The great Temple was built over a natural spring that supplied millions of gallons of water for the Temple animal sacrifices. However, the exact moment the Messiah died there was a great EARTHQUAKE under the Temple, which ripped the great curtain guarding the Holy of Holies in two:

Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split (St. Matthew 27:51).

At the same time, the natural spring under the Temple was completely destroyed by the EARTHQUAKE to cut off the water supply to the Temple:

 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Joshua, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of Elohim" (St. Matthew 27:54).

The Prophet Zechariah predicted that earthquake at least 500 years before it happened:

And in that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south (Zechariah 14:4).

The account of the massive earthquake that forever altered the topography of Jerusalem is completely missing from the writings of Josephus. It was only King Herod's massive stone construction that prevented the Temple from completely collapsing.

The unbelieving Jews patched up the torn curtain, and they managed to obtain water from another source in order to continue with their animal sacrifices!

The Temple was patched up after the 30 AD earthquake, but completely demolished in 70 AD

Prior to his death and Resurrection, the Jewish Messiah warned his disciples that the Temple would be utterly destroyed. The Roman armies surrounding Jerusalem was the sign that the destruction of the city was near:

When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those which are in Judea run to the mountains (St. Matthew 24:15).

The disciples who were in Judea and Jerusalem at that time heeded his warming, and they all escaped alive before the siege commenced.

siege of Jerusalem.

Not one Christian perished in the siege because they heeded the words of the Messiah to "run to the mountains" when they saw Jerusalem surrounded by armies.

Only one history of that momentous event has survived because Emperor Jesus Constantine destroyed most of the history of the ancient world.


Roman soldiers set fire
to the Temple.

The Jews put up a fanatical defense of the city, expecting their "Messiah" to come out of the sky and rescue them at the last minute. It was a very vain hope:

Now as soon as the army had no more people to slay or to plunder, because there remained none to be the objects of their fury, (for they would not have spared any, had there remained any other work to be done), Caesar gave orders that they should now demolish the entire city and temple, but should leave as many of the towers standing as were of the greatest eminency; that is, Phasaelus, and Hippicus, and Mariamne; and so much of the wall as enclosed the city on the west side. This wall was spared, in order to afford a camp for such as were to lie in garrison, as were the towers also spared, in order to demonstrate to posterity what kind of city it was, and how well fortified, which the Roman valor had subdued; but for all the rest of the wall, it was so thoroughly laid even with the ground by those that dug it up to the foundation, that there was left nothing to make those that came thither believe it had ever been inhabited. This was the end which Jerusalem came to by the madness of those that were for innovations; a city otherwise of great magnificence, and of mighty fame among all mankind. (Josephus Book VII).

Titus Flavius Caesar succeeded his father, Titus Flavius Vespasianus, as commander of the Roman legions in Judea. Titus was anxious to spare the Temple, but the soldiers torched the building. The Temple was covered in gold so the melted gold seeped down into the massive stones.

Roman commander Titus was anxious to save the Temple, but the soldiers put it to the torch. The gold melted and ran down the massive stones.

As result, Jewish captives were forced to pull down every single stone of the Temple.

They fulfilled their Messiah's prophecy exactly as he predicted!


The Arch of Titus—a monument in
stone to the fulfillment of prophecy.

In 82 AD, a triumphal arch was constructed in Roma to commemorate the capture and complete destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies. It was a monument in stone to the fulfillment of Patriarch Israel's prophecy, made over 1700 years previously:

The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from his feet, until Shiloh comes; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be (Genesis 49:10).

Even the puppet Herodian dynasty was swept away, and Judea became a desolate Roman colony. During the succeeding centuries, several attempts were made to rebuild the Temple, but none of them succeeded. The vast Temple Mount lay empty until the reign of Emperor Justinian.

Emperor Justinian built a wooden church on the site of the great Temple

Emperor Justinian built a rectangular wooden church, called the New Church of the Theotokos, on the vacant Temple site. The Christians in Jerusalem would not permit him to erect a STONE structure, so he compromised by erecting a large wooden building dedicated to his "Virgin Goddess."

