Mike Huckabee last Saturday at The FAMiLY Leadership Summit told a story of what was deemed a miracle by members of the Israeli Defense Forces.  The Daily Mail (UK) reports:

The commander recalled: ‘A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory].

‘We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.

‘We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock.

The defence system has been highly effective in the current round of violence between Israel and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip – Israeli officials say it has a success rate as high as 90 percent.

The commander explains that with ‘just four seconds’ until the missile landed the military warned emergency services to be on standby.

‘Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!,’ he said.

‘I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.’

Yes God does exist and He still is in the miracle business.

  1. Loved the article but confused by the date. You have the article dated September 20, 2014. We’re still in August. So I don’t know if this occurred recently or over a year ago???
