Does the BIBLE describe a coming Nuclear War?

I believe is does, but we get glimpses of it from several places in Prophecy. When we look at the whole picture, all of a sudden, we begin to see a massive war that has not happened yet, and it's end result can only be explained as a full scale Nuclear War. This is a war that HAS TO HAPPEN prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. My understanding of Biblical Prophecy is that while we are this side of the event, we can only make educated guesses at how it will all play out; HOWEVER, once the event has happed, it will absolutely fit the Prophecies perfectly. From the verses that I will show you, it is looking like this current War with ISIS, could lead to that unfulfilled War in Prophecy, that goes NUCLEAR.

The attack point of this War ultimately will aim at Israel, and Enemies still come from Syria, Iran, and Iraq, and Jordan gets caught in the middle, and thus they too suffer the devastation. If nukes are fired at Israel from any of those countries that I just mentioned, Israel with their Patriot missile batteries, will do their very best to knock them down before they cross their borders. That would cause many of them to fall in southern and western Jordan.

Isaiah 40:31 (HCSB)
[SUP]31 [/SUP] but those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.




MECHANIZED INFANTRY



Isaiah 13:17-20 (HCSB)
[SUP]17 [/SUP] Look! I am stirring up the Medes{Iran} against them, who cannot be bought off with silver and who have no desire for gold.
[SUP]18 [/SUP] ⌊Their⌋ bows will cut young men to pieces. They will have no compassion on little ones; they will not look with pity on children.
[SUP]19 [/SUP] And Babylon {Iraq}, the jewel of the kingdoms, the glory of the pride of the Chaldeans, will be like Sodom and Gomorrah when God overthrew them.
[SUP]20 [/SUP] It will never be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation; a nomad will not pitch his tent there, and shepherds will not let ⌊their flocks⌋ rest there.

Isaiah 34:6-10 (HCSB)

[SUP]6 [/SUP] The LORD’s sword is covered with blood. It drips with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
{Edom is Southern Jordan}
[SUP]7 [/SUP] The wild oxen will be struck down with them, and young bulls with the mighty bulls. Their land will be soaked with blood, and their soil will be saturated with fat.
[SUP]8 [/SUP] For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a time of paying back ⌊Edom⌋ for its hostility against Zion.
[SUP]9 [/SUP] ⌊Edom’s⌋ streams will be turned into pitch, her soil into sulfur; her land will become burning pitch.
[SUP]10 [/SUP] It will never go out—day or night. Its smoke will go up forever. It will be desolate, from generation to generation; no one will pass through it forever and ever.

Isaiah 17:1-3 (NKJV)
[SUP]1 [/SUP] The burden against Damascus. "Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,And it will be a ruinous heap.
[SUP]2 [/SUP] The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks Which lie down, and no one will make them afraid.
{The area of Aroer would be the area northeast of Jerusalem in Jordan, where the main city would be Phildelphia (Amman), Jordan.}
[SUP]3 [/SUP] The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, The kingdom from Damascus, And the remnant of Syria; They will be as the glory of the children of Israel," Says the LORD of hosts.


Does ISRAEL remain unscathed in this possibly soon to be Nuclear War. NO, but out of the devastation comes the good news of Jews turning to Christ, and that leads to the Second Coming of our LORD.


Ezekiel 12:19-20 (HCSB)
[SUP]19 [/SUP] Then say to the people of the land: This is what the Lord GOD says about the residents of Jerusalem in the land of Israel: They will eat their bread with anxiety and drink their water in dread, for their land will be stripped of everything in it because of the violence of all who live there.
[SUP]20 [/SUP] The inhabited cities will be destroyed, and the land will become a desolation. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.”

Zechariah 14:11 (HCSB)
[SUP]11 [/SUP] People will live there, and never again will there be a curse of complete destruction. So Jerusalem will dwell in security.

Zephaniah 3:11-17 (HCSB)
[SUP]11 [/SUP] On that day {The day of the Second Coming.} you will not be put to shame because of everything you have done in rebelling against Me. For then I will remove your proud, arrogant people from among you, and you will never again be haughty on My holy mountain.
[SUP]12 [/SUP] I will leave a meek and humble people among you, and they will take refuge in the name of Yahweh.
[SUP]13 [/SUP] The remnant of Israel will no longer do wrong or tell lies; a deceitful tongue will not be found in their mouths. But they will pasture and lie down, with nothing to make ⌊them⌋ afraid.
[SUP]14 [/SUP] Sing for joy, Daughter Zion; shout loudly, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all ⌊your⌋ heart, Daughter Jerusalem!
[SUP]15 [/SUP] The LORD has removed your punishment; He has turned back your enemy. The King of Israel, Yahweh, is among you; you need no longer fear harm.
[SUP]16 [/SUP] On that day it will be said to Jerusalem: “Do not fear; Zion, do not let your hands grow weak.
[SUP]17 [/SUP] Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring ⌊you⌋ quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy.”


