Video: A Brief Book Update and Talking about World War 3

In this video, I provide a brief update on a Bible prophecy book that I am working on and I answer a couple of questions that a reader posed relating directly or indirectly to an event known as World War 3. You can view the video at the following link if you are unable to see it in this article.

Many people associate World War 3 with the end times. I am not so sure that World War 3 will occur during the end times. The reason I don’t fully link World War 3 with the end times is that I think it is possible that the next world war could be a catalyst to prepare the world for the rise of Antichrist in a similar way that World War 1 was a catalyst of global change that helped sow the seeds for World War 2. However, I do believe there will be global conflict during the end times. There probably will be a world war after the opening of the second seal as the rider of the red horse takes away peace from the earth.

“(3) And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. (4) And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” (Revelation 6:3-4)

I definitely believe there will be a world war after the sounding of the sixth trumpet when 200 million soldiers will be connected to the deaths of 1/3 of the total inhabitants of the earth.

“(13) And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, (14) Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. (15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (16) And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. (17) And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. (18) By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” (Revelation 9:13-18)

In theory, I think there could at least be four or even five world wars total (World War 1, World War 2, World War 3, World War 4, and perhaps World War 5) before Christ’s kingdom begins on Earth.

I mentioned while addressing the second question in the video that every nation on Earth would someday attack Israel, particularly the city of Jerusalem. Here are two passages from Zechariah that support this statement (and an example of the type of table I mentioned in my video).

 All Nations Someday Will Attack the People of Israel
 All Nations Involved  Target of Attack
Zechariah 14:1-2: (1) Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. (2) For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Zechariah 12:2-3: (2) Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. (3) And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

I hope this article and video has been informative. If there is anything you want me to answer in a future video please leave me a comment. I may take your question(s) under consideration (and I don’t intend on it being another eight months before I make the next video).

Hi! I’ve studied and written about Bible prophecy since I was a teenager. My goal is to make Bible prophecy easy for you to understand while avoiding the sensationalism seen elsewhere. I am the author of several end time books, including Prophecy Proof Insights on the End Times, a comprehensive book about the end times. I hold an M.B.A. and degrees in Managerial Economics and Political Science.

  1. Wayne, are you familiar with XML and native XML database technologies such as eXist-db? If you’re still working on formatting your book, it is possible that using a native XML database could be helpful. Here is an example application for reference: If you click the ‘try it’ icon, you will see several links of books that are generated on-the-fly from XML to e-book format. Just a thought.

  2. Today Obama has made this Chamberlain-deal with Iran.

    “Peace in our time”.

    “*What will happen between President Bush second and third visit to Israel that will cause the USA elections to be cancelled? It says in the Zohar HaKadosh that Iran will bomb the USA and in response, the USA will make international wars against all the Arab countries that opposes her.”

    The election is in year 5777 or 2016.

    Netanyahu has warned Obama.

    “Yesterday an Iranian general brazenly declared and I quote: ‘Israel’s destruction is non-negotiable.’ But evidently giving Iran’s murderous regime a clear path to the bomb is negotiable,” he said. “This is unconscionable.”

    We have entered the last 13 years of these 6000 years.
    Year 2028 is the great Jubilee.

    Antichrist will soon return.
    “When President Bush will return to Israel for the THIRD time, it will not be as the previous president of the USA, but rather the whole world will know that he is HaShem’s elected PRESIDENT GOG.”

    • Hey Torstein, are you aware there is another Bush? Jeb? He can run for president. So you see, you don’t have to keep saying that Bush will come back to the presidency, which by all our laws is impossible. Why don’t you hop on the Jeb Bush wagon for a change? At least it would give us a break from the same old rhetoric. Sorry Wayne, can’t help myself. Getting very tired of this.

      • Why do I repeat the same things about Antichrist- GOG?
        Its important to tell it BEFORE it happens.
        Number 8 will return. He is one of the seven.
        Jeb Bush is not a fulfillment of this prophecy if he was elected.
        The bible tells us that all people will be astonished when the beast returns.

        Netanyahu tells us what will happen in near future.
        Iran will develop the nuclear bomb and use it.

        Habakkuk 2 writes about the Antichrist.
        He is called “death and hell”.
        He is the leader of endtime Babylon- USA.
        His words are smoother than oil.

        “For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,
        but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
        sharp as a two-edged sword.
        Her feet go down to DEATH;
        her steps follow the path to SHEOL;
        she does not ponder the path of life;
        her ways wander, and she does not know it. Proverbs 5

        Psalm 55 says:

        “He (ANTICHRIST) hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath BROKEN HIS COVENANT.

        21 The words of his mouth were SMOOTHER than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were SOFTER THAN OIL, yet were they drawn swords.”

        Israel will be deceived by GOG BUSH when he conquers Israels enemies.

        “Iran will bomb the USA and in response, the USA will make INTERNATIONAL WARS AGAINST all the Arab countries that opposes her.”

        The 6000 years are almost finished.

        Then the millennium will start.

        • Be careful when stating that something “will” happen unless you’re 100% sure it’s in the Bible. I prefer to use the terms “likely” or “probably” when I think something will happen but it’s based on my opinion.

          • Dear Wayne Croley.
            I have read a lot of what you have written.
            I can see how God has shown you almost exactly the SAME things as He has shown me.
            You wrote about the correct 6000 years earlier (2028) and the Jubileecycle.



