The Western Wall. A new video from Aish for Jerusalem Day.

Aish.com have produced the following video. What intrigues me is the emotional power it has on non-Jews. The Druze get a mention.

Christians do not need the Temple. However, that does not mean that the Temple does not need to be built. Many Christians, and I am one, see it as a necessary part of the re-building of Israel and its return to faith as well as a necessary prophetic fulfillment of God's Word. I'll post on that in more detail another time.

In the meantime, the video shows the Western Wall today but also that marvellous day in 1967 when Israeli troops re-united Jerusalem. June 7, 1967 (28 Iyar 5727) This year (2013) it will be May 8.

I am sure that there are many Jews and Christians who never really understood why you didn't build the Temple then. 

One point of dispute. The video identifies the Wall, the Kotel and the Land as the heart of Israel. The Heart of Israel should always be the LORD, the God of Hosts.
