Well, it has been over a week. What has been done? Has either the US or the UN imposed sanctions?
The Bangkok Post posted the article “Fury in Seoul, Tokyo over NKorea [sic]” on 6 April 2009. The entire region is in an uproar over it. A non-response by either the UN or the US is likely to shed a dim light on commitment to the region.
I have a friend who was worried about the missile launch. I told her that North Korea isn’t who we should be worried about.
Back when the USSR still existed, many contemporary prophets were predicting war with the USSR. The Church of God has predicted from HWA on that it is a coming United States of Europe that will be the power to be wary of.
The defiant actions of countries like North Korea are not so much a threat because of what they might do as they are a symptom that the US has lost credibility as a world power.
And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.
And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
~ Lev 26:18-21
Yet, we continue to walk contrary to God. In fact, we are getting worse, it appears. Newsweek reports in “The End of Christian America” that the 2009 American Religious Identification Survey shows that the “percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 points in the past two decades. How that statistic explains who we are now — and what, as a nation, we are about to become.” I would suggest to you that Leviticus 26 and Deutoronomy 28 answers that question!
