We stood at the base of a 60 foot limestone wall. On the surface it appeared as unfinished cinderblock thrown together by people unfamiliar with building codes or craftsmanship. Many men gathered facing the wall to pray, and stuck small papers into cracks of the wall.
Beneath the surface, this wall was part of the indestructible Sacred Temple that stood hundreds of years, but was destroyed. The guide told us that all the original stones were there, but, in an attempt to rebuild the wall, they were not in their original position.
Most of the stones weigh 4000 pounds. There were 28 layers above ground and 17 layers below. Obviously, my first sight failed to calculate the size or weight of this structure. Through thousands of years these stones told a story. A stone wailing wall is the only thing left of this massive structure.
Some have placed their faith in an indestructible Temple and were left wailing at a fragment of their religion. The first impression missed, but God revealed the Truth, His Son, Jesus. Those who trust in God have no reason to wail. With Jesus Christ as your foundation, even the gates of hell shall not overcome it.
“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.” Isaiah 28:16
