Deuteronomy 11:12; Genesis 12:3; Psalm 122:6
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you,
I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10
5-29-18, The following message is from four years ago - currently Israel is being attacked again by the Islamic militants in Gaza; nothing has changed - in the past God has protected the Israeli soldiers and civilians. Based on scripture and history ... He will again. [More here about current attack]
8-11-14, * -- Over the more than month long Operation Protective Edge conflict between Hamas Islamic terrorists and the Israel Defense Forces [IDF], a strikingly few number of Israeli civilians were injured. Over 3,356 rockets have been fired at Israel, with that number rising everyday, and only four people have been killed as a result of rocket fire. While Israel’s Iron Dome is a wonder to behold and responsible for maintaining the safety of Israeli civilians from rocket fire, the numbers show that only 578 rockets were destroyed by Iron Dome Interceptions, or roughly 17 percent of all rockets fired at Israel.
Simple statistics show that there is something extraordinary occurring
"For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I am the one who helps you, declares the Lord; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel." Isaiah 41:13-14
Whether one chooses to believe that providence [GOD] is behind the overwhelming number of misfired rockets or not, one must admit that the number of casualties should in theory be higher. After all, having over 14 years experience, Hamas is quite experienced when it comes to firing rockets at Israel.
Combine the above observation with the somewhat historical and biblical outlook of the Israeli public and military, one is bound to come away with a viewpoint that at the very least recognizes the possibility of divine protection or intervention, thus setting the stage for the myriad of ‘bonafide’ stories telling of divine intervention sprouting forth like wildfire on social media networks in Israel.
Reports of gusts of wind that blew rockets aimed at major population center off course after the Iron Dome counter-attack numerous times had failed. Also wind uncovering land mines preventing Israeli soldier’s injury or death. [..snip] Many more reports increase faith and hope.
Israel Defense Forces: Iron Dome Missile Defense System is designed and developed by Israel and jointly funded through the United States. It is a response to the threats Israel faces from short and medium-range rockets and mortar shells fired into Israel by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza.
Whether these reports are true or false, one thing can be said for certain; the unusually low numbers in Israeli civilian casualties, is beyond human understanding. (Philippians 4:7) How can it be denied that divine providence protected the lives of IDF soldiers as well as Israeli civilians?
"The Lord says: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”
