Pro and Con 1294
Please forgive me for not getting this file organized better. I wanted to get the news posted. My son's computer is down, and I have been trying to figure out what to do. It has a list of his computer parts on screen. It calls for the System Recovery Disk, but will not accept either the System Recovery Disk that came with it or another one like it. I thought I'd go to housecall, etc. and get my computer as clean as possible, then try to make the simplest startup disk possible to try on Dave's. It took 3.5 hours for the scan.
WILL THE RAPTURE BE IN 2006?
Keep in mind that "The Cancun Summit Mandated The North American Union BY 2007". The Leaders Joint Statement of March 31, 2006 (http://tinyurl.com/pdzlk) presented six action points TO INSURE that the North American Union (i.e., the NAU) be in place BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR". (http://my.opera.com/prosperingbear/blog/show.dml/305326). That would leave 2006 for the Rapture.
POSSIBLE DATE OF THE RAPTURE
If the NAU becomes fact in 2007, then the 10 kings of Rev. 13 could receive their crowns in 2007. The Rapture has to precede Rev. 13. Therefore, the Rapture could come in 2006.
Since the "trump of God" of II Thess. 4:16 could sound on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, Sept. 23, 2006, is a possibility. However, the Church is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. What are the ramifications of that? In the past two Temples, Solomon's (the son of David's, type of Jesus, the Son of David's) Temple and Herod's Temple burned on the same date. Surely that is a sign.
Consider Thursday and Friday, Aug. 3/4 (5766, Av. 9/10, the month and days that the TWO PREVIOUS TEMPLES WENT UP IN CLOUDS OF SMOKE. At that point in history, the earthly Temple did not reside on Earth any more. At this point in history, the Church, the temple of the Holy Spirit, might not reside on Earth, any more, either. We might go up into the clouds, the same way Jesus ascended into the clouds, on the same day that the earthly Temple went up in smoke.
DAY SOLOMON'S TEMPLE BURNED
Jer. 52:12,13 says, "Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month (i.e., Av 10), which was the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem, And BURNED THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire".
DAY HEROD'S TEMPLE BURNED
In 70 AD, on Av 9, the Temple's outer buildings were set on fire. On Av 10, the sanctuary burned. Our August 4, 2006, spans Av 9 and 10, 5766. Therefore, be ready in case the Rapture is coming on August 4.
NEW 'SANHEDRIN' PLANS REBUILDING OF TEMPLE
...The Israeli rabbinical council involved with re-establishing the SANHEDRIN, is calling upon all groups involved in Temple Mount research to PREPARE DETAILED ARCHITECTURAL PLANS FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE JEWISH HOLY TEMPLE....
The group, which calls itself the Sanhedrin, is calling on the Jewish people to contribute toward the acquisition of materials for the purpose of rebuilding the Temple Ė including the gathering and PREPARATION OF PREFABRICATED, DISASSEMBLED PORTIONS TO BE STORED AND READY FOR RAPID ASSEMBLY...
That sounds like they are getting ready to build the Temple soon and fast.
Rev. 11:1-3 applies at the time of the Rapture. It says, "there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (as the Church, including John, will hear at the Rapture), and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein (i.e., in the inner court). But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles (i.e., the Muslims, who have the Dome of the Rock on the north side and the Al Aqsa Mosque on the south side of the Temple): and the holy city (Jerusalem) shall they (the Gentiles, including the Muslims) tread under foot forty and two months (i.e., to Mid-Trib). And I will give power unto my two witnesses (Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., until Mid-Trib), clothed in sackcloth."
The Temple and inner court should be built between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque, not on the Dome of the Rock. Josephus showed that Fort Antonia was built over the rock and that there were STAIRS going down from Fort Antonia to the double cloisters of the temple's northwest corner.
