Shabbat Shalom to our Family around the world

Thank You

Once again I would like to on take this moment and thank each and every one of you who have made a donation or bought a book or DVD from sightedmoon.com. Those $5 and $10 donations all add up and along with those who have given more, you have made it possible for James to be in Burundi and teach these people who are so eager to learn the truth that has not been taught to them.

Because of your generosity, you have also been able to help with the work in the Philippines. Over the years people come and learn and then go on to other teachers or other studies. They take what they have learned here and then leave.

But some; a few, like you, come and learn and see the value that is presented here each week. The biblical perspective that comes from keeping the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. You stay and glean more and more as time passes. And you have supported this work so that we can support those in Burundi and in the Philippines and our own work here around the world. Thank you.

Mat 10:40-42 “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”

Your donations and our work are an investment into the Kingdom of Yehovah. With your support, we are teaching many to keep the Sabbath and Holy Days and Sabbatical years. We are teaching new people how to understand the calendar and when the barley is Aviv and why we sight the moon and do not use the conjunction. Only those people who keep the Torah will be in that Kingdom and in order to keep the Torah, you must know when the Holy Days are and keep them at the proper time. The same goes for the Sabbatical years.

This is what you’re investing in when you make a donation to sightedmoon.com. No matter the size, we are all investing in raising the wheat so that it is ready when the reapers come.

If you are not already helping us with a small monthly donation then please look over what we have done with the donations we have received. We have a 10% stake in a vineyard that we help to build in Israel. The fruit from the Philippines and Burundi is unbelievable with the growth that is going on there despite the setbacks that come. Your donations have produced the videos that we have shared for free on our web site since 2013. They have paid for mine and James’ speaking engagements around the world. And they have kept this web site going even when it was hijacked back in 2013.

If you would like to help then you can go to sightedmoon.com and make a one-time donation or a monthly donation on our tab there. You can send cheque or money orders to:

Joseph Dumond or sightedmoon at

P.O. Box # 21007 RPO
150 First St.
Orangeville Ontario
L9W 4S7

And we have just learned that you can also send us a donation through your email from your bank.

I also want you to know that your donations do not go to support me and my personal life. I continue to dig ditches for a living, getting up at 4 AM each day and coming home each workday at 5 each night. But I am very pleased that Yehovah has allowed me to be a part of this work at this time in this end of the age. And the value of this is priceless.

I am not able to thank you enough for what you have helped us to do but I do thank you.

Please read what is happening right now in Burundi from James in his report below.

Burundi Report


Well today is Tuesday and I have been here for a full week now. It has gone by very fast and it all seems like a blur. For the past two days I have been stuck in my room writing lessons for this trip. It started out last week teaching about the Tabernacle and before I knew it (no exaggeration) each time Telesphore and I go out in his truck, people come running up to the truck to say hello. The teaching is taking off so well and people are hungry for more.  Sorry Joe, this must seem like the complete opposite except when you are in Israel. Anyway I finished the Foundations Training book this morning and then we went for lunch down by the lake. During lunch I taught Telesphore and the other Bishop about the hidden mysteries within the first verse in Genesis and how it ties into the Tabernacle.  Always teaching here.

On our way back we ran into the President of the National bank here and Telesphore introduced me to him because he has been following all my lessons and is going to be there tomorrow when I teach as well. He thanked me for telling the truth and for opening his eyes. It is very humbling being here when everyone knows you only for you, simply because of what YHVH gave me to teach.

Last year they had a man come over from the USA who wanted to teach and he spent over a million dollars, I am told, paid for everything and all the best, and when he left nobody cared or remembered what he taught. Apparently they get a lot of Christian pastors who come here and teach Christian crap that is empty and gives nothing in return. For the first time today when the cleaning lady came into my room to clean, I was still working on material. She saw the cover of the lesson book I wrote, then she looked at me, then back at it and then asked if I was a Prophet. I replied, just a man with the truth nothing more.

