Thus saith YHWH, ‘The Heaven is my Throne, and the Earth is my footstool: where is the House that ye build unto me? and where is the place of My Rest?’ –Isaiah 66
If the Kerry Peace Initiative that is to formulate in April of 2014 will formalize the relationship between a newly created State of Palestine and the State of Israel, then the mutual recognition of the 2-State ‘solution’ to the Arab-Israeli Conflict might well stipulate that part of the agreement will be to allow for the rebuilding of the Temple of GOD. Based on sacred geometry and ley-lines, the Dome of the Rock does not need to be dismantled or altered in any form to accommodate the 3rd Temple. Based on the phi ratio proportions of the Temple Mount Platform presented in this illustration, it is strongly suggested that it would appear that the real location of the Holy of Holies is pinpointed at the place of the Dome of the Tablets or Spirits.
The accompanied chart illustrates 3 main points related to the 3rd Temple and the Ark of the Covenant. 1) Mathematically, the Temple Mount Platform is in an approximation to the phi ratio proportions from the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits), to the Dome of the Rock, to the Al Aqsa start of the building. 2) The Temple Mount Platform approximates the proportion to the measurement of the Ark of the Covenant itself. 3) The main structures of the Platform, the 3 ‘Domes’ mirror the 3 articles contained within the Ark of the Covenant Moses was instructed to build by the LORD GOD YHWH. The 3 articles contained in the Ark were the copy of the 10 Commandments or ‘tablets’, the Jar of Manna, and the almond Staff of Aaron that budded.
If a comparison to each is made, all the 3 items of the Ark correlate to the 3 structures on the Temple Mount as the illustration will show. If indeed the Holy of Holies corresponds to the Dome of the Tables (Spirits) there will be enough room to accommodate the 3rd Temple that might be part of the final and formal mutual recognition of the Palestinian and Israeli States. This will occur on the 66th year anniversary of Israel’s independence in 1948.
Dome of the Spirits (Tablets) Phi Ratio
If the phi ratio spiral is overlaid to both the Temple Mount Platform and the Ark of the Covenant from a top view perspective, there is almost an exact match. In terms of the Temple Mount Platform, the phi ratio spiral directly correlates to the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits). It is rather interesting that the Dome of the Tablets could very well correlate to the Holy of Holies as this specific place is where the Tablets rested within the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark contained the very Tablets of the Law of YHWH that Moses made.
These Tablets of the Law were a copy of the originals made by the LORD that Moses shattered upon the people during the Golden Calf incident at Mt. Sinai. What is most significant about this spot is that it was where the Shekhinah Glory appeared above the Mercy Seat. This Presence of YHWH transcended space and time at this place on Earth, piercing and bridging the dimensions of the Heavenly with the Earthy.
Ark of Covenant Type of Temple Mount Platform
The Ark of the Covenant depicted in the chart illustration is one that was conceptually arranged by Ron Wyatt upon his claim of being a first-hand eye-witness to its configuration during one of his archeological quests in the Old City. The dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant in inches are 52’’×31’’×31’’. Astonishingly, the width and length of the Temple Mount is a fractal of these numbers. The length of the Platform is 520 yards and the width is 310 yards. What these comparisons are also stipulating is that the whole Temple Mount Platform complex could be seen as one giant ‘Ark’ or throne or perhaps a footstool as is the case that often one puts up one’s feet on top of a chair sort of speak. This is where the verse in Isaiah 66 and others may have a new perspective.
A Metaphorical Comparison
To reiterate, the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant אָרוֹן הַבְּרִיתapproximates the dimensions of the Temple Mount Platform with an overlay of the phi ratio spiral. If this typology is consistent, then the 3 main articles contained within the Ark of the Covenant, could be seen as directly relating to the 3 main structures on the Platform. This is only a theological and metaphorical comparison.
1) DOME OF ‘Tablets’ (SPIRITS)
The Dome of the Tablets or also known as the Dome of the Spirits corresponds to the Tablets of Moses, the 10 Commandments. This is where the moral law of the GOD of the Universe was set down to govern the primary affairs between GOD and Mankind and amongst Mankind.
