Israel: An Inside Look at the War.

war-israelWhile the Iranian ‘problem’ continues and Israel must at some point act so as not to allow the Iranians to get the bomb, the war in Gaza has subsided… at least for the moment. I am enclosing a post that was sent to me from Israel. It’s an insiders view of what has transpired there since the war with Hamas began in December.  You won’t get  this from the main stream press!

While the media in the West are lambasting Israel for killing women and children, and are saturating their viewers with horrific photos of bloodied corpses, Israel as a nation is undergoing an astonishing spiritual awakening as a result of this conflict. It is a pity that the world is unable to be witness to the miracles that are occurring here daily. Even the most jaded person would be amazed at the transformation of the people in this country. After many years of feeling the underdog and fearful of the approbation of the outside world, Israel is undergoing an absolute renaissance on a personal and national level. 
First and foremost, Israel as a nation has finally decided to throw aside the fear of being rejected by the nations and embrace its sovereign right to defend it’s citizens from terrorist attacks. What is so astonishing, for those who know Jews and particularly Israelis, is that a whopping 92% of Jewish Israelis actually AGREE that the war is necessary and just. The adage of 2 Jews, 3 opinions and 4 political parties has vaporized in the face of the national crisis we are in. Not only is there agreement among the populace, but also the left wing and the right wing of the political spheres agree. Even more amazing is the concordance among the various religious factions: Ashkenazi, Sephardic, reform and conservative, Zionists and anti-Zionist Jews are all joining together in prayer and supplication to the Almighty for salvation, protection and victory over our enemies. There are calls to prayer everywhere, regardless of denomination or ethnic background, everyone is united in looking towards the God of Israel to keep our soldiers safe and help us win against an evil enemy who has sworn never to stop until Israel as a nation is destroyed. 
The soldiers themselves seem to have a huge spiritual hunger, and are unified in not only asking for prayer but also praying themselves, wearing tzitzit (prayer tassles) into battle and carrying the book of Psalms with them. The Rabbis are calling the tzitzit “heavenly flak jackets!” Tent synagogues on the battlefield have no less than 10 sessions every morning, and it is reported that soldiers who never attended synagogue are now praying with tefillim. They have reason to cry out to God, since everyone is aware of the years of preparation of the bloodthirsty Hamas militants, their desire to kill, maim or kidnap Israeli soldiers is greater than their desire to live; they have been financed by Iran and supported by Syria and Hezbollah. Yet, we are defeating them, and there are reports daily of amazing miracles of protection and Divine direction during the battle. The following are just a few examples: A Hamas map was found, with booby-traps, landmines and sniper positions clearly spelled out. The IDF was able to counter each installation due to the information given. A large platoon of soldiers not realizing they were resting in a school that was booby-trapped, (discovered by a soldier relieving himself in the night), disarmed the bombs with no one hurt. A single soldier successfully fought off several Hamas terrorists trying to drag him into a tunnel, and all were captured. Hundreds of tunnels, hidden in homes under beds and kitchen cabinets, all full of live explosives and ammunition, yet none have exploded with IDF soldiers inside. 
While there have been soldiers wounded, there are miracles there as well. A young man who moved here alone from England less than 2 years ago to serve in the army was in an explosion, and thrown into the air. After being carried off the field by other soldiers and transported on a tractor to helicopter and then to hospital, the doctors were utterly stunned when they saw that a piece of shrapnel that went completely through his neck, missed the carotid artery, the jugular vein and the spinal cord by millimeters. After they removed it, he needed only stitches. Another soldier was shot through the back but the bullet missed his spinal cord and exited from the front. A young newlywed, in grave condition, inexplicably turned for the better and will recover to go home to his wife. 
On the ground level, bombs continue to fall, but here again, miracle after miracle is reported even on the local news. One hears the word “nes” (miracle) over and over by the reporters and the bystanders. A bomb heading toward 4 apartment buildings goes into a sewer pipe and explodes underground, damaging nothing above ground. An elderly woman caught in an apartment completely demolished by a bomb, walks out with scratches on her ankle. The mayor of Beersheva felt he should cancel school one day, and a rocket completely destroys an empty kindergarten. The elder housing complex that was hit in Nahariya had the sleeping quarters destroyed, but everyone had just gone to breakfast, so no one injured. A man leaves his car with his young daughter, and the car is blown up moments later after they entered a bomb shelter. If they had taken a few more seconds, he and his daughter would have been burned to a crisp. He was televised saying again and again it was a miracle. 
Similar stories like these were heard during the second Lebanon war, reported on Israeli radio and television, but no one in the west ever heard; only negative propaganda from the terrorists was reported, whose aim was to malign Israel and make us look like a nation of bloodthirsty killers. One has to grieve over the terrible destruction of the cities in Gaza and the horrific human tragedy going on there, but the responsibility for the suffering and death is directly on the doorstep of the Hamas leadership. These deluded people think that their god, Allah, will give them victory, and have entered into a battle with the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that they will never win. We are literally living in times like those of the scripture, when the Lord told Elisha all the plans of the enemy, until they began to wonder if there was a spy in their ranks. 
There is hope here and unity of resolve, not despair. Even the parents of Yoni Natanel, killed by friendly fire, were quoted as saying that their son died “for the sanctification of God’s name,” and forgave and blessed those who accidently fired at his unit. There is such heroism and courage here, one wishes that the world could see it, but as one of our journalists said, the media have left their brains at the door of Ben Gurion Airport. They are many miles away from the actual battle, wear flak jackets and helmets for the cameras, and then take them off to have cappuccino at the local restaurant! 
Fortunately, Israelis are accustomed to being misunderstood and maligned by the outside world. At this point, everyone knows we have a job to do, and we are becoming more and more aware that there is a greater Power than us is on our side. We are fulfilling our commission to be a “Light to the Nations.” Israel learned from the failure of the Lebanon war, and prepared well to fight the terrorists who clearly said they wanted to destroy us. The rest of the nations have not remembered the threats of Hitler, and how the Jewish people were almost wiped out because no one wanted to believe he actually meant what he said. Contrary to those who want to hide their heads in the sands of political correctness, there is a right and a wrong side in this conflict. It is a battle between darkness and light. Fortunately, we have a God who was never wishy-washy about defending Israel against her enemies, when His People cried out to Him for help. The outside world is missing the miracle of a righteous God who hears the prayers of the humble, and defends what is His! 
If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land (2 Chron 7:14).

