The North Koreans have successfully made nuclear weapons AND the missile delivery systems to use them.
Recent tests have the Pentagon concluding that the NK's can reach Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston...possibly Washington DC.
Now, when their leader Kim Jong Un spews his rhetoric against the US, it has taken on a new tone.
God says in His Word in Ezekiel 13: 12-14
So God says that He will judge the land because of their unfaithfulness towards Him. He even gives three of the most righteous men the Bible as an example. God says that they (Noah, Daniel and Job) would survive but their sons and daughters wouldn't. This alludes that the sons and daughters might be unfaithful, but are covered by their fathers faith. God normally protects the family of the righteous believer, but in this case no. Remember Lots wife?
So, could we (the USA) be ready to get a judgment from God Almighty? Have we (the USA) gone away from God? Have our leaders made laws and decisions against God? I think that anyone who is thinking clearly knows that the answer is yes.
What would a judgment from God look like? Well, looking at Israel's past we see the judgments of God as invasions from the Assyrians, the Babylonians and finally the Romans.
The Babylonians took basically everything, gold, silver and mostly people. God saved His faithful through this invasion. Remember Daniel? Ezekiel etc.
There wasn't the technology that we have here in the 21st century.
Imagine a EMP attack, which would disable the electronics of this nation. No ATM's no credit cards no electronic money. Water supplies and sewage would not work, not to mention refrigeration and transportation and garbage disposal. Do you think that most people have food storage? or even the ability to purify their water or grow food?
Now combine that EMP with the Biblical Rapture. Remove millions of believing Christians and the Holy Spirit...and you have the start of the horrors of what the Bible portrays aas the End Times. The resultant worldwide confusion and turmoil would usher in the anti-Christ. People would do ANYTHING for peace and safety. Imagine if North Korea fired off a nuke on South Korea and got one or two off on the US.
The attacks on Israel, which is outlined in Ezekiel 38 and the destruction of Damascus described in Isaiah 17 would put Israel on the front page of the worlds news for the next seven years.
Anyway you shake it, we are on a thin foothold.
The Russians have a saying, "May you live in exciting times"
It's time to get right with God if you haven't.