2) DOME OF ROCK
The Dome of the Rock corresponds to the Jar that contained Manna. GOD instructed Moses to take a sample of the ‘heavenly bread’ into the Ark as a witness of GOD’s miraculous provision during the Wilderness journey of the Israelites to the Promised Land. What is also miraculous is that the Manna endured and did not decompose as it did in the Wilderness. The Dome of the Rock is so named because of the Foundation Stone that protrudes out of Mt. Moriah. It is speculated that this is the place where Abraham attempted to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. Interestingly, the ‘rock’ is round like that of the Manna, presumably and the Dome itself is like that of a ‘jar’.
The almond Staff or Aaron can thus also allude to the ORION 3 star alignment. The 3 structures or ‘domes’ can also be corresponding to this heavenly alignment as other charts show entitled The Gates of Orion. The staff would have been part of the staff or a walking staff that could have been 27’’ in length, enough to use as a cane; assuming that the average height of men in that era was around 5 feet.
This length would also be able to fit inside the Ark. If the staff was that of a shepherd’s type for example, it most likely would have been longer and thus the staff in the Ark would have been a portion of it. It is also interesting that from the Al-Aqsa to the Dome is the longest span of distance between the 3 domes. It is also interesting that the nave, as the Al-Aqsa was actually a church first is only as long as it starts the ORION 3 star alignment configuration from that edge of the building, not the dome itself.
According to the conventional definition, it is a mathematical concept in one respect. Many call this mathematical and geometric relationship ‘the signature of GOD’. It is seen in all living things, plants, and hurricanes to galaxies or patterns of growth. The perfect human form or body is also in approximation to this ratio that is also called the Golden Mean, the Golden Section etc., used in architecture and art as well.
‘In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The figure on the right illustrates the geometric relationship.’
Messiah – Jesus A type of the Ark
According to the Book of Hebrews, the author’s main emphases is that Jesus Christ is the real and true essence of the types GOD used to instruct and teach Israel about who and what GOD was and is. Such parallels of the types included the Passover Lamb, the High Priest, the Temple itself, Moses, etc. What many Bible scholars have also alluded to is that the Ark of the Covenant is such a ‘type and shadow’ of the work and ministry of Jesus Christ. In essence, the Ark of the Covenant is a personification of Christ in the following ways described in Scripture.
1) Tablets = Law (DEATH)
‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.’ – Matthew 5:17
2) Manna = Bread (LIFE)
‘I am the Bread of Life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.’ – John 6:35
3) Staff = Resurrection (LIFE)
‘I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live’ … – John 11:25
Will a 3rd Temple be built?
Although the exact and correct location of the prior Temples of Solomon and Zechariah (Herods) are in general dispute, those that seek the New World Order and those ‘Masons’ that seek to build a Temple to their coming ‘Prince’, the Luciferians know exactly where the 3rd Temple is to be built.
No amount of Muslim protest either will prevent ‘time’ and sacred geometry from fulfilling the prophetic time-clock of the Temple Mount. The 3rd Temple will be built according to how some interpret the books of Daniel and Revelation. With or without Islamic protest, there is a current dilemma over the Temple Mount. Israel has total sovereignty over the entire Temple Mount since the 1967 Six-Day War but Moshe Dayan relinquished ‘administration’ over the site back to the Jerusalem Waqf وقفwhich only has deferred legitimacy given by the Prime Minister of Israel. Perhaps at this historic juncture of the 9-month April 2014 Kerry Peace Initiative the Prime Minister will exercise his sovereign right to permit the building of the 3rd Temple. Perhaps this issue of the 3rd Temple will come to the forefront of the treaty as part of the conditions for establishing a Palestinian State.
Astonishingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel clearly stated in his speech during the last American Israel Public Affairs Committee AIPAC meeting that he is prepared to recognize and accept a Palestinian State so long as the Palestinian State recognizes Israel. This mutual agreement that is a piece in Oslo Accord’s puzzle could thus pave the way for the 3rd Temple to be part of the bargaining chips and a condition for such a mutual political recognition. The cost will very well be the division of the Biblical land of Israel as the ancient ancestral lands of Judea and Samaria would be lost in compensation.
