Jesus will reward believers in heaven according to quality of their work for God in life. An eternal crown category is described by types of effort or sacrifices made in life by doing the works of God. So Bible in 1 Corinthians 3:12 describes rewards as gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw. That great day all will receive reward based on the foundation laid in building their life and ministry. So each person’s ultimate performance in life is built on God foundation of gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay and stubble, merits of rewards guaranteed. A loyal believer is guaranteed salvation in Christ if one remains faithful to the end so saved. On entry into heaven in passing or Rapture is the great reunion of family and loved ones in Christ sanctified by blood of Lamb Jesus. This guarantees salvation means eternal joy in God’s Presence above all plus reward of the quality of faithful servants of God. This rewards are cast at the feet of Jesus and believers continue in heaven praising God. They face reward assessment seat of God so believers receive Jesus their appropriate rewards entitled to by their performance in life by the grace of God. Various books of life and remembrance are opened and checked to tell believers their lifestyle deeds recorded by God. 5 golden crowns for righteusness, crown of life, crown of glory, the incorruptible crown, crown of rejoicing in the Lord.Gold star standard reward is based on a trial of enduring ‘fire’ process as Daniel and friends were tested in fire survived with Jesus. Jesus decides who is faithful so rewards believer’s shared testimony. Each reward level is compared to gold standard, silver, precious stones like the Olympic gold medals a person gets what they deserve by their hard work in life. Believer’s life work merits gold, silver, according to the record books of God. So a reward is compared to other precious stones like diamonds, rubies, sapphires as God decides based on assessment of their lifestyle history and faithfulness. Precious stones put through fire often produce the best quality priceless most durable treasures. A believer’s work is tested in fire check if merits high level precious stones quality or is chaff. Good works of gold, silver and precious stone last as John 15:16 says in the Bible God ordains believer appointed, chosen to bear fruit that will remain. Paul said he ran the race to win as the disciples of Jesus do, saving others so did not want to be lost or left behind. Prayers of soul winners is their fruit will last to remain rooted and grounded in Christ eternally saved to receive respective rewards. So believers then can ask God for anything within the WILL of God. God chose the belivers appointed to bear good fruit and for fruits to remain. So trees not bearing good fruits accordinly then God cuts off, prunes branches to divert nourishment to healthy viable plants and all grafted in. Some fruits do not remain as drawn away by own lusts or cares of the world. Like wood, hay, straw, stubble, burns in fire combusting too quickly so is not fire retardant or resistant. God’s Consuming fire puts believer’s works to test so good works last but others burn so does not last. Like parable of sower, seed on good soil grow 100% but others get lost or fall away by snares, cares or worries of the world. God’s Mercy, Compassion saves sower whose fault it is not when some believers drift off like the prodigal son. Freewill means some leave God, Ezekiel 3:33 and 33:7 says if believers saves soul his blood is not demanded from them. If believers refuse to save a soul his blood will be accounted for to God for a lost soul. God knows those ministered but if rejects God and soul lost believer’s work tried in fire receives a reward because such lost blood is not demanded by God. Therefore a believer remains saved in God’s Presence in heaven despite loss. It confirms what Jesus said that some use His Name in vain so He rejects them for falling short of Glory of God. No reward is given except God’s wrath sending lost into hellfire for gnashing of teeth.So Judgement starts in the House of God during Rapture those in Christ qualify so rescued from great tribulation way of escape to go to heaven. Jesus intercedes at the Right Hand of God on behalf of all believers to remain faithful to endure to the end so saved as His Chosen jewels. God so loved the world HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON Jesus Who died to set free all from sins and condemnation. Jesus after death and His resurrection visited and encouraged apostles, disciples, believers to reassure He is praying for them. But Jesus draws the line against those who totally reject God forever by not wasting time to cast pearls before swine. Those who reject God Jesus warns that if they do not repent they have no reward but REJECTION in return by God. John 17:9 says penalty of rejection of God is Jesus not praying for the world anymore after proving He is Messiah and Son of God Raised from death, healed the sick, did miracles, saved souls, raised the dead and fed thousands many times before ascension He told disciples to continue in the faith. But those still in the world not convinced He is Messiah unless all repent there is no more hope for them. Jesus continues to pray specifically for His disciples those saved He loves to be protected from evil viles. Jesus said in Mathew 24:24 if elect are not discerning can be deceived, as the rest world of the world who reject him forever, cannot be saved even if prayed for by Jesus they have reprobate minds. Like wood, hay and stubble burns forever despite time devoted for years to minister to help them but believer is rewarded by Jesus. All who prefer the world and things of the world burn forever in hell fire and their assets burn like wood straw hay or stubble. The material things confidence is put in life burns like wood, hay, straw, stubble to chaff ashes in God’s unquenchable fire without rewards. Jesus rewards faithful with gold, silver, precious stones but others in Romans 1, their rebellious destructive freewill God allows them to deceive themselves by a reprobate mind. Such prefer to honour creatures more than Creator God and so endorse rebellion against the church of God in Christ. God warns them Jesus is even at the door so cannot tolerate any longer those that choose to reject God. During evangelism powerful instruction given is test the spirit to discern if they are of God. Avoid time wasters sent to distract reaching precious souls whose last chance it may to be saved before passing on. God’s Word is the Seed sown and different soils represent people but God’s Holy Spirit Nurtures for Spiritual growth through watering and sunshine. This principle enables Jesus to decide if the believer’s duty of agape love or care for lost souls was gold standard, not to blame them for lost souls. God knows as HE records those who qualify for God’s Kingdom Life. The required Wisdom of God to ministers for lost is to depend on prayers of intercession and dedication. Many are lost even in church as Joyce Meyer says living in a garage does not make you a car. God before foundation of earth preordained those predisposed to salvation and those who chose to side with fallen angels against God. So keep up prayer and trust God that your fruits remain. The Bible says, God appointed those Chosen to bear fruit and ask God for more souls in prayer for God’s Mercy to keep you, family, loved ones and to save backsliders and prodigals to return into Father God’s House in Lord Jesus’ Name quickly before it is too late. In the long-run God eliminates all who reject HIM forever from HIS HOLY CITY PRESENCE to hell based on HIS WORDS in BOOK of Remembrance in Malachi 3:16.
