Does the Bible prophesy the use of nuclear weapons in the end times?
Revelation speaks of a third of the earth being burned during the Tribulation.
Isaiah prophesies that one day the oldest city in the world – Damascus – will be destroyed in one day. Isaiah 17:14 “In the evening sudden terror. Before the morning they are gone,” and we know from Isaiah 17:9 that it will be because of Israel, a nuclear armed country.
Zechariah 14:12 reads, “This is the plague in which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem.”This” is in reference to Armageddon, where we’re also told, “Their flesh will rot while they are standing on their feet. Their eyes will rot in their sockets and their tongues will rot in their mouth.”
In Luke 21:26 Jesus said, “Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world. The heavenly bodies will be shaken.”
The Sixth Seal Judgment in Revelation 6:14-15, “The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.”
Revelation is ripe with verses which talk about the annihilation of the planet and the resulting effects that sound very nuclear radiation in origin.
As a matter of fact, when you look at the people by the end of the Tribulation, they are covered in sores and boils, which is very much like radiation contamination. Also, the Earth’s ecosystem is almost all destroyed.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-7, says that when the Church is removed so is the “Restrainer.” The Holy Spirit’s work through the Church will be raptured out of this world so that man’s inhibition can be let loose.
The restraint against mankind using nuclear warfare will no longer be there anymore, so man will feel free to use them.
Is this world facing a very definite nuclear holocaust?
