The Lesson Of The Scuds

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In the first Gulf War, Saddam Hussein threatened to destroy Israel with all the arms in his possession, including chemical. Israel was told not to fight back. Iraq sent 39 Scud missiles into Israel. Miraculously, only two people died as a result of direct hits. Equally amazing is that not one missile had chemical weapons. The seasonal rains suddenly began the first day of the war and continued for the next 4-6 weeks, together with high winds. The U.S. military credited the weather as helping to convince the Iraqis that chemical weapons would not be smart, because the winds were blowing against Iraq. The same phenomena was observed in Kuwait. The wind patterns shifted during the war. God is amazing, even using something like the wind!

The Bible says, “He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” He is the same One who happens to keep you. He who kept the flaming missiles of Saddam Hussein out will protect you from the flaming missiles of the evil one. He who keeps Israel will keep you. He who keeps you will neither slumber nor sleep. Why? So you can.
