I personally believe the gates speak of security. (See John 10 and focus on Jesus as the door.) Our security to enter through the gates of heaven is Jesus Christ. He is our Security.
Meyer wrote about two Germans who wanted to climb the
They had gone only a little way up the side when the last man lost his footing. He was held up temporarily by the other four, because each had a toehold in the niches they had cut in the ice. But then the next man slipped, and he pulled down the two above him. The only one to stand firm was the first guide, who had driven a spike deep into the ice. Because he held his ground, all the men beneath him regained their footing.
F.B. Meyer concluded his story by drawing a spiritual application. He said, "I am like one of those men who slipped, but thank God, I am bound in a living partnership to Christ. And because He stands, I will never perish."We have entrance to the gates of heaven because Jesus still lives! Amen and amen!
