THE TEMPLE SHOWS US WHERE WE WILL GO IN THE RAPTURE, PART 2

By Marilyn Agee, 3-8-15

The priest that burned the red heifer had to be able to look into the door of the Temple through the Nicanor Gate (15 cubits tall) above the 15 semi-circular steps into the door of the Temple from the place where the red heifer was burned on the Mt. of Olives.

THE NICANOR GATE


The grand Nicanor Gate, constructed by a man by that name, and having two rooms on either side of the arch, was in front of the temple Herod built. It gave access from the Court of the Women to the Court of the Priests in which the Altar and Brazen Sea were located.

In front of the Nicanor Gate were 15 semi-circular steps that suggest a location on a sphere. The Levites stood on those steps and sang the 15 Psalms of the "degrees" (Psa 120-134). The Hebrew maalah, translated "degrees", means elevation, the act of taking a journey to a higher place, a going up stairs. Everything ties in to tell the story that we will go up to Heaven in the Rapture, but there is more.

THE VEIL IN FRONT OF THE OUTER TEMPLE DOOR SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN AN IMAGE OF THE UNIVERSE, AND THE LAMPSTAND INSIDE STOOD FOR THE SUN AND THE NAKED-EYE PLANETS

In Wars V. 5. 4. 5. Josephus said, "...before these doors (i.e., of the Temple) there was a veil of equal largeness with the doors. It was a Babylonian curtain, embroidered with blue and fine linen, and scarlet, and purple, and of a contexture that was truly wonderful. Nor was this mixture of colours without its mystical interpretation, but was a kind of IMAGE OF THE UNIVERSE....Now the seven lamps signified the seven planets ("including the sun among them" Ant. III. VI. 7).

The Temple's three cubed sections represented the three heavens.

2Co 12:2-4 says, "I knew a man in Christ (i.e., Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven (1. Mars, 2. Jupiter, and 3. Saturn). 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."

THE SEVEN PLANETS

The seven "planets" were 1. Sun, 2. Mercury, 3. Venus, 4. Earth, 5. Mars, 6. Jupiter, and 7. Saturn. That was a great introduction to the three cubes of the Temple that represented Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, whose length, width and height are equal. The Holy Place represented Mars and Jupiter. The Holy of Holies represented Saturn, Heaven.

THE "ALTAR OF EARTH," LATER THE BRAZEN ALTAR, AND THE BRAZEN SEA REPRESENTED THE PLANET EARTH; THEY WERE SITTING ON BEDROCK IN FRONT OF THE TEMPLE

Earth is 70% water, so the Brazen Sea, made of bronze (an alloy of copper and tin) or copper, both having antibacterial qualities, was appropriate. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, was not used until the 13th century.

Exo_20:24,25 says, "An ALTAR OF EARTH thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. 25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it."

The Brasen Altar and the Brazen Sea, holding about 17,000 gallons of water, represented the planet Earth with its land and seas, and they were both sitting on Earth's bedrock in front of the Temple. No wonder no tool could be used on rock used to build altars. Earth is God made, not man made.

"THE SEA REPRESENTED THE WORLD"

"The symbolism of the brazen sea is described in detail in the Midrash Tadshe. The sea represented the world...and it was round at the top (according to the Talmud passage above cited) as the heavens (i.e., the three heavens, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) are round." (http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/3659-brazen-sea)

Ultimately, the Brazen Altar pictured the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, on Earth. He died on Earth that believers might enter the Holy of Holies, Heaven. The Crucifixion and Resurrection made both the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:16,17 and the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor. 15:51-54 possible. The First-Trump seems to be Mid-Trib, and the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of the Lord, which is also the Day of God's Wrath at the end of the shortened Great Tribulation.

AS IF SUSPENDED IN SPACE, THE THREE CUBES OF THE TEMPLE REPRESENTED THE THREE HEAVENS, MARS, JUPITER AND SATURN

Supporting the platform under the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies were subterranean arches and pillars to raise the level of the platform under the Temple. The Brazen Altar and Brazen Sea represented the planet Earth, so they were on Earth's bedrock.

