Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan
Verse 2. And the whole power of the Internal shall be communicated to the External; and the External shall be prepared, by the acknowledgement of the Lord, and influx from Him through the heavens, for such worship; while the conjunction of truth with good shall be effected, and thus conjunction with the Lord.
Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff
In a general sense, doors in the Bible represent the initial desires for good and concepts of truth that introduce people to new levels of love and understanding and even to the Lord himself.
There are many specifics based on context, though. Since a “house” represents a person’s desires, affections and passions, the door serves to introduce true ideas that can put those desires into action. In broader cases the door is leading to heaven itself.
And in some cases the meaning is taken to a very specific level. For instance, homes in Biblical times often had inner doors and outer doors for protection. When Lot tried to convince the men of Sodom not to molest the angels visiting him in Gen. 19, he actually went outside the inner door but stayed inside the outer door. The outer door represents a desire for good that is resistant to the falsity represented by the men of Sodom; the inner represents true ideas springing from that desire for good. Someone nurturing a desire for good could be admitted through the first door, but would have to learn the truth about how to express that desire before being admitted through the second.
References to doorposts and lintels also make a distinction between introductory goods and introductory truths.
