I once heard an incredible sermon of a prophecy for Indonesia. Almost everything that the preacher said was nothing really new to me. I have heard of it before. But what I had not known was all the historical and biblical facts that would proof the truth in the prophecy about Indonesia that I had heard from different people.
The preacher talked about the 12 gates of Jerusalem that was built during and after the time of Nehemiah. The 12 gates were originally named after the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 sons of Jacob. But through hundreds of years, the 12 gates have also been known with different names as shown in the wheels of the 12 gates below.
“These are the city exits; they are to be named after the tribes of Israel, three gates on each of the four sides…
on the north: Reuben, Yehudah and Levi
on the east: Yoseph, Benjamin and Dan
on the south: Simon, Issachar and Zebullun
on the west: Gad, Asher and Naftali…” Ezekiel 48:30-34
“It had a great, high wall with 12 gates; at the gates were twelve angels; and inscribed on the gates were the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates to the east, three gates to the north, three gates on to the south and three gates to the west.” Revelation 21:12-13)
The names of the gates have changed over hundreds of years:
