Photographs which were recently taken in Hezekiah’s tunnel in the City of David in Jerusalem prove that under the steps leading to the tunnel through which the water from the Gihon Spring runs to the City of David there are more underground spaces which were not previously known. The researchers believe that these spaces were used as a Mikvah for the special purification of the High priest in the Second Temple era.
Hezekiah’s tunnel was dug around 2700 years ago. This monumental project was undertaken by one of the most righteous kings of Israel to lead the water from the Gihon Spring which is outside the walls of the walls of the Biblical city to the Pool of Siloam which is inside the City of David so that in times when the enemy besieged Jerusalem water would be available. The Tanach records this exciting Biblical event. Two groups were involved in the digging. One started from inside the city and the other from outside the city. Thanks to G–d’s miracle they met at exactly the same point. The tunnel was re-discovered during the Ottoman occupation of the holy land of Israel. The Turks also found the stone the King Hezekiah placed at the entrance of the tunnel on which the story and miracle of the digging was recorded. This stone was taken to Turkey and is today in the Turkish Museum in Istanbul. The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement is attempting to have this stone returned to Israel and if required will take all legal means needed to see that this occurs.
Up until today it had been thought that the water had streamed directly from the spring to the tunnel and then to the pool from where the water was drawn. These new photographs reveal that the water actually followed a long path from the spring to the tunnel. Inside these underground spaces were used, as we stated, as a Mikvah for the High Priest whose purification needed to be perfect and in a separate place.
David Be’eri, leader of the Jewish citizens of the City of David, shared that a diver went into the spaces with an underwater camera and that research will continue to find the total route that the water took from the Gihon Spring to the tunnel.
This is another exciting archaeological discovery around the Temple Mount which has a deep significance for the efforts and campaign for the Temple Mount and the rebuilding of the temple and the renewal of worship in the house of G–d by the priests and all the children of Israel. At the same time, it is another godly sign of the exciting time of redemption in which we are now living and a prophetic message from G–d Who very intensively brings His people, Israel, back step-by-step to His house, His city and to the land which He gave to Israel in an eternal covenant. In a very exciting way G–d proves to His people, Israel, and all the world that He is determined to fulfil His prophetic end-time promises to Israel to rebuild His house and his kingdom in Israel and then all over the world in this generation. Almost every day another exciting Biblical root of Israel and her relationship to G–d is discovered. These roots are the godly roots of the end-time godly tree of the State and land of Israel the fruits of which are going to bless all mankind exactly as He promised in His prophetic end-time Word. We are so privileged and bless to live at this godly time and to be a part of it in such a practical way and to see all these exciting and prophetic event with our own eyes. We are so thankful to G–d that He gave us the privilege to be born, live and act at this great godly time. Every day our eyes are open to see the next godly prophetic event. The biggest of these, the rebuilding of the temple and the coming of Mashiach ben David, is soon to come. Nobody can stop the G–d of Israel, the G–d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, from His march back to His house on Mt. Moriah, back to His city Jerusalem, back to His land and back to His people, Israel. We are so blessed to see the end-time fulfilment of G–d’s covenant with Israel.
This is a fascinating find at this particular time when the crucial issue in the entire Middle East conflict is ultimately about Jerusalem and specifically the Temple Mount area.
I told you recently that surely the rapture is imminent for danger is imminent for all of us. I have seen many miracles in my life, I have been blessed to be part of many miracles. Once when I was dying an angel came to me and I said, "You know they are killing me for his namesake, and he replied, "Yes, I know, but isn't he worth dying for?' I replied, "Oh, yes, and then instead of dying, I lived." That was in 1996.
Today my b-day, 2-12-2002, the Temple Mount Faithful has marched to the temple to make a circle around it to pray for David Ben Mashiach to come. I am certain he is hearing their prayers. These are they, who will except him even if it is Yeshua!
I think this person writing you wants you to be wrong, but he can not prove you wrong. We should pray that Yeshua touches him, for he is certainly searching. Yeshua promises we will find him if we search, so I think a little prayer is appropriate.
