Following the nuclear deal with Iran, “The Pentagon has decided to reopen the Cheyenne Mountain Air Defense Facility [outside Colorado Springs, Colorado], which housed the heart of America’s air and missile defense of North America. The facility had been mothballed in a ‘cost-saving’ move in 2006… The reason—the Pentagon’s fears of a nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) attack by a missile that would burn out America’s overly-dependent defense, which is based on modern electronics” (Arutz Sheva, April 11, 2015).
Actions like this by the U.S. Defense Department are a reminder that the peace we enjoy in much of the world today is tenuous and not trusted by world leaders. Bible prophecy states that one of the signs of the end of the age will be “wars and rumors of wars” (Matthew 24:6-8) and that disobedience to the laws of God will bring “terror over you” and other serious consequences (Leviticus 26:16). Today, world leaders are very uncertain about the safety of the future as more nations gear up for possibility of war. For those who have eyes to see how world events are matching up with ancient Bible prophecies, it is becoming obvious that peaceful conditions in our modern world will disappear as the time of Christ’s return approaches.
