A MIRACLE IN A GUN FIGHT
Does God still intervene in history and produce miracles? The headlines say no. The Bible says yes. I’ll stick with the Bible. You might respond, “Yeah, give me an example.” Here’s one.
Recently I have been studying the history of how the nation of Israel began in 1948 and how the Jewish people were sustained during the attack by the surrounding Arab nations immediately after independence was declared. Three thousand years earlier the scripture proclaimed that the Jew would return to Jerusalem. Would they survive?
In the late ‘40’s, the survivors of Hitler’s death camps had been escaping to Israel, hoping the United Nations would declare a Jewish state in Palestine. Once United Nations Resolution 181 passed, David Ben-Gurion declared the establishment of the nation of Israel. The Arab armies immediately attacked.
During the warfare, five Jewish defenders were perched on the edge of Old City walls as a multitude of Jordanian soldiers advanced toward them. The five men began firing and stopping some of the attackers, but the multitude kept coming. The Jews realized that they had only a few bullets left and would be quickly wiped out.
The defenders turned to each other and began praying. They called on YHWH, the God of Sinai, and prepared to die.
Suddenly the Arabs stopped. They began to cover their eyes. Someone cried out a blood-curdling scream. The Arabian soldiers turned and began running back down the hill. The five Jewish defenders stared almost in disbelief. What happened?
Several years later one of the five men met one of the Arab soldiers. He couldn’t miss the opportunity to ask him why they ran.
“Didn’t you see him?” the Arab said. “That gigantic figure standing behind you. He was huge! Scared us to death. We ran!”
The figure? An angel protecting God’s chosen people?
The point. God protects His own and that includes a much wider circle than only the Jews. His promises and purposes never change and last forever. You can be part of that special group.
