Default The Temple and the Jerusalem Ley Line

Some connections in sacred geometry of Jerusalem's holy sites: dome of the rock, rock of golgotha, the wailing wall, etc. and how they follow the Jerusalem ley line and form a pentagram.

Here is an article on the suspected temple site and the proposal for a "Tabernacle of Peace" which would allegedly appeal to Jews and Muslims alike. Also shows the Jerusalem ley line, and inclusion of sacred geometry in regards to key locations of the area: Dome of the Rock, Golgotha, Israel Parliament, etc.



Quote:
The end of the millenium brings a heightened global interest in visions of redemption and the end of days. The more these visions are focalized in their 'natural place', that is the Holy Land (to be more exact Jerusalem), its 'main actor' or at least the place of its central unfolding, is the temple in Jerusalem. However, the temple and her future are still clouded in mystery and confusion- as is written, 'The Lord said to dwell (his sanctuary) in deep mist' (I Kings 8:12). Most people surmise that the temple of Israel and Judah was situated on the site of the Dome of the Rock and that to rebuild it, the dome would have to be removed. The Muslims have sanctified the Temple Mount and any intention, Jewish or Christian that encourages the building of the temple is looked upon as a threat. The outcome is that most people connect the rebuilding of the temple to visions of apocalypse, and try to distance the subject from their awareness. In his article 'Holy Apocalypse Now' ('Hayim Aherim' # 25, October 98) Eli Shai enumerates some of the fears surrounding the temple. To my mind, the hands of the clock that are inevitably approaching the magical date '2000' press us to relate to it in a positive and creative way.

So today I bring you good tidings. The temple- the 'third house' of the prophetic vision- has already come revealed in Jerusalem. And with a little effort and modest expense (far less than the price of one F16 fighter jet) it is possible to operate it by the year 2000.

From my own perspective, the sparks of this discovery were implied in a revelation I experienced twenty-five years ago while reading John Michell's book 'The View Over Atlantis'. The book begins with the discovery of an ancient temple in Avebury, England (that remained unrecognized despite its presence for thousands of years, its grand scale defying the limited perception of men), and culminates in the vision of the New Jerusalem from Heaven as related in the 'Revelation of John', the definitive scenario of Christian 'End of Days' prophecies, that seals the New Testament.

According to Michell, the numbers and measures of the temple-city that appear in John's Revelation (that also intrigued Sir Isaac Newton no less than the research that brought him fame) contain the essence of all the ancient systems of measurement. The appearance of the Heavenly Jerusalem was to be the realization of all that was alluded to in the ancient temples, such as Avebury, Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid of Egypt
.

Eventually I became acquainted with John Michell and we became true friends. And so it happened that he accepted my invitations to visit Jerusalem. Already on his second visit he had come to various discoveries, although it was his third visit this past February that led to an actual breakthrough.