As far as Jesus not being Yeshua, I think the problem is the translation of the name. I think that Yeshua did not marry when he was here first because he being the Son of God , came with a plan and a mission which had to be fulfilled. I think his death only caused him to be with his Father for 2000 years which would certainly explain the white hair, radioactivity. But due to the fact that he has a wedding planned shortly, I dare say that this time he will be full of Joy.
We can only pray we escape the things to come, and that we are righteous enough to face him. Aren't we blessed that he is Judge not us, that he is understanding of our poor decision making in this life, and aren't we blessed that he stirs up that search in our hearts pulling us back to his heart the perfect love Teshuvah. He forgives but we have to repent. So all of Israel will be saved for they will repent even if it's at the 11th hour. Best wishes
Thanks. After having studied the Bible in as many versions as I could get my hands on and as hard as I could go for over 40 years, I am so secure in my faith, his jabs don't matter. He is just revealing the fact that he really can't answer Prov. 30:4's "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?" Since he doesn't know how to answer that, he tries to put up a smoke screen to obscure that fact.
I don't mind what he says about me. I just want to give him the chance to see the truth and be saved before he dies. We only get one lifetime to decide....I wish he could stop and think rationally. If he doesn't accept Yeshua, he will at least know that he had a chance when he stands before Yeshua at the judgment. The truth was presented to him. John 5:22 goes well with Prov. 30:4. It says, the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son."
> > I am a Messianic Jew believing in Yeshua
Praise the Lord. May He bless you in every way. You have the best of two worlds. Rom. 3:1,2 says, "What advantage then hath the Jew?...Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God." Yeshua was a Jew. The apostles were all Jews. Most of the prophets were Jews. We are all descended from Noah, you from his son Shem, me from his son Japheth. Noah was not a Jew. God chose the line of Shem to bring forth the Saviour of the whole world. Within 2 years of Noah's death, Abraham was born, of whom came the Israelites/Jews. He came into the land of Canaan/Israel when he was 75. All that's a precious heritage, very special.
> > I think it clear that once Yeshua appears to rescue them because of their last stand, that they will see him clearly, as the pierced son, the first-born.
That is certain. Isa. 66:8 shows that all Israel will be saved in a day. I just wish that more of them could, like you, have a part in the heavenly city of God. You are in good company. Heb. 11:13-16 shows that Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham and Sarah will be there. It says, "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out (Israel), they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city" ("new Jerusalem," Rev. 3:12).
> > Once when I was dying an angel came to me and I said, "You know they are killing me for his namesake, and he replied, "Yes, I know, but isn't he worth dieing for?' I replied, "Oh, yes, and then instead of dying, I lived."
That's neat. You lived to give your testimony to help others believe. God is using you to reach people that will listen to you because you are Jewish. They know that you understand, and that you made your choice against a certain background of knowledge that they understand. That carries more weight in their eyes.
I noticed that you called the angel "he." That agrees with Scripture.
> > Today my b-day, 2-12-2002
Happy birthday. Just look at all those 2s in the date. Yeshua is 2nd in the Godhead--the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mt. 28:19 says, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
Here are some things I wish Rich could understand. Act 2:36 says, "let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, BOTH LORD AND CHRIST." That agrees with De. 6:4. It says, "Hear, O Israel: The LORD (YHVH) our God (Elohim) is one (echad, united) LORD (YHVH)." Act 20:21 says, "Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks (Gentiles), repentance toward God, and faith toward our LORD Jesus CHRIST. "
BTW, "echad" appears in a verse that applies today." 2Sa 7:23 says, "WHAT ONE (ECHAD, UNITED) NATION (THE UNITED STATES) in the earth is like thy people, even LIKE ISRAEL, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for YOU (ISRAEL) great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people."