Science confirms experiences recorded by research of doctors during the near death or process of dying. Opportunity came back to explain death experience scientifically including changes in brain and out of body true stories recounted. Many religions believe in afterlife that the soul or spirit goes out of the body to live a new life in the spiritual realm. So people believe good people are sent into heaven while the wicked person is sent to hell to be tormented by a blazing fire. The stories reflect if a righteous person is sent to heaven to live an eternal and joyful life or enters abyss of darkness. It is these encounters shared as recorded scientifically during each process. These scientists study religious interpretation of death as mythology. The researchers devoted themselves to unravelling this mystery to establish if there is some sort of life after death. At the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, researchers confirmed in a new study indeed life exists after death. The study published online journalResuscitation.
The study is said to be the largest ever medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences. The study revealed some awareness continues after a brain is shut down completely. Human beings are pronounced clinically dead if heart stops beating and brain shuts down in a condition called cardiac arrest. In study, according to the researchers, they spent four years examining more than 2,000 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the United Kingdom, the United States and Austria. They found that nearly 40% of people who survived resuscitation described some awareness during time when clinically dead. Of the 2,060 cardiac arrest patients studied the 330 survived and the 140 surveyed 39% said they experienced awareness while being resuscitated. Although many of them could not recall specific details, some themes emerged. One in five said they felt unusual sense of peacefulness, while nearly one third said time slowed down or speeded up toward heaven.
Some recalled seeing a bright light; a golden flash or the Sun shining. Others recounted feelings of fear, drowning or being dragged through deep water. 13% said they had felt separated from their bodies, and the same number said their senses had been heightened. A 57-year-old man from Southampton, who was pronounced dead for three minutes, said he left his body entirely, watching his resuscitation from the corner of the room. He was able to accurately recount actions of nursing staff and the sound of machines used in resuscitation process. Lead researcher of study Dr Sam Parnia said the study accurately reveals people experience some awareness after death. Dr Parnia was quoted as saying: “We know the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating. But in this case, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into period when heart wasn’t beating even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped. The man described everything that had happened in the room, but importantly, he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals. So we timed how long experiences lasted for. The brains seen here reveal differences between the normal conscious brain, a cardiac arrest brain and the dead brain. Confirms alertness as brain still records immediate ongoing events surrounding a cardiac arrest state of consciousness.
He is very credible so everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened.” Dr Parnia added that many more people have such experiences and when they are close to death. But drugs, sedatives used during resuscitation may stop them remembering some details. It is estimated and suggested that millions of people have had vivid experiences in relation to death but scientific evidence have been published. Leading doctors and atheists who encountered the near death experience shared encounters in books. Many people use to assume these were hallucinations or illusion but now science records corresponded to actual events. Higher proportion of people have vivid death experiences but do not recall all due to effects of a brain injury or sedative drugs on memory circuits. It is now documented by reserach so these experiences further confirm what Bible teaches on afterlife. Commenting on the study editor-in-chief of online journal Resuscitation, Dr Jerry Nolan said Dr Parnia and colleagues are congratulated on completion of fascinating study that opens door to more extensive research into what happens after life.
The Bible and many cultures have their strong beliefs on the afterlife so prepare towards future life. It shows life on earth does not finish in the total death of knowing nothing and completely eradicated. Instead life goes on after death but the destination often depends on when a person is righteous in the WILL of God or is a wicked rebellious perishing in hell. The ultimate final say and decision belongs to God based on the Book of life records of each person. This is why the righteous enjoy blissful bright light encounter of heaven in their shared stories. On the other hand those who reject God, Christ experience utter darkness of abyss and hell. After life is real so Bible reveals so many people go to heaven and are back on earth at one time. Today, people not dead still are invited into heaven to bring a message from God to world. Sitting in heavenly places means some people enjoy direct link into heavenly Presence of God. And people from heaven sent help on earth. There is daily contact between heaven and earth or hell so choice depends on individual if they believe in God or not.

How a few moments of death dragged on so felt like an eternity in his head.
￼GETTY – CONTRIBUTOR
This anonymous man claims to know what happens to your soul after you die. The man drowned a year and a half ago, and experienced a sensation like he was travelling in the moments before he was resuscitated by lifeguards. He said: “In his travel was gifted knowledge of where good souls go to and where the doomed souls are sent to.” And the man claims things take very dark turn in the afterlife if not been good with doomed souls sent to a place with “no light.” He adds: “You will know you are in hell and will be there for all eternity. Without no thoughts except knowing you are a bad person haunts your mind. The darkness leaves you in a terrified paralysis where you can’t see anything except the vast dark emptiness of hellish universe with no stars, no light, no anything, not even thought. “I will not wish a worst enemy to go to this place.”

Account of afterlife suggests good and bad souls separated, sent to different places waiting final judgement into hell. Seems not ‘bad’ before judgement pain.
Experinced captured on camera prove that timing is everything. This post also describes what happens if you’ve been good and anonymous man claims went to a “calming place on a hill” when he drowned. He said: “I felt everything was going to be OK forever so wouldn’t ever worry about anything as life is blissful.”

Good souls ascend into this better place, where everything is calm. And, in case you were wondering, the man revealed how you’ll come to know that you’ve died. He said: “When you die you’ll know you’re dead because one of two things will happen, you’ll either be travelling through what will look like a tunnel of light shooting all around you or you will be in a place that comes with nothing but fear and darkness around. “Now as for the tunnel, its not really a tunnel its more of what from outside looks like glowing cord slowly whipped around in space and all light shooting around inside with the good souls going in all the same direction to better place.

Things don’t just stop when you die as this anonymous account is believable. It is this account of the afterlife explaining why there is truth to claims that there is ongoing life after death. Previous teams of scientists came across other similar evidence suggesting humans have souls which leave body after death. Last year, such a remarkable claim about afterlife made by terminally-ill violinist survivor of 17 near-death experiences and claims to other side. A doctor is among millions globally who ‘glimpsed afterlife’ in their near-death experiences lifestory shared.
A nun in France prayed for a woman with disability in a wheel chair and she walked. Her testimony is shared here to thank God and bring awareness on the issues disability can sometimes give rise to like unspoken questions, sensitivities, yet amid the awkwardness there can be humour. This story is edited version of a monologue by Abigail Brown who has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, known as brittle bone disease. It was summer of 2011, and the family was on holiday in Paris. I know it was 2011, because it was the same summer Amy Winehouse died, which meant that my holiday wardrobe consisted almost entirely of black gauze and winged eyeliner. I devoted long hours to painstakingly translating French news articles with the help of my mother’s 1983 French pocket dictionary, although it lacked crucial vocabulary around narcotics. In addition to the dictionary I inherited a genetic bone condition: osteogenesis imperfecta or brittle bones. It is an inherently comic disability and means I can break bones in almost any situation, including – but not limited to – getting out of bed, watching rugby, learning to play the guitar or sneezing. It doesn’t just affect bones – it’s like a lifelong game of Pokemon, except you collect medical conditions instead of adorable cartoon creatures. My mum and I both have short stature, spinal deformities and a rare form of hearing loss which, ironically, nobody has ever heard of. My mum’s mum is by far the fittest of the three of us and got hearing aids at the more sensible age of 72. On a recent multi-generational trip to Pret A Manger, we found the music interfered with all six of our collective hearing aids and we baffled the barista by responding to: “Are you eating in?” with “Just a splash”, “By card”, and “Thanks very much”. The barista felt so sorry for us she gave us a cup of tea on the house. Like many people with brittle bones, I can stand, walk, and, if the mood takes me, dance like a 90-year-old with an arthritic hip. After 15 years spent using my two feet, my legs took themselves into retirement approximately 60 years earlier than the rest of me so these days I whip out walking on special occasions. Back to 2011, which was the summer I started using a wheelchair for long distances. There’s me and family traipsing around Paris, my brother practicing wheelies with my wheelchair and me sweating profusely under all my black gauze. We wind up in Montmartre to visit the Sacre-Coeur. This landmark Catholic church was built at the highest point in Paris at the top of an extremely steep hill with cable car to transport wheelchairs, pushchairs, the otherwise disabled, elderly and people halfway up the steps. From there you either have to walk up the remaining steps or take a long and painfully cobbled route around the side of the hill to the top. Typical French Catholics – they do like to make sure you’ve put the effort in. We were sitting at the top of the cable car section, admiring the view before attempting the steps, when a group of nuns appeared and began to set up for a short biblical play. Unfortunately, the only member of my family who is both biblically literate and able to speak some French is my mother – who, as I’ve mentioned, is also severe-to-profoundly deaf. While she made a valiant attempt to recall bible stories based on such visual clues as a nun brandishing an enormous key wrapped in aluminium foil at another nun dressed in a white cassock with a pipe cleaner “halo”, the moral of the story was lost on us all and we remained unconverted, heathen Anglicans. After the play, while mum fretted about whether the one with the tinfoil key was St Peter or St Paul, the nuns passed out leaflets to the crowd. There I sat, sweaty and despondent, in a desperately ill-fitting wheelchair, when a haloed, white cassocked figure appeared above me. Presumably my carefully curated mourning look for sorrow over my disability, touched her and the nun bent down and placed a reassuring hand on my shoulder. “We pray for you,” she said. “We pray your legs better.” In the six years since I began using a wheelchair, I’ve been prayed for multiple times, in multiple languages, by people of varying religions. I don’t know what the waiting time is supposed to be whether prayers are supposed to be answered instantly, or whether there’s some kind of triage system in place – but I’m still awaiting the day I leap out of bed in pain-free ecstasy and run to the top of Mount Sinai to sacrifice a goat. That said, I would never be so bold as to say prayer doesn’t work, I’ve just never seen one in action. My legs were actually pretty good, in the grand scheme of things, that summer. It was my spine which was causing problems, so I felt a little uncomfortable accepting such heartfelt prayers on behalf of two unstable but really quite nice-looking legs from a stranger wearing a pipe cleaner halo. I considered asking the nun whether I could re-direct the prayers to a more worthwhile cause. Whether she thought St Peter or St Paul would forgive Amy Winehouse’s rampant drug abuse in the case of a six-time Grammy award-winner and Brit Awards’ Best Female Solo Artist 2007. I thanked the nun, wiped the sweat from my forehead, and probably gave her the best day of her religious career. I stood up from my wheelchair and without a backward glance, I walked up the steps to the Sacre-Coeur. Similar stories happen all over the world today because Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Those who prays in the name of Jesus to God for healing are answered according to God’s WILL and timing. Jesus healed many people in the Bible as did Apostles and disciples who followed Jesus. The Holy Spirit is actively working through nuns and all who believe in Christ to save, deliver and heal in Jesus Name.
The Bible talks of sexual conduct in God’s laws, regulations to enjoy loving each other intimately. God created sex, so accepts and recommends mutual sex consent agreement between married couples in 1 Corinthians 7:5. Its important to read God’s laws on sex in Bible not assume church recommend oral sex so its alright to do so. Issues of harmful infections of STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) spread by spouse knowingly or unknowingly affects married partner. It is important to discuss diseases transmitted by oral sex because people think it is the safest way to prevent pregnancy. So people have the Actinomyces species bacteria israelii and bovis lining in mouth, throat, digestive tract, urinary tract and in the female genital tract. Oral sex infection contracted causes throat cancer without immediate effect for years. Can develop into other diseases if carrier passes it in mutual sex. Most couples do not test as part of marriage process. So anyone with bacteria harmless in the body becomes dangerous if a person develops a disease, or if there is damage to tissue lining bacteria to spread. Actinomyces bacteria are anaerobic, which means they flourish deep inside body tissues where oxygen level is low. Bacteria within deeper tissues is harder to diagnose, and often takes longer to treat. The disease can be triggered when internal body tissues is pierced by something sharp in esophagus, or through tooth decay or gum disease. As disease progresses, painful abscesses can form and grow in size, usually over a period of months. Some can be severe surrounding bone, muscle penetrated. The infections can be large enough skin breaks open, leaking large amounts of pus. Be safe even if you agree mutually to engage in oral sex use condoms and do not use excuse it creates barriers to prevent natural penetration contact. A lot of couples get throat diseases, host of complex illnesses caused by oral sex.
Types of actinomycosis
Actinomycosis can occur in virtually any part of the human body, but certain parts are more commonly affected. Half of all cases affect head, neck area, and the rest occur in areas such as the chest and the gastrointestinal tract. There are four main types:
Orocervicofacial actinomycosis affects the mouth, jaw or neck, and it usually stems from dental problems, often caused by dental decay and poor oral hygiene. Actinomycosis cause abscess after some dental procedures. Bacteria lives in dental plaque. Trauma to mouth or face also trigger it, including particles that injure mucous membrane. It can develop after some dental procedures. The infection may be obvious at once, or within one to several weeks of the trauma occurring. The person notices a hard, painful swelling in cutaneous or soft tissue, known as “woody” fibrosis, or they may develop an abscess. It is the most common form, and it accounts for 50 percent of all cases.