"Preliminary ground penetrating radar probes by Tuvia Sagiv...suggest vaults, perhaps "kippim" (rabbinical arches), and other structures which one would expect below the Temple, to the south. The northern sites are virtually solid rock." (http://www.templemount.org/theories.html)


The three cubes in the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies pictured the planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn hovering over the Earth. Saturn is the third heaven, paradise.

2Co 12:2-4 says, "I knew a man in Christ (i.e., Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."

The Temple's three cubes represent these three heavenly spheres, as if a balloon was inflated in each box. The two cubes of the Holy Place represented the spherical Mars and Jupiter. The Holy of Holies (Heaven) was one cube, but it was the third heaven, Saturn. When its Veil tore when Jesus was crucified, it demonstrated that the way into Heaven was now open.

UNDER THE TEMPLE PLATFORM THE AQUEDUCT RAN TO THE EL KAS FOUNTAIN AND THE CISTERN CALLED THE GREAT SEA

The aqueduct entered the Temple Mount and turned southeast. It ran to the El Kas fountain and then into the largest cistern on the Temple Mount, called the Great Sea, which held 2,000,000 gallons of water. In the Temple Mount water purification system, the constantly running water cascaded downhill from cistern to cistern. The water used to wash the Court of the Priests did not run into the Great Sea, it ran into the the Kidron Valley.

Since the aqueduct came into the Temple Mount at the Wilson Arch and turned southeast, there is no way the Temple could have been north of the Wilson Arch.

THE HOLY PLACE AND THE HOLY OF HOLIES REPRESENT THE THREE HEAVENS

The three cubes of equal length, breadth and height in the Temple represented Mars and Jupiter. The Holy of Holies cube represented Saturn, Heaven.

Isa_11:12 says, "And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners (kanaph, quarters) of the earth."

In the Temple, these three cubes were NOT ON BEDROCK, but were suspended on a platform over arches, vaults and pillars where the bedrock fell away between the bedrock under the Dome of the Rock and the pillars and arches under the Al Aqsa Mosque. The rear wall of the Holy of Holies lined up with the Wailing Wall.

Neither the Holy Place, nor the Holy of Holies was on the bedrock under the Dome of the Rock. The bedrock drops steeply on the west south of the Dome of the Rock. The Holy of Holies was on the platform suspended on arches, vaults and pillars in the air above bedrock south of the Dome of the Rock, because Heaven is suspended in the sky above Earth.

The courtyard of the Temple, the Azara, represented Earth. It is not referred to as kodesh, a holy thing, but the third cube of the Temple is called the Kodesh Kodashim, the Holy of Holies.

Jesus was sacrificed on Earth, represented by the altar of sacrifice in the courtyard of the Temple, which is not kodesh, holy. He is now in the third heaven, Saturn, represented by the Holy of Holies, the Kodesh Kodashim. The Ark was placed in the Holy of Holies, which represented the third heaven, where the throne of Jesus is located.

Rev 11:17-19 says, "We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple THE ARK of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

The throne of the only God/man that ever existed is on Saturn. It took me over 7 years to figure out what Ezekiel's visions meant. I read books from BIOLA's Seminary Collection during those years with no luck. I had to look up the meanings of the original words in Strong's Concordance before it began to make sense. When I got to "brightness" (nogahh, brilliancy, clear shining) in Eze. 1:4, the fog began to clear. That was sunshine.

Eze 1:1 says, "as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God."

Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden (i.e., they rise in the eastern sky) Cherubims (i.e., terrestrial planets), and a flaming sword (i.e., Satan's asteroid Wormwood) which turned every way, to keep the way of (or to) the tree of life", which is on Saturn.

