North Korea apparently has decided that test launching missiles is in its best interest as it allegedly fired at least three today:

South Korea says North Korea has fired three short-range missiles into the East Sea — also known as the Sea of Japan.

The South’s Defense Ministry says it detected two launches Saturday morning, followed by another in the afternoon.

Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok says the North’s intent was not clear.  He says South Korea’s military is watching for any additional launches and “possible provocations.”

Japan’s Kyodo news service reported a Japanese official confirmed the launches and said the missiles did not fall into Japanese waters.

The development comes during a period of tentative diplomacy aimed at easing tensions.  Earlier this year, Pyongyang threatened nuclear strikes on South Korea and the U.S. in light of annual U.S.-South Korean military drills and U.N. sanctions imposed on the North after its third nuclear test in February.

If North Korea does take certain steps to sufficiently aggravate the USA and Japan, it needs to realize that it likely will no longer exist as it is.

If North Korea does take certain steps to sufficiently aggravate South Korea, it needs to realize that this could cause South Korea to further arm itself and take actions on its own to eliminate the threat from North Korea.

The North Korean politicians are playing a dangerous game with their country and their people.

Biblical prophecy seems to suggest cooperation in Korea in the final time just prior to the return of Jesus Christ.

The Koreans are Asians and occupy the “land of the sunrise” (Revelation 16:2) and I believe that they are part of the kings of the east that the Book of Revelation discusses having a role in the end time (Revelation 9:16).  For years I have written that I expect that they will reunify.  The unification of North and South Korea is consistent with biblical prophecy.  But North Korea may take unusual actions before then, and it may regret doing so.

Whether this reunification will be because of a war involving the USA, South Korea, or something else (such as waiting until Revelation 9:16; & 16:2), is not clear. But the situation in Korea will change.

As Jesus said, “37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” (Mark 13:37)