Thoracic actinomycosis infection can develop in the airways and lungs. It often happens when bacteria from the mouth and throat are unintentionally inhaled and enter the lungs. Symptoms affect lungs to start with but can extend to the area around lungs, chest cavity and vertebrae of the upper trunk. The person experiences weakness, fever, a productive cough or severe weight loss.
Abdominal actinomycosis infection occurs in the abdomen but it can affect other parts of digestive system, from the esophagus to anorectal area. It happens after somes case of appendicitis person develops abscess persistent fever and pain. Actinomyces in abdominal cavity can lead to infection in pericardium sac around the heart, or within the liver or spleen. Sometimes, a secondary pelvic infection may result.
Pelvic actinomycosis occurs within the pelvis as infection can spread from the vagina. It used to be thought that the women who use an intrauterine device (IUD) for contraception had the higher chance of developing this infection with extended use, but risk is now estimated to be very low, around 0.001 percent. A gynecological procedure can make it make it likely for women to develop pelvic actinomycosis. The bacteria can cause abscesses in ovaries and fallopian tubes and lead to complications with other organs within abdomen and pelvis. Actinomycosis rarely affects a central nervous system (CNS). This can happen directly due to neck lesion or face or spread from elsewhere. It can lead to brain abscess causing headaches and neurological symptoms. Other rare type affects skin, bones, usually when infection spreads from deeper tissues.
Actinomycosis can take variety of forms mimicks other infections or neoplasms. It is important to check a private sexual act to see if it is causing health issues as pointed by medical journals referred to. This article informs people to become more aware of sexually related illnesses than can be connected to oral sex, they may not think is affected by oral sex. It good to be in know if sexual activities is contributing to complex health issues. It is vital to remember Actinomycosis as a bacterial infection also spreads through body tissues. Disease features a number of small interlinked abscesses. People have gems on hands even after washing hands. Multitudes of bacteria on hands mixed with bacteria in mouth, throat, digestive tract, vaginal walls is a toxic combination of hybrid gems evolving to complex infections of health problems.
Symptoms differ according to the type of actinomycosis, but they may include:
- Swelling and inflammation at the site of the infection
- Tissue damage and scar tissue
- Abscesses, or pus-filled lumps
- Small holes or tunnels in tissue called fistulas that can leak a kind of lumpy pus.
The severity of symptoms depends on area of the body affected by infection. There may be pain and fever with body aches fatigue and generally feeling not well. It is estimated 75 percent to 95 % of actinomycosis lesions and infections involve other bacteria. Actinomycoses does not act alone so infections: group-B streptococcus, E. coli and a range of sexually transmitted infections affect babies at birth. Bible in 1 Corinthians 11:30 says for this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep (die). Profaning of body and Blood of Lord Jesus through sexual immorality as prevalent in Sodom and Gomorrah killed people for their lack of knowledge and understanding of God’s Words. God says HIS PEOPLE perish for their lack of knowledge. Fear of God is beginning of wisdom for preservation into eternal life. A period of abstention every month forces a couple to build a non-sexual bond and sexual one. Helps build couple’s desire for each other making intercourse in the remaining two weeks more special. Gives partners chance to rest not feeling sexually inadequate. So emphasises self-discipline fundamental to high moral value sexual drive.
Diagnosis and treatment
Laboratory investigations to diagnose actinomycosis include microscopic examination of a culture of sputum or pus, or tissue taken in a biopsy. Pus or tissue typically contain yellow sulfur granules. Actinomycosis can be chronic condition so long-term treatment with antibiotics is common. Patients may need treatment ranging from 6 weeks to 12 months. In some cases, surgery is performed to drain an abscess or to remove an infected part, after which a 3-month course of antibiotics may be needed to resolve problem. To decrease the chance of developing actinomycosis, people should avoid any alcohol abuse, maintain good health and keep chronic medical conditions under control and practice good dental hygiene. Countries with good access to antibiotics or dental services, the incidence of actinomycosis tends to be lower. Increasingly young people told “oral sex is not really sex,” so promoted safe no risk pregnancy no risk of catching a sexually transmitted disease alternative to intercourse. The Bible in Leviticus 18 gives a long list of the sexual dos and don’ts acceptable to God. As the creator and originator of sex God has very high interest in body His Holy temple so gives instructions in Bible. Ephesians 5:3 says to believers, among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or impurity because these are improper for God’s Holy people.” Bible says “immorality” is forms sexual contact outside marriage. In Hebrews 13:4 the “marriage bed” is pure and undefiled according to Bible, sex is to be reserved for only marriage. Oral sex is sin if done before or outside marriage as the contraception method. Natural rhythm based on the monthly cycle of a woman is the safest method. A few days of 3-5 days before or after her ovulation the sperm can still live on for gestation. The rest of the month is free for natural safe sex. Discipline and self control is required to check her body temperature measured by thermometer to signal safest days for intercourse. The problem is lack of alertness to record a monthly cycle. Impulsive sex fuelled by drugs or alcohol can blur memory. It is necessary to be in tune with one’s body fully so to know exact days of ovulation of peak time for conception. The cervix accompanied by mucous helps to know exact day of ovulation. And men must be trained to have mutual agreement as Bible requires. Sex on demand anytime because you are his wife with threats to seek comfort elsewhere lacks accurate knowledge. God wants a couple to enjoy intimacy and be safe as well. Be careful if pastors and ministers approve of oral sex because it is your body that suffers consequences of a reckless behaviour.Is oral sex a sin within a marriage?
