I have worked on the following
post off and on for about three years. It has only been within the last few weeks that everything has come together. I
have finally felt the freedom to move forward and publish it. Praise the LORD JESUS CHRIST! -DE (December 9, 2011)
The Curious Capture of Gilad Shalit - June 25,
is an Israeli Defense Force solider who came into the public conscience shortly after he was abducted on June 25, 2006, during
a cross-border raid initiated by Hamas militants near the Kerem Shalom crossing in Israel. Little did anyone know at the time
of this young 19-year-old Israeli soldier's abduction just how easily identifiable he would ultimately become around the world.
In all the research I have done, I have yet
to find anyone who felt at the time of Shalit's capture that his hostage status or date of abduction would eventually generate
a certain capacity of prophetic influence, much less to imply his capture and eventual release, which was doubted by most,
would in the end possess any significant value with regard to Biblical prophecy. From what I have seen and read, it appears
that for most, any level of observable prophetic worth associated with Gilad Shalit's trial of captivity surfaced
quickly after his surprising release and subsequent freedom.
Let no man diminish the testing of this young man, Gilad Shalit, for his test subtly shouts consequence, of
this I am sure. The following events I have felt compelled to list, all of which appear to be soundly connected to the curious
capture, ensuing test of captivity, and jubilant release of Gilad Shalit.
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than
of gold that
perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto
honourand glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7
