“Orthodox” 16th Century Representation of the “Apocalypse”
Certain “experts” apparently believe that WWIII will start in 2014 and at least one Russian believes that the preliminaries have began:
Russian Geopolitical Analyst: “World War III Has Already Begun”NJP – March 28, 2010 By Gilbert Mercier
…The man expressing the idea is Konstantin Sivkov, he is Russian and the Vice President of the Academy for Geopolitical Issues. Sivkov thinks that “World War III will start 100 years after WWI (2014) and will take lives of hundreds of millions people worldwide”. http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/03/28/russian-geopolitical-analyst-world-war-iii-has-already-begun/World War III Has Already BegunPravda, Russia – March 25, 2010
Some experts believe that World War III will start 100 years after the first one and will take lives of hundreds of millions of people. Some scientists think that the war is already going on, nareing the completion of its first stage.
If WWIII is defined as a “hot war” that Russia is also engaged in, then 2014 is too early for that to occur.
At this instant, 2013 is the earliest possible date for the Great Tribulation to begin, but that is almost impossible as it would require a seven-year (prophetic “week”) Middle East peace deal to be confirmed by a European “prince” (Daniel 9:26-27) within the next 86 days (the Great Tribulation will begin about 3 1/2 years after such a deal and 3 1/2 years after July 1, 2010 would be a date of 2014). 2014-2017 are more likely start dates.
But when the Great Tribulation begins, it will be “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7) and will not directly involve a “hot world war” with Russia.
Russia and her allies are prophesied to be at war around the time of Armageddon, but the earliest that could be would be 2017 (one needs to add almost 1290 days to the 3 1/2 years), with 2018 or so perhaps more likely. Thus, the Russian prediction of a WWIII involving Russia and hundreds of millions dying in 2014 is premature.
The end will come, but not quite that soon–but it could possibly come that early for the USA and its Anglo-allies. The “experts” that “believe that World War III will start 100 years after the first one ” are in error–if they are referring to a Russian war. All need to compare their predictions with the Bible.