Christian married couples ask question and Bible disallows oral sex between a husband and wife or any sexual activity involving other people like swapping, threesomes, etc. or lusting after another person and pornography. So restrictions principle of “mutual consent” applies to 1 Corinthians 7:5 text requiring couples to abstain from frequency by “mutual consent” within marriage. This agrees perfectly with rhythm method as God killed Onan for wasting precious seed in the Bible. To fully agree between wife and husband it is good to space sex and enjoy comforting embraces. Depending on fasting total abstinence by spouses is highly recommended. So do not force or coerce into oral sex in marriage in the spirit of good mutual consent. There is a biblical case for declaring coercion sin. It can lead to the complex health issues of health caused by oral sex. Marriage or sex is God’s gift for affection intimacy so moral duty for practising believers to please God in the bedroom. So biblically acceptable for sexual intercourse for a married couple to follow joy of rhythm method. God is not wicked wizard of the West denying pleasure within confines of marriage. It is to ensure that sexual interaction must not cause curses of the disease of Bible in Deuteronomy 28 to come upon those disobeying God’s Commands. Oral sex is not free from sin by mutual consent if a partner becomes infected with diseases. This costs high medical insurance premiums and life savings to treat lifetime consequence of fleeting moments of passion. So people must know the connection between oral sex and their lifestyle choices. Oral sex is not as “safe” as promoted alternative sexual intercourse, sexually transmitted diseases published by medical journals shows it is definitely not as safe as it is often suggested. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV/AIDS, and other STDs can be transmitted through oral sex. So be aware and take great care of your Holy precious Temple if you choose to please God. In some cultures it is a taboo for a reason because infection spreads to the innocent victims.STORY TO ALL MEN EVERYWHERE:
A man who lived abroad 64 years old lived in US 35 years with his family happily. Had a wonderful wife by his side but took her for granted, didn’t pay much attention to her always had a vision of going back to others.

Behold I am with you always to the end of the age. Amen Thank you Father thank you Jesus.
Total eclipse 21st August 2017 Monday will happen and the Researchers from Aberystwyth University will be the first of five teams to record the latest total eclipse of the sun, which crosses the US on 21 August. The scientists joined an international team of solar scientists to study event. Called the Great American Eclipse 2017, the eclipse will last about two minutes and 40 seconds. Swansea-born singer Bonnie Tyler will perform her 1983 hit Total Eclipse of the Heart while it is taking place. Tyler, who will perform on a cruise ship positioned in the path of eclipse, told Time magazine it was “so exciting.” And Dr Joe Hutton and Steve Fearn from Aberystwyth’s department of physics will be recording event in rural town of Mackay, Idaho.

They will deploy a new spectrometer designed to capture the light during totality – when the moon completely blocks the sun’s light. Dr Hutton said: “Totality only lasts two minutes in one given spot, but the shadow of the moon will make landfall in the USA for a total of about an hour and thirty minutes, as it slowly sweeps across. “Having these five observations points along this path of totality, can help build up time series of solar atmosphere using the eclipse observations, something which hasn’t been done before on this scale. This eclipse predicted 2300 years ago by the prophets in Revelations 12 apocalypse predicted next year by the prophecy Christian website Unsealed. The solar event will spread across America on August 21 crossing 12 US states. And Western Europe, UK, Ireland, France, Spain will experience partial eclipse. It is the first total eclipse to travel from one coast of America to another across 12 states and 48 places almost 100 years so some believe this is endtime sign as eclipse leaves USA in a total darkness before reaching Europe partial eclipse.
A solar eclipse corona aura light creates diamond ring by sun sparkling bright so glitters. In the UK, the moon will cover 10% of the sun’s diameter and 2% of its area. The partial eclipse starts at around 7.30pm and last around 40 minutes. The celestial event is first total solar eclipse to cross the United States from coast to coast in 99 years and the first to pass through any part of the lower 48 states in 38 years. The next major eclipse will be on August 12, 2026, as a very large partial eclipse across Britain, ranging around 96% in Cornwall to 91% in Aberdeen. The next total eclipse visible in the UK is due in September 23, 2090. These eclipses are considered part of Daniel’s sealed vision pointing toward the birthpang endtime events beginning great tribulations. A solar corona hazy aura of light surrounding the sun will be revealed. In the UK, the moon will cover 10% of the sun’s diameter and 2% of its area. The partial eclipse will start at around 7.30pm and last for around 40 minutes. The eclipses discovered by NASA and other total solar eclipses revealed by Japan’s Himawari 8 satellite in geostationary orbit around earth measuring weather patterns. Eclipse caused by moon blocking sun motion as Earth’s real motion spins once a day on its axis. Planet earth rotates from west to east and sun rises from East so sets in West in sky seems going other direction.

History record eclipses with timings of the Biblical events interpreted as Divine messages or signs from God. God’s Epicentre endtime since ancient Israel, and Jerusalem’s impact on the world. And King Hezekiah, Judah’s good king reformer was ill and asked God to spare his life. God heard him and extended his life 15 years, plus instructions for cure in 2 Kings 20:1–11 and Isaiah 38:1–7. In 2 Chronicles 32:24 and 2 Kings tells o Surely, Hezekiah’s greatest Physician God healed him and preserved his life. Isaiah the prophet informed Hezekiah he would die from his illness. Hezekiah prayed for healing, and Isaiah was sent back to tell the king in message: The LORD will heal him and give him 15 years of life Hezekiah asked for a sign was to confirm healing. Then Hezekiah chose shadow to move back in 2 Kings 20:10. On March 5 in 702 B.C.E., the 16th year before Hezekiah’s death, a prominent solar eclipse appeared over the Middle East recorded in NASA’s 5 Millennium of Solar Eclipses said path crossed Arabian Peninsula obscured the sun over Israel more than 60 percent. It is similar event of rare Biblical sign that a hundred years later the Greeks talked about other eclipses. On 21st 2017 total solar eclipse will be visible all the way from the east coast to west coast. After that another rare solar eclipse like this will move across the country 7 years later in 2024. It is necessary to point out that an eclipse per se does not indicate end time by itself. Jesus said in Matthew 24:29 among other biblical passages link to end time events known only to God. The signs warn people to be more alert about with astronomical phenomena as a sign. The sun, moon, stars, meteors, and darkness upon earth like eclipses are mentioned in connection with end-times Bible prophecies. Jesus said there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars in Luke 21:25 so natural astronomical phenomena occurring is an event of many signs and wonders. Yet the end times approach specific agenda lies with God to determine. Eclipses and blood moons in Matthew 24:29 connect with the end time for immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give light in Isaiah 13:10. The solar eclipse of the sun significantly darkens earth and the light reflected by the moon is gone. A lunar eclipse light reflected by moon reduces so fits darkness on earth but only God knows exact day of endtime.
