The Key of David

By Warder Cresson (Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham).

Reasons for Becoming a Jew, No. 6

Three Startling Facts, in Jerusalem

God's Address to "Ariel,", (which is Jerusalem,) "the City where David dwelt."

"And thou shalt be brought down, and thou shalt speak out of the ground, (the Grave,) and thy Speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy Voice shall be as one that has a familiar spirit, out of the Ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the Dust." Isaiah 29:1 and 4. Mark well, then, what I say. As soon as there is a sufficient force sent, fully authorized and properly qualified and duly protected, then we will find the three following facts--

1st. David's Body, that now lays in the Tomb of David, is in a perfect state of Incorruptibility , contrary to the positive declaration is Acts. 13:36, that his Body "saw Corruption," and confirming Psa. 16:10, that God "will not suffer his 'HOLY ONE' (which is David, see Ps. 89. 19, 10) to see Corruption," and what right have we to transfer David's Identity and promise of "never seeing corruption" over to Jesus, or to any other person?*

* See Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, Book 16, Page 257, Chap. 12, where two of Herod's guards were killed in attempting to rob his grave.

2dly. The whole lower story* of the Temple, 187½ feet long, and from 9 to 25 feet high, not only under the Mosque El-Aksa, but also the lower story under the Mosque of Omar, continues to this day entire , contrary to the Testimony of Matthew 24:2, that "There shall not be left here One stone upon another that shall not be thrown down."

* See Catherwood's Testimony and that of Mr. Tipping in the "Occident" for Feb. 1849, page 500, on the "Temple of Jerusalem."

3dly. "That the Church of the 'Holy Sepulcher' (so called) cannot be the Place* where the Nazarene (Jesus) was crucified, as it is a long way WITHIN the NORTH WALL of the City, and we well know that the ancient wall of Jerusalem extended much farther north than the present wall, and the New Testament (so called) says, that he "suffered without the Gate," see Heb. 13:12. Examine impartially the above Three Facts, and the Veil of Christianity will be forever rent from off its followers' eyes.

* And so does the whole of the "West Wall of Wailing" still remain.

"The Mission* of Inquiry to the Jews from the Church of Scotland, page 139, says, this "visit (to the Holy Sepulcher) awakened in our mind only feelings painful and revolting;" and then observes, that "no serious mind can regard it but as 'Lying Wonders.'" And so ere long it will be seen, that the whole of Christianity is "Lying† Wonders" and "Pious Frauds."

* And see Dr. Robinson's Researches, Vol. ii. p. 64, and Dr. Durbin, Vol. i. pp. 305, 306.

† See Isaiah 47:9 and 12.
