Wyatt is supposed to have found the Ark (with microscopic imaging camera equipment) under the hill of Golgotha where the blood of Christ apparently fell on the Mercy Seat of the Ark through the cracks made by the earthquake at the moment Christ died. Now, I don't know, I can't say "yes" and I can't say "no", but it is interesting. Apparently, Wyatt and his sons were not able to physically reach the Ark because of the amount of solid rock and rubble as well as Israeli regulations which halted the dig. Mr. Wyatt passed away a few years ago, and I don't know where the situation stands now.

I've met Vendyl and talked with him. He's as nutty as a fruitcake. Believes all sorts of unBiblical things. Particularly as pertaining to Jews. I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with his pretty and somewhat younger Jewish wife.

Vendyl's current wife is certainly not Jewish.

You mean it has been upside down all this time and I didn't know it?

My my, there are a few grand slams in this article. Connect these dots…

“Chapter One in Isaiah,” Jones, who has a photographic memory, quotes. “How has the holy city become a harlot? Righteousness filled the street but now murderers. The ruler is a friend of thieves and the ministers desire bribes.”

“The prophet wasn’t talking about his day – he was talking about now. ‘Therefore, says the L-rd, I will restore them to their beginnings. I will set judges up as at the first, and counselors as in the beginning.’

These two links list the Judges and the Prime Ministers of Israel (print and compare them).

Judges of Israel

Israel’s Prime Ministers

There were 15 Judges and there have been 15 PM slots (some have had two terms), and check them out. Devorah was the 4th Judge and Golda Meir was the 4th different PM (both women).

According to Jones, The Sharon government will soon be history

Oy, and what comes next? Look again at the list of Judges. Samuel was the last Judge before the Kings, Sha’ul and David. Most folks know that David is a type of ruling Messiah, but have you ever heard of Sha’ul being a type of anti-Messiah?
Check out his track record…

Sha’ul was plagued by an evil spirit…

1 Samuel 16:23 Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.

Sha’ul tried to kill David

1 Samuel 19:1 Saul told his son Jonathan and all the attendants to kill David. But Jonathan was very fond of David 2 and warned him, "My father Saul is looking for a chance to kill you. Be on your guard tomorrow morning; go into hiding and stay there.

Daniel 8:25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

And he ordered the execution of the Priests of The L-RD.

1 Samuel 22:17 Then the king ordered the guards at his side: "Turn and kill the priests of the L-RD, because they too have sided with David. They knew he was fleeing, yet they did not tell me." But the king's officials were not willing to raise a hand to strike the priests of the L-RD.

18 The king then ordered Doeg, "You turn and strike down the priests." So Doeg the Edomite turned and struck them down. That day he killed eighty-five men who wore the linen ephod. 19 He also put to the sword Nob, the town of the priests, with its men and women, its children and infants, and its cattle, donkeys and sheep.

“If history repeats itself, the history itself is prophecy, Jones says. “Israel is different from all other nations in a lot of ways, but more than anything else, Israel is the only nation whose history was written before it happened.”…

2 Samuel 12:26 Meanwhile Joab fought against Rabbah of the Ammonites and captured the royal citadel. 27 Joab then sent messengers to David, saying, "I have fought against Rabbah and taken its water supply. 28 Now muster the rest of the troops and besiege the city and capture it. Otherwise I will take the city, and it will be named after me."

29 So David mustered the entire army and went to Rabbah, and attacked and captured it. 30 He took the crown from the head of their king —its weight was a talent of gold, and it was set with precious stones—and it was placed on David's head. He took a great quantity of plunder from the city 31 and brought out the people who were there, consigning them to labor with saws and with iron picks and axes, and he made them work at brickmaking. He did this to all the Ammonite towns. Then David and his entire army returned to Jerusalem.


a. 2 Samuel 12:30 Or of Milcom (that is, Molech)
b. 2 Samuel 12:30 That is, about 75 pounds (about 34 kilograms)
c. 2 Samuel 12:31 The meaning of the Hebrew for this clause is uncertain.

