Galilee And The Yom Kippur War Of 1973

God Protects His People
Psalm 121:4
“4 Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.”


Of all the nations and ethnic groups on earth, none has been more hated and persecuted than the Jewish people.  Yet amazingly, because of God’s grace and mercy, they have remained intact, their ancient language revived, and they came back as a nation after some 2,000 years. 😮 
Mess With Israel At You Own Risk.
All those other nations that came against the Jews are no longer around. They have all crumbled and disappeared from the world scene. Let that be a lesson to anyone who wants to do them harm.
Don’t ever try and mess with God’s people thinking you can get away with it, ESPECIALLY ISRAEL!  God’s beloved Son, Jesus, was born into this world as a Jew.  They are His natural family and still beloved for the Father’s sake, though many do not yet know their Messiah.  Nevertheless, He will NOT put up with any nonsense where they are concerned. Come against them at your own peril.
Sneak Attack.

Just in case there are any skeptics out there, below is an actual event that happened in 1973.  It is one proof among many others that, OH YEAH: God protects His people!

The regions of Zebulun and Naphtali make up the greater Galilee region. It is a very beautiful area.  Jesus Himself spent much of His time there. In fact, 3/4 of all His miracles were performed here.

Eleven of the twelve disciples hailed from Galilee. The only exception was Judas who was from the same tribe as our Lord Jesus: Judah.

In 1973, on their holiest day of the year, “Yom Kippur,” the Day of Atonement, Israel was invaded by Syrian tanks.  Attack by anyone on that day was the furthest thing from their minds. To say that they were taken by surprise would be an understatement! 😲

Mysterious Cessation Of Hostilities.

For some unknown (at the time) reason, though, the invading Syrians stopped their relentless advance as they came into the beautiful region of Galilee.  Inexplicably they stopped…..just long enough to give the Israeli military time to gear up and respond.

And respond they did!  Not only did Israel win the war, they got back EVEN MORE LAND THAN THEY HAD BEFORE! 😮

After it was all over, the Syrian commander was asked why his troops stopped advancing.  His answer took everyone by surprise.  He said that they were winning anyway so they figured they could stop and admire the beauty of the Galilee area.

Others, however, saw something else entirely that stopped them in dead in their tracks. 👇🏻

Invisible Army.

The Syrians had greater numbers and were much better armed than the Israelis, who were not only wounded, they were running low on ammo.  Inexplicably, the advancing Syrians ceased firing and threw down their weapons.  Some even lay face down on the ground, shouting in Arabic, “Salam:  Peace!” allowing the Israeli rag-tag forces to capture them without firing a shot.
You see, the Syrians saw something the Jewish fighters did not:  An army of warrior Angels!
This is not the first time God has defended Israel with angelic armies.  Remember what happened in 2 Kings 6?  The king Syria sent a great army to capture Elisha and they had surrounded the city where he was.  His servant was terrified, but Elisha sais something amazing in verse 17:  “Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
For a whole lot more on this topic backed up by the Book of Psalms, you may follow the link below.  It will blow your mind!

How awesome is our God that He not only uses the beauty of His land to protect His people,  He sends His own personal army!  The Lion of the Tribe on Judah watches over and protects His people!  That includes us, Church!  Behold, greater is He that is with and in us than he that is in the world!

The message is clear:  HANDS OFF GOD’S PEOPLE!  Touch them at your own peril.  Is that a threat?  You betcha!…..and a promise.  Our enemies may come at us one way, but flee before us SEVEN WAYS.  In other words, they’ll be completely defeated with MANY CASUALTIES!

 What an amazing display of God’s goodness and protection in the true story of Galilee and the Yom Kippur war!
