The books of Zechariah and Revelation prophesy two nuclear wars in the end time. We will analyze these prophesied wars, which occur in the very near future, on this edition of “End of the Age.”
Two nuclear wars, it’s almost hard to imagine, isn’t it? I really don’t–this is one of the prophecies, very ominous,
and I don’t even really like talking about it. But that’s right, it’s right there in your Bible. This world is headed straight for not one, but two nuclear wars. Does the Bible really prophesy two nuclear wars for the times just ahead? It’s unthinkable, but the prophecy in Zechariah 14 details events that will occur in the world’s last war, the battle of Armageddon. And I’m going to start there. Zechariah 14 verse 12 unmistakably teaches that nuclear weapons will be used in this last battle. The Bible says, “And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem;
Their flesh shall consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” The physical symptoms that this passage states will be suffered by those who come against Jerusalem at Armageddon are the exact same symptoms experienced by victims of nuclear radiation. Their eyes are consumed in their sockets, tongues in their mouths, and flesh falling off of their bones. It is the world’s worst-kept secret that Israel has significant nuclear arsenal. I mean, “Jane’s Intelligence Review” places the number of Israel’s nuclear missiles at around 200. The Israelis have promised that they will never resort to their nuclear option unless their
existence and the state of Israel is threatened. Israel’s nuclear capacity is known as “the Samson option.” Why “the Samson option”? Well, you know the story of Samson in the Bible. Samson begged God to allow his great strength to return to him
one last time, after he had lost his strength because he was deceived by Delilah, and his hair was cut. His strength was taken from him, but he asked God, “Lord, let it return one more time,” and God did grant Samson’s request; and as a result, in the end, he pulled down the house of the Philistine lords, killing himself and 3,000 of the enemy’s leaders. So, when Israel picked the name, “the Samson option,” she was notifying the world that, “Hey, if Israel goes down, we will
take all of our enemies with us.” And apparently, things will become so bad during the battle of Armageddon that Israel’s going to resort to “the Samson,” or the nuclear option. So, folks, yes, the world’s last war will be nuclear. The “Times of Israel” reported that at Israel’s nuclear facility, Dimona, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at a ceremony renaming the nuclear reactor down in Dimona. Now, I’ve been– we’ve been to Israel. When we ask the guides, “What’s Dimona?” they’ll say, “Oh, that’s just a textile factory.” They keep everything under wraps. But while Netanyahu was down
there speaking and renaming the nuclear reactor, which is really what Dimona is, to the Shimon Perez Negev Nuclear Research Center, after the late Israeli statesman back in–when was it–August of 2018, as a warning to Iran and others, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that any country that threatens to destroy Israel risks meeting the similar fate, while vowing to continue taking action against the Islamic Republic’s military presence. Israel has never acknowledged
possessing nuclear weapons, but instead has maintained a policy of strategic ambiguity; however, Israel, in fact, does
have nuclear weapons. Netanyahu said that, “Our enemies, now, they know very well what Israel’s capable of doing.
They are familiar with our policy. Whoever tries to hurt Israel, we will hurt them.” So, he said, “I’m describing a persistent, clear, and determined policy backed by appropriate deployment, equipment, preparedness, and, in the hour of need, appropriate orders.” And he said that the Israeli military will continue to take action against Iran’s military and issued an emphatic warning against those who call for Israel’s annihilation, such as the Islamic Republic has done many times, over and over. He said, “Whoever threatens us with destruction puts himself in a similar danger, and in any case, will not achieve that goal.” So, folks, the world’s last war, the battle of Armageddon, will be nuclear. Now, the other nuclear war–yes, we’ve got to talk about–there’s going to be another one that will precede the battle of Armageddon. Why talk about it now? Because it’s time. The first five trumpets have already occurred, and this war, this World War III, is the sixth trumpet in the book of Revelation. So, there is a question. Is Iran and Israel headed for a war, possibly a nuclear war? I mean, many of you have heard the news articles and read them lately. Israel may have to go it alone against the nuclear-armed Iran. Does Israel feel compelled to launch a strike at Iran’s nuclear sites? Iran will have nuclear weapons if Biden re-enters the JCPOA, the Joint Comprehensive Plan or Action, or the Iran Nuclear 2015 deal. Iran just weeks away from enough fissile material for making a nuclear bomb, or the stage is set for possible Israel-Iran clash. How will Biden respond? Israel defense force is drawing up plans to strike Iran’s nuclear program. Israel, their military chief says that plans to attack Iran are on the table, if it’s decided politically. Or Israel’s vows, “Never again,” at the holocaust memorial.

