“Testing” the Waters

If you have not heard, Russia had naval exercises last month and will have more, this month, in the east Mediterranean.         With these drills consisting of forty exercises, it sounds a lot like a plan for future action rather than a random test (do a search for “Russian navy to conduct drills near Israel”).

If YHWH is with the state of Israel, then these plans should not put any fear into the nation. YHWH mentioned this at least four times, by his word, for emphasis:

Ezekiel:34-28 (WEB)

28 They will no more be a prey to the nations, neither will the animals of the earth devour them; but they will dwell securely, and no one will make them afraid.

Job 11:18-19

18 You shall be secure, because there is hope. Yes, you shall search, and shall take your rest in safety. 19 Also you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid. Yes, many shall court your favor.
Zephaniah 3:13
13 The remnant of Israel will not do iniquity, nor speak lies, neither will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth, for they will feed and lie down, and no one will make them afraid.
Micah 4:4
But they will sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree;
and no one will make them afraid: For the mouth of YHWH of Armies has spoken.
In contrast, when Israel isn’t keeping the laws and commandments:
Deuteronomy 28:66
66 Your life will hang in doubt before you. You will be afraid night and day, and will have no assurance of your life.
Only time can unfold what YHWH knows and has sent forth to happen.
This post is a continuation of “Right Claw on Egypt“.
