In the Face of Washington’s Threats, North Korea Readies Another Nuclear Test

Sputnik News – May 1, 2017

On Monday Pyongyang declared that it was ready to conduct its sixth nuclear test whenever leadership deemed appropriate, as the North Korean capital continues trading shows of force with Washington.

The North is “fully ready to respond to any option taken by the US,” according to a statement published by the Korean Central News Agency from a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman, who added that “measures for bolstering the nuclear force to the maximum will be taken in a consecutive and successive way at any moment and any place decided by its supreme leadership.”

Although tensions between Washington and Pyongyang looked as though they may ease somewhat in recent weeks, as the US considered going into talks with the North, the US’ refusal to rule out military action combined with Pyongyang’s recent pronouncements have again strained the possibility of a diplomatic resolution.

“Have you seen this? He asked.  It is nothing to the people of Judah that they commit these terrible sins, leading the whole nation into idolatry, thumbing their noses at me and arousing my fury against them?” Ezek 8:17 (Living Bible)

The people of Judah were “thumbing their noses” at God.  Could it be that North Korea is doing the same to America?  North Korea is unsteady.  Their leader is quite young and many young men do not handle fame very well.  Kim Jong-Un is the head of a totalitarian society that is obsessed with the downfall of the United States.

Need America be worried?  God promises many blessings for obedience to His Law.  One of those blessings is Godly protection from our enemies.

“Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments and do them; …

And ye shall chase your enemies and they shall fall before you by the sword.

And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.”  Lev 26:2-3, 7-8

100 to 10,000 equates to 1 to 100.  This is the protection given by Almighty God, so the U.S should have no problem if the odds are against them.  The only question is, does America obey God?
