Zechariah 13:8 and the Rest of the World

Many of you are wondering why this should be important to you. A barely visible country on the world map is going to be destroyed. The death of several million people would be really bad, but won’t affect you. And, it’s all theoretical, anyway.

The problem is that you aren’t just wrong. You are SUICIDALLY wrong. What happens in Israel will shake the world. The millions that die in Israel will translate into billions in the rest of the world. It will be the beginning of The End.

Think about that for a moment. What kind of war would cause two thirds of a population to die, leaving one third to survive as casualties?

I’ve studied war for more than thirty years, and I can think of only one kind of war that could leave more dead than injured:

Nuclear War

But, nuclear war in the Middle East, doesn’t mean nuclear war in the rest of the world, right?

Wrong.

This is the Battle of Gog and Magog. Remember who is involved in Gog and Magog: Russia and her allies, also Iran and North Africa. Do you remember what I said about Russian military strategy vis-a-vis, nuclear weapons?

In my article, Nuclear Gog and Magog, you would have found this quote from the Langley Intelligence Group Network, or Lignet (via WND):

“Russian military doctrine has a solution for any technological advantages enjoyed by U.S. forces: striking first,” the Lignet report said. “Indeed, the Russian military doctrine of ‘de-escalation’ calls for prevailing in and terminating a regional conflict by the early use of nuclear weapons to defeat the adversary – usually the United States, in military writings – and to cow the enemy into submission by this Russian version of ‘shock and awe,’” the report said.

Now, if the Russians (or Iranians) use nuclear weapons on Israel, do you think that they won’t use them anywhere else?

In fact, if I was Russia… and if I was attacking an area of vital interest to the United States… I would certainly expect the US to respond with overwhelming force. Furthermore, I would expect the US to win such a battle.

So yes, according to their current military doctrine, Russia would use nuclear weapons against the US, as a part of an attack on American hegemony in the Middle East.

But, in our suicidal self-interest, we are forgetting someone far, far bigger than all of this:

GOD

Here’s what God said that He would do to Magog and the rest of the world:

And I will send a fire on Magog, and on them that dwell securely in the isles; and they shall know that I am Jehovah.Ezekiel 39:6

That could be anything from a Coronal Mass Ejection striking the Earth, to a nuclear exchange between the US and Russia. Whatever happens, this will be catastrophic for everyone – including you.

Are you ready for this?
