Ezekiel 44:2, “The Lord said to me, ‘This gate shall remain shut; it shall not be opened, and no one shall enter by it…'” ESV
In most religions the east entrance is the preferred entrance. Hindus will seal north or south doors so the only entrance is east.
In other religions people are trying to reach god or become a god. Religion can be defined as a search for God. Christianity is when God finds us.
I am grateful that God did the work for us. He comes to us. He made a way for us through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
If we ask, he will come in.
