12 Gates

Reactions: 


[via FoxyTunes / Jennifer Avalon - 12 Gates to the City
Oh, what a beautiful city.
Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Three gates in the east,
Three gates in the west,
Three gates in the north
Three gates in the south
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Who are those children dressed in red?
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
Must be the children that Moses led
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

My Jesus done just what He said
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
He healed the sick and He raised the dead.
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
God has made it easy for us to reach Him through His Son Jesus, the symbolism behind this song and the verses in the bible convey this as well as the fact that all are invited from the four corners of the world to become His children...
Ezekiel 48:31-34 (King James Version)
31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.
32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.
33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun.
34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.

Revelation 21:11-13 (King James Version)
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
This evening we went to Moondancers church to attend the confirmation service, once again God confimed to me that being saved is also being called to serve in the spreading of His Gospel, we just have to listen to the Spitit for guidance and we will be shown how.
"Hold a book in your hand and you're a pilgrim at the gates of a new city."