A Canadian woman got an extra carrot with her diamond ring when it was found in her vegetable patch 13 years after she lost it. Mary Grams, 84, was devastated when she lost the ring while weeding on the family farm in Alberta in 2004. She had kept the ring’s loss a secret from all but her son for more than a decade. On Monday, daughter-in-law discovered the secret and the ring when she pulled up a lumpy carrot. The carrot had grown straight through the ring, enabling it to be plucked out after many years hiding in the soil. She had decided not to tell her husband when she lost it, out of embarrassment, but she told her son. She went and bought a slightly cheaper replacement ring, and carried on as if nothing had happened. “Maybe I did the wrong thing, but you get so worked up,” she said, no one was wiser. This week her daughter-in-law Colleen Daley decided she wanted some carrots for supper.Image caption Ms Daley, lives on the farm where Mrs Grams used to live, went to harvest some vegetables in the garden. Lo and behold, she spotted the ring while washing a rather lumpy carrot. Her son instantly knew who ring belongs to and called his mother. And looking back, Mrs Grams said she wishes she had told her husband, who died five years ago. He was a joker, she said, and probably would have found this whole situation pretty funny. Now that she has it back, she said she will be more careful. “If I am going outside or anything I am going to put it in a safe space. That is what I should have done,” she said. This is not first time someone found a diamond ring on a carrot. In 2011, a Swedish woman found her wedding ring 16 years after she lost it. A Swedish woman has discovered her wedding ring on a carrot growing in her garden, 16 years after she lost it, says a newspaper. Lena Paahlsson had long ago lost hope of finding the ring, which she designed herself, reports Dagens Nyheter. The white-gold band, set with seven small diamonds, went missing in her kitchen in 1995 she told the paper. Although the ring no longer fits, she hopes to have it enlarged so she can wear it again. Mrs Paahlsson and her family live on a farm near Mora in central Sweden. She took the ring off to do some Christmas baking with her daughters, but it disappeared from the work surface where it had been left, she explained to Dagens Nyheter. The family searched everywhere and years later took up the tiling on the floor during renovations, in the hope of finding the ring. It was not until 16 years later when Mrs Paahlsson was pulling up carrots in her garden that she noticed one with the gold band fastened tightly around it. The carrot was sprouting in the middle of the ring. It is quite incredible,” her husband Ola said to the newspaper. Image caption elieve the ring fell into a sink back in 1995 and was lost in vegetable peelings that were turned into compost or fed to their sheep. “I had given up hope,” Mrs Paahlsson told Dagens Nyheter, adding she wanted to have the ring adjusted to fit her. “Now that I have found the ring again I want to be able to use it,” she said. Jesus says there is great joy shared when lost coin or treasure is found. Often the owner is looking for a ring, coin or lost sheep and persists until it is found. Similarly, God keeps on looking forward to ‘finding’ all HIS Children no matter how many years it takes to return to God, Rightful Owner reunited with their beloved treasured prodigal children in Christ Jesus Name.
Jerusalem at the time of Jesus and temple is different from modern times. Acts 15:16 says God and Messiah Yeshua will build a temple on Temple Mount Zion. God intervenes to choose a people for HIS NAME from Gentiles. 15 The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written: 16 “After this Jesus will Return and rebuild David’s fallen tent, Its ruins Jesus will Rebuild and Restore Temple. 17 The rest of mankind will seek the LORD God Yahweh, even all Gentiles who bear MY NAME, says the LORD God Yahweh, WHO does these things’ 18known from long ago. Joel 2:1 says blow the Temple in Mount Zion and announce the coming days of the LORD Yahweh. And Yeshua Rebuilds Mount Zion is significant spiritually as He predicted fall of Temple in His days destroyed, no stone was left standing of that particular Temple. Jesus is Absolutely correct because specific Temple of His day was destroyed.
Tabernacles constructed by Moses, Bezalel and Oholiab in the wilderness Isaiah 33:20 were brought to Mount Zion as a centre of worship of YAHWEH before the days of Jesus, King David and Solomon’s Temples among the many other previously destroyed Temples. Isaiah 33:20. Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a peaceful habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be plucked up, neither shall any of the cords be broken. Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the end of days, that mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established at top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 Many peoples shall go and say: ‘Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob and He will teach us His ways and walk in His paths.’ Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 50:4 In those days and in that time says the LORD, the children of Israel shall come with their children and Judah together; they shall go on their way weeping, and shall seek the Lord their God. 5 They shall inquire concerning Zion with joy on their faces saying ‘Come and join yourselves to the LORD in everlasting Covenant that shall not be forgotten.’ 6 My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place. The real Chabod Shekinah Glory of the LORD Yahweh will reappear again on Mount Zion because God Chooses to do so. Isaiah 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole habitation of mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and shining of flaming fire by night for all the Glory shall be canopy. 6 There shall be a pavilion for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain.
Another significant event in history of Israel is conquest of Jericho led by Joshua. The walls of Jericho falling down, recorded in Joshua 6:1-27 by God’s miracle power. Destruction of Jericho regains their inheritance on return from captivity in Egypt. The people of Israel crossed the Jordan River into the land of Canaan in Joshua 3:14 -17 back to their land of milk and honey God promised Abraham over 500 years in Deuteronomy 6:3, 32:49. After forty years in wilderness desert of Sinai the people of Israel arrived on eastern banks of the Jordan. To take land of Canaan back they started from the city of Jericho in Joshua 6:1 from the walled city. Excavations reveal fortifications featured a stone wall 11 feet high and 14 feet wide with smooth stone slope, angling upward at 35 degrees for 35 feet, joined to massive stone high walls. It was virtually impregnable so ancient warfare used assault or surrounded city and people starved into submission. Invaders weakened the stone walls with fire, tunneling, heap up mountain of earth to serve as a ramp methods of assault took weeks or months, and the attacking force usually suffered heavy losses. Strategy used to conquer city of Jericho was unique as laid out by God for people to march silently around Jericho six days on seventh day march seven day with a loud shout. When people shouted, the walls collapsed and Israel won the victory. God restored the city of Jericho to them im Joshua 6:2, 16. People of God by faith, followed the commands of God so walls of Jericho fell down in Joshua 6:20. In Isaiah 4:5, Chabod or Glory of the LORD, Cloud or pillars of smoke and fire in wilderness shows Presence of God to reassure the children of Israel on their way to Canaan Land out of Egypt. The issue of location is now a major issue and conflict. Yet like any other old cities rebuilt or renamed over the centuries, there is bound to be mix ups of vital details and information lost in translation. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion. So Isaiah 66:1 says, Thus saith the Lord: the heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool; where is the house that ye may build unto Me? And where is the place that may be My resting-place? Zechariah 8:2 ‘Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great fury. 3 Thus saith the LORD: I return to Zion, and will Dwell in the midst of Jerusalem and Jerusalem shall be called City of Truth Holy mountain of LORD of hosts.