Psa 110:1 says, "A Psalm of David. The LORD (YHVH) said unto my Lord (Adonai), Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool." Yeshua posed some more important questions in Mat 22:41-45 that tie in with Psa. 110:1. He said, "While the Pharisees were gathered together...WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST? WHOSE SON IS HE? They say unto him, The Son of David (half right). He saith unto them, HOW THEN DOTH DAVID IN SPIRIT CALL HIM LORD, SAYING, THE LORD SAID UNTO MY LORD, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? IF DAVID THEN CALL HIM LORD, HOW IS HE HIS SON?"
Rev. 22 16, in the last book of the Bible, Yeshua/Jesus gives people one last chance to understand. He says, "I Jesus have sent mine angel (the same angel of the LORD that talked to Abraham) to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root (YHVH king of Israel) AND the offspring of David" (YHVH of hosts).
Isa. 44:6 ties in. It says, "Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first (YHVH King of Israel), AND I am the last (YHVH of hosts, the Redeemer); and beside me there is no God." II Cor. 5:19 explains, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself."
> > I think this person writing you wants you to be wrong, but he can not prove you wrong. We should pray that Yeshua touches him, for he is certainly searching.
Amen to that. I have and will pray for him. I think as in Eze 18:31: "Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for WHY WILL YE DIE, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL?"
> > He forgives but we have to repent. So all of Israel will be saved for they will repent even if it's at the 11th hour.
You are so right. When they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky and see endtime prophecies coming true, they will finally know the truth and be saved in a day. But even so, there will be some in Heaven and the rest on Earth. If we can reach some in time, they, like Abraham, can elect to live in the heavenly New Jerusalem. Since Abraham now chooses New Jerusalem, we can be certain that it is the better choice.
I would sure like to meet you and give you a big hug when we get there. Shalom and agape
I believe there will be more than one rapture. I also believe there will be those pulled from the fire, "raptured" as they believe. It is all in what you believe. If you believe in miracles they can and will happen, if you don't believe you will not see them nor recognize them, For miracles are of God's realm.
Trusting to see you there.
Time is short, we don't have much time but for prayer. In Yeshuah Rauch Ha Kodesh, Malek, Ha Mahshiach
I just happened to think about this. Barbara Richmond said a few years back that there were 40 Rabbis in Israel that knew that Yeshua is the Mashiach. If they are caught up in the Rapture, there will be fertile ground for Moses and Elijah's prophecies among those that knew them. That could be 40 congregations plus their friends. The coming of God's two witnesses sure seems to be soon too.
> > I don't believe anyone can say who will and who will not be raptured. I think only Yeshua knows that
You are right. He is the judge. James 5:9 says, "Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door." This is the "open door" set before the Philadelphian (meaning brotherly love) church (ecclesia, called out ones) in Rev. 8:8. This is the door of heaven that will be open at the Rapture.
> > I also believe that the Church has not replaced the Jews, as in boast not against the root.
I agree. Every promise made to Israel will come true for literal Israel.
> > None of us can decide who he saves, only he can! We can only hope and at this point in time, I think we should beg.
Luke 21:36 says that we should pray that we will be accounted worthy to escape. I John 1:9 will get us on even keel. Repentance is important to all God's children. In Mat 23:37, Yeshua said, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" We can all profit by repenting of our sins.
> > I believe there will be more than one rapture. I also believe there will be those pulled from the fire, "raptured" as they believe.
Me too. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego were saved from the fiery furnace to demonstrate it for us. The furnace was heated 7 times normal. That sure suggests the 70th week of Daniel 9:27. A "time" can stand for a year (Rev. 12:6,14). Lot being pulled out of Sodom on the same day it was destroyed by fire and brimstone (Luke 17:29) tells the story too. Blessings and agape
I know you believe that there will be a terrible meteor "attack" on Babylon and on the ocean etc. For the most part, I also believe you are very right. One of the things I was thinking about was the two scripture verses in Matthew:
Matt 17:20: So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. NKJV
Matt 21:21-22: So Jesus answered and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." NKJV
Could it be, that Jesus was telling us that, either instead of a meteorite or possibly in addition to a meteorite, that one of His end-time prophets would command a mountain to be removed into the sea and it would happen? this, I would think would look basically the same as a meteor impact.
