"Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it, I shall give thanks to Thee for Thou hast answered me; and Thou hast become my salvation."
Psalms 118:19-21
What is the Gate of God?
Thou hast become “yÄ•shuw`ah”. Jesus is the gate!

Psa 118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner. (Matthew 21:42 Mark 12:10 Luke 20:17)

The head stone (or cap stone) of the pyramids and ziggurats were places of worship…for entering in.

Jhn 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. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. Jhn 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

Door – “thyra” – a folding door which you rush in.

Rev 3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Mat 25:10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Gen 28:17And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful [is] this place! this [is] none other but the house of God, and this [is] the gate of heaven.

Isa 22:22And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

Rev 3:7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; Rev 3:8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Rev 4:1After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. Rev 4:2And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and [one] sat on the throne.

So there are gates (Hebrew) or Doors (Greek) to enter into the spiritual realm, and you must have a key to enter.

Mat 16:19And 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 whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Where is it mentioned that people entered these gates?
Psalm 118:22 – Jesus (the door) is the HEAD or top stone.
Genesis 11:8 – The tower of Bab-el was not completed. The HEAD stone was not complete.
In Exodus 19 and Exodus 34, Moses entered from the top of Mount Sinai in Arabia.
In Matthew 17 Jesus, Peter, James & John entered from the top of a mountain.
In every instance, there is a SOUND involved. A trumpet, thunder, a voice.
In Leviticus 1:1 God called out to Moses in the tent (or tabernacle). Psalm 29:4-5 says the Lords voice is so powerful it breaks cedars, but the people outside the tent never heard God’s voice!

In first Samuel 15:22 King Saul could not hear what God was saying and it cost him his kingship.

Isa 30:32And [in] every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, [it] shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.

1Sa 10:5After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where [is] the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they shall prophesy: 1Sa 10:6And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.

Jos 6:20So the people shouted when [the priests] blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

1Ki 1:40And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them.

2Ch 5:13It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers [were] as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up [their] voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, [saying], For [he is] good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever: that [then] the house was filled with a cloud, [even] the house of the LORD;

2Ch 5:14So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

Psa 47:5God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

1Th 4:16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Gen 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. (KJV)

John 1:47-51 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me- Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou- thou shalt see greater things than these.

51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. (KJV)


The top of the ladder is in the Heavenlies and the BOTTOM is in your SPIRIT!

You have the RIGHT to fellowship with the Father and the Son outside of time and space - you also are desired by the Father and the Son to PARTICIPATE.

John 7:34 - Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
He did not say where I AM GOING TO BE or where I AM GOING - but where I AM!
In Eden, the garden of God, The dimension of Heaven co-existed with the earth realm. Multiple dimensions occupying the same space! That’s why Adam walked and talked with God. There was no separation. After the fall, the gate was closed. However, in 1st Corinthians 3:9 it says we are God’s husbandry. Meaning the Garden is now in us! Verse 16 says we are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in us. God, that measured the universe in the span of His hand…outside of space and time can fit in us.
In Mark 15:38 the veil was torn. What veil? The veil that was placed between our dimension and the dimension that lies outside of space and time. We can now enter through that veil (Christ is the veil, the gate, the door, and the ladder).
Our physical bodies cannot enter that dimension, but our spirits can!
All throughout the new testament, it refers to this “entering in” as the “mystery”.

In Ephesians 3:3 Paul begins to explain what this “mystery” is. He says it was revealed to him. He is talking about on the Damascus road when that door was opened and he saw into the spiritual realm.
Verse 12 says we have boldness and ACCESS to God through our faith in Christ.

Hebrews 4:16 says we can come boldly to the throne of grace in our time of need.
In verse 18 Paul tells us that he wants us to understand what is the breadth, length, depth, and height…these are all dimensions! He is telling us that we are to understand that we can enter that other dimension. (Notice there are four dimensions mentioned here)

Revelation 10:6 says there is coming a point in the future when there will be no more time. When is this? Verse 7 says “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”

The MYSTERY of God is finished! Meaning when the dimension of Heaven and the Dimension of Earth once again co-exist, there will be no more time.

In Colossians 1:27 Paul explains exactly what this “mystery” is. He says it is “Christ in you, the hope of glory”.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21

Just as there are gates to enter God’s presence, there are also gates that lead to Hell. These gates also require a key to open.
Mat 16:18 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.

Rev 1:18 I [am] he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Ancient Sumerian even talks about these gateways that lead to the spiritual realm.
Their "gods of old" are recorded as arriving here through a watery gateway called the "Abzu", which is where we get the English word "Abyss".

I look forward to the day we all enter the "Thyra" or Rush in that folding door.
Just like Second Samuel 22:10 and Psalm 18:9, where God bowed the fabric of space and time and that door is opened between our two dimensions!
