FACES ON THE WALL

FACES ON THE WALL

My reply

Wow! Thanks much! the bride is clearer now. This is a must see! If she is visible to me with my impaired vision, what she must be to those that can see clearly. I can see both faces best through my magnifying glass. In the picture with the Israeli flag, they are to the right and above the top of the flagstaff. I also clicked on the video and the two magnifying glasses on the left. That was even better. I'll have to go there often.

Happy Easter! Love

Me too. I got caught up in the video etc., then saw your comment afterward. The faces are indeed different, especially the bride. She is much more prominent. At first, I thought she was standing beside the Bridegroom, but her face is smaller than his, so she seems to be very close, but still behind him. (There is also another face on the right of the bride.)

What an Easter present! Have a wonderful day. Hope to see you soon. Love

My comment

Below is the picture of the hexagon taken by Voyager in 2002. Why were there only five spokes inside of a six-sided formation? What force but God's could do that? Are each of these pictures a sign? In the first picture, the hexagon is in the night sky. On the horizon, it is daytime. There we are shown that the daytime sky on a planet that looks golden from Earth can still be blue.

Immense Ice Deposits Found At South Pole Of Mars

Mar 16th, 2007

By Will Dunham

A spacecraft orbiting Mars has scanned huge deposits of water ice at its south pole so plentiful THEY WOULD BLANKET THE PLANET IN 36 FEET OF WATER if they were liquid, scientists said on Thursday.

The scientists used a joint NASA-Italian Space Agency radar instrument on the European Space Agency Mars Express spacecraft to gauge the thickness and volume of ice deposits at the Martian south pole covering an area larger than Texas.

The deposits, up to 2.3 miles thick, are under a polar cap of white frozen carbon dioxide and water, and appear to be composed of at least 90 percent frozen water, with dust mixed in, according to findings published in the journal Science.

Another sign: "Tsunami Swamps South Pacific Islands"

SINGAPORE, April 2, 07 — A powerful undersea earthquake in the South Pacific early today sent huge tides rolling across low-lying areas of the Solomon Islands, inundating entire villages and causing an unknown number of deaths, local officials reported....

The earthquake, measured at about 8.0 by the United States Geological Survey in Hawaii, struck at 7:40 A.M. local time (10:40 P.M. Sunday GMT).

The survey placed the epicenter 6.2 miles under the ocean and 25 miles from the coastline.

Within minutes, residents reported, a wave several yards high roared through villages along the west coast of the Solomon Islands....

“It was supposed to be high tide, so when we saw the sea going out we ran up to the high ground,” he said. “All the buildings on the coast are gone, washed away by the tsunami. There’s nothing left.”

My comments: "WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH

This is the another warning by a huge undersea earthquake and resulting tsunami.

Luke 21:25-36 says, "And there shall be SIGNS in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING (i.e., the tsunamis); Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall THEY (mankind on Earth on the Day of the LORD) see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (the Sign of the Son of Man). And WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION (apolutrosis, deliverance, i.e., the Rapture) DRAWETH NIGH. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (nations); When they now shoot forth (i.e., in the Six-Day War, which started June 5, 1967), ye see and know of your own selves that summer (June 21) is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS (i.e., including the Six-Day War) COME TO PASS, KNOW YE THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH AT HAND. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on ALL THEM that dwell on the face of the whole earth. WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

As for the location of Solomon's Temple, I think it lined up with the front door facing the Eastern Gate. If this is true, and be located on the North half of the present day mountain top. There is nothing of significant's on this area at present.

