Rabbi Yigal Cohen related a story of a miracle that happened during the current war that soon spread. According to the rabbi, a group of soldiers in Gaza had a break in their fighting, and some of the soldiers took the opportunity to sit and have a meal together while others were chatting. Some of the soldiers were cleaning their weapons, a routine and necessary task that requires constant attention.
Soldiers are trained to treat any weapon as if it is loaded and should never be pointed at something they do not want to shoot. Before cleaning, a rifle must be checked which requires removing the magazine, cocking it twice, and pulling the trigger while pointing the weapon away from any people. This should eject any bullet that was in the chamber and if in the unlikely chance a bullet is still in the chamber, it should fire, leaving the weapon empty.
In this case, one soldier checked his weapon. He removed the magazine and cocked it twice. No bullet ejected. In theory, there should not have been any bullets in the chamber. But adhering to the safety routine, he pointed the weapon towards an empty field and pulled the trigger.To his surprise, the gun fired. The soldiers were unaware that a pair of terrorists had just exited a tunnel in the adjacent field. One terrorist was aiming a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) at the group of resting soldiers. The stray bullet hit RPG, causing it to explode and neutralizing both terrorists.
The rabbi also presented a video of an IDF Seren (captain) relating yet another story from the battlefield. The Seren told of a group of soldiers traveling through the battlefield in Gaza in an armored personnel carrier (APC). The Major in the APC told his driver to advance. For some inexplicable reason, the driver put the APC into reverse and drove backwards. The officer repeated his order to drive forward and advance.
The captain relating the story noted that it was bizarre for a soldier to ignore a direct order from a Major.
"Why would he do the exact opposite?” he asked.
Suddenly, the soldiers in the jeep felt a bump and heard a grinding noise. The jeep had just run over a terrorist who, unbeknownst to them, had succeeded in sneaking up on the jeep and was about to attach an explosive device to the metal body.
"This is a tactic used by the terrorists and can, unfortunately, be successful,” the captain noted. "But in this case, there was no longer a terrorist or an explosive so the IDF soldiers were safe. You might think that the driver saw the terrorist but in these APCs, the driver can only see forward, and even that, not very well. So why did he go backwards?”
At this, the captain pointed up to heaven and nodded."The driver had a navigator guiding him from above,” the captain said.
The terrorists will not prevail no matter how hard they try or how much they appeal to Allah.
Things are unfolding according to the Divine plan.

I would add that Isaac Newton, pretty much the father of physics, was also an Episcopal priest and a devout man who spent his life trying to decipher the timeline of the tribulation. He determined it would happen in 2066. So just forty years by his reconing, which is based on the Bible and calculatons he made using historical baselines.
Who knows, but the signs certainly all seem to be present. We seem on a terrible precipice that could wipe us out. It seems we just need a lit match tossed into the mix.
