On the question of the spring [continued]

  Ezekiel 47:1-2 speaks of a spring: ”Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the alter. He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water running out on the right side.”

Hebrew writings, cited in a book by Zev Vilnay, also mention the Gihon Spring area as the place for the future temple:

“At that time a great stream shall flow forth from the Holy Temple and its name is Gihon.”

His book refers to Jewish writings that specifically declare that the Gihon Spring was where the high priest immersed in the spring’s water.

The Temple

It’s not possible to complete a look at the Jews without that Solomon’s Temple or in particular today, the rebuilding of the Third Temple.  Watch carefully the moves in East Jerusalem right now for resettlement, new Jewish housing.

Beneath the Temple mount, it is believed by the other side [the real other side, not the Muslims], a belief that stemmed from the Frankish [read Merovingian] troops [otherwise known as Red Cross Crusaders at the time] that there were great secrets below that mount, currently squatted upon by the Muslims.

If the Muslims can’t be pushed off that mount without creating conditions in western nations where the Muslims are detested so much that a new Crusade by western nations – military again – goes ahead – if that can’t be done, ushering in the Har Megiddon endtimes, then the next best thing is to tunnel under the mount but to do that, you have to get to it first and what better way than to have Jewish housing right up next to it.… More here ...

Coming back to the need to be crystal clear about sources

There is a letter which had much currency on the net around 2006-8, from a Jewish boy who turned Christian and wrote to a Rabbi, who unfortunately went the old-style dogmatist at the kid, before shutting down all communication. I salvaged part of the long series of posts. This is a reply from the maybe 20ish lad to the Rabbi:

Now to your statement that the words “yachid” and “echad” mean the same thing. I have studied this intensively, and I have found that they definitely do not mean the same thing. “Yachid” is used in the Bible when an absolute, indivisible one is intended; this is the word Moses Maimonides used to describe God in his second Principle of Faith.

Other perspectives

Pat’s view below has been pretty much mine too, plus that of many readers but in the light of all the preceding parts on the Jews, it’s now to be taken in a fairly circumspect way:

The reason I recommend this post:

… is that it addresses issues but then there are comments from Wiggia, Cherie and Amfortas, which give the topic an edge.… More here ...

A mixed bag on the topic appears below, sources, snippets I both agree with and don’t.

First, having to be damned careful with quoted sources. This is an error:

Most people today do not seem to know that the Jews are not Israel, but only a part of Judah. The first place in the Bible where the word “Jews” occurs, the Jews are at war against ISRAEL (II Kings 16:6).

That verse has nothing to do with such a war, though 1Kings certainly does. On the tribes:

There were twelve tribes of Israel, originally. But after Solomon died, the nation ISRAEL rejected her king, Rehoboam, son of Solomon, and made Jeroboam, of the tribe of Ephraim, king.

Then the one tribe of Judah split off from the nation Israel and formed a NEW NATION of their own (just as they are trying to do again today), in order to retain Rehoboam as king.

Assyria, Babylon, the Twelve Tribes – in those three empires lie the history of the world and who is in charge today. The symbolism within Modern ‘Israel’ itself is anything but Jewish in the olden sense, it is Masonic Themism writ large, as touched on in Part three.

Churchill continues:

The fact that in many cases Jewish interests and Jewish places of worship are excepted by the Bolsheviks from their universal hostility has tended more and more to associate the Jewish race in Russia with the villainies which are now being perpetrated. This is an injustice on millions of helpless people, most of whom are themselves sufferers from the revolutionary regime.

Now a most important point. [Just a reminder that the source of the Churchill text is here.] Oh so interesting to see how early this sort of thing was going on:

Zionism offers the third sphere to the political conceptions of the Jewish race. In violent contrast to international communism, it presents to the Jew a national idea of a commanding character.
