The annual priestly blessing chanted by thousands of kohanim, the male descendants of the brother of Moses, Aaron the Levite who was the first high priest, these chants went forth from the ancient Western Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem recently.

The participants, members of the priestly class of Jews, echoed Israel's chief rabbis in blessing the Jewish people both in Jerusalem, the nation of Israel and actually Jews around the world.

The recent blessing at the Western Wall was viewed by millions of Jews around the world via web cameras installed at the Western Wall Plaza in Jerusalem.

Tens of thousands of Jews gathering at the Western Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to receive the priestly blessing is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the end of times.

Recently, tens of thousands of Jews from around the world gathered at the Western Wall in Jerusalem to receive the priestly blessings from the thousands of Jewish men who claim to be priests. These men say they are of the tribe of Levi, a direct descendant of the brother of Moses, Aaron who was actually the very first high priest. The Bible directs priests to gather at the Temple three times a year and to pray for all of the Jewish people. This event happens on the three pilgrim feast days for the Jews: Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. The Old City of Jerusalem and the Western Wall Plaza was packed with 50,000 people who either received the priestly blessings or perform this special prayer. This happens however without a Temple in Jerusalem, but at the same time it looks ahead to the fulfillment of prophecy when there will be a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah revealed that the Messiah will come to Jerusalem and build His Temple there, Zechariah 6:12. That Temple, Messiah's Temple, is described in the book of Ezekiel 40-46 with 202 verse of meticulous information for how to build that Temple and operate the Temple services. However, there will be another Temple in Jerusalem before Messiah's Temple according to Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, II Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:1, and may I remind you that preparations have been made for this next Temple to be built, it is ready to be built right now.

Tens of thousands at the Temple Mount gathering to receive the priestly blessing is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
