Wars

North Korea

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.

North Korea has become a great threat in recent years, constantly ignoring world sanctions and UN resolutions to develop a serious nuclear capability, which now includes interconeinental ballistic missiles that can reach the United States. They have even tested a massive hydrogen bomb. They are, of course, not mentioned by name in Bible prophecy, but they do figure prominently in the build-up of Iran's nuclear ambitions, exchanging information with them about missiles and weapons. Iran is a key player in the major future war of "Gog and Magog" predicted in Ezekiel 38 and 39.

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.