The Bible shows that there were stairs at the junction of Fort Antonia and the outer court of the Temple. Acts 21:30-40 says, "the people ran together: and THEY TOOK PAUL, AND DREW HIM OUT OF THE TEMPLE: and forthwith the doors were shut. And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar. Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran DOWN (i.e., ran down the stairs) unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul. Then the chief captain came near, and took him, and commanded him to be bound with two chains; and demanded who he was, and what he had done. And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, HE COMMANDED HIM TO BE CARRIED INTO THE CASTLE (i.e., into Fort Antonia, which was built like a castle). And when he (Paul) came upon the STAIRS, so it was, that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people. For the multitude of the people followed after, crying, Away with him. And as Paul was to be led into the castle (Fort Antonia), he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek? Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers? But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people. And when he had given him licence, PAUL STOOD ON THE STAIRS, and beckoned with the hand unto the people. And when there was made a great silence, he spake unto them in the Hebrew tongue".
Fort Antonia was built on a higher elevation than the Temple, because the bedrock was higher on the upper half of the Temple Mount. There were stairs between the two, just as there are stairs between the Dome of the Rock and the Temple site now.
Temple Update: New Discovery
by Chuck Missler (http://www.khouse.org/articles/1995/77/)
Aristobulus I, King of Judea 104-103 b.c., had his brother Antigonus murdered in a subterranean passage to Strato's Tower, which was between the Temple and the Antonia Fortress proper. This would seem to indicate that the rock outcropping presently covered by the famed Dome of the Rock was actually part of the Antonia Fortress, not the Temple. This makes much more sense since this also would place the fosse (moat) north of the Antonia rather than between the Antonia and the Temple.
Jerusalem was always vulnerable from the north, as it is protected by valleys on the east, south, and west. The ancient records also indicate that the Antonia was directly adjacent to the Temple precincts. It all seems to make sense.
TWO REASONS PART OF THE WESTERN WALL FELL
By Marilyn Agee
1. To show us where the Temple was located
2. To center the man's face in the segment of the wailing wall as it now stands
The primary reason a segment of the western wall fell is, according to my thinking, to show us where the Temple should be built. I think it should be DUE EAST OF THE WAILING WALL that is still standing. I think the Temple's north and south walls should line up as close as possible with the length of the wailing wall as it now stands. That segment of the western wall is between what is left of Wilson's Arch and the break.
Significantly, THE MAN'S FACE IS NOW CENTERED IN THAT SPAN OF WALL, just as the Ark with its cherubim was centered north and south in the Holy of Holies. Remember that in Ex. 25:22, the Lord said, "And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel."
The picture above is an aerial view of the western wall that was taken in 1972. That section of wall that fell on Valentine's Day in 2004, was already bulging so much, that I think the Lord had to hold it in place until the right time came to bring it down. Since the symbol of Valentines Day is love, Saturday, Feb. 14, 2004, was a perfect time for part of the wall to fall. It sent the message that the Lord loves his Bride. I think the two faces on the wall represent the Bride and Bridegroom.
This picture was taken after the segment of the western wall fell. The man's face is clear. The woman's face is on our right facing the wall. The white pieces underneath frame the faces. To cut out haze, look at the faces through a hole in your fist.
How did the Lord bring down the wall? He chose to use the forces of nature. It rained heavily for the preceding week. Three days before it fell, on Feb. 11, a 5.0 earthquake loosened the stones so it would fall on Feb. 14. This earthquake also cracked the roof of the Dome of the Rock. To cap everything off, it snowed for two days. Jerusalem and the Mt. of Olives got a foot of snow, but other surrounding locations didn't get any. That reveals the Lord's hand.
Another Clear Message From the G-d of Israel: Wall Collapses on the Temple Mount Near the Western Wall (on a snowy day)
"On Saturday, 22 Shevat 5764 (14 February 2004), another wall on the Temple Mount collapsed in the area of the Western Wall. The wall was the continuation of the Western Wall and which contained the western (Mugrabe) gate leading to the Temple Mount. Stones from the collapsed wall fell in the women's prayer area at the Western Wall while women were praying in the area. It was a miracle that none were hurt.
