THE AEDICULE SURROUNDING JESUS' GRAVE IN THE
CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHER IN JERUSALEM

THE HOLY FIRE CAME FROM THE HOLY PLACE, THE GRAVE OF JESUS,
ON THE EVE OF EASTER THIS YEAR, THUS VALIDATING THE SITE

THE REAL REASON FOR THE PAPAL VISIT TO JERUSALEM MAY 25 IN
SPITE OF ISRAEL'S LABOR STRIKE OF DIPLOMATIC PERSONNEL

By Marilyn Agee

"Francis will be joined in Jerusalem by the current ecumenical patriarch, Bartholomew. They will celebrate Mass together at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where the faithful believe Jesus was crucified and buried, Francis said."
(http://www.cbsnews.com/news/pope-francis-announces-may-trip-to-holy-land/)

Forty days after the first blood moon of the tetrad, Sunday, May 25, the Pope will sign a joint declaration on ecumenism with Eastern Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew, at the HOLY PLACE, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.(www.catholicnewsagency.com)

There will also be an Ecumenical Meeting of the Patriarch Bartholomew and representatives of other Christian churches. (http://www.news.va/en/news/pope-announces-papal-visit-to-holy-land)

The timing of the ecumenical meeting is intended to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI's visit with Patriarch Athenagoras I in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher.

"Their meeting in 1964 in Jerusalem led to the rescinding of the excommunications of 1054 that caused the Great Schism between the churches of the East and West." (http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2014/01/pope-francis-visit-holy-land-20141512274579933.html

"That encounter was the beginning of ecumenical dialogue between the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, and led to a joint declaration issued in 1965 which declared the two leaders' desire "to overcome their differences in order to be again 'one' as the Lord Jesus asked of his Father for them", and which lifted the mutual excommunications of their predecessors issued in 1054, which profoundly contributed to the schism between Eastern Orthodoxy and Catholicism."

The Pope will be visiting with Patriarch Bartholomew at the Patriarch's request, which was made at the Pope's inaugural Mass 3-19-13. That was the first time the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople had attended an event like that since 1054.

Catholic Online, by Deacon Keith Fournier 3/22/2013 "Pope Francis, has made it clear. He will continue the work toward the day when the two lungs of the Church, East and West, breathe together again...

"On March 20, 2013 Pope Francis addressed the ecumenical guests who had attended his installation. He began with warm words to the Orthodox brethren, specifically addressing Patriarch Bartholomew, 'First of all, heartfelt thanks for what my Brother Andrew told us. Thank you so much! Thank you so much!' The two had met in a private meeting. The Patriarch of Constantinople expressed his hope that the two could meet in Jerusalem later this year and issued an invitation of historic significance." (http://www.catholic.org/news/international/europe/story.php?id=50211)

Patriarch Bartholomew has continued the RECONCILIATION DIALOGUE with the Roman Catholic Church initiated by his predecessors. He has also initiated dialogue with other faiths, including Muslims.

Orthodox bishops met in March to exchange views on guidelines and a "time frame for the Preparatory Commission of the Pan-Orthodox Synod" to be held in 2016. (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/papal-visit-to-holy-land-to-focus-on-ecumenism-with-orthodox/)

MY THOUGHTS

Thursday, May 29, our daughter's birthday, is Ascension Day in both eastern and western churches. Number 29 means departure. We are the Bride of Christ. There was a Wedding Ring Solar Eclipse April 29/Nisan 29. Things are adding up. How will Dan 9:27 and Mt 24:15 tie in?

Acts 1:9-11 says, "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (i.e., probably Moses and Elijah) stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

MOSES AND ELIJAH (ELIAS) DESCEND AS WE ASCEND

Zec 4:11-14 says, "What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."

"Mat 17:1-4 says, "And after six days (i.e., after 6000 years) Jesus taketh Peter, James, and JOHN his brother, and bringeth them up (i.e., as in the Rapture) into an high mountain (i.e., the third Heaven, II Cor 12:2-4) apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him."

