Chapter 2: Gates
As mentioned earlier( in Chapter 1), Gates in the bible were a place of power and a place of exchange. I will go into the bible verses a bit later. Letâ€™s look at some world examples, borders for instance. The border of a country is usually a sensitive place, thatâ€™s why countries always make sure that they do a thorough check of what comes in and what goes out. Immigration is always a very sensitive issue to every person who has gone to a foreign land; one has to do their homework to ensure that once they get to the place of desire they can stay as much as they can. At the same time, countries have laws, procedures and protocol in place to ensure that their countries remain free from unruly elements of society or products that come from foreign nation. So as you may guess already, a border is a gate. Itâ€™s a gate to a country or city. This also goes to things like airports. Thatâ€™s why there is always the special International Terminal and Domestic Terminal. As you guessed it, itâ€™s a gate. It allows you inside that state, country, etc.
So at is in the natural so it is in the spirit, there spiritual gates too. Many people have heard the term â€˜windows of heavenâ€™ as in Malachi 3:10. There are spiritual doors, window as we have just seen and there also gates.
Letâ€™s have a look at some of the biblical references to Gates:
1. Exodus 20:10 (Whole Chapter)
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
2. Deuteronomy 3:5 (Whole Chapter)
All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
