Right from the days of Moses, Joshua, David et al, in the Bible the nation of Israel had gotten used to seeing spectacular divine interventions on her behalf. As readily demonstrated in several tomes and DVDs, even in our modern times, there has been no let up in the copious showers of miracles by the Almighty to protect and preserve the seed of Abraham. According to Rev. 12: 6, 14-16, these divine interventions are guaranteed to continue into the future – even in the days of the Antichrist. And of course, the mother of all interventions will be at Armageddon.
According to Ben Gurion, even while Israel must plan and work as if miracles don’t exist, yet it is plain realism to accept that miracles will occur when they need to. In his words: ‘In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.’
The just concluded 50-day war has been another opportunity for God to show how faithful He is to His covenants, and how He laughs at the rage of the nations who have thought to “take God’s heritage for a possession”.
In the article cited below, a Hamas terrorist lamented that it is not that their rocket-men were that incompetent; that none of the thousands of rockets successfully deployed from Gaza could have landed in downtown Tel Aviv, and cause some notable casualty. In his explanation, the God of Israel was diverting the missiles mid-air!
And for those thinking this to be some lame excuse to cover crass-incompetence, the testimony of an Israeli operator of the protective Iron-dome should make one think again. He actually saw a gust of east wind suddenly develope to divert an incoming missile into the sea. The event occurred with just a few seconds to the rocket reaching target and cause mass casualty - with the iron-dome defenses having failed twice to intercept it! In his own words:
“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident. Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’…“I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”
In any case, even if based on pure random statistics, out of almost three thousand rockets fired, one or two ought to have had a blind lucky strike on some important target in Israel. As a matter of fact, there were a few reports of the equally statistically-expected opposite, “friendly fire” situation, where rockets from Gaza crashed on Palestinian’s own power infrastructure, or hospital and refugee camps!
This sparing of Israel, contrary to all statistical expectations reminds of the promise in Psa. 91:7 “a thousand may fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee” – only the Almighty can confidently offer such a proposition!