They are asking to take all the material that I have written and have it become part of the school system so the children up to University level will know the truth, and they hope YHVH will reverse the curse that everyone knows is over this country. Sometime next week I will be teaching at Telesphore’s home where he has invited some students from the University, who know all my material from last year, want to ask me a bunch of questions. First though I am supposed to teach on the tabernacle before that happens. Lots of stuff happening, almost too much to remember.

This morning Telesphore and his staff were printing up material, actually the bullet list you gave me, Joe and they went and gave one to everyone in Parliament, all of the Prime Minister’s staff as well. They will be giving it to the President as soon as we can get i to see him as well.  That list is easy to teach, easy to read and covers all the stuff needed to know towards the future, glad I have it to use.

There really is not a lot to report right now as I have been, like I said, in the room for a couple of days working but tomorrow I teach at a local church, then we head up north for a couple of days and return on Sunday afternoon. I am glad Telesphore is renting another vehicle, with no shocks to speak of in his truck, and all the holes in the roads around here, I would be dead before we got to our destination. Oh well, time to review material for tomorrow and then take it easy until the morning.

I want to thank everybody out there who is actually supporting this trip in prayers or financially. This is the best investment anyone could make into people who are not ashamed to admit when they are wrong, and would rather repent, then go another day with YHVH. Truly an experience I will never forget. May YHVH bless all of you, and some I hope to see in Israel for Sukkot.

Getting Back to Eden

Many of you have now kept your first Sabbatical year and let the land rest. You Obeyed Yehovah and now you are eagerly watching your garden to see if you can see any blessings from it.

I would like to share my experience this year with you.

I have planted roses along the north side of the Garden to form an arbor which will give us something to look at when the garden is not always attractive.

To protect the roses from the severe winter I collected all our leaves and all the many neighbour’s leaves which were in bags and I placed them two high to cover the roses for the winter.

In the Spring I took all those leaves and spread them over the whole garden. I did not rototill them under. I left them on top of the soil and then I planted my potatoes and tomatoes and zucchini and cabbages. All I did was pull the leaves back and plant my plant and then pushed the leaves back up against the plant. As I removed the leaves to plant, I found literally hundreds of worms right below the leaves in the top of the soil.

We have posted before how the bacteria and the worm castings (poop) is at the top of the soil and these are the ingredients your vegetables thrive on. This is why the Amazon jungles thrive and the soil is so rich. But when they slash and burn the forests, there is no longer any leaves for the worms or bacteria to eat and then they die. After a few years, the soil becomes lethargic and no longer produces, so the farmers burn another section of land to get a few more years of rejuvenated soil.

By not rototilling the soil, we leave all the great nutrients at the top of the soil for the plants to grow upon. And this was the whole idea in the video on Back to Eden.

Another benefit of not rototilling the leaves under is that it keeps the weeds out. I had a section of the garden that I did rototill because it had many bumps and hills from the compost pile I had put back into the garden. But I never had time to spread leaves over it and I decided I would be able to weed that section. As it turns out I did not have time and the weeds are currently winning. But right beside this area that had the leaves, there are no weeds.

Another benefit of leaving the leaves on the top like this is that it prevents soil erosion. With the torrential rains that come (due to climate change; no due to Yehovah sending his curses of Lev 26), the leaves prevent the driving rains from washing away the soil and the plants.

Recently the robins discovered the bounty of worms under the leaves and have been having buffet harvest. The only problem with doing this type of gardening is that the worms eat the leaves, requiring me to add another layer now before all the robins eat my workers.

Until the day Adam and Eve sinned, there is no record that Adam till the ground. It was not until after they were put out of the Garden that they began to till the soil.

Gen 3:23-24 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

If you go into any forest you will see the soil is not tilled and the trees are not rotated like what the farmers say you must do to the crops each year. No in the forest the soil is always being made by the bacteria and the worm castings.

Now let me show you some of the results in my garden.

On the left side of the picture are my grape vines. There are three rows of potatoes that are doing phenomenal and directly in front of you are the tomato plants that are super big and lush as you can see.  All of this was mulched with leaves and not rototilled.

