Speaking at the Prophecy in the News Conference in Jerusalem earlier this month, AnaRina Heymann, outreach coordinator for the archaeological park City of David, said that excavations at the site were irrefutable “prophecy set in stone” revealing the true voice of Jerusalem and the Bible.
“You can’t not see what’s happening there,” she said, calling the park a “nuclear power plant of prophecy.”
The City of David is the true location of ancient Jerusalem as it was described in the Bible. An extremely popular tourist site, it sits just outside the Old City walls. Virtually thousands of archaeological discoveries at the site have consistently reinforced and proven Biblical accounts.
Heymann, who runs the Jerusalem Watch project, said that the City of David and the Bible only made sense when viewed together. “We’ve looked at the Bible for 2,000 years, and you don’t understand what’s going on,” she said. “Suddenly you get to the excavations and the whole picture comes about”, and vice versa; often, finds have mystified archaeologists until the Biblical account is consulted.
The City of David is proof that “the ancient city has to rise,” she declared. “God’s prophecies are standing.”
“There’s no way you can refute what you see there,” she added, referring to UNESCO resolutions which deny the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.
“If we uncover the city, we’re opening up her voice and she starts calling back her children, her sons,” Heymann said passionately, detailing an incredible chronology of the site.
The City of David was originally discovered in 1867 by British archaeologist Charles Warren. Exactly fifty years later, in 1917, Jerusalem was liberated from the hands of the Ottoman Empire by British forces. Fifty years following that, in 1967, the entire city was finally reunified in the miraculous Israeli victory of the Six-Day War.
Heymann related the chronology to the present moment marking the fiftieth anniversary of the reunification, rousing the audience into cheers and applause.
“Right now, where we’re sitting right now, we’re in the next cycle, which we just entered into,” she told the crowd. “And you can be very very excited about what you’re going to see in these times.”
She said that the important work at the City of David, which recently added a third shift so that excavations can be continued non-stop, is clear proof that “we are in a place where things are definitely speeding up” in terms of approaching prophetic end-times.
“We are working around the clock to liberate the city from her millennia-old prison. And as she’s being liberated we see tremendous dynamics happening.”
She concluded her talk by exhorting the participants at the conference, whom she called “pioneers” in the field of Biblical understanding and prophecy, to spread the truth of what they had learned and to prepare themselves for the coming times. Heymann cited a pivotal Isaiah verse which calls for Jerusalem’s return:
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Yerushalayim, they shall never hold their peace day nor night: ‘Ye that are Hashem’s remembrancers, take ye no rest, and give Him no rest, till He establish, and till He make Yerushalayim a praise in the earth.’ Isaiah 62:6
“Whatever you’ve heard today, you are the ambassadors that need to go and tell the people about this,” she urged. “Tell the people about the real facts on the ground, whether it’s political, or religious, or prophecy, and make sure that the world knows.”
