Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem – Photo Essay

This is a photo essay of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The ground on which the church rests is venerated by most Christians as Golgotha, the Hill of Calvary, where the New Testament describes that Jesus was crucified. It also is said to contain the place where Jesus was reportedly buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important pilgrimage destination since the 4th century. Today it serves as the headquarters of the Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem and the Catholic Archpriest of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. The church is a topic of much debate and argument within the Christian world.
This is dedicated to Virginia.

    Thank you. I pray our Great and awesome God returns to you the blessing this has been to me.
    I Love you!

  3. When I went to this place with His Word in my heart, it was so very different. I can only sit on the steps outside and be still.

    El Shaddai/Almighty God,

    We praise You for this season, a time to reflect on this place. Forgive us our manner of debate and arguement, may they be turned to sound reasoning, according to Your Word. Let Your Glory be upon us; that we would with Your peace and our own hands, make this a place that is pleasing to You.
    A House Of Prayer For All People.
    In Your Holy Name we pray – Amen

  4. Today, Ive come back to pray this prayer again, as I have many times since March 30, 2006.

    I have not the words, so I will rely upon the Glory of His.

    9 After this manner therefore pray ye:

    Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

  5. Thank you, my Lord and Redeemer, my God, my King, my Friend. Ani Ahava Atah. Blessed be Your Name; Revered, Your Spirit. Let Your Glory be over all the Earth. Amen.

    He Lives!!!

  6. “The disciples came to Him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

    He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see;
    though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
    In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
    ” ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
    For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes.

    Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
    Matthew 13:10-15

    Thank You Abba, for the attonement You have provided for us. Thank You for answered prayer. Thank You for another [unified] day where we consider the attonement You have provided. And thank You Father for the blessed gift of hearing Your people say and sing “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord” Thank You for every heart You touch, every eye You open and every soul You heal. In the precious and Holy Word of Your Annointed One we pray, Bless Your people Israel; Come our Mighty King, Lord over all the Earth – Amen
