Nuclear War – To Be or Not To Be
By Terry James

There are growing worries among politicians and pundits about the likelihood of nuclear war on the brink. That is, the fear that the Russian/Ukrainian conflict will soon break out in all-out nuclear exchanges.

The Biden administration sending troops to areas such as in Poland to demonstrate to Vladimir Putin America’s determination to thwart Russia’s aggression is at the center of the concern. NATO’s bellicose threats, and particularly rhetoric by European governments, add to the angst.

At the same time, reports coming out of Russia tell that Russian TV broadcasts are announcing that American cities are in Russia’s targeting plans if nuclear war is unleashed. One pundit, who is an author promoting his book, and who is, to my way of thinking, one who believes Americans should prep for nuclear war, says that Russia’s understanding is that the first nation to launch all-out nuclear war has the best chance of surviving as a nation.

Here is some of that cogitating by a book author who simply calls himself “Michael.”

“There will be nuclear war if we stay on this path. Almost every day, we get more news about how both sides are escalating the conflict in Ukraine. If the American people truly understood what was at stake, there would be giant protests in the streets of every major U.S. city right now. But they don’t. Most of us are entirely convinced that our leaders can do whatever they want in Ukraine without sparking a nuclear war. But the Russians see things very differently. On Russian television there are endless discussions about how the war in Ukraine is really a proxy war between the United States and Russia, and pundits openly discuss the possibility that eventually nuclear weapons will be used. In fact, the destruction of specific U.S. cities has even been discussed on Russian television, but most Americans never hear anything about this…

Unfortunately, our leaders seem to have no interest in ending the conflict in Ukraine. Instead, they just keep doing things to raise tensions even higher.” (“If We Keep Escalating This Conflict, the End Result Will Be a Nuclear Cataclysm,” Michael, End Of The American Dream 2022, Rapture Ready News, July 2, 2022)


President Biden said he will be sending thousands of American troops to Eastern Europe, particularly to the area of Poland. Additionally, he plans to send many ships and planes, as well as tremendous battle-support equipment of various kinds.

He announced that the US will reinforce troop deployments in Romania, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. NATO will enhance its battle groups in the eastern part of the alliance up to brigade levels, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg announced Monday.

The writer of the article concludes that all of this looks to Vladimir Putin to be an invasion of Russian-overseen territory. The Russian leader, himself, is ratcheting up military action by placing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles in Belarus, a NATO-neighboring Russian ally that housed the forces that invaded Ukraine and attacked Kiev.

There is talk of Russia looking at Cuba as an area near America to place Russian missiles. The writer says that should set off alarm bells to those who might remember the year 1962. And, speaking as one who does well remember that year and the Cuban Missile Crisis, it will indeed set off alarm bells if it eventuates.

So, like the question by William Shakespeare’s character, Prince Hamlet, in his soliloquy in a scene in the play by the same name, “To be, or not to be, that is the question,” we ask. “Nuclear war: To be, or not to be?”

I believe the answer is both “no” and “yes.”

The writer of the article gives statistics informing, according to supposed experts, just how total would be a nuclear war between, primarily, the United States and Russia. While the outlook is bleak, there would be many survivors. As a matter of fact, he reported only about 20 percent of people in America would be killed initially by the horrific weapons used. But there would be many more who would starve to death due to weather-related crop failures because of nuclear radioactive fallout and health-related radiation factors.

Like always, we look to God’s Word for answers. And it is there we find both answers above, I’m of the opinion.

“No,” there will not be nuclear war as described by all the people who, rightfully, castigate the military-industrial complex for war-mongering. This is because Jesus, Himself, tells us that people will be buying, selling, planting, building, marrying, etc. — normal activity right up to the time He next catastrophically intervenes into the affairs of mankind. It will be just like in the days of Lot, He said (Luke 17:26–30).

First, Lot and his family, living in a wicked but very prosperous city, were removed to Zoar. Then God nuked both Sodom and Gomorrah–to such an extent that they are just now finding evidence of the destruction of those totally debauched cities.

So the second answer, “yes,” is found in that same story. It will be like in Lot’s day. So there will be great nuclear-level destruction.