More history as prophesy…

Amman is Jordan's capital city. It is built on seven mountains and has a fresh atmosphere and cool nights because of high altitude. Amman is a busy commercial center for Jordan with trendy boutiques and colorful bazaars. It is totally modern with many fine hotels and restaurants, entertainment, and sports.

In biblical times, Amman was known as Rabbath Ammon and under Ptolemies, as Philadelphia. It was taken by King Herod in 30 BC and became part of the Roman Empire and a member of the Decapolis, a dynamic commercial league of ten cities.

Revelation 17:9 "Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.

Part II


“Two years at Mt. Sinai and then the Jewish people went to Kadesh Barnea,” he says, transposing the Jewish people’s first entry into Israel via the Jericho region and the re-entry to those areas in 1967. “Then they sent in those spies who gave the evil report, and because they believed the evil report, they were sentenced to wander for 38 years before they could come into Gilgal.”

“1967 was a repetition of Kadesh Barnea,” Jones says. “If Israel had come in and taken this place, the Arabs would have fled like they did in 1948. But no, because of the evil report of Golda Meir and Motta Gur and Moshe Dayan, who said ‘We can not do that – world opinion will be against us’ – so Israel was sentenced to 38 years more – and June the 7th, Jerusalem Day, will be the 38th year.

John 5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. 3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. 4 For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had. 5 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Yeshua saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"

7 The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."

8 Yeshua said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk." 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked…

Thirty-eight years…

Note: the evening of June 7 is the new moon.

Hate to tell "Dr. Doolittle", but the Ark is in heaven.

Revelation 11:19 Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

I must state unequivocally my misgivings about the research of Dr. Jones.

Dr. Jones is a Judaizer not a Christian in the literal sense of that term. The Golgothite location of the Ark is actually an ancient belief which has been researched many times with negative results.

Most significantly of all the new Temple, sought by many Jews, Zionists, Judaizers and even misled Christians, would be not only entirely useless, as that era of animal sacrifice has been replaced by Christ once for all, it would certainly constitute blasphemy.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Decapolis (Greek: deka, ten; polis, city) was a group of ten cities on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire in Syria and Palestine. The ten cities were not an official league or political unit, but they were grouped together because of their language, culture, location, and political status. The Decapolis cities were centers of Greek and Roman culture in a region that was otherwise Semitic (Jewish, Nabatean, and Aramean). With the exception of Damascus, the "Region of the Decapolis" was located in modern-day northeastern Israel, northwestern Jordan, and southwestern Syria. Each city had a certain degree of autonomy and self-rule.

Decapolis cities labeled in red.



Except for Damascus, the Decapolis cities were by and large founded during Palestine's Hellenistic period, between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the Roman conquest of Palestine in 63 BC. Some were established under the Ptolemaic dynasty which ruled Palestine until 198 BC. Others were founded later, when the Seleucid dynasty ruled the region. Some of the cities included "Antiochia" or "Seleucia" in their official names (Antiochia Hippos, for example), which attest to Seleucid origins. The cities were Greek from their founding, modeling themselves on the Greek polis.

Cultural conflict defined these cities from the beginning. The Greek inhabitants were shocked by the Semitic practice of circumcision, while the native Semitic peoples were disgusted by the Greeks' acceptance of homosexuality and other unfamiliar sexual practices.

During Hellenistic times the cities were distinct as centers of Greek culture; Josephus names several of them in a list of Gentile cities in Palestine before the Roman conquest. The term "Decapolis" may have been used in the Hellenistic period, but it is mostly associated with the period after the Roman conquest in 63 BC.

The Roman general Pompey conquered Palestine in that year. The people of the Decapolis cities welcomed Pompey as a liberator from the Jewish Hasmonean kingdom that had ruled much of the area. In fact, for centuries the cities based their calendars on this conquest and used 63 BC as their base year. Their calendar is called the Pompeian Era. It is at this time that historians identify the region and the cities with the term "Decapolis."

The Roman Decapolis...

This guy sounds like a nutjob. "Endy" Jones?

I'd always heard Indiana Jones was based on Roy Chapman Andrews.