I must say that an Israel-Iran nuclear conflict is strictly speculation, but it’s not out of the question. There could be many ways and places that this could start. We know it’s gonna start along the Euphrates River region, so I watch Iran all the time, ’cause it appears, and many believe, that we’ve been in war with Iran for decades now, and it’s just not escalated
to the point where there would be mass casualties. But at least the 3 1/2 years before the battle of Armageddon–these are two separate wars–maybe longer, another war is going to occur. The prophecy foretelling this war found in Revelation 9, verse 13 through 16, the Bible says, “Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ‘Release the four angels who are bound at the
great river Euphrates.’ So, the four angels, who had been prepared for an hour, a day, a month, and a year, they were
released to kill a third of mankind. Now the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred million; and I heard
the number of them.” So, it does not explicitly state that this war will be nuclear, but the results of the war indicate
that it will have to be. One-third of the world’s population destroyed. So, the four angels, who had been prepared for an hour, a day, a month, and a year, they were released to kill a third of all of mankind. We’ve never seen anything like
that on the earth, a war that kills one-third of mankind, and now the number of the army, the million, and I heard the number of them. So, the prophecy states that a war is coming, gonna kill one-third of all of mankind. And, you know, taken at face value, this means that 2.5 to, what, 2.7 billion people are going to die in this war, and there’s only one weapon
presently available to mankind that could reap this level of death and havoc and devastation, nuclear bomb, folks. And then think about it. In verses–in Revelation chapter 9, verses 17 through 19, I have a question. Do you think this is
describing nuclear warfare? Listen at it: Revelation 9:17-19, John said, “And thus I saw the horse in the vision: and those who sat upon them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. And it was by these three plagues a third of all of mankind was killed–by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.” Now, you remember, John is–this prophecy is given 2,000 years ago. He had never seen a nuclear bomb. He’d never seen a bomb, never heard of anything like that. So, he’s doing his best 2,000 years ago to describe modern-day warfare. He says, “For their power–” He might be seeing nuclear bombs come across, and he says, “For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.” So, I can’t say with certainty John was describing nuclear weapons in this passage; however, with the understanding of the prophecy and the amount of casualties from this war, it is definitely something that we have to consider, that this would be a nuclear war, very highly likely. And we’re also told that one of the armies involved in this war is going to number two hundred million soldiers. The other army that will
participate in the war will almost certainly be the only nation on earth that has the nuclear arsenal capable of wreaking this kind of death and destruction, besides Russia, and that’s the United States. And this prophesied conflict is obviously–it’s going to be the biggest, the most horrible war that the world has ever known, much bigger than the battle of Armageddon.
This is going to be a global war. It’s going to start in the Middle East region, spread out around the world, but the battle of Armageddon is going to be centralized right there in Israel. Bible is very clear on that. So, this war is going to be much bigger with much more devastation than the battle of Armageddon. So, another question: Where will the six trumpet war lead to at the end, the culmination of this war, when the smoke clears? What’s going to be the state of the world, the mindset of the world after this? We’ve never seen anything like it. I mean, all of us would agree that the world has not been the same since even 3,000 fatalities after 9/11, right? It changed the world. Look at how, when you go to fly, enter a federal building, anything like that. National IDs around the world. off since 9/11, especially herein the United States. And–but think about it. What quantum changes will undoubtedly occur when mankind awakens to this unbelievable chaos of 2.5
to 2.7 billion corpses? Well, you can be assured that our world is gonna change forever. I mean, the cries will be deafening for a world government with teeth, with enforcement methods that can prevent a war like this from ever happening again.
