The Final Nuclear War & the End-time Timetable
The Final “Nuclear War”* and the main End-time Events yet to come, according to the Bible.
Ever since I was a kid, there has always been the spectre of a possible nuclear war, hanging over the heads of the whole world. In 1963, we had the Cuba missile crisis, during the presidency of John F Kennedy of the USA and Nikita Khrushchev of Russia.
In 1967 we had the 6-day Arab-Israeli war in the Middle East, which could have easily exploded into something much bigger. In 1973 we had the OIL embargo seemingly created by the oil-rich Arab nations, and as a direct result, an oil price crisis for the West.
In 1973 the world almost collapsed, due to a severe economic downturn.
In 1987 we had another serious economic downturn.
We have had major financial crashes every decade since. Last of all, was 2008, and since then the world has not really recovered, but seems to be constantly hovering on the brink of a seemingly imminent total financial collapse of the dollar.
(During July 2015 GREECE could have been the card that brought down the EU deck of cards! Now in July 2016 could it be the BREXIT REBELLION against the ESTABLISHED ORDER, & subsequent elections in the USA going against the Elite in the form of Donald Trump, this coming November presidential elections, that could trigger a collapse of the whole financial deck of cards, and thus bring on the NEW WORLD ORDER by stealth?- by S. N. Strutt)
We all know that the whole world is inter-dependent on the dollar, as its reserve currency, & that if the dollar collapses, then like dominoes all of the currencies will go down.
During Sept 2013, we almost had a major confrontation between Russia and America and its allies, over Syria and Iran.
Now the above is what we have observed on the surface, but digging deeper we find the big Bankster Elite in the form of the Illuminati and their many sub-companies, have ruled for centuries & are deliberately undermining the whole world’s financial system.
Firstly they gained control over just a few countries, but especially during the past century over many countries. Of course they have been working mostly behind the scenes of the biggest governments of the world.
Let’s look at the facts: – around 300 families control around 2/3 of the world’s real wealth.
They control America, Russia, China, Europe etc.
Where do they not have influence and control? If these facts are true, then why have we had literally thousands of conflicts between the nations, which have killed hundreds of millions of people, in the past century alone?
If there is so much money around why wars? The world’s finances are controlled and dictated by the Elite, who are not loyal to any nation, but only to their own agenda. The Elite, most obviously, are the ones who have often deliberately set-up the conditions, to bring the nations to their knees in fear and thus create big wars.
This helps them to get rid of “the over-population” problem or as Hitler was encouraged to do with the Jews, in some nasty form of eugenics. Tragically millions have died because of these very wicked merchants, as the bible so accurately describes them to their hideous, diabolical shame. (Revelations 6.5-6, Revelations 18.23, Hosea 12.7 “He is a Merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand and he loves to oppress”.)
The Illuminati’s big dream is to create a One World Government, in order to achieve world domination, and eventually with the help of their charismatic leader, the infamous long-awaited Anti-Christ, enslave every human-being on earth with the famous Mark of the Beast implant!
In spite of the fact that since the 2nd world war, there have been countless dangers of possible nuclear war, total economic collapses on a world scale, not to mention all of the other horrors that are currently happening on this planet in order to deliberately make the world’s population infertile, poison the masses through such things as constant chemtrails, fluoride, chloride in the water. Sicknesses forced on the peoples of the earth through enforced inoculations and vaccines containing mercury and other dangerous substances.
They often scare the masses with the threat of this disease or that plague .We also have the GMO’s, and the deadly effect, that they are having as part of Agenda 21 of Eugenics, orchestrated by the UN.
From reading many alternative media sites in the USA, there appear to be many, who think that Obama, has sold America down the drain to the communists. They state, that there are, hundreds of thousands of UN troops including tens of thousands of Russian troops already inside America, and even more Chinese. No one seems to know what they are doing there? The official explanation is that they are doing joint exercises with the American soldiers. Well, not exactly, in fact the Russians are doing military exercises with FEMA, which is apparently the private army of Obama, so it is claimed.
This is just the tip of the ice-berg of some of the world’s horrendous on-going problems. I’m sure you can think of hundreds of others.
The point I want to make is that there is so much propaganda on film and audio as well as in written form, by the Media and Alternative media about man destroying himself one way or the other. What is one supposed to make of all of this often opposing information?
As a Christian, I want to point out, that there are some very good prophecies in the bible which tend to indicate that the world is not going to end quite yet. . On the one hand, very often, the Alternative media are right, about many nefarious, deceptive, and downright evil deceptions being orchestrated by the Elite etc. It is true that the Main Media are frequently merely the stooges of the Elite, and printing what the Elite want the masses to know.
It is amazing to me how that most of the time, the Main Media misses most of the really important news,(deliberately), while they babble on about some completely insignificant so-called news, which is not really news, but more like ancient history a lot of the time, or some vain, insignificant matter. They are simply ordered not to print anything that would shed a bad light on the ruling powers themselves, (who probably own their newspaper or TV station), as well as the proxy governments they support.
So we have two extremes, where the main media is mostly putting everyone to sleep with their favourite TV program, or the latest fashion and superficial news, entertainment etc. On the other hand you have the alternative media, which seem to “get too excited” and often “jump to conclusions”about world events. They often predict that something “dire is about to happen” from a possible nuclear war last Sept with the Syrian crisis, to telling us in a popular WW III documentary, that very soon Obama will lead us into a nuclear war! God help all of us!
Many writers, even on the fringe of the accepted churches, write about the horrors, which will soon come on the earth according to different scriptures in the bible.
This is where we can generally agree. Matthew 24, Joel 2, Isaiah 24, etc talk about terrible things happening in the very last days of man’s rule on earth, including nuclear war (Zechariah 14.12 Revelations 18.2,8 )
God Himself calls the great commercial systems of man “Babylon the Great Whore”, with the Mother of harlots most likely being the United states of America, as the giant leader of Capitalism.
The American protestant churches however, like to point the finger at the Pope, and claim, that he must be the coming anti-Christ or false prophet.
If we look at history, we find that the protestant churches, for hundreds of years have been claiming that the next pope is the leader of Babylon the Great, and might be the anti-Christ? They point out that it must be Rome, as Rome sits on 7 hills. There are 7 mountains mentioned in (Revelations 17.9).
These religionists, in speaking against the Catholics, are like the black cauldron calling the pot black!
My personal conviction however, is that the USA is the most guilty nation on earth, when it comes to absolute hypocrisy. On their own currency, the dollar it states: “In God we trust”. Really? I think the god of America, is in fact materialism! I do think many nations are absolutely fed-up with all of America’s empire building, all around the world, at the expense of the poor.
According to many different verses in the bible, there will eventually come a nuclear war, but it cannot come quite yet, and I will explain why.
Here is a Bible Class on future end-time events, which according to the bible have yet to transpire, before man’s reign on earth is over, at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ at the battle of Armageddon. (Revelations 19.19)
At some point, possibly toward the end of the Great Tribulation or even after theRapture , 10 “kings” will join forces with the Antichrist and together they will destroy with fire “Babylon, the Great Whore” in a final judgment.
From a number of Scriptures, this sounds like 10 of the leading nations of Europe (or perhaps “10 kings” refers to the European Community as a whole) will unite with Russia and turn on the United States in a nuclear first strike that will destroy her in “one hour” (Revelation 17:12-13,16-17; 18:2,7-8).
How and when all of this will play out is still unclear, but as the time draws nearer, we will see exactly how these verses will be fulfilled.
With all of the above in mind, it is an absolute miracle of God, as far as I am concerned, that the whole world has not already been blown sky-high.
It is my conviction that in spite of the great evil of a small number of individuals, and their puppet regimes, not to mention the much more sinister devilish spiritual powers behind them, who some call “aliens” but are in fact devils from the spirit world, and thus multi-dimensional beings.
