This time the threats are different
3/14/16 – With the annual US/South Korea military drills near China getting North Korea’s Kim Jong Un in a tizzy, his threats have become more troublesome, at least according to the reaction of the military powers.
China has told him to cool it, the US has told him to cool it, and last week Russia told him to knock it off because the threats encourage a military response…from someone.
Russia has warned North Korea that threats to deliver “preventive nuclear strikes” could create a legal basis for the use of military force against the country, suggesting that even Pyongyang’s few remaining friends are growing concerned about its increasingly confrontational stance.
The Russian foreign ministry statement, which follows a North Korean threat to “annihilate” the US and South Korea, also criticises Washington and Seoul for launching the largest joint military drills yet to be held on the peninsula.
“We consider it to be absolutely impermissible to make public statements containing threats to deliver some ‘preventive nuclear strikes’ against opponents,” the Russian foreign ministry said in response to North Korea’s threats.
“Pyongyang should be aware of the fact that in this way the DPRK will become fully opposed to the international community and will create international legal grounds for using military force against itself in accordance with the right of a state to self-defense enshrined in the United Nations Charter,” continued the statement, translated by Itar Tass news agency.

Monday, Russia pulls troops out of Syria. I haven’t seen any mention that Russia was previously planning this move, so it does seem as if it was based upon an action or event of some kind.
Russia can’t fight on both fronts, so could this be a sign that Putin is taking Un’s threats seriously enough to regroup troops in anticipation of deepening conflict?
It sure seem that Russia is taking this threat seriously, especially after North Korea sent it’s new claimed “satellite” up.
It’s also true that Putin doesn’t want any excuse for the US to get more involved there. After all, Russia shares borders with both China and North Korea.
Apparently unmoved by the global community’s opposition, Tuesday Un made another threat.
“North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared that Pyongyang would conduct a nuclear warhead test in the coming days and test launch ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, the official KCNA news agency reported on Tuesday. Kim’s regime countered last week that the country has, in fact, miniaturized a nuclear warhead. If successful, the test would signify that North Korea has become an existential threat to the people of South Korea and, potentially, those living on the US mainland.”
There have also been jabs traded between North and South Korean in recent weeks, some of which are noteworthy.
This escalation is very troubling. Everyone knows Un is a maniac. And, yes, he’s made many threats before, but that was before he put something up in the atmosphere circling over the earth and now has a new weapon to play with. It seems that sooner or later he may choose to act upon his threats.
Respected author and consultant Joel Skousen of World Affairs Brief stated in a 2014 interview on InfoWars that he believes the trigger will be North Korea. If something nuclear happens with North Korea, we may have two days before the US and China are in it.
“The trigger event has to be North Korea. When you see North Korean launch against the South… and they do some minor military attack every year, so you’ve got to be careful not to confuse those with a major artillery barrage on Seoul…If this ever starts you know you’re days away from nuclear war. People ought to get out of major cities that are major nuclear targets.
“Here’s how I think it’s going down. I think there will be an attack against South Korea. The North Koreans have over two million troops… 20,000 artillery… they can level Seoul in a matter of three or four days. The only way the U.S. can stop that attack is using tactical nuclear weapons.
“And that would give China the excuse to nuke the United States. U.S. is guilty of first-use, the U.S. is the bully of the world, Russia and Chinese unite to launch against U.S. military targets. Not civilian targets per say. There will be about 12 or 15 cities that are inextricably connected with the military that are going to get hit that I mentioned in Strategic Relocation… you don’t want to be in those cities.
“You may have two days notice when that attack in Korea starts, before China launches on the United States.
“And if you ever see everything blackout, because both Russia and China will use a preemptive nuclear EMP strike to take down the grid… before the nukes actually fall… anytime you see all electricity out, no news, nothing at all… that’s the time you need to be getting out of cities before the panic hits.”

All at the same time we are swept up in the most volatile presidential election in modern history and civil unrest is a very real threat.
Might the threat of war be the event that could cause what some in the prophetic community say causes Obama to not leave office?
We must pray for Trump’s safety. We must pray for deescalation of these events globally. We must repent and stay on our knees. This is the most tenuous time in my memory and I would be surprised if we get through this year of 2016 without a major event. It’s just boiling so frantically and the globalists march ahead with their agenda knowing full well how many lives are to be lost…but then that is one of their objectives.
Don’t let this luciferian cabal NWO divide us. We are united in Christ/Yeshua! If you are reading this, you are part of the resistance, no matter what your color or country. Stand together, resist the tyranny and we can defeat their plan.
No matter where you are, you have been prayed for today. If you don’t know Yeshua Jesus as your personal savior, don’t wait, ask Him to come in to your heart right now. We’re almost out of time.
L_rd, give us wisdom and courage!
