What would God do if the nation of Israel really knew their Savior as their Messiah, they turned each and everyone one of them in prayer for God's defense against their enemies? Why are they trusting in their might when God says the strength of a man's legs are useless.
Israel remember Esther, Hadassah...she fasted and prayed along with her people the Jews. God gave them victory over their enemies.
I don't believe Israel stands alone. She is highly engaged in global activities. From heritage.org...
Trade is significant for Israel’s economy; the combined value of exports and imports equals 57 percent of GDP. The average applied tariff rate is 2.2 percent. Nontariff barriers impede some trade. In general, government policies do not significantly interfere with foreign investment. Financial institutions offer a wide range of services. Capital markets are evolving as part of Israel’s effort to reinvent itself as a regional financial hub.
Psalm 147:10 (KJV)
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
King Saul lost his crown because he was not willing to wait for Samuel and God's instructions. God doesn't like leaders who puff out their chest and say it's by my own might that we come against our enemies. When this happened in scripture, Israel was defeated.
Israel begins nation-wide emergency exercises
IDF facilities around the country to hold emergency preparedness drills, civilians to practice fleeing to safe spaces during alarms.
Arutz Sheva Staff, 11/03/18 17:15 (3/11/18)
A large-scale military exercise to raise the level of preparedness for emergencies at all IDF command centers and bases, as well as among the civilian population, began Sunday morning.
The IDF said that the purpose of the General Staff exercise is to train the main commanders in a variety of emergency and war scenarios, and to deepen the readiness and operational dialogue between the various command centers.
The exercise is not part of the joint exercise of the IDF and the US Army, the Juniper Cobra 2018 exercise, which is currently underway. During the week, exercises will be held in several locations around the country.
The goal of the home front exercise is to improve the preparedness of all the bodies in Israel from the national level to the level of the individual citizen for emergencies.
As in previous years, emphasis is being placed on training the Home Front Command forces in cooperation with the National Emergency Authority, the local authorities, the security and rescue organizations, the education system, and public and private organizations.
An IDF spokesman stressed that the exercise was planned far in advance as part of the training program for 2018.
Sirens will sound across the country on Tuesday, at 11:05 AM and 7:05 PM, as part of the emergency preparedness drills. No warnings will be sent to the personal devices of residents near the Gaza border during the 7:05 drill. However the national warning platforms and radio alerts will be activated.
The sirens will serve to train civilians to quickly reach a previously designated safe space in the event of an emergency, such as a missile attack, as well as to check the state of the warning system ad the sirens.
As part of the exercise, educational institutions and kindergartens will also practice bringing students to a safe location during an attack. In addition, government offices and public institutions will also train employees to evacuate to safe locations during the drills.
