Open Gates

 

I shall be the temple
of New Jerusalem

and it’s only
source of light

the gates open
day after day

for there will be
no night.

Jesus establishes the final temple.

“But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. It’s gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. “. Revelation 21:22,23,25,26 NKJV

Gates

“And she had a great and high wall with twelve gates and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.”  Revelation 21:12 NKJV

The children of Israel have always been a crucial part of God’s whole plan.

Thank You, Lord, for the role Israel plays in Your redemption story.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

And the gates
of New Jerusalem

named after
the twelve tribes

stand open
now forever

as nations bring
their glory inside.

A Rejoicing Tithe

” . . .you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.” Deuteronomy 14:26
“”At the end of every third year you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates.” Deuteronomy 14:28
“And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance among you and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, they come and eat and be satisfied, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.” Deuteronomy 14:29

I received a different look at the tithe in this chapter, seeing more of God’s heart for us in it, to rejoice and bless others.

Lord, thank You for how You work in our work or lack of it, in our finances or need, as we give or as we receive help from others. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Satisfied

You bless us
as we bless others
storing up
in order to give
knowing You provide
the tithe and increase
and the every breath
we need to live.
