The Ark of the Covenant and the Gihon Spring

Most people have not noticed an important geographical indication in the Scriptures. When David took the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem he made a special tent (tabernacle) for it and pitched it over the Gihon Spring. 9 For the next 27 years of David’s reign (and for the first eleven years of Solomon – that is, for 38 years) the Ark remained in this particular tent at and over the Gihon Spring. That is where Solomon was crowned king. 10 This led the Jewish authorities to demand that all later kings of Judah be crowned at a spring. “Our Rabbis taught: Kings are anointed only by the site of a spring.” 11 As an example, when Joash was made king, the Scriptures show his crowning was in the Temple itself beside the Altar of Burnt Offering where the laver of Solomon was positioned to provide spring water from the Gihon Spring located underneath the Temple platform. 12 So, Joash (like Solomon) was crowned next to the Gihon Spring. Indeed, the Psalms show consistently that the Temples (called “God’s Houses”) had to have spring waters emerging from their interiors. Notice Psalm 87:1-3 and 7.

The Temple was built over the GIHON SPRING……THE ONLY PERENNIAL SPRING IN THAT AREA,,,,,THE SPRING IS THE ONLY REASON FOR THE CITY TO BE BUILT THERE.

Which is symbolic of the “living waters” flowing from the saint’s belly , which Jesus predicted.

In the bible, water = life.
Living waters = Spiritual everlasting life in Christ.

ASTOUNDING SYMBOLISM!
PRAISE CHRIST!
