Northern and southern gateways

A bronze-like man showed Ezekiel a temple of God, including the northern and southern gateways,

“On the outer court was also a gateway facing north, and he measured its length and its width…After that he brought me toward the south, and there a gateway was facing south; and he measured its gateposts and archways according to these same measurements…” (Ezekiel 40:20–27).

If the temple had been intended for a few people, one gate would have been sufficient, but this temple had an eastern gate, along with the northern and southern gates, allowing plenty of entrances into God’s temple.

God does not desire to exclude anyone, for truly He has always loved the world and that is why He gave His only begotten Son, that no one would be excluded, but that all may enter His temple and not perish, if they believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
