Israel & Hamas

In light of today’s attack on Israel by Hamas, I made an interesting discovery about a trip to Israel and Auschwitz that God inspired in early 2021. I was due to visit Auschwitz on October 25, 2023 (10 Cheshvan – the day God told Noah to enter the Ark according to Jewish tradition), exactly 7 weeks to the day after leaving Jerusalem on September 6, 2023:

“It wasn’t until October 7, 2023 – nearly three years after this trip was inspired, that I made an interesting discovery. The day I was led to visit Auschwitz on, marked the 50th anniversary of the end of the Yom Kippur War on October 25, 1973. The only reason I discovered this was because on October 7, 2023, Hamas launched an unprovoked attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip – one day after the 50th anniversary of the start of the Yom Kippur War on October 6, 1973.

October 7 happened to be Shemini Atzeret (22 Tishrei, 5784) – the Eighth Day of Assembly in the Hebrew calendar – following the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles. Thus, this trip was now marked by three significant conflicts for the Jewish people:

1.     My visit to Jerusalem inspired on Shushan Purim – celebrating the victory over Haman;

2.     My arrival in Jerusalem on the 84th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two in the Hebrew calendar;

3.     My visit to Auschwitz on the 50th anniversary of the end of the Yom Kippur War in 1973.

And now, potentially, another significant conflict may be brewing between Israel and Hamas.”
