I came across an video taken during an actual air-raid in Israel. The video showcased the Iron Dome, Israel’s short-range missile defence system, that simultaneously intercepting 15 separate Qassam rockets fired by Hamas from Gaza. What caught me was the real evil intent of killing and the people living it as part of their daily lives; all the while for the rest of the world, we had taken the peace for granted. The air-raid siren played by the Israeli representative during UN council meeting paled in comparison.
You will not dread the terrors (pachad) that haunt the night
or enemy arrows (khetz) that fly in the day
Or the plagues that lurk in darkness
or the disasters that wreak havoc at noon.
A thousand may fall on your left,
ten thousand may die on your right,
but these horrors won’t come near you. Psalms 91:5-7
Even in the midst of such terror, God (Elohai) the Father, in His Word has already promised and assured His divine protection on us. We will not fear the enemy’s arrows (khetz) that will fly towards us. Even if a thousand fall on our left and ten thousand on our right, these horrors will not come near us! This is a small preview.
