2-KOR, a cylinder with a 40+ square inch base: 62.5 inches high cylinder holds 2,500+ cubic inches: and 25 inches high cylinder holds 1000 cubic inches, or 4 times as much as a KOR.

5-KOR, A five KAPH diameter cylinder (5-KOR) will equal (25/7*5)/2]2 * π = 250+ square inch base: and a ten inch high cylinder contains 2,500 cubic inches of space (after a Dip Stick is inserted). This is 10 times the volume of a KOR.

10-KOR, A ten KAPH diameter cylinder (10-KOR) equals 1,000+ square inch base. The 10 KAPH is just short of 36 inches in diameter: If you used a 1/7” thick wall on the 10-KOR, the outside would be exactly 36 inch diameter.



Air Wells

An Air Well produces water from the air just as a cloud does.  When warm moist air is cooled to what is called, the Due Point, it will condense provided it has something upon which to condense.  Condensation occurs in a cloud when microscopic particles of dust are present.  When the air rises and is subsequently cooled to the due point water forms around the particles in the air.  In an Air Well the water in the air condenses on the rough edges of brick or stone when the temperature of the air reaches the due point.  The brick or stone must be protected from the sun and cooled by the cooling effect of the earth.  Cooling of the air to the due point occurs as the air contacts cool underground stones and water. It is conceivable that the proposed site could be designed to capture the prevailing warm moist air from the Western Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, and direct it under ground through the porous fill behind the retaining walls.  Therein the ground cooling effect would cool the air to the Due Point, the water in the air will condense on the stones and drip to the water table in the fill.  This effect has been known and used for thousands of years in the desert regions.  This system can conceivably produce millions of gallons of water within AKD. (Ref: Ezekiel 47:1+)



 (1) AKD: the name of A District set aside to support The Court of Appeal for All Nations, a.k.a. The House Of Prayer for Everyone (HOPE).

A Kingdom District is a place described in the book of the Bible named Ezekiel. (Chapter 48, verse 20+) The acronym of A Kingdom District is AKD. “AKD” is a cluster of projects first envisioned by our heavenly Father and then revealed to us approximately 2,500 years ago through the Prophet Ezekiel. AKD is a fitting reference to the project described by Ezekiel because it describes an intended purpose and goal for the project. One of AKD’s purposes is to unify Judah and Israel, and as a result unifying the rest of the world as ONE Kingdom under Heaven. (Ref. AKD for more information.)

(2) A Kingdom District (AKD): a CHARTED PROGRAM to design and develop a unique district made up of at least 13 large projects within a sponsor specified land design development area. Also Known As, A PRESENT.

Acceptance: The formal process of accepting delivery of a product or deliverable.

Acceptance Criteria: Performance requirements and essential conditions that have to be achieved before project deliverables are accepted.



(1) AKD: The acronym of A Kingdom District. AKD are ancient Hebrew letters אחד for the word pronounced ekh-awd; meaning, united, one, altogether, unified, first; and “aw-khad”, meaning to unify.  This Hebrew word may be a root of our English word “awkward”. As life’s experiences have shown us, achieving unity requires risks and endurance of awkward moments. An example is learning to dance. To dance we must overcome the awkwardness to our individualism. To construct AKD we must learn to dance as men dance.

These words are used in a number of  well known Bible verses such as: “For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the YHWH, to serve him with one (AKD) consent.” Zephaniah 3:8-9  When we are one (AKD) people we will speak one (AKD) language.   By means of this acronym we develop a poetic, spiritual, and cross cultural mind map of A Kingdom District.  Through the use and understanding of this acronym, our Hebraic roots will grow. The first use in the Bible of the word AKD is in Genesis 1:5; “And El-lo-hem (all-to-them) called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.  And the evening and the morning were the first (AKD) day.” The second use of this word AKD we find in Genesis 1:9; “And El-lo-hem (all-to-them) said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one (AKD) place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. The third reference in the Bible using AKD is Genesis 2:24;  “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one (AKD) flesh. This and the next usage of the word refer to being unified.  “And the YHWH said, ‘Behold, the people is one (AKD), and they have all one (AKD) language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.  Genesis 11:6.  This verse speaks of the power of unity. “ . . . nothing will be restrained from us.” In Psalm 14:3 David says, “they are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no not one (AKD).”  If this is so then where is our hope in ever becoming clean again.  David answers this question in the seventh verse of Psalm 14, “Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!  When YHWH bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.”

(2) AKD: see A Kingdom District.

(3) AKD stands for the POWER of ONE AKD Client to request one AKD Project be built in one AKD place on one planet Earth.  The Hebrew letters AKD mean “ONE”, first, decisive, sharp, unity and United, depending upon the various vowels inserted within context. AKD stands for HaShem (The Name). He is ONE on the Earth:

(4) AKD, אחד  = ‘ONE’ REGAL RULER AND KING of the universe and his name is AKD.

“And the LORD YHWH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one (AKD) LORD, and his name one (AKD).” Zechariah 14:9 The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.