Here is how I see it: The Quartet will divide the Land, giving about half to the Palestinians and half to the Jews; then they will divide Jerusalem, giving the old city to the P's which they presently occupy, and the new Part to the Jews which they have built since 1948; then, the will divide the Temple giving the South half to the Muslims whose three mosks presently sit, and they will give the north half to the Jews for their Temple. This is, I think, what Ezekiel saw in Eze. 41-45, where he saw the fence constructed across the Temple Mt. from East to West to "separate the profane from the holy." This is confirmed, I think, by John in Rev. 11:1-2, Where he was instructed to "leave out the Court of the Gentiles (the South half). By the way, the Jews will take down their "walls and fences" in exchange for the "right of return" so it will again be a "land of unfenced villages and un walled cities" as Eze. predicted. Again, this is how I see things developing. In Him

My reply

I was almost through answering this, but my computer restarted itself while I slept. Since Ed's did that today, I think it was Microsoft's automatic update, which required a Restart. Anyway, I can't find my document anywhere. Not to be outdone, I'll start over again.

Josephus, a Pharisee priest, showed that the rock, now under the Dome of the Rock, was in Fort Antonia, which occupied the northern part of the Temple mount. In Ant. V. V. 8, he wrote, "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".

Only if Fort Antonia was NORTH of the Temple, could Fort Antonia meet the NORTH cloister of the Temple. Also, Fort Antonia was erected on the rock that is now under the Dome of the Rock.

Continuing, Josephus said of the Tower of Antonia, "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. The inward parts had the largeness and form of a palace, it being parted into all kinds of rooms and other conveniences, such as courts, and places for bathing, AND BROAD SPACES FOR CAMPS; insomuch that, by having all conveniences that cities wanted, it might seem to be composed of several cities, but by its magnificence, it seemed a palace; and as the entire structure resembled that of a tower, it contained also four other distinct towers at its four corners; whereof the others were but fifty cubits high; whereas that which lay upon the SOUTH-EAST CORNER was seventy cubits high, that from thence the whole temple might be viewed; but ON THE CORNER WHERE IT JOINED TO THE TWO CLOISTERS OF THE TEMPLE [i.e., the Temple area's north and west corner], 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; and in that tower were the guards of those three."

Guards would naturally have choosen the high ground for themselves. Not only is it easier to see what is going on, it is easier to defend.

Paul made a speech standing on the steps that went up from the Temple area on the south to the Fort Antonia area on the north. These steps were at the northwest corner of the Temple area, where the northern and western cloisters met. Steps were necessary, because the bedrock was higher on the northern side. In the southern area, underground arches had to be built to support the Temple, because the elevation of the bedrock fell away sharply.

If you look at the diagram below, it is easy to see that if the east-west wall dividing the Temple area from the Fort Antonia area ran just south of the Rock, the Golden Gate facing east and leading to the Mt. of Olives had to be in the Fort Antonia area.

Temple Mount with aquaduct and cisterns marked

As pictured, the aquaduct ran southeast, probably on beyond the Kas Fountain to the slot in the largest cistern, the one called the Great Sea. The aquaduct and the the largest cistern would have connected with the temple area. The priests opened a water outlet at the baseboard to let water flow across the floor where the altar was placed. They let it run until the blood was rinsed off the marble floor.

Also, the top of the two stairways running up from the southern wall would probably have been near the Temple. Agape

That was a brilliant answer to “heresy” that you gave. It is so easy to criticise. Shalom.

JPOST.COM REPORTS: The Jerusalem Municipality and the State of Israel have allocated NIS 36 million for a series of celebrations MARKING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REUNIFICATION OF JERUSALEM, city officials said Tuesday. The funding, which will go towards a wide array of city and nationwide CELEBRATIONS THAT WILL GET UNDER WAY IN MAY AND RUN FOR A WHOLE YEAR, includes NIS 21m. In city funding and at least NIS 15m. In state funding, Jerusalem Municipality Director-General Eitan Meir said. The celebrations will begin with special government and Knesset assemblies on May 13 in accordance with past resolutions by the Ministerial Committee on Symbols and Ceremonies and the government, Jerusalem Affairs Minster Ya'acov Edri said Tuesday at a city hall press conference announcing the planned events. "Jerusalem is not only an inseparable part of the Jewish nation, it is the basis of the existence of the Jewish nation," Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski said.

