How World War III Will Start
Is World War iii imminent?
The Bible answers: Yes.
In Matthew 24, Christ prophesied that prior to His return there would be “great tribulation.” “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21). The “great tribulation” is World War iii.
Christ also warned that World War iii would be so violent that “except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved” (verse 22). Only one type of conflict can threaten human survival: global nuclear war.
How will World War iii begin?
Christ said the “great tribulation” would be triggered by events in Jerusalem. “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation there of is nigh” (Luke 21:20).
Daniel 11:40 prophesies that World War iii will begin with the clash of two great powers:
- The king of the north: a German-led, Catholic European empire
- The king of the south: an Iran-led axis of radical Islamist organizations and nations
Verse 41 reveals that this clash revolves around Jerusalem.
Zechariah 14:2 describes the capturing of East Jerusalem by Arabs supported by Iran. The capture of East Jerusalem will be the catalyst for the “king of the north” to descend on the Middle East and crush the “king of the south.” This battle will initiate World War iii.
This time of Great Tribulation will culminate in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
