Underground Ocean Exists Beneath Earth’s Crust

Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. God called the [e]expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. Genesis 1:6-8

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.  Genesis 7:11

A battered diamond found in Brazil confirms a long-held theory: Earth’s mantle holds an ocean’s worth of water.

“It’s actually the confirmation that there is a very, very large amount of water that’s trapped in a really distinct layer in the deep Earth,” said Graham Pearson, lead study author and a geochemist at the University of Alberta in Canada. The findings were published today (March 12) in the journal Nature. LiveScience

Scientists have struggled for years trying to understand the source of Earth’s oceans and the planet’s water. Until recently, the prevailing scientific theory held that icy comets hit the Earth while it was still forming. A discovery last year by geologists seems to prove that the real source of the earth’s water is from deep underground, amazingly similar to the Bible’s account of creation, which described waters below and waters above (Genesis 1:7).

The first clue came in the form of a battered diamond found in Brazil. Graham Pearson, lead study author and a geochemist at the University of Alberta in Canada, discovered the diamond quite by accident while searching for a means of dating the diamonds. Diamonds that have come up from so deep from the earth are usually discarded by diamond miners since they are scarred and discolored, having little commercial value. This diamond contained a rare mineral called ringwoodite, which has never been found on the planet’s surface before. It only forms under extreme pressure and is only found in meteor fragments or is artificially made in laboratories.

The diamond was brought up from the earth’s mantle region, which stretches from 254 to 410 miles deep, by volcanic activity. The mantle, the hot rock layer between the crust and the core, makes up most of the earth’s volume. It has never been explored since it is incredibly deep and inaccessible, and the geothermal energy at that depth would melt any drill bit.

The ringwoodite found embedded in the diamond was 1.5 percent water, contained not as a liquid but as hydroxide ions (oxygen and hydrogen molecules bound together). This suggests there could be a vast store of water in the mantle transition zone.  BreakingNewsIsrael

Literally – Planting the Seeds Of The Third Temple

The new Sanhedrin in Israel has begun planting to provide the agricultural needs of the Third Temple.

“When people think about sacrifices, they think about animals and blood,” Rabbi Weiss said. “But most of the sacrifices were, in fact, from plants, grown around Israel.”

Many of the elements for the daily Temple service were agricultural and specific to the Temple. Semolina was frequently brought as a sacrifice with olive oil. The wine libation came from vines cultivated using a specific method. Rabbi Weiss pointed out that even some minor aspects of the Temple service required vast agricultural resources….

Ever-present on the altar were three piles of wood: the first for burning the animal sacrifices, the second for making coals to burn the incense, and the third for the perpetual altar fire commanded by the Bible.  BreakingNewsIsrael

Plants required for the Temple

There are many different plants required for the Temple, each with its own special conditions. The Sanhedrin’s new Temple forests are dispersed around Israel to provide the specific conditions suitable for each plant. In the Hebron Hills, they planted 30 Cedars of Lebanon and several pomegranate trees. In Kochav Hashachar overlooking the Jordan Valley, they planted half an acre of grapevines surrounded by Cedars. In Shaarei Tikvah in Samaria, cinnamon trees, one of the 11 ingredients in the Temple incense, are ready to be planted. In Itamar, a vineyard of 200 vines has been dedicated to Temple use. Seven date palms were planted in the Western Negev for use in the Shavuot offering.  BreakingNewsIsrael

There is also a modern-day Israeli farmer Guy Erlich growing plants for a future Third Temple.

It started with the Balsamon tree, better known as the Balm of Gilead.

For 1,000 years, ancient Hebrew farmers in this area were the only ones in the world known to cultivate this exotic plant, using it for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. Now Erlich’s biotech adventure is reviving that trade and more.

“He knew how to make out of it most important medication of the ancient world, a perfume that was considered to be the best perfume in the Roman Empire,” Erlich explained. “It says it’s the first ingredient of the incense of the Holy Temple and since the Second Temple period, it says (it was used) as the anointing oil of the kings of Israel. At the sixth century, it disappeared from here, together with the Jewish people.”

Erlich got his first plant from a shoot that was smuggled by a German scientist out of Saudi Arabia and brought to Israel. Oddly enough, the plants he grows are thriving in the intense heat and salty soil on the shores of the Dead Sea. CBN

UPDATE–Joel Richardson: What Is The Sign Of September 23, 2017?

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Rev.  12:1-2

Claims and speculation about September 23, 2017:
This September there will be a unique celestial configuration during and right after Rosh Hashanah (Sep. 20-22).  It will reach its completion on
September 23, 2017, which is a Saturday.

  • The sun passes through Virgo – clothed in the sun.
  • Moon under her feet.
  • A crown of 12 stars – constellation Leo, which is composed of 9 stars. In 2017 three more added (Mercury, Mars, and Venus)
  • Jupiter the king planet will be between the legs of Venus below her womb.

Feasts

These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. Leviticus 23:4

Seven feasts were given to Israel by God.  The 7 feasts are prophetic types, or symbols, that point to the Messiah and which will be fulfilled in Him.

Let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.   Colossians 2:16-17

There are 4 spring feasts and 3 fall feasts.  The spring feasts have been fulfilled, the fall feasts have not been fulfilled.

Spring: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Harvest.
Fall: Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Tabernacles

Rosh Hashanah is not one of the feasts.  The Feast of Trumpets in 2017 is September 21-22.  Associating Rosh Hashanah with the Feast of Trumpets began in the second century A.D. shortly after the destruction of the Temple.

Listen to Joel Richardson’s good and wise words urging caution.

Joel’s post in answer to a question -Rosh Hashanah is not a biblical feast, but Yom Teru’ah or the Feast of Trumpets is a biblical mood. It follows immediately upon Rosh Hashanah. I erred somewhat in emphasizing this.

UPDATE:  In this episode Joel demonstrates the various problems with the false claim that a unique astronomical sign will occur this year on September 23, 2017.
