As stated above, this happened on Saturday while Jerusalem was being covered with snow. The collapse occurred four days after the earthquake which shook all of Israel, including Jerusalem. The earthquake was stronger in the Jerusalem area than in other areas as Jerusalem is closer to the epicentre which was north of the Dead Sea. Archaeologists and scientists stated that the collapse of the wall was as a result of the quake as well as the snow. The archaeologist, Dr. Eilat Mazal, from the committee for the prevention of the destruction of the antiques on the Temple Mount said that "the occurrence of another much bigger collapse is only a question of time and it will cause a major disaster". Other archaeologists and scientists stated that the collapse is just a forerunner of further collapses on the Temple Mount.
The archaeologists in Israel called on the Israeli Antiquities Department to use the collapse of the wall near the Western Wall for researcher's needs. They called for the investigation of the so-called Berkley Gate, the ancient gate which is under the western wall of the Temple Mount and which was the ancient Biblical gate to the Temple Mount called the Kipponus Gate which was one of the five gates which are mentioned in the Mishna. As was said, since the 19th century it has been called the Berkley Gate after the American Consul to Jerusalem who discovered it. The archaeologist, Meyer ben Dov, said that there is no doubt that this is the Biblical Kipponus Gate. It will now be easier to investigate it because, as a result of the collapse, the gate has been uncovered. In 1968, the Israeli archaeologists who dug close to the area, headed by Prof. Binyamin Mazar, asked the authorities to remove the ramp leading to the western gate of the Temple Mount and to open the Biblical Kipponus Gate which is under it for Jews to enter the Temple Mount. Unfortunately their request was turned down.
It is so special and a clear message from G-d that the collapses and the bulges occurred in the walls of the main Biblical gates of the Temple Mount, the southern wall in which were the gates where the millions of Jewish pilgrims entered in Biblical times, in the eastern wall where the Golden-Shushan Gate where the messiah will enter the Temple Mount, and the western wall where the main gates were situated for the entrance of the kings and priests of Israel. The godly message is so clear - He wants to open the gates, which were blocked up during history by the Moslems and Arabs, for His people, Israel.
In another recent report I wrote about a Jewish tradition that, in the time of the redemption of Israel, G-d would cause an earthquake to destroy the foreign mosques on the Temple Mount and open the way for the building of the endtime Temple. This time has already come. We are now living in the endtimes, the time of the redemption of the people of Israel. The Temple Mount is now at the center of the godly endtime events of our time. As the archaeologists stated, the latest collapse of a wall, together with other similar events on the Temple Mount, are just the forerunners for much more major collapses on the Temple Mount. The G-d of Israel expected the Israeli Government to remove the mosques from the Temple Mount immediately after the liberation of the Temple Mount in 1967, exactly as the chief rabbi of the Israeli army, Shlomo Goren, demanded of them. The G-d of Israel waited almost 37 years for the Israeli Government to do this. As they do not do this because of weakness, He has started to do what He promised his people of Israel, thousands of years ago as was prophesied by Zechariah. G-d shares about the endtime war of the nations against Israel and her capital, Jerusalem then He promises His people:
"Then shall the L-rd go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand on that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in its midst toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall be moved toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And you shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal; yes, you shall flee, like you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah; and the L-rd my God shall come, and all the holy ones with you. And it shall come to pass on that day, that there shall not be bright light nor thick darkness; But it shall be one day which shall be known to the L-rd, not day, nor night; but it shall come to pass, that at evening time there shall be light. And it shall be on that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter shall it be. And the L-rd shall be king over all the earth; on that day the L-rd shall be one, and his name one. All the land shall be changed like the Arabah from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem; and she shall be lifted up, and remain in her place, from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the first gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananeel to the king's wine presses. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall dwell secure. ... and on that day there shall not be Canaanites any more in the house of the L-rd of hosts." (Zechariah 14:3-11,21b)
The earthquake which occurred in Israel on 11 February and its result — which was the collapse of the wall in the Western Wall area — is the beginning of the earthquake prophesied by Zechariah. In our last report about the collapse of another wall on the Temple Mount I wrote about the statements of the Israeli seismologists that in the near future there will be a major earthquake which will have the Temple Mount and Jerusalem at its center. The result of this earthquake will be the collapse of buildings in the area and will cause terrible loss of lives and property. The earthquake which occurred on the 11th was an earthquake of a magnitude of 5 on the Richter scale. The quake was felt very strongly, especially in Jerusalem. Despite the fact that it was only a moderate earthquake, houses and furniture shook. On the day after, 11 aftershocks were felt. Now, after the damage from the earthquake has been checked, no building collapsed besides this wall in the Western Wall area. This is a clear message from the G-d of Israel to Israel, its enemies and to all the world that He is determined to fulfil His promises of thousands of years ago and that nothing will prevent Him from cleansing and purifying His holy hill from the foreigners and enemies of the G-d and people of Israel and that the Third Temple is soon to be built. G-d will be King of all the earth on that day, which is soon to come. G-d will then be One and his Name One. Israel and Jerusalem will live in safety and there will no longer be foreigners in the house of the G-d of Israel (Zechariah 14:9,21).
It was so unique that the earthquake of 11 February also caused a crack in the ceiling of the Knesset office of the Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon. It was a clear message from G-d to Ariel Sharon as well to fulfil his godly task and to redeem the Temple Mount and to build the endtime Temple of G-d. It is no accident that it happened exactly in the office of Sharon. It was also a godly message to him not to withdraw from the holy Biblical areas of Israel in Judaea, Samaria, and Gaza; not to evacuate the Jewish settlement there, which is a fulfilment of endtime prophecy of the G-d of Israel and very holy to Him and, as He commanded us, will never be removed:
"Behold, the days come, says the L-rd, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink their wine; they shall also make gardens, and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them, says the L-rd your God." (Amos 9;13-15)
