Is Nuclear War Avoidable?
Where are we headed? Can we stop or even delay the global agenda? If we take out Iran's nuclear facilities, will that prevent nuclear war? Does the Bible have anything to say about nuclear war? If it does, would you believe it? If you believe it, do you believe it will be a long time in the future? Anyone who thinks there's a chance of winning against the global agenda is sadly mistaken. Yes, the Bible does have something to say about it. It predicts a time of nuclear holocaust. Look into Mathew, the 24th chapter vs 21-22, in which Jesus is speaking about the time of the end. He said there would be a time of tribulation greater than anything the world has ever experienced to that time, or will thereafter. Tribulation greater than anything the world has ever experienced? Worse than the flood of Noah? Worse than the Holocaust? He gave another clue. He said that if those days weren't shortened, no flesh would survive. (Mathew 24:21-22) No flesh would survive? What could possibly be so horrendous that it has the ability to destroy all life on earth? Well, it could be a world-wide plague. Or an asteroid hitting the earth. So why think it's a nuclear holocaust? Because there are other passages that speak of it and give more information. Yes, there WILL be a nuclear war: "Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths." Zechariah 14:12 Their flesh will melt off their bodies while they're standing on their feet? Their eyes will dissolve in their sockets? This isn't a plague of sickness. This is something that happens suddenly. Something that takes them by surprise while they're standing on their feet. This is an accurate description of nuclear war. Survivors will say afterwards, "why didn't we get it when the entire generation watched the 'nuclear arms race'? Did they think nuclear armaments were just for assuring the enemy wouldn't attack because it would mean mutual destruction? Why didn't we get it when the buildup of armaments was reported in our newspapers and on our tv's continuously throughout our generation? We got so used to hearing it that we became desensitized to it. There's another clue, given by the prophet Ezekiel. He is speaking of the time AFTER this nuclear war and he describes the cleanup. People at that time will be told that when they find a bone or body part, they are not to touch it, they are to put a marker by it, and then professionals will come and dispose of it. Why? Think "radioactivity." “They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. The search party will pass through the land; and they see a man’s bone, he shall set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog.” Ezekiel 39:14-15 What else do we know about this conflagration to come? Well ...we know who the players are. Consider what the prophet Ezekiel tells us about them: According to Ezekiel, Iran and Russia are the leaders of a confederacy. What is true of Iran and Russia? Nuclear weapons. What is the world shouting at them about, even right now, in recent news? That their nuclear weapons development must be stopped. Will it be stopped? No. According to the Biblical prophecies, it is going to precipitate a time of tribulation greater than anything the world has ever known. As mentioned above, it's a time that will so pollute the earth, that afterwards it will take specialists just to go near bodies and body parts to collect the bones from which their flesh melted off as they stood on their feet and bury them. Is diplomacy, or threats, or punitive action against Iran or Russia going to succeed? No. Is there anything we can do to stop it? No. The Biblical prophecies WILL come to pass. And the scenario is right now set up exactly according to what was prophesied by the Bible's ancient prophets. When? Jesus said to watch for the generation that sees the return of the Jews to Israel, the "budding of the fig tree," the Biblical symbol of Israel, and that has happened in this generation. He said it would be a generation of wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines, and pestilence (disease) - all coming together at the same time, like birth pains. Is anything presently missing out of that list? No. It's all in front of us and on our tv screens daily. It's all there. It could begin tomorrow. Why am I telling you this? To scare you? If only! If only you were scared enough to realize that you might not have a future. If you knew that for certain, what do you think your reaction would be? Hopefully for many it will be the realization that our life here is short, it will soon be over one way or another, and there is nothing, NOTHING as important as finding out what God has said about your eternity, because that's where you're going to spend most of your existence. A few years here. Maybe 70 or 80? More or less ...possibly coming to an end shortly and suddenly. Eternity is a very long time to risk spending it in misery. Do you think you're going to heaven? If so, on what basis do you think that? Hoping they grade on the curve? I assure you, the Word of God makes it very clear that they do NOT grade on the curve. If you're thinking you were more good than bad, so you're ok, you've been sadly deceived. "ALL we like sheep have gone astray..." "There is none righteous, no not one." But many, in fact most, are blind and deaf: "...seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear ...for the heart of this people has grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their heart..." Matthew 13:13-15 God provided a savior, ONE savior, who came and bore the judgment due on our sin. When Jesus Christ hung on that cross, he was the righteous one hanging in death for sinners. Those who receive him will have eternity with him in heaven. Those who refuse him ...hell. Turn to him now and surrender your life to the Savior. Think on your future and realize there's nothing more important in life than that.
