Luke 19:43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.
Editor's Note: Jim Bakker teaches to watch Israel closely because it is the prophetic timeclock for the unfolding of Last Days events. In Matthew 24, Israel is the fig tree that the Lord told His people to observe to understand the times. It is like a barometer of what is happening in the nations.
The Israel Defense Force has a new weapon in the battle against missiles.
The system uses lasers to blow up short range rockets and mortars according to a defense industry official. The system is designed to deal with targets with a trajectory too small to be engaged by the Iron Dome system.
Rafael Advanced Defense Systems said that Iron Beam’s laser will super-heat warheads of shells in a range of 4.5 miles from the laser’s base.
The laser system is called the “fifth layer” of missile defense for the country. The Iron Dome is being backed up with the Arrow II and Arrow III rocket interceptors along with another rocket interceptor named David’s Sling. The Arrow III and David’s Sling are still being tested by the military.
The United States has extensively underwritten the cost of the systems.