Here I give the stage to John Michell who, on his last sojourn here, had the peak experience of realizing his life's work of thirty years, in which he wrote over twenty books on the most extraordinary topics - from the flying saucers vision, to the secrets of prehistoric temples, to the exposure of the aristocratic network that wrote of all Shakespeare's plays. By way of his research, John had become a world authority on sacred geometry, the ancient units of measurement and the symbolic implications of what was measured by them. John brought the only real evidence for the existence of an ancient, worldwide civilization (generally known as 'Atlantis' by those interested in such matters). He found that the various measuring units that facilitated the building of the temples of old all over the world are coherent, related by clear and simple numerical relationships, much like the numerical relationships between musical notes studied by the disciples of Pythagoras and Plato. The English foot is the last remnant of this ancient universal system, whereas the meter has no intrinsic bearing on it.
The outcome of this, for example, is that a contemporary scientist, trained upon the metric system as part of his basic premise, is almost completely blind to the physical evidence that lies at his feet, whereas the fringe person is able to discern it.
John received the initial guidelines for his research in Jerusalem from professor Asher Kaufman who dedicated years investigating the historical site of the Temple. Kaufman's conclusion is that neither the Temple of Solomon nor Herod's Temple stood where the Dome of the Rock stands today, which is the accepted premise, but on the line that passes from Mt. Scopus, the place where the red heifer was sacrificed, through the (now closed) Golden Gate to the Foundation Stone which lies under the Dome of the Spirits (or the Dome of the Tablets as it is sometimes called) some one hundred meters north by northwest of the Dome of the Rock. This, to Kaufman's claim, is the original site of the Temple. (A direct result of Kauffman's theories is that to build an actual replica of the second temple one could circumvent the Dome of the Rock – information that can diminish tension between Jews and Muslims on the Temple Mount.)
John continued Kaufman's line (he calls it The Jerusalem Ley Line) and found that it runs exactly from east to west and continues on to the Rock of Golgotha - the site where Jesus was crucified, nowadays contained as a chapel within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. His eyes were then carried to the angle of streets that fork out from Adrian's Pillar at Damascus Gate in the Old City. Referring to maps of the old Roman City, built after the destruction of the second temple, he discovered a clear and recurrent angle - of 36 degrees - delineating a pentagram (an ancient esoteric symbol) in the underlying plan. The placement of the pentagram on the Ley line of the Temple brought him to some new insights in sacred geometry, and to the realization that the site of Rock of Golgotha is an integral part of a complete and harmonious system that includes the structures on the Temple Mount.
On this visit, John intended to continue investigating these relationships. I encouraged him with a distinct sense that the discoveries he had come to were but the scaffolding for a simpler and more precise structure (without knowing what it might be). I also proposed to him a serious consideration of the studies of the architect Tuviah Sagiv, who introduces still another alternative to the first and second Temple sites. Within a fortnight John was thankful to me for both these suggestions. However, before I tell of his discoveries, let me bring to the stage Tuviah Sagiv.
I was fortunate to meet Tuviah many years ago while working as his tutor on the Faculty of Architecture at the Israel Institute of Technology. Already in his student days his talent for architecture was evident, and he was outstanding for his sharp and critical mind that refused to take things at face value. Now I discovered, that Tuviah has been publishing regularly in the past decade well-argued and exact discoveries that could rock the foundation of the accepted archeological and religious premises. Amongst other things, Tuviah Sagiv (of national religious leanings) contends that the present Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron is really the remains of an Edomite temple from the pre-Hashmonean period (while the accepted archeological view of the cave is as a Herodian structure), and that the original cave is to be found on a site less prone to Jewish-Muslim conflict. Sagiv also contends that the Western Wall was not built by the Jews, but rather was part of a pagan temple built by Adrian on the ruins of the Jewish one. The Dome of the Rock, according to Sagiv's multiple and penetrating analysis, is a remnant of that temple dedicated to Jupiter, and the holy rock within had already been sanctified, even before the time of Solomon, to the Sidonian goddess Ashtoret (the Asherah of the Canaanites and the Venus of Rome). His prevailing argument, and perhaps his most important one, is that the original Temple was not built on the site of the Dome of the Rock, but was placed considerably lower, between the Dome and the mosque of Al-Aksa. In light of this argument it is most probable that many of the original temple walls are still intact under the Temple Mount, across from the Western Wall. (Incidentally, the Lubavitch Hassidim also hold this view, for reasons known only to their late master).
John continued his investigations of the temple Ley line.
In Kaufman's diagrams the temple is viewed as a rectangle of 1:2.4. Intuitively, John had drawn this rectangle even before he knew of Kaufman's work, only six times larger. He was happy to learn that an enlargement exactly like this one appears in the temple revelation of Ezekiel. Differing from the measurements of Solomon's temple, described in the scripture by unit measures of cubit, or amah (1.728 feet), Ezekiel's is multiplied by six: "and in the man's hand a measuring stick (of) six amot for each amah" (Ezekiel 40,5). (Likewise, the archeologist Magen Broshi, director of the 'Shrine of the Book' at the Israel Museum, has shown that the visionary temple described in the Dead Sea scrolls is of the same giant proportions as that of Ezekiel's temple). Michell placed this giant rectangle on the Ley line of the known temple, enlarged and spreading westward, and found the Rock of Golgotha at a site that parallels the place of the Foundation Stone within the temple of Solomon.
Now John started to contemplate this pattern more penetratingly. The first discovery was that the axis of the temple according to Sagiv's argument also relates to this pattern - it forms the southern side of the rectangle, a line parallel to the main temple axis and situated 360 temple cubits south of it. Moreover: this line is not arbitrary, but is clearly marked on the ground, so that its continuation east at the valley of Kidron touches the most noticeable monument there, the one known as "Absalom's tomb", whereas its western edge butts the northern corner of the "Tower of David" citadel by the Jaffa Gate.
There was already a sense of an impending revelation. But it was when John started to bring in his own expertise of the ancient measuring units that the really astounding discoveries started to crowd in:
The distance between the sides and the central axis of the big rectangle was 360 temple cubits, each cubit of 1.728 English feet. This number has inherent significance: 1728 is 12 cubes (12x12x12). The width of the rectangle is therefore 720 temple cubits and its length (by a ratio of 1:2.4) is exactly 1728 temple cubits. The Western edge of the rectangle is situated between the Tower of David and a prominent point at the north part of the Western city wall, its Eastern edge congruent with the Eastern wall of the Temple mount and the Old City, and its central axis passes through the (closed) Gate of Mercy. The pattern of the rectangle started to look more and more meaningful when John came to examine the location of the Foundation Stone (according to Kaufman) and the Rock of Golgotha - and here is where the main discovery was made.