Eze 1:4,5 says, "And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud (i.e., the Asteroid Belt), and a fire infolding itself (i.e., the Sun), and a brightness (i.e., sunshine) was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures (chay lively things, animated, they are depicted with wings, because they fly). And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man (adam, which means red clay, i.e., the four flying things are the terrestrial planets orbiting the Sun. Their concentric orbits look like wheels within wheels.


Eze 1:10 says, "As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle."

The four faces represent the four directions. When Israel camped around the Tabernacle, the compass points were marked with flags. The first, representing east, had the face of a lion. The second, representing south, had the face of a man. The third, representing west, had the face of an ox. The fourth, representing north, had the face of an eagle.

A MAJOR CLUE, EARTH IS ONE OF THE LIVELY FLYING THINGS

Eze 1:15 says, "Now as I beheld the living creatures (i.e., lively flying things), behold one wheel (i.e., orbit) upon the earth by the living creatures (i.e., the other three terrestrial planets), with his four faces." Earth, and all the planets, face four directions as they orbit.

Eze 1:16 says, "The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel" (i.e., four concentric orbits).

Beryl comes in a rainbow of colors. The emerald and aquamarine are varieties of beryl. Some green beryl turns sky-blue if heat treated.

Eze 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament (i.e., expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the terrestrial planets) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone (i.e., the September birthstone of Jesus, the sapphire, means heaven and dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (i.e., the only God/man is Jesus) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber (i.e., Saturn is amber), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (i.e., from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire (i.e., as the 1st lamp on the lampstand), and it had brightness (i.e., Saturn's ring system) round about. 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."

Eze 10:1-7 says, "I looked, and, behold, in the firmament (i.e., expanse of space) that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were (symbolic language) a sapphire stone (i.e., Saturn), as the appearance of the likeness of a throne (i.e., the throne of Jesus). 2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (i.e., orbits of the 4 terrestrial planets), even under the cherub (i.e., Satan, on his asteroid Wormwood), and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims (i.e., it orbits between the terrestrial planets), and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight. 3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court. 4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD'S glory. 5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. 6 And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels (i.e., orbits), from between the cherubims (i.e., the terrestrial planets); then he went in, and stood beside the wheels. 7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire (i.e., representing Satan's asteroid Wormwood that is to destroy Babylon) that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out."

Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (i.e., split) Rahab (i.e., Satan's planet, now the Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon?"

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (i.e., the asteroid Wormwood)? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE IS NEXT ON THE AGENDA

2Th 2:1-6 says, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him (i.e., in the Rapture), 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ (i.e, should be Day of the Lord, as in the Sinaitic Codex, the Vatican Codex, the Alexandrine Codex, and the WEB Bible) is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away (should be departing, i.e., the Rapture) first, and that man of sin be revealed (i.e., second), the son of perdition (i.e., the Satan-indwelt False Prophet); 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what (i.e., the Holy Spirit) withholdeth that he (i.e., the False Prophet) might be revealed in his time" (i.e., in the Great Tribulation).

THE FIRST TRUMPET

Rev 4:1-3 ties in. It 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 (i.e., at the First-Trump Mid-Trib Rapture), 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 (i.e., Jesus) sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is the first and the last): and there was a rainbow (i.e., Saturn's rings) round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald" (i.e., the stone of Judah; Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah).

ANOTHER PICTURE NEAR THE TEMPLE: "BETWEEN US AND YOU THERE IS A GREAT GULF FIXED"

A Muslim Cemetery is outside the Temple Mount, on the east side. A Christian Cemetery is on the facing west side of the Mt. of Olives. Between them is the deep Kidron valley. Does that remind you of anything? Kidron means to be dark, dirty or mourn. It reminds me of hell. It was the scene of a thorough cleansing of unjust altars and images.

Luke 16:22-26 says, "And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence."

LOOK HOW "KIDRON" IS USED

1Ki_2:37 says, "For it shall be, that on the day thou goest out, and passest over the brook Kidron, thou shalt know for certain that thou shalt surely die: thy blood shall be upon thine own head."

