This appeared recently, and while I do not know all of the back details to this story, you be the judge:
A massive storm captured on video hovering over Syria’s border with Israel where Islamic State militants had attacked Israeli Defense Forces four days earlier is being hailed as a miracle by many, but some Christian scholars suggest it’s best not to read too much into the weather phenomenon.
Israel News Online posted the video on its Facebook page Thursday showing footage of a storm cloud billowing over Israel’s border with Syria that never crossed into Israeli territory.
“This strange storm of what appears to be dust, cloud and rain did NOT cross the border fence into Israel. It sat like a barrier between ISIS and Israel,” the Facebook post read.
The video has already been viewed nearly 7 million times and shared 200,000 times, with many hailing it as evidence that God was protecting Israel.
“God is in control of all things, and so of that storm too,” said Gerald McDermott, Anglican
chair of divinity at Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama, in an interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday.
Indeed, one of our biggest ongoing tasks is to sort out the outright propaganda and fake news from the real news. There have been stories in the past that have been shown to be outright fakes, and sometimes difficult to distinguish from real stories.
However, miracles do happen. ‘They are just as real now as they were in Jesus time. Because God is real and He does love us. They are as real as Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. They are as real as death, judgment, hell, and heaven, and they will be maid plainly real upon His Second Coming when he will judge the living and the dead.
