On Novemver 7, 2010, the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) told me that it is urgent for me to go Jerusalem alone and worship him before the Eastern Gate. I did not question ELOHIM.
I must be obedient to the G-d of Israel. Therefore, I reserved a hotel room in Old Jerusalem and purchased an airline ticket for this divine mission. I experienced great holy fear and natural fear, but G-d's will be done!
After I had started reading about the Jerusalem Eastern Gate, I developed holy fear about its significance. I knew that the Holy One of Isra'el would be with me and He was.
Facing the Mount of Olives on the eastern side of the Old City of Jerusalem is the Golden Gate or Eastern Gate.
The Bible states that YESHUA passed through this gate multiple times while He was in Jerusalem. Jewish religious tradition teaches that the coming Mashiach (Messiah) will enter Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate. Muslims sealed the gate during the rule of Suleiman to prevent the coming of the Messiah.
Nearly 2,000 years ago, YESHUA stood on this hillside overlooking Jerusalem, making prophesies that would change the world.
According to Jewish tradition, the Mashiach will come through the Golden Gate or (Gate of Mercy) of the Old City Jerusalem and bring about the resurrection of the dead in the cemetery on the Mount. The Mount of Olives is a mountainside of stones. It is believed that YESHUA ascended up into Heaven from the Mount of Olives, which overlooks the Eastern Gate to the west. From that stony mountain top, YESHUA ascended as the chief cornerstone for the up-building of Mount Zion. It is to the Mount of Olives that YESHUA will return in the last days.
The Eastern gate is, presently, considered by the Arabs to be their exclusive property. It is sealed and blocked off. However, one day, the Mashiach will arrive on the Mount of Olives in great glory and power. YESHUA will walk down and through the Eastern Gate and into the Temple area. Praise be the name of ADONAI! Baruch haba B'shem ADONAI!
(Ezekiel 44:1-3) Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. 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.
It is for the prince; the prince!
(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.
(Acts 1:10-1) And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold,two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet,
(Matthew 24:35:42) Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
Again, on 11/07/2010, the Holy One of Isra'el told me three times that it was urgent for me to go to Jerusalem alone to worship him before the Eastern Gate. I arrived in Old Jerusalemon 12/5/2010. Jerusalem had not received rain in the last 6- 8 months. This day the heavens poured down rain!
I started my journey, walking in the rain of Old Jerusalem with acute bronchitis. I could have taken a cab, but I wanted to walk the streets of Old Jerusalem. The desk clerk at my hotel gave me a map and said it would take about 30 minutes. Her directions were not very clear and I got lost. The desk clerk and everyone I asked for directions asked me, "Why do you want to see the Eastern Gate? It is SHUT!"
I walked in the rain for 4 -5 hours trying to follow passersby directions on how to get to the Eastern Gate. Everyone gave me different directions. I was getting weary and started to wonder if G-D had spoken to me or if it was my imagination. In my spirit I knew it was G-D so I was determined to get to the Eastern Gate!
Finally, I saw many cabs lined up on a curb. I asked a driver if he could take me to the Eastern Gate.
He asked, "Why do you want to see the Eastern Gate? It is SHUT!" I said, "Please just take me there." The cab driver told me that the closest he could get me was the Mount of Olives because the Eastern Gate was on a Muslim grave site. I went along with him and took some photos. When we got back in the cab, I said, "I really need to get right in front of the Eastern Gate because G-D told me to!"
The cab driver said that he would try, but a policeman was blocking the street. I knew in my heart that G-D would let us pass through. G-D is so good! The policeman moved out of our way. My next obstacle was two Muslim guards, strapped with riffles before the entrance of the street that gave access to the Eastern Gate.
WHAT A MIGHTY G-D I SERVE! My cab driver was Muslim and was able to speak in Arabic with these guards. They told the cab driver to park and that I could walk to the Eastern Gate. HalleluYAH, HalleluYAH, Glory to ADONAI Tzva'ot, I made it! Immediately, I felt great holy awe & fear because G-D had brought me to this point. At the time I did not know why my beloved ELOHIM sent me on this journey. I did not care. I was honored that he asked me and had to be obedient.
I sat before the Eastern Gate & started praying. Next, the anointing of the Ruach HaKodesh fell upon me
and I started worshiping the Holy One of Isra'el in song. It was a holy & awesome experience. I felt the presence of ADONAI all over that place! Amazingly, an elderly Muslim graveyard worker rushed up to me in wonder and asked if I wanted him to take my picture closer to the Eastern Gate. The Spirit of the Living G-d was resting greatly upon me and I could not speak. I nodded, "yes". The kind elderly man motioned me to climb over Muslim grave sites so that I could get closer to the Eastern Gate. He took my photograph after I had climbed up to the top of the grave sites. After I had walked down the grave sites, I was able to speak and said to the Muslim graveyard worker, "G-d bless you." I was shocked when he kissed both sides of my cheeks & said, "God bless you." I walked out of there wondering what just happened.
After all of these events I knew G-D had planned it this way. I did not know what would take place, but G-D did.
Four months after my return to the United States, ELOHIM revealed to me the reason why He sent me to the Eastern Gate. G-D has not given me permission to discuss this. However, I will tell you that ELOHIM told me that He beckoned many to come, but I was the only one that showed up. I started to weep out of great love and reverence for my G-D. When you fall, completely, in love with ELOHIM, you will walk on fire to please Him! GLORY! HALLELUYAH!
It was exhilarating to press on to be obedient to ELOHIM! I always said that I would die for ELOHIM. ELOHIM showed me that day that I really would & the depth of my love for HIM! I am, also, certain that ELOHIM gave the graveyard worker something to think about. Only the Holy One of Isra'el can touch the heart of a Muslim for him to motion me to climb over Muslim grave sites to get closer to the Eastern Gate. The Holy One of Isra'el is the only true living G-d! All other gods are Ba'al! HalleluYAH!
All honor, glory, and praise to the love of my life, ELOHIM, ADONAI! I am in love with G-d now more than ever!