I mean, there will be nations that say to the United Nations, “Hey, we’ll yield up all of our our allegiance to you, if you’ll just keep this horrible event from ever happening again, a world war.” I mean, the horror of what has happened will create the perfect platform for the antichrist and the false prophet to rise to power. The same unprecedented destruction that will drive millions into the arms of the antichrist will drive others towards a true relationship with God. I mean, the biblical Christians will be motivated to levels of total commitment not witnessed on the earth since the early church, and the result is going to be great revival. Read Revelation chapter 7. It’s the revival chapter in the book of Revelation. So, while some people are just going straight into the arms of the antichrist, other people will be going straight into the arms of the real Christ and turning to the Lord in time of need, turning to Jesus Christ after the most chaotic situation, the most chaotic war, with the most casualties ever in the history of mankind, rather than turning to the arms of the antichrist, which is the wrong thing to do. So, the next question is, what should we be doing, as Christians? Well, the unspeakable conditions that will result from this prophesied war, they’re capable of striking horrible–or I should say horror in the heart of the bravest human beings. I mean, it is the time to head for the hills. I mean, some people would say that. Just, “let’s go to Colorado, buy up a bunch of property, and dig a hole, and bury ourselves in it.” But what should be the mindset of Christians at this unprecedented junction in human history? I mean, should that be the mindset of Christians, just go hide in a foxhole? No, Jesus said that we are the salt of the earth. He said that we are the light of the world. And it is time to remove the light–is it time to remove the light, when, just when the world is going to need it the most? Well, of course not. Jesus told us that, “Where sin doth abound, grace doth much more abound.” Can you see the disciples hiding in a foxhole beyond the book of Acts? No way. They were bold. In the face of a world government, they went out, and they filled Jerusalem with their doctrine, and they were witnesses in Judea, Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the world, into Jerusalem. So, the world was in great darkness when Jesus came to the earth the first time. Matthew 4:16 spoke of that time concerning the coming of Jesus. It said, “The people which sat in darkness saw a great light. And them which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up.” So, the world is once again in darkness, as we near the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. And of our time, this time that we’re living in right now, the end time, the prophet Daniel prophesied and said, “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he,” the antichrist, “corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many,” for the times that are just ahead of us. So, the church is not going to be a weak, anemic group of people that are scared to death, running around in just an utter chaos mode. That’s not the church of the end time. Daniel prophesied and said, “Hey, they that do know their God are going to be strong, and they’re going to do exploits.” And there is a prophesied great time of revival ahead of us. In the troubled times that lie just ahead, the true church of Jesus Christ will be able to hold forth the wonderful promise of eternal life in a world awash with death. And when the final chapter of the church age is written, the caption will undoubtedly read, “It was their finest hour.” Now, the next question that comes up is: When? When will these wars happen? At what time, on a timeline, or how far away are they? Well, the battle of Armageddon is the easiest to place on a timeline. If I was drawing a big timeline on the wall in back of me or had a big screen here with a timeline on it, the battle of Armageddon is really easy, where to place it. The battle of Armageddon occurs at the end of the great tribulation, which is also when the wrath of God is poured out. In Revelation chapter 16, verse 1 through 16, Revelation 16 tells you about the seven vials of the wrath of God. In verse 1, the Bible says, “And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.” That’s Revelation 16, verse 1. And then in verses 2 through 14, the first six vials of God’s wrath are poured out. And then the sixth vial is where the great river Euphrates is dried up, to make where the kings of the earth to come down against Israel for the battle of Armageddon. That’s all the way down to verse 14, but in verse 15 the Bible says, “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” This is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, right there at the battle of Armageddon. 1 Thessalonians 5, verses 1 through 2, the apostle Paul said, “Hey, but of the times and seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you, for yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord,” when the Lord is going to pour his wrath out, and that’s his second coming, he says, “for yourselves know perfectly the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” This is what Revelation 16:15 is referring to. “Behold, I come as a thief.” And then in the very next verse, 16, the Bible says, “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon.” Armageddon will originate in the plain of Megiddo, in northern Israel, and then that’s where the battle will be engaged, and then they will fight down the Jordan Valley and up, and the battle will culminate in the valley of Jehoshaphat, right there between the Mount of Olives and the Temple Mount, right outside Jerusalem. And–I should say the old city of Jerusalem. And so that’s the battle of Armageddon. It’s right at the end of the great tribulation period, right at the end of the final seven years. You say, “Well, okay, what about the sixth trumpet, this other nuclear war that’s going to happen?” Well, the Bible says that it will happen sometime before the great tribulation. The great tribulation begins 3 1/2 years before the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I know that some people have taught that Revelation chapter 9, verse 13 through 21, this sixth trumpet war is the same as the battle of Armageddon. That’s not what the Bible teaches. They’re two separate wars. And Daniel chapter 7, verse 25, tells us this explicitly. It says the little horn, the antichrist, will make war against the saints for time, times, and half a time. So, a time is one year, times is two years, and half a time is a half a year. And then Revelation 13:5 says the same thing, but it states the time in a different way. It says, “Power was given unto him,” who? The antichrist, “to continue 42 months.” And it doesn’t say 3 1/2 years there. It says 42 months, which is 3 1/2 years, and he makes war against the saints and prevails against them. So, time, times, and half a times from Daniel 7:25 is referring to the exact same amount of time as the 42 months referenced in Revelation 13:5. Now, additionally, Revelation, what, 12:6 says the dragon makes war against the woman, Israel, for 1,260 days; 1,260 days, again, is 3 1/2 years.