I am convinced that so far the angels of God have prevented a lot of things from going wrong, & that is for certain in answer to the prayers of millions of people from many walks of life. The Devil (Lucifer) thinks he is winning, and is determined to destroy mankind; when in the bigger scheme of things he is losing big time! Satan is always boasting through his people about all of the terrible things that he can do and will do to mankind. However he is not able to perform most of them, most of the time. (Philippians 1.28 “In nothing be terrified by your adversaries.”)
It is very important to understand the correct order of events as foretold by the bible prophets, and not go berserk over each new piece of scary or very negative information, but to balance scripture with scripture.
There are two main dangers today: 1) Falling asleep, lulled to be oblivious to the real dangerous and precarious situation of this planet and the real needs of others 2) On the other side of the coin, believing every scary end of the world scenario that comes along, without really knowing the Bible and the scriptures.
God’s Word is the ultimate authority, when it comes to future events, & when they will happen. Most of the time God seems to keep the exact dates of future happenings mostly a secret until right before the events happen! (Amos 3.7 “Surely the Lord God will do nothing accept He reveal His secrets unto his servants the prophets”.)
Here are some the mains point which yet have to happen, before the end of the world all and the 2ndComing of Jesus Christ.
An Overview of End-time Bible Prophecy
RADIO & VIDEO LINKS:- (120. NIGHTLIGHT (The Antichrist Shall Come)
The Bible not only tells us about yesterday, it also tells us about tomorrow. It is full of thousands of detailed prophecies that describe specific people, places, times, situations, and events. Many of these prophecies are about the final period of man’s kingdoms on earth, a period known as the End time–the time in which we are now living.
1. Signs of the times
The Bible gives us numerous “signs of the times,” signs and signals that we are to watch for so we can know exactly how close we are to Jesus’ return. These signs include drastic upsurges in the number and severity of wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes (Matthew 24:7); the Gospel being preached in all the world (Matthew 24:14); dramatic increases in international travel and scientific knowledge (Daniel 12:4); a great “falling away” from the true God as “evil men and seducers grow worse and worse” and deceive many (2 Thessalonians 2:3; 2 Timothy 3:13 KJV); unprecedented selfishness and lack of natural affection (Matthew 24:12; 2 Timothy 3:1-4). All this results in “distress of nations,” with “men’s hearts failing them from fear” (Luke 21:25-26)–signs that are all obviously being fulfilled today more than ever before.
2. Rise of the Antichrist
One of the most important signs of the End-time is the rise of a totally godless anti-Christ world government led by a demonic dictator who will actually be fully possessed by Satan himself, the world leader known as the Antichrist. In desperation, the world will turn to this political superman, hoping that he will be able to solve pressing problems, cure economic ills, unite international politics, end religious squabbles, and defuse the nuclear time bomb (Daniel 8:23-25; 11:21,24; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
3. Signing of the Covenant
The Antichrist will sign a seven-year covenant, or agreement, by which he will bring a measure of world peace by reconciling the world’s major religions (Daniel 9:27a). Through this covenant he will also somehow settle the current crisis in the Middle East by working out a compromise between the Arabs and the Jews, enabling the Jews to rebuild their Temple and resume their religious animal sacrifices (Daniel 8:11; 9:27; Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:4).
During the first half of the Antichrist’s seven-year reign, people are going to think that he is wonderful because he will have brought some peace, restored the world’s economy, redistributed the wealth, helped the poor, solved the Middle East crisis, and promised religious liberty (Daniel 11:21-24,39).
4. Breaking of the Covenant
But suddenly, halfway through his seven-year reign, the Antichrist will break the covenant (Daniel 9:27b), invade Israel from the north (Daniel 11:28-31), abolish all traditional religious worship (Revelation 13:7-8), declare that he himself is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4), and demand that all the world worship him and his “image,” which could be some kind of computerized robot.
The false prophet–the Antichrist’s chief aide, who deceives the world–will make this image to the Antichrist (Revelation 13:11-14) and place it at the site of the rebuilt Jewish Temple (Daniel 11:31). This image, which the prophet Daniel referred to as the “abomination of desolation,” will “speak” and somehow have power to cause those who refuse to worship it to be killed (Revelation 13:14-15). Jesus said that when we see this abomination of desolation standing at the Temple, we will know that the last three and a half years of man’s rule on earth has begun–a time of “great tribulation” (Matthew 24:15,21).
