Highly detailed model of the 'Golden gate' the place through which Yeshua (Jesus) Anointed One (Messiah) will enter Jerusalem. Closed by the Muslims in 810, reopened in 1102 by the Crusaders, it was walled up by Ottoman Saladin after regaining Jerusalem in 1187 - Ottoman Sultan Suleiman rebuilt it together with the city walls, but walled it up in 1541, and it stayed that way until today. It is suggested that Suleiman sealed off the Golden Gate to prevent the Messiah's entrance.
1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate that faces toward the east. 2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. 3 It was like the appearance of the vision which I saw--like the vision which I saw when I came to destroy the city. The visions were like the vision which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my face. 4 And the glory of the Lord came into the temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east. (Ezekiel 41:1-4)

Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. 2 And the Lord said to me, “This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut. 3 As for the prince, because he is the prince, he may sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gateway, and go out the same way.” (Ezekiel 44:1-3)
Over 2,600 years ago, the YAHWEH declared the Eastern Gate would be shut and would remain closed until the Messiah arrived to open it. For hundreds of years, the Eastern Gate offered convenient, unfettered access to the Temple courtyard. Yet, for almost five hundred years now, it's been closed. Soon, the Messiah will open it.