Emperor Justinian (483–565).
Emperor from 527 to 565.

Emperor Justinian was determined to restore the Roman Empire, which had begun to divide after the disastrous reign of the Constantinian dynasty.

He was also a prolific builder. Before that time, Christian churches were not constructed of stone, but he built the huge Hagia Sofia in Constantinople out of stone.


The Temple Mount was completely empty
until the reign of Emperor Justinian.

Back then, it was a cornerstone of Christianity that the Temple Mount should remain in ruins. Justinian's new church was the first structure that occupied the site since its destruction by the Romans in 70 AD. Additionally, it was not a small structure because it could seat about 3,000 people.

An icon of the Theotokos.

Emperor Justinian knew the Scriptures that "not one stone would be left upon another" in the Temple Mount.

He voided that by constructing a rectangular wooden structure named the New Church of the Theotokos.

In 543, it was dedicated to the "Virgin Mary" as the "Mother of God."


The New Church of the Theotokos
was built entirely of wood.

That church was the earliest incarnation of what later became known as the stone Al-Aqsa mosque:

The Christian pilgrim, Bishop Arculf of France, who visited the country in 680, toward the end of Muawiyah's reign, related that a large house of prayer made of wood stood at the southern end of the Temple Mount. This was the earliest incarnation of Al-Aqsa. Thereafter Abd-Al Malik built the Dome of the Rock and Al-Walid rebuilt Al-Aqsa in stone. (Ben-Dov, In the Shadow of the Temple, p. 280).

Thousands of Christians visited Jerusalem during that time, but it is beyond belief that only a few accounts of the topography of Jerusalem have survived.

In 637, the New Church of the Theotokos was converted into a mosque

Caliph Omar was the second Caliph of the Mohammedan dynasty. He is infamous as the man who destroyed the great library at Alexandria in Egypt. Mohammed is the Arabic name for APOLLYON, so he was just obeying the commands of his master Baalzebub.

Caliph Omar turned the
Nea Church into a mosque.

In 637, Caliph Omar turned the New Church of the Theotokos into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

It remained a wooden structure until Caliph Abd Al-Malik rebuilt it in stone.

That was the second fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation prophecy.


The Al-Aqsa mosque has occupied
the Jewish Temple site since 637.

As a smokescreen or diversion to hide the fact that the Abomination of Desolation had been set up in the former Holy Place, another building was constructed on the Temple Mount.

In 688, Caliph Abd Al-Malik constructed
the Dome of the Rock.

In 690, stone-hearted Caliph Abd Al-Makik built the Dome of the Rock, and he rebuilt the Al-Aqsa mosque in stone.

Pilgrims looking across from Golgotha could see the mosque standing in the former Holy Place.

It was a great visual aid proving that Islam was indeed the Abomination of Desolation.



The Dome of the Rock was built as
a diversion or smokescreen.

Despite the fake Golgotha site of Jesus Constantine, thousands of pilgrims still visited the Empty Tomb on the Mount of Olives. As they looked across at the Temple Mount, they could see the mosque standing in the former Holy Place.

A MOSQUE has occupied the
Resurrection site since 1187.

Hidden behind a Carmelite Convent, a mosque has occupied the Golgotha site since 1187.

That is another Abomination of Desolation.

The Dome of the Rock was deliberately designed and built to obscure and overshadow the Al-Aqsa Mosque.


Viewed from the Mount of Olives, the Dome
of the Rock dominates the skyline.

That was about the best VISUAL AID that the Messiah could provide for his enlightened pilgrims. That was the real reason why the Dome of the Rock was constructed as a diversion or smokescreen.

After the construction of the Dome of the Rock in 690, pilgrims were told that the Dome of the Rock was just a monument to Mohammed, and that it occupied the site of the former Temple.

Muslims MOON heaven and look toward
the underworld when they "pray."

St. John describes the Mark of the Beast in Apocalypse chapter 13:

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads" (Apocalypse 13:16).

St. John was actually shown a vision of Muslims "praying."


The right hand and the forehead must
be engaged in Muslim "prayers."

