On November 7, 2010, the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) told me  that it was urgent for me to go
Jerusalem and worship HIM before the Eastern Gate. I did not question ELOHIM, LOVER OF MY SOUL!
I must be obedient to the GOD of Isra'el. Therefore, I  reserved my hotel room and airline flight
for this mission. I experiened holy and natural fear, but GOD's will be done!

After I had started reading about the Jerusalem Eastern Gate prophecies, I developed holy fear.

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 (Jesus) passed through this gate multiple times while he was in Jerusalem.
Jewish religious tradition teaches that the coming Messiah will enter Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate. 
Muslims sealed the gate during the rule of Suleiman to prevent the Messiah's return.
Nearly 2,000 years ago, Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus the Christ) stood on this hillside overlooking Jerusalem,
making prophesies that would change the world.

According to Jewish tradition, the Messiah will come through theEastern Gate or Mercy Gate
of  Old  Jerusalem and bring about the resurrection of the dead in the cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
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 the 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 acharit-hayamim (end of 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 Messiah will arrive on the Mount of Olives,
with all His saints, and walk down  and  through the Eastern Gate and into the Temple area. 
Praise be the name of the LORD! Baruch haba B'shem ADONAI!

 Ezekiel 44:1-3Then 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 1:10-12 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 Ruach HaKodesh told me three times that it was urgent for me to
go to Jerusalem & worship Him before the Eastern Gate. I arrived in Old Jerusalem
on 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 a case of bronchitis.
I could have taken a cab, but I wanted to walk the streets of Jerusalem.
The desk clerk at my hotel gave me a map & said it would take about 30 minutes.

Her directions were not very clear & I got lost. The desk clerk & everyone I asked for
directions asked me, "Why do you want to see the
Eastern Gate? It is closed!"

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 &
started to wonder if the Ruach HaKoesh had spoken to me or if it was my imagination. In my
spirit, I knew that the  Spirit of the living GOD had spoken to me,
so I was determined to get to the Eastern Gate!

Finally, I saw many cabs lined up at a curb. I asked a driver,
if he could take me to the Eastern Gate.
He said, "Why do you want to see the Eastern Gate? it is closed!"
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 gravesite.
I went along with him and took some photographs. When we got back in the cab, I said,
"I really need to get right in front of the Eastern Gate because GOD told me to!"

The cab driver said that he would try, but a policeman was blocking the street.
I knew in my heart that GOD would let us pass through. GOD is so good!
The policeman moved out of our way. My next obstacle was two Muslim policemen,
strapped with riffles, before the entrance of the street that gave access to the Eastern Gate.

WHAT A MIGHTY GOD I SERVE! My cab driver was Muslim & was able to speak to these Muslim 
policemen in Arabic. They told the cab driver to park & I could walk to the Eastern Gate.
HalleluYAH, HalleluYAH, Glory to GOD, I made it!

Immediately, I felt great holy awe & fear because GOD had brought me to this point. Why
I don't know. But when you fall, completely, in love with ELOHIM, you will walk on fire
to please him!

I sat before the Eastern Gate & started praying.
Next, I started singing in the Spirit the same songs &
melodies I sing in the the Holy One of Isra'el at home. It was a holy & awesome experience.
I felt the presence of GOD all over that place!

Astonishingly, a Muslim graveyard worker rushed up to me in wonder &
asked if  me if I wanted him to take my picture closer to the Eastern Gate.
I was still filled with Holy Spirit & could not speak. I nodded, "Yes". 
This kind elderly man allowed me to climbe over Muslim gravesites so that I
could get closer to the Eastern Gate.

When I climbed down the gravesites, I had recomposed & said, "God bless you."
I was shocked when the Muslim graveyard worker kissed both sides of my cheeks
& said, "GOD bless you." I walked out of there wondering what just happened.
 Only the Holy One of Isra'el could soften the heart of a Muslim to allow me, a Messianic Jew to climb over Muslim gravesites to get closer to the Eastern Gate!!
Only the Holy One of Isra'el is the true and living GOD! All other gods are Ba'al! I am sure the Holy One of Isra'el gave that Muslim something to think about that day! GLORY! HALLELUYAH!   


After all of these events, I knew GOD had planned it this way.
I did not know what would take place, but GOD did.
GOD has not revealed to me His purpose for sending me on this
journey! Only the Holy One of Israel knows.
Maybe in time, GOD will reveal it to me.

It was exhilarating  to press on to be obedient to HOLY, DIVINE AND MAJESTIC ELOHIM!
I always said I would die for ELOHIM. ELOHIM showed me that day that I would &
the depth of my love for HIM!

All Honor, Glory, Power and Praise the love of my life, ELOHIM, ADONAI!
I am more in love with GOD than ever before!!!