In this next picture, you can see the mulch that is left. The worms and bacteria have eaten most of it. What was about a foot think is now only about an inch. But you can see that there are almost no weeds amongst the zucchini, cabbage, and summer squash. On the left hand side are my roses and you can see the grass clippings that I added to them last night.

Now looking the other way over the top of the cabbage patch you can see the area that I never had time to mulch up and the weeds have taken over. Amongst those weeds are my beets and beans, and raddishes, and spinach and I forget what else.

And this is again looking over the section that was not mulched and these are my  beans with the red flowers.

Now let me leave you with two shots of our Grapes this year. Again Yehovah has blessed us.


Where is Eden And how does it Relate to the Temple

In 2007 At Shavuot I went to eastern Trukey to visit the Ark of Noah. It was only after my return home that year that I discovered something.

When I was in Turkey, we went to see the Anchor stones in Kazan. Near by was a spring that busted out of the ground and flowed down the Aras valley past where the Ark of Noah was.

I tasted the water, and it was very bitter. Gilgamesh wrote in infamous Gilgamesh Epic that he had to cross the land of bitter lakes to find Noah.

While I was standing at this gushing spring I was thinking of how the people dispersed from the Ark. I realized that the bible says in

Genesis 11: 1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.

I know from reading that these people followed the river in order to water their herds. Along the road, we took to get to the Ark and the same one we took to leave is the Murat River which was just north west of the spring I mentioned above, near the anchor stones. This spring is the one that feeds the Aras river which flowed to the east. This Murat River is a tributary of the mighty Euphrates River, and it flowed to the west. It is this river that the children of Noah followed as they left from this area where the ark of Noah is today found.

When you follow the Euphrates, as it flows west through Turkey, it takes a turn southward. It is at this point if you look on a map that you can see a number of interesting towns just before the river crosses the border and goes into Syria.

Where the Euphrates flows towards the east in Syria, there is a tributary that flows from the north. It is called Balikh. At the northern tip of the Balikh River is a town called Urfa today in Turkey. It used to be known as Ur of the Chaldeans. How do we know this is Ur of the Chaldeans and not the Ur down near the Persian Gulf where most commentators say it is? If we read Genesis 11 we get to see Abrams Ancestry.

Genisis 11:10 This is the genealogy of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood. 11 After he begot Arphaxad, Shem lived five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. 12 Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah. 13 After he begot Salah, Arphaxad lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters. 14 Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber. 15 After he begot Eber, Salah lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters. 16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg. 17 After he begot Peleg, Eber lived four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters. 18 Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu. 19 After he begot Reu, Peleg lived two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters. 20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug. 21 After he begot Serug, Reu lived two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters. 22 Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor. 23 After he begot Nahor, Serug lived two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. 24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah. 25 After he begot Terah, Nahor lived one hundred and nineteen years, and begot sons and daughters. 26 Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
27 This is the genealogy of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran begot Lot. 28 And Haran died before his father Terah in his native land, in Ur of the Chaldeans. 29 Then Abram and Nahor took wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah.

Arphaxad as we have read in other News Letters was the father of the Chaldeans as Josephus has said. In the area of Ur are other villages or ruins that were called Serug after Abrahams Great Grandfather, and Nahor after Abrahams Grandfather, Terah after Abrahams Father, Today known as Til-Turahi, and Harran after Abrahams Brother.

North of these villages is also Nemrud dagh or Mount Nimrod. West of these villages is another town called Cinar. Which is a derivative of Shinar. There is also a river called Sinjar.

Genesis 12:4 So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5 Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan.

While I am here at this moment let me show you a prophecy. In Zechariah 5 we read of the Woman in an ephod. The word woman and the word fire in Hebrew is differentiated by a dot in the Masoretic text. The Object that Zechariah is describing as a flying scroll is none other than today’s modern missiles. The evil woman inside is a nuclear device or evil fire, not an evil woman. The two women pushing it through the air are two fire propelled rockets.