Israel's 59th Independence Day next month, which precedes Jerusalem Day, will be celebrated under the THEME "40 YEARS SINCE THE REUNIFICATION OF JERUSALEM," and all of the torch lighters at the official state ceremony this year will be Jerusalem residents, city officials said. The municipal events scheduled include a July 26 Israel Philharmonic concert conducted by Maestro Zubin Mehta, which will be broadcast on live screens throughout the city center, a week-long Israeli song festival in the city's Sacher Park starting May 15, A 10-DAY JERUSALEM CULTURAL FESTIVAL BEGINNING MAY 24 in which all the city's museums and cultural institutions will be open free of charge, and an all-night Jewish and Israeli music festival at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem on September 6.

EUROVISION AS WELL
Festivities around the world marking the anniversary will include an Israeli film festival in New York, a special "Unity with Jerusalem" show in Melbourne, a "PARADE FOR JERUSALEM" DOWN NEW YORK'S 5TH AVENUE, special shows in Prague, Buenos Aires, Panama, Moscow and Berlin, as well as a "Jerusalem Party" for participants of the Eurovision Song contest in Helsinki.

My reply

Thanks much. This is great. My guess is that the Lord wants to remind people that the 40 years is about up.

> > "A 10-DAY JERUSALEM CULTURAL FESTIVAL BEGINNING MAY 24"

Wow! This could take place on the Day of the Rapture. May 24 is Sivan 7, PENTECOST. If it happened at the time the Holy Spirit descended on the Church, it would be around 9 AM in Israel and still night here in California. They are 10 hours ahead of us. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: Pentecost Rapture in Isa. 18

There are 7 months from May 5 till Hannukah and 2520 days till First Fruits 2014...midpoint of the tribulation in Matson's book....the beginning day is 11-8-2010 to parallel the story of Noah...Tng's 1srt fruits numerics are the only logical conclusion which gives time for Ezekiel 38 to occure before May 5 to pick up dead bodies.

My reply

Take a look at Eze. 38:18-20. That war can only take place on the Day of God's Wrath. Every wall will fall in the worldwide earthquake. There won't be a building standing if every wall falls. The asteroid as big as a mountain will fall in the Mediterranean Sea (Rev. 8:8). The larger piece, called a star (Greek "aster") will destroy Babylon. The dead will lay around the Earth.

Eze. 38:18-20 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that MY FURY SHALL COME UP IN MY FACE. For in my jealousy and in the fire of MY WRATH have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and EVERY WALL WILL FALL to the ground."

Rev 16:17-21 shows that it takes place at the end of the shortened Tribulation. It says, "And THE SEVENTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL (i.e., of God's wrath) into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was A GREAT EARTHQUAKE, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE MEN WERE UPON THE EARTH, SO MIGHTY AN EARTHQUAKE, AND SO GREAT. And the great city (Jerusalem) was divided into three parts, and THE CITIES OF THE NATIONS FELL: AND GREAT BABYLON CAME IN REMEMBRANCE BEFORE GOD, TO GIVE UNTO HER THE CUP OF THE WINE OF THE FIERCENESS OF HIS WRATH. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (100 lbs.): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great."

Keep in mind that it only takes a rock seven tenths of a mile in diameter to destroy the whole planet if it hits dead center. The asteroids of Rev. 8:8 and 10 seem to come in obliquely, because fire will fall on Russia and the globe will be turned upside down. The destruction around the world could not be repaired in a couple of months.

Eze. 39:12,13 shows that the Jews will bury the dead for 7 months to cleanse the land for the glorious return of Christ. It says, "And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD."

That year will be a Hebrew Leap Year with the 13th month. That's the only way there could be 7 months between Tishri 1 and Nisan 1. I think Jesus will return on Nisan 1, the first day of the Regnal Year. Agape
