ARC Mini Blog for Day 270 Swords of Iron – Lessons Learned

Chaim starts out the video by mentioning that he’s standing in front of an olive tree and then giving some examples of what the Olive Tree represents in various Biblical passages.

He says that the olive branch was a symbol of peace from the story of Noah and the Ark in Genesis chapters 6-8. The olive tree is also a symbol of the grafting of God’s people together in the same Covenant relationship with Him, as explained in Romans 11:16-18; For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

Chaim then begins to talk about how Israel is making preparations for a war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, bringing large supplies that will be necessary for such a conflict into the Galilee region.

He says that Israel doesn’t want this war, but it’s not afraid to fight if it has to.

In this context he quotes Jeremiah 1:8; Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.

He also says that, just like for trees, there are seasons in the life of a nation, and in this context he quotes Ecclesiastes 3:7; A time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

Also, he continues with Jeremiah 1:9-10; Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.”

He says that when he thinks of uprooting evil, he thinks about the tunnels that he and his comrades in the Ya’alom combat engineering unit have found and demolished.

He also quotes Genesis 12:7; Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

He says that in other passages God makes it very clear that His plans and purposes for the world are centered on the fulfillment of this promise, and Chaim says that Hezbollah and Iran and all the other enemies of Israel better get that through their heads. They are not fighting against Israel, they are fighting against God, and they have no hope of winning.

He concludes by thanking his viewers for standing with Israel in prayer.