1Ki 15:13 says, "Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron."

2Ki_23:12 says, "And the altars that were on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the LORD, did the king beat down, and brake them down from thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron."

2Ch_29:16 says, "And the priests went into the inner part of the house of the LORD, to cleanse it, and brought out all the uncleanness that they found in the temple of the LORD into the court of the house of the LORD. And the Levites took it, to carry it out abroad into the brook Kidron."

2Ch_30:14 says, "And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron."

The Muslim cemetery is lower than the Holy of Holies, which represents Heaven, and lower than the Altar, which represents Earth.

THE TEMPLE WAS NOT OVER THE GIHON SPRING; THE TEMPLE WATER CAME FROM THE EIN EITAM SPRING NEAR SOLOMON'S POOLS SOUTH OF BETHLEHEM

Built into the sealed aqueduct was a 100' siphon in a natural valley. The Ein Eitam spring was 30 meters higher than the Temple Mount. Because of that and the huge sealed siphon, the incoming water had enough head on it to reach the highest mikvah of the Temple. It had the constant flow necessary to cleanse the floor of the court outside the Temple of blood from the sacrifices. The priest opened a valve at the base of the wall and let the water run until the floor looked like milk. There was no pumping, catching water in buckets to throw on the floor, or mopping. The floor was self-cleaning after they started the water flowing. There was plenty of water, no matter how long it took to cleanse the floor. The bloody water flowed into the Kidron Valley.

"According to the Mishnah, the way that blood was washed from the floor of the Priest's Court where sacrifices were performed was to open the floodgate of the aqueduct directly into the court." (http://www.bibleinterp.com/articles/crapo_032901.shtml)

"At the south-western corner [of the altar] there were two holes like two narrow nostrils by which the blood that was poured over the western base and the southern base used to run down and mingle in the water-channel and flow out into the brook Kidron." (Mishnah Middoth [Measurements] 3:2). For other mentions of this drainage channel, see Mishnah tractates Yoma [Day of Atonement]" (http://www.scotthahn.com/download/attachment/3449)

THE TEMPLE WAS AT A HIGHER ELEVATION THAN THE CITY OF DAVID

The City of David is 1000 ft. south of the Temple Mount. It has no connection with the Temple Aqueduct. It is built near the Gihon spring, an intermittent karst spring that at best only runs about 5 times a day. In the dry season, it might run 1 time a day, or not even that. The slit its water comes over at intervals is too narrow for a man to crawl through. The water is below the level of the City of David, which is below the level of the Temple Mount.

1Ki_8:1 says, "Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring UP the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion."

THE TIME HAS NOT YET COME FOR THE TEMPLE TO BE REBUILT

In 363, Emperor Julian, on his way to engage Persia, stopped at the ruins of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Julian granted the Jews permission to begin rebuilding the Temple.[22] To Christians, the destroyed Temple was a symbol of Christianity's triumph over Judaism, and Julian, was an opponent of Christianity.[22] Rebuilding work began, but was ended by the Galilee earthquake of 363.[22][23] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_Mount

THIS STONE, WHICH SAYS, "THE TRUMPETING PLACE", WAS FOUND ON THE GROUND AT THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT, AMPLE PROOF THAT THE TEMPLE WAS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT


A stone (2.43x1 m) with Hebrew inscription "To the Trumpeting Place" excavated by Benjamin Mazar at the southwest foot of the Temple Mount was obviously part of the Second Temple court.

After the Temple was destroyed, Fort Antonia dwelled upon its ruins. General Silva of the Tenth Legion said about 73 AD, "It (i.e., the Temple) is now demolished to the very foundations (i.e., so the foundations may still be there), and hath nothing left but that monument of it preserved, I mean the camp of those that hath destroyed it, which still dwells upon its ruins." s(https://kingshishak.wordpress.com/page/2/)

Therefore, I think the Temple court was in the southern half of the Temple Mount. We can be sure that the aqueduct entered the Temple Mount at Wilson's Arch (south of the Dome of the Rock) and turned south-east toward the Al Kas Fountain and the Great Sea cistern.