Isaiah 28:11 For with stammering lips and with a strange tongue shall it be spoken to this people; 12 To whom it was said: ‘This is the rest, give ye rest to the weary; and this is the refreshing’; yet they would not hear. Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the ancient paths, which is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it. Isaiah 27:12 In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up one by one. 13 That day a Great Trumpet will Sound and those perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship LORD on Holy mountain in Jerusalem.
God Chose Zion HIS desired Habitation in Scripture states many times Zion is correct Temple location. The following passages make clear mention of this and many more verses apart from these cited here can be examined to maintain the same point. The first Psalm of King David as follows says: Psalm 132:1, LORD, remember David and all his sufferings. 2 He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 “I will not enter my house or go to my bed, 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.” 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar. 7 Let us go to HIS Dwelling place, let us worship at HIS footstool saying, 8 Arise, LORD and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might clothe your priests your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.'” 10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one. The whole City of Jerusalem is called tha City of David not just his palace, courtyards and garden grounds or altar built in a Tent for Yahweh. During conquest of Jebusite stronghold Zion now called Jerusalem, Joab the Chief Captain expanded City of David upwards to Millo near rest of the city. And Chief Captain built and repaired ruins damaged by conquerors who took people into exiles. Solomon built his Temple, palaces, gardens on expanded to the Temple Mount area in the City of David.
11 The LORD Swore Oath to David, a sure Oath HE will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. 12 If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.” 13 For the LORD has CHOSEN Zion, HE has desired it for his dwelling, saying, 14 “This is My Resting place forever and ever; here I will Sit Enthroned for I desire it.15 I will bless her with abundant provisions her poor I will satisfy with food.16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy. 17 “Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown. Isaiah 24:23, The moon shall be confounded and sun ashamed for the LORD of hosts will Reign in Mount Zion and Jerusalem, before HIS elders shall be Glory. Psalm 48:2, Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised in the City of our God, His Holy mountain, 3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion the uttermost parts of the north, the City of the Great KING. 4 God in HIS palaces made Himself known as a stronghold. Psalm 87:1 A Psalm of the sons of Korah sang: His foundation is in Holy mountain.2 The LORD loves gates of Zion more than all dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of City of God.
Obadiah 1:17, In Mount Zion there shall be those that escape, and it shall be Holy; and the house of Jacob Israel shall possess their possessions. Joel 3:5, And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as the LORD said among remnant whom the Lord shall call. Joel 4:16 And the Lord shall roar from Zion,and utter His voice from Jerusalem and the heavens and earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge unto His people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain; then shall Jerusalem be Holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. 18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall flow with waters; and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. 19Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah shall be inhabited for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21And I will hold innocent their blood that I have not held as innocent, the LORD Dwells in Zion.
Deuteronomy 12:1 These are the statutes and the ordinances, which ye shall observe to do in the land which the Lord, the God of thy fathers, hath given thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. 2 Ye shall surely destroy all the places, wherein the nations that ye are to dispossess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every leafy tree. 3 And ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and burn their Asherim with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods; and ye shall destroy their name out of that place. 4 Ye shall not do so unto the Lord your God. 5 But unto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even unto His habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come; 6 and thither ye shall bring your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the offering of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill-offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock; 7there shall eat before the LORD your God and you shall rejoice in all you put your hand to and your household the LORD your God has blessed you.
Psalm 87:2-3 says, The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are said of the City of God.” Zion is synonymous with city of God, and it is a place that God loves. Zion is Jerusalem. Mount Zion is the high hill on which David built a citadel. It is on the southeast side of the city. The word Zion occurs over 150 times in the Bible. It essentially means “fortification” and has the idea of being “raised up” as a “monument.” Zion is described both as the city of David and the city of God. As the Bible progresses, the word Zion expands in in spiritual meaning so Zion and Jerusalem refer to the same City, indicating physical and spiritual location of the HOLY City. The word Zion means ‘marked’ as ‘distinctive’ with inner qualities distinguishing Jews as Chosen ‘people who dwell in covenant with God’s unique spiritual traits, terms and conditions.
The first mention of Zion in the Bible is in 2 Samuel 5:7, “David captured the fortress of Zion to build the City of David.” Zion originally ancient Jebusite fortress in the City of Jerusalem. After David’s conquest of the fortress, Jerusalem became a possession of Israel. The royal palace was built there and Zion Jerusalem became the seat of power in Israel’s kingdom. When Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, meaning of Zion City expanded further to include the temple area in Psalm 2:6, 48:2, 11:12, 232:13. In the prophecy of Jeremiah 31:6, “Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.” In Isaiah 40:9, Old Testament Zion name for the City of Jerusalem includes the land of Judah according to Jeremiah 31:12. The nation of Israel as a whole is called Zion in Zechariah 9:13. The word Zion in theology in a spiritual sense in Scripture means figuratively to Israel as the people of God in Isaiah 60:14. In New Testament, Zion is God’s spiritual KINGDOM for believers to come “to Mount Zion and to the City of the living God in the heavenly Jerusalem as stated in Hebrews 12:12. Peter, said quoting Isaiah 28:16, Christ is Cornerstone of Zion: “See, I lay a Stone in Zion chosen precious Cornerstone and one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame in 1 Peter 2:6.
Mount Zion as a geographical area currently is a center of dispute. The Bible is clear, one day, Zion will be the Sole Possession of the Lord Jesus and Zion the nation and City will be restored. “Awake, awake, Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion, Clothe yourself in your beautiful garments O Jerusalem, the HOLY City for the spiritually uncircumcised unclean will no longer come into you says Isaiah 52:1. The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you and all who despise you will bow down at your feet and call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel according to Isaiah 60:14. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion. David’s declaration in 1 Chronicles 22:1, says David in the Psalms state Zion is for God as the reserved place where the LORD God would dwell. The temple was located at Zion from time David brought the Ark into Jerusalem until they took it to temple on Mount Moriah. The Temple belonged at Zion but due to wars fought by David Ark was often hidden in secret locations in Scripture as Mount Zion the highest point of elevation than Mount Moriah.
