Day 3 The Old Gate/Corner Gate (Ten Days at Ten Gates)Prayer Challenge . Ten Days of Prayer Challenge
Read day 3 in Ten Days at 10 Gates
Today, we stand at the Old Gate, sometimes called the Corner Gate. Here is a quote from a neat article I found.
“The Old Gate (v. 6) was situated in the northwest corner and is identified with the Corner Gate of 2 Kings 14:13 and Jeremiah 31:38. Opinions differ concerning the use of the term Old Gate, but some believe this gate was so named, because it was the main entrance into the old city of Salem (Jerusalem) on the north side.
The Old Gate reminds us of the old nature of Christians. It contrasts God’s ways and will with our old lifestyle before we began to walk with Him (Jer. 6:16). We are to put off the tenets of the old nature and walk in the newness of Christ’s life (Col. 3:5–17), so that sin has no dominion over our daily lives (Rom. 6:6–14).” -source
I love the references in Ten Days at Ten Gates to Yeshua our chief cornerstone and to the ancient path. As I pondered these two images I looked at some passages. One that really spoke to me was Isaiah 28. Another was Jeremiah 6. Wow, these passages seem so fitting as we celebrate Yom Teruah.
I pray that I will always remember that Yeshua is indeed the chief cornerstone, and that He has shown us the ancient pathway. Abba, as I ponder these verses, make it my hearts desire to always seek after truth and to have ears to hear it. Lord, make me your remnant and protect me from lies, deceit, false teaching, and complacency. Motivate me to seek truth and righteousness at all cost. Give me wisdom to learn from those who are older and wiser than me. Help me be still and listen to gain understanding.
May Your Will Be Done, and May Your Kingdom Come.

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
