New Jerusalem Series, #3: Gates of Pearl
The City Gates Will Be Open
Historically nations have always practiced wise security for their people. Walls and gates; but in the New Jerusalem the gates will be open.
For security purposes people usually lock the doors to their homes; and cities with walls and gates normally shut them at night. However, since there will be no night in the New Jerusalem and all evil will have been eradicated, these gates will always stay open.
"And the gates of it shall not be shut at all
by day: for there shall be no night there."
The unredeemed are a long way outside the city’s walls and never come into the holy city:
"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:14-15
