God’s Name is on Jerusalem and USA
“My Name Shall be There…”
*** Note: information regarding the shin at Jerusalem was taken from another source. Reference is given below.
In 1 Kings 8:28-29, Solomon quotes the Lord as stating that His Name shall be in the land where Solomon is to build the House of God:
“That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.” -1 Kings 8:28-29
It is interesting that the three valleys form the Hebrew letter “Shin.”
A modern version of the Shin is shown in the picture below.
The Shin represents God’s name as in “El Shaddai” (God Almighty).
“Shaddai,” written in Hebrew ydc, denotes the character of God, that He is Almighty.
This is how God revealed Himself to the\ patriarchs in Exodus 6:2-3.
The Shin likewise represents God’s name and character on Mezzuzot that are placed on doorposts as commanded in Deuteronomy 6:9:
“And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.”
Reference for the Shin at Jerusalem
4 Kidron Valley (Valley of the Shadow of Death)
During the Feast of Tabernacles at night, four enormous oil lamps burned in the Temple courtyard.
Each lamp had four large bowls of oil on tall stands, with wicks made from worn-out garments of the priests.
It is written that “there was not a courtyard in Jerusalem that did not reflect the light” (Mishnah, Sukkoth 5:3).
The lights could be seen throughout Jerusalem; however due to the depth and angle, the Kidron Valley remained in shadow.
The Kidron Valley has many burial sites, since many believe that the resurrection will begin there.
For these reasons, it is said that the Kidron Valley was called the “Valley of the Shadow of Death,” as in Psalm 23:4.
David likely wrote Psalm 23 when fleeing from his son, Absalom (a type of the False Messiah), across the Kidron Valley – 2 Samuel 15.
Psalm 23 is likely a a prophetic reference to the Messiah, Yeshua, who was arrested at the Garden of Gethsemane, then brought to Jerusalem across the Kidron Valley.
Yeshua likely prayed Psalm 23 at that moment.
5 Tyropoeon Valley
The rugged Tyropoeon Valley separates Mount Moriah from Mount Zion and was spanned by bridges, most notably Zion Bridge, connecting the royal palace on Mount Zion to the Temple.
A fragment of an arch of this bridge, called “Robinson’s Arch”, was discovered by historian Edward Robinson in 1838.
6 Hinnom Valley
The name of the Hinnom Valley in Hebrew is GeHinnom, “Gehenna.”
Gehenna became associated with eternal torment (the lake of fire) because detestable infant sacrifices to Molech took place there.
Gehenna is translated “hell” in the KJV (Matthew 5:22, 29).
Gehenna is the valley of slaughter that will be used in the future (end times) as a place of slaughter, flames, and punishment for the wicked:
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.” – Jeremiah 19:6.
Interesting observation for USA – shin is outlined in 3 major connecting fault lines in the nation
These are the major fault lines in the USA.
Other smaller ones branch off from these or are secondary to these.
So far, most are familiar with the San Andreas fault and the New Madrid Fault. But notice there is more.
1. One interesting analogy, if this is a legitimate comparison at all, and I admit it is just a theory, is that the east coast fault line is equivalent to the Kidron Valley, which runs on the east side of the Temple Mount.
It is this valley that will be the site of one end time battle.
2. Also interesting is the observation that the US government elite has moved all its critical operations and bunkers to the “gehenna” region, to safeguard itself as it expects the rest of America to perish.
I have a feeling that the elite will experience its own gehenna during the wrath of God when it is unleashed.
Analogous divisions of the land:
If this was an intentional design of YHVH God to reproduce the shin in the United States, then it is a blessing that this was done.
As God’s name was carved out of the landscape, it eventually became a refuge for Christians and Jews.
However, as man has moved away from God, He may remove his name from the land, and when he does, it will be terrible.
Dividing of Jerusalem in the Last Days
Joel says the land will be divided, which would include Jerusalem. It is already divided even now, and will experience more division.
1“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land,
3 and l have cast lots for my people, and have traded a boy for a prostitute, and have sold a girl for wine and have drunk it.
Zechariah 14: 2 says that half the city will go into captivity.
I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.
I am not expecting ANY Muslim areas to be given up.
So looking at the map, I would say most to one half of the Jewish quarter will be taken away and given to the Muslims.
When this happens, I expect a split along the Madrid line in the USA.
The east of the USA will go into captivity along with the Jews in East Jerusalem.
Both the east and west sides of the USA will be divided and cut off from each other, to mirror what is happening in the whole Jerusalem.
