Can we expect a nuclear war?

Historically speaking, it is safe to say that anything is possible. Every weapon that has ever been manufactured has been used for the express purpose of destroying man. Will nuclear weapons be used? This issue is open to speculation.

However, the description we find in the Bible, particularly in the book of Revelation, is not the cause of a man-made nuclear holocaust. The endtime judgments we read about are unto destruction and they are caused by God, “�men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory” (Revelation 16:9). This makes it clear that God, not man, has the power over these plagues. The people “...blasphemed the name of God,” which means that they will know that God is the source of their punishment.

Incidentally, this shows how far deception can go. These plagues were the result of the fourth vial of wrath. Then the fifth vial is poured “�upon the seat of the beast and his kingdom�.” What is the result? “And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds” (verse 11).
