Sunday, “Defense Secretary James Mattis warned Pyongyang against aggression against the United States or its allies, saying it would trigger a unified world response and what he termed the “total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea.”
Many have asked if this crisis with North Korea is reason to be watchful for the return of Jesus Christ. Certainly Jesus intended that those who love Him would be ever watchful for His return, particularly when events are taking place around the world that Jesus said would take place just before He arrived.
The possibility of a global Thermonuclear War would necessitate the intervention of God. There are many prophecies of the Messiah that Jesus must still fulfill which would preclude the event of a war that could destroy most of the people on earth.