  1. Lynn,

    Good Blog today, you do an exceptional job with the Blogs everyday. Thank You!

    I believe Israel pulled out of Gaza for at least 3 reasons. The Israeli’s are unsure of the intentions of the new USA President Obama. My second reason is that Israel may be preparing to go into Iran and being in Gaza may stretch their military to thin. Then lastly, Hezbollah may act up next especially if Iran is attacked to stop the Iranian nuclear program.


  2. Mr. Marzulli,
    I am so refreshed by your blogging what we see here daily as facts on the ground and yet the whole world denies.

    Also, thank you so so much for your show on The Q-Files of 21 January 2009.
    Again, you speak word for word what I think and believe.
    I too am completely on the same page as you.
    You absolutely refresh and comfort me with your positions.
    Of course we may be wrong about some things, but until the Lord tells us so….
    Thank you!

  3. Hi Lynn,

    Wow! This is awesome! As I read this I couldn’t help but think that this apparent prayer revival in Israel is in preparation for the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war, which I believe we will probably see in the near future. I personally believe that this exchange could very well occur prior to the catching away (rapture) of the Church.

    Ezekiel 38:18 – 23 chronicles the judgement that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will rain down on Magog and the coalition of nations joining them. The Jewish people have been miracauously delivered and protected down through history, often in spite of themselves! Ezekiel 39:1 – 9 further explains how God will deal with the enemies of the Jewish people in this future battle.

    Again, I believe that we are living in the prepartation time for this. What an exciting time to be alive!

  4. lynn,

    surprisingly, our wed night church service was unexpectedly joyous and buoyant!
    it would seem that there HAS been a change in the spiritual realm, almost like creation was rejoicing that another step in Gods plan and prophetic timeclock had been accomplished?

    it made me ponder on barak obamas confession of Faith in Jesus…
    is barak the real deal? (real Christian?)
    was george w. bush the real deal?
    only time will tell…

    however, one thing i DO know…
    as Christians, we will NOT go out with a whimper…
    as Christians we will go from Glory to Glory!

    i hope the economy can come back from its current free fall…
    but even if it doesnt, my Gods Grace is MORE than sufficient to supply ALL our needs through Christ Jesus!

    It is time to draw near to God with our hearts and not just our mouths…
    and pray to our Father to reveal himself to our unsaved family and friends around the world…

    hal lindsey is fond of saying that the age and times of the gentiles is over…
    and the age and times of the chosen people (Jews) has begun…
    because of the tremendous upheaval that the world has been going through,
    im kinda glad to see it happening!

    it sounds like Israel has a new found resolve…and i for one welcome it!
    perhaps this is a sign that the age and times of the jews has begun?

  5. Perspective!!! The truth is there isn’t much separating Dena Gewanter’s newly revived or “awakened” Israel from it’s Middle East neighbors. In the case of the conflict in Gaza w/Hamas, neither side has any real regard for international consensus of the war, a war steeped in religious dogma rationalizing the right to inflict “horrific” acts on each other.
    Oh and BTW, Magog carries a bigger stick than Hamas. I wouldn’t get too happy!!!

  6. Lynn, your blog today ended with this verse: “If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land(2 Chron 7:14).” This is not going to happen until the Israeli people repent and accept Jesus as their saviour. Peter said “whom ye slew (speaking to Israel) and hanged on a tree, Acts 5:30-31.” Paul said, “blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. Romans 11:25.” At the closing of the battle of armageddon when Jesus returns Zechariah prophesied “they (the people of Israel) shall look upon me whom they have pierced”, that is when the Israeli people finally humble themselves and accept Jesus. Read Zechariah chapter 12-14. Ezekiel prophesied at the start of the millennium, “So that the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.” (Ezekiel 39:22-29) This is as brief and to the point as I can say it without quoting the entire Bible. Everyone MUST accept Jesus (Jews, Muslims, whoever) there are NO acceptions!!! Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is the Christ. Sorry but God is no respecter persons. Acts 10:34.

    In service to the only Lord God and Jesus His Christ,
