Israel has cause for great concern over North Korea's nuclear test

The former head of Israel's Atomic Energy Commission, Uzi Eilam, says that Israel has cause to be very concerned about North Korea's nuclear test for a number of reasons; number one being the possibility that North Korea would share its nuclear know-how with Iran in return for a sizeable financial reward.

Another reason Eilam says the Israeli government must be concerned is that Syria, which is also under heavy international pressure, could look at North Korea's example and decide to actively push for its own nuclear capability. Eilam believes that the world must be concerned as well because North Korea's experiment means they now have successfully produced a device whose core is the heart of a nuclear bomb.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The successful testing of a nuclear device by North Korea has much prophetic significance for the Bible prophecy scenario of the Last Days.

Diplomacy has failed with North Korea and the world has witnessed the successful testing of an advanced nuclear device that could become a threat to the Middle East and in fact the entire world. Even China, North Korea's patron saint, could not keep this rogue state in the far East from taking the next step to have a nuclear weapon that could not only be used by the North Koreans, but terrorist groups and the states that sponsor terrorism around the world.

The scenario that could and most likely will develop is a page out of Bible prophecy, in fact several pages out of Bible prophecy. North Korea, a nation in need of financial help to provide for their people, could well make a deal with Iran to advance their nuclear program. Syria, who would love to have nuclear capability, could partner with North Korea and work to acquire the materials to become a nuclear state. Both Iran and Syria are states that will align themselves against Israel in the Last Days, that's Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, and Daniel 11. Revelation 16:12 speaks of the kings of the East who will also come against Israel in the End Times and North Korea could be included in those kings.

North Korea's nuclear test is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
