2014_08 God intervenes to keep Israel safe

A few weeks ago, it was reported that when one of the terrorists from Gaza was asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively, he replied,

“We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.”

Last week, an Iron Dome commander reported this:

“A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.

“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.

“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’

“I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”

The Times of Israel has also reported a senior officer in Israel’s army saying he “witnessed a miraculous occurrence, the likes of which he had never seen before during his military career.”

When a predawn raid was delayed past sunrise, his troops were in danger of being exposed. Suddenly, a heavy fog quickly descended to shroud their movements and only when his soldiers were in a secure position, did the fog lift.

    I’ve heard it said that Muslims worship the same God that Christians and Jews do, but that terrorist quoted above saying “their God” certainly does not consider Allah to be Yahweh!

    You’ll find all kinds of folks in all kinds of religions who think in my god / your god terms. It’s superstitious (and theological) ignorance. It’s usually not about God, it’s about power totems, like battling team ghost spirits.

    When folks conceive of gods in this way, it always reminds me of how Jack Kirby first draw Thor (who had previously been a comic book character) for Marvel, and then back-invented his version of Odin and Asgard and all that. Then he brought in Hercules (duking it out with Thor, of course) and so there was Odin of the Norse gods and Zeus of the Olympian gods; IIRC, later, Marvel later threw in Krishna from Nirvana and others. Different “heavens” as little islands floating in separate dimensions.

    Kirby went off to DC comics and created the New Gods, a whole universe of original mythology, with the Edenic world of the good Lord All-Father and the smoking, foul, firepit-riddled world of evil Lord Darkseid (pronounced dark side) locked in a secret pact to keep balance in the universe, but set at odds through uncounted ages (and as long as DC can milk the franchise).

    My god / your god is superheroes and supervillains all the way down to Yggdrasil, but has nothing to do with genuine theology. Once you understand God is not some competitive superguy struggling against some other nearly-as-powerful princling gods always vying for the scepter of power and the golden throne, but instead understand the One God’s omnipotence, omniscience, and absoluteness, then the whole “none other before me” thing becomes “well, duh.”

    I’d be glad to help anyone who believes in One God by any name come to better know the true nature of our Creator-Father.

    But, if Jimmy Jihad wants to think Yahweh’s hand pushed Allah’s rocket into the sea, I’ve got no problem with that.