And some of you thought GOD was finished with ISRAEL. I did not get into Tribulation Events, because we have enough to focus on just seeing there is potentially a pre-Second Coming War that probably will go NUCLEAR, very quickly; but sandwiched in between the above War and the Second Coming will be the Seven Year Peace Treaty with Israel and her enemies. That Peace Treaty will be orchestrated by the Anti-Christ, and his seven year Reign will also be known as the Great Tribulation. But let's save all that for another thread dealing specifically with that issue.

So in conclusion, Do I believe the above War is describing Nuclear strikes? Yes I do.

Do I believe the Current War with ISIS is the beginning of that War? I think that is highly probable.

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. Rev 8:7

Some years ago I watched a documentary. It said that if there was nuclear war between countries that had nuclear weapons this would cover a third of the earth. A cloud would cover a third of the earth where this war took place and the sun and the moon would not therefore shine on a third of the earth.

So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[SUP][a][/SUP] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— [SUP]16 [/SUP]then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. [SUP]17 [/SUP]Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. [SUP]18 [/SUP]Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. [SUP]19 [/SUP]How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! [SUP]20 [/SUP]Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. [SUP]21 [/SUP]For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. Matt24:15-21

What is the Holy place? Jerusalem. What is an abomination that causes desolation? Nuclear weapons. Israel has nuclear weapons. What could cause distress unequalled since the begining of the world? A nuclear war

I agree with everything you said except your last point.

The abomination which causes desolation was known to Jews in the time of Christ as an Idol placed in the holy place. making it desolate, or unclean.


This prophesy would mean nothing really for us, But for the jews, when they see it, It will be the begining of their seeking truth, because they will remember reading this someplace.

It's true God has much up His sleeve for Israel...but a nuclear war against her? Nah, maybe a few other countries will be obliterated by one.

you ,mean like this?


Zechariah 14:12
And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

This description would fit perfectly with a detonated hydrogen bomb, in fact this is what we are told will happen to people near the detonation.

I remember hearing this descrition (from a science viewpoint, not biblical) during the cold war in school. and I will be honest, it scared the crap out of me.

I think ''fluid''(hope that is the right word) can be used concerning some of the prophecies and exactly what they refer to, so I have no problem with your interpretation concerning my last paragraph. Possibly it can be viewed more ways than one.

To interpret your words, or interpret prophesy?? lol Sorry not sure what you mean bro.

I just chose to interpret prophesy concerning who they were written to. from their perspective.

I also think God gave us the warning of interpreting prophesy in a symbolic way, when he said if a man prophesy, and it does not happen exactly the way it was said, that man is a false prophet.

which is why I decry ammillenialism, it is based on symbolic. non literal interpretation of prophesy, which goes against Gods own instructions on how to interpret prophesy.

I think alot of misinterpretations come because we do not literally interpret the word from a historical perspective.

Jesus mentions the abomination, and said when Israel sees it they are to flee to the mountains. for then their will be great tribulation,.

It is at this point, your trumpets start to shound and the time of Gods wrath is poured out on earth.

if that makes sense to you.

I don't spend much time considering this subject. But it would seem to me you can link nuclear war, to darkness covering a third of the earth, distress will be seen on a scale never before seen since the creation of the world, then after this the son of man will appear. But that is as far as I would want to go. I do not consider myself well versed, in all of scriptutre concerning this, nor would I consider myself an authority on it. I would agree the abomination brings the beginning of the great tribulation which I would believe coincides with a nuclear war. But I will bow of this discussion here, for as I say, I am certainly not avidly read on the subject, I am mainly going by Jesus speaking of what is to come on the earth in the Gospels

There are others verses which clearly reveals that this will be a nuclear cataclysm destroying the whole earth.

Regarding ISIS, the tyrants will disappear as quickly as they appeared...

if there will be a nuclear war, how could the prophecy of the number of beast (which people can only buy or sell with it) would be accomplished?...

I heard if there is a nuclear war, one billion people would die immediately, and another billion from starvation, due to not being able to farm the food needed where the war took place. Food would be very scarce, only a ''favoured few'' would be able to buy or sell. Don't know if that helps or not

lol. We can have fun with it. But not be so proud as to assume we know it all. I think the 1/3 world destroyed is north and south america, when all out nuclear strike is against us. it would take the world back to the way it was in Christs day

This should be in the conspiracy forum.

The Bible needs to be read in terms of the people it was written to, when it was written. God did write the Bible to us, but it was to reveal Jesus, not details of some war two millennium after Christ. Especially not pulling scriptures out of context!

This post is just idle speculation!

yes you are right we need to look at all these things


so Danial , knowing all wisdom, not know what would be in [ the latter days]

to revil what the gential kingdom world rule over Israel,

and then taking over kingdoms of man for good.


or patrac dying Israel telling sons what happens in [ the latter days ]

for if not [for] us today now seals unlocked.


or whole pages about unfilled verses , before it happened, on the word of God, reviled to you.

this should be in a bible forum to learn, not bury under a rock, it will not go away.


and iniquity is allmost at its higgest peak soon, time to sound the alarm.
