Egypt, Syria, Jordan and two additional Arab armies had been supplied with $2 billion dollars worth of military equipment by the Soviet Union. Bolster by this, five powerful Arab armies devised an evil plan to finally destroy the nation of Israel. The odds were vastly against the small Jewish State. The outcome appeared catastrophic. The situation hopeless. However, it is in the worst of times that God does the most miraculous of things.
At 7:45 a.m. on June 5, 1967, Israel launched the most successful preemptive air strike in military history. Within a few hours, virtually the entire Egyptian Air Force lay in smoldering wreckage. Fighting on three fronts, against the combined might of five different armies, Israel secured a stunning victory in a mere six days. How did this tiny state manage to overcome an Arab enemy that had twice as many soldiers, three times as many tanks, and four times as many airplanes? The answer.....the God of Israel!!!
The Psalmist David declared,
"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
