Portal


WHAT IS THE ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD "PORTAL."

a doorway, gate, or other entrance, especially a large and imposing one.

Origin late Middle English: from Old French, from medieval Latin portale, neuter (used as a noun) of portalis ‘like a gate’, from Latin porta ‘door, gate’.

As we can see, the word "portal" means a door or a gate, which is not taking from, or adding to scripture. Rev 3:20 tells us :-


SEE, I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK. IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICE AND OPENS THE DOOR, I SHALL COME IN TO HIM AND DINE WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME.


There is a doorway into our hearts which only Yahusha can access. What does it mean when Yahusha says,He will come into us and dine with us. Looking at the word "dine," in Hebrew, opens this meaning.

Result of search for "dine": 398 'akal aw-kal' a primitive root; to eat (literally or figuratively):--X at all, burn up, consume, devour(-er, up), dine, eat(-er, up), feed (with), food, X freely, X in...wise(-deed, plenty), (lay) meat, X quite.


Putting verse 19 with the result of the word dine opens up the verse so much more. Rev 3:19 AS MANY AS I LOVE, I FLOG AND DISCIPLINE. SO BE ARDENT AND REPENT !!


Yahusha has promised to come into us and burn up, consume, and devour, all the uncleanness of this world within us, and He will teach us to do wise deeds. The Turah teaches us that men and women will be burnt up from the inside out, and that we will see this happening. Better to open the "door" and invite Yahusha in to do it His way, than to come under judgement when He returns.