Rev 11:1-4 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise (i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God (i.e., we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit), and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (i.e., the last half of the Tribulation. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."

Of the First-Trump Rapture, Rev 4:1-4 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was (lit., became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one (Jesus) sat on the throne. 3 And he (Jesus, the first and the last) that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine (first stone in the breastplate): and there was a rainbow (i.e., Saturn's rings) round about the throne (on Saturn), in sight like unto an emerald (Judah's stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is also the Lion of the Tribe of Judah). 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders (i.e., 12 patriarchs and 12 apostles, including John) sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

HEAVY RAIN IN ISRAEL

"UNSEASONABLE storm wreaks havoc in south; flash floods reported from Eilat to Dead Sea....

"Wednesday night and Thursday morning saw heavy rains and thunderstorms across the country, a rare occurrence so late....

"By Thursday morning the city of Arad reported 44 millimeters of rain had fallen from the storm, 40 times the average for this time of year".(emphasis mine)

UNUSUAL SPIKE IN SEISMIC ACTIVITY

"In a typical month, the planet is shaken by an average of one or two medium-to-large earthquakes. This past month was not typical. Things were running on track up until the end of March, and THEN THE GROUND WENT TOTALLY BONKERS.

"There was an incredible 13 quakes of magnitudes 6.5 or higher in April. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which issued bulletins for each one, says that is "easily a record for this institution." Five of these temblors were powerful enough that the center also put out tsunami warnings. They include the massive quakes in northern Chile at the beginning of the month, as well as three more that shook the Solomon Islands in the following weeks."

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: DESECRATING THE HOLY OF HOLIES

It has been brought to our attention that the Muslim Waqf has built a massive scaffolding in the place of the Holy of Holies (i.e., HE IS TALKING ABOUT INSIDE THE DOME OF THE ROCK), for what is described on Arabic language websites as "repair work" and "maintenance." The Holy of Holies is the holiest place on earth. It is there that the foundation stone of all creation sits. It was there that the Ark of the Covenant rested. It is through the Holy of Holies that all the prayer in the world ascends to heaven. And it is here, in the Holy of Holies that there exists absolutely no supervision over what the Muslims decide to do. Any other spot in Israel would require the permission and supervision of the Antiquities Authority before a single spade of dirt could be removed. But here in the Holy of Holies the Waqf can do as it pleases, and answer to no one.

Photo shows scaffolding in the place of the Holy of Holies, on top of the foundation stone.

MY REPLY

I don't think the inside the Dome of the Rock was the place of the Holy of Holies. The width of the rock is wider than the width of the Holy of Holies. See "THE TEMPLE AND THE FACE ON THE WALL" by Marilyn Agee: http://prophecycorner.theforeverfamily.com/temple.html

"THE SIZE OF THE ROCK (17.7 M X 13.5 M) UNDER THE DOME OF THE ROCK WOULD NOT FIT IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES (10 M X 10 M), SO THE TEMPLE WAS NOT BUILT OVER THE ROCK.

"WILSON'S ARCH" AND THE AQUEDUCT IT BROUGHT IN HELP LOCATE THE TEMPLE SOUTH OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK"
When the Temple was standing, the rock was just north of the wall that separated the Temple Court from Fort Antonia, and it was much higher then.

In Wars V. V. 8, Josephus, a Pharisee priest, said, "Now, as to the tower of Antonia, it was situated at the corner of two cloisters of the court of the temple; of that on the west and that on the north; it was erected upon A ROCK OF FIFTY CUBITS IN HEIGHT, AND WAS ON A GREAT PRECIPICE; it was the work of king Herod, wherein he demonstrated his natural magnanimity. In the first place, THE ROCK ITSELF WAS COVERED OVER WITH SMOOTH PIECES OF STONE, from its foundation, both for ornament, and that any one who would either try to get up, or to go down it, might not be able to hold his feet upon it. Next to this, and before you come to the edifice of the tower itself, there was a wall three cubits high; but within that wall all the space of the tower of Antonia itself was built upon, to the height of forty cubits."

MY REPLY

Keep in mind that "he apostasia" can mean departure. It was translated that way in 8 Bibles older than the KJV.