Josephus, a Pharisee priest, said that Herod doubled the size of the temple, and that the outer walls made a perfect square. (War V.5,2; VI.2,9 with VI.5,4 and Antiquities XV.9,3)

In Wars I. V. 4, Josephus mentioned, "Antonia, which was a fortress that JOINED TO THE NORTH PART OF THE TEMPLE."

In Wars, chapter 5, Josephus' heading is "A DESCRIPTION OF THE TEMPLE". In paragraph 2, he wrote, "The cloisters [of the outmost court] were in breadth thirty cubits, while, six furlongs, INCLUDING THE TOWER OF ANTONIA."

Speaking of the four towers of the Tower of Antonia, Josephus said, "the south-east corner was seventy cubits high (i.e., higher than the other three towers), that from thence the whole temple might be viewed; but on the corner where it joined to the two cloisters of the temple, it had passages down to them both, through which the guard (for there always lay in this tower a Roman Legion) went several ways among the cloisters, with their arms, on the Jewish festivals, in order to watch the people, that they might not there attempt to make any innovations; for the temple was a fortress that guarded the city, as was the tower of Antonia a guard to the temple...as that hill on which the tower of Antonia stood, was the highest of these three, so did it adjoin to the new city, and was the only place that hindered the sight of the temple on the north."

Josephus said, "The tower of Antonia...was built upon [around] a rock fifty cubits high and on all sides precipitous...the rock was covered from its base upwards with smooth flagstones" (Jewish War, V.v,8 para.238). Before construction of the fortress, the "Rock" was 50 cubits high (75 feet), but Herod later built a platform around it (when it became the north/south center of the walled fortress) and this made it not as high and it became accessible for judicial purposes. That "Rock" around which Fort Antonia was built (and mentioned by Josephus) was the chief geographical feature of the site. It was near this "Rock" that Pilate had his residence at the time of Jesus' trial." (http://askelm.com/temple/t991001.htm)

If that high rock "became accessible for judicial purposes", it might portray Satan's asteroid Wormwood. It will be used for judicial purposes.

Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star (aster) from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."

The Temple and the Tower of Antonia were both on the Temple Mount. The Temple area was one furlong by one furlong. Fort Antonia was one furlong by one furlong at one time. That rock under the Dome of the Rock was never in the Holy of Holies. It was in the Tower of Antonia.

In Wars, chapter 5, Josephus' heading is "A DESCRIPTION OF THE TEMPLE". In paragraph 2, he wrote, "The cloisters [of the outmost court] were in breadth thirty cubits, while, six furlongs, INCLUDING THE TOWER OF ANTONIA."

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Psa 124:7 says, "Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped" (malat, leap out, i.e., in the Rapture).

Psa 126:5,6 says, "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."

Rev 2:24,25, 28,29 says, "unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the DEPTHS OF SATAN, AS THEY SPEAK; I will put upon you none other burden...that which ye have already (Christ in their hearts) hold fast till I come (at the Rapture)....And I WILL GIVE HIM THE MORNING STAR" (SATURN, HEAVEN, JESUS' THRONE). He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

ON THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD, ALL NATIONS WILL ATTACK JERUSALEM, BUT THE LORD WILL FIGHT FOR JERUSALEM

Zech 14:1-4 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle (i.e., on Joshua's Long Day). 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south."

JESUS WILL PROBABLY RETURN ON THE SABBATH DAY, MAYBE NISAN 1, 5776, SATURDAY, APRIL 9, 2016, THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE RESURRECTION ON APRIL 9, 30 AD (JULIAN)

Act 1:11,12 says, "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. 12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey."