5. The Great Tribulation
During this final three-and-a-half-year period, the Antichrist will enact a mandatory one-world credit system, creating a cashless society. The Antichrist government will use this new credit system to try to force everybody to submit to and worship the Antichrist, because no one will be able to buy or sell without a personal credit number, the “mark of the Beast,” in their hands or foreheads,(computer chip implant) (Revelation 13:16-18). But God’s children and many others will refuse to worship the Antichrist or receive his mark, and the Lord will take care of them (Revelation 12:6, 14).
While the Antichrist and his followers are persecuting and trying to kill their enemies, God is going to let loose pestilences and plagues, some released from the Bottomless Pit, that will attack the followers of the Antichrist (Revelation chapter 8; 9:1-11; 11:3-6). The Tribulation will be like the last days of the children of Israel in Egypt, before Moses led them out. God’s prophets will do mighty signs, wonders, and miracles to defend the Gospel and God’s children, while God sends plague after plague on their enemies (Revelation 11:3, 5-6).
A number of wars and the Antichrist’s worldwide persecution of all who refuse to worship him will make the Tribulation a time of trouble “such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21). But the Bible also tells us in several places and in several corroborating ways exactly how long the Tribulation will last–three and a half years, or 42 months, or 1,260 days from when the Antichrist sets up his image at the Temple. God revealed this to encourage us to hang on and keep going for Jesus during what will be a very difficult period for Christians (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13:5; 12:6, 14; 11:3).
During this time, “the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. And those of the people who understand shall instruct many” (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13:5; 12:6, 14; 11:3).
The people of the world are going to be more desperate for the truth than ever, and those who know God’s Word and are faithful witnesses for the Lord are going to teach and encourage millions. In spite of all that the Devil’s forces will do to try to stop them, millions of God’s children will keep going for God till the very end.
6. Nuclear war
At some point, possibly toward the end of the Great Tribulation or even after the Rapture (point 7), 10 “kings” will join forces with the Antichrist and together they will destroy with fire “Babylon, the great whore” in a final judgment. From a number of Scriptures, this sounds like 10 of the leading nations of Europe (or perhaps “10 kings” refers to the European Community as a whole) will unite with Russia and turn on the United States in a nuclear first strike that will destroy her in “one hour” (Revelation 17:12-13,16-17; 18:2,7-8). How and when all of this will play out is still unclear, but as the time draws nearer, we will see exactly how these verses will be fulfilled.
7. The Rapture
At the end of the final three and a half years, “immediately after the tribulation of those days”–just when the Antichrist thinks he has the world in his grasp, Jesus will return to rescue all of His children out of this world. The Antichrist’s forces will be shocked as they, too, see the Lord coming in the clouds of Heaven with power and great glory (Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 1:7).
When Jesus returns, all of God’s saved children will be gloriously resurrected in what is known as the Rapture. The apostle Paul writes: “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed; in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). The graves of all the Christians who have already died will burst open and they will receive new supernatural bodies, like Jesus’ body after He was resurrected. “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
8. Marriage Supper
In the Rapture, Jesus has come back to catch His bride, His Church, out of the evil clutches of the Antichrist and to whisk her away to unite with Him and each other in the grandest, most glorious and thrilling wedding party that’s ever been held, the great marriage supper of the Lamb in Heaven,where the Lord will reward all His faithful children with beautiful, eternal “crowns of life” (Revelation 19:7-9; 2:10).
9. Wrath of God
After the Lord rescues and raptures His children to be with Him, the horrific vials of the great “wrath of God” will be poured upon the Antichrist and his evil forces still remaining on earth–the most horrible plagues the world has ever known! God’s angels of judgment are going to give the Antichrist and his forces what they deserve (Revelation 11:18; 14:9-10; 16:1-11).