The two holy rocks, at Golgotha and at the Dome of the Spirits, are found to be situated exactly at the two parallel foci of the rectangle. Namely: if we divide the large rectangle of the ratio of 1:2.4 into two equal rectangles of the ratio 1:1.2, we find that the two rocks stand exactly at the two centers of these equal rectangles.
The two stones are situated along the main East-West axis of the larger temple, exactly 864 temple cubits from each other.
In his book "The Dimensions of Paradise" John Michell starts the discussion of "Symbolic number" with a couple of pages about the number 864. This number is, for example, the surface area of a cube whose edges are all 12 units, or the volume of an altar of 12 cubits each side and its height (above ground) 6 cubits. John has shown how this number appears in the gematria of the Greek letters used to describe the temple in the New Testament. He summarizes: "In the language of symbolic number 864 clearly pertains to a center of radiant energy, the sun in the solar system, Jerusalem on earth, the inner sanctuary of the temple, the altar within it and the corner stone upon which the whole sacred edifice is founded. Its characteristic form is the cube of the New Jerusalem with 12 units to a side and volume of twice 864 cubic units. That is the foundation rock, placed at the point of union between heaven and earth, where the rays of the sun penetrate the realm of the earth spirit….".
And now suddenly this number appeared, not out of theoretical calculations and gematria combinations, but as the actual and most important measure in the outline of the hidden temple. The distance was measured with the greatest possible accuracy upon a 1:2,500 scale map of the Israel ordinance survey. Someone has already been there, perhaps already before King Solomon, and marked these two rocks as foundation points for two shrines, which together comprise a complex super-temple.
At this point the mysterious possibilities started to gyre and the vicissitudes of history to fall into order. What is happening here? The pattern laid by the Romans, ostensibly in order to wipe out the remnant of the Jewish temple, somehow came to create a harmony with it. The mother of Constantine, the Roman emperor who converted to Christianity, chose as the site for the cult of Jesus the very rock that had been dedicated to an ancient pagan rite, which was exactly opposite the place below the Dome of the Spirits. The Moslems came and built in opposition to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre their shrines of El-Aksa and the Dome of the Rock - exactly within the alignments of the Temple of Jupiter at Elia Capitolina. Four inimical civilizations have competed over the site of the temple of Jerusalem, and each one added to it a further aspect. The Jewish temple turned eastwards. The Roman temple turned its axis 90 degrees to the North. The Christians conquered Rome from the inside and brought a shift of the central axis in another 90 degrees Westward - towards their future temple in Rome. They built their shrine on the western extension of the ley line, on the ruins of an ancient pagan temple. Then when the hand of Islam prevailed - the ruined structures on the Temple Mount were rebuilt, and the axis was shifted another 90 degrees, southward, to the schematic (geographically inaccurate) direction of their chief shrine at Mecca. How the Great wheel turns!
And here we stand now, in the new State of Israel, charting the pattern of the temple on an East-West axis, and suddenly this axis extends even further. It extends to the site of the Knesset (Israel's parliament), whose designers were most likely unaware of their building within the pattern of the temple.
Moved to the depth of his being John wrote in his summary that he can see no explanation to this consistency but in the realm of the miraculous - that Providence must have guided the different planners, and that all their contradictory intentions were somehow guided by an unseen hand toward one unified aim, that the time for its revelation could not come before our time. It is at the present time that the new temple is being revealed, not as a willful human act but through hidden providence.
It would have been enough to give thanks to the revealer of mysteries and end here, but the process of revelation continued. I invited Tuvia Sagiv to make his acquaintance with John Michell and his discoveries. Within a minute of their meeting they were deep into it. No words of courtesy were yet exchanged - and they were into new discoveries: The perfect pentagram drawn from the corner of the Damascus Gate had reaffirmed what was testified by the imperfect pentagon of the underground rock whose visible edge is the rock at the Dome of the Rock. Pivotal points of the two different systems were found to coincide and explained by complementary deductions. Sagiv (who believes, as noted, that the temple was situated at another place) proposed the site that was posited by Kaufman as that of the Jewish Temple, as a site of a real temple built by King Solomon, but for another deity. And here, suggested Sagiv, is perhaps revealed the most amazing story - about the full extent of Solomon's Temple.
The Bible records - and we generally try to avoid it - that the temple Solomon built for the God of Israel was not his sole enterprise in that realm. After seven years of work on the temple, King Solomon continued another thirteen years building his house and then "the house of the forest of Lebanon" (I Kings 7:2), which was quite larger than the first temple. Was it just a palace for his personal glory? The scriptures admit what Jewish history has always found difficult to accept: that Solomon also built temples to Kemosh, Molekh and the gods of his foreign wives, in Jerusalem (I Kings 11:4-8). In the sequel, the Book of Kings tells that King Josiah had demolished the temples that Solomon built (II Kings 23:11-13) to Kemosh, Milkom and Ashtoret.
A new possibility arises. Solomon-Shlomoh, the wisest of all people, had already planned and set up the whole system of shrines that would come to serve the four civilizations ruling in Jerusalem during the next three thousand years, each building its own temple on one of the components that he had already set up. We now therefore arrive at an almost complete system. Almost the whole area of the Old City encompasses the overall temple, and the worship in the whole (Shalem) temple, The Temple of Solomon (Mikdash Shlomoh) can start peacefully (b'Shalom) already tomorrow. This revelation changes our relation to the temple. It is possible to regard the whole walled Old City of Jerusalem as "The Temple of Solomon" - the Temple of Wisdom, the Temple of Reconciliation (hashlamah) between the religions, between the sciences and the arts, and among all the tribes of humankind.
Epilogue: The enchanting conversation, which started at the Academy of Jerusalem Chambers which overlook the Dome of the Rock and is situated exactly on the southern ley line of the temple, has been continuing in a veritable process of ingathering of revelations (Kibbutz Giluyim). We have come to a far-reaching understanding regarding the Dome of the Rock and the possibility of introducing complementary functions, which might seem appropriate even for its Moslem custodians. An outline is forming of an enormous "Tabernacle of Peace", lightweight and inexpensive, that will mark the place of the whole giant temple we discussed, and shelter it. In parallel, we are elucidating appropriate rituals for the pilgrims who would seek the shrine of the Temple of wisdom of Solomon - such as the games of the knights who seek wisdom and peace-making (see my article on "The Poor Knights of the Temple of Solomon" in Hayim Aherim 25) which could take place under that tabernacle/canopy and in the streets of Jerusalem for all the pilgrims of Jerusalem 2000. In practice, the whole Old city could function as The Temple of Peace-making - The Yeru-Shalem Universal Temple (YeShUT). We have drawn a practical plan for the virtual version of this YeShUT.

