshullam the son of Besodeiah; they laid the beams thereof,
and set up the doors thereof, and the locks thereof, and the bars thereof. (That old gate being repaired is showing our old man.)
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
They laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, and the locks thereof, and the bars thereof. ( we can see what he was
talking about in 1 Corinthians 3:10-12
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth
thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon ( Paul, said that he laid the foundation, and another buildeth
thereon. The apostles and the prophets are the ones buildeth thereon.
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
I also need , to show more, about the old gate. We need to go back to Nehemiah 2:3 And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should
not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
He said, the place of my fathers’ sepulchres, lieth waste. This is showing the OT of law.
So, what was this fire, that consumed. the old gate? ……… Matthew 3 :11…… I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.
Acts 2:3….. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Hebrews 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. ( the ministers of God, began on the day of Pentecost and the apostles. Now we all are ministers. 2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life
That old gate is no more. We do not go in by that gate anymore. We go into the gate that was repaired. We go into the new gate.
Matthew 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:
We are no more under that old gate of law. Lamentations 2:9 Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the Lord.
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
We are no longer, in bondage, of that law. We are free. We are we are delivered from the law. Praise God. We are made free
from the law of sin and death. We no longer, have to enter in by that old gate, which was a curse. We was made free, by the gate that was rebuilt. We are now in grace, the new gate.
2Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me
There is so much more, I could pen about this, restored gate. But I need to get to the next gate.
13 The valley gate repaired Hanun, and the inhabitants of Zanoah; they built it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the
bars thereof, and a thousand cubits on the wall unto the dung gate
This gate, I really cannot, say much about. It has me stunted.
Psalms 23 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me. ( maybe, Paulette, has something, on the valley gate) That being said, I will move on to the next gate.
Nehemiah 3:14 But the dung gate repaired Malchiah the son of Rechab, the ruler of part of Bethhaccerem; he built it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof
The dung gate is showing, things in our lives, that needs to be cleaned up. It is also showing the false churches. It all began with the Catholic Church The Catholic church send it on down to the whore chuches. She was the mother of these daughters. She was the whore that that sitteth upon many waters. She was the whore that deceived , the many, peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
As I said earlier, these churches of today are teaching, so much dung. Saying that, Jesus is God. The dung about a rapture, when the word of God, does not mention any rapture. They are spreading dung about the evil holidays. God hates all this evil. They celebrate all
kinds of dung. They celebrate, xmess, easter,new year, halloween and so much more. They enter in by the dung gate, which God hates. They make the word of God to be a lie. They have not the truth. Now we move on to the next gate.
Nehemiah 3:15 But the gate of the fountain repaired Shallun the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of part of Mizpah; he built it, and covered it,
and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof, and the wall of the pool of Siloah by the king’s garden, and unto the
stairs that go down from the city of David.
How do we enter into the fountain gate? we have to be washed. Well let me try and show you.
Acts 16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
We are washed by the water by baptism in Jesus name. We are washed, in the pure water. That is the only way to enter in the fountain gate. We are made clean by the washing of water by the word. God, has given me so much on this, as I said before, there is no way, I could do all that he has shown me. I worked on this last night, till I was so tired, and so sleepy, I could not hold my eyes open.When I finally did go to bed, I prayed, Lord, let me go to sleep. But, it seems, he had more plans. I do not even remember, what time I went to sleep. I know it was in the wee hours, of the morning. God, kept showing me more. Now, I am at it again today.
The only way we can enter in the fountain gate is, by repentance, baptism in Jesus name for the remission of sins, and receiving the
Holy Ghost. That is the only way to enter into the fountain gate.
The next gate is water gate.
Nehemiah 3:26 Moreover the Nethinims dwelt in Ophel, unto the place over against the water gate toward the east, and the tower that
lieth out. ( I know you all, have heard of watergate, the one that one of our Presidents were involved in. Not really. I was just kidding)
John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. ( to enter into the water gate
we must thirst and drink the living water, that Jesus has given us. We must be like he woman at the well, if we are going to enter in by
the water gate She desired the water, that the Lord was going to give her.
John 4: 10..Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
John 4:15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
If you are not borne, of the water, and spirit, you cannot enter into the water gate. Entering, that water gate will, cleanse us. We are saved by that water gate. As Noah, and his family were saved, by the water gate.
The next gate is the horse gate
Nehemiah 3:28 From above the horse gate repaired the priests, every one over against his house.
To see, what I see is the horse gate, let’s go to Joel 2.
Joel 2: 2 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the
Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great
people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a
desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a
strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall
not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows
like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of
the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Acts 2:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come
This horse gate is for the endtime ministry. They are the second witness.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness
he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he
treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
I know this is a lots of scripture. to show what the horse gate is, but as God has showed me, this is the only way to prove it.
The next gate is the east gate
Nehemiah 3:29 After them repaired Zadok the son of Immer over against his house. After him repaired also Shemaiah the son of Shechaniah, the keeper of the east gate
This east gate is showing the coming of Jesus
This keeper of this gate is Jesus.
Ezekiel 44:1 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.
2 Then said the Lord unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord, the
God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.
3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same. ( the prince is showing, Jesus. How did he come in?
Zechariah 14: 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of
Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the
mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
Matthew 2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came
and stood over where the young child was. ( He came in the east gate and he will come back the same way)
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of
We all, need to examine, ourselves, to make sure, we come in by te right gate.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus
Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body,
according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
This has been very long, and it was very tiresome, but it was worth it. I regret, not one minute. Most will not read it any how.