10. The Battle of Armageddon
On a plain in what is now northern Israel, the Antichrist will lead his armies in this major campaign against those who still oppose him. But Jesus and His army of saints–all of His born-again and now resurrected children from throughout the ages–will return to earth on majestic white horses to utterly defeat and destroy the Antichrist and his evil forces in the apocalyptic Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16; 19:11-21).
11. The Millennium
The earth will be restored to a perfect, Garden-of-Eden state (Isaiah 11:6-9; 14:7; 65:25; Hosea 2:18), and Jesus and His saints will set up the kingdom of Heaven on earth (Daniel 2:44; 7:18, 22, 27; Revelation 5:10). The Devil will be bound and cast as a prisoner into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3), and the world’s unsaved inhabitants–those who survived the Battle of Armageddon–will be forced to do what’s right. Then and only then, under the righteous rule of Jesus and the saints, will all wars cease. The world will at last be governed fairly and well with true justice, liberty, peace, plenty, and happiness for all (Isaiah 2:4; Revelation 2:26; 20:4-6). This thousand-year period is known as the “Millennium.”
During the Millennium, the resurrected saints will have new supernatural bodies with amazing powers like Jesus had after His resurrection (Philippians 3:20-21; Luke 20:36)–invincibility; complete freedom from pain, sickness, and death; abilities such as being able to fly, appear and disappear, change their appearance, read minds, communicate with each other telepathically, and stop wrongdoers with as little as a thought or a glance (1 John 3:2; John 20:19,26; Luke 24:31; Acts 10:40-41).
Those on earth will still be in natural bodies, like the ones we have now, and will have none of the saints’ supernatural powers, so they will be fairly easy to rule over with the love, wisdom, and power of Jesus and His personal leadership. Because everyone will see God’s glorious power and kingdom, there won’t be any unbelievers in the Millennium (Hebrews 8:11; Habakkuk 2:14). But sad to say, there will still be some unreceivers–those who won’t yield or obey, but rather choose to stubbornly and defiantly rebel when they get the chance, at the end of the Millennium (Isaiah 26:10).
12. The Battle of Gog and Magog
At the end of the Millennium, Satan will be released for a “little season” from the bottomless pit where he has been imprisoned–just long enough for him to deceive those unconverted rebels who will again follow Satan to the full, in open rebellion against the Lord and His government.
This rebellion will result in the catastrophic Battle of Gog and Magog, in which God will send down fire to devour them completely. In fact, it is such a horrible fire that it will completely burn up the surface of the planet, and the atmospheric heavens will roll back like a scroll and depart with a great noise (Revelation 6:14; 2 Peter 3:10). The entire surface of the planet will then be recreated into a beautiful new Earth with no more seas (though there will likely still be bodies of water), no more pollution, and no more Devil, for he will have been cast into “the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:7-10; 21:1).
13. The Great White Throne Judgment
After the climactic Battle of Gog and Magog, the unsaved of all ages will be resurrected for the final Great White Throne judgment, where “the books are opened” and they will be given their final sentences according to their works and assigned to their places in the hereafter (Revelation 20:11-13). The worst and most cruel and wicked will be sent to Hell or Purgatory for punishment and purging, while those who tried to be good but were unsaved because they had not heard the Gospel, whose names will be found in the Book of Life, will be given a chance to receive Jesus and enjoy the marvellous new Earth (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4; 1 Peter 3:18-19).
14. The New Heaven and New Earth
God’s great heavenly city will then descend from above to the beautiful, re-created planet Earth, and God Himself will dwell with us, right here on earth (Revelation 21:1-3). The heavenly city will measure nearly 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometres) long, 1,500 miles wide, and 1,500 miles high (Revelation 21:16).
The entire city is made of pure gold, like clear glass (Revelation 21:18), and through those transparent walls we will be able to see out onto a beautiful, fully restored and re-created earth, which will be populated by new nations who will truly have learned the righteousness, goodness, and love of God. And eventually, because of God’s mercy and justice, all punishment on earth and under the earth will end. Almost everyone who has ever lived will finally be reconciled to God and live either with the elect within the heavenly city or else outside the city. “For God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). “Who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow … and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11).
