Our Prophetic Perspective
Everyone knows the biblical story of David and Goliath and how the little Israelite boy killed the giant enemy. The present day Israeli-Arab conflict sound just like the story of David and Goliath. Tiny Israel has proven over and over again that the giant Arab world is no match for Israel's military power. During the six-day war of 1967 and the Yom-Kippur war of 1973 Israel defeated the Arab enemies even though the Israeli army was vastly outnumbered by Arab troops and yet, the Arab world keeps on insisting that they can destroy Israel. God said through the prophet Zechariah:
''Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. . . In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.'' (Zechariah 12:2-3,6)
In this passage God says that when all the Arab nations that surround Israel come against the Jewish state,He will make the governors of Judah (ancient southern part of modern Israel) like fire among the wood and like a torch of fire in a sheaf to devour all the enemies of Israel. The Israeli Defense Forces today are so powerful that whenever the Arab nations make war against Israel,they are devoured like wood in the fire. Tiny David has and will always defeat Goliath,the giant enemy.
