Where Yesteryear's Treasures Arise
The Hidden City
Uncovering PreExilic Jerusalem
A Review And More
"In that day will I raise up the tabernacle (habitation) of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will bind it as in the days of old."
"The Hidden City" (File One), "The PreBabylonian Jerusalem," introduces subsequent "Hidden City" texts as it explains basic truths, exposes falsehoods, describes the location of the ancient preExilic Jerusalem, identifies the hiding places of the three Temples, and much more. It, indeed, provides viewers with food for thought ... Why have remnants of a great castle, the world's three most renowned Temples, a whole city, and very obvious logical truths escaped searchers for 2,500 years? Yes, why? Even common sense and the Scriptures (Jeremiah 19:2 KJV; Joshua 15:7-8; Daniel 9:16; etc.) have been telling people where things are located for hundreds of years. But, people have been blinded. Again, why?
"The Hidden City" (File Two), "Jebus And The Temples,"
discusses: (1) The three rivers (the Ajalon, the Sorek, and the Elah); (2) En-rogel (the spring upon the Stone of Zoheleth that once flowed into the Sorek); (3) The Gihon (the gushing waters are flushing evidence of a sewer outflow); and, (4) Ophel (an obvious swelling or mound upon the landscape). File two explains the simplicity of searching out both the ancient city of Jebus and the Solomonic Temple. All readers should recognize where to look for things.
That is, En-rogel (the spring upon the Stone of Zoheleth) was associated with the Sorek and the true City of David (I Kings 1:9; I Samuel 17:17; Joshua 15:7); and En-rogel is obviously at a much higher elevation than the Gihon associated with the outflow from the ancient city of Jebus. Yes, everyone knows that water flows from higher pressure to lower pressure and therefore water flows downhill in non-pressurized systems. As such, waters from the Sorek's sources appear to flow into the ancient City of David to subsequently continue downhill to become this city's Gihon which then appears to become a water source of the Elah.
Whereas, further North, waters from the headwaters of the Ajalon are tunneled to and under the ancient Levitical City and the Solomonic Temple. The Levitical City and The Solomonic Temple then sent their wastewaters Southeastward via a tunnel extension into the pool in the King's Garden North of the elbow of the Valley of Ben Hinnom (Jeremiah 19:2 KJV; Nehemiah 3:13 ... the Valley Gate of the Solomonic Temple was the Northernmost gate on the East side of the city and the Dung Gate was 1,000 cubits Southward along the wall from the Valley Gate).
Each triple gate of the Levitical City is 128 cubits wide which includes two 10.5 cubit wings of wall structure (i.e. 21 cubits per each triple gate). Don't count the 35 X 35 cubit towers or the 37 cubit wide pedestrian center gates. They are "gates" not "wall." The Dung Gate is deeper beneath the outer wall. It is the gate between the walls of the water-sewer tunnel that leads to the Kings Garden. And, the Dung Gate was King Zedekiah's futile escape route beneath Nebuchadnezzar's army (II Kings 25:4; Jeremiah 39:4).
O.K., there are two basic water courses to consider: (1) From the Ajalon sources via tunnels under the Levitical City and the Solomonic Temple and onward to the pool in the King's Garden North of the elbow of the Hinnom; (2) From the Sorek (En-rogel spring) via tunnels under the true City of David (the city of Jebus) and onward as their wastewaters become a water source for the Elah.
Furthermore, an examination of the terrain should help identify the castle of David as Scripture calls it an "Ophel," a protrusion upon the landscape (II Chronicles 27:3; 33:14).
So, adding pieces together, the probability is that the castle of David should be between: (1) The source of the Sorek; (2) The source of the Elah; (3) West of the elbow of the Hinnom; and, (4) To the South of the Levitical City and Temple of Solomon.
"The Hidden City" (File Three), "The World Has Been Living A Lie!" explains why matters have remained hidden from disobedient humanity.
Historic invaders of the Holy Lands were brought against the lands due to the disobedience of people. In turn, the invaders, themselves, also suffered consequences for their actions. Thus, it was a no win situation for both groups.