As stated above, this happened on Saturday while Jerusalem was being covered with snow" (http://www.templemountfaithful.org/News/20040216.htm).
Jerusalem was blanketed in a foot of snow in a 48-hour storm. For a city that gets a major snowstorm on an average of once every 7 years, it's no surprise that just about everything shut down when the storm hit (http://www.bibleplaces.com/jerusalemsnow.htm).
If that wall had fallen in 1972, I might not have seen the significance. Now that I have been studying the wall and the position of the Temple almost non-stop, I can see the significance. The portion of the wailing wall that is still standing shows where the northern and southern walls of the Temple should go.
Since the collapse of that segment of the western wall left the face of the Bridegroom centered on the wailing wall, I think it is a sign that the Lord pre-planned how much of the wall fell. It looks like the Temple was due east of the remaining segment, in the trees between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Pieces of Stone From the Western Wall of the Temple Mount Loosen and Break Off
The collapse near the Western wall and part of the womenís area ...
The earthquake which occurred on the 11th was an earthquake of a magnitude of 5 on the Richter scale. The quake was felt very strongly, especially in Jerusalem. Despite the fact that it was only a moderate earthquake, houses and furniture shook. On the day after, 11 aftershocks were felt. Now, after the damage from the earthquake has been checked, no building collapsed besides this wall in the Western Wall area. This is a clear message from the G-d of Israel to Israel, its enemies and to all the world that He is determined to fulfil His promises of thousands of years ago and that nothing will prevent Him from cleansing and purifying His holy hill from the foreigners and enemies of the G-d and people of Israel and that the Third Temple is soon to be built....
It was so unique that the earthquake of 11 February also caused a crack in the ceiling of the Knesset office of the Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon....
"Western Wall Hill - Out;
Temple Period Finds - In"
Arutz Sheva, 1 Tevet 5765 / Dec 13, '04 (which happens to be my birthday)
...The Jerusalem Municipality has decided to take down the hill that leads up from the Western Wall (Kotel) entrance to the Temple Mount, for fear that it might otherwise collapse. The walkway up the hill leads to the Mughrabim Gate, which is currently the only entrance for Jews to the Temple Mount. The city plans to replace the hill with a bridge that will lead into the Mughrabim Gate.
The plans are a bonanza for students of Jerusalem history, as the removal of the hill will uncover an eight-meter high gate leading into the Temple Mount. THE GATE, DATING FROM THE PERIOD OF THE SECOND TEMPLE, is known as Barclay's Gate, after the 19th-century American consul who first identified it....
The collapse began last year following a week of heavy rains, a snowstorm and an earthquake.
The height of the threshold of Barclay's Gate, and the height of the aqueduct underneath the Temple area, will indicate the height of Herod's Temple. It was lower than the area is today. Soil was brought in to obliterate the traces of the Temple foundation. The area was plowed as prophesied.
Minor collapse highlights Temple Mount instability
Feb. 17, 2004 - A moderate earthquake last week in Jerusalem, followed by a snowstorm, evidently weakened a portion of the Temple Mount retaining wall, resulting in a partial collapse of the wall. The cave in - which sent large rocks crashing down into the women's prayer section in front of the Western Wall... highlighted again the precarious overall condition of Judaism's holiest site...(Source:Jerusalem Newswire)
PRIESTS TO TRAIN IN FULL-SIZE MODEL OF TEMPLE
Oct., 2003 - IN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF MITZPE YERICHO, BETWEEN JERUSALEM AND JERICHO, A FULL-SIZE MODEL OF THE THIRD TEMPLE IS BEING BUILT TO ALLOW THE TRAINING OF PRIESTS FOR SERVICE IN A FUTURE REBUILT TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.
Backers of the project say the Jewish people are waiting for the Redemption and must prepare themselves for the coming of the Messiah. (Source:Israel Today).
