Who are going to enter through these gates?
JESUS, the Savior, Lord and King expressed on the Last Day, the Day of Judgment here on earth, says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, ‘I [NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY]’” (Matthew 7:21-23).
“And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the [RIGHTEOUS] shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 13:42-43).
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8-9).
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:12-17).
