Everyone talks about the coming World War lll as tensions rise around the globe each passing day. This third world war was spoken of by John the apostle in the book of Revelations as the 6th Trumpet War where a third of mankind will be wiped out. To completely understand what a third of mankind would be, we currently have 7.5 billion people living on earth which would bring a total death coming from the war to a whopping 2.5 billion people!
“So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.” (Revelations 9:15 NKJV).
World War l presented a grand total of over 38 million deaths including both military and civilians. World War 2 presented a grand total of over 80 million deaths of both military and civilians. As devastating as these wars were they are still nothing compared to what is to come in the near future.
The 6th Trumpet War:
We are definitely on the verge of this 6th trumpet war as the global tensions are set on high like never before. Another interesting and scary thought to add to the scene is the fact that China has the potential at this moment to fulfill the prophecy following verse 15. Not only to they have the capability, but they are also in the location needed to fulfill the prophecy. China currently has a military exceeding 2 million people, and yet they have been suggested to provide an army of over 200 million if need be.
“Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.” (16-17).
Now many people ask at this moment, so when will the 6th trumpet war happen? Many Christians believe that this will all take place during the great tribulation, but when looking closer at what needs to take place for the full rise of the Antichrist and new world order, one must conclude that there first needs to be a great war to diminish population and to reconstruct society as a whole.
To bring a full on unified global system greater than the one we currently have, there must be a population decrease and reconstruction of society for better control and for the rise of a full on cashless society. The 2030 agenda plan by the UN is already in full swing, but for it to be fully implemented correctly, there must be a better way of control and scrutinize of people and cities.
The best way to have people obey, just like after 9/11, is to put fear in the hearts and minds of the remaining population and to introduce a new societal and economical structure in which people can dwell “safely” and “united as one.” This may seem a bit far fetched, but just take a look at what has been happening over the years and you will better understand where I am coming from and where I am going with this.
“He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Revelations 13: 13-18).
The remaining population will be so frightened by what happened during the 6th trumpet war that they will want to reconstruct society in such a way as to unify people around the world, get rid of conflict by abolishing religion, borders and nations. Set up a true one world policy and government as well as ultimately begin a new world religion in which they worship the beast and the Antichrist.
“But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.” (20-21).
The Coming Mark Of The Beast:
Not only does this give a chance to reconstruct society, but you can be rest assured that Christians will be most of what are killed off during the 6th Trumpet War, leaving only a remnant of lasting believers that will be dust in the wind compared to the masses. On top of that, this will also give the Antichrist a great introduction as a “peacemaker” as he helps end World War lll and bring a unifying system throughout the world.
“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27).
Now I will say that this is more theory than anything, but I do use scripture to back it up as well as now day facts of what is currently happening around the world. The Lord has called us to be watchful and to stand firm during the trials ahead as persecution and the rise of the Antichrist spring forth.
Many Christians at this point say, “What about the rapture? Surely we will be taken up before any of this happens?” To be honest, I do not know and no one does. Jesus said, “You know not the hour of my coming, so always be ready.” Whether He comes before, during or after, let us always be ready and watchful, filled with the Holy Spirit.