Oh my god... the fact that civilization after civilization has been conquering this area and building their temples at 90 degree angles to the layout in an East, North, West and South pattern is really too much.

It makes it way too clear that all of these supposedly separate civilizations and religions were usurped or under the control of some other architect.

Really, what business do human beings have squabbling over the same territory generation after generation, and then building temples in (supposedly) unrelated religions in that kind of pattern?

Kind of sickening. Human beings don't think like this. This is ritualistic draconian manipulation that goes on over many generations - beyond the attention span of any one generation.

Babylon at work.

Not only do they build pentagrams in our capitals, they had one laid out in the "holiest place on Earth"?

Default the wailing wall



Quote:
The "Wailing Wall," located in Jerusalem, is considered by both Jews and Muslims as a significant and holy site. In the upper-middle portion of this photo you can just see a bit of the Dome of the Rock, one of the holiest sites for Muslims. This helps show just how close Muslims and Jews are when they are worshipping in Jerusalem. The size of the people here also provides context for how large the wall still is - and it's just a small portion of what was once here.

For the Jews, it is one of the last remaining portions of the ancient Temple of Solomon (an outer wall, in fact). The original length is estimated to have been around 485 meters; today what remains is just 60 meters long. The largest stone is 45 feet long, 15 feet deep, 15 feet high, and has an estimated weight of more than one million pounds.

No one knows when it the Jewish tradition of offering prayers there, but it is believed that this portion of the Temple was not destroyed because the Shekhinah (divine presence) continues to reside there. Thus, praying there is like praying directly to God through the wall. Originally called simply the Western Wall, it acquired the name Wailing Wall because of the nature of the prayers said there. In addition to spoken prayers, it is also common for prayers to be written on slips are paper (kvitlach) which are slipped into the cracks.

There is a large plaza here open 24 hours a day. In the middle is a fence (mechitza) separating men from women - Orthodox Jewish men don't believe that it is acceptable to pray right alongside women. Men, of course, are given the much larger area for prayers.

For Muslims, it is not only part of the huge platform which forms the foundation of the Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, but it is also believed to be the gate through which Muhammad was carried by a mythical creature known as the Buraq when he arrived at Jerusalem for his ascent to heaven (miraj).

Control of the Wailing Wall is a contentious issue between Jews and Muslims in Jerusalem. When that portion of Jerusalem was under Arab control, it was difficult for Jews to visit the Wailing Wall to pray. Now that it is under Israeli control, both Muslims and Jews have access. However, there are many Jews who regard the reconstruction of Solomon's Temple as a primary goal and this would require the destruction of the mosques above.

Default dome of the rock





The Dome of the Rock is not a mosque, but a Muslim shrine. Like the Ka'ba in Mecca, it is built over a sacred stone. This stone is believed to be the place from which the Prophet Muhammad ascended into heaven during his Night Journey to heaven.

The Dome of the Rock is the oldest Islamic monument that stands today and certainly one of the most beautiful. It also boasts the oldest surviving mihrab (niche indicating the direction of Mecca) in the world.

History

The sacred rock over which the Dome of the Rock is built was considered holy before the arrival of Islam. Jews believed, and still believe, the rock to be the very place where Abraham prepared to sacrifice Isaac (an event which Muslims place in Mecca). In addition, the Dome of the Rock (or the adjacent Dome of the Chain) is believed by many to stand directly over the site of the Holy of Holies of both Solomon's Temple and Herod's Temple.

