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

"OBAMA BETRAYS ISRAEL!" "DEMANDS RETURN TO THE 1967 BORDERS!"


"OBAMA BETRAYS ISRAEL!"
 "DEMANDS RETURN TO THE 1967 BORDERS!"



May 19, 2011:  Mr. Obama announced that Israel must return to the 1967 borders, which would reduce Israel from a width of 45 miles to a width of 8 miles. This would leave Israel totally indefensible. It would be national suicide.  Prior to 1967, the Old City of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites were under the control of Jordan.  During the Jordanian occupation, Israel was denied access to these sites.  Since 1967, Israel has protected the Holy Places and permitted access to them by Jews, Christians and Muslims.  If Israel returns to the 1967 borders, she would be forced to give up Old City of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites.
  
Prime Minister Chamberlain of Britain did the same thing to Czechoslovakia prior to World War ll. Czech land was given to Hitler in order to appease him. It DID NOT work and resulted in the destruction of Czechoslovakia.  World War ensued. Israel is being put in the same dangerous position.  The God of Israel is watching with great displeasure.  

Joel 3:2 foretells how He will respond: "And I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; THE HAVE ALSO DIVIDED UP MY LAND!!"

Weep for America!  If Obama succeeds in forcing Israel into giving up her land, our nation will incur the wrath of God.  God help us all!!
