Israel, Are You Listening?
"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (2 Peter 1:21)

Does God currently speak to His chosen people as He spoke to them in earlier times? By inspiration of the Holy Spirit, King David penned the following, of how God would deal with enemies who come against His beloved Israel:

"...shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them." (Psalms 144:6)

Israel, in cooperation with the United States, has developed the most advanced missile defense system in the world. The name chosen by Israel for its' new defense system, is "Arrow". Much improved over the U.S. made Patriot missile used in the Gulf War of the early 1990's, the Arrow is designed to intercept incoming enemy missiles at a higher altitude.

The Apostle John, also writing by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, says in the Revelation:

"...there followed hail and fire mingled with blood..." (Revelation 8:7)

As the nation of Israel prepares for a possible attack by Iraq, they entered a higher stage of alert on Wednesday, January 15. The name chosen by Israel for this advanced state of national defense, is "Red Hail". Israel has distributed gas masks to Israeli citizens, and is utilizing television and radio instructions on how to respond if a chemical or biological weapons strike takes place against their nation.

Does God currently speak to His chosen people as He spoke to them in earlier times? Absolutely, but for the moment, they don't realize what He's telling them:

"But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ." (2 Corinthians 3:14)

It's not just a coincidence that Israel chose the names 'Arrow' and 'Red Hail'. God is talking to Israel, providing forwarning for the terrible time of trouble that's soon coming to their doorstep in the Tribulation. But, He's also showing them to whom they will need to turn, in order to understand Him clearly:

"Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away." (2 Corinthians 3:16)

As Christians, we love Israel, and pray for health, happiness, prosperity and peace for God's chosen people. But, our heart weeps for them, that they don't yet realize by God's Word what's coming, and what they will have to endure for them to see their one, true Savior.

God is talking to you, Israel...please listen.