The Dome of the Rock was built by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik from 688 to 691 AD. It was not intended to be a mosque, but a shrine for pilgrims. According to tradition, the Dome of the Rock was built to commemorate Muhammad's ascension into heaven after his night journey to Jerusalem (Qur'an 17). But there seems to have been more to it than this, since the Dome of the Ascension was later built nearby.

Actually, according to the Oxford Archaeological Guide to the Holy Land, "Abd al-Malik's purpose was more complex and subtle." He wished to erect a beautiful Muslim building that could compete with the majestic churches of Christendom and would be a symbolic statement to both Jews and Christians of the superiority of the new faith of Islam. "His building spoke to Jews by its location, to Christians by its interior decoration." [1]

In the 10th century, the Jerusalem visitor Mukaddasi wrote of the magnificent structure:

At dawn, when the light of the sun first strikes the dome and the drum catches the rays, then is this edifice a marvellous sight to behold, and one such than in all of Islam I have not seen the equal; neither have I heard tell of anything built in pagan times that could rival in grace this Dome of the Rock. [2]
By the 11th century, several legends had developed concerning the Dome of the Rock and its sacred stone, including the following:

They say that on the night of his Ascension into Heaven the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, prayed first at the Dome of the Rock, laying his hand upon the Rock. As he went out, the Rock, to do him honor, rose up, but he laid his hand on it to keep it in its place and firmly fixed it there. But by reason of this rising up, it is even to this present day partly detached from the ground beneath. [3]
In the Middle Ages, Christians and Muslims both believed the dome to be the biblical Temple of Solomon. The Knights Templar made their headquarters there during the Crusades and later patterned their churches after its design. [4]

The exterior mosaics that once adorned the Dome of the Rock suffered from exposure to Jerusalem winters. They were repaired in the Mamluk period, and then completely replaced with tiles by Sulieman the Magnificent in 1545. At the same time, he created the parapet wall with its intricate inscription by filling up the thirteen small arches that originally topped each facade. The windows of the Dome of the Rock date from this period as well. The tiling was completely replaced in the last major restoration in 1956-62.

What to See

The extraordinary visual impact of the Dome of the Rock is in part due to the mathematical rhythm of its proportions. All the critical dimensions are related to the center circle that surrounds the sacred stone. For example, each outer wall is 67 feet long, which is exactly the dome's diameter and exactly its height from the base of the drum.

The same principles were used in Byzantine churches of Italy, Syria, and Palestine, but none compare to the integration of plan and elevation seen in the Dome of the Rock.

The great golden dome that crowns the Dome of the Rock was originally made of gold, but was replaced with copper and then aluminum. The aluminum is now covered with gold leaf, a donation from the late King Hussein of Jordan. [6]

The dome is topped by a full moon decoration which evokes the familiar crescent moon symbol of Islam. It is aligned so that if you could look through it, you would be looking straight towards Mecca.

The beautiful multicolored Turkish tiles that adorn the shrine's exterior are faithful copies of the Persian tiles that Suleiman the Magnificent added in 1545 to replace the damaged originals. The lower half of the exterior is white marble.

The Arabic inscription around the octagonal part of the Dome of the Rock are verses from the Qur'an. The inscription dates from the renovation under Suleiman. The tiled area just below the golden dome is the drum. Its glazed tiles were made in Turkey, and its Arabic inscription tells of the Night Journey of Muhammad as described in the Qur'an (surah 17).

Inside the shrine, an arched wall called the octagonal arcade or inner octagon follows the exterior shape. An open space between this and the central circle forms the inner ambulatory around the Rock, carpeted in lush red. The area between the inner octagon and outer octogan (exterior wall) forms a smaller, outer ambulatory, carpeted in green. The two ambulatories recall the ritual circular movement of pilgrims around the Ka'ba in Mecca.

The cupola, the interior of the great golden dome, features elaborate floral decorations in red and gold, as well as various inscriptions. The main inscription in the cupola commemorates Saladin, who sponsored extenstive restoration work on the building.

The mosaics of the interior feature both realistic and stylized representations of vegetation and related themes (Muslim law forbids the representation of living beings in art). The mosaics evoke an exotic garden, perhaps the gardens of Paradise. Rich jewelry is also depicted in abundance, including breastplates, necklaces, and a Persian crown with features gathered at the base. The caliph Omar had conquered Persia in 637, and the mosaics symbolize the Persian crowns he sent to hang in Mecca.

The founding inscription is a monumental 240-meter long line of Kufic script running along the top of both sides of the octagonal arcade inside the Dome of the Rock. On the outer side of the arcade, the inscription quotes Quranic verses glorifying God.

On the eastern side, an inscription gives credit for the building's construction to the Abbasid caliph al-Mamun in the year 72 AH (691 AD). However, al-Mamun reigned from 813-33 AD, so the inscription clearly represents an Abbasid effort to claim credit for the achievement of the previous dynasty.

