Revelation 22:15-21 King James Version (KJV)
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. z-And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
John attests by Jesus the Messiah that those left outside the City Gates are dogs, sorcerers, whoremongers, murders, idolaters, and whoever else loves and creates lies. Let’s get clear on those outside the Kingdom, the City Gates: a dog
The Google definition asserts the dog in the informal as a person regarded as unpleasant, contemptible, or wicked; and is used as a term of abuse. Scripturally, a dog referred to a male prostitute. The phrase women often say when they have been done wrong by a boyfriend/male-friend or husband is, “All men are dogs!”
In the repetition or copy of the law (Deuteronomy), in the twenty-third chapter, it is written that the children of Israel should not bring the wages of a whore or whorehouse nor the price of a dog into the house of the Sovereign Most-High POWER (23:18).
These were considered abominations. In separate translations and Strong’s transliterations, the dog is Keleb, which refers to the animal dog, or to someone contempt, to pagan sacrifice, or a male cult prostitute.*
A sorcerer in the noun is a person who claims or is believed to have magic powers; a wizard or warlock. These along with dogs will not enter the City. Among them is the whoremonger. A “monger” is a dealer, and a whore is one who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse for money; a prostitute.
Thus, a whoremonger would be the dealer of whores. In some areas, this is the “pimp” for a male, a “madam” for a female. Also outside the city are murders (thou shall not kill), idolaters (thou shall not worship graven images), and those who love and create lies (thou shall not bear false witness).
For Without are Dogs, and Sorcerers: Seven Verses
Jesus the Messiah Himself has sent His angel to testify all these things to the churches. This same Jesus, who is the root and the offspring of David, is also the bright and morning star. The Spirit and the bride both say “Come!” They invite anyone who is thirsty to come drink freely the water of life.
The angel testifies to every man who hears the words of the prophecy of this book (Revelation (the Law, Psalms, Prophets, and Gospels)) and adds or takes away; it will be required of. If they add, God will add the plagues written in this book to such a man.
If they take away, God will take away that man’s part from the book of life, the holy city, and from the things written. Therefore, listen to the testifier, He will surely come quickly, even so, come on LORD Jesus. Grace be with you from our LORD Jesus the Messiah. Amen! Seven Verses.
