Rare occurrences in Israel are often treated as things that are indicators of massive global intergalactic shifts. A cynic may say that we should not read too much into these phenomenon. A mystic may look at these things as if they are amazing occurrences that indeed portend amazing times. But, it would seem to me that it is not necessary at all to try to figure out who’s right. We don’t need mystical things to prove God’s amazing interference in the Holy Land. There are too many things that have happened that are beyond human logic that one doesn’t need to break their head on whether or not God’s involvement in the Holy Land is different than anywhere else in the world.
A Modern-Day Miracle in the Holy Land
The greatest miracle of all is not what the State of Israel has accomplished in so little time. It is the very emergence of the State of Israel a mere 3 years following the greatest systematic tragedy in the history of mankind – the Holocaust. It is hard to understand to what extent the Jewish people were on the ropes in mid 1945. They had just lost more than 1/3 of it’s total population. The Jewish people all over the world had around 1/2 a million Jews in a non-State British mandated area of the Land of Israel. It was not clear at all as to whether or not there would be a State of Israel at all. The half a million Jews that were still in Europe were a weak and sick remnant of what they once were. The rest of the Jewish community – in the Soviet Union, United States, England, and South America were not in any way a thriving community. They were a tattered and non-unified nation with a lack of a core community anywhere to build on. Then, out of seemingly nowhere, the State of Israel was ratified by the fledgling United Nations. But that was not the end of the story. It was just the beginning of what would be one of the most miraculous battles in the history of modern warfare. The lack of arms did not keep the untrained Israel Defense Forces from somehow surviving the onslaught of 6 Arab armies. Israel lost a full 1% of it’s population. 6,000 Jews were killed of the 600,000. But, they had some help from the One above.