Therefore, Solomon and his children were given David's Throne only to be invaded by Shishak and his Africans. Jeroboam then led the Ten Tribes North. Thereafter, the Holy Lands experienced a whole series of invaders including: Sennacherib and his Assyrians, the Persians, the Babylonians, the Greeks, Ptolemies of Egypt, the Seleucids of Assyria, the Romans, the Byzantines (a bloodless transfer of dominion), the Sassanids of Persia (Bactria), the Moslems, the Druse of Egypt, the Seljuk Turks, the Crusaders, the Khazars, the Mamluks, the Ottoman Turks, even Napoleon enjoyed a two year invasion, the British (whose empire then collapsed), and in 1948 Solomon's children reacquired dominion including the Solomonic Temple site. Thus, the Canaanite dominion upon David's World Throne came out from behind-the-scenes as Solomon's Kingdom, the throne over the Sixth Kingdom (Revelation 17:10-11), to officially reacquire dominion over the Holy Lands. But agents of the throne over the Sixth Kingdom took GOD'S Holy Ark captive in early 1985 (Zechariah 5:4; Genesis 49:1,10; Nahum 2:7). GOD then transferred His powers to a new entity, the Ten Tribes, that ascended to the throne over the Seventh Kingdom (Revelation 17:12-17).
The problem is that Canaanite invaders using lies, false pretenses, guns, killing, etc. to "justify" taking another's home, properties, jobs, wealth, etc. while freely oppressing the vanquished, is not very bright (Jeremiah 22:1-9). Furthermore, if Scripture is correct, the invaders would be wise to flee from the Holy Lands, make restitutions, and atone for their participation. After all,
"... in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts."
The taking and holding of GOD'S Holy Ark prisoner only compounds their offences.
Now for another thought. What if you were to tell any single invading authority (Shishak, Sennacherib, Nebuchadnezzar, or Alexander for example): "Hey buddy, you don't belong here in the Holy Land. Pack your bags and get out, pay restitution, and atone for your sins. If you don't you'll surely regret not doing so when the great day of GOD'S wrath comes upon you. Remember, by your actions and your inactions you bring blessings or curses upon yourself."
Perhaps you could have warned their vast armies but how many would pay heed? Jeremiah got thrown in the dungeon, Daniel got a free trip to Babylon, Isaiah didn't do much better, Jesus got nailed to the cross, and The Word Of GOD has been ignored and rejected from the beginning. "King Belshazzar's" wise men (and women) don't even understand it.
So, who has been warning modern day invaders of the Holy Lands ... the Canaanites? Smile! Scripture says to warn them or else (Ezekiel 3:17-21)! Then there are the big thieves and those serving and protecting International Organized Crime's vile activities (Isaiah 10:13-14). By 1999 the average US citizen, for example, worked four to six months of each year as slaves just to pay taxes supporting I.O.C.'s rip-off of the US Treasury to the tune of more than a billion dollars a day. That figure doesn't even begin to consider the wages of the myriad agents in Government supporting and protecting I.O.C.'s many Scams.
Yes, a second scam evolves when people have extra income, especially in economic good times. That is, people give their hard earned money to the market operators in exchange for counterfeit receipts as I.O.C.'s agents sell, sell, and sell bogus receipts to the naive investors. So, get ready for the myriad bankruptcies as the thieves' agents endeavor to make both the bogus and legitimate receipts worthless.
"He who sells what isn't his'n must buy it back or go to pris'n."
That little ditty is touted by the thieves' agents to cover their vile activities ... they know what they are doing and they know they're being protected by their agents in government. But how many people are warning them as directed by Ezekiel 3:17-21 which says if you don't warn the wicked their vile sins are upon the heads of those who don't warn them. And that also applies to the Canaanites occupying the Holy Lands. Warn them or join them in their punishments.
Yes, it sounds fruitless to warn wicked kings and their armies but The LORD'S Day is here and the Firstfruits will soon be identified. Those multitudes not amongst that Little Flock will have a thousand years or far longer to reflect on why they didn't make it. Sharing punishments with the wicked won't be fun and is avoidable.
So, now you know why the ancient castle of David, the Levitical City, and the preserved remains of the Solomonic Temple have remained hidden for millennia.
"The Hidden City" (Files Four and Five), "Measuring The Levitical City" and "Notes For Levitical City Measures," explain a means for precisely locating the Altar in the midst of the Levitical City. The Altar then enables searchers to accurately identify positions of component parts of the City. As such, these texts relate several sources and their measures to describe the Levitical City and its component parts.
"The Hidden City" (File Six), "Common Sense And The Design Of The Temple Amphitheatre," now shows what excavators can expect when uncovering the great amphitheatre centered within the Levitical City.
"The secret things belong unto the LORD our GOD: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law."
