Know You're Led and Protected!

Exodus 14:19-20 And the Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them. So it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. Thus it was a cloud and darkness to the one, and it gave light by night to the other, so that the one did not come near the other all that night.

As most of you know, this past week the conflict in Israel has escalated. The IDF has termed Israel’s military operation, “amood anan”, which in literal Hebrew, means, “pillar of cloud”. In English it has been rendered, “pillar of defense”. The term is a direct reference from the Exodus of Israel from Egypt when they were led out of slavery and protected by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.[Exodus 13:21]. The pillar both led (directed and guided) and protected the children of Israel from the Egyptian army…providing both leadership and protection.

We believe that through the prayers of the saints, and because of the Lord’s faithfulness to Israel, that the Israeli Defense Force is being guided and protected and that our nation is under the providential care of YHVH, our God.

We have often reminded our spiritual community of the constant reality of the spiritual war in which we are engaged. And as the earthly conflict here has escalated, we also suspect that many of you are under attacks of various kinds. Just as God watches over Israel, He continues to watch over us now, and His angelic host are still protecting every believer as His Spirit guides us through the barrage we face from our enemies.

Those who stand in faith here in Israel are not afraid. Why should we fear if God is with us; who can be against us?

So stand strong and have courage knowing the Lord is watching over and protecting you – but more than that, He wants to lead you to victory over every spiritual battle you have to face today.
