Nuclear War: Is This The End?



End times and the apocalypse have long been linked to possible nuclear war. The Bible describes that some 2,000 years ago, as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem with His disciples, He was asked what would happen at the end of the world.

The Bible says in Matthew 24:6 - "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.” The truth is that no one knows when this can happen. Despite of the fierce international tensions and “famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes”.


IN OUR OWN EFFORTS TO SAVE THE DISASTER - THINGS LOOK BLEAK!

The United States withdrew its nuclear weapons from South Korea in 1991 as part of its worldwide nonproliferation efforts and to try to persuade North Korea to reduce its nuclear program.

It still defends South Korea and non-nuclear Japan under a so-called nuclear umbrella, the idea that it would launch a devastating counterattack against any would-be aggressor. Recent advances in the North's weapons program have led some to call for this withdrawal to be reversed.

Faced with the rapid progress of Kim Jong Un's weapons program, some South Korean officials have called for American tactical nuclear weapons to be redeployed in their country. Tensions between North Korea and the United States have escalated in recent weeks with US President Donald Trump and dictator Kim embroiled in a war of words.


WHEN ALL EFFORTS FAIL, WHERE IS HOPE?

1 'It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat. 2 Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, “A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria; and they are in Hazazon Tamar” (which is En Gedi). 3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. 4 So Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.' - 2 Chronicles 20 : 1-4 NKJV

What GOD did in King Jehoshaphat's time applies today. Today, we are faced with threats from North Korea, the Middle East, the homegrown terrorism is on the rise! The multitude of hurricanes and forest fires, the loss of life and infrastructure is devastating. No matter where you look, it seems that there is no end to the trials and tribulations.

‘If disaster comes upon us—sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine—we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.’ - 2 Chronicles 20 : 9 NKJV

Not only personally but also, collectively, as a nation we are faced with challenges that are paramount. It all seems hopeless, and despair is evident in the faces of those who are seeking reprieve. Fortunately, as believers, we have a clear answer in the Bible – what the LORD said to Jehoshaphat applies to us today. We are called to be still, in prayer and turning from our sinful ways.

THE LORD IS ALIVE AND HE IS EVERLASTING.

'O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.' - 2 Chronicles 20 : 12 NKJV

So many Christians today are totally worn out because they’re trying to fight God’s battles in our own power.

When we first become Christians we tend to think, “God, You don’t know what a deal You got when You got me. I’m going to bring in Your kingdom single-handedly. I’ll go out and win the world and really help You.” So we work really hard but eventually come crawling back on our hands and knees saying, “Lord, I know I’ve really disappointed You. I’m so sorry. I’ve really let You down.”

But God replies, “No, you didn’t let Me down, because you weren’t holding Me up.”

Friends, here is a truth: We don’t hold up God – He holds us up.

How many of you have heard – God helps those who help themselves? The truth of the matter is – God helps those who can’t help themselves.

'You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.' - 2 Chronicles 20 : 17

The Christian life is a walk of faith. If God says He’ll take care of it – He will.

Friends, if you receive it, can you say AMEN? God bless you and give you peace as you pray and seek HIM.
