Followers of Christ have claimed a third world war is on its way, but have failed to give a clue as to when.
But they state the signs have already begun and believe a global war could come to fruition sooner rather than later.
And at the end of the war, Jesus Christ will return where he will rule over Earth.
Conspiracy theorists point to the verse Matthew 24:6-7 which says there will be “wars and rumours of wars…For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”
Believers have inevitably linked the “rumours of war” to that of tension between North Korea and the US.
They add the spate of huge quakes around the globe recently, such as heightened activity on the Ring of Fire, are the aforementioned earthquakes.
According to biblical website Got Questions: “Here, Christ makes it very clear that war will play a significant role in the last seven years prior to His return.
“To be more specific, the future does hold at least one more world war.
“Take special notice that it says the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Christ. This clearly describes a world war.
“It also should be noted that the victor in this war is clearly Christ, who seizes the beast/antichrist and the false prophet and casts them into the lake of fire, and the armies that followed them are destroyed.”
Some Christians believe World War 3 will start this year.
Serial predictor David Meade, who previously claimed the world would end on September 23 and November 19 in 2017, says WW3 will start in 2018.
He said North Korea will commence World War Three later this year and the fabled Planet X – a mythical planet that is allegedly heading towards our solar system and will knock Earth off its axis and cause widespread destruction – will appear.
Mr Meade said: “Halfway through the Tribulation the Antichrist declares himself in the rebuilt Hebrew temple in Jerusalem. There’s major trouble from that point forward. Everything escalates a hundredfold.
“The Antichrist’s time is brief (a full 3.5 years) but he wrecks havoc on the earth in that time. He creates nuclear wars and as a result there is famine and pestilence.”
