By Moody Adams “South Korean and U.S. troops facing North Korea boosted their alert level Thursday to the highest category since 2006, after the communist regime threatened military strikes on allied troops in escalating tensions over its nuclear test. North Korea threatened Wednesday to attack any U.S. and South Korean ships that try to intercept its vessels and renounced a 1953 truce halting the Korean War fighting, raising the prospect of a naval clash off the Korean peninsula's west coast,” reports the Associated Press.
The concerns are the 28,500 troops in South Korea, who guard against attacks by North Korea, an attack on Japan or South Korea, and worst of all, sales of nuclear weapons to Middle East terrorists.
Nuclear development and proliferation appear to fulfill Bible prophecy and be the means by which men will destroy the earth at the end of time: “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Rev. 11:18).
Space center worker had me read this—said it was the best description on an ICBM reentering earth’s atmosphere. “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” (Rev. 8:10-11).
“Trees the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up” Rev. 8:7
Mountains will burn: "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" (Rev. 8:8).
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” (Rev. 8:9).
Water poisoned. “And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” Rev. 8:11
And the fourth angel sounded, and 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. Rev. 8:12
And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; “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” (Zech. 14:12). A nuclear blast, which can generate 150 million degrees Fahrenheit in one-millionth of a second, will make the flesh, tongue and eyes dissolve before the corpse hits the ground.
Jesus Christ told us these things would come to pass before His triumphant return: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass” (Matthew 24:6).