Once you see all this then know that the place where they build a house for these is in Shinar, here in Southern Turkey and Northern Syria. You can read more on this subject at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=82

This is the area that Saddam Hussien is alleged to have moved his weapons from Iraq to Syria. This is also the area that Israel has attacked and destroyed a nuclear facility being built by Syria. Strange how the bible tells us exactly where they will build houses to house the missiles in. That is in Shinar. Syria.


Getting back to the purpose of this News Letter. In Gen 2:14 we are told that one of the rivers that came from Eden was the river Perath. In Sumerian it is called Buranun . Even today you can find this river called by the Arabs Firat which is harking back to Perath. The Greeks are the ones to call this river the Euphrates,
( Eu-Firat-es). It begins in Eastern Turkey North west of Lake Van, Near Erzerum.

Also In Gen. 2:14 we are told of the river Hiddekel. In Sumerian it was Idiglat. This is translated into Hebrew and is called the Tigris, which begins in the high Zargos Mountains south west of Lake Van. It has its source in the small Lake called Hazar Golu. Which I was able to visit while in Turkey. Other major tributaries are the Greater Zab, the Lesser Zab, and the Diyala.

Mesopotamia is another Greek word and means as you already know between the two rivers. That is the land between the Tigris and the Euphrates.

Yes, I am about to show you where the Garden of Eden is. But to do this we must understand what the names of the four rivers are. We have now shown you two.

To learn the third we go to;

Gen 2:13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush.

So here is the statement I was thinking about at the beginning. The whole land of Cush. Cush and his families did not go to the west with the rest of Noah’s children. Where is the land of Cush? Most modern scholars are extremely bad at researchers, for they right away say that this is Africa, and as such this next river must be the Nile. Or they come up with some other extreme line of reasoning. Others say it is the Gihon Spring in Jerusalem. They are superimposing their own narratives into this description.

The identity of the Gihon is a little more difficult to establish but it has to be identified with the River Araxes whose tributaries rise in the mountains north of Lake Van and Lake Urmia ( Also Near Erzerum). One of the tributaries is the Aras river which starts near the Anchor Stones. They flow together and flow down to join the main channel, known as the Kur, which empties into the Caspian Sea south of Baku.

The name Araxes, which is more recently referred to as the Araks or Aras, and the name Gihon obviously bear no resemblance to each other. This is a clear case of name change which has taken place in the past. It is not very hard to figure out that the name Aras or Araks which the river is called today, changed not too long ago.

During the Islamic invasion of the Caucasus in the eighth century A.D., stretches of this river were still called Gaihun. Before the Gaihun became known simply as the Aras, the Persian of the last century referred to this river as the Jichon-Aras.

Interestingly enough you will find the Gihon Aras in early biblical dictionaries and commentaries dating from the Victorian times. Today this crucial piece of information has apparently been forgotten and you would be hard pressed to find a modern work on Genesis which links the Gihon with the Aras. So much for the modern scholarship!

The name Gihon is from Strongs # 1518 primitive root to burst forth, just as it did near the anchor stones in Kazan, as said previously.

Scriptures say as quoted above that this river Gihon flowed all through the land of Cush. If we look in Iran at the city of Tabriz, then go north west to the area near the town of Ahar in Iran, there is a mountain there called to this day Kusheh Dagh – the Mountain of Kush.

From this understanding, we can now learn that although many of Noah’s family migrated to the west following the Euphrates River system, some such as Cush went east and settled here in these Mountains. It would be here that those things that Noah had taught would become perverted and twisted with those who would soon start to follow Nimrod, a mighty hunter of men.

We have now identified three of the four rivers mentioned that flowed out of Eden.

The fourth will be a little harder but once you see how languages evolve and names are changed, it should be very plane from then on.

Pishon from Strongs # 6376 from 6335 dispersive – to spread. This is not much help.

We have the Euphrates in the North West corner. We have the Tigris in the south west corner. We now have the Gihon located in the North East corner. Which leaves us looking for a river in the South East corner of Eden.