Much of the inscription on the inner side of the octagonal arcade exhorts Christians to depart from error of the Trinity and recognize the truth of Islam:

O People of the Book! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning God save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God, and His Word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers, and say not 'Three' - Cease! (it is) better for you! - God is only One God. Far be it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son. ... Whoso disbelieveth the revelations of God (will find that) lo! God is swift at reckoning! [5]
The columns supporting the inner octagon and the center circle are of different sizes; they were recycled from previous structures. The crosses on some show them to have been taken from churches. The carved ceilings on either side of the inner octagon were not part of the original design; they first appeared in the 14th century and have been restored since then. The Mamluk star is the dominant motif.

The small, flat mihrab (niche showing the direction of Mecca) belongs to the original building, and is the oldest mihrab preserved in the Islamic world. The wooden screen around the sacred rock was donated by the Ayyubid sultan al-Aziz in 1198. The Crusaders protected the rock from relic-snatching pilgrims by erecting a wrought-iron screen between the columns of the circle; it remained in place until 1960 and is now on display in the Islamic Museum.

The sacred rock that is the central focus of the shrine is a large, ancient rock that may have once stood in the center of Solomon's Temple. For Jews, it is the rock on which Abraham prepared to sacrifice Isaac. For Muslims, it is the rock from which Muhammad's winged horse leapt into the sky, accompanied by the Archangel Gabriel, on the "Night Journey" into heaven (Qur'an 17). The rock is said to bear the horse's imprint. Muslim tradition holds that an angel will come to the rock to sound the trumpet call of the Last Judgment at the end of the world. [7]

The reliquary next to the rock dates from the Ottoman period and contains a hair of Muhammad's beard.

The cavity beneath the rock, accessible by a staircase near the south entrance, is known as Bir el-Arwah, the "Well of Souls." It is said that here the voices of the dead mingle with the falling waters of the lower rivers of paradise as they drop into eternity.

Another legend says that the dead meet here twice a month to pray. In earlier days, those who prayed here after having walked around the rock were given a certificate entitling them admission to paradise; it was to be buried with them.

Default the rock of golgotha: place of the skull

The Rock of Golgotha inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Close-up image of the rocky escarpment that some claim to resemble the face of a skull, located northwest of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, near the Garden Tomb



Quote:
A bit of limestone wall exposed in the Chapel of Adam inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Christian tradition is that this is the burial place of Adam, which was supposed to be directly below the crucifixion site of Golgotha. The crack you see in the rock was believed by early Christians to have been formed during the earthquake upon the death of Jesus. Archaeologists suggest that it was a pre-existing crack in an old quarry. What I found interesting was that someone has placed a strain meter across the crack! Any movement of the rock here will not be good news for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Default more on golgotha, the site of temple to aphrodite


Jerusalem after being rebuilt by Hadrian. Two main east-west roads were built rather than the typical one, due to the awkward location of the Temple Mount, blocking the central east-west route

Quote:
The traditional location of Golgotha derives from its identification by Helena, the mother of Constantine I, in 325. A few yards nearby, Helena also identified the location of the Tomb of Jesus and claimed to have discovered the True Cross; her son, Constantine, then built the Church of the Holy Sepulchre around the whole site. In 333, the Pilgrim of Bordeaux, entering from the east described the result:
“ On the left hand is the little hill of Golgotha where the lord was crucified. About a stone's throw from thence is a vault [crypta] wherein his body was laid, and rose again on the third day. There, at present, by the command of the Emperor Constantine, has been built a basilica; that is to say, a church of wondrous beauty[9]. ”
...
Prior to Helena's identification, the site had been a temple to Aphrodite. Constantine's construction took over most of the site of the earlier temple enclosure, and the Rotunda and cloister (which was replaced after the 12th century by the present Catholicon and Calvary chapel) roughly overlap with the temple building itself; the basilica church which Constantine built over the remainder of the enclosure was destroyed at the turn of the 11th century, and has not been replaced. Christian tradition justifies this re-use by claiming that the location had originally been a Christian place of veneration, but that Hadrian had deliberately buried these Christian sites and built his own temple on top, on account of his alleged hatred for Christianity[10]. There is certainly evidence that just 30 years after Hadrian's temple had been built, Christians associated it with the site of Golgotha; Melito of Sardis, a late 2nd century bishop in the region, described the location as in the middle of the street, in the middle of the city[11], which matches the position of Hadrian's temple within the late 2nd century city.
However, Hadrian's temple had actually been located there simply because it was the junction of the main north-south road[citation needed] (which is now the Suq Khan-ez-Zeit, etc.) with one of the two main east-west roads (which is now the Via Dolorosa), and directly adjacent to the forum (which is now the location of the (smaller) Muristan); the forum itself had been placed, as is traditional in Roman towns, at the junction of the main north-south road with the (other) main east-west road (which is now El-Bazar/David Street). The temple and forum together took up the entire space between the two main east-west roads (a few above-ground remains of the east end of the temple precinct still survive in the Russian Mission in Exile).[citation needed]

It makes it way too clear that all of these supposedly separate civilizations and religions were usurped or under the control of some other architect.

Really, what business do human beings have squabbling over the same territory generation after generation, and then building temples in (supposedly) unrelated religions in that kind of pattern?