Of course, this will take place after the next event on God’s prophetic calendar: the Rapture of the Church.

We see pre-proof of this coming nuclear destruction, for example, when the kings of the east kill up to one-third of all the people of earth when they cross the Euphrates into the occidental world. The ability to destroy that vast number of human beings almost certainly has to be from nuclear weaponry.

I really am convinced that there will be no all-out nuclear war – no World War III – this side of the Rapture.

But there is a matter even more pressing than the fear of nuclear war. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Savior from the sin into which you and I were born, you will face much worse than nuclear devastation. You will spend eternity in everlasting torment, apart from God, who loves you and wants you to be with Him.

Here is how to make certain you will go into His presence either at death or when Jesus calls believers to Himself in the Rapture.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” – (Romans 10:9–10)

I had heard reports of the Russians wanting to set up missiles again in Cuba. If they do that it will not end well as it did last time. Biden and his crew do not have the ability of John F. Kennedy and his advisors to successfully navigate such a situation. Matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden just shrugs his shoulders and does nothing about it. Our military is in the process of being destroyed from within and at this rate we won’t have the ability to do much beyond sticking our tongues out at them and giving them the one finger salute. As tensions increase in the world, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some nuclear incidents occur. Not a big conflagration but selected strikes.

I remember the goading of Russia by Zelenski and western leaders before the actual invasion. I can see the Russian perspective that this is a proxy war between US/Europe and Russia. The whole thing is unfortunate but I can see how it came to be.

As for a nuclear exchange, I can't rule it out. The US is not prepared for that in any way shape or form. If I'm not mistaken, Russia is better prepared to survive a nuclear exchange. A limited nuclear exchange is most plausible, with the two leaders speaking to each other while in their respective underground bunkers and agreeing not to lob more nukes at each other. Of course, diben wouldn't know what was going on, he'd just be parroting whatever he's told to say so he doesn't get in trouble.

Whatever comes, we'll do the best we can under the circumstances while keeping our eyes on the prize.

Concur. I doubt there will be a global nuclear exchange, but a limited tactical exchange IMO is highly likely before the rapture.

Let Russia come in Cuba, God have a purpose will destroy Cuba if possible weather to be serious destroy path or not? Who knows. Be honest God is control everything path.

Jesus/God asking us to trust in Him no matter what situation be rejoice and be glad in Lord is full control.

Yes our prize is the Kingdom of our God Jesus Christ eternal ! He tells us not to fear I have moments of fear but I refuse to let it overtake me . What He has prepared for those who know Him can not be compared to anything we now are going through!!! I truly can't wait and will endure whatever it takes until then. We have too!

Amen to that. I feel exactly the same. Nuclear war is coming, as is global financial collapse. But first comes the rapture of the church (which means everyone who believes in Jesus, not everyone who goes to church). I think what the continued talk of nuclear war, WWIII, and economic collapse tells us is not that the people who see it coming are wrong, they are right on this occasion, but rather that it tells us how close the rapture is. God alone is holding back all these things until the rapture.

WWII, the attack on Pearl Harbour, the first shots of WWI, and the Great Depression didn't come out of nowhere, but one day, suddenly they were upon us. I believe that the rapture is similar. We see the build up. One day it will happen, and then in the chaos and confusion mankind will not come together, but all our nightmares will be unleashed as the predicted nuclear war and economic collapse take place.

"Sudden destruction" came AFTER "and they knew not and the flood came and took them all away" ...we who are watching and praying are just able to see and discern that THAT time is drawing near but only spectators shall we be. We are seeing the storm clouds form, we see the waves and hear the roars but we are in the Life Boat with Jesus and He would be saying "Oh ye of little faith, TRUST ME." Psalms 18:30 As for God, His way is perfect, all the Lord's promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to Him for protection.

I think you mean 3 dollar bill. I carry a couple 2 dollar bills with me in my wallet because they're cool, but they're totally real :lol

Don't forget the "deer in the headlights" looks the teens give you when you spend them, and the laughs from the cops when they arrive. LOL