Also, 2 Thess 2:3 (HNV) says, "Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction".

ONE KEY

"Integrative Theology"
Gordon R. Lewis, ?Bruce A. Demarest – 2010
"A literal departure is indicated by the function of the definite article.... 181"

"Great Falling Away after the Departure of the Church
Johan Malan, University of the North, South Africa]

http://www.bibleguidance.co.za/Engarticles/Departure.htm

"Abstract: The revelation of the Antichrist (the man of sin) can only occur after the departure of the true church of Christ.

"The departure (Gr. apostasia) of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 will precede the revelation of the Antichrist. The rendering of apostasia as "rebellion", "apostasy" or "falling away" in most English Bibles is unfortunate since these are secondary, or derived, meanings of the word. Its primary meaning is "departure" which, in this verse, refers to the rapture of the church....

"The following are examples of the rendering of aphistemi in the King James Version:

"...[she] departed not from the temple" (Lk. 2:37); "...he departed from Him for a season" (Lk. 4:13); "...and in time of temptation fall away" (Lk. 8:13); "Depart from Me" (Lk. 13:37); "...the angel departed from him" (Acts 12:10); "...who departed from them" (Acts 15:38); "...he departed from them" (Acts 19:9); ...they departed from him" (Acts 22:19); "...that it might depart from me" (2 Cor. 12:8); "...depart from the faith" (1 Tim. 4:1); "...from such withdraw thyself" (1 Tim. 6:5); "...depart from iniquity" (2 Tim. 2:19); "...departing from the living God" (Heb. 3:12).

"In view of these examples it is clear that the basic meaning of the word apostasia and its verb form of aphistemi is to depart. For this reason, the word apostasia in 2 Thes. 2:3 was translated as departing first in the following seven English Bibles before the King James Version: Wycliffe Bible (1384), Tyndale Bible (1526), Coverdale Bible (1535), Cranmer Bible (1539), Breeches Bible (1576), Beza Bible (1583), and the Geneva Bible (1608).

"The Vulgate uses the Latin word discessio, meaning departure. In a footnote to 2 Thes. 2:3 the Amplified Bible makes the following remark: "A possible rendering of apostasia is departure [of the church]." In its full meaning, this verse reads:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [the day of the Lord] shall not come, except there come a departing [of the church] first, and that man of sin [the Antichrist] be revealed, the son of perdition…"

"World English Bible "Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the departure comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction".

"2 Thess 2:3 A possible rendering of the Greek apostasia is "departure [of the church]."

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: Question about Fig Leaves Adam used in Garden?

I've spoken to you years ago and was wondering if you could help me? You have a ton of biblical knowledge IN MY OPINION about Seasons etc... in the Bible. The fig tree leaves Adam used to cover his private parts in the garden after the fall happened, What Season would that have been over in the middle east? What agricultural season so to speak? Any advice you might have, I would love to hear from you. I'm still a big fan of yours and your work!!!

MY REPLY

It is so good to hear from you.

Fig trees drop their leaves in late fall, and are bare until spring, when new growth begins.

I think Adam was created in 4043 BC on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets. The first man, Adam, and the first and only man/God, Jesus, were both "born" on the Feast of Trumpets.

The figs would have leaves at that time. Agape

DATE OF BIRTH AND DEATH OF JESUS

The Date of Birth and Death of Jesus

Based on inferences from Gospel accounts, Jesus was executed by crucifixion on a Friday, and on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan under the administration of Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate held his position from 26-36 and the only years in which Nisan 14 fell on a Friday are 27, 33, and 36 and possibly in 30 depending on when the new moon would have been visible in Jerusalem. Scholars have defended all of the dates.

This understanding of the Gospels is difficult to reconcile with the tradition that holds the Last Supper took place on the first night of Passover which is defined in the Torah to be the 14th of Nisan. Furthermore, at that time, the date of Passover was set by the court in Jerusalem based upon testimony of witnesses. It was not until after 500 that the calendar was changed to be based upon calculation. Therefore, it is not possible to state on which day of the week the 14 of Nisan occurred for any year before 500 without historical documents that attest to a particular day of the week.

