Does This Storm Symbolize God's Divine Protection Of Israel?

This story may give you pause if you were worried about the threats facing the state of Israel. A video, showing an ominous cloud of rain, dust and smoke, has gone viral after the uploaders informed viewers that the cloud formed along the border between Syria and Israel – an area that was recently the site of the first battle between the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and ISIS militants.

According to the uploaders, the cloud shown in the video, which has been posted on Facebook and YouTube, was the prelude to a devastating storm that rippled along the Syrian border without affecting the area along Israel’s side of the border: the much-fought-over Golan Heights region. “This strange storm of what appears to be dust, cloud and rain did NOT cross the border fence into Israel. It sat like a barrier between ISIS and Israel,” wrote the uploader on Facebook.

The video also shows dozens of IDF soldiers watching the cloud in awe, taking photos of the bizarre weather event while speculating about whether the storm was a biblical sign. Since being uploaded, the video has gained enormous traffic on Facebook, receiving more than 140,000 shares, 5 million views, over 60,000 likes and some 29,000 comments.

The bulk of these comments agreed that God has intervened to protect Israel against its many enemies. “God protecting his chosen people yet again,” commented Orlando Houston. “If they had cell phones back when God parted the Red Sea and led the Israelites it would have looked like this!” wrote Margaret Tilford. Magda Botha was equally convinced, writing: “It is the hand of God the Almighty showing the world He is in control!”

Many commenters compared the incident to a passage from the Bible which describes God, in the form of a cloud, leading Israelites to safety. The passage reads: “And Hashem went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; that they might go by day and by night; the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, departed not from before the people. Exodus 13:21-22”

Only 4 days before the appearance of the mighty storm, this area was the site of the first engagement between IDF soldier and ISIS militants. The violent engagement began when a group of four ISIS militants – who remained across the border in Syria – began firing on patrolling Israeli soldiers in the Golan Heights. This turned out to be a mistake as the Israeli soldiers – professionally trained and armed – engaged the militants and killed all four of them.

The small-scale battle made headlines after being reported as the first direct ISIS attack against Israeli troops. In an act of retaliation, IDF fighter jets targeted known ISIS targets in Syria. The damage caused by this attack remains classified.

The swift rout of ISIS forces has further strengthened many people’s belief that the mysterious cloud barrier is a sign of Divine Protection.