In the Hebrew language, the consonant P can be a vowel U in another language. Sh can change to s or z and o to u.What I am explaining here may seem far fetched to those who

What I am explaining here may seem far fetched to those who are not accustomed to the variants of languages, but an example is found in the modern name of Pisdeli, a mound on the southern shore of Lake Urmia. This mound derives from the ancient Iranian toponym Ush or Uash which was in common use throughout the general region of southern Urmia. Recently discovered contemporary texts confirm that Pisdeli was ancient Uishteri (demonstrating the well-attested changes from t to d and r to l but, most importantly, also U to P.

When we apply those things just learned above we can take the name Pishon and arrive at the name Uizhun. P to U and sh to z and o to u. In a court of law, I would be said to be leading the witness here. But follow along.

There is a river in this south east corner called Uizhun. It is also known as Kezel Uzun – meaning long gold. The ancient name Uizhun is of unknown meaning and has been colloquialized into the familiar Iranian word Uzun which means dark red or gold. This river on my atlas is called Owzan.

Genesis 2:11 The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.

In recent years gold has been mined in the Ardabil region, a seventh-century gold mine identified at Zarshuyan near Takht E Suleiman. A river which flows from Takht E Suleiman is called Zarrineh Rud which is the Golden River. Zarshuyan is formed by two Persian words; zar which means gold and shuyan means washing as if you would be panning for gold in this area.Also of note here is Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

Also of note here is

Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

Havilah a son of Cush is the one that has the land with much gold. Again more proof that the descendants of Cush did not go west as the other children of Noah did.

The word Eden is from the root meaning pleasure or to live voluptuously, to delight oneself. In Sumerian (edin) and Akkadian (edinu), Eden is to be understood as an open plain or uncultivated land.

The Hebrew word gan used for garden is from the verbal root ganan, to hedge in or protect and also means walled Garden or enclosed park.

Gan Den would be hedged in plain or protected plain.

We read in Genesis 2:8 The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. In other words when we are in Eden, if we were to go to the east end we will find a garden. That is a walled in

Genesis 2:8 The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.

In other words when we are in Eden, if we were to go to the east end we will find a garden. That is a walled in plain.

Now having established the four rivers that surround Eden we are directed to look in the east end of Eden to find a plain or plateau that is hedged in or protected.

When you look on a map and see Tabriz in Iran you can clearly see the four rivers around this area but in the area of Tabriz, you can see high mountains that are on the north and south and converge south of the town of Ardabil east of Tabriz. Take a look at this Google map and zoom in and out to see the mountains around Tabriz.

I also want to show you the mountains around Tabriz and then have you ponder why Yehovah said he made Adam of the dust of the ground.

Gen 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

The word “man” is Adam and is from this word.

H120     ‘a^da^m     aw-dawm’

From H119ruddy, that is, a humanbeing (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.): – X another, + hypocrite, + common sort, X low, man (mean, of low degree), person.

Now I would like you to look at the mountains near Tabriz and consider which type of clay Adam was made from.

In the Center of Tabriz is a Garden with water and like the Taj Mahal, it is designed with Eden in mind with the four rivers in the four corners of the garden.

To the far east end of this garden there is a mountain pass here, which as most people know, a mountain pass is also known as a gate. Here then is the gate through which Adam and Eve were sent. And to the North East of this gate is today, the land of Noqdi, which is the land of Nod to where Cain went after he killed Able.

This plain area between the two mountain ranges which protect it also has a river which flows through it and down to Lake Urmia.

You can now see that the area of Noahs Ark and the Anchor Stones in Kazan are near the western edge of Eden near Mt Ararat. The Eastern end where the Garden was and where the man was placed in the area of Tabriz. Outside this eastern gate is Nod. You can read more details on this at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=26

The point of sharing this information with you was not to show you where the Garden of Eden was, although for some this is interesting enough. No the point of this News Letter was to show you the relationship between the Garden of Eden and the Temple.

We have just read some scriptures from the beginning of the book in Genesis, now let’s look at the end of the book in Revelation.

Revelation 22:1-5 And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Here we have a river that flows from the Throne of Yehovah. Thi a is very important point to remember. The river flows from under the Throne.