Brief timeline of Jesus. Important years from empirical sources.
c. 6 BC - Suggested birth (Earliest)
c. 4 BC - Herod's death
c. AD 6 - Suggested birth (Latest). Quirinius census
c. AD 26 - Pilate appointed Judea governor
c. AD 27 - Suggested death (Earliest).
c. AD 36 - Suggested death (Latest)

MY REPLY

After much study, I think Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets in 5 BC, before Herod died in 4 BC. I can't see any way Jesus could have been born after Herod died.

I think the Crucifixion was on the Preparation of the Passover, Thursday, Nisan 13, 3790 (Hebrew), April 6, 30 AD (Julian).

SIGNS IN THE SKY

THREE HEAVENS

According to Josephus, a Pharisee priest, the lampstand in the Temple represented the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Our 3 heavens are Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Paul was caught up to the 3rd Heaven, Saturn (Paradise) (II Cor 12:2-4)

7 BC, 13th year of Temple construction, THE TRIPLE CONJUNCTIONS OF JUPITER AND SATURN (known as "Protector of the Jews") COULD HAVE BEEN THE REASON HEROD KILLED BABIES UNDER 2 YEARS OLD IN BETHLEHEM in BC 5

6 BC, 14th year of Temple construction, Febuary 25, Earth's 3 heavens, 1. Mars, 2. Jupiter and 3. Saturn, came to within 8 degrees of each other in PISCES (this only happens every 800 yrs). --6 BC, Wed, 15 Sep, Julian: 1,453,673

JESUS' CONCEPTION

--6 BC, Mon 6 Dec, Julian: 1,453,755, Kislev 24, 3751 (385 day yr), 14th year of Temple construction

Hag 2:18,19 says, "Consider (sum labab, take it to heart) now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation (JESUS, 1Co 3:11) of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it. 19 Is the seed (zera, seed or child) yet in the barn? (a saying, meaning is she pregnant) yea (i.e., YES, Jesus was conceived), as yet the vine (Jesus), and the fig tree (Israel), and the pomegranate (meaning upright), and the olive tree (Israel with the Gentiles grafted in), hath not brought forth (NASA, lifted up): from (min, after) this day will I bless you" (i.e., Jesus was conceived on Kislev 24, and the Rapture will be after that Kislev 24).

1Co_3:11 says, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

THIS NOVA HERALDED THE BIRTH OF JESUS AND PROBABLY MADE THE WISE MEN START THEIR TRIP

5 BC, A NOVA, MEANING "NEW STAR," ACTUALLY AN EXPLODING STAR, WAS SEEN IN CAPRICORN. It probably was what the wise men had been watching for.

The Chinese recorded it, it was seen close to Alpha and Beta Capricornii March 10, and was visible 70 days. JESUS' death and resurrection are pictured in CAPRICORNUS. The Lord named the stars. The 2nd brightest star is DENEB AL GEDI, meaning THE LORD, OR SACRIFICE, COMETH.

THE LORD "SHALL COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN"

Hos. 6:3 says, "he shall COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."

His First Advent is as the Former Rain in Israel, Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets that begins their Civil Year when the sun is in VIRGO.

His Second Advent is as the Latter Rain, Nisan 1, the first day of the Regnal and Sacred Year in the spring (Eze, 29:17,21), when the sun is in ARIES (March 21 to April 20), the LAMB pictures Jesus as the Lamb of the tribe of Judah. Aries means battle strife. The brightest star is El Natik, the wounded or slain. Second brightest is Al Sheratan, meaning the bruised.

At the time of the Crucifixion, the unnatural darkness may have been to give the people a vivid view of Aries. Those 2 stars would have stood out.