Kind of sickening. Human beings don't think like this. This is ritualistic draconian manipulation that goes on over many generations - beyond the attention span of any one generation.

Babylon at work.

Not only do they build pentagrams in our capitals, they had one laid out in the "holiest place on Earth"?
The angles might depend on the rites going on as different cultures have different prefences for how they sites their buildings. If there was one architect then why not one religion doing all of this and maybe one style of building?

Default dome of the rock and the ark of the covenant


The beautiful arch at the beginning of the rabbinical Hasmonean tunnel. Deeper in the tunnel the Priest’s Gate and Tunnel was discovered.

Quote:
One of the most exciting results of the discovery of the Gate and Tunnel of the Priests could be the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant was hidden in 606 BCE by King Josiah, 20 years before the destruction of the First Temple. It was hidden under the Temple Mount when this king commanded the High Priest to hide it because he felt that the destruction was soon to come and he wanted to save this most holy item from falling into the hands of the enemy or of being destroyed. Through the Mishnah and Talmud we know that it was hidden underneath the Temple Mount and through these books, Rabbi Getz knew the secret room under the Temple Mount where it was hidden. When we were in the tunnel he told me that if the cleaning of the tunnel continued he would shortly come to the secret room where the Ark was hidden. The room was under the Temple and the tunnel led to it. This was another proof that the Temple existed in the same place where the Dome of the rock was built. The High Priest could hide the Ark which should be under the Holy of Holies and this tunnel led to this place. All of us who were in the tunnel were so excited to know that the holy Ark of the Covenant that G–d gave to Moses together with the two stone tablets of the ten commandments, Aaron's rod, and a portion of the manna which were located in the Ark would soon be recovered.

This is awesome...

I would never have known the layout of any of these places unless I had gone there... the significance of these areas is no small matter but how many of us really know the layout?

It's almost occult in itself...

Default The Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem

Quote:
As this entire report will be built around the construction of this building order by the Rothchilds I should show you a picture of the building. A friend of mine took this picture as he and his wife flew over the area a couple years ago. The Supreme Court building sits on a plot of land opposite the Knesset and next to the Foreign Ministry and the Central bank of Israel. It is important to keep in mind that it sits in line with the Knesset, for we will be talking about Ley-Lines that cross under this pyramid running to the Knesset, with other ley-lines that cross in perfect order to the center of Jerusalem and on to the Rockefellow Museum. Everything about this building has been thought out to the very finest detail, and it is diabolical. The Devils plan has been put into place before we ever had an idea of his plan. He knows his final battle will be here in Jerusalem.

The Engineers who were chosen for this job by the Rothschild's were the grandson and granddaughter of Ben-Zion Guine from Turkey who worked for Baron Rothschild, Ram Kurmi, born in Jerusalem in 1931, and Ada Karmi-Melanede born in Tel-Aviv in 1936. For those who can make something out of the numbers. It was important to the builder to have everything done according to the correct numbers. There were 1,000 sheets of plans, 1,200 cement posts; they worked on the building for 3 years or 750 days. 20 workers each day, for 200,000 workdays, 250,000 building stones, each hand placed.


Quote:
The first thing you will notice is the pyramid with the all Seeing Eye just like the one you will see on the American dollar bill, it sits in a circle to the left. We will elaborate on this a little later in this article. The larger circle you see at the bottom of the picture is an inverted-cross designed to walk on. It is the only religious emblem designed to be trampled on under foot. At the top of the picture is a Moslem Gravesite, and just out of view to the right is an Egyptian Obelisk.




Quote:
And all through the building you will detect Hindu Altars. All of this will make more sense as we go along, keep in mind we are talking about the establishment of a form of Government that will usher in the anti-Christ.

There is little proof on the building itself of the presence of the Rothschild's but on an outside wall we find these two items.


Quote:
Giving recognition to the Rothschilds, you will notice the Rothschilds emblem at the top. It is the symbol for the founder of the Rothschild Dynasty and his five sons, who established central banks throughout Europe. The Rothschilds made several stipulations with the Israeli Government before the building began, among them were. The Rothschilds would pick the plot of land to build the Supreme Court; they would use their own architects, and no one would ever know how much the building cost. It took them four years to build this structure with many secrets built into it...

As we turn to the left and begin to walk towards the Pyramid we notice a metal strip in the marble floor. The Ley-Lines cross directly under the pyramid they run from this place to different places in the city. It is where the Judges and others can stand to receive knowledge and power. Standing directly over a piece of crystal with the all Seeing Eye of Lucifer the light bearer above them.

For those who are not aware of the term Ley-Lines, it is lines in geographical places that Witches, Warlock, and Wizards walk claiming for the Devil. If you will notice in every large city all palm readers and such are usually on the same street that is a ley-line.

