COUNTDOWN TO CATASTROPHE: The Doomsday Clock is ticking down

With tensions spiking over a nuclear-capable North Korea, Donald Trump in the White House, India and Pakistan at odds and Vladimir Putin set to remain in power in Russia, the world continues to teeter on the brink of Armageddon.

The Doomsday Clock is a design that warns the public about how close we are to destroying our world, and is set by a board consisting of scientists and other experts.

The clock design conveys the sense of urgency to get nuclear weapons under control.

It stood at a frightening two and a half minutes to midnight last year.

With this year’s reading revealed this week, we asked an expert what we can expect.

Bruce Blair, co-founder of anti-nuke campaigners Global Zero, told Daily Star Online: “2017 was a bad year for the clock and portends a worse year with the distinct possibility of a catastrophe of global proportions.

“The gravest risk of all is the North Korea-US flashpoint, which worsened considerably over Kim's long-rang missile test successes and Trump's response with ‘bloody nose’ planning.

"We are on a collision course that could crash in early to mid 2018 and escalate quickly from conventional to nuclear conflict, and possibly draw China into the conflict.

We do not subscribe to this view as there will be no man made Doomsday that God will allow.  God has said that he will "destroy those who would destroy the earth" Rev 11:15-18.  However what is very significant here is that the increase in man made problems are a sign of the nearness of Christ's Return to this Earth.  World problems are a clear sign of the nearness of Chirst's return to this Earth to Establish God's Kingdom as Promised as we read in Luke 21:25-28

"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
