Israel’s Pillar of Cloud

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) are calling their latest efforts to combat Hamas-backed terrorism from Gaza operation “Amud Anan” which in English is Pillar of Cloud. It is a reference to the following passages in Exodus:

Exodus 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

Exodus 14:19-20 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.This is especially interesting considering that Egypt may once again be involved.  Egypt’s leader has met with Hamas, the terrorist organization behind the current attacks from Gaza and yesterday several rocket launched from Sinai which belongs currently to Egypt hit outside of Jerusalem.  No matter what other countries may do, God will protect Israel.  Just as He once showed up as a pillar of cloud to defend Israel, He will preserve Israel.Exodus 14:13-14 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Israel warns of escalation after being attacked

Today, Israel was fired upon by Hamas backed Palestinian militants.  “Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak signaled that Israel is ready to escalate its military operations against Gaza after at least one long-range missile was fired at Tel Aviv by Palestinian militants.  The missile attack and the volume of fire in general toward Israel “is an escalation and there will be a price to pay,” Barak said on Channel 2 television yesterday.  It was the first such attack on Israel’s commercial hub since Iraqi missiles in 1991 during the Gulf War.”  (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-14/israel-hits-gaza-targets-as-air-strike-kills-hamas-leader.html)

(Reuters) – “Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip targeted Tel Aviv on Thursday in the first attack on Israel’s commercial capital in 20 years, raising the stakes in a showdown between Israel and the Palestinians that is moving towards all-out war.”

JERUSALEM — Israeli aircraft pummeled rocket launching operations of Gaza militants on Friday, and as troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers massed near the Palestinian territory, signaling a ground invasion might be growing near.

The picture below shows the rocket threat to Israel from the Gaza strip.   Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

Redeeming the Time

With the time change occurring tonight, I thought about the following passage:

Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.   15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,  16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

I do believe as a preacher and student of prophecy, that we are indeed in the last days.  Not only are world events fulfilling prophecy but the attitude of the church in this day does as well.  The night before Jesus was crucified, He led His few friends to the garden of Gethsemane to pray.  He told Peter, James and John, “…tarry ye here, and watch with me.”  It wasn’t long before He found them asleep while He had been praying for them and for us.  And then when Judas shows up with soldiers ready to arrest our Lord, Peter draws his sword and cuts off the ear of Malchus, one of the high priest’s servants.  Jesus stops Peter and says, “Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” (Matthew 26:52)  Like Peter, the church in America has fallen asleep in the last 30 years during a crucial time when she should have been watching and expending all efforts to get the gospel out.  Now, like Peter many in the church are waking up to find many of our values and morals are under attack and we draw our sword and begin to fight the wrong fight.
