The East Gate shall be shut forever!
Ezekiel 44:1-3 -
1 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.
2 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.
3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.
WOW! What a scripture to receive today, a day after we celebrate Resurrection Day.
In the Bible, east and west are symbolic to left and right respectively. They in-turn symbolize unrighteousness and righteousness respectively. This makes earth being in the east and Heaven (the throne of God) being in the west.
The path of the sun rising in the east and traveling to the west symbolizes the coming of God as man and making man righteous; and thus Resurrection Day is to do with the west more than to do with the east, for it is an assurance of victory. So ideally Resurrection Day should be called Wester and not Easter if the name is to do with the sun, and the day Abraham was given the promise of the Seed could be called Easter. For the duration of two thousand years from the promise to Jesus coming and two and half thousand from Jesus coming to the promise getting fulfilled when man will enter Heaven makes the four and a half thousand years of Israel ( which is means 'princes of God' - 'Isra' means prince and 'El' stands for God).
In today's message when we become sons of God (Light) we are ordained as God's princes and the scripture says that since the Lord God of Israel had passed through the east gate and done the job therefore it shall be shut and no more will his princes enter through this gate.
The Resurrection of Jesus and then His second coming (as man) on the Judgment Day with man entering Heaven will close the east gate forever and no more will the God's princes ever enter via it. No more will unrighteousness be found in those who enter Heaven for they will be perfected in the Begotten Son.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are an awesome God. You being the Creator humbled yourself and became one of your own creations, limiting yourself in what was never limited unto You. Lord, even though You were limited, yet You finish the job and redeem your people and will undo the corruption in us and will make us incorruptible like You, taking us from east to west. Lord, we pray today as You reconfirm this promise to us our heart be strengthened and we fight to the finish with the victory already written...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

7 And Jehovah appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land [symbolizes the Promised Land - Heaven]: and there builded he an altar unto Jehovah, who appeared unto him.
Daniel 12:5-9 (with 12:7 being the key scripture)
5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on the brink of the river on this side, and the other on the brink of the river on that side.
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when they have made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel; for the words are shut up and sealed till the time of the end.
31 and the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel, three gates northward: the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, one; the gate of Levi, one.
32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred reeds [units of measurement], and three gates: even the gate of Joseph, one; the gate of Benjamin, one; the gate of Dan, one.
33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred reeds by measure, and three gates: the gate of Simeon, one; the gate of Issachar, one; the gate of Zebulun, one.
34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred reeds, with their three gates: the gate of Gad, one; the gate of Asher, one; the gate of Naphtali, one.