We read in

Ezekiel 47:1-12 1 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. 2 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. 3 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. 4 Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. 6 He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. 7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 Then he said to me: “This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. 12 Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”

Again we have read that a river will flow from the Throne of Yehovah. His throne is to be in His temple and His Temple is to be in Jerusalem. The only place in Jerusalem where there was both a Temple at one time and a potential river is where the Gihon Spring gushes out of the ground. When the Temple was built by Solomon and then restored by Ezra and Nehemia, and the Temple again rebuilt by Herod, they all stood over top of the Gihon spring. It is the only spring for 5 miles in all of Jerusalem. It was around this spring that the Jebusites built their mighty fortification which David conquered. It was this same spring that Hezekiah stopped up and dug the tunnel to the WEST SIDE of the city of David.

For further reading on this subject I refer you to https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=86 and as well, I urge you to buy the book The Temples that Jerusalem forgot at http://www.askelm.com/index.asp

This is must reading for any one who is planning on going to Israel.

Additional reading on the water and the Temple can be had at http://www.askelm.com/temple/index.asp

To the south of the temple and beside it but not touching the Temple was Davids Tomb. In his tomb was the excess gold precious metals brought for the building of the Temple. This too can be read or listened to at http://www.askelm.com/temple/t061001.htm This is connected to the Pishon which had much gold in it.

When we look at the temple we have to the most westerly section of the temple the Holy of Holies. Going to the east, the next room is the Sanctuary, Next is the priestly courtyard in which is the Sea of Bronze that Solomon built, as well as the Altar of Sacrifice. Continuing east is the Outer courtyard and then the Eastern gate. And beyond it the altar for the sin offerings outside the camp.

This is to represent Yehovah’s temple in heaven. Yet the very first place on earth that represented HIs Throne was Eden. The resting place of Noah’s ark was representative of Yehshua even to the point where the Ark was pierced in the side. And He now sits at the right hand side on His throne. So where Noah’s Ark now is in Eastern Turkey would have been near the representation of the Holy of Holies in the days of Adam and Eve.

The Sea of Urmia in Iran would represent the Bronze Sea that Solomon built. The garden area of Eden would be the Preistly court. This is the area of Tabriz, or the Garden of Eden. Once you go through the eastern gate or the mountain pass, I would suspect that there will be a place of sacrifice on a mountain top just past the town of Kheruabad which represents the Cherubim. This place of sacrifice is the symbolic place where Yehshua was sacrificed upon the Mount of Olives directly east of the Eastern gate of the Temple on the east side of the Kidron valley. The Sin sacrifice had to be outside the camp of Israel. It was never done in the Temple area.

There is much more I could say, but I want to get your thoughts process going to see the bigger picture in some of the things we have been talking about.

If you want to read further I would suggest David Rohls book called Legends which is a hard to get out of print book. I also recommend Ernest L Martins site http://www.askelm.com/doctrine/d040301.htm

This news letter although simple in its description of Eden has been raised to a whole other level in the comparison of Eden to the Temple. It is by doing this that we learn new clues about Eden such as an Altar site east of the mountain pass. As well we learn of the gold that is buried beside the Temple when we read and understand that the river in the south east flowed through a land rich in gold and precious metals. Just as Hezekiahs Tunnel now flows through King Davids Tomb with the unused gold from the Temple construction.

You may doubt this but Josephus himself tells us that King Herod entered the Tomb of David from the Kidron Valley and removed 30,000 talents of gold. Interesting indeed!

Yes this is still conjecture on my part. Once these two are found then you’ll know you read it here first. That is the gold and Davids Tomb and the Altar spot in Iran.

    Dear Joseph,
    Thank you for your newsletters They are always so informative. I really enjoy them. It takes time to digest them so to speak. The one on the Garden of Eden is amazing! I so appreciate the research you do into the names both ancient and modern (sumerian, Arabic, Hebrew) of the region(s) and rivers. I love the pictures. Thank you! Thank you!
    Yehovah bless you for researching and telling the truth.