(5) AKD stands for unity among people, people being united behind one project. Therefore, AKD stands for the power of ONE Creator to OWN the planet he created and have a place on it to call his own; the place designated as AKD, a place built by people who work together to show their appreciation to the one who created this Planet in the first place.

“All the land (of AKD) shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.   And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.” Zechariah 14:10-11 The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.

AKD Project description

Obvious parallels with the existing U.S. "District" of Columbia and A Kingdom District are intentional.  The District of Columbia is the Capital of the United States of America; A Kingdom District is the Capital of the Unified Nations of Planet Earth.  A Kingdom District is to be, “a blessing to all nations” just as the District of Columbia is to the various States of the United States. A Kingdom District is ten miles square; the same area provided for in the U. S. Constitution for the seat of the U. S. Federal Government.  The seats of government in D. C. daily pray for the various states they govern.  Within A Kingdom District is “a house of prayer for all nations”.  A Kingdom District is a place where ordinary people live and play.  It is a place for statesmen and visitors.  It is a place of splendor and beauty.  A kingdom District is the dwelling place of El-lo-hem (God, all-to-them). “My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be to them El-lo-hem, and they shall be my people. And the Nations shall know that I the YHWH (meaning, i am your every breath) do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.” Ezekiel 37:27-28

Alternatives: A number of different solutions and approaches that must be evaluated and chosen to attain the objectives of a project, INCLUDING DOING NOTHING.

AKM, A Koded Mile (AKM) Post is 2,500 cubits between markers. This is but one of many instances of the use of 25 and it factors in this measurement system we are using.

AKR, A One Acre Area (AKR = Area Koded Ruler) is 100 x 100 cubits. A Sector (SKR = Section Koded Ruler) is a 2,500 cubits square, or 625 acres. AKD is 25,000 cubits on a side, or 100 Sections, or 62,500 AKR.


A Plain– Cut and Fill; “The land shall be turned to a plain from Geba to Rimmon (see Ref. below) south of Jerusalem.”  Zechariah 14:10  A site development engineer would refer to the leveling and contouring of the land upon which something is to be built as CUT AND FILL; cut the high places and fill the low.  The area described by Ezekiel is now badly scared by erosion.  Often an engineer when called to correct this problem will design a retaining wall to extend across a ravine or valley and then fill in behind.  Most of the retention necessary to level and contour for AKD would be on the eastern border.  Homes and gardens could be part of the structure of these retaining walls.  The fill material behind the retaining wall would be porous allowing space for water to be stored therein.  The retaining wall would act as a dam and the fill as a reservoir.  A pump extended to the base of the retaining wall would retrieve the water for irrigation, industrial, and domestic use as required.  Millions of gallons of water could be stored in these fills.


An "apostille" is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. A list of countries that accept apostilles is provided by the US State Department.

If the country of intended use does not participate in the Hague Convention, documents being sent to that country can be "authenticated" or "certified".

The Office of the Secretary of State provides apostille and authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals on documents that will be used overseas. Types of documents include corporate documents such as company bylaws and articles of incorporation, power of attorney, diplomas, transcripts, letters relating to degrees, marital status, references and job certifications, home studies, deeds of assignments, distributorship agreements, papers for adoption purposes, etc. The U.S. State Department provides general information about document authentications and apostilles under the Hague Convention of 1961.

Obtaining an Apostille or Authentication/Certification in Washington State
IMPORTANT! Apostille certificates are issued by a state government only for documents which have been signed by a government official (or a Notary Public) of that same state.


Approach Statement: A high-level description of how the project will accomplish its goals and objectives.


The Prophet Ezekiel gave the description of A Kingdom District (AKD) to us 2500 years ago.  AKD is described as: Ezekiel 48:20; NKJV " The entire district shall be twenty-five thousand cubits by twenty-five thousand cubits, foursquare. You shall set apart the holy district with the property of the city. ” AKD is a PRESENT given in love to YHWH, a gift of land, plans, materials, and workmanship.  "As a SPECIAL GIFT, you will set aside the SACRED PORTION along with the PROPERTY OF THE CITY." NIV

Ezekiel 40:1-48:20 NKJV


AKD is a PLANNED project with SPECIAL ORDERS to DESIGN AND BUILD: "Son of man, describe the temple to the people of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their sins.  Let them consider the plan, and if they are ashamed of all they've done, make known to them the design of the temple--its arrangement, its exits and entrances--its whole design and all its regulations and laws. Write these down before them so that they may be faithful to its design and follow all its regulations."


AKD is a special place, set aside for a special purpose: "While the man was standing beside me, I heard someone speaking to me from inside THE TEMPLE.  He said: ‘Son of man, this is a place of MY THRONE and a place for the souls of my feet.  This is where I will live among the Israelites forever.’" Ezekiel 43:6-7a NIV



The Mountain: a four mile in diameter dome which stands 2000 feet above the surrounding landscape.  Under the dome is the Old City of Jerusalem and the New King David Hotel II.  Four spiral rings around the surface of the dome form gutters that direct the water to a large mote like parameter gutter, which also acts as holding and storing water and weight to keep the dome on the earth.  On the top center of the dome is the House of YHWH, 2000 feet above the ground and the city below.



