The Western Wall
I kept being drawn back to this spot. I watched a stream of Israelis calling on the God of their fathers with no hint of embarrassment, or wedging tightly folded written prayers between the massive blocks of stone erected by King Solomon as foundations for the temple. Later, I thought of the words of Isaiah spoken and read down the centuries to people who have still to make the connection as to who he was taking about. Obvious - but hidden. The unveiling of truth is not dependent on intellect. Instead, God has promised, “You shall find Me when you shall seek Me and search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29 v 13. In the stones, masked as Hebrew text, are words from Isaiah ch53. Obvious – but hidden.