--5 BC, Another Nova was also seen near the star Altair, meaning the flier or flying (eagle)

JESUS' BIRTH

--5 BC, March 25, Julian 1,453,865, Feast of Firstfruits, John the Baptist born
--5 BC, MON 4 SEP, JESUS BORN, Julian: 1,454,028, Tishri 1, 3757, Feast of Trumpets (354 day yr), (SABBATIC YEAR) (273-day gestation), 15th year of Temple construction

SIGN OF REV 12 WAS IN THE SKY, VIRGO WAS CLOTHED WITH THE SUN (i.e., the Sun was in Virgo) AND THE MOON WAS UNDER HER FEET

--5 BC, 15th year of Temple construction
--5 BC, Sat 25 Nov, Julian: 1,454,110, Kislev 24, 3753 (355 day yr)
--5 BC, Josephus (Ant. XVII, ii, 4) event: 'when all the people of the Jews gave assurance of their goodwill to Caesar, and to the king's government, these very men [the Pharisees] did not swear, being above six thousand.' From the context of these words in Josephus, this census of allegiance to Caesar Augustus occurred ABOUT ONE YEAR BEFORE THE DEATH OF HEROD THE GREAT 4 BC, 16th year of Temple construction, Herod died between eclipse of Mar. 13 (Adar 25, 3755) and Passover (no other eclipse is possible, because Esther's fast of Adar 13 did not precede them (Josephus Ant. XVII. VI. 4,5; Ant XVII. VIII.1).
Ant. XVII. vi. 4: "Now Now it happened, that during the time of the high priesthood of this Matthias, there was another person made high priest for a single day, that very day which the Jews observe as A FAST (i.e., Esther's Fast, Nisan 13). The occasion was this:--This Matthias the high priest, ON THE NIGHT BEFORE THAT DAY WHEN THE FAST WAS TO BE CELEBRATED, seemed, in a dream, to have conversation with his wife; and because he could not officiate himself on that account, Joseph, the son of Ellemus, his kinsman, assisted him in that sacred office. But Herod deprived this Matthias of the high priesthood, and burnt the other Matthias, who had raised the sedition (i.e., over the eagle Herod placed at the temple), with his companions, alive. AND THAT VERY NIGHT THERE WAS AN ECLIPSE OF THE MOON." (i.e., March 13, 4 BC).

Ant., XVII, viii, 1: Herod "died, the fifth day after he had caused Antipater to be slain; having reigned, since he had procured Antigonus to be slain, thirty-four years; but since he had been declared king by the Romans, thirty-seven."
Wars. I. 33. 8: "So Herod, having survived the slaughter of his son five days, died, having reigned THIRTY FOUR YEARS, since he had caused Antigonus to be slain, and obtained his kingdom; but THIRTY-SEVEN YEARS SINCE HE HAD BEEN MADE KING by the Romans."

Wars. II. I. 1,3: "Now the necessity which Archelaus was under of taking a journey to Rome was the occasion of new disturbances; for when he had mourned for his father seven says, and had given a very expensive funeral feast...at the FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD, WHICH WAS NOW AT HAND, AND IS BY THE JEWS CALLED THE PASSOVER" (i.e., they ate unleavened bread on Passover). Fred Espenak, at NASA, listed the Lunar Eclipse as March 13, 4 BC. The correlation is perfect. YourSky shows that March 13, 4 BC was the day of the Full Moon in Virgo. That is necessary for there to be a Lunar Eclipse.
Josephus Ant. XVII. VIII. 4 says, "Now Archelaus paid him so much respect, as to continue his mourning till the seventh day; for so many days are appointed for it by the law of our fathers; and when he had given a treat to the multitude, and LEFT OFF HIS MOURNING, he went up into the temple...and took his seat, in a throne made of gold". He left for Rome to get his kingship confirmed between Unleavened Bread and Pentecost.

When he was adopted, he also received grants of proconsular power and tribunician power; and in A.D. 13 his proconsular power was made co-extensive with that of Augustus. [11] In effect, Tiberius was now co-princeps with Augustus so that when the latter finally died on 19 August A.D. 14, Tiberius's position was unassailable and the continuation of the Principate a foregone conclusion. After 55 years living at the behest of his stepfather, Tiberius finally assumed the mantle of sole power." (http://www.roman-emperors.org/tiberius.htm)
