The nuclear watchdogs at the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists reset the hands of the symbolic Doomsday Clock 5 minutes to midnight and they did this in response to what they see as a major danger in this world with the proliferation of nuclear activity around the world. The bulletin's scientific board includes Professor Stephen Hawking and 18 other Nobel Laureates who watch what they consider global threats and they have changed the time on this Doomsday Clock 18 times over the years.
Setting the clock to 5 minutes to Armageddon was to alert the world of the potential for nuclear destruction in the near future.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
As a group of scientists set the Doomsday Clock to 5 minutes before Armageddon, they do so to warn our world of a coming catastrophic event that is at least 7 years into the future - that is according to Bible prophecy.
Renowned scientists, including Stephen Hawking and 18 other Nobel Laureates, have warned the world of a nuclear danger that is very close in their opinion. To emphasize their concern they set the famous Doomsday Clock at 5 minutes before Armageddon as they see it. Their concerns come from the proliferation of nuclear development of weapons of mass destruction in many nations of our world with many other countries looking into the prospects for nuclear armament. North Korea and Iran are both developing nuclear weapons of mass destruction and this action has the world on edge. The only problem with this promotion of resetting the Doomsday Clock to 5 minutes before Armageddon is that Bible prophecy reveals that Armageddon is at least 7 years into the future.
The next event on God's calendar of prophetic events is the Rapture when all Christians are taken into heaven (Revelation 4:1). Revelation 4:2 - 19:10 gives us detailed information of the 7 year period of time known as the Tribulation, a terrible time of judgment on the earth. Revelation 19:11 foretells the return of the Messiah Jesus Christ to the earth and it is at that time that the Battle of Armageddon takes place - found in the rest of Revelation 19.
Even though scientists are wrong with the setting of the Doomsday Clock at 5 minutes before Armageddon, this time of judgment is indeed in our future. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
