6/14/10 pictures and temple
I have posted about 44 pictures on my picasa web site (see link below).
"The Lord will watch over your going out and your coming in from this time and forevermore." (Psalm 121)
41 "As for the foreigners who do not belong to your people Israel but have come from a distant land because of your name— 42 for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when they come and pray toward this temple, 43 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigners ask of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.
1 When Solomon had finished building the temple of the LORD and the royal palace, and had achieved all he had desired to do, 2 the LORD appeared to him a second time, as he had appeared to him at Gibeon. 3 The LORD said to him:
"I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. (1 Kings 8:41-43; 9:1-3)
Yesterday we went to the western (wailing) wall of the temple- the holiest site of the Jews. It was very moving. Also went to the Mount of Olives- great view over Jerusalem. Walked down traditional site Jesus walked on Palm Sunday. Stopped at the place- last view of Jerusalem as a whole- where Jesus wept over Jerusalem. Went on to the Garden of Gethsemane- very moving. I kept saying, "Lord, not my will but thine be done."
Please pray for us as today we need to work on Kay's getting her passport. Would love for this to come quickly so we can go to Jericho and Qumran this afternoon.
