Does North Korea have a part in the final act of the current civilization on Earth? Is North Korea symbolized somewhere in the Book of Revelation? Is North Korea the catalyst that will ignite the third and final world war?
These are questions that have come to mind lately as N. Korea continues its quest to terrorize the civilized world via nuclear proliferation. Like an unruly child, the leaders of N. Korea have had no discipline from the world to keep it in check. If a child never receives discipline, they grow up to be a brat, like Kim Jong-un, the current leader of N. Korea. His father and grandfather were the same.
Could N. Korea play a role in the invasion of Israel by the kings of the East?
According to scripture, in the last days an invasion force will come from the East and join the final Battle of Armageddon in Israel. For whatever reason, the Euphrates River will be dry and the force of "two hundred million" soldiers will cross easily.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Revelation 16:12
Revelation is very specific on the number of the forces at 200,000,000; and at the time John wrote this vision, there were no armies of 200,000,000. World population estimates when John wrote the words of Revelation were less than 170,000,000, so an army of 200,000,000 would be quite the miracle.
For church scholars who say John was referring to Emperor Nero as the anti-christ and Revelation has already happened, where was the army of 200-million? When was the invasion?
World War II had combined armies of less than 50-million. It is only recently that a single country could man an army of 200,000,000.
And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. Revelation 9:15-16 NASB
China is the 4th largest country in area but the largest country in population at 1.4-billion. China is rumored to already have mandatory/voluntary military forces in excess of 200,000,000.
Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim country and has a military of 400,000.
India can field an army of 1,400,000 with a population of 1.3-billion.
N. Korea, with a population of only 25,000,000 has an army of 1,300,000, almost the size of India's.
When one examines a map of China, N. Korea looks like a small appendage, like an appendix. N. Korea is the inflamed appendix and China's puppet to see how much the world will actually put up with before striking back. China could stop N. Korea's nuclear shenanigans in a minute, but why should they. China is building man-made military islands in the South China Sea and claiming the international waters as their own. They need their puppet to keep the world busy.
Like Walid Shoebat, I consider an Islamic invasion as Muslims from Kazakhstan, Takistan, Chechen and other areas to the east join China, India and Indonesia, to be the greatest possibility because there are so many Muslim countries between China and Israel.
A few weeks ago, N. Korea threatened Israel and claimed they (Israel) were the only illegal possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East.
N. Korea is a renegade, pariah country. They appear to listen to no one. They do not believe in the God of Abraham so do not believe the Jews are any different than anyone else; only inferior to them. If there is an anti-christ spirited country on the planet, they qualify.
Another way N. Korea fits into prophecy of the last days is their kinship with ancient Persia (Iran). While the world gnashes teeth over the possibility of Iran developing nuclear weapons, my guess is they already have acquired them from N. Korea.
According to a missile proliferation expert at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, "The very first missiles we saw in Iran were simply copies of North Korean missiles. Over the years, we've seen photographs of North Korean and Iranian officials in each other's countries, and we've seen all kinds of common hardware."
N. Korea is developing more than nuclear weapons and delivery systems, as we the world sit idly by while they plan Armageddon.
According to CNN, officials, they "...are also investigating suspicions that North Korea might have been involved in the recent ransomware cyber-attack on computers around the world, which hit close to 300,000 machines in 150 different countries, in one of the largest incidents of its kind ever recorded."
Rabbi Levi Sa'adia Nachamanii's prediction in 1994 seems to have called it:
"Not Syria, not Persia (Iran), and not Babylon (Iraq), and not Gaddafi (Libya)," the rabbi said, referring to Israel's greatest threats at the time. "Korea will arrive here."
Nachmani also correctly predicted the Six Day War in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
N. Korea has been a thorn in the world's side since the non-ending of the Korean War in 1953. In 1968, they captured a US Navy ship, the USS Pueblo and humiliated the crew and the United States. Now the thorn has become the size of a telephone pole... or a ballistic missile. They have stated their intent. Destroy the United States. Nuke Tokyo. Sell Iran nuclear weapons. Terrorize S. Korea. This is a Satanic country, but let's just keep our heads in the sand and let it happen. Seems we are destined.
