GOD DWELLS IN JERUSALEM FOREVER

1 SAMUEL 14:1**NOW IT CAME TO PASS UPON A DAY, THAT JONATHAN THE SON OF SAUL SAID UNTO THE YOUNG MAN THAT BARE (CARRIED) HIS ARMOR; COME, AND LET US GO OVER TO THE PHILISTINES GARRISON, THAT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE. BUT HE TOLD NOT HIS FATHER (KING SAUL).

VERSE 5-6**THE FOREFRONT OF THE ONE (A PASSAGE) WAS SITUATE NORTHWARD OVER AGAINST MICHMASH……(BETWEEN JERUSALEM AND JERICHO) ……..,AND JONATHAN SAID TO THE YOUNG MAN THAT BARE HIS ARMOR…….IT MAY BE THAT THE LORD WILL WORK FOR US; FOR THERE IS NO RESTRAINT TO THE LORD TO SAVE BY MANY OR BY FEW.***AS JONATHAN AND AMOUR BEARER CLIMBED UP THE STEEP PASSAGE AT MICHMASH AND DEFEATED ABOUT 20 MEN (VERSE 14-15) THE EARTH QUAKED: SO IT WAS A VERY GREAT TREMBLING AND CONFUSION AS THE ENEMY BATTLED AND DEFEATED EACH OTHER. VERSE 23**SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL THAT DAY……..

THREE THOUSAND YEARS LATER IN 1917, GOD USED THE BRITISH ARMY, TO BEGIN GATHERING HIS PEOPLE TO JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL. THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE WHICH OCCUPIED ISRAEL FOR 400 YEARS STILL OCCUPIED THE VALLEY AGAINST MICHMASH AND BEGAN MASSING TO RETAKE JERUSALEM. HOWEVER, A BRITISH OFFICER REMEMBERED THE STORY OF JONATHAN IN 1 SAMUEL 14 AND AGAIN READ THE BIBLE STORY.

THE OFFICER TOOK HIS PLAN TO THE GENERAL WHO USED THE SAME TACTIC TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY**THE EARTH QUAKED WHEN BRITISH HORSE TROOPERS RUSHED FROM THE PLAINS AS ALL TURKISH ATTENTION WAS DIVERTED TO A SMALL FORCE FIRING FROM ABOVE THE STEEP PASSAGE. THE SURPRISED TURKS WERE QUICKLY DEFEATED**SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL THAT DAY.

PRIOR TO ISRAEL’S INDEPENDENCE IN 1948, A VISITOR CAME TO A PASSOVER FEAST IN JERUSALEM, THE FATHER GAVE HIS YOUNG DAUGHTER, SHULA COHEN IN MARRIAGE TO THE VISITOR. HE WAS A WEALTHY AND INFLUENTIAL OLDER MAN FROM BEIRUT, LEBANON. SURELY, LED BY ALMIGHTY GOD SHE WAS INVITED TO THE HOME OF THE PRIME MINISTER. SHE QUICKLY BECAME CLOSE FRIENDS OF HIS FAMILY, PARTICULARLY WITH HIS DAUGHTER NEAR THE AGE AS SHULA.

SHULA WAS IMMEDIATELY ESTABLISHED AS A FAMILY MEMBER, IN DECEMBER 1947, SHULA WAS INVITED TO THE PRIME MINISTER’S ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY ALONG WITH HIGH RANKING DIGNITARIES AND GENERALS FROM SYRIA AND LEBANON. SHULA OVERHEARD DETAILS OF THE ARAB NATIONS TO ATTACK ISRAEL WHEN THE BRITISH GRANTED INDEPENDENCE. BY THE GRACE AND DIRECTION OF THE ALMIGHTY, SHULA MANAGED TO SMUGGLE THIS INFORMATION TO ISRAEL**SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL THAT DAY.

SHULA COHEN CONTINUED TO SEND VITAL INFORMATION TO ISRAEL FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. EVENTUALLY, SHE WAS ARRESTED AS A SPY. SHE WAS VISCOUSLY BEATEN AND TORTURED EVEN IN THE COURTROOM WHERE NAILS WERE DRIVEN INTO HER FEET TO THE DELIGHT OF THE COURT SPECTATORS. WITHOUT CONFESSION OR EVIDENCE, THE COURT SENTENCED HER TO DEATH. SHULA’S HUSBAND PAID OFF HIGH OFFICIALS TO REDUCE THIS SENTENCE TO LIFE. AT THE END OF THE 6 DAY WAR IN 1967, OUR GOD AND ISRAEL REMEMBERED HER AND SHE WAS RELEASED ALONG WITH HER CHILDREN AND RETURNED TO JERUSALEM. A TRUE MIRACLE! **SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL FOR 6 DAYS OF WAR AND REMEMBERED SHULA FOR DELIVERANCE ALSO!

OTHER MIRACLES OCCURRED DURING THE YOM KIPPUR WAR IN 1973.

WHILE THE SURROUNDING ARAB NATIONS ARMED TO THE TEETH WITH RUSSIAN TANKS, PLANES AND ARMS, ISRAEL HAD MINIMAL WEAPONS OF WAR. WITH THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL LIKELY, GOLDA MAIER, PRIME MINISTER AWAKENED PRESIDENT NIXON BEFORE DAWN. HER VOICE SOUNDED LIKE THE VOICE OF HIS MOTHER AS SHE APPEALED FOR ARMS TO SAVE ISRAEL. WHO CAN DENY THEIR MOTHER WHEN THEY ASK YOU TO SAVE THEM FROM EMINENCE OF DEATH? PRESIDENT NIXON ORDERED A HUGE OVERNIGHT AIRLIFT OF SUPPLIES. **SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL THAT DAY!

WITH ADEQUATE ARMS, ISRAEL ADVANCED TO THE GOLAN HEIGHTS WHERE SYRIA HAD PLANTED ACRES AND ACRES OF MINES TO PREVENT INCURSION. WITH THE LIGHT OF THE MOON, SOLDIERS BEGAN INCHING FORWARD WITH BAYONETS TO PENETRATE AND DISARM EVERY INCH OF EARTH FOR LANDMINES. THIS TRADITIONAL METHOD WOULD REQUIRE MONTHS BUT THE LORD IMMEDIATELY SENT A POWERFUL WIND EXPOSING EACH MINE PLANTED AS DEEP AS A YARD. **SO THE LORD SAVED ISRAEL THAT DAY!

A MIRACLE IS WAITING FOR EACH HUMAN WHO HEARS OR READS THIS MESSAGE AND BELIEVES THAT THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB

WILL PERFORM THEIR MIRACLE BY GIVING EVERLASTING LIFE TO THOSE WHO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS

WILL YOU NOW BELIEVE THAT GOD SENT HIS SON, THE PERFECT LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH, THE MESSIAH CHRIST JESUS. TO SHED HIS BLOOD TO WASH AWAY OUR SIN TO MAKE US PERFECT AND WITHOUT BLEMISH, SO WE WILL BE ACCEPTABLE IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN! OUR GOD WILL IMMEDIATELY PERFORM THIS MIRACLE IF YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF NOW! DO IT NOW!