I find iteresting that Jesus would mention this twice in Matthew if it were not going to actually happen. Since it hasn't happened yet, this could be by the hand of one of the two witnesses in Revelation.
Anyway, would appreciate your thoughts and comments on it. Always enjoy your thoughts and especially your patience with the people who need to meet Jesus that attack you when actually what they are attacking is God and His word. Sincerely
I think that the curse of Zech. 5:1-4 is a binary asteroid, a shard of Satan's planet Rahab that was split apart. Zechariah saw it in the sky. Also, it orbits over the face of the Earth. Zech. 5:.3 says, "This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth."
Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD (Christ, Isa. 52:10; Isa. 53:1); awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (lit., split) Rahab, and wounded the dragon (Satan)?"
Among the prayers of the saints presented in Rev. 5:8 would be many prayers for the peace of Jerusalem. The mountain must hit the Mediterranean Sea to end the Gog and Magog war against Israel. Only after that will Jerusalem have enduring peace.
Isa. 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon) and whom hast thou here (theSatan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a ROCK (the asteroid Wormwood, Rev. 8:11)? Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country Iraq): there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."
In Zech. 5, we find out that the asteroid is twice as long as wide. It probably breaks apart at the Roche Limit, 11,000 miles out. The smaller mountain sized piece is what will hit the Sea. The piece called a star (aster, star, asteroid, or burning meteor) will destroy Babylon. Agape
Hope to have the rest uploaded soon. I don't know how to add a search engine. It would be nice for me too. I lose track of what is where quickly. Agape
Are such events in line with Christian or Jewish festivals as some people predict they are?
many thanks on your excellent website, I'm afraid I'm a bit pushed for time to delve into it on a deeper scale
love in Yeshua
I'd like to know all these things too. I go to Your Sky, set it for Jerusalem and search for the sky on certain dates. On May 18, 2002 (Pentecost) there is a massing of heavenly bodies. There are 4 planets, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Mercury and the Sun in Taurus. Jupiter is nearby in Gemini. The Moon is in Cancer. These planets have been orbiting the Sun a long time, so I would think this would be cyclic, but I don't know the cycle.
Yours in Yeshua, Shalom and Agape

The fourth seal is about the Satan-possessed False Prophet, so it falls Mid-Trib.
I expect the 2nd Rapture, which includes the 144,000, to take place before noon on the Feast of Trumpets that begins the Millennium. At the 1st trumpet, a globe-shaped censer full of fire is cast into the Earth. It symbolizes the asteroids impacting Earth. At the 2nd trumpet, the burning mountain falls into the Mediterranean Sea at noon. It stops Gog's army that is attacking Israel. The 3rd trumpet sounds at noon too, so the first 3 trumpets sound at just about the same time. This shows that all these trumpets sound quickly, I think on the same day, on the Day of God's Wrath. The 2nd asteroid (Wormwood) destroys Babylon. Here are a few verses, so you can see why I think this way.
Zep 2:2-5: "Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be HID (by being caught up to Heaven in the Pre-Trib Rapture or the Pre-Wrath Rapture before noon this day) in the DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the NOON DAY, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant."
Job 20:23 When he (the wicked one, the False Prophet) is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the FURY OF HIS WRATH upon him, and shall rain it upon him WHILE HE IS EATING. Psa 91:5-9: Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the DESTRUCTION THAT WASTETH AT NOONDAY. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation." Both Raptures have already caught up all the saints.
Amos 8:9,10: "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause THE SUN TO GO DOWN AT NOON, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: And I WILL TURN YOUR FEASTS (IT'S THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS) INTO MOURNING, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
What starts with the trumpets, like quick drum beats, is terrible devastation. However, over more time, the destruction is even worse. The bowl judgments are the results over more time. For instance, when the "great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea" when the 2nd trumpet sounded in Rev. 8:8,9, "the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died." When the 2nd bowl of God's Wrath is poured out, we see that by this time, "every living soul died in the sea" (Rev. 16:3).
Rev. 18:21: "a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