            We know that Antichrist will we the leader these 7 last years.

            “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

            24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

            25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” Daniel 8.

            This is the person we are waiting for. He is called the LAWLESS.

            Barnabas says this:


            “Barnabas 15:4
            Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He
            meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all
            things to an end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years;
            and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of
            the Lord shall be as a thousand years. Therefore, children, in six
            days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end.

            Barnabas 15:5
            And He rested on the seventh day. this He meaneth; when His Son
            shall come, and shall abolish the time of the LAWLESS ONE, and shall
            judge the ungodly, and shall change the sun and the moon and the
            stars, then shall he truly rest on the seventh day.”

            We are now in the year 2015.
            The last 7 years (2028-7) start about year 2021.

            The Antichrist will need some time to gather the nations around him as Habakkuk and Isaiah says.

            “Behold, his (ANTICHRIST) soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

            5 Yea also, because he(ANTICHRIST) transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but GATHERETH UNTO HIM ALL NATIONS, and heapeth unto him all people:

            6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him.”

            S.Shearer says these words:


            “Thus, we can without much fear of contradiction dismiss the possibility that these “seven kings” as such refer to seven nations; we are then left with the thought that the riddle is referencing different PERSONS – i.e., seven rulers who appear in succession to one another as world-rulers in the “Latter Days” – AND IN THE “LATTER DAYS” THE ONLY RULERS THAT COUNT ARE U.S. PRESIDENTS, THE “KINGS” OVER MODERN BABYLON”.

            In these next 5 years we have to SEE the Antichrist arrive as the world-leader.

            Everything is settled for the BIG event, when Iran bombs the USA.
            All people will awake and almost all of them will follow the BEAST in the “WAR ON TERROR”.


            Israel will be deceived by their BEST FRIEND.

            “For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

            13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

            14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the HOUSE OF GOD in company.” Psalm 55

            How many understand what “the HOUSE OF GOD” is ?

            “Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”

            We are close to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.

            Antichrist will defeat Israels enemies in this next war and Israel will as prophecy says rebuilt the Temple on the templemount.

            My adress was earlier 5777 GRIMO.
            2016 and election will occur year 5777 (Jewish).
            I now live in 5781 LOFTHUS.
            In year 5781 (Jewish) the covenant will be made between Antichrist an the nation of Israel.

            Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:…
            And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.” Isaiah 28

            Israel will make this covenant with “DEATH an HELL”-the Antichrist.

            We know that this will lead to “Jacobs trouble”.

            “Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

            7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.”

            Soon all sincere people will understand who the BEAST will be.

            “neBUSHadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel, he hath swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out.” Jer.51,34

        • I think you’ve fulfilled your need on this site to tell your message “before it happens.” You’ve repeated it enough times here to make your point numerous times over. How about finding some new places to spread your thoughts if you are so concerned everybody hear them? There are hundreds if not thousands of other sites available to you. Try Youtube. There’s plenty of interaction going on there.

          If you think by beating people to death with the same message over and over here you will force them to accept it, I can reassure you that things don’t work that way. People will either accept what you say, or they won’t. Continuing to beat them over the head with it isn’t going to make them accept it. Oh and I agree with one thing you said. When the 6000 years are over (and only God knows when that is), then the next millennium will start.

          • When the 6000 years are over (and only God knows when that is), then the next millennium will start

            The Bible has given us the 6000 years.


            The jubileecycle is important to understand.

            Yeshua read from Isaiah 61 in a Jubilee.

            Then the last 40 Jubilees started.

            He did not read the last sentence:

            “To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the DAY OF VENGEANCE our God “.

            That will be fulfilled on Yom Kippur after 6000 years.

            It is important to keep the Sabbath
            and not follow the false apostle Paul.

            It is a pity that many people are to early with the ending of these 6000 years or 120 jubilees.


            Noah repeated day after day the same message to the people of the earth.

            “And the sons of men assembled together, about seven hundred thousand men and women, and they came unto Noah to the ark.
            And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark–and wherefore shall we die?
            And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them from the ark, saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist? and therefore the Lord brought upon you this evil, to destroy and cut you off from the face of the earth.
            Is not this the thing that I spoke to you of one hundred and twenty years back, and you would not hearken to the voice of the Lord, and now do you desire to live upon earth?
            And they said to Noah, We are ready to return to the Lord; only open for us that we may live and not die.
            And Noah answered them, saying, Behold now that you see the trouble of your souls, you wish to return to the Lord; why did you not return during these hundred and twenty years, which the Lord granted you as the determined period?”


            I cant understand why you should prevent me from telling the story about Antichrist.

            It is one of the most important messages in the Bible.

            “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,..”

            I might be a little to early, but the first message is about the Yom Kippur and Judgmentday.

            “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

            7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

            8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”

            Its very important to understand who is “Babylon”.


            When you understand who babylon is you have the clue to understand these words:

            “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH….
            The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”

        • Oh, I have no idea who is in the running at this point. I’m waiting to see who will even be the final candidate. I’m just getting weary of the George Bush thing. Thought maybe a new Bush would ease the monotony.

  3. Sounds good. I want to learn proper formatting for ebooks (I used a template for my two short Christian Sci-Fi stories). I can’t even imagine formatting all those colors and charts. I’d go berserk. But, you’re a techy kind of guy, so I’m sure it will look beautiful.

    God bless.
