I would suggest that your pastor re-read his history and stop trying to make a religious event out of Military History. The event he is talking about is the Charge by 4th and 12th Light Horse Regiments at Beersheba on 31.10.1917. It is my opinion that he is to be taking history out of context. The casulties of the charge were light, the numbers involved in the battle very large and the charge, while it finished the battle, was only a very small part of it. There is a book floating around which contends that the Light Horse were on a crudsade to free the Holy Land so that Christ could return. Biblical study would have difficulty supporting this contention and the study of history would certainly not be very supportive.