House of YHWH
If the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits) is the true location of the Holy of Holies, that will remain to be seen but it seems to be soon given the geo-political conditions that might well afford this time and place if the Kerry Peace Initiative is to be had. This theory of the Holy of Holies being at the Dome of the Tablets (Spirits) is just one of many ‘alternate’ theories of the Temple being somewhere else than where it will be. Some speculate and argue that it will be in Shiloh or over the Dome of the Rock, etc. Others speculate that it’s even south of the Al-Aqsa in the City of David.
In 1 Chronicles 22, it was David that bought the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite that is over the Dome of the Spirits/Tablets that was above the City of David on Mt. Moriah where the Temple Mount Platform is now. It was at that place and time that the Plaque was stayed for David having counted the fighting men of Israel, an explicit command by the LORD not to do. It was there at that threshing floor that the LORD instructed David to build an Altar. It is interesting that the Tabernacle of Moses is mentioned in that it was at Gibeon.
From that time, David instructed that the Tent of Moses be brought to Jerusalem and placed directly over this altar, this threshing floor of Araunah that later on he instructed Solomon to build the 1st Temple over it. David’s rationale was that it was a place of GOD demonstrating His mercy and sparing Jerusalem at the time and where GOD answered David’s prayer to stop the plague.
According to the Bible, the Temple was in keeping with this directive and purpose seen and recognized by King David. The Temple to YHWH was to be a ‘House of Prayer for All Nations’ – Isaiah 56:7 and where YHWH met with His nation, Israel and the world in general. It is also interesting that the threshing floor was used to separate the kernels for the wheat harvest. This could be alluding to a time or season of Pentecost. The Bible does say that spiritually speaking, now the Church is that Heavenly Temple, corporately made up of individual stones, or Believers that are being arranged by the LORD and building built up as a ‘spiritual house.
The Threshing of the Bride
The Bible declares that YHWH Himself has been building up the Body, the Bride into a ‘spiritual house’. With such a metaphor to consider, perhaps then if and when the 3rd Temple goes up at this same spot, it is also because the ‘spiritual house’ is complete and the Church will be taken as prepared sheaves into the real House of the LORD in Heaven as a result of the prophetic ‘threshing’ of the wheat over nearly 2000 years in the making.
According to the conventional definition of Threshing, it ‘is the process of loosening the edible part of cereal grain from the scaly, inedible chaff that surrounds it. It is the step in grain preparation after 1) harvesting and before 3) winnowing, which separates the loosened chaff from the grain. 2)Threshing does not remove the bran from the grain. Threshing may be done by beating the grain using a flail on a threshing floor.’
Many believe that the Rapture of the Church will be that ‘winnowing’ as the wheat is thrown up into the air and the chaff is blown away. The harvesting of souls has been currently under way since Pentecost. Due to persecution and trials over the centuries, the threshing of the Church has also accompanied the sorrowful history of the Church. Yet one day, the Church’s current state of ‘tribulation’ will end when the corporate winnowing will take place, i.e., the Rapture. It will be a time with the Saints are ‘thrown’ into the air to rendezvous with the LORD and separate the old corruptible body of sin and be clothed in the new body of life and incorruptibility and be ushered into the ‘barn’ or House of the LORD in the Heavenly Jerusalem. The following is a very simplified notion of this prophetic process.
1. Harvesting/redemption – a ‘cutting’ away from the world, a separation
2. Threshing/sanctification – a ‘beating’ to loosen from world, the kernel from the chaff
3. Winnowing/glorification – the ultimate separation done in the air
Many believe that this coming ‘winnowing’ or Rapture will take place during a corresponding Jewish Feast; many attribute the Rapture to occur on Rosh HaShana because ‘no man knows the day or the hour’…but this is not a Rapture verse, it is in the context of the LORD’ 2nd coming. The only ‘Feast’ of the 7 that the Church is directly and only associated with is Pentecost… a start and finish bracketed interval between the 1st 3 and the last 3 and associated with the wheat harvest.
What is interesting to consider though is that the 2 Blood Moons of the Tetrad of 2014-15 on the Passover dates of April 15, 2014 and April 4, 2015 do occur near the star Spica which means Wheat and associated with a harvest. Regardless, these are exiting times as the world grows darker and evil. May the Church be found ready for the coming prophetic corporate winnowing.
