From Pharaoh to Iran: Modern Passover of Israel

Have you ever wondered why, despite the relentless assaults of empires and enemies, the Jewish people stand unbowed and unbroken? The story of Passover, the Exodus from Egypt, isn't just a story from ancient scrolls; it mirrors the undying spirit of Israel today.

The Timeless Story of Exodus


At the heart of Passover is the Exodus story, a liberation that has inspired countless generations. The Israelites, enslaved by Pharaoh, cried out under the weight of oppression, and God heard their plea. "Surely, I have seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows," God declared (Exodus 3:7). This divine intervention led to a spectacular deliverance; a fantastic journey through the parted Red Sea and wilderness, with miracles happening left and right, toward a land flowing with milk and honey - the Promised Land.


Israel's Modern-Day Exodus


Fast forward thousands of years, and the names of oppressors have changed, but the story hasn't changed. Empire after empire has tried to crush the Jewish spirit—Babylonians, Romans, Nazis. Yet, like the pharaohs of old, these modern tyrants have disappeared into the annals of history, while Israel not only survives but thrives. The parallels between past and present are striking. Today, it’s not a pharaoh but rather regimes like Iran that seek to undermine Israel, using proxies like Hamas and Hezbollah in their quest to exert their evil influence and dominate the Middle East.

The Threat of the Iranian Regime


Make no mistake—when we talk about Iran and its proxies, we are talking about a calculated, sinister force that aims not just to control but to annihilate. The Iranian regime's leaders, much like the ancient pharaohs, envision themselves as gods of the modern age, dictating the fate of nations. But just as God heard the cries of the Israelites, so too does the global community witness the aggressions perpetrated by this modern-day Pharaoh. With the recent attack of 300+ ballistic missiles fired from Iran, Iraq, and Yemen toward Israel - the Jewish state intercepted 99% of them. And the world witnessed the true colors of this regime - yet again.


The Islamic regime wants the destruction of Israel more than anything, but I believe they will not start an official war. Why? Because the leaders in Tehran know all too well that they lack a crucial element—support from their own people.

The Iranian populace, especially the younger generations, show increasing signs of discontent with their leaders' policies, both domestic and foreign. The regime's obsession with Israel does not resonate with a population grappling with economic hardship and a thirst for greater freedoms.



In 2020, as the Iranian regime escalated its rhetoric against Israel, a massive locust plague devastated vast swathes of their territory. Is this a mere coincidence, or is it something more prophetic?



After the Islamic regime attacked Israel this month, the country is now seeing severe flooding in Southeast Iran - it is tragic that people are suffering because of this cruel regime that cares not for them but for destroying the Jewish state.


Adding a curious twist to Iran's story is the phenomenon of the red beaches of Hormuz. These shores are naturally red due to iron oxide, strikingly similar to the biblical transformation of the Nile River into blood—a sign of impending freedom for the Israelites. While the red waters of Hormuz are a natural occurrence and have always been that way, their resemblance to Iran's Supreme leader, who acts like a modern-day Pharaoh against Israel, is uncanny.

The Response of Resilience and Strength


Yet, what is the response of Israel? It is one of unyielding strength and resilience. The Israel Defense Forces stand vigilant, a modern embodiment of Joshua and Caleb, not just defending borders but ensuring that the nation can sleep a little sounder at night. Israel's intelligence community works tirelessly to thwart plans conceived in the dark corridors of Tehran and its allies. Like the Israelites who crossed the Red Sea, today’s Israel knows that survival is not just about defending the present but securing the future.


The Promise of Tomorrow


As we remember the Exodus this Passover, let us also remember that this festival is not just a commemoration but a celebration of continuous freedom and survival. The story of Exodus teaches us that no matter how mighty the oppressor, they can be overcome. It reminds us that freedom is a right worth fighting for, and it is never handed down by tyrants—it must be seized by the hands of the brave.


This Passover, let us draw strength from our past and courage for our future. Let's honor those who crossed the desert towards freedom and those who today ensure that the children of Israel will never again live under the shadow of a Pharaoh. The tyrants of today should take heed—like their predecessors; they will find their ambitions thwarted, their legacies lost to the sands of time.

Israel, born from the cries of the oppressed, continues to stand tall. It's a beacon of hope and a testament to the indomitable spirit of its people. The Pharaohs are long gone, but the nation they sought to destroy dances on their graves, free and unbroken. As we retell the story of Exodus in this Passover, let's remember: we are no longer slaves, we are free people, and we will accept nothing less.

The Christians who read the Bible are always on the side of Israel.

If we look deeply in the history, we can see this hate of the other nations against Israel, the same hate of the Evil against The Lord.

From Verona, Italy, with love and prayers

For humanity, and especially for us Christians, there is no more important topic in today's time than what is happening to Israel. It is impossible to be a Christian and not support Israel and the Jewish people in their just struggle for survival. Much support, love and prayers from me and my family for the people of Israel.

Greetings from a Croatian war veteran from Croatia. Vilim K.
