The Pool Of Siloam

The Pool of Siloam is expected to be re-opened in 2023 - Bible prophecy is happening before our very eyes.

1.    The Pool of Siloam, located in the southern portion of the City of David, the ancient epicenter of Jerusalem, and just outside the Old City walls, is expected to become one of the most important historic and tourist sites in the city. The pool has been a focal point for archaeologists and scholars for the last 150 years. The excavations are set to begin in January and will continue for at least several months, while the site is expected to open to the public in about a year.
2.    The Pool of Siloam was uncovered at the end of the 19th century, when British and American archaeologists led by Frederick Jones Bliss and Archibald Campbell Dickie exposed some of the steps of the Pool, followed by some work in the 1960s by the British archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon.
3.    There are many significant events that took place at the Pool of Siloam:
a.    Our Lord Jesus sent a man born blind to wash in this pool and his sight was restored.
i.    JOHN 9:7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
ii.    John 9:10-11 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
b.    In the days of the 2nd Temple, worshippers were required to wash in the Pool of Siloam before ascending to the Temple.  
c.    During the Feast of Tabernacles, water was taken in the Golden vessel from this Pool of Siloam and poured on the Altar to confirm Isaiah 12:3.
d.    On the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus spoke about another water, the coming Holy Ghost of promise:
i.    JOHN 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
e.    Solomon was anointed King at Gihon, whose waters flow into the Pool of Siloam.
i.    I KINGS 1:33-34 The king also said unto them, Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride upon mine own mule, and bring him down to Gihon: And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon.
4.    The expected re-opening of the Pool of Siloam is all part of the preparation for the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple. Bible prophecy is happening right before our very eyes.