OLAM MIKDASH - THE WORLD OF THE TEMPLE
1999 - Now even bigger plans are being made. A new project has been initiated called Olam Mikdash (Oh-lahm Meekdahsh) or The World of the Temple. This is a project to build, in Israel, A LIFE-SIZED MODEL OF THE TEMPLE WHICH WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. In this model not only will the Temple itself be recreated in its entirety, but also the various ceremonies will be enacted each and every day. These will include not only the Daily Services, but also those of the Sabbath, New Moon, and Festivals; all held on the appropriate days.
The primary purpose of this full sized model will be to provide training for the Priests and Levites who will eventually serve in the real Temple (or Tabernacle) when it is finally erected on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Olam Mikdash is to be built just outside of Jerusalem within the city of Maíale Adumin. This is on the road that runs from Jerusalem to Jericho. A twenty acre site has already been acquired. For those who may be familiar with this area, it is just behind The Good Samaritan Inn.
The Olam Mikdash project is a joint effort that involves several individuals from both Israel and the United States. It is being conducted in conjunction with the Temple Institute of Jerusalem which is headed by Rabbi Israel Ariel (which means lion of God, i.e., a type of Jesus the Lion of the tribe of Judah). Olam Mikdash has the backing of the Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Jerusalem, and is also under Orthodox Jewish supervision. The project has been incorporated under the laws of Israel as an International Corporation, and is compatible with American law.

Holy of Holies of Solomonís Temple Discovered Under Temple Mount Plaza in Jerusalem
Summary: Messianic Jewish believer tells an unbelievable tale of what she witnessed first-hand under the Temple Mount.
Sister E., a Messianic Jewish believer, reports that in the fall of 1996, acting as a "nurse-helper," she accompanied a very elderly group of Jews from many countries on a Hebrew-speaking tour which went under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
There were two police check points in the access tunnel, which came after the last place where Gentiles can presently go. Sister E. reports that the tour guide pushed a button on a wall-mounted console, and a heavy door opened into a huge chamber, under a portion of the Temple Mount Plaza above.
The chamber contained a model of the to-be-built [Third] Temple, plus many other rooms which were not shown to the people on the tour. The tour guide said that they had located the Holy of Holies of Solomonís Temple, and that they could begin Levitical law worship at any time (if they were not, in fact already doing it, and were stopped on March 13, 1997). There is more rationale/facts to be explained than what is written here.
They had a model of the Temple and they were training rabbis in Levitical worship. They stated that they could build a full-sizedTemple in three days. The blocks, etc. have already been cut, as we all know.
It appears that Herod built an encased "sub-basement" under the Second Temple, with double "Wailing wall-type" stones all around. Inside the huge "encasement/foundation" stones was then hidden the remains of Solomonís Temple, including the floor plan, etc. which was not found by the Romans in 70 A.D.
Unknown by the general population, the Israelis have now excavated the whole area and pillared the entire Solomon/Ezraís [the first/smaller] Temple Area, and concealed it all just under the Temple Mount Plaza above!
"The place was cavernous and echoed, it was so large under there," reported Sister E.

Food for thought.
"The Roots of Evil in Jerusalem"
by Jerry Golden
..."The same families who own and control the Federal Reserve and other major financial institutions have their eyes set on the Temple Mount, and the Holy City of Jerusalem. Just as Scriptures say, the man who will be revealed as the anti-Christ will sit in that place, before the appearance of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua HaMashiach, and many will receive him as their messiah. Just actually how that will come about remains to be seen, but ONE THING I AM CONVINCED OF IS THAT HOLY MEN OF GOD WILL NOT BE THE ONES TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE, IT WILL BE THE ILLUMINATI. For God would not send men to that place to perform blood sacrifices. His Sonís blood was the perfect sacrifice; there is no need to shed the blood of dumb animals any longer. Yeshua did a perfect work, and it was finished. But He will return and take control of the New Temple that I feel will be built soon. But before He will return this world will have to get in such bad shape that the anti-Christ can be accepted by most as the savior who can bring peace and order to the world"....