In 2 Samuel 6:16 And it was so, as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart. 17 They brought in ark of the Lord and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Nahmanides in Jerusalem In the year 1322 Estori Farhi was in Jerusalem; and his “Kaftor wa-Ferah” (ch. vi.) gives archeological description of city (Eng. transl. in “Itinerary” of Benjamin of Tudela, ii. 393; German, in Zunz, “G. S.” ii. 268). According to Farhi, Jerusalem was three parasangs long. He mentions the entrance to the Cave of Hezekiah (B. K.16b), within the walls of Jerusalem to the north; the tent erected by David for Ark, in a place called “David’s Temple,” south of Mt. Moriah (comp. “Yihus ha-Abot,” p. 25); northwest of this was a place where a synagogue and the Jewish quarter (see David b. Zimrah, Responsa, No. 633). The city of Jerusalem is, according to him, higher than Mt. Moriah and higher than the synagogue.
In 2 Samuel 5:4-9 King David takes stronghold of mount Zion where he was mocked that the blind and lame shall not come in there. The spiritually blind and lame cannot come into the HOUSE of God metamorphoricaly speaking. All must know God for themselves and His Words in Scripture. 1 Chronicles 11:4 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem the same is Jebus and Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. 5 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David: ‘Thou shalt not come in hither.’ Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion; the same is the city of David. 6 And David said: ‘Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain.’ And Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and was made chief. 7 David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore they called it the city of David. 8And he built the city round about, from Millo even round about; and Joab repaired the rest of the city. Isaiah 33:5 the Lord is exalted, for He dwelleth on high; He hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness. The House of God will stand at the HOLY site that is most suited for prayer as it is written: “God’s Eyes are opened towards HIS HOUSE night and day, towards the place HIS NAME IS, to HEAR the prayer Your servant will pray toward this place. And You shall hear the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Israel that they will pray toward this place.” Isaiah 33:20 Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings your eyes shall see Jerusalem a Peaceful Habitation, a tent shall not be removed, the stakes shall never be plucked up, neither shall the cords be broken ever again.
This information locates Zion to conclude though previous temples located at Zion were destroyed, 2 Samuel 5:8 refers to a landmark water shaft. “Water shaft” is rendered “quarry tunnel stretching beside Temple for washing and purification required” in the 1917 Jewish Publication Society Tanakh. Scripture notes other landmarks located with certainty today to establishes the western boundary of the City of David in ancient times is the water channel built by King Hezekiah. And in 2 Chronicles 32:30, Hezekiah stopped the upper spring waters of Gihon and brought them straight down on the western side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of messenger of good tidings, that announce PEACE, the harbinger of good tidings, announces salvation; saying to Zion: ‘Your God Reigns!’ 8 The watchmen lift up their voice, together to sing; for they shall see, eye to eye, the Lord returning to Zion. 9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted His people, He hath redeemed Jerusalem. 10 the LORD has made bare His HOLY ARM in the eyes of all the nations and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
The Millo in this ancient map in Hebrew: המלוא was a place in Jerusalem first mentioned in 2 Samuel 5:9 and in Chronicles and Kings. It is part of the expansion of the City of David built by the Jebusites before conquest by David with Joab and Israelites. Joab specifically expanded David’s City into Millo nearby Solomon’s Temple. Millo was rebuilt and repaired by Solomon. There is archaeological and historical site of Millo from ancient Israel and ruins of Millo as Stepped Stone Structure uncovered by Kathleen Kenyon and Eilat Mazar connected Millo to the recently discovered large stone structure. Excavation by Eilat Mazar directly above the Stepped Stone Structure shows this structure connects and supports the large Stone Structure. Mazar presents evidence that the Large Stone Structure was an Israelite royal palace in continuous use from tenth century as part of a single, massive royal palace. This biblical reference to Millo as the House of Millo in II Kings 12:21 and II Chronicles 24:25 was the place where King Joash lived until 799 BC. Millo is derived from “fill” in Hebrew milui). The stepped stone support structure is built of fills. In Samuel, Millo is mentioned as the boundary of King David’s construction while building up the City of David after capture of Jerusalem from Jebusites. Millo is translated literally as Landfill or supporting terraces.
Hezekiah’s repair of the Millo is mentioned in repairs to military fortifications, and several scholars agree connection to military tower citadel or significant part of a wall. It was embankment flattened slope between Ophel and the Temple Mount. Isaiah 46:13 God brings near HIS righteousness not far off and HIS salvation shall not delay and WILL place salvation in Zion for Israel HIS Glory. Amos 9:11 In that day GOD WILL I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old. 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom and all nations, upon whom My NAME is called, says the Lord WHO does this. 2 Chronicles 5:2 Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all heads of the tribes, the princes of the fathers’ houses of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the Covenant of the Lord out of the City of David in Zion. 2 Samuel 6:16, As ark of the LORD came into the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord and despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent David pitched for it and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Acts 15:16 After these things I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen, and will rebuild its ruins, and will set it up, 17 so that the residue of men may seek out the Lord, and all the nations on whom my name is invoked, saith [the] Lord, who does these things 18 known from eternity.
Lower Eastern Hill City of David
Mount Zion name of the Jebusite fortified city on the lower part of ancient Jerusalem’s Eastern Hill, known as City of David where he built his palace but Zion extends outwards to include: According to the 2 Samuel Mount Zion the site of the Jebusite fortress called the “stronghold of Zion” that was conquered by King David then renamed and partially rebuilt by him as the “City of David”, where he erected his palace, courtyards. Upper Eastern Hill Temple Mount was First Temples and Tabernacles precede Solomon’s Temple erected at the top of the Eastern Hill on “Mount Zion.” After the conquest of the Jebusite city, its build-up area expanded northward towards uppermost part of the Eastern Hill. The highest point became site of Solomon’s Temple. The identification of pre-Israelite Jebusite and Israelite towns on the Eastern Hill is based on existence of only one perennial water source in the area, the Gihon Spring and archaeological excavations revealing sections of the Bronze Age and Iron Age city walls and water systems. The “Mount Zion” mentioned in Isaiah 60:13- 14 and in Book of Psalms and First Book of Maccabees (c. 2nd century BCE) to refers to top of the hill Temple Mount.
Western Hill Mount Zion
