GOD'S HAND IN THE SIX DAY WAR



"GOD'S HAND IN THE SIX DAY ARAB - ISRAELI WAR" 

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?
 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD."  Psalms 27

The war lasted exactly six days and on the seventh day the army of Israel rested, just like God did after the six days of creation!  Israeli General Moshe Dayan placed a note in the Western Wall of the liberated Temple Mount.  Written on the piece of paper were these words, "This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes."  Psalms 118:23
