First Time: Temple Mount Priestly Blessing on Jerusalem Day
INN ^ | 6/2/11 | Hillel Fendel

Posted on 06/02/2011 11:17:29 AM PDT by Nachum

Hundreds of religious Jews from all streams were able to happily commemorate the 44th anniversary of the first-ever entry of Israeli soldiers onto the TempleMount.

For the first time in the history of Israeli restrictions on Jewish entry to the Temple Mount, the recitation of the Priestly Blessing was permitted there. It happened on Wednesday, Jerusalem Reunification Day, when hundreds of visitors – all of whom immersed in a mikveh (ritual bath) prior to coming and took other precautions required by Jewish Law – were allowed to enter the Temple Mount in groups of 30-40.

Among them were several Cohanim (descendants of Aharon the Priest). They spread their hands in the customary manner and recited, “May G-d bless and watch over your… May G-d shine His countenance upon and show you grace… May G-d raise His countenance towards you and grant you peace” (Numbers 6, from the portion to be read aloud this week in synagogues throughout the Jewish world).

Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute and one of the paratroopers who helped liberate the Temple Mount in 1967, and who was miraculously saved from death at the tim, recited aloud the blessing, “Barukh – Thou art the source of blessing, G-d, Who performed a miracle for me in this place.” Many visitors and listeners, including policemen, recited "Amen!”

The West Wall, having survived thousands of years, wouldn’t survive the first week of the Palestinian State.

Very POOR video, IMHO. Five minutes and they couldn't give Jesus five seconds. We are not alone!

Though within Judaism there´s no prospect that Mashiach will be in any way divine.

Yeah. But he's kinda important. Bar Kochba didn't rule over Jerusalem either but he gets a mention. When the script gets to the Crusades, we get a Jewish death toll, but not a Christian one. I guess the Christians just don't count since they obviously came there to murder Jews, right?

I thought about posting something about this video yesterday when someone else recommended it to me. But I didn't because it embarrasses me. I am not an Island.

I guess we will found out when He returns.

There are some who believe he will be filled with the Shekhinah.

I doubt your assessment. The Palis do not have it in their power to do what the Romans, Mamluks, Crusaders, Ottomans and British all failed to do.

Another step toward the coming of the Mashiach.

And wont you be suprised when it is NOT the man from Nazareth.

Jer16:19 O LORD, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, “ Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things.”

Is2:2And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations (הַגּוֹיִם )(goyim) shall flow unto it. 3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

The nations (goyim) go to Zion to learn the Law. The Law? I thought the Law was a curse according to Paul the roman.

I guess we will have to see as who the Mashiach is.

My money is the Rabbi from Nazareth.

The Law is a curse if one must adhere to all the
Law for every moment of one's life with no exception.

If one can call on an everlasting sacrifice for my sins,
I am freed of the curse of the Law.

With the coming of the New Covenant
the Law is written on our hearts.

The paul the roman you refer to is
in fact Saul the student of Gamaliel the Elder.

Do not take your understanding of the followers of the Mashiach
from the Roman "church".

G-d gave us the Law to do. Told us we CAN do it. It is not up in heaven....it is not accross the sea...but near to us...in our mouth and in our heart that we may DO IT. Deut 30 KJV.

Do you really think G-d is going to give us a Law we CANT do? After telling us we can? Is G-d duplicitous? A liar? G-d forbid! The bible also says many times the Law is FOREVER (Ps 111 for one). Again is G-d a liar? It isnt really

forever even though He say it is?

If one can call on an everlasting sacrifice for my sins, I am freed of the curse of the Law.

There is not verse in all of Tanach that speaks of an everlasting sacrifice. Human sacrifice is forbidden. Human vicarious atonement is forbidden. Forgiveness is obtained through prayer, repentance, charity and fasting (and there are others). No blood required!

With the coming of the New Covenant the Law is written on our hearts.

A)The new covenant has not arrived yet. B) The new cov is with the house of Israel...not the gentiles and finally Jeremiah 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Has that happened yet? No. The new covenant is not in place. And new covenant does NOT mean new Torah or no Torah.

The paul the roman you refer to is in fact Saul the student of Gamaliel the Elder.

Says who? The Talmud speaks of Gamaliel and some of his students but if Paul was his student, the Talmud never mentions it. And you would think that if Paul was such a awesome student...he would have been mentioned. Also, Pauls argumentations are not Pharisiaical.

Shalom