Here is a map of Jerusalem, you can see that the Supreme Court Building and the Knesset are connected with one straight line, and at a 90% angle to that line half way is a Ley-line that runs perpendicular. That line runs straight down the middle of a street known as Ben Yehuda, a place where all the crazies meet, and at any given day you can find at least one who calls himself Elijah or Moses. Israelis call Ben Yehuda the freak show. That line runs on to the Rockefeller Museum; and from the Rockefeller Museum a line runs through the Moslem Quarters to the Temple Mount.

After passing through security the first thing you will notice
on the left wall is a large picture.


From the left you will see Teddy Kollek, then Lord Rothschild, on the right standing you will see Shimon Peres, and setting at the bottom left Yhzhak Rabin. And others who brought us the Olso death process that we are now faced with.

But this is where our journey begins as we begin to enter into the building, for this entire journey is intended to bring one from darkness into the light, and become an Illuminated one.

You first enter into an area with very dim lighting, but as you look up the stairs you see the bright light that comes from a very large window that over looks parts of Jerusalem.


Quote:
Here it is very important to count the steps; there are three sets of 10 steps, making a total of 30. As you ascend these 30 steps you come from the darkness into the light. And from here you can see the world or in this case the city of Jerusalem like you haven't seen it before. It is also worth mentioning that on the left side you will see the old Jerusalem Stone, some even believe these same stones were used in the second Temple, but I have no way to prove that. On the other side you will see the smooth modern wall. There are 6 lamp stands going up that speaks to man in his journey to gain knowledge and become illuminated. But once again I feel it necessary to tell you that it's very important to the ones who built this building that everything be perfect and in their order of things, even numerically.

Quote:
For a moment lets go back to the top of the 30 steps, as we know there are 33 degrees in Free Masonry but the last three are the ones of higher learning and preparations to enter the Illuminati. So as we move from the top of the stairs towards the Pyramid we see a great library with three tiers to those three levels of higher learner. They three final steps in Free Masonry and after that if ones choose to go higher and have been accepted they enter the highest levels of the Illuminati. It is also important in this building to note that the 33rd level ends at the base of the Pyramid.

Default Israel Supreme Court is Temple of Moloch

Hi biblegirl

My own research is that the Israeli supreme court is the location Solomon built the temple to Moloch, this is the high place where blood sacrifices take place, the children being burnt alive is still done in the valley of Hinnon.
The room with the all seeing eye of Luci is the room on the left of this pic:


As to the ley lines this pic is the key to tracking where they run & which buildings are being used by the Illuminati.


The very top sphere is the Prime ministers office with the supreme court upper right, the Knesset is the upper left & the Temple Mount i believe is the very bottom.

Here the links for the pictures plus a couple more covering the supreme court.

http://www.jerusalemshots.com/Jerusalem_en76-9427.html#

I know that children are being sliced open & their hearts pulled out still beating because i can feel it, i was born empathic. Tomorrow is Saturday & that's when the horror happens again.
The daily burnt offerings are done in secret so are harder for me to locate but the dissections in the supreme court are done in plain sight of day.

So all you base this on is 'empathy' and a 'feeling'? these are the sort of emotional reactions that trap people

Default The Ark of the Covenant

Biblegirl,

I do believe The Ark was, until recently, located in a cave, almost exactly beneath the location of the Crucifix. I believe Ron Wyatts' story about his discovery of the Ark (http://www.bibleplus.org/discoveries/arkintro.htm). I have seen no credible debunking on his story; alternatively, I percieve poor attempts to discredit him, which for me serve to bolster that the man is telling the truth.

For the crowley-lovers on your post, just as they believe that aleister received satanic inspiration from horus, so too I believe, that Ron received Divine Revelation that enabled him to locate the cave where the Ark was lying since the 6th century BC.

Ron found dried blood on The Ark. He had the dead dried blood tested in a Lab in Israel, without telling the Lab where it was from. The test results were incredible! Google YouTube for "Ron Wyatt talking about JESUS blood sample".

Ron duly, secretively, made 'Jewish Authorities' aware of the find. The cave was sealed. But whether the contents of the cave were emptied by 'Jewish Authorities' I do not know for sure. They would have a very strong motivation to do so. Therefore, I think that they did.

Think of the ramifications of Ron's find. That when the Roman soldier pierced Jesus on the Crucifix, the blood flowed through a crack in the rocks rent by a Divine earthquake, to a cave below, to drip on the Ark, to annoint it. That scenario would be touted by Christians as proof that JESUS is the MESSIAH. That would be a blow to the Hebrew and to the Muslim beliefs.

Does anybody doubt that the Israelis would not hesitate to cover something like that up?

This is a win-win situation. Perhaps Divine wisdom?

If the good guys now have the Ark, good.

If the bad guys now have the Ark, that is also good. The Ark is useless to them; without God's presence in it, it is just a piece of art. At least it will be safe and sound in the nuclear blast proof shelter where it probably would be now located, under that Justice Building...where then...it lies in wait.

Regards,
Fafherd

Are there any experts on LEY LINES on this forum?

I would very much like to know whether these monuments and buildings might be erected on LEY LINES:
