In 1948 Israel in a defensive war managed to survive and hang on to its declared independence. The restored State of Israel won a little extra land above and beyond what was granted to them by the UN in 1947. However on June 5th 1967 after Egypt threatened Israel with annihilation, massed its forces in Sinai and blockaded the Red Sea port of Eilat; Israel’s only port that allowed them to service its trading interests in the Indian Ocean and Asia. Israel pre-empted in an historic all out air force attack that destroyed the Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian air force capability. In just a few hours Israel through the Hand of God obliterated the Arab air forces and in just six days destroyed their land forces and retook the Old City of Jerusalem for its possession, which had not been in independent Jewish hands for over 2500 years.
For Jewish and Christian believers this was the start of G-d’s war on terror as it was foretold by my ancestor King David in Pslam 83.
Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
5 For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
9 Deal with them as with Midian,
As with Sisera,
As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
10 Who perished at En Dor,
Who became as refuse on the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb,
Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said, “Let us take for ourselves
The pastures of God for a possession.”
13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
Like the chaff before the wind!
14 As the fire burns the woods,
And as the flame sets the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them with Your tempest,
And frighten them with Your storm.
16 Fill their faces with shame,
That they may seek Your name, O Lord.
17 Let them be confounded and dismayed forever;
Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
18 That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth.
Verse 11 of Psalm 83 is significant as it describes what the Messiah will do when he comes. Zebah and Zalmuna were the Midianiate Kings that were killed by Gideon in the Book of Judges 8:21-22
The Bible also describes that Gideon plucked the “Crescent Moon Ornaments from the Camels necks” after he killed the Midianite Kings. In other words the Messiah will destroy the Islamic horde and their mosques, as their mosques are where you find the crescent moons on the minerets or on the domes of the main sanctuaries. The Bible is clearly describing what happens and who it is happening to.
The Six Day War was a miracle that as God shows us: the weak he will make mighty, the sick will be healed and evil will be vanquished. The Six Day War was not just a great victory for Israel but it was a message from God, showing us that he is in control and his nation Israel will not only be restored but it will be a sign that God’s war on Satanic Islam will be patiently waged with the final culmination of the Messiah’s coming and shaming HIS enemies.
We are in a time of Evil versus Righteousness, we are not in a time of appeasement of evil. Those that appease evil or engage in evil will face the ultimate judgement.
Will you stand with us for righteousness?