The Jewish Messiah said that we are to pray in secret and not to be show-offs to impress others:

But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly (Matthew 6:6).

The ground and the underworld is the domain of Satan and his fallen angels who were banished from heaven. In Genesis 3:14, the Serpent was condemned to crawl in the dust forever....Christians are to look up toward heaven when they pray.

The "Holy Sepulchre" is a Holy Fake!

The "Holy Sepuclhre" is a Holy Fake and another Abomination of Desolation:

With Apollyon as his guide,
Emperor Jesus Constantine did contrive,
The Christian Faith to overthrow,
and filling Hades to overflow.
Holy Golgotha's empty tomb,
was substituted for a sepulchre of doom.
It's time to end Apollyon's desolation,
and believe in the world's only salvation,

The Resurrection of Christ is the bedrock and cornerstone of Christianity. It is no wonder that Apollyon, aka Jesus Constantine, should give top priority to destroying that vital doctrine.

The Church of the Holy
The Church of the "Holy
Sepulchre" in Jerusalem.

After the Crusaders captured Jerusalem in 1099, they dug a tunnel under the Church of the "Holy Sepulchre."

About 100 years later a tremendous miracle began happening yearly called the "Lighting of the Holy Fire".

Miraculously, it only happened in the Orthodox section of the church.


The lighting of the Holy Fire in the Church
The lighting of the "Holy Fire" in the
Church of the "Holy Sepulchre."

Here is how that tremendous miracle actually cames to pass every year at the Orthodox Easter.

A small tunnel, big enough to "admit one,"
runs under the "Holy Sepulchre."

The Knights Templar were doing a lot more than "praying" in Jerusalem. They also dug a tunnel under the "Holy Sepulchre."

That facilitated the yearly "Holy Fire" miracle.

Amazingly Pope Gregory IX condemned the "miracle" as a pious fraud and he ordered his Franciscan monks to extinguish it.


View from directly under the "Holy Sepulchre."

Multitudes have been deceived by the so-called "holy places" in Jerusalem, which the Apocalypse rightly calls Sodom and Egypt (Apocalypse 11:8).

Wicked Wall, May 22, 2017.

In May 2017, President Trump visited the Wicked Wall and the Church of the "Holy Sepulchre."

The massive stones are the remnants of the Roman fortress Antonia which the Romans left standing after they completely demolished the Temple.

Apollyon, and his servant Emperor Jesus Constantine, have indeed gone to incredible lengths to deceive the whole world about the Resurrection of Christ—the fundamental Christian doctrine.

The Jewish Messiah alone is the STONE!

Early Christians fully understood the symbolism of the demolished Temple, because JEHOVAH alone is referred to as a STONE hundreds of times in the Holy Bible. That is why they did not build stone churches until after the year 1000 AD.

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: an Elohim of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he (Deuteronomy 32:4).

For who is Elohim save JEHOVAH? or who is a rock save Elohim? (Psalm 18:31).

Daniel the Prophet told King Nebuchadnezzar that the Stone cut out of the mountain was indeed JEHOVAH himself:

You (Nebuchadnezzar) watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth (Daniel 2:34-35).

Saint Paul—a Hebrew of the Hebrews—reiterated that Truth when he wrote that Christ was the Rock:

And they all drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ (I Corinthians 10:4).

The Exodus from Egypt is an end of the world scenario; Pharaoh and his followers are the inhabitants of Vanity Fair at the end of time.

Pharaoh Ramses II, died by
drowning in 1533 BC.

10 times JEHOVAH demanded that Pharaoh let the people go, and 10 times he hardened his obstinate heart.

Finally, at the last plague, his heart was as hard as the stones of the Great Pyramid.

In a suicidal charge, he entered the Red Sea in pursuit of the Israelites, and he was drowned in the mighty waters.


Pharaoh and his chariots were
drowned in the Red Sea.

The Jewish Rock promised to continue doing heart surgery until the end of time:

And I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26).

St. Peter was very explicit about who was the real Rock of Ages:

Wherefore it is said in the scripture: Behold I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious. And he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded (I St. Peter 2:6, Douay-Rheims Version).
