The nuclear accident in Japan and the spreading radiation has gripped the attention of the world and well it should. The Bible says man will destroy the world and then God will “destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18). The Scripture indicates the world will be destroyed by nuclear radiation. There are seven passages describing things radiation has proven to do:
1. “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:10-11). A space center scientist told me this is the best description you could give of a nuclear ICBM coming down to earth and its destruction. 2. The third part of trees and all green grass will burn up. “The third part of trees was burnt up , and all green grass was burnt up” (Revelation 8:7). 3. A mountain burns: And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood” (Revelation. 8:8). 4. Fish and ships will be destroyed: “And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed” (Revelation 8:9). 5. Water poisoned: “And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” (Revelation 8:11). 6. The third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise” (Revelation 8:12) 7. Flesh and eyes melt: “Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth” (Zechariah 14:12).
A nuclear blast, which can generate 150 million degrees Fahrenheit in one-millionth of a second. The tongue and eyes can dissolve in their sockets, before your corpse hits the ground. This happened in the nuclear attacks on Japan during World War II.