Balanced Scorecard: A management and measurement system that enables organizations to clarify their vision and strategy, and translate them into action. It provides feedback for both the internal business processes and external outcomes in order to continuously improve strategic performance and results.

BRANCH (see See-MaKe)

(1) A Branch Charter defines the office of the BRANCH and the origins of A Branch Corporation, a corporation sole in the contex of Zechariah 6:12-15 and John 15:5.

(2) The word BRANCH is itself a motto: taking the Hebrew letters BRA (baw-raw’) which mean: to create, and, NCH (no’-akh) meaning: rest  (NCH is the name of the patriarch of the flood, Noah). From this word we can envision A BRANCH Concept: “Creating a resting place, a cover or nest from the storms and from the rain.” (See Isaiah 4)

Ephraim is the largest and lead tribe of the House of Israel.

Genius 48 : 11 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not thought to see your face; but in fact, God has also shown me your offspring!"

12 So Joseph brought them from beside his knees, and he bowed down with his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near him. 14 Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. 15 And he blessed Joseph, and said: "God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked,

The God who has fed me all my life long to this day,

16 The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil,

Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them,

And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac;

And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth."

17 Now when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him; so he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head. 18 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head."

19 But his father refused and said, "I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations."

20 So he blessed them that day, saying, "By you Israel will bless, saying, 'May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!' " And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

Feasibility Study: A study to examine the viability of taking on a project.

Fiscal Year: The 12-month period of July 1 to June 30 used for financial planning and reporting purposes.



Geba to Rimmon

The distance between Geba and Rimmon is larger than the area prescribed for AKD.  Geba is approximately six miles (10K) north of Jerusalem.  In addition, Rimmon South is approximately thirty-six miles (58K) South West of Jerusalem.  Therefore, these two cities are 42 miles (68K) apart.  The diagonal or maximum distance of the area described by Ezekiel is 35,355.34 cubits (13.95 miles or 22.45K).  Therefore, the area described by Zechariah is three times as long as needed for Ezekiel’s project.  This larger area allows for working room, materials, storage, grade transitions and future development.

KAPH, hand or palm of the hand used in AKD measures, weights, and values: When the 25” KBR, Koded Base Ruler, cubit ruler, is divided by seven (7) the resultant number is (25 / 7 = 3.371428+ inches = one KAPH) – we call this length exactly one (1) KAPH or hand – it is convenient for determining the volume of a cylinder with a base of 10 square inches, etc.


KBR, Hebrew: keb-awr´= length (See Kode Base Ruler)

KHoMeR (Koded House for the Master Ruler): A cubic cubit 25*25*25=15,625 cubic inches. The KHOMER contains 1,000,000 quarter inch cubes (qin3): And a KHOMER contains 1,000 2.5 inch square cubes (KUB or KUP) = 15.625 cubic inches each.


A kingdom is: a government or country headed by a king.

The KINGDOM we refer to is: the spiritual and regal realm of El-lo-hem (meaning, “all-to-them”) (the Name of the ONE God, YHWH) and his authority as creator over this planet earth. 


KKR, Hebrew: KiKkawR, means a large weight, and is often translated in English as a ‘talent’. Hebrew letters also have numerical values, K = 20, R = 200, so the word kkr has a value of 20+20+200=240. We will demonstrate that 240 cubic inches of silver (Ag) is one Kikkawr of one KAPH diameter and 24 inches tall which weighs 90 pounds avoirdupois or 1440 av. ounces. This is very nearly exactly equal to the weight of 2,500 cubic inches of water. Kikkawr (KKR) is divided into 60 mina.

Kode Base Ruler (1 ammah + 1 To-phach = 7 KAPH) (symbols: q or KBR {Hebrew: keb-awr´= length, a.k.a. code(d) cubit})= 25” (inches) = 0·635 meter [exactly.]

This master ruler has an interesting relationship with both decimal and fractional measurement as, ¼” is 100th of a cubit, and 1/40th inch is 1,000th of a cubit.

KOR a.k.a. core, (Koded-Orb-Ruler, Heb. KOR a.k.a. core, gallon) a cylinder constructed for measuring and calibrating volume: made one (1) KAPH diameter and one (1) cubit (25 inches ) tall, this cylinder KOR would contain slightly more than 250 cubic inches of <substance> ([25/7/2]2 * π = [10.01783372 * 25] – 0.01783372 remainder = 250). A Dip Stick is constructed to displace the excess in the KAPH diameter KOR making the exact <substance> volume equal 10 cubic inches per inch of height, making the 25” cylinder’s capacity exactly 250 cubic inches. (This displacement stick’s thickness and width can vary as long at they add up to the remainder, 0.01783372 square inches, i.e. 1/8 x 1/7, or 1/16 x 0.285, or 0.071 x ¼” or 0.035 thick by 1/2” wide.) The KOR contains 16 KUPs.
