Wars

Wars and Rumors of War

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:
According to Matthew 24:6, "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come."

Wars have always been an unfortunate part of human history, but in the End-Times, Jesus said they would get worse. In his Olivet Discourse he identified four phases of the future: "The Beginning of Birth Pains," "The Tribulation," "The Great Tribulation," and "After the Tribulation."


We are apparently living in the first phase, "The Beginning of Birth Pains." Jesus said there would be certain signs accompanying this period of time. One of them is "wars and rumors of war." During the past century we have had two world wars, the use of nuclear weapons, the cold war, terrorism, and cyberwarfare.

There will be other wars in the future, including the war of the Second Seal (Revelation 6:3-4), the Beast's campaign to rule the world ( Revelation 13:5-8), the Battle of Armageddon( Revelation 19:11-21), and Satan's Last Stand ( Revelation 20:7-10) after the Thousand Year Reign of Christ.

The US appears to be quietly preparing for nuclear war with North Korea

Jan. 20, 2018 - Tensions in Korea are lowered approaching the Winter Olympics, but observers say that both the U.S. and North Korea have made some alarming steps that could lead to nuclear war.

For only the second time ever. the US has positioned both its nuclear-capable bombers in its territory of Guam.

In addition to the usual forward-deployed USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier in Japan, the USS Carl Vinson has also headed to the Pacific, while the smaller carriers USS Wasp and USS Bonhomme Richard also patrol the waters.
