A major problem with the traditional 'Temple Mount' site for the Jerusalem temples is the absence of 'living' water (water that is not stagnant but flows or springs!)
Biblical 'types' are very important. They are earthly ‘shadows’ of what exists in the spiritual realm or in subsequent revelation. The Red Sea is a ‘type’ of baptism; The Tabernacle and later permanent Temple are a shadow-type of the Church (the people in whom God now dwells by his Spirit). Egypt typifies slavery in sin; Babylon typifies estrangement from God through neglect and disobedience; the bread in the Tabernacle speaks as a ‘type’, of Jesus (‘I am the bread of life’). There are many ‘types’. In each case, a physical item, place or event typifies a spiritual truth.
Through the Bible, the imagery of God’s 'throne-room' almost always includes a river of life-giving water. Solomon’s temple, the design for which came from God, via David, was full of typology.
So then…in order for the Temple site to qualify as a true ‘type’ for the place of God’s throne and presence it must surely include flowing water!
There is only one site that qualifies; a site in the City of David (Zion), above and near the once powerful and gushing Gihon Spring, whose water was channeled into the site as many ancient records attest. For more, read ‘THE PLACE: HaMakom: where Jerusalem’s temples stood’
