Wars

CyberWar

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

The dawn of the Computer Age brought with it the potential danger of sabotage by hackers, experts in the inner workings of computers, who take control of the system to steal information or to even cause damage. The mysterious Stuxnet Worm was able to target Iran's Uranium enrichment facilities, and other cyber attacks have taken control of water control plants in the United States.

Government agencies like the Pentagon have been invaded by these unknown experts, and major businesses have had their sensitive information stolen. The potential is great for severe terrorist attacks against financial institutions, utilities, or even military operations. CyberTerrorism has therefore become one of the fulfillments of Jesus' prediction that there would be "wars and rumors of wars" in the end times.
